About Matt and Amy Pater

Hi friends! We are the Pater Family! We reside in Tennesse but make frequent trips down to the beach! we love this location so much that we just had to buy a house there! We hope you love it too :)

Matt and Amy Pater purchased this house in 2014

Why Matt and Amy Pater chose Gulf Shores

We are only steps from the beach here at Sunwatch Cottages which is perfect when you have kids and stuff to tote along! The pool is wonderful and the pier into the lagoon makes for wonderful crabbing and fishing.

What makes this house unique

Our house had a gorgeous makeover in 2016 to reflect our personality after purchasing it. This being a 5 bedroom, newly built home makes it great for holding large family vacations. We have ample bed space, with bunk beds in the kids room and queen size beds in most of the guest rooms. Full size refrigerator, microwave, and dish washer along with a washer/ dryer. Picnic table and grill under the house.

Worked well for our family of 13.

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean place. Close to the beach and Lagoon. Our family of 13 had enough room for sleeping but not enough room in the living room.

The property is nice and nicely decorated. In a good location for beach access and pool/bay access.

  • 3 of 5

The property is nice and decorated nicely. Some of our issues were unavoidable and certainly not the owners fault. We were to come in the afternoon before Hurricane Nate made landfall in the Mobile area. Predicted storm surge for the area was 6-9 feet. Consequently we asked about our options and the only one given was to change weeks. I work in the school system and have summers and spring break left to choose from and those were already booked. We decided to wait and go down on Monday after the hurricane passed. Tried to verify with the owners that there was electricity and they were going to send the cleaning staff to check but they did not have time on Sunday so owners checked the outage map and that was what we had to go by. Did have electricity but the second floor a/c was not cooling. Had the first day without air but they sent repair man next day. Also breaker out for upstairs bathroom, hall, and washer/dryer. That also was fixed by couple days. Sinks in two bathrooms would barely drain and this was not fixed. The bedroom situation works well for the large number of people but the living room is very small and only seats 5 people. Did not work well for our big family. They did not have anyone coming the week behind us until Sunday so they allowed us to stay Monday-Sunday morning. So we only lost 1 day that we paid for. I was hoping they would offer to reimburse for our shorted time since it was an act of nature and made landfall in the area. However that was not the case. I do appreciate Mr. Pater getting the a/c and the breaker fixed in a timely fashion. He was pleasant to work with.

Perfect Play Place!!

This house is the perfect getaway for a family trip or reunion! The house is located in a convenient location near the beach, pool and lagoon It has been kept -up well and is both clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked and we cooked many meals without needing anything. This is the house to rent for your stay.

Beautiful and spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying in this home. It had everything we needed to be home away from home. Very close to the beach. The pool and lagoon was very nice. Quiet place away from all the noise and attractions, but close enough to everything for fun, eating, and shopping. The owners were very nice through communications. I would definitely stay here again. I highly recommend this house.
