Great family vacation spot
This property was as listed. It was very spacious and nice view of the beach. Plenty of kitchen items, I would recommend bringing an extra garbage bag or two as that was one thing we didn't think of bringing. The grounds were nice and clean. The pools were wonderful. Being on a beach resort everyone needs to realize it will always seem that there is sand but it was helpful that there was a small dust pan and broom to clean up. The beds were comfortable. There wasn't any window coverings on the second bedroom's window so we hung a sheet over the bunk beds so the sun wouldn't wake the kids so early. The kids did notice that sometimes they would hit their heads when on the top bunk and some popcorn ceiling bits would be on their bed, so just careful when you get on and off the top bunk. I would recommend bringing a wagon for the beach, it was a simple roll down the hall, hop on the elevator and in less than 3 minutes you are at the beach, which was absolutely gorgeous and very enjoyable. It seemed like a private beach. Overall, we would definitely recommend this property and we would certainly be willing to return here.
Great location! After you find it.
The instructions to check in were never emailed to me. However Michael was very quick to reply to me with the unit number and door code. We had a lot of trouble finding the place as it was never clear in the instructions. Please beware that it is on plantation ROAD not LANE. Our maps originally sent us to lane which is 30 min away. The condo was still sandy especially on the porch. Otherwise very clean and great location. We had a great time once we finally found it. Also maybe I missed it but it was never mentioned that parking cost $20. Keep that in mind. Location to the beach is excellent.
Sorry that the check in instructions were not sent out. It goes to whatever email you list as a contact. You did try to check in earlier than the check in time listed. The $20 parking pass is listed in the paper work, sorry for the confusion.
Great Condo on the Beach
I liked the condo being walking distance from the beach. It was a gorgeous weekend. However, it was far from restaurants, shopping, etc. (The restaurant inside the complex is disgusting. Don't waste your money). The condo was sandy upon arrival, but that is expected. The condo was updated and great for the group we had staying there. The beds were comfortable. There is not a lot of lighting inside of the condo, but during the day it was fine. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.
Dont stay here
First impression wasn't bad, excited to be away and at the beach. The kitchen was sour smelling and the appliances were sticky. Which were over looked, no big deal. The thing that was the biggest turn off was the cockroaches, or palmetto bugs in the room. Contacted the owner and asked if he could take care of the situation and for a partial refund. Said he "took care" of it and had a guy come spray or lay out glue traps, I couldn't tell a difference because we continued to see them. I had video and pictures to prove it, which I forwarded to the owner. I never heard anything more, never recieved a partial refund, only my deposit. We stayed back in the middle of July and I hope this helps out future renter's.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. There was some sand on the floor and a little in the tub, but is to be expected considering the condo is on the beach. Overall a great experience.
We will be back!
This is our second time staying at Gulf Shores Plantations and our second condo. We had 2 more people with us this time and this condo was a perfect fit for our family.
