About the property

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. Black-out curtains have been added which adds to the privacy and comfort enjoyed by the guest using the sleeper sofas which feature memory foam toppers for added comfort. The three baths really come in handy for this as well. One of the baths is located on the main level along with the living room and one of the bedrooms. The other two baths are located upstairs with the other two bedrooms. One is, of course, an en suite.

Seashell Sanctuary has been recently renovated and we are constantly making improvements. Some of the latest improvements (2017) are:

New, secured, high speed internet provider. (Huge improvement)

New cable TV provider.

Deck furniture.

Additional King bed (replaced the Queen).

All new and larger Smart TVs.

Seashell Sanctuary features three bedrooms and three baths on each side of the house. 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 was all new in the latest renovation along with the refrigerator, washer and dryer. All of the TVs have been upgraded (2017) with new, improved and larger smart TV's throughout. The living room now has a 55 inch, the master has a 48 inch and the other bedrooms has 40” TVs so that you don't have to miss the big game while you are at the beach. 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 Gulf Shores

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!

Amazing! A perfect beach vacation experience with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier! We walked in at check in and we fell in love. All the comforts of home with little extras. The home is beautifully decorated and really put you in the beach mood. My kids were so happy with the house being so close to the pool and beach. The kitchen has a blender and waffle maker which we put to use. The front deck was the perfect place to sit and relax with a great beach view. The beds were very nice and we slept like babies. DVD players in the bedrooms and we could sign into our Netflix accounts to watch movies as well. Loved the location and not being so close to town. Wonderful family vacation house. Overall we couldn't have been happier with this vacation home. We will definitely be back!!

We rented both sides for a couples get away. The location is awesome and both sides are beautifully decorated. Darryl was very accommodating and friendly. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. I highly recommend Seashell. We will definitely stay there again.

Great owners and a great cottage. Adorable on the outside and inside!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. It was adorable on the outside and inside. Great location, close to two pools, hot tub, volleyball court and boardwalk to the beach. The owners were great to work with and we will definitely consider staying here again. The beach water was clear and we loved watching the sand crabs. Great little vacation get away!

This was the perfect vacation spot for my family

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for the 8 of us! It was close to the beach and the decor was so welcoming! We loved sitting out on the deck and we grilled and ate outside! The house was well stocked with everything we needed! We will stay again!!!! The owner contacted us to make sure we made it and to let us know we could text or call him if we needed something!

Beautiful home and location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Alabama and Gulf Shores is such a beautiful place. The house is very nice and right across from 2 pools, a hot tub and a short stroll to the gorgeous beach. The house makes you feel very welcomed, like a guest, not a renter. Great owners and we would definitely stay in this house again.
