Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 bedrooms + other (see description), 2 bathrooms, sleeps (4-6)

minimum rental age 25. BUILDING 3 Unit 3222

When I am trying to decide on a place to vacation in an array of so many condos, I always think about what sets a condo apart from the majority. WE have some benefits others do not. We are truly owner operated, therefore prices are lower. Be aware most on VRBO have become companies that charge more. We also did extensive renovation to be able to offer an in unit washer/dryer, most do not have one at this complex. The ad will say washer/dryer, but it is a hall laundry mat. You won't be disappointed in what you see and what you read here. We are honest.

Accommodations: Condo, 2 bedroom (QUEENS), 2 bath, sofa bed . Sleeps 6.

NO PETS, NO SMOKING 3 night minimum 2nd floor unit

Gulf shores plantation is a family focused, gated community directly on sugar white beaches with blue- green ocean waters in Gulf Shores located 10 minutes down Fort Morgan Road (Hwy 180). Quiet and less crowded beaches allow you to relax and relieve stress. Activities are directly on site and include shuffleboard, a basketball court, mini golf, 6 outdoor pools, one indoor pool, 8 tennis courts, fitness center, outdoor and indoor whirlpools, sauna and steam rooms, game room, volleyball, and Café which sells Starbucks coffee. Located directly across the parking lot from the nationally ranked Kiva Dunes Golf Course.

True luxury with eclectic, contemporary styling set our unit apart from others. Listen to the waves and see the beautiful landscaping, beach and Gulf of Mexico from the comfort of your balcony. Our beautiful beach view unit has been totally remodeled and updated with new flooring, cabinets, vanities, doors and furniture. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, cabinets with a pantry, granite countertops and under-mount sink that add a touch of contemporary flare. A combo washer/dryer has been added to the unit for your convenience.

Why Sandy Bocklud chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This property is directly on the beach with more than just the beach. It is a resort. Everything you need directly on site. The kids will have more than enough activities to keep them occupied and the grounds contain a guarded entrance.

What makes this condo unique

Our unit is located across the parking lot from Kiva Dunes golf course. Jet ski, banana boat rides and parasailing rental directly in front of condo

Nice Condo with Great Beach Access, but Some Things to Consider

  • 3 of 5

Stayed for 4 nights in this condo with 3 other adults.

Pros:

- Everything about this condo was spotless and clean.

- Sandy (owner) was very responsive and informative.

- Very short walk to get to the beach access or to any of the pools

- Good supply of kitchen utensils/towels

Cons:

- I am 100% sure that I (like an idiot) forgot a pair of nice sandals at the condo upon our departure. I emailed Sandy to inquire about them and she said that the cleaning person said they didn't find anything. I guess I should be thankful that I didn't forget anything that was of more value. :/

- The hallways to get to the condo were a little dirty and beat up-looking, but I know that the condo owner has little control over that.

- Beds/pillows in both bedrooms were definitely not comfortable. Way too firm for anyone's liking.

This location was great! It was upgraded, decorated nicely and was clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had family staying at a near by resort so we did not get to spend a lot of time enjoying the pools or grounds but the property was very nice. We would definately stay there again. Only recommendation is to get a drain cover for the front barhroom tub.

Beautiful Beach Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience in renting a vacation condo and it will not be our last! The unit was tastefully decorated and spotless. The couch and beds were very comfortable. Extra blankets and pillows were provided. The kitchen was stocked with every gizmo you could want. This unit has a combination washer/dryer HE machine, which took a bit of getting used to. It was easy to operate and worked quite well for us. The owner has installed a keyless lock system, so no key or key card is necessary. We would definitely stay here again!

Lovely Condo and Great Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My party of 6(4 adults, 2 kids) stayed here May 8-11. Upon driving to the guardhouse, the guard wanted to see proof of rental, so make sure you have that. The condo itself is as shown in the pictures: very nicely decorated and clean. The beds were super comfortable, so I slept like a baby. I was not a fan of the HE washer/dryer: it takes rather a long time to finish. As I didn't go on vacation to do laundry, this didn't affect my trip at all.

The distance to the beach is great; it's just a short walk across the parking lot and down the boardwalk. My party and I loved the indoor pool area. We went there literally every day of our stay to enjoy the jacuzzi, pool, steam room, and sauna.

Mind that this condo is situated around 15-20min away from town. It's worth it for the privacy, amenities, and loveliness of the condo, though. We will definitely try to rent this condo again!
