Other Gulf Shores Properties condo description

Plantation Palms is the newest condominium at Gulf Shores Plantation Resort, a 26 acre ocean-front campus of several condominium buildings and recreational facilities. Please click on 'Rates' above for pricing information. My condo (unit 6208) is on the 2nd floor with great views from inside as well as outside on the balcony! You'll see swaying palm trees, shimmering sand dunes, crashing surf and a beautiful ocean horizon! And the 2nd floor location provides easy access coming and going to the beach without waiting for the elevators! Nightime views are great also ... illuminated pools and paths, beachfront boardwalks, and distant twinkling lights upon the ocean!

Before I forget, please remember to check the 'guest reviews' section to see what everyone says about their stay!
Also, although my condo is on VRBO, I am partnering with Plantation Vacation Rentals in Gulf Shores this year. Once we have a deal on dates and price I will forward your information to their Referral System and they will handle all administrative tasks from that point including receipt of your credit card payment, booking confirmation, arrival & departure instructions, etc. Dealing directly with me, the owner, will save you money, but The Plantation will provide peace of mind that all details of your vacation will be handled professionally and efficiently. And remember, my quote to you is your TOTAL cost including cleaning, taxes, fees, and commissions!

The resort is adjacent to Kiva Dunes golf course, west of downtown Gulf Shores on an idyllic finger peninsula winding westward, ending at historic Fort Morgan on the entrance to Mobile Bay north, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

Next to Gulf Shores to the east is Orange Beach, a sister beach town community adjacent to the Alabama/Florida state line, 40 minutes to Pensacola and the Naval Air Base, home of the world famous Blue Angels.

I am the original owner of the condo which is my 'home away from home'. I love the location's peaceful ambience, quiet sunsets, beautiful white uncrowded beaches, and lovely lush landscaping throughout the grounds and pool areas .

The resort has 6 outdoor pools, an indoor pool, exercise room, steam and sauna rooms, indoor and outdoor jacuzzis, 7 lighted tennis courts, and much more. In winter, the indoor pool building is my favorite place - I do some pool laps, spend time in the jacuzzi, then the sauna and steam bath! The facility also has men and women locker rooms and showers.

And even though The Plantation is away from crowds, you're not isolated! At The Plantation there is a beachside restaurant for drinks/light lunches, upscale dining at The Beach Club Restaurant - 1/8 mile east, great food and sunsets at Tacky Jack's marina restuarant to the west, and lunch/dinner daily at the Kiva Dunes clubhouse, an easy walk from 'the Palms'. For groceries, there are several stores within a 1/2 mile.

All in all, the The Plantation Resort is an ideal venue for a spring break, summer vacation, family reunion, romantic weekend getaway, winter hideaway from the snow and ice, and even 'on the beach' marriage ceremonies! And the best place to stay at The Plantation is Plantation Palms Condominiums!

My condo has ceramic tile flooring throughout except for bedroom carpeting. The balcony has tile flooring, patio table with 4 chairs, and two electric power outlets. Special features in the condo include- a custom designed kitchen with more cabinets and counter space than found in the standard 1BR unit, a full mirrored wall in the living room, and new hallway storage cabinets with bookcase shelving replace the original upper twin bunk bed.

The master bedroom has two large closets (a 5 shelf floor-to-ceiling closet and a 2 shelf double door closet); the living room has an 'office' desk in one corner for reading/writing/computer use.

The condo is on the 2nd floor with great ocean views, thus providing easy access without waiting for an elevator!

And bring your laptop- free WiFi Internet connection in the condo!

My seasonal rental rate schedule below is 15+ % below local rental company rates and is inclusive- cleaning,admin fees, taxes, and commissions are included! My quote to you is your total price!

Please call or use the site email inquiry for any further information you may need.,,including availability as I use the Meyer site calendar, not VRBO's.

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: Hello ! My Name is Tom. I am 74+ years old and retired from Chrysler Corporation in 2001. I am the original owner of this condo, 'my home away from home,' and have tried to make it as nice and comfortable for you as for myself. Please feel free to make any suggestions you feel would be beneficial for your next stay at the beach!

              Why the Owner Chose Other Gulf Shores Properties:
              It is out of town away from the crowds, but next to Kiva Dunes golf course, and just minutes from Fort Morgan at the mouth of Mobile Bay. This is also where you can take the car ferry to Dauphine Island with a bridge to the mainland and city of Mobile. Then, from Mobile, you can drive around the Bay and circle back to Gulf Shores taking the route along the eastern shore through the town of Fairhope. It is a very scenic one day excursion and a great way to explore the area.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The Plantation resort complex has all the amenities one would want. It is quiet and secluded, and has a great beach and ocean views from the condo. The complex has about 26 acres, with plenty of space for kids to roam, far away from the highway 180 entrance.
