About Terri El-Farkh

We love to travel and enjoy being in nature with our family.

Terri El-Farkh purchased this condo in 2011

Why Terri El-Farkh chose Gulf Shores

I grew up with a family home in Gulf Shores but find the Fort Morgan area so much more peaceful. Our condo is far from the street, so our children are safe and it is quiet. There are wildlife refuge areas and uncrowded beaches, walking and biking trails, and water on both sides- the calm bay for sailing, kayaking, and fishing, and the gulf for swimming and dolphin spotting. This resort has so many amenities, we never get bored. If we do, Gulf Shores has a lot to offer with restaurants, shopping, zoo, water slides, putt putt, etc. These are some of the reasons we chose our 2nd home here and not Florida.

What makes this condo unique

We love watching the rabbits at dusk and the moon rise over the water. There are several small lakes with alligators, turtles, herons, and waterlilies. We have 7 pools so it it's never crowded. The courtyard area is a great place for hide and seek and volleyball. There are 27 miles of paved bike trails as well as wooded walking trails We see dolphins jumping everyday around 5 or 6 o'clock and the sunrise and sunset are spectacular!

Best vacation we have ever had!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time ever renting through vrbo. It was so easy to use the book it now option.The owners were great to rent from and really do a great job getting back to you quickly as well as taking care of any needs you may have. This condo is stocked exceptionally well. The spice rack came in handy when the kids wanted french toast instead of pancakes. Also we used a little flour to make graveyard when we were trying to use up the last of the biscuits. This may not be a big deal to most but when you have a large family anything that saves you a little money is a huge deal! We had two adults and six kids and had an amazing time. The location of Fort Morgan is exceptional but not too secluded. There is many things to do in the area for families. I had planned many things to do during the week we stayed there but we liked the resort so much we hardly ever left. They should do a few updates to the resort property like new basketball nets and rims. But the pools are very accommodating and beautiful the grounds are very well kept. The ocean is steps away and amazingly beautiful sunset. Our condo was near the largest pool and a view of the beach. They had a spice rack and well stocked kitchen with nice big pots and pans so cooking for my large family was easy to do with what was provided. There were tons of beach toys for us to use while there. We crab hunted at night with the kids. My husband and I sneaked out to the beach by ourselves a couple of nights. We were the only people on the beach! We had wonderful weather for the last week of September. It was warm and mostly sunny all week even though the forecast said thunderstorms all week. The waves were decent size. We checked groupon for deals in the area before vacation and we're able to take a fantastic sunset cruise to watch dolphins. We saw a ton of them! We also took a ferry ride over to dauphin island and went to the estuarium which was well worth going to. We homeschool and were able to get a school rate . Although lunch on the island was not very good and was incredibly high for lunch for a family of 8 anyway. I recommend packing a lunch and eating at Fort gains by the ocean instead and going back to fort morgan for ice cream later ( there isn't ice cream parlors on the island someone needs to open one and will surely make some money!) We loved every minute of our vacation! We are debating now whether we want to go here every year! The bikes were great to use as well the other sports eq

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review and I'm so glad you had a good time. We like to have all the comforts of home so our guests don't have to bring so much when they come. Having everything for cooking and beach chairs etc. makes it easier for us as well when we come over. The basketball nets are replaced at the end of every summer because of the excessive use during the year. I'll remind the management-thanks.

Families with small children

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. Since we have small children, access to multiple pools and especially the indoor pool was great. There were tons of toys and beach chairs in the closet. The bunk beds are metal, so they are pretty noisy. I wouldn't recommend it for light sleepers, but having so many sleep options in one room worked great for our family.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and for letting us know about the bed. The squeaking was the box springs under the full size mattress. Someone exceeded the weight limit and broke it. We have replaced it with a new one.

Great Week Despite the weather!

  • 5 of 5

Your condo was fabulous Terri and Sahmi were very gracious hosts. It really was perfect for our needs with 4 kids with more amenities than we could possibly have used. I know the kids really appreciated the beach toys as those were used daily. Having a full compliment of pots and pans and everything else really made life easy for us. I can't think of anything we went to look for that we couldn't find. Heck I even noticed the first aid kit in the drawer of the bathroom. Very nice.

I have also been very impressed with your responsiveness and the promptness at which our questions have been addressed throughout the process. We could not have asked for a better first experience renting a condo!

A Must Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start! The scenery was breathtaking! The condo was spectacular! Modern upgrades, clean, cozy, and spacious. It was seven of us and it was plenty of room! The kitchen had everything so we cooked breakfast everyday! We enjoyed everything about it! It is a must visit!

Thank you so much! This was our first time visiting Gulf Shores and it was better than we could've imagined. The owners did a fantastic job in making this condo feel like a second home!

Love the Plantation!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for the weekend. We loved having use of the bikes! We love staying at the Plantation. It is just a short drive to Gulf Shores, and not near as crowded. Kiva Dunes and The Beach Club are very close and have wonderful restaurants! We hope to return in the summer!
