We love Change of Pace For two weeks in July, this is our home away from home. Walking into the kitchen on that first day, well it feels like we've come home. It is clean, the location is perfect, and the house perfectly suited to our needs. Then of course being welcomed by Metri with the delicious key lime pies? That is above and beyond. Walking out of the kitchen on that last morning always brings a few tears. Change of Pace is our happy place.

Nice Change of Pace! This is our third year here, and as always, we really enjoyed our stay. The house is in a great location, where the beach is not crowded. The kitchen is large and well-equipped. We really enjoyed the screen porch as well. The house needed some minor repairs, which Metri made promptly.

Perfect Beach House Change of Pace made for a wonderful vacation home for 4 families. This beachfront house is in an ideal situation in a quiet beach and road area, away from the crowds, yet just a short drive to the downtown area.

Exceeded Expectations Third time renting this property. Literally steps from the beach. We enjoyed great temps in Oct-Nov and spent most days walking the beach or sunning on the deck. The screened in porch is a Fantastic location for sunrise and sunset watching. The house is roomy enough for large families and arranged in a way that privacy is not an issue. In my opinion West Beach has the absolute best beaches in the world. property manager Metri is ALWAYS attentive and professional. Our coffee maker stopped working during the first week, Metri brought a new one the next day. Great location, great house, great property manager- the complete package!

Wedding 2017 We rented Change of Pace and the house next door, Here to Dream, for a family wedding. Change of Pace has a large kitchen which was perfect for preparing the food, large living room for gathering, large bedrooms for guests and large space under the house for the rehearsal dinner and reception. The house had everything we needed and was very clean! The weather was perfect for a sunset wedding. Demetri accommodated our wedding needs. It was the perfect location for families from 6 states to escape hurricane Irma and celebrate a new marriage. I could not imagine a better facility than Change of Pace for this occasion. Our family is already dreaming up another reason to come back to "our beach house." Thanks for all you did Demitri. See you again soon!!

Couldn't Be Better Change of Pace has a floor plan that is perfect for multiple family units. Having your own bathroom with large groups makes it work. We loved each bedroom with the variety of art and colors and they were divided up perfectly. Then the kitchen was fun to cook in and the large table made dinners a special thing with little work. <br/>The beach is right outside the door and private. Neighbors each keep to their area in front of their house. We got spoiled on parts with this home. The water changed each day with the tide which made it very interesting. We went from some seaweed, to clearer, to jellyfish, to totally clear. Fun waves to totally calm, and always dolphins going by. Saw an otter, crab, stingray, and shells. Caught ocean catfish, and two other kinds of fish. Loved the freedom the space gave for everyone to do their thing--yoga, fish, board, build sandcastles, fly kites, walk for sunsets, etc. It was a treat to be here. Thought we would be driving far to everything else, but only 5 min to 15 min to places we went for pizza, groceries, etc. Only place I cleaned on my own was to sweep and hose off the sand at the outdoor shower area. I liked the area clear for walking and sitting. As the host and hostess we even got to relax since the house provides naturally to all ages.

The screened-in porch with the hammock was great for afternoons and evenings. It is an easy walk to the beach and it was nice to be able to go back and forth from beach to house. Plenty of parking also. The kitchen, dining room, great room area is open and large enough that we all could congregate together.

What a Change of Pace! We stay in Gulf Shores every year. This was our first stay at the Change of Pace beach house. We had a rather large group, so it was really nice having enough space to spread out. The location is great, close enough to town but also far enough away. The property manager is a pleasure to work with, he’s already helping us plan our trip for next year.

Change of Pace--May Vacation This is the second time we have stayed at Gulf Shores in a Kenyan Investments' property. Last year we stayed at Here to Dream, but because we had a larger group going on vacation with us this year, we needed a larger house.Change of Pace suited our needs perfectly. We had a total of 13 people with us on this vacation, and this house provided plenty of space to spread out, relax and enjoy the view. Change of Pace was clean, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed to comfortably stay for an entire week. The large refrigerator held all of the groceries we brought with us and the kitchen was stocked with all of the cooking utensils and appliances that we needed. The property manager, Demetri, met us at the house upon our arrival and greeted us with a delicious Key Lime pie, souvenir cups and a smile. He explained a few details about the house (i.e., a/c, door locks, etc...) and answered all of the questions that we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Change of Pace and hope to return for future family vacations.

The kids played in the water until they turned blue. And we all played volley ball in the sand when we could, and used the Gulf Shores Rec Center frequently. It is a great place. This trip we proved that fun is in you and not in the situation. <br/><br/>After the kids left, we hosted 20 people for a tailgate supper and to watch the Alabama/Notre easy to do in this house.

Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.
