Whole House, Whole Family, Whole Lot Of Room

Part of the wonder of a vacation, whether traveling alone or with family and friends, is experiencing something that takes you outside the realm of ordinary life—new destinations or exciting attractions, perhaps.

An important component of the overall vacation experience that builds anticipation and generates excitement is the joy of finding the perfect accommodations.

Vacation rental houses at the beach are gaining popularity among travelers who are in search of an accommodations experience that goes far beyond what the typical cookie-cutter hotel room can provide.

More Space, Less Money

In a Meyer Vacation Rentals beach house, you and your friends and family can stay under one roof, with everyone able to enjoy more space at a lower price than they would in a hotel room. When you rent a house from Meyer, you will pay up to 50% less per square foot than you would in the average hotel room, making traveling with others even more economical when costs are shared.

A typical hotel room, at just over 300 square feet, simply does not offer the space that a Meyer Vacation Rentals house, ranging from just under 1,000 square feet and one bedroom like Plum Cute all the way up to more than 10,000 square feet and 20 bedrooms like Pearl, can offer.

Some of Meyer’s houses with numerous bedrooms even have multiple master suites and balconies or decks, giving family branches the opportunity to enjoy scenic views of the Gulf, lagoon, bay, golf course or other vistas in the privacy of their own spaces.

In a beach house, vacationers may also huddle in spaces like the living room, kitchen, dining room, media rooms, private balconies or other spots designed especially for allowing friends and family to catch up, play games or even do nothing at all.

Making Meyer’s beach houses so unique is that each one is individually owned and decorated, with owners taking great care to incorporate a coastal themed decor.

With the ability to accommodate more guests comes the need for everyone to be able to wash clothes, towels and swimsuits. All Meyer houses are furnished with washers and dryers and sometimes even multiple units.

Cook In Or Have A Meal Catered

In a beach house, it’s easy to dine in or prepare meals in your fully equipped kitchen. Or, if you have a large group and have rented a house with a sizeable kitchen, you might even want to consider having a special meal catered, perhaps for a wedding party.

Many of Meyer’s houses feature kitchens that are caterer friendly, with more than one refrigerator, stove, icemaker and dishwasher, and lots of countertop and cabinet space.

The Extras

Beach houses often have many of the same amenities you would find in a resort-styled condo complex, either on site at the house or within the community.

Some have private pools and hot tubs, game rooms, Jacuzzi tubs, exercise rooms and more, while others offer access to amenities like golf courses, pools, hot tubs and tennis courts.

For example, vacationers staying at one of Meyer’s houses within the Cottages at Romar neighborhood in Orange Beach enjoy access to the community zero-entry, saltwater pool; a cozy fire pit; bathhouses; a private access beach with walkover; and gated entry.

If you want to bring your dog, Meyer has more than 50 houses that are dog-friendly, including many in Fort Morgan, where leashed dogs are allowed on the beaches.

Another bonus when renting one of Meyer’s beach houses is that the majority of them are equipped with coded keyless entry locks, meaning you are able to bypass the rental office and check in directly to your house. Key codes are provided via text or email for participating houses.

Meyer’s beach houses in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach and Perdido Key fill quickly for popular vacation weeks. Make your selection now for your preferred week.

July is National Vacation Rental Month!

Consider a Vacation Rental in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach!

July is the ideal time to take a vacation. School’s out, the weather’s nice, and it’s the right time to make memories and have an adventure.

Finding the perfect vacation spot can be a challenge. First, you have to find the right location. After finding the right location, your focus turns to deciding on the type of amenities you prefer. Hotels offer limited space, and things can get cramped, depending on the number of people in your party. Have you ever considered a vacation rental in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach? You should!

Why? Here are some advantages:

Vacation Rentals yield more space and privacy. Vacation Rentals are practical for families and large groups. Sharing a space blends the idea of togetherness with enough breathing room for everyone. Vacation rentals in complexes also provide additional amenities such as golf, private pools, and tennis courts.

Vacation Rentals offer variety. From the cozy one bedroom condos to the sprawling 12 bedroom castles on the beach, there’s something for everyone. Depending on your price range, you can choose your own property for your vacation. You can even choose to be near the beach, the golf course, or high in the sky! The possibilities are endless. Most properties are also located in gated communities and residential neighborhoods. This allows you to blend in, experience the local culture, and have the security of knowing you and your family are safe.

Vacation Rentals also offer elements of comfort. Vacation Rental properties are often loaded with amenities. Private pools, multiple master suites, state of the art kitchen appliances, and high speed internet are featured in a number of condominiums and large houses, all while making it feel like home. You can have a truly relaxing vacation.

Don’t want to eat out? All properties have fully equipped kitchens. Fully equipped kitchens can give you an opportunity to make healthy meals for you and your family. Most vacation rentals have refrigerators and wet bars that are ideal for entertaining guests and sharing a snack.

The Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast Offers the Ideal Vacation Setting

With miles of white sands, rolling waves, and turquoise waters, the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast is the perfect backdrop for your next vacation. Count on Gulf Shores and Orange Beach to provide the ideal place to relax, unwind, and have a fantastic time.

Labor Day, Cajun Style at the Beach

For many people, a Cajun celebration may not be the first thing that comes to mind for Labor Day. But why not?

Party Cajun-style at The Hangout this Labor Day Weekend!

Unless you are from Louisiana, you may not even know what “Cajun” means, much less what kind of celebrating it might describe. If so, it’s time to change that! This Labor Day Weekend is your chance to party like a Cajun, whether as second nature or for the very first time.

The folks at The Hangout in Gulf Shores, Alabama—yes, where Highway 59 ends, right on the beach—are making it easy to live it up. The three-day festivities begin at 3:00 p.m. this Friday, August 27, and each night it doesn’t wind down until 2:00 a.m.

During this time, you’ll enjoy Cochon de liat, a traditional pig roast. You’ll also be treated to zydeco music all weekend, including dance music from the Mermaid Stage. A free family show by Jamie Bergeron and the Kickin’ Cajuns will begin at 7:30 p.m. Friday evening. Saturday’s special guests are Don Fontenot and Lez Ami de La Louisianne beginning at 7:00 p.m. And Sunday at 8:00 p.m. is another lively show with Wayne Toups.

It’s not too late to plan your road trip to the party. In fact, Meyer Real Estate has teamed up with The Hangout for the weekend and beyond, offering 50% off accommodations plus a $50 Hangout gift card. See the details and reserve your beach headquarters online. This is a celebration you don’t want to miss!

FREE Beach Concert – Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Zac Brown Band & More

It has been nearly 12 years since Jimmy Buffett played for local audiences—a 1998 fundraiser in Mobile benefited hurricane relief efforts. In just a few days, Jimmy will once again lend his musical fame to raise money for the Gulf Coast, this time appearing in Gulf Shores as a response to the oil spill disaster. The concert’s goal is to promote beach tourism and raise money for wildlife-related organizations to better respond to the crisis.

Upon learning of the fundraising effort, some of Jimmy’s friends offered to help out by donating their talents, as well. Joining Buffett and his Coral Reefer Band for this free show are the Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Sonny Landreth, Allen Toussaint and Jesse Winchester.

A large stage will be erected at the west end of the Gulf Shores Public Beach, where attendees will be able to enjoy the performances accompanied by the gentle sounds of the surf on Sunday, July 11. Gates will open at 3:00 p.m., and the first performer will take the stage at 5:00. Cable channel CMT will broadcast live from 7:00 until 8:30 p.m.

More information will be shared as it becomes available, including other star-studded, benefit beach concerts this summer.

Although admission is free, a ticket is required for entrance—and we can help. If you have a reservation with Meyer Real Estate, you are eligible to register for a pair of tickets. Multiple pairs are available, so your chances of winning are very good! Simply have your confirmation handy, and fill in the registration information by no later than 5:00 p.m. (CDT) on Tuesday, July 6. Winners will be notified on Wednesday, July 7.

To help you enjoy the free concert even more–or to make your summer vacation more affordable–Meyer Real Estate is now offering a great savings opportunity: Stay between June 24 and August 6, 2010, and take advantage of a 40% discount on condos or 30% discount on houses.

Late April or Early May?

You already know that a beach vacation is what you want, and you need that getaway sooner rather than later. Things are hectic at home or at work—or maybe both—and it’s been a long, cold winter. You need a little “Ahhh…” factor infused into your life.

The beach offers an escape from the everyday life, even if only for a few days.

What if we offered you a chance to get a free night in Gulf Shores, Orange Beach or Fort Morgan, Alabama, or Perdido Key, Florida? Meyer Real Estate always gives you the seventh night free. (Actually, you can get your sixth and seventh nights free if you stay by May 26 – click here to get the scoop.)

Are time constraints keeping you from enjoying an entire week at the beach?

No problem! Stay just three nights or four. If you choose a condo, your third night is free. Opt for a house and you’ll get your fourth night free.

Your schedule will only allow two or three nights? Just use your free night as an extended check-out. Sleep in on that last morning, spend the afternoon at the beach, and maybe hang around for dinner before heading home again.

Not once, but TWICE in the next four weeks you’ll find a commemorative day paired with a special offer of third or fourth night free:

* Celebrate Mother Earth when you opt for the Earth Day special and stay between April 20 and 26, 2010. Enjoy nature-related activities such as hiking, biking or birding.

* Celebrate family ties when you opt for the Mother’s Day special and stay between May 5 and 11, 2010. Let Mom choose to shop, dine out or admire items at an arts & crafts fair.

Let Meyer Real Estate’s specials and extra-large variety of vacation properties make it easier to reward yourself with a much-needed beach escape!
