WELCOME TO GULF SHORES PLANTATION RESORT!
You’re guaranteed to love our hidden beach hide-away right on the Gulf of Mexico. Like stepping back in time to your childhood beach trips, this family-friendly resort is a quaint gated, vacation community offering 4,000 feet of private, sugar-white beach frontage, natural sand dunes sprinkled with sea oats, and beautiful landscaping. Activities are available for all ages and the Plantation is perfect for family getaways. We think you’ll agree that The Plantation offers the BEST VALUE on the Gulf Coast for your vacation getaway.

ABOUT OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Our privately owned, 2BR/2BA non-smoking condominium is nice and clean, newly updated and decorated with your comfort and convenience in mind. This soothing, contemporary end unit offers more privacy and more natural light than other units and features tile floors, crown molding and 1' faux wood blinds throughout. We added a built-in cabinet with a large mirror in the dining/kitchen area that offers extra counter and storage space - as well as an extra spot to put on makeup or blow dry your hair. The roomy kitchen is fully equipped, has freshly painted kitchen cabinets and all major appliances including a bagel toaster, electric can opener, blender, coffee maker, George Foreman grill, new smooth top electric stove, new microwave, new dishwasher and new refrigerator with ice maker. There is dinner service for 12, which means you’ll spend less time washing dishes and more time enjoying the beach! There's also plenty of plastic cups, bowls and plates for the kiddos.

The comfortable master bedroom has a private bath, queen-size Tempurpedic bed, new drop cloth curtains and 19-inch flat screen television with DVD. The guest suite also has a comfortable queen-size bed, drop cloth curtains, 19-inch flat screen television with DVD and private bathroom. The living room is newly redecorated, has a 27-inch television and DVD and a comfy full size pull out couch. The dining area features seating for 6 and a new, built-in cabinet offering additional counter space, mirror and storage. Hairdryers are provided in both bathrooms and there is also a full size ironing board and steam iron here for your use.

FREE wireless, high-speed internet and cable television are available throughout the unit. Our condo is ideal for 4 guests and with the full-size sleeper sofa, this unit can also accommodate 2 additional guests. Professionally decorated in a welcoming “Joanna Gaines meets Coastal Living” style, our condominium at Gulf Shores Plantation promises each guest a wonderful southern-style vacation on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: We are delighted to have you spend your vacation at our condo. We hope you enjoy our second home as much as we do! Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for making your stay even better. Brandon & Jeannie Horton P.S. Gulf Shores Plantation is a quaint little resort that feels like you took a step back in time.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We have always enjoyed visiting The Plantation because it is a quiet, family-friendly, low-density resort that is off the beaten path. This resort has more room and charm, and so much more beach frontage than most other places and it doesn't feel overcrowded - even in the busiest season. We have always thought The Plantation was the best kept secret on the Gulf. We were thrilled to be able to purchase this unit and we enjoy going down as often as possible. The Plantation is one of our favorite places to go to relax and just get away - both in the summer and the winter. The Plantation is our HAPPY PLACE!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have thousands of feet of uncrowded sugar white beaches, onsite dining, plenty of activities for kids, a huge indoor pool, and historical Ft. Morgan and the Mobile Bay Ferry are just a few miles away. The stars seem to shine brighter out Ft. Morgan Road. We are next door to a championship golf course at Kiva Dunes and we often have breakfast at the Kiva Dunes Restaurant - or down the road at Tacky Jacks (overlooking Mobile Bay). Our favorite ritual is walking on the beach sipping our coffee, watching the sun rise and picking up beautiful shells. And on many mornings, you'll see schools of dolphins playing and the Pensacola-based Blue Angels flying overhead.
