Overview

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!

Beautiful and most relaxing accommodation !

  • 5 of 5

Zero complaints here only complements and happy vacationers here. The web sight had great picture and after arriving to our room and touring the plantation I knew this would be the best vacation ever and it was. Our room was nice and clean and had the best air condition! Had every amenity you would need. The only thing I found wrong was that I wished I didn't have to leave. My husband and myself have already started talking about returning next year. We found this place to be very family friendly and honeymooners romantic. We loved the beach and how no on bother our chairs and unbrellas when we left them when we went back to our condos. The manager Steve was very professional and forthcoming with all questions and information on check in and check out. Thank you for the time of our life.

Great unit for me, my daughter and her two small children. We were very close to the pool and the ocean also. Clean and quiet. 😊?

The sofa/bed was not a good sleep but the window bed was wonderful. We took turns with the sofa/ bed. I accidently broke one of the mugs by sitting it on the table and it had a fold out that was slanted. So sorry about that... however, the kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of nice towels. Loved the restaurant that was on site!! We never had to even drive into gulf shores and that was awesome !! Will definitely stay there again!!

The condo was not very clean, I saw several bugs. There was no blanket for the pull out bed and it smelled musty in the room. The overall property and location was very nice.

Owner's Response: We had our cleaning service perform a deep clean of the condo. They will also supply a blanket for the sofa sleeper.
