We spent a week at Jorrney's Endi. t was a family vacation. There were 11 of us six adults and five teenagers. The floor plan of the house worked perfectly. The owner, MELISSA was very helpful with tips to entertain teens on nearby things, besides crabbing the pool and the Gulf beach. We certainly hope to return.

LOVED

  • 5 of 5
The house was very comfortable. Just as pictured. We used the pool on days they had red flags out on the beach. Only thing I didn't care for was the shared dock. Everyone was friendly and respectful. But while sitting on the back porch you could hear them talking and they also walked right by our vehicles and fishing stuff we left under the house. We would rent it again. Great for families with children. Our children loved the xbox and movies.

LOVED OUR STAY

This place was perfect. We had a wedding in the area and everything was perfect. We also did sight seeing, deep sea fishing, and spent time on the beaches. The Journeys end was as it was advertised, wonderful.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for a better vacation home. Kitchen was very well equipped, comfortable beds, plenty of living space. Photos show exactly what you get. We had one minor problem when we first arrived, but a phone call to Melissa and it was fixed in no time.

FAMILY FUN IN THE SUN!

  • 5 of 5
Journey's End was the best vacation we have had in a long time! The house was just as described and photos were accurate. The house was clean and we found everything we needed. We had 10 people from infant to 65 and all had a wonderful time! We fished several times, went to the beach daily and the water/weather was perfect!! We will be back. It is the perfect location. Just far enough away from the big city of Gulf Shores, but close enough to enjoy the Gulf Shores ammenities! We enjoyed eating at Tack Jacks, LuLu's and Bahama Bob's and the kids loved the go-carts and putt-putt golf! I loved my afternoon naps on the screened in porch :) This was a wonderful trip and can't wait to come back in October again!! We had one issue with the electricity in the master bedroom, but the owner sent out a repairman and it was fixed in about 30 minutes. All in all I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!! Thanks for sharing your home with us!! The Johnson's and the Dicke Families

BEST ONE YET

  • 5 of 5
I am a little late writing my review, we have been going down to the beach with our kids for ten years now and I can honestly say this is the best one yet. The week we stayed it was very windy so it was not good for the kids on the beach. it didn't matter to them because they had their own little beach right there at the back of the house. We love to fish so the pier was great for us and the grandkids. The back porch is awsome, we spent more time out on the porch than we did inside. I can honestly say everyone was delighted and we will be back again next year. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home.
