family really enjoyed
I just want to thank you for letting us rent your place @ Romar Place. #406 is very nice and my family really enjoyed it. We especially enjoyed that most of the people staying were families like ours. Your condo is beautiful and well taken care of. Thank you again.

We had a great week. I have rented from you before and normal the rooms are kept up better. I was disappointed. The shower head in master bath was spraying the ceiling but the maintenance man came and fixed it. It must have been doing it awhile because the celiling is messed up. The beds do need new mattresses, the double ones are bad. The microwave door was broke and had been glued together. It needs to be replaced the glass is about to fall out. The maintenance man was to talk to you about that. There was not but one kitchen towel, more are needed. And it would be great to have enough bath towels so laundry did not have to be done each day. All of the frying pans are bad, they need to be thrown out . One of the chairs on the deck is broke and needs to be replaced. Over all we had a good week.

Owner response: You called me and reported the ceiling was wet and collapsing in the master bath, a huge exaggeration. I immediately called the association that there was major water damage from the units above. I sent my crew to try to limit damage. The problem was someone use the shower head and arm to get out of shower and had twisted the arm a quarter turn causing a leak. The beds were new in 2011, less then 1 year old. The people that came in the day you left said the micro door came apart in his hand the first time he opened it, said looked like someone tried to glue it. I called the people that left the day you came in and they said there was nothing wrong with the microwave, and the shower did not leak. I called the maintenance man and he said no one told him about the microwave. The microwave was replaced, and shower head repaired
Spacious condo with excellent views from the large wrap around balcony

Clean, very spacious condo with 3 BR and 3 BA. Complete kitchen with everything we needed. Large spacious wrap around balcony with wrought iron furniture. We had alittle trouble getting the WI-FI to work properly but after a phone call to internet customer service, we were able to access it using another Harbor Communications network and it worked just fine. The only negative thing I can say is- the mattresses in all 3 bedrooms could be replaced with newer, more comfortable ones. Otherwise, Great condo to rent direclty from the owner.

Owner response: I sure do appreciate you mentioned the condo was clean. I agree the mattresses could be higher quality. However 3 of the 4 box spring and mattress were new in November of 2011 purchased from mattress depot. When I replace beds I buy commercial grade simi firm for all but the master bedroom and I replace beds before they are red, yellow, brown, and fold up like a taco.
My sister and I met my other sister and husband, neice and husband here for the week. It was a wonderful time and the condo was perfect for us. Very nice and clean and we always love to stay at Romar Place. Wi-fi capability so I could keep up with my work emails. Nice quiet beach - not crowded. Great places to eat nearby the Oyster House, the roll-throwing restaurant near the Tangier Outlet Mall and King Neptune. We always go to the TCBY frozen yogurt place. We played on the beach, at the pool, played miniature golf, and went to an evening movie in the park at Foley. Something new we did this year was went to church on the beach on Sunday morning at 7:30 just down from condo at the State Park. Foley United Methodist Church has a beach service beginning Mother's Day and going until Labor Day. You just take your chairs and they have music and everything and you are looking at the waves coming in as your worship - Awesome experience. Thanks so much for a great time at your place. We will be back.

Owner response: Thanks for the great review. I know you loved it when you reserved for next year a year in advance. If you have any pictures I would love to put them on my facebook, Romar Place 406 page.
The condo is a very nice place to stay. We found it to be clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well equiped. The views from the balcony are awesome. We watched the dolphins amost every morning. The pool is great, especially if you have young children. The shallow end is perfect for our 3 year old granddaughter. Then there is the beach. WOW!!! The sand is so white and beautiful. We rented chairs and enjoyed all but one day when it rained. That day we went to Fairhope. Fairhope is a great place to go and shop and eat. Romar place is very convenient to shopping and eating places. Thank you for a very nice place to stay.

Paradise FoundGuest comment entered by owner
We believe in Romar place 406 stayed twice and have reserved a week in Sept 2012 and May 2013. We love it, fell like it's ours. From the beach decor above the kitchen cabinets backed by mirrors, to the very personal wall hangings. The rich leather furniture, the bed set up, the heavy, not plastic, deck chairs and table are all perfect for our family. Everything the owner described is absolutely true and more. We finally found a place that we will come back to year after year!

The pictures were taken a long time ago. Beds were in need of replacing in the bedroom with the 2 dbl beds. The shower curtain and stopper were very moldy. The main problem was that the king size bed had sheets with urine stains on them and when we washed them they came clean. My family had actually slept on them for 3 nights before we opened the drapes and saw that it was on the sheets. Called the owner and nothing was done about it. I would not stay in this condo. There is one on the 2nd floor that is really nice and clean so I will use it next time. This condo has a lot of issues like the door handles loose, piece of baseboard laying in floor, no stoppers for all of the tubs, dirty kitchen tools in the drawers, can opener in drawer rusty and electric one not working, light bulbs out and plastic chairs on balcony dirty and split. Generally not taken care of and obviously the owner has not been there to oversee. Do yourself a favor and find another place even if it cost a little more.

Owner response: The pictures were taken by me in the spring in 2010, the video was taken by DPI production company, at great expense, in January of 2010 . The furniture is the same as of this date. The renter may be confused because the bed covers are different in the pictures, I replace the bedding often, I live here 6 months out of the year. I find it strange that this renter didn't open the drapes in the master bedroom for 3 days. These windows are the best views of the beach and Gulf, in the condo. I use a commercial cleaning service that cleans linens at much higher temperature then home washers. I did receive a call from this renter about a spot on a sheet. I called the cleaning service and they went immediately to change the sheets, but could not get in as no one was present. I respect the privacy of renters and will not enter unless they are there, a later attempt was made and no one answered the door. It is possible there was a mold spot on the shower curtain but the cleaning service changes the liner twice a month. Just as an aside, My family visits me in Romar Place 406, in the off season, we have made many personal touches, and feel at home wile there. The renter says, "generally not taken care of". I love my condo, I have replaced the white particle board kitchen and bath cabinets with modern, expensive wood custom cabinetry, appliances are new stainless steel, floors are 20 inch tile, bedroom TVs are wall mounted flat screen and main room is 50 inch HD flat screen. She says there are no tub stoppers. There is a lever under the faucet in each of the three tubs the open and closes the drain. What I find most interesting is VRBO will allow lies, personal attacks, and prevarications to be posted on the site that I pay for to advertise my property. Once a negative is planted no mater how many good comments there are, the unsubstantiated, negative, complete distortions will remain.
We enjoyed our stay and found everything as advertised! Very Clean!

My wife and I drove 21 hours to get to Romar Place from Minnesota and I'd drive double that to stay there again simply for the view alone. Right on the Gulf! It doesn't get better than that. We were there in January 2011 so we didn't get to enjoy the pool but we walked on the beach on a beautiful 60 degree day. There were so many good points about staying at Romar but the best had to be that it was right on the beach. Not to mention the sunset views from the patio. STELLAR! It was one of the most relaxing places I've ever stayed at. We also liked the fact that everything was within a mile or two. Nice restaurants/bars (The Pink Pony. I reccomend the AYCE catfish) for a few cocktails, then back to the condo to just unwind. 5 stars to the owner. The condo was very well kept and it made it easy to relax. Felt like home.....only a little better ;) Thanks for having such a GREAT place and we look forward to staying there again...and again....and again.

A great way to spend time away. Great sugar sand beach, beautiful clear water nice grocery stores, and entertainment facilities. Owner response to a small situation was instant and thorough. I'll be back!

Owner response: Thank you for the positive review. I was very glad you called about the water issue. That little water drip could have been a disaster. The water line to the ice maker in the unit above was leaking, thankfully it was repaired before it burst and leaked all over 406 and every unit below. For those wondering how I handle complaints, the following statement is in your rental agreement. In case of emergency call me or e-mail me . If the unit is not clean or there are other issues, call me immediately and I will get the cleaners back, or get repair people notified. If you wait until you get home to e-mail me, complaints will fall on deaf ears.

I own a production company and have filmed numerous condos in the region, including this one. Compared to other condos I've filmed, this unit is as close to a 10 as one could expect. Most owners do not focus on details like flat screen TV's, updated kitchens and furniture just to mention a few.The owner has an eye for keeping up with the latest styles. Some of the condos I have filmed remind me of Motel from 1977. I would recommend this unit to anyone visiting the Alabama Gulf Coast! I certainly enjoyed my working vacation in this unit!

2/5/10 Mr Huseby, We rented from you at Romar place, Labor day week this last year and were SUPER pleased and want to be a repeat customer. 9/3/12 We stayed in your Romar condo 4 years ago and ever since you have been booked by the time I make reservations for our annual Labor Day week trip. So, I was wondering if I could go ahead and reserve this unit for Labor day week 2013?
