About Jack

I am happily married, and have two children. I love to play golf and go deep-sea fishing in my spare time. We were the first licensed owner-rental managers in Emerald Key, and have enjoyed helping other owners become managers of their properties. We have been renting via VRBO for years and feel we offer the best value on the market. We live locally and maintain the unit in perfect order - always paying attention to all of the little details. Inquiries are always answered promptly and accurately.

Jack purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jack chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We chose to purchase this unit due to its perfect location on the beach, fantastic floor plan, the very low-density complex (18 units), awesome construction, and its close proximity to our home and our other rental unit.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is only a couple of minutes from our favorite restaurants and amusement park. I could stare at the ocean and sand from the comfort of this unit all day long. It's nice to pack a few clothes for a weekend trip without having to load the whole house as everything we need is always there for us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cannot find the words to express how much we appreciate the condo! It was EVERYTHING that was promised and more!! There were no surprises, it was beautiful, comfortable, and relaxing. Our 2 year old, 10 year old and 13 year old absolutely had a blast going from pool to beach. We definitely will be going back. Thank you for your help! We tried to care for it as if it were our own.

Thank you,

You could not find a better condo anywhere! We feel so fortunate to have stayed at Emerald Key #502. This was definately the best family vacation ever. The condo was well furnished and very comfortable. The view from the balcony was awesome. If your still looking for a just found it. After staying at Emerald Key I realized just how important staying at a low density building is. The private beach offered plenty of room for playing. The hotels and high rise condos down the street seemed to be wall to wall umbrellas. (very packed don't go there) During our stay we collected sea shells, sand dollars, saw dolphins, stingrays, and even a shark, and of course swam and rode the waves in on our boogie boards. The Shopping center accross the street was so convenient. We will be back. Thank you to the Burrell Family for offering this place.

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and comfortable and the building was ideal. We prefer low density locations and this building only has 18 units. It is near shopping, groceries, and restaurants. The owner was easy to work with and we'll certainly consider this condo in the future!

Everything was perfect!! Just as we had hoped!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful! It was just as shown in the pictures, video and description. It was very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. It was also nice to have 2 full baths and a laundry room with washer and dryer. Before we arrived, new carpet had been installed in the unit. Jack was wonderful to work with! He was so accommodating and was always quick to respond to any questions. The location of the condo was and restaurants were close by as well as attractions. We traveled with 4 of our six children with ages ranging from 3-20. The condo and the area is very family friendly. The view from the condo is amazing...we were able to enjoy sunsets, sunrises and even dolphin sightings! I highly recommend this condo and renting from the Burrell's. When it was time to leave, none of us were ready to come home! We definitely plan on staying here again.
