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 Alabama

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!

My husband and I absolutely Love to stay at this gorgeous place! It is always so clean and the view is just breathtaking. The owner is so sweet and personable; she always leaves a sweet note and picture frame when you arrive. We look forward to our next visit and enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony and watch the sunset. :)

My stay with my girlfriends at this gorgeous condo was perfect!! We loved relaxing on the beautiful balcony overlooking the stunning beach to the front and the beautiful bay to the back. The furniture was so comfy and everything we needed in the kitchen was provided. The decor was outstanding!! So many upgrades that made us feel so lucky to have picked the perfect place for our "Girl Time!!!"

Yes you were correct" look at that view!"

  • 5 of 5

We were all blown away with everything that you had in the unit. It was just like being at home if we thought of something you can bet it was in the condo. We had dinner at a restaurant on the beach called Cobalt and it was an outstanding evening. Everything from the food to the ambience and right into the drinks. The only problems we had were with the elevators but even that was minor. My children loved everything about it although they complained about the depth of the pool as they all think they're scuba divers or something. Hope we can find another week with you in the near future. Thanks again Stan

My girlfriends and I have been coming to Gulf Shores, AL for several years now, and always come back to this beautiful condo. This year we were very excited to see all the new improvements that were made to it. The new flooring and wall colors made this condo even more beautiful than it was before. Also, the view from this condo is amazing because you have the awesome beach view, and the lagoon view where you can watch the beautiful sunsets every evening. Can't wait to go back again next year!

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.

View and Location: View the sparkling gulf or a fiery sunset from the 30 ft wrap around unobstructed balcony or relaxing indoors and gazing out the wall of windows. Want a little private time? Your private balcony off the Master Suite provides quiet morning time over looking the glassy waters of Lagoon bay or sunsets in the evening. A rare option indeed - 2 bodies of water in one location!! Front door, beach and back door, Lagoon. The kids will love walking to the channel (that connects Gulf and Lagoon) where they can drop their crab nets, go fishing or searching for hermit crabs at night. All this and only 5-10 minutes to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Many memories to be made at reelax!!
