Clearly the best guest reviews in all of Gulf Shores!
## Please check the CALENDAR button for availability but ask about my others also ###
~~ See our photos and 113 + glowing guest reviews and you'll see how this condo picked up the nickname 'HOLY GUACAMOLE'! When you walk in, the view takes your breath away and strange comments will fly out of your mouth! The photos and reviews are impossible to argue with.
FAVORITE FEATURE...This newer building was uniquely designed and offers stunning, panoramic views from a 30-FOOT WIDE WALL OF GLASS, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, with an unobstructed view overlooking the Gulf! That main room ALONE is around 600 sq ft.
Our huge BALCONY overlooking Gulf will quickly become your favorite hang-out. From the 16th floor, you can see for MILES, with a front-row seat for the daily dolphin and pelican entertainment!
*NEW Sonos Wi-Fi Speaker, stream wirelessly from your personal music library, favorite streaming music services, and over 100,000 internet radio stations from around the world. *
SPACIOUS!: 1,236 sq ft - this condo is MUCH larger than most 2 bedrooms!
~ Sleeping = King ~ Queen ~ one set twin/twin bunks, sleeps six in beds but MAX of 4 adults.
~ 2.5 bathrooms (FIVE bathrooms sinks and THREE toilets TOTAL) - no fighting over the bathroom here!

BONUS: Eight-mile long Little Lagoon is behind the condo - views from both bedrooms. Bring your jet skis and fishing rods and walk three blocks down to West Pass. The kids will love fending off the pinfish, chasing minnows and hermit crabs, or dropping down a crab basket ~ and the adults love the fishing action.

Sanibel complex lies in a low-density, mainly residential area where you won't have to fight for a spot on the beach, but is only 2.5 miles to Highway 59 which is the hub of activity and restaurants of Gulf Shores. A 5-minute drive to the Super Walmart on Ft. Morgan Rd at 59 will meet all your shopping needs, including groceries and beach supplies! Approximately 25 restaurants within a 5-minute drive, plus putt putt golf, the zoo, and Waterville Amusement Park, Movie theatre, etc.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I grew up in the Pensacola area (next town to the east) and adore these beaches and being on the water. There is NO WHERE I would rather be! I learned how to swim here, fished with my dad, lifeguarded local beaches, and just love digging my toes in the sand! I married a New Yorker, and it only took ONE visit to the panhandle beaches for him to fall - hook, line and sinker - for the stunning beaches and the laid-back attitude that goes with it! We visit our condos at least six times a year, and know the area very well.

Why the Owner Chose Sanibel:
Gulf Shores is is the quintessential beach town - still quaint - yet has everything you need from a beach town for a great vacation! We grew tired of the traffic and hustle and bustle in Destin and other beach areas. Most importantly, we chose Gulf Shores for the sugar white sands, crystal clear water, and plenty to do (or NOT do). The location of this condo just can't be beat: close to everything, but just out of the fray of any traffic.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Fishing in the Pass or in Little Lagoon behind the condo, walking to Bahama Bob's for happy hour or dinner, being able to take a jog down West Beach without fear of being run over! I also love the super fast wi-fi for my laptop on a rainy day. The views of BOTH the Gulf AND Little Lagoon are simply gorgeous!
