Comfortable 2 bedroom 2 bath condo is located in the family friendly Gulf Shores Plantation. Condo has a great view of the beach/ocean from the front door/breezeway and the balcony has an ocean view and overlooks one of the many pools located on the property. One can walk from the front door to the beach in under five minutes. The indoor pool is a very short walk from the condo door. Our condo is located in Plantation East which grants you exclusive access to the indoor pool and tennis courts. The condo features new mattresses(summer 2013) and a new oven/stove top(summer 2013). Upgrades that have recently been made include a new back door(December 2013) and a new microwave(January 2014).
Miles of sandy beaches with beautiful clear water. The distance from the city guarantees beaches that are not overcrowded which makes it the perfect place to take your family and let your children explore.
The town of Gulf Shores has great shopping(including an outlet mall), restaurants, mini golf courses, zoo and amusement parks. Also, Fort Morgan offers great opportunities to explore and learn the history of the area.
We are excited to share our secluded piece of the beach with you and your family.
We've been vacationing at Gulf Shore Plantation for at least a decade before the opportunity to buy our condo occurred. We will continue to vacation at the plantation for its privacy and seclusion. The miles of gorgeous beaches and the clear water are also a plus. The tennis courts are something we also frequently take advantage of.
This property has plenty of beach. So, even in the the middle of the summer you don't feel overcrowded. There is also a family friendly atmosphere that is associated with Gulf Shore's Plantations. And as previously mentioned our condo association provides you with exclusive access to the indoor pool and tennis courts.
The pictures and description matched the real unit. We really loved how close it was to the pools, boardwalk and beach. Kitchen was well stocked. This was our first time in a condo, so we were unprepared with trash bags, laundry soap, etc., but a run to Dollar General fixed that. Wish there were more board games, to occupy rainy days. Big storm rolled through and wiped out WiFi for a while. It also took out the TVs . Plug in bathroom quit working and resetting the breaker didn't help. All of that wasn't really bothersome. The pull out sofa was not suitable for adult sleeping everyday, although I had to sleep on it daily. Very uncomfortable, dirty-full of crumbs, and no bedding. That was my own only big complaint. We loved the keyless lock and hooks by the door. Overall, I would go there again, but only if there was a new sofa sleeper.
We had a great time and the condo was very nice. It was exactly as the pictures showed. Short walk to the beach. Pool was right at the bottom of the stairs, which was nice for when the little ones were tired of playing in the sand. The only downside was it is a little far from town. We did enjoy the not so crowded beach. Would recommend this property to others!!
My family really enjoyed our vacation, the beach, ocean, indoor pool, jacuzzi, steam room was amazing. .Condo was quite and very spacious. .. Only small problem was no cable and remote for 2nd bedroom..
We had a great time at your condo! Location is great! It's about a 20 minute drive from Gulf Shores but worth it to avoid being overcrowded at the beach. There is a Dollar General not far from the condo for any last minute items you may need. Loved the pools! The condo does overlook the parking lot but you still have a nice view of the beach, which is hard to find at a decent price in the summer months. The condo is nicely decorated and well equipped with kitchen supplies. The master shower could use a little work and the only other thing I would of like to have had more of were sheets and pillowcases. There is only 1 extra set available. Thanks for sharing your condo with us!! We enjoyed ever minute of it!!
A bit dated, but well-kept & wonderful location (great boardwalk to the beach), especially if you don't want a restaurant meal every night. Tub in "master" really needs to be replaced.
The listing was accurate with regard to location. We wanted to be away from highrise condos and touristy strip and this was a good 20 min drive from there. The beach was busy but not overcrowded, we felt like we had space. The Navy's Blue Angels (from Pensacola AFB) were doing practice runs overhead the first day and it was very exciting to see-don't know if that is a regular happening. The photos of condo were accurate looking. We knew going in that this was not going to be an upscale place, however we were disappointed to find how run down and neglected the place was. The balcony door lock handle mechanism was broken, the kitchen sink had a large bowl of disgusting sludge collecting leaking water from pipe under sink, one of the three old plastic chairs on balcony was broken so you couldn't lean back and the place had a distinct odor like someone had smoked in it previously. The owner was apologetic about the balcony door lock and acted quickly to get repair man there the next day but stated the kitchen sink leak was an old issue that never gets resolved because "when the repair man comes it doesn't leak". We had good weather during our stay so fortunately didn't have to spend much time in the condo. The cigarette smoke stink was less apparent the more we left balcony door open to air out the place. The listing photo of the view from condo balcony doesn't show the parking lot view of the beach, we didn't realize how much of the parking lot we would be looking at. Appliances were in great condition and the water pressure in both showers were good! The pools were OK, many families with small kids around, we had two daughters 12 and 15 that preferred the beach . Do not touch the railings on walkway to beach unless you want splinters.
Restaurants we loved: Shrimp Shack and Bahama Bob's. Took car ferry at Fort Morgan to avoid going back through Mobile on drive home to Texas, saved extra 90 mins on long drive home.
