Gulf Shores Plantation condo description

No need to climb several flights of stairs or wait on elevators to enjoy our ground floor unit (Unit 1105)! Our home away from home is located in Building 1 which is highly desired because of its private location and close proximity to the beach and pools. It is unlike the other buildings because there are no noisy units across the hallway - just a peaceful sanctuary for nature lovers. Walk out our front door and grill on one of the barbeque grills. Sit on our front porch and enjoy the birds and rabbits in the undeveloped natural beach. Relax on our back deck and enjoy the beautiful sunsets over the white sandy beaches while listening to the waves crash ashore and feeling the gentle ocean breezes! We are just a few steps from two of the outdoor pools, indoor pool, and boardwalk to the beach! Location! Location! Location!
Our condo was completely renovated and redecorated in August 2012. Our beautiful beach view unit contains brand new comfortable furniture throughout. Sit on our new sleeper sofa or plush accent chair and enjoy over 20 ENCORE movie channels on our large flat screen TV. Rest comfortably on our new queen size Restonic mattresses in each bedroom! Prepare wonderful meals in our modern kitchen that is fully stocked with plenty of pots and pans, cooking utensils, silverware, and dishes. The kitchen includes a brand new table with seating for six, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and large island. Bathe in our completely updated bathrooms! The wet bar in the family room provides additional space for brushing teeth, putting on make-up, or drying hair.
We want to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and have stocked our condo with everything you need including games, books, tennis rackets, beach toys and beach chairs. Cable TVs with HBO and built in DVD players are provided in each bedroom and free wireless high speed internet is available as well.
Comfortable linens and bath towels for each bedroom and bathroom make your stay complete!. We are located only two doors down from a coin operated laundry facility and provide you with a convenient laundry tote, iron, and ironing board as well.
This family friendly resort is a 24 hour secured and gated vacation community that offers over 4,000 feet of private beach frontage. It is located next door to the nationally ranked Kiva Dunes golf course and across the street from a boat launch on Mobile Bay. The resort was voted as one of the top family destinations by Southern Living magazine readers and offers numerous amenities including 7 outdoor swimming pools, one heated indoor swimming pool, umbrella and beach chair rental, jet ski, parasail, and banana boat rental, 3 indoor hot tubs, 2 outdoor hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, fitness room, seven lighted tennis courts, lighted basketball court, beach volleyball court, shuffleboard, horse shoes, putting green, game rooms, library, coin operated laundry facilities, barbeque grills, picnic tables, and swings. Also available on site is Connections Grill featuring Starbucks coffee, smoothies, and spirits as well as pizza, sandwiches, and a small convenience store.
The Gulf Shores Plantation is the best of both worlds because it is just minutes away from shopping, restaurants, and entertainment and offers thousands of feet of UNCROWDED beach frontage. Make sure you walk the grounds and see everything this resort has to offer! You will not be disappointed!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Andy, Kim, Sydney, and Sara Grace Estill are from Hoover, Alabama.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores Plantation:
                      We have vacationed at the Gulf Shores Plantation since our oldest daughter was a baby. We are so happy to finally own a piece of paradise!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love the Plantation because it is close enough to shopping, dining, and entertainment, but far enough away from the crowded beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Here, we can truly relax, eat great seafood, and have fun!
