About Michael Moranz

I have lived in St. Louis Missouri all of my life. My Mom is from Mobile. We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores since I was a child. We rented homes before condos were even built. We have stayed in many high rises but never liked the crowds. We fell in love with the Townhouses. It is fun renting the townhouses. I enjoy meeting new renters. I take pride in providing a great vacation for all my renters. Here is a photo of me walking on the beach with my family. Of course, I am on the phone with a customer. My wife (Since 1993) and I have 3 children and 1 grandchild.

My family's review

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting through Michael for about 4 years. He has never let us down. We stayed on the opposite side this year (first time in 10 years). It was wonderful! extremely nice furnishings, extra clean, absolutely no complaints at all. Michael is so easy to work with and he always keeps you updated on everything. We have rented from others in previous years but we have stuck with Michael the last 4 and have already arranged our trip for 2016. Michael will never let you down. He's got it down to a science which of course, takes the stress out of planning. Michael knows the area very well and can tell you just about anything you could want to know-places to eat, shop, entertainment, etc. We love our trips to the beach and Michael just makes it easy. I highly recommend Gulfside Townhomes and Michael!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! When I get a review like this it just makes my day. More importantly it inspires me. I want everyone who rents from me to feel the same way you do. They should! I truly understand how important vacations are and how hard folks work to make them happen. I realize that when someone rents from me that they are putting a lot of faith in my ability to make that hard earned vacation a pleasant one. It is my pleasure to get to share my knowledge about Gulf Shores with people from all over the country. I've been going to Gulf Shores my whole life as did my mother before me. In fact she is fortunate enough to have retired there. When I'm really lucky, as is the case here, what starts out as a simple email or phone call inquiring about a rental ends up being a friendship that lasts for years. I honestly value these relationships and will try my hardest to continue earning them. Thank you thank you thank you!! Michael........ Please enjoy the poem..... I AM THE BEACH by Joe Fazio-- As we walked along the beach, crashing waves thundered in our ears and a light, salted mist, dampened our lips. The sun began to set and the voice of the beach, traveled across the ocean waves. 'I am the beach, and here you shall find peace. I am the beach, here you shall find love. In this domain, my beach, the answers you search for, could very well be found here. For at this beach, there is much, that has been revealed. The sparkled, white grains of sand, that blanket this beach, has been a bed of comfort, to many. Pause, as you come upon this beach, and listen to the symphony of waves and the chorus of birds, singing their song, as they glide in the wind. Feel the power of this beach, as it seems to renew your inner being. You need not question the beach and its mystical powers. For as millions before you have found, the beach... and its magical transference to one...have existed, since the beginning of time. Be not troubled, for the beach is close at hand. You need only to deliver your strife, to the tranquility of the beach and it shall be exercised from you. When you go from this beach...leave with the peace that you have found here.'
