Quietness and the views
Delmer W. Oct 2021
We have stayed at Gulf Shores Plantation several times over the years, and it is our favorite place to visit! We love the gulf, and we love the laid back, quiet feel of the place. Still there are stores and restaurants within a 15 minute drive. There are pools available should the ocean be too rough - one indoor in case of rain. The facilities are always clean and well maintained, and the price is very reasonable. We always have everything we need and have always had wonderful experiences. We even bring steaks to throw on the outside grill. Highly recommend to anyone!

There is a small stain here or there and somewhat cramped but we loved it. No complaints about the room. The bathroom fan got noisy sometimes but it stopped. The Vacasa staff had the room very clean... much more so than the previous 2 years where we went through Meyer. I hope we can get the room again in the future.
Manager response:
Hi, Therron, thank you for your review. We make every effort to present clear, accurate descriptions of our homes, including pictures and virtual tours, in order for guests to make informed decisions on their rental choices. We encourage guests to reach out with any questions or concerns prior to booking, as we are happy to help. We take guest feedback seriously and have forwarded this information regarding the stains and the bathroom fan to the local staff to be sure they are aware of and correct these issues. We look forward to hosting you again soon!

The combination of pools and beach was great. This place is smaller than it looks in the pictures. So small that you literally have to open the fridge door to fill the dishwasher, but it was perfectly sized for my family of 4. I would certainly return for the same price.
Richard B. Aug 2020
Enjoyed our stay, condo very clean. Looking forward to returning. Breakfast at the Sassy Bass is a must!

The location couldn’t be better. If you want fancy this isn’t for you. But if all you want is a clean place to lay your head and get up to look at the surf and see the surf before you go to sleep then this place is perfect. I does need some touch up work paint wise and such. But that didn’t bother my wife and I in the least. Clean. Convenient. Everything you need. Perfect for us.
Manager response:
Hi, Chuck! We are so glad this home worked out well for you. We are discussing some TLC for the fall with the owners to help spruce the place up and make it even more enjoyable. Thank you!
Katia C. Aug 2020
The location and beach view are excellent. It is located in a secluded beach 20 min away from Gulf Shores Public Beach. The Unit has a poor maintenance. Some appliances were very dusty and the Unit has very serious black mold issues. There are black mold stains on the ceiling and the bathroom curtain was unsanitary and totally covered with black mold spots. We experienced allergy signs ( headache and throat pain) after the second night due to the mold.
Manager response:
Hello Katia, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We apologize that home was not up to our high standard of cleanliness that we hold ourselves to. We have provided your valuable feedback to our local manager. The home has been recently damaged due to the hurricane, and the homeowner is updating and repairing the home. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the chance to host you again.

Very convenient to the beach and pool. Tennis courts, basketball courts, pool, hot tub, and small exercise facility. Wish condo had its own washer and dryer!
Megan D. May 2020
The room was very clean, no signs of mold, mildew or sand. However, the lighting fixtures are dated. The kitchen was awkwardly small. It was so cramped that the dishwasher couldn’t be opened completely. But the view and being on the beach more than made up for the kitchen’s shortcomings.
Elena H. May 2020
Very pleasant stay, everything need for short ocean vacation, especially view from balcony! Morning coffee or evening glass of wine can't be better! Just keep in mind that it is a "studio apartment", so it's fine for 2 people, but more that 2 will be crowd, even it says "sleep 4".
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Elena. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Please note, this unit includes both a queen bed and a sofa bed. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!
Daniel B. May 2020
Overall the experience with this room was not a good one. The freezer smelled of fish terribly, which we dealt with by purchasing air freshener. The worst part was not having hot water. I contacted the management company at 3pm on Saturday and did not get a call from the maintenance guy until 9:00am the following day, which was 30 minutes before we were to checkout of the room. I knew there would be very little to do with the virus restrictions, but you have every right to expect prompt service for emergencies such as this. I am a service manager for an apartment community and I would not accept this of any of my employees, nor would my company. This will probably be my last stay at plantation dunes
Manager response:
Hi, Daniel! Thank you for sharing your review with us. Maintenance did discover the breaker was tripped for the water heater; this was addressed immediately. We hope to see you again!

We loved the view from the room. It was one of the few apts that face the beach.

GREAT ROOM AND GREAT VIEW
Marsha M. Aug 2019
I loved being able to look directly at the Gulf with nothing but sand dunes, beach, and the water in the view.
Jared H. Aug 2019
You’d think for such a nice view of the ocean someone would put some TLC into this property. I was blown away at how many things about your online listing just were not true or partial truth. I do not recommend staying with children in this room. They don’t give you enough things. You have to wash your shower towels yourself. $2 for wash $2 for dry. It was work not a vacation.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the difficult experience you had in our home. Our online listing is up-to-date and accurate, and lists all of the amenities available. It does also note that some of the shared amenities, such as the shared washer and dryer, are subject to a resort fee. Thank you for staying in our home.
Jennifer C. Jul 2019
It was very clean ! The staff was very helpful and the ac works awesome! The beach wasn’t crowded and was very clean as well..Will definitely be coming back!

Awesome people great fun
Jackie W. Oct 2018
This place had a Oder that was overwhelming when you first walked in ..if you turned the a/c on and lit incense it would seem to go away if you were not in the kitchen area..the dishwasher door could only open about 12 in. because refrigerator was too big and drawer by the refrigerator could not open if you did not push in buttons on dishwasher and pull drawer to the left ...it just needs a smaller refrigerator and someone needs to find the source of smell..they need to fix the hot tub jets and tell people the indoor pool is not salt water but chlorine ..the place has potential but I would never stay there again..
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest had to deal with an unpleasant odor during their stay. We have been unable to locate any smells out of the ordinary but have deodorized as much as possible. The kitchen was not built to have a dishwasher, and since one was added, guests do need to open the refrigerator door to get the dishwasher to open all the way. We have reported the hot tub and pool comments to the HOA and apologize for any inconvenience our guest experienced. Thank you!

Great view. Nice unit, nicely furnished.
