About the property

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

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 2 of the bedrooms and the living rooms and Master bedroom 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!

The house was very good with everything you need to live with. Very convenient to pools and the beech. The owner was very helpful with all my questions and responded very quickly. This is a wonderful place and will use again when returning to Gulf Shores.

The house was excellent and very well appointed. Clean, well decorated and furnished, and plenty of room for our family of 9. Very convenient to the beach and pools while being away from the main bustle and crowd. The owners were excellent with email communication.

Our 11 day stay at Seashell Sanctuary was better than I had hoped and a big part of our wonderful experience was due to the cottage. It was one of the best cottages/houses we have rented. We have had larger homes but none as well stocked as Seashell! Everything you could possibly need in a kitchen in the way of pots and pans, crock pot, blender, serving pieces, etc. is available. Generally, you have one garbage bag, 1 dishwasher packet, 1 roll of TP in each bathroom, etc. Not the case at Seashell. Even something as simple as those items being available makes your stay more pleasant but they also had toiletries for your use should you have left something at home. The cottage is in perect condition and beautifully decorated. You feel like you are staying in a private home. Having the use of indoor and outdoor pools was great for this time of year. Our grandsons, ages 3,5, and 12 loved the indoor pool. It was also so nice to have so many beach toys for the kids and chairs for the adults. We also took advantage of the hot tub and work out room. The only thing I would tell anyone planning on a stay is about the TV reception. Most likely it is a system for the whole resort and nothing Darryl could control, but if during your stay you are planning to watch a certain event (sports, political, special program, etc.) you could not count on good reception. That was not a big problem for us but just a bit frustrating as the reception would be on and then off. We would not hesitate to stay at Seashell again. I had a chance to speak with Darryl on the phone and I knew if we had any problems they would be addressed in a timely manner! Thanks Darryl and family for offering such a beautiful cottage for your guests pleasure. I intended to write in the guest book, but only remembered as we left the grounds!
