About Mary Ann Whatley

I grew up in Illinois, and moved to the beautiful Gulf Coast about 14 years ago and never looked back! The relaxing atmosphere and laid back Island Life is something I never want to leave. I vacationed on the Gulf Coast all of my life and have so many wonderful memories that is seemed like the perfect place to raise my kids, and now we are creating all new memories.

Mary Ann Whatley purchased this house in 2014

Why Mary Ann Whatley chose Alabama

Orange Beach does not have a lot of beach side houses, so it was the perfect choice. Now guests can have all of the luxuries of staying in Orange Beach, AND stay in a spacious, beach house!

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few Beachfront houses in Orange Beach, Alabama.


Weddings welcome!

I watched this home being built online and knew it was the one

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a weekend during my graduation for myself and family +friends. I made sure I brought plenty of food and board games. The 2 refrigerators really made groceries a snap. I love to cook. Almost everything we needed was there but I made a list of things I will bring and probably leave the next visit. Top of the lift a Belgium waffle maker... I loved the two properties were next to each other and I'm newly engaged... 2 days to be exact and thought of this home for a beach wedding. I think there is a third property on the back although when I visited, it wasn't complete... I looked at the calendar and as you can see its filled so I'm not the only one that loved thus property. That kills the wedding idea. Lol... but if you are looking for a place that is absolutely awesome... with comfortable sleeping arrangements. ... wonderful property owners...... spectacular living conditions I would have to recommend either the east or west home as they are IDENTICAL. Well worth my savings to bring my family here... Please don't overlook this gem... it's worth every penny.........

The Perfect House in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 10 days with 6 adults and 7 kids from 13 to 14 months. There was a bedroom we didn't even use, and several bunks in the bunk room weren't used, either, so another family would have fit just fine. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need and we cooked most of our meals. The table is massive! Enough dishes even for the night we added 6 more adults. The patio is wonderful.. I went out before dawn most mornings and watched the sun rise. All the kids enjoyed the pool almost every day and especially when it was a red flag in the ocean due to rip currents. There are even floating mattresses and various beach toys left from previous tenants. For as long a stay as we had, you will have to buy paper towels, dish soap, etc. There's enough to get you going so you have time to go to the store. We went to Publix which is about 10 minutes down the highway.. great deli, produce and bakery as well as the standard groceries. We didn't eat out much but our favorite place was Big Fish. This house has my hearty recommendation and I sincerely hope we can come back.

Lots of room for families

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with 7 adults and 4 small children was great. There was plenty of room for the kids to play and for adults to escape for quite time if needed. This home has room for many more people if needed. The beds were comfortable. Home was nicely decorated and very clean. GREAT porch downstairs for family to use and upper one for relaxation. Kids loved the pool. There are a lot of steps at all locations to this home so someone with disabilities would have problems. Owner left two phone numbers for us if we needed anything and he was nearby. Owner has someone that will provide beach chair service if wanted at a fee paid to the beach service since this is a private home. We each dined at different locations and had different views on where we ate. Upscale place with mostly reservations "Fishers at Orange Beach Marina" was enjoyed by some. Downstairs at same location, outside dining with mostly sandwiches but has great bread pudding. Great place for outdoor dining on sandwiches and good view, very casual, was a place called "The Gulf". Across the street from house was a sandwich shop "Slap Happy Sandwiches" that had good sandwiches but a little pricey if feeding a lot of folks. "Cobalt" was enjoyed by some in our bunch and food was very good. You might want to make reservations or you may have long wait. For quick supplies there is a Walmart Market and Dollar Store just a short distance away but the Walmart Market is very busy so be prepared. Also a Publix is nearby.
