              Year Purchased: 2002

              About: The owners of this unit are John and Betty Haedicke and have been coming to Gulf Shores since 1990. They are from Jackson, Michigan and have always found Gulf Shores to be a place where they could spend some time with friends and family. When they announced the building of Island Royale, they just knew it was a place we wanted to be. Not so big that you felt you were in a crowd all the time, and very close to downtown. Their beach neighbors are just like them and they love it as much as they do. Their son enjoyed it so much he even bought the condo just below them!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              The biggest benefit you'll enjoy at this beach home is that there is everything you'll need for a great, worry free, family, beach vacation. You've got the views, the beach, a well-stocked kitchen, bright and cheery decor, three bedrooms (all with their own full bath!), only two blocks from Gulf Shores....and all of this without the crowds at the mega-high rises. What's not to like?
