Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This is the 7th year of sharing our 2 bedroom condo with you! This year we have a wider balcony! Due to some siding and construction updates to our complex, the we were able to widen our patio area! It is a first floor condo so stairs or elevator are not needed. Pull right up to the condo and place suitcases over the railings of the balcony. We are located in Plantation West, the diagonal building near the houses. We have a fully furnished kitchen includes, dishes, pots and pans, blender, toaster, coffee maker. Master bedroom has a queen bed. 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and twin bed. Sofa makes into a sleeper. 2 full baths. Ceiling fans in both bedrooms and in the living area. Living area, kitchen and baths are painted a light butter yellow with accents in greens and blues. One bedroom is a relaxing shade of blue and the other a calming green. Just what you need for a tranquil, calm home away from home!

There is NOT a washer/dryer in the condo, but pay washers/dryers are steps away from the unit.

After many years of not having an indoor pool, we recently were able to buy into the brand new pool that the tall building condo owners built. Outdoor pool is about 135 steps from front door. Boardwalk to the beach is about the same distance. Kiva dunes golf course is just yards way. Other outdoor pools and a tennis court are just a short walk across the parking lot. Beaches are beautiful. Let us be a part of your get-away for a relaxing, peaceful time away!

We accept Paypal for an extra 3%.

About The Owner

We're just regular folks that just happen to be at the right place at the right time! I am a retired teacher and he works at the AL DOT. We live in North Alabama with 2 inside cats and 2 outside cats. Owning our condo has been a dream come true for us as we visited the area for about 20 years before purchasing the condo. We just hope your stay is as enjoyable as our visits to the beach have always been.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We started taking our sons down to the Plantation about 22 years ago. They loved it and we loved it. We watched prices slowly crawl up, up, up always looking at real estate books playing the 'what if' game. When the real estate market took it's turn for the worse we thought it might be time to see if our 'what if' game could be a reality. We contacted a realtor and on one of our visits down, he said he had a special property' to show us. We walked into the condo, looked at the view and decided to take a leap of faith. We love our condo and we hope that you love it too.

What makes this condo unique

The best thing about staying at the Plantation is the location. You are out of the 'main drag' but in 20 short minutes you can be back in the middle of things. That's what we have always loved about the condo complex. Being out means there's not a bajillion people on the beach when you want to go play. Plus our boardwalk drops you off at the end of the beach closest to houses. There is room to spread out and enjoy your section of the beach. Taking the 13 mile trip into town gives you many choices to eat in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area. The zoo is very close to our intersection. Kids can enjoy Waterville or the Track. Putt-putt is always popular. And of course there is the shopping at the outlet mall in Foley. It's not a trip to the beach without a trip to Souvenir City or one of the other souvenir shops that are along the main drag. So staying out at our condo at the Plantation gives you the best of both worlds! Come on down!

AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!! AWESOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores in a long time and Connie couldn't have made it any better!!! She was great to work with and answered all my questions immediately. The condo was perfect for the 7 of us - 3 adults and 4 kids. It was great not having to wait on elevators or having to climb any stairs. We were able to park right in front of our room and unload & load right over the patio railing. My 6 year old was very happy to see that we had Netflix for him to watch! The kids really enjoyed the pools, the basketball courts and the beach. I loved the fact that it was not crowded and was very family oriented. We will definitely be back!!

Wonderful Beach Condo!!

  • 3 of 5

My family and I had a fabulous experience staying at the condo! The condo was clean, comfortable and had everything you needed for a relaxing trip. We really enjoyed having all the different pools to choose from and being so close to the beach! Definitely recommend it for families with kiddos as there is so much to do at this complex. We will be back for sure!

Lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our last night at this beautiful vacation spot, and I don't want to leave! The weather has been perfect, and this condo is so lovely! The decor is perfectly beachy, the beds comfortable and the kitchen has anything you need for cooking when you've just spent a great day at the beach. You can relax and read, or go to the beach or pool. The TVs are excellent- and they have Netflix when you want to watch a little TV. There is plenty of room for the family! Perfect place to get away from it all!! I LOVE the 'fish' chair!

Beachside Condo

  • 4 of 5

Very beautiful grounds, close to the beach. Connie was great to work with. Place itself is very tight, especially with overstuffed furniture. Would not recommend for parties larger than 4. No place for food storage in the place! Tons of pots and pans, but no cooking space!

Great Spring Break Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The condo was well stocked (even extra toilet paper, dishwasher detergent etc.) and was just perfect for our get-away. We had 2 adults, 1 teen and 3 children in our party. The pools and beach are absolutely gorgeous. In fact, there are several pools and hot tubs to choose from, plus multiple grills; you don't ever have to feel burdened by a large crowd because the facility is so well-equipped with multiple options. We chose this room because we were looking for great value, a place where we could cook our own meals, get away from the crowds & have a nice, heated indoor pool in case the weather was cool. It met all of those requirements and then some! Connie was very easy to work with and prompt with any questions throughout the whole process. The location of the room was perfect for pools, the beach, and parking. The only thing I would be aware of is that the kitchen and living area are on the small end; for our group, we enjoyed the intimacy it offered and didn't feel hindered in any way. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend to friends.
