Perfect Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

We found this house to be an excellent beach rental for our family. We were 17 adults and adult children at our maximum. The open design of kitchen area, dining area, and living room were great. There was plenty of space for people to sit, eat, or lounge around. The kitchen has a separate ice machine that was wonderful. The deck out back is large and covered with plenty of places to sit. The view of the water is unobstructed; you can see up and down the beach from the deck. We enjoyed seeing dolphins feeding just off the beach on several afternoons. Sleeping arrangements required a bit of creativity for us with the number of adults we had. However, several of the bedrooms were large enough to accommodate blow-up beds so everything worked out well. The owner, Sam, met us at the home on check-in day and provided an orientation to the home. He checked back with us the next day to make certain everything was to our liking. The house was very clean and very well appointed. Everyone in our group raved about the place (and we have one or two who tend to be very particular, if you know what I mean). We happened to be there over the 4th of July holiday and were easily able to view the City of Gulf Shores fireworks display from the beach in front of the house. We would absolutely return here in the future. The location, the accommodation itself, and the attentiveness of the owner make this a true 5-star rental.

First Class IS "FIRST CLASS"!

  • 5 of 5

Just as the name implies, this home is like being in “First Class”— From the moment you enter the spacious kitchen, dining and living area and take in the beautiful view you feel like you have definitely been upgraded to First Class. Each of the six bedrooms also have been beautifully decorated and each having its own bathroom is a plus.

We had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Sam, and he is also “First Class”! Sam pays close attention to detail and it is obvious in this beautiful home. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever need, including an ice maker! The fact that the dishes, etc. all match made this house really feel like home and not just another rental!

It is obvious Sam has a real interest in the comfort of his guests and welcomes all suggestions for improvement. We must say, we could not think of anything that would make this home more comfortable. We have stayed in many Gulf Coast rentals from Texas to Florida and this is by far "First Class"!

If you are looking for a relaxing time right on the beach, this house is definitely “First Class”!

THANK YOU SAM!

Great house and great location

  • 4 of 5

This home is very well taken care of and Sam is wonderful to work with. We did not have any major issues arise while we were there but a few things were not working upon our arrival (unknown to us, Sam called to tell us about them) and they took care of it right away. The house is huge and we had plenty of room for everyone (there were 16 of us)! The privacy of the beach was wonderful and we were able to spread out and let the kids play! We loved the covered area under the house and had we had any rain while we were there it would have been a perfect place to hang out and still be outside! The kitchen is stocked with just about everything you would need. With each bedroom having its own bathroom we were able to feel like we each had our own space! The mattresses in all the bedrooms, except for the bunks were very loud and probably need to be replaced but other then that, our time spent here was wonderful! We definitely hope to be back in the future!!

Not young adult friendly

  • 3 of 5

My group of 19-23 year old girls chose to stay here for Spring Break. While the house itself could not have been any more perfect, the renter's daughter was a nuisance. At no point in time was I aware that she would be relevant to our stay. Random appearances by her were made and random "Spring Break Rules" were verbally established when first meeting. Nothing of this sort was mentioned in our contract between Sam and I, besides the general check in/out, you break it you buy it sort of deal. All was completely understood and respected until the daughter decided to come INSIDE the house one night. She claimed "a complaint was called". I was sitting in the carport located directly under the living room and could not hear a single conversation/music being played and later that afternoon we checked in with our neighbors and we had not disrupted their stay at all. She complained about the cleanliness of the house during the middle of our stay (nothing broken/damaged, just things that could and WERE thrown away before we left obviously). Over all it was a good experience, but for future advice, you should include that the daughter will be randomly showing up and checking in on the group in the contract or at least include her name period in the contract. She was at no point mentioned, so really we didn't even have to listen to what she was saying, but out of respect we did. Also, it is quite illegal to enter your houses while currently being rented and occupied like she did. I expected the respect of examining the final appearance of the house at the end of our stay and THEN seeing if there were any complaints about how we left it. The presence of major construction directly in front of our house would have been nice to know also. Thank you for the beautiful home.

Owner's Response: We love to host young responsible adults. We have invited groups of students down to relax and enjoy what mother nature has created here in Gulf Shores Al for years. We must have a safe environment for our guest and the guest of other homeowners. In doing so, my managers are overly protective of our guest and houses from time to time. I will reiterate to them that entering the houses is not allowed. I will update my contract between our guest and me to reflect this.

Enjoyed the easy beach access and spaciousness of this home

  • 5 of 5

Our book club celebrated our 20th year of meeting together with a trip to the beach. The house suited our group of eight quite comfortably. There was more than enough space for us to gather together as well as to spread out and relax. We appreciated the uncluttered décor and comfortable furniture. The beach proximity was perfect. Don't underestimate the benefit of being directly on the beach -- it makes all the difference! We were able to sit for hours at the waters edge enjoying the weather and each other's company. When we needed something from the house we just popped in to get it and came right back out. You can't be that nimble if you're in a high-rise or even across the street from the beach. The property manager stopped by during our stay. While we didn't need anything, it was nice to know that there was someone nearby who could be contacted if anything needed attention at the property. All in all, this beach house was just the right place for our group to add more delightful memories to our 20+ year history!

A "NO LABOR" Labor Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time my family had at such a lovely home --- not a house but a home. It felt like ours! Wish it was too! Everything was neat and clean upon arrival so we could get down to brass tacks and RELAX! And the decor isn't so fancy schmancy that you felt like you couldn't relax - but it's not Brady Bunch old by a long shot. Very fashionable in a comfortable way. And what seals the deal is that the owners are very kind, available and helpful. What we really loved about Gulf Shores is how quiet it is night and day. Definitely not a party town (that we could tell) but a place for families to relax. We felt like the kids were safe at this property and unless we were on the beach, we could let them roam as they wished. Strangely we fell in LOVE with the ice machine! Nothing like having ice for cool drinks and to keep the cooler icy! Really, I could go on and on, but I if you are reading this and trying to decide whether to rent or not --- RENT! It will not disappoint!
