Alan Beckham purchased this condo in 2002

While staying in a condominium in Orange Beach my daughter (then 10) was very uncomfortable with the busy highway next to the sidewalk. As she squeezed my hand I knew then this was no place for my family. We were lead to the Gulf Shores Plantation with 19 acres of private manicured landscape.

The seclusion of this resort has been the choice location to bless our pastors and other ministers we know. It's also a great place for spiritual retreats and time to refresh.

When we entered the condo for the first time we were in awe of the view.

VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The condo was very clean! We had absolutely no problem checking in when we got there. The grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. It was just a walk across the parking lot to the beautiful beach. The condo contained all things needed to cook and feel like home! The only complaint I have is that the mosquitoes outside the door and at the elevator were horrible! They should be doing regular spraying or put up bug zappers or something to help. Other than that, we loved our stay!

Owner's Response: My apologies for mosquitoes caused by torrential rain flooding. The issue has been taken care of by professionals contracted to maintain resort insect control.
Glad you enjoyed the rest of your stay and hope you return..

WONDERFUL ROOM

  • 4 of 5
The room was wonderful and exactly how it was described and pictured on the ads. The customer service prior to the trip was excellent. The weather was bad during our trip and the beaches were in bad shape due to storms earlier and flooding along with red flags the entire time. Also for our first beach trip my 3 year old son and I both were sick the entire trip so it was wonderful that the room was so nice since we spent almost all the time in the room. Everyone was very nice and the pool was great when we did get to go the few times. We are hoping to book the room again in September to try another trip this year!

JANUARY IN GULF SHORES

  • 5 of 5
The condo was clean, bed was made up on arrival, plenty of towels. What more could you need! Nicely decorated too.
Even tho' the weather was colder than usual, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony daily, protected from the wind. The Gulf view was most appreciated. Saw the Blue Angels fly overhead several times. Free air show!
Lots of activities for anyone to join- tennis, horseshoes, water aerobics. The indoor pool, jacuzzi and hot tub were something we used every evening- clean and well-kept as well. Other guests were friendly and welcoming.
This owner was a pleasure to deal with and I can certainly recommend this condo to anyone who's looking for a relaxing stay in Gulf Shores.
I can only imagine how nice that beach must be in warmer weather. I would love that!

GREAT FAMILY CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this condo and it represents a great value for families. The kids love the hallway bunk beds and we loved the lower price of a 1 bedroom condo. The condo is in a great location that allows for views of the ocean, is nearby the indoor pool and allows us to see activity and availability of the basketball and tennis courts easily. The condo has a nice lighthouse theme and also some subtle reminders of another paradise which is available to us all.
