ISLAND SHORES, 3 BED/3BATH, BEACHFRONT, GROUND FLOOR-BEST LOCATION

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

Ground floor convenience - no steps or elevators, close to pool and beach access

Island Shores offers a great location on the beautiful white sandy beach which is is DIRECTLY on the Gulf. This low density complex, (only 59 condos) means the beaches are less crowded than the larger complexes. This location offers gulf views and is conveniently located within WALKING distance to the State Park Pier and beachfront restaurants including Sea and Suds, Pink Pony and the Hangout. Island Shores is approximately 1/2 mile east from Gulf Shores Public Beach where Highway 59 ends and approximately 1/2 mile from the State Fishing Pier.

This is an end corner unit 3 bedroom 3 bath condo right on the scenic east beach with many windows. Island Shores is a low density complex which means there are less people on the beach.

There is also a private pool on this property near our condo at Island Shores.

Free WIFI.

Our family are original owners of this beachfront condo. We have enjoyed many vacations in Gulf Shores and we are always excited to see the new attractions to visit beyond the beach. Gulf Shores is a great place to build family memories. We always wish we could spend more time there.

Barb Arne purchased this condo in 1981

We love the location of Island Shores directly on the beach with great views. We love to walk the beach as this condo is located between the State Park Pier and the Gulf Shores Public Beach with many great restaurants. Walking to destinations is very convenient.

The ground floor access and beach view attracted our family to buy this condo before the building was built, no stairs or elevators. This is an end unit with 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms, with easy beach and pool access.

Also very close to beach attractions, restaruants and shops

Wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5
This trip is the first time we've rented through VRBO and I was nervous about the process. Turns out there was no need for nerves. Barb was great to work with. She answered all our questions promptly, even texting on our arrival date telling us to contact her if we had any problems. The condo was clean, spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect. Being on the ground floor was an extra bonus when it came to loading and unloading. Thank you Barb for sharing your vacation home. I highly recommend this condo. As Arnold said, "I'll be back."

Loves the Beach

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. If I have any complaints it would be to much extra furniture sitting around taking up space. The condo was clean and in a great location. We had no problems with the property at all. I would rent it again.

Relaxing Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at the condo. The first level made it very convenient to load and unload the car, as well as an easy trip back from the beach. We had 3 couples and the room situation worked perfectly for us. Plenty of plates, cups and pots and pans to use in the kitchen. Bring beach towels, and some extra bath towels if you don't prefer to use the same ones.

Weekend Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay this past weekend. The place was clean, spacious and very accommodating. Loved that the beach was just a few feet away from the condo and the pool was right outside the door. There were several eating places within walking distance and shopping just a few minutes away. I will be recommending this place to several of my friends and will defiantly stay there again.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5
There were 8 in our group of family and friends. There was plenty of room for us all, the place was very nice and has everything you could want! We had a few cold days and the town seemed to completely shut down, that was the only drawback of our trip. But the condo was great and loved the location!!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great time. I have never seen snow on the beach and I would have enjoyed seeing that. They sure are not used to winter weather in Gulf Shores. I hope when you return the weather will be much warmer.
