Thank you so much for renting us your condo the week before Memorial Day. We totally enjoyed our stay and loved the balcony overlooking the beach. It was very quiet and very clean and I enjoyed staying there much more than a hotel. I was so excited to be staying right on the beach that I was getting up at 4:00 am just so I could go on the balcony and listen to the ocean. One morning we even saw 2 wild rabbits right below the balcony on the grass area right by the small pool. The beaches and the water were just breathtaking and I liked the fact that the Plantation was not on the main strip so it was not near as crowded. I'm sad that my vacation is over but I look forward to coming back. Thank you for all the information on all the wonderful restaurants in Gulf Shores. Our favorite place to eat was Papa Rocca's.

Owner's Response: Plantation is like home away from home but with a relaxing vacation feeling. We love for our renters to have a great time. We do have a lot of beautiful natural dunes that enhance our view rather than a lot of high rise condos. It is a breath taking picture looking out from the balcony at the beach and beautiful Gulf waters. Sometimes in the mornings you can even see the dolphins swim by!! We are glad to hear that others like Papa Roccos - they have always served us excellent food!

Not a very good place to stay.

The condo Location was awesome but the unit was awful. I completed my 4 night stay but I was never comfortable to sit on the living room furniture or sleep in the bed. The sheets on the bed were old and stained; the living room couch looked like it was found on the side of the road. On the first morning, we woke up to bugs crawling on the kitchen sink. In the bathroom, we found used Kleenex on the floor and the bathroom rug had suspicious looking stains. Also, Dave, the owner used aluminum foil as drip pans on the electric stove top. Dave seemed like a really nice guy when I spoke to him on the phone , I just think he's in over his head. If Dave can't provide a better unit for his guest he should take it off of the rental Market.

Owner's Response: Michael, Sorry you were dissatisfied with your stay at my condo. You were nice to talk to on the phone as I informed you of the areas best golf courses. I did not know of your concerns until now. I always encourage my renters to call me if they have any concerns. I could have sent my cleaners over there to help you with these issues. The couch is only 2 years old. I had my cleaners who supply the sheets to check them out. I have not had any issues before with them. I have being renting condos for 14 years now. This condo has had a 95% positive rating over the last 14 years. We love this condo and have about 70% of our rentals from return renters!! Hope you enjoyed your golf

We love Gulf Shores Plantation! Everything about the complex is top notch and a fantastic place for vacationing families! The unit faces the gulf so morning coffee is awesome as well as the short walk to the beach. One of the complexes many pools (and a less crowded one!) is right outside this unit which makes it so great for those with little kids. While the condo itself was clean, it does need an update. Comparable units price-wise in this complex had newer furniture in the bedroom and living area. However, this unit does have a dishwasher which is a definite plus. For the price/night, this unit was adequate for our vacation.

The plantation property was very nice and in a good location if you are with a family and/or want to stay away form the crowds on the beaches. The owner of this condo seemed very nice in my brief interaction. The condo itself is was outdated and not cleaned well prior to our arrival but for the price I could live with it, as it was one of best deals for the amenities provided at the plantation.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We have always have taken pride in keeping our condo clean. I will talk to my cleaners. If there is an issue with the cleaning I give our renters the number of our cleaners who are happy to take care of any issues. We update our condo every year and keep it in excellent shape. We will continue to improve it. We love the view, pools, and all of the amenities that Plantations has to offer. We have free internet, grills onsite, sauna room, steam room, basketball courts, shuffleboard, and a golf course right on site. Thanks! David

I was a first time renter on this site, and I couldn't have picked a better owner to work with. David was very kind and pleasant to work with and the rental process was very smooth. He provided me with any information that I asked for and was always very prompt in getting back to me. The condo has a marvelous beach view and is perfect for a quiet relaxing getaway. I really enjoyed my stay and look forward to returning whenever I can.

I am sorry to say that these accommodations did not offer the experience that we expected. For the price a much nicer place can be rented. After two hours of seeing what I had rented I left as I could not bear to think of sleeping in the bed or sitting on the sofa. I went seeking and found a beautiful space for the same price a bit further down the coast. This property looks like it has not been refurbished since 1980. Needless to say, we were extremely disappointed. I lost 4 nights of rental but at least I was able to salvage my vacation. This is the only time in my 20+ years of renting via VRBO and/or the Internet that I have had a bad experience and I travel to the Alabama and Florida coast at least once, and sometimes twice, each summer. It gives me no pleasure to give a bad review but I believe that this feedback is necessary. I have expressed these same views directly to the owners. Perhaps they will think it over and invest in some upgrades that are sorely needed. To say something nice, the only redeeming quality might be the view, but the balcony is tiny. In fact the entire place is tiny. I can't even imagine more than 2 people staying in this property.
