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!

Our goal is for you to enjoy your stay so much that you will want to make Island Royale #905 your vacation home too!

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.

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!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Recently stay at this condo and it was by far the best for my family. This was our third trip to Gulf shores. First time we stayed at a condo 5 minutes from the beach, second was a ocean front house with extended family, this time just myself, wife, 9 yo, and 22 month old. This condo was exactly what we were looking for and needed. Great location close to the beach and pool was plus for kids to swim. Great décor and amenities. Liked it so much my wife and I are already planning to stay in this same unit again next year.

I recently retired and treated myself to 6 weeks on the Gulf as a retirement present. What a wonderful condo to stay in! Go to sleep and wake up listening to the waves, beautiful balcony, great amenities. We had everything we could have wanted. We also enjoyed the building and actually found a hot tub on the roof! Great view! Our children and grandchildren visited with us and just loved the beach and all that there was to do in the Gulf Shores area. We ate at DeSoto's (our favorite and a MUST for any visitors to Gulf Shores). Walks on the beach, building sandcastles with the grandkids, fishing off the pier, the Naval air museum, The battleship Alabama, so much to do. Absolutely wonderful. And the owner was a gem to work with! We plan to come back! Try it, you'll love it!

This was a very nice, comfortable and clean condo

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Gulf Shore/Orange Beach 8 times. This condo was definitely one of our top 3, if not the best. The condo was very clean; extremely comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Our previous rental 2 years ago was a fiasco - we told the rental agency we would never use them again. A huge part of the success of a vacation centers around your accomdations, needless to say we consider this vacation a huge success! Condo owner-thank you for taking pride in your investment!
