About Connie Smith

We are original owners of this condo. It is our home away from home. We live in Indiana so it is a bit of a trip to the beach. Someday maybe we will be able to stay longer than a week at a time. Treat the condo gently and with respect. We like keeping it a special retreat for everyone.

Thanks, The Smiths

Why Connie Smith chose Gulf Shores

Location, Location! Island Royale has everything to offer in a beach front condo. It is within walking distance to restaurants and yet does not feel overcrowded. The building is always well maintained with continued updates.

What makes this condo unique

The views of the ocean from the balcony are truly mesmerizing. I could sit there all day! It is close to outlet shopping and outdoor activities whether state park related or water related.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This place is awesome!!!!! The condo was even better than the description. It's in a great location and proximity to everything. When we arrived the A/C was not cooling. The owners immediately acted and a repairman arrived within a few hours. I would recommend this condo to everyone. This is a place my family and friends will be visiting for many years.

It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Island Royale! The condo was perfect for me and my family. We were traveling with a 5 y/o and it was very kid friendly. Our condo was very clean, spacious, and included everything we needed for a great vacation! We were within walking distance of Bahama Bob's and Bills on the beach. Will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

Sidenote: while we were there the parasailing and banana boat rides were set up just to the right of the condo.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this condo. It is beautifully decorated and most appliances were up to date. It is in a great location for the beach or for shopping. The only down side I can say is the stove is out of date. But that's ok because I don't really cook on vacation. It was a wonderful week and I will definitely be looking to rent again.
