About owner/property owner

Owners are from northwest Alabama. Enjoy going to the beach at every opportunity. We have two wonderful daughters that we are so proud of. The oldest has recently finished a deployment in Afghanistan with the 101st Airborne Division. Our youngest is a sleep lab supervisor at a local hospital. We bought this unit because we think family vacations are very important. Some of our best memories include trips to the beach at Gulf Shores.

Issues with condo and deposit not returned :-/

  • 1 of 5

My friend and I experienced several issues during our stay. First the wifi password was incorrect that was sent to me. After getting the password, I discovered the router had been unplugged. While trying to plug in the router behind the entertainment armoire, I discovered the armoire door was broken. The pool was also being repaired while we there and a large portion of it was blocked off with signs and tape. The cable went out on the den and master bedroom the the day after we arrived and when we called the owner the only suggestion he offered was to try to find the security guard to look at it. Needless to say we never saw a security guard on the property while we were there and after trying to reset the cable on both tvs numerous times neither one came back on. Renters beware! I have had positive experiences renting from vrbo before but not this time.

Owner's Response: We received pictures from our housekeeping staff of the damage to our unit during this stay. The door of the entertainment system was broke off, food and drink was left in the upstairs bedroom, a new comforter had finger nail polish smeared on it the tv remote had to be reprogrammed. Nothing was wrong with Mediacom or tv boxes just set up was altered. We was notified of tv issue the night before departure and was told it did work fine previously. No we do not issue a refund when our property is not respected and is damaged. We had to pay additional cleaning charge, pay to have tv reprogrammed and comforter professional cleaned. We love our guest and understand normal wear and tear but in this instance it was not the case.

Great beachside condo

  • 4 of 5

This property was as described. It was roomy enough for my wife and I, and our 3 sons. The beds were very comfortable and even had a view of the gulf from the balcony. They were doing some work at the pool area but we were able to use the pool while we were there. We did have tropical storm Cindy to deal with but over all still had a good vacation with other family staying in the same complex.

Family birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

Condo was beautiful and steps from the beach. The beds were amazingly comfortable. The pool was empty(of water). Not really an issue for us, but had we been traveling with grandchildren, it would have been. Many more steps up to condo than we anticipated(4 flights). This was difficult, since we had an 81, a 73, and a 71 year old traveling with us. We were expecting 1 flight up, since it sounded like we were the unit at the top of the stairs. There were no extra trash bags there, which I have never experienced before. Enjoyed it anyway. :)

Nice Get-Away

  • 3 of 5

Our families always vacation together the end of April each year. We decided on Gulf Shores this year and found the Ocean Reef condos that accomadated all of us adult. The condo was nice. The kitchen was modern. The ocean views from each room was NICE! If I had suggestions or comments for the condo, I would say, the sliding glass doors in the bed rooms and the upstairs windows would of been nicer to enjoy if they had screens in them. Screens would of been nice to really enjoy the sounds of the ocean. All the condos were up stairs, so probably not condusive for the handicapped or ones who have a hard time with stairs. This particular condo was at the very top with approx. 32 stairs to get to it. Also, (not a big deal), but the bedroom with the queen bed could use a cover versus just a comforter and a sheet.

The owners were super nice and very easy to communicate with. Any questions we had, they made sure they got right back with us with the answers...That, we really appreciated.

All and all we had a great time and a nice stay at our condo!
