About Vicky Brunelle

Purchased unit in April 2010. I live in Gulf Shores and my family has grown up on the local beaches. My dream has always been to own a beach condo. Sharing the condos with others has allowed me to achieve that.

Vicky Brunelle purchased this condo in 2010

Why Vicky Brunelle chose Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores is a family friendly area with beautiful white beaches. Living in the area, Gulf Shores was the perfect fit for me. Tropic Isles is a low density complex with unobstructed views of the beach and pool. When I opened the door and could see the beach from there, I knew I had found the Place for me.

What makes this condo unique

Walking distance to many restaurants and Gulf State Pier. Easy to call down to the kids at the pool. Right in the center of Gulf Shores. Close to the Shrimp Festival.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your condo with us. My kids and I needed a break from the Indiana weather. We had a wonderful week. The view was great and the location couldn't have been better. This was the first vacation I have taken by myself with my 3 kids and felt safe and comfortable here. We hope to be back again.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our first family vacation with our children. 4yr old and 2yr old. The location was perfect. Close to beach and shopping as well as food. My kids loved going out in beach daily. They also swam in the pool. They loved the bunk beds to sleep in. The condo was perfect size. Big enough for us to come go change eat and sleep. The balcony... wow. The ocean and sky was beautiful and we could see it right from the balcony. My husband and I would sit out there every morning when we got up and before bed at night. We seen a pod of dolphins playing just off the beach... the kids loved that. We also had the privilege of seeing 2 sea turtle nests Hatch and make way to sea... :) the vacation couldn't have been more perfect. I'm counting down the days til we come back! Mrs Vickie is amazing. Communicates promptly. Super helpful. And she puts love and time into the cleaning remodeling and decorations. My kids refer to it as "our beach house". Super satisfied customers. :)

Owner's Response: How exciting that you got to see the turtles hatch and make there way to the water. I have not got to see that in person yet, just in videos. It seems like we had more turtle nest this year. They were not sure if the 2 nest you saw would make it or not because tropical storm Carolyn brought the water line up to the nest. Wasn't sure if the water had saturated the eggs or not. Sandbags had been put around the nest during the storm. Glad they survived and that you were able to witness it.

My husband and I were so pleased with the whole arrangement. The location of the condo with the incredible water view was wonderful. The amenities that Vicky provided in the condo, such as beach chairs and kitchen utensils, made the stay even more pleasing. I had to contact her during our stay with a question, and she responded back promptly. You will not be disappointed with the condo.

Best location, Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic week. This condo is in a low density building and the owner of this unit, Vicky, has really updated nicely. As for the location, it's smack on the beach and within walking distance to restaurants and shops. Wouldn't pick any other condo. Even got to see right off the balcony, volunteers monitoring the sea turtles as they were hatching and marching toward the gulf.
