Nice pool and porch!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice house and pool. Loved the porch! It was nice to sit and talk when the kids were in the pool. Some of the mattresses were getting worn and a few skillets need to be replaced with some larger skillets. Overall good location.

Lots of people in a small parking area and pool; very loud for units 1 and 2 if complex is full

  • 3 of 5

Having had a wonderful experience the first year, we were happy to come back to this property. Unfortunately, our second experience was not as good. Please be aware that 4 units use a normal sized pool and parking area. This year, every family had lots of children... One family brought 9... The pool was pretty much overrun every day. A wedding party next door meant there were 23 cars in the parking lot. Since units 1 and 2 closely overlook the pool... Calm and quiet was limited. The physical property is as advertised and has a central location.

Best Vacation Rental EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families gathered to celebrate our daughter's and fiancé's college graduations at Summer Salt East. The accommodations were fantastic. There was ample space, the gulf front view is top-notch, the kitchen was outfitted well for our needs and the pool provided a nice alternative to the Gulf.

Check-in and access to the property was simple and quick. I would not hesitate to recommend the property to anyone. The only problem with this perfect vacation spot is the fact that we had to pack up and leave at the end of the week.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous beach home; we look forward to return visits!

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This could not be a more ideal set up for a large group. We rented both Summer Salt East and West. The properties share a pool with a very large deck as well as a boardwalk right down to the ocean. The homes are spacious, well kept, modern, clean and very comfortable. We had 24 on both sides and everyone had plenty of space. The porch with the patio furniture was a great place for families and friends to hang out and relax. There are 2 refrigerators in each property which was a big bonus. The property owner was friendly, responsive and renting the properties could not have gone more smoothly. Every family that stayed said how thrilled they were with the accommodations and were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful the homes were inside and outside. Thank you for a wonderful, memorable week in Orange Beach!!

Located on the sugar white sands of Alabama's Gulf Coast the area offers many fun activities including fishing the gulf, bays & back waters, boating, walking & biking trails from Orange Beach all the way to historic Fort Morgan, birdwatching at the Bon Secour Wildilfe Refuge, watching the Blue Angels practice over the Gulf or at NAS Pensacola or just lazing the afternoon in the sun. Shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is always an option for a rainy afternoon or if you want something closer, visiting the fabulous shops at The Wharf in Orange Beach for some shopping, dining & entertainment all in one convenient location. The options for dining are endless, from seafood shacks to fine dining- we have it all! Nightlife is also varied but don't forget to stop by the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge on the Alabama-Florida state line anytime. They even offer church services every Sunday.
