See What our guest say!: Our family has been to this area of Florida about 8 times - but this COndo was Fantastic - the resort was wonderful and very relaxing Vacation. The Oyster House restaurant is a MUST (go before 5pm) The owners of this Condo have done a Wonderful job in decorating and furnishing everything you could possibly need as well as calling during our visit to make sure all was well. This resort had something for everyone and WE WILL BE BACK!!! They have activities for all ages - we have a 21 & 15 yr old and they loved it. I loved being a little away from all the traffic & congestion but yet close enough to be anywhere in a few minutes. This Condo is superb and am referring everyone I know to these owners. Thanks - Will see you again.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted you to know that my family truly enjoyed our Gulf Shores vacation J The unit was exactly as it was described in the ad we originally found & it definitely worked out well for us…we especially liked the bunk bed for our daughter! We spent our mornings on the beach and some of our evenings in the pool…what better way to have a vacation!

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your unit.

Take care,

We enjoyed our week and already have a stay booked for September! The condo was great and Dean was easy to work with. This was our first time staying at this condo, but not our first time staying at Gulf Shores Plantation. We loved the new Sassy Bass there at the resort - food was great. We can't wait to go back!

This was the perfect place for a spontaneous getaway for my boyfriend and I. We enjoyed how quiet it was and away from the hustle and bustle of Gulf Shores. We did go into town several evenings for dinner. We recommend parasailing in Orange Beach, The Hangout, Pink Pony Pub, and Sunny Lady Dolphin Tours on Wolf Bay--- saw several dolphins super close to the boat, and it was as cheap as can be! The condo had everything needed from kitchenware to towels to just a perfect view of the beach. We were lazy and did not want to walk across a parking lot to the boardwalk of our condos, so we packed up our car with chairs, coolers, and beach toys and drove from our building across the parking lot (sooo lazy, we know, but it is a vacation). The condo was perfect for the two of us. We made breakfast and lunch daily and drank our coffee on the balcony as we listened to the waves. My boyfriend played golf one day at Kiva Dunes which is a 5 minute walk from the condo. Weather was beautiful the entire time we stayed; no storm clouds in sight. We could not have asked for a better first vacation together, and this was my boyfriend's first time ever going to a beach! We are thankful for this condo and the memories shared. We absolutely plan on coming back!!

The plantation is a great place to vacation! Our family enjoyed the pools, beach and close proximity to town, biking/hiking trails and the fort morgan ferry!

The Gulf Shores area provides endless fun for all. You can...go fishing, charter your own boat or fish off the shore.

Step back in time at the historic Ft. Morgan. Spend the afternoon at the Estuarium (an aquarium) at Dauphin Island Sea Lab. Go horseback riding, para sailing, jet skiing, snorkeling or scuba diving. Take a swamp tour. Visit the zoo. Spend the day at an amusement/water park. Go kayaking. Shop at the outlet mall. Watch a magic show. Take a dolphin watching cruise. Hit 'The Track' for go-carts, bumper boats, and arcade. And of course 'dine til you drop'! There's something for everyone at Gulf Shores. Hope to see you soon.
