Overview

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!

What to know, before you go!

  • 3 of 5

PROS: Great location, especially if you like a slower pace. Beautifully decorated inside. Beach was pretty and white sand. Lots of pool access....but lots of little kids and noise.

CONS: no screens in the house windows. Unable to see through most of the windows due to broken seals. Broken beach umbrella, not equiped for out of town guests who can't bring their own. No cooler. No wifi at house, and no password or sign on provided for guests. And 12 + miles to town. Strange mirror located above master bed on the 20 foot cove ceiling. Appeared to cover and old skylight (?) But i am not sure if there was a camera behind it or not. Just kind of creepy and odd.

Beautiful house and perfect location!

Something for everyone - beach, pools, sports, etc. We traveled with our two boys ages 9 and 12 and they stayed entertained the entire time. Will definitely go back again!

Beautifully stocked home with a fantastic view of the gulf. We were very comfortable all week.

  • 5 of 5

My children enjoyed the pools and the basketball court, and I enjoyed the short walk to the beach. The community was a very family-friendly place on the quiet end of the beach.
