FAVORITE FEATURE...This newer building was uniquely designed and offers stunning, panoramic views from a 30-FOOT WIDE WALL OF GLASS, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, with an unobstructed view overlooking the Gulf! That main room ALONE is around 600 sq ft.

Our huge BALCONY overlooking Gulf will quickly become your favorite hang-out. From the 16th floor, you can see for MILES, with a front-row seat for the daily dolphin and pelican entertainment!

SPACIOUS!: 1,236 sq ft - this condo is MUCH larger than most 2 bedrooms!

Guestbook comments from the owner
Copied/pasted from e-mail to owner upon guest booking second stay with us:

"Also, I wanted to let you know that this is the FIRST time that I have rebooked a rental place at the beach. In 10 years of marriage, we have been to the beach almost every year, but this is the first time I rebooked a place we have been to before and I am doing it because of your awesome CUSTOMER SERVICE and the CLEANLINESS of your condo. This second item has never met my standards before UNTIL I stayed at your condo. I am hoping to find it in squeaky clean again!!! ha! :)"

I grew up in the Pensacola area (next town to the east) and adore these beaches and being on the water. There is NO WHERE I would rather be! I learned how to swim here, fished with my dad, lifeguarded local beaches, and just love digging my toes in the sand! I married a New Yorker, and it only took ONE visit to the panhandle beaches for him to fall - hook, line and sinker - for the stunning beaches and the laid-back attitude that goes with it! We visit our condos at least six times a year, and know the area very well.

Dana Flynn purchased this condo in 2007

Gulf Shores is is the quintessential beach town - still quaint - yet has everything you need from a beach town for a great vacation! We grew tired of the traffic and hustle and bustle in Destin and other beach areas. Most importantly, we chose Gulf Shores for the sugar white sands, crystal clear water, and plenty to do (or NOT do). The location of this condo just can't be beat: close to everything, but just out of the fray of any traffic.

Fishing in the Pass or in Little Lagoon behind the condo, walking to Bahama Bob's for happy hour or dinner, being able to take a jog down West Beach without fear of being run over! I also love the super fast wi-fi for my laptop on a rainy day. The views of BOTH the Gulf AND Little Lagoon are simply gorgeous!

PERFECT GETAWAY AT THE LAST MINUTE!

  • 5 of 5
Ever have that vacation come together JUST when you need it the most? You're at the cracking point, but you take yourself on a break just in time? That's what this weekend was for us, and Dana's condo was such a scrumptious setting. Absolutely everything was fantastic. Everyone we encountered was so nice, the weather was perfect, and we could feel the stress dropping away moment by moment. Pelicans swooped by as we sat on the balcony, enjoying the view. We watched a group set up for a wedding on the beach, which was fun! The Lagoon Pass was everything you described. Our daughter was enthralled. Egrets walked within 20 feet of us, seagulls left us alone (!), and there were shells all over the place to collect. We will be back, definitely. Thanks again for everything - the bottle of wine was appreciated!

Wow! We were all shocked to find out that this beautiful condo was even better than it looked in the pictures! It was so clean, roomy, comfortable and decorated perfectly. Dana was very helpful in booking the condo and went above and beyond with helping us plan our activities and suggesting places to eat/visit. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and were so sad to leave. Thank you, Dana, for sharing your wonderful condo with us. It was certainly a trip we'll all remember. - Michelle

LUXURIOUS COMFORT, A HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is exactly as described! This was our first trip to the Gulf Shores area and were thrilled with the location of this condo. It wasn't too far away from all the local shops and sights, but it was far enough away that we enjoyed fairly uncrowded beaches! The lagoon in the back, the Gulf in the front. We couldn't have asked for a better condo. It felt like we were royalty but still had the comforts of home. Immaculate, well stocked and inviting. We will definitely rent from Dana again!

RELAXING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and this was the perfect place to stay. We had the most relaxing, long weekend. The view overlooking the gulf was fabulous and we enjoyed coffee every morning on the patio. Our favorite dinner was from S&S Seafood Market. The freshest seafood made to order. We brought it home and watched the sunset with our favorite bottle of wine. Another night we walked about 2 miles to Bahama Bob's Beach Side Cafe. Enjoyed the atmosphere and loved the fried mushrooms. Thank you Dana for sharing your beautiful home. We look forward to staying again in the future!

DON'T GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT - THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY IN GULF SHORES!

Don't give it a second thought - THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO STAY IN GULF SHORES!
  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our my family's first ever "beach vacation" adventure. Until this trip, we've done Disney, mostly, so we thought we'd try to see how the kids (10 and 7) would like a vacation in which most of the fun is had while playing on the beach. Thanks to our stay in Dana's condo, it was an absolute success.

Everything was excellent. The condo is close enough to town, yet far enough away from the crowds. The elevators were very fast, and there were plenty of luggage carts available at the bottom, always. The condo was exceptionally clean, and the kitchen was well-stocked with necessary pans, etc. The blender? It made daiquiris so well that we bought the same model when we got home.

The balcony views were spectacular. We spent every morning on the balcony, enjoying the sun. The walk to the beach was about 5 minutes, and thanks to the cart and beach chairs available in the condo, we were well prepared.

Showers were nice (lots of hot water and good pressure), beds were soft yet firm enough, and the decor was very tastefully done.

Dana was very accessible and made sure everything was going right during our stay.

We really enjoyed the Pink Pony, which is the kind of place I think of when I hear "beach bar." LuLu's was ok...I thought it was a bit overhyped and overpriced, and to be honest, the food was so-so. Maybe stop there for lunch and go elsewhere for dinner. We made the drive to Pensacola to the Naval Aviation Museum to watch the Blue Angels practice - that was really a great little day trip...and it's free!

Overall, it was a great trip, and the condo and Dana's hospitality had a lot to do with its success. We'd certainly recommend the condo to family, friends...and of course we want to come back!

Owner's Response: WOW, I am so thrilled y'all found your own Disneyland right on the sands of lower Alabama! Sounds like you did it all and enjoyed every moment and I'm so glad we were an integral part of that. I love what I do, especially helping first timers in our area, and sharing our homes. Thanks for the great thoughts and see you next time!

SECOND STAY AND STILL AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time staying here and it was still worth every penny. The weather didn't cooperate but it was still an awesome vacation. Dana is so friendly and helpful that its like we have known her forever. We had a couple rainy days and with 3 young children who have a lot of energy we had to get them out so we went to adventure island. They loved playing the games and picking out prizes with the tickets they won. My husband was excited when Zaxbys said the birthday cake milkshake was on their menu for good, if you never had one you need to try one. We will defiantly stay here again and recommend anyone who wants to stay in Gulf Shores to stay here.
