start your gulf shores beach vacation sooner

Get a jump on your beach vacation by renting a beach house or condo that offers the convenient Express Check-in technology. No need to stop by the rental office or hassle with keys. Check-in is by keyless entry code.

Start Your Gulf Shores Beach Vacation Sooner With Express Check-In

Nearly 600 of Meyer Vacation Rentals’ beach condos and houses in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach and Perdido Key offer a unique and convenient check-in method.

Called Express Check-in, this process allows those renting select vacation properties to access the properties by a keyless entry lock.

With the keyless entry lock, guests can gain direct access to their beach condo or house via code beginning at the 3 p.m. check-in time.

This means there’s no stopping by the office and waiting in line to pick up a key or keys that could be misplaced or are not provided in enough quantity for everyone to have their own. Everyone in your party can use the code without hassle.

When you arrive at your Express Check-In property, simply enter the keyless entry code you received by e-mail or text 24 hours prior to arrival.

Turn the lever toward the hinge of the door while turning the door handle.

You may customize the entry code by entering your assigned code, pressing the # sign, and entering your own six-digit personal code.

Locking the door is easy; simply shut the door and turn the lever toward the hinge.

Mike A. from Manchester, Tenn., said he appreciated the keyless entry option provided by Meyer Vacation Rentals. “I liked the ease of making reservations on the Internet, confirmation by e-mail and keyless entry code by text. It was all quick and accurate.”

Check-out Is Easy, Too

Easy Express Check-in also means easy check-out. You may check out via phone or text message.

To check out via phone, call 855-746-1101 using the phone in the rental property. Follow the phone prompts, and you will complete your check-out process.

To check out via text message, you will receive a text message to the text-enabled number you provided prior to arrival. That text message will automatically be sent to you the night before your departure and will remind you to check out before 10 a.m.

As you are leaving the property, simply reply “check out” to the text message reminder. You will then be checked out. Again, no need to go by the rental office.

Mary W. of Ellenwood, Ga., appreciated the Express Check-In process. “The Express Check-in and check-out worked great for us. We were able to access the property with no problems. We will definitely use your agency for future return visits to the gulf coast. We just may change our mind about purchasing a property on the coast.”

Jane L. of Milan, Tenn., had a similar comment. “The keyless entry system was totally the best experience we have ever had in staying at a condo. No need to worry about who had a key, or if we had locked it in the room. Everyone could get in as needed. Even our young grandchildren were able to unlock the door, much to their delight. Also totally enjoyed printing our own parking passes.”

Express Check-in…so convenient yet so simple!
