Thank you for vising our Island Royale 503 unit in Gulf Shores. We own and manage all of our condos and enjoy helping our guests have a wonderful beach vacation experience.

The Island Royale is located on West Beach Blvd. in Gulf Shores. Our unit is located on the 5th floor (504) and features beautiful décor that will have you enjoying the inside (almost) as much as the outside. An oversized beach front private balcony with a panoramic view of emerald green water and white sandy beaches can be accessed from both the living room and master bedroom. You are just steps away from white sandy beaches and warm gulf waters.

The master bedroom includes a king-size pillowtop bed with down comforter, large dresser, TV/DVD, and private bathroom. Like to sleep late? The sliding glass doors feature black out drapes that will make it easy. You can also keep the drapes open and wake up to see the surf without getting up from bed.

The guest bedroom includes two comfort plush twin size beds, large dresser, night stand, 32-inch flat screen TV, DVD player and private bathroom. Nicely decorated and great for the kidos.

In the living room there is access to the balcony, large 35 inch HDTV/DVD/VCR and Stereo and a queen-size sleeper sofa and lounge chair. The Kitchen includes granite countertops and all upgraded appliances - side-by-side refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, electric range, and is well stocked with everything you need. There is a large pantry and plenty of cabinets too! The laundry room includes full-size washer and dryer plus an ironing board and iron. We have given every consideration in providing you with everything you will need while staying in our unit.

The Gulf Front balcony is large and includes a table seating for six and two lounge chairs. From here you can watch the sunrise over the gulf waters while you enjoy your morning coffee and enjoy glorious sunsets at the end of the day with a spectacular view.

Island Royale also offers inside/outside beachside pool, hot tubs, sauna, steam room, and exercise room overlooking the beach. Great restaurants and shopping, fishing, golf courses, and entertainment for all ages are close by.

If you are not familiar with the area and/or would like suggestions or information on shopping, dining, great children attractions and so much more please feel free to give us a call. We have enjoyed many great years in Gulf Shores and would like to help you do the same.

About Jason Willis

My family and I have vacationed in Gulf Shores since 2000 and absolutely love the area and the great family feel. There are a lot of things to do from Waterville, The Track, Deep Sea Fishing, Pairasailing, Dolphin Cruises and Horseback riding. So many wonderful places to eat also. We would love to share our new condo with you and also help you with any questions you have about the area or main attractions. We hope you enjoy your stay!!!

Jason Willis purchased this condo in 2010

Why Jason Willis chose Gulf Shores

Island Royale is one of our favorite places to stay. We enjoy the features the building has from its outdoor/indoor pool, sauna, steamroom and workout area. The condo is also located directly across from a convenience store which is great if you need snacks or for those early morning krispy kreme doughnuts.

What makes this condo unique

The unit is beautifully decorated with a soothing beach theme. It really has a calm and relaxing feel inside. The unit is very clean and well maintained. The beds are all very comfortable with plush pillow top king mattress in the master bedroom and plush twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. The couch is very comfortable with an almost new hidaway bed. The 5th floor balcony is high enough to have a really good view, but low enough that you have a good beach view and keep a close eye on your children (we have kids that's why I always relate to them).

Clean and very well managed building. Guards were very helpful and aware of everything! Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very spacious and clean!!! So glad we rented this one. We've stayed in several other buildings but will stay here every year from now on if possible!! The view is amazing!! Spacious balcony, bed was comfortable, nice owners, well stocked kitchen, even had beach toys and chairs. This condo has everything!! It was very clean, which I was worried about because our 2 yr old touches everything. The pool was nice and cool for our toddler as well. The security is excellent here too. Very helpful and aware of everything going on. I can't say enough about how wonderful this unit is!!! We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to next year!!! Thanks!

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My midwestern family of 4 had a wonderful stay at this condo! After narrowing it down to about 20 condos that fit our needs, we settled on this one mainly due to the glowing reviews. This condo had everything we needed to be comfortable for a week - 2 bedrooms, separate beds in the spare, 2 full bathrooms, awesome view of the beach from the balcony, laundry in the unit, very comfortable king size bed in the master, tv and dvd/blu ray players in both bedrooms and family room, fully stocked kitchen including a keurig coffee maker, etc.....The only hiccup we had was the parking pass was missing when we got there. However, Jason had it delivered to us within a couple hours of us arriving, so no issue there. We will definitely stay in this unit in the future - highly recommend!

We stayed in this unit for a week in July. It is a beautiful unit with everything you need to enjoy some down time. It's centrally located and close to eating and shopping. We never have an issue parking and the property is very well maintained. We love renting from the Willis', they have been great to work with. We will definitely be back next year!!!

Great condo, perfect beach!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both 504 and 503 for my family of 4, parents, sister, and brother in law. It was the perfect set up. The condos were clean and the location was fantastic. Because the complex is smaller than most, there wasn't a huge crowd on the beach and we were able to get a great spot on the beach everyday. Jason is easy to work with and very responsive. We will definitely be back!
