About Dana Flynn, Beach Condos

I was born and raised in Pensacola, next town over and grew up sinking my toes in this sand and lifeguarding these same waters - and now I love to share it with others! This is my third of four condos in the building and as evidenced by all the great reviews, sharing our homes at the beach is my passion. I manage every aspect of the rental myself. I know the area well and we spend at least 10 weeks a year at the beach on break from our Houston (The Woodlands) home.

Dana Flynn, Beach Condos purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dana Flynn, Beach Condos chose Alabama Gulf Coast

unique location sandwiched between lagoon and Gulf with views all around you; NO ONE in town has this 30-foot wide WALL OF GLASS so that even when you're cooking dinner - or enjoying stormy skies, the beach COMES TO YOU through this spectacular, wide view.

What makes this condo unique

VIEWS VIEWS VIEWS plus location (have I said that yet?) - our exceptional customer service, decor that doesn't look like your grandma's attic leftovers! High-end electronics and free wi-fi.

We had an amazing and relaxing vacation in this very up to date condo. The view of the ocean is amazing. The pictures of the condo look just like the real thing. It is very spacious and comfortable. The owner is easy to work with and quick to answer with any questions. We could not have asked for a better place to stay and will be back.

Beautifully relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever condo stay and we were ruined for hotels. The condo was just as described and it felt like you were coming home every evening. The view was breathtaking and the balcony was one of the condo's greatest assets. We will definitely be returning!

Amazing!!! This is the perfect condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautifully decorated and has amazing views! It had all the amenities of home and was spacious enough for 3 adults and 2 teenage boys. We loved getting to watch the dolphins from the balcony in the mornings and the quick walk to the beach (you will need to cross a 2 lane road which was not busy at all and we were there Labor Day weekend). Everything was clean and the beds and couches were so comfy..exactly like the pictures and description. Dana is very friendly and helpful with recommendations and answered all of my emails/phone calls in a timely manner. If you are looking for things to do while you are there I would recommend the Cold Mil Dolphin Cruise, The Zoo ( we did the animal encounters so we got to go in and play with the baby kangaroos and lemurs and much fun!!!!) The tracks is a great place to play put put golf and ride go karts, the pier was fun to walk down and see what all the fishermen are catching ( we saw a guy catch a SHARK!!!). As far as dining options there are TONS!!! Check out the YELP app and Trip Adviser. Our favorites were The Diner (a local fav) and Lulu's... the pamennto burger (meat, bacon, pimento cheese and a fried green tomato!!) is huge and so good and the atmosphere is great! We will stay here again and my kids have already requested that we get the same condo. I would recommend this condo to everyone!!

We are sandwiched between the beach on West Beach and Little Lagoon, which lies behind our unit! West Pass (Lee Callaway Bridge) which connects the lagoon to the Gulf, is about a 3-block walk to the west of our condo. This is a unique area - water views everywhere you turn!

We do NOT force weekly in spring break or summer, but you must align your dates so that there is either NO GAP between you and the next guest - or AT LEAST 3 nights' gap or more. So if there is a 4 or 5 night gap between bookings, you would need to take all 4 or 5 nights. Or if there is a 7-nt gap, you can take the first 3 or 4 nights - or the LAST 3 or 4 nights, but not 3 nights right in the middle. Always leave either NO gap - OR EITHER a 3-nt gap or more. Shoulder seasons are more flexible but check with me first at 832.758.2331 or if you aren't sure about your dates as I have other (identical) condos in this building also.
**HOLIDAY and/or FESTIVAL RATES MAY APPLY and I usually do not allow a check-in OR check-out ON an actual holiday as it makes my calendar difficult to work with.
~ MINIMUM BOOKING AGE = 23, no spring breakers, bachelor parties, etc or all-adult groups unless you are ALL over 23.
~ MAX of 2 parking passes provided and one has been included in your quote.
~ Rates always subject to change until reservation is confirmed; if your booking will leave me with dates/ranges that are hard to book, I may increase your price to compensate for my time and risk incurred.
~ Security deposit MAY be required at my discretion based on perceived risk, in addition to damage insurance.
~ Military discount provided during off and shoulder seasons, with proper military I.D. Discounts may be lower in peak season.
