Property description

We offer a free night special in the fall for those staying a week and checking in on a weeknight... (monday thru friday check in). Please ask for a quote, since the vrbo calculator does not take this special into account.

Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the 4th floor of a low density complex. The beach view is grand from our balcony… right in front of you as you walk out the door! This complex is one of Gulf Shores’ most popular rental complexes, with affordable rates, convenience of walking to restaurants/shopping and direct gulf -front condos.

Recently replaced carpet in bedrooms and put new tile in living room/dining room, as well as added an over the range microwave and a new stove.

The living room has a large window showing a stunning view of the sugar sand beach and sparkling blue waves below. From the balcony you will enjoy watching the activities on the beach, the red sunset or taking a nap listening to the methodical rolling of waves against the shore.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a private bath. There is a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD player.

The second bedroom has a beautiful view of the beach through the double windows! It also has a queen sized bed, a flat screen TV with cable and an XBOX 360 for the kids enjoyment! The XBOX 360 will allow game play and also play DVDs. It has built in WIFI, so connecting to XBOX live with your own account is a snap!

The living room has a large flat screen TV with cable and a DVD player. It also has a queen sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want, the dining area has seating for four.

Both bedrooms and the living room have plush carpet, giving the unit a home-like feel. In addition, this is one of the rare Island Shores units that has a washer/dryer inside the unit. It is an all in one system that washes and then dries. This system is a ventless system, which allows condensed moisture to go down the drain. Island Shores does not allow vents from the units to the outside.

The sparkling pool is located on the north side of the complex, which keeps sand and debris from blowing into it constantly. It has plenty of seating for laying out in the sun or watching the kids swim.

Please NOTE: I answer vrbo inquiries once each day, usually after 9 pm central time. I have a full time job and therefore generally cannot answer inquiries during the day. Thank you for understanding.

We are sometimes asked if we give military discounts. We do not give military discounts, however, we donate 8 full weeks per year to Operation Reconnect. Operation Reconnect is a Non-Profit organization that provides complimentary vacations to combat veterans and their families. For more information please see their website at:

The Island Shores complex is a low density, family oriented facility with only 59 units in a building with 6 floors. It is located in the heart of Gulf Shores, with shopping, Alabama State Fishing Pier, restaurants, fresh seafood markets and much more all within walking distance of the unit. The Sea and Suds is a wonderful restaurant on the beach within a stone’s throw of our complex.

No smoking and no pets inside any of the units at Island Shores!

There is a drink vending machine, a coin operated laundry and of course an elevator and luggage carts for your convenience.

The Complex is within a short drive of several grocery stores (including a Wal -Mart Supercenter), pharmacies, package stores, movie rentals, spas, deep sea fishing charters, movie theaters, golf courses, water parks, mini golf, the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, Gulf Shores State Park, the Alabama Birding Trail and Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge.

There is a great local cheesemaker near the condo in Elberta Alabama, about 20 minutes away. Sweet Home Farms has a small herd of Guernsey milk cows that they milk to produce a variety of high quality cheeses. They produce cheeses ranging from incredibly smooth to wonderfully sharp! The blue cheese is unbelievable! They are open friday and saturday only from 10 am til 5 pm.

History buffs can ride out to Fort Morgan State Park, built in 1834 and heavily used during the civil war. For those that want to visit her sister fort across Mobile Bay, Fort Gaines, they can take the interesting ride on the car ferry over to Dauphin Island! Makes a great day trip!

For those that have never experienced the night life on the beach, you are in for a wonderful time. There are many night clubs in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The Pink Pony and The Hangout are a half mile from our condo. Live Bait is a popular spot in Orange Beach. All have live music most of the time. One of the best places to experience the Gulf Coast nightlife and meet people ages 18 to 80 is the world famous roadhouse, the Florabama Lounge. Located right on the Alabama/Florida line, the Florabama has beach access, great food and some of the best live music around, but don’t take the kids past 6 pm… unless they are at least 18 years old!

Island Shores is only an hour away from Mobile Alabama, 30 minutes from Pensacola Florida, and 10 minutes from Foley, Alabama. Located directly on the beach at 421 East Beach Blvd, ½ half mile east of where 59 ends at the public beach in Gulf Shores. From I-10, take highway 59 to Gulf Shores and take a left on East Beach Blvd, then go ½ mile and Island Shores is on the right. From the Foley Beach Express, after going through the toll bridge keep going straight until you dead end into Canal Road, then take a right and follow it to 59 and take another left, then when 59 dead ends at the beach take another left and go ½ mile and Island Shores is on your left.

For your security and convenience, we have this unit listed with a rental company. But, by going directly with us through VRBO, you will save a bundle! When you decide to book with us, we will get you in touch with the company and we will tell them the rates on which we have agreed. You don't have to worry about giving a stranger your paypal or credit card info, or for that matter mailing in a large deposit. They allow you the convenience and safety of completing the booking through their secure systems, have convenient key pick up, and 24/7 customer service.

We have 4 other condos available in the Gulf Shores area. Check out our 5th floor unit at Island Shores at VRBO #555510. We also own a 2nd floor unit at Island Shores, VRBO 555508 and our 9th floor Seaside unit is listed with VRBO as number 681059. We also have a 2 bedroom that is a less expensive, but it is not direct beach view. It is on the canal behind Papa Rocco's Pizza in Gulf Shores a few blocks from the beach. It is Venetian Isle vrbo #910888. To view any of these other VRBO listings, just type in the VRBO listing number above into the search line in VRBO.

If you happen to be in need of two adjoining units, then please ask because we have friends that own the unit right beside our 5th floor unit and we can get you in touch with them and coordinate rentals during the same time frame.

Minimum rental age for this unit is 25. We also have 2 other beachfront units that have a minimum rental age of 21. They are vrbo 55508 and 681059. We do have one other unit (NOT direct beach front) that has a minimum age of 19. It is Venetian Isle Condos behind Papa Rocco's on the canal in Gulf Shores. VRBO #910888.

Hope you enjoy your stay!!
