Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with out stay. The condo is decorated very nicely, they have managed to keep a beach theme and not be cheesy. You can tell Joel and Kathryn have put a lot of time and money into their condo. Our family enjoyed a one week stay and may even try to take a long weekend before the end of the year.

The property is also nice, this condo is located between two of the seven pools at Gulf Shores Plantation. The bigger of the two pools has a large area that is just 1' deep that the kids love, and transitions to 5' deep on the opposite end. The smaller of the two pools is deeper, it transitions from 3' to 8'. The beach is only a short walk down the boardwalk. Since Gulf Shores Planation is isolated from other properties the beaches aren't crowded, so you never have to walk far to find the perfect place to set up your beach chairs.

Overall this is a great place and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay on the beach.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from the vacation and we had a great time. The reservation was so easy and the owers responded so quickly. We have a 2 yrs. old toddler so the priority was the safety and accessibility to the amenities. The unit has everything you need. The kitchen has everything essentials and three TV sets with cable and Wi-Fi were available so it worked well for the toddler and adults. The unit was so close to the outdoor pool and the beach. The walkway was great for the toddler so it was so easy for us to enjoy the beach without carrying the child. Also, we had overcast the first two days and we enjoyed the indoor pool. Since the area was about 20 min away, it was quiet and not over crowed. We would go again!

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.
