Why the Owner Chose Island Sunrise: Island Sunrise is the perfect location. It is directly on the Gulf and in the center of all the activity in Gulf Shores Walking distance to restaraunts, shopping, the State Park Pier and the Hangout - a live music venue where Jimmy Buffet played his Gulf Coast Benefit Concert. (Walking distance is approx. 1/2 mile or less).
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our family, has been coming to Gulf Shores since the early 1990's. It is a very family friendly vacation destination, generally preferring to let other Gulf Coast locations have the college spring break attitude and crowd. Spring Break and Mardi Gras on this part of the coast is a lot of family fun that you can take your kids to and enjoy. Gulf Shores loves children and has lots of attractions for them.
