About Mike & Donna Mall

We live in Atlanta, GA. We have enjoyed the house since we purchased it in 1984. Our 2 children, now in college were born and raised going to the beach there and still love it today.

Mike & Donna Mall purchased this house in 1984

Why Mike & Donna Mall chose Alabama Gulf Coast

My wife and I have seen beaches all over the world and this place is still one of our favorites. We also purchased the house because it is away from the main part of Gulf Shores, but a short drive to all the main attractions.

What makes this house unique

The house has great views of the water inside and out. The house is in a private subdivision with a private beach.

Great House/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat the location of this house. The neighborhood is very quiet and it has access to a private beach area just across the street. Waking up every morning and looking out into the Gulf was one of our favorite parts and we cannot wait to go back!

Small house in a great location for a quiet beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family of four recently stayed at “The Dunes”.

The house is in a great location within a short walk to the beach that allowed for wonderful vacation. The house is in a private development -> hardly any people to share the beach with. The house itself is small, but it was just big enough for a family of four.

Though our stay was largely positive, I do want to share a few things that inconvenienced us a bit so that all are aware. The entire house was not as clean as we would have liked when we arrived. The kitchen & living room had crumbs, grease & dust. We spent the first few minutes of our stay wiping down the kitchen. I know a family had just left the morning we arrived, so there may have been a rush to get the house ready. The house is stocked with only the bare minimum (consumable) supplies. There is one roll of TP per bathroom. There was only one small roll of paper towels (some of which was consumed when we cleaned the kitchen on arrival). We could not find any additional trash bags after we filled up the one in the kitchen. We found two randomly placed dishwashing tablets (maybe got lucky there). Plan accordingly.

I believe a family any larger than four is going to feel cramped (our opinion). The kitchen is small & not ideal for preparing anything other than a light meal. If you plan to utilize the kitchen, be prepared to supply all condiments, spices, oils, etc. There just isn’t space for much preparation. For the life of us, we could not get the coffee maker to make a good cup of coffee, so be aware if you are particular about your java. We utilized the washer & dryer, & they worked well. The gas grill is small, but it worked as it should. There were 3 beach chairs, an umbrella & some beach toys in the utility room downstairs, but I can’t guarantee they will still be there. The owner, on more than one occasion, told me that there wasn’t room to store those items & would not be in the house. I was a bit disappointed when our family purchased those items prior to our vacation only to find them when we arrived. The Wi-Fi is slow. I mention that in case you are planning to utilize it for work or other purposes. Despite what the website says, the owner’s policy for check-out time is 9:00AM based on a form we received a week before our stay.

Overall:

If you are a small family considering a quiet beach vacation, I would encourage you to strongly consider this property. Be prepared to supply common consumables.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the mostly positive reveiw I have rentented many vacation homes an none have a unlimited supply of paper products. As far as the beach chairs/ umbrella goes. I never know what people leave. I Always tell people to take their belongings with them. Like I said, I don't have room to store them. I am sorry for you're disappointed in that regard. As far as the cleaning goes. I apologize for any inconvenience. People have different expectations and without putting my eyes on it I can't speek on that and have to take you're word and contact my cleaning service and share you're email. Thanks for renting.

Wonderful stay in a beautiful and well functioning home.

  • 5 of 5

Cannot speak enough about the entire experience. Mike was wonderful and communicative throughout the entire process, even calling during the stay just to check in and recommend some local activities. The house was exactly as promised: beautiful, well stocked and perfect for our family of five. Amazing private beach with quiet evenings on the patios. Looking forward to staying again next summer.

8867 Pompano Way Gulf Sores, AL 36542

There is great golf all around the area. Kiva Dunes is just 1mile away.

If you like civil war history, Fort Morgan is at the end of the peninsula and Fort Gaines is across the bay by a great ferry ride.
