About Cathleen T. Caszatt

We are a family with 4 children and we've owned the condo for 23 years. We have a love affair with the Gulf. We've seen Gulf Shores transform from a sleepy, small town to a thriving tourist area.

We've been through 3 major hurricanes -- yet we still own and still love the beach.

Our family has created many memories over the years.

Cathleen T. Caszatt purchased this condo in 1987

Why Cathleen T. Caszatt chose Gulf Shores

My husband was active duty Air Force and we were stationed in Guam. We visited the beaches in Hawaii numerous times. When we came back stateside and visited Gulf Shores, we discovered the beach in Gulf Shores is as beautiful as the beaches in Guam and Hawaii. Plus, Gulf Shores is a whole lot closer than Guam or Hawaii.

What makes this condo unique

Island Shores is centrally located on East Hwy. 182 with easy walking to Sea-n-Suds, Hooters, etc.

Wonderful family vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
My family and I rented this property in May ' 09. This condo was a great pick for us. It was nicely decorated and was equipped with everything that we needed. We would definately recommend this place to another family looking for a great place to stay and with easy beach access.

Owner's Response: Dana; Thanks for you kind words. We have owned this condo for 20 years. Our 4 kids have grown up on the beach. The ground level is truly ideal for easy beach access. We hope you will stay again. Cat

Kids love playing in the pool and never have a problem finding a lounge chair to sun while they play...will definitely be our rental choice again next year!! Thanks Cat for sharing your condo with us!!! :)

We keep coming back!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Island Shores for 4 different visits and at this unit 3 times. My kids love it! We have already reserved our spot for next year. We love the easy access the main floor allows. The beach was beautiful, of course, but we enjoyed the pool, too (just the right size). And we couldn't ask for a better person to rent from than Cat. Thanks for everything and can't wait to get back!

Good location but very dated

  • 2 of 5
Location is great, lots of dining options in walking distance. This condo building in general is very dated and could use quite a bit of work. Pool is tiny and in front parking lot. Beds and sofa in this particular unit are uncomfortable. I would bring a mattress topper. I would also suggest as 2nd floor unit - view is not great at ground level.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking time to write a review. The condo is advertised as a low density complex. There are 6 floors for a total of 59 units. The complex was built in the mid 1980's. It's a no "frills" type of complex. All 59 units face the Gulf and you are steps away from the surf.

The pool used to be south side. Hurricane George in 1997 destroyed more than 50% of the pool. Code is such that the pool had to be set back from the shoreline. Hence, today the pool is "tucked away" in the north east side of the building.

The family and I look forward to spending time at the pool after a day at the beach. It's rarely crowded and we always find loungers/chairs available.

Prior guests have raved about the view from the ground level unit. Some may prefer a view from a higher floor, however, you tend to lose the smell and sound of the surf. It's a matter of personal preference.

In addition, the advantages of a ground level unit are no stairs or elevators. Plus, it's easy access loading/unloading luggage from your vehicle. Thanks again. Happy Summer!
