Gulf Shores Plantation condo description

You can have it all: All the amenities of a resort, yet the comfort and privacy of your own beach condo. Add to that 3000 feet of uncrowded, beautiful white sand beach accessible from your doorstep, and you have the perfect combination for a family vacation or a romantic getaway.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo offers all the convenience and comfort of home. The kitchen is fully equipped with a built-in microwave, ceramic top stove, dishwasher, new island, blender, coffee maker, mixer, slow cooker, toaster, dishes, pots, pans, and utensils. We have a clothes washer in the condo, and a dryer is available in the coin-operated laundry just down the exterior hallway. Linens and iron are provided. Outdoor grilling area is just steps away.

Our condo is ideal for 4 guests and with the sofa (not a hide-a-bed), can accommodate up to 5 people. The master bedroom has a KING size bed, flat-screen 32” TV, DVD and ceiling fan. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and ceiling fan. The master bath was recently remodeled and features a 5-foot, tiled, walk-in shower, granite vanity top and updated fixtures (cool showerhead). The other bedroom has its own ceramic tile full bath/shower. The living room has comfy seating, a new 42” flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, and a deck to enjoy the outdoors. Free wireless high speed internet is available in the condo and around the complex.

Our condo is close to the indoor pool and the best outdoor pool and the boardwalk to the beach. Gulf Shores Plantation is a gated resort community offering 7 pools (one indoors), multiple hot tubs, courts for tennis, volleyball, basketball, shuffleboard, and horseshoe, an on-site Starbucks coffee shop, a fitness center, adjacent Kiva Dunes golf course, and various beach rentals (lounge chairs, umbrellas, jet skis, parasailing).

No smoking and no pets are allowed.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1997

          About the owner: I am partially retired but keep active in the financial planning field and volunteer work. My wife Janet and I worked and raised our family in Ohio and after retirement, made Gulf Shores Plantation home -- our little piece of paradise. A year after being widowed, I met Karen. We enjoy walking the beach, dancing to all the live music down here, and participating in the various 'snowbird' activities available each winter. We hope you will find our 'bit of paradise' as beautiful, as tranquil, and as lively and fun as we have found it to be.

          Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores Plantation:
          My family has been vacationing in Gulf Shores since 1979. My children, grandchildren, and extended family just love the beach and all the activities available in this area and spend part of every year here. Gulf Shores Plantation was a natural choice for a permanent vacation spot because of all the fun we'd had adults and kids alike. The beach is incredibly beautiful and not too crowded, the grounds are lovely and well maintained, and the condos have everything one needs. Neighbors are friendly, and there's always something to do... be it a swim in the indoor pool, walking the beach, playing basketball, volleyball or tennis, shopping in nearby Foley and Gulf Shores, gallery hopping in Fairhope, reliving history at Fort Morgan, exploring Bellingrath Gardens, or just lounging poolside and chatting with neighbors.

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          Condo is fully updated and close to the best outdoor pool in the entire complex, and also the boardwalk to the beach, the indoor pool, hot tub and sauna. With all the activities available, I can promise you will not be bored. Yet, it's quiet and peaceful enough to spend an afternoon napping or reading (or both) in a chaise lounge. Staying in a gated community provides a sense of security and you can just relax. You're at the beach, after all.
