About Ruby Walker

We built this house for our retirement but then found a different property to retire to.

Why Ruby Walker chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This property is right on the beach with great east and west unobstructed views of sunrises and sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 4th year to stay at Wave Watch and one of our best vacations. The weather was perfect and the water was the best until Friday when it got a little rough and murky . Our 3 grandsons enjoyed the star fish, sand dollars, hourseshoe crabs and other wildlife on the beach. We took a charter fishing tri[p on Friday(Dottie Jo) and recommend it to all- Capt. Joe Garris . Recommend the Gulf Shores Seafood Market for crablegs- Better than any restaurant. Thanks to Mrs. Ruby for her hospitality over the last 4 years. She has been the most gracious host for sharing her home with us. Thanks to Christy for always having the house in impeccable order when we arrive. We hope everyone who stays here has a wonderful and relaxing vacation.

The Best Time Ever!!

  • 5 of 5

As stated in many previous reviews, Wave Watch is truly, absolutely perfect!!! And Miss Ruby is so nice and accommodating. The house was so well stocked with kitchen supplies that we barely had to use any of the "unordinary" equipment that I had brought from my house, including a crock-pot, a coffee grinder, and my nice knives...the house had everything!!! The house was exactly as shown in the pictures, but it's all so much better in person. The big deck out front is made out of composite decking and was very pleasant to walk barefoot on. The bedrooms and bathrooms were decked out nicely. There were so many little things about the house that made it such a pleasure to stay at that it's hard to list them all! We have already booked our next trip for next year, and look very forward to staying here again!!! Oh....and we saw dolphins, 2 turtles, and a sting ray while we were there...how cool is that???

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wave Watch was absolutely perfect! This was the first time my husband and I had ever (16 years together) been to the beach and I could not have asked for a better location and home. The house was much larger than what we needed, but well worth it. The memories we made will last a lifetime. The views were priceless!! Ms. Ruby was a pleasure to work with, very accommodating, and understanding. I highly recommend Wave Watch for any vacation. My husband and myself cannot wait until we are able to come back. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!! We will visit again soon.

Sister/Friends Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Wave Watch was awesome!!! We 10 women for a girls weekend. There was plenty of rooms and bathrooms for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was close enough to Sassy Bass and Tacky Jacks ( good places to eat) and 25 minutes from gulf shores. I would recommend Watch Watch for any find of get away!!! Ms Ruby (the owner) was real easy to communicate with and helped us in anyway she could.

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to visit the Fort Morgan area, but was our first time to stay at Wave Watch. What a wonderful house on the beach!! Ruby has been amazing to work with, always very quick to respond to any questions we had. Her house is beautiful & very clean, with everything we needed. We met up with another family here for vacation and there was plenty of room for all of us, very comfortable. It's right on the beach, which is not crowded and was just perfect for us! We can't wait to return again!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family has rented from Mrs. Ruby the past two years. We love the location. The house is right on the water and the beach is not crowded. The large deck facing the water was our favorite part. There is plenty of space for hanging out in the comfortable lounge chairs provided, great space for kids to play, and large enough for a game of bag toss.

There was plenty of space inside the house for cooking and eating... which we love to do!

Mr. and Mrs. Walker are very accommodating .

I would recommend this house for families of any age.
