About Jo Shannon

Living in Mobile, AL, we have enjoyed the beautiful waters of the Gulf for over 40 years. For the first time we are now able to enjoy our own 'little piece of Heaven' with our Grandchildren, family and friends. Since our grandchildren live in cold areas of the country - North Dakota and Colorado, we have even celebrated Thanksgiving & Christmas at the beach...A year-round get-away! Now we want to share it with YOU!

Jo Shannon purchased this condo in 2007

Why Jo Shannon chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We enjoy the quiet area on the west end with access to both the Lagoon and the Beach. No crowded beaches or heavy traffic. In this area, Condos are only allowed on the Lagoon side, so there is no obstructed view from the unit...especially with being on the 17th floor!

What makes this condo unique

The weather is good year round except for a little rain here & there; plus a few chilly one in the winter. October - December, the weather is perfect..... We can leave the sliding glass doors open for a cool breeze & to hear the soothing sound of the waves against the beach. All while enjoying this Spectaular View from the 17th Floor - Inside or Out on the 30ft Balcony!

The condo has 30 feet of Floor to Ceiling, Wall to Wall glass so you can also enjoy that Spectacular View Any Time of the day from the Den, Dining & Kitchen areas!

We loved this condo!! The view was phenomenal!! The condo was super clean & super nice!! I can't say enough at how beautiful it was!! The owner, Jo, was a pure pleasure to work with!! The condo has plenty of games to play, we loved Uno! The view was by far my favorite! Eating dinner on the balcony was sublime!! I will be booking here again!! You will not be disappointed with this place! It's location is great, close to everything you would need! The beach directly across the street was clean & beautiful! We even saw dolphins playing one morning. Book Jo's place, you will not go wrong!!

Beautiful, homey

  • 5 of 5

This condo has been our peace of paradise for the last three years. Every year we come down it's like coming home. Beautiful, well kept and clean upon arrival. Pool area, and gym are clean and well taken care of. This condo is away from the traffic and hetic part of downtown, but within walking distance to everything. The beach is beautiful, and the owner provides the is of great chairs and toys for the kids. Upon deciding to stay here, you'll be arriving home away from home.
