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 here...as 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.
