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

We had two small problems after we arrived that were rectified very quickly after we placed a phone call. Beth and Kenny were great. We found the condo neat and clean with a generous amount of towels and blankets clean and ready for use. We were very pleased. Relax on the Beach team (Teri, Beth and Kenny) provide EXCEPTIONAL and professional care and information!! We will absolutely vacation again in a Relax on the Beach home! It is very hard to top how good you guys are. Please keep up the great work!!! Recommendations for future guests - Actually, we recommend Relax On The Beach to the other snowbirds we meet during our stay. Especially, the ones that are not happy with their provider. We know that they will be taken care of in a fair and consistent manner if they deal with your company. We enjoyed the Complete Angler, the Gulf Island Grill and Mikee's. The bus ride to Biloxi Casinos was a great value and a fun trip especially when you want to fill up a poor weather day. We do not use Facebook, but we do promote your company both on vacation and back home.

The condo was great! Spacious and could accommodate up to 8 people! The only problem I had was the staff always bugging us and entering our room when we were absent. Otherwise, good overall

Owner's Response: LOL! So glad you enjoyed the condo. Y'all were great. Please understand that we are 100% responsible for our owners' properties. To cover ourselves, we have to check in at all of our properties during spring break. Unfortunately, history has shown that not all spring break guests are as courteous and responsible as you all. ;)

We had a great time here in this Condo. Great views of the gulf at all times and the sunsets were spectacular. The condo has been updated with new furniture in the sitting area. Bed was very comfortable. The only complaint would be the shower off the master bedroom. I see others have complained about it in previous posts but it has not been fixed. Needs to be replaced. Almost got locked in there and had to kick my way out! It truly needs to be fixed. It's sad that you have to get so worked up over a stupid shower door. Other than that it was a great place and would book it again

We have stayed at the lighthouse for many years even before the new one was built. It's a nice condo great location. The ice maker didn't work so we waited till after the holiday to call. They sent someone right out the next morning and fixed immediately. However the shower door in master bdrm needs some wrk. It doesn't want to shut. Really no big complaints. We enjoyed our week!

Reviewer Comments:

Location was great. The Condo is perect size for couple or small family. My first impression as I walked in was of a cheap motel with punget smell of pine sol. Baseboards and living room furniture were very dirty. Sheer curtains in living room had mold on them when opened. Air condition was set at 74 degrees with note asking not to decrease due to compresser freezing up? WTH? Good thing I brought my home fan. Can't imagine how it would feel in 95 degree weather. Bedroom and kitchen were good. Condo was private. I would only rent this condo again if AC was fixed.While on Vacation the last thing a person should worry about is freezing up the compresser on the AC unit. If not fixed at least give notice to the renter. I would not have rented this had I known. Furniture either cleaned ir replaced. Management was good. Had batteries replaced in smoke detectors. Maintenance responded promply. This unit could have 5 stars if issues are resolved.

Owner's Response: We will talk with cleaners. Again, after busy season homes are in need of deep cleans. A/C are not miracle workers. Guests turn them down to 65 degrees thinking it will cool house to that. A/C can only cool a home roughly 15-20 degrees cooler than the outside temperature (under perfect conditions, blinds shut and doors closed). There is nothing wrong with the A/C over there. Universal recommended settings by the way, are 68 degrees in winter and 78 degrees in summer!

Very nicely appointed condo. Love the spacious open roof balcony. Very nice views. Watched dolphins every morning from the balcony. Kids had a blast in the shallow water between the beach and the sand bar. Lots of water pressure in the shower. Very convenient location. Several dishes were left dirty in the cabinets from previous occupant. Bath tub and shower stall was not very clean upon our arrival. No batteries in the tv remotes.

The condo was very nice with a great view of the beach. The parking was great as I was able to keep my vehicle in covered areas the whole trip. We were closed to the grocery, the track, the hangout and many other places. Very nice pools and very easy to get to the beach meaning no super long walkways and even longer treks across sand. Overall this was a great place and we will return! Thanks
