About Dianne Russell

I love the beach and want my guests to enjoy staying in my condo as much as my family and I do. I've tried to make everything comfortable and easy for you to relax and enjoy your vacation.

Dianne Russell purchased this condo in 2000

Why Dianne Russell chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Most of my guests are repeat renters because they love my unit and the small, comfy complex. We only have 18 units, which means the beach or the pool is never crowded and there is plenty of parking. There are 6 restaurants and 5 souvenier shops within walking distance. You can actually park your car and walk everywhere you need to go except the grocery store (and there's a small convenience store across the street). Southern Sands is the beat location in Gulf Shores!

What makes this condo unique

We're close to everything...The Hangout, The Pink Pony Pub, restaurants, shopping, the zoo, and Waterville.

Great location! Cute condo!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was nicely decorated. Kitchen well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed the location.

Great beach area. Walking distance to several restaurants and businesses. The only suggestion is don't plan on any adults sleeping on the pull out sofa. Mattress is very thin, can feel the ribs, needs to be replaced. Planning to visit again next year!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row staying in this condo and it was great once again. All the furniture is comfortable, the bathrooms are nice, and there are plenty of kitchen items for the days we wanted to cook. The pool area is nice and clean and because the whole complex is only three stories it was never too crowded. Would have loved to have a working iron and a few more trash bags and rolls of toilet paper.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience to rent a condo. Owner was pleasant and very responsive, if we had problems or questions , she would resolve it quickly. Condo was very nice, clean, beautifully decorated with fully equipped kitchen. On the beach, had swimming pool, we could walk to many restaurants and shops. Everything was great! Kids had a blast! Would definitely like to return in future! Thank you,Dianne!!!
