Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Come to Gulf Shores and stay in our beautiful condo, tastefully decorated, bright and cheerful with beach decor. Enjoy the benefits of renting from the owner of this condo, not a rental agency. We take pride in our condo and want you to enjoy you vacation. One of the cleanest condos you will stay in. I RESPOND TO PHONE CALLS, TEXT MESSAGES, EMAILS VERY QUICKLY. NO WAITING DAYS FOR A RESPONSE LIKE HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE WITH VRBO. I enjoy owning and renting our condo. My wife and I want you to have a enjoyable, hassle free vacation. We try to make this rental experience as simple as possible.

Tropic Isles is great due to its location and size. It is very close (one of the closest) to town so you can walk to nearly everything, no need to get in your car everytime you want to go somewhere. Walk to The Hangout, souvenir stores or Scoops Ice Cream Shop. Also, the building only has 40 units so less people to share the pool and beach with! The building is clean and up to date.

You will notice how clean and well maintained our condo is. Enjoy the amazing gulf view from both the living area and the kitchen as well. Our condo sits directly on the gulf and beach. Sit on the spacious balcony while sipping your coffee in the morning or your favorite beverage in the evening. Look down on the pool directly below the balcony. Also a great place to play games with the family. Large window and sliding door shows gulf from living area, dining area, and kitchen. We regularly see dolphins while eating breakfast. Our condo is very clean, smoke free and pet free. Located on the fifth floor.

.

You are welcome to email, call or text with ANY questions you may have. However, for easier record keeping, please email me for price quotes or when you are ready to reserve specific dates. Most of the time I request 6 nights minimum but depending on when it is I will allow less. Please do not click on the request reservation button or book it now button before confirming with me if time frame is less than 6 days. Also, in the quotes you may see a "service fee". That is a charge that VRBO has added that goes directly to them. It is not my fee and I do not receive any of it. I just like to make that clear. I like to be very transparent in everything, no hidden fees or expenses. I enjoy renting our condo and I want to make the whole process easy and enjoyable.

Our condo features a master bedroom with king size bed and full bathroom. There are bunks in the hallway, which our kids think are super fun. There is also a second bathroom (which many condos do not have) located near the bunk beds. A pocket door can be utilized at night if your kids go to bed before you so you can have some privacy while out on the balcony or watching tv in living area. The sofa also converts to a bed to sleep 6 comfortably in our condo. Our condo also has the convenience of a washer and drier inside so no going down the stairs or elevator to do laundry. There are flat screen televisions in the living room and in the bedroom.

You can take the elevator or stairs down to the gulfside HEATED pool, which also has a poolside restroom. Or enjoy the view of the gulf while grilling your dinner, while your kids play in the pool.

Reserve this beautiful condo now and enjoy the perfect vacation!

About Joe Langejans

My wife and I have been married since 2003. We have 3 wonderful boys who, at this time, are 7,8 and 9.

Joe Langejans purchased this condo in 2012

Why Joe Langejans chose Alabama Gulf Coast

My family has been coming to Gulf Shores since 1989 and have fallen in love with it. We love the family atmosphere and feel it is the perfect vacation spot for us. We know you will as well. And Tropic Isles is the perfect condo in Gulf Shores, with the breathtaking views of the gulf and pool and the very short walk to town. We love not having to get in our car to go for supper or ice cream. The building is a cement structure so there is little to no noise from the street and other guests.

What makes this condo unique

Tropic Isles only has 40 units so the pool and beach our not so crowded. We love the view from the balcony and living room. However, we love that we also can enjoy the view from the kitchen while making breakfast, lunch or supper. It is very family friendly.

Fair

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed being right on the beach, but the room was not as nice as I expected. The room could have been cleaner, the chair was in rough shape, the sliding door was to hard for me and the kids to use. My husband had to do it for us. The pain was peeling on the cabinets in the guest bath. I just expected more. Our friends all had very nice rooms.

Enjoyed our stay on the beach!

  • 3 of 5

Pros - Location was great for being able to walk to restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. The view was fantastic looking right out over the Gulf from the Living room and covered porch. We were able to get into the unit early and had no problems with access to the condominium. The Kitchen was pretty well stocked except it would have been nice to have measuring cups and spoons. The King size bed was very comfortable. Since there were just 2 of us we didn't use the hallway bunks. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a big convenience. All of the appliances we tried were in working order.

Cons - Whoever maintains the condominium grounds did not do a great job. The pool appeared dirty and several times during our stay we witnessed cigarette butts and other debris in the pool. The inside of the condominium might have been clean, but the unit appeared a bit dated and worn. As an example the vinyl on the recliner is pealing and there is no bounce back on the chair cushions on the patio furniture. Overall impression is that the interior could use a good facelift. The unit is probably very popular (and for good reasons) but it could be so much better.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything you need and then some. Quiet and very family friendly atmosphere. We had one very small hiccup with parking but the owner responded to my message within minutes and took care of it. I would highly recommend this location.

Just what I expected.....

  • 5 of 5

The unit was well supplied with everything needed for 5 occupants. The view was fabulous and made it sooo enjoyable. The keypad on the door was great and an added bonus. My only suggestion is that the sliding glass door is sooooo difficult to slide and needs to be cleaned and oiled. The wifi was subpar but did not interfere with our fun on the beach. I would definitely rent it again.

HAD A GREAT TIME!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for my husband and our 3 children. My mom stayed on the sofa bed. Perfect spot on the beach and walking distant to everything. Would stay here again. Liked that is was a small complex on the beach.

Super Nice Condo

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one night here as the end of our family vacation. The condo was very clean and bright. Located directly on the beach, beautiful views. Owner was super easy to coordinate with, even got to check in early. Would definitely recommend.
