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!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a family Thanksgiving there. The house was perfect for the 10 of us. It is right across the street from the beach access boardwalk. Negatives, 1) pets loved the beach but the area surrounding the house was so full of sand burrs that going potty was an issue, feet bleeding, etc. it would have.been nice if the area had been raked prior to our visit. 2) The house had obviously not been cleaned prior to our arrival. The decorative bed pillows looked nice by here was sand in the sheets so we had to wash the sheets. The floor was dirty and sandy when we walked in, without shoes, so we had to sweep the floors. There was dried fruit juice on the night stand. 3) All 4 of the twin mattresses are so uncomfortable that they were barely sleepable.new mattresses are desperately needed! All 3 of the King beds were great! I would return if these issues were dealt with

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the house and the thoughtful way that the pack and plays were provided. Also we loved the outside shower. I was quiet and not crowded. We had a couple of issues that were fixed promptly and courteously. I would recommend this for a family gathering. This was our Christmas gift to our children and grandchildren...though we all know those grands will open something!

Reviewer Comments:

There were multiple maintenance issues that need to be addressed. Here is the list: Washer • There was a massive water leak when we tried to use the washer. Apparently, the maintenance man had disconnected the pump for repair but did not notify us … so when the washer began to load with water is leaked from the second floor to the kitchen and downstairs bedroom. • The maintenance man was responsive and courteous but the disruption and running fans for two days was very annoying. A simple note not to use the washer would have prevented to problem Upstairs bedroom with a king bed (not the master bedroom) • The bed frame was loose from the headboard and the bed was very unstable. The maintenance man had to drill holes and bolt together the frame and headboard. Also, the headboard had a major crack at the bottom left corner • The ceiling fan was very noisy to the point it could not be run while sleeping • The door knob to the outside deck was rusted and difficult to use • The TV signal was weak and the programs would fade in and out Kitchen • The refrigerator ice maker leaked water and the cubes stuck together making the ice unusable • The stove light did not work. The stove cooktop control knobs had no labels making the stove very hard to use • One of the overhead lights did not work • There not enough dish cloths Living Room • The couches were dirty and needed to be cleaned Dining Room • The dining room table top was warping and separating from the particle board Bathrooms • Missing drain stopper in many of the bathrooms Other • Most of the door handles / knobs were loose and needed tightening and oiling

Owner's Response: Sorry about the washing machine issue and all of the mentioned concerns will be addressed if already not corrected. This very nice home was chosen by you for a reason. It is a great house, close to the pool and you can go to the beach on the boardwalk. Small issues and concerns of our guests are always corrected.

We love Mirgantown. The beaches are great. However, our stay at sunshine house was not enjoyable. The house was dirty. The air conditioning didn't work for the first three days of our stay and the Internet never worked despite requesting it to be fixed daily.

Owner's Response: This is a great house and has been rented all year long. The house is cleaned before every guest arrives. This is a house and things happen. All issues were addressed. We have no control over the internet on the gulf coast. Weather and other factors contribute to this problem. The house has all the necessary equipment for the internet to work.
