About Tenley

Our family loves fishing and boating so it was only natural for us to purchase this home to be near the water.

Tenley purchased this house in 2008

Why Tenley chose Orange Beach

We love this location and the wonderful people in the neighborhood. It's very safe and kid-friendly.

We loved this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect! We had 3 families and it worked perfectly for us! We had so much room and all the amenities to this property were great!! Tenley was so sweet and accommodating. We couldn't of asked for a better place or person to deal with. The place is beautifully decorated!! It is so convenient to bring your boat and take off to ride, eat or to hang out at one of the islands. Thanks for a great stay!

Great spot for down time and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you or your children are into fishing, then this is the place to be. My son barely came inside as there are many places to fish all around the property. The kayak trail begins only 2 doors down and was a wonderful outing. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The place is beautifully furnished, comfortable and was the perfect spot for relaxing

with friends and family.

Everything We Wanted + More!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation home, we took our family of 7 plus a sitter with us on a one week vacation. It was absolutely perfect. First of all, the furniture and decor is amazing! Second, the home is spacious which gave all of us the ability to stretch out and not be crammed on top of each other which can happen in some vacation homes. This was just beautiful, everything was in great condition and clean. Our children loved it and the beautiful of this home and its top of the line appliances made us really feel like we were on a vacation, just perfect. If we come back to Orange Beach, we will certainly stay at this home!

Nice property in great location but in poor condition and unclean.

  • 2 of 5

You have a wonderful home in a wonderful location. The home is well-designed and tastefully decorated.

That having been said, we were truly appalled and disappointed in the poor cleanliness and care of the property. For many, many years as our children grew up, we took our summer vacations on the Gulf coast and are accustomed to paying similar rental fees through VRBO or management companies. I cannot recall ever having rented a home with as many issues which added up to have such a negative experience on our vacation. A summary of issues is as follows:

* Our confirmation indicated very clearly that our check-in time was 3:00 p.m. We planned accordingly and coordinated with our children traveling from north Alabama and our son pulling a boat to arrive at 3:00. However, we learned in route that the maid was going to be there until 5:00 and were asked to delay our arrival until 4:00 or 5:00. The maid indicated that she was unaware that guests were departing that morning and was not scheduled to clean the house and was running late; therefore, we were asked to be inconvenienced with no apology or adjustment in rate.

* The weeds around the house were overgrown to such a degree on the ground floor near the bay side of the house that we could not enjoy the nice sitting area under the house and the weeds were so tall at the entrance to the outdoor shower that one had to step over them to get in the shower. A gentleman who had apparently been engaged to trim the weeds showed up on the afternoon prior to our departure to survey the weeds and commented that he was very surprised how out of control they were. We considered pulling the weeds ourselves but realized that we were on vacation and opted out.

* There was a broken glass beer bottle and a deep fat fryer full of rain water, food and trash left on the pier. The maid indicated that she did not clean the pier, therefore, my family and I had to clean it all before someone cut their foot on the glass and the garbage started to smell.

* There were food and crumbs left in the oven which was absolutely filthy.

* The Green Egg was also filthy and in such poor condition and disrepair that it would not hold a temperature.

* The cushions on the deck were mildewed, dirty and also in poor condition.

* The quantity and quality of the silverware was limited and hodgepodge.

* Finally, the bed linens, mattress pads and furniture covers were simply filthy.

Owner's Response: In response, to this guest's review, we have never had an issue with any other guest that has ever stayed with us. To begin, I sent an email and text to the guest that our cleaning would not be completed until 4 pm as guests had left that morning at 10 am and it takes a full 6 hours to thoroughly clean the 4 bedroom/4 bath house. The gardener that was to do the yard work, had cancelled two weeks prior and that was the first he could come as there was a lot of rain for the previous two weeks. That area does get a lot of rain which in turn causes weeds. They get regularly pulled every two weeks. As to the rest of the comments about being filthy- we have NEVER have a guest complain of anything being filthy. The outside fryer certainly does get messy because it is a fryer, when grilling on the green egg after the charcoal is lit most people brush the grates off and oil them before using it so naturally a charcoal grill is also not ever "clean" unless it's the first time using it, and the mattresses are covered with mattress pads. I did not hear from this guest until they left including no response to the text or email that the cleaning person would be there until 4 pm cleaning, then after there stay was over, I then received a text and email with a laundry list of things they found unacceptable. If we were made aware of such things during their stay we could have fixed it and always talk and communicate with our guests if they have any issue or problem whatsoever during their stay.

The Tenley home is the perfect vacation home! Location is perfect. Right next to Tacky Jacks and Robinson Island and a very short boat ride to Pirates Cove and Flora Bama Yacht Club. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated with high end appliances. Very nice long pier with covered pavilion, great for fishing and boat slips. We had the best times on the main floor deck grilling and relaxing with family and friends!! The master bedroom was amazing!! I loved the massage chair and spacious shower! I can't say enough good things about this place! Highly recommended! Owners were very easy to work with and renting through VRBO was a breeze! The only thing bad about our stay was leaving! Thank you to the Tenleys for sharing your beautiful home with us and for the memories made that will be cherished forever!
