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!

Great place and easy access to beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I have rented a condo online. It was a very easy experience. The condo was comfortable for three people. It only took a short walk on the boardwalk to the beach. Very little foot traffic compared to the main shores of Gulf Shores. I actually found a whole sand dollar. Enjoy your stay!

Nice resort

  • 3 of 5

The condo was what I expected, somewhat outdated. We were comfortable enough, though. And it was a very good price. The size of the condo was great for my husband, myself and our 2 year old. We COULD hear everything from the person above us, so use a sound machine or earplugs if that bothers you when you sleep. The blueray player remote did not work, so we could not use the blue ray player. We did have a great time, the location is great and the resort was wonderful.

Will definitely choose this condo again!

  • 4 of 5

Nice layout. Very spacious for a sun suite. Could use some updating. It is a great condo for the price! Plenty of room for 4 adults. Comfortable sleeper sofa and bed was just right! Stocked kitchen met all of our needs too. Owner was quick to respond and very easy to work with.

Our second visit, much beauty in this area! Great ocean enjoyment and star watching.

  • 4 of 5

Last year my Dad sent me to Gulf Shores Plantation for a few days for my birthday and we loved it. This year I decided to do it again myself and we chose this small studio that was a floor below the much larger apartment where we stayed last year. It was completely adequate with great closeness to the pool, though not the hot tub because the one for this area was broken the whole time, and a quick walk to the ocean.The studio itself is very small but has a full kitchen, bathtub and the sleeping area was great for a couple plus you can also sleep on the couch. The only complaint we had was when we first arrived the studio smelled very strongly of mildew and continued to get the mildew smell whenever we shut it all up to go somewhere. We couldn't notice it after we had the screen door open and were in there for a bit. We enjoyed ourselves staying here for sure and it is so nice to be able to cook your own meals etc too plus such a short walk to the pool.
