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...

Lovely accommodation, unfortunate plumbing problem.

  • 4 of 5

Great home right on the beach. Tastefully decorated. Caution: public beach access near by. Loved our stay here. There were some plumbing issues but the owner was always quick to respond and get things repaired. Were it not for the plumbing problem, we'd give our stay 5 stars. We plan to come back.

Wonderful Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot to get away from it all. Beautiful beaches. We have been coming to the

Gulf Shores area for over 20 years and this was by far my favorite trip.The house was everything that was promised and more. It was beautifully appointed, spacious and super clean. We loved it and would have loved to stay longer. We will definitely be returning to stay again and would recommend it to anyone looking for the perfect home away from home. The owner of the property, Dave, was so nice and accommodating, and was so easy to work with. We really enjoyed the location of the home, quiet and relaxing with beautiful views of the ocean. I can't wait to go back again. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay in Pipe Dream very much. The home is very nice, well decorated, and comfortable. The beach is just a few steps from the deck, and it is not crowded at all. Dave is great to work with, and takes care of any issues that come up. This was our third stay at Pipe Dream, and look forward to being there again next year.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our whole family down for vacation and rented both sides of the house. It was perfect. We have 16 people and we were all very comfortable. The house is decorated professionally and every detail was excellent! Very clean too! Dave was great to work with as well! I highly recommend this home for your stay! K. Lucht

Long Needed Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First vacation in about 4 years and it was awesome!! The condo was exactly as described!! Amazing views and being able to walk straight to the ocean from the condo was awesome. Looked at many condos before picking this one and I'm so glad we did. Thank you for a wonderful, clean and very nicely decorated place to stay!! Hope to make it back to Fort Morgan soon!!
