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 1st time staying at Wave Watch. We will definitely be back!! The house is beautiful, even better than the great pics online. We had wonderful weather and got to be outside every day. My husband also loved the massive living room tv to watch football on Thanksgiving day ! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.... (my husband may have to drag me away kicking and screaming...LOL

Great house, great beach!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here. Always enjoy being right on the beach. We had everything we needed and the house was just as advertised. The size was perfect for our 2 families. We never felt cramped and could find private space when needed. Thank you so much for a nice, restful week :)

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here during Thanksgiving week. The weather was wonderful and the house was PERFECT!! My husband especially enjoyed the HUGE television to watch football on Thanksgiving Day. The owners are wonderful to talk to if you need anything at all. The pictures online are gorgeous, but they don't compare to the actual house itself. It was perfectly clean, beautifully decorated and we can't wait to go back!!

Great house! Well stocked kitchen & plenty of space! Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Wave Watch. It was our first visit to an Alabama beach and we were not disappointed! Away from the hussle & bussle, it was perfect! Since we were there early Nov. it was almost like we had a private beach! Awesome place! Wish it wasn't so far from TX, we would come more often. Thank you for sharing your house and allowing us to make wonderful family memories. Besides spending quality time with family, our favorite part of the stay was watching the sun rises & sun sets, so beautiful!

Relax, Unwind, and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

We hated to leave! What a relaxing, enjoyable time we had at your Wave Watch! The ambience is excellent. The house is very clean and well decorated . The deck was perfect! You can sit on this extra-large deck and feel like you are at the ocean’s edge, which is only a few steps away. We highly recommend Wave Watch and plan to come back as often as possible. It is just outstanding!

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 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.
