About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

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. New tile walk in shower, with glass enclosure, in the master bath.

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.


Walking distance to Bahama Bob's and the Hangout. Large convenience store, Peir 33, across the street.

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 counter tops 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 14 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!

Great Golf at the Gulf

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. When we arrived last Saturday a little rain and then a lot of Golf, Beach and restaurants. Gulf Shores Country Club is a great course with a low price. Love the area and will be back. A lot of good people everywhere we went. Condo was perfect! And a lot to do near by.

The condo was very clean and decorated very nice and up to date. The view of the ocean was amazing. It was nice to get up in the morning and enjoy a cup of coffee on the balcony overlooking the ocean. I would definitely stay here again. Prices were very reasonable.

Perfect! Perfect condo! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this condo in late Sept into Oct. It couldn't have been a better location! The condo was beautiful, clean, comfortable, nicely stocked kitchen. The property backed right up to the beach! Sitting on the patio looking at the Gulf and hearing the waves was amazing! This is definitely a place we would return to!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this condo justice! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice this unit is. It was very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. We enjoyed the beachfront patio and hearing the waves all night was so peaceful. We would definitely stay here again.

The property is in a great location and very well kept!

  • 5 of 5

Mr. Marshallprobably earned multiple repeat stays from us with this property. What a find! The condo is very well kept and quiet. The 4th floor balcony is very spacious and has a great view! The master bathroom shower is probably the nicest I've ever personally used! Very big! The only downside to the condo building is no bathrooms on ground level but that was really no issue since the beach is in such close proximity to the condo. Just a short walk and elevator ride to the 3rd floor public restroom or your room. Pier 33 store right across the street has most any grocery items you want and you can skip all the traffic. Condos adjacent aren't huge and there are some smaller ones on either side of those - beaches not crowded at all like some others I've visited. Overall, a GREAT experience and i just know that we will be back again. Super , super property. Great job with your detailed description and pictures on VRBO, Mr. Marshall - it sold me and I'm sure others will take notice, as well ! Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us !

Clean and Comfortable Condo

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo for 7 nights in August 2017. The condo was very clean and well maintained. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave. The owners are very friendly, responsive, and accommodating. We plan to stay here again in the future.
