About Jeff Lean

We are a family based out of Tennessee.

Jeff Lean purchased this condo in 2011

Why Jeff Lean chose Gulf Shores

We spent years trying to find the best and most affordable beach area in the Gulf Coast. Unlike anywhere we've been able to find, Gulf Shores is full of amazing 'Mom & Pop' local restaurants and entertainment. The white, sandy beaches are incredible and not as busy as most areas. Simply put, this is a vacation-rental for us and the locale and the condo had to be perfect for our family's needs, so that we could unconditional recommend our property to other people and families!!

What makes this condo unique

We loved the safety and privacy of this complex. The off-the-beaten path complex has a 24-hour guard house for entry which means the only people using the beach are the people renting or living at the complex. This keeps the beach from being overcrowded making this complex perfect for families and snowbirds.

Wonderful, Relaxing, PERFECT for a family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family, our middle schooler and our 3 year old LOVED it! Well separated from the busy and crowded beaches and away from all the crazy spring break vacationers - we will DEF be coming back to this location. The condo was clean and clearly well taken care of. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay. Thank you so much!

Good location, quiet, family oriented , good beach

  • 4 of 5

4 stars only because if you compare it to a 5 star resort it didn't have those high end amenities. Which didn't matter had a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Celeste! We received your text about wanting to rent the condo again. We'd love to host you again and was thrilled you loved the location & property! We were disappointed that you didn't feel the resort was worthy of 5 star. When we purchased our condo at the Gulf Shores Plantation the number one reason we purchased there was because the high quality of the amenities. We were lucky enough to see just about every resort from Orange Beacj to Fort Morgan before purchasing and we didn't find anything even close to what the Gulf Shores Plantation. Between the Indoor Pool, 7 outdoor pools, numerous tennis courts, putting greens, basketball courts, indoor and outdoor hot tubs, horse shoes, workout room, waverunner, beach chair & umbrella rentals and an on-site restaurant, our feeling is the Gulf Shores Plantation is unmatched. Our feeling is that the value for price is unmatched in all of Gulf Shores and is very much worthy of 5-stars. Hopefully we can host you again and can ensure that your next visit meets that standard. Thank you again for renting with us. We appreciate you choosing us for your beach vacation!

Great location! Perfect for families with younger children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our 15-yr old and our 11-yr old. It was the perfect location, just a short(3 minute) walk to the fabulous, uncrowded beach. There were so many buildings in this complex but the place never felt crowded or over-run with people. We just kept commenting on how non-busy the place seemed. This was exactly what we were looking for.

Where we live, we drive 25 minutes to get to anything so a short 15 minute drive to a restaurant wasn't a big deal, and there are places within a few minutes that have great food. We were very happy with the accommodations and the location. All of the prep for the upcoming trip that Jeff provided was helpful as well. We were able to plan some activities ahead of time. Thanks so much for the fabulous condo and we hope to come back in the future!

Great condo in a fun beachfront complex

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the condo and the whole atmosphere of the Plantation! This was our first trip to Alabama and to the Gulf of Mexico. We usually go to the Atlantic Ocean. We loved the Gulf of Mexico water and sand, although we were there during a tropical storm so we could only swim in the ocean for two days. We were thankful to have the pools to use and the indoor pool came in handy during the storm.

The complex itself is great and there are plenty of things to do, although, we have a young toddler and we think a playground would be a great addition! They do have a kiddie pool though that is helpful. All vacationers were very friendly, fun and laid back.

The complex is pretty far from many things to do if you like to get out and about. You cannot really walk anywhere. I knew his going in so it wasn't a big deal. Someone did tell us about a place down the street called the Beach Club that had activities at night, we didn't get to try it though since it was our last day.

The owner, Jeff is very friendly and helpful and easy to contact if you need anything! Thanks for the great vacation!
