Beautiful, Awesome, Wonderful, Relaxing Vacation!!
My family and I have stayed at Gulf Shores Plantation for 25+ years now so when we booked this unit we could not wait to return. I had never book through homeaway.com but Jackie made this experience excellent and hassle free. She was always available to answer any of my questions and the price for this condo was very affordable. The listing for this property was right on. When we walked through the doors, it felt like we were right at home- very clean and nicely maintained. It was just enough room for my husband, sister , my son (1), nieces (2 &6), and myself. The recliners in the living room came in handy to rock all my babies to sleep after a long day out on the beautiful white sand and clear ocean water.
I would recommend this property to anyone especially if you have small children. The laundry room is just a few doors down, the stairs were too so it made it convenient going down to the outdoor pool and boardwalk to the beach (we loved the pool because it was 1 foot deep in the shallow end so the young kids could stand up with their floats and walk around.). The beach was amazing and we just walked down and set up our spot and it stayed in place, untouched all week.
We did travel to Gulf Shores (about a 15 min drive) then onto Foley (about 30 min). We ate at Lamberts in Foley (very delicious)- hint we went on a Thursday at about 4 PM and only had a 15 min waiting time. Also went to Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley (great shopping) and Target :) Other than that we stayed at the Plantation as it had everything we needed (indoor pool, outdoor pools, beach)! There are a few eating places around so just check them out so you don't have to cook or leave to go into town.
The only advise I can give anyone that is planning to come here is to bring beach towels, some extra bath and hand towels, kitchen towels, some wash rags (just so you don't have to do laundry as often), quarters for laundry (but if you forget like we did you can walk to the high rise and get change), beach umbrellas and chairs, charcoal, lighters, lighter fluid, and aluminum foil for BBQ, plenty of sunscreen, and the basics- clothes, toiletries, etc.....
Thank you Jackie and staff for our wonderful vacation as we can not wait to return!
Sincerely the Cole and Bush Families
P.S. I already received my deposit back ! Thanks Jackie :)
