About Angela , manager

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.

Angela , manager purchased this house in 2009

Why Angela , manager chose Gulf Shores

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.

Very good.

  • 4 of 5

Very good. The only issue we had was the handle in bath tub needs repair. Minor problem.

Owner's Response: The handle in the guest bathroom bath tub is a bit round (with ribs) and should be replaced with one that is easier to grasp. A plumber will be scheduled to do so. The comment is appreciated.

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to Gulf Shores every summer and this was without a doubt one of the nicest cleanest and well-kept places we have stayed. The owner was easy to contact and very accommodating. We will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect location and gracious owner!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th stay at the Island Sun and we'd never stay anywhere else when coming to Gulf Shores. It's location is excellent and within walking distance to many restaurants as well as entertainment venues. The beach is a short walk away. The home is equipped with all you need to cook as well as take care of your laundry before heading home. The deck is awesome for quiet time at sunrise and sunset. Truly a home away from home! Mr. Al is so helpful and truly cares about your stay. He has helpful suggestions on where to eat as well as things to do. Don't hesitate to stay at the Island Sun!

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!
