Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 14

Long to be looking at the beach? Your wish is our command! Lookin' at the Beach was made for relaxing and reconnecting with the sea. The virtually wall to wall windows beckon you outside onto the covered 12-foot deep deck to experience the sights and sounds of the surf. The open living area has cable TV and wireless internet and flows into the kitchen. Also downstairs are two bedrooms. One has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds. They share a full bath. For your convenience, there is a full-sized washer and dryer.

A unique feature of this home is a spiral staircase leading directly to the master bedroom. This private oasis has a king bed, private bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower and opens onto a spacious balcony. The second of three bedrooms upstairs, accessed by a traditional staircase, has a queen bed, opens onto the balcony and comes equipped with a small kitchenette! The third bedroom, perfect for the kids, has two sets of bunk beds for a total of 4 twin beds. These two bedrooms share a full bath.

And if you have a really large group, we have another home, Sunflower, right next door that sleeps 16 more! Parking is no problem--there is room for up to 8 cars in the driveway and under the house. Lookin' at the Beach is close to everything Gulf Shores has to offer and we look forward to sharing it with you soon!

**Available to families and age 25+ groups to occupy.**

Lookin at the Beach is located at 1869 West Beach Blvd, Gulf Shores, AL 36542.

About RelaxontheBeach

My name is Kevin Wendelburg. I am a property owner, a real estate investor, and an Alabama real estate agent committed to 100% customer satisfaction. I will strive to under-promise and over-deliver with everything that I do. Hard work, personal responsibility, and an over achieving desire to provide the best product on the market are the cornerstones of my business, RelaxontheBeach.

I started RelaxontheBeach in 2004 because I knew that the vacation rental/property management business in Gulf Shores needed a complete overhaul. I purchased my first beach house in the early 2000's and immediately listed it with one of the larger property management firms in town. While I was thrilled that the house rented as well as it did, I was not happy with the draconian commission structure, poor cleaning standards, and slipshod maintenance.

I began to advertise and manage my property on my own and I doubled rental revenue in the first 24 months of owning the property.

Neighbors took note. I received phone calls. I received emails. How in the world, they wondered, was I able to generate so much traffic? Every weekend there was a car in my driveway. 'Simple' I said, 'treat every customer like family.'

The personal touch makes all the difference. Our potential guests are personally greeted by a knowledgeable representative. Our quality control director takes pride in the condition of all of our properties and ensures that our thorough cleanliness standards are met. We have a full maintenance department that does its best to address any maintenance concerns quickly.

We strive to provide guests with all the creature comforts of home. All RelaxontheBeach properties feature high speed Internet access and cable television. Many are pet friendly!

We want you to feel like you are getting a tremendous value for your vacation dollar. We want you to come back, and we want you to tell your friends. Give us a try. A great vacation awaits!

Why RelaxontheBeach chose Gulf Shores

I chose to buy a vacation rental house in Gulf Shores for a variety of reasons....the people are absolutely fantastic! Southern hospitality doesn't even begin to tell the entire story. From the waitresses with constant smiles on their faces, to the deep sea fishing boat captains with endless stories to tell, coastal Alabama can't be beat!

The beaches are the best in the world. Period. The finest white sand and the bluest turquoise waters await each and every guest. Need I say more?

World class golf is available in spades. Try your luck at Kiva Dunes, a perennial top 10 in the state of Alabama and ranked in Golf Digest's 'places to play' for an unforgettable links experience on the Gulf of Mexico. If you have a more traditional American layout in mind, the Peninsula Golf Club, with its 27 manicured holes and GPS loaded carts is terrific.

Anyone say 'fresh seafood?' You can't go wrong at any of our restaurants. Try 'Bahama Bobs' for the fresh catch of the day. The lunch specials are to die for. Its hard not to enjoy a meal when the majestic waters of the Gulf can be seen from your table!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was very clean, very comfortable, directly on the beach. It's a wonderful way to spend time with family and/or friends. The management company was VERY helpful and prompt if there were any issues. Try it, you might like it! We hoped to return there next year. The home exceeded our expectations. We could not have been happier with the house and the location!!! Relax on the Beach staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

John was exceptionally friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Reviewer Comments:

From the moment we drove up to this rental it was a huge disappointment. The pictures displayed on the site must have been taken years ago, as the place was nothing like what was portrayed. I have pictures to back up my statements here. There was mold on the shower curtains, lamps in the bedrooms were dirty and rusted,there were holes in the walls in the bathroom. The air vents were dirty and rusty, there was supposed to be a refrigerator in the upstairs bedroom instead there was a big hole. All the windows and doors were dirty. The grill was literally unusable, we had to go purchase one. There were roaches in the bathroom! I have never been so disappointed. The entire house needs cleaning, painting,and updating. I would never recommend this company again, and plan to ask for some reimbursement. Do not rent this house!
