About Rhonda Parker

We have lived in Ellisville, MS our entire 33 years of marriage. We own 3 Snap-On Tool franchises that service our surrounding area, Meridian, and Mobile. We bought a family vacation home in 2011 in Gulf Shores. Our family has enjoyed the beaches, the shopping, and Waterville USA. We decided to purchase a rental property after being asked time and time again if we rent our vacation home. Gulf Shores is our favorite spot because of the location and family atmosphere. We enjoy Gulf Shores and we want you to also.

Rhonda Parker purchased this villa in 2013

Good location. Nicely decorated.

  • 2 of 5

Condo was poorly stocked for the kitchen. Only two coffee cups and one was chipped. No baking/microwave dishes.

Only a couple drinking glasses.

Condo floors were very dirty. Pulled the couch out and found food crumbs and melted taffy candy, along with four hangers and dirty plastic bags. The front of refrigerator was dirty and I had to get a Mr. Clean eraser to get the build up off. Walls were dirty. The furnace room was filthy and the dirt buildup in the slats of the door were nasty.

Only one decent dish cloth and one kitchen towel.

The laundry room walls were dirty from the old mops that were there.

The cleaning lady came and mopped the floors with the same old dirty mops, maybe she brought a new one with her??

I was very disappointed and let the owners know. They live a couple hours away so we waited until the next weekend to drop off some glasses, which were dirty and two new glass baking dishes.

First of all, I didn’t expect to go and clean the condo and then purchase some cups and towels for the kitchen. The furnace room never was cleaned as they did not have a shop vacuum. The vac they did have did not have attachments.

Also we questioned why there wasn’t a grill to use. The owner texted us back saying it was against the housing complex to have a grill. Funny cause there were at least 6 grills seen by the other seven condo. Not to mention there was a sentence in the condo rules stating that if using a grill make sure it’s far enough away from the building!

So that being said I would never rent from these owners again.

We did meet several neighbors and they were very kind and fun to visit with!

Owner's Response: We tried tried to meet the issues by sending our housekeeper back to clean and by providing the supplies as quickly as possible. Grills can not be used by renters only by owners. Rhonda

Great property in a quieter part of town!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfectly clean, in a great location, and had everything that we needed for a wonderful stay. Great little pool and even some great neighbors we met while there. Would love to visit again - thank you Rhonda for allowing us to enjoy your getaway.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with 4 adults and 5 kids. There was plenty of space and sleeping areas for all of us. Getting to the beach was easy. Great working with Rhonda and will definitely be back!

Wonderful & Effortless Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six comfortably stayed here for 4 nights. The spacious kitchen made cooking easy. Also having 3 bathrooms was great. Property was clean & well maintained. Rhoda promptly responded to my questions and provided great recommendations for food & entertainment. Location is right across from the beach & a short drive to several restaurants. We enjoyed the beach and pool on a daily basis. We also loved visiting the pier (about a 10-15 min drive), the view was amazing. I would highly recommend this property.

Gulf Shores is a family vacation spot, which has been listed as a top family beach getaway in Parents Magazine and Southern Living. Because of the convenience of many restaurants, shops, and activities, Gulf Shores will make the perfect getaway for your family. Evening Tide is an easy stroll across a two lane road to the sugar sand beach or just 1/10 of a mile walk to the playful waters of the Lagoon Pass. You can fill your days with golf, dolphin and fishing charters, or waterpark fun at Waterville USA, so ultimately the choice is yours!
