              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: We love to travel and enjoy being in nature with our family.

              Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores Plantation:
              I grew up with a family home in Gulf Shores but find the Fort Morgan area so much more peaceful. Our condo is far from the street, so our children are safe and it is quiet. There are wildlife refuge areas and uncrowded beaches, walking and biking trails, and water on both sides- the calm bay for sailing, kayaking, and fishing, and the gulf for swimming and dolphin spotting. This resort has so many amenities, we never get bored. If we do, Gulf Shores has a lot to offer with restaurants, shopping, zoo, water slides, putt putt, etc. These are some of the reasons we chose our 2nd home here and not Florida.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We love watching the rabbits at dusk and the moon rise over the water. There are several small lakes with alligators, turtles, herons, and waterlilies. We have 7 pools so it it's never crowded. The courtyard area is a great place for hide and seek and volleyball. There are 27 miles of paved bike trails as well as wooded walking trails We see dolphins jumping everyday around 5 or 6 o'clock and the sunrise and sunset are spectacular!
