About Marty King
I was born in Massachusetts and raised in New Hampshire. I graduated from high school when I was 18. After I graduated from high school, being a standard issue boy, I just hung around the homestead, enjoyed my mothers cooking and worked an easy 40 hr. a week job. Life was ideal until one day the blissful foundation of my life was shattered. No, not shattered, vaporized. My father returned from work one evening and asked me what I planned to do. I wasn’t sure what he meant so he made it very clear. He said, “Whatever your plans are they can’t be carried out in this house.” I was firmly being asked to leave paradise. At that moment I believe I underwent all of the symptoms of shock. If that wasn’t enough three days later I received a letter from a tall, thin, white bearded man in a patriotic top hat and tuxedo stating that he wanted me. Well that was it. I was out of there for sure. I joined the Navy and ended up in the Sea-Bees. Great outfit by the way. I spent four years in the military and while serving I met my wife of forty-five years. After being discharged from the service I went to college for a while but I soon discovered that college life wasn’t for me. I was hired by AT&T and worked for them for thirty-one and three quarter years. I am retired now and have rediscovered my blissful foundation. My wife and I have two wonderful daughters who both have great husbands. Two daughters, two husbands equal four grandchildren two boys and two girls. We all live close to Birmingham, Alabama. People ask me why I didn't return to the 'North Country'. My answer, 'I don't live where water stops moving during the winter months.'
Marty King purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Marty King chose Fort Morgan
My wife and I purchased this condo for several reasons. One reason is I like the beach, especially the Gulf with its warm water and white sand. There are no rocks or oyster shells to step on and no seaweed to get stuck between your toes. My wife never did like the beach because when she was a little girl her parents took her to the Gulf and rented a motel room X number of miles from the beach. They had to drive to the beach, find a place to park which was usually across the road from the beach. Next they had to dodge the traffic to get to their spot on the sand which was surrounded by bunch of folks. When fun in the sun, surf and sand was over they headed back to the car. Arriving at the car they were wet and covered with sand and salt. Then came the uncomfortable ride back to the motel while shedding sand and salt crystals in the car. Gulf Shores Plantation is a very well maintained facility inside and out. Upon driving up to the building you pull under a portico to unload your vehicle out from under the sun or heaven forbid any rain that may fall. There are a number of wheeled conveyances for easy transport of your belongings to the room. Two elevators are available and the number of times we have been there I have never had to wait more than thirty seconds for the doors to open. There isn’t a road to cross to get to the beach only a short stroll across the boardwalk, TO KEEP EVERYONE OFF OF THE DUNES, and you are on the beach. The beach is private so it is not overcrowded. When the day of fun in the sun, sand and surf is over you again cross the boardwalk to find a shower at the end of it to wash off all of the sand and salt before you return to the unit. The facility is family oriented so you won’t find wild beer parties going on up and down the beach. What more can you ask for? Well let's look at the unique benefits.
What makes this Condo unique
Gulf Shores Plantation is twelve miles west of Gulf Shores. That means no bumper to bumper traffic to fight but it is within a few minutes of water parks, restaurants, museums, gift shops and other entertainment in Gulf Shores. Sitting on the 5 by 17 foot balcony on the sixth floor you have an unimpeded view of the beach and you are close enough to hear the waves breaking on the shore. The unit is on the east side of the building so the balcony is bathed in the cool morning sun and shaded in the afternoon while being made more comfortable by the refreshing sea breeze which is almost always present. There are 6 outdoor pools. One of the pools is a large kiddie pool that is one foot deep at the shallow end and about five feet at the deep end. I believe the shallow end takes up more area than the deep end. Two hot tubs are located in Building #5. THE NEW INDOOR HEATED POOL OPENED ITS DOORS 12/16/2015. Tennis lovers will find seven lighted courts and one unlit. Seven horse shoe pits, one basketball court, two shuffleboard courts, a Jerry Pate Signature Golf Course and a putting green to satisfy most all sports lovers. Para sailing is available as well as jet skis to rent. An exercise room is on site to keep you in shape. Charcoal grills and picnic tables are located around the building. Satellite TV with HBO and Disney is in each unit. Wi-Fi is throughout the building. If you have to work while on vacation The Plantation offers FAX services and an ATM. The Sassy Bass Restaurant opened the "Island Grill", a full service restaurant, on the ground floor, ocean side of the building. The food and service is excellent. Prices go from "beans and rice" to steak and lobster. No driving to find a good place to eat. Take the elevator to the ground floor, walk to the ocean end of the building, sit down and be served from a menu loaded with fabulous selections. Family oriented, a 24 hr. gate guard, security patrols in the parking lot day and night.

It was a great place right next to the beach and the kitchen, bathroom etc were good!
It was a great place right next to the beach. Easy to access and lots of room. It was great having two bathrooms with showers and the balcony was the perfect view! I would recommend this place! Thank you!!
Loved this property. The location and activities available were fantastic.
Everything is so close making it easy to keep kids entertained without losing the ability to just relax. The view was great. I think the Sassy Bass restaurant has become my families new favorite... which is really saying something because my kids never agree on food choices. We loved that there were extra activities available. It was perfect for our short getaway!
Beautiful View, Family-Friendly and Plenty to do!
We can not thank you enough for letting us stay in your beautiful condo! We loved being able to see both the Oceanside and the bay side. Your condo was well equipped with everything we needed and then some. We enjoyed the beach items you have provided, it was nice not to buy/rent and know we didn’t have to bring that stuff back with us. We will definitely recommend your place and stay here again!
Good value and a very good owner to deal with.
It was as advertised. Very comfortable with a wonderful beach at our door. It was a little far to Gulf Shores and groceries. We enjoyed our stay.
Great time relaxing at the beach!
This was our first visit and we loved it! The condo was very comfortable with plenty of room for a family of three or four. The kitchen was very well appointed and the unit was clean and really cute. We had a beach view and spent hours walking and collecting shells, etc. Even when we were inside the condo we could hear the waves! Parking was great. Everything was very simple and just went very smooth. We were very happy.
The view was great! Very quiet. Loved the boardwalk directly to the beach. Very family oriented. The carpet was in the process of being replaced on the floor we stayed on. So that was a little bit of an inconvenience. The room could be updated, but overall was a great place to stay.
