About Dave Howes

My wife, Brenda, and I own and operate a small fishing resort in Chetek, Wisconsin. We have been fortunate enough to visit Gulf Shores in the winter for the past 10 years. Eight years ago we stayed in a beach house on Beach Boulevard just 12 doors down from our new home. Every night we would walk the beach and talk about how nice it would be to someday have a place right here. We loved the feeling of a neighborhood on the beach with beautiful views and wide open spaces. No other place in Gulf Shores ever seemed so right to us. With a lot of effort, the help of an economic downturn and a partnership with my mother and sister's family, we have made the dream come true. We will use this house as our own in the off season, which will enable us to keep it in top condition. We are going to manage it ourselves because we want to offer a personal touch. We want to know about the things people like and the things they don't, so we can continually improve our home and make it right for you. This is our dream...

Very nice, spacious property. Gorgeous view.

  • 4 of 5

While there we saw dolphins several times from the deck. One morning they even came while we were eating breakfast. We spent most of our vacation at the house with family. It was very relaxing to have such easy access to the beach.

A fine time was had by all at Dave's beach house

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen was fine, living space was adequate for six adults, bedrooms were very nice and comfortable, including a bathroom for each. Deck was pleasant with the bonus of Blue Angels roaring by a couple times and a visit by a great blue heron to the deck railing. Owner Dave was very accessible, helpful when we had a problem with the tv.

3rd year in a row and we love it

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at Pipe Dream for the past 3 years and we love it! The home is beautiful and clean and just like new. And you can't get better than beachfront. We love Fort Morgan and plan on going again year after year. Dave is also a pleasure to work with and makes renting so easy.

Hated to Leave

  • 5 of 5

Second year we have rented Pipe Dream. The house is great with everything you need for your stay. The location is relaxing and there is nothing better than having your coffee on the deck in the morning listening to the waves. Nice location away from the hustle and bustle of the condos.
