Vacation Rentals in Gulf Shores Alabama

Vacation rentals in Gulf Shores Alabama have been really strong for the 2011 summer. We were especially surprised to have been totally booked for the past 4 weekends. Surprised because last summer we had the BP oil on our beaches and never expected summer rentals to be this great. For the past few years we’ve only been totally booked on holidays and special events. We as property managers are elated and our property owners are especially pleased. We hope to continue this trend on into the fall season with advertising and specials.

We received a ton of emails and phone calls this summer looking for last minute weekend rentals and rental specials. Unfortunately for approximately 98 percent of them we had nothing for them because we only had a few properties available due to vacationers booking early. For those who we couldn’t help this summer, please try booking earlier in the year so you will have your choice of properties from which to book. Our friendly Reservationist and user-friendly booking page should be a great help in selecting your next Gulf Shores vacation.
