About A.J. Governale

My father, brother, and I purchased this property in March of 2005. We all live in Atlanta and Fort Morgan was a reasonable drive to the beautiful Gulf of Mexico Beaches. We chose Fort Morgan because the area and the beaches were much less crowed than the Florida beaches in Sand Destin and PC beach were we spent many vacations fighting to find spots at the pools or beach.

A.J. Governale purchased this condo in 2005

Why A.J. Governale chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We purchased this property because we were looking for a property that had a family atmosphere and also privacy of the beaches and pools. This is perfect spot that allowed us to enjoy our time with our kids and family and not worry about the surroundings.

What makes this condo unique

The property has many benefits that we enjoy. The number of pools and hot tubs allows the property to never seem too crowded. The condo is a very short walk to the beach and ocean. There is plenty of room in the unit to sleep 6 people. If you enjoy golf there are many topped ranked courses within a 5 mile ratios. The property has a security person at the gate 24/7.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just returned from a family vacation at Plantation Plams and we loved it! The condo was very clean and inviting. We do not like to go out to eat on vacation and this condo had everything we needed. We had plenty of room for the 5 of us. My younger daughter stayed on the pull out coach and was comfortable. The resort had everything we look for. Multiple pools, tennis, basketball. My husband likes to grill out and they have plenty of grills for us to use. The private beach was beatiful and just a short walk down the board walk. We will visit again!

I enjoyed our stay as always when we go down

  • 5 of 5

I loved our room that's why we have rented it for the past probably 5 years. The only issue I had this year was the people that rented the room didn't get out when they were supposed to so we ended up in a different room for the night. Everyone at Poole and Assoc and the owner were very apologetic. I was just very stressed out because we rented this room for a week but were now 1 day short of it. But as I said everyone did a great job in trying to help us. I will definitely rent this condo again as we love the location and the view from it. It was a great week but as always goes way to fast. Until next year. :)

Uses a property management company that is not flexible!

  • 2 of 5

This renter uses a property management company and there is no flexibilty on check in time. They are located off site and will not let you check in until 3pm then you have a 20 min drive to condo. Not very friendly either. The condo was clean, but the mattresses are very hard. I ended up on the couch most nights.

Owner's Response: Kathy your email confirmation for check in detailed the check in time is 3:00. This is because the summer weeks get very busy and we want to make sure the unit is cleaned well for the next guest. Just like most hotels once the guests check out at 11:00am the cleaning service needs the time to clean the unit properly for the next guest. The property manager is located right off hey 59 to make it convenient for our guest to stop and check in as they arrive in Gulf Shores. Sorry for an inconvenience.

Great family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed are visit to Gulf Shores Plantation with our family. The condo was very clean and what I like most is the unit had everything we needed so that we did not have to leave once we settled in with the kids. There are a number of pool & hot tubes on the property that always had chairs available. We have a toddler that loved the kiddy pool. The beaches were great! Being a private beach we never had a hard time locating chairs and it was only a short walk down the boardwalk from the pools! We will be visiting this condo and resort again!

Not pleased.

  • 2 of 5

We have rented condos for the last 30 years at various beaches. This condo was by far the most disappointing. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was the poor condition of the appliances and the outdated, dirty overall condition of this unit. I am 5'4" and I was taller than the refrigerator. The oven did not bake things properly. Our biscuits and dinner rolls would burn on the bottom, however, the tops would not brown at all. A heating element was dangling from the top of the oven. The dishwasher shelves were very difficult to push in and out. The bathrooms were dirty and the master bathtub did not drain. The water pressure in the guest bath was extremely bad, which forced everyone to use the master bath. The pull out couch bed was horrible! The outside furniture was rusty and came off on our clothes. This condo unit has potential, but is in desperate need of a good flip. My relatives rented a condo with the same floor plan on the third floor and we were amazed at the difference. It was like night and day!! Their unit was extremely clean and updated and their rate was better than ours!!! The Plantation Resort Complex was just okay. The bathroom pools were locked many times and could not be used. A large section of the boardwalk to the beach was covered with deep sand which made it difficult rolling things to the beach. It is a very long boardwalk and the complex sits off the beach more than we prefer. I would NOT recommend this condo unit and will not stay here again.

Owner's Response: Janet we are so sorry to hear you were disappointed in your stay. My family and I have owned the unit for over 10 years and pride ourselves in renters satisfaction. From what I read from your stay it sounds like most of your troubles could of been addressed and corrected with a phone call to me or our property manager. We do have a property manager in gulf shores that would of fixed any problems that you had during your stay. The property manager also handles the cleaning and would of sent the cleaning crew right out to do any touch up cleaning if needed. As for the sand on the board walk the resort does have a owner relations contact and I could of contacted them about your concerns with the sand on the board walk.

Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Gulf Shores Plantation. The condo was very clean and was in a great location. It was nice having the washer/dryer in the condo because most of the buildings at the resort have a laundry room instead. There were 2 pools and a hot tub right outside the building. The view was great and would stay here again.
