Wonderful Stay Here

  • 5 of 5

My family & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is well appointed, up-to-date, and clean. The rental staff were most helpful, polite & professional. I'd rent here again in a heart beat!!!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Overall would give this property an excellent rating. House was beautiful and comfortable for a large group. Had a fabulous time. Owner was very responsive to questions and issues we had. Would recommend a couple of things to make it even better! WiFi did not work very well the entire week. Would log onto the WiFi available but would not stay connected at all. This needs some work. Kitchen could use a few more supplies such as pots and pans and bowls for prep work. Grill leaves a lot to be desired, very small to accommodate large groups as well as not having a cover to control temps, such a nice house could use a better grill. One more thing that would make outdoor area more desirable would be to have a table and chairs with umbrella at each end of the pool. There is plenty of room and with no shade at all around the pool it would be nice to have the table with umbrella to sit under occasionally and get out of the direct sun.

Overall rating would be very good. Location and overall accommodations are great for large family gatherings. We have now rented 2 years in a row and pre-rented, again, next year. Limited number of some kitchen accessories (pans, trays, pots) and toaster not working. Need more than one coffee maker for such large number of people. Overall, though, high ratings and nice people to rent from.

Family vacation

This is our second year to stay at Summer Salt East and West. We absolutely love the area and the houses. We have never had any issues whatsoever. Last year we had the opportunity to visit with one of the owners who was extremely friendly and accommodating. We look forward to continuing the tradition of spending our family vacation here!

Located on the sugar white sands of Alabama's Gulf Coast the area offers many fun activities including fishing the gulf, bays & back waters, boating, walking & biking trails from Orange Beach all the way to historic Fort Morgan, birdwatching at the Bon Secour Wildilfe Refuge, watching the Blue Angels practice over the Gulf or at NAS Pensacola or just lazing the afternoon in the sun. Shopping at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is always an option for a rainy afternoon or visiting the fabulous shops at The Wharf in Orange Beach for some shopping, dining & entertainment all in one convenient location. The options for dining are endless, from seafood shacks to fine dining- we have it all! Nightlife is also varied but don't forget to stop by the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge on the Alabama-Florida state line anytime. They even offer church services every Sunday.
