About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Island Royale is an upscale beachfront condominium that was built in 2002. It is located directly on the beach in the heart of Gulf Shores on West Beach Boulevard. The owners stay in this non-smoking/no pets allowed condo often so you will feel right at home. It has an oversized bubble-shaped balcony, which can be accessed from both the living area and the master bedroom. The condo has a KEYPAD entry so you do not have to keep up with keys.

The balcony has one round table, four chairs, and a lounge chair with a side table. Black-out drapes cover both sets of windows and doors. You can sleep late or open the drapes and watch the sun rise. The condo has almost 1,100 square feet with nine-foot ceilings, seven-foot doors, crown molding, granite countertops in the kitchen, and corian countertops in the bathrooms.

The condo has been completely repainted, and 20-inch porcelain tile has been installed throughout the condo. It looks brand new. This condo is not in front of an elevator so noise is not a problem.

The living area includes a sofa that opens into a queen-sized bed, a chair which matches the sofa, a Lazy Boy recliner, 40-inch flat screen TV, DVD player, and CD stereo sound system. Sit on the sofa and look at the Gulf of Mexico from this fifth-floor condo, or go on the balcony and watch the dolphins playing in the water.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a large dresser, 40-inch flat screen TV and blue-ray player in an armoire, two nightstands, a private full-sized bathroom, and doors leading to the balcony with a view of the Gulf. The guest bedroom has two twin beds, a large dresser, nightstand, 32-inch flat screen TV, and a connecting full-sized bathroom, which also opens to the living area. Look out the window in the guest bedroom and see the lagoon on the north side. Both bedrooms have great closet and drawer space.


The dining area has a glass top table which seats six and a granite bar which seats three. The kitchen is complete with every large and small appliance you will need: side-by-side refrigerator with ice and water in the door, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, coffeepot, blender, toaster, mixer, and can opener.

A wide variety of pots, pans, dishes, glassware, and other utensils are available. The kitchen has a separate pantry with lots of shelf space and even a place to put the garbage can. Also, the condo has a separate laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer, ironing board, and iron. All linens and towels are provided.

DIRECTIONS: From Interstate 10, take Highway 59 south. When you reach the beach, turn right on Highway 182 (West Beach Boulevard). Go approximately three-fourths of a mile, and Island Royale is on the left on the beautiful white beaches of Gulf Shores, just across the street from Ike's Beach Rental Service.

The modern yellowish-tan building has a white diamond shape on the front and an upper level parking area. You may park anywhere that is not numbered. Some of the parking is covered. Carts are available in the elevator area for an easy move in. Have a great vacation!! Once you get here, you will not want to leave, but you will want to come back again and again and again!!!

The condo is very nice and super clean.

  • 5 of 5

The condo listing is very accurate. The location is handy to restaurants and activities. We have been spending a yearly vacation in this condo for 10 years now. It's always so clean, well maintained and the customer service from the owners is outstanding. It's a great place to stay.

We love this condo!! And I cannot wait to book our next trip!! It's located right on the beach and within short driving distance to several bars/restaurants (some are even within walking distance), Walmart, Target, an awesome Outlet Mall, and even a zoo!! (We did all of these things!) We took our 21 month old son to the beach for the first time, so I had no clue what to expect. Being located right on the beach made it so easy to come and go to the beach as we wanted without a lot of hassle. We could go first thing in the morning, back up for a nap and back down for a sunset walk. It was the best! The enclosed balcony was also fantastic. It kept our kiddo entertained when he had enough fun on the beach and in the water. He could people watch and look out at the water, he loved it! The condo is extremely clean and Mike and Debra are so nice and easy to work with. I would highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Gulf Shores, you will not be disappointed!!

Best weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our son’s first weekend beach trip & all I can say was he had a blast!! We really had such a great time with lots of laughs & memories made!! My husband got to watch the turtjes go out to sea early Saturday morning. The condo is just beautiful with a perfect beach view. We are planning on coming back next year. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your condo.

Wonderful place!!

  • 5 of 5

Island Royale 505 isn’t perfect! We loved the location - easy walk to all the activities of Gulf Shores and yet far enough away from all the noise and all the traffic! There was nothing we needed that the condo didn’t have. Mike and Debra have thought of everything! Thank you for sharing your awesome condo with us. We’ll be back!!

Owner's Response: My guest let me know that the "isn't" was a typo. It should have said "is."

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Simply an incredible condo with a million dollar view. You will not be disappointed with this place. All the amenities of your own home with dual views of the ocean from the living room & master bedroom. Condo is exactly as listed. Clean & maintained well. Debra could not be easier to work with. I highly recommend this place. It was our second time staying here & has become our favorite vacation spot. There are so many things to do if that’s your thing & there is absolutely nothing to do but watch the dolphins in the ocean if that’s your thing. Our family will for sure be back.
