About Susan

We are a family with school age children. We bought this bit of sand with a beachview with a dream of building a place where big extended families like ours could get everyone together. We didn't know at the time that life would lead to our living in Gulf Shores where we now manage our vacation rental homes and those of a number of our neighbors and friends.

Susan purchased this house in 2007

Why Susan chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We had our duplex When Pigs Fly which is just a few hundred feet from the lot on which we built Dream Big. We love this stretch of family-friendly West Beach where we are just a couple of miles from restaurants & shops, but in an area with just 4 rows of homes between the Gulf on the South, and Little Lagoon on the North.

What makes this house unique

Owning When Pigs Fly, and based on our own growing family which at that time was 18 (grandparents, parents, children), we knew it was hard to find a place where everyone could gather. We could have our family on one side, and the cousins on the other side. We put in the things we like or needed for our family--spaces for the kids, bedrooms that worked for parents with small children, a big pool area, grills, etc.

Reviewer Comments:

We held a 3 day corporate meeting at Dream Big. We wanted an off site get away where we could do some team building and blow off some steam, while holding casual business meeting during the day. It was a great property for this purpose and accommodated our 11 person team well. The wifi worked as needed and there were ample pots/pans and cooking utensils (strangely no coffee filters). We would consider coming back again. My main criticism stems from the 2 or 3 daily emails that I received from the property management firm reminding us about check out procedures such as cleaning and doing laundry. A $699 cleaning fee was paid, so I'm curious why such exacting cleaning requirements were needed. I understand that in peak times they would need to turn these units around quickly and a $700 fee would allow the property management to hire an adequate staff to turn this place around quickly without having the renters do most of the heavy lifting.

Reviewer Comments:

Dream big vacation rental was more than we imagined it to be...We had a party of 26 guest and it fit everyone nicely. We really enjoyed our stay from beginning to end. When we first arrive we got off on a rocky start, two of our guest got stuck in the elevator for about 20 minutes but the main office stay on the phone throughout the whole process. I would recommend the staff post visible signs next to the elevator on how to use the elevator properly because it's needed in this house with all those stairs. The pictures are true to how the house look. Overall we had an awesome time everyone truly enjoyed their stay and we will come again.

Overall the property was perfect for our reunion. Management was very accommodating. Plenty of parking, AC cold and the home had pretty much what we needed when we arrived. We will defiantly consider this home for future reunions.

Dream Big was a wonderful rental property. The rental matched the description very well. Everything was clean and ready the moment we walked in. There was lots of room for everyone. While the beach is beautiful and the water warm and inviting, having the pool was a very big plus for when kids tired of the salt and sand. We would very much recommnend this property!

Map

We are located in West Beach, a narrow stretch of land bound by the Gulf to the south, and Little Lagoon to the north. You'll have great views of both. In addition to the normal joys of our sugar white beach, a block and a half to our west is the 'pass', where the Gulf feeds Little Lagoon. The pass offers great fishing and an area that is perfect for kids to hunt for hermit crabs or watch the heron and pelicans in action.

Other Activities: rent a sea kayak, parasail, charter a fishing boat, take a dolphin cruise

Golf: We have 9 signature courses nearby as well as the Gulf State Park Course. You have a nice range of courses located 3-15 miles from West Beach so you can easily try them all!
