About the property

Condominium - Studio with queen bed & sofa sleeper. 1 full bathroom. (Sleeps 4)

Welcome to our beach escape at the beautiful Gulf Shores Plantation Resort in Fort Morgan, Alabama. The Plantation is a gated, family-oriented vacation destination offering over 2000 feet of private, wide, sugar-white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico, with natural dunes and gorgeous landscaping. In addition, our resort is adjacent to over 1 mile of totally undeveloped beach.

Ideally located, Gulf Shores Plantation is 15-20 minutes away from the restaurants, shopping, and entertainment of Gulf Shores, yet our beach is not crowded or over-developed. A perfect place for an active family vacation or romantic getaway.

You can park right outside the front door of our privately owned, 1st floor studio condo, which is decorated with original artwork, and has a queen sleeping area with an additional sleeper sofa. There's a fully equipped full-size kitchen and a separate bathroom.

Rent directly from us and save 20% over rental management company rates.

The Plantation offers an incredible amount of on-site activities/amenities. We promise you'll have a wonderful vacation at an unbeatable value in our home-away-from-home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bigger than I thought!

The pictures don't show the eating area across from the couch so we were surprised to see how much room there really was in this efficiency condo! My 6'4" husband had no problem sleeping in the queen bed area with me and my 5'6" daughter was quite comfy on the pull-out. It was very nice to have a dishwasher so we leave the dishes and get right out to the beach. We saw three pods of dolphins go by one day and a manta ray came right up in the shallows...my daughter was thrilled! We had quick and professional communication with the owners and they were happy to answer all the fiddly questions I had. I would definitely recommend this unit and these owners for anyone considering a vacation; family, romantic or otherwise!

Studio Room

  • 4 of 5

First of all, the owners were very professional and provided great customer service! The resort was what I had in mind and expected to be for a more secluded typical type beach lodging. The pools were nice and the boardwalk to the beach was good also along with being short distance away for small children to make. Laundry was a hit and miss due to the machines eating quarters to wash and dry clothing. The room had some issues regarding up-keep, but for the price this is what you get for affordability and location. Commute is approaching twenty miles to the hussle-and-bussle of all the attractions though, I enjoyed the drive. Keep in mind that since this is a majority residential area, aggressive drivers become impatient and do not follow speed or safe passing's of vehicles. If I had to rate the resort from 1 to 5 I would do so as follows:

Location: 4

Cleanliness: 3

Beach: 4

Pool: 4

Laundry: 3

Food: 3 (no real affordable items close by unless willing to drive)

I hope this helps and would like to say, that if a family is looking for again an affordable beach vacation, that does not mind some issues to overcome, this is the place for you.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice facilities. Perfect condo for our stay. Had everything we needed. Short walk to the beach and the pool was right outside the door. Clean and cozy!! Kitchen was perfect to cook meals in and save money. Short drive to town with so much to do and see. Great communication with the owners if needed. I would recommend to anyone.

Property grounds were beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and well kept and the description advertised was completely accurate. The grounds of the property were gorgeous. The pool was right outside of the unit which made my stay with children much easier. Beach was beautiful in front of the property and not terribly crowded even at peak time. The location of the condo is secluded and a little off the beaten path which we loved. Owners were very easy to work with and very accommodating. We had a wonderful stay and this unit was perfect for our needs!

Fantastic Getaway for Wife and I

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setup for a getaway for my wife and I. The property is located in a great location within the resort. Quiet area of the resort but close to pools, hot tubs, indoor pool, and a short walk down to the beach. Also, less than 1 mile down the road at the Beach Club, there was an outdoor bar, food and live music every night. We had a great stay and would have no problems renting this unit in the future.

Purposeful

  • 3 of 5

The condo we rented served it's purpose. We needed a place to sleep and shower and that's what we did. The property was nice with 2 pools and lovely landscaping. We had great beach access. The area of the beach was beautiful, safe and secure. We were able to leave our chairs and umbrellas on the beach overnight and no one bothered anything. That was so nice! The room we were in was HOT. The air conditioner was turned all the way down when we arrived and the temp never got below 75. Sometimes during the day it was close to 80. I don't think the unit was working properly. We had to buy a box fan so it would be cool enough to sleep. The carpet needs to be replaced. It felt yucky to walk around with no shoes on. The room served it's purpose though. We slept and showered and truly enjoyed our time on the beach. The beach is why we went. The owner was great with communication. The key and access was easy. You are about 12 miles from Gulf Shores but that didn't bother us because we had such a great peaceful beach. We drove in everyday and ate or shopped. The drive was very easy. Highly recommend dolphin cruise with Coldmill Fleet. It was awesome. Also recommend eating at Tacky Jacks.
