About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the heart of Gulf Shores, this absolutely amazing, tastefully-decorated condominium is within walking distance to dozens of restaurants and shops. Tanger Outlets and Supercenter Walmart are just minutes away. We stay in this non-smoking condominium often, so you will find it well-taken care of and completely equipped with all the amenities.

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!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
