Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The reviews are unmatched and check out these VIEWS!!!

***Closer the dates, lower the rates***

This super spacious 2-bdrm, 2.5 bath sleeps 6 total in beds, but max 4 adults (no adults in bunks). 126+ ALL FIVE STAR REVIEWS, unmatched in this area, make sure you read what our guests have to say as the difference is crystal clear!!! See our other properties also! See our photos and glowing guest reviews and you'll see how this condo picked up the nickname 'HOLY GUACAMOLE' from our first Texas guests! When you walk in, the view takes your breath away and strange things will come out of your mouth, then your jaw drops! The photos don't do it justice, and reviews are impossible to argue with.

FAVORITE FEATURE...This newer building was uniquely designed and offers stunning, panoramic views from a 30-FOOT WIDE WALL OF GLASS, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, with an unobstructed view overlooking the Gulf! That main room ALONE is around 600 sq ft ~~ Our huge BALCONY overlooking Gulf will quickly become your favorite hang-out. From the 16th floor, you can see for MILES, with a front-row seat for the daily dolphin and pelican entertainment!

* NEW Sonos Wi-Fi Speaker, stream wirelessly from your personal music library, favorite streaming music services, and over 100,000 internet radio stations from around the world. * SPACIOUS!: 1,236 sq ft - this condo is MUCH larger than most 2 bedrooms!

BONUS LAGOON VIEWS: Eight-mile long Little Lagoon is behind the condo - views from both bedrooms.

The kids will love fending off the pinfish, chasing minnows and hermit crabs, or dropping down a crab basket ~ and the adults love the fishing action and sunsets.

LOCATION: Sanibel complex lies in a low-density, mainly residential area where you won't have to fight for a spot on the beach, but is only 2.5 miles west of Hwy 59 which is the hub of activity and restaurants in Gulf Shores. A 5-minute drive to the Super Walmart on Ft. Morgan Rd at 59 will meet all your shopping needs, including groceries and beach supplies!

About Dana Flynn

call 832.758.2331 for questions! I grew up in the Pensacola area (next town to the east) and adore these beaches and being on the water. There is NO WHERE I would rather be! I learned how to swim here, fished with my dad, lifeguarded local beaches, and just love digging my toes in the sand! I married a New Yorker, and it only took ONE visit to the panhandle beaches for him to fall - hook, line and sinker - for the stunning beaches and the laid-back attitude that goes with it! We visit our condos at least six times a year, and know the area very well.

Dana Flynn purchased this condo in 2007

Why Dana Flynn chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Gulf Shores is is the quintessential beach town - still quaint - yet has everything you need from a beach town for a great vacation! We grew tired of the traffic and hustle and bustle in Destin and other beach areas. Most importantly, we chose Gulf Shores for the sugar white sands, crystal clear water, and plenty to do (or NOT do). The location of this condo just can't be beat: close to everything, but just out of the fray of any traffic.

What makes this condo unique

Fishing in the Pass or in Little Lagoon behind the condo, walking to Bahama Bob's for happy hour or dinner, being able to take a jog down West Beach without fear of being run over! I also love the super fast wi-fi for my laptop on a rainy day. The views of BOTH the Gulf AND Little Lagoon are simply gorgeous!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Copied/pasted from e-mail to owner upon guest booking second stay with us:

"Also, I wanted to let you know that this is the FIRST time that I have rebooked a rental place at the beach. In 10 years of marriage, we have been to the beach almost every year, but this is the first time I rebooked a place we have been to before and I am doing it because of your awesome CUSTOMER SERVICE and the CLEANLINESS of your condo. This second item has never met my standards before UNTIL I stayed at your condo. I am hoping to find it in squeaky clean again!!! ha! :)"

Perfect getaway at the last minute!

  • 5 of 5

Ever have that vacation come together JUST when you need it the most? You're at the cracking point, but you take yourself on a break just in time? That's what this weekend was for us, and Dana's condo was such a scrumptious setting. Absolutely everything was fantastic. Everyone we encountered was so nice, the weather was perfect, and we could feel the stress dropping away moment by moment. Pelicans swooped by as we sat on the balcony, enjoying the view. We watched a group set up for a wedding on the beach, which was fun! The Lagoon Pass was everything you described. Our daughter was enthralled. Egrets walked within 20 feet of us, seagulls left us alone (!), and there were shells all over the place to collect. We will be back, definitely. Thanks again for everything - the bottle of wine was appreciated!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

We went for a family vacation. The condo was great-very clean and a great view. The owner is very helpful and the condo is stocked with things you need to make it easy to cook there and items that make it just a comfortable stay! She gives great information on things to do as well.

Holy Guacamole!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely Sanibel condo in April 2016. It was fantastic! We have stayed at Sanibel several times and this was one of the nicest condos we have stayed in. The views are fantastic. The furnishings are great. The beds are very comfy and they have great linens. I highly recommend this condo to anyone!

Honeymoon Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Had to book the condo last minute for our honeymoon after we had been very indecisive about where we wanted to go! It did not disappoint. Decor was great, views were amazing, felt like a home away from home! The owner was a pleasure to talk to & very helpful. We would definitely book this condo again :)

Beautiful! Clean! Great views! Wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We took our four kids on their first family vacation and this condo did not disappoint. Not only is it beautiful, it is very clean. It has an open floor plan which is great for being together. The view of the ocean is amazing. The furnishings are modern and new. And I cannot say enough about Dana. She was very pleasant to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again, or at any one of her condos.

This was large enough for our family of six (mom, dad and 4 kids ages 1-7). The area had a lot of activities and the beach is beautiful. I highly recommend staying here!

It doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely perfect for anyone who wants the ultimate beach experience. Sanibel has one of the best views with a 30 foot wall of windows facing the ocean. We have stayed with Dana numerous times, and let me tell you, once you stay in one of her units you will be ruined to stay with anyone else. There is a reason why she is the highest rated condo owner in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. Her decorating is unreal. Other property managers and the rental companies do NOT stock or decorate like her. She is one of a kind. She treats every rental she has as if it were her own full time home. She has a unit that will fit any kind of getaway....small family, large group, multiple families. It is well worth seeking out her properties for any vacation in the area. You will not be disappointed! Thanks again Dana for treating us like friends and not just another renter. See you again soon! Heidi and family
