About the Property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Location-Location-Location. Come stay in this newly remodeled condo that not only has a fantastic location, but an awesome VIEW. I have just completed a remodel (Dec 2015) that includes new wood look porcelain tile throughout the inside to compliment the granite countertops. In addition there is a new flat top stove, new microware and new dishwasher to compliment the ice in the door refrigerator. Newly painted walls round out the remodel. A new dining set was added in Jan 2017.
Gulf Front, directly on the beach, about 1/3 mile from Hwy 59/West Beach Blvd intersection. Right in the heart of Gulf Shores. Unobstructed views from this 6th floor condo, watch parasailing and kite surfing from living room or balcony. Or go for a parasail yourself, vendor is within walking distance(during summer season). Tropic Isles is a low density condo with only 40 units in the building with an outdoor pool. Very family friendly.
This one bedroom has a queen bed in the bedroom, plus bunk beds in the hall. Queen sized sofa sleeper in the living room. Fully furnished kitchen, with side by side fridge with ice & water in the door. Granite countertops, backsplash, sink & faucet in kitchen. Has microwave, coffee maker, blender, 2 flat screen tv's, wi-fi and toaster. Front load washer and dryer. Full bath has double granite vanity and tub/shower combo. Central air conditioner & heat.

I live within 5 miles and will be available if you should need me.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
