  • Susan and Stan

    "We were very happy with this vacation home. We have a large family, and the sunroom really was used as bedroom number 6. Rooms are beautifully furnished and most of all extremely clean, including everything in the kitchen cabinets. Our family likes to cook, and the well stocked kitchen met all of our needs. The natural salt water pool at the house was used day and night for swimming and beach volleyball. This was by far the nicest house we’ve ever rented. The owners of this home live close by, and they are most friendly and ready to take care of any need. Thanks, Debbie and Fred! We greatly enjoyed our stay! Oh, it’s also very close to excellent fresh seafood, right off the boats, and the best barbeque when you don’t want to cook! We recommend this vacation property to everyone, but especially a big family with lots of children and teenagers."

  • Very enjoyable stay

    "We enjoyed our recent stay in Gulf Shores. This rental was perfect for our family including the dogs! My teenage son and his friend were able to walk to the beach, the Hangout, and other attractions without me having to worry. The area is safe. The condo and the yard were perfect for the dogs. The side we stayed in, Unit A, showed a bit of wear n tear but was perfect, especially with the dogs. I walked to the beach every day- only used the car once- to go to the outlet mall! Perfect for families with teens. I've been going to Gulf Shores / Fort Morgan area for the past 15+ years & have stayed in many VRBO pet friendly properties- I felt most comfortable here. The beds were very comfy and we had more than enough room to spread out. The owner, Ed, was very helpful and accommodating as was Jeremy and his wife, the folks who oversee the condo for Ed. Excellent, positive experience. Will definitely stay again. Just remember- this is a beach rental- not a luxury unit. Very comfortable- excellent for pet owners- very very very pet friendly- really felt as though they were welcomed. The owner is by far the best person I have ever rented from. If you're looking for the Ritz- stay elsewhere- looking for laid back, comfortable- stay here!"
