About RelaxontheBeach

My name is Kevin Wendelburg. I am a property owner, a real estate investor, and an Alabama real estate agent committed to 100% customer satisfaction. I will strive to under-promise and over-deliver with everything that I do. Hard work, personal responsibility, and an over achieving desire to provide the best product on the market are the cornerstones of my business, RelaxontheBeach.

I started RelaxontheBeach in 2004 because I knew that the vacation rental/property management business in Gulf Shores needed a complete overhaul. I purchased my first beach house in the early 2000's and immediately listed it with one of the larger property management firms in town. While I was thrilled that the house rented as well as it did, I was not happy with the draconian commission structure, poor cleaning standards, and slipshod maintenance.

I began to advertise and manage my property on my own and I doubled rental revenue in the first 24 months of owning the property.

Neighbors took note. I received phone calls. I received emails. How in the world, they wondered, was I able to generate so much traffic? Every weekend there was a car in my driveway. 'Simple' I said, 'treat every customer like family.'

The personal touch makes all the difference. Our potential guests are personally greeted by a knowledgeable representative. Our quality control director takes pride in the condition of all of our properties and ensures that our thorough cleanliness standards are met. We have a full maintenance department that does its best to address any maintenance concerns quickly.

We strive to provide guests with all the creature comforts of home. All RelaxontheBeach properties feature high speed Internet access and cable television. Many are pet friendly!

We want you to feel like you are getting a tremendous value for your vacation dollar. We want you to come back, and we want you to tell your friends. Give us a try. A great vacation awaits!

Why RelaxontheBeach chose Fort Morgan

I chose to buy a vacation rental house in Gulf Shores for a variety of reasons....the people are absolutely fantastic! Southern hospitality doesn't even begin to tell the entire story. From the waitresses with constant smiles on their faces, to the deep sea fishing boat captains with endless stories to tell, coastal Alabama can't be beat!

The beaches are the best in the world. Period. The finest white sand and the bluest turquoise waters await each and every guest. Need I say more?

World class golf is available in spades. Try your luck at Kiva Dunes, a perennial top 10 in the state of Alabama and ranked in Golf Digest's 'places to play' for an unforgettable links experience on the Gulf of Mexico. If you have a more traditional American layout in mind, the Peninsula Golf Club, with its 27 manicured holes and GPS loaded carts is terrific.

Anyone say 'fresh seafood?' You can't go wrong at any of our restaurants. Try 'Bahama Bobs' for the fresh catch of the day. The lunch specials are to die for. Its hard not to enjoy a meal when the majestic waters of the Gulf can be seen from your table!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We rent a large house every summer in Morgantown for "family" week! We spend a lot of time in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area, but Fort Morgan area is by far our favorite! The home, "Sunshine" that we rented this year was just great for our needs! We were very pleased.

The cleaning was very good, b/c when I rented it I didn't realize pets were allowed and I could not even tell pets had been there, as we had our infant granddaughter along this time. It was a great location for beach access and pool access. Very nice week! Fresh Market Seafood in the Dollar General parking lot on Ft. Morgan Road has fresh seafood and is very reasonably priced for "bring in" cooking or they prepare to go, as well! Nice people!

I visited "Sunshine" 10-4-06 to 10-10-06 and had 8 guest come with me. We all loved it. It was a great experience for all of us. I also received a call from the owner to check on everything upon my arrival and a card thanking me for my business when I arrived home. It was a pleasure all the way around! I would definitely visit again. Thank You!

We had a very nice stay at "Sunshine" last week. The house comfortably held 11 of us. Big plus that all rooms had King size beds, plus the room with bunks. Kitchen is very large and there is plenty of seating. Close access to the beach and pool! Great location that we would definitely return to in the future. Only complaint is that all the smoke detectors went off at the same time at 6:00 in the morning. A call was placed to get it taken care of but nobody ever showed up or called back. I assume it is just a battery issue, but since it was an issue with the safety of the house I would have expected some urgency with getting it repaired.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall the property was as advertised but is in need of some updates. The floors and bathrooms needed some deep cleaning and two of bunk beds had sandy sheets. Our first two days were beautiful but then Trop Storm Cindy pretty well ruined the rest of our week. We ended up leaving three days early to enjoy Nashville. This unfortunately is the risk you take. The service was great and the on-site help (specifically John) was very helpful and courteous.

Reviewer Comments:

We had an overall good experience. Loved the house. We had little ones with us so all the stairs and high porch stairs were a challenge. We brought gates, but they didn't fit on the uneven walls on the stairs. But, we made do. There were a couple of minor problems. Ice maker on the fritz, we bought ice. We didn't figure out how to get any stations on the TV til the end of the week. Some of the bedroom TVs never did get any service. We called customer service several times and got no answer or response. Small pool was closed all week. We saw 2 snakes. The kids loved that, but some of us squealed. LOL I would definitely give a good review and a good recommendation for the house. It was very competitive in price and in a beautiful area. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We've had some horrible thunderstorms before your arrival that really messed with the TVs and the cable on the island. Thanks for letting us know about the ice maker, it has been fixed. And while you don't see them all the time, snakes do exist here in the south. Best to just let them go on their merry way and stay clear of them. We're glad you enjoyed the home and the area, and hope you'll come back again soon.
