and it was as great as our first. We’ve been vacationing in the OB area for 45+ years. Our usual Summer House digs had sold so we needed to find another unit we’d like to return to year after year and this is it. Has everything you could possibly need with a location in the complex that can’t be beat. Comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, serene beachy decor, great balcony furniture and uplifting “Happiness” throughout. Stephanie is easy to work with - very responsive and truly cares about the experience you have. See you again next year!
Oh we love having you Darla...and you travel a LONG way to visit us so we best be on our toes! Thank you for the kind words and hope to see you next time :)
Summer House 601A had everything (and more) our family of 5 needed. From booking to checking out, Stephanie was so easy to work with! Betty did a great job cleaning for our stay. We hope to be back soon!
Awe thank you Julie! Nice to know you're close to home as well. Appreciate your nice review. :)
Happiness 601a provides beautiful views of the Gulf! The wraparound balcony is phenomenal. There is an abundance of kitchenware as well as a crockpot, Instapot, and covered skillet. The stairs are right by your condo for easy access down to the beach. We had 2 families with 8 people total and had no problems at all. I already miss spending my morning on the balcony with my coffee watching the dolphins EVERYDAY!
Thank you Julie! Hope you come back soon.
We had a wonderful week!! Everything about this condo is amazing! Stephanie is so sweet and Ms. Betty does a phenomenal job cleaning. The balcony is my favorite place to be in the condo. I absolutely love the rockers. Thank you, Stephanie, for an unforgettable week!! We will be back again!!
Thank you for your kind review! We agree the Betty is the best & so is rocking on our balcony. Love to have you back anytime :)
We loved everything about this condo. The views are amazing, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the porch is so spacious. Stephanie made the booking process a breeze and was great to work with. Our family really enjoyed everything! Thanks for a great stay.
Thank you so much for your positive acknowledgement! We appreciate your feedback. Hope you come see us again!
Great location, nicely accommodated, well-appointed kitchen, and just a few steps to the beach . A killer wraparound terrace acts as an outdoor living room with sweeping Gulf views. Loved it - can't wait to go back!
Thanks for the review. I'm sorry we didn't have the whisk but will def replace it (and new bungee cords) before rental season starts up again. Your feedback about the electronic lock is also helpful. I hope we can earn that 5th star if you come visit us again. :)
This condo is amazing. Stephanie is so very easy to work with. We had 5 adults & all of us were comfortable inside & outside. The rooms are spacious & the condo design is very well laid out. We spent most of our mornings & evenings out on the balcony, which is just as amazing as the inside. It was also spotlessly clean with ample supply of towels & wash cloths, not to mention how well the kitchen is stocked. We definitely plan on staying again. Thanks Stephanie for sharing your Happiness with us & Thank you Ms. Betty for a spotlessly clean condo to enjoy for the week. The Bains. The Biggs. & L.Autry
Wow!!! Love reading this! I will definitely share your love with Betty! She's the best....hope you come stay with us again. We appreciate you. :)
We were so pleased with the condo for our girls trip. My friends love new adventures, but wanted to come back here again! Lots of room, extremely well stocked kitchen, games, great location, and the balcony!! We spent much time on that wonderful balcony, in comfy rocking chairs ( and high top table and loungers!) Stephanie was very easy to work with. And this was such a pleasant experience.
Nothing better than a girls trip! Glad you and your peeps found lots of Happiness! We love that balcony too....nothing like rocking while listening to the waves. Thanks for your kind words and hope yo come see us again!
First what a great condo, and a great location. It's exactly what's represented in all of the pictures, just beautiful and super clean. Stephanie was wonderful to work with and made the entire booking process very easy. I enjoyed your condo and will be returning soon, thank you so much for sharing we left with a smiles on our faces.
Thank you Steve! We also appreciate you helping with the few little issues with the doors...seems like it's always something! Hope you and your family come see us again soon! We love smiling faces!!!! :)
We’ve been home less than 2 hours and I am so missing Summer House’s spacious, beautiful balcony! ?? Nothing like spending your morning here with a cup of coffee or the evening after a long day at the beach, watching the waves crash and feeling that amazing breeze! We (party of 8) had plenty of room to spread out in the condo. Furnishings are clean and no attention to detail was missed - plenty of hooks to hang towels and swimsuits, lots of kitchen amenities, king bed is comfy, kids enjoyed their own room with bunk beds, and that ICE MACHINE! So convenient. Love the full size washer and dryer, too. This is the second property we’ve stayed at of Stephanie’s; both are beautiful and she is great to work with! We will not stay anywhere else on our trips to Orange Beach or Gulf Shores!
Thank you Pam.....we appreciate you taking the time to give us feedback! You are a thoughtful and gracious guest. You are welcome anytime. Hope to see you next summer ~
We enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked for meal prep.
Thanks Elizabeth! Glad you enjoyed it....we are Louisiana cooks and appreciate a little love for the kitchen!
Stephanie is amazing! It’s nice to rent from someone that cares about you and your needs. Condo…amazing! Spacious, balcony beats any thing I’ve seen in all the years of renting beachfront condos. We’ll definitely be back! I especially liked that summer house isn’t too big like some of the others in the area. Which means elevators are easily accessible and pools are never too crowded. Kids loved the double set of bunk beds!
Thanks for the love! We appreciate it…agree we have one of the best spots in OBA. ;)
From the moment we walked into the condo... we knew it would be a splendid stay! The smell was amazing, the cleanliness was perfection, and the colors were so vibrant and welcoming. We were welcomed with sweet little keepsakes from the owners to enjoy on during the stay. The beds were comfy, the living room/dining had an abundance of seating...each with a marvelous view! The kitchen was WELL stocked with any and all needed kitchen tools. As a mom, I was so appreciative of the ample amount of hooks in each room/bathroom for towels, hats, and swimsuits. The balcony was my favorite place to be! The balcony furniture is super comfy and plenty for everyone to have a seat with a view. The Mann's were more than accommodating and SO easy to work with. We love OBA and the location of Summerhouse was PERFECT. It was close to anything you needed.... groceries, pharmacy, souvenirs, drinks, restaurants, and activities! We will be back for sure!!!
Thank you Heather! We love having local folks enjoy a little Happiness too! I must say the rockers are my favorite place to be any time of the day or night. Hope you and your growing family come visit us again.
601A was absolutely perfect for our time at the beach! Stephanie made sure everything was there for us to enjoy our time and be able to relax! The condo is perfectly decorated & the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you may need! The views are breathtaking & the large balcony is perfect to watch the sun rise & set! We will be back ??
Thank you for your nice review! Love to hear when I guest find Happiness! Come back anytime.
This is by far the best condo we have ever stayed in. It has a cozy feel like you are at home. There is plenty of seating for everyone to hang out in the living area without being on top of each other. The beds were really comfortable. The best part is the balcony, it is amazing! The kitchen had all the amenities we needed so we didn't have to eat out every meal. The host was kind and very responsive. We will definitely stay here the next time we are visiting Orange Beach.
Thank you Sheree! I appreciate you taking such great care of our place and so happy you enjoyed it! You are welcome anytime!
This place has it All! Best views, best location, spotless and the kitchen has everything you need and more!
Yeah! We love that you loved Happiness! Thanks for the kind words~
We spent the month of Feb at Summer House 601A. It was fantastic. Stephanie was great to work with. The condo was light and bright. Very clean and well equipped. Very comfy beds and fantastic view from wrap around balcony. We would have booked for next Feb but was booked during the time we would wanted it.
Thank you Mark for your feedback! I know you enjoyed the break from that freezing weather. So nice to have met both of you and hope you have safe travels home and remember us another year.
This is our second time at 601A Happiness and we still absolutely love everything about it. Stephanie is wonderful to work with and she has thought of little touch in her beautiful and relaxing condo. We love the beach interior design and kitchen is fully stocked. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner and needed nothing. The views inside and out are the BEST along with the huge balcony for sitting/eating relaxing being at the beach. Location is close to Rouse's Market which we prefer over the Walmart there. Lots of restaurants close by and the Sweet Cone Alabama our favorite ice cream store. We will definitely return to his condo as soon as possible. We appreciate Stephanie and her family sharing this special spot. 601A Happiness - Our Happy Place too.
Thank you Michelle....you left the place in impeccable condition! You're always welcome & appreciated!
This was our first time staying in 601A Happiness, but it will definitely not be our last. Views were spectacular. The condo was perfect. Every imaginable kitchen appliance and utensil and dish was available. We loved it!
Thank you for the kind words Mitch! We try to make it as special and relaxing as possible. Look forward to you visiting us again soon~
This is our second time staying in this condo and can say nothing but wonderful things about the condo and in dealing with Stephanie. The condo is decorated beautifully and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. We will be back as it is one of our new favorite places to vacation.
Thank you Kelly! We appreciate the kinds words and that you take such great care of our rental while you're there!! Let me know when you and Mark need a little more Happiness!
This was our third summer staying at 601A and it was awesome! Stephanie is so easy to work and communicate with. The condo has the best balcony and view! Convenient to shops, restaurants, etc. Can't wait to come again!
You're almost a regular at Happiness! Yeah!
Our family stayed here for a softball tournament 7/2021 and absolutely loved the accommodations! Wonderful ocean view and more than enough space for our family! Great Stay!
Appreciate you Charles for helping us have a wonderful summer after our recovery. And thank you for letting us get our phone installed while you were there. :)
This was our first time staying in Orange Beach after staying in Gulf Shores about 20(+) times. We loved it! The Happiness601A condo gave us everything we needed after a very long 2020! All the condos we have stayed at before had a third bedroom that was only large enough for 1 bunk bed, which left our kids separated on pull out couches. This third bedroom was huge! They all loved being together! The kitchen had everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable. We had a few hiccups from other condos around us but that has to be expected post hurricane. The balcony was everything for us. We definitely found happiness and will return!
Thank you and your very husband Zac for helping with the plumber intrusions! The mystery is still unsolved....appreciate you and so happy we didn't have to cancel our reservations this July. We rallied at the end to get this unit ready for guests!! Happiness returned. Hope to see you Summer 2022~
We stayed at Summer House six years ago on our first vacation to Orange Beach. Since then, we’ve stayed at several Phoenix buildings. Summer House 601a is by far the best unit. Everything was clean, neat and comfortable. The view is incredible from the large balcony. Stephanie and her family have done an excellent job of recovering from the storm. We will definitely be back.
We are thrilled you enjoyed our place and agree that view is one of the best in Orange Beach! Thanks so much for the kind words.
Kim & Thad
We stayed at Summer House a couple years ago and enjoyed everything the condo had to offer. So when we saw Stephanie working hard and getting her condo set back up after the hurricane hit them last year we wanted to help support her. We are so grateful that everything worked out and we were able to come and make wonderful memories with our family.
First of all, may I say that Stephanie is by far the best owner we've ever worked with. Location of the condo is ideal, not too crowded and in close proximity to everything you need. And the unit itself - every attention to detail was met. From the welcome gift upon arrival, the comfortable and beautiful decor, to the many hooks in every room, this unit left nothing to be desired. And Stephanie thought of it all especially in the kitchen, as we dined in this trip due to COVID19 scare. Everything we needed was there, even my favorite spice - Tony Chachere's! The corner deck offered impeccable views and lots of beautiful and comfortable furniture for lounging with a glass of wine and napping. Bedding was very comfortable. My husband said it "felt like home" and that is something he's never said before. We will definitely want to return. Highly recommend this unit.
You are too kind!! We love our guests and most appreciate you! Come see us again soon!!
