About Francie Dunlap

I'm the 'Peachy Beach Girl,' and my husband and I keep two of these little condo units so we can have some fun family vacations with our three daughters and friends. We are a homeschooling family that lives on a farm near Charlotte, NC. We have friends in the building who will be available to help you out if you need it.

Francie Dunlap purchased this studio in 2013

Why Francie Dunlap chose Gulf Shores

I love Gulf Shores!!! I grew up near Chicago, and my family traveled here with our extended family every year for spring break. I can't believe how much it has changed (and for a kid, there is certainly more to do now, haha)! The Pink Pony is still there, and so is Sea N Suds. It's so great to be able to walk across the street to the beach every day, without paying a big price! Great times!

What makes this studio unique

Gulf Shores is so amazing, it makes you feel like all of your troubles have evaporated. It's so laid back, but it can be as exciting as you want, with all of the options for nightlife and activities. I love the location of this condo, because there is so much to do close by. It is nice to have a car with you if you like to explore everything in the area, but you can certainly be happy without one, because the bars, restaurants, and shopping are all nearby. The condo is clean and well-lit, and the exterior of the building has been remodeled (2016).

The Hangout Beach Bar across the street frequently has live bands that can be heard from your room, especially if you open the window. It gives it a fun atmosphere, but if you need it to be quiet in order to go to sleep early, I recommend that you bring earplugs. The music quiets down between 10:00 PM and 12:00 AM

Very clean, cozy, and close to so much stuff!

  • 5 of 5

We were really impressed with the condo. The location was fantastic which allowed us to walk everywhere. For the size of the room, we had everything we needed. It was very clean as well. If it were more than 2 of us, I would've felt cramped, but it was fine for 2. You can hear the neighbors if they were talking loudly and hear the music from the Hangout, but that was expected so it didn't bother us. We really enjoyed ourselves!

Nice and Convenient Stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The location is very convenient - right across the street from the beach as well as restaurants and bars plus easy parking. You are in walking distance of almost anything you need. Owner was very nice and made booking very easy. I would recommend this condo for two people looking for a relaxing/fun trip to the beach!

Clean, very close to beach and the Hangout, which we loved!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our trip! This condo was the perfect size for two people and was stocked with towels, dishes, and beach chairs. Had a wonderful shower! Located on the third floor and neighbors were quiet. We were able to walk to most attractions like a water park and zoo, but did take taxis to go to Orange Beach. The close Dollar General was also a lifesaver! Thanks for a great first experience in the Gulf Shores, we will be back. :)

Great little place super close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We loved not having to drive anywhere. The room was clean. The building was very quiet, maybe there were not many people staying this time of year. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quaint spot to lay your head at night, with lots of great places within walking distance then this is your condo. It was what we expected and wanted for the money we paid. The owner was readily available to answer all questions and made it so easy for us to have a laid back vacation without any hassle. It's right across the street from the hangout and pink pony, which was awesome. Noise was never an issue. Esp considering you are in gulf shores so expect some noise whether it's from the ocean, other families, or live music. Would for sure recommend.
