Will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for renting us your condo the week before Memorial Day. We totally enjoyed our stay and loved the balcony overlooking the beach. It was very quiet and very clean and I enjoyed staying there much more than a hotel. I was so excited to be staying right on the beach that I was getting up at 4:00 am just so I could go on the balcony and listen to the ocean. One morning we even saw 2 wild rabbits right below the balcony on the grass area right by the small pool. The beaches and the water were just breathtaking and I liked the fact that the Plantation was not on the main strip so it was not near as crowded. I'm sad that my vacation is over but I look forward to coming back. Thank you for all the information on all the wonderful restaurants in Gulf Shores. Our favorite place to eat was Papa Rocca's.

Owner's Response: Plantation is like home away from home but with a relaxing vacation feeling. We love for our renters to have a great time. We do have a lot of beautiful natural dunes that enhance our view rather than a lot of high rise condos. It is a breath taking picture looking out from the balcony at the beach and beautiful Gulf waters. Sometimes in the mornings you can even see the dolphins swim by!! We are glad to hear that others like Papa Roccos - they have always served us excellent food!

Owner's Response: So glad you loved the place. It's a wonderful location and we have an awesome view. Of the Gulf! We just painted the condo this year. The Queen bed in the master bedroom was just purchase this February and is very comfortable and is a Queen size mattress I promise you. Our long term rental loved it as well as ourselves (I am 6'3" and my wife is 5'10".) and fit very comfortably. We purchased a premium queen size mattress for our guest with comfort in mind. We try to make our guest comfortable in our condo so they have a great beach vacation!! Gulf Shores Plantations has so much to offer with so many pools onsite. We have a beautiful picturesque view of beach sand dunes and the Gulf. It's a wonderful place to come relax and enjoy family and friends! Thanks so much for your comments.

Very cute, right on the beach !!

  • 5 of 5

Smaller than expected, but cute. Would not recommend 6 people. 2 adults 2 children would fit comfortably. Dishes were greasy but not a big deal. Dishwasher didn't run, I couldn't figure it out I guess lol. Beautiful view from the balcony and being right on the beach is a plus! Would def. Stay there again!!

Wasted Money...keep looking

  • 1 of 5

We arrived about 11pm after a long drive ready to relax and start our vacation. When we walked into the room, we were less than pleased. The first thing we had to do was sweep the floor because it was so dirty. Then we went to put our clothes away and the drawers were full of other peoples clothes and underwear. It was late so we just wanted a shower and a nice bed. We went to the bathroom and noticed there were no plug covers on the electrical outlets first thing. We opened the shower and actually had to clean it because of the grime on the walls. When we were letting the water run we turned down the sheets and saw awful stains. We went to replace them with the sheets from the pull out sofa bed and they were stained worse! Along with the stains on the couch. After all of this we decided to reconsider the room. While we were in the kitchen area discussing it we ended up killing some bugs that came out to say hi. After all of this, which occurred in about 45 minutes, we decided we could not stay in this room because it was so nasty the drawers were full of other peoples stuff. So at midnight we left and found a room for the night until we could call Plantation and book a much better room in which the staff was all too happy to help us do. I am sure the owner is a nice guy because he offered to let us stay in a different room but at that point the damage was done. We had already settled into and paid for another room. I truly hope the money we donated to this condo went towards a new couch, new sheets, new cleaners, and new light covers and other much needed obvious repairs. After this experience I will definitely go back to plantation but I will never rent from VRBO again. Our vacation was wonderful but ended up costing us over double what we wanted to spend because we could not sleep with the bugs and stains in this condo.

Thanksgiving vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this condo for our Thanksgiving holiday. It was beautiful there. The condo met all our needs. We loved the view, and the heated pool right outside as well as the indoor pool and hot tub. Will definitely recommend to others and hope to stay again soon.

Great Ocean-Front View

  • 4 of 5

The ocean-front condo was perfect for my husband and I. The staff there is friendly. I loved the pools and ocean for swimming.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review!!! Yes there is so much to do at this condo complex. Many pools to wander around and sit by. Relax in the sun and soak up some rays. Jump in the 5 available pools or sit in the 4 hot tubs that are around the pools. Then get ready for a walk on the beach or wade into the emerald green waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You all are welcome back anytime. The grounds people are very friendly and try and make your stay wonderful!!
