About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4-6)

Comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bath condo is located in the family friendly Gulf Shores Plantation. Condo has a great view of the beach/ocean from the front door/breezeway and the balcony has an ocean view and overlooks one of the many pools located on the property. One can walk from the front door to the beach in under five minutes. The indoor pool is a very short walk from the condo door. Our condo is located in Plantation East which grants you exclusive access to the indoor pool and tennis courts. The condo features new mattresses(summer 2013) and a new oven/stove top(summer 2013). Upgrades that have recently been made include a new back door(December 2013) and a new microwave(January 2014).

Miles of sandy beaches with beautiful clear water. The distance from the city guarantees beaches that are not overcrowded which makes it the perfect place to take your family and let your children explore.

The town of Gulf Shores has great shopping(including an outlet mall), restaurants, mini golf courses, zoo and amusement parks. Also, Fort Morgan offers great opportunities to explore and learn the history of the area.

We are excited to share our secluded piece of the beach with you and your family.

Why Jacqueline Litwiniec chose Alabama

We've been vacationing at Gulf Shore Plantation for at least a decade before the opportunity to buy our condo occurred. We will continue to vacation at the plantation for its privacy and seclusion. The miles of gorgeous beaches and the clear water are also a plus. The tennis courts are something we also frequently take advantage of.

What makes this condo unique

This property has plenty of beach. So, even in the the middle of the summer you don't feel overcrowded. There is also a family friendly atmosphere that is associated with Gulf Shore's Plantations. And as previously mentioned our condo association provides you with exclusive access to the indoor pool and tennis courts.

Wish we were still there...

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 had a wonderful time at this condo. The condo is exactly as depicted in the pictures with the exception that there is a new couch.

The kitchen is well equipped and had everything we needed and all appliances worked well. There is plenty of storage space in the closet in the kitchen to store misc. items that you need to get out of the walkway until you need them (cooler, extra case of water, etc).

The beds were extremely comfortable which is something I was concerned about. Bedding was left for the fold-out couch bed along with extra blankets and pillows.

The view is great and there is only one condo between this one and the laundry room and stairs. The elevator is just down the walkway in the other direction. We didn't have any issues getting a luggage cart or grocery cart when we needed them.

We spent so much time on the beach that we didn't visit any of the pools that are available, but there are 2 pools next to this building and also have access to one of the indoor pools at this complex.

We visited the Sassy Bass Island Grill located in the Dunes building of the complex for breakfast on a couple of mornings and it was very good as well as the service. Highly recommend it.

The only issue we had during our visit was the air conditioning went out during on our second day there and we didn't know it until late in the evening. We tried a few things on our own to make sure that it really wasn't working before contacting the owner which made it even later (11:30pm). My husband called and left a message. We received a VRBO message back from the owner at 2:00am saying the would have someone out early that morning to check on it, which they did and got it fixed quickly.

During the AC outage our kids had to sleep on the fold-out bed in the couch area which was fine for our younger son, but our older son was uncomfortable on the fold out bed. The condo does have a box fan in the master bedroom closet which we used in front of the open balcony door to pull in cool air. It kept the living room much cooler than the master bedroom was with only the window open and no air circulation. It would have been nice to have had a second fan to use in this situation.

I am rating this 5 stars because everything was as advertised and the owners response to the AC outage was well above what we expected since it was the middle of the night.

Thank you for the use of your condo.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

The pictures and description matched the real unit. We really loved how close it was to the pools, boardwalk and beach. Kitchen was well stocked. This was our first time in a condo, so we were unprepared with trash bags, laundry soap, etc., but a run to Dollar General fixed that. Wish there were more board games, to occupy rainy days. Big storm rolled through and wiped out WiFi for a while. It also took out the TVs . Plug in bathroom quit working and resetting the breaker didn't help. All of that wasn't really bothersome. The pull out sofa was not suitable for adult sleeping everyday, although I had to sleep on it daily. Very uncomfortable, dirty-full of crumbs, and no bedding. That was my own only big complaint. We loved the keyless lock and hooks by the door. Overall, I would go there again, but only if there was a new sofa sleeper.

Really nice and clean!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the condo was very nice. It was exactly as the pictures showed. Short walk to the beach. Pool was right at the bottom of the stairs, which was nice for when the little ones were tired of playing in the sand. The only downside was it is a little far from town. We did enjoy the not so crowded beach. Would recommend this property to others!!

Great condo at a great price!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at your condo! Location is great! It's about a 20 minute drive from Gulf Shores but worth it to avoid being overcrowded at the beach. There is a Dollar General not far from the condo for any last minute items you may need. Loved the pools! The condo does overlook the parking lot but you still have a nice view of the beach, which is hard to find at a decent price in the summer months. The condo is nicely decorated and well equipped with kitchen supplies. The master shower could use a little work and the only other thing I would of like to have had more of were sheets and pillowcases. There is only 1 extra set available. Thanks for sharing your condo with us!! We enjoyed ever minute of it!!

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

A bit dated, but well-kept & wonderful location (great boardwalk to the beach), especially if you don't want a restaurant meal every night. Tub in "master" really needs to be replaced.
