Why Vicki Stephens or Minann Stephens Black chose Orange Beach

My husband and I have been traveling and vacationing on Alabama's Gulf coast for over 18 years. We love the white sand beach and family oriented activities.

Aww yeah, just the get away we needed!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property for the beach was extravagant. You could pay for a high-rise condo, but why would you be spending your time in a room when you could be on the beach? Minann is the best hostess expressing care and concern for our stay. She should be writing comedy scripts for stand up, instead she brings humor and care to your conversations.

The condo contains everything you would need to entertain yourself in case your stay results in overexposure to the sun, or rain ventures your way. Games galore, dvd’s for the kids, and even books of any genre are there to entertain you. I suspect that previous guest are credited with the wonderful amount of items left for the next adventurer. Floatation devices of sorts, beach umbrellas, and even additional chairs are tucked away in the laundry room. While we did not use them, larger parties might.

Minann is a constant source of local guidance for your choice of cuisine….the beach attendant really seems to like GT’s; it stands for good times. Sea and Suds was just a few miles down the road and affordable for lunch. It is always our first day stop. Other than that, this condo has everything you need for breakfast and lunch. I have stayed at other rentals, but this has by far, more utensils, kitchen tools, and cooking supplies.

This small group of condos are nestled between the behemoths of resorts on both sides, so it is relatively easy to miss the entrance and end up crossing the bridge headed to Florida. The beach attended lounge with umbrella’s are $60.00 for 2 days, and they have the tech to take plastic. The wi-fi in the condos, meh needs a little work. I suspect it is because you are supposed to be on vacation so don’t check your email. Need a movie, Red Box is at Walmart right up the road. Publix is near as well for your shopping needs….or alcohol. No bottles on the beach, but coolers of beer is acceptable. Walk out your door, down the parking lot, past the pool, and you are right there on the it. Enjoy your stay, we did. Take what you need, but leave what you can for future tenants. WE LOVED MINANN and HER ACCOMMODATIONS!

Thank you Minann,

The K's

Went to Gulf Shore with my kids and grandkids and didn't want to come home. Minann was wonderful. Everything was in the condo that you could ask for. It was clean and well taken care of. We were just steps from the beach. We made a lot of memories. The sun rise was breath taking. Thank you so much for having us there Minann, will recommend it to everyone.

Owner's Response: I am so glad y'all had a wonderful time. You had the best weather while you were here. I know how you feel about not going home! There is nothing better than some close family time at the beach, moonlight strolls for crabbing and waves to body surf on. I hope there were enough toys for every one to play with. The good thing about that is no one knows you so you can be a "kid" also. Hope you were able to get some wonderful pictures and create a life long memory album with the family. As always, we are here if you need us and if you don't. Thank you so much for coming to play in our beach condo. You are now a member of "our home away from home" family. Hugs to all. M

First timers...Relaxing Vacation!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great relaxing family vacation! Just what we needed. The weather was perfect. This was our first time renting a condo as well as our first time visiting Orange Beach, AL. The condo was perfect for us. We had 4 adults (my husband and I as well as my mom and his mom) and 3 children (13, 10, & 4 years of age). We loved that the condo was in a smaller complex and right on the beach! Every morning we enjoyed going out on front deck right away and soaking up the sun and then in the afternoon the rear deck was relaxing to sit at as well. Kids and grandmas had their own space and my husband and I had ours. It was perfect, and Minann was fantastic person to work with. She went out of her way to get us information on things to do in the area as well as being on call and always answering any questions I had in a very timely manner. She truly treated us as family. We really enjoyed the area and hope to return again. The condo was clean, very conveniently located, and was well equipped for our family. My kids loved the beach toys Minann had for our use in condo as well as the movie selection. I hate to even leave any negative feedback because all really was great but to be honest our only complaint, which we let Minann know about and she said she would improve it, was the king sized bed was very uncomfortable (soon as you sat or layed on bed, you could feel every spring). We suggested she get a memory foam topper or replace mattress. She was more than willing to accept our suggestion and make improvements. If we ever return to Orange Beach, AL, which I hope we do, or know of anyone going there, we would DEFINITELY return to this condo again and/or highly recommend it to others. We LOVED our stay! :)

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, not just at our condo, but the whole area of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. There is always something to do around here and it takes families such as yours to remind us locals to stop and actually enjoy what we sometimes take for granted. Glad there were enough toys and things for the kids. You are so right on that bed. I spent the night with my family there after you left and oh my goodness! That is now being taken care of. I did add the extra things on your suggestion list, garlic and onion powder, pizza cutter and scissors. Thanks for the heads up on those items. It always makes it better for the next renter with suggestions from the current renter. Once again, thank you for staying with us. You and your family are now extended members of our family! As always, if you need anything, just call!

First Time in AL

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Orange Beach even though the weather did not cooperate. The condo was on the Beach, so you can't beat the location. It is very easy to get around the area and convenient to all stores, restaurants, and main roads. Minann is a delight to work with and treated us like family. She was available to answer any questions and also went out of her way to bring us a hair dryer. My daughter loved the beach toys and skimmer. We plan to come back to Alabama, but maybe in April or May when weather is hopefully warmer.

Owner's Response: I am so glad your first trip to Alabama was a good one. Sorry about the weather, it just would not cooperate while you were here. At least there are a million things to do in our area so not a minute is wasted. April is a good month and the water is beginning to warm up. May is even better. Once again, I am so glad you had a nice time and thank you for coming and playing with us. As always, if there is anything you need, you know to call me!

JUST what we needed!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was home away from home! We had never rented a condo before and had only stayed in hotels. Minann who I booked the condo with was WONDERFUL! She made us feel like family! My mother had just passed away and it was a get away for us as we needed to take time a let our hearts heal a little bit. We had everything we needed. The only thing we needed to take were our clothes and sunscreen! My kids loved the movie and game selection and the fact that there were beach toys. I cannot express how much we loved it there and we cannot wait to go back!!! Thank you so much for our stay! *HUGS*

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so pleased that you and your family were able to kick back, reflect, relax and squish some sand and water between your toes while you took a deep breath to gather your thoughts on the past and future with your loss of your mother. It is always hard and never gets easier. I am glad everything was there for you so you did not have to think. The toys are always a hit with the kids and teens. As always, we/I am here for you if you need anything. May the healing process be easy on all. L,M.
