About Dana Flynn

Co-owned by the Booth and Flynn families, who grew up in Mobile and Pensacola, respectively!

Dana Flynn purchased this condo in 2008

Why Dana Flynn chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Best view around with the 30-foot wide WALL OF GLASS - enough said! Locted on a narrow sliver of land where you don't have to fight for beach space - yet you are back in town with all the stores and restaurants in 3 minutes flat.

What makes this condo unique

Views out both sides of the building - lagoon behind us and Gulf in front of us.

Breath taking

Property is amazing!! The view you see once you open the door is incredible. The pictures do not do it justice. The listing description was very accurate. The unit was very clean and maintained. I can't wait to visit again

Lasting impression, priceless view

  • 5 of 5

Everything described in the advertisement was true. The view from the balcony was stunning and the water of the gulf is clear and warm. When you see the picture of the living room on the website and visit it in person it brings a smile to your face as it is an exact match, and it leaves a lasting impression long after you have returned home.

It is nice to be able to call Dana if you have an issue which we never had but from the time we put down the deposit to the time we left we had many conversations via phone and through email to iron out a few details.

I not only would recommend this to a friend but I have already made recommendations to my brothers and sisters.

If you do come down here and you need a new porpoise in life I highly recommend the dolphin tour. The nice thing is if you forget anything you want to see you can pick up the three ring binder and thumb through to a number of attractions in the area.

Overall this was a priceless vacation! We are planning ahead for next year already.

This property is a must-rent!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, four year old daughter, and I recently returned from our trip to Gulf Shores and LOVED our stay in this condo. Some of the MANY positives of the unit included ...

+ The amazing view -- The pictures on the listing don't do it justice! That wall of windows is spectacular.

+ The decor -- The decor of the condo is luxurious yet casual. It is beautifully decorated but still made us feel at home. Is this vital to an enjoyable trip? No. But it does make a difference!

+ The supplies -- We ended up using hardly any of our stash of toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning products, thanks to what the owners stocked the unit with and previous guests had left behind. I loved that we were able to leave several supplies and non-perishable food items (condiments, bottled waters, ice pops) behind, too, as it meant that we didn't have to lug the stuff home or throw it away AND other guests will now be able to use them.

+ The balcony -- It's huge! Lovely!

+ The beach cart and beach/pool toys -- The beach cart was a must and was greatly appreciated. The toys were a hit with our four year old and we were appreciative about not having to buy anything while we were there.

+ The location -- We loved being just a few minutes away from several restaurants, stores, and groceries, but still having kind of a remote feeling. The views were unobstructed and the beach was nice and open.

+ The guest book -- The unit had a fantastic guest book that looked to have been written in by most, if not all, of the people that have stayed there. It was a great resource for finding favorite restaurants, activities, and outfitters, and it was also just fun to read about the different people that had stayed in the condo and the fun that had been had there!

+ The welcome gift -- We were greeted with a little bucket filled with treats and sunscreen. Such a fun surprise!

All in all, our stay was fabulous. The owners were a dream to work with, both in answering questions before we made our reservation and in being available while we were in Gulf Shores. Booking and payment were seamless and easy. No complaints and we will definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: WOW - and I know you did TONS of research and had lots of questions for us - so I'm glad we delivered above and beyond! Robin & I take pride in what we do and think this is a special place; we love to share it with others and this is the exact experience we hope guests have. See you next time and thanks for reviewing the condo.

Everything we hoped for!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful relaxing getaway with lots to do in the area! Supreme view, easy beach access, great pool on a second level deck, great tips from the property owners along with a book of suggestions inside the condo! It felt just like we were at home. Wish we had stayed longer! Definitely will return! We had everything we needed in the condo also! We did bring a George Foreman grill and made put stop at a SAMs and had great meals the entire stay! Great weather, lots of relaxing time! Highly recommend!

Wonderful Condo!!! - Sanibel 1705

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit for Spring Break to Gulf Shores - Sanibel 1705 was the perfect condo for us. The view was ever bit as beautiful as the pictures show - the kitchen was perfect - we had 4 kids on the trip and they loved their own bathroom, bunk beds, and TV just for them. The beach access was very convenient - the rolling beach cart and cooler were perfect. We couldn't have had a better trip and definitely recommend this condo if you are planning a trip to Gulf Shores.
