We have 7 tennis courts, 4 basketball courts and other sports. Next-door is Kiva Dunes Golf Course, rated one of the best public courses in USA.

<> 2 night rentals between existing rentals (gaps) are accepted and discounted. I must personally request payment for a 2 night rental else the website will require a 3 night minimum.

Why Alan Beckham chose Alabama Gulf Coast

This is our second condo purchase at the Gulf Shores Plantation. We love this family oriented resort secluded away from the hustle and bustle of the main 'strip' full of traffic and nightlife. This is the safest place we have found on the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My sister and I just stayed at Mr. Beckham's condo this past weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. view was beautiful, beach was beautiful and it was more than we expected. I recommend it to everyone. I will return hopefully before the end of this year. The condo has everything you need and totally peaceful. if you are looking to relax this is the place to go.

Great Condo, just right for me and my husband.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great "baby moon" at this condo! It is a studio condo and was just right for us! We didn't want anything more! We cooked a few nights and all of the pots and pans that we needed were available to use. Everything was clean and ready for us when we arrived! I really wanted a gulf view and there are beautiful views of the water out of every window. I loved being on the side of the building and having so many windows! It also has a balcony available to sit on. The Plantation is a family friendly atmosphere with so many options. Pools, (indoor and outdoor) tennis courts, shuffle board court, hot tubs, saunas, a small library, a grilling station outside, picnic tables and swings, and a restaurant on the bottom floor that makes their own donuts! I also really liked the security monitoring the vehicles coming in and out and making sure they had a tag- that made me feel safer! It is also right beside the golf course and not far at all from Fort Morgan battle ground that you can tour! There is a dollar general and convenience store not far from the condo towards Gulf Shores. There is also a great fresh seafood market that we got our shrimp from beside the dollar general. GREAT STAY, GREAT LOCATION, would stay again!

Great view!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights as a mini spring break. We loved the Plantation. Everything was exactly how it was listed. The view was breath taking. The room was very clean and had everything we needed. The room is on the 8th floor Gulf front. The only down side I could say was there is only 1 set of elevators and they're on the opposite end. So, be prepared for a long walk. Other than that, everything was perfect. We will be back!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Start to love Gulf Shores more than other beach places due to its quietness and relaxation. This unit has a really amazing sea view and is well decorated by the owner. I strongly recommend this unit to people who are beach lovers and about to spend good family time with their partner. The only tip I want to mention is that There is about 15 minutes drive from grocery stores, so be prepared with your food if you want to cook by yourself.

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a last minute change of plans due to hurricane Matthew, and this place ended up being the perfect place for us. It is perfect for a couple. Beautiful views, and perfect weather! We really enjoyed being away from the hustle and bustle, but we did enjoy going into town for a dolphin cruise and the shrimp festival.
