About the owner: We live in Kentucky and have always really enjoyed our vacations in Gulf Shores. We decided to buy our first condo in late 2008 and due to a SEVERE ice storm in January 2009, escaped their for a few days. We ended up purchasing our other condo at an auction while we were there. I told my husband it was fate that we were there at that time and it was meant to happen ! So, this is our first year renting and we have been thrilled we the results so far. All of our clients have been great to work with and everyone comments on how they have enjoyed their stay with several mentioning they will be back again for certain. This is exactly what we had intended when we decided to begin our rental business. We want to develop loyal customers because they know what we will provide to them and how we value their business.
I ask each client if they have been to the area and if they haven't ( or it's been a few years), I try to provide them with info of the area and activities. Even though the beaches are beautiful,there is just so much to see and do in the entire gulf coast area.
Our family has been involved in a construction related business for 29 years and customer service is truly our number one priority. Clients are spending their hard earned money to relax and get away from it all for just a few days. We want to exceed their expectations on what a vacation rental home should be.
