About Marcia Ballard

We live on a catfish and cattle farm in the country but love to come to the beach! We have two condos here and would love for you to come stay with us and experience the beauty of Gulf Shores for yourself.

Marcia Ballard purchased this condo in 2014

Why Marcia Ballard chose Alabama

There is no better place than Gulf Shores to have a great vacation. The water is beautiful and relaxing. The many activities and great restaurants in the area will make you want to come back again and again.

What makes this condo unique

The view from our balcony is one of the best on the beach. We are a low density complex so you will have no trouble finding the perfect spot for your beach chair. Our second floor unit allows you to see the gulf water and the pool. Everyone here is friendly and helpful. Many restaurants, shops and activities are within walking distance!

Loved the condo

  • 4 of 5

Took my 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren for Spring Break and loved the condo. Short walk down to the ocean, heated pool, beautiful views. The only issues I had were with the coffee maker and the toaster. Owner was notified after we returned home & resolved. The description about walking to Hangout, etc. is a little bit overstated, but the drive was short. Would stay here again

Clean and comfy!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is always clean and has everything you need for a comfortable visit. The ocean view is awesome! I only wish the condos had a walkway over the deep sand on the property. For those of us who have a few years on us or bad knees and backs, it would make the trek to the beach much easier.

Quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Marcia's condo at the Tropic Isles. The condo was clean and you could tell she put a lot of her own personal touches on the place. There was plenty of dishes, cookware and linens as far as we were concerned we lacked for nothing. If you get the opportunity we highly recommend staying at the Tropic Isles at Marcia's condo #203.

Fun beach trip to Gulf Shores!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Tropic Isle property. The location is great. The unit we were in was on the second level and the balcony was directly over the pool and looked out to the beach. We had a great stay and would love to go back sometime.
