  • Awesome Family Vacation

    "Our family plus some friends just spent a memory making week at this beach house. We couldn't have been more pleased with the house. It had everything as pictured plus so much more. There were 13 of us (plus our dogs) ranging in age from 8 to 69 and we were all satisfied with it all. The location is away from the crowds yet it doesn't take too long to make a Walmart run. There is room to spread out in the house so we weren't all on top of each other when we needed some "alone time". The bedroom configurations lend themselves to a mixed up group and there were ample bathrooms. Since there were so many of us and we knew we'd be cooking all our meals in, we were concerned that there wouldn't be adequate cookware. Trust me when I say - this is a super well stocked kitchen - large pots, pitchers, utensils, dishes, flatware - there was nothing lacking. And the ice machine is a great touch. The beach itself is broad and, while not private, it wasn't horribly crowded. We took our canopy, set it up in the morning (to stake our claim) and we didn't ever feel crowded upon. Sure, lots of people but not piled on top of you. We did find out that dogs are not allowed on the beach (city ordinance) so we had to keep them behind the dunes (OK, maybe we snuck them out a couple of late evenings - don't tell). Stephanie was very responsive when we let her know of a couple of issues - nothing that hampered us but just wanted to let her know. I don't know if we'll ever be able to do this big family gathering again - but this week gave us a lifetime of memories and each of us would love to go back. Thanks Stephanie!"

  • Best beach house ever

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The Mar Tortuga was a dream house for us in more ways than one. The home is palatal in size, yet decorated very comfortably in an upscale way. We had everything we needed in the house from linens, to dishwasher liquid, and even a grill with charcoal. The location of this house is excellent, and the two big decks with ample seating allowed us to watch the waves roll in without moving from the house. But if we wanted to get in the water (and who doesn't?), all we had to do was walk out the sliding glass door and walk out onto the sand. We only had a to drive a few miles to get to the restaurants and shops, and we liked that we were located out far enough to not be in the midst of everything. My elderly mother-in-law loved her downstairs master, while my SIL had one of the front upstairs bedrooms with her own bathroom. My husband and I shared the massive upstairs master with its enormous bathroom, featuring a huge tiled walk in shower and humongous garden tub. The Wi-Fi was great and easy to access. We easily had 8 devices using it. The property management team was highly professional and it was actually a pleasure to deal with them. We had to leave town in a rush because our city was experiencing unprecedented flooding (August 14 floods in South Louisiana) and I called ahead and they allowed us to get into the property a few hours later. When we asked to extend our stay, they responded quickly in the affirmative and I suspect they may have even given us a lower rate because of the nature of our request. :-) If it's possible to be in love with a beach house and its property management, we are those people! I worked with Geoff the whole time and he was impeccably polite and responsive. We will be staying here again."

  • Great Location

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My family of 11 stayed at the Orion home in August. Of the 11, 5 were children. We took our kayaks and the kids were able to paddle around the Lagoon (with no worries because the water was shallow in most areas) and fish off the lower deck of the home. We could walk under the bridge and be at the beach in less than 5 minutes. The location of the home was in the more residential area, not a lot of commercial buildings around. Only drawback is that the way the bedrooms are set up, not a lot of privacy."

  • Beautiful

    "I've stayed in seven different homes on the beach in Gulf Shores, and two in Fort Morgan, and this is by far, my favorite. I spend a month here each year to get away from it all and to write. This house is clean and comfortable. The beds are great. It's beautifully decorated and furnished. The owner is wonderful to work with. There is an easy path to walk that leads to the water. The views are incredible, and the furniture on the porches is comfy. I highly recommend staying here. You will not regret it."
