About The McCormicks

We are retired professionals who enjoy this area so much that we relocated from Atlanta to be closer to our beach condo. We've enjoyed and owned in the Plantation resort for many years and have been fortunate enough to be able to upgrade to better views and a higher floor with this studio. If you liked our previous studio condo, you'll love our all new Efficient-Sea Condo!

The McCormicks purchased this condo in 2017

Why The McCormicks chose Gulf Shores

The wide, long-range views make this studio condo a gem! When we first saw this area years ago, we could not believe the stunning natural beauty and expansive sugar-white beach was still unspoiled. We fell in love with the Gulf Shores Plantation Resort for its quiet, family friendly atmosphere and its beautiful views, grounds, and facilities. Everything we could ever want in a vacation we found here, and we're excited to be able to share it with you!

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the panoramic views in this bright, "just right" studio. It has everything needed for a beach getaway, and then some: outstanding gulf views from two large windows and the balcony, a balcony big enough to lounge on and enjoy the surroundings, a comfortable living/sleeping area; and now, a complete, fully updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances to prepare meals if we want. Plus, there's plenty for families to do without ever leaving the resort! When we saw the sunrise over the water, we were hooked! Now, our favorite way to start a beach day is to sit on the balcony and watch the sun come up while sipping fresh coffee brewed in the kitchen. A bonus is being able to see July 4 fireworks from our own balcony!

Wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful condo with a gorgeous view. The condo was very comfortable for our family and the amenities were great for the entire family. We will hopefully be returning to this one soon.

Beautiful views from this renovated condo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this renovated condo for a weekend, and it was great! Everything was comfortable, clean, and new. We could see down the beach and the ocean waves from the windows and the balcony. The sunrises were spectacular! The indoor pool and spas were wonderful to have at this time of year. We’ve rented from these owners before, and they are helpful and easy to work with. We’ll be back!
