We had a group of three families with teenagers and the house had plenty of space for us. The beach front location was a huge fit for all of us, the kitchen was large enough (and well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, plates, etc.) to cook for our group.

Our family loved this Ft Mortgage beach front home. We had plenty of space, & the location was absolutely perfect. We appreciated that it was pet friendly. Our dog is our baby. We enjoyed our Christmas getaway, & would love to stay there again one day.

Plenty of room for 10 adults and a 2 yo.
Plenty of parking for our 3 vehicles. Great beach access. Nice outdoor space. The neighborhood is towards the western edge of Orange beach in a quieter area,
there was a significant leak in the dining room from a recent roof repair. The management were very prompt and pleasant in dealing with the issue. It leaked again during our stay and apparently would require repair.
Our only downgrade was for the beds. Everyone complained that theirs sagged in the middle.
Overall a very enjoyable house! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

This house was perfectly located right on the beach. The space and layout was great for multiple families vacationing together. However, the home really needed a good cleaning, the ceiling continued to leak in two places while we were there leaving the carpet in one bedroom area damp, and there were TVs in every bedroom (more than one TV in a couple bedrooms) in the house but most of them didn’t work. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Location was excellent but maintenance, cleanliness, and communication were poorly executed. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I wish I had paid more attention to all the reviews talking about the run down condition and cleanliness issues of this property because history repeats itself. We arrived to a dirty house with beds not fully made (we had to put the top sheets on) and a leaking toilet. Air conditioner upstairs does not put out enough air in 2 of the 3 bedrooms. The air filters were deplorable and the upholstered furniture was just plain nasty. I spent hours and hours cleaning. The vacuum cleaner didn’t work and the broom provided would be better used as a Halloween prop. I reported all items and it took over 24 hours for someone to come fix the toilet that was leaking all over the bathroom. After this was fixed, it overflowed after the first use and sent poop out all over the bathroom and carpet of the attached bedroom. We reported this and they sent someone out 8 hours later to fix the toilet again but no one to clean up all the mess(we were told the person coming to fix it could also clean up) The person fixing the toilet walked through all the poop and walked all around the house in the same shoes spreading poop all through the house. Someone finally came to clean up the poop, steam clean the carpets (over 24 hours after it happened) but had to leave huge equipment to dry the carpets and remove moisture. No one could sleep in the bedroom or use that bedroom for 2 nights because of this. The kicker to all this...I got a call today saying they were requesting that WE pay $786 because of the clogged toilet!! It was used once!! There was obviously something wrong with it to begin with since it was leaking so bad but they tried to put a bandaid on it instead of actually fixing the problem. I honestly thought the person calling today wanted to give us more money back (we did get $425 of the cleaning fee back) to make up for all we had to deal with during our vacation. I’m glad we took hundreds of pictures and have pages of texts to prove all of this. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

First the greats; the location is wonderful. The beach isn`t too crowded and the house set up allowed the older family member to watch the young ones playing on the sand and in the ocean without venturing off the deck. There are many nice touches (the ice machine, number of exterior wash stations, the grill), which you appreciate if you spend any time at the beach. The rooms where great and there was plenty of space for our group of ten. There are two different AC controls, which is also nice so that the people upstairs are able to stay comfortable at night. There are also some games to play which was great for the family when we weren`t outside.

There were a couple of lows. The house wasn`t as clean as I would have expected and the couch, carpet, and bedding all had some minor stains. I guess that isn`t too odd for a rental but at the price point I wouldn`t have expected that. The dish washer lower rack was broken but should be easily fixed. Housekeeping didn`t leave enough towels, dish soap, or TP for a group of 10 for a week. Lastly, there were workers fixing the exterior of the home during our stay. We weren`t notified and what we were told after they showed up at the property was that it would be 4 hours of work. Unfortunately whatever they were fixing became 3 days worth of work. More any inconvenience and moderately annoying when you just want to relax.

All in all, the property is nice and the location is quite amazing. There is some room for improvement but not enough to detract from our stay. We would go back. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house looks exactly like the photos. We liked that there were 4 king size beds with their own bathrooms. Having a private boardwalk to the beach was great and convenient. We loved that the beach was just steps away. The house was located closer to Ft Morgan. I didn’t realize that and I should have looked at
the map. The house cleaning team was still there at 4:30 pm when we arrived. One of the showers upstairs had seaweed and sand still in the shower. Unfortunately, an exterminator stopped by the house. During our stay, we had to dispose of 4 dead mice from the mouse traps. Two dead mice were found in kitchen, near the tall table and the other two were found near the industrial ice making machine. The exterminator said he was there 3 weeks prior to seal the hole where he felt the mice were coming in the house. He said he either sealed the mice outside or inside the house. Obviously, he sealed at least 4 mice inside the house. I felt we should have been told there had been an exterminator there to take care of the mice. The bottom rack of the dishwasher was difficult to pull out and push back in, because it came off of the track easily. It was like that when we arrived.

The home is very nice but very disappointed to find out it has small rats and was told by the property management that they couldn`t do anything about it, since the property didn`t have any pantry space we had to put our food on a shelf they had in the dining room to discover something was eating all the food on the shelf and found rat dropping everywhere. We called turnkey and asked if they could please come and put traps out and was told NO because Alabama mice are protected species but after we caught and released with our traps we had to purchase they were small rats, I googled Alabama mice and these were much larger. After a few text with the property management I was told they are aware of the problem but have had several people decline on catching them, rats and mice carry diseases and we had three small children and pregnant lady there and I hope no one catches anything on top of having to trash most of the food since the rats ate part of it. I feel like we should have been told before booking when spending over 13,000.00 for the week that the home has small rats. I will never visit this place again or will I recommend it.

Nice home in great location. We enjoyed staying here. We had a major issue, no WiFi, which we need for work and entertainment on the TV`s. We called/texted/emailed the managmentment company on Sat/Sun, they sent a rep out Sunday evening, but still no WiFi on Monday. We called/texted/emailed Mon/Tue/Wed, they send same rep out Wednesday, we had WiFi for 24 hours, then lost again. That was a Real problem for us.
