Why Sherry Seal chose Fort Morgan
We have always had a dream of owning a place in the mountains of Tennessee and another on the beach. This condo is part of that dream coming true. The best part is getting to share our home and get a chance to know other people from around the country. We feel that the Gulf Shores Plantation will be enjoyed by our family for generations to come.
What makes this Condo unique
My husband and I have traveled to Mexico, Aruba, Curacao, Dominican Republic and the Bahamas. When we first saw this property in Gulf Shores, it reminded us of the all-inclusive resorts we had visited in these destinations--the numerous pools, lush landscaping, activities, etc. We find that this area retains the charm of a non-commercialized beach.

Really nice location and the condo had everything we needed.
Property was great. Nice pools, tennis, and golf nearby.
Great Property for Spring Break Trip with Family!
Wonderful spot to bring the family for Spring Break, not too crowded, definitely not crowded with college/high school age students, very clean condo, clean pools, easy beach access, great beachside grill, kids enjoyed everything including the tennis, basketball, hot tub, indoor pool, and the condo. Sufficient space in the one bedroom one bathroom with bunk bed and sleeper sofa for family of five (young kids), however, as the kids get bigger and older we will definitely have to upgrade to a two bedroom two bathroom. Overall wonderful family experience! Will be coming back.
Beautiful View, Super Clean
The condo was very clean. All dishware and plenty of towels were provided. Balcony is super spacious. The view of the grounds/gulf was amazing. The restaurant there was super nice as well. Pool and hot tub were clean, and chairs/ umbrellas were provided at the beach. Probably the best place I’ve stayed at in Gulf Shores/ Ft. Morgan for sure!
Great place to get away and completely relax. The owners were very welcoming and checked in to make sure things were going well. Absolutely love you can walk right out to the beach. Very peaceful piece of paradise!!
The husband and I 'wintered' at this condo for January and February. It was by far the best rental we have ever stayed in. It was clean, well equipped and had all the comforts of home. The view was outstanding so even on cold days, the beach and Gulf waves were within our view. The complex offered many activities and the on-site restaurant was very good. Our host Dennis Seal was the best! Friendly and easy to work with. He checked on us frequently to make sure we had everything we needed. We were very happy we chose this condo.
