The master bedroom has a sliding door facing the beach, so you can enjoy waking up to the sounds of crashing waves. Savor your morning coffee on a roomy, 200-square-foot private balcony. Unit features 9' ceilings and crown molding throughout. Granite countertops in fully-equipped kitchen where original overhead fluorescent lights have been removed and replaced.

If relaxation is what you are looking for, this condo is the perfect place. Located directly on the beach with spectacular views from an extremely large balcony. You will not find a more beautiful beach to relax and catch some sun!

If you are into adventure you will find jet skis, parasailing, sailboats, fishing and more. Island Royale is equipped with an indoor/outdoor heated pool, sauna, steam room and fitness center. Enjoy outdoor grilling at Island Royale's own private picnic area. Family fun is minutes away with water parks, miniature golf and amusement parks all within a few miles.

There is no need to over-pack on this trip as our condo has its own laundry room with washer and dryer. We have equipped this unit to meet our needs, so you will find everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.

This unit is IDEAL for year-round rentals. SNOWBIRDS are welcome! Being from Ontario, Canada, we can appreciate having a great option like Island Royale from November to February!

About The Owner

That's us, enjoying an evening walk on the beach in front of Island Royale. (From right: Sheryl, Brody and Randy) We are very proud to be part of the Gulf Shores family.

We would be honored to have you stay in our recently-decorated condo, so that you may also enjoy a wonderful Gulf Coast experience.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Alabama

We have been vacationing in Gulf Shores for 26 years. When an opportunity came up to buy a unit in Island Royale, we were thrilled. The building suits our family perfectly with its location, amenities and nearby attractions.

What makes this condo unique

We love that we can be on the beach or in the pool within a minute. We've travelled to Florida, California and much of North America and we've found that the quality of the sand on Gulf Shores' beaches is the best we have ever experienced.

Cleaning and updating.

  • 4 of 5

Had a WONDERFUL time. Love the condo (2nd time there), but the maid should do a better job of cleaning. Swept up dirt in the master bathroom and hairs on the floor. There needs to be a little updating, i.e., carpeting. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Judy. I've contacted our rental agency to bring the cleaning issue to their attention. Thank you for letting us know. As for the carpet, ironically enough, I've had my eye on a new carpet that would suit the decor perfectly :) Thank you for your return visits. We appreciate it.

Clean, comfortable and family friendly

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation staying here. The condo is clean, very comfortable and nicely decorated. It's pleasing to the eye (not pastel colored and wicker furniture like some beach places). Plenty of space for a family of four. Located close to local restaurants but the beach is not over crowded. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this 9th floor condo. It is very tastefully decorated and beautiful. We ate on the balcony for every meal and enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean. When we return to Gulf Shores we would definitely stay here again. Both the owner and the booking company are fantastic and willing to answer questions. We were very comfortable here and loved our experience at the Gulf and in Island Royale 905!

So beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in until the last second we left, we absolutely were in love with this condo! The decor was nice, the beds and furniture throughout the condo was perfect! We would get up at five every morning to watch the dolphins go by on the huge balcony. Spending the days on the white sand beach everyday was a must! The water is so blue and beautiful in gulf shores! This condo is also located in the most perfect spot! Looking to the east and west you can see busier places, But in front of this condo there is not many people which made it perfect for our family of five to enjoy the beach. We look forward to going back to Gulf Shores and we will only go to this condo and unit! Take my word you will not be disappointed! We would also recommend going to The Hangout if you have small children for the pirates and princesses breakfast, our kids loved this with the treasure hunt, and being able to have a family style breakfast was great! We also loved going to have dinner at Sea-N-Suds, it was not expensive and was quite tasty!
