About

WINTER 2018 -2019 UPDATE: As promised, we continue to work on Sun Kissed West, always focusing on tasks geared towards our guests. This winter, we focused on several key areas:

CLEANLINESS – Removed the old carpet and installed new flooring in both bedrooms and in the half bath. Removed the metal louver doors and install new vinyl doors on the utility closet and installed a brand new 18 cu ft. refrigerator.

COMFORT – Installed a new King bed with a new mattress and a new armoire in the master bedroom. The lower profile toilet in the main bath was replaced with a taller 16” toilet. Added a new 50” TV in the main living room and relocated the spare TV into the master bedroom. Added a new rug for the floor in the living room and replaced both exterior windows on the north side of the house with new Hurricane Low E windows. Two new bean bag chairs have also been added to the house, plus a new larger ceiling fan .

PRIVACY - Removed the interior door between both sides of the house and replaced the privacy door on the main deck with a wall and doors that can be opened, if so desired. Also installed a small louver wall on the ground level to isolate the lower seating area between each duplex.

We will continue to keep you posted as we move forward with the renovation process!

In the past year, we have also: added new poly outdoor furniture, renovated the downstairs shower, installed new cabinet hardware and painted the interior of the home, installed new fans in the bedrooms, added a new full bed and new twin bunk beds, installed a higher more efficient toilet in the half bath, installed a new sleeper sofa as well as new dishes, pots and pans, quilts and draperies. We also added a brand new 10’ by 30’ exterior deck.

Beautiful Views

March 2019
, Sadieville, KY

Overall

I was looking for a quiet place to relax and have a restful vacation. This house was perfect, I was amazed that it was literally on the beach. It is in a more secluded area away from the busy tourist areas, but close enough if you did want to go do things. I loved opening the doors and listening to the ocean waves. The master bedroom was very comfortable and overlooks the ocean. We toured some of the historic forts, went to the Estuarium on Dauphin Island and toured the USS Alabama in Mobile. We also did a dolphin/eco boat tour (Cetacean Cruises) which was fun. This was my first time visiting Gulf Shores and I definitely plan to come back. This house is perfect for a couple or smaller family.

The size of the place was perfect for a family of four, but I'm not sure a larger family would've had enough room. There is not really a proper dining room table, and only 1 shower. Also, you can tell that the owners are still in the process of updating things. In a year or two, it will all be finished and will be top-notch! The place was VERY clean, and we are obsessed with Ft Morgan. The beach and wildlife are all breathtaking - we star gazed every night from the porch! The house is in a sweet neighborhood with sweet families - everybody was just playing with their kids and relaxing. No rowdy college kids, etc. The property management company was super easy to work with and we had no troubles at all with booking, paying, checking in or out. We would definitely go back to this property, we'd just be prepared to eat all of our meals picnic style!

We stayed in Relax on the Beach West and enjoyed every minute. It was the perfect location with a beautiful beach just steps away. The home was perfect for my family. The home was clean and the deck had amazing views. The staff are very quick to help with issues. (I couldn’t figure out the lock on the door and staff were there within minutes of notifying them.) There is not a dishwasher but we purchased paper plates to cut down on dishwashing. We would definitely come back!

We had a fantastic time!! I can't believe how close we were to the ocean, it made it so convenient. The deck was awesome,it was almost like being on the beach but without the sand - so close to the water! The space underneath was perfect if you wanted to be in the shade with a cool breeze blowing. The only thing it needs is ice trays and a dishwasher. I definitely plan to stay here again!

Manager's Response

Georgia, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on Sun Kissed West! We agree, there is nothing like being right on the beach. We will pass along your comments regarding ice trays and dishwasher to the owner. We hope to see you again soon!

We stayed in the middle of May. The house was really clean on the inside, but needs work on the outside.
There are a lot of exposed wires under the house and the Master bedroom’s balcony door and trim needs to be replaced. We were able to open the balcony door, but once opened, it couldn’t be shut. Because of that, the heat from the outside and the air conditioning made the vent swear in the bedroom and it would drip on you.
The location was perfect. There are not a lot of stairs and it’s right on the beach. There was kids sand toys, a little pool, and chairs to use.

The house was a little on the small size. There is no kitchen table. They left a vacuum to use, but it didn’t work well. There was a dust pan, but no broom, so we had to go buy a broom so we could manage the sand.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay mostly because of the location.

Manager's Response

Maggie, thanks so much for taking the time to provide feedback for your recent stay at Sun Kissed West. We are happy to hear that the home was clean and that you enjoyed the location! We've already forwarded your comments to our maintenance department and they check out the wire and the door.

I absolutely loved the location. It is so close to the water and the views are incredible. It is pretty far away from all the action of downtown so if you're looking for a place that is low key and private, this is it! The deck is amazing and the unit is cute and comfy. The beds are pretty high up so if you're vertically challenged or have mobility issues, it could be slightly difficult to get in and out comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked but make sure you read the information on towels if you have several people staying.

Manager's Response

Rebecca, we totally agree! We love Sun Kissed West and the location can't be beat. We look forward to your return visit!

First time visiting this area and we were not disappointed. We loved being a bit away from all of the touristy area. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking just about anything you wanted. BBQ grill also supplied. Can sit on your private deck, morning coffee and watch the dolphins. Unit is beach front and very peaceful. Unit and beach is also dog friendly which we sincerely appreciate. Unit is not pristine but as owner stated, it is a work in progress. I would recommend this rental. My husband and I were very satisfied. We had a few minor issues at check in and they were taken care of immediately.

Manager's Response

Sunkissed West is a great choice for smaller groups that prefer beachfront and we are happy to hear you agree! The owners take great pride in this home and it shows. As always, we are glad to hear that the dolphins cooperated and provided some early morning entertainment!

Enjoyed our week at the duplex. The unit was clean, beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped. Overall, the whole building needs repair work. The front door didn't close all the way and a constant onshore wind brought in sand and salt spray. The stairs need some lights. The bedroom door knob was hard to turn and open.

Manager's Response

We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your week at Sun Kissed West! The owners have been working diligently on this home and it shows! Thanks so much for the feedback and we'll pass it along. We hope to see you again soon!

Relax on the Beach was great!! Sun Kissed West/East however you can tell is one of the older houses. 1st impressions as we pulled up: Needs Painting outside. The wood that is "left over" from the deck remodel is piled up in the parking area on the west side. The bottom step is 1/2 broken of wish I discovered coming down unloading the vehicle when I stepped off and almost fell, so I took 2 pieces of left over 4x4 and made a make shift step for my stay. The back of the house has ALOT of rotten wood around the door frames and big picture windows complete with 1/4" gap (b/c wood is rotten). The deck is new and I spent most of my time there and on the beach. I loved the direct/private beach access most!!!!! The inside has been updated and is much nicer than expected. The painting in my opinion needs a second coat. Very cozy feel, and very clean which means the most. I want to be able to walk around barefoot and not have bugs. My critique may be because my other half is a handyman. I enjoyed my stay but my dog had more fun than anyone down there at the time chasing crabs. I would probably stay here again if we come back to this area. I gave 3 stars on property condition & cleanliness because outside vs inside. The inside is great, the outside needs work.

Manager's Response

You're right! Our home is definitely a work in progress, but it is coming along, as evidenced by you comments about the inside. As you can read from the latest update in the description, some of what you mentioned outside had already been addressed and we've got big things planned for later this fall, so stay tuned.

We really enjoyed sun kissed West. It was right on the beach, and each house has their own beach area. We setup a canopy and played all day every day. The house could use some updates, but for the money we were pleased. The 3 for cleanliness because under the house was full of scrap lumber from redoing the deck, and there was an abandoned refrigerator in front of the house. Nice neighborhood. Away from the busy high rise condos. Good place if you want to have calm relaxing family fun.

Manager's Response

So happy to hear you enjoyed Sun Kissed West! Wish we'd had time to remove the lumber before you checked in. Though the refrigerator does not belong to us, we're working to get it removed!

Very easy access to beach just out the door. The deck was wonderful. The rental was comfortable and clean, but clearly an older duplex. Beds were comfortable and view was outstanding. We love the dog friendly beach. An old rusty refrigerator was left behind the home on the beach. Needs to be removed.

Manager's Response

We're so glad you enjoyed the house and location and had a comfortable stay. (Your dog too!) We were not aware that someone had left a refrigerator on the beach. That's not something we usually check for! It is gone now.
