Why Alan Beckham chose Gulf Shores
While staying in a condominium in Orange Beach my daughter (then 10) was very uncomfortable with the busy highway next to the sidewalk. As she squeezed my hand I knew then this was no place for my family. We were lead to the Gulf Shores Plantation with 19 acres of private manicured landscape. The seclusion of this resort has been the choice location to bless our pastors and other ministers we know. It's also a great place for spiritual retreats and time to refresh.

When we entered the condo for the first time we were in awe of the view.

Our new favorite beach destination
Very helpful owner! Gave great instructions to property and information about surrounding area. Was very clean and well maintained. Beaches felt more private than other locations. Overall loved our stay. 10/10
Great private beach! End unit - very quiet.
Great location and private beach! It’s away from the congestion of the crowded beach but close enough to go into town every night. Condo was clean and has a great view of the Gulf from the balcony. We enjoyed sitting out there in the morning with our coffee. Condo is an end unit and it was very quiet. Our teenagers loved that there were some beach toys in the closet that we used to catch crabs on the beach at night. The captains bunks in the hall were great so our teens didn’t have to share the sofa bed. The only downside is that the outlets need to be replaced. Our charges would fall right out of the outlet (and charged phones are very important to teenagers).
Nice and relaxing
First trip to gulf shores
The room was just the right size. The property was fantastic. It was a long drive to go to shop. But we had a very good trip.
The condo was very clean and very fun! The only thing that I would change is not having toilet paper and garbage bags available (besides the two provided), so you're required to go to a store no matter what for those items. For the price, it would've been nice to have those things included. Overall, it was amazing and I'm looking into planning another stay next summer.
Perfect affordable beach condo for our family of 4!
We stayed in the cute little condo with our 3 and 9 year old girls and loved our stay! Loved the light house theme and the beautiful tile work on the flooring and the view from the balcony was great, our girls ate breakfast on it every morning, except for the one rainy one. It was a short walk to the boardwalk leading to the resorts private beach, which we also loved, because it wasn’t overly crowded. We ate at 2 different restaurants that were on the resort so we didn’t have to take the 15-20 min drive to town, which wasn’t bad at all. We also loved the indoor pool on the rainy day. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wanting to be close to the beach stay in a nice clean resort.
