Hazel H. This house had everything you would have in your own home so it made it easy to cook and have a great time inside and outside. The deck outside was wonderful and very spacious, a perfect place to have morning coffee and listen to the beach. There are two swings upstairs and downstairs which were also great for hanging out. The pool table was a hit with the kids. A quiet and family like place which was great for us. My husband and I were able to run around the block in the morning and then enjoy how close the beach was to us. The house had water toys for the kids as well. The only thing that I had an issue with was that I could tell that house keeping came in and just quickly cleaned it well enough for the next family staying there. There are little things that needed to be done that kind of added up such as: the showers (outside and inside) still had old soap from then last people, there was old french fries in the oven from who knows how long, some of the lights on the deck were not working, there was a broken chair on the deck, empty charcoal bag was left behind, one of the drawers in the kitchen was broken, there was a black sock underneath the bed. Overall little things that just need a little extra attention from housekeeping! I would give this property a 5 if it was wasn't for those things mentioned above. It's more like a 4.5 for us!

Charles P. The house was great and working with Turnkey was a smooth experience. We were a family of 3 generations, ages from 3 to 70, and everyone had a great time. We liked that we could walk to the beach and we loved the balconies and spent quite a bit of time out there. It was nice that part of the deck was covered and part uncovered and the deck furniture was very nice and comfortable. We also enjoyed the pool table, which is a nice little extra. This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and we loved it there. Lots of nice restaurants and shopping close by, but you are in a nice, quiet area at this house. We highly recommend this house for anyone looking for a great place to stay in Gulf Shores.

Lauren E. My mother, sister and our children had a great time at Anchor Up. The location was great. And even though there was construction going on around us, we could not hear a thing. That back porch!!! Amazing!! I spent a lot of time out there. The pool table was the biggest hit with our children. The 3 star for the condition was that several of the lounge chairs were broken.) I’m sure I gave the construction crew next door a good laugh when I tried to sit on one. Also, the fixtures in the guest bath weren’t in the best condition. Other than that, we had everything we needed in the kitchen and we cooked breakfast and dinner most days. Lauren with TurnKey was very responsive.

Teresa H. The house was immaculately clean and within a block of the beach...easy walk. The deck was great to sit on in the morning for coffee and in the evenings. Enjoyed playing pool on the pool table and had a great area to sit and relax while using the charcoal grill. The tub with jets in the master bathroom was wonderful!! My only issues were that the grill wasn’t clean and had used charcoal in it and most of the shower curtain hooks were off of the shower curtain in the hall bathroom. Also, the door lock was hard to lock and unlock because the deadbolt was very loose and would spin and spin. It would take several attempts to lock and unlock the door. But overall, the house was wonderful and I would highly recommend it!!
