Dana's 2/2 Perfect Western Sunset Corner ~ Huge Corner Balcony ~ Owner direct!

Space 1,140 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This building is one of the best built on the West Beach.  It was the first direct gulf front building up and running after Hurricane Ivan and the quality of the construction on the outside is also clearly reflected on the inside as well. Stand at the sink and gaze out at the Gulf of Mexico as you prepare dinner. Then, take that dinner out and position the balcony height table just so on the corner of the wrap around balcony and you can appreciate both the Gulf of Mexico and the Little Lagoon while you dine. The views are breathtaking.

The rooms are painted in soft beachy pastels, creating a calm and inviting space. The 2 bedrooms have king-size beds with premium mattresses and a queen sleeper sofa in the living room. The sofa is a lime green cotton canvas that is comfortable and soft. Many friends and relatives have asked for the calming color swatches of these rooms.

The balcony has 2 chaise lounges, a set of Adirondack 3/4 height chairs with a table surface spanning the arms—perfect for wine and cheese at happy hour, and tall table with 4 chairs to enjoy the view while dining. The unit has a well-stocked Cook’s kitchen, a full-sized washer and dryer in a separate room (only the corner units in CS have this feature). That full-sized room comes in handy and the end units not only have the best views, but they are a bit roomier as a result. We also have those curved shower rods so the showers are spacious!

The unit is stocked with DVD's and board games and there is a rocker

recliner, as well. Come stay a while…watch the pelicans plunge like missiles into the sea or the dolphins swim by in smooth rhythm-- it's really

something! Sit back, relax, and enjoy…

About Dana Hammele

We bought this property when it was built in 2004 and when I walked on the balcony with my hard hat on, I started jumping up and down. It is such a view and such a great condo. I put my heart into the decor our place and it's so comfortable, I know you will feel it in each and every room. I am constantly working on the creature comforts. From the stripes in the bathroom to the other items we have throughout that make you realize this truly is a second home...ours and we'd love to have you enjoy it as we have over the years. It looks and lives brand new! (New Carpeting throughout in 2015.)

Why Dana Hammele chose Gulf Shores

Not too big with too many units, and yet has all the amenities of larger behemoth properties. I don't want to be crowded on the beach! This stretch is a little wider, too.

What makes this condo unique


Corner balcony overlooks Gulf of Mexico AND little lagoon. Balcony height bar stools are crucial for seeing over the railings and getting pure views of the gulf. Grilling area (charcoal) on site as well as beach chairs set up for you each day with umbrella (front row!) and beach towels in our condo.

Clean, comfy, and inviting

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Gulf Shores, and this condo was just what we were looking for. Upon entering, you notice how immaculately it is kept. The decor is beachy and inviting, and the view from the living room and master bedroom is stunning. The king beds are comfy and the pull out couch was perfect for the kids. Having a washer/dryer in the condo was extremely useful being on the beach. I can't say enough good things about this Crystal Shores condo. It exceeded all our expectations. Thanks Dana!!

Our first trip to Gulf Shores and we loved it. You book looking at pictures so you never know what it really looks like until you arrive. We were so happy the moment we walked in the door. The condo is perfectly decorated with beach theme from colors of the walls to the furniture. Open kitchen, dining area and living room, 2 large bedrooms and large bathrooms, utility room with washer/dryer and a wonderful corner balcony with direct view of the gulf and looking around corner views of the lagoon. The deck had 2 recliners, table with 4 chairs and Adirondack chairs/table combo which we loved. We sat outside and listened to the waves. We saw dolphins swimming in the morning. The sunsets were beautiful. Bring your flashlight and go out to beach at dark to hunt crabs. It was so much fun. This is such a quiet, laid back area. Views are beautiful and the condo was wonderful. There is a small store across street that has a little bit of everything and down the road a few miles in Orange Beach is a Walmart and Winn Dixie. We cooked all of our meals all week. We never wanted to leave the area. The kitchen has plenty of dishes, pans, silverware. There was a stack of beach towels in the utility room and in the closet were a couple boogie boards and sand bucket/shovel as well as a vacuum cleaner. I brought my own washing soap/fabric softener but there was also some left by prior tenants. Dana was so nice and easy to work with, we had no problems at all. Again highly recommend this condo.

Can't get a better location...right on the beach. We've stayed off the beach before and it's just not the same. We visited with 3 kids (11, 14 and 16). We all loved it. Communication with Dana was great...she always answered any emails quickly. The condo had everything we needed. Definitely recommend!
