About Tina Blanton

We have always loved the water! My husband grew up in Corpus Christi, TX and myself about 2 hours from the Gulf. For years we would discuss - should we buy on the bay or the the beach? Both of our dreams came true at Sanibel. Our front door has the beach and our back door has the lagoon! Perfect!! We hope that you REELAX just as we do when we are here!

Tina Blanton purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tina Blanton chose Gulf Shores

View! View! View! And location between the beach and lagoon doesn't hurt either. Every window has a breathtaking view. No matter where you are sitting, lying down or even cooking, you have a water view that is sure to REELAX you in every way!

What makes this condo unique

1601 has to be one of the most unique condos in the Gulf Shores area that is sure to please all of your vacation needs. Without a doubt it is the breathtaking views in all rooms.

It is having not 1 panoramic balcony but 2, it is having access to the beach and the lagoon in one convenient location

It is being on the 'quiet' end of the island but yet close enough to enjoy restaurants and nightlife!!

It is without a doubt total REELAXation!

A rare option indeed - 2 bodies of water in one location!! Front door, beach and back door, Lagoon.

All this and only 5-10 minutes to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Many memories to be made at reelax!!

Super nice condo with very cute decor and lots of room. 3rd bedroom and bath are super for kids. The beach acess is a step away and makes getting to and from the beach easy. View is 5 star!

August 5th-12th 2017. All I can say is WOW! Tina was absolutely amazing. So sweet and so easy to talk to. She made the whole process to book very simple and stress free. Instructions from her were very detailed and made the visit so much easier. The condo was breathtaking. So clean, appointed with everything we needed and not to mention THE VIEW!!!! You just can't do better than this! This is the only place I will ever stay in Gulf Shores. I can't thank Tina enough for letting us enjoy this beautiful condo. We were so sad to leave but we will definitely be back!!!

We just arrived home. I have gone to Gulf Shores yearly for 5 years, and each year I try to get a new place. This was the Dream place and I wanted everyone to have plenty of room and even their own bathroom. It was decorated and had little extras everywhere. We really felt at home.

I usually get directly on the beach, but being on the 16th floor had the most awesome views, and the walk to the beach was not bad. If I could buy a place.....this would be it!!!! Thanks Tina for checking on us.

  • 5 of 5

Our week long trip was perfect! Tina called to check in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. The condo was very spacious and the views couldn't have been better! Very friendly and safe atmosphere for everyone! On our list for another vacation for sure!! Having a crockpot was perfect for hassle free dinners in and plenty of room to sit together and eat! Best family vacation yet!

Nestled in the quiet part of Gulf Shores is Sanibel Condos. Forget about wrestling for a place on the beach amongst the many high rise buildings. Sanibel is located just 2.5 miles from Hwy. 59 on a small 2 lane road away from all the crowds. Just a hop and skip to the public access beach ramp and you are setting up camp for a day with plenty of room for play and relaxation. In addition to ample beach space you also have access to Little Lagoon located directly behind our building. Little Lagoon offers calm waters for fishing, wade fishing, floating, jet skiing, boating, crabbing and of course, views of unbelievable sunsets.
