About Daniel & Rebecca Matschina

Thanks for your interest in renting our condo at Phoenix on the Bay in beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama.

We reside in Saint Paul, MN and frequently enjoy visits to Orange Beach, AL during the chilly winter months and unpredictable springs. We enjoy it for family trips on Spring Break as well as adult getaways to bask in the sun and escape for long weekends at the beach.

We are frequent travelers and we are still impressed with the amenities that our condo and our condo complex provides. We ALWAYS choose condo living when we travel and we think our condo ranks up there with the nicest places we have stayed.

Daniel & Rebecca Matschina purchased this condo in 2005

Why Daniel & Rebecca Matschina chose Alabama

After construction was finished on the Phoenix on the Bay complex, we had multiple offers to purchase our condo but after visiting it for the first time, we fell in love with the complex. The beautifully planned construction, the lazy river, the heated pools, the weather, the water slides...we couldn't even fathom selling it.

It is a GREAT vacation spot and a perfect match for our family to own and rent when we can't be there.

What makes this condo unique

We frequently get inquiries from first time visitors if our condo is on the beach - the answer is 'not quite', we are not directly on the beach. What first time visitors don't know is that most of the families and visitors that choose to rent a condo on the beach are scrambling to find their way to the Phoenix on the Bay complex so they can enjoy the lazy river, the water slides and the beautiful resort-like grounds we have.

The truth is, the beach is great (and is only a 5 minute commute from our condo), but guests rarely want to leave our property once they are there. Our repeat renters know the secret - the beach is overrated when you compare what you get at our property!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Great hosts and great place. The unit is right next to a set of stairs that are right next to your parking so it is super convenient. The unit was very clean as well. Also, it's awesome for families because unit is baby safe, condo amenities are great for young and older kids.

Met Our Goal!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 affected by the recent floods in Louisiana. Our goal was to have a quick and quiet get away as a family of 4. Despite it being chilly in the fall, we were still able to enjoy the indoor pool and easy access to local attractions. The beach was very close by and perfect weather to sit and enjoy the breeze. Parking for this unit is super close. Beds were comfy. Easy check in and out. The owners were clear on instructions and easy to work with. Highly recommended.

We loved every second of our stay this weekend! The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. The owners are so nice and helpful during the booking and duration of the stay! We will definitely be staying at this unit again!

Phoenix on the Bay is an overall nice property.

  • 3 of 5

The overall condition of the condo put a bit of a damper on my opinion of my visit. I did not find the unit freshly cleaned and ready for arrival as the material sent to me by the owner with my rental confirmation. The privacy blinds were in disrepair/broken, the wet bar ice maker was inoperable, both bathroom toilets had mold in them, the master bath shower was molded all around the door and the screen on the patio door was ripped and hanging loose. These conditions were a little off putting. The property needs some TLC and a better cleaning service. Needless to say I would have enjoyed my stay in a property for which I paid a premium price a lot more if I had not had to purchase cleaning supplies and clean the bathrooms. Of course I took pics of all the above at check in as to not interfere with return of my security deposit. On a lighter note, my grandchildren enjoyed the lazy river and indoor water facilities. I enjoyed them as well as the indoor workout facilities. The outdoor patio area was nice and I enjoyed walking to the docks and boating area. I will certainly consider Phoenix on the Bay again, but not this property.

Owner's Response: We very much regret any issues that this guest had - we did receive multiple emails from them upon check-in regarding the ice maker (that was in process of being removed and had an "Out of Order" sign on it) but in addition to our plea to them to not try to fix it we didn't hear anything else about the toilets or showers. In EVERY SINGLE case if there are issues, including this particular rental, we send our property management and cleaning company over immediately to rectify any apparent or perceived issues but we can only fix issues that we're made aware of obviously. I think any seasoned traveler can read our condo's dozens of reviews and see that 99.9% of our travelers have had nothing but positive experiences in our condo and we look forward to proving out that our condo is still one of the best in the POB property while still offering very competitive rates.

The place was very clean and had everything needed, and the beach is a very short drive away. We will be back!

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, we were very pleased to see that the pictures were exactly what we walked in to! This condo was perfect for our family and very nice. It had plenty of room for my husband and myself and our two almost two year olds. The bunk beds worked out great for them. The king bed in the master was very firm but super comfortable...probably the best sleep I've had in a long time and made me realize I need a firmer mattress at home! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and lunch in the condo, plus some fun extras! The week we were there was a "slow week" where spring breaks were finished and summer break hasn't arrived. We were literally the only people at the pool on several days. And speaking of the pools, the kiddie pool was perfect for our boys! The fact that it was different depths and had fountains coming out of the ground instead of from overhead kept them entertained for hours! We loved the lazy river, as well. We, also, enjoyed sitting out on the balcony for coffee, lunches, and just to enjoy the weather while the boys were napping. It was very convenient to restaurants (which we found a lot of little gems close by that we had no clue were there) and the beaches. The condo was in great shape and very clean when we arrived! We had no problems the extent of our stay and already called our families to tell them we need to book a family vacation here for next year! Thank you for letting us enjoy your vacation haven!

Amazing view, best place i have ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

I will never stay anywhere else again, we wanted to stay a extra day. So we called the owners and they had no problem with it, they sent us the link and in 5 minutes we where there for another day. They walked us through the whole process before we ever came down there. The place is beautiful, when you walk in the door and look around you can see that they have took a lot of time to give it that beach feel. Great color coordination scheme in all the rooms, like i said before. There is no other place i will stay at from this point forward, the balcony view is amazing, it is on the first floor and you can see the slide right there. Parking is also amazing for this unit, you are literally 50 feet from the door. One last thing, they installed a air conditioner thermostat called a Nest. I had never seen one, so while i stayed there i did some research on it. Guess what, i went out and purchased one because of them. Best place i have ever been, will be going back.
