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 Gulf Shores

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.

Amazing condo!

  • 5 of 5

My family and another rented this condo for a USSSA tournament our boys played in during July! If coming for ball, the Orange Beach Sports Complex was about 20 mins from this location, and 30 from the Foley fields. This beautiful condo comfortably held 5 adults and 2 boys (10 year olds) for an entire week! It was fully equipped with anything and everything that we needed (almost like I never left home) and in a great location! The beach is walking distance and the front balcony had a perfect view of the beach and pool. And like many others have said, the decor in this condo is absolutely fitting being in GS AL! No complaints at all and will stay here if we return next year!

3rd Time Just as Great!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in this wonderful condo and we couldn't have been more pleased. Everything you could need for your stay is provided, including beach chairs and spices for cooking.

Watching my elderly Dad sitting in the rocking chairs on the balcony each night totally enjoying himself watching the sun go down is a memory I'll cherish forever.

Once again the owners were awesome in every way with communication and follow-up. The condo is beautifully decorated and VERY comfortable. Lots of room for everyone to relax and enjoy themselves.

A true gem and as in the past, when we're planning to be in Gulf Shores, we will always stay in this condo if available.

Thanks Tina!!

Beautiful condo and beaches!

  • 5 of 5

The condo 501 was awesome! My family and I had a great stay- the building was well kept, clean and close to the beach. The inside of the condo was tastefully decorated with plenty of furniture and also plenty of room for our family to stretch out. The only negative things I have to say about the condo is about the lack of water pressure in the showers and the lack of comfort in the bed mattresses. My father-in-law said his side of their bed felt like it was quite worn in and my husband and I's mattress was also not the greatest- our backs actually hurt after a few nights of sleep- those could stand to be replaced soon. The washer and dryer were very convenient and the kitchen had plenty of spices and utensils. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount of things left in the fridge and cupboards from past guests- it was nice to not have to buy EVERYTHING upon our arrival. We definitely made sure to leave some of our condiments as well. We enjoyed the complimentary gift upon check-in and the parking pass. The beach cart in the closet got a lot of use during our stay, as well as the beach toys. We had a great vacation and look forward to our next time in Gulf Shores- things really seem to be developing in the area!

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.

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!!
