Two of them have built-in twins and views of the Gulf, ideal for stargazing or watching out for pirates and shipwrecks! Each has its own private bath. The north side of the house has two bunk rooms as well as another queen bedroom with a twin bunk. This bedroom has a private bathroom. The bunk rooms share the hall bathroom. Come see our sugar-white sands that are ideal for building sandcastles. Stroll up the beach and see remnants of a shipwrecked hull on the beach and dream of pirates and scenes of the past.

The house had everything we needed. Driveway is long and private, the pool was perfect, the beach was perfect. There is a convenient store/shop a quarter mile down the street that you can access from the street or beach and that made for nice little walks to get the toiletries or groceries we may have forgotten to pack. Fort Morgan was a lovely, less populated beach and stretch of road. We loved everything about the long weekend. At the time of our stay there were some beach chairs and a grill that we could use. The only issue we ran into with the whole rental process was vacasa support not having some of the details/intimate knowledge of the property and area. Vacasa property management/business model is just a little different than we were accustomed to from hosts on other rental platforms and they did not have correct or specific details that we were interested in (pool floats, beach chairs/umbrellas, driveway space for parking, local recommendations etc). I think it's just the difference of a different rental platform, but all in all, we had everything we needed and the payment/management process with Vacasa was all very smooth! All the bedrooms are spacious and it was easy to sleep our big group of 23. Everyone agreed we would come back year over year - all in all a great stay!

We loved the house. The setup was perfect. I had a few questions when we first arrived and contacted the owner and she answered immediately. The house has everything you will need. The only thing I noticed was there were not any blankets on the beds and it got pretty chilly. But, it was no problem we went and bought a few. My daughter got married at the house and it was absolutely beautiful. I can’t say enough about the house. ❤️
Spacious kitchen and dining area, boardwalk to the beach was great. There was a problem With the pool that was eventually fixed, but it took multiple calls and trips over 2 days. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Beautiful property! Very private — we liked the long ramp to the beach which was always isolated. We also liked the four king beds and the layout — lots of room. But we had issues with the pool heater and a faulty breaker in the fuse box. We complained a few times but no one came out to investigate. Also, the rental had an elevator. A serviceman came to perform scheduled maintenance but we were never given advance notice (he was noisy and we had grandchildren napping). Also, the door to beach was a hazard as we had strong winds all week. We really had to be careful (and strong) when opening.

Shipwrecked is an absolutely beautiful home in an absolutely beautiful location. The layout was perfect for our family, and the owners thought of every convenience right down to beach chairs and umbrellas. The elevator was handy for loading and unloading luggage. The pool was immaculate. The walkway to the beach was perfect for us a d provided a runway for our two small dogs! :). We loved every minute. The owners even left a souvenir (tea towel) for us to bring home. This is a great vacation spot! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The location was amazing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Shipwrecked was absolutely perfect. We hosted our daughter’s wedding there and it accommodated all our needs. It was so nice that most of the bedrooms had private baths. The main floor seated almost 40 people at meal times and another 16 on the deck. It was perfect for us, as the wedding party stayed with us. We had the reception under the house and it was beautiful! Another great feature was the elevator (which I wasn’t aware of until we got there)for the grandparents. Nothing negative to say! Loved it.

Good house and location and great owners mr Glen and Mrs Judy. Wonderful folks This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Excellent location and the private boardwalk is great. A few cosmetic issues - slider door is hard to move and the exterior handle is broken, outside fan is rusty and wobbly, a few of the pool chairs are coming apart, but overall the house is still in good shape.

Love the porch , lots of room. Soooo relaxing. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Love the property. The owners even checked on us and gave us their personal phone number incase we needed anything. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
It an incredible facility. We didn’t care for the pedestle sinks in most of the bedrooms-no place to lay your stuff. The mattresses were second rate, This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Shipwrecked was absolutely amazing. The entire house is so well laid oit for multiple families to enjoy and not feel on top of each other. I could definitely see it being a great wedding property. The boardwalk was definitely a hugely appreciated feature. Looking around at the other houses and seeing some people trek much further through sand and dunes to get to the beach...we had Super convenient access that was safely secured for our little ones. The gate locks were definitely an awesome feature. The elevator was a very handy element for getting luggage in and out of the house...groceries too. So many things we loved...the covered side of the deck to watch the kids swim...double EVERYTHING in the kitchen...private beach access... The rooms were very well insulated, we have stayed somewhere before with multiple families and the walls were so thin you were afraid to wake people up by moving around in your room, or staying up on the living room...but NOT HERE! We had many children with different bedtimes and everyone slept soundly without anyone keeping people up. There were So many beds..no cots needed. The entire house was beautiful, high end trimmings and details and BEAUTIFUL tables throughout. So much seating. I could go on! We will definitely be back to Shipwrecked. we are already planning for next year!! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
House was absolutely amazing. Very beautifully decorated, had all accommodations we needed. Just perfect. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Difficult to find. Needs better way of identifying property. Address number and Meyer sign not easily seen. Sheet are very harsh on skin. Otherwise the property was perfect This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
The house was perfect for family vacation of 13. The house had an ice maker which was perfect for filling the cooler with water and other beverages to take to the beach. It would have been nice to know that there were grills at the house because we ended up renting one and spending money unnecessarily. There were also hand towels supplied, in the description it said there were none - we ended up bringing some and taking up unnecessary room in our luggage. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
great space and furnished nicely. Location on the beach was amazing! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
We really enjoyed the property. Love the long board walk to the beach and the outside sitting area. The house was well supplied and clean. The elevator was especially helpful as we had several members in their 70`s. The long tables in the dining area were especially helpful with our large family. The bunk rooms are somewhat small but worked out for our young ones. A chair in each of the king rooms and the Queen room would be especially helpful. It`s a wonderful property, thanks for sharing.

We loved the house! The boardwalk to the beach is so helpful. The pool is small, but having it on the deck was a bonus, as it was clean and easy to supervise kids playing. We had a 5-year-old who was slightly injured by the ceiling fan when she was on an upper bunk in the mermaid room. Meyers was responsive to this incident, and also to a soiled linen issue we discovered on a bed we had not used. Overall our experience was very good. Loved that there is ample seating for meals, and for evening gatherings on the deck. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Loved! the board walk to the beach. The house was amazing, the laid out inside and outside. The deck/ pool kids/adults loved it! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
Could have used an ironing board and hand towels But over all great house. Room for privacy and room for all to socialize This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
We had to make three separate calls to maintenance. One for WiFi, one for doorknobs/bathroom fixtures, and one for a water concern. None of these ultimately were a huge issue, but inconvenient nonetheless. I had to spend almost an hour of vacation time with the super nice Meyer guy taking to a WiFi provider. And the issue was still not resolved. We then had to be around for the WiFi guy to actually be at the house to fix the problem with a WiFi box, which we had to drive out of our way return back in town. So really, no issues with the property itself, it was gorgeous, new, and perfect for what we needed it for, but more with the preparedness of the property. And, we had three separate maintenance men in the house which was a little concerning considering we had nowhere to lock up valuables.

The WiFi did not work When service person came we were told the property had already used the purchased limit of WiFi access for the month and so we couldn’t get WiFi access. This affected our ability to do work while there and ability of our kids to watch movies. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
