Property description

Romantic 4th floor corner hideaway for a couple, peaceful watercolor retreat for the work-weary, you'll have an unbeatable beach view from the panoramic windows and balcony doors of this Gulf Shores Plantation Building 5 sunsuite, so head for the ocean or just relax, listen to the water, and watch dolphins play from its sunny interior.
A condo Sunsuite means one big room, divided into areas for relaxing watching television, sleeping, cooking and eating, plus a separate bathroom. The previous owner's winter guest couple stayed two and a half months, and assured me they found it 'delightful'. And that was before we repainted and redecorated with water colors and a surfing theme complete with surfer wall mural painted by a local artist. When you reserve, ask for the lockbox code to our hot tubs on the first floor, and newly-renovated exercise room...just in case you feel ambitious! Or take your bike and ride around the complex - there are bike racks provided for you as well as first-come-first-serve charcoal grills scattered throughout the complex. There is a door lockbox with key inside waiting for you, so please come and be surprised by how nice a small beach condo can be, and what a view!!

Location

Car: Necessary

Historic Fort Morgan, turn left when departing the resort,

find at the end of Hwy. 180, along with the Ferry you can ride. There is a fee for both activities, around $4/person to see the Fort, and $25 the last time I rode the Ferry.

A new restaurant, 'Sassy Bass' is located by taking a left turn when leaving the Plantation, not far down Hwy. 180 on the left - I have not been yet, but my friend told me their seafood is Awesome!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Although we are too old for riding surfboards (and far too heavy!) I just love the idea. My husband, an old Navy man, had been hoping for an anchor theme!?? Maybe next time...

Why the Owner Chose Plantation Dunes:
So many happy memories started in this area, from childhood to young adulthood to old age now. My Aunt and Uncle owned a house on the beach we loved to visit on rare occasions when our family was invited, but it was rented and used for business associates most of the time. We rented many places on Ft. Morgan and Gulf Shores and always had a wonderful time.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Such a happy place! From the roll-throwing restaurant to the Track my children and grandchildren have looked forward to their trips with us and without us. (maybe especially without us, once they reached high school age!)
