What a great vacation!! Our stay at Beach Retreat was amazing. The house was perfect plenty of room, short walk to the beach. Would definitely recommend for a family. Only one issue the oven wasn't working but a quick call to maintenance had it fixed within 24 hours.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for taking time to provide a review for Beach Retreat. We couldn't agree with you more about this house is spacious and very close to the beach. We regularly receive similar feedback for Beach Retreat. Also, we appreciate you reaching out to us so quickly to address the oven issue you had. It is always our goal for our guests to have a great experience.

We look forward to hosting you again for your next trip to Gulf Shores.

Our family had a great experience at the Beach Retreat. The house and neighborhood are just what we needed to get away to the beach without being around large crowds. At the house, we were just by ourselves. At the beach, we had plenty of space -- the closest we were to other families was 20-30 feet.

Manager's Response

Hi Jeff and Sara,

Thanks so much for taking time to provide a review for Beach Retreat. We are so glad to hear this property met and exceeded your expectations for your trip. We will definitely share this feedback with the owner and members of our staff.

We look forward to hosting you again when you return to Gulf Shores in the future.

All the best,

Our two largest complaints were the furnishings were well worn and the barbecue grill was falling apart. We did find a few dishes dirty in the cabinet. Otherwise a very nice property. The home was very spacious and comfortable.

Manager's Response

Hi Jeff and thank you for the feedback and we are happy to hear that you found Beach Retreat to be spacious and comfortable. Because we have limited time between guests, interior inspections of the cabinets are not possible. We do ask that guests wash dishes prior to leaving as a courtesy to the next guests and we are sorry that wasn't the case. We will pass you comment about the grill along the owner. It sounds as if it is time for a replacement.

The house was nice and clean. Need new sofa and mattresses. The outside need cleaning. Not just this house but the neighborhood. The house we stayed in carport had old shoes, that were torn up and other trash. The grill was on one leg and was scared to open.

Manager's Response

Hi Shovonne! It's wonderful to hear the house was nice and clean. That's always our goal We will make sure someone picks up any trash under the house and we will see about a replacement grill. Heritage Shores is a beautiful neighborhood and is normally very well maintained - it must have been an off week. We would love to see you again!

The home was very clean and better than expected. It was well stocked with all necessities and more. The only thing that was not available was an operable iron. The iron in the unit was corroded. The was to the beach was easy and you can even see a bit of the ocean from the front porch. We would definitely stay here again.

Manager's Response

Kevin, we are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Beach Retreat! Thanks for letting us know about the iron and we will arrange for a replacement. We hope to see you again soon!

Pretty house with great views and clean house. Mattresses were biggest negative and needed blackout drapes in master. No icemaker. Everything else about house, pools and tennis were great.

Manager's Response

Thanks for the feedback, Melody! It sounds like you had a great time at Beach Retreat. Our records indicate that there is an ice-maker (in the refrigerator) so we will have maintenance check that out and we will pass along your recommendation regarding black out curtains to the owner.

I want to thank the staff of Relax On the Beach!! They were incredibly kind to us. I loved the beautiful decorating and the large family room. The beds were all nice. There were 6 adults and 1 child, and the space was perfect. It was only a very short walk to the beach, and there it was clean, white sand! I would love to stay here every year!!

Manager's Response

Donna, thank you so much for the kind words and for the positive review! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at Beach Retreat and we look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Awesome! I hope your grandchildren loved their first trip to the beach. And hope there will be many more beach trips in their future!

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at the Beach Retreat. It was spacious, clean, and well equipped. The beach is a short walk (you pass about 6 houses, then youre there). The sand is so white and soft! Its not very crowded and was family friendly. We especially liked how we could leave our wagon of sand toys, chairs, & umbrella in the covered area under the house and be ready to go to the beach each time. The outdoor shower was also nice to rinse off the sand before heading inside. There are also two swimming pools for use just about 2-3 houses away. The temperature was great and I loved that they werent crowded as well. The owners were great and very responsive. My only suggestion would be if the owners kept a sand wagon and a couple of beach chairs available for use as they take up a lot of space in the car when youre traveling with children. Thank you for the wonderful memories!

Manager's Response

We are so pleased to hear that your vacation was wonderful! Please come back and Relax on the Beach again soon!
