About RelaxontheBeach

My name is Kevin Wendelburg. I am a property owner, a real estate investor, and an Alabama real estate agent committed to 100% customer satisfaction. I will strive to under-promise and over-deliver with everything that I do. Hard work, personal responsibility, and an over achieving desire to provide the best product on the market are the cornerstones of my business, RelaxontheBeach.

I started RelaxontheBeach in 2004 because I knew that the vacation rental/property management business in Gulf Shores needed a complete overhaul. I purchased my first beach house in the early 2000's and immediately listed it with one of the larger property management firms in town. While I was thrilled that the house rented as well as it did, I was not happy with the draconian commission structure, poor cleaning standards, and slipshod maintenance.

I began to advertise and manage my property on my own and I doubled rental revenue in the first 24 months of owning the property.

Neighbors took note. I received phone calls. I received emails. How in the world, they wondered, was I able to generate so much traffic? Every weekend there was a car in my driveway. 'Simple' I said, 'treat every customer like family.'

The personal touch makes all the difference. Our potential guests are personally greeted by a knowledgeable representative. Our quality control director takes pride in the condition of all of our properties and ensures that our thorough cleanliness standards are met. We have a full maintenance department that does its best to address any maintenance concerns quickly.

We strive to provide guests with all the creature comforts of home. All RelaxontheBeach properties feature high speed Internet access and cable television. Many are pet friendly!

We want you to feel like you are getting a tremendous value for your vacation dollar. We want you to come back, and we want you to tell your friends. Give us a try. A great vacation awaits!

Why RelaxontheBeach chose Gulf Shores

I chose to buy a vacation rental house in Gulf Shores for a variety of reasons....the people are absolutely fantastic! Southern hospitality doesn't even begin to tell the entire story. From the waitresses with constant smiles on their faces, to the deep sea fishing boat captains with endless stories to tell, coastal Alabama can't be beat!

The beaches are the best in the world. Period. The finest white sand and the bluest turquoise waters await each and every guest. Need I say more?

World class golf is available in spades. Try your luck at Kiva Dunes, a perennial top 10 in the state of Alabama and ranked in Golf Digest's 'places to play' for an unforgettable links experience on the Gulf of Mexico. If you have a more traditional American layout in mind, the Peninsula Golf Club, with its 27 manicured holes and GPS loaded carts is terrific.

Anyone say 'fresh seafood?' You can't go wrong at any of our restaurants. Try 'Bahama Bobs' for the fresh catch of the day. The lunch specials are to die for. Its hard not to enjoy a meal when the majestic waters of the Gulf can be seen from your table!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The home exceeded our expectations. The Relax on the Beach staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Website is easy to navigate and full of helpful information! Will absolutely vacation again in a RelaxontheBeach home!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married on the beach while staying at The Sunflower July 4th-11th, 2009. This is one of the few beachhouses that will allow pets, too! The house has beautiful decor, had more than enough space for our extended families, a nicely equipped kitchen and was absolutely wonderful. We could watch our family playing in the surf from the house balconies and it was just a quick skip to the water. We had ages 3-83 staying with us and it was comfortable for young and old alike. We could also see the bay from other windows. The master suite is huge and the beds were comfortable and plentiful. Finally, enough bathrooms for everyone! We stay at the beach every summer and this was by far my favorite house. It was close to shopping, restaurants, outlet mall, water park, SuperWalmart, etc. This will be the first time I have wanted to rent the same house for another trip. It was exquisite! One I would buy if I win the lottery!

Reviewer Comments:

Some what nice, but with a few problems. Problem 1. Called management on first day we had no working ice maker and was told a repairman would be there the next morning and no one showed the next morning or the whole week so we went a week buying our ice. 2. Master bedroom upstairs the mattreess is completely worn out like sleeping on a slab of concrete.. carpet on the steps were filthy dirty and worn out. Other than these problems the house was okay.

Reviewer Comments:

The house was the perfect size for my family and had everything we needed, but the house had quite a bit of mold. The carpet in the master bedroom needs replaced. Also the showers had mold and one shower on the main floor did not work, only the tub worked.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location, just feet from the beach. Close to tons of restaurants, shopping and activities. House is very large and good for large groups. In need of some maintenance, upstairs AC takes several days to cool the upstairs, the master bedroom mattress needs to be replaced, and house needs to be sprayed for insects. I would definitely stay at the home again if I knew some upgrades/maintenance was done. You really can't beat the location!

Reviewer Comments:

For the size and cost of this rental home, I was disappointed with the number of items that needed repair. It is a lovely location and offers plenty of space for families, but I did not expect so many issues - ice maker broken, had to locate and hook up the DVD player, difficulty receiving many cable channels, internet was spotty, window curtain rod fell out of wall, shower curtain held up by tape, shower door would not close, broken floor tiles, and blinds were difficult to open/turn due to missing parts. I know beach houses get a lot of use, but for the cost, I expected this home to be better maintained.
