great resort, tolerable unit
"Positives: the resort is great - several nice pools, beautiful beach, unit in a generally quiet part of the resort. The owner allowed us to check in one night earlier than what was negotiated in our reservation. Gulf Shores Plantation Resort is ideal for families with kids as there is so much to do.
Negatives: this unit is not well-maintained. Peeling wallpaper, sagging, creaky floor, old, dirty kitchen cupboards. Our first impression was a large spill on the master bath floor along with a nasty, smelly bath rug and black mold growing on the floor trim next to the bathtub. The other first impression was an old salt shaker in the kitchen containing salt with a bit of rice. There were dead meal worms in the shaker; it went straight to the trash. The owner, whom we called right away, arranged to have his personal housekeeper come in the next day to do a thorough cleaning. We got over the initial shock and felt more comfortable after the housekeeper came to clean. This unit really shows its age despite a few updates like a nice microwave and ceiling fan."

"We stayed here from June 6th-13th, it was incredible. We were able to go straight to the room when we arrived, and we were about 45 mins early. The view from the balcony was wonderful, even seen dolphins, manta rays. . The balcony was big enough to set up cornhole boards. Wonderful view, very spacious condo. Very clean, friendly staff, security. We stayed on the 19th floor, so we thought the elevator would be a hassle, we didn't have any problems. Walking distance for everything and everyone. We will be making arrangements to come back here next year. Thanks Eileen for all the help and keeping me informed about everything."

"The condo was just as described, and was warm and cozy for a romantic weekend with my fiance'. We can't wait to return for more relaxing time in the Desert! I do quite a bit of travel for work purposes and use Homeaway often and the staff at Gone South were easy to work with, and organized. The overall experience was 5 star!!"
