Erik Nist, 38, Fairhope

Occupation: Nist is president and owner of Alabama Beach Vacation Rentals in Gulf Shores.

The Press-Register reported in July that Nist and his wife, Anna Lisa, had not received a check from BP for lost rental income from two condos they own. And Nist was disputing the amount of the only check he had received for his vacation rental management business.

Outlook: Erik Nist said that it looks like business is beginning to rebound. He said the snowbird season was positive, March was solid and spring break has been good. “We’re hoping we can move on, have a great year and never look back,” he said.

Claims process: Nist said that he has received about 40 percent of what his business should have earned last year. The Gulf Coast Claims Facility, said Nist, offered to award a final payment of $25,000. “It’s a mockery,” Nist said, adding that the family has hired a lawyer. “I’m not going to let them get away with the satisfaction of thinking they are fair.”

    You don’t really want to invite Tourists down to the world’s most contaminated beaches, do you? They don’t receive the news that we just received yesterday, May 12, from the US Food and Drug Administration, that there is a cholera outbreak being realized from New Orleans to Apalachicola. You now know this too, so step on up to the plate and speak with honor and dignity. It’s your time to shine!
    Peace Out!

  2. This is a very concerning issue, and I’m happy to have found a news source that is keeping an eye on these vital numbers. It’s an ongoing issue, and local property owners shouldn’t be punished for BP’s mistake. For my last vacation in Orange Beach, I contacted local realtors and they were very helpful in addressing my concerns about my family’s safety and having me know that they run a fair business for everyone involved.
