Good vacation spot for 2019 Shrimp festival
1 4 5
Review Date: 10/16/2019
The rental was a good location in walking distance to the Shrimp Festival. The rental had good living space and a nice big dining table for meals and adequate bedrooms and baths. However, the full bath had a slippery tub and users had to maneuver around the plastic curtain over a window in the shower which should be updated. The half bath had a broken towel bar. The first impression was a broken blind in the door window and the door would not close tightly which resulted in the door alarm going off after we left one day. Although I appreciate that there were 3 tv's, the one in the living area was tiny. With the current low cost of big screen tvs, I suggest a new larger tv placed on a console instead of the small tv up in the ceiling like a hospital room. We brought our small dog but found quickly that the yard was full of sand spurs that had to be removed from his paws and fur. A little green grassed area would be appreciated.

Kathleen, we have made note of the issues inside the house and will make suggestions to the owner. Unfortunately sand spurs are part of beach living, we can spray but if all the neighbors don't it will be a temporary fix. Thanks for your feedback and we hope to see you again!

We have stated here twice and it has been great each time. Not one of the fancy places but adequate and affordable. The staff at Anchor Vacations are awesome. This place could use a little work but I under that is going to happen. We have used Anchor Vacations SEVERAL times and they are always awesome. We were there 15 days.

homeless people were living underneath the house before we got there an it was a mess. Was told they would clean it up they did not, we ended up doing it. This was my first an last time with Anchor
Manager Response: 07/16/2018

Response from Anchor Vacations, Inc.

We are sorry for the inconvenience of the people under the house. We have scheduled regular runs by the house to make sure this is not happening again. We did send someone to clean it up but you had already taken care of it, therefore I paid you what I would have paid maintenance. Sorry you had to deal with this issue on your vacation.

Overall stay was ok, good location, clean, not happy about the condition, it needs repair asap, kitchen sink faucet has low flow, bathroom lav slow draining, rottin wood on deck and stairs, hand rails on deck rotten and unsafe, overhead water leak in utility, wires hanging under house very unsafe, this shakes when an adult Walsh thru from a lack of proper wind bracing.
Manager Response: 07/16/2018

Response from Anchor Vacations, Inc.

We are sorry you had plumbing issues. Thank you for the information so we can have it taken care of. However, as for the safety of the house the city inspector inspected it in February 2018 and signed off that everything was safe to rent. The owner just had all the bracing re-enforced a year ago. We will have the deck boards, railings and wiring hanging down checked for safety issues. Again thank you for the information
Good time

We were very pleased with the location, walk to the beach, management company is very helpful, professional and communicated well. Overall the home is fairly tidy but Cleaning crew could be a little more thorough.

We had a great time staying at the Happy Clam. The walk to the beach was so easy, the large deck was great, and the three bedrooms were just perfect for three couples!

We had an amazing family vacation thanks to Anchor Realty and the "Happy Clam"! You have everything at your fingertips in Gulf Shores! On rainy days if you don't want to stay in, we suggest a drive to Mobile or New Orleans! You won't regret it! Perfect vacation location!
