About Jancie Snyder
I live in Dallas, Tx and decided to purchase a condo in Gulf Shores as it was one of my daughter's favorite vacation places. it is such a family friendly town and the beaches are so clean and pretty yet close enough to Texas. I want guests to enjoy their stay and would like to hear feedback so I can continue to improve the unit. It would be so nice to have repeat guests. Please check out my cabin in the Smoky Mountains - vrbo #1180014, it is a new listing so there are no reviews yet.
Jancie Snyder purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Jancie Snyder chose Gulf Shores
Because it is on the Beach! When I am there, I leave the curtains open and the blinds up so I can see the beautiful view. Just sitting on the balcony is relaxing.
What makes this Condo unique
Since Island Shores is only a 6th floor building you do not have the over crowding you may have on the beaches near some of the high rise condominiums. Yet, you are in the heart of Gulf Shores and all it has to offer.

Perfect Beach Getaway
I stayed at this property looking for a relaxing weekend and I had a wonderful stay. The location is absolutely perfect - right on the beach! There is a restaurant/bar within walking distance as well as several shops and a New Orleans sno-ball stand. The property and the unit are older construction but very well maintained and very clean. Janice's condo is one of the best appointed ones I have ever visited. There were plenty of towels and rolls of toilet paper in the bathrooms. There were even travel sized toiletries. The kitchen cabinets are very well stocked with everything you need for cooking. Extra thoughtful kitchen touches included dishwasher detergent, trash bags, and even freezer packs for your beach cooler. I found the mattresses, pillows, and the linens to be clean and comfortable. The wi-fi worked properly as did the televisions that I used. I had no problems with climate control either. I used the beach service chair rentals and spent many happy hours relaxing on the beach. I will definitely look to book this unit again when I am in the area. It was a perfect and much needed quiet relaxing get-away for this worn-out mom of three. I was able to relax and recharge in a calm, quiet, clean, and comfortable condo. Thank you, Janice! You were a perfect host!
I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and Thank You for the review and sharing your experience with other guests.
Hope to see you again soon.
Cozy, cute ocean front condo at an affordable price!
We enjoyed our stay at Gulf Shores! This condo was at a great location and with it being a smaller building the beach was not crowded! The unit was so close and convenient to the beach and parking lot, so that was nice! It was clean and fresh upon our arrival! The only downside was that the swimming pool had greenish and not clear water. So we weren't able to enjoy the pool.
Thank you for your review. If I had known about the pool I could have contacted the building maintenance and found out when the problem would be taken care of. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.
Beautiful condo steps away from the beach.
This condo was perfect for our girls’ trip. It was easy to access and literally steps away from the beach. It was within walking distance to Sea and Suds, The Hangout and the Surf Style store and market. We would definitely stay here again.
When we arrived the condo was very clean and welcoming. Great view from deck. Kitchen was stocked very well and beds were comfortable. Will come back!
Our Mother/Daughter Spring Break was amazing!
We were so tickled when we arrived at Island Shores Unit #257! The decor was beachy and so tastefully furnished. Every room was adorable and so clean and fresh. The kitchen was very well stocked and we were so happy to find coffee, tea, condiments and even cooking oil there. The frig was roomy and the ice-maker filled. We loved that we only needed to make one trip up with all of our baggage piled on the provided carts and Chico and Joe were such friendly and helpful building attendants. Chico took us right to the carts and showed us the elevator, laundry room, and how to get out to the beach. We decided to share the King Master bed and it was so comfy! I have to sleep with a fan running and I was happy to find a nice floor fan in the closet. The Twin bedroom had one as well and was newly decorated since the photos were posted and it's really cute. There were 2 full baths so us girls each had our very own which was so nice! There was a flat screen TV in every room and even a Blue Ray DVD player. Our favorite place was sitting out on the deck overlooking the beach with a cold drink and a crossword puzzle. We cooked several meals for ourselves, but across the street is a Pancake House and it's a quick walk to Sea & Suds or my kid's favorite, The Hangout. My super favorite food was the shrimp basket at LuLu's, YUM! Our host, Janice was a joy to work with and replied to my questions almost immediately. It was our first time staying at a VRBO and with the price being the same as a hotel room, we got our own private home to enjoy at a fantastic price! We are already planning our next visit to Gulf Shores....maybe for the Shrimp Festival!
Thank you so much for the glowing review. I’m glad you were pleased and hope you return.
Best beach weekend ever!
The condo was perfect. Perfect location and size. We had the best little vacation that was long over due.
