Perfect family vacation home Our stay was great at the After Dune Delight. It was cozy, spacious, and had everything we needed for our family stay. We were thrilled to only be a few minutes away from Fort Morgan beach. Our host Dana was exceptional and very prompt to answer any questions I had. We will definitely be back! Response from Aqua Vacations and Sales Group; Monday, April 11, 2022 Thank you so much Kourtney for the great review! i so enjoyed speaking to you and hosting you and your family and look forward to hosting you again!

After Dune Delight Overall our stay was good. There were some things that need to be fixed. The dishwasher doesn't have a top rack, the dryer door is broken so you have to use a hanger to open it. The screen door needs to be repaired and is currently tied to the deck to keep it open. The golf cart was also not available to be rented which was frustrating. The house was fairly clean. We liked having the kids separated from the other bedrooms and we did enjoy having the house across from the pool.

Good vacation/ unit needs to improve on cleanliness Over all my family had a great vacation at the cottage but the unit needs to be cleaned better. Some issues include shower curtain full of mold, dishes stored in cupboards with dried on food, dirt and belongings from other travelers under the furniture. We overall had a great time at the unit but the cleaning crew needs to improve significantly. Response from Aqua Vacations and Sales Group; Monday, July 26, 2021 Thank you Rani for bringing this to my attention. This has myself very upset about those issues. I will personally make for sure this is taken care of. And I am very happy that you and your family had a wonderful vacation.

Exactly as advertised The house was exactly as shown in the photos! Beautifully decorated and convenient to Ft. Morgan. The only "issue" I had is that the king-size mattress needs to be replaced or reinforced. Without this, I would have given them 5-stars. Response from Aqua Vacations and Sales Group; Monday, September 13, 2021 Thank you Fran for the reviews and comments. I will check out the king mattress. I enjoyed hosting you and look forward to seeing you next year!

Two weeks at After Dune Delight What can I say except it was miss represented. The biggest thing for us...the reason we wanted this place verses a place on the ocean, was for the heated pool and hottub. Well the bugs...little snats or no-see-um made this totally impossible. The little girls tried to go a few times in the very cold pool (no, its not heated, but we were told it use to be) but even with two types of bug spray, they were bitten up, as we all were. The ocean was fine and we did enjoy that, thus saying were could have gotten a place there and not had to travel the mile by car. <br/>Our bed was terrible. A king bed had memory foam that was sooooo soft and uncomfortable and the fitted sheets came off the bed every time you got into it so we ended every night on the grossly stained mattress. We should have left after the first day. <br/>The kitchen had rusted pans many of which had to be washed before we could use them. The refrigerator froze our food and we had to go out and buy a light bulb as it was missing in the fridge. The ice maker leaked water onto everything on the left side of the refrigerator as well.<br/>The light above the stove in the microwave was also not working.<br/>Wi-Fi in the house was very poor and you could not hold a phone call or even watch TV without it being interrupted. Working remote was impossible for our daughter and her husband.<br/>The grill is not gas and there is no firepit like the photo shows. The grill was rusted to pieces. We made it work but it was beyond shot.<br/>The dishwasher was missing a rack. This was in a previous review so I thought it would have been repaired...nothing gets repaired or replaced at this house.<br/>Our heat went out on the second day. we called and they management came by the next afternoon and agreed it wasn't working and then contact the repair service who did not come out till the following day.<br/>So bottom line is, we will not be back!

Fun Beach Getaway We loved After Dune Delight! Perfect space for the 6 of us. It was so close to the beach and the public beach access was very easy to find and park at. Furnishings were great at the cottage. Kids loved the pool too! Response from Aqua Vacations and Sales Group; Friday, August 21, 2020 Thank you so much for the great comments and reviews.

Nice house but none of the amenities worked We got to the house and the WiFi didn&#x2019;t work. The password was incorrect and no one could figure it out. The owners were supposed to be in contact with us since they were coming in and we never heard from anyone. The golf cart was nice but was never told where the key was and by time we found it it was our last day and when we went to use it it was completely dead. There&#x2019;s no cell signal so the no WiFi was a huge issue. We were supposed to hear from someone and never did. It&#x2019;s a great location and beautiful house but the golf cart was a bust (plus had duct tape holding the top on), the WiFi didn&#x2019;t work and no one really seemed to care or help with it, and the tv only had like 5 channels.
