Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 2nd Floor, View, Wagon Provided, Sleeps 4

Our fully furnished condo is on the beautiful, peaceful Fort Morgan peninsula of the Alabama Gulf Coast and just 12 miles from Gulf Shores.This non-smoking unit has a queen bed and a queen sleeper sofa and was recently upgraded. You'll enjoy great views from the window, patio door, and deck of this second floor unit located in the Gulf Shores Planation Resort. Our sun suite overlooks a swimming pool and gardens and out to the beach.

Within The Plantation you can enjoy all the amenities, including 6 outdoor pools, multiple hot tubs (indoor & outdoor), a sauna, exercise room, tennis courts, horseshoes, lighted basketball court, putting green, volleyball courts, shuffleboard, multiple BBQ grill areas, picnic tables, and picturesque boardwalks to the white-sand beaches.

You can grab a Starbucks coffee or a pina colada and a sandwich at the cafe next to the beach. On the beach you can parasail, jet ski, go tubing, kayaking, fish, and more. Outside of the complex, you can enjoy wildlife preserves, biking & hiking trails, zip lines, historic forts, amusement parks, shopping, and much more.

The sunsets will change your life. Just down the road you'll find everything from live entertainment, to casual or fine dining looking out at the Gulf. You can also make your own home-cooked meal in the kitchen after picking up what you need from the nearby market.

If you need to get away but you're on a budget, this is the perfect place to enjoy an affordable yet luxurious vacation.

About Domingo & Marsha Gallardo

For the last 25 years we have vacationed on the Gulf Coast regularly and we are thrilled to now have a home away from home there. Nothing relaxes us more than sitting in the sand and watching the waves lap up on the shore. Our hope is that you, too, will experience a break from your busy life and be rejuvenated.

Domingo & Marsha Gallardo purchased this condo in 2015

Why Domingo & Marsha Gallardo chose Alabama

Fort Morgan is also less congested than Gulf Shores. You can go out for a morning walk and experience just the sun, sea, and your own footprints. The sand is amazingly soft and bright white. The water temperature in the summer is warm and the waves are gentle and safe enough for little ones. Located right next to Kiva Dunes Gulf course. You will drive into a gated complex that is guarded 24 hours.

What makes this condo unique

For less than you would spend at most hotels, you will have not only a kitchen but the amenities are so extensive you have to make time for the beach.

Neat and clean private location

  • 4 of 5

Property met the need of my husband and I. Nice distance from town with a beautiful beach! Didn't spend much time in the room as we were exploring! Very neat and clean and tastefully decorated. Owner provided books, movies and board games to entertain. Also provided a wonderful wagon to pull all your stuff onto the beach. In addition had a guest book you could read and get tips on places to visit and where to eat. Overall a great stay just one small issue with bed which seemed to want to sink in the middle with two people. Did not stop us from having fun on a much needed get away. Thank you Marsha for all your thoughtfulness. Will definitely visit again!

Almost perfect

  • 4 of 5

Our kids and grandkids had a house on the beach in Fort Morgan, so this was a perfect base for my wife and me. This is a far better option than a motel. Even though we didn't use it, the pool is right there and the beach is a short walk. Marsha could not have been nicer. Our one minor complaint is that the bed is too soft and collapses toward the middle making it like sleeping in a canoe. A new mattress will make this a compact 5-star bungalow. We will definitely book this again.

It was a great little vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was what we needed...the room was a little tight for a family of 4 but the bed and the sofa couch made it work for all of us. Location was great over looking to the pool.

Time Away

  • 5 of 5

This studio is just right for one or two people. I went down alone to de-stress and found everything I needed for a relaxing stay. Top grade linens, the duvet was especially appreciated, and the place was clean and cozy. Shopping is convenient and the seafood delicious. I even got in a walk on one of the Bon Secour walking trails...lovely. This studio is perfect and I had a very nice time. Slept late, shopped to my heart's content, and laid by the pool every afternoon. Nice people at Gulf Shores Plantation and Marsha could not have been nicer and more attentive; even texted me at one point to make sure everything was going well. Thank you for a lovely time.

Owner's Response: It was a delight to offer our condo to Sandra and we're thrilled she experienced what we do when we are there, a needed reboot. It's so important to get away and not much compares to hours of sitting on the beach and watching the waves. It's healing. We're glad our place makes that an affordable option.
