average rating of 4.75 based on 12 reviews

Very nice. Great view of the Gulf and sand dunes from our balacony.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Summer Salt West #4. House was beautiful. Lots of room for the family (10 of us). The bunk room beds were very comfortable. The 2 Kings & queen were ok. Some of the adults ended up sleeping in the bunk room with the kids.

Living area very spacious. Dinning table sat 8, kitchen island had 6 bar stools.

Unit 3 & 4 set at an angle, so the view of the Gulf & Sand Dunes are what you see when looking out the front windows and when sitting on the balcony.

Our only complaint (and it was not bad) the pictures on this site show that the swimming pool is right as you come out of the unit. It is that way for units 1 & 2, but units 3 & 4. Units 3 & 4 are behind units 1 & 2, so the kids needed to put shoes on to walk across the gravel parking lot to the pool.

Beautiful beach. Easy access to the beach. Water hose to rinse off when you come in from the beach.

We would love to come back and stay again.

A beautiful home -We loved our stay here!

  • 4 of 5

We traveled for Spring Break, March 2017. We were so excited to come to Orange Beach for our first time. We traveled with 3 families-14 of us. We arrived earlier than check-in time. We asked for an earlier check-in and the owners were willing to let us check in early. However, after several phone calls back and forth, at 3:00 we learned the people in the unit were not leaving. They had overbooked by one night. The owners were willing to work with us, but it took some time to get all of us settled into a big enough place close to the unit. They found us a different beach house that was an older home, but it was huge! It was right down the beach. We stayed for one night. They refunded us our night stay for the mix-up. We really enjoyed our stay after that. They reserved chairs on the beach for us, and that was a nice accommodation. The beach is awesome, water is beautiful, and the location is even better. There is a WalMart across the way and plenty of shopping and dining in the area. We would definitely recommend this place and would definitely come back!! Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a fantastic vacation!!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house, while slightly hidden from the main road, is in such a great location!! We had close access to the beach and pool, which were not crowded - even on Labor Day weekend! The private beach area we had was awesome because you could see how crowded the beach next to us was in front of the high rise condos. We also loved the way the house was decorated and how much space we had even with a full house of women!

If we had an issue, and there were a few, we were able to get in touch with someone to help us out, which is good! They came to plunge a toilet that had been stopped up and fixed an issue with the front door. We would definitely stay there again! Loved our getaway.

Felt like we were camping inside a nice house

  • 3 of 5

We were excited about this place based off the pictures. Location is good and you can see the beach, but you are behind two other buildings and do have to walk to the pool and then over a board walk to get to the beach. No problem but we wish we had been able to sit on our patio and watch our kids at the pool.

UPSTAIRS/BEDROOMS: I am an Interior Designer and I will say that the finish out of this place is beautiful. All the walls are shiplap and the fixed finishes well done. However, the beds are terribly uncomfortable and had very cheap mattresses. We had very thin bedding (one sheet and a thin coverlet) and only one extra blanket per room. The bunk beds were way more comfortable than all the adult beds by far. However three of the bunk beds were covered in ANTS when we pulled the sheets back the first night!! We had to have two kids sleeping in two of the beds for the first two days until the problem was fixed. Each bathroom had 4 bath towels and 4 washcloths. There needed to be more in our opinion. Also, you have to bring your own TOILET PAPER and HAND SOAP. Really? That couldn't be included in the price you are paying for the week? Also, whoever cleans this place is seriously missing the baseboards (they were covered in dust) and all of the mold in the showers.

DOWNSTAIRS AREA: The sofas were gross because they are fabric and were covered in stains. Furniture is clearly mistreated after a summer of guests. Leather would probably be a better choice for a rental. The kitchen was very poorly stocked as we had TWO dish towels for the entire unit. We had one super small cookie sheet (we could not even get a whole package of taco shells on it) and one pyrex baking dish. We had to buy casserole dishes to cook in at the grocery store because there was not enough in the kitchen to use. The frying pans were rough and had the non-stick coating peeling off. The coffee maker leaked everywhere. We had to provide our own dish detergent, paper towels, trash bags, hand soap, dish soap etc. It's just un-believable to me that the price they were charging could not have included such basic items.

Oh and did I mention the lock for the door did not work the ENTIRE time we were there? We called and they came out and said "Well, there is a crime rate of zero so you'll be okay" I am not even kidding when I say there was blue painters tape over the lock the entire week.

If you are judging by pictures this place is beautiful, but we will not be staying here again

Family beach trip paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. It was my family of 4, my brother's family of 4 and our parents. The 4 kids loved the bunk room! The downstairs is so roomy! The kitchen was well stocked and so spacious. The separate ice maker was a cherry on top. We loved having the beach so close and the kids loved the pool. We actually booked our week for next year before we left this year!
