Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Spectacular location, on the 10th fairway at Oxmoor Valley, just 175 yards from the clubhouse! Our home was newly constructed in September 2011. Watch my video by clicking the video camera icon above the photos. It shows the quality and amenities of my home in 3 minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: If the dates you desire are not available, please look at my 2 homes in Prattville, AL on the RTJ Trail. VRBO listing #445081 & #644704.

We designed our home for groups to be pampered, so there are many special amenities, including: 4 Master suites, each with an attached bath and two queen-sized beds (8 beds total). The large, walk-in showers are finished in Italian travertine and the vanities have marble countertops. The open floor plan offers a great room with 50 inch plasma TV, dining/poker table with seating for 8 and a separate billiard room with championship Brunswick table. Every bedroom has an I-pod docking station so you can enjoy your favorite tunes. Each bedroom also has a 42 inch plasma TV.

The fully equipped kitchen is spacious enough for many cooks, or you can hire one of our personal chefs to prepare meals for you. The outdoor deck, overlooking the 10th hole, is perfect for relaxing, enjoying a glass of wine or grilling steaks. No expense was spared and no detail overlooked.

Our home is 3,200 square feet of luxury. We offer the best experience at the best price. Call us so we can answer your questions and help you make a well informed decision. I return phone calls promptly. Check our calendar for availability as it is accurate. Also, please read some of the nice reviews our guests have written. Thanks for your interest!

The address of the home is 497 Sunbelt Parkway, Birmingham, AL, 35211. Because it is a newer home, some GPS devices will not recognize the address. If that happens, simply use 100 Sunbelt Parkway (the address of the Oxmoor Valley Clubhouse). My home is only 175 yards away from the clubhouse.

About Rick Oster

My name is Rick Oster. I'm a dad with 3 kids and I don't get to play enough golf! However, the one thing I make sure I do every year, is take a golf trip with my friends. In 2006, I came up with the idea of building houses specifically for golfers to rent. I wanted a place where we could be totally comfortable, hang out, goof off and have fun. I literally sat down and listed everything I'd want in a 'man cave' type of vacation home...and then I built it! My first home is near the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon. It was so successful, that I began searching for another great location. After two years, I finally found an incredible acre of land, overlooking the 10th fairway at Oxmoor Valley.

Rick Oster purchased this house in 2011

Why Rick Oster chose Hoover

It's really difficult to buy 'golf front' land on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Much of the land is owned by US Steel or the Retirement Systems of Alabama. So, I was absolutely thrilled to find this piece of property. The home sits up in the treetops, as the land slopes away down to the golf course. The view is phenomenal. There is nothing but trees between me and the clubhouse. It is an ideal spot to relax after a long day on the links!

What makes this house unique

You can park your car at my house and never get back in it. There's no need to leave! We will stock the house with food and drinks and even have a chef come cook dinner! Need a massage? No problem, we will have a masseuse knock on the door! We tried to think of everything you might need to have the time of your life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a perfect place for the four couples to celebrate a 73rd birthday, Fathers Day and a 50th anniversary! The guys enjoyed the RTJ golf and the beautiful courses….though after the Ridge Course, some wondered whether they were getting too old for the hills! The ladies found plenty to do … a visit to the Peanut Depot, a visit to the Arlington Antebellum Home and way too short a time at the Summet for shopping! Could take DAYS! All in all, a wonderful, quiet place to stay, perfectly arranged for privacy at the end of the day. Thanks so much!

Amazing and Memorable Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Oster House is a "must stay" if you are planning a golf trip on RTJ. It's the only way to do it! Great space...shoot some pool, play some poker or just lounge indoors or outdoors. Very spacious for a large group and the queen beds for up to 8 people is a game changer! Rick was an awesome host and provided all the info you could want when staying somewhere you aren't familiar with. Will definitely be back!

Perfect Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to the Oster House. The house is perfect set up for 8 guys (or girls). Bedrooms and bathrooms are perfect size for 2 people. Living area and kitchen are ideal for hanging out, watching TV, eating, playing cards and cooking. Pool table is a bonus and we played every night. Kitchen is well stocked and we cooked in 2 nights. Gas grill on the deck came in handy. Covered porch was great for late night hanging out. House even has 2 laundry rooms and we used both of them. Location is very convenient to Oxmoor Valley and Ross Bridge. All of the courses were great. Rick was very accommodating and helpful. We will always stay here when we come to the RTJ trail.

Absolutely PERFECT place to stay on a golf trip!

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of eight guys that take an annual golf trip somewhere along the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. We had been eyeing this house for a few years, and were finally able to make it work with our timeframe. This place is incredible! The house is about a two minute walk from the Oxmoor Valley clubhouse, and it overlooks the 10th hole of the Ridge course. It's a perfect setup for eight guys to set up shop. We arrived on Thursday night, and never got back in our vehicles until we left on Sunday. We are actually planning next year's trip to Capitol Hill in Prattville, simply because Rick has two houses there as well!

4 night stay at the Oster House..

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the Palmer House. Loved the VERY close proximity to the Oxmoor and Ross Bridge golf courses and the 'openness' of the kitchen and entertainment space. Had 4 couples staying and one more couple in for dinner each night and would only suggest that the kitchen have full place settings for at least 12 (including coffee mugs) and more (microwaveable) serving dishes. We liked to cook in! Thanks so much for an amazing place to stay in Alabama!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kinds words, and your wish is my command; I am buying more place settings so we can accommodate 12 for dinner. Please come back soon and enjoy the new coffee mugs :)

Wedding party

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of renting this house for the wedding party of my daughter. The wedding took place at The Barn at Shady Lane which is literally right down the street. The house was both convienent and fun with the pool table, poker set up and loads of comfortable seating and beds. Would highly recommend it for anyone with a wedding planned in area.

Perfect for four couples

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as pictured, four lovely master suites and great meeting places both in the living room and on the deck for getting together after golf. The pool table was lots of fun. There are three golf courses within walking distance and a fourth excellent course, Ross Bridge, five minutes away. We hired a chef recommended by Rick for two of our nights but also easy to cook in. Rick, the owner is most responsive!
