We enjoyed a peaceful, quiet, relaxing week at the beach. Sunsets were witnessed from our balcony as we dined alfresco. A well equipped kitchen allowed our regular eating plans to stay within our dietary needs. I found the basket boxes particularly handy for our provisions and personal items. Good bed.

Pleasant short walks to the surfs edge was a daily treat. The hosing station was also a daily pleasure. Any sand we did bring into our retreat was easily swept up as the home was ready for all types of fun.

Jan Hammond was professional and sincere in making our trip to the Gulf an experience to remember. We felt at home in her condo and also safe with the location. We would deal with her and her locations again. Thanks to her, our trip was memorable.

First time in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

First let me start off by saying what a pleasure it is working with Jan. From the time you contact her to book the condo to the time you leave the condo, she is there for you every step of the way. Working with her was a pleasure!!

The condo is EXACTLY as pictured!! One of our favorite parts was that we were able to see the gulf right from the living room. It was beautiful! Everyone that we encountered around the area were so friendly! We spent out days at the beach looking for sea shells, boogie boarding and swimming. We spent our nights crab hunting and laying on the pull out couch watching a movie together. It was a wonderful family vacation! I would definitely go back again! Such great memories!

Best vacation yet!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my kids first time seeing, feeling, experiencing the ocean and the beach. It was a blast! Jan's condo is just adorable and has everything you you're home away from home. She has it decorated so cute and cozy. My girls loved the bunk beds! The view is incredible and just steps away from the beach. Everyone was so nice there and respectful of our things that were on the beach. There are so many fun things to do at the condo (beach, pools, crab hunting at night (my girls loved this), grilling, boogie boarding and just RELAXING--tons more too) I loved working with Jan. I feel like I've known her forever and she made sure we had a great time from beginning to end. I can't recommend her condo enough! Thank you Jan from the bottom of my heart! You are amazing <3 We'll be back!!!

Our beach our condo!!

  • 5 of 5

I could never say enough good things about Jan or this condo that has become like our very own. Who knew six years ago while looking for a short weekend get away for my family would turn into our favorite beach spot, not to mention I now have a new friend. Jan is so organized and does everything to ensure that your vacation is the very best it can be. We love the plantation, it's perfect for families and everyone else looking for a great place to stay. It is away from the crowd and we love that, but also not too far to drive back to eat at the many popular places. Beach is never crowded. My husband loves to fish when we visit and my son loves jumping the waves and "riding" them too! We love this condo and plan to continue making memories each year here. We asked our son if he would rather go anywhere else and he said no, he loves "our" beach and "our" condo. He is very comfortable here and we have made countless memories through the years. We have even had the pleasure of making two beach trips some years!!! Without a doubt our family will continue staying at the plantation and renting from Jan.
