No Sub-lets. MAXIMUM 4 occupancy!!

This condo has a recent kitchen remodel and new flooring installed at the same time. Located in Gulf Shores Plantation 'West' (Phase 3). If you find a better price, it won't have as beautiful a view of the Gulf as this condo!! Colorful, whimsical 'sun-suite' comfortably sleeps up to four (Maximum occupancy is four) and has a beautiful view of the Gulf and the beautifully landscaped pool/hot tub courtyard and Caribbean-style houses. The pool courtyard is reminiscent more of Hawaii than the Gulf Coast. The lush landscaping is gorgeous!

No road to cross. The Condo is on the North end of the pool courtyard. The sugar white sand and the Gulf are on the South end of the pool courtyard.

Wide unspoiled dunes and miles of sandy uncrowded beach. Nationally ranked Kiva Dunes golf course adjacent to the property. Relax on the balcony of this value-packed condominium and enjoy the views with your morning coffee or evening refreshment.

Fully furnished with full kitchen.

No pets, and non-smoking unit.

REFUNDABLE $200 Security Deposit is due immediately to reserve your dates. The security deposit becomes your damage deposit upon your arrival, and is completely refundable after your stay assuming conditions of rental are met, including departing the Condo in as-found condition (with only normal cleaning required), and keys are returned.

PAYMENT:

The rent, tax and cleaning fee are due approximately sixteen (16) days prior to your arrival, at which time keys and additional helpful information will be mailed to you. Cleaning fee is subject to change and is a pass-thru charge. Please send Check or money order. Sorry, no credit cards, but it helps keep the rent low!!

About John Linn

We are a family of 3 from Birmingham, AL and are beach lovers like most everyone else.

John Linn purchased this condo in 2001

Why John Linn chose Alabama

This area is tranquil and serene. It's a family-oriented resort with no though traffic. It's a good place to go to the beach to relax and escape the crowds of rowdy students.

What makes this condo unique

Gulf Shores Plantation is on Fort Morgan Road close to several restaurants, and also close enough to the amusements, restaurants, shopping and night life 'in town' that it is all easily accessible with a 10-15 minute drive, but far enough away that you can escape back to our family oriented resort with its wide sandy beaches, and unspoiled dunes and nature. Unlike what has resulted from the over-building and over-crowding 'in town' in 'Gulf Shores proper', Orange beach, and West beach. It's like the beach was when I was a kid. Just a great place where the kids are safe, there is no through-traffic, or 'girls/boys gone wild'.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Place was just right for me traveling alone, I love always to stay at the plantations, it is very safe and secure. Grounds are beautiful and well kept. Pool are great and beach is always beautiful.

Loved this little studio condo, very clean, and comfortable. John was very easy to work with. Will definitely stay there again.

The condo was great! Plenty of room for my husband and I. Clean and very well stocked. We stayed 9/1-9/10 and look forward to our next visit! John was easy to work with and we had no issues at all.

Great condo for small groups

  • 5 of 5

My adult son and I stayed five nights at this property. It was just as pictured. Polls and beach access were convenient. Second floor but near the elevator. Stairs are in between, so no elevator noise. The unit is small, but we expected that. Area around the bed is tight. I needed a table for my CPAP, so I just slept "upside down". LOL Sleeper sofa is just as uncomfortable as I remembered them being, but no fault of the owner. We'd stay again.

Great Property/Area

  • 5 of 5

Just as described, looks like photos. Second floor, end unit with no unit above, stairs and elevator close by. I loved this cute, cozy studio. Complex has 2 outdoor pools which I used plus beautiful beach just very short walk away. John, the owner, very easy to work with. I liked the area very much and as a woman traveling alone felt very safe. I needed a quiet, relaxing, restful getaway and that's what I received. I would stay here again.

12/28/13-1/3/14 Just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my husband and I to get away from it all. No hustle, no bustle, no hassles, no crowds. The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. I especially enjoyed the balcony, it protected us from the wind. We had no problems with the microwave. The beach was beautiful, but chilly.

Owner's Response: Hi - thank you so much for the great review! You probably guessed that the repairman called and rescheduled the microwave repair originally scheduled during your stay. That is good to know that it was reliable while you were there. But now I am not sure whether to move forward with the repair. That is so weird about the control panel error and what causes it. Again, thanks so much for calling on us and for taking time to post a review. John & Connie
