About Marty & Jeanie Naumann
Marty and Jeanie have owned in Gulf Shores for over 10 years. We love it there. We have two grown children and 7 grandchildren and we love to take them all to the beach every year. We now live in Cincinnati, Ohio. We take great pride in our beach villa and try to give our guest a great experience.
Marty & Jeanie Naumann purchased this House in 2005
Why Marty & Jeanie Naumann chose Gulf Shores
We bought our villa because of the location and amenities which are almost perfect. Also for the cost, Such a great rental value for our guest and our family.
What makes this House unique
Our guest will love the easy deeded access to the beach, sitting on the front balconies and enjoying the beach view and atmosphere. Having a full bath down stairs and a very large master bedroom. Also the convience to the center of Gulf Shores and shops and restaurants is wonderful...
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Fun, relaxing. A few suggestions...
We were overall happy with the Crab Crib. The bedrooms were spacious, and our kids loved the big bunk bed and all the water toys. Nice to have an attached bathroom for the kids' room as well. The decor was cute and beachy. Street wasn't too busy, no problem to cross to get to the beach. Be advised, the grill is charcoal and not stocked.
Some suggestions to improve future stays: upgrade the master bed. It's nice and big, but you feel/hear every movement. Kitchen pans need replacing (really bad peeling Teflon). We had to unplug and reconnect the DVD player as it was done improperly and wouldn't play.
Our biggest issue was not having nearly enough toilet paper. The 3 bathrooms each only had a partial roll when we arrived, no extra. We stayed a week, so this definitely wasn't sufficient. We reached out to the owner, who said they leave plenty at the beginning of summer (our stay was in August). They offered to have the cleaning service bring some. The cleaning lady stopped by with only two rolls, still not enough for the week (or even to restock all 3 bathrooms one time). This was pretty frustrating, leaving us to have to go buy our own TP. Never had to do that at a VRBO home before. Would have appreciated a follow up from the owner to ensure we had been taken care of.
All in all we enjoyed our stay; hopefully our suggestions will improve the experience for future renters.
We loved the house, location and property amenities. I would stay here again.
The place was nice and tidy, really close to the beach and enough room for the family.
The place has all the necessities that we needed enough space for our guest the communication with the owner was great everything functioned as needed in the house best place to stay with your family on vacation.
We really enjoyed our stay! It was so roomy! I felt so comfortable!
We came in town for a baseball tournament. And stayed with 3 boys, it was so roomy everyone was comfortable. My husband and I’s room was like a getaway, with our own balcony! The walk to the beach was easy, and the pool was nice and private! Our 1st time in Gulf Shores and we enjoyed it very much! There was plenty of seafood restaurants everywhere to choose from. Thanks for letting us stay with y’all!
Thank you so much for your generous review. We love baseball, our grandson plays in college and his dad is over player development for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Come back to see us. Marty
Villa was clean, comfortable & as pictured online. Only a short walk to wide very clean beach. Minutes from lots of restaurants & located just past most high rise condos making the beach less crowded. Only negative is busy street location with older sliders not blocking noise making sleep difficult.
One of the best locations in Gulf Shores. A restaurant, convienience store, Ice cream parlor and seafood shop are less than a block away. The beach is directly across a two lane road with private beach access.
