Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

GO HOME RELAXED. Come and enjoy our unit at the Gulf Shores Plantation. A stay here will allow you to enjoy the beach as it should be. Gulf Shores Plantation has all the amenities one would expect to find at a resort yet provides a great getaway from the crowds. This is a spacious complex designed with families in mind. One can relax and enjoy a peaceful stroll along the shore watching for dolphins. There are multiple activities available on site including horseshoes, lighted tennis and basketball courts. The condo has 2 outdoor pools, one indoor pool, a sauna, a steam room and a large indoor hot tub. There are numerous outstanding golf courses very close to the complex. The nationally recognized Kiva Dunes course is located at the Plantation. The beautiful Peninsula course and The Gulf Shores Golf Club are both less than 10 miles away. You will pass these courses on the road out to the Plantation.

Our second floor unit is directly on the gulf. We feel it is the ideal unit. Our tiled balcony overlooks the beach and the most beautiful pool in the entire complex. Whether it is coffee in the morning or cocktails in the afternoon, the view from our balcony can't be beat. The unit is Wi-Fi ready in case you want to tell your friends what they are missing. Our unit has a 42 inch TV and DVD in the den. We also have a 32 inch TV in the bedroom and a CD/radio for your convenience. Towels and sheets are provided. It has a COMFORTABLE queen size bed, a queen size sofa sleeper and a berth bed suitable for a child. The upper berth has been covered to make it easier to store luggage, etc. We also have a stand up pantry to store those snacks that are such a necessity at the beach. We have a dishwasher. The laundry is conveniently located very near our unit.

We were renters long before we were owners. We have kept that in mind as we furnished and decorated our condo. We attempted to make our unit one we would enjoy visiting. We hope and believe you will also.

If we can be of any help, please let us know.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Debbie and Rocky - we had a great time at your condo and the area in general!! We could not believe the miles and miles of white sandy beaches - we definitely were not expecting that - beaches yes, but not that expansive!! We loved the location of the Plantation and the view from your condo -my husband rarely "sits down and relaxes" and I found him out on your deck several times "just enjoying the view"! We arrived late on Sunday but we did go walking around for a little bit. We slept in on Monday - it was raining in the morning anyway - but then in the afternoon, we went to Bon Secour wildlife refuge, did some hiking on their trails, and then we went to Fort Morgan and toured the fort - enjoyed both of those things very much. We ate at LuLu's on Monday night (what a place!!) and got to see and meet Brent - love his music!! Tuesday was a beautiful day - we did some beach walking in the morning, took the ferry to Dauphin Island, toured the estuarium, then we drove to Gulf State Park and ate at Live Bait that evening. On Wednesday, we took some time driving to different areas as we headed back to New Orleans for our flight home later that afternoon.

Thanks again - it was all you said it was - and we hope to be back!!!

The beach is lovely!

  • 3 of 5

The owners of the condo are wonderful! The view is stunning. The property and grounds itself however are in need of repair. Potholes all over the parking lots and driveways! The boardwalk to the beach needs to be replaced and our room had no eating utensils! One spoon was all I found! Overall good experience

Owner's Response: Don't understand no utensils. The drawer under the bar above where the pots and pans are kept has 12 forks, 12 salad forks, 12 spoons, 12 soup spoons, 12 knives, a meat serving fork, 4 large serving spoons, a sugar spoon and a butter knife. I know these were there because I came in after you. Very sorry you did not find them. I have always hated to rent where the utensils are scarce so I go overboard in that area. I agree on the parking lot and boardwalk. Our board is in the process of getting estimates and plan to address both of these issues as soon as possible. Hopefully soon!

This condo was perfect for my hubby and I! The beach and pool were beautiful and easy to access. We had all the furnishings we needed. Everything was clean and as described. I would choose this for a couples get away again!

Great location. Nice pools. Good environment.

  • 4 of 5

It was a very easy process to book. The room is in a great location. Easy to move from the car to the room or the room to the beach. The grounds were nice. The owners were quick to respond when we needed to talk to them. The only negative is the cleaning crew. When we walked in and kicked our shoes off by the door you could feel large amounts of sand on the floor. There were fingernail clippings in the bowl on the end table. There was hair in the door of the fridge. The worst part was mold in the water chamber of the coffee pot. We just bought a cheap one at Walmart and I cleaned up the rest of the mess. When we went to use dishes I had to wash everything we used because they were less than acceptable. I guess that is expected when you must wash your own dishes before you check out because not everyone has the same opinion of clean. I did inform the owners and they did offer to have the cleaning crew come though I declined because they didnt do so hot in the first place. All in all if everything would have been a little more clean, the stay would have been perfect.

Owner's Response: Sorry to hear about the condition of the condo upon your arrival. We have used this cleaning service for several years and this is the first negative comment we have had concerning the cleaning. Usually comments are positive on the cleanliness of the condo. Your comments were immediately forwarded to our cleaning service so they could address the issue. Debbie/Rocky

Amazing Anniversary Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Debbie and Rocky have a wonderful place here and are very thorough hosts. This condo was exactly what we wanted for our trip. Everything was better than pictured online. Beautiful views and great restaurants close by. If you want to get away to the beach to relax and not deal with the crowds and traffic of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, this condo is ideal. We will definitely be staying here again!! Thank you Debbie and Rocky for everything!!
