Our group of 21 stayed at Dr. Wakefields gorgeous home for a week and had an incredible experience. This home is so perfect, it is on the beach, warm and inviting, comfortable, and the decor is top notch! Just finished building this year (2013). The amenities are awesome! The pool on the porch, half shaded and half in the sun was perfect for those of us who could not walk in the loose sand of the beach. Lots of sitting area on the porch and the kitchen, well , oh my! We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. This ranks #1 in our book. Would love to come back next year, but have to see where the leaders want to go. The men really enjoyed fishing on the beach. They caught lots of cats, but threw them back, not good for eating, but kept all the red fish they caught. Our pastor has them in his freezer. If you are looking for a beautiful, comfortable, fully equipped place to stay on the beach, this is it. We look forward to coming back. We didn’t want to leave, but life goes on! Thank you Dr. Wakefield for building such a wonderful beach property for all to enjoy! I pray people will respect your property and treat it as if it were their own. We did. Thanks again for having us!
My family rented The Veranda for our annual family reunion. The house is just amazing! The two dens are perfect for adults and kids to be able to enjoy their time without being on top of each other. The kitchen and dining areas are fantastic. The pictures are accurate, but truly do not do it justice. Hopefully, our family reunion has found a new home for years to come.
This home is unbelievable! A beautiful place with all your needs being met under one roof. We enjoyed the accommodations and cannot wait to return. The area, the furnishings, everything was first class. We will be returning.
Property was amazing! Floor plan is awesome. Everyone liked the fact they had their own private bathroom. Neighbors were very nice. We celebrated a wedding here and would recommend to anyone wanting to rent property for a wedding site. Large area for weddjng reception. Property clean and well maintained.
Because I have very high expectations I do not typically write reviews. Our stay at The Veranda in Gulf Shores delivered above expectations. The listing description was accurate, property was clean, well maintained and I found the owner to be honest and helpful. There were many wonderful features/amenities not mentioned in the description that were pleasant surprises. The quality of the furnishings, HD tv’s in every family room and bedroom, excellent floor plan, roomy bathrooms in all 10 bedrooms, multiple fridges & ice makers on every floor and the professional craftsmanship that obviously went into the property. The best part of the property is the kitchen – Absolutely fabulous for the discriminating chef! The view from every porch is beautiful and the beach was warm and inviting. Our family reunion/vacation that included 25 people turned out wonderful – even better than expected. I highly recommend The Veranda for large groups.
Gulf Shores was a fun destination. We have excellent chefs in our family so each couple was “chef for a day”. We dinned in for every meal! There are plenty of grocery options, shopping, golf and family activities close by. Gulf Shores was a great destination.
My friends and I all came on a trip here and stayed in The Veranda. It was incredible! The staff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The owner was incredibly nice and accommodating, and the house is truly as amazing as it looks! We were blown away, and had one of the best weeks of our lives! Thank you, George + Family!
My daughter was married on the beach in front of the home. The entire experience was wonderful and beautiful. The views were breathtaking. The beach house is so large that they may want to install an intercom from floor to floor. I would definitely stay again and recommend the beach house for any occasion.
My family of 14 got together to celebrate a special birthday at Enchanted Dunes. The house was amazing. The elevator was very helpful to the ones in the family who have trouble getting around. The views were awesome!!!! We felt right at home. The owner called us during our trip to make sure that everything was OK with our stay. It was just an all around great experience. We will definitely plan to go back to Enchanted Dunes again.
We plan a family reunion each year, selecting a different location. For the most part we use vrbo and recently home away in our search for the right place. This year we wanted a beach location and settled on Fort Morgan, Alabama. The preparations went very harmonious, with rental agent and owner, plenty of information to plan our trip and very courteous service. The property was exactly what we needed; plenty of space for group gatherings and also private rooms and baths. We stayed for 5 days, and because of the information provided we were able to parked on arrival and enjoyed the whole week without traveling anywhere by car. The place was well maintained, furnished as stated, clean and a real joy for everyone. We had family from Alabama, Florida east coast, Ohio and Michigan. It couldn’t have been better. It was one of the best locations so far in our 5 years of getting together. If you are looking for a Gulf Coast vacation you won’t be disappointed.
Hosted a wedding at this location and the house was more than we expected. Everyone had plenty of room and privacy with the layout of the house. Only disappointment was the 2nd floor master was not beachview and the access to the beach was a longer walk than I anticipated. The weather was perfect and the wedding was wonderful.
