About dana hammele

From Kentucky but we get down a lot to use our second home!

dana hammele purchased this condo in 2006

Why dana hammele chose Gulf Shores

Walls of windows everywhere! Overlooking the public beach and the fireworks display each year. Never leave your sofa. This is something! I love that this building is low density. Only 3 units per floor. I don't feel like I'm back in a college dorm. You don't hear anything or anyone, just the waves and the Gulf.

What makes this condo unique

This condo overlooks the island and the main public beach and the Hangout.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Island Tower although, us being a couple of little old ladies, the height took a little getting used to! The views from both balconies and the living room are breathtaking, the beds very comfortable, the decor inviting and the proximity to restaurants and shopping great! We're hoping to make this a regularly occurring "girls trip" (leaving husbands behind even though there was plenty of room for all of us!) so we can let our hair down and reconnect!

So beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every single moment. The condo was gorgeous, it was clean, and the view was amazing! The sunrise was visible from inside the condo as well as on either balcony! I absolutely loved the main balcony. I spent the majority of the afternoons on the balcony until the sun started to set because I didn't want to be in the sun due to family history of melanoma. After the sun started to set, we would take long walks on the beach. This condo was so comfortable....the bed felt like sleeping on a cloud. There is a walk in shower along with a Jacuzzi tub that you have to try at least once! The only thing missing was a hot tub, but then you have a sauna in the gym and both indoor and outdoor pools. What a vacation.
