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.

owner/property owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why owner/property owner chose Alabama

Low density complex, not crowded, safe and secure area. Beautiful Gulf view.

What makes this condo unique

Beautiful condo with amazing owners.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing. Very updated. Convenient. Has everything to make your stay easier and relaxed. Very clean. Good view of ocean plus a short walk to beach. Close to many stores and attractions. Owners are easy to contact. I had left an someone expensive item in the closest. Contacted owner and they were willing to send it to me at no charge which is a huge plus for me. Many places I've stayed would say your out of luck if you leave it. Or cleaning people would say they didn't find it. They have honest cleaners that found it and held onto it for the owners. Very pleased with stay and hoping to come back again next year. But definitely a longer stay. I love the area. Too much to do in one week. Would highly recommend staying here. Only recommendation I have. And it's not for the condo or owners. Is I feel they should have some sort of employee in the pool area for pool hours. I had some younger guest from another condo come to the pool while me and my kids were swimming and were agitated to see children there. So they were making some rude comments toward us and were making some not so child friendly actions until we left. So staff could help with that. But again. That has no reflection toward the condo or owners themselves. They cant control the guests of other condos or unfortunately the younger generations. Can't wait to go back to this location.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to leave a review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay in our unit. Thank you for being so courteous and doing extra cleaning before your departure. It is not required but is appreciated. I will pass this review on to our cleaning staff. We are fortunate to have them. They are very honest and hard working. Sorry to hear about the incident at the pool. This will be addressed with our board and security. We pride ourselves on being a family friendly complex. Behavior like this should not be tolerated. Again, thank you for choosing to stay with us. We look forward to hearing from you again. Greg and Gail Allen

We loved Ocean Reef and room 404!

  • 5 of 5

Love how the condo complex is set up. We loved our room 404. Plenty of room. Beds were very comfy. Loved that our room had a washer and dryer, not all rooms have them. Will definitely be staying in room 404 again and highly recommend this room!

Thank you for sharing your wonderful room with us!

Nice beachfront condo

  • 4 of 5

We rented this condo for 8 of us this last week and found this unit almost perfect to meet our needs. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of seating for meals. We were really impressed with the owner. We reported a couple of problems and they were quickly addressed (burned out light over the stairs to the loft and broken shelf in the fridge). The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is that some things could be improved. There wasn't quite enough silverware and blinds in the bedrooms aren't in the best condition. It would be nice if there were blackout curtains instead especially with young children who needed to sleep past 6 and needed to nap. A few more towels would have been nice but at least there was a washer which many did not seem to have. We did not have issues with the Wi-Fi like one of the earlier guests mentioned. We never used any tv's so can't comment on that. Overall this was a good value for the money paid and we would stay again if we come back to the area.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. Our Housekeeping Service notified us the stair way light bulb was burnt out before your arrival Saturday evening and I did everything I could to get it changed before your arrival but it took me to Sunday morning to get it changed. No one was eager to set up a ladder up on the steps to change the light bulb. Thanks for letting us know the silverware has gotten low. There was plenty at the beginning of the season but it has been a very busy rental season. We have 4 towels in each bathroom, that is the standard for a unit with a occupancy of eight. You are correct most units in Ocean Reef don't have a washer and dryer but we chose to install one for the convenience of our guest. The vertical blinds offer a better view than curtains but still has privacy. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.

Wonderful beachside stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our beach vacation and we honestly have nothing negative to say. We found everything to be as described; comfy accommodations, equipped kitchen, and a close walk to the beach. We especially loved the keyless entry! The owners were easy to work with and quick to respond to my emails. We would definitely return to this condo.

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.
