About Vicki

As a native Californian, I spent my childhood growing up in Manhattan Beach, Ca. A new job opportunity brought me to Tennessee in 1987 after college. Looking for the nearest beach, a co-worker suggested Gulf Shores. In the Spring of 1988, I came to Gulf Shores for the first time and I was stunned by its natural beauty, white sandy beaches, blue-green waters, and peaceful serenity. I have vacationed in Gulf Shores every year since 1988.

Vicki purchased this condo in 2013

Why Vicki chose Alabama

It's all about the balcony and the view. I believe that Island Royale condos have best balconies, especially the corner units on the east side of the building. The east corner balconies do not get the hot afternoon sun in the summer. And, since the building is right on the sand, the sound of the waves on the beach make the balcony my favorite part of the condo. I also like the layout of the penthouse corner units in Island Royale. The floorplan offers the option for 3 private master suites, so, you have the flexibility of spending time together in the living room or balcony, but everyone can have their own space too. Island Royale is a smaller building on a less densely built stretch of beach in Gulf Shores so the beach is never crowded, even on the most popular holidays.

This condo was absolutely amazing. It had everything we needed and was super spacious.. could tell it has been recently updated. Carpet in the bedrooms only is a super plus I don't like file floors before I get in bed so I loved that feature! It is a go to for a family vacation!!

The room was nice, clean, and the view was as described. The owners were easy to communicate with and they were quick to respond. The pool was on the west side of the building in between another tall condo which means it's shaded most of the day. There are only two elevators which results in frequent stops and occasionally cramped rides.

The room was not on the top floor which seems deceiving as it's marketed as a "Penthouse". The definition of penthouse is the top floor. I don't understand why there are 5 penthouse floors. I'm not sure why the development choose this classification as everyone we encountered was perplexed as to what is P1 P2 .......P5 on the elevator floor selection.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. The P level condominiums get access to the roof hot tub and also the gym on the 3rd floor. The P level units also have reserved, deeded parking spots in the parking garage so owners and guests don't have to circle the lot looking for a space out in the hot sun or torrential down pours. The views are substantially better from up there. Yes, the developer calls the top 5 floors "Penthouse Levels" , we didn't come up with that name, they did.
