My family and I visited Gulf Shores, Labor day weekend; and although we enjoyed our time in the area, the house we rented put a serious damper on the entire trip.
Upon arrival, the house seemed to be in order. As we began to settle in we noticed some alarming things about multiple areas of the home.
While trying to use the bathroom we noticed that most of the toilets were very shaky and concluded that they may not have been mounted properly. This caused major concern for the multiple elders and kids in our group. We later noticed a green liquid coming from the faucet as we turned on the water in the bathtub. Another major issue for us was the extremely slow draining tub, which caused major delays for us as we were a large group of women. To round out this less than spa-like bathroom was the leak in the bathroom vent, which dripped.
As we prepared for bed, we noticed there were no sheets for the sofa beds. We called to request some and received a set of sheets that reeked of smoke, which made for a very uncomfortable night of sleep. The amount of dust in the bedrooms created an allergy and sinus nightmare for the individuals using them.
While using the laundry facilities the next day, we were discovered the strongest scent of fresh mildew from the washing machine. The washing machine also had a handle was very hard to open as the lid was disconnected from the bottom half of it.
On to the unappealing kitchen and its filthy cabinetry, along with the mildew that made its way to the dishwasher as it reeked of the same scent as the washing machine.
The pool was thoroughly neglected and presented a large amount of algae along with a dirty beach ball of some sort. The pool's ladder was also detached, which caused a minor incident. We were ultimately unable to use the pool which was a major factor in renting the house.
After noticing these issues, we searched for other lodging accommodations in the area, but were unsuccessful due to the busy weekend.
The house has great potential, but the lack of cleanliness and perceived disregard of important areas made for an unpleasant experience. Simply put, the house was not well kept.
Very clean and spacious!
We had a great stay. Wish the kitchen was a little more stocked with cooking utensils.
We enjoyed our stay. It had enough sleeping for all our 16 guests. One idea we had was that the dining tables be moved to the back deck overlooking the pool.
My whole family had a great time,plenty of room and beds,the master bedrooms were great with nice bathrooms,there was plenty of room in the kitchens to make meals.the pool and deck was great with plenty of room.the walk to the beach was short and not crowded.the owner was great he checked on us after we arrived and asked if every thing was ok and to call him if we needed any thing this is a great place to have fun and to enjoy with a large family. Thanks Bill
Everything was great! Short walk to the beach. Great location, very nice property.
Stayed with 3 other families for baseball tournament. It was a short walk to the beach. Great location, very nice property. Property was just as described online. Lots of room for multiple families. Owner was great at answering any questions. Kitchen could use a few more utensils and cookware. Other than that, we had a great week!
Great family trip!
Our family loved our stay and the house was very clean. We would definitely stay here again.
We are a 5 minute walk to the beach public access point on 12th street and west beach boulevard.
