Perhaps the most recognizable feature of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are the 32 miles of white-sand beaches that stretch across the Alabama coastline.

About Theresa

We enjoy taking vacation as a family so we know how important it's to you as well. As such we're providing condos for rent so that you and your family can enjoy these great places.

Theresa purchased this condo in 2015

Why Theresa chose Gulf Shores

The 1st time we came to Gulf Shores we just could not believe the WHITE sand and EMERALD GREEN WATER! THIS location LOCATION LOCATION IS THE BEST! You can walk to everything you need. After driving and driving with non stop questions. Mom are we there yet? We get out of the car and don't have to get back in the car to eat or shop. Having perfect climate and family atmosphere attracted us to come back and get a place right on the beach. Our kids just love being able to go on the beach without having to cross any roads or walkways. We can watch them from the balcony. As you see this is perfect set-up!

What makes this condo unique

You're right on the beach not across the road. Directly beach front condo. You want to get a drink, freshen up, go shopping and/or dining all in walking distance. This is such a plus if you had a long drive and don't want to get back in the car! Please read the reviews the pictures don't do Justus to this condo.

Best Condo in Tropic Isles Building

  • 5 of 5

We just loved are stay so much we have booked for next year! it is such a plus to have the beach chairs set up each day in front of condo with someone that comes by and adjusts the umbrella for you during the day. The condo is so clean and organized you can really notice pride in ownership with these owner that rent their own condo! Not like other condo in this building. There is a big difference in condos. We will alway rent from Theresa

Lovely Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were thrilled when we arrived at #404 in Tropic Isles! It was raining when we arrived and found a covered garage with carts available to unload all our luggage on and roll to the elevator before moving our vehicle to the parking area. That was such a perk after a long day on the road! The condo itself was superbly cleaned and updated which made it easy to quickly relax into vacation mode! The view from our balcony was fabulous! We will definitely come back to this unit as we had NO problems, everything in the condo was perfect and Theresa made checking in and out so simple! Thank you again, Theresa!

My husband played golf everyday and I relaxed with a book on the beach. In the afternoons we took long strolls on the beach and enjoyed dining in the nearby restaurants. Totally relaxing week. The condo was clean and up to date. I loved the mattress although it was a little too soft for my husband who has a back condition. Definitely will stay here again!!
