'ROLF'S RETREAT' CUTE BEACHFRONT 4 BD COTTAGE

Gulf Shores House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

PLEASE KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR PAYMENT BY WIRE TRANSFER.

Rolf's Retreat has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths and is right on the beach in the quiet West Beach area of Gulf Shores Alabama. It is a wonderful family-friendly beachfront cottage with a large living room complete with a huge sectional and new big flat screen TV.

With the dining table and breakfast bar, you'll find everyone can sit together for meals.

There are two king bedrooms including the master which opens to the gulffront porch and has its own bath. The third bedroom has a queen bed. The fourth has a twin over full bunk. There is also a living room chair that folds out into a single bed. Each bedroom has a television, and the house has wifi.

Rolf's Retreat has big porches on both sides of the house. The beachside porch has a nice covered area with a dining table and chairs so you can watch the family playing on the beach while still enjoying the shade. It then steps down to an open area with more seating and lounge chairs.

Just across the street is Rolf's Crabby Daddy, a 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps up to 6. If you have friends or family who want to come along but still have their own space, you can rent both and take $100 off the week at Crabby Daddy.

Either way, you'll have Little Lagoon access through Crabby Daddy's lagoon-front lot. Crabby Daddy guests do have deeded beach access at Rolf's Retreat.

We very much enjoyed being right on the beach. The seating in the living room was comfortable and accommodated everyone. The outside shower is in a great location and the porch was nice and big.

Rolf's Retreat was exactly what I needed. A small and quaint house right on the beach. The location is secluded and peaceful. We had everything we needed. The dolphin and sea turtle added the perfect touch.

Loved the house, just a couple of nit-picks to mention

Property's general condition - The only thing I wanted to mention was the furnace air filter. We noticed the furnace ran a lot even when the outside temperature was in the 50's. I looked and the air filter was completely blocked. It really cut down on the air flow to the furnace. For a $3 air filter this could be easily fixed. It looked like it hadn't been maintained in many months!

Property Management. The only comment I had here was when we received a knock on the door and 2 guys surprised us with a request to replace the kitchen window. It would have been nice to be warned/told-ahead-of-time that they were coming. I had to call you to see if this was a scam, or something that was suppose to happen.

Otherwise, we really liked the place and are renting it again next February. Thanks!

Owner's Response: The week before these guests arrived we had a record freeze with broken pipes at a number of our houses so we missed our routine filter change at the end of January. Given how very windy it is here in winter, filters get very dirty, very quickly. Very surprised the guests did not mention it. Unfortunately the window repair guys forgot to call us to let us know they were going to do the repair. It was supposed to be done before our guests arrived but the freeze shut down roads for 3 days and threw off their schedule for several weeks. We do our best to keep you apprised of scheduled maintenance and hope you'll let us know about issues so we can fix them during your stay.

Reviewer Comments:
It's a really great spot, away from it all but not too far to reach the conveniences. The back deck was awesome and the open living space was perfect. A/C worked great and the tv was gorgeous (used when the kids needed a break from the sun). Lots of wildlife in the ocean including stingrays, dolphin and tons of fish. The men enjoyed fishing in the bay out back and across the street. Lots of memories made here.

We enjoyed the property. The kitchen was well equipped with all we needed. Smart TV and internet was a hit with the teenagers. Nice spacious deck but we did pick up a few splinters on bare feet. Beach access was great.
Gulf Shores itself....., unfortunately the road into town and back to Mobile gets very slow and crowded during the day.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately it seems like our guests dissatisfaction with July 4th traffic congestion translated into a lower rating for their vacation, more than the feedback about the house.

Everything was wonderful. The floor plan of the house was perfect for the 7 of us. The waterpark was a big hit. Check in and out on Sunday is great because you miss all the traffic. Jellyfish were really bad so most days you could not get in the water. We plan in visiting Rolf's again soon.
