About Erin

We live in Birmingham, AL and have 2 boys and 1 girl. We purchased this unit as a place for us to come and create wonderful memories with our family. We hope you enjoy our 2nd home as much as we do.

Erin purchased this condo in 2012

Why Erin chose Alabama

We chose to buy at Gulf Shores Plantation due to the true beauty of the location. The beaches are very large and have beautiful sand dunes. We also love that the beaches are not crowded. We also wanted a place that we felt was safe for our children to play.

What makes this condo unique

Our kids really enjoy the pools. The lagoon style pool in front of our building is one of the nicest pools we have been to. We also love having The Connections eatery close to our building with great food and Starbucks coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved our Vacation!! The decor in the room was beautiful! This was our first time to Gulf Shores and it will not be our last!! Erin, was great to work with! She answered every question we had and was more than eager to assist in any way! The condo and grounds were very well kept.

The view was good

  • 2 of 5

The view was good but as someone else said that left a review, the sliding glass door in the bedroom won't open, the screen on the living room sliding glass door is broken, also, the carpet has several messed up places, the laundry room area is awful, most machines wouldn't work, the location of the indoor pool is terrible especially when u are there during a tropical storm and its pouring and high winds your entire stay and u have to walk way across the parking lot outside to get to the indoor pool. Not the owners fault but still something to think about when deciding to stay here.

I highly recommend this condo.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Erin's place several times. It is clean, decorated cute, and convenient to everything at the plantation. She even has beach toys for the kids and a great rolling cart for carrying all your supplies down to the beach. Erin is so easy to work with. I highly recommend staying in her condo!

We enjoyed this beautiful facility. The owners gave us great recommendations on things for the kids to do and the Sassy Bass (on site) was fabulous!

Take a couple rolls of quarters if you want laundry service!!

  • 3 of 5

Unit overall was satisfactory, but had some minor issues...a couple of the towels and bed linens needed replacing. One tore into shreds when I bathed with it. The sliding door in the master bedroom couldn't be opened and the screen on the slider in the living area was in need of replacement. Also, the filter on the air unit should have been changed months ago. On the plus side all kitchen appliances were clean and worked very well, also all TV's etc... worked well.

The laundry area desperately needs a coin change machine. All machines are programed to use a credit or debit card, but didn't work. One of the tenants said the server needed to be reset, bur as the office was closed, there was no one to perform the service. Quarters had to be used, but there wasn't any place to get change. Same tenant told me the HOA removed the machine because it malfucntioned and decided not to replace. Pretty dumb move on their part considering they also had a vending room, but no change. We also had to leave very early when we checked out...needed ice for a couple of coolers. Only ice machine at our building was under cabana in pool area and locked until 7am. Had to go to building next door and use their machine in parking area. Overall it was a good stay. My granddaughter loved both the outdoor and indoor pools, but too many little inconveniences that could be avoided with some minor changes.
