Gulf Shores Plantation condo description

As you turn off Ft. Morgan Road onto the GSP driveway that leads to the water you will appreciate the beautifully landscaped grounds and flowering plants. You won't have to wake up our 24/7 guards no matter what time you arrive. As you park and load your luggage carrier on your way to the 4th floor of Building 4 location of Parrots Perch you will notice the quiet and realize you can finally relax here. Elevators have been renovated. Perfect Sleeper mattresses have been purchased. And as you open the door to Condo 4406 you will think you have gone to Parrot-dize! If the draperies are open you can see the Gulf from the front Door...and the kitchen, living room, and master bedrom. My artist friend has painted parrots and palm trees on the wall and I actually found a parrot dining table! Your children will never be bored. They will love to go from swimming pool to swimming pool - there are seven on the property. There is an outdoor shower right on the beach boardwalk for rinsing off sandy feet. Take flashlights and buckets and head for the beach with the children at nightfall where they will be so excited to try catching ghost crabs. You will enjoy the any-weather convenience of an indoor heated pool, plus jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and washateria, all in the same Building 4 as Parrots Perch, and a Starbucks restaurant and fitness room in Building 5 nearby. On the day or night you arrive, find 2 tennis racquets inside and enjoy some exercise after your long trip. No problem if its already dark, just punch the button on the fence that lights up the courts at night.

Parents can watch children play from the wide deck of the condo - the tennis courts are right across the parking lot in back. And courtside you will see a basketball goal - there is a basketball inside the condo for your use while visiting and 2 tennis racquets. Some other recreational features are shuffleboard,volleyball, and a golf putting range where you can practice before heading over to the adjacent championship course at Kiva Dunes, our sister complex next door.

Condo specifics include a queen bed in the blue-and-white master bedroom with private matching bath, and
19-inch flat screen television/DVD combination. Another condo feature that many guests appreciate is the WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE so bring your laptop computer!

The jungle green guest room includes plantation shutters,twin beds, and original art parrot pictures. There is a small TV in an armoire/chest of drawers with mirrored doors for hair and makeup arranging. A separate bath serves these guests which has been remodeled and updated in 2011.

The living room contains a large TV armoire serving the striped sofabed with pullout baskets behind its louvered doors for sofa sleepers to use. Armoire doors have also been fitted with mirrors for these guests. Lined draperies keep out the morning sun for our sofa sleepers.

The kitchen was remodeled in 2013 with new dishwasher, microwave, and disposal, new cabinets and counter. There are plenty of beach-themed dishes and coffeepot, blender, hand mixer, toaster, and of pots and pans. All you have to bring is your food to be the kitchen gourmet or just to boil shrimp in the large pot we keep on hand. You will find a parrot on the wall welcoming you to 4406 where we know you'll have as wonderful a time as we do every time we go!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My extended family has been vacationing at Gulf Shores beaches for as long as I can remember. When my aunt died, there was a beach poem in her funeral service program I cut out and pasted in my first condo guest book. Who wouldn't choose to buy a vacation home in this place?? It has the beach, the pools, the tennis courts and everything a vacationer needs. Indoor pool in my building. Now I always have a happy place to go and enjoy, to take family and friends, and my renters love it too - just read their notes in the 'Guest Comments' section!

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores Plantation:
Uncrowded beach, family oriented complex.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Indoor pool and game room should it rain, 24/7 guarded entrance, small store and exercise room, coffee shop, larger restaurants nearby, next door to award-winning golf compled at Kiva Dunes.
