🤝 Our Mission

Luke & Laura Brannon

Owners & Operators

About US

Hi, I’m Luke Brannon, Owner and President of Grand Welcome of Orange Beach, Alabama. After 15 successful years in the television and technology industries, I decided to leverage my business leadership experience and turn my passion for travel, hospitality, systems, and technology into a full-time venture.

As a Southern boy, Orange Beach was a frequent vacation destination for my family and I, and we created so many great memories here over the years. My wife, Laura, and I continued this tradition while dating, and I popped the question right here on the shores of Orange Beach.

We now call this amazing place home, and I get to spend my days helping property owners maximize the potential of their vacation and investment homes.

Laura supports our community as a teacher at Orange Beach Elementary School and lends her eye for detail to creating a high-end guest experience.

What We Love About Orange Beach

In our free time, you may find us walking the coastline, exploring Gulf State Park, or getting a workout in at the Orange Beach Rec Center. We also love dining out on occasion at our favorite spots, like CoastAL and Zeke’s Restaurant, both of which boast amazing waterfront views.

Corie & Naomi Thompson

Local Partners - Gulf Shores

About US

Hi, we're Corie and Naomi Thompson, local partners and owners of Grand Welcome Gulf Shores.  With a deep-rooted love for this coastal paradise, we’ve decided to channel our passion for real estate and hospitality into helping property owners and guests alike.

We both grew up vacationing here so as homeowners in Gulf Shores ourselves, we understand the unique charm and appeal of this area.  

Whether you’re a property owner looking for reliable management or a guest seeking a memorable getaway, we’re here to make it happen.

What We Love About Orange Beach

We love to visit the Wharf in Orange Beach. They have many family-friendly events throughout the year. Our favorite is riding the Ferris wheel together for the excitement and stunning views of the Gulf Coast.  After a full day of playing and shopping, we normally end up at the Villaggio Grille for their daily specials or wood fired pizza.

Get more bookings & maximize your Orange Beach vacation rental investment property

We'd love to buy you a coffee or meet you at your property to understand your goals and show you how our local expertise and hands-on approach can bring in more bookings, generate more 5-star guest reviews, and earn you more income.

How much do vacation rental management companies charge in Orange Beach?

The typical fee for short term rental property management in the area ranges from 15-30% depending on the level of management and service provided.

Are short term vacation rentals allowed in Orange Beach?

Orange Beach is a popular vacation destination and very friendly to short term rentals. However, there are some important regulations to be aware of depending on the location and zoning of the property. There are also business license requirements. To take the headache out of managing your own vacation rental, you can partner with us to ensure compliance with all regulations.✍️ We take the headache out of managing your own vacation rental by ensuring your property adheres to any existing or new short-term rental regulations, keeping your investment secure and your guests delighted. Let us handle the details so you can enjoy the benefits of owning a vacation rental worry-free!

Do I need to collect and remit taxes for vacation rentals in Orange Beach?

The City of Orange Beach collects a 10% lodging tax, Baldwin County collects a 2% lodging tax, and the State of Alabama collects a 4% lodging tax. These taxes are paid by guests when making a reservation. Some online travel agencies (OTAs), like Airbnb, remit some of these lodging taxes to city, county, and/or state agencies on your behalf while other OTAs do not assist with tax remittance. By partnering with us, you can avoid the complication altogether and allow us to remit all taxes paid by guests on your behalf. 🏡 To streamline this process and ensure full compliance, you can let us handle the tax collection and remittance on your behalf. We collaborate closely with Grand Welcome corporate and a local tax professional to collect and remit taxes on behalf of properties under our management.  This approach allows you to focus on your other priorities while we handle the essential tax responsibilities, simplifying your life as a property owner. If you have any tax questions related to short term rentals in Orange Beach, feel free to contact us. For full disclosure, we are not CPAs or tax professionals, but we work with the best in the business and local community to ensure compliance, and we'd be happy to help!
