About Marty & Jeanie Naumann

Marty and Jeanie have owned in Gulf Shores for over 10 years. We love it there. We have two grown children and 7 grandchildren and we love to take them all to the beach every year. We now live in Cincinnati, Ohio. We take great pride in our beach villa and try to give our guest a great experience.

Marty & Jeanie Naumann purchased this house in 2005

Why Marty & Jeanie Naumann chose Gulf Shores

We bought our villa because of the location and amenities which are almost perfect. Also for the cost, Such a great rental value for our guest and our family.

What makes this house unique

Our guest will love the easy deeded access to the beach, sitting on the front balconies and enjoying the beach view and atmosphere. Having a full bath down stairs and a very large master bedroom. Also the convience to the center of Gulf Shores and shops and restaurants is wonderful...

we absolutely had a wonderful family vacation. Owners have a well maintained property and have excellent communication. Property directly across the street from beach access. Well thought out floor plan. The two comfortable den sofas also open to sofa sleepers. Have already requested return visit for Summer of 2016. Thanks!

Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect size for our family of 5! We had plenty of room, everyone had plenty of bathroom space :) Everything we needed was there. The place was updated and tastefully decorated, very comfortable. We all appreciated the short walk to the beach and the convenience store as well as the tennis court and pool.

Perfect for our active family!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with nice amenities. This was a perfect spot for us - close to the action, but not rowdy. The beach access is across the street. Site has a well kept pool and tennis court. Owner was super friendly and responded quickly during the rental process. Unit is well kept with current colors and furnishings. We would love to still be there!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the Mary review from above. My stay this year has been excellent. I've had family visit over the holidays and the property is excellent for house guests. Everyone has privacy when needed and there is plenty of room to be together also. Well situated to the beach and going into town. A ver good property to rent and live in for three months. Can't go wrong here.
