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 Orange Beach

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.

We went down for a quick getaway. The condo was perfect for a couple. The views and the beach in November are serene, and breathtaking.

The owners of the condo went out the way to communicate about the trip and checkin.

We really enjoyed our visit and plan to return...

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!
