About Barb Arne

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

Why Barb Arne chose Alabama Gulf Coast

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. Our condo has been renovated and redecorated recently.

What makes this condo unique

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 easy to walk to beach attractions, restaruants and shops.

We had a fabulous time

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival we were so thrilled to find a very clean condo with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. We were so close to the beach and loved having coffee on the balcony. We walked the beach, picked up shells, ate at a lot of very good restaurants and most of all relaxed. Thank you.

Very nice. Clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival, we found the condo to exactly as advertised. It was clean and comfortable. The decor was bright and cheery. Although we only needed a two bedroom two bath condo, we booked this one because it was a great deal less expensive than most of the two bedroom two bath condos. We're glad we did. We had a great visit and Barbara was very nice and pleasant to work with.
