Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This building is one of the best built on the West Beach.  It was the first direct gulf front building up and running after Hurricane Ivan and the quality of the construction on the outside is also clearly reflected on the inside as well. Stand at the sink and gaze out at the Gulf of Mexico as you prepare dinner. Then, take that dinner out and position the balcony height table just so on the corner of the wrap around balcony and you can appreciate both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon while you dine. The views are breathtaking.

The rooms are painted in soft beachy pastels, creating a calm and inviting space. The 2 bedrooms have king-size beds with premium mattresses and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The sofa is a lime green cotton canvas that is comfortable and soft. Many friends and relatives have asked for the calming color swatches of these rooms.

The balcony has 2 chaise lounges, a set of Adirondack 3/4 height chairs with a table surface spanning the arms—perfect for wine and cheese at happy hour, and tall table with 4 chairs to enjoy the view while dining. The unit has a well-stocked Cook’s kitchen, a full-sized washer and dryer in a separate room (only the corner units in CS have this feature). That full-sized room comes in handy and the end units not only have the best views, but they are a bit roomier as a result. We also have those curved shower rods so the showers are spacious!

The unit is stocked with DVD's and board games and there is a rocker

recliner, as well. Come stay a while…watch the pelicans plunge like missiles into the sea or the dolphins swim by in smooth rhythm-- it's really

something! Sit back, relax, and enjoy…

About Dana Hammele

We bought this property when it was built in 2004 and when I walked on the balcony with my hard hat on, I started jumping up and down. It is such a view and such a great condo. I put my heart into the decor our place and it's so comfortable, I know you will feel it in each and every room. I am constantly working on the creature comforts. From the stripes in the bathroom to the other items we have throughout that make you realize this truly is a second home...ours and we'd love to have you enjoy it as we have over the years. It looks and lives brand new! (New Carpeting throughout in 2015.)

Why Dana Hammele chose Alabama Gulf Coast

Not too big with too many units, and yet has all the amenities of larger behemoth properties. I don't want to be crowded on the beach! This stretch is a little wider, too.

What makes this condo unique

BEACH SERVICE IS INCLUDED WITH OUR RENTAL 3/1-10/31.

Corner balcony overlooks Gulf of Mexico AND little lagoon. Balcony height bar stools are crucial for seeing over the railings and getting pure views of the gulf. Grilling area (charcoal) on site as well as beach chairs set up for you each day with umbrella (front row!) and beach towels in our condo.

Love Love Love

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Gulf Shores and we loved it. You book looking at pictures so you never know what it really looks like until you arrive. We were so happy the moment we walked in the door. The condo is perfectly decorated with beach theme from colors of the walls to the furniture. Open kitchen, dining area and living room, 2 large bedrooms and large bathrooms, utility room with washer/dryer and a wonderful corner balcony with direct view of the gulf and looking around corner views of the lagoon. The deck had 2 recliners, table with 4 chairs and Adirondack chairs/table combo which we loved. We sat outside and listened to the waves. We saw dolphins swimming in the morning. The sunsets were beautiful. Bring your flashlight and go out to beach at dark to hunt crabs. It was so much fun. This is such a quiet, laid back area. Views are beautiful and the condo was wonderful. There is a small store across street that has a little bit of everything and down the road a few miles in Orange Beach is a Walmart and Winn Dixie. We cooked all of our meals all week. We never wanted to leave the area. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, pans, silverware. There was a stack of beach towels in the utility room and in the closet were a couple boogie boards and sand bucket/shovel as well as a vacuum cleaner. I brought my own washing soap/fabric softener but there was also some left by prior tenants. Dana was so nice and easy to work with, we had no problems at all. Again highly recommend this condo.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Can't get a better location...right on the beach. We've stayed off the beach before and it's just not the same. We visited with 3 kids (11, 14 and 16). We all loved it. Communication with Dana was great...she always answered any emails quickly. The condo had everything we needed. Definitely recommend!

EASY AND AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

LOVED IT! We (2 Adults) stayed at this condo late April (no crowds!!), 2015. It was RIGHT on the beach and everything about it was just as described. Safe, with a security guard in the parking lot, VERY clean newer building, and tastefully decorated unit with fully stocked kitched and yes, bathroom has hair dryer :) The master has doors to balcony overlooking ocean, (my boyfriends favorite feature!) and balcony also wrapped to the west of unit for nice sunset views. It is walking distance to The Hangout and Bahama Bobs and grocery/convenience store was very close. The owner was a delight to work with and the process was so simple. We look forward to booking same unit again with the kids!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our spring break at this condo for the first time this year. The owner was very personable, organized, and good with communication. The condo was everything that was promised. It was clean, furnished well, and the view from the balcony was just beautiful. It was a very nice place for us to be as a family with children ranging from 6 to 14 yrs; lots of families around us and no rowdiness. Our kids also enjoyed the pool and hot tub. We had fun trying a few of the nearby eateries including Flip Flop cafe, The Hang Out, and Bahama Bobs. The grocery store across the street was convenient. All resort staff were friendly and available. The exercise room was well supplied and modern in style, overlooking the beach.

My favorite 2 BR condo at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Gulf Shores for over 30 years and had always used one of the big rental companies for our condos. Five years ago we found Dana's property on VRBO and we haven't looked back. Dana's properties are lovely and comfortable, with more amenities than any place we've ever stayed. Working with her is very personal and pleasant, and she goes out of her way to accommodate her clients. She considers every detail, including leaving many supplies in the condo for her clients' use. This year she added the luxury of having beach chairs and umbrella reserved for her renters.

This particular condo is in a great location on West Beach - an easy walk to restaurants and across the street from a little store. The condo has a great wraparound porch with fantastic views of the Gulf and of the lagoon. Truly a sweet spot!
