About Dana Hammele

Love to watch the sun rise and set from our huge wrap around balcony! We have been coming here from Illinois since our kids were little. We are now retired and looking to become grandparents. We use our condo a great deal for family and friends, and equip it as such but we do like to share it and rent it out, too.

Dana Hammele purchased this condo in 2012

Why Dana Hammele chose Gulf Shores

We love the amenities in this building. Great on-site fitness center, game room, sauna, hot tub, swim through pool and grilling area. Plus, we can walk many places such as Pier 33, Bahama Bobs and the Hangout!

What makes this condo unique

The floor to ceiling windows in the back bedroom afford sweeping views of the Little Lagoon and ability to view water on all sides. It is incredible!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Sarah, for taking time to write a review on our condo. We are in the perfect spot in the building. High enough but not too high! I hope you enjoyed our new swivel rocker recliners and also our new comfortably outdoor sling chaise loungers -- perfect for naps on the balcony. Again, thanks for taking time to review our condo. Very appreciated. :)

My first beach experience at 47 years of age, came with family and had an amazing experience in this well equipped condo! Very sound proof, had a great time, I was very impressed with the property and how easy the access to the beach was, I've seen others where you have to climb flights of stairs just to get to the sand , for someone with aches and pains Nd hard to get around, it was a breeze with ease!

This property is right on the beach -- walkable to the Hangout, Bahama Bobs, Bills on the Beach and conveniently located across from Pier 33 small grocery store.
