We rented this property for a group vacation (3 families, 7 kids/6 adults). Everyone kept complimenting on how great the property was. The kitchen was fully stocked, there was plenty of room for everyone to have their own bed and personal space, and having the pool and beach directly outside was great. All adults had their own bedroom and bathroom too, which was a nice bonus.
I highly recommend this property for others interesed in a quality, spacious vacation home.
We again had an absolutely wonderful week at your beautiful home....we loved all of the improvements that you made and took very good care of the new sofas and chair...love the new oyster shell chandelier and decorative table decorations!
Thank you again,
Having a second refrigerator was awesome !
Couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at "Castle in the Sand East"! Everything was just as it was described and was perfect for our bunch! The pool was an added bonus and was great for our little ones (and big ones) when they tired of the ocean water. Everything worked great and there was plenty of everything for our bumch! Just a great week and great memories were made! Will definitely be returning at some time!
Best overall layout I’ve ever experienced with a large family!!!
Fantastic!!! Our family, 6 children and spouses and 17 grandchildren had the best time ever!!!!
The home is absolutely beautiful. It fit our group of 33 perfectly, and after many years of renting homes it was a treat to settle in to such a brand new property.
The things we loved:
The proximity to the beach and the provided beach chairs. We laughed, because despite the description ahead of time, we still packed for a trip that was going to require some beach schlepping. Being so close to the beach was a blessing. Our group had 19 kids ages 6 mos to 12 years, and it was lovely being able to get back and forth so easily. And as it turned out, we didn't even need to bring cooler to the beach the walk was so short! We rented chairs/umbrellas (which as awesome), but the ones on site were so great to have after the sun went down during the nightly crab hunting sessions.
The kitchen/dining room--this area of the home was not just beautiful, but so so so functional! Having three dishwashers, ovens and refrigerators, multiple sinks and ice makers and that gorgeous island kept the flow in the kitchen so efficient--important when your'e feeding 33 people three times a day! All of the provided dishes, pots/pans, etc were great. I would have loved a few more cooking tools--it felt like I was always looking for a spatula or whisk that was in the dishwasher. Doubling up on some of those items might be a good idea. I joked I wanted to come back and cook thanksgiving dinner in that kitchen!
Location--we loved being away from the hustle and bustle of the 'main drag.' We felt so secluded, like we had the quiet beach to ourselves. It was wonderful! and just what we wanted out of our trip. We did go to the Hangout one night for dinner, and while it was fun, as soon as we got there we wondered--why did we even leave our beautiful house?
For what it's worth, we had really positive experience ordering food for large groups from Hog Wild, Shrimp Basket, Gulf Shores Seafood and Cactus Cantina. Would highly recommend all.
Your check out policy compared to other houses we've rented was easy to accommodate. I've rented houses where every bed needed to be stripped, dishes put away,--the long list often goes on which makes the last day of vacation one of work, not play. You seemed to ask for only the minimum in help required to make it easier for the cleaning crew, which we appreciated.
Crews Quarters is an ideal spot to enjoy the beach
and coastal Alabama. It is a spacious well maintained home away from home..
Our stay at Heavenly Sunset met all expectations! The house, beach, and pool were wonderful. Thank you so much.
Virtually everything needed is provided in the house including the kitchen for a great stay. Nice to have a pool which we had pretty much to ourselves.
Very nice beach and very nice home. Owner very responsive. This was a gathering family for our 50th anniversary. It was perfect home for a large number of people. Everyone enjoyed it.
This house was perfect for our family. There were 16 of us (3 generations) with ages ranging from 1 to 64! We loved the location, private pool, quiet beach, all the bedrooms, and having 2 refrigerators and 2 dishwashers was an additional plus!! We highly recommend Crews Quarters
