Week of Fun and Sun

We just got back from a week at this fabulous house on the beach. This house is exactly as pictured, the beds are super (everyone had a bed, not a sofa sleeper or a couch), the view is unbelievable, the kitchen had everything we needed, (plenty of dishes and silverware) everything worked, the weather was wonderful and the beach was superb! We got to experience 7 moonlight nights with the last an almost full moon. The house was spotless when we arrived, the beaches were not crowded, the bedrooms are large and spacious.

One of the AC units went out after a short but nasty electrical thunderstorm. I called the maintenance number and he had a repair man out that had it fixed within 3 hours. There were no other issues. I only mention this to let you know that they were very responsive.

Some member of our 15 person group participated in the following local activities: the waterpark, the racing cars, parasailing, shopping at the Foley outlet mall, and of course, swimming and beaching. We all had a wonderful time and would have loved to stay another week. We also enjoyed the dolphin shows in the early morning hours.

We cooked and ate in every meal. It was a pleasure working in this kitchen. Plenty of gadgets, utensils, appliances and pots, pans, bake ware and mixing bowls.

I would definitely recommend this house to my friends and to you if you are reading this and thinking maybe. Go for it. It is amazing!

I recommended this property for families with small children with the exception of children under 2. There are several wide and open staircases. While they add to the beauty of this home, very small children require constant supervision. We had a 1 year old toddler and he had to be watched as he headed for the stairs every time he was on his own.

Our Gulf Shores Stay

The photos of this house were almost too good to be true, but they were correct. We took our children and our two grandchildren for a relaxing stay at Water's Edge. The house was well maintained. The house was very well furnished and the kitchen was well equipped. There was also a generous amount of linens. We enjoyed all the amenities on offer. It was fabulous to have a house right on the beach. One of the best features was the key pad which enabled all of us to enter the house without a key. We really enjoyed this feature as well as the elevator. Made the unpacking and packing much easier. Any questions we had were answered in a friendly, timely manner. We want to go back!!!!!!! We can recommend this house without any qualms..

Our expectations were exceeded in this lovely vacation home. It was very clean and had every kitchen appliance and convenience you could ask for and more. The accodomodations were wonderful and the view was breath-taking. It was so nice to be just steps away from the beach. I was so impressed that I'm planning on taking my extendeded family down for a family getaway.

Great Getaway

Our group had a wonderful stay at Water's Edge. The home is very spacious and comfortable. Most importantly it was very clean. We have professional cleaners in our group who were impressed. Unlike most rentals, everything in the home worked and was as pictured. The weather was sometimes uncooperative which provided a good excuse to appreciate the beach view from inside.
