About Brookelynn Garrett

I own and manage rental property in my own hometown, and in Gulf Shores besides this condo. My wife, three daughters, and I have always enjoyed warm weather in Alabama; now that I am finally settling down, my wife and I have decided to buy a condo. This is our home away from home! We love relaxing and enjoying the sun!

Brookelynn Garrett purchased this condo in 2012

Why Brookelynn Garrett chose Alabama

We love the southern Alabama beaches, and because we have friends living within thirty miles of Gulf Shores, we decided to buy beachfront property. We try to come down to Gulf Shores every chance we get!

What makes this condo unique

My wife is an avid shopper and she enjoys the two shopping outlets located in Gulf Shores, plus the several surf shops in Gulf Shores too. My three daughters and their friends enjoy going to the festivals held annually year around, going to The Hangout less than one mile from our condo, and go-kart racing in Gulf Shores! We all go out to eat at our favorite restaurant throughout the week! There are over seventy-five restaurants within ten miles of our condo. Our favorite restaurants are the Shrimp Basket, Lambert's, LuLu's, the Fish River Grill, and The Rib Shak BBQ.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Overall the condo is very nice. Walking to the beach was very close and the property is well kept. We loved being able to walk to restaurants and shopping. While there we drove to Mobile to tour the USS Alabama Battleship and the USS Drum Submarine. Another day we drove to Pensacola to see the Blue Angels practice and tour the Naval Museum. This area definitely has something for everyone.

Good spot at Island Shores

  • 5 of 5

Island Shores complex has been our go to for a few years due to its location.

It is right on a nice beach (pool is on parking lot side) and is within walking distance to Hangout and other restaurants. The condo was very adequate and clean when we arrived. Being on the 2nd floor is perfect as sometimes this places elevator can get quite busy. Would suggest this condo for people looking at a place to stay near here.

OK for the price

  • 2 of 5

We went for Spring Break (2 adults, 4 kids ages 8-13). The view is as described - right on the water - beautiful! Location is great - close to everything. The condo is a bit tight for 6 people. It is 2 bedrooms with a sofa bed, but it's fairly small. The deck only seats 3 and is tight for that with furniture that needs replacing. The unit needs some TLC. The blinds to the deck fell on my head when I shut the door, the toilets are both loose, faucet leaked, the floors were still sandy when we arrived, there was a toilet plunger in a kitchen cabinet (eww!), a few light bulbs were missing, and several dishes had crumbs in them. It needs a good cleaning (dust bunnies in the corners/closets) and some maintenance . The master is in the front & quite dark since you wouldn't usually open the blinds to where people are walking by. The other bedroom is next to the beach but the window is behind the bed. No views unless you go out on the deck.

The pool is in the parking lot but at least there is one (not heated). The unit is on the second floor which made it easily accessible especially since they shut down the elevator the second day (for 4-6 weeks). It's a 6 story building. I would hate to be checking in after that!

It was fine since we were not there much and one of the cheapest properties on the beach. But I think I'll spend a little more with the size of our family next time.

I did contact the owner when we first got there & he recommended calling the cleaning service if I wasn't happy, but it was late & I didn't want anyone coming back over. It would be too crowded to have them clean with us there.
