All updated appliances, easy access to the pool and beach

We were very disappointed! The bathroom and floors were filthy when we arrived. I bought cleaner and cleaned them myself before we could even start our vacation. We were scheduled to stay 6 nights, we stayed 3 nights and then got a hotel room because the construction was ridiculous. There was no parking for us, we had to walk completely around the entire facility to get to our room. We should’ve been notified that this was going to be an inconvenience, had we known the construction was going on, we would’ve never stayed here. Also, we tried to contact the number left for us for “Ashley”, we called 9 times and never received a call back. And, the pool filter needs cleaned! We have a pool at home and this pool was not filtering the water. We went to get in the pool and see all kinds of hair and junk floating. Highly disappointed!

no parking, no towel service. no one to talk to if you have an issue and our condo wasn’t ready by check in. it took them hours to get clean and they did a very fast clean up leaving dirty bedding and didn’t take the time to properly sanitized the condo. my husbands family has stayed here for over 20 years and we won’t be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, Diedrich. We sincerely apologize that the home was in this condition upon your arrival - please know that this is not the regular standard for our properties. We appreciate you notifying us promptly so that we could take the appropriate steps toward a resolution. Our records show that our local team returned to the home as soon as we were made aware of the situation, delivered additional linens, and provided compensation for dinner while housekeeping re-cleaned the home. While we know your faith in us has been shaken by this experience, we truly hope that you'll give us the chance to provide you with the Vacasa experience we pride ourselves on in the future.

The condo was very quaint, pool side. The beach and water was beautiful. The staff was super friendly! I loved this resort !

Overall we had a really wonderful stay! We usually would have stayed closer to town, but this was a quick trip as we had a few friends getting married on a beach in Fort Morgan. This unit is updated and very nice! We were aware going in that there would be some construction noise, but we barely heard any.

The pros:
Beach access was pretty easy, even for this unit that is toward the back of the complex.
GREAT pool view! You can’t really tell from these pics, but the landscaping between the pool and patio has been cut back some and the pool is RIGHT there! There is another pool and hot tub on site as well.
Updated unit was in great shape!
TONS of outlets, which we really appreciated.
TV access with streaming services! This was great because it rained about 80% of the few days we were there so we actually got a lot of use from this.
Kitchen appliances were all updated and in working condition!

The cons:
Parking wasn’t available near the unit as stated, we had to park quite far away as they said the construction around the building made it a tow away zone. We were still able to pull fairly close to load/unload.
Pillows could have been much better, but we found the extras in the closet after the first night and the second pillows helped a lot!
Could have used a coffee table (thought this probably wouldn’t have been an issue if it hadn’t been raining until noon each day we were there, we only noticed because we spent so much time inside)
We could have also used a full length mirror, maybe on the back of one of the closet doors? Not a necessity but would have been nice.

Overall, the stay was really great! The grounds are beautiful and security was thorough, made us feel very safe. The beach is well kept and has chairs on the beach (though it looked like Fri-Sun they charge a minimal fee for them). Sassy Bass market and restaurant down the road was AWESOME (the one on site was still closed but I hear they hope to reopen VERY soon)! Also, we left coffee filters and so did the person before us-so there should be plenty for a while LOL! Thank you for a great stay!!

When we arrived the whole area was under construction and we were told to park quite a distance. I complained and they told me too bad The whole time we were their no one worked in our parking area The room was clean but things were broken. I would never stay there again.

Great studio with a view of the pool. Convenient to the beach and surprisingly very quiet.
Megan D. Jul 2020
Condo was clean and updated. We loved that it was so close to the pool and beach was close by.
Clint H. May 2020
This room is in an easy access area and is perfect for a couple. We really enjoyed our week here and this room was great for us
Shelley C. Mar 2020
Place is exactly how the pictures present. It was clean and updated. The description says it’s “beach front”, it is not. But there is a balcony that looks out to the pool. And the different pool areas are nice. The walk to the beach from the pool was great. Definitely just a spot for a couple and maybe 1-2 child. Overall great place to stay!

I paid for a studio with ocean view and balcony and we were put in a condo on first floor, with a view of a palm tree and swimming pool right out our slider. Last building in the back of property.

PATRICIA S. Jul 2019

Vita B. May 2019
Such a neat place to be at. People are friendly, apartment had everything to meet my needs. Had a very nice, relaxing vacation. Wish I had opportunity to stay another week :)
Stanley B. Feb 2019
Yes, We really enjoyed our stay for the 19 days. We would have stayed the whole month but we had sick family members. We have already started looking forward to next feb 2020 ? The studio condo was perfect for the 2 of us. We appreciated the supply of det, paper towels etc to getus started. No one wants to shop after traveling so far to get to our rental. Thank you so much for having a rental for us to come to. Also a hottub , pools etc.

The room was very nicely finished and in a great location. The bed was comfortable and we were very happy with our stay. We plan on coming back!
Jamie C. Nov 2018
wow so much fun! My sister and I wanted a quick getaway and this place is perfect. A restaurant on sight, quick walk to the beach, 2 pools, super cute room and comfy bed. Loved it. I will definitely be staying again.
Dina E. Oct 2018
It was a great unit for a couple. Newly updated and very clean. Really only complaint we had is that it said ocean view and it’s pool view!
Matt F. Sep 2018
This Condo is 15 steps from the pool and 15 steps from the parkin lot. It does need a thorough scrubbing but is a great unit
