                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We're just regular folks that just happen to be at the right place at the right time! I teach school and he works at the AL DOT. We live in North Alabama with 3 cats. Owning our condo has been a dream come true for us. We just hope your stay is as enjoyable as our visits to the beach have always been.

                  Why the Owner Chose Plantation West:
                  We started taking our sons down to the Plantation about 20 years ago. They loved it and we loved it. We watched prices slowly crawl up, up, up always looking at real estate books playing the 'what if' game. When the real estate market took it's turn for the worse we thought it might be time to see if our 'what if' game could be a reality. We contacted a realtor and on one of our visits down, he said he had a special property' to show us. We walked into the condo, looked at the view and decided to take a leap of faith. We love our condo and we hope that you love it too.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The best thing about staying at the Plantation is the location. You are out of the 'main drag' but in 20 short minutes you can be back in the middle of things. That's what we have always loved about the condo complex. Being out means there's not a bajillion people on the beach when you want to go play. Plus our boardwalk drops you off at the end of the beach closest to houses. There is room to spread out and enjoy your section of the beach. Taking the 13 mile trip into town gives you many choices to eat in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. The zoo is very close to our intersection. Kids can enjoy Waterville or the Track. Putt-putt is always popular. And of course there is the shopping at the outlet mall in Foley. It's not a trip to the beach without a trip to Souvenir City or one of the other souvenir shops that are along the main drag. So staying out at our condo at the Plantation gives you the best of both worlds! Come on down!
