We loved the laid back environment. Sassy Bass was an amazing place to eat. Only problem we had was day one trying to get into our condo. We could not get into our condo & could not reach ANYONE from the numbers I had to find out what was wrong. The security guards were the only people anywhere and they had no idea who to even call. Just so happen a lady with a clipboard was coming out of one of the other buildings and we asked her for help. She worked for Vacasa and helped us. Turns out we were sent the wrong door code! I sent an email but haven’t gotten a reply. But other than that everything was perfect.
Manager response:
Hi, Leanne! We sincerely apologize for the lock-out you experienced and are sorry our delayed communications due to the busy summer season caused you any duress. We will always get back to our guests as soon as possible. Thank you!

Sunsets and wind off the gulf are two of the greatest qualities of this condo.

Pros: Beachy decor; everything (almost) you need in the kitchen plus some - tons of dishes, glasses, cookware, silverware, etc.; everything you need for the beach
Leaving this info to hopefully help someone else pack less:
Beach accessories galore - sand toys/shovels/buckets, boogie boards, noodles, 4 beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc. PLUS the front bedroom closet had a hand air pump and electric air pump to blow up rafts.
Fans - small fan in master, large fan in 2nd bedroom
Iron/ironing board, blow dryers, air mattress, lots of extra pillows, extra blankets, vacuum
LOVED having the washer/dryer in unit...washed clothes before we left and re-packed so that we didn't have to bring sand/dirty clothes home with us.
Simple check-in/check-out (Just a door code emailed)

Cons (Just a couple):
1. New dishwasher needs to be "set" into the cabinet. It was irritating to load the dishwasher and feel like it was going to fall out.
2. The one thing we didn't have for the kitchen was oven mitts. I looked everywhere and never found any. We had to use doubled up beach towels to get things out of the oven without burning ourselves.
3. I will agree with others in saying the mattress was very uncomfortable. It almost felt like laying on the beach with lumpy sand underneath. However, we were usually so tired that we didn't notice too much.
Overall, this was a great place to stay, and we would stay again. I think a small "flyer" would be beneficial to give some tips on the complex (like the fact that you go to the small building where you enter to get supplies for basketball, shuffleboard, and tennis) and where to find some of the items available in the unit (like the things located in the front closet).

My only other tip would be to bring a wagon to haul everything to the beach. It's quite a walk, and having one would definitely be helpful!
Manager response:
Hi, Jennifer! We appreciate you taking the time to tell us about your stay and are glad to see you enjoyed your time here. The dishwasher has been secured by maintenance, and we will make sure oven mitts are provided. Thank you!

This was a very nice unit with good ocean views

We rented the condo for a few days during 2019 Fall break. The condo was clean and the living area furniture was nice. The views of the ocean were good. However, the beds in both bedroom were not comfortable. The refrigerator top shelf was missing and the microwave frame was cracked, but it was still operational. The dryer in the unit took forever to dry clothes. When I booked the unit I thought it was in Gulf Shores, but it is actually in Fort Morgan. This was not an issue, but I wish I had known and I would have bought my groceries on the way in. I would definitely book a condo at Plantation Palms again, as I loved the facilities, but probably not this one unless the issues are fixed.

We had a wonderful stay at Plantation Palms. Its located very close to the beach and within a few minutes drive of Gulf Shores. The condo was very nice and had a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. There were two large pools right in front of our condo to swim in. One was a salt water pool. The condo was clean and kitchen was fully stocked. There is a restaurant at the resort as well. We would stay at this place again. Only thing the condo needs is a new washer and dryer and new carpeting/tile flooring in the bedrooms.

We had a lovely time in this beautiful condo!! We normally stay next door at Plantation West but our condo was not available so we took a chance and tried VRBO. Although it was quite a bit more expensive (about $800 more), we really enjoyed it. We especially loved the larger balcony directly facing the ocean! Only recommendation I have for the owner is you need new mattresses in both bedrooms. Wow! They were extremely uncomfortable! The spare room mattress was even visibly in bad shape with a large bump.

We would rent again but only if our normal condo is not available. We prefer the other condo because it offers 3 queen beds (preferred over the pullout sofa) (it has a loft with the 3rd bed) and it is $800 cheaper and a little closer walk to the beach. (Oh! and comfortable

Thank you for sharing your beautiful place! We have been visiting this beach heaven for 17 years and love it!!

We had a blast on our vacation, and this space was perfect for our family of 6. They had all the amenities we needed to have a great beach vacation, including sand toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, etc. Sitting on the balcony listening to the waves was my favorite! The property has a lot of amenities and we were thankful for 2 pools since the ocean was off limits due to strong rip tides. Great vacation and would definitely rent again!
