Southern Vacation Rentals
Pool / Spa
Although I was there just 2 days for a wedding, this was a nice condo. Breezes were nice on the patio, and as advertised, there is not Gulf view. It's very tricky to find parking lot and as one would not expect, the code box is not close to the gate and can be missed. Plenty of storage space, unit was fairly clean (but I am a perfectionist) Property is immaculate. I am quite sure the owner relies on knowledge of repairs from the cleaning crew, and this is not a complaint, but kitchen faucet needs o rings, it leaks slightly, guest bathroom faucet also. But more important, the doorknob leading to patio from living room is quite loose and needs immediate attention. This is for the owner so that future renters are not inconvenienced and can be repaired at a time that is not on a weekend where emergency repair costs are higher. It has been a while since I used VRBO, and the fees has risen to almost unaffordable rates. Since space was scarce for the weekend, we were forced to use a company that added more fees. Such a shame that VRBO is not as simple as it used to be.
No amazing views, unless you enjoy watching a parking lot.
This is a VERY basic condo. It has everything you need but don't expect much. Needs updating for sure and the view is a sliver of ocean between two buildings. I guess I got what I paid for, as it was cheaper than most others I considered.
Thank you for this review Sharon. This property may not offer full beach views but it certainly has some additional perks, like being just a few steps from the beach! We hope to see you again in the future.

Would stay again.
Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you had a great experience. We hope that you come back next year for another memorable vacation!
It was ok
We had a good time in the area but ended our trip a day early and booked a hotel just to be able to get a good night’s rest for the drive back home. The bed in the master bedroom was so uncomfortable and broken down we didn’t rest well the whole time we were there. The tile floor was pretty but without any rugs it was impossible to keep sand at bay, with nothing but a broom and a tiny vacuum that didn’t suck up anything. The small rugs on the balcony have no backing, so when you step outside they slide and cause you to fall..twice...until you move them out of the way to avoid an injury. Other than the extremely uncomfortable bed, the filthy floors and trip hazards we were pleased with the area and the accommodations were adequate. We even found a pair of someone else’s shorts behind the dresser in the bedroom, and someone else’s empty chip bag under the sofa. The beach was amazing, and the pool was a lovely addition. All in all it was a decent trip, but wouldn’t stay here again.
Thank you for this review Holly. We did inspect the master bed and found it to be in good condition. We understand how important a good nights sleep is while you're on vacation and we apologize that you did not find the bed to be comfortable. All of the properties we manage are individually owned and furnished to the owner's comfort level. We have passed on your feedback about the property needing rug and we apologize about the few housekeeping items you experienced. We will be working with our housekeeping teams to make sure they are checking behind and underneath all of the furniture. We hope that you will think of us the next time you are in the Orange Beach area.

Despite that I was expecting to sit on the balcony and be "Gulf Front', we loved the facility! Clean, well stocked with dishes and cooking necessities and plenty of room for our family. Since the jelly fish decided to take over the beach we made made use of the pool and other things that were convenient to the location. You may want to have the dryer looked at. It never got hot and took 4 cycles to dry. I have this property saved and we will be back!
Thank you for your review and feedback. We are glad to hear you the best of experience. We did replace the dryer after your stay. We hope that you come back next year for another memorable vacation!
Great location, clean, good sleeping arrangements. Crowded living area, poor WiFi.
We really enjoyed the location, right on the beach and close to shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants. Very family friendly and the pool was refreshing and well maintained. The beach was beautiful and not overcrowded. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils but seating in the living area was limited, especially since the recliner was broken. WiFi for our unit was not working. We were able to connect to another units WiFi but the signal was not strong. The bedrooms were comfortable and large. Balcony was enjoyable with plenty of chairs for everyone tho a “partial gulf view” was a stretch. I’d like to get a waterfront view next time. Overall we enjoyed a very relaxing time at the beach and would stay at Summer Breeze again.
Thanks Nancy for the feedback! We apologize for responding so late, but missed this one. We definitely shared with management to correct areas of opportunity. Hope we can have you back!
