About Rachel Harper
We have privately owned the condo for a few years. We are a small family and we only want to share our little piece of fun with others.
Rachel Harper purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Rachel Harper chose Orange Beach
This property is not only a wonderful vacation property but the area and local people are the best you will find anywhere in the world. When you come and stay not only do you feel at home with Orange beach and all of the people but you will feel at home in this condo.
What makes this Condo unique
The balcony views and accessibility to all of the amenities makes this place a gem. From the downstairs waterpark and movie theater to the selection of restaurants within walking distance of this condo can not be beat.

The location is great with easy access to the Oasis pool and lazy river. Great light show each evening. Probably would be good to include a statement to the renters to protect the access code to get into the buildings while not letting others follow them into the building. This happened while I was seated in the foyer on the 1st floor. I watched a group of 4 teenagers try to get in the door, when another group of kids came up and entered their code to come in , the random kids slipped in behind the ones that were obviously staying at The Wharf. I questioned the ones that slipped in and they were not able to give me a condo number. While standing there, there were others pulling on the door. I told them it requires a code to enter and you have to be a renter or owner. I felt a little un-safe with kids entering as they did.
Thanks for the words of advice. The HOA has on site security and a guard can be called to escort any unwanted people out of the premises. Unfortunately, there are dishonest people everywhere and this could happen in any gated/coded community. We all have to help and police the grounds. There are hundreds of units and the codes are changed frequently to prevent this from happening. Thanks for taking your time to review the property.
This place is perfect for a concert at the wharf. Good restaurants and lots of things to do.
Loved the condo, very roomy for 10 people. Great views!!
Perfect Location at the Warf
Condo was very spacious with large exterior porch facing the water. Right in the middle of the action - great for adults and kids. We all enjoyed our stay.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our property. We extremely enjoyed hosting you and your family. Georgia was a wonderful guest and would love to host her and her family ANYTIME! The condo was as clean when they left as when they arrived. Have a great rest of the summer.
DO NOT RENT THIS UNIT!!! Unkept, Filthy Dirty, Spiders, Rivals Section 8 Housing! Disgusting!
DO NOT RENT FROM RACHEL HARPER or this Property!!! We rented this unit to attend the Jason Aldean Concert Thursday, 07/26 for a 2 night stay. We were horrified at the conditions of the unit. Not only was it in poor overall condition, it was filthy beyond belief. The counter tops were clearly dirty, the carpets were stain ridden, there were holes in the walls, the patio was disgusting and in desperate need of pressure washing, the outdoor furniture looked like something you would find on the side of the road or in a dumper, the inside of the grill was covered in aluminum foil in a sad attempt to disguise the nastiness, the faucets, lighting fixtures, tubs, showers were covered in a thick layer of dust and buildup indicating this unit had not been cleaned in a very long time. The most disturbing was the spiders in one of the beds!! There was a note on the kitchen counter stating do not strip beds upon departure. My family and I travel a significant amount, I have never seen a note of this sort. A clear indication sheets are not washed between guests. The photos listed on the listing via VRBO and HomeAway are many, many years old. The condo is in poor overall condition besides beginning filthy. I wish I was able to post pictures with this review for future renters to view.
We went to dinner, went to the concert, somehow manage to sleep there Thursday night and left first thing Friday morning. I messaged the owner immediately upon our departure. She called my husband while driving and he told her he didn’t want to talk while driving. She stated this rental income is an income they depend on. Well, if that is the case, she should definitely make sure her unit is at the minimum CLEAN! For the amount of money we paid to stay in this deplorable unit, we could have stayed at the Ritz Carlton. Instead, we rented a unit that rivaled Section 8 Housing.
I filled a complaint with HomeAway. To my dismay, they can offer no help in regards to a refund. They can only keep complaints on file and after a number of complaints they will remove the listing from their website.
I would hate for others to have this experience. Thankfully, we did not bring our children on this trip. If a future renter brings their children or a family member who is medically fragile to this unit, the outcome would not be a good one. PLEASE SPARE YOURSELF THIS EXPERIENCE and rent from another owner!!
We would like to encourage any future or past renters to reach out to us personally and request any current videos of the condo and videos immediately after this guests departure, as we have both. We were unable to make this guest happy even through direct contact and emails. However, we would like for you to read our other reviews immediately prior to this stay. Please don’t hesitate to ask for any pictures/videos/information regarding this review from us as we are happy to disclose this information. We do strive to make our renters happy although it proved to be impossible in this certain case.
All activities and attractions are with a 10 mile distance of the condominium. Otherwise they are downstairs. None of the activities are included in the price of the rental. The condo does come with access to washer/dryer in unit, also a fitness center and water park downstairs.
