Living in Mobile, AL, we have enjoyed the beautiful waters of the Gulf for over 30 years. For the first time we are now able to enjoy our own 'little piece of Heaven' with our Grandchildren, family and friends. Since our grandchildren live in cold areas of the country - North Dakota and Colorado, we have even celebrated Thanksgiving & Christmas at the beach...A year-round get-away! Now we want to share it with YOU!

Jo Shannon purchased this condo in 2007

We enjoy the quiet area on the west end with access to both the Lagoon and the Beach. No crowded beaches or heavy traffic. In this area, Condos are only allowed on the Lagoon side, so there is no obstructed view from the unit...especially with being on the 17th floor!

The weather is good year round except for a little rain here & there; plus a few chilly one in the winter. October - December, the weather is perfect..... We can leave the sliding glass doors open for a cool breeze & to hear the soothing sound of the waves against the beach. All while enjoying this Spectaular View from the 17th Floor - Inside or Out on the 30ft Balcony!

The condo has 30 feet of Floor to Ceiling, Wall to Wall glass so you can also enjoy that Spectacular View Any Time of the day from the Den, Dining & Kitchen areas!

Girls Weekend Getaway

  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Just like my first stay at Sanibel, the condo was just as it is described in the listing, and the rental process is so easy. Very clean with VERY comfortable beds, and a beautiful view. I recommend the short drive to The Wharf for great food and shopping.

Thanksgiving retreat with the family.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
Everything was just as pictured, no hidden problems or surprises, which we have had in the past in other condos. Beds were awesome, we all sleep very well. More than enough room for 4 adults and a child. Kitchen had everything we needed and more to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner with. The view...man was it beautiful, great sunrises and sunsets, we loved sitting on the balcony all during the day and into the night. We felt at home. Thanks Jo!! We can't wait to come back again and again.

A home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Can I just say that this was the best first experience ever? I don't think any other condo or townhouse will ever compare to our memories of staying in Jo's condo! Actually, I don't think we will find out because we won't stay any where else!

This Sanibel condo was so much more than what we asked for! The kitchen was fully stocked with any thing and everything you could ask for while cooking. Plus, have I mentioned the view? The pictures do not do it justice! Being on the 17th floor lets you see everything that surrounds you, including the beautiful beach that stretches for miles. The balcony had plenty of room for 5-6 people to sit comfortably on and the storage bin for beach toys had kids floats and buggy boards for everyone! My 3 year old son is still asking me when we are going back to the condo! The one feature not many travelers get is the luxury of talking with the owner personally while there!

The condo itself was spacious enough for everyone to move comfortably around in without bumping into anyone, and the beds were more comfortable than our own at home! All in all, this condo is exactly what Jo says it is, "our Little Piece of Heaven"! We can not wait to book our next stay and we look forward to many summers here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the Wonderful & Detailed review!

You seemed to have covered everything a guest would want to know about experiencing a Relaxing Vacation and one that will leave such impressionable lasting memories to look back on. It is a great testimony, which is greatly appreciated, to know we were able to play a significant part of making your First Vacation Get-Away in Gulf Shores such a memorable one!

We strive to accommodate our guests, so they will have a memorable experience staying with us. From your review, it seems as though we were successful in accomplishing!

Of course, the view from the 17th floor is breath-taking & peaceful, which truly makes our guest's stay an extremely Remember able one!

It is our "little piece of Heaven", which we enjoy and are blessed to share with everyone that stays with us.

Thank you again for such a Wonderfully Extensive Review, which I am sure will help prospective guests make their decision to stay with us.

We look forward to having you again soon!

Jo
