Welcome to our home-away-from-home at the beautiful Gulf Shores Plantation Resort located at 400 Plantation Road, Gulf Shores, Alabama 36542. The Plantation is a gated, family-oriented, vacation resort offering over 2000 feet of private, sugar-white, beach frontage on the Gulf of Mexico, natural sand dunes, and beautiful landscaping. You will be amazed at the activities available for all ages. This resort is perfect for your family getaway. You will want to come back year after year.

The Plantation offers an incredible amount of on-site amenities and for you golfers, the Plantation is next door to the nationally-ranked Kiva Dunes Golf Course which also has a restaurant. Perfectly located, the Plantation is minutes away from a variety of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment of Gulf Shores, yet our beach is not crowded or over-developed. We also have Sassy Bass restaurant on-site as well as Uncle Leo's food truck during prime seasons.

Our privately owned, 3rd floor, gulf-view, two-bedroom, two-bath condominium is ready and waiting for you. The building is perpendicular to the beach with an elevator. Luggage and shopping carts are available for easy loading/unloading. This unit is the second one back from the beach on the West side providing one of the closest 2-bedroom / 2-bath views of the gulf at the Plantation. The balcony and master bedroom window have a beautiful Southwest view of the gulf. You are literally steps away from the beautiful sugar-white sand beach.

NEW FOR 2018: New Granite Countertops in the kitchen and on the bar, new refrigerator w/ ice maker, and freshly painted master bedroom and both bathrooms.

We have ceramic tile throughout the kitchen, dining/living room, hall, and bathrooms. The living room includes a 42-inch HD flat screen television, DVD, queen-size sleeper sofa, accent chairs, and wet bar. The kitchen has brand new granite counter tops and refrigerator with ice maker. It is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences of home (Appliances include refrigerator with ice-maker, dishwasher, glass top range, and microwave. Toaster, coffee maker, utensils, and dishes with service for 12, etc. also provided). Card table/chairs and TV trays are provided for additional seating. Both bathrooms have counter height vanities and we provide 6 bath towels (one per person) for your use in the condo during your stay.

The master bedroom has a newly remodeled private bath, firm queen-size bed, and 32-inch smart HD flat screen television. The 2nd bedroom has two twin beds and a 32-inch HD flat screen television. This unit can comfortably accommodate up to six people. Decorated with a beach theme, your home-away-from-home at the Plantation promises you a wonderful family vacation on the Gulf of Mexico.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just arrived back on 3/31 and we were in building 2 - I have to say that I have never stayed in a more well stocked, clean and immaculate condo before this one. We had everything we needed and more - the beach and pool stuff that was provided made things so easy for our 3 year old. The unit was spotless and I spoke with some other people on the beach who were staying in other units and they all had complaints about their units. Well, I raved on and on about your unit and even handed out your name, number and website to these other people who were complaining so that they would just rent from you all in the future.

I was so pleased with the accomodations that we already know we will be returning next year! This was a well needed vacation and it was such a pleasant surprise to have all that we needed! Thank you so much for everything!

Great, well maintained, well situated unit!

  • 5 of 5

We love the Plantation because it's away from town, has uncrowded beaches, abuts a nature preserve, & has a very casual unpretentious feel. We've stayed 30 or more times over the years. This is one of the best units we've had in terms of location, cleanliness, decor, and kitchen contents. (We -- 2 parents and a college student -- also like the owner's unit in Building 1.) The third floor hallway of this building has skylights, bringing in natural light, & the hallway is open-air, allowing easy cross ventilation in the unit. The unit is just two in from the beach, so it's a quick trip to the boardwalk. The laundry room is nearby, making it easy to check on the progress of a load. Sunset views from the living room are gorgeous.

The owners of this unit have decorated it in a fresh, clean style that brings in beach elements but avoids clutter and kitsch. The furnishings were in good shape, and clean. The leather couch and living room chairs were comfortable, as were the dining chairs. The rectangular glass dining table takes up very little visual space yet can fit six to eight people. A wheeled kitchen butcher block island of just the right size provides useful prep & storage surfaces. The owners have converted what used to be a wet bar by removing the sink, creating the perfect spot for our charging station and electronics. There's plenty of storage in every room.

The kitchen is easy to work in and attractive, with newer finishes. The deep sink and granite counter tops are great! We found, as with the owners' other units, that kitchen implements & gadgets, pots, pans, and storage containers were plentiful. We love to cook and this unit made that easy during our ten-day stay. (Of course, if you have a favorite pan or knives, bring them along.) There is a restaurant on site, and several nearby if you don't want to cook or drive to town.

The bedrooms and bathrooms had been painted recently and are attractive. Plenty of towels, blankets, and pillows were provided. A card table and chairs are stored in a closet, and there are some pool & beach toys too.

The unit comes with access to the pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna in the Dome. Having them so near is a plus in the winter!

The owners have been really great to work with, which is why we rented from them again this year and hope to do so again.

Amenities were great and room was clean

  • 4 of 5

Some updates are needed such as the screens on the windows and a lamp in the second bedroom needs to be replaced, it was taped together. Great location and nice furishings.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about the taped lamp. It was broken by the guest that checked out the same day you checked in and unfortunately was not able to be fixed properly for your stay. It was fixed correctly after your check-out. We are actually here now and the screens are being replaced as part of our off season updates. We hope you consider staying with us again so you can see this year's improvements!

Plantation, Gulf Shores--family oriented!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your condo in building two. It was roomy enough for our family of six! The beach was beautiful, the soft white sand and not very crowded most of the week. The ability to experience the different pools on the property was exciting four our young children. It's far away from the traffic and nightlife of downtown Gulf Shores, yet close enough to venture out. Our weather was perfect and we can't wait to return in the future!
