Why Michelle DiChiara chose Gulf Shores
We bought this condo in 2013. We love the location of the unit. It is conveniently located near the elevator and the stairway. We also own the unit next door, # 2215. We bought it in July 2016. We have actually been property Owners for 6 years We love the area. We also love the Gulf Shores Plantation, we've been coming here for many years.

Unit desperately needs updating. Kitchen is fine, but bathrooms....ick factor. Two bedrooms, but extremely small bedrooms. Hard to find room to get into suitcases etc.... With that said, nice resort. On ocean, nice pools, pretty grounds. About 20 minutes to get to more popular restaurants and shops.
Great Location. Room could use a little TLC
Check in process was very simple. The amenities on property were great. The room was nice and fully furnished including everything you would need in the kitchen. Towels and rags in the bathroom. Great working hot water unit and cold AC. My one complaint was the couch, chair, and beds. All three of these pieces of furniture are due to be replaced. Small, easy-fix details thru out could use some attention. Rusty shower rod. Patch on the wall that hasn't been painted. Screen door on porch was off the tracks sitting on the porch.
All that said, if the couch and chair were replaced, I'd have no problem with the rest and would stay there again.
We loved our stay! The place was perfect and the owner responds quick. Will be going back!
Great Beach Location!
Our second floor condo was surprisingly quiet and only a short walk to the beach. This was a mother/daughter get-away and we four found it roomy enough for comfort. There were a few things that could easily be corrected that we'd like to recommend. All lamps need to have light bulbs in them and be able to find how to plug them in. The two bathrooms connected to each of the bedrooms were nice and had adequate towels. But there needs to be more than 1 roll of toilet tissue and 1 very small piece of soap in each of the two bathrooms. Because of the outside lighting ,that we understand is important, shines so brightly into the bedrooms even with the blinds provided, room darkening curtains would be a real plus! For the most part the place was clean but the higher up you look the heavier dust one can still see. These are minor things and did not keep us from having a super good time or from recommending renting this condo.
The online view of the property was of the beach, our view outside the window was a parking lot, you had to look about a quarter of a mile away to see the ocean and not much beach. We have been to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach many summers and have always stayed on the beach, had the beach outside our balcony, that is the only way we book and thought this was that way. The garbage disposal did not work, the toaster was rusted, you had to hold the handle down on one toilet for it to flush and in one bedroom instead of a light blocking drape an ugly blanket was hung. One of the lamps in the bedroom didn't work and the sliding door was almost falling off and my husband had to fix it. The kitchen faucet had issues, it leaked around the bottom.
We decided we had spent a lot of money to be there, so we were going to make the best of our family together. We had fun on the beach and in Gulf Shores, but we will not return to Gulf Plantations.
The description of my property is exactly as I have described it. Please read over it before renting. I want everyone to be happy that stays with us. I am definitely not in the business to have unhappy renters.
The property is adjacent to Kiva Dunes Golf Course, and is located 15 minutes from Historic Fort Morgan, and The Penninsula Golf Course.
