About the property


Our condo is directly on the Gulf of Mexico and the beach is only a few steps from the condo. The condo is conveniently located just a short drive from down town Gulf Shores. 'Our Little Get-A-Way' is perfect for a couple or small family. Additionally, since the condo is located on the first floor, you will not have to wait for an elevator. Enjoy the panoramic views of the Gulf from the living area or balcony. From the moment you open the door you will know this is not an ordinary rental unit. We love the condo and treat it as our second home. The large balcony is comfortably furnished for relaxing and enjoying the view. The Plantation has been voted as a top family destination in Southern Living Magazine. Gulf Shores Plantation is a family friendly resort complex with 24/7 on site security. The 4,000 feet of private unspoiled beaches offers many activities, amenities, as well as spectacular sunsets. This resort is next door to the nationally-ranked Kiva Dunes Golf Course and offers numerous onsite amenities. Perfectly situated, the Plantation is minutes away from the restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, yet you are away from the over-developed crowded beaches of the strip.

About Chris Scott

Our family has vacationed at the Plantation for 14 years. Some years we would make several trips down and we fell in love with the area. We always told ourselves that we should purchase a condo here and finally after several years of hard work, we made our dreams come true. We would like to welcome you to our home away from home, From Penny(my wife) Chris(myself) and our daughters Cheyenne and Malia... my you make memories like we have.

Chris Scott purchased this condo in 2017

Why Chris Scott chose Gulf Shores

We purchased this unit because, lets be honest...I don't like the stairs. This unit has never been on a rental program and its within viewing distance of the pool and beaches. We are in the process of updating this condo with a new bath and the kitchen will be soon to come.

Great beach access

  • 5 of 5

The condo complex is very easy to find and well kept. They have onsite security which made us feel safe. The condo we stayed in is small but worked well for the 2 of us. The bathrooms, bedrooms, and common areas of the condo are all updated and very comfortable. The new smart tv in the living area worked great for watching Netflix in the evening. You can sit outside and watch the beach or walk a very short distance to the boardwalk to access the beach. The beach was great and they have a service to rent you beach chairs and umbrellas. When you rent the chairs they will come by throughout the day and move the umbrella to give more or less shade depending upon your needs. There is a small convenience store about a half mile down the road that has a few necessities should you need them. We took a short drive into gulf shores and went to the wharf, dolphin watching tour, and souvenir shopping. All communication with Chris was great and timely. We had a small issue with the smoke detector and it was immediately addressed and he followed up after to be sure we were happy. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Good Gulf View...Somewhat Makes Up for the Condo

  • 1 of 5

The title pretty much sums it up for this unit. Other than the Gulf view, here are the cons:

1. Dishwashing powder on counter, but no dishwasher.

2. The following items have always been available and standard in all condos we have rented over the years: hair dryer, iron, ironing board, dishwashing liquid, tea pitcher, alarm clock, measuring cup and trash bags. None were included with this unit, and we had to go into Gulf Shores to purchase our own.

3. The bed was a double bed, which creaked horribly every time a person moved.

4. You could not open the refrigerator door all the way due to the club chair next to the couch.

5. You could not open the microwave oven door if you were using the coffeemaker.

6. The toaster had to be put in one of the dining table chairs if you had the coffeemaker turned on.

7. Two of the balcony chairs were broken.

8. The kitchen countertop was painted black, and in poor condition.

Positive items:

1. The Gulf view.

2. Large, curved screen TV...but, no instructions on how to use it.

3. Bathroom was updated.

4. Damage deposit was promptly refunded.

We have stayed at this property before, and did not experience any of the issues we did with this unit. We liked being near the pool and the beach boardwalk, but the value for our money was sorely lacking, even at high season. We will more than likely never return to this property.
