First off, I give this 5/5 stars because its obvious the owner of this condo spent some money fixing things up & refreshing the condo. Brand new stove, coffeemaker, cookware, vinyl flooring, paint, etc. Definitely appreciate the updates. The location is insane. 25-50 steps from the pool, about 100 steps from sassy bass (GREAT food btw) and of course the insane view of being right there on the beach. What a hidden gem. The coffeemaker was actually broken but we could tell it had never been used so i emptied the water out and took a look and it seems a pump wasn't connected properly. 2 second fix and then delicious coffee! The other thing we appreciated was at first we thought there were only a couple of towels...NOPE! We opened the sink counter in the bathroom and hit the mother lode! THANK YOU FOR THAT!!! Our family of 4 only managed to go through less than half of the stack. Very much appreciated the towels. Other than that the owner was kind enough to provide washing machine powder, diswasher tabs, sugar/sweetner for for coffee, diswashing soap, etc. There was definitely some painting & construction going on outside but that's to be expected in the off season and didn't bother us a bit. In fact we appreciated that the building was being updated.

Now for a few things I think can be improved on that can take this to the next level:

1. Need to provide a comforter for the pull out couch!! The sheets are too thin but luckily we had an old moving blanket in the truck but I would highly recommend getting a comforter for the sleeper sofa.

2. Make a laminated list of a few things like where the towels are located, etc. We had to hunt to figure out a few things.

3. Fridge icemaker didn't work. I peeked behind and saw a water line running to it but maybe this is off because of covid? No big deal..just thought I'd mention it in case someone wanted to check on it. Fridge was plenty cold for our drinks.

4. Some type of blackout shade needed for the bedroom! The light in the outside condo breezeway is super-bright and the vinyl blinds did little to block it out at night. just a simple pull down blind or something in the window frame would have worked wonders.

5. Speaking of lights; the LED bulbs in most of the fixtures looked like a mix of very early LEDs a put out a very garish 'flourescent-ish' color. I would suggest going to home depot or amazon and buying a 10 pack of soft white LED bulbs and swap them in all the fixtures & lamps. That would make a huge difference in making the condo feel more cozy. We ended up leaving the lights off almost the whole time.

I'll stop there before you make this place too good and the price goes way up! :-D THANK YOU FOR A GREAT MINI VACATION! We loved it so much we stayed an extra day.

I went to stay at one of the Vacasa home at the Plantation East in Gulf Shores this weekend for my birthday, it was wonderful. First I like the security they have at the gate made me feel safe and the easy excess to the beach was nice. Everyone was social distancing and still was able to have alot of fun. Will be visiting again soon.

Perfect location with an absolutely beautiful beach. We can’t wait to go again.

Our room was very nice.. plenty of pillows. The kitchen was stocked with lots of things to prepare food while we stayed! It was overall very nice. I will say the bed was very firm which I know is how people like it just not me. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 was that the elevator was in the middle of the building, our condo was on the end, and it was an inconvenience with my family as stairs was not an option. Overall great though.

Out dated, not enough towels for the week. Smelled very musty. Not close to the activities and restaurants. Security was very nice and helpful. Property grounds well kept and nice. Many places that is the same price and has lots of place near by. I think the price is a little high for not having many places around. Loud noise like a generator running most of the night.

This condo had a great view of the ocean and pool. The condo has basic supplies for you. It is small but perfect for a couple or small family. There is a nice pier beside the pool and condo to walk to the ocean. The pool was very clean, big, and nice! We enjoyed sitting on the balcony each morning and night.

Nice condo with a beach view. The owners have it nicely decorated and they thought of everything. From plenty of blankets, to the laundry detergent pods, to the blender, you will feel right at home. TV in the living area and bedroom was a nice ammenity as well. Will stay again when back in the area!
