This condo has more 5-star guest reviews than any other rental in Gulf Shores, just on a different marketing site -- ask me for the link! **FAVORITE FEATURE? This building was uniquely designed and offers stunning, panoramic views from a 30-FOOT WIDE WALL OF GLASS, floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall, with an unobstructed view overlooking the Gulf! That main room ALONE is around 600 sq ft. We have views out BOTH sides of the condo since we are snuggled between the Gulf and Little Lagoon. You can see for miles. ***We DO accept online payments - but through our professional reservation system, which saves you the service fees!*** **Max 4 adults but sleeps 6 in beds (no adults in bunks). **This 2 bedroom - 2.5 bath is modern but cozy, with classy coastal decor! We are always updating! Recently installed wood-look tile in bedrooms (much cleaner than dirty carpets!) and a new mother-of-pearl penny tile backsplash in kitchen. With 2.5 bathrooms you'll have FIVE bathrooms sinks and THREE toilets TOTAL - no fighting over the bathroom here! See our photos and glowing guest reviews and you'll see how this condo picked up the nickname 'HOLY GUACAMOLE' from our first Texas guests! When you walk in, the view takes your breath away! BALCONY overlooking Gulf is HUGE and will quickly become your favorite hang-out for coffee, happy hour, sunset and the daily dolphin and pelican entertainment! NEW Sonos Wi-Fi Speaker, stream wirelessly from your personal music library, favorite streaming music services, and over 100K internet radio stations from around the world, super fast wi-fi, and all flat-panel TVs including wi-fi TV in living room.

Bring your jet skis and fishing rods and walk three blocks down to West Pass OR to the public dock just 2 minutes out your back door. The kids will love fending off the pinfish, chasing minnows and hermit crabs, or dropping down a crab basket ~ and the adults love the fishing action and sunsets. LOCATION: Sanibel complex lies in a low-density, mainly residential area where you won't have to fight for a spot on the beach, but is only 2.5 miles west of Hwy 59 which is the hub of activity and restaurants in Gulf Shores. A 5-minute drive to the Super Walmart on Ft. Morgan Rd at 59 will meet all your shopping needs, including groceries and beach supplies! Approximately 25 restaurants within a 5-minute drive, plus putt putt golf, the zoo, and Waterville Amusement Park, Movie theatre, etc. BEACH ACCESS/boardwalk is directly across the street, a few houses to left.

Interaction with guests
I personally own and manage my 8 vacation homes (7 are beach, 6 in GS/OB and one in Destin, last one in Scottsdale AZ). You'll notice many reviews call me by name, showing my personal involvement. I'm here to help you in any way, provide you with local info such as restaurants and activities, and answer all your questions/phone calls personally. I have a fantastic and reliable cleaning crew, and a handyman just minutes from all my places to help you with anything that requires 'hands-on' attention.

About the neighbourhood
Laid back beach town: small and cozy - but large enough to have everything you need! Tasty restaurants, good shopping, tons of souvenir shops, and two grocery stores within a 5-minute drive including Super Wal-mart.
Getting around
2.5 miles from the Hang Out, close to everything but out of the crowds and you'll never fight for space on the beach.
