About John Linn

We are a family of 3 from Birmingham, AL and like everyone, we love the beach! We share our condo with visitors at below market rates to help us pay the bills!

John Linn purchased this condo in 2002

Why John Linn chose Alabama

This area is tranquil and serene. It's a good place to go to the beach to relax but escape the crowds and drunk or rowdy students.

What makes this condo unique

Gulf Shores Plantation is on Fort Morgan Road close to several restaurants, and also close enough to the amusements, restaurants, shopping and night life 'in town' that it is all easily accessible with a 10-15 minute drive, but far enough away that you can escape back to our family oriented resort with its wide sandy beaches, and unspoiled dunes and nature. Unlike what has resulted from the over-building and over-crowding 'in town' in 'Gulf Shores proper', Orange beach, and West beach. It's like the beach was when I was a kid. Just a great place where the kids are safe, there is no through-traffic, or 'girls/boys gone wild'.

Very nice

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. The condo was a perfect size for our family (2 adults & 3 children, ages 14, 12, and 1). Beautiful view and it was great having the beach right next to the building. There was plenty to entertain the kids when it was too cool to get in the water....basketball, tennis, shuffleboard, etc. No restaurants within walking distance (at least with a toddler in tow!) but it was a short drive into town and the seclusion from college students on spring break was good for a family trip. The check-in staff was very nice and John was quick to respond to any questions I had. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is plumbing issues....nothing we had to call a plumber for, but we had to use a plunger several times. This was not a huge surprise as instructions to use a plunger before calling maintenance were in the letter we received with our keys. Can't beat the price or location though and we would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for the review. I am so sorry you experienced difficulty with the toilet flushing. It seems to be the nature of rental property and people flushing things they shouldn't. In 16 years of renting the condos, we have never personally experienced flushing problems during our stays, but have on occasion on arrival had to plunge to clear someone else's blockages in toilets and drains. Again, when people are on vacation, they flush things they wouldn't at home.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We were fortunate to find this Plantation Dunes Condo. What an exceptional value this unit is. The unit is spacious with a new updated kitchen. There are several pools to choose from and we never had a problem finding space at one of the pools. The beach access is located close to the pools with a wonderful beach to enjoy either for walks or to rent a chair and umbrella for the day. The balcony has comfortable seating and excellent views to enjoy. Sun rises from the balcony in the morning and sunsets on the beach make a perfect beginning and end to your day.

Stop on your way in for groceries and supplies for your stay. Dining options are limited but it is a nice ride into Gulf Shores or Orange Beach for dinner. There are also grills that you can use to prepare your meals.

If you are looking for a quiet area away from the crowds Where you can find nature trails, historical fort and wonderful beach to walk this is a good choice.
