About Rhonda Parker

We have lived in Ellisville, MS our entire 33 years of marriage. We own 3 Snap-On Tool franchises that service our surrounding area, Meridian, and Mobile. We bought a family vacation home in 2011 in Gulf Shores. Our family has enjoyed the beaches, the shopping, and Waterville USA. We decided to purchase a rental property after being asked time and time again if we rent our vacation home. Gulf Shores is our favorite spot because of the location and family atmosphere. We enjoy Gulf Shores and we want you to also.

Rhonda Parker purchased this villa in 2013

Wonderful & Effortless Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six comfortably stayed here for 4 nights. The spacious kitchen made cooking easy. Also having 3 bathrooms was great. Property was clean & well maintained. Rhoda promptly responded to my questions and provided great recommendations for food & entertainment. Location is right across from the beach & a short drive to several restaurants. We enjoyed the beach and pool on a daily basis. We also loved visiting the pier (about a 10-15 min drive), the view was amazing. I would highly recommend this property.

Terrible experience, ruined our 1x year vaca!

  • 1 of 5

The owners were nice and refunded one day. A/C does not cool the upstairs at all, we were so uncomfortable everyone slept downstairs. A/C was replaced last year but the unit is not sufficient. A/C guy lives in same community and said the same thing. Very hot and uncomfortable. Have to walk about a half mile down a main street to get beach access and the pool furniture was broken, the patio chairs on the deck broken.... beware.

Owner's Response: We have since corrected the a/c issue. The public beach access is 2/10 mile as stated in our listing. The pool furniture will addressed at the annual home owners association meeting. Since we have been made aware of the broken patio furniture, it will be replaced. It is our desire to offer a pleasant and comfortable stay.

Perfect spot for our needs

We came down for the hangout festival and enjoyed the location. The proximity to the shuttle bus and ability to walk to the beach was great. Thank you Rhonda.

We had four kids and two adults staying in the condo and had plenty of room! Very spacious! Loved the fact we could walk to the beach within minutes and the pool was a big hit as well!! Definitely going back and would recommend this condo, you will not be disappointed!!

Because of the convenience of many restaurants, shops, and activities, Gulf Shores will make the perfect getaway for your family. Evening Tide is an easy stroll across a two lane road to the sugar sand beach or just 1/10 of a mile walk to the playful waters of the Lagoon Pass.
