About Larry Cassida

My husband is retired and im a hairdresser in Indiana

Larry Cassida purchased this condo in 2010

Why Larry Cassida chose Alabama

We fell in love with this property because of our grandkids coming to the beach .they love the marine life here,the shelling ,the three pools and the adventure island across the street.

What makes this condo unique

We chose the ground floor with the grass outside so the kids could play without the fear of a balcony.

Nice place with a few things to be aware of

  • 3 of 5

The hosts were responsive but unfortunately, we need them quite often. The condo itself was nicely updated and the room was a short walk to the beach. The issues were the dishwasher did not work, the kitchen lights need to be replaced (this required an electrician that showed up the same day), very spotty wifi that shut off most nights around 11 pm. Nice TVs in the living room and both bedrooms, but the volume did not work about half the channels (weird problem as the volume worked on fine on the other channels.) The hosts sent me the phone # of the cable TV company to call for repairs. Don't we all hate calling the cable company even when we are at home? No way I am doing that on vacation!

And although this condo is the "Beach and Tennis Club", these tennis courts were under major renovation. I don't play tennis but my wife and teenage kids do, and they were looking forward to some time on the courts. But since the courts were closed during our visit, that was a major disappointment.

Overall, the beach was very nice and lots of good restaurants nearby, and we still enjoyed our stay in Orange Beach.

It was not what we expected based on the pictures.

  • 2 of 5

When we got there we were expecting an ocean view based on the pictures posted. If you're not familiar with the property building #1 is behind the towers and does not give a beach view. It's not far from the beach by any means but it certainly wasn't beach front as shown. The code to get in was too easy and didn't change from when we checked in. I emailed Larry to see if there was a key or a code change and got no response. (Still haven't) There was hardly any communication whatsoever. The blender and dishwasher didn't work. In fact, 2 men showed up randomly to replace to dishwasher while we were there. My mom refused to let them in because at that time we didn't know that it wasn't working and they seemed very sketchy. There was also no communication that this might be happening. The beds were very uncomfortable and there were ants everywhere, including in the bed in the master. We didn't realize this until we stripped the beds before leaving. We weren't given a checkout time so we decided that 10 o'clock was fine but we were walked in on by the housekeeper before then. We hurriedly go out things packed up and left. I never got an email about my refund from the owners so I emailed them to find out when that would happen. No response back from them but I finally did receive something saying that I would be receiving my refund. I did get it back. Overall, it was fine to stay there this time but I would not stay again. I've rented quite a bit through VRBO and have been very satisfied until now. If they fixed the few problems we had and were more upfront about the location of the condo people would at least know what to expect and be fine with it.

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! Good location to beach. Nice & clean for the most part. It's impossible to keep the sand off the floors. The condo has most everything you need, even beach toys & 2 chairs. Brand new grill as well. We did not use it because of the rain. You might bring paper towels & toilet paper if your going to be there for very long. Over all we would stay here again.

Priced very well for the quality of the property. We would definitely stay here again.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our long weekend. The condo was very well maintained, secure, and decorated very nice. They had plenty of extras we packed but would not have had to do. The Naval Air station was bout a 25 minute drive for a neat attraction to visit. Lambert's was about 1/2 hour away. The condo did not have beach view from the window but a short walk from the back door to the pools or beach. There is also a shower right outside the back porch. We enjoyed our weekend. The weather was not great but we enjoyed having an indoor pool which we were able to use a good bit. There were one or two things that did not work (like the dishwasher and a couple light bulbs) but I sent the owner an email letting them know. We would love to stay here again!

Cozy & Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Nicely furnished and decorated, pretty much had everything a family of four would need. Plenty of dishes, towels, and beach gear; bring paper towels, trash bags, and soap. There were a couple of minor issues, but nothing that hindered our stay there. I couldn't get the dishwasher to run, and the cord to the grill was missing. I also think the cleaning people could do a better job-- it wasn't filthy or nasty, just small details overlooked. We loved the proximity of the beach (although there's no view from the room), the convenience of the washing machine, and being able to walk to stores and entertainment. Overall a great stay!

Relaxing Weekend

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I spent the weekend here to celebrate a friend's wedding. The condo was very clean and nicely decorated, and they even provided games, books, and beach toys (we didn't use them, but I'm sure a family with children could!). The beach was just a short walk away, and the condo itself was in a great location, next to restaurants and attractions. We couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

However, after waiting several weeks, going on 2 months, I have not received my damage deposit back. I have called several times and left messages. I have even texted just in case they were busy and could respond later. I was told one time that it would be put back, but I have yet to see it.

This condo was great, and they were very nice people to rent from. I'm all about giving people the benefit of a doubt, so maybe they have been busy/forgot. However, I did not feel my review should exclude my problem seeing as I am now short a significant amount of money.
