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!

The condo was great. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay except food.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great, has an amazing view of the ocean (pictures can't do it justice) we had everything we needed for our stay including sand toys, beach chairs and umbrellas. There is a public beach access just to the left of the parking lot so you don't have to drive, just cross the street and there was not a lot traffic. My husband , our two children and myself had a wonderful time and will definitely be going back.

Beautiful view!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was inviting and clean. The large patio with a picture window which stretched the length of the condo really showed off the amazing view from the seventeenth floor. Easy access to the beach and enough beach supplies that we could go right out without hitting the store.

Owner's Response: Thank you for youR gracious review! We strive to make our accommodations pleasing for the entire family and/or for that we'll needed get-away. There are no words to discribe the view from our 30ft balcony - Incredibly Awesome! We also provide all you would need to make the short walk across the street more than worth it! We are the only condo within a mile. Since condos re not allowed on the beach in this area, there is plenty of room on the beach and away from the hussle and bustle. We are very conscience in making our guests enjoy thir stay, so if there is something we could do for your next trip to receive 5 stars, we would appreciate hearing from you. Thank you again for your review. We look forward to having you stay it us for your next vacation. Jo

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time my family has stayed in Jo's condo and like the previous two times we throughly enjoyed it. Being on the 17th floor the view from the balcony is undescribably awesome!! Everything is beautifully decorated and has everything you need to make your vacation great. Our only problem while staying there is, we don't want to leave.

God Bless,

Luveda Baggs
