We really enjoyed our stay at Paradise West and we loved the pool, as well as all the bathrooms and bedrooms. We never had any issues with the house. The only issue was the fact that I had asked the rental company a question and they never got back to me with an answer. But it wasn’t anything that affected our stay. My group consisted of five retired government workers and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Manager's Response

We’re so happy you enjoyed Paradise West! Not sure why our staff was unable to get back in touch with you, but thanks for the excellent review. We hope to see you again soon!

The location was quiet, but not too far away from stores. The furniture in the house could be updated (couches had leather peeling) We did enjoy the pool and the balconies! We would rent it again :)

Manager's Response

So glad you enjoyed! We'll encourage the owner to spiff up the furniture during the off-season. We'll look forward to seeing you again!

Paradise West is a nice home. It could use some upgrades. The refrigerator needs servicing or replacing. The freezer side with the ice maker makes hollow ice and it is very slow to make ice. The refrigerator side cools but not well. The kitchen could use better serving utensils. There was only two serving spoons and they were plastic and one was melted. The mattress in the master bedroom needs replacing. It is hard and there is a hump in the middle of the mattress from people laying on the the left and right side creating it. We decided to rotate the mattress so the biggest part of the hump was at the foot of the bed. At least two of the other bedrooms could use a new mattress as well unless you like really firm mattresses then they are fine. Do not expect pillow tops. They do need to change out the face towels. They have become really thin. It tells you when you book they don't provide an iron but come on something as simple as an iron should be provided. The home is located close to restaurants and walmart. The beach is very close. The AC works great and the salt water swimming pool was awesome. All in all it is a very nice home just needs some upgrades.

Manager's Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. We will pass your comments along to the owner. We do agree, it is a very nice home!

We have had a superior vacation experience. No major issues. Prompt responses to any request. Comfortable beds, good AC, adequate towels, kitchen items, etc. We had major issues with our reservation (no fault of ROTB) and our agent, Tina, was more than we could have asked for. Thank you, Tina, for your faithful diligence on our behalf!

Manager's Response

Thanks so much. We're so glad to hear about your superior experience at Paradise West. Happy to be able to help.

We loved our stay. Plenty of room for our large family of 13. You can get out of the pool, grab your rod and reel and fish from the dock. Short walk to the beach. Everything was clean and well maintained. The dishwasher broke down and they immediately came to try and service it. It was shot, but they told us they would have a new one installed the next day. We went to the beach and when we returned the new dishwasher was in! We have no complaints at all. We definitely have this house on our list for our next family vacation.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed our home and that we were able to take care of that dishwasher quickly for you. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

The condo inside isnt a concern,the dryer did not dry clothes at all.The pool, the pool chairs and pool area are in need of attention. We spent our own money and bought chemicals to treat the pool, because it was so dirty and green! This was after both people in the duplexes called and complained!

3 Family spring break with kids. We had plenty of room for all to sleep. We really enjoyed being on the lagoon. Short walk to the beach. Kitchenware adequate. We had enough pots, pans and silverware. I know the newer owners are working to improve this property and hope that continues. Agree the furniture is too large in living/dining room. Cannot get around the dining table as it and chairs are also too large. Pool was good, not a problem being shared as the family next door were friendly. Still needs a little TLC but they are working on it. Good overall stay.

Went for 4 nights with the entire family (parents, in laws, grandparents, and aunt and uncle)house was big enough so each family had their own space yet we were all together. Close walk to the beach. Dock was great - all the men of the family enjoyed fishing. The pool was great also. Wish would have looked closer to realize it was a shared pool. But that was probably error on part didn't realize house was duplex. Not an issue when we were there but could see where it could be if next door guests were loud.

House was clean and well maintained. Only issue we experienced was the dryer did not work. It would run but not heat. It was Saturday of our stay when we realized this so we just reported upon checkout Sunday.

Would definitely recommend this place and hope to stay here again next year on family vacation.

Manager's Response

Family is so important. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. The maintenance issue is handled. Thank you for the heads up!

The location was perfect. The house could use a few minor renovations. The pool got very dirty by the end of the week and had no skimmer. Someone should come check it during the stay. The lights on the pier did not work. Most of the tvs did not work correctly and their were tons of remotes everywhere. The furniture is way oversized for the rooms downstairs. We enjoyed our stay overall.

Manager's Response

The storms at the end of May knocked out a lot of the cable on the island and it's taken a while to get everyone up and running again. Thanks for the skimmer suggestion. We'll look into it!

The unit overall was in decent shape, nothing too bad to ruin the week. First, on the kitchen side, there really wasn't too many good sized pots or pans to be able to cook food for more than 3 people at a time. And in a house that sleeps 14, there need to be bigger pots and pans. Also, there were only 2 forks and 3 spoons in the whole unit.

Second, on the technology side, there were no batteries for any of the remotes on the bottom floor and two remotes at each tv that didn't work for anything. In the master suite, the TV was unplugged and the cord was too short to be plugged in at firsts and needed to be moved to work. And, while the neighbors had a 40" flat screen tv in their living room, we had a 20" projection tv that had to be 15 years old. House in need of a little bit of TLC to make it a perfect stay.

Thirdly, when we first got the rental property none of the doors were lock and there was garbage on one of the back balconies. This made me a little suspicious because our neighbors had already checked in.

Overall, this would be a nice place for a group of spring breakers that just want to hang out at the pool or beach all day. The bars are too far away to walk to, and with no uber and lyfts, taxis can get expensive. I would not recommend this place to a family but for spring breakers like us, it worked just fine.

Manager's Response

We're glad you had fun at the beach. Paradise West was very busy for college spring break this year, and it had taken a bit of a beating before your arrival, but we thank you for being a good sport, and for taking the time to write your review. We're in the process of doing upgrades, so all of your issues are being addressed. Thank you again!

We had 14 people stay in the rental for the week. The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms was wonderful. All bedrooms had a balcony which was very nice. Nice location, just a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed having the pool. The 2nd floor tends to be very warm compared to first and third levels. The rental itself needs a good deep cleaning. There was trash under beds, under couches, behind dressers from previous renters. The only other issue we encountered was with the adjoining rental. They had well over the amount of people staying there that they should have had. Made for very crowded pool at times. I will say though the noise from the adjoining rental was not excessive by any means.

Fun at Gulf Shores.

Our stay was very enjoyable. We had some problems with the AC on the middle level, and the maintenance people called us but never came while we were there. I was surprised to be sharing building, it was not listed as a duplex. It would also be helpful if the property would supply a broom. Loved restaurants.

The review of this property may read like a mixed bag. That's because I feel that is exactly what the property displayed. There are some very nice things about the property. The pier to the lagoon and the swimming pool were wonderful. The location is fabulous. The accommodations inside the property is where they need to put some work. I realize it's a beach vacation and generally you are going to be out and about but the appliances, electronics, and furniture need to be replaced. The cleaning services did not do a good job at all. There was sand and glitter throughout the inside, and we found a condom on the ground outside the rear stairway. Overall this property is fine, I would not likely return.

Overall, we loved the location, pool, dock, and we loved Gulf Shores! The pool was awesome and I had to email the company about a cabinet door and a couple of items to repair, they were very prompt and the maintenance guys were awesome! The only issue I had was the advertisement to the house was misleading, In no section, did it state that this was a duplex, we thought we were renting a single family home. One section says shared pool and the other says private pool. We had a large group, and so did the family next door. So we would not have rented this particular house, had we known it was a shared pool. I think the add needs to have more specifics. We loved the Relax on the Beach website and the way you set up the rental etc, but the add needs to have these items added. We would definitely rent from Relax on the Beach again, I will just call and get more details on the home, before we make the reservation. Overall our family vacation was Awesome!

I very much enjoyed my stay at Paradise West. While it is not located directly on the beach, it is only a short walk and the boat dock is a great addition to the property that you would not be able to get with a house on the beach.

Overall our stay was great! House was big enough for our large party. A couple of thoughts.. The TV in the living room must be at least 10 years old and very small. Watching the Alabama game was a struggle! The other thing I would suggest would be more eating utensils. Since this house sleeps 14, it would be nice if everyone could eat at the same time without washing and re-using utensils. We would definitely stay there again!

Manager's Response

Glad you had a great stay. We'll talk with the owner about updating the TV and will restock the kitchen!

For the amount of money we spent on the rental, it should have better upkeep. .more silverware (there were only 7 forks) and at least salt and pepper, or some seasonings, there was nothing. the pool was nice and clean, the barbecue grill was full of used charcoal and was falling apart.

Overall we had a great trip...however, we were less than satisfied with the conditions of the rental when we arrived. The house was not clean by any standards. We understand that this is a rental and a lot of people come in and out of the door.... BUT... A simple vacuum and broom would have mad a world of difference. The walls had prints on them, the carpets weren't vacuumed, tile not swept, we found sand in our beds and pillows were shredded. The company was quick to send someone over to fix our concerns. They were very polite about having to come over. However, we had already hand mopped the kitchen cabinets, banisters and tile because they were gross. I was surprised to see the cleaning company did not use a broom... I'm sorry but no matter how good the vacuum is you are not going to get all the sand off of tile with a vacuum. Again though we had a great time, they just need to clean up the property very well and get a better cleaning company for between guests. I would recommend this to people but would tell them to call someone if it's not clean.
