Property description

You will love the view from this large curved balcony. You are just steps from the white sand and water in the Gulf. In July 2014 ABC's Good Morning America rated Gulf Shores as one of the 5 favorite vacation places in the U.S. Enjoy both Luxury and Leisure with a great 4th floor view of the beautiful Gulf Shores beach. USA Today on June 27, 2012 rated the water on Gulf Shores Beaches at 5 stars, the top rating. Travel Channel named Gulf Shores as one of the best 5 beaches in the U.S.
Don't walk across the street or drive and park to go to the beach, this condo is right on the beach.

New paint, mattresses and bedding, entire condo updated. You will enjoy the new feel right on the ocean.

This 4th floor Gulf Front unit looks out on pure white sand and beautiful gulf water. The oversized curved balcony allows for unobstructed views of the beach and provides a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets. The large, high quality outdoor table and chairs offers you the perfect place to have coffee and meals or to simply put your feet up on an ottoman and relax with a good book.
Inside the condo you will find upscale furnishings and decorations. With 9 foot ceilings, leather sofa and love seat and a 40 inch flat screen TV with DVD in the living area you will feel like you are on a luxurious vacation in the Caribbean. As in the living area, the master bedroom opens to the balcony and is beautifully furnished with a king size bed and 32 inch flatscreen TV with DVD. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and allows guests to enjoy a 28 inch flat screen TV with built-in DVD player. Each bedroom has a full private bath allowing for the privacy you deserve. Should you need it, a sleeper sofa in the living area converts easily into an additional bed.

Four guests can sit comfortably around the beautiful glass top table for leisure dining or playing cards or other games. A full granite bar seats three guests and provides a handy place for snacking or visiting with the cook. The spacious kitchen has granite countertops throughout and ample dishes and equipment to make your stay quite pleasant. This condo has a utility room with a full size washer and dryer so you don’t have to return home with dirty clothes, and the large hot water heater provides plenty of hot water for washing bodies, dishes and clothes all at the same time.

Island Royale is a 12 year old unit within easy walking distance of everything in Gulf Shores, including shopping and restaurants. The complex is only 83 units with 6 units per floor which allows for an uncrowded beach and comfortable use of both the indoor and outdoor swim-through pools. Comfortable wooden beach loungers and umbrellas may be rented by the day or week. There are hot tubs for your relaxation in both the indoor and outdoor areas. If you like to cook outdoors, you will find BBQ grills waiting for you on the ground floor and you can work off that extra hamburger in the workout/exercise room and sauna on the 3rd floor.

Wired and wireless internet is free for guests in our condo so you have easy access to all internet needs. We believe you will appreciate that this is a non smoking and “NO PETS ARE ALLOWED IN THE UNIT'.
This condo is our home away from home and we believe you will enjoy it as much as we do. We invite you to come to our condo to relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of being on the ocean with all the luxury of a first class condo. You will not want to go home!
