We LOVED IT! Decorated SOO cute! It had everything we needed. You can park right out front and unload the car. NO parking a mile away and bringing everything up elevators. RIGHT next to 2 pools and the boardwalk to the beach

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this very well maintained condo. It is decorated so cute and had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. It even had a quite a few extra things in the kitchen that you don't typically find in rentals. Very close to the beach and numerous pools. We spent our days relaxing on the beach and by the pools. Very family oriented resort which allowed my three kids to meet new friends daily. Away from the hustle and bustle which we decided we preferred as a family. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners who were very friendly and accommodating.

The property has everything you would need and was very clean and ready when we arrived.

  • 4 of 5

Just what we needed- quiet and relaxing location. The grounds are well kept and the ocean and beach was amazing! The only thing we would have changed was firmer mattresses.

Lots of family-friendly aspects to this condo at The Plantation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo on The Plantation property with our two young kids, ages 6 and 2! From start to finish, the owners were in excellent communication with us and were friendly & professional. The condo itself has been tastefully updated. During our spring break stay the area experienced a 15 degree cooler than average weather snap so we particularly appreciated this condo's close proximity to the indoor pool and heated outdoor pool. With young kids, it was also nice that the beach boardwalk is just steps away, the washer/dryer (takes credit cards!) was so close to the unit, and we didn't have to keep track of keys (only remembering the door code). The Sassy Bass Island Grill restaurant opened on the Plantation's property in January and was pretty tasty and super-convenient. We also tried the Kiva Grill restaurant for lunch one day (property next door). The beds weren't my favorite (I believe they were foam-- too soft and slept hot for my liking) but the positives of this unit and rental experience far outweighed that aspect.
