About Melanie Finke

We live in Austin, Tx. Our family have been enjoying Orange Beach on our summer vacations for 10 plus years when our children were younger......We were reacquainted with Orange Beach and its beauty in 2011 and decided to buy our own place there. We love everything about Orange Beach....good food, great people and lots of time to enjoy the beach. It's the only place where we can truly relax......we hope that your stay will be all of that and more

Melanie Finke purchased this condo in 2011

Why Melanie Finke chose Orange Beach

Our condo has only 30 residences, unlike the larger units where you fight for beach chairs, space and elevators. Our place offers a private, hassle free setting - peace of mind that we all want when we vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We love the intimate patio with the couch and love seat which provides us time to converse and enjoy the sea.

Beautiful home in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Usually when the pictures don't tell the real story of the accomodation it is the exact opposite of this lovely home. And the pictures are very nice. But the reality is much, much nicer. A beautiful home, tastefully deocrated, with nearly everything you need for a fun beach retreat - and we left behind a juicer to make making Margaritas a little easier (enjoy!). We stayed in the off-season, so the beaches were empty, the building was quiet and we had pretty much all of the town to ourselves. For a quick, spring getaway it was perfect.

Owner's Response: Dan, Thank you for the kind words and the juicer! What a wonderful present and I'm sure it will get a lot of use! Now we have everything to make a stay there perfect! Please come back come back and stay with us again! Melanie and Chris

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is even better than the pictures. It's roomy, it's clean, it nicely decorated, the perfect location, and the owners were the kindest and easiest people to work with. This is the perfect place to stay when visiting Orange Beach. We didn't have one complaint. It was amazing! Thanks so much for sharing your place with us!

October At My Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

I was blessed to be able to spend a week with my cousin at this beautiful property right out of the pages of "Coastal Living." Then we stayed another week when my husband and other family members arrived. The property is decorated in a style reminiscent of Restoration Hardware. Not only is it gorgeous, but it has a beautiful, beachfront view that never let us down with sunrises and the setting sun. Every amenity imaginable was at our fingertips. When we weren't eating out we made homemade chicken and dumplings in the crockpot, breakfast every day, we had a debate party on the night of the last presidential debate cooking "left" and "right" wings on the grill, and enchiladas with all the fixings another evening. The beach was uncrowded as was the pool area. The fishermen were catching whiting, flounder, and a skip jack. We saw dolphins, one shark, crabs, and a few juvenile Portuguese, blue Man-O-War. The weather was perfect, as it always is in October in the south. We will definitely stay here again, hopefully, in the not-so-distant future. We have been visiting this area for over twenty-one years, and we are so thankful that people such as yourselves open your homes to complete strangers so that we can feel a little like "locals," for a few weeks out of the year.

Excellent, beyond expectations!!!!

  • 5 of 5

As I originally indicated to the owner, I had to meet the needs of 3 couples over the age of 60. After literally viewing 200+ properties, I settled on this one and EVERYONE SINGLE PERSON INVOLVED FOUND THIS PROPERTY TO EXCEED THEIR EXPECTATIONS!

First of all, every person loved their beds, that say a lot for us mature and picky vacationers. Everyone marveled at how nicely the unit was decorated ( not what you would typically find in a rental unit.) It was also extremely clean, not a speck of sand was seen or felt. Any type of cooking appliance, utensils, glassware, etc. that we required were there. The patio was wonderful and easily accommodated all 6 adults plus a couple of guests. The unit had 4 great beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels. EVERYTHING in the description of the property is spot on except, one of the bedrooms has 2 queen size beds instead of a king.

Only complaint we had was it was hot with high humidity and no breeze the first few days.

If you like crowds, don't rent this unit. It is located in an area of a group of low rise buildings and, to the east of the property, there is open space. Except for 4 other units that had been rented, we had this strip of beach to ourselves. Can't recommend "The Gulf" to eat at. Good if you have kids, basically just serves burgers. Would definitely rent this unit again without hesitation.

Looking forward to your retrun, Melanie and Chris
