The Gift That Fits Every Time

The ideal gift can be difficult to find, but we have a solution!

The ideal gift can be difficult to find, but we have a solution!

It’s time to choose a gift for someone special. But your sibling/parent/best friend/cousin has all the material goods he or she needs. Another knickknack or small kitchen appliance may end up in a closet or cupboard, rarely used in spite of your good intentions.

A gift of experiences and memories, though, will be forever cherished. The honored recipient will immediately understand the special thought that went into choosing it, and you’ll be reminded often of how much it was appreciated.

That is why a gift certificate for accommodations from Meyer Vacation Rentals is the perfect fit. It allows you to present your loved one with something specific, yet offers them a great deal of flexibility. They can choose their preferred dates to stay in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Fort Morgan, Alabama, or Perdido Key, Florida. And with nearly 1300 condos and 300 houses located along the Gulf of Mexico, inland waters or golf courses—including virtual tours and photos of all properties—they will enjoy the online shopping experience almost as much as the actual getaway.

Make it a gift from just you, or arrange for your family or a group of friends to chip in together. Your gift certificate can be for any dollar amount you choose, and your recipient can get even greater value when they use it with one of our many specials or Hot Deals. With everything from a romantic 1-bedroom property in Gulf Shores to a 36-person house in Perdido Key perfect for family reunions and weddings, your gift offers a wealth of options.

Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Meyer Vacation Rentals Gift Certificates are available year-round by calling 877-877-5066. Our terrific vacation representatives will be happy to help you and your recipient at any hour of the day or night, whenever it’s most convenient for you.

Historical exploration, water adventures, golf outings, outlet shopping, relaxation . . . No matter how their time is spent, you will feel wonderful knowing you gave someone a lasting gift that will always be treasured.

A Beach House for How Many People?

Halekai III

A large beach house may just be the perfect answer to your group's next multiple-night business or social gathering.

When you are planning a family reunion, business retreat or church gathering that requires a few nights in one location, does your mind immediately jump to an impersonal hotel, or maybe a group of separate condos near each other?

Why not consider everyone staying together in one house at the beach? Below are six Gulf Shores houses in Meyer Real Estate’s vacation rental program that will accommodate 22 to 32 people. Follow the links to see virtual tours and photos, learn more about the amenities offered at each property, and check dates of availability.

Egret, 4 miles west of the north-south AL Hwy. 59 that ends at the beach in Gulf Shores, is a one-story house that is deceptively large. Its six bedrooms combine king, queen, double and twin beds; when the 3 sleeper sofas are included, 22 people can call this gulf-front location “home.”

Avocet also sleeps 22 in its two-level, 4200-square-foot house located gulf-front almost 14 miles down Fort Morgan Road in the Surfside Shores subdivision. The five bedrooms include king, queen, bunk and double futon configurations.

Aqua Vista is a new home on West Beach, just three miles from the main beach intersection. With eight bedrooms and baths divided among three levels, 23 people can share the gulf-front house and still enjoy a bit of privacy within its 4000 square feet. Bedding includes king, queen, bunk and triple bunks as well as a sleeper sofa.

Erica’s Sandpiper is another eight-bedroom/eight-bath home that can be shared by 24 relatives or friends. A combination of king, queen, double, twin and sleeper sofas are found within this 3800-square-foot, single-level gulf-front home. You’ll find it in a quiet area 4 miles down West Beach.

Halekai III boasts 8000 square feet near the end of West Beach. The 11 bedrooms and bathrooms can accommodate 29 people among the king, queen, sofa queen, bunk and day beds. Numerous extras, including a media room, two kitchens and three living rooms, make it possible for purely fun or all-business gatherings to be comfortable at this gulf-front location.

Ranch Beach House is owned by a non-profit agency, with proceeds benefiting a children’s charity. Its 2600 square feet are spread over two levels, including six bedrooms, six and a half baths and two living rooms. Bedding consists of king, double, twin and triple bunk configurations, making it ideal for family, corporate or church groups. This house that sleeps 32 is adjacent to the pass on West Beach, across the street from the gulf.

The time is right to plan for next week’s or next year’s cozy weekend for two, family getaway, corporate team-building week, or large-scale celebration. Choose from 1600 condos and 300 houses on or near the beach or golf course. We’re eager to delight you with our renowned STAR Treatment!

Thar She Blows! (But It’s Not What You Think!)

Discover the craft and participate in glass-blowing classes in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Discover the techniques and participate in glass-blowing classes in Orange Beach, Alabama.

A glowing blob at the end of a long stick turns into a work of art. YOUR work of art. How does that happen?

The newly opened (August 2009) Hot Shop at Orange Beach Arts Center is Alabama’s only public access glass studio, and the artists there want to teach you about their craft. How exciting! I’ve seen a glass blower at work a couple of times, but never had an opportunity to participate. Now is my chance – and yours – to discover the secrets behind those wonderful glass ornaments, paperweights and vessels.

Every Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., artist Joe Hobbs will begin with a demonstration, then allow you to create your own piece. The fee is just $20 for an ornament and $35 for the paperweight. But the educational fun is priceless.

Looking for a more in-depth experience? Participate in a three-hour workshop filled with hands-on opportunities. These afternoon sessions (2-5 p.m., $150) teach techniques for shaping and coloring the glass, and you can take your three or four creations home the next day. If you are a guest in town, don’t worry – they can ship your art pieces to you.

If glass craft isn’t your artistic priority, you’ll find plenty more to choose from. Mixed media, pine needle baskets and colored pencil classes begin in September, each extending four or six weeks. And there’s more on the horizon.

Keep in touch with the Orange Beach Arts Center to learn about upcoming opportunities. You’ll find them at 26389 Canal Rd. in Orange Beach, Alabama, and online at www.OrangeBeachArtCenter.com.

Open your creative mind with peaceful walks on the beach, and take home one-of-a-kind treasures when you combine your day of glass art with a weekend at the beach! Meyer Real Estate has terrific specials and specific-property hot deals to make it affordable for you. Let us help bring out the artist in you!

Ahoy! Vacation Rentals for Boaters

Bring your boat when you vacation along the Gulf of Mexico!

Bring your boat when you vacation along the Gulf of Mexico!

Feeling the wind in your face as you skim near the water’s surface is both exhilarating and relaxing. The rev of the motor, the whip of the sail or the nearly inaudible swish of the oar brings immense joy to millions of people every day, in all locations throughout the world.

So when you decide it’s time for a vacation, bringing your boat along is a natural desire. But not every vacation property can accommodate the trailers, the extra parking space, or the sheer size of such a vehicle in a parking lot or driveway.

When you choose to vacation with Meyer Real Estate, we make it a little easier to identify rental properties that are friendly to traveling boaters.

On our site, you’ll find more than 25 condominium complexes and 30+ houses or duplex properties that welcome your boat or personal watercraft. Be sure to check the Amenities information to determine whether your vehicle meets any size restrictions, to find out if it’s first-come/first-served or reserved space, if you can only dock or also keep the trailer on the premises, and to be aware of any fees involved.

By spending a minimal amount of time investigating your options, you will soon find a property that is just right for you and your boat. By the way, don’t forget to check our specials and hot deals to get the best deal. And if you need to speak with one of our oh-so-helpful reservation specialists, give them a call at 800-213-9544.
