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 Alabama

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!

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.

Best baby moon, great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 9 days for our babymoon and I still wasn't ready to leave! Perfect location to walk to restaurants and The Hangout, beautiful view and easy access to the beach. I would stay here anytime, and hope to come back in the future with our daughter.

Fabulous Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a terrific time in Gulf Shotes. Our stay at Siuthern Sands was perfect. We had plenty of privacy. An excellent and uncrowned place on the beach. Our kids had tons of room to swim and play. Our condo was within walking distance of several attractions and awesome places to eat! We were within walking distance of Bahama Bob's and we took advantage of it! Sea'N'Suds is right down the road, as well as, plenty of shopping spots!
