About Erin

We purchased this unit as a place for us to come and create wonderful memories with our family. We hope you enjoy our 2nd home as much as we do.

Erin purchased this condo in 2010

Why Erin chose Fort Morgan

We chose to buy at Gulf Shores Plantation due to the true beauty of the location. The beaches are very large and have beautiful sand dunes. We also love that the beaches are not crowded. We also wanted a place that we felt was safe for our children to play.

What makes this condo unique

Our kids really enjoy the pools. The lagoon style pool in front of our building is one of the nicest pools we have been to. We also love having The Connections eatery close to our building with great food and Starbucks coffee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time on our vacation this past week! Thank you for sharing your condo with us! It was so cute and perfect for our little family. Our girls loved having their "own" beds :). I hope we can rent from you again next summer.

Very comfortable and stylish with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our grandchildren for a long weekend at the beach. The condo was very comfortable. Having two baths was great, since there were four of us. All the condos in this particular unit have an ocean view, and are close to the pools and one set of tennis courts. We really loved the indoor pool, as it was a cool weekend. Although a bit out of the mainstream of the Gulf Shores area, the location suited us, as we took the ferry from Ft Morgan to Dauphin Island, and then to Mobile for the first day. There are plenty of attractions in the area. The grands loved OWA, the new amusement park. We would certainly book here again!

Clean, up to date unit in older, well maintained development

  • 5 of 5

Loved this location for a quiet beach get away, lots of pools to choose from including heated indoor pool ensures that there is something to do regardless of weather. A small cafe on site met a lot of our needs. Only issue we had with the unit was that the beds were softer than our liking. Other than that, this unit has everything you need for the beach....will book again.

More than Expected

  • 5 of 5

My aunt and I spent last week in this unit and were very, very impressed with the experience we had. First, we were scheduled to show up the same day Hurricane Nate showed up and Erin, the owner went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Since no one was coming in for a few days after us she allowed us to change our dates by a couple of days to miss Hurricane Nate without losing any time. When we got to the room it was very clean, the kitchen had all updated appliances, we had a good view of the ocean. The room was equipped with every thing you could possibly need from pack and plays, hangers, a beach cart (which we were very grateful for), sand toys, umbrella, and so much more. Erin was quick to respond to all of our questions and was very helpful, kind, and generous. We had no complaints about this unit or the owner and highly recommend it for an enjoyable, stress free vacation.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed staying in Erin's condo. I could tell it had recently been renovated with beautiful, relaxing decor. We felt safe because of the 24 hour guard and the ability for us to set our own passcode for the condo's entrance door. People were even leaving their beach toys on the beach overnight with no worries of them being stolen!

Upon entering the condo, there was a closet which contained 2 beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas, sand toys, a beach cart, and a broom and vacuum. Hanging on a towel rack was the key to enter the indoor pool, sauna, steam room, and fitness room. The kitchen was beautiful, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. It came equipped with everything you could think of. We even found Tupperware containers that we were able to utilize in packing a picnic to take to the beach. The kitchen is open to the dining area, which seats 6, and the living room, which seats 4. The living room has a very comfortable couch that pulls out into a bed of needed. There is a flat screen TV with every channel we could imagine. The living room is attached to French doors/screen doors and the balcony. The balcony overlooks the beach on the left and Kiva dunes to the right. The balcony was shaded which provided a cooler sitting area with 3 chairs. There are 2 bedrooms that each have an attached bathroom. A small desk is also in the condo. We were surprised to find that beneath the TV were some games to play and even some books and magazines. The kitchen even came with some toddler sippy cups, plates, and utensils. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and each room was provided with extra bedding, extra towels, a dresser, and a closet with hangers. Everything was clean and well kept.

Both the outdoor and indoor pools were very nice. The indoor hot tub was a good size. The steam room and sauna were nice as well. The beach was withing a short distance from the condo. We never had a problem finding a parking spot. The beach was never crowded. In fact, if you walked down a little on the beach, at times you could feel that you had your very own private beach. The location was very peaceful as it was away from all of the major tourist traps of Gulf Shores bit close enough to drive to in 10-15 minutes.

Be sure to bring beach towels, trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwasher detergent, and your own toiletries.

Erin always answered our questions quickly, and she was very helpful. We plan to return!

Great place

We had a great time here. The condo was very nice and clean. We had lots of fun at all the different pools and it was super easy to get the beach with two small kids.
