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.

Great Place and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect, fully stocked with everything we needed. Also you are right on the beach. The Sea and Suds Restaurant is within walking distance. But most important was being able to communicate with the owner. I highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back!

The accommodations were much larger than I expected!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exceptionally clean and quiet. The kitchen was more than fully stocked with appliances and utensils than any other place we have stayed. Loved the short walk to the beach and having the restaurant right next door. Great view from the deck! We will definitely be staying here again.

Beautifully decorated condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over labor day weekend and the following week with 2 adults and 3 children under 6. It was wonderful!! The view from the balcony was amazing and we watched the sunrise every morning. It was very easy beach access especially with everything we needed down at the beach as a family of 5. We cooked a lot at the condo but a lot of great restaurants were not very far away. The owner was very very nice and easy to get a hold of if I had any questions.

Great property easy to access

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable property well maintained for its age. Weather was an obstacle but did not detract from the location. Highly recommend for the price.

Beautiful but no washer and dryer in the unit.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Gulf Shores!! The owner was very friendly and very quick to respond. The unit is clean, super cute and right on the beach. The only thing that I wasn't aware of is that there is no washer and dryer in the unit, only a laundromat on the bottom floor. To wash and dry a load was four dollars.

Owner's Response: Jenny, Thank you for your feedback. I tried to be very forthcoming in my listing that there is not a washer and dryer in the unit and that the laundry room is on the first floor. I know that would be an inconvenience and extra expense if you have children or if you are there for an extended length of time. I hope the good things about the condo helped make up for the lack of a washer and dryer. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Jancie
