"First off, we love Fort Morgan area! It’s far enough away from the party scene for us and makes for an enjoyable family vacation with our young children. We’ve stayed in this particular neighborhood about 4 times, and the houses are all set up about the same. What sets this one apart is the amenities available for the cabin. There is a large storage box outside with all sorts of sand toys, kites, beach chairs, beach mats, and even has charcoal and lighter fluid in it left from past guests. There was a chest inside, too, filled with board games, puzzles, and a Bop-It (my kids LOVED the Bop-It). The room with two bunk beds (4 twin sized beds) was a perfect place for the kids to chill. There was a tv in that room, along with all of the other bedrooms and the living room, but we only watched the one in the living room. It was more than enough. The screened in front porch had a couple of comfy Adirondack chairs and a small bistro set. There is a charcoal grill and an outdoor shower with foot rinse. There were more than enough pots and pans, cutlery, knives, etc. There was a blender, cutting boards, large pitchers for mixing cool drinks for the kids. The unit also has a 10 cup coffee maker as well as a Keriug, which was nice. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks for making this a super comfortable beach trip!"

"This cottage is just as it looks. It was clean, has a well stocked kitchen and plenty of room for our family of 5. The location is across the highway from the beach. (This is not clear in the write-up, so wanted to be clear for future renters.) "

"My husband and I had a wonderful quiet and relaxing stay here. The condo was very clean and had a nice touch of fancy towel arrangements. We loved the beautiful hardwood floors throughout and the abundance of hangers and shelves in the master bedroom. The king size bed was very comfortable. The Keurig and kitchen plastic containers were handy. The location was great as the beach was close by. It was an easy walk or a quick drive with free public parking. There were two restaurants close also; one was.5 miles away and another was 2 miles. The pool was very large and inviting but we decided to try the hot tub instead. Both the temperature and jet were perfect. I would definitely recommend this place and plan on coming back in the future."

"The location was great for our family and the pool was very nice but the house could use some extra cleaning. Our only issue was that we were contacted the day before our stay that there would be taping going on during our stay. We were pleasantly surprised that the taping was done upon our arrival but all the windows were covered in plastic so we could not enjoy the sunlight or view from the home. On our last full day (Saturday) we were woken by workers outside the house at 6: 30 am. Ladders hitting the house and by 7am a worker was in our enclosed porch area starting to paint the house. I contacted you about this and you assured me that they were not to be there but after talking with the homeowners association rep. they were only finishing up and would be gone shortly. We left our house at 10 am and came back several times throughout the day and the painters were still working on our unit. They ended up painting the entire house and did not leave until after 6pm. We were disappointed with the way things were handled and put a negative end to our vacation. It is unlikely that we would contact your company in the future based on our experience. We do understand that some things are not in your control but being that you were the contact for the tenants there should have been more responsibility taken for the disturbance in our vacation that took place. Our complaint was essentially ignored when asked for some type of refund based on the events that took place. I'm sorry for such a negative response but I waited to fill out your review hoping I was contacted by management but since it's been over 15 days since our stay I would say that is unlikely."
