About Rod Fitts - 2016

Hi, my name Rod Fitts and my wife is Kathleen. Our journey in the vacation rental business started in 2005 when we purchased Crystal Shores #1006 and Lighthouse #702 in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

In 2011 we launched "Gulfshoresbeachdays" as a place is to advertise our vacation rentals and to give our guests advice they could use to increase the quality of their stay.

I invite you to visit Gulfshoresbeachdays on the web to place a reservation, get information about restaurants, attractions and to read my blog with advice on everything from how to save money in Gulf Shores to what to do on rainy days.

Gulf Shores Beach Days is also an official member of AVROA, an industry trade association dedicated to preserving the personal relationship between owner and guest. We are very excited about this and each of our properties are AVROA certified which assures you that Kathleen and I are the real owners and that our properties are being run legitimately.

Thanks for your interest!

Rod & Kathleen Fitts

Rod Fitts - 2016 purchased this condo in 2005

Why Rod Fitts - 2016 chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We ended up in Gulf Shores because it is a family oriented community where we can relax on a world class beach without the rest of the world being there. The apartments we rent are the same apartments our children and grandchildren stay for vacations and all our properties are certified by The Association of Vacation Rental Operators and Affiliates (AVROA) which means you can rest assured that we will strive to give you the very best guest experience.

What makes this condo unique

Newer property with good location on West Beach Blvd with moderate density so fewer guest to share the beach with.

An ideal beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are leaving Gulf Shores this morning after a super family spring break trip. The condo was just perfect for our family of 5. It had all of the amenities and comforts that we parents needed and our 3 young kids loved everything about it--especially the pools and the foosball table in the owners lounge.

The view of the beach from the 10th floor is awesome. We loved listening to the sound of the waves as we fell asleep with the balcony door cracked each night. The unit was clean as a whistle and beautifully decorated. Really lovely.

Crystal Shores is in a great location. Close to everything fun in Gulf Shores. If the weather is too cool for swimming, you are just a short drive away from a dolphin cruise, putt putt, or even a movie.

Just as beautiful as I expected.

  • 5 of 5

The weather was disappointing but the condo was NOT. I was beautiful, clean and a wonderful view. Rod was the best owner I have ever worked with and I have been using VBRO for years. Will definitely stay there the next trip to Gulf Shores.

The perfect beach rental! You can't beat the location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at condo 1006. Rod (the condo owner) was very good at communicating with us before and during the trip to make sure everything went smoothly and was always available for questions about the property and area. We would highly recommend this rental! We will definitely rent this condo again if we come back to Gulf Shores!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of February here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is lovely and well equipped. The property as a whole is perfectly maintained. It's about a mile from restaurants and shops - a comfortable walk either along the beach or the road which has a bicycle lane that separates walkers from the traffic. The owner is friendly and very helpful! Highly recommend a stay here.
