About the property

Fully furnished "Sunsuite" with DIRECT gulf front southwestern view of gulf.

This condo is a fully furnished "Sunsuite" and has a stunningly gorgeous direct gulf front southwestern view of the Gulf of Mexico. It was recently remodeled and has all new everything. Several of the walls in the bedroom area and living room area have mirrored walls which bring the outside water, sand and sky views inside the condo, giving you the feeling you are on a boat with panoramic views of the gulf. This is why I named her, "SS Island Girl". It has a very intimate and romantic vibe to it making it a perfect romantic get away or honeymoon suite. Perfect size for singles, couples and small families with everything you could possibly need.

This condo was recently remodeled with all new quartz counter tops, new kitchen cabinets, new appliances, cobalt blue tile back splash in kitchen, tile floors that look like wide plank hardwood, tile in bathroom with a gorgeous marlin mural, bead board ceiling, recessed can lighting with dimmer switches, new furniture, new furnishings and new paint. Everything is BRAND SPANKING NEW. It is being offered for rent to the public for the very first time. I designed it to offer the type of luxury beach condo I would want and expect if I were renting it, and I have exquisite taste. My condo is popularly known as "the nicest" one on the entire Gulf Shores Plantation Resort (8 condo buildings) among both owners and renters. I feel sure you will love it. It is especially popular among couples wanting a honeymoon suite or a romantic get away.

This condo is called a "Sunsuite". It is a cozy efficiency which provides everything you could possibly need. It has a full kitchen which includes a full refrigerator and freezer with ice and water on the door, a 4 burner range/oven, a dishwasher and a microwave. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need to prepare and cook meals if you prefer to dine in instead of dining out at a restaurant. It has an open airy concept with the kitchen, dining area, living room area and bedroom area all in the same room with gorgeous direct gulf front views from every nook and corner, offering a cozy, beachy ambiance. It has a queen size bed and a queen size sleeper sofa and sleeps up to 4 guests. It has a large flat screen HDTV and DVD player. It has a dining room table with a drop leaf on each side which seats up to 6 people.

It has a balcony with direct gulf front views for as far as you can see east or west. You can enjoy coffee and breakfast at the bistro table and chairs on the balcony as you watch the sunrise. You can also enjoy cocktails and dinner on the balcony if you want to watch a spectacular sunset. Yes, you can see both the sunrise and the sunset from the balcony, depending on the time of year. From my balcony, with binoculars, you can see the schools of porpoises swimming east and west along the gulf close to the shore.

This condo is in a resort called "Gulf Shores Plantation Resort" and is in one of eight condo buildings, with my building being the nicest one and also the closest one to the beautiful turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Guests have access to all the property amenities including 6 outdoor pools, two outdoor baby pools, a heated saline indoor pool, 6 tennis courts, 2 basketball courts, 2 outdoor hot tubs, 2 indoor hot tubs, a gym with free weights and machines, a sauna, showers on the ground floor in the sauna room, an on-site restaurant called, "Sassy Bass", poolside swings, outdoor grills, picnic tables, covered cabanas at pools for those who prefer shade, volleyball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a putting green, and of course, the spectacular beach on the Gulf of Mexico just outside your door! All these amenities are yours to use! (Please note you will need to bring your own basketball, volley ball, tennis balls and racquets, and golf clubs).

Beach chairs/umbrellas, paddle boarding, parasailing, kayaking, banana boat rides, and jet skis are also available for rent on the beach just down the boardwalk in front of my condo. On the ground floor of our building facing the Gulf of Mexico is Sassy Bass Restaurant. Right next door to the east of Gulf Shores Plantation is the Kiva Dunes Golf Course for those who enjoy a round or two of golf.

About Kelly Huber

I live in Murfreesboro, TN and I have owned and managed both long term and short term rental properties for over15 years. I bought this condo in 2003 and just recently completely remodeled it with all new everything.

I love the work I do and I strive to provide the type of rental experience I would want and expect if I were renting, whether a short term beach front condo in Alabama or long term house in a residential area in TN.

Kelly Huber purchased this studio in 2003

Why Kelly Huber chose Gulf Shores

I chose this property because it is a direct beach front condo with amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico in a resort loaded with amenities in a family friendly resort. My condo is in one of 8 condo buildings in this resort and is in the building closest to the beach. It has gorgeous beach views from my balcony for as far you can see east or west and has beach views from everywhere inside my condo. With binoculars you can see schools of porpoises swimming close to the shoreline. The beach is sugary white sand and is very soft to the touch, like powdered sugar. You can see both the sunset and the sunrise on the water, depending on what time of year it is. This place is majestic!

What makes this studio unique

This condo is in a resort with several great amenities, including 6 outdoor pools, one indoor heated saline pool, 2 outdoor hot tubs, 2 indoor hot tubs, a gym, a sauna, 6 tennis courts, 4 basketball courts, outdoor grills and picnic tables all over the grounds, a restaurant onsite, a golf course right next door and within walking distance of my parking lot, 24/7 security, volleyball, shuffleboard, horseshoes, putting green, swings all around the pools, beautiful grassy areas and flowers all over the property, shaded pavilions, and of course the beautiful Gulf of Mexico right outside my door.

Beautiful view!! Definitely be back.

  • 5 of 5

Our host, Kelly, was the best host we have had. Very informative from the beginning. She was available for any questions throughout our stay. She told us about all the amenities at the Plantation where the condo is located and about the condo. Love the location. The Plantation had several pools, hot tubs, restaurant, and of course the best part - the ocean. It's quiet and very relaxing. Orange Beach is close and there is all tourist attractions there and in Gulf Shores. Our condo was very nice and very close to the boardwalk going down to the ocean. And the view of the ocean from the balcony is spectacular. Would recommend this condo and host Kelly to any couple. We will definitely be back!!!

A Perfect Place for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Kelly's place was great! The apartment was clean, cozy, and had an amazing view of the Gulf. The on-site restaurant at the resort had tasty options for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the proximity to a world class golf course is a plus. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a beach getaway!

Condo was very cozy and quiet with a lot of amenities. Beach was just steps away.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i really enjoyed the Fort Morgan area. The condo was well off the beaten path of Gulf Shores but just a quick drive and you could be anywhere you wanted to be to eat or do other activities. The owner (KellyHuber) was great to work with, she made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Will definitely be back in that area and at her condo soon.

Georgeous Condo and a Five Star Gulf Front View!

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed finding this gem of a place! I cannot say enough about the beauty of the condo. You can see how much thought and effort was poured into this condo with the intentions of making it a very special place to feel good about your stay. That tells me that the owner truly cares about providing you a wonderful vacation spot.

The view from the windows are so wonderful! You truly feel like you are on the beach! The private beaches make it that much nicer. I love running down one flight of stairs to go to the Island Grill. This one is a big winner for me! I strongly suggest that you check it out and see for your self! I will be back for years to come!

Kelly is so nice to work with she is very accommodating which is very nice. Best vacation ever!
