About The Owner

My family and I enjoyed going to Gulf Shores so much, I found and bought this special spacious home. We love relaxing on the beach and getting away from it all! Although I come from one of the best restaurant cities in the US I look forward to the excellent food (especially seafood) in the area. Great food, fishing, golfing and shopping all within a few hundred feet of the Gulf and its activities.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama

This location is conveniently located near famous Desotos Restaurant, Oyster House, The Hang Out and the Pink Pony. The home has a view of the Gulf from the front porch. Beach access across the street which continues to Gulf State Park beach and the fishing pier. Large bedrooms with King Size beds and located on a quiet dead end street. Near Hwy. 59 & the 'T', (the beach road).

What makes this house unique

Completely furnished - just bring your personal belongings, relax and enjoy. Excellent location in the middle of most activities but with the privacy of a single family home.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our 3 children here. This place is beautiful! We loved the house, the location, the price. We were so close to everything the only thing I regret is not booking a longer stay. We did not have enough time to do everything we wanted to do. I loved the patio , especially the gate it kept our little toddler safe while she enjoyed playing in the evening. The beds are soooo comfortable too! The owner did a great job with this house , we will come back next year!

Second stay at Island Sun

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Island Sun recently for the second time. The house is located very close to several restaurants, the dog park, and the fishing pier. A walk to the beach only takes 5 minutes from closing the door to relaxing in a chair. Both trips we have brought our small dog and she loves it! We plan to stay here again in the future.

First time beach visit for the Grand Kids.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our 4 year old Grandson and 2 year old Granddaughter to the beach. The Island Sun more than met our expectations. It's on a quite little dead end street, but still close to everything. We will be renting again for sure. Maybe next time just a getaway for my wife and I.

Great rental home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at "The Island Sun" for 3 nights and found it to be very comfortable, clean and well kept. It is convenient to everything but on a very quiet dead end street. Hope to rent it again this year. Owner was very helpful and accomodating.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at "The Island Sun" for the month of March. The location was great since we could cross the road and arrive at the beach in ten minutes, yet the condo is on a quiet street with little traffic. The two bedrooms and living area are spacious. My husband enjoyed the DVR and flat screen TV. I appreciated the fact that we could bring our Cockapoo along.
