Discover The Gulf Of Mexico From Your Own Private Balcony!


Welcome to our home-away-from-home at the beautiful Gulf Shores Plantation Resort. The Plantation is a gated, family-oriented, vacation community offering over 2000 feet of private, sugar-white, beach frontage on the Gulf of Mexico, natural sand dunes, and beautiful landscaping. You will be amazed at the activities available for all ages. This resort is perfect for your family getaway. You will want to come back year after year!

The Plantation offers an incredible amount of on-site amenities, and for you golfers, the Plantation is next door to the nationally-ranked Kiva Dunes Golf Course. Perfectly located, the Plantation is minutes away from the restaurants, shopping, and entertainment of Gulf Shores, yet our beach is not crowded or over-developed.

Our privately owned, second-floor, direct gulf front, one-bedroom, one-bath condominium is ready and waiting for you. Our building is parallel to the beach. Our condo is located in the Plantation Palms, the newest building in the Gulf Shores Plantation resort. You are literally steps away from the beautiful sugar-white sand beach.

The living room is newly redecorated with a 43-inch HD flat screen television, smart blu-ray player , queen-size sleeper sofa, an accent chair, and computer desk. The modern kitchen has granite countertops and is fully equipped with all the modern conveniences of home. A toaster, coffee maker, dishes with service for 12, utensils, etc. are also provided. A built-in granite dining table is adjacent to the kitchen for your dining pleasure. The master bedroom has queen-size bed and 32-inch HD flat screen television. The unit comes complete with built-in standard twin size bunk beds. These beds will accommodate adults or children. The large balcony features a table and chairs for outside dining as well as a direct view to the south of the gulf, pools, tennis court, and beautiful landscaped grounds. An added bonus is the washer/dryer off the kitchen for your convenience.

This unit can comfortably accommodate up to six people. We provide six bath towels for your use during your stay (one per person) as well as all bedding. Decorated with a beach theme, your home-away-from-home at the Plantation promises you a wonderful family vacation on the Gulf of Mexico. If this unit is booked we do have two other two bedroom units to offer.

The unit has high speed wireless internet. Feel free to contact us for additional information, availability, or to make your reservation. You'll be glad you did!

We spent 7 days on our vacation in Gulf Shores. It was a great time. Our Condo had a A+ view and it was located right in the middle of the resort. It was clean and comfy. The owners are very nice and pleasent to work with. We would stay here again. I would recomend this condo 100%. Thanks for the memories.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great condo with a perfect view of the ocean, 2 of the many pools and tennis court. Perfect family vacation spot with grills, picnic tables, junior pool, etc. Lots to keep the kids and teenagers entertained without having to leave the complex. The condo provides everything you need. It is very clean and each year (#3) I have stayed there has been some updates. The owners take great pride in providing a secure, welcoming place. My family and I look forward to returning next year.

My husband and I fell in love with this place!! It was very quiet and relaxing!! A nice get away!! We both said after staying here we would never go anywhere else! Don and Gayle are the absolute best to work with! The condo was clean and very well kept! A true home away from home! We loved this place so much I have already asked Gayle if she had a 2 bedroom so we could go back with the family!! Thanks Don and Gayle for EVERYTHING! You guys are awesome and I look forward to talking to you soon about coming back!!

Thanks again

Condo was very outdated.

  • 1 of 5

The condo was stuck in 1985. The bed was the worst bed I think I have ever slept on I felt every spring in it. The pillows were the worst thing I have ever seen ! The walk to the beach was a pretty good hike twice as far as any other condo I have stayed at. All the reastaraunts and places to shop was to far away at 12 miles away.

Owner's Response: We are sorry you felt this way. We were not told of any complaints during your stay and have had no complaints the entire year. Our pictures accurately reflect the appearance of our condo so there should have been no surprises. The Palms Building is the newest building (built in 1998) at the Plantation and has been further updated with granite and track lighting. We also state that the Plantation has several restaurants close by but the majority of restaurants and shopping is 12 miles away so this should not have been a complaint. Our guests typically appreciate our quiet private beach and being away from the crowds.

Great Vacation - Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time on our vacation. The accomodations were just as pictured. Large balcony with a great view. Just steps away from a huge outdoor hot tub, and several pools. Gayle was wonderful to work with. She answered every question I had, and she always answered quickly. I felt very prepared for our very last minute vacation. The condo was very clean and having the washer and dryer in the unit was so helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much, we have decided to rent this unit again, and will be back in June - we CANNOT WAIT.
