About Dana Flynn, Beach Condos

I was born and raised in Pensacola, next town over and grew up sinking my toes in this sand and lifeguarding these same waters - and now I love to share it with others! This is my third of four condos in the building and as evidenced by all the great reviews, sharing our homes at the beach is my passion. I manage every aspect of the rental myself. I know the area well and we spend at least 10 weeks a year at the beach on break from our Houston (The Woodlands) home.

Dana Flynn, Beach Condos purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dana Flynn, Beach Condos chose Gulf Shores

unique location sandwiched between lagoon and Gulf with views all around you; NO ONE in town has this 30-foot wide WALL OF GLASS so that even when you're cooking dinner - or enjoying stormy skies, the beach COMES TO YOU through this spectacular, wide view.

What makes this condo unique

VIEW (have I said that yet?) - our exceptional customer service, decor that doesn't look like your grandma's attic leftovers! High-end electronics and free wi-fi.

AWESOME-JUST RENT IT!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and this condo was a perfect place to stay. It was everything advertised. Very clean, great location, great views and it had everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Dana was the best! My favorite part was the great balcony. Loved sitting out there watching the dolphins pass every day! Everything from reserving the condo to check out was easy and quick. I highly recommend this condo and Dana to anyone looking for a great get a way!!!

Wonderful condo! Easy transaction!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this condo over Spring Break 2014. I have rented many properties over the years but this condo was by far the cleanest. The pictures are accurate and the views from the living room/kitchen area were amazing! Dana was easy to work with and this was definitely one of the easiest transitions I have encountered went renting. I highly recommend this property to others.

What a wonderful escape from snowy Michigan. The condo is lovely, well supplied and clean, clean, clean. We loved the gorgeous view and hope to return in another year. Thanks for the great time.

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in Dana's "If Barbie were a Condo" and could not have been happier. It was even more beautiful than the description and photos and Dana was the best! Her recommendations of activities and restaurants were perfect. It would be really hard to find anything better than this, so we won't even try. We will definitely stay here again next vacation!

Wonderfully furnished with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 9 days with two children ages 3 and 1 and we had a BLAST!

Our eyes were fixated on the view out of the wall of glass from the moment we first walked in until we left. The large balcony was a great place to watch the dolphins and listen to the waves. We were able to take a lot of good pictures off the balcony (see my current HomeAway profile pic)

The walk to the beach was not bad at all. We brought a wagon with us which definitely made the 4-5 minute trip much easier. The included rolling beach cart was a big help.

This unit was exceptionally clean and had a nice fresh smell to it which was unexpected for a condo that is so booked up. Furniture, towels, kitchen items, beach items were all there as described - this is a very accurate listing. We enjoyed the large amount of room in the kitchen and living area.

The owner, Dana, is extremely responsive by phone and e-mail and really prides herself on superior customer service. Will definitely book through her again! She provides many good recommendations on things to do and where to eat. Our favorite place to eat was The Compleat Angler at the Wharf in Orange Beach - between great food and a kid's night on Tuesday with activities like hermit crab racing, we were blown away. We also enjoyed the dolphin cruise with the Cold Mil Fleet - they have a really cool routine where they get the dolphins jumping out of the water right next to the boat.

All in all, we LOVED this condo and hated to leave. Even 9 days seemed to short.

Owner's Response: I love sharing our places, and kudos to my crackerjack cleaning team for always going above and beyond! Chris & family, thanks for sharing your kind thoughts and I'm glad we lived up to expectations - especially since we already set the bar high - and see you next time...Dana

Car: necessary
