A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
Enchanted Dunes was just as promised for our family wedding/ get-away. Pictures do not do justice to the views, and the main porch and balconies were wonderful to relax on. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, our entire family was happy with the accommodations! This is a pet friendly home, but the furniture and flooring do not show "pet" , and the main floor /bathroom tiles were ideal for pets, children, and beach "goers". The kitchen was very well stocked with items, and the two dishwashers, ice-maker, and two refrigerators were very welcome to our large family. The elevator helped our family members with knee issues, and as long as you follow the directions, works perfectly! All of the furniture was comfortable and made for relaxing including the porch chairs and lounges, and seating in the kitchen and dining area is ample. Just off the deck is an area to "shower off" the sand before coming in, and George had sand toys, noodles, floats, etc.... in the storage room on the lower level. We loved having the shade of the lower level for grilling and cooking sea food, (huge grill) and the picnic table is a nice addition along with all the chairs for seating. We had room for our "redneck wedding reception" and brought in ten tables/ 60 chairs and still had room to enjoy the company. At night, the bedrooms were welcoming and extremely comfortable, and our king bed with balcony and beach view was wonderful. Truthfully, I can't tell you much about the large screen TVs and tech items because I spent much of my time on the beach- however, the gentlemen and teens were happy so I can safely assume all was good! I know having the internet helped keep our younger family members connected with college info. The boardwalk to the beach gave us quick beach access even it was a bit hot to the feet (take flip-flops) and it was just minutes to the water and sand. The Dunes community provides lounges, and the beach area was very nice.
We only had one issue with the house, and it was a minor one. The French doors to the balconies and main deck were a little difficult to unlock/lock and open. The owner (George) provided instructions for everything from the elevator to opening these doors, and we still had a little difficulty with them. Regardless, I would recommend Enchanted Dunes for any family get together or event, and I would love to return! George was extremely helpful, and quickly responded to all questions. He helped make our Wedding Event perfect!

Perfect Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house as the vacation spot for family and friends driving in from: Birmingham, Al; Atlanta, Ga; Orlanda, Fl; and Knoxville, TN. Since this was my first time renting thru VRBO, I was a bit skeptical. I submitted my request & the next day, received a call from Mr Wakefield. He was so thorough, I didn't have to ask any questions; and I felt at ease. It was also comforting to know that I had contact information and could call Mr Wakefield if I had any questions before and during the trip (which I didn't thanks to Mr Wakefield's attention to detail). I liked that the other travelers were able to make payments for their portion of the trip via the Internet. The express check in and key code entry allowed for everyone to arrive at their own pace as they would be able to enter with the code. Even though the house looks nice in the pictures, it looks even better in person. The TV's have good picture quality; and the wifi connection was GREAT!!! There is enough room and seating on the lower deck for 10-12 people (comfortably). We found ourself sitting out there at night listening to the waves before calling it a night. We were able to catch a glimpse of the Blue Angels doing their fly overs [which was great]. The beach was clean; and wasn't too crowded. I could go on and on about all the "greats" of this house, the location and Mr Wakefield but I'm limited by character count :). This was our first stay in Ft Morgan (we normally rent in Gulf Shores). We were so impressed with Ft Morgan and with Enchanted Dunes, we've already reserved to come back next year!!! Thanks for sharing your home with us Mr Wakefield!!!

Fantastic Home & Vacation

Fantastic Home & Vacation
  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to have found this home for our family of 20 & for our beach wedding. There was plenty of space including the great kitchen! Everyone tends to gather in the kitchen, and there was plenty of seating and space for everyone. We enjoyed watching the dolphins, the birds, and the Blue Angels practicing every day. With the 9 TV's in the house, the only one used was in the kids bedroom at night. It was great to see everyone "unplugged" and to enjoy the natural beauty of this place. It was a plus to have two dishwashers, two refrigerators and an ice-maker. Although we rarely used it, the elevator was handy to haul luggage upstairs. It was also nice for each bedroom to have a private bathroom, which we have not enjoyed in other home rentals. My only complaint is that it is time for new mattresses, epecially in the master bedroom. In addition, I would like to see the rental company provide a check list of damages,so I am sure that there is not a problem or a "guilty" party in my group if something is broke or damaged. A shelf in the refrigerator was broke, and there was several dings in the walls when we arrived - I sure didn't want to be blamed & I wasn't. Just a thought. A beautiful place - I truly miss sitting on the porch while I enjoyed watching our family making a memorable vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for visiting Enchanted Dunes! We love renting our vacation home but have learned that there will be some nicks and dings... These are addressed several times per year. Along the same lines, we understand that occasionally something will break and we appreciate when guests let us know so that we can repair them as soon as possible. We now have a handyman who regularly goes through the house but an email giving us a heads up about an issue is great since some may not be obvious. For instance we found some box springs that had become separated leaving a gap under the mattress. We have new expensive mattresses that work best with the box springs correctly positioned! Thank you very much for your stay and comments and I hope you will want to come back to Enchanted Dunes soon!

Best place to stay, look no further!!

  • 5 of 5
This place was fantastic. We try to do a family vacation with my in-laws and their children every year during spring break. We wanted something on the beach that would be large enough to accomodate the 16 of us without tripping over each other. This house was perfect. Right on the beach so you can drink your morning coffee, watch the dolphin play and listen to the ocean. We could sit on the decks and watch the children down at the waters edge. The total walk down the boardwalks to the beach took approximately 2 minutes. You can't get any closer to the beach unless you pitch a tent on the beach!! The house was great, extremely homey and comfortable. We didn't worry that we were going to break something, it was so very inviting and the men spent a lot of time on the couches watching March Madness while we women sat on the decks or went to the beach. The home is about 20 minutes from the main tourist attractions and this was lovely for us as it wasn't so busy and gave us a chance to get away. The bedrooms were all good sized and the beds were very comfortable. It was so nice having a bathroom for each bedroom and every room also had large closets. There are decks off of each bedroom which allowed you to see what the temperature was going to be prior to getting dressed and heading out. the kitchen/dining area was large enough to accomadate us all easily. George was extremely friendly and supplied us with a lot of information so we were well prepared. Tacky Jacks is just across the street from the subdivision and we enjoyed the bar and the even chartered a boat through their marina. I highly recommend Walter at the Marina, he gave us a great fishing experience and we even threw a bunch back!! Sherrie at the bar was also extremely friendly and informative. We ate at the diner above the bar and i hate to say we were not impressed, the waitress was rude and to be honest we will not return to the dining part of Tacky Jacks. We also went and did the Zip lining adventure at the Gulf State Park, another recommendation, I never knew I could have so much fun. The people at the Hummingbird zip lines were extremely friendly and helpful and immediately put me at ease. We also drove about 45 minutes and watched the Blue Angels practice, what an experience! George, thank you so much for opening your beautifu home to us, we hope to return next year but if we can't you have given us memories to last a lifetime. Thank you!
