If your dates are already booked check out our other one bedroom condo #474950 for availability.

Views, views, views! Our unit has beautiful views in every direction. The sugar white beach with natural sand dunes and sea oats, the sound of the calling sea gulls, all contribute to the appeal of this gulf front unit. Our condo is bright and airy with side windows that allow for great vistas. Drink your coffee on the balcony and hear the sound of the waves and enjoy the sparkling gulf waters.

We have a gated community with 24 hour on-site security. Our third floor, one bedroom, one bath unit is cute, clean, and comfortable. The unit has new furniture throughout and many new appliances. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom with a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. There are two flat screen televisions with cable. Extra cabinets and counters are in the hallway. Washers and dryers are just steps away in the hall. Linens are provided with the unit but bring your own beach towels. Outdoor barbecue grills are available throughout the complex.

WIFI is available in the Starbucks and in the condo. There are six pools with one outdoor heated pool(mid Feb.-spring and Oct.-mid-Dec.) and an indoor heated pool that makes swimming available year-round. Our unit has a view of the one beachside pool from the balcony. Indoor and outdoor spas, lighted tennis courts, putting green, game room, horseshoe pits, a basketball court, and shuffleboard round out a list of activities available at the Plantation. For those who like their food really fresh, fishing off the beach or in Mobile Bay located across from the Plantation’s entrance may provide you with dinner. Depending on the time of year, there are canoes, Parasailing, and beach rentals. World-class Kiva Dunes Golf Course is next door. Kiva Dunes is a nationally ranked golf course.

A short drive provides a variety of seafood and steak restaurants, Tanger Outlet Shopping Mall, Waterville Water Park, Putt Putt, Deep Sea Fishing, and many more golf courses such as Arnold Palmer’s Cotton Creek. As you can see, your stay at the Plantation can be laid back and relaxing or activity filled and energizing. The choice is yours.

Nice stay!

  • 4 of 5

I rented the condo for a weekend in May and had a great time. It was nice to be able to escape my busy schedule. The beach, the pool, tennis courts are a few steps from the condo. This allowed me to take my morning walk without any distraction. it felt like my own private beach.Condo was clean and cozy, I would recommend.

September getaway

  • 4 of 5

September was a perfect time to visit this area as the beach and pools were not crowded and the weather was great. This condo had a very nice view of pool and beach. It was clean and quiet too. We toured Fort Morgan, took a ferry to Dauphin Island, shopped at the outlet mall in Foley and tried some very good restaurants in area. Would definitely stay here again. Nancy was very friendly and made renting the condo an easy experience.

Clean & Quiet

  • 4 of 5

The property is in great condition. I appreciate the guarded security at the front. The pools were all clean and nice. We spent the majority of our time at the smaller outdoor pool to avoid most of the kids. It would be nice if they made this an "adults only" pool. The library at the main building was awesome. We didn't take advantage of the basketball court, tennis court, or other amenities... but they looked fun and nice! The fitness center is lame, and the all-in-one equipment was broken at the time we were there. Great beach access and plenty of outdoor showers to rinse off. They take good care of the outer part of the buildings as well, even with all of the sand that people bring back with them from the beach.

As far as the condo itself, it was nice and clean. Nice to be on the top floor. Good for just a low-key couple. The kitchen was great for cooking, and the beachfront porch was great for sitting. However, the bed and the couch are in bad shape. A new mattress is very much so needed! And the shower doors barely roll to get in/out of the shower. The a/c is really working overtime to struggle to keep the place cool through the day.

We knew that this place was far out from the main strip of restaurants and shops, but I guess we didn't really factor in an 11 mile drive one-way to go out at night. So keep that in mind! The cafe on-site helps, and there is a pizza/grocery/bar place about 1 mile down to the road if you just want to get out of the condo for a bit, without the 11 mile drive to downtown.

Overall, very nice for a quiet getaway for a couple who just wants to relax. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We checked out the couch and mattress and someone took out two bolts in the bed frame. All fixed- thanks for letting us know. Perhaps you weren't aware- there are closer restaurants in the area such as the restaurant at the Kiva Dunes Club House and the Tacky Jacks toward Fort Morgan overlooking Mobile Bay. Go at sunset to see a beautiful view over the bay.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was amazing! The condo was wonderful and check in and out was so simple! The view from the balcony is breathtaking and so relaxing. It is quiet and secluded from town, but close enough to drive each day for adventures or dinner. We highly recommend this condo!

Amazing View

  • 4 of 5

The view is the best you can get. We only encountered one problem during our stay and the condo owner took care of it immediately and made sure we still got value for the money we spent there. I would recommend staying here to couples or parents with a teenager. This unit wouldn't have accommodated our young son if we had taken him with us.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved the location and Gulf Shores Plantation!!! It had a wonderful friendly and family oriented atmosphere. We had everything that we needed inside the condo, and renting from Nancy was a breeze! We went to the beach every day, and even during peak season we were able to walk down the beach just a little bit and basically be off to ourselves. We drove into town everyday, but the drive is not bad at all especially considering that your are getting away from the main strip beach scene. We plan to visit again and we have raved about this area to our family and friends. We also recommend visiting Fort Morgan just down the road and Lambert's is most certainly worth the wait! Eat a roll for us!
