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.

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.

My girlfriends and I have stayed at Ruby's smaller house many times in the past but never the larger beach house. It was perfect! Clean, well stocked, along with plenty of space. We had one day of bad weather but were perfectly contented to stay inside and watch it rain on the beach, read from her collection, or nap on the couch. Rain or shine a lovely place. We were a group of six but there is space for 5-6 more without any problem.

Thank you again Ruby for sharing your beach house with us.

Great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

We were at the Wave Watch the second week in May before school got out and there was almost nobody else on the beach! It is not a crowded area and it was very relaxing. The house was perfect and the kitchen had everything we needed. Would definitely go again. Highly recommend staying at the Wave Watch and using the beach service that they recommend in their paperwork to rent a tent. It was so nice to have a shady spot in place on the beach. Four bedrooms and comfortable seating for at least ten people in the large family room.

Great Vacation Get A Way

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting Wave Watch and it will not be our last. The house is right on the beach, with a walkway that makes it even easier. It was so relaxing to sit on the beach or watch the waves from the deck. The house has a ton of windows as well. I enjoyed opening all the curtains every morning the to see the beach right there. Ruby was amazing to work with. She was very responsive and helpful since it was our first time visiting Gulf Shores as well. We can't wait to return to Gulf Shores and Wave Watch.
