About Barb Lambert

Hello, We are the Lambert Family and we would like to share with you our 2 Vacation Rental Properties at the Gulf Shores Plantation, in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Each unit offers dazzling views of the white sand beaches and emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This is a Resort style property with many amenities and activites. The property is very 'Kid and Family Friendly

Barb Lambert purchased this condo in 2006

Why Barb Lambert chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We Vacationed to Gulf Shores 6 years ago, and totally fell in love with the area. It is truly our Sweet Home in Alabama. We purchase unit 6709, we like to call the Blue Lizard and then purchased 5003, the Flip Flop Inn. We have enjoyed creating relationships with all of our snowbirds, as well as many repeat customers year after year. The Plantation is the only resort in Gulf Shores that has so many Beautiful pools and all of the other wonderful amenities..I love the quietness of being on Fort Morgan. You truly are away from it all..

What makes this condo unique

This property has beautiful furniture, large comfortable bedrooms and high ceilings. The convenience of living on the first floor is wonderful for families who are in - out all day. The BBQ and picnic tables are right out in front, you will love not being tied to the elevator. Believe me once you stay in 5003 you will come back year after year.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great vacation. We loved the condo. It was great to be on the bottom floor and it was close to the pool and beach access. We have stayed in various condos at The Plantation over the last 15 years and I think this one was the best. Thanks for letting us stay in your condo.

Vacation with young children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Flip Flop Inn with our three children, ages 5, 3, and 1. This is a great family friendly condo! It is located outside of town, which is really nice! The condo has three bedrooms, one with bunk beds (twin on top, full(?) on bottom), one with two full or queen beds and a full bathroom, and one with a queen bed and full bathroom. The room with bunk beds had plenty of space for the pack-n-play. There is another full bathroom in the hallway. All rooms have a flat screen TV. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need, except scissors. The pans are pretty worn out, very warped and peeling. There are a few stainless steel pots, so I was able to cook everything in those and avoid the pans. There are two toasters, a hand blender, coffee maker, mixing bowls, measuring cups, strainer, etc... Directly across from the back door is the pool area, which is great! Two giant pools, a kiddie pool, and a hot tub just across the sidewalk. There is also a tennis court, and a small putting area. They have strict rules in the complex about quiet time after 10pm, which is nice because we had kids with us. We never heard the neighbors next to us, or above. Everything was VERY quiet. The beach is maybe a 6 or 7 minute walk. There is a long boardwalk that gets you half the way down the sand. A dollar general is about 8 miles down, and it has a full grocery section (minus produce), and beach/sand toys and equipment. Walmart is 13 miles away. It is about 30 minutes from the outlet mall. This condo might actually be pretty handicap accessible, except for only having bathtubs instead of a walk-in shower. However, if the person can transfer themselves fairly well, it may still work with a shower seat. The flooring is tile throughout. There is a 20$ parking fee that is not included in the rental price. The 300$ damage deposit was refunded within a week of our departure, so very quickly.

Overall, this was the best condo we have ever stayed in. Very quiet, close to all beach amenities, good price, and GROUND floor! We will stay here every time we visit the beach! The owner provided great customer service, and always responded quickly to my questions. We had one issue with the thermostat, and the maintenance guy was there within an hour to fix it.

loved our unit. sprinklers were a huge problem for us.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our unit. We would have liked to has more seating in the living room, but besides that the unit was perfect for us. Wish there had been somekind of shade to sit in during the day outside the unit. The main drawback for us was the sprinkler system that seem to run 24/7 and wet everything including the grilling area while trying to grill. I would give the unit 5 stars if that was the only thing to review about our stay here. The complex itself only gets 2 1/2 to 3 stars.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Gulf Shores. It's a great spot for families with beautiful beaches.. This condo was nicely decorated and wonderful to stay in. More room than we thought. It comes in handy for rainy days.The layout was a good fit for our 8 person family. Having a washer/dryer and three bathrooms were a bonus!! We will definitely make this our home for future vacations.

THANK YOU for a fun and relaxing trip
