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

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.

TOTALLY AWESOME

  • 5 of 5
This was the first condo rental experience for me and my family (mom, dad and 3 adult daughters). I can only say that our experience was over the top. From beachcombing to watching the pelicans and dolphins and all this outside our back door. The condo was just as it was listed, very light and accommodating. I couldn't get over how nicely decorated the rooms were, very nice! The unit was very clean, comfortable and well maintained. Barb, the owner, was so helpful, it being my first time renting, she was reassuring to me and offered additional things to visit in the area. She was prompt to answer all my questions. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone. In fact, we were visiting family in the area and when the family came over to look at the unit, they were very impressed with it. The zoo is a good attraction for young children. I didn't have young children but my nephew took his daughter and they were impressed with it. Lots of restaurants to enjoy, yummmy! Got up close to a pelican at the pier just within walking distance to the condo. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay, what a treasure. Thank you for opening up your place and sharing it with strangers. My family made memories that we'll be talking about for a very long time. I hope that we're able to come back some time and visit again. Hope you have a Happy New Year!!
