About the property

Condo/1 Bedroom + Bunk Area + Queen Sleeper Sofa/1.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! Tropic Isles is a gulf front, low density (only 40 total units), family-oriented complex located on the beach at the heart of Gulf Shores. We are located approximately .3 miles west of Hwy 59 "T" and the public beach area which means you will be within walking distance of Bahama Bob's, The Hangout, Pink Pony Pub, restaurants, and souvenir shops. If you don't mind jumping in the car, you are minutes away from Gulf State Pier, Orange Beach, Flora-Bama, The Wharf and Amphitheater, zoo, golf courses, marinas, Fort Morgan, ferry to Dauphin Island, dolphin tours or a short drive north on Hwy 59 to the Outlet Mall for shopping.

Tropic Isles #402 is a one bedroom, 1 1/2 bath unit with crew bunks in the hallway and a queen size sleeper sofa. There is a pocket door which provides privacy to the bunks and bedroom from the kitchen and living area should you desire. Two Flat Screen TVs, free Wi-Fi. Fully furnished kitchen with updates to counter tops and appliances planned for Spring 2017. Washer/Dryer. This unit is perfect for a small family or a couple needing a quiet get away. All balconies overlook the seasonally heated pool and enjoy a direct view of the Gulf.

The Tropic Isles complex is well maintained and offers great amenities for its guests such as beach side pool (for the kids who can't decide which is more fun), outdoor shower, charcoal grilling area, bathrooms near the pool area, supper easy access to the beach (short distance from elevator and pool) all without the crowded feeling you often have with the larger high rise accommodations. On-site parking (limited handicapped parking) with ample carts for transporting belongings to the elevator.

About Lori Smith

This is my family vacation home. We love the beach and want to share our home with others.

Lori Smith purchased this condo in 2005

Why Lori Smith chose Alabama

Gulf Shores was close to our home in Madison, MS. Its an easy drive from about anywhere in the south. The beaches are fantastic and the home is reasonably priced and we pass the savings on to you!! Its great for a week at the beach and close enough for a weekend getaway.

What makes this condo unique

Kiva Dunes for golf, Fort Morgan, Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, The Track for go carts, Goofy golf, Outlet malls, oh yeah and the BEACH!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous time in Gulf Shores. Beautiful beaches and lots for the kids to do. We enjoyed Tropic Isle's. It was nice and clean. Spacious rooms with everything we needed for a great holiday week. Highly recomended.

Enjoyed our stay...but dissappointed in the new parking pass policy

  • 3 of 5

I have stayed at this property for 5 years the first week of May to attend the AHSAA State Track meet. My husband and I usually have to drive separate because we carry some of the athletes down who are participating. Every year we are issued 2 parking passes. This year however, we were only issued one and told the second one would not be available (even though the pass itself states Maximum of 2 passes). Thankfully, the additional vehicle wasn't towed, but I'll keep this in mind for future trips.

Other than that it was a great time as usual!!

Nice property and the beach was great

  • 4 of 5

Overall the unit was in good condition, one of the folding doors to the bunk beds was barely standing when we got there, luckily was noticed before the kids tried to open it. The track had lost a screw and I guess the previous tenants decided to prop the door back instead of reporting. We had a great time at this unit, the only other problem we had ( which can be found at just about every unit) is that the tile floors were filthy ( feet would be black after walking on floor ).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your feedback!! The doors have been fixed and I appreciate knowing about the floors. I will report this to housekeeping and schedule a tile clean this fall. Hope to see you back in the future!
