Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8). Beach Service Inc.

2018: Beach Service is included -- 2 beach chaises (high-end restoration type hardware + umbrella) set up for you each day included with all our rentals from March-October.

If you want the best, you have found it. Island Tower 2403. The views from our perch on the 24th floor will simply take your breath away. I feel like they should film the next Titanic Movie in my living room because you truly feel like you are on the bow of a ship -- TOP OF THE WORLD.

Email me because I handle 2401 in this building too, and often if this is not open, my sister unit is which is 124077 property id on this site!

Our 3 bedroom/3 bath condo (sleeps 8) and is beautifully situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico and boasts THE absolute BEST views of the Gulf of Mexico plus views of the Mobile Bay, Oyster Bay and Little Lagoon from every window. Small Town, Big Beach, Best views!

Press the elevator button and your toes are in blissful, white, soft, fluffy, fine, quartz sand. Then, when it's time to head up for the night from the surf and sand, you can watch the sun set from one of two balconies with unmatched and unobstructed views of 4 bodies of water. It is just magnificent. Only 4 western corner units boast these unobstructed and sweeping views in our building.

Gulf front pools (both indoor and out), a gulf front fitness center and a private playground for kids in the building, round out the amenities. Our building is low-density as well. Only 3 units per floor.

80% of our renters return -- which says it all. Top-of-the-line furnishings and mattresses also make your stay comfortable. We have our unit packed with things that will save you money while you are here -- from beach chairs, to towels, to spices and cleaners under the sink. We live close-by and use it, so it truly is our second home. Hooks where you need them. Premium linens and towels. Many board games and kids things, too.

This unit was recently professionally photographed for inclusion in a national travel magazine and boasts views that only the west-end penthouse and 3 other units in this building have.

3 bedrooms + a couch that sleeps 2 comfortably. 2 bedrooms have king sized beds, one bedroom has twin beds (room for 1 twin air mattress), and of course, the sofa. The Master Bedroom is directly on the gulf side with a tiled balcony and sliders to the balcony and Gulf. All bedrooms have flatscreen TV's. Palatial master bath with top of the line fixtures, California Closet, soaking tub and separate shower area. Huge Walk in Closets. Separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer. Our condo has a kitchen fully equipped. Balcony furniture is great and comfortable. Filtered Water * Free WIFI *

Find out what many people are just starting to discover -- the aquamarine blue waters along our Gulf of Mexico with a true southern flair. Gulf Shores, Alabama is a delightful affordable 'getaway' into true the true south. Unlike Florida, which is NY in shorts, Alabama offers a relaxed atmosphere, Cajun-Creole cooking and some of the best beaches this country has to offer plus darned nice people, too. It's also delightfully affordable. Short day trips from our beaches include day trips to Fairhope, Alabama -- the Mayberry of the south -- and Mobile, Alabama (a great port city, with much to do). Cruises also leave from Mobile's port weekly.

Come watch the dolphins swim by!

About dana hammele

This is my favorite property that we own. I'd sell the house before our condo in Island Tower. I am blown away by the happiness that I feel each time I set foot in our second home away from home. My husband and I are the first and only owners of this condo. Each morning I awaken to the awesome views of our Island, and our beautiful Gulf, I am happy to be alive.

dana hammele purchased this condo in 2005

Why dana hammele chose Gulf Shores

I wanted this view. Everyone knows a realtor says: Location, Location, Location! This condo has it. Easy to get to and from everything -- walk to the hangout, walk to dinner. Sit on the couch and watch the dolphins swim by.

What makes this condo unique

We stock our place as a second home because it is. We use it and we have our things there (that you can use) -- from the beach towels, and chairs, to spices, great serving pieces, you name it -- we have it in our place.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families of 4 each so this place worked out perfectly for us! It was nice that each of the couples had their own master with attached bathroom and the kids also had their own bathroom. Location couldn't have been any better as we were able to easily walk to the beach, restaurants, and shops. The view was the best part though. It was amazing being up so high and seeing everything. We really appreciated how clean everything was and that the kitchen was FULLY stocked (even with a slow cooker which made dinners even easier). The only downside was that the wi-fi was not very reliable which made it a little hard for some of the group to get some work done while there. Maybe change it to a secure network? We will definitely be back and have already recommended this condo to other people.

Owner's Response: Thank YOU for your kind review of our property. We use this as a second home and use it a lot so we furnish it like a shore beach house. No better place in the world to watch a sunset or a storm roll in. We are looking into the WIFI and I agree with you that sometimes I have great reception and other times, not so good. We are looking to add ROKU to this unit later this year, too. Please note that we do give a nice re-booking discount to folks who return, and I hope you'll stay with us again! Dana

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for our recent family vacation, and it was perfect. It’s on the 24th floor so you get expansive views of the entire area; we loved watching 4th of July fireworks from the balcony. The condo was clean and recently updated. The kitchen was well stocked so we were able to easily cook for a few meals. The outdoor pool is small, but sufficient for our kids to splash around. Last but not least, the owner is fantastic: responsive and hospitable. We will definitely be planning another getaway!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for submitting a review on our condo. I so very much appreciate it. :) We use this condo like our second home, because it is one, and I always look to improve upon this unit through the year. It makes me happy to know that my guests enjoy it as much as we do. I hope you'll come back again and be regular renters! Dana

Best View on the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is just as the pictures show. Everything you could need to cook in or play at the beach is there for you. The owners have put together a book of thing to do and menus for the area. The rooms are large so there was plenty of space (we had twin 6 yr old boys with us). It was nice to stay at a home and Not have to call the owner over things going wrong. There is plenty of seating on the main balcony, which is huge, and the second balcony is the perfect size. The views are stunning. This home is one to return to every year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review of our condo. This truly is our home away from home! We use it, a lot, and each time we are there, I do something to enhance our (and your) stay. Coming next week, a blind for the windows which is fully retractable, and you can't see it when it's up (I don't want to cover those beautiful views), and a new plush rug in the living room. I may eek in a rocker recliner too, not quite sure there. Working on it!

Best condo in the area!

  • 4 of 5

Its hard to imagine anything better. The views, the balconies, the condition of the condo. Everything worked and the stay was great. Only negative would be the heat that comes in through the windows. It was low 90s and the sun really heated the place up. AC had a hard time seeing the place cool. Could use some drapes or blinds.

Owner's Response: Hi Jim, Thanks for your review. Actually our blinds are on order and will be up by the end of June, because I agree with you and especially in the height of summer. I wanted a blind that was seamless and went to the ceiling and did not impede that spectacular view. You were fortunate to see a storm or two roll in. Best place on the beach to see that. Like a ship's bow. Thanks so much for your kind review. This is truly our second home and hope you'll come back and see our new blinds! Dana

Great views!!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here over our Spring Break this year and really enjoyed the condo. We like the spacious layout and of course the great views. For a family with kids, we were a little disappointed with the pool areas, but other than that it was great. We really liked having the beach chairs reserved and we were so blessed with gorgeous weather! Thanks for a great stay!
