Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: Our family are original owners of this beachfront condo. We have enjoyed many vacations in Gulf Shores and we are always excited to see the new attractions to visit beyond the beach. Gulf Shores is a great place to build family memories. We always wish we could spend more time there.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
We love the location of Island Shores directly on the beach with great views. We love to walk the beach as this condo is located between the State Park Pier and the Gulf Shores Public Beach with many great restaurants. Walking to destinations is very convenient. Our condo has been renovated and redecorated recently.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The ground floor access and beach view attracted our family to buy this condo before the building was built, no stairs or elevators. This is an end unit with 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms, with easy beach and pool access. Also very easy to walk to beach attractions, restaruants and shops.
