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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

We absolutely loved this condo. It is much more beautiful in person than from the beautiful pictures you see online. My husband and I and 4 teenage boys had a blast. It was very comfortable for all of us. Well stocked for your comfort. Dana is a jewel. She made sure everything was perfect for our stay and it was. Private balcony. You can't see OR hear you neighbors. Trust me, we tried to talk to our friends upstairs from the balcony and couldn't hear them. Great view! Great Location! Easy beach acsess. We left our umbrella and chairs on the beach all night. No problem!
The "Hang Out" was great for our kids AND us. We enjoyed renting bikes for a day. Well worth the money. They deliver them right to you and pick them up the next day. Dana gives great recommendations on restraunts and entertainment. Deep sea fishing at Mo's Fishing was great. No need to book a dolphin tour if you go fishing. We saw plenty of dolpin fishing, from the beach and our balcony.
This condo is the way to go. 2 yrs ago we rented a house right across the street for twice the money. We enjoyed the condo much more.

We just returned from our first visit to the Gulf Shores area. I knew a year ago when I looked at Dana's listing on VRBO that it would be a great place. When we walked in it was absolutely perfect. You won't find another view or unit like this. We know, we got the bug to purchase while there and did some looking. Some things look good in pictures but they might smell musty and not be appealing. Not this place. We loved everything about the complex. Be sure to check out the 2nd floor fitness room and dry sauna. My husband had to be pulled off the front deck to go home! The bedrooms are so quiet you can't hear any noise and if you want to sleep in you won't be disturbed by everyone else in the unit! It takes a lot of work and upkeep to have a place this nice. A big thank you to Dana for providing such a great place. Patti and Bill - Franklin, TN

Car: necessary

We are sandwiched between the beach on West Beach and Little Lagoon, which lies behind our unit! West Pass (Lee Callaway Bridge) which connects the lagoon to the Gulf, is about a 3-block walk to the west of our condo. This is a unique area - water views everywhere you turn!

Other Activities: Shelling, bird watching
