About Ron Pennise

We have been coming to Gulf Shores and the Plantation for years and love the quite and out of the way location of the beach and facilities.

Ron Pennise purchased this condo in 2010

Why Ron Pennise chose Alabama

The plantation offers us the opportunity to go to the beach without all the crowd and remembering the way it use to be. You can sunbath, build sandcastles, collect sea shells or just sit and read at one of the 6 pools on the property. Kiva Dunes Golf Course is located at the entrance of the property so don't forget your clubs. If you like to fish, you are located in Paradise. There is a marina down the road and the fishing off the point is some of the best. This Family Friendly Resort is gated and offers you a private beach of white sand that has something forall ages to enjoy.

This place is amazing! The condo had such such a beach feel and was tastefully decorated and clean.

  • 5 of 5

My family of six had an awesome time here! The place was a paradise away from Paw Paw, Michigan for sure. We had all we needed there except groceries. The beaches were never crowded nor were the pools. We were only 15 minutes from the "more crowded" area. Be sure to drive down Mobile Street slowly, that's were alligators hang out. Take a flash light for the kids and let them search and capture the tiny ghost crabs on the beach at night, SO fun! The only negative is that I would highly recommend the Plantations invest in a few more basketball courts instead of so many tennis courts. There were lines, and sometimes we were unable to even play basketball at all because there were lines and you had adults and little kids all wanting to play while the tennis courts sat almost empty. We stayed in a lofted condo that was by far located right next to the best two pools and hot tub on the grounds, with a boardwalk right to the beach. My kids had fun catching lizards and jellyfish and collecting a few shells. We caught 2 slow worms and 3 geckos. It was really a relaxing time. Washing our own laundry was no issue at all. We are so very blessed to have had such a wonderful trip and stay in Alabama. Ron Pennise offered such a wonderful vacation opportunity to our family in being able to stay here!!!

Last week of summer get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented for a week’s stay and found the condo as enjoyable as owner Ron was accommodating. The condo itself, a short walk to any pool or to the beach, was spacious, clean and comfortable. The kitchen offered more appliances than we needed or could use, and we found the same for dishes, silverware and cutlery. The large refrigerator /freezer allowed us to buy perishable food for the entire week’s stay; plenty of kitchen cabinetry allowed us to stock up on the dry goods for the week as well. Even the condo’s kitchen had a convenient and useful extension: outdoor grills provided barbecued steaks and salmon. Even the bathrooms came stocked with towels for our use.

When leaving the comfort of the condo and going beyond the pools or beach for a spell to explore the area, we found plenty to do. Hardest part was choosing what to do first: historical pilgrimage to Fort Morgan, natural habitat hike through Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge or the wide open ferry ride of Mobile Bay, or the many shopping experiences afforded by stores on Route 57, just a short ride from the condo.

We enjoyed most perhaps the never-crowded, white sands of the beach, warm and clean Gulf waters, and abundant wildlife seen in both water and sky. Sunrises prompted our long, quiet walks along the shoreline. Cooling sunsets simply refreshed and amazed us. We appreciated most the condo owner’s affable demeanor, whether contacting us shortly after our arrival to see if we needed anything to his availability to answer our questions (especially about getting around, suggestions for restaurants or sightseeing destinations). Ron is a both maître d' and a tour guide, always helpful, always there when you need him.

We are booking this condo again for our next visit to Gulf Shores in the spring.

Great place and great owners

  • 5 of 5

We found our room exactly as advertised and received a call from the owner after checking in to make sure everything was good and to inquire if we needed anything. Very nice personal touch. Would definitely stay again.

Gulf Shores Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best condos we have rented in years. The food was great and plenty of good choices for local sea food restaurant's. Shopping was the best ever with new outlet malls just a short drive, and lots of local shops to keep us busy. the beach's were awesome and never very crowded. We could have easily stayed another week, as I said, we will be back and I'm sure this will become a favorite destination for us. This condo was very clean, and had everything anyone could ever want. We will stay there again........................
