The living room has a sofa bed, queen bed in the master, two double beds in the guest room and a twin trundle bed in the loft, giving everyone a place to get a way. Each room has it's own TV and DVD players.
The kitchen has been remodeled with granite counter-tops and everything you would need to cook and entertain. There is no washer/dryer in this condominium; however, there is a laundromat on your floor for guest’s use.
It's the perfect place for a family get-a-way or just a relaxing vacation for two. COME & ENJOY!!!
We love the beach and everything it has to offer. Being at the Plantation gives us the feeling of Really Getting Away From It All.
The plantation offers us the opportunity to go to the beach without all the crowded beaches and remembering the way it use to be. You can sunbath, build sandcastles, collect sea shells or just sit and read at one of the 6 pools on the property. Kiva Dunes Golf Course is located at the entrance of the property so don't forget your clubs. If you like to fish, you are located in Paradise. There is a marina down the road and the fishing off the point is some of the best. This Family Friendly Resort is gated and offers you a private beach of white sand that has something forall ages to enjoy.
Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This property was such a good choice! We were pleasantly surprised to see the beds in the spare room were double-beds and not twins. Made for extra space for kids! The decor was cute and fresh feeling. You could see and hear the water and waves crashing when it was quiet outside. The many pools were also nice.
The only negatives I would say was the wi-fi was VERY off and on. It also rained quite a bit, so the cable wasn't very stable, but I'm pretty sure that was due to the weather. The washer/dryer was also broken, so washing/drying clothes in the public facility(onsite) will cost you $4 each load, plus detergent. Thankfully, you get a couple of detergents complimentary in your room... :) Also, be sure to read what all is complimentary for your stay. HINT: You will need to bring extra garbage bags and dishwasher detergent if you plan to stay more than a couple of days.
As for the beach, it was nice. The only problem there was the jellyfish randomly biting all of our children at some point. A tip: take some sort of card(debit/credit), and scrape where the jelly fish bite is to get the stingers out. This is supposed to be the best relief. :)
The location(Fort Morgan) was nice and quiet as well. Beach wasn't too crowded, you could spread out easily. Crab hunting at night was a favorite! Didn't feel touristy at all. Only negative is there was only one restaurant that you could drive to without going all the way back into town. We took plenty of groceries, so this wasn't too big of a deal for us.
Overall, it was a good trip - can't wait to go back!
Liked the resort but condo was much smaller than expected. Condo more suited for 6 people. 10 is a real squeeze. The pools and beach were
awesome. This is a wonderful place where you can get away from the crowds. It is about a 20 minute ride into town. Do take extra towels and washcloths for your stay. Washing and drying is expensive.
Well, I'd like to start out by saying the décor in this condo is perfect. Very beachy!! It is set up so you have everything you need......mostly. A week before our trip we were told the washer/dryer broke but there was a laundry mat on site. That was going to be a pain but at this point there wasn't anything I could do about it. We didn't even need to do laundry until our last day and we went down and found the credit card option on the machines were not working. You're 10 minutes from town so it's not like you can just run over and get quarters. This was disappointing. The trundle bed upstairs was broken and just laying on the floor. And there wasnt a complete set of linens for the sofa bed. All in all it was a good trip because everyone had a great time but I don't feel that we got what we signed up and paid for.
We had a great time at this property. The only negative things were the washing machine was not working upon arrival & neither was a bedroom fan. That would have been nice to have been notified of prior to arrival. Beautiful view, nice to have luggage carts on the third floor, & good sized porch.
We stayed in this condo last week June 10-19 2016
The condo was nice. Was disappointed the washer/dryer wasn't working and was never told. They said they forgot to tell us. A piece was on order and wouldn't be in for a few weeks. That was one reason we decided to go with this unit. There was a laundry facility down the hall. Other than that it was nice. We went with 5 kids. The boys bunked up stairs in the loft. And the girls in the 2nd bedroom. Great view from the 3rd floor. With it being the top level there's not a covered porch (if it rains) and you wanna sit outside. Luckily it only rained one day of our stay. They had lots of movies for adults and kids that was nice. Everything you need to cook meals. Friendly and helpful employees. Overall it was good. And I would recommend this unit.
The complex was fantastic! Very well maintained, quiet and beautiful beaches. The condo was clean and very well stocked for cooking. For our group of eight, that was a definite bonus. The only downside was that the description said unit slept a max of 10 and photos made it look roomy. In actuality, the place was quite cramped for our crew. Luckily, we had beautiful weather, so it wasn't an issue. If it had been a rainy it would have been tough! Regardless, we would go back~maybe with 6 people.
Fort Morgan is located about 5 minutes from the condo. You can tour the Fort and see all the history of this historic site. Grab the ferry and head to Dauphin Island and visit the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. A short ride north of there will take you to Bellingrath Gardens.
