Guestbook comments from the owner
Kim and I have enjoyed our stay and sad we have to go home tomorrow but I guess all good things must come to an end. Just wanted to let you know that we plan on leaving around 6:00 am tomorrow. Not sure if you have someone checking in tomorrow but wanted to give you a heads up to give extra time to get the condo ready if needed.



Had a question...what kind of mattress is in the master bedroom? My wife has had issues with her back her whole life and says she's never slept better. We've been thinking of buying a new mattress for our home so we're curious.



Thanks so much for opening up your condo for us. We've had a great time and sad to leave tomorrow.

Beaches were always our passion. We couldn't wait to travel to new tropical settings. The tranquility and beauty always puts us in proper perspective of appreciation for the gifts of nature.

After the first trip to Gulf Shores Alabama, we knew it was a place we wanted to return again and again.

We've love visiting by ourselves, with our family(10 grandchildren)and friends. The beach never disappoints us.

Gary & Laura Merello purchased this condo in 2007

The first year after taking an early retirement we bought our first Gulf Shores Condo (Our other 1 bedrm listing is 25459) It's always been a peaceful beach get-away. Away from the normal tourist congestion but with numerous actives a short drive away. It seems like every trip we make, we find new Gulf Shore friends in the complex and new places to explore. We've always enjoyed our beach get-away.

The complex has enough amenities that you can stay at condo, relax and eat-in. But the local wildlife, restaurants, actives and nightlife offer some wonderful choices worth seeking out.

We love the Buffett-sound and the southern-country rock. These musical talents are well showcased in Gulf Shores.

Great family get away!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the peace and quiet and all the amenities the Plantation offered. While it is a pretty large complex nothing seemed overrun or inadequate for the amount of people staying there. Grounds and pools and such within were well maintained and clean. While we have children (grown now) and understand kids about, the place was really quiet with well behaved guests, especially at night. Boardwalk to the beach is very well maintained and all rinse stations worked fine. Everything in the room worked as it should and with the fully stocked kitchen we were able to prepare meals without any issue. All in all we had a very enjoyable time and are already talking about our next visit!

Fantastic Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
For our first family vacation, I could not have asked for a better experience. The condo and resort were perfect for my family of 5 (myself and four children). I was a little nervous about making the trip to Gulf Shores and caring for the kids in unfamiliar territory, but the great communication with the owners alleviated most of my concerns. The condo had all the essentials to cook meals and provide entertainment for all of us. The walk to the beach and pools was short and easily managable even with the amount of stuff we were carrying to and from. We created wonderful family memories and look forward to returning soon.

I would highly recommend this property or any property these owners have. The amount of effort and care they put into maintaining a perfect get-a-way destination was obvious. They were truly a pleasure to work with!

Gulf Shores Plantation Condo

  • 4 of 5
My daughter, her friends and I enjoyed staying here. It is an older property but it seemed kept up well. They even have a security guard at the gate. The condo was clean and we had a could see the ocean from our balcony. There was a little cafe on site that served Starbucks coffee!!! It also had other items to offer but I cannot rate them as I did not try them. It did have other items as sodas, water, sunscreen, some beach clothing and items etc. We were in Ft. Morgan for a wedding celebration so we did not spend a lot of time at the condo. But when we did it was great. The beach is just a short walk away with a boardwalk leading to it. The beach was not crowded with people but I will say there were plenty of seagulls and other birds. The sunsets were spectacular.

The only complaint was that when we pulled out the sleeper couch there were crackers crumbs that came out. But the rest of the place was absolutely spotless so that really didn't bother us so much.

I was concerned a little about a security deposit that this property required but within the week after my trip I got my deposit back. No problem. I guess that is how they keep the rate reasonable.

Gary and Laura have a wonderful condo and I would definitely stay there again.
