About Bill Byrd

We are a large extended family from grand kids to grand parents, that have been to many different beaches and many different oceans.

Bill Byrd purchased this house in 2013

Why Bill Byrd chose Gulf Shores

We purchased this property after we stayed here and experienced the vacation of a lifetime. Gulf Shores is a very family oriented community, which makes this a great family vacation get away.

Sunsation......welcoming you to our home away from home, where its more than just a vacation,

it's a lifestyle!

What makes this house unique

This property is in an excellent location. Close enough to the heart of Gulf Shores to enjoy the great food and shopping, yet far enough away from the condos and crowded areas of the beach.

Great House & Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED this house! It was perfect for our family, great location from the beach and our own pool which was put to good use! The owners were amazing and very accommodating. Any issues that came up they were there to help. It was nice renting someone's home, the house was fully stocked and it felt more like a home than a hotel! Would definitely recommend and use again!!!

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

It was an enjoyable stay. The house was as described. Everyone had a blast. They did show the house while we were there. My one complaint was someone was sleeping in one of the bedrooms and they still walked in there and looked around. Maybe the house should have been shown when no one had rented the house which I know that is hard but you do have a window from when the guest leave till the new one gets there which is a 6 hour span of time. Overall it was an outstanding time and we would go to that house again.

very nice

  • 4 of 5

Very nice beach house with close beach access. 2 bedrooms were a little small with no TVs. However our group (8 adults and 2 teens) were usually in the living areas. 2 kitchens came in very handy and both were stocked well with cooking pans/utensils/dishes etc. The only downside was the internet did not work for our first 2 1/2 days.. That was not the fault of the owner and they did everything they could to get the problem resolved. Would definitely use this property again and recommend it to a friend.

Overall Great

  • 3 of 5

The place was absolutely beautiful and perfect location to the beach. It was also the perfect size for our family and had the perfect amount of space. The only draw back was we felt we were intruding on someone's home rather than renting a place to stay. The owners of the place dropped in a few times and even spent time at the neighbors house and the last day our checkout was ten am and they showed up at eight am to start cleaning. It was very awkward. It felt as if they were wanting to police us rather than provide a comfortable, hospitable stay.

Owner's Response: It's unfortunate that you feel this way. It is a juggling act to maintain/manage a Vacation Rental. The owners were requested to repair items at one the homes; this requires them to show up to their homes to repair requested items. They were trying to accommodate your request to make your stay the best it can possibly be. They reside in Gulf Shores, and during Fourth of July week, they were spending time with their friends NOT policing anyone. They have been doing holidays with the neighbors for the past 4 years and have never policed any group.

The house was awesome. This is the first time we had our own pool and it got used more than we anticipated. The owners were amazing as well!!

Great Family house

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this house! Plenty of beds for our big family. The down stairs picnic/bar area was great for cookouts and hanging out. The kids loved the pool! Thanks so much for a great vacation!
