Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a blast at your house again this year. The weather was great and we caught enough black drum and blue crab off the dock to have a big meal one night, good times.

Pictures dont do home or location justice!!!

  • 5 of 5

At first we were skeptical about renting something across the street from the beach, because we have always stayed in gulf front homes over the years, but this home was INCREDIBLE!!! Our children had the best time at this amazing property. They were able to fish off the docks, swim behind the home, play on the white sandy beach behind the home, take the kayaks for a trips to the "ISLANDS" located in the pass and on ole river. You can see the ocean perfect with unobstructed views from the 2nd and 3rd south side decks, and every time we wanted to go to the beach, it took us all of 20-30 seconds to drive across the gated Ono island bridge across the street to the public beach access, where there are public restrooms and plenty of parking.

This home is central to everything in Orange Beach and only 12-15 minutes from Gulf Shores. One of my families' favorite parts was sitting on the sandy beach behind the house and watching boats, and an occasional dolphin swim by. The water at the end of the pier was probably 5-7 ft deep depending on where the tides were according to my husband, so my kids loved swimming behind the home off the sandy beach.

Hope to be back soon!!!

Best of Both Worlds

  • 5 of 5

To describe our recent stay as superb might not give full credit to the property. This was one of our family's greatest Thanksgiving getaways bar none! Greg thank you from our whole family, we had a blast! The rooms are all as described, pictures are accurate, and the view from all the decks are wonderful. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need and the wine cooler - might have to buy one of those for my house. We were treated to dolphins jumping and playing on two occasions and the kids really enjoyed the kayaks. We also enjoyed the gym privileges at the Ono Island Community Center...thank you and we will return.

Stunning Home & Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family can't thank you enough for sharing your wonderful beach home with us. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place to stay. The interior is stunning and the house is well stocked with everything you need to accommodate large groups.

We enjoyed watching the sun set every afternoon while sitting on the dock. It's also a great place to do some fishing! I can't say enough about this house other than it's PERFECT and we hope to visit again soon!

Better than Advertised!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our group stayed at this awesome property recently and everyone is still talking about how much fun we had! All the pictures are up to date and everything was as advertised!!

The views from the decks are incredible and the master bedroom has the most comfortable mattress we have ever slept on. We would highly recommend this house to any families looking for a nice, fun, house that's close to everything!!

We loved the sandy beach area behind the home and it was hard to leave and go across the street to the beach!! We loved watching the boats and dolphins swim down Ole River. The kitchen was well stocked with any pots, pans, and appliances anyone should need. All the furnishings are updated and the home was very clean when we arrived, the home is also very well maintained. We love the area and hope to make it back down to this vacation home again real soon!!

Great Property!! Spectacular location, sunsets, & views!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our trip to this property was great!! All the pictures are accurate, the home was clean, well maintained, and provided incredible views!!

The sandy beach behind the house was great! Our family loved having our own private beach area and access to the two kayaks. The kitchen was also well stocked and we enjoyed having access to the ice maker in the kitchen and wine chiller. Greg was very responsive and quick to answer any questions or minor issues we had. We plan to come back again soon, everyone in the group only had great things to say about the property, and everyone really enjoyed there stay.

An awesome vacation...once again!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I returned to vacation at this home again this year; we knew after our stay last year that we would all be back! Once again, the beautiful home made for a restful, relaxing, and fun vacation! The spacious open floor plan is ideal for an entire family to enjoy! The home was immaculate, and the decor is stunning! It's elegance and location truly provides for the luxurious vacation we all deserve! My husband and I will always cherish the memories of drinking coffee, admiring our unforgettable view overlooking Ole River. Our children loved our time at the beach, which is conveniently seconds away. Along with the convenience factor, Greg was available to answer any questions we had regarding the home. What an amazing property!!!
