Guestbook comments from the manager

Really pretty and nice place. Loved the stay. Close to beaches, shopping, and dinning. Or everything was there at the house if you wanting to just stay in and eat.

The home exceeded our expectations. The RelaxontheBeach staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Their website is easy to navigate and full of helpful information!

Reviewer Comments:

We had 14 people stay in the rental for the week. The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms was wonderful. All bedrooms had a balcony which was very nice. Nice location, just a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed having the pool. The 2nd floor tends to be very warm compared to first and third levels. The rental itself needs a good deep cleaning. There was trash under beds, under couches, behind dressers from previous renters. The only other issue we encountered was with the adjoining rental. They had well over the amount of people staying there that they should have had. Made for very crowded pool at times. I will say though the noise from the adjoining rental was not excessive by any means.

Paradise West was probably a Paradise 5 years ago. It was clean but not maintained. Many Chairs around the pool were out of service because they were broken. Inside had similar issues of broken dinner chair, light bulbs hanging from the socket,doors on cabinet would not close, and the lists goes on. We had fun because our family has fun no matter were they stay.

Reviewer Comments:

The review of this property may read like a mixed bag. That's because I feel that is exactly what the property displayed. There are some very nice things about the property. The pier to the lagoon and the swimming pool were wonderful. The location is fabulous. The accommodations inside the property is where they need to put some work. I realize it's a beach vacation and generally you are going to be out and about but the appliances, electronics, and furniture need to be replaced. The cleaning services did not do a good job at all. There was sand and glitter throughout the inside, and we found a condom on the ground outside the rear stairway. Overall this property is fine, I would not likely return.

Reviewer Comments:

Overall, we loved the location, pool, dock, and we loved Gulf Shores! The pool was awesome and I had to email the company about a cabinet door and a couple of items to repair, they were very prompt and the maintenance guys were awesome! The only issue I had was the advertisement to the house was misleading, In no section, did it state that this was a duplex, we thought we were renting a single family home. One section says shared pool and the other says private pool. We had a large group, and so did the family next door. So we would not have rented this particular house, had we known it was a shared pool. I think the add needs to have more specifics. We loved the Relax on the Beach website and the way you set up the rental etc, but the add needs to have these items added. We would definitely rent from Relax on the Beach again, I will just call and get more details on the home, before we make the reservation. Overall our family vacation was Awesome!

Reviewer Comments:

The property needs update and maintenance. Housekeeping was poor and several maintenance issues. Exterior in poor condition and internally the housekeeping was unacceptable. Several drains in baths drain slow or inoperative all together. Pool chairs and furniture in disrepair. I would suggest a rehabilitation of the property, removal of the carpet, and a new housekeeping company. Photos of the property were deceiving. Nest time I will ask for new photos with date stamp prior to rental.

Reviewer Comments:

Reservations were made in October 2015 when we got there we had wash all the linen on the beds because there were spiders and hair in some of the beds. One bedroom on the 2nd floor the closet could not be fully used because there were rolls of carpet, nails and extra closet doors in the closet. The dishwasher did not work had standing water which was. reported to the office the tech came out and said they would contact the owner I never heard from them again. The refrigerator did cool properly but freezer worked fine. The oven did not heat properly cakes were cooked on the outside but raw on the inside. Bathroom on the second floor was full of mold I informed management when I made reservations that my mother had cancer and everything needed to be clean. i have pictures to support what I am saying. I had no problems paying for the rental but the management company had issues with refunding some of my money for inconveniences my family endured during our stay. The TVs were outdated and the children could hook up their games.
