About Jenifer Duncan

This is our family vacation home. We love sharing this wonderful place with others so that they can enjoy our little piece of Heaven! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Jenifer Duncan purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jenifer Duncan chose Alabama

We have vacationed in Gulf Shores for 20 years and had a few bad experiences with condos that were not what was advertised. We were blessed to have an opportunity to purchase a condo here (at Gulf Shores Plantation) in Sept 2000 and this condo a few years later!

What makes this condo unique

The main reason we love 'the Plantation' is because it is a safe, family-friendly resort. There are so many things to do and a HUGE beach - with less people (than the other condo buildings in Gulf Shores). It is a fun place to spend time with our family and friends!

Can't Say Enough Good About This Place!

  • 5 of 5

We go to Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan at least once a year and have been going consistently for about 7 years. We've stayed in other condos around Fort Morgan like Martinique and Beach Club but never liked the stuffy feel. We love Gulf Shores Plantation for it's beautiful grounds, awesome beachfronts, and amazing pools. What I personally loved about this condo was that it was clean but not overly fancy. So many of the condos are perfect and we have four small boys. We don't need perfect. We need confortable. The beds, linens, and everything were completely clean and spotless, but it isn't loaded with breakable decorations, granite countertops, etc. It's just perfect for a family. And the price cannot be beat! The view is excellent and the higher styled outdoor seating is perfect for seeing over the banister and directly out onto the pool and ocean. We have already booked this condo for next year. After 7 years of searching, we think we've found our spot! P.S. our boys loved the spiral staircase!

The view is what we wanted and needed. Had a wonderful time. So many activities to choose from to participate in. Loved the puzzles that were left out for anyone to do. We had the best time and would definitely come back. Thanks for sharing your little bit of heaven on earth with us.

Would stay here again!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first time to Gulf Shores and staying at the Plantation. Overall we loved it and would come back again. The resort itself is obviously a little older but it didn't feel like it. The grounds/pools/boardwalk/beach etc were well kept and very clean. My only complaint about the resort would be that the fitness equipment in the fitness center is older and a little run down.

The condo itself worked great for myself and three daughters. There was plenty of room and we never really felt crowded. There are a few minor things wrong with the condo but nothing that ruined our vacation!! The condo was clean when we arrived and there were plenty of towels for everyone (which is a plus for 4 girls)! Plenty of pots/pans/dishes/etc. Great view from the balcony!

I liked that the resort was away from all the tourism that you find in Gulf Shores. If we ever come back, we will definitely stay in this resort again and probably this condo!

We love our vacations at Gulf Shores Plantations, however, this time we were a bit disappointed with the upkeep of the buildings, pools, grounds, and beach.

We stayed in the peach building.

-The halls often had a funky and unpleasant odor.

-The halls (on several floors) had excessive sand in the carpets (all week).

-The hot tubs had a dingy oily film all week, especially the one to the right. We went every day, at different times, and found the dingy oily film to be present.

-The wall outside of Connections Cafe is in need of repair. The mortar is cracked and a large 15 inch or so piece of the mortar is broken off.

Our condo (which we loved) has an excellent view and is well equipped for renters! However...

-Had a funky odor when we arrived, sprayed lots of deodorizer.

-The floors were very sandy, so we vacuumed them.

-The bathrooms were cleaned but there was hair still on the walls, shower curtain and mirror.

-The shower curtain in the master bathroom needs to be cleaned or replaced. It is dirty at the bottom and has a faint sour smell.

-The hall wall outside of the air conditioner unit has been repaired, however it needs repairs again.

The grounds are beautifully landscaped and well cared for. However...

-Trash cans were overflowing on several occasions.

-We often saw trash on the grounds around the Connections Cafe.

-On two days, not all of the bar-b-Que pits had been cleaned out when we went to grill at lunchtime.

The Plantations have several nice pools that accommodate many people and we saw staff cleaning them daily, Rain or Sunshine. However...

-The pool sides, especially the clover shaped had a dingy oily film, basically the whole time.

-We choose a family vacation at the Plantations with several young children because we found it to be so family friendly in the past. However, the pools were often taken over by baseball teams, who were also staying over. Them staying there was not a concern, only that they seemed to "take over" the area and were too rowdy for the little ones to also be in the pool.

The beach is beautiful!!! However...

-Was a bit littered with trash. Trash cans were overflowing on several days. this proved to be a teaching opportunity for our grandchildren old enough to understand...We instilled in them to leave nothing but foot prints at the beach. Every time that we would go in from the beach, we asked them to help us pick up at least 2 pieces of trash to throw away. Great lesson for them :)

Great view

  • 3 of 5

The view could not have been better. Most of my time at the condo was spent on the patio. The elevator was always quick so being on the 6th floor was not a problem. The resort's amenities were awesome and the beach was not crowded. The unit was not the cleanest and the patio door from the living room needs attention; however, the doors from the bedrooms worked fine.
