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...

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!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough nice things about this place. Our stay was top notch and we even extended our vacation a day. Access to the beach is effortless. Overall, a great place to stay...so good in fact that we can't wait to return. Special thanks to our neighbors for the week (Sean, Tina, Jason & Stephanie) from Arkansas. They made the trip even better.

Great Getaway for Three Couples

  • 5 of 5

This property is everything the photos promise! My husband and I and our two adult daughters with husbands spent several nights at this house and thoroughly enjoyed it! The furnishings are very nice and it had everything we needed, including beach toys and a grill! The next door neighbor even offered us the use of their tiki hut on the beach, which came in handy when the sun got hot! The folks renting the other side of this duplex were friendly and gave us restaurant recommendations. The drive into Gulf Shores, about 15-20 minutes, was farther than expected (our fault for not looking at a map) but it was nice being on the quiet end of things. There was a plumbing issue when we arrived on a Saturday afternoon, but a plumber came out first thing Sunday and it was resolved, thanks to Dave's attention. In fact, he texted me before we even arrived saying the cleaning crew had discovered the problem and he would have it taken care of. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!
