About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-4)

GO HOME RELAXED. Come and enjoy our unit at the Gulf Shores Plantation. A stay here will allow you to enjoy the beach as it should be. Gulf Shores Plantation has all the amenities one would expect to find at a resort yet provides a great getaway from the crowds. This is a spacious complex designed with families in mind. One can relax and enjoy a peaceful stroll along the shore watching for dolphins. There are multiple activities available on site including horseshoes, lighted tennis and basketball courts. The condo has 2 outdoor pools, one indoor pool, a sauna, a steam room and a large indoor hot tub. There are numerous outstanding golf courses very close to the complex. The nationally recognized Kiva Dunes course is located at the Plantation. The beautiful Peninsula course and The Gulf Shores Golf Club are both less than 10 miles away. You will pass these courses on the road out to the Plantation.

Our second floor unit is directly on the gulf. We feel it is the ideal unit. Our tiled balcony overlooks the beach and the most beautiful pool in the entire complex. Whether it is coffee in the morning or cocktails in the afternoon, the view from our balcony can't be beat. The unit is Wi-Fi ready in case you want to tell your friends what they are missing. Our unit has a 42 inch TV and DVD in the den. We also have a 32 inch TV in the bedroom and a CD/radio for your convenience. Towels and sheets are provided. It has a COMFORTABLE queen size bed, a queen size sofa sleeper and a berth bed suitable for a child. The upper berth has been covered to make it easier to store luggage, etc. We also have a stand up pantry to store those snacks that are such a necessity at the beach. We have a dishwasher. The laundry is conveniently located very near our unit.

We were renters long before we were owners. We have kept that in mind as we furnished and decorated our condo. We attempted to make our unit one we would enjoy visiting. We hope and believe you will also.

If we can be of any help, please let us know.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Debbie and Rocky - we had a great time at your condo and the area in general!! We could not believe the miles and miles of white sandy beaches - we definitely were not expecting that - beaches yes, but not that expansive!! We loved the location of the Plantation and the view from your condo -my husband rarely "sits down and relaxes" and I found him out on your deck several times "just enjoying the view"! We arrived late on Sunday but we did go walking around for a little bit. We slept in on Monday - it was raining in the morning anyway - but then in the afternoon, we went to Bon Secour wildlife refuge, did some hiking on their trails, and then we went to Fort Morgan and toured the fort - enjoyed both of those things very much. We ate at LuLu's on Monday night (what a place!!) and got to see and meet Brent - love his music!! Tuesday was a beautiful day - we did some beach walking in the morning, took the ferry to Dauphin Island, toured the estuarium, then we drove to Gulf State Park and ate at Live Bait that evening. On Wednesday, we took some time driving to different areas as we headed back to New Orleans for our flight home later that afternoon.

Thanks again - it was all you said it was - and we hope to be back!!!

Perfect getaway on the gulf.

  • 5 of 5

The complex was very clean and tidy which surprised us since a tropical storm had just been through a day earlier. The condo was clean and organized just the perfect size for the two of us. The view from the balcony was beautiful. We looked out onto the gulf and the large pool was just below us. It was a short walk to the beach or the pools. The condo is located a distance from the general hubbub of the island but it’s an easy drive to different activities for kids if they get bored with the pool and ocean. There is one restaurant we walked to and another one that we drove to. Both are called Sassy Bass but they have different menus. We stopped at a grocery on our way in but there is a small place close by to purchase essentials. We were looking for a quiet place to relax and enjoy the sun and water and this certainly fit the billl. The owners were very accommodating and understanding when the tropical storm hit and we decided to arrive a day later rather than risk driving in the rain all day. They even adjusted our bill to reflect one less night. By the time we got there the sun was out and we had three days of fantastic weather.

Perfect for families and a view that can’t be beat!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The condo was perfect for our family of 4. Our boys shared the sofa bed and the master bed was very comfortable. You can’t beat the proximity to the beach or well kept pool that is perfect for all ages. The view from this condo cannot be beat! Debbie was wonderful and so easy to work with. I am so glad we chose this condo for our family beach vacation. We made memories that will last a lifetime! We would definitely stay here again.

perfect place for a small family or group of friends

  • 5 of 5

This is now one of our favorite beach condos, it was clean, quiet and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. It's also far enough away from town that its not too crowded but close enough to town that it only takes a few minutes to get to all the shops and restaurants on the main strip in Gulf Shores. Great place to stay, we'll be back!

Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Fort Morgan was just the getaway that we needed! We could not have asked for a better place to take our kiddos for their first trip to the ocean. The condo, the complex and the beach were great! We really enjoyed all of the amenities that there are right in the complex without having to leave. Sassy bass was delicious and not pricey for a family. The beach was not only beautiful but fairly quiet, not as much hustle and bustle as Gulf Shores. The staff at the Plantation were very friendly as well. We will definitely be returning :)

Hard to beat for the price

  • 5 of 5

This is a nicely kept unit with a great view of the beach, for the money, you'll have a hard time finding a better place for a small family. The owners were easy to work with making things that much more enjoyable.

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for my family of 4. Great view of the beach and pool area from the balcony. Very nice area that is about 10-15 minutes away from the main area of Gulf Shores and that made for a very enjoyable time on the beach since it was less crowded. I will definitely stay here again when traveling to the area.
