About Donna Hill

Welcome! I bought this condo a few months before buying my studio efficiency at the same location. Gulf Shores Plantation has so much to offer and this condo has the best view you will find.

I loved the area so much I moved here 7 years ago and wonder why I didn't make the move 30 years ago! I love being a local and enjoy being a part of your vacation planning process.

Donna Hill purchased this condo in 2004

Why Donna Hill chose Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores Plantation has so many amenities something for everyone. There is also more beach area than in the heart of Gulf Shores and I love the private location.

What makes this condo unique

The view is fantastic!!! The view is what drew me to this condo and it draws repeats guests year after year. December 2016 we renovated with fresh paint, new comforters, pillows, shower curtain, blankets, 55" flat screen in the living area, 32" flat screen in bedroom, new dining bistro set, patio tile, and a new sleeper sofa with an upgraded gel mattress. Being second floor we have a view of 2 pools and tons of beach!!!!!

Lovin Every Minute Of It!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this same condo last year for our honeymoon and this year for our first anniversary and hope to make it a tradition. We have nothing but great things to say about the complex, this condo, and the owner Donna who has gone out of her way to make sure we have a great time and has given us tips on where to eat and shop! The view is perfect and we love the tile and granite. This is off the beaten path and with this view and easy reservation process there is nothing else to do but relax. Thanks again...

Best Trip

  • 5 of 5

We have been to the beach all of my 32 years of life! This stay was by far one of my best experiences! The condo is very cozy and felt like home! The greatest part of all was the owner! Donna is AMAZING! She will respond to you within the hour about anything you need! We will most definitely be back to book with her in this condo!

Fall Break Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the PERFECT Fall Break Getaway for two tired teachers and our five children. Donna was fabulous to work with from the start. She made everything easy - from booking to check-in. The condo was clean, well stocked, and nicely decorated. The surrounding property was beautiful. There numerous pools and hot-tubs provided good entertainment, but nothing compared the splendor of the uncrowded, white sandy beach. We spent nearly every waking minute soaking up the sun and enjoyed perfect weather each day. We look forward to returning again soon.

Honeymoon Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect choice for our honeymoon. Donna the owner even had cookies on the counter as a wedding gift! The condo was clean, beachy, and it had the best view we loved it! The whole place was just what we wanted several pools and we used the hot tubs. It is a big place we didnt use anything else just stayed in our condo and the pool right in front of our building. We got a great price and will be back next year.

Dirty and Run Down!

  • 1 of 5

After reading all the reviews for this property, and seeing the price, this place sounded great! Boy, were we wrong!! While the view of the ocean is nice, the rundown condo and surrounding properties were less than appealing. We have rented MANY properties over the years and never felt the need to write a negative review! First off, Donna was very quick to help us book our stay, but that is the only help she provided. We arrived to a dirty, rundown condo. The couch in the main living area was FILTHY and uncomfortable. We had to lay down clean blankets over it to feel comfortable sitting on it. The pull-out sleeper looked 100 years old and was filthy as well. Our daughter was upset that this was her bedding for the week. No sheets were provided for the sleeper sofa, even though it states that linens are included. The junior bunks were stiff boards built into a hallway, with campground quality mattresses. No ladder was there to utilize the top bunk. Under the kitchen sink, the pots and pans were in disarray, and dirty, some were even filled with gross old water! The stove had 2 working burners of the 4 available. We emailed Donna about the issue of the stove and heard nothing for 2 days!! ONLY responding when I sent a not very pleasant follow-up email. She stated that she had to order the part and never offered to send someone out to repair it. She had no problem responding and charging us for our stay within 10 minutes of emailing about the availability of the property, but was nowhere to be found when we had an issue. We are not fancy, but we expect our stay to be clean and this expectation was not met. We were so disgusted, that we ended our stay 2 days early. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!
