I was born in Massachusetts and raised in New Hampshire. I graduated from high school when I was 18. After I graduated from high school, being a standard issue boy, I just hung around the homestead, enjoyed my mothers cooking and worked an easy 40 hr. a week job. Life was ideal until one day the blissful foundation of my life was shattered. No, not shattered, vaporized.

My father returned from work one evening and asked me what I planned to do. I wasn’t sure what he meant so he made it very clear. He said, “Whatever your plans are they can’t be carried out in this house.” I was firmly being asked to leave paradise. At that moment I believe I underwent all of the symptoms of shock. If that wasn’t enough three days later I received a letter from a tall, thin, white bearded man in a patriotic top hat and tuxedo stating that he wanted me.

Well that was it. I was out of there for sure. I joined the Navy and ended up in the Sea-Bees. Great outfit by the way. I spent four years in the military and while serving I met my wife of forty-five years.

After being discharged from the service I went to college for a while but I soon discovered that college life wasn’t for me. I was hired by AT&T and worked for them for thirty-one and three quarter years. I am retired now and have rediscovered my blissful foundation. My wife and I have two wonderful daughters who both have great husbands. Two daughters, two husbands equal three grandchildren two boys and one girl. We all live close to Birmingham, Alabama.

People ask me why I didn't return to the North Country. My answer, 'I don't live where water stops moving during the winter months.'

Marty King purchased this condo in 2012

My wife and I purchased this condo for several reasons. One reason is I like the beach, especially the Gulf with its warm water and white sand. There are no rocks or oyster shells to step on and no seaweed to get stuck between your toes. My wife never did like the beach because when she was a little girl her parents took her to the Gulf and rented a motel room X number of miles from the beach. They had to drive to the beach, find a place to park which was usually across the road from the beach. Next they had to dodge the traffic to get to their spot on the sand which was surrounded by bunch of folks. When fun in the sun, surf and sand was over they headed back to the car. Arriving at the car they were wet and covered with sand and salt. Then came the uncomfortable ride back to the motel while shedding sand and salt crystals in the car.

Gulf Shores Plantation is a very well maintained facility inside and out. Upon driving up to the building you pull under a portico to unload your vehicle out from under the sun or heaven forbid any rain that may fall. There are a number of wheeled conveyances for easy transport of your belongings to the room. Two elevators are available and the number of times we have been there I have never had to wait more than thirty seconds for the doors to open.

There isn’t a road to cross to get to the beach only a short stroll across the boardwalk, to keep everyone off of the dunes, and you are on the beach. The beach is private so it is not overcrowded. When the day of fun in the sun, sand and surf is over you again cross the boardwalk to find a shower at the end of it to wash off all of the sand and salt before you return to the unit. The facility is family oriented so you won’t find wild beer parties going on up and down the beach. What more can you ask for? Well let's look at the unique benefits.

Gulf Shores Plantation is twelve miles west of Gulf Shores. That means no bumper to bumper traffic to fight but it is within a few minutes of water parks, restaurants, museums, gift shops and other entertainment in Gulf Shores. Sitting on the 5 by 17 foot balcony on the sixth floor you have an unimpeded view of the beach and you are close enough to hear the waves breaking on the shore. The unit is on the east side of the building so the balcony is bathed in the cool morning sun and shaded in the afternoon while being made more comfortable by the refreshing sea breeze which is almost always present.

There are 6 outdoor pools and one indoor Pool. One of the pools is a large kiddy pool that is one foot deep at the shallow end and about five feet at the deep end. I believe the shallow end takes up more area than the deep end. The indoor pool is heated. Two hot tubs are located on site.

Tennis lovers will find seven lighted courts and one unlit. Seven horse shoe pits, one basketball court, two shuffleboard courts, a Jerry Pate Signature Golf Course and a putting green to satisfy most all sports lovers.

Para sailing is available as well as jet skis to rent. An exercise room is on site to keep you in shape along with a game room to, I guess, keep your reflexes in shape. Charcoal grills and picnic tables are located around the building.

Satellite TV with HBO and Disney is in each unit. Wi-Fi is throughout the building.

If you have to work while on vacation The Plantation offers FAX services and an ATM.

The Connections located at the south end of the building is a wireless hot spot and has an in-obscured view of the beach. Starbucks coffee, pizza, sandwiches, ice cream, iced daiquiris, wine, beer, mixed drinks along with other foods are served there. A gift shop is also located in Connections. Limited grocery items along with ice can also be found in Connections.

Family oriented, a 24 hr. gate guard, security patrols in the parking lot.

PERFECT HONEYMOON!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went on our honeymoon and stayed in this condo and it was absolutely incredible! The owner was so kind and provided us with all the information we needed. The condo had a great view of the ocean and the staff at the plantation were so nice! Our honeymoon couldn't have gone any better!

QUIET & RELAXING

We wanted a quiet getaway away from the hustle and bustle. This was just right. The beach was only steps away! Early morning walks on the beach was a favorite for us. The condo was stocked with all you need. Thanks Marty for being a gracious host.

GREAT TIME WORTH THE 19 HOUR DRIVE ONE WAY

  • 5 of 5
The owner was very prompt, nice and helpful. The property was exactly as described and was very nice for our family of 5. We have gone to Gulf Shores Plantation Resort for 4 years and stayed in different condos. This was very comfortable. We had plenty of room and I felt comfortable with kids (14, 12, 10) walking down to cafe without adults to get a smoothie. The beach is very private and not crowded. The beach view is beautiful and a great side to watch the sun rise. It was great all the way around. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a 2 bedroom condo. We like that it is not on the main drag, it is 12 miles to town, but has restaurants close: Sassy Bass (our favorite easy going, went without kids), Beach club, and Tacky Jacks. Plenty of others in town. We were there to build sand castles and take in the sunshine this year.

LOVELY PLACE TO STAY AND HAVE A GREAT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed at this unit December 21st - December 28th, 2013. The location is great. the property facilities are great. The unit is comfortable, delivered as promised, and sets up well for spending fun time with family. This place is great. I have been coming to the Gulf Shores area for 40 years and have never been disappointed. This location and unit kept that record in place. Marty was professional to deal with. The unit was as promised. It lived up to our expectations and delivered everything we expected. You can't go wrong working with Marty, he is a "pro" who delivers. Thanks for a great Christmas visit with family. Also the golf and drinks at Kiva Dunes were excellent.

GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a blast. I have never been to the beach in October. This was the best time to go. No crowds or traffic. This condo has all the essentials. Everyone from residents to security was helpful and kind. The indoor pool was great for the kids. There was a steam room, sauna and multiple pools. They have basketball and tennis courts. I was a little disappointed that Connections was closed until December, but we made do. It is a great place. The owner was awesome. He was so easy to work with and very kind.

WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in this condo was absolutely perfect! The condo was exactly as the pictures showed. A wonderful location, so close to the beach. Condo was clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed for our trip and we loved the beach toys on the deck for our children. The pay process and check in process was very simple and easy to do. Thanks to the owner for helping make my children's first trip to the ocean a memorable one! We are already planning on returning in the spring.
