About Anne-Marie Spencer

After renting several condos in the gulf area, my husband and I got tired of chipped paint, old towels and pillows and shoddy service. We bought our own place, and love the opportunity to share it with other travelers looking for affordable quality! We handle all details online so its super easy and convenient to rent!

Anne-Marie Spencer purchased this condo in 2004

Why Anne-Marie Spencer chose Gulf Shores

We utilize keyless entry technology, so there is never an office to have to find when you arrive, and no keys to pick up, return, or worry about losing! Your family wont have to go through the hassle of coordinating schedules to share a key, or the nightmare of waiting for a locksmith in case of lock out!

What makes this condo unique

Keyless entry, beach decor, convenient location, no high rises to block the view or crowd the beach. Huge closet off kitchen to store extra groceries, beach gear or additional luggage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Welcome to Seahorse 321. We hope you will come stay with us! We rented at the gulf for years before buying a place of our own, and have tried to make the unit everything a guest would want. We offer fully outfitted kitchen, dishwasher, washer/dryer, luxury linens, and a 30 second walk to the beach. Come give us a try!

Great value for the money. The condo has everything you need and is close to the beach.

Make sure you go to Bahama Bob's for dinner. Great steaks/seafood and even better atmosphere.

This place was exactly like the pics! Had a great time, the owner was well accommodating. The place was sparkling clean and we were really impressed! Carpets were nice and clean, ac worked great! The beach was a short walk across the street! I would recommend getting a 12 inch skillet for those of us that love to cook even on vacation! I would upgrade the living room tv and the pool wasn't kept up as much as I'm used to from previous places I've rented. All in all this unit helped make my vacation great! Oh and for those that have kids Waterville was great! Bahama bobs was a great place too

In responsse to Worse Stay Ever

  • 4 of 5
My name is Amelia and I clean both of Anne-Marie's condos. I have worked with her for several years and I have never found her to be rude or unprofessional. We both attempted to accomodate this guest. I was called with a complaint of fleas, went to the condo, offered to treat for them with a bomb or powder for the carpet. They opted for the carpet treatment. I was there over an hour and found no evidence of fleas.
While I was there and they stayed while I treated, they
made no mention of the dirty state of the condo so I was surprised by her comment. I take pride in what my cleaning service provides and am always willing to correct any issue that may arise. I found it interesting that she waitied so long after arrrival to report any problems. I hope future guests will not let her post
prevent them from considering this cute condo. . . low key spot, nice pool, great view of the beach!

Owner's Response: This is absolutely correct, I even spent several hours relocating this guest so we could take care of any issues, and just to ensure there were not any, we followed Amelia's assessment with professional pest inspection, which revealed there were absolutely NO fleas in the condo. (We are happy to provide this report to anyone interested.) Who knows what motivates some people to spread untruths, we simply cannot figure out what motivated this guest to continue this lie even after it was proven to be false, but we have rented our condos for 9 years and pride ourselves on the success we have built on taking care of our guests, who trust us to provide an enjoyable family vacation spot!

Nice Stay- From Decatur AL

  • 5 of 5
We were scheduled for 5 nights and Ann Marie let us book it an extra night at the last minute. The place was very clean and loads of cooking utensils. There were grills in between the units. Liked the keyless lock feature. No problems at all. Nicely decorated. Very quick walk to the beach. There were no fleas in this unit when we stayed. We can attest to that. A/c worked great. Very close to downtown. We went to the Pirates Putt Putt and it was great.

Owner's Response: Thanks Mike! We appreciate the honest review. After dealing with the previous renter who decided to tell lies about our condo because they couldn't get a discount after check in, its nice to have honest people help by sharing the truth about our condo with future renters!

WORST stay EVER!! Ruined my ENTIRE vacation!!!

  • 1 of 5
The listing was NOT accurate. Yes, it's a close walk to the beach but the unit is run down, has stained, nasty carpets, the couches were extremely uncomfortable, stained and old as dirt, and the shower didn't even work when we got there! Had to wait an entire day for someone to come fix it. The TVs were very small and hard to see. Two days after getting there, we discovered it was infested with FLEAS!! YUCK! Myself and 2 small children were finding fleas on us in every room and flea bites on our legs. After confronting Anne-Marie about this, she denied they were fleas and blamed us for it! It took her 2 days to get back with us regarding the fleas! She was extremely un-helpful and frankly rude about the situation. Neither one of us adults that were staying there have pets at home and were willing to get statements from landlords at home stating that. We spent 3 days doing loads and loads of laundry to wash all our clothes, blankets and pillows so we wouldn't take fleas home with us!! We had to put our suitcases up on the kitchen counters because we were afraid fleas would get in them!! It was awful! We drove a very long distance to enjoy a beach vacation and relax but it was ruined because of her unit and unwillingness to fix the problem! I would NEVER recommend this property, or owner for that matter, to anyone! Anne-Marie was VERY rude and unprofessional to us before and during our stay when we had any questions or concerns! She has yet to apologize for what happened nor has she offered any sort of compensation to us! IT was the WORST stay I've ever had on vacation and I'm not sure I will ever return to Gulf Shores because of it.

Owner's Response: Very sad, inflammatory review. Here are the facts: She checked in on a Saturday, but it was 4 days later, Tuesday night, before she e mailed about a potential flea problem. Although there were no fleas reported by the cleaning service who cleaned before her arrival, we took her complaint very seriously and as soon as we could find a unit that was still open, would take a 2 day guest, and used a system that did not require a key mail (in high summer, this us took 6 hours of calls and emails, but again, we were very concerned) we paid out of pocket to move this guest to another condo, and then sent in two separate parties to evaluate the situation, including a professional pest inspection service-both found NO evidence of fleas, and gave the condo a clean bill of health. Although the new unit was comparable to ours, 2 bed, 1 ba, across street from beach, her response was that we didn't get her a beach view unit!

We have rented our condos for nine years and have never in that time had a complaint. Our bedding and linens are replaced annually, the carpets were new in 2011 and they are deep cleaned on a regular basis. We have a 24 hour handyman and cleaning service on call to respond to unexpected emergencies, and spent considerable time, effort, and money to please this guest. The last communication I had from this person stated that they were going to do "everything in their power to ruin our reputation." The only thing we can say as a professional is that apparently some people have issues that cannot be helped. Its just too bad they try to take their unhappiness out by defaming and slandering people. I guess if you are in business as long as we have been you will eventually encounter a "bad apple." Nothing but sadness for her. We hope our many positive reviews, current photos, and honest response will speak for themselves, including the one from the guest who stayed just before this person, who obviously had a very different opinion.

LOVED this place!

  • 5 of 5
Super accommodating owner, she even sent someone over to help us with a tire change when we called to ask if she knew a towing service. The place was clean and sparkly, and offers a view of the beach, even though its across the street. We'll be back next year!
