About Keith Ward

Surfing, golfing, and fishing are my main passions and all three are close by!

Why Keith Ward chose Daphne

Being right on the water would be ideal, but for the price this home will save you a lot of money you can use to do other things close by, and still get to the beach within an hour or the bay in five minutes!

Nice place, although high maintaince owner

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to the area. Cute, cozy, and beautifully decorated, well maintained house. Easy accessible in subdivision from the main highway. Wonderful sitting area in rear with large fenced yard, although the rear neighbor dogs a bit annoying having two of our own with us. Great little beagle next door though. Although listed as pet friendly, probably better for retired folks without dogs, as owner has many rules and regulations regarding pets. A misunderstanding between old instructions on the Fridge and the bedding stripping instructions included in their welcome letter cost us part of our deposit, but understand the Fridge instructions will be updated for future renters. Us Yanks also saw several roaches in rear of house, but are told it is impossible to keep all the bugs out living in the Deep South. Guess that could be true, as was difficult not to track dead leaves into house from sitting area in back. Recommend Gambino's Italian Restaurant in nearby Fairhope for a great evening dinner choice. Would consider this rental again, but when we don't have pets.

Owner's Response: These were very nice guests to have in your home for those of you who may be hosts reading this review. Very clean and took care of our home. I'm sorry they saw the rules regarding dogs being brought with them as over bearing. These rules are in place for those renters who must bring their pets on vacation with them, and also for future guests coming in after them. I would not want to check into a home and find dog hair all over the blankets, sheets, and pillow cases. So the rule about not allowing your dogs on the furniture and beds is for the courtesy of the next guests staying there. The extra cleaning fees to have all the hair removed from the bedding (if that were possible) is more expensive than just replacing them, and we do not use cheap sheets. Stripping the beds is not what cost them part of their security deposit to be used for the replacement. Only one bed was covered with dog hair but when you mix clean sheets with hair covered sheets then both sets have to be replaced because of the transfer of hair. That is why we ask guests to not strip the bedding when they check out. We have a very good cleaning crew that watches for these kind of things and are grateful for that. The main reason for even replying to this review is for those of you who will be traveling with your dogs in the future and think it will be OK for the dogs to get on the beds and furniture since you do it in your own home. You may be OK with sleeping in your own dogs hair but I can assure you that no one else is !

Cute, clean comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My husband had a temporary job in the Mobile area, so we rented this house for 2 weeks. It is an older house but has been adequately renovated and is furnished nicely. It has a cute, colorful beach theme. The beds were very comfortable. It was very clean and cozy. It's located right off the main highway that goes through town in a quiet, older neighborhood, very close to shopping, restaurants, and grocery stores. Also, the owner (Keith) is very helpful and responsive. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if back in the area.

A lovely home with great beds close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

A great home that is very comfortable. We cook when we travel and this home has a well stocked kitchen. One of our party has back issues and travels with his own air bed but did not even needed it as he found the bed wonderful.

Too far from attractions.

  • 3 of 5

The house was nice but the air conditioner is set on a timer and at night it goes up to 75 degrees and we were so uncomfortable at night. It does it throughout the day and therefore if your at the house it gets a little warm as well. The house is not close to any attractions. So we had to travel to do anything. The air was the biggest disappointment. We're from Louisiana and we need air condition

Owner's Response: We are really sorry about the misunderstanding with the AC. All guests are given an explanation about how the thermostat works and their ability to set the temperature to what is comfortable for them while at the same time helping us to keep our costs down on electricity and our rental rates. Many guests are too busy going and doing while on vacation to think about the thermostat settings so this helps when they are away from the home and have left it on the lowest setting. As for the location and no attractions I could fill this page with things to do and see close by. The location of the home is mapped out on the listing so that would be something to consider before renting.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. It was a perfect location...close enough to everything but still had a little town feel. We will definitely book again if ever in the area.
