About Russ and Janet Flanagan

We are a retired couple from the Nashville area. Married over 50 years with 2 children and 5 grandchildren that enjoys spending family time at the beach.

Russ and Janet Flanagan purchased this condo in 2004

Why Russ and Janet Flanagan chose Gulf Shores

Our daughter and son-inlaw introduced us to Gulf Shores Plantation as they purchased here in 2001. We liked the fact that GSP is a family friendly resort with 3/4 of a mile of beach frontage and many more amenities than other resorts offer. Our beach is never over crowded with plenty of room for kids to build sand castles.

What makes this condo unique

Recently updated (winter 2017/2018). Ours is one of the few units with a washer/dryer in the unit, which is great for families who need to do a lot of laundry. We have our own video library with something for all ages - over 40 titles. We have 2 heated pools. One indoors and one outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jul 2013

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

First off, the owners left us a message before we left and told us how to contact them if needed. Check in was very easy- They gave us a key code for the door, and we were in the unit. The condo was very clean and welcoming. It had everything we needed for cooking. Being on ground floor was great- we didn't need to mess with the elevator. Plenty of clean pools, both inside and out.

We had a wonderful stay at your condo. The weather was perfect, the beach was very nice and not too crowed. The indoor pool was great for our 3 boys who weren't done swimming even though they needed a break from the sun. The condo was great and the location is just far enough away to make it quite and private but close enough to make a quick trip to all of the restuarants and shops. We will recommend your place to our family and friends.

Overall the condo was clean, well maintained, with all around great amenities. We were completely satisfied with the condo especially for the price. The beach area was very clean, as well as the pool areas and the property in general.

Spent the month of Feb. Condo was as advertised and Russ and Janet couldn't have been nicer to work with. Though the area is out several miles from the city, it is just perfect for peace and quiet. The complex indoor pool

was just great. We would definitely recommend this condo highly!!

The room was great. Quite, quaint, a close distance to a clean calm beach. Pools were great, AC worked, and the price was good. There was not a crowd at the beach nor was there a party atmosphere. White sand, clear water, and super sunsets.
