About Vicki

As a native Californian, I spent my childhood growing up in Manhattan Beach, Ca. A new job opportunity brought me to Tennessee in 1987 after college. Looking for the nearest beach, a co-worker suggested Gulf Shores. In the Spring of 1988, I came to Gulf Shores for the first time and I was stunned by its natural beauty, white sandy beaches, blue-green waters, and peaceful serenity. I have vacationed in Gulf Shores every year since 1988.

Vicki purchased this condo in 2013

Why Vicki chose Gulf Shores

It's all about the balcony and the view. I believe that Island Royale condos have best balconies, especially the corner units on the east side of the building. There are no buildings next to Island Royale on the east side, so the views are unobstructed and breathtaking. The east corner balconies do not get the hot afternoon sun in the summer. And, since the building is right on the sand, the sound of the waves on the beach make the balcony my favorite part of the condo. I also like the layout of the penthouse corner units in Island Royale. The floorplan offers the option for 3 private master suites, so, you have the flexibility of spending time together in the living room or balcony, but everyone can have their own space too. Island Royale is a smaller building on a less densely built stretch of beach in Gulf Shores so the beach is never crowded, even on the most popular holidays.

GREAT FAMILY VACATON!!

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing condo! The condo was beautifully set up and very comfortable. It was in a great location... Close to shops, restaurants, bars, etc.! It was also very convenient having a code to enter the condo and not having to worry about a key!! The only negative thing we experienced would have to be the AC. It did not get very cold.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Island Royale. The condo was clean and updated. There were 3 couples in our party and we all had plenty of room, the view was gorgeous, and the beds were super comfortable. The beach was a elevator ride away, you could walk straight out on to the beach from the bottom level.

Super condo in a perfect location! This place is just as great as the photos... the whole family agreed. The east corner balcony had shade when we needed it. Fully stocked awesome kitchen...Condo was not far from Mini golf, Rouse's grocery store, parasailing, paddle board rental, Nolan's fine dining. etc. etc. The pure clean water and white sand was fun for the kids all day. Beach umbrella and padded chair rentals saved us from lugging large items from home. Everyone was crazy about the extra option of either of two hot tubs or the pool. We had our whole family here -ages 66 to 4. Thanks Vicki and Scott for sharing this gorgeous condo with us!!!

We enjoyed out stay in the best condo on the beach. Beautiful balcony and the floorplan was very spacious. Everyone had their own room and bath. Everything was clean and spotless. Did I say how much we loved the balcony?!!!!! We will be back again next year.

Disappointed

  • 1 of 5
We've traveled to Gulf Shores before and decided to try to stay somewhere different this time. We showed up at the condo on the confirmed day at the time of checkin and walked into a complete mess of a house. We came to the conclusion that the cleaning service had not been there yet, even though we were not early. Needless to say, after traveling for the last 12 hours, I was not happy. I spent the next half hour trying to contact the condo owner. Once I was able to speak with her she sent over the cleaning crew as we headed out to dinner. When we came back later that evening, the condo was very clean and I was happy with the job they had done. The next morning we woke up early to walk the beach and as we walked out of our condo, we could smell marijuana coming from the condo next door. We spent the rest of our vacation having to smell that every morning. I am disappointed in the property, as I expected so much more for the price. The condo itself wasn't all that bad, however we will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Yes, the cleaning crew had the wrong arrival date on their calendar, but upon your call, we dispatched 3 people to the unit immediately and it was cleaned within an hour of your call. We apologize for that, but you indicated that the unit was clean to your satisfaction. As for the issue next door, one call and we could have remedied that situation very quickly with calls to building mgt and the owner of that unit. You did not notify us of an issue next door. We can't fix anything if we are not made aware. As for "The unit itself was not that bad", the pictures speak for themselves, we purchased that unit last year for $400K and spend $30K to redecorate and update the entire interior. "Not that bad" is inaccurate. As a matter of fact, after checking in and calling to arrange the cleaning, we never heard from you again. As a courtesy to you, we mailed you a 100% refund on 6-30-14.

Great condo on the beach at Gulf Shores

  • 5 of 5
The condo was great...location was perfect, interior was beautiful, patio was awesome. The listing was as described and photos represented the condo accurately. The property was in excellent condition. We would recommend this property to others. We would recommend dinner at The Gulf or Cosmos. We enjoyed the after dark crabbing on the beach. We had a wonderful vacation!
