About Jack

I am happily married, and have two children. I love to play golf and go deep-sea fishing in my spare time. We were the first licensed owner-rental managers in Emerald Key, and have enjoyed helping other owners become managers of their properties. We have been renting via VRBO for years and feel we offer the best value on the market. We maintain the unit in perfect order - always paying attention to all of the little details. Inquiries are always answered promptly and accurately.

Jack purchased this condo in 2003

Why Jack chose Orange Beach

We chose to purchase this unit due to its perfect location on the beach, fantastic floor plan, the very low-density complex (18 units), awesome construction, and its close proximity to our home and our other rental unit.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is only a couple of minutes from our favorite restaurants and amusement parks. I could stare at the ocean and sand from the comfort of this unit all day long. It's nice to pack a few clothes for a weekend trip without having to load the whole house as everything we need is always there for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to let you know we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at your property. You have a wonderful condo, everything provided per the on-line brochure, and so nicely furnished. We had a most pleasant stay - the weather was ideal the entire tme. We will certainly let our friends know about our experience and can recommend your condo for vacation considerations. We look forward to a possible repeat next year.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in your condo the last of June of this year. It was beautiful. We loved being in the corner unit. The view was incredible. The condo was very clean and comfortable. The only bad thing about the whole trip is that the grills are in the hot sun and they need to be shaded by a gazebo or some other type of structure. Other then that, it was a perfect vacation, and I would return to this same unit again.

Thank You,

The Walkers

Owner's Response: Great idea for a gazebo, but the Fire Marshall will not allow it. Thanks for the comments.

great month in Orange Beach

  • 4 of 5

The overall stay was good. The only item we did not like was the tub in the master bath.

  • Submitted: Mar 12, 2018
  • Stayed: January 2018
  • Source: VRBO, from HomeAway
Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback. We acknowledge that some would rather have a walk-in shower with no tub and one day we may eliminate the garden tub. To be clear to potential customers, this is a tub/shower combination. The tub is a large garden tub that many like. It is unfortunate that we are given only four stars because of this one item, especially when the tub is described in two locations in the listing so the unit is exactly as described. In the overall description it is stated, "The master bath features a garden tub of cultured marble and his and hers sinks." In another location the caption of the master bath photo states, "The Master Bath features his and hers sinks and a large garden tub/shower."

We went down to play baseball in the Gulf Shores USSSA World Series. We had a great time while we were here. This is a great place to stay it was clean and a perfect view of the ocean. Will stay again if we decided to go again next year to play. BTW we won the World Series which made It even better

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We hope to have you as our guests again soon. No doubt you won the series because you stayed in our unit (LOL)! Be sure to book early for next year as the peak season books early.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our first trip to Orange Beach, tropical storm and all! There are lots of great restaurants, mini-golf courses, a trampoline park, a zoo and much more. We were able to see a lot of the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area since we could not be in the water very much. We will definitely be back to Orange Beach!
