Guest review November 2015: The Whale of a Time house was perfect for our family. The layout was great, and the big picture windows in the den gave us a wonderful view 24 hrs a day. We will be coming back.

Review: We had a great time & would definitely stay here again! One thing you may want to know prior to arriving, you have to walk through a bedroom to get to the bedroom with the double beds. It wasn’t a problem.

Review: 5 star. The property was very spacious and comfortable. Very clean and well maintained on the inside.

Review: 5 star. Great beach vacation! House was clean and they let us have our dogs! Gulf Shores rental was friendly.

Review: It was clean and had plenty of room with a great view! Love the beach! The staff at Gulf Shores Rentals were very nice and we had no problems with our stay. The house was great, we spent lot of time on the back porch. We were very grateful they allowed us to have our dogs! Great vaca!

Although we loved the location and the house was the perfect size for our group, it definitely needs some major maintenance upgrades. The wood deck has loose pickets and exposed rusty screws. The paint has worn off and there were rust stains all over. The soffit had been blown out in a couple of corners. The electrical wiring inside was a bit suspect as lights came on and off as people walked by. The sliding door to the hallway bathroom would not allow someone to get out without assistance from the hallway. The master bedroom bath didn't even have a door. The shower in the middle bedroom (sponge bob) was clogged and backed up during the first shower. The grill outside was very dirty and forced us to buy a new one to grill. The kitchen had very limited kitchen utensils and cooking items. Some of the furniture on the deck was broken.

Wonderful location

The location and cleanliness of this home was very good and we had a wonderful time in Gulf Shores. The outside deck and ramp had many loose boards and needed some major attention.

In the nick of time

Our vacation was great other than everything closing bc of the Corona virus. We were able to to enjoy how close the beach was and all the space. We only came with our family bc the other family could not come. We found out the house was open an extra night but Gulf Shore rentals would only give it to us for the same price and with only us we could not afford that. They did **** the beach down on our last night so I’m glad they did not give us a discount. I would not go back to that house bc of Gulf Shore rentals. They were nice but all they want is money and not concerned about people.
