We've stayed here a number of times. Home was nicely decorated with plenty of room. There's a (indirect) view of the beach from either the balcony or entry door side. Generally quiet; good weather; overall nice stay.

The decor was so attractive and comfortable bed and pillows. We had a great time. Yhe first day a man knocked on our door saying he was from Vacasa to fix dishwasher.. We did not let him in because Vacasa had not told us he was coming. The air conditioning didn't work for the last day and we did not know how to contact anyone. My suggestion is better communication. We will stay again and hope that is improved next time.
Hello, Betty. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home. We apologize for any miscommunication regarding the dishwasher repairman. Also, we are sorry to hear you did not get to enjoy the air conditioner on your last day. Please know that the air conditioner and dishwasher have since been repaired and are in good working order. We appreciate your feedback as our guest’s comfort is very important to us. We look forward to having the opportunity to host you for a more enjoyable stay.

Close to beach, not crowded, quiet atmosphere

Close to water. Owner is a good American entrepreneur.
Issues: The back door is a sliding glass door and very difficult to keep in the track and open and close. No light or fan operating in master. Other than that it was just fine and clean
Hi, John! We are so glad you stayed with us and appreciate your feedback. This unit's building was hit quite hard by Hurricane Sally and is currently undergoing repairs. We will ensure your issues are corrected during this process. Thank you!

Condo was clean and offered everything that you would need if you were at home. Great view from balcony and all activities just a few minutes walk. Definitely will be back!!!!

We loved the location. Easy to access to the beach.
Ricky B.Jul 2020
The room was excellent and we had everything we needed. Felt like we were home. The A/C quit working and someone was there in a a little over an hour to fix it.

Home was very nice & cozy. Awesome view & the pool area & beach was practically right outside our door, took 1 flight of steps & your @ the pool. This was very convenient for us, the kids swam every single day & we were able to watch them from our balcony the beach is also just steps away. We will be staying here again! 5 stars EASY!

I loved the balcony with the big blue chairs.

Condo was very accommodating. I have no complaints about the condo. We’ve vacationed at Plantation Shores for years because it’s family friendly. However, the family based clientele seems to have dwindled with the younger generation taking over. The condo was perfect for our family of four. It was very close to the boardwalk and laundry facilities. I would stay there again.

Was a great clean condo definitely will stay again
Charles C.May 2020
Very familiar with the area and resort. It's an older building, but still an incredible beach and has very nice pool areas and common spaces. The condo was nice, no issues besides a light and ceiling fan not working in room, which obviously we could live with. Would definitely good back.

Great condo. Everything you could ask for and needed for a great stay. We got this at a great price. The complex this is in has some great pools. Ppl should remember staying at this condon gets you into all the pools. Might be a small walk to the other side but was less crowded pools over by the newer parts. If i had to just say something negative it would be the tvs in the rooms are kinda small. Didn't really have time to watch tv ( why would you when you have a great balcony to chill on ) but im sure it couldn't hurt to toss some bigger tvs. Also the light outside the bedroom by the walk way bleeds into the shades kinda bad. Dont think you can turn that light off. If so we couldn't find it. Maybe get some black outs for that window or somthing. Also ppl should remember to stock up if they dont plan on going back to town. Little stores nare money happy. Thanks for the great stay.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Matthew. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We really enjoyed our stay. Nice view of the ocean. The pools was nice and clean.

Have rented this unit for the last five years in the winter. It is a home away from home. Prior to that I was a guest in this unit for 2 weeks a year since 2003. It is literally a home away from home.
Bonnie/Bruce H.Feb 2020
I've been visiting the Plantation, first as a guest of friends in 2003 and as a renter for nine years. There are many "snowbird: activities during the winter months. A great place to stay.

Vacasa made check in extremely easy (no one had to meet us, etc.) They were available 24/7.
The unit was large enough for our needs. Like that the 2 bedrooms 2 bathroom suites were far enough away from each other that you did not hear the other's moving around or TV.
The view of the beach excellent. The pools were steps away and being on the beach was just so close.
The kitchen was well stocked!
I would stay here again.

The condo was very nice and the beach was awesome!!
Timothy I.Jun 2019
We absolutely loved our stay at Plantation East. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. We loved that we could sit out on the balcony and look over the water. The beach and the pool areas are both well cared for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
James H.May 2019
This isn't the first time we stayed in this particular unit, and over the course of 25 years, we've stayed at The Plantation many times. Our room was very fresh, clean, and attractively decorated with all the amenities to be quite comfortable. The balcony afforded us a good view of the beach and pool area. We'll be coming back to the Plantation again (as usual for us) and this particular room if available.
JOANN G.May 2019
We loved that this is away from the touristy areas and the beaches are quite stunning. Great amenities and a family atmosphere.
Alyson P.Oct 2018
The Plantation property is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the “tourist” area of Gulf Shores. Loved the access to the beach, pools, and especially the Sassy Bass restaurant. The property managers could spruce up the exterior buildings a bit. Overall, we had a good time.
