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 Alabama Gulf Coast

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

The home exceeded our expectations. The Relax on the Beach staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Website is easy to navigate and full of helpful information! Will absolutely vacation again in a RelaxontheBeach home!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I got married on the beach while staying at The Sunflower July 4th-11th, 2009. This is one of the few beachhouses that will allow pets, too! The house has beautiful decor, had more than enough space for our extended families, a nicely equipped kitchen and was absolutely wonderful. We could watch our family playing in the surf from the house balconies and it was just a quick skip to the water. We had ages 3-83 staying with us and it was comfortable for young and old alike. We could also see the bay from other windows. The master suite is huge and the beds were comfortable and plentiful. Finally, enough bathrooms for everyone! We stay at the beach every summer and this was by far my favorite house. It was close to shopping, restaurants, outlet mall, water park, SuperWalmart, etc. This will be the first time I have wanted to rent the same house for another trip. It was exquisite! One I would buy if I win the lottery!

Reviewer Comments:

The main points were, extremely slow internet connection, we saw a roach in the kitchen, poor cable television selection, there were some issues with the television remote, the grounds had quite a bit of litter left by former renters, the decking could use a good refurbishing/power washing and the fence alongside the house is broken and is in need of repair/replacement, the ice machine doesn't work, and the dishwasher left a considerable amount of residue on the dishes. We had to hand wash the dishes. It would have been nice to have a television in the upstairs sitting area. There was a light out in the master bath shower and also had broken blinds. The tub in the downstairs bath accessible from the kitchen/family room had a slow draining tub.

Reviewer Comments:

There we 11 family members (ages 3-70) and we were very satisfied with Sunflower. Sunflower has been updated with new furniture and beds, nice. Ice machine needs attention. It was right on the beach with a great view and a short drive to all the activities. The management company was very accommodating from start to finish. They saw to our every need. Yes, we would recommend this property and management company. The majority of our activities centered in and around Orange Beach: Para-sailing, dolphin tour, jet skiing and the pier. Lulu's is a good place to visit. Call ahead to get a number in line or arrive early. Food was very good. The nightly crab hunts were so fun! Take your headlights, nets and buckets. Everyone we had contact with was super nice and very helpful. This was a wonderful family vacation. Great memories.
