I rented the bungalow for a small birthday celebration/vacation. I couldn’t have imagined what I was in for. When my friends and I first arrived, everyone’s jaws dropped open from astonishment. The place is breathtaking. That first view upon entrance is the best. The staff was friendly and inviting upon our (late) arrival. They made sure that we knew where everything was and how it worked. The set up underneath the houses was also great. There were different places to relax and even have a dinner or two. We grilled and relaxed by the pool and in the cabanas all day. The game systems and TVs gave us tons to do. When we weren’t swimming in the private pool, we walked across the street to the beach. It was so close and nice. Watching the sun rise on the balcony/patio with the sea breeze flowing was another great experience. The entire experience was amazing. Thank you Richard for making my birthday everything I could have dreamed of.
My friends and I rented out this location for Spring Break and we have nothing but good things to say! Not only was the house extremely nice and comfortable, but the outdoor area was a total paradise! We had such a wonderful week and would recommend this to anyone looking to vacation in Gulf Shores. Thank you also to Richard for his hospitality and professionalism before, during, and after the rental!

We had such a great time! The house was clean & plenty of room for our family & the family that went with us. Loved the third bedroom with 2 sets of bunk beds plus another twin in there.. The kids loved being in there together. We really enjoyed having a pool right outside our door & grills for grilling out. The kids loved having the cabanas with the game cube for them to play or just watch tv if they wanted a break from the sun. The beach is super close..Easy to go back & forth. Also had bikes for us to ride which was nice as well. Great stores right next door that have everything you need as well if you need to make a quick trip. Plenty of games outdoors.. Kids loved sand volleyball & the shuffleboard. Very laid back atmosphere & Rick always brought Popsicles to the kids when they were at the pool which they loved. Great place for family vacation, convenient, clean & fun. Thanks again!!

Staying at the Nantiki Resort for the last week was a great experience. The listing description very accurately described the property. I would recommend that the newly added Sand Volleyball Court be added to pictures on the website. The new court consumed a lot of my time while in the gulf, it was a ton of fun. I also liked that although the three houses are almost identical on the outside, each one is set up a little differently on the inside. The bedding was very comfortable and easily slept the recommended amount. It was nice to have the bikes that were available to make short trips to the convenience store that was a half block away. The Tiki Huts were very comfortable and provided nice outdoor seating that was still shaded. The owner is very personable and easy to talk to. He came by several times to make sure we were enjoying out trip. Customer service was very good. All of the restaurants in the area were amazing and there were too many to choose from. The distance from the resort to the beach was very minimal. There is a sand path that runs from the pool to a nearby parking lot that leads you to the beach. All in all, I would recommend this place to anyone. It is especially a great location for college aged spring breakers.

The photos and descriptions don’t do this resort the justice it deserves. We had a group of 12 and stayed in the St. Lucia. Not only was everything accurate to the description (the pool, the cabanas, the hammocks, even the miniature tiki men) but arriving to the Nantikis resort was like asking for a stuffed animal on Christmas and opening your present to find an 8 week old black Labrador puppy. It was better than you could even expect. Richard does a phenomenal job providing a relaxing, beautiful get-away as well as providing a multitude of amenities to actively enjoy vacation. The volleyball court was by far the best aspect of the property in my opinion, especially if you like to be active on spring break. It even has a spring board beneath the sand. It made for a great social activity as by the first day we had guests from both the other houses playing in games together or watching around the court. If you do spectate though, grab the chairs with the white cushions; they are by far the most comfortable things I have ever used. Richard is one of the friendliest people you’ll meet. He stopped by several times throughout our stay and spent some time talking with us and giving us advice on where eat and what to do in town. The house was also very tidy and clean. It slept 12 people very comfortably. The property could literally be used for any type of vacation ranging from a large family reunion vacation to a college spring break trip to a couple families planning a spring break together. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy their rental location so much that they have a heard time even leaving the property to go to the beach that’s just across the street! Thank you again Richard!!
