Paradise Isle is one of the older resorts in Gulf Shores and definitely has its quirks. You can feel a bit of shaking when you're lying in bed and someone goes up or down the stairs, and the units are a bit weathered under the brightly colored paint. If you're looking for a "happening" place, this is not it. Even though it's within walking distance of many things you will want to do in Gulf Shores, it feels more like you're away from it all. When you step out of your rental you aren't in some nondescript hallway, you're out in the sun and the salt air and the pool is right there. If you feel like grilling some burgers there's a grill or two within 50 feet (bring your own charcoal). If you want to keep an eye on the kids in the pool, you can set up a folding chair outside your doorway and read a book or surf the internet on your laptop. The units surround the pool, which creates a nice little world where you can easily forget the high rise condos lining the beach. There are free washers and dryers if you have to do laundry (bring your own detergent), and if your key is sticking in your lock the office staff will be right there with a can of WD-40 to get things working smoothly again. If you don't mind squeezing in and out, it's nice to have the option of parking your car in the shade under your unit. Otherwise, there are plenty of regular parking lot spaces. Public beach access, complete with a bath house, is literally across the street, with only a short wait for a walk signal to cross. My family has stayed here several times, and we absolutely love it. There really isn't another place like it in Gulf Shores.
