About Ron and Dana

We have been married for 18 wonderful years! I am very blessed to have married my best friend!!! We enjoy lots of outdoor activities and staying active!! When Ron isn't golfing and I'm not playing tennis.....you will find us at the beach!!!! We have 3 rescue 'fur babies' that go everywhere we do! I wouldn't want to vacation without them and that's why we offer a pet friendly vacation home!

Ron and Dana purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Ron and Dana chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We fell in love with this house and everything it has to offer! It has the most beautiful, panoramic, unobstructed views of the sandy white beach and Gulf of Mexico!! It is very spacious and i love offering the option to rent both sides out as one house for large families and groups at an affordable rate!!

What makes this cottage unique

Rent one side or two....for a million dollar view....it's up to you!!!!

Just not for us

  • 2 of 5

The cottage was very nice but we only stayed less than 24hours of our 4 night stay. Upon arrival the home had a very pleasant fragrant smell as if recently sprayed. Our dog immediately started rolling on the carpet over and over but didn't think much about it. We left to go eat dinner and took our dog along with us. Upon returning she started the rolling again an I got down and tried to see or smell what was on the carpet as no pet stains were showing. I did find that strong urine was embedded in the carpet and our dog now had that smell as well. The next morning we got up, called trying to find a place to get dog washed and found a place in Pensacola. The next morning we fixed our coffee and went outside to enjoy morning coffee and ocean views. There was construction going on two doors down so very noisy with hammering and sawing. I know if is off season while we were there and that is when construction does have to take place. The duplex side across from us was having some renovations done as well and we could hear the sounds of the renovations from the deck. Could not hear them from inside but we came to spend a quiet time away from noise we had at home and spend it outside not inside.This was no fault of owners at all. But is was not what we had wanted for ourselves. We made the decision to look for something else when we took our dog to get washed. At that time we packed up and left. I notified the owner that we had left around 11:00 and decided that the cottage was not for us due to the urine smell and the distraction of construction. I did ask if they felt some sort of a refund /partial could be considered. That was not received very well at all.....a defensive attitude assured me we had made the right decision to just walk away. I was told the place had just been painted and new appliances added, and carpets cleaned. I did say the carpets looked clean but had embedded urine causing it to have odor and the construction was a distraction and her reply was, "well what would you have done if I had rented to children next to you." I felt that was an inappropriate response . i have not heard a word and won't I am sure.

A great place for a family but not really for a "couple get-away place "to relax and just enjoy being out in the sun on the deck , sunning, reading, etc.

The place is nice, the view is nice, and it was clean. It was Just Not For Us.

Had a Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and nice view of the Gulf. We did have a few appliance issues but the owners responded quickly and had someone out to review and fix them. All in all a nice place to stay and relax. It is a bit of a walk to the beach but that's what we mostly did when we got to the beach any way. We were pleased by the porch setup being separate from the stairs allowing our dog and grandson to enjoy the outdoors while being moderately safe.

Money Well Spent

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. House had everything we needed, and Dana was great throughout the process. We had five adults and six kids and had plenty of space, dishes, etc. Will definitely be back.

Enjoy viewing dophins and early morning coffee from the deck!

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival I found the 4 bdrm. 3 1/2 bath unit clean and ready to go. Soap and paper products are minimal If you are there longer than 2 or 3 days you need to take your own. Also take a few extra large garbage bags for clean-up. The beds were comfortable and bedroom set up worked well for our group of 4 adults and 2 toddlers. We ended up with an unused bedroom on this trip. Our family came from 3 different states to gather for a long family weekend. Kitchen is well stocked with cooking apparatus as well as utensils and china. At first I was concerned at the distance the unit was from the central part of Gulf Shores but our ending viewpoint was the privacy was wonderful. The beach is clean and was very private. The few neighbors we met were friendly and helpful. Sassy Bass is within a mile of the property where we could either go out to eat, shop or pick up a nice bottle of wine. One night they created a "steam pot" for us that we took back to the unit to cook.......fun! The walk to the beach was within the capability of our entire group from toddler to grandmother. The couple of times we wanted to go into the central part of town we were there within 10 minutes. The owners were very responsive to work with. We appreciated that very much. We plan to make Gulf Shores an annual early fall trek for our family for as long as possible and we would choose stay here again.

Gracious owners but the property needs some work

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a far walk to the beach (tough for older guests but fine for the kids) but a gorgeous view. The sleeping arrangements are great and plenty of bathrooms. However, as is the case with many beach rentals, there is sleeping for 10-12 but the cookware doesn't allow for that number - no large skillets, pots or baking dishes, just average size ones. The living space is tight with that many in the house. When it rains you feel very cramped and when you stay this far down the beach you usually don't go out as much. We had an issue with the cable that could not be resolved by the cable company that weekend which is unfortunate but it seems as though someone disconnected things and didn't get reconnected properly as the modem for wireless had to be reset twice as well. The cleaning service had removed blind but did not get all of them put back up. It also has TV's in each bedroom but they do not have cable boxes and only receive one channel. They should either be connected to the cable or not available as the satellite only got ABC in one bedroom. We had a maintenance issue that did get properly compensated for by the owners with a credit, however it was not the first time this has happened so they should likely consider repairs in the off season and updating before the spring.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear the guest enjoyed their stay but I wish she would have been honest in her review. The only issue this guest had with the cable was that the 'Guide" would not show up on the tv. The cable company had just turned to all digital and apparently thousands of customers were experiencing this issue. We tried to get cable out to fix immediately but because of the heavy workload to fix this issue, they could not come out until after this guest checked out. We asked them to download the channel guide so they wouldn't be inconvienanced. As far as the bedrooms not having cable and only getting one channel....nothing could be further from the truth. Every bedroom has a digital cable box and receives all cable channels. I've never heard of any tv only receiving 'one' channel. When I asked the cable company if it was possible that this guest could have experienced only having 'one' channel in the bedrooms, he assured me it was not possible. We have an amazing maintenance crew and this house has monthly scheduled maintenance service. You can not own a beach house, that consistently receives great reviews if you are not on top of every issue that may arise. I was completely blown away when she said there isn't enough cookware! I had just purchased a brand new set of cookware, baking pans, pizza pan, spatulas and oven mitts. This guest was the very 1st guest to use them as I personally put them in the house the day she was checking in. If there was anything, specifically, she needed but wasn't there, she never contacted me about it. It's unfortunate that a guest is allowed to be so untruthful when leaving a review. Please read our other reviews from all our properties, we consistently receive 5 stars! We have many returning guest to this property because of the location, its spaciousness and our unbeatable customer service. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me, I am always available to answer your questions.
