About Jennifer Swank

Ken and Jennifer Swank wanted to create a vacation home that had everything they always searched for in a vacation rental - to be different, feel like a home...not a 'rental', have nice furniture, nice bedding, nice linens, and a private pool! Near the water/beach, 2 min drive to white sandy beautiful beaches, near 'local' restaurants/bars, but NOT charge 4 to 5 grand per week!! We didn't need 5 bedrooms and we wanted to bring our boat. We wanted to be able to park right in front of our front door, not haul everything through hallways after searching for one of three luggage carts, only to load everything on slow moving elevators waiting on 100 other vacationers. Sometimes we go out to the wharf ....shop, or another spot , and have a great dinner out...other nights we like to grill out a steak and enjoy a bottle of wine poolside. We love Orange Beach, and we are so proud of how Sanctuary House turned out , we love it and can really relax there - we hope you love it too. It is our goal to have consistent return customers for years to come.

Jennifer Swank purchased this house in 2014

Well maintained. Very comfortable. Amenities***

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Very clean, included anything we could have wished for (although on the rainy tropical storm days a DVD player would have been great)

Loved the pool and the outside shower.

Accessible to anything and everything we wanted to go and do and see.

We would love to come back again.

Flippers was our favorite restaurant; and then Shipp's Harbor Grill was very good too. Loved the Artist Colony and the glass blowing. We would have loved to do the Zip Lining at the Wharf but it was not open for business yet; maybe next trip.

Jennifer, Thank you for all your personal care and attention.

Gerry and Karen Stillions and the rest of the family members

Great July 4th Vacation at Sanctuary House!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for my family's summer vacation this year. The bedrooms are big - especially the master! And we all enjoyed the private pool. We brought our boat and spent most of the days on the water. The house is literally 5 minutes from the public boat launch across from Robinson Island. I hope we get to go back next year. Lovely home.

Orange Beach is the jewel of the Alabama gulf coast! Our vacation house, Sanctuary House at Orange Beach, is located in the heart of town. You can be as busy or as relaxed as you want...depends on what type of vacation you want! Sport fishing and boating are at the heart of Orange Beach, along with casual and fine dining alike. Several waterfront bars and restaurants ranging from super casual to a little nicer for a birthday or anniversary are less than 1 or 2 miles away. My husband and I have left information on our favorite spots for your convenience at the house.
