"Spent a week in October. I look for three things in a vacation rental: location, condition of the rental, and cleanliness. I found that in this vacation. For location, you can't beat being right on the beach in a private home, while also enjoying all of the amenities of the Plantation (pools, tennis, workout, etc). The view from the deck is the best where you can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets while being right on the water. The condition of the rental was good. In talking with the owners, they had just replaced the floor on the main level with new tile and installed new granite countertops in the kitchen. Both looked nice. The rest of the house was in good shape. As for cleanliness, I didn't see any signs of a problem and believe me, I would have noticed. So, it passed my requirements with ease.
The burrs are still around, but the owner is having the drive paved which will correct that minor problem.
Overall, I had a great time and the house fit my needs.... quiet and seclusion when wanted but close to the city when I wanted some entertainment. Enjoy Gulf Shores, I did."

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
The Lemonade Stand was the perfect beach house for our family vacation. It looked just like the pictures on the website showed. It was clean and inviting. We especially liked the kitchen area on both sides of the house. Both kitchens come with 2 dishwashers on each side (for a total of 4 in the house), a large refrigerator, a large ice maker separate from freezer and a separate drink cooler. The pool was also perfect...large enough for all members of our party (24 people) to be in and around the pool at the same time. The beach was just a short walk across the street. The house was well equipped with anything you may want/need for the pool or the beach. The house was also close to restaurants and family fun (putt putt golf, go carts, ice cream, shopping, and water activities). Our favorite place was The Hang Out - good food and fun for all family members, young & older. The owner contacted us on move in day to ensure we were getting settled and to see if there were any issues that needed to be addressed (there weren't any). Our only "complaint" if you want to call it that was the lack of a 1/2 bath closer to the pool area. It is on the 2nd level with the kitchen. It would have been nice to have an outside bathroom closer to the pool. The other "issue" was this house has a lot of stairs to climb. If you are on the 3rd floor it is 57 steps from the bottom up to the third floor. So we put all the younger people up there. Older guests would have a problem with that many steps. We knew about the steps going in and those of us on the top floor took it as a step challenge each day. Overall our family loved the Lemonade Stand and would rent it again. We would recommend this house to family and friends that are looking for a large house to accommodate a large family. Thank you Geoff & Susan! Our family had a great week!"

"Blue Dolphin 2 was everything we wanted and more for an awesome vacation. The home was very spacious and comfortable. Very liveable. The yard was AMAZING, with the heated saltwater pool, hot tub, tether ball and cornhole game. The sand and palm trees made you feel like you were on the beach. Enjoyed birds and saw a Bald Eagle. Anywhere you wanted to go eat, shop or the beach was within 15 minutes. Great places to eat nearby. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt like we had made new good friends"
