10 Reasons Why You Should #BOOKDIRECT with SUNSET PROPERTIES in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Fort Morgan
There are so many ways to book your vacation reservations nowadays, it’s hard to decide which way to go. You can use a rental management company, use a VRBO or 3rd party site, or just book with an individual you find on Facebook. All have their advantages but there are a few reasons going with a rental management company like Sunset Properties can be your best option. Here are 10 reasons why you should consider Booking Direct with Sunset Properties when you plan your next vacation to Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Fort Morgan.
- Extensive choices of homes
When you choose to book direct with a vacation rental management company, you have a large inventory of homes to choose from. If you have a specific number of bedrooms needed, prefer a specific location or need special accommodations like elevators or boat ramps, all you have to do is search in one online location to find it all. Sunset Properties offers exceptionally decorated homes with all of these amenities available and all you have to do is look at one website – ours! Tired of hunting around the web to find your perfect vacation home in your price range? Look no further than www.sunsetproperties.com because we know we have the perfect place for you.
- Availability of staff
Booking with VRBO or with an individual may seem great at first. You send an email, negotiate a price, and submit your payment via the web. Easy. Peasy. Done. But what about service after the sale? What happens if you get to your vacation home and you need a real live breathing person to help you? Like right then? What happens if you get to your vacation home and find out the person you booked with and paid via PayPal is not even affiliated with the property? What if you trustingly get scammed? Then what? When you book direct with Sunset Properties, the internet is just your first connection with us. If you arrive at one of our amazing beach homes and you need something right away and need a local person to help, you’re in luck! We have two offices in Gulf Shores. One is located at The Dunes near Fort Morgan and the other is across from The Track at 3145 Gulf Shores Parkway (Alabama Highway 59). We have office hours most days and an on-call service for the things that pop up when our office is closed. If you need a human to help you, one will be available. We’re just a phone call away. No emailing required.
- Cleanliness of homes and properties
When you book with a rental management company, you know you are getting the cleanest possible condo or home, right? You really cannot be sure if you book from an individual. When you book with Sunset Properties, you can rest assured you will check-in to a superbly clean home. Just because you’re coming to the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast, where we know you love our sugary white sandy beaches, doesn’t mean you want to spend the night with sand on your floors. Not only will you check-in to a home cleaner than you might expect, you will also find brooms and mops in your condo or home in case you want to tidy up while you’re there.
- Options to change your mind
What happens if you book your vacation and something comes up? Can you change your mind? Can you change your home choice? Can you change your dates? We know that most folks plan their vacation times months in advance, but without regard to that, sometimes work can get in the way of the best made plans. Sometimes, our bosses require that we present an unanticipated report right in the middle of our vacation week. Sometimes we get sick or have accidents that prevent us from being able to go on our much-needed getaways. Then what? Maybe you’ll be able to reschedule with an online service or individual or maybe not. At Sunset Properties, we understand things happen. Depending on your circumstances, we will make every effort to help you reschedule your stay to a time that will work for you with minimal or no financial penalty. It’s what we do. It’s who we are. We are a family-owned, family-run company. We love to go on vacations with our families, too. And we know that for most folks a vacation week is a much- anticipated luxury family time and to lose that opportunity all together makes no one happy. Why risk losing your pre-paid vacation money with a strictly online service or private individual when you can book direct with confidence with Sunset Properties?
- Travel insurance guarantee
We encourage all vacation renters to purchase travel insurance. For a minimum investment on top of your rental cost, travel insurance covers all kinds of unexpected things that can, without proper planning, ruin a great vacation experience. We are proud to offer travel insurance. Depending on which level of coverage you choose, it will assist financially with all kinds of life’s little mishaps that may occur. Lose your luggage? It can help buy you clothes. Miss your flight? It can help with that. Did someone get sick while you’re traveling? Travel insurance can even help with medical costs. Can you get travel insurance from an individual? Maybe or maybe not. But you definitely have that option with Sunset Properties.

What you see is what you get. Most of us believe that what is represented online is a true and accurate description showing recent pictures of vacation destination homes or anything else we purchase online. At Sunset Properties, we pride ourselves on keeping our website updated to provide the most accurate information about and pictures of our beach homes. We don’t like going on our vacations and finding out what we booked isn’t what we get when we arrive and we never want our guests to be disappointed, either.
- No scams or spams
How many crazy texts and spam emails do you get daily? We get our fair share! We don’t like them, and you probably don’t either. We won’t share your personal information with random vendors. We won’t send you unnecessary texts. We won’t spam you and we won’t scam you. While some individuals may not actually be who they say they are, Sunset Properties is a reputable company, both in our local area and nationally. We are proud to be a member of the Coastal Alabama Business Chamber and a partner with the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau. Additionally, we have partnerships with Xplorie, and Red Sky. We are the real deal and we have over thirty-five years of experience in the real estate and hospitality industry and we are here to stay. You can rest assured you’re booking with a great company and rest well when you arrive and stay with us.
- Future bookings are easy
Once you become part of our guest family, your future bookings will be super easy. We actually form relationships with most of our guests. But even if we don’t get to know you in person, you will have an opportunity to go ahead and book your next stay with us while you’re here. We love to get folks set up ahead of time for their next trip to our Island Paradise. We believe you will fall in love with your vacation home (most of our guests do!) and want to go ahead and make sure it’s available for your next visit to Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Fort Morgan. Just give our office a call, and we’ll get you all set up.
- Pets are welcome
Do you travel with your fur baby? We do. Our four-legged kids are just that: our kids, too. So, we truly understand the need to bring your whole family along when you come to the beach. Many of our vacation homes are dog friendly. With some restrictions, you are welcome to bring your fur baby with you. We are also happy to recommend doggie spas, doggie daycares and places to take your dog for a family outing. We also know which beaches are dog friendly and where the best dog parks are. We can recommend these vendors and venues with confidence, because we go there with our fur babies, ourselves. We live and work here. We are not just some internet site or faceless email you correspond with. Can your VRBO site or private individuals do that?
10. Special services are offered
Is there something special you want when you arrive to your vacation home? Maybe you want a special meal delivered. Maybe you want a Christmas tree when you arrive. Maybe you just want someone to accept flowers for you, so your arrival is one to remember. We will make every effort to accommodate special guest requests like these. Just call our office at 251.543.1370 and tell us what you need and let us see if we can make it happen for you. We may even know the perfect person for you to call to arrange your special something.
These are just a few of the reasons booking direct with Sunset Properties is a great choice. We didn’t even mention the add-on fees VRBO charges owners that you, the guest, will ultimately incur. We hope you choose to book with us. We are ready to help you get your next vacation planned in one of our amazing beach homes that sleep from 2-20 people and pets. We have homes with elevators, stairs, private pools and gyms on site. We have condos and story-book beautiful Gulf front houses. We have homes in golf course subdivisions and homes with boat slips. We even have a couple of penthouses that are just waiting for your arrival.
