About The Owner

We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores for years and love the beach. We chose Tropic Isles because of the great location. Many nice restaurants, stores, and shops are within walking distance. We feel very comfortable here with our children and have already made great memories. We hope you will make many great memories of your own at our home away from home!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Alabama

We love being directly on the beach!! There is always some kind of activity to do in the Gulf Shores area. If we are not building sand castles with our kids or swimming in the pool, we are walking down the beach collecting sea shells to add to our collection. This area is very family friendly and is a safe and clean place to vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We love sitting on our private balcony overlooking the pool and beach. Drinking our favorite beverage while watching the dolphins swim by is a bonus as well..

First condo on the beach experience

  • 5 of 5

Loved the condo. Easy access to all the surrounding areas such as restaurants, shopping and most importantly the beach. Beings that this was my first visit to the beach the experience was outstanding and with a great place to stay I'll definitely be back. The condo was very well cleaned, updated and the amenities were very useful. I definitely have no complaints about anything and will book again for my next visit.

Great condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and best location. My son and I walked to the hangout at night and listened to the band and walked back crabbing. Having a washer and dryer was great. Sat on the balcony in the morning and enjoyed the peace and quite. The condo has everything you need. Thank you guys for sharing your condo with us.

We really enjoyed our stay, as usual! What's not to love ❤️? Wonderful view, pool, days and nights on the beach, and just a short drive to anything you may want or need. We will see you again next year!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Condo has a wonderful view & it is nice because there are only 40 condos in the unit. Everything you would need the owners have supplied. The grounds are well kept & the beach is great. Highly recommend this place!

Great place to vacation

  • 4 of 5

Stunning views and convenient location made this condo a knock out for our first family vacation. With 3 young kids we could've used more space, but it worked fine as we weren't in the room much anyway. The pull-out couch mattress needs replaced - my daughter could feel every spring. The patio furniture needs new cushions as well, as they were quite uncomfortable. That said, the condo was fully stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen as well as beach chairs, toys, and an umbrella. The reserved cabana at the beach was an excellent touch to this stay too.

This building is very low density, we never had to wait for an elevator, and the beach and pool are just steps away. Also within walking distance to many restaurants and souvenir shops.

The grills are very gross, I wouldn't recommend using those, but they did have a portable grill inside for us. We also saw dolphins jumping and playing twice from our balcony.

Overall this was a terrific stay - it just could use a few minor improvements.

Owner's Response: So glad your family had a wonderful vacation. Yes, sleeper sofa's are typically not as comfortable as regular beds but they are convenient to have. We will get the balcony cushions replaced/repaired as needed. With the Tropic Isles poolside grills being used and cleaned daily, they can get worn from normal use but are still a nice perk to have by the pool. Yes, there is an amazing view from our balcony. Hope you can stay with us for your next vacation in Gulf Shores!
