About

Rumors- Sunday to Sunday during peak season. Do you dream of getting married on the beach surrounded by sparkling white sand, crystal blue water, and beautiful sunsets? Turn those dreams into reality! This house was designed for entertaining and would be a great location for weddings, multi-family vacations or corporate retreats as well. Flat screen TVs in every room and indoor surround sound ensure everyone can have their own entertainment.

Early risers can watch awe-inspiring sunrises from any of the three balconies of this unique 4-story home. But don’t worry if you sleep in; the magnificent sunsets can be experienced in the late afternoons while watching the dolphins play in the waves.

The ground floor features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Three of these bedrooms have private baths. There is a common area with sectional sofa, dinette, and a wet bar with mini fridge and under the counter ice maker, as well as a full-size refrigerator.

There is a large wet bar with mini fridge and under the counter ice maker here as well. The gourmet kitchen features a large Sub Zero refrigerator. While relaxing in the open living area’s comfortable furnishings, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Gulf from the many windows. Or step outside through the French doors and feel the gentle sea breezes while walking on the large balcony.

The third level features 4 bedrooms, 3 of which are master suites. The living room on this floor features 2 seating areas, one for watching television and the other for reading and viewing the Gulf. If you’re feeling lucky, try your hand at the beautiful poker table with comfortable seating for four. There is also a business center with wireless internet, printer, scanner, and fax machine. Long-distance phone calls are free within the continental US. Step onto the curved balconies where you can sit for hours taking in the sights and sounds from the surrounding natural beauty.

The fourth level is a true haven for those seeking peaceful relaxation. The furnishings are a sectional sofa with coffee table set facing the gulf. So curl up with the latest novel and drink in the views from the 4th level balcony. Leave your cares behind for a little while and find the peace of mind only nature can offer.

House is absolutely beautiful. If needs some work. The paint is peeling on the outside. The white is more offwhite with nails showing. No hot water in two bathrooms, two toilets would not flush and the jets on the master bath would not work. Also the front door will not stay shut unless it is locked and flooded the floor where two people fell when it started raining. As much as they charge you for cleaning two beds were not made and bugs were smeared on the kitchen counter. There spots in the house upstairs blue room that needs to be fixed where its rained and the water has ruined the sheet rock. The house is in a great location and beautiful but it not kept up. Great views of the beach. And easy drive back to gulf shores. Nice Kitchen and huge refeigerator. Would like for everything to be working correctly for the price you pay for the house.

The house is great for a large group. The beach is beautiful. The kitchen is not that well equipped. Needs more sauce pans, wine glasses, measuring spoons, etc. I bought a drain board and dish rack and they graciously paid me back for it. The furnishings are very nice. Location is great but would be better without a high rise next door.

13 of us stayed for a corporate retreat for 3 days. There was plenty of room for collaboration as well as individual work time and relaxation. One day the weather was particularly nasty, but Rumors was so lovely and provided such wonderful accommodations, we barely noticed. The days it was nice provided a beautiful vista that was the background for our productive days there.

Excellent. Checked in on a Thursday, welcome party Friday, wedding Saturday, a day of relaxation on Sunday and checked out on Monday. There are a few maintenance issues, but the management company responded quickly. Nothing that interferred with our enjoyment of the facility. We will likely be back!

We were able to accommodate the entire wedding party at the house. The house was large enough for us to have the after rehearsal dinner and the reception. There was plenty of room for the entire event. We had the DJ set up downstairs The only drawback is if you have a lot of folks who do not navigate stairs, it is difficult for them to move between floors. We had close to 150 people attend and no issue with tight space. The parking was ok as well. The house is getting some age and wear and tear but not too bad for the amount of traffic I can imagine that funnels through the house. If you want a beach wedding, I highly recommend Rumors beach House.

The Rumors house was a perfect location for our dream wedding. We were fortunate to have family and friends join us for a wonderful week on Orange Beach and have a fantastic sunset wedding right on the beach. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and very spacious to accommodate both young and young at heart. All bedrooms were spacious and opened to nice, large common areas. Kitchen was wonderful for preparing and serving meals for thirty people. Laundry capability was greatly appreciated. Ample parking for multiple families. Only minor issues came up during the week - one bedroom on third floor seemed to have trouble with air conditioning. One 1st floor bedroom had no hot water in shower. Management was alerted to issues, I am confident they will be addressed. Great people to work with at rental company, always prompt and pleasant with assistance during our planning and stay. This will certainly be a treasured memory!!

Everyone was overwhelmed with the beauty of Rumors and everything that it offered. There were 20 adults staying at Rumors but because the house is so big, especially the main living area, it never seemed like that many people.

The property was perfect for our get together. We went to the grocery often and it was very close. We had 28 people to eat each night and the house was perfect for our family. Some maintenance is needed on the house but other than that we were very happy with our week at Rumors.

We rented Rumors for four nights and performed our wedding ceremony on the house's private beach. We also held our reception at the house. It was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a unique and memorable spot for a small to medium-sized wedding. (We had 100 people.) Everyone who attended was blown away.

We also had a blast just vacationing in the home for four days. The rooms look exactly like they do in the photos. The only issue we ever had was that one of the refrigerators wasn't working when we arrived. It was fixed within a few hours, though. I wish I could go back and relive our stay again and again!

Great house on the beach with wonderful balconies and kitchen. Hot water did not work in one bath, and several lights were out on ground floor. Need to have maintenance team thoroughly check house before renting to next group. Knives in kitchen need to be sharpened periodically and several broken mugs replaced.....they did not have handles. Otherwise this is a fabulous place to stay for a large group at the beach.

Nice property. Plenty of space. Starting to show signs of wear and tear. Couldn't watch DVDs on the main floor. Doors on 3rd floor in bad shape. Located next to 24 floor condo complex so we got some spill over on to our beach. Kitchen lay out a bit cramped. Great decks. Enjoyed working with Holly. She was very helpful and professional.

With a large family (25), this house was perfect for allowing everyone under one roof, but with plenty of space to allow for privacy! The location and view of the beach was amazing with an easy unobstructed walk without steps to the ocean! Working with the rental company was very pleasant and they even responded on a Sunday. We were also quite impressed with the overall quality of the furniture and the well stocked kitchen. I would not hesitate to recommend "Rumors" or Coastal Realty to anyone need a large and luxurious home on the beach.

Great location and amenities for our stay of 25 people with plenty of room so you didn't feel cramped. The biggest issue we had was the people from Phoenix West utilizing the private beach area between the house and the water. Numerous families came over each day and we couldn't even set up chairs/umbrellas near the water without asking people to move (unless we took everything down before 8:00 am). Management addressed all of the maintenance issues promptly. The propery can use some overall maintenance/upkeep.

We are planning our next trip to Rumors already!

We booked Rumors House as soon as we found it online for our daughters wedding. The home, just steps from such a beautiful white sandy beach, took our breath away. We had 22 family members staying with us and it never felt crowded! The wedding was on a Friday which gave us the rest of the weekend to enjoy the beach. We had 6 babies, 3 and under and the house had plenty of baby gates and a crib in one of the bedrooms. Everything was just wonderful. Coastal Resort Realty was amazing and great to work with. I think the best part of our experience with CRR was that they really showed how much they cared about us and wanted the best experience before, during and after our stay.

we were overall happy with our stay. some minor issues with hot water and air conditioning, but let me just say, these issues were taken care of quickly and efficiently! the view is amazing, and the house is large enough for just about anything. multiple living areas, large bedrooms, private beach, and more. the best part of this house is honestly the service, with a house this size on the beach I can only imagine the upkeep, but the checkin and out was easy, issues were quick to fix, any info you might need was given in plenty of time. very impressed with the service. great job to the property management company.

We enjoyed our time in the house and would rent again. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, bowls, pans, cups, etc. The house was clean inside, but did need some attention outside as bottle lids and cigarette butts were around both sides of the house upon arrival. The furniture was all in good condition. The location to the beach was perfect.All the rooms were really large. The home does need some updated repairs especially to the doors. One door was cracked and we were afraid to use it, a door knob was falling off one door so we didn't use that one either. The kitchen counter top is coming off by the sink area and it's coming off at the desk on 3rd floor. Several tile pieces on porch and on second floor are cracked and in need of replacement.Overall the place was amazing just needs a little TLC due to age and probably being so close to moisture constantly.The AC downstairs was not cooling good but I called and let them know and they had someone out immediately and took care of it quickly. The rental folks were very friendly and professional to us through the entire process. It would recommend they have more outdoor furniture on the balconies.

The house was excellent for our 30 guests. Everything was great. The biggest problem was one woman from the high rise next door. But everything was taken care pf by the rental management. Actually, the husband came over to do some work and he was extremely nice and interesting. I recommend this rental because the house is wonderful and the rental woman and her husband were great. The beach is great and the house is also close to restaurants and stores. We did not have one unpleasant moment here.

We enjoyed our stay in Rumors. There were 27 of us and the house is very large and accommodating. The design of the house is beautiful and the furnishings are lovely and very comfortable.
I want to be fair but accurate in my review. (1) The pictures online show the house to in pristine condition, but there are a places in need of repair such as some of the outdoor woodwork and several floor tiles. (2) Theres no mention of the 30 floor condo right next door. This became a problem, even though there are a few small signs posting private beach families came across and set up their things and took up the entire beach in front of our house. To solve this problem we got up at 7 am to set up our chairs but were still surrounded by people.
There were a few maintenance issues. The refrigerator worked Sunday Tuesday. Wednesday morning we woke up to an overheated refrigerator and spoiled food. It took two days to get the part and get it cooling again. (They did reimburse for the food loss). The kitchen also has ants. The rental company did try to take care of the refrigerator and the ants but neither issue is a quick fix. One cannot predict when appliances will act up but ants might be a cleaning issue that needs to be addressed. The kitchen pots and pans are not sufficient for a home described as a gourmet kitchen and a house that sleeps 30 people.
The promised views of awe-inspiring sunrises and magnificent sunsets were correctly stated and everything we had hoped they would be. Several mornings we watched the dolphins play in the waves. The mornings and evenings spent on the deck will be fondly remembered by us all.
When we arrived home I noticed I had left my make up mirror. I called Holly, she checked with the cleaning staff and they had found it. She took it to the local shipping store. I paid the shipping, but this was very kind.
Overall our family vacation was filled with fun, laughter and precious memories of being together

The house itself:
My daughter got married at Rumors on Saturday and it was a wonderful experience. From the easy check-in to the easy checkout, everything was great! We had the ceremony on the beach and then the reception in the house. The caterers used the well-equipped kitchen and we housed many guests in the house for the weekend. We had the Flora-Bama Shuttle Service deliver people to and from the venue since we wanted to preserve the parking space for the caterers and those guests with mobility issues as well as flower delivery, chair delivery, etc.

The administrative side:
The management company staff was very helpful and professional. I got regular updates from the time I placed my deposit in September for an April wedding. The app helps with the codes for the door, security system, etc. In February we scheduled a walk-through to get an idea of the accommodations for planning purposes since an indoor ceremony was our backup plan in case of inclement weather. An agent met us at the house and let us in to look around for 45 minutes. We appreciated that a lot.

We were able to check in on Thursday at 4 p.m. and had until Monday at 10 a.m. to get all of our stuff from the wedding and reception out of the house.

I would definitely recommend Rumors for a wedding, family reunion/vacation, etc. Everyone who stayed there--from the photographer to the hair/makeup stylist---loved the house! I am SO glad we had the wedding here!

It was really a great venue for a wedding. We planned to have it inside due to the cold weather but our son and his beautiful bride decided that morning to do it on the beach.

Manager's Response

Thank you for visiting Coastal Resort Realty and Rumors. We love it when guests enjoy themselves and the property! January is a wonderland when it comes to possible temperatures, some days shorts other days a coat. Nevertheless, thanks to you, we found a local company for outside heaters. We wish you and your family all the best.

Thank you for visiting Rumors and the Gulf Coast. You are absolutely right, large properties need constant upkeep, especially with the salt air. We are continually making improvements on this beautiful, beach property, so that our guests can enjoy a quality vacation. Our doors do get damaged from time to time by guests and have to be reordered and repaired. As you know, we are here to help with any issues that may arise. Thank you again for choosing Rumors for your destination wedding. We wish you all the best.

We booked Rumors House as soon as we found it online for our daughters wedding. The home, just steps from such a beautiful white sandy beach, took our breath away. We had 22 family members staying with us and it never felt crowded! The wedding was on a Friday which gave us the rest of the weekend to enjoy the beach. We had 6 babies, 3 and under and the house had plenty of baby gates and a crib in one of the bedrooms. Everything was just wonderful. Coastal Resort Realty was amazing and great to work with. I think the best part of our experience with CRR was that they really showed how much they cared about us and wanted the best experience before, during and after our stay.

Manager's Response

We are excited to hear you and your family are planning your next trip to play at the beach and Rumors. It is our pleasure to provide you with the type of service to deliver your ideal wedding and play time. We wish you and your family all the best.

we were overall happy with our stay. some minor issues with hot water and air conditioning, but let me just say, these issues were taken care of quickly and efficiently! the view is amazing, and the house is large enough for just about anything. multiple living areas, large bedrooms, private beach, and more. the best part of this house is honestly the service, with a house this size on the beach I can only imagine the upkeep, but the checkin and out was easy, issues were quick to fix, any info you might need was given in plenty of time. very impressed with the service. great job to the property management company.

Gerry, thank you so much for the kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Rumors. Making the guest happy is our number one goal. We would love to have you stay with us again sometime.

Great location and amenities for our stay of 25 people with plenty of room so you didn't feel cramped. The biggest issue we had was the people from Phoenix West utilizing the private beach area between the house and the water. Numerous families came over each day and we couldn't even set up chairs/umbrellas near the water without asking people to move (unless we took everything down before 8:00 am). Management addressed all of the maintenance issues promptly. The propery can use some overall maintenance/upkeep.

Manager's Response

Scott, we are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay at Rumors. It is such a great house with awesome gulf front views. So sorry you had trouble with other guest coming over to your beach. We would love to have you rent with us again next year.

With a large family (25), this house was perfect for allowing everyone under one roof, but with plenty of space to allow for privacy! The location and view of the beach was amazing with an easy unobstructed walk without steps to the ocean! Working with the rental company was very pleasant and they even responded on a Sunday. We were also quite impressed with the overall quality of the furniture and the well stocked kitchen. I would not hesitate to recommend "Rumors" or Coastal Realty to anyone need a large and luxurious home on the beach.

The Rumors house was a perfect location for our dream wedding. We were fortunate to have family and friends join us for a wonderful week on Orange Beach and have a fantastic sunset wedding right on the beach. The house was beautifully decorated, clean and very spacious to accommodate both young and young at heart. All bedrooms were spacious and opened to nice, large common areas. Kitchen was wonderful for preparing and serving meals for thirty people. Laundry capability was greatly appreciated. Ample parking for multiple families. Only minor issues came up during the week - one bedroom on third floor seemed to have trouble with air conditioning. One 1st floor bedroom had no hot water in shower. Management was alerted to issues, I am confident they will be addressed. Great people to work with at rental company, always prompt and pleasant with assistance during our planning and stay. This will certainly be a treasured memory!!

We were able to accommodate the entire wedding party at the house. The house was large enough for us to have the after rehearsal dinner and the reception. There was plenty of room for the entire event. We had the DJ set up downstairs The only drawback is if you have a lot of folks who do not navigate stairs, it is difficult for them to move between floors. We had close to 150 people attend and no issue with tight space. The parking was ok as well. The house is getting some age and wear and tear but not too bad for the amount of traffic I can imagine that funnels through the house. If you want a beach wedding, I highly recommend Rumors beach House.

The house is great for a large group. The beach is beautiful. The kitchen is not that well equipped. Needs more sauce pans, wine glasses, measuring spoons, etc. I bought a drain board and dish rack and they graciously paid me back for it. The furnishings are very nice. Location is great but would be better without a high rise next door.

We rented Rumors for four nights and performed our wedding ceremony on the house's private beach. We also held our reception at the house. It was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a unique and memorable spot for a small to medium-sized wedding. (We had 100 people.) Everyone who attended was blown away.

We also had a blast just vacationing in the home for four days. The rooms look exactly like they do in the photos. The only issue we ever had was that one of the refrigerators wasn't working when we arrived. It was fixed within a few hours, though. I wish I could go back and relive our stay again and again!

Great house on the beach with wonderful balconies and kitchen. Hot water did not work in one bath, and several lights were out on ground floor. Need to have maintenance team thoroughly check house before renting to next group. Knives in kitchen need to be sharpened periodically and several broken mugs replaced.....they did not have handles. Otherwise this is a fabulous place to stay for a large group at the beach.
