About Tina Blanton

One look from our Sanibel condo into Gulf of Mexico waters was all it took! We were invited for a family week at the beach, and we fell in love with the whole area. Local restaurant food is crazy yummy ~ and there are so many FUN places to... well, have fun! And then, of course, the fishing was awesome.

Tina Blanton purchased this condo in 2013

Why Tina Blanton chose Alabama

The Sanibel Condo building has some of the most unique condos on the west side of the island; in all of Gulf Shores, actually. It's located just 2 minutes from the restaurants and nightlife but far enough from over crowded beaches and traffic. 'It's 5:01 Somewhere' gives you an above the rooftops view of the entire west end of the island and an arms-wide-open ocean to look at and listen to. Enjoy the fiery sunsets from two amazing panoramic balconies!!

What makes this condo unique

Nestled between 2 bodies of water sits Sanibel Condos with all there is to offer for a memorable beach vacation: spectacular water views, fiery sunsets, clean pretty beaches, fishing, swimming in the (on site) pool or just ...relaxing.

Our family had a wonderful time at Sanibel. The condo was fantastic, photos on website were accurate but did not show how wonderfully furnished it was. Tina was always quick to respond and very helpful.

Perfect Getaway for a Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a girls trip to Gulf Shores and I'm already anticipating the next trip. The condo was fabulous. Everything 8 girls could need was ready and waiting for us. Slept all of us well and the mattresses were fabulous.

Also, easy access to the beach or pool, whatever you were feeling that day. Surrounded by a ton of great restaurants and bars! It's a place I have and will continue suggesting for a family vacation or friends get away. Thanks so much for all your help Tina! It was a blast.

Outstandind Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely impressed with the Condo when we first walked in. The decor was excellent. The condo was well equipped with everything you needed. Even though it wasn't right on the beach, it was close enough and the location was perfect. We have stayed in lots of Condos in Florida, this has been the best one by far.

We enjoyed our stay at the beach condo. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The views from the balconies were fabulous. The weather and the sand was perfect. We plan on returning again.

Car: recommended

The ideal beach location! Far enough away from the overcrowded high rise beaches and close enough to all the restaurants and nightlife! Only 2.5 miles away from Highway 59 sits Sanibel Condos - nestled between 2 bodies of sparkling waters. The white sand beach located in front and the quiet calm waters of Little Lagoon directly behind us. Now you don't have to choose, you can have both!!
