Back-to-School Beach Bash

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

You may not know it by the weather, but summer is coming to an end. At least it is for students and their families. Rather than bidding the season a sad farewell, come celebrate it with free live music and s’mores at the beach!

Free s’mores and live music on the beach! Bring your family to celebrate the end of summer at Gulf Shores Public Beach on Friday, August 10, 2012.

This Saturday, August 18, the City of Gulf Shores will host the second annual Beach Bash. Starting at 5 p.m., it won’t be hard to find the activity at the west end of the public beach. You’ll see campfires surrounded by folks of all ages creating and savoring (or gobbling) toasty, melty, oh-so-good s’mores. And others will be enjoying shaved ice.

With all that extra energy from the treats, you and the kids will have a blast dancing to the music played by DJ Shawn Weaver.

Send the season out with a simply yummy event. Round up your beach blankets and chairs, a cooler of cold beverages, and your family and friends, then relish the final evenings of relaxation before school activities kick into gear.

How about celebrating even bigger with a last-minute back-to-school beach getaway? When you stay by August 25 and pay for 4 nights, you’ll get two more nights FREE! Check out the details, then start packing for some fabulous end-of-season bonding with your family.

Celebrate Your Valentine at the Beach

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

Valentine greetings have been popular since the Middle Ages. The first commercially printed Valentine cards in America appeared in the 1840s. Today, an estimated one billion cards are sent each year, often accompanying the popular gifts of candy and flowers.

Make Valentine's Day even more special when you bring your valentine to the beach.

Those gestures are wonderful, sweet, and certainly appreciated by anyone who receives them. But wouldn’t you like to do something a little different for your sweetheart this year? Say “I love you” by creating a wonderful memory together at the beach.

We can help by offering some love to your budget. When you take advantage of the Valentine Special through Meyer Vacation Rentals, you’ll receive TWO free nights. Rent a romantic 1-bedroom beach or bay property for four nights, but just pay for two. That’s a 50% savings!

If you prefer to celebrate the occasion with spacious, private accommodations for the whole family, rent a house for seven nights and get the sixth and seventh nights free.

Even if you can’t stay the extra nights, you can use them for an early check-in and late check-out, allowing for more leisure time along the coast.

So instead of thinking red or pink this Valentine’s Day, think white sands and blue water—and a little extra green in your pocket. Your sweetheart will love you for it.

Big Game at the Beach

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Think ahead to February 5, 2012. It’s the height of the winter season. You need to escape to the beach for a bit of warmth, a change of pace, relaxation . . . and football.

Imagine watching the biggest football game of the year while looking out over the beach. Meyer Vacation Rentals can help make that happen for you!

That combination may not be top of mind, but why not? On Super Bowl Sunday, wouldn’t you love to chuckle at the idea of parkas, hats and gloves to get to and from the stadium as you admire the beach view from your condo?

Let us help you make the decision by sweetening the pot with FREE nights. Pay for 2, 3 or 4 nights in a condo and get an extra night free, or book a house for 3 or 4 nights to get another night free. Better yet, come enjoy the beach life for a week—pay for 5 nights in either a house or condo, and we’ll give you TWO more free nights! (Even if you can’t stay the extra nights, you can use those as a late check in or check out.) You’ll find the details at our Lazy Winter Special page.

If you’d like to watch the big game among a cheering crowd AND play some games (how about a grand prize of $5000?), join the folks at The Hangout for their Super Bowl Sunday party. The first 200 people in the door an hour before kickoff will receive free tailgating food, and the regular menu also will be available.

Smoke on the Mountain

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

It’s the 1930s, and the fictitious Sanders Family Singers is holding a “singin’” of traditional and bluegrass gospel music on a Saturday night in North Carolina. And you are a member of the congregation, eager to hear the music, witness the witnessing, share in the lives of the realistic (and non-preachy) characters, and be uplifted by a big helping of laughter.

South Baldwin Community Theatre, Gulf Shores, Alabama, Smoke on the Mountain, musical, play

Down-home gospel and bluegrass music woven into the lives of the fictitious Sanders Family Singers of the 1930s. Be part of the "congregation" at South Baldwin Community Theatre in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

As the dozen-plus cast members tell their stories, they segue naturally into great old hymns, some well known, others obscure. You’re sure to recognize sacred standards such as “Rock of Ages,” “I’ll Fly Away” and “Church in the Wildwood”—but even the unfamiliar tunes will bring on a sense of nostalgia for the little ol’ one-room community church that everyone in town attended.

Smoke on the Mountain will play Friday, September 30 and Saturday, October 1 at 7:30 and Sunday, October 2 at 2:30—and again the weekend of October 7–9 at the same times. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 for students; group rates are available. Call to reserve at 251-968-6721. South Baldwin Community Theatre is located at 2022 W. Second St. in Gulf Shores, across from the Erie Meyer Civic Center and Bodenhamer Recreation Center.

If you are looking for a vacation property to call “home” during this show or any time, how about choosing a 2-bedroom condo in Gulf Shores? Meyer Vacation Rentals would love to help you find the perfect place to relax so you can take advantage of all our area has to offer!

Beach Volleyball in Perdido Key

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Fast-paced action on a soft, sandy beach. Teams of two, four or six in pool play, elimination and championship rounds—men’s, women’s and coed divisions, and corporate and recreation leagues. And yes, plenty of excitement, sunshine and bikinis on and off the courts.

Compete or cheer on the players. Either way, September 18–19, 2010, will be an action-packed weekend on the beach

September 18 and 19, 2010, brings the 2nd Annual Perdido Key Open Beach Volleyball Tournament to the sand behind the Flora-Bama. It’s not too late to join in the competition or to make your plans to attend and cheer on your favorites.

An inexpensive entry fee ($40 for 2-person teams, $80 for 4-person teams or $100 for 6-person teams) makes it possible for anyone to enter. The action begins Friday with a captain’s meeting followed by a player’s party, then pool play takes place Saturday and championship play on Sunday.

All participants will receive a T-shirt, but there are also gifts, trophies, medals and cash prizes to be won. So grab one or more folks to form your team, brush the rust off your serve and go for it. Visit the official website or call 850-492-4660 for further information.

Furry Friends Can Frolic Freely Near the Beach

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

“Run, Spot, run!”

Residents and visitors used to hear (or shout) this quite often along the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach shorelines. When laws were drafted to require our little and not-so-little four-legged friends to be kept on leashes and away from the public beaches, state park, Fort Morgan and wildlife refuge, that command faded away. But now both cities offer a welcome alternative.

Let your best friend play freely at a dog park in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach, Alabama.

Recently opened is a fenced area near Sportsman Marina on Canal Road. The Orange Beach Dog Park makes it possible for your pet to enjoy unleashed playtime within its boundaries, thanks to the many folks who donated money and/or time to make this possible. Those in charge obviously had a sense of humor, as the park boasts strategically placed fire hydrants!

Just across the street from the Adult Activity Center and just south of the Bodenhamer Recreation Center in Gulf Shores is the Beason Wilkes Dog Park. Water is available in the small fenced area that will accommodate dogs of all sizes, with smaller dogs in the front and larger dogs just behind it. And yes,  fire hydrants are available there, as well.

If you are planning to bring your dog with you when you visit the Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast, Meyer Real Estate will be pleased to help you locate dog-friendly vacation rental properties.
