Why Barb Lambert chose Gulf Shores

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.

More than met our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Rented this first floor condo for the week of July 22-29,2017. Our son, wife and their 3 kids (ages 3-9) and me and my wife ( grandma and grandpa ) really enjoyed ourselves. The condo was spacious, close to all the amenities the resort had to offer. We would reserve again if possible.

Bright, cheerful, comfortable, roomy and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

Pros: Convenient to the beach, pool and restaurant. Lots of room for a group of 5 or more. Decorated really nice. Clean unit. Rooms are spread out for privacy. There are lots of pools and hot tubs and 2 indoor pools for rainy days which is nice. Sassy Bass restaurant is a few doors down at the resort. Great Grouper sandwich! We will definitely come again!

Cons: The internet connection was bad at times. Some of the shelves in fridge were stuck or falling off. The unit could use a new iron and a few mirrors in the bedrooms.

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.
