About Nita and Bob Tolar

Originally from Birmingham, Alabama, we transferred to Olathe, Kansas in 1975 and lived there for 11 years. In 1986 we moved to Marietta,, Georgia with a job transfer and have lived here for 31 years. We raised a son and a daughter and now have 2 beautiful grandchildren and 2 amazing step-grandsons. We are both retired and love our get-a-way time at the condo.

Nita and Bob Tolar purchased this condo in 1998

Why Nita and Bob Tolar chose Gulf Shores

We visited Gulf Shores many years before we purchased our condo at Gulf Shores. During our search for the unit that met our needs as well as providing the ultimate vacation for our family we looked at many places. After looking at the Gulf Shores Plantation, we fell in love with the beautifully manicured grounds, the amazing amenities and the family environment. We think you will, too.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best things to us about the Plantation is that there are seven pools, including an indoor pool for those days it rains or it's too hot for sitting on the beach. With that many pools they are not overcrowded. The tennis courts are well maintained and basketball goals, horseshoes and shuffle board when you want a break from the beautiful beaches and pools. Kiva Dunes is one of the highest rated golf courses in the southeast and it is adjacent to the Plantation. Something for everyone.

Perfect for a Family! Dolphins !!

  • 5 of 5

Great price for a week in a perfect 2 bedroom 2 bath condo in resort complex on the gulf. Approximately equidistant between historic Fort Morgan (and the ferry) and the Gulf Shores strip. Staying here was like spending a week at a family member / friend's condo.

Owner was extremely responsive when we had a concern arise. Owner provided same-day SOLUTION to an A/C issue and had it resolved within a few hours while we were on the beach with no negative impact on our vacation.

We are a family with a small child and it was a comfortable stroll to the beach from the condo. There is an indoor pool right by the property, and then two outdoor pools right by the boardwalk to the beach.

We like to cook our own meals from scratch, and the kitchen worked out very well. We picked up fresh seafood and had all of the pots and pans to make the magic happen.

A+ property if you're looking for a nice, relaxing beach-oriented getaway!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in your condo and the beach. The pool was invited too for the kiddos. The week we were there there were a lot of jelly fish. They didn't keep us away!!! We hope to visit another time in the near future! Thank for sharing your home away from home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive response. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will plan to stay with us again. I know the jellyfish always seem to be the peskiest around this time of the year. We appreciate you making the beast of that situation!!!

Comfort and Affordable

  • 5 of 5

Adorably decorated and very "homey" feel! Great deal for the price! From style to technology, everything was up to date! All you need is your smile and your swimsuit! We enjoyed our time there and would go back whenever we can! Owner very attentive and easy to work with. Had unique issue with AC and owner was "on it" and had it repaired while we enjoyed cooling off in one of the many pools. Location was perfect! Far enough away and yet close enough to what you needed. Privacy and seclusion!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kid words. We appreciate your patience during the process of getting the A/C back up and running!! Please contact us again. We would love the have you stay any time.

Very affordable

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the condo justice!! We were glad that we had a good condo cause the weather was horrible and we ended up spending a lot of time in it!! It was very clean and had all comforts of home including washer and dryer. Nita was wonderful to work with, keep in touch and made sure all was good. We look forward to coming back but hopefully with sunny weather. Thank you Nita!!!!

Owner's Response: Renee, thanks so much for your review. I feel badly that your week at the beach was such a rainy one. Sounds like you made the best of it. I certainly hope you will plan to come back and I'll try to order up some sunshine for you! We appreciate nice guests like you. Bob and Nita
