Overview

About the property

Beach Condo: 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (unit sleeps 6)

Our home-away-from-home beach-side condo is newly renovated and beautifully decorated. Enjoy a restful nights sleep on our new queen size Beautyrest mattresses. There is a comfortable sleeper sofa in the living room with a new mattress. Check out our colorful Key West furniture on the balcony. Take advantage of our fully stocked kitchen with granite counter tops. We installed a wrap around eat at bar...we are the ONLY one at the complex that offers extra cabinet and counter space. Throughout the kitchen, main living space and bathrooms we have tile flooring. In the bedrooms we installed solid imported bamboo flooring.

The resort has two onsite cafes; beach front "Sassy Bass" has some of the finest seafood quisine in Gulf Shores and Kiva Dunes Restaurant with their very own Tiki Bar. If you enjoy nature you will LOVE our rabbits, doves and more while you cook on the outdoor grill. The grilling area is located just outside our condo and is surrounded by wooded sand dunes with a little view of the beach beyond. In the evenings you will enjoy the song of our resident whipporwill. Our guest suite has its own separate door to the veranda which is perfect for early risers and morning beach walks. We have beach chairs, toys, nets, boogie boards and an umbrella in our storage closet for our guests to use. If you hit the right time of year you might get to see the hatching of baby sea turtles! Keep your eyes on the waves because our dolphins love to show off.

Gulf Shores Plantation is a gated Resort with a 24/7 security team. We offer a wide range of unique opportunities and amenities. Our guests enjoy year-round swimming, heated saunas, hot tubs, golfing, basketball courts, tennis courts, fully equipped work out room, shuffleboard and horseshoes. We also love relaxing strolls down the awesome boardwalk to our pristine white beaches. Join our daily 'Sunset Club' on the boardwalk to watch some of the most beautiful sunsets ever!

We have a lot of return guests and hope you choose to join our extended family. Pack your bags, you will love our peninsula paradise!

About Carol

My husband, Lance and I have been married since 1977. We have a daughter and a son who have blessed us with three wonderful grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter. Some of our most precious memories were made during our summer vacations to Gulf Shores. We hope you take home your own precious memories when you leave our little slice of beach heaven.

Carol purchased this condo in 2012

Why Carol chose Alabama

We bought our condo at the plantation versus the heart of Gulf Shores because of the year round use. Our condo is just steps to the indoor dome complex as well as outdoor pools. We have a large expanse of world famous sugar-white beaches.

What makes this condo unique

You can't beat the fishing and the boat launch for the bay is across the street from the entrance to Gulf Shores Plantation. We have shuffleboards, horseshoes, tennis courts with tennis balls and raquets for rent and basketball courts with basketball provided. In the high-rise there is a beautifully furnished library for bookworms and down the hall there is a fully equipped weight/workout room. After your workout, head to the heated indoor dome pool, spa or steam room, then on to the sauna to dry out! You can end your day with a sunset stroll down the boardwalk to the beautiful beach.

Awesome view, beautiful beach and very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year renting this condo. We will be returning next year too. Easy people to work with. You're not working with a rental company just for somebodys investment. This is their home away from home. Very helpful with any questions you have. The condo is perfect for our needs. It's nicely kept and has that beach feel to it. You won't find better people to rent from! They make you feel like a friend.

Great Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 adults and two small children and the condo was perfect for us. We utilized the condo to cook all of our meals except we ate out once and grilled once and we had everything we needed. We loved the amenities of Gulf Shores Plantation and of the condo. There were plenty of beach toys in Carol's closet. The kids swimming pool area was great. My kids loved it. Carol was excellent to work with and we will definitely be back.

Family Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so cute and beachy. I loved the beachy furniture in the condo. It had everything that we needed to cook full meals in the kitchen. It is just footsteps from the boardwalk and white sandy beaches! This place had it all. Pools, sauna, hot tubs, workout room. The grill was right outside this condo too and we saw a few bunnies while we were there! The indoor pool was awesome! We had 2 teen girls with us and they had a blast. The only downside I would say during our stay was the kid above us (this is a first floor condo) was loud and running back and forth quite a bit and you can hear that noise through the condo. It wasn't constant and thankfully we were not in the condo all day long. Overall, this was a great experience and we really enjoyed our stay. It was our first time in Gulf Shores and definitely will not be our last. Carol was so sweet and very helpful when I had any questions about the condo and the amenities. We will definitely be back!

Thank you Carol and Lance for allowing us to use your condo, everything was great. 1st floor was very easy with loading and unloading. Your unit had everything that we needed for cooking, it was very close to the grill, indoor pool, and outside pool and we all slept well.We look forward to visiting again and thanks again for allowing us into your second "HOME" at Gulf Shores Plantation.
