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!

That Balcony - A Rainy Week Vacation Saver

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at the condo even with a week of no sun. We were able to enjoy the balcony every day, the sound of the water and the view was cloudy but great. Condo has everything you need. Plenty of carts make getting things to the 17th floor an easy task. We wish we had brought binoculars to better see the dolphins in the water.

In spite of the weather, I am pleased you were still able to Enjoy the Relaxation of our 30ft balcony. Regardless of the weather, the View along with the Calming Sound of the Waves are Incredible! We look forward to your return for a Sunnier time. As a returning guest, you will receive a discounted rate. Thank you again for your Gracious Review in spite of the weather, Jo

Absolutely amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and absolutely loved it! We picked this condo based on reviews and were not disappointed! It is very clean, beds are comfortable, location is great, and the view is amazing! This condo is on the 17th floor and you have a view of the Gulf from the balcony and a view of the lagoon from the front door of the condo. Jo called me the day we got there to welcome us and to let us know that the sleeper sofa bed was not working - which was ok, because we didn't need it for a bed. We will certainly be back and recommend to friends!

Owner's Response: Lori, Thank you for your Wonderful Review! I am so pleased you all had a Memorable Vacation! You are right............the View from our 17th floor balcony is Breathe-Taking and pictures just can't do it justice. I do try to touch base with our guests to make sure they have arrived safely and everything was to their expectations; Plus I want our guests to feel free to call if something should come up during their stay. Thank you again for the Wonderful Review! I look forward to hearing from you for your next Vacation Get-Away! Jo

Very very nice place to stay, can't beat the view

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to this property was a first for us, and we are already hooked and want to return! The home itself is very nice, and well furnished. The beds are very comfortable and on the 17th floor it is very quiet. The beach was very easy to access and very un-crowded. Though on the west end of the "strip", we easily found fresh seafood markets, restaurants, and souvenir shops within 5 minutes. There is visible, and friendly, security on site, and parking was no issue. Elevators are slow, and the one issue with the house was not a big one, with the owner pledging to attend to it directly. In summary, this was a very memorable stay for our family, and when we return, we will try to stay in this very unit, for no other reason than the owners courtesy, the cleanliness, and the exceptional view of the Gulf. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your Extremely Complimentary Review! We strive to make our place as comfortable as possible for the entire family to enjoy! As you indicated, we are within 2-5 miles of fine restaurants, shopping and activities....even only 2 miles from the "Hang-out" where many shows and performance take place. Plus our location is the only condo within a mile, so you are away from the Hustle and Bustle of the traffic with plenty of room on the beach! Thank you again for your Gracious Review. We look forward to having you back on your next Gulf Vacation Get-Away! JO
