Great Spring Break!
Great Spring Break!
Wonderful stay! Beautifully decorated - 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths! Two teenage grandchildren gave it 5 stars! Three TVs made everyone happy! Fully equipped kitchen with modern appliances. Fantastic beach right outside. Terrific bargain. Very clean and convenient to all tourist attractions. We would definitely visit this place again!

Our family, 2 adults & 2 teenagers, spent a week at this condo. It's a great spot with a nice big balcony facing the beach. It was great to have the 2 bathrooms & 2 bedrooms (one of which has twin beds which our kids appreciated). The condo is nicely decorated and really well stocked with all the esentials. We really appreciated the fact that there were beach chairs we could borrow. Really the only thing missing was a hairdryer. The building has a nice indoor/outdoor pool and 2 great hot tubs. Dealing with the owner was super smooth & a real pleasure.

Owner response: Thanks for the feedback. I will be sure to add a hair dryer to our condo! Glad you had a good stay.
The condo owner is great to rent from and very easy to work with on rental. We have rented from the owner the past 3 years without incident. The entire property is very nice.

We enjoyed our stay very much. It was all that we expected. Enjoyed our time on the beach and the view was great from the balcony. Lots of great places to visit and the fresh seafood was very good. We would definitely book the condo again. Location was good - close to some very good restaurants.

We really enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was very spacious and comfortable. The view was amazing and we had so much fun sitting on the balcony enjoying the sights and sounds as well as spending lots of time down at the beach. It was really nice to be able to just take the elevator down and walk out to the beach. The closet on the balcony held lots of items that the owner allowed us to borrow which kept us from having to bring them from home. There is also a common area by the breezeway that we could take things from to use for the week. If you arrive on Sat. go right down there and see what you can find. The owner was very quick to respond to our questions prior to our stay and was very easy to work with. We would highly recommend eating at Niki's Seafood in OB, taking the Surf's Up Dolphin Cruise, and kayaking at OB Watersports while you are here! Great experiences!

The condo was clean and had necessities until you could get to the store. Lots of near-by attractions and entertainment for the grandchildren. Being right on the beach was very convenient. The boys really enjoyed the go carts. I don't know where the 7th bed was.

We had a wonderful stay at your condo. We would definitly stay again. The condo was clean and spacious. Our girls loved 'their room'. We made ourselves at home and didn't want to go home. A dream vacation. IF i had to choose 1 thing i would change it would be the mattress on the master bedroom. It was a little hard, but i am used to a soft bed. I still would stay again.

My family enjoyed our stay tremendously!!! The condo was great and roomy for our family. The balcony area was the perfect spot to start and end our days. I highly recomend this rental to anyone. The condo was extremely clean and had everything you need for your stay.. The owner was very helpful with all my questions and concerns and was quick with responses. I have a son with special needs and in regards to him the layout was perfect. The balcony railing is at a perfect height so he couldn't lean over and fall. I have already recommended this property to all my family and friends. While we were there we visited Perdido Pass and fished with our sons which was thrilling to watch them catch fish. The looks on their faces were priceless. We enjoyed eating at The Oyster House and Wintzell's. We went deep sea fishing on The Cat out of Sportsman Marina and had a great trip... We will be going back and booking this condo again.....

Family friendly condo

We traveled 16 hours from Michigan to this beautifully decorated condo with our 2 children ages 13 and 12. We were very comfortable in this condo and loved the blue and green colors and family artwork. We had been told the beaches in Gulf Shores were beautiful, but didnt realize how beautiful until we saw them with our own eyes. Our kids had a blast body boarding and playing in the sand. The local restaraunts were very accomodating to families and the food was delicious. We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub everyday on our way back from the beach. Gulf Shores was definately worth the drive! I would definately recommend this condo and Gulf Shores to just about anybody, its nice to visit such wonderful places in our own U.S.A. This was not only a great spring break for our family, but my sister suprised my husband and I with a little beach vow renewal for our 15th Anniversary....This is one vacation that I will always treasure.

About the owner: I co-own the property with my brother-in-law from Atlanta. He is in the IT industry, I own a small business in Birmingham that provides services to non-profit associations. I have 3 young girls and a wife; my brother in law and my family love the beach.
Why the Owner Chose Island Royale:
We love the indoor pool for those in between seasons like March, April, October and November when it may be just a bit too cold to go in an outside pool. Of course December-February the indoor pool is a must. We also love the ability to walk to stores and restaurants. Gulf Shores is also great for biking with many dedicated bike lanes and sidewalks, we find it to be much more bike and pedestrian friendly than any other beach location I can think of. But my favorite thing about Gulf Shores is meeting people from all over the USA: Kansas, Texas, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, and on and on. We love meeting people and talking with them about why they chose Gulf Shores, how the enjoy it, etc.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our property gives you the beach front experience: Sit on the balcony and listen to the waves. That is #1. Open the screen door in the master bedroom and sleep listening to the waves. That is #2, or maybe a tie for #1. We are also one of the rare units that shares our beach gear. We leave the balcony storage open so guests may use our beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and beach toys. This is a big advantage when it comes to packing for the beach. We also stock our unit with playing cards, puzzles and other games and items for those rare rainy days.
