Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

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. 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. 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.

What a great week!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tropic Isles #504 for the first week of August. We had a lot of pop up storms but that helped cool things off and provide some shade so it worked out.

The Beach: White beautiful sand with plenty of shells. You can rent chairs or bring your own. Easy walk from the condo. The tide was different every day and provided some different ways to play (big waves, big sand shelf, calm days). We had some jellyfish....just some bad luck. Yes, there were dophins!

The pool: The pool was great and a good temperature. Everyday someone cleaned the pool area and bathroom which was awesome. We mostly used the pool as a quick break from the beach...the pool was in the shade the latter half of the day, I believe.

The condo: Elevators were a decent speed and there were carts for loading and unloading. Parking was never a problem. Keyless entry provided by Joe was a HUGE help. Condo was clean and had a bit of paper products and soap that got us off to a pretty good start. Kitchen has most of what we needed for easy meal prep and snack time. Loved the pantry. Washer/dryer stackable and right across from bunks so plan accordingly. Patio furniture comfortable...we sat out every night. Only complaint would be the hotel next to Tropic Isles...the pool seemed to have a loud group of kids every night we were there which kind of wrecked the nightcap on the balcony. Maybe just bad luck for us. Bunk beds worked great for my kids. Master bed sooooo comfortable....we slept great. One piece of advice for those travelling with children or those who like wine :)...bring some plastic glasses and dinnerware and wine glasses to your liking. Keeps you a little more sane when eating on the balcony and over tile floor. Oh, and thank you for having the Keurig!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe: Communication was timely and effective. All worked out well!

We hope all have as great a stay as we did. We can't wait to go back some day!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to stay in this condo. As last year, the condo was ready when we arrived ( before 3:00 P.M.). Everything was very clean. The only problem was the refrigerator. It was very smelly! Evidently someone must have put something smelly in or something bad. We couldn't use the refrigerator for food or ice at all. Too bad others can't take better care. The fire alarm went off. For a person with hearing lose like me you cannot hear the alarm. It needs to be louder. It's a great place to stay. Very good location to get in and out of. Hope to come again soon.

Condo was was just as represented in the photos and description. Very clean and well stocked kitchen (pots, pans, appliances), I would recommend a couple more gallon pitchers...there is only one (and its only a 1/2 gallon) and we wanted to make tea and lemonade. I don't think we have ever stayed at a condo where the walk to the beach was so short. We would highly recommend and would stay here again. Joe was great to work with.

Perfect location and wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was very clean, cute and had just about anything we needed!!! The location was perfect. We walked to many of our adventurers. Sat on the back deck and watched the beach goers. When we did take our vehicle there was never a problem finding a parking spot when we got back! We really enjoyed staying here!! Communication was great from the owners!! We hope to one day stay again!
