Overview

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!!!

Just what I was looking for.

I enjoyed it. Everything they said it was. Small but comfortable. Nice recliner. Nice view. Memory foam on couch sleeper was comfortable. Immaculately clean.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This condo is much cuter than it looks in the pictures. It's small, but the layout is perfect. Super clean, and has everything you need. The pool is great, and the view from the balcony is just right. Loved it!

It was perfect for the 2 of us! More than we expected.

  • 5 of 5

The location, atomospher, and the condo was wonderful. Loved how the location was close enough to everything but still had some privacy. The resort was nice but the condo was perfect!

This condo was perfect for our stay. It has a beautiful view of both the beach and one of the outdoor pools. The condo is beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and is well equipped with everything needed for an enjoyable stay. You can tell that the owners take pride in making this condo a great place to enjoy the beautiful Gulf Coast.

Great Fort Morgan Location!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this condo during October Fall Break. The condo could not be located in a better location on the property. Second floor overlooking the Gulf and the pool. Owners were extremely polite and easy to work with. Perfect time of year. It's about a 20 minute drive back into town, so this place is ideal for those who just want to relax and enjoy the beach away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores.
