Gulfside is a low density complex with 250 feet of beachfront, with no high rises on either side so you will have plenty of space on the beach. Located in the heart of Gulf Shores within walking distance to The Hangout, Bahama Bobs, and several other great restaurants, grocery/convenient stores and souvenir shops.

About Diane Honegger

Mike and I (Diane) were married in 1976 and have two children and 5 grandchildren. We have been coming to Gulf Shores for over 30 years. My husband is an attorney in Illinois and I have been one of his paralegals since 1993. He loves horses and is a partner with my sister in a Friesian breeding farm. I am one of 11 children and love coming to the beach. My mom, two sisters and one brother all own condos within walking distance of Gulfside Townhomes. We love to vacation together and at Christmas time we frequently have mom, all eleven of her children with their spouses and many of our grandchildren vacationing here. Our group is growing to around 85 people and we enjoy fishing, volleyball, football, boogie boarding, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, soaking in the hot tubs, bike riding, playing tennis, basketball, playing games, sitting by a campfire at night, singing and roasting marshmallows.

Diane Honegger purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Diane Honegger chose Gulf Shores

We chose Gulf Shores because it has the most beautiful sugar white sand and clear blue water that changes daily from very calm to huge waves. We like that we can drive in one day from Illinois and come down any time of the year to enjoy the beautiful weather. We love that it is safe, family friendly, with a relaxed atmosphere. Gulf Shores has great, reasonably priced restaurants, plenty of shopping, a wonderful recreation center, challenging golf courses, amazing fishing and entertainment for all ages within walking distance or a short drive.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the beach house feel of our townhome. The location is perfect; beach side, within walking distance of the festivals, souvenir shops, restaurants and groceries. We also enjoy the community feel of a small complex with the pool and grassy courtyard in the center of the horseshoe shape. You can watch kids play on the beach, in the pool and in the courtyard from your balcony. Inside, the privacy curtain separates Livingroom, with its comfortable queen sofa/sleeper turning it into a 4th bedroom with its own private balcony.

Beach Views from Every Window, Roomy, Free use of boogie boards and Bikes, Beach and Pool so amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 of us sharing this spacious condo and it did not feel crowded. This townhouse is equipped with everything needed for an excellent vacation on the beach. Each of the 3 bedrooms has it's own bathroom with an extra half bath on the main floor. The hide-a-bed couch is more comfortable than our bed at home and the privacy curtain makes the living room a 4th bedroom. The owner (Diane) has bikes, boogie boards, beach toys, chairs and umbrellas for renters use. The condo is also set up for children and babies. There is a basket of toys under the bed in the second bedroom. The children LOVED finding that surprise. This condo also has a portacrib and highchair. The large well built table easily fit our entire group of 9 for breakfast in the morning and games at night. The proximity to the pool and beach is amazing. The private balcony off the master suite was well used on this trip. My husband enjoyed sitting out there reading after dinner. The ocean view off both balconies are wonderful. We could watch our son-in-law fish in the gulf from the balcony. This vacation was the most relaxed and comfortable we have ever taken in Gulf Shores, AL and we WILL be back. A special thanks to Diane our host for sharing her amazing home away from home.

Great townhouse, great location, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Townhouse is nicely updated and was clean on our arrival. The owner was easy to get in touch with for questions prior to our arrival and checked in with us once we got there to make sure all was in order.

The townhouse has most everything you could need, including a storage unit with supplies for the beach, which made packing much easier. The proximity to the beah was great- made it much easier to get a toddler and baby down to the beach and back as needed. I went down to the beach with our baby several times to watch the sunrise.

Pool area is also nicely maintained.

Thanks for a great stay!

Super Cute Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We couldn’t have asked for a better location!! It’s never been easier to get to and from beach. And an added plus is we didn’t need to bring any extra beach toys or chairs. We literally had all we needed and then some.

Also, owner was readily available with questions and even checked on us the night we checked in to see if we were all settled in. Best experience ever!!! Thanks Diane!

Wonderful time in Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5

Our week vacation in the Gull Shores was very fun and relaxing. Diane was wonderful to work with from the moment we inquired to the end of our stay. We loved being right on the beach, the townhouse provided us with everything we ever needed and the nicely decorated rooms made us feel right at home. We look forward to visiting Gulf Shores again in the near future!
