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 Gulf Shores

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!

Found it Hard to Relax

The property manager was adequately helpful.

The vacation rental was very dirty.

I was very happy with the location.

I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental property is very poorly maintained. Dirty dishes, dirty walls with coke spills, broken/loose tiles throughout the house, leaky roof during rain, upstairs AC didn't work, black mold on kitchen ceiling, no usable pots and pans, no utensils to eat with, broken toaster, mattresses super old, porch chairs all broken no where to sit, excessive number of broken toys and chairs under porch. I DO HAVE TO GIVE APPLAUSE TO THE STAFF FOR SENDING PEOPLE OUT TO CHECK AC AND LEAKS (they could not fix it) AND THEY BROUGHT US NICE CHAIRS, NEW POTS AND PANS, AND UTENSILS. Stayed at the property 2 years ago and it was fairly nice. Looks like it has not had any maintenance. Rental Fee too high for this seriously unmaintained property. Nice beach very very crowded.

Reviewer Comments:

Gorgeous view. Home is nice but could use a good scrub. No ice maker and refrigerator worked but I would have thought at least ice trays and some Of the staple Items you usually find in rentals like coffee filters salt pepper might have been available. Apparently they throw everything out. Just several trips to store for those type things and ice of course. Dishwasher works but is worrisome as the silverware holder is falling apart and flatware ends up in the bottom where I’m sure is going to be a nightmare when it jams up the rotating mechanism. Ac works good. Ants and mice joined us for the week. Apparently area is a beach mouse habitat so seriously glad we didn’t kill them. It was ok but we are comparing to other places we’ve stayed so that’s our point of reference on price and cleanliness. It’s ok. Everyone had fun and large dining table was great for meals and games. Plastic Patio furniture is cracked and broken and l would definitely bring my own folding chairs next time

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the dishwasher's silverware holder. We don't always have time to check on details in the short time between guests in the summer. Glad everyone had fun and enjoyed the gorgeous view.

Reviewer Comments:

Location is great. Beach is great. However, the property needs some overall general maintenance and sprucing up. Also might need to hire pest control as we found there were signs of mice and did have to evict a mouse 1 evening from the mother-in-law's bedroom.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the suggestions. We'll work with the owner to ensure that things are spiffed up. As for the mice and pest control, we're a little limited as the Alabama Beach Mouse is protected and on the endangered species list. I'm surprised you saw one! I guess from the standpoint of species preservation, we'll have to look at this as good news!

Reviewer Comments:

Some what nice, but with a few problems. Problem 1. Called management on first day we had no working ice maker and was told a repairman would be there the next morning and no one showed the next morning or the whole week so we went a week buying our ice. 2. Master bedroom upstairs the mattreess is completely worn out like sleeping on a slab of concrete.. carpet on the steps were filthy dirty and worn out. Other than these problems the house was okay.
