PERFECT BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the condo! It was so wonderful to wake up every morning and have breakfast on the deck over-looking the beach. This was also time of year to visit because it felt like we nearly had the whole place to ourselves. With tennis, basketball, shuffleboard and swimming it was impossible to get bored!

If we head to Gulf shores again we will definitely stay here!

We spent a great week at the Propes' retreat - the best condo we've had in the three years we spent time at the Plantation. We loved the decor - the colors and the great leather couch, the comfortable bed, the fine linens, the fully-stocked kitchen (a waffle iron, even), the view of the ocean on nice balcony furniture, hanging hooks attached in just the right places, a good stock of cleaning supplies, and clear instructions for guests attached conveniently on the refrigerator. The Wifi worked great, many pamphlets of area attractions were provided, and the nicest touch of all was a wine flute filled with Hershey's kisses. This is a well-oiled machine; we appreciated it very much. Thanks so much. Bev & Jim

LESS THAN WE EXPECTED :(

  • 1 of 5
We knew this condo was on the smaller side when we booked it , so we didn't expect big and luxurious but this was tiny . There was no counter space , hardly any storage and we felt cramped the whole time . They provided one dish cloth and one dish towel along with one roll of toilet paper . Due to lack of storage in the kitchen we just kept our food in a tote and used it as a makeshift pantry. Unfortunately you have to go to a hot, buggy laundry area down the hall to wash your laundry ,which is 3.00 per load . The shower curtain liner was torn and due to air conditioning it was always being sucked into the shower while you tried to bathe. We also noticed lots of smoking near pools , boardwalks and on the beach . I realize this is not the owners fault , just disappointed in seeing it . Our girls noticed it too . We had never seen smoking or cig butts on the beach in Navarre . We were so excited about this trip away with our girls , but due to some of the issues we were all ready to head home.

Owner's Response: This review is so disappointing for many reasons…First, because we strive to give our guests have as much information as possible before reserving including numerous pictures so you can decide if our home suits your needs and expectations. We clearly advertise that our unit is 500 sf, does not have a washer & dryer, and you can see the size of the kitchen and available counter space. We provide “a starter supply” of bath tissue, paper towels, & dish soap. Otherwise, you must provide your own. Most people comment that they are happy that the laundry is so close as it is only steps away. Yes, it is 1.50 to wash & $1.50 to dry. This is the 1st complaint we have received in our 7 years as owners about smoking. Our resort has designated smoking areas, and we have never seen cigarette butts on our beach. We did contact our HOA manager right away who sent a crew around during this time, July 4th weekend. They assured us that they did not see people smoking around the family pools or cigarette butts on the boardwalk. The security & maintenance team on site walks the community areas often throughout the day. This guest sent us an email to tell us about the torn shower liner & their disappointment with smokers, etc but said “We won't do a review on vrbo or your website because I don't want to discourage anyone from staying” Of course, we called them to let them know that we had new liners in the bedroom closet if they needed one right away and that the resort was sending someone around to check for anyone violating the resort’s smoking policy. They did not call us back. As owners, there is only so much we can control, and we act on what we can if an issue arises. What we cannot be responsible for are guests that can clearly see one thing in an advertisement and expect something completely different when they arrive. Lastly, we have just updated our unit with all brand new furnishings, and had crown moldings installed throughout just 2 weeks before this arrival. We had hoped for an awesome review as our rental looked so beautiful when we left. I would suggest that this guest would have only been happy if they had reserved a 2 Bedroom, with washer & dryer, a large kitchen, in Navarre Beach, where people never smoke on the beach, and the front desk brings you bath tissue. However, that is not what we advertise. If you read what we offer and you think it is a great price, then please come stay at our home away from home! We would love to have you! Amanda & Jason Propes

A GREAT LOCATION AND COZY STAY, LACKING IN UPKEEP

  • 3 of 5
The property is situated in a quieter part of Alabama's gulf coast beaches. This makes the location a draw for us, as we usually aren't big on crowds. On the flip side, you have to drive about 20 minutes for most things like restaurants or groceries. But that's worth the extra peace and space on the beach.

The unit is nice for small families or or even for just a couple. The place has just about everything we needed or desired, and was comfortable enough. Some of the furnishings and finishings do show their age - so don't expect a "new" place.

I gave it 3 stars because it's time to do some maintenance and upkeep. The bedroom is situated in a corner where an outside light shines directly on the window. This made it hard to sleep without an eye cover. Some nice blackout curtains would serve well. The back porch sliding door is very difficult to operate without derailing. Screens on the windows have holes or are peeling off - so we could only open the windows when the beach flies were not present (which were a problem at dawn). The tub doesn't hold water and there was no drain stopper - so shower was the only option. We did encounter a couple of dying roaches - so that means they've been sprayed but the place is not free of them (most places aren't). The owners did respond quickly when we had questions or concerns, but some things can't be resolved so quickly. The upkeep issues are things that just need some attention.

Overall we enjoyed the stay, but unless the place is fixed up we may look elsewhere next time we visit the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review as we always appreciate feedback. We strive to provide our guests a beach front vacation rental that meets or exceeds expectations. During your short stay with us, we attempted to satisfy every request made to the best of our ability including a special no chemical cleaning prior to arrival. Although it was last minute on Easter morning we gladly asked our cleaning staff to accommodate this request because we want to make our guests happy. Our vacation home is maintained on a very regular basis, with extensive deep cleans completed routinely. We take great pride in that as you can see from our other reviews. Furnishings are replaced as needed, baseboards and walls are painted annually, and this winter we were pleased to have added two new flat screen TV’s for our guests. We appreciate your alerting us of these minor maintenance issues which have now been resolved. We do hope you were able to enjoy some time relaxing on the beach and taking in the beautiful sights that our location has to offer.

Best wishes,
Amanda & Jason

WE ENJOYED OUR STAY!

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. We took two teenagers and one toddler and everyone was happy and comfortable. The week we was there it was really hot and humid so we enjoyed the option of having access to a variety of pools and an indoor pool. We would definately stay here again!

EVERYTHING WE EXPECTED!

  • 5 of 5
Renting this condo was a pleasant experience! The Propes were quick to respond to ALL correspondence, and any problems you might encounter will be handled quickly & efficiently! This unit is located in the best location; steps from the pool, boardwalk & laundry. I was able to watch a sea turtle's nest being relocated on May 26 (clearly marked with green flagging to the left of the boardwalk) so if your going July 20 to 30, you might get lucky enough to watch them emerge from their nest! The Bon Secure wildlife lady said they take about 60 days to hatch and she puts volunteers on 2 hr shift watches from days 55-65. We had a great time, we highly recommend this property/owners :D
