About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Gulf-front, 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on 10th floor with fabulous views from the large, private bubble balcony. There's a dining table and chairs on the balcony for that dinner by the sea. 9' ceilings, 8' doors, crown molding and granite countertops in fully-equipped kitchen.

This 8-year-old condo was recently painted (November 2011) in soothing shades of earth tones. (Ever notice how most condos are almost all white!) All trim and doors are antique white. There is an elegant Travertine tile in the living area and leopard print carpet in the bedrooms. There is a walk-in laundry room with full-size washer and dryer, a pantry, 300 thread count bed linens and extra thick towels. No Wicker anywhere!!!

Each bedroom has its own cable TV and VCR or DVD. Living area has a sleeper sofa and a nice entertainment center with TV, DVD and stereo/CD player. Master Bedroom has king-size bed, private bath and Gulf view through sliding glass doors to balcony. Beautiful view of Little Lagoon from the front door which is 2 steps to the elevators (2). Only 6 units per floor. This is not one of those monster condos - we have under 100 units in the building.

There is parking for 2 cars per unit on property with some covered parking on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are 2 elevators to prevent long waits, a cardio workout room, sauna and steam rooms, outdoor pool with swim-thru to indoor pool, 2 hot tubs, charcoal grills, card room, bicycle racks & storage.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have been happily married for 22 years and have always dreamed of owning a condo on the beach. Our 3 sons and 1 daughter (30, 25, 16, & 12 years of age) have enjoyed vacationing at the beach every summer for many years. We have rented several gulf front properties through VRBO over the years with each having its own unique touches. Our family loves the beach and we plan to retire there someday.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
When we decided to make our dream of being gulf front property owners a reality there were several things to consider. Clean family friendly beaches, fun activities, good restaurants, nice accommodations, year around amenities for adults as well as the kids, & most importantly a comfortable distance from our residence in Northeast Arkansas. Island Royale in Gulf Shores is everything we wanted and much more.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have tried to make 'Our Vacation Spot' a place that our family could feel at home as well as yours. We want our unit to be a place you will want to return year after year to make memories. Take advantage of our fully equipped kitchen and/or grilling area beach side to prepare a meal that you can enjoy on our spacious bubble balcony. Enjoy the indoor/outdoor pool any time of the year. We provide our guest with 6 reclining beach chairs, 2 beach umbrellas, & lots of toys for the kiddos to enjoy playing in the sand. Weather you are playing on the beach or relaxing inside we are sure you want to come back again & again!
