About Rhonda Aumueller Graber

We live in Gulf Shores, and adore the Alabamian coast! We know the area intimately, and love to assist travelers in helping them create a beachfront vacation that truly impregnates their mind and heart forever!

We are passionate stewards of helping guests create the best beach experience possible by sharing our Orange Beach or Gulf Shores condos (vrbo - 494929; vrbo - 581054; vrbo - 678816; vrbo - 872824)!

We married here on the beautiful sands of the gulf, and the passion for living and being in this proximity never leaves our hearts. We are enthralled with love for this area, and become ever more close with its nature, beauty, and the communal of people.

Together, we are passionate for shoreline, sun, sand, daily walks and talks. We both always have craved visits and time spent at the gulf and fresh water lakes, including beachcombing for unique shells and sea glass. We welcome the opportunity to share our home with you and those whom you love. We hope you enjoy the experience of Orange Beach as much as we do.

Rhonda Aumueller Graber purchased this condo in 2013

Why Rhonda Aumueller Graber chose Alabama

The tranquility, serenity and privacy of the Tidewater, combined with unforgettable shoreline, horizon, sunrises and sunsets, creates a time-out from the demands of daily schedules, routine and expectations. There is a sense of gracefully 'falling off the world' once you enter this vicinity.

What makes this condo unique

Whatever your preference for personal enjoyment and recreational time, it's all here - and then some....

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

I loved the condo. The pools was nice but the hot tub was not good at all and the last day before we was to check out for some reason the room would not lock but overall we had a great time.

Owner's Response: Excellent to know you loved the condo and had a great time for your honeymoon celebration at the shore (even though it was decades later - sounds as if it was worth the wait)! And, yes, the water feature amenities at the Tidewater are amazing! As for the door, as we state in both our check-in note and document, please do not turn/change the interior door-lock, as it is preset to auto-lock for you; sorry you missed reading that detail twice (had you told us, we would have expressed that the lock does not stop working, unless it is tampered, you just simply needed to turn the interior thumb-lock back to where it was). Thrilled you and your husband had a great vacation!

Great Time at Tidewater

  • 5 of 5

We found the Tidewater a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Orange Beach. The condo was very clean with close, easy access to the beach. Rhonda's communication made our visit smooth as well. If we go back to Orange Beach next year we will definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: It especially is touching to hear how the condo provided your family a pivotal experience; it's one we hope all our guests can have, when they gather to spend time together on the shore! Hope you took home the reminiscences in your pockets, with the sugar-white sand clinging to your sandals – and, that the condo’s cleanliness, beach access, and location proximity keep your memory bank warm and fired, and bring you back, again, to the deep tranquil waters of the Alabama Gulf Coast (vrbo - 494929; vrbo – 581054; vrbo – 678816; vrbo - 872824)!

We loved this place!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented this wonderful condo for a simple one night getaway, we were not disappointed. From the decorations to the bedding,everything was great. No problems getting in or out,fellow renters and owners were very nice and kind. Everything you can possibly dream of it was here. The condos owners were extremely nice always right there if need be. Close proximity to grocery stores everything you need as well. And you cannot beat the view from the balcony, it is wonderful. I will definitely be staying here from now on.
