About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8). Beach Service Inc.

2016: Beach Service is included -- 2 beach chaises (high-end restoration type hardware + umbrella) set up for you each day included with all our rentals from March-October.

If you want the best, you have found it. Island Tower 2403. The views from our perch on the 24th floor will simply take your breath away. I feel like they should film the next Titanic Movie in my living room because you truly feel like you are on the bow of a ship -- TOP OF THE WORLD.

Email me because I handle 2401 in this building too, and often if this is not open, my sister unit is which is 124077 property id on this site!

Our 3 bedroom/3 bath condo (sleeps 8) and is beautifully situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico and boasts THE absolute BEST views of the Gulf of Mexico plus views of the Mobile Bay, Oyster Bay and Little Lagoon from every window. Small Town, Big Beach, Best views!

Press the elevator button and your toes are in blissful, white, soft, fluffy, fine, quartz sand. Then, when it's time to head up for the night from the surf and sand, you can watch the sun set from one of two balconies with unmatched and unobstructed views of 4 bodies of water. It is just magnificent. Only 4 western corner units boast these unobstructed and sweeping views in our building.

Gulf front pools (both indoor and out), a gulf front fitness center and a private playground for kids in the building, round out the amenities. Our building is low-density as well. Only 3 units per floor.

80% of our renters return -- which says it all. Top-of-the-line furnishings and mattresses also make your stay comfortable. We have our unit packed with things that will save you money while you are here -- from beach chairs, to towels, to spices and cleaners under the sink. We live close-by and use it, so it truly is our second home. Hooks where you need them. Premium linens and towels. Many board games and kids things, too.

This unit was recently professionally photographed for inclusion in a national travel magazine and boasts views that only the west-end penthouse and 3 other units in this building have.

3 bedrooms + a couch that sleeps 2 comfortably. 2 bedrooms have king sized beds, one bedroom has twin beds (room for 1 twin air mattress), and of course, the sofa. The Master Bedroom is directly on the gulf side with a tiled balcony and sliders to the balcony and Gulf. All bedrooms have flatscreen TV's. Palatial master bath with top of the line fixtures, California Closet, soaking tub and separate shower area. Huge Walk in Closets. Separate laundry room with full sized washer and dryer. Our condo has a kitchen fully equipped. Balcony furniture is great and comfortable. Filtered Water * Free WIFI *

Find out what many people are just starting to discover -- the aquamarine blue waters along our Gulf of Mexico with a true southern flair. Gulf Shores, Alabama is a delightful affordable 'getaway' into true the true south. Unlike Florida, which is NY in shorts, Alabama offers a relaxed atmosphere, Cajun-Creole cooking and some of the best beaches this country has to offer plus darned nice people, too. It's also delightfully affordable. Short day trips from our beaches include day trips to Fairhope, Alabama -- the Mayberry of the south -- and Mobile, Alabama (a great port city, with much to do). Cruises also leave from Mobile's port weekly.


Come watch the dolphins swim by!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: This is my favorite property that we own. I'd sell the house before our condo in Island Tower. I am blown away by the happiness that I feel each time I set foot in our second home away from home. My husband and I are the first and only owners of this condo. Each morning I awaken to the awesome views of our Island, and our beautiful Gulf, I am happy to be alive.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
I wanted this view. Everyone knows a realtor says: Location, Location, Location! This condo has it. Easy to get to and from everything -- walk to the hangout, walk to dinner. Sit on the couch and watch the dolphins swim by.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We stock our place as a second home because it is. We use it and we have our things there (that you can use) -- from the beach towels, and chairs, to spices, great serving pieces, you name it -- we have it in our place.
