                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: That's us, enjoying an evening walk on the beach in front of Island Royale. (From right: Sheryl, Brody and Randy) We are very proud to be part of the Gulf Shores family. We would be honored to have you stay in our recently-decorated condo, so that you may also enjoy a wonderful Gulf Coast experience.

                  Why the Owner Chose Island Royale:
                  We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores for 22 years. When an opportunity came up to buy a unit in Island Royale, we were thrilled. The building suits our family perfectly with its location, amenities and nearby attractions.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We love that we can be on the beach or in the pool within a minute. We've travelled to Florida, California and much of North America and we've found that the quality of the sand on Gulf Shores' beaches is the best we have ever experienced.
