5. couldn't turn on TV in the room to right after the entrance
"This unit is so nice. It was very clean except for some small spots on the couch. I loved being on the end/corner unit. The balcony was huge with a sitting area on each end. The beds were comfortable there was a bathroom attached to each bedroom. We didn’t have any trouble with parking or pool use. The access to the beach was easily walkable. Unfortunately the construction on the roof was still going on at the time (July 2022) so was kind of disappointed I didn’t get to check that part out. The management company was EXCELLENT to work with. Check in/check out, access codes, everything was so easy. "
"I cannot say better things about the service and help from this rental agency. Everything was smooth; no guess-work; and check-out was easy. The accommodations were also top-notch. The walk to the beach was really very short, and with the view from the 5th floor, we felt like we were on the beach. Definitely coming back again.
My only quibble: the wifi was worse than a cell connection. I know this property is way out there, so this isn't a critique of the management. But this was a working vacation for me, so having to wait two minutes for my email program to load every time I wrote a message was a real headache. "
"Tanner, thank you for the great review! I hate that the internet gave you problems. Unfortunately, because of the location, WiFi can be spotty and unpredictable. Hopefully, that was the only issue during your stay. We would love to have you stay with us again! "
"Very nice, elegant feel of the condo, supplied with all the essentials for a wonderful experience "
"Woo hoo! We love such great reviews! Thank you for the five star review and we would appreciate any recommendation to family or friends! Please come back and stay with us again!"
"*Condo was sparkling clean
"Woo hoo! Thank you for the awesome review! We are so glad you chose to stay with Sunset Properties! Give us a call when you are ready to come back!"
"Property was easy to find & the check-in process was very quick & easy. Condo was beautiful & immaculate. The master suite & bath was great.
My only issue was the internet. I texted the property manager and they sent someone out. Unfortunately the gentleman that came out was not very knowledgeable. He gave several excuses that we're no where close to being the issue. He left stating he would contact Mediacom. Never received an update. We were taking a "work action" so we ended having to use Hotspot.
Love the condo but internet should be removed from the discription."
"Kimberlie, I am so sorry that the internet issues were not resolved. That is certainly an inconvenience when you are needing to work. I do show a work order for Oct 5 that the internet would not stay connected. I was not aware of the issue, so I am not sure what the follow up was. I do hope that, other than the internet issues, you enjoyed your stay and that you will come back and stay with us again. The internet is the same throughout the entire condo complex, so I will check with the association manager to see if there has been a solution; however, I will say I assume it has because no one else has mentioned the internet in that condo. "
"Very nice, great service !
Evaluated for Hurricane Ida. "
"Harold, thank you for the review. We're glad we had a place for you to go and I am so glad you enjoyed it!"

"It was great! "
"Wohoo!! Good to hear!"
"Yay! Dawn, we're happy you had a great girl's weekend!"
"We really enjoyed our stay in Indies 501! The condo is was better than pictured and beautifully decorated. The huge balcony was a hit for relaxing views of the water. The beds slept great and we walked to Tacky Jack's for every meal. We will definitely be back!"
"That's awesome!! Thank you for the great review! I'm glad this condo worked out for your stay! We look forward to booking your next weekend getaway!"
"The pictures are deceiving. The condo was nicer than they appeared. We had a good view of the ocean and the complex was beautiful. We knew it would be a long drive for supplies and Sunset properties told us up front about the construction on the condos It was the perfect place to stay for our family. We loved it! "
"Woo hoo! Thank you for that awesome review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in Indies 501! I'm glad that you did"
"We had a great time. The condo was clean the beds were comfortable and the view was amazing. The staff at Sunset Properties is always so helpful and friendly. "
"Yay!! Thanks for the review, Becky! We are so glad to hear that! We think our staff is pretty awesome! We would love to have you stay with us again! Give us a call!"
"Very relaxing as always"
"We have stayed in the Dunes community many times. This condo was wonderful. There were a few minor maintenance issues but nothing that impaired our enjoyment. I would recommend that some information on available television channels and the operation of the television for cable and for streaming services be provided in the condo. Highly recommend the condo and will gladly return for another stay."
"Thank you, Anne, for the review of your stay in Indies 501! We will pass along that recommendation to the owner! Sometimes, it can get confusing trying to figure out the TV's. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to booking your next vacation! Be sure and call us to book direct and save that booking fee! Ask us about our loyalty program for our return guests!"
"Great unit. Easily accessible. Loved the view of the beach and the bay. Wesley the security guard was very helpful and accommodating. "
"Thank you, Camille, for taking the time to leave a review of your stay in Indies 501! I'm glad you enjoyed your time here in Fort Morgan! And, yes, Wesley is awesome!"
"Very pleased with our stay.
Roof is amazing for dinner.
Made use of smoker, pool, hot tub, and gym.
Security on property is top-notch (Wesley).
Wifi issue was resolved within the first hour of arrival.
Couple of notes for the master suite. Hope you are an early riser, as master faces directly east and sun hits the room between 5a & 6a. For those of us that are a little larger (6'3", 200) the single stall shower in the master bath is a tight squeeze. Balcony is the highlight of the unit.
Did notice that full-time tenants can be somewhat nosy."
"Thank you so much for taking time to leave a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us at Indies 501!"
"Very nice condo!! We really enjoyed staying in that condo again this year , and are looking forward to next year already!! "
"Yay!! Thank you, Lyle, for taking the time to let us know about your stay in Indies 501! So glad you are coming back to stay with us again! "
"We loved this condo and the building. Such great people in the area. The condo exceeded expectations and was beautifully decorated. Loved the layout and the amazing wrap around balcony. The view was just breathtaking. Beds were comfortable and plenty of extra pillows in the unit. The only suggestions I would have is to provide more towels and the water pressure was not great but many are going green with water conservation so understandable. The dryer took many cycles to dry anything so the heating element may need to be serviced. Otherwise it was perfect. We had all we needed for a great vacation. The office of sunset was very responsive and the tenants that live in this building were just so friendly. There is a viewing deck on the top floor that was truly magnificent and a great place to have dinner or just enjoy the view especially the sunsets. The beaches were lovely and not packed even during fa break like other areas with massive condo builds. I would absolutely stay here again. We loved visiting the actual fort at Fort Morgan and just being in such a serene area only 20 mins from the hustle of gulf shores. "
"Thank you so much for the awesome review of your stay in Indies 501!! I am so glad you were pleased with your condo and the surrounding area. We love the peace and tranquility here in Fort Morgan! Come on back down!"
"We really enjoyed out stay. The staff were very friendly and responded quickly. The condo was roomy, comfortable beautiful, and very clean - great views. "
"Yay, Lisa!! We're glad you enjoyed your stay. This condo really is great with amazing views, let us know when you're planning your next trip! We'd love to have you back!"
"Wonderful stay !! "
"Yay! So glad you came and relaxed on our beautiful beach! It is so peaceful and quiet in Fort Morgan. Hope you come back again!"
"We had a wonderful time at The Indies --- our condo had an incredible view of both the gulf and the bay. It was spacious, nicely furnished and met our needs beautifully. We enjoyed an Xplorie Dolphin Cruise -- was really fun and educational. "
"Thank you for taking time to write a review! We are so glad you took advantage of Xplorie, that cruise is a lot fun!"
"We loved the condo. The view was spectacular. The codes to get on the pool , gates, and room were too much I suggest just one code for all. We will be back"
"Kenya, we appreciate that you took time to leave us a review! We don't own the building so unfortunately we don't get to pick codes or we would get them the same too! It is of course a safety issue to have the door codes always be different for our guests, and if the pool and gate did't have codes anyone could come in and we wouldn't want to have such a large crown on our beaches like they have at other locations. We are SO glad you'll be back to stay with us!!"
"Very nice place and well kept. Furnished nicely but felt like a few more basic amenities could be provided, as in paper towels and more toilet tissue also trash can liners. Other than that we loved the place and wouldn't hesitate to rent again or recommend to others. Love the condo complex too, impressed with the amenities there, really like the new grills to BBQ on!!"
"Thank you for writing a review. We do include this info on our sight and in our app that we only provide the start up kit as far as trash bags and things are concerned. If we provided all of those items for all properties that we manage it would run the cost up, we want to keep things as affordable as possible for our guests! "
"We had a Wonderful time !!! Very nice condo and rental managers were so very friendly and accommodating!!"
"Lyle and Sandy, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay, we were certainly glad to have you. See you soon!"
"Absolutely wonderful experience. The condo was very clean. Great views from the wraparound balcony. The staff was exceptional and helpful. I plan on coming back and I would recommend it to my friends and family. "
"Whoop! Whoop! Thanks for the review! We are so happy you had an absolutely wonderful experience!!"
"We enjoyed everything about this condo !! Furnished with all we needed to make our stay comfortable. Thank you Sunset Properties for helping us with this last minute reservation when our VRBO rental failed us ! You can't go wrong with renting from Sunset Properties. Wonderful staff!"
"Whoop! Whoop!! Thank you for your review! Unfortunately, VRBO's can be at times undependable. Vacation Rental Company's in the state of Alabama are governed by the Realestate commission of Alabama, therefore we have high standards to which we must adhere! "
"This condo is a lovely unit to stay in and another stay here is in our near future.
The only downside was that the third bedroom (smallest one) seemed to have a full size bed, and I think that other couples will prefer A true Queen size bed or extra long full size bed. Again, this is just a suggestion. And a reminder for other clients staying there, is to not forget that the coffee maker does not have a auto shut off.
Now the swiping view of the beach and the other homes surrounding us below, has become a memory that I am still enjoying to this day. The weather was rainy and on the 5th floor, we saw spectacular show of the weather storms - day and night. Wow!"
"We were moved to this condo from another one that sprung a leak. It is beautiful! Very well maintained, very nicely decorated.
We love coming to the dunes properties for vacation, clean properties. Very quiet!!! Still close enough to all the restaurants. The properties ate managed very well and if a problem does come up, the management goes above and beyond to make it right. I never want to leave here!!"
"Beautiful condo !!! Enjoyed our stay !!"
"We had a wonderful vacation! This condo was perfect for a family of six. Lots of space, a full bath in every room, great kitchen, and awesome balcony. The ONLY thing that didn't seem to work right was the TV in the master bedroom, but to be fair, we didn't ask anyone to even come look at it, because we really weren't watching much TV. The walk to the beach was not too far at all. We drove our car the first day but once we set up our canopy, we left it on the beach, so we didn't need to drive again until our last day to pick everything up. Other than that we walked back and forth easily. The view from our unit was beautiful - we will definitely look at coming back here."
"Thank you for taking time to write a review of your stay in Indies 501, a beautiful condo with everything needed to make your stay perfect. Thank you for letting us know about the TV in the master, we will make sure it gets checked out. But frankly as you said who wants to watch TV when you have gorgeous sunrises, sunsets, white sandy beaches and peaceful Gulf waves to enjoy as well as the views from the awesome balcony. And the walk to the beach provides the perfect excercise to keep from gaining weight from all the fabulous seafood at the local restaurants. So glad you had everything needed to make for a perfect vacation and we look forward to booking your next stay with us soon! Sincerely, Sunset Properties Staff"
"The only thing was all the artificial plants I have alergeries and they made it difficult to breath but management came and removed them "
"Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are happy that we could help by moving the artificial plants. Please keep an eye out for any upcoming specials on our website and social media sites. We hope to see you on your next beach vacation! Sincerely, Sunset Properties Staff"
"Condo hade a great view of sunrise, Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay. Becky and rest of Sunset Realty management team went out of their way to make sure stay was memorable. "
"Think you for taking the time to review your stay and this property. We are so glad you had such a wonderful stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff"
"I would definitely recommend this property to others. The location was very good for us since we wanted to be at least somewhat secluded. If that's not what you want, you should probably look in Gulf Shores instead. We had our 19 and 17 year old children with us and that's where the best attribute of the property shows itself. 3 bedrooms, with each having it's own bath, made the stay very comfortable and convenient. The wrap around porch/deck was awesome as well for views of the beach and ocean."
"Wow!!! We are so glad you and your family had such a great trip. Indies 501 is an amazing property to stay in and we are thrilled to hear that even your teenagers had a great time. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Sincerely, THe Sunset Properties Staff"
"The rental was very nice. However, there was only ONE dishtowel in the kitchen. Thas]t is ridiculous. There should also be at least two towels for every guest. The guy that was replacing the TV's just busted in w/o knocking. Very nice man, but unprofessional in that aspect. Also, the light in the master bedroom is a bit tricky. The condo was very clean and quiet. I would rent it again. If you are renting for a family or group this would be perfect. Just bring some towels."
"Thank you for taking the time to review this property and your stay we are so glad to hear you had such a great trip. Yes unfortunately we are limited on the number of towels provided. You brought up a great point!!! Thank you for calling this to everyone's attention that there is only one towel and wash cloth per sleeping spot and one kitchen set in the kitchen. Many people over look that information in the confirmation information we send out. Also, every unit has a washer and dryer for doing laundry while you are here if you need to! We look forward to seeing you and your group in the future! Thank you again for this review. Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff "
"TV REMOTES SHOULD HAVE BATTERIES IN THEM!
HAIR DRYER NEEDED IN EACH BATHROOM
ROOM TEMP WAS SET AT 78 WHEN WE ENTERED; SUGGEST IT BE KEPT AT A REASONABLE TEMP - 73??"
"Hi Forlaw Family, We are so glad you had an amazing time on your recent trip to Fort Morgan and with your stay in Indies 501. We will certainly speak to our housekeeping and maintenance staffs about the temperature and lack of batteries. As hair dryers are not required in the condos at all I am so glad you had one in your condo! You chose well!!! We look forward to seeing you again in the future. Sincerely, The Sunset Properties Staff "
"We had a great time at the Indies. We have stay there many times before and plan to stay many more spring breaks and summers!"
"Had a wonderful time at recent visit to the Indies. The office staff were professional and very accomodating. Unit was clean, had nice decor, and had a great view. Was a comfort to know there was a security guard on site. We experienced no problems during our stay and look forward to coming back. Only suggestion is to add blowdryers to all bathrooms in unit and have a few extra linens available."

We would never use any other company to rent our house, because the people at Sunset Properties take a personal interest in our property. All of these little things help the bottom line. And, the service--it is unbelievable. .Mrs.Vaughan

I have vacation properties in Gulf Shores, and they are all with Sunset Properties. Although I live close by the job of renting, managing, promoting plus handling the maintenance and cleaning in order to maximize my rental income, takes a lot more time and effort than one person can oversee. They are a fantastic company.A
