Overall okay

  • 3 of 5

The house was accommodating for our family. Very spacious. However most of the deck doors didn’t work. A few of our family members had to leave early due to the mold on the registers that we notice,so we assumed there was mold in the venting of the home. They were highly allergic and had to see doctors for medication . We did enjoy the privacy of the beach and the lagoon view. I would recommend a golf cart to get around, especially if you have older family members. The walk to the beach for the older members was a little difficult. Paul was very helpful with our calls.

The House was perfect. We loved everything about it.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was great. Our family of 12 enjoyed the accommodations - there was plenty of room, we didn’t feel crowded. Little details enhanced our experience - the ice maker and second refrigerator, 3 balconies with great views and sounds of the gulf, spacious rooms (even the kids room), the high ceilings, and the elevator. The house is very well designed for a large vacation home. We also liked that the location was away from the Gulf Shores main strip and that the beach wasn’t crowded.

Just some tips for improvement -especially for people flying in from other areas - half of our family flew in from Alaska - having a few easentials in the kitchen would have been nice, like some spices, more glassware, and more options in cookware, and maybe a few beach chairs. Also, locks in the bathroom doors would be nice.

Overall, this is a fantastic house for a large party. We enjoyed our time together in your home. .

Good Overall Experience with a few shortcomings...

  • 4 of 5

This is our second time staying at Seahorse Hideaway. Overall, I would say it was a good experience, though there were a few issues that prevent me from giving five stars. The home is very large and accommodated our group very well. There were four adult couples plus three children and we had plenty of space and never felt on top of one another. The layout of the home is thoughtful and the kitchen was large and well equipped to prepare full meals. There are multiple decks to ensure that there is always a warm place to sit out of the wind and/or rain, and beach and pool access are both a very short walk away.

That being said, the property continues to show extreme levels of wear. Access to the upstairs deck--the only one that gets full sun--is limited to doors via one of the bedrooms. The other doors leading to this deck--both off the common upstairs area and the other bedroom--are broken and allegedly cannot be fixed. To have everyone in our party have to walk through a bedroom to get out on this deck was frankly unacceptable for a property marketed at this price point. Maintenance offered to accommodate as much as they could, but did state that a full replacement of the doors would be necessary in order to provide a full fix. In addition to that, there was limited seating on the upstairs deck (I purchased three adirondack chairs upon my arrival for that deck and left them--perhaps they will still be there for you), and the doors to both downstairs decks had faulty latches.

The property had a lot of potential. It is structurally sound and could be an extremely nice rental. For the time being, it remains an above average rental if the price is right, though renters should go in with eyes open to some maintenance issues.

Management is very nice and responsive, as is maintenance when called. There was very expedient follow up by all, including when the cleaning staff found an item that was left behind after we left (not by us, but still a nice touch that they reached out to inquire).

Three and a half stars is what I would leave if I could, but round up to four because of management. A decent option if the price is right.

Therapeutic Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was very accommodating and easy to book. The house presented as stated and we had more than enough space for the 11 adults and 5 children we had staying there. It was great to have both the beach and pool options for when the jellyfish were abundant in the ocean. Looking at some of the complaints from the other reviews, we found they were unfair or unjustified. We did not see snakes which is certainly beyond an owner's control and dirt on the floors is inevitable with tracking in sand from the beach. We did have the refrigerator start acting up while we were there but maintenance was very responsive and the refrigerator was replaced during our stay. My daughter left her smartphone at the house and the owner graciously mailed it back to us. Overall, it was a great stay and we would certainly return!!!

Very relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

House is really perfect for our big group. Bedrooms are big enough and we never felt cramped. Elevator did not work, seems like it hasn't been working for a while. Would have been nice to mention it prior to booking because house involves a lot of steps which was a little difficult for our older family members. One downside is the washer/dryer takes a long time to run which kinda is a hindrance, but we made it work. House has normal wear and tear but it was very lovely and suited our needs. Subdivision and house location is very secluded which gives us privacy and we got to enjoy the beach to ourselves. Will go back again soon!
