About the property

2014 Renovation - 3 Bedroom And 3 Bath In The Best Family Complex in Gulf Shores

If you like beach life, you will love Seashell Sanctuary. This property has it all. You name it, from a wide beach with beautiful water. Pools galore! It has basketball, tennis, horseshoes and shuffleboard. Hot tubs, indoor pool and a workout room and did I mention the beach? From the moment that you turn onto the property and drive down the beautifully landscaped, winding entry road, you will know that you have found something special. Families that discover the Plantation return year after year. It is far enough from the congested condo section of Gulf Shores to benefit from much less crowded beaches yet a nice beautiful drive into town will land you at some of the best restaurants, night life and family entertainment around including water parks, go carts and miniature golf.

Bring the whole family and share the expense. Seashell Sanctuary will sleep 18 people if both sides are rented. The “A” side (VRBO 608340) will sleep 8 and the “B” side (VRBO 608341) will sleep 10. We have just added black-out curtains which adds to the privacy and comfort enjoyed by the guest using the new, as of 2014, sleeper sofas. The three baths really come in handy for this as well. One of the baths is located on the main level with the living room and one of the bedrooms, the other two baths are located upstairs with the other two bedrooms.

Seashell Sanctuary has been newly renovated, as of 2014, and features three bedrooms and three baths on each side of the house. The exterior renovation was just completed in October 2014. There are new granite counter tops in the kitchen, and baths along with new mirrors which have added a touch of class to the beach. The furniture is all new along with the refrigerator, washer and dryer. New 32” flat-screen TV's have been placed in all of the bedrooms and the living rooms have received new 40” TVs so that you don't have to miss the big game while you are at the beach. For those of you who would rather see a good movie we have included new DVD players. Movies can be rented on site at the Plantation Welcome Center. New outdoor furniture on the over-sized deck will allow you to sit in comfort while enjoying your breakfast in the morning, coffee in the afternoon, and wine in the evening while listening to the music of the waves crashing against the sandy shore and watching the children swimming in one of the beautiful tropically landscaped pools.

Why Darryl Meadows chose Alabama

We looked at beach property for almost 4 years. We couldn't find a place that the whole family could agree on that is until Seashell Sanctuary at the Plantation. It had everything we wanted and things we never dreamed would be in one package. Our daughter wanted swimming pools. Our son loves to bicycle. My wife wanted a spacious house to entertain and enjoy the family and everyone loves the beach!

Excellent place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. Beautiful and close to the beach. Very relaxing. And they supplied many extras that are uncommon for rentals. I felt at home! The only negative is that the pool and hot tub were closed at times. And the internet and tv were not that great. But that's only minor stuff, as we had a great time.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Seashell Sanctuary was outstanding. Family members had no difficulty finding the location as they arrived from 4 different states. The property was beautiful; spacious, clean and even had a Christmas tree to add to the holiday feel. A bit chilly on the beach but quite the treat to walk on such a beautiful, secluded beach. I hope we have the chance to return and would highly recommend this property.

We had a terrific 3 day weekend for 3 older couples. Loved the house, the gated resort and the beach

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house (tons of Beach charm), the layout (perfect for 3 couples) and the location (secluded but close enough to town for entertainment). Well appointed, super comfortable, very close to pool / hot tub as well as the ocean. Only negative was Internet access was dismal.
