Great Stay! Great Service!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion, and there were many of us split over a few houses. Pam was beyond helpful in getting us setup and the homes were perfect for us! Everett, the house manager, was always quick to take care of our needs and ensure any maintenance issues were resolved quickly.

Overall it was fantastic! Definitely will book agai , but way in advance!

Room for a large group with a short walk to the beach

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for our group of 11 girls. We enjoyed going to the beach and laying by the pool. I would definitely stay here again.

Stunning property, great location, fantastic owner

  • 5 of 5

I travelled down to Pamela's property in the Gulf Shores all the way from Cincinnati, OH with 12 guests, including myself. It was such a relief to arrive at this homely and well kept property after the long drive. Everything was clean, quaint, and beautifully designed and arranged. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the maintenance men of the property. Thy were so friendly and welcoming, we were eager to spend as much time as we could hanging out with them and chatting before they left. We spent time with them while they finished working on the new pool in the backyard, which we all loved and enjoyed. Communication from the point of booking in February, all the way through our arrival in May, was seamless with Pamela, as she answered my questions and concerns within hours of me sending her messages. Very much appreciated, and she definitely gives me the impression of a professional and trustworthy woman.

Besides pool access, we were happy to find that we were just a street behind the beach. We were also able to access lots of shops and restaurants easily, all within a ten minutes driving distance.

As far as space goes, we were happily surprised to find a folder up cot/mattress upstairs, which served as additional bedding to the two queens, King, pull out sofa, and bunk beds. We didn't even need to busy out the air mattress we brought with us. Everyone slept comfortably and we had ample space to mingle and hangout while down there.

All the amenities were provided as listed: bed linens, (awesome) pillows, hand soap, toilet paper, dish soap, towels, a grill... We had no issues with the wifi or Direct TV either. The house stayed a nice cool temperature, since we followed Pamela's suggestion of keeping doors and windows closed. We had no issue with the 85 degree weather.

The neighbors on the other side of the duplex were extremely friendly as well, as well as the residents at 1435.

It was really hard for me to say goodbye to this place, and the new friends we had made. I wish we were able to have rented it out for longer! I'm dying to rent this exact place at the same time next year... I hope the odds will be in our favor because I'm sure others will have their eyes on this one!!

Thank you, Pamela, and your wonderful team for being the most accommodating and helpful hosts!!

family reunion Memorial day 2016

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion of 14 enjoyed our stay at bay watch unit B. With a large crowd hard to please all the only complaint was to maybe put a window a/c unit upstairs. There was plenty of hot water and water pressure to take showers in all three bathrooms at same time which was great. We used paper products for our meals don't believe there would be enough plates for a group of 14. All appliances we used worked with no issues. There was pack n play there for our newborn grandbaby but daughter had brought one. There is a set of bunk beds in between the two rooms and 3 adults slept there with no problem and 2 of us were not young adults. There is a nice pool area and a sand area to put up a portable volleyball game or horseshoes etc. The backyard is fenced. It is a straight walk to the beach you do have to walk across a main road and the beach area is a lot less crowded. Owner response time is excellent when booking and we didn't have any issues so didn't have a reason to contact during our stay. Yes we would and will rent from owner again they have more then one property and the response time and service was one of the best I have had with Homeaway/VRBO.

Big Groups

  • 5 of 5

From the get go, I knew booking a trip for a big group of young men would be a challenge. I had searched for weeks on houses that would take a group of under 25 year olds (the average age requirement for booking) when I finally landed on Mrs. McLaughlin's home. She was terrific with her response time. The house was exactly as listed and although it is a split house, everything seemed very spacious! The house was very clean when we arrived and there was never a shortage of hot water (an issue when dealing with a large group). Some things to remember when booking are you will need to provide your own cleaning and toiletry supplies. I would absolutely book with Mrs. McLaughlin again and would recommend this property to all age groups. The only thing that wasn't included with the house was a pool. This wasn't a big issue at all but the words "with POOL!" are in the title. It was in a great location in Gulf Shores, a 5 minute drive to all the popular restaurants and a 5 minute walk to the beach! Trust me when I say, there is enough floor space to sleep up to 24 college students. Thanks for a great trip!

Owner's Response: Walker T Thank you for the kind words about your stay in our home. We do take pride in offering our guests a clean, comfortable home which is suitable for large groups at reasonable cost. The only minor correction is that the "pool" which is noted in the listing was specifically detailed to be completed after the dates of your stay. Happy you enjoyed your stay! Pam
