About Cindy Ikerd

We love the beach and the convenient location of Southern Sands. We've owned it since 1997 and have loved every minute of our time in Gulf Shores!

Cindy Ikerd purchased this condo in 1997

Why Cindy Ikerd chose Gulf Shores

We fell in love with the great view and beautiful beach and the smallness of this complex. There are only 18 units, which means the beach is never crowded and there is ample parking. There are many restaurants and souvenir shops within walking distance. The convenience is just what we were looking for. This complex is family friendly and snowbirds are welcome!

What makes this condo unique

From Southern Sands you can walk to Pink Pony Pub, The Hangout, Bahama Bob's, Desotos, The Steamer and Sea N Suds. There are also several souvenir shops along the way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo was very clean and neat. It was comfortable and had great beach views. It is in a great location with easy access to restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back here!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great and so was the property. All was as described. We recommend Southern Sands to all of our friends that ask where we stay at Gulf Shores. We have stayed in multiple units over the years and are always happy with things. Thanks!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Loved it. Only complaint was the elevator was out, but that's not the owners fault! The unit was clean and had great space for our group! Will for sure try and book this one again.

Great vacation, excellent place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Gulf Shores!! We LOVED this condo!! It fit our family of 4 perfect! It is in a great location, we could walk to almost everything and at night we could sit out on the beach and listen to the band's at The Hangout! The pool was nice and not crowded. The chair attendants at the beach were super friendly and very helpful! We even got to witness baby sea turtles hatching right in front of the condo!

Everyone we met was super friendly! Don't have anything bad to say about our stay!! Cindy was AMAZING to work with! The worse part about our trip was leaving! The week went by way to fast. We will definitely be back and we will stay in 203 again!!! The condo had everything we needed and a few things we forgot at home! We all showered within 15 minutes of each other (1 person in each bathroom at the same time) and we never ran out of hot water. The washer and dryer were never full and right across the hall from us and we had a beautiful view of the beach from out balcony!! I say stay here, you will NOT be disappointed!! The Wi-Fi worked great too and many channels on the tv if you don't sleep at night like me!

We can't wait to go back and now think of #203 as our second home!!

The condo was very cozy, and easily accommodated all five of us!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved that the condo was only 18 units. There was always parking. We rarely met anyone on the stairwell (I don't use elevators)! The pool was never crowded, and the grill was always available! The condo was just as stated online.

We appreciated the beds being comfortable, and the sheets/comforter/blankets being soft and cozy.

The kitchen was well stocked with anything we might have forgotten. There was plenty of cabinet and counter space for what we brought.

We specifically chose this condo because it was on the beach. It was nice to walk downstairs to the pool, then to our beach chairs, and the water within maybe 5 minutes. We could also sit on the balcony and easily watch our kids play at the pool.

Another bonus was that the condo was within walking distance to anything we needed. We walked to The Hangout and Bahama Bobs Beach Cafe for meals, and stopped in a souvenir shop along the way.

It was just a 5-10 minute drive to local attractions. We went to Pirate Island for miniature golf, and The Track for Go Karts and Bumper Boats!

We were very happy with our stay, and would book here again!

Fantastic Condo for Family Vacation or a Wonderful Beach Get Away !

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the size of the condo property and the decor of the condo, the ease of getting to the pool and beach without having to wade through all the people. Enjoy the close proximity of restaurants, shopping, enjoyed the "handy notebook of places to go and favorite restaurants and menus" to help guide us to the Owners favorite places to eat around the area! (Sea and Suds is now a family favorite) :) WE will definitely be back !!!

What a great condo! The location cannot be beat! My kids loved the balcony with the views of the ocean and pool. Plenty of space for the four of us. We will definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.
