This house was right on the beach, so you could easily meander to and from as well as enjoy amazing views and hear the ocean from the house. Also conveniently next to a pool and hot tub. There were multiple tennis courts our family was able to play on daily. Outlet shopping easily accessible for the rare rainy day/recovering from a sunburn. The house itself was clean, easy to fit a large family, and thee owners were easy to contact and made setting this up a breeze. I would definitely return and tell others about this place!
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.
I stayed here for a week and couldn't have asked for anything better! You can hear the waves from the house and relax on the large porches! The boardwalk, pool, hot tub, and grilling equipment are just outside the front door! Couldn't ask for anything more!
The perfect beach vacation! The house is gorgeous with plenty of windows and balconies on both floors looking out to the beach. It is big and open, which was perfect for our family for enjoying the evenings together. House was clean and the owner was very sweet and easy to work with. The resort was great with multiple pools, tennis courts, basketball, sand volleyball and a small workout room - there was plenty for everyone to keep themselves entertained. Every morning we went for a run, played tennis as a group then spent the rest of the am at the beach and afternoon at the pool. Like I said, the perfect vacation! Neat state park down the road. Did I mention the awesome beach view?!
We spent a little over a week at this house and enjoyed every minute. The closeness to the beach(right on it) and pool (about 90 ft) were great. The house is perfect for watching beautiful sunsets and just watching the waves crash on the beach from one of the 2 decks. Everything in the house was great. Had all you would need. Large kitchen, dining area, washer and dryer. It is a perfect house just to go relax and unwind, or as a house to stay while looking at all the sights around Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.
The positive: house has beautiful views of the ocean. It is close to pool and has a gorgeous deck in which to enjoy the views. The owner was available and easy to reach.
When we arrived the cleaning people were just finishing up, which was not a problem. The problem was we had to clean the dirty countertops, table and stove. There were sandburs in the carpet and rug at the front door. We wiped off spill marks on the wall. There was food, dust, puzzle pieces under coffee table and behind sofa.
The listing advertises 3 1/2 baths, but we were never able to locate the half bath.
There is a pool conveniently located near the home, but it was cloudy and dirty. My daughter and daughter-in-law both used the net to clean out bugs each day we used the pool. My grandson came out of the water with a hairball stuck to his back. I spoke to personnel in the Plantation office about the condition of the pool and asked how often it was cleaned. She stated it was not the Plantation's responsibility, it was the 'Associations' responsibility. We never saw anyone clean pool or test chemicals.
The picture of the outside of the home is misleading. The grass and landscaping around the home is quite overgrown. The house is showing wear.
