About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This is the 9th year of sharing our 2 bedroom condo with you! This year we have a wider balcony! It is a first floor condo so stairs or elevator are not needed. Pull right up to the condo and place suitcases over the railings of the balcony. We are located in Plantation West, the diagonal building near the houses. We have a fully furnished kitchen includes, dishes, pots and pans, blender, toaster, coffee maker. Master bedroom has a queen bed. 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and twin bed. Sofa makes into a sleeper. 2 full baths. Ceiling fans in both bedrooms and in the living area. Living area, kitchen and baths are painted a light butter yellow with accents in greens and blues. One bedroom is a relaxing shade of blue and the other a calming green. Just what you need for a tranquil, calm home away from home!

If you search Gulf Shores Plantation 1135, you might find us on a popular social media site.

There is NOT a washer/dryer in the condo, but pay washers/dryers are steps away from the unit.

After many years of not having an indoor pool, we recently were able to buy into the brand new pool that the tall building condo owners built. Outdoor pool is about 135 steps from front door. Boardwalk to the beach is about the same distance. Kiva dunes golf course is just yards way. Other outdoor pools and a tennis court are just a short walk across the parking lot. Beaches are beautiful. Let us be a part of your get-away for a relaxing, peaceful time away!

About The Owner

We're just regular folks that just happen to be at the right place at the right time! I am a retired teacher and he works at the AL DOT. We live in North Alabama with 2 inside cats and 2 outside cats. Owning our condo has been a dream come true for us as we visited the area for about 20 years before purchasing the condo. We just hope your stay is as enjoyable as our visits to the beach have always been.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Gulf Shores

We started taking our sons down to the Plantation about 25 years ago. They loved it and we loved it. We watched prices slowly crawl up, up, up always looking at real estate books playing the 'what if' game. When the real estate market took it's turn for the worse we thought it might be time to see if our 'what if' game could be a reality. We contacted a realtor and on one of our visits down, he said he had a special property' to show us. We walked into the condo, looked at the view and decided to take a leap of faith. We love our condo and we hope that you love it too.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about staying at the Plantation is the location. You are out of the 'main drag' but in 20 short minutes you can be back in the middle of things. That's what we have always loved about the condo complex. Being out means there's not a bajillion people on the beach when you want to go play. Plus our boardwalk drops you off at the end of the beach closest to houses. There is room to spread out and enjoy your section of the beach. Taking the 13 mile trip into town gives you many choices to eat in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. The zoo is very close to our intersection. Kids can enjoy Waterville or the Track. Putt-putt is always popular. And of course there is the shopping at the outlet mall in Foley. Also in Foley is the new OWA amusement park with lots of cool places to eat! It's not a trip to the beach without a trip to Souvenir City or one of the other souvenir shops that are along the main drag. So staying out at our condo at the Plantation gives you the best of both worlds! Come on down!

Veteran Supportive! Great Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Speaking on behalf of our Post 9/11 Combat Veteran & their family, this property was perfect for a quiet getaway. The accommodations were perfectly arranged for their family! What made it even more special was the fact that this property owner generously donated the entire week to our nonprofit organization - Operation ReConnect. Upon returning from an overseas deployment, this family was able to enjoy an entire week together and reintegrate as a family unit. There are still great people in this hateful world and we are proud to say we had the honor of working together to support our military families. There will never be enough thank you's for what you have done!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. I was unaware of your organization until this year. I was glad to donate time to the families of the military. Please keep my info and hit me up again next August!

Great location. Right on the beach. Perfect quiet getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Everything with this rental was just right. Right on the Beach. Quiet and not crowded. Charcoal grill was right next to the Dunes. Saw many different kinds of sea life snorkeling right off the beach. Connie and Allen are really nice and easy to deal with. I highly recommend this property. Thank you.

Away from it all

We loved the seclusion that gulf shores plantation offers. Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We were able to unwind and spend quality time together as a family. Ms. Connie was fabulous and extremely helpful.
