Condo/Apartment
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the 5th floor of a low density complex that only has 6 floors, so the view is grand from our balcony! This complex is one of Gulf Shores’ most popular rental complexes, with affordable rates, convenience of walking to restaurants/shopping and relaxing views. The living room has a large window showing a stunning view of the sugar sand beach and sparkling blue waves below. From the balcony you will enjoy watching the activities on the beach, enjoying the red sunset or taking a nap listening to the methodical rolling of waves against the shore. The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. The new flat screen tv has been wall mounted for easy viewing from bed. This tv has a built-in DVD player as well as cable.

It has a queen bed and a flat screen tv with cable The living room has a flat screen tv with cable and an xbox 360 for gaming or playing dvds (we do not provide video games or dvd’s). It has built in WIFI, so connecting to XBOX live with YOUR OWN ACCOUNT is a snap!. It also has a sleeper sofa. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could want, the dining area has seating for four. The sparkling pool is located on the north side of the complex, which keeps sand and debris from blowing into it constantly. It has plenty of seating for laying out in the sun or watching the kids swim. Please NOTE: Standard security deposit is $200. Also, I answer inquiries once each day, usually after 9 pm central time. I have a full time job and therefore generally cannot answer inquiries during the day. Thank you for understanding. We are sometimes asked if we give military discounts. We do not give military discounts, however, we donate 8 full weeks per year to Operation Reconnect. Operation Reconnect is a Non-Profit organization that provides complimentary vacations to combat veterans and their families. The Island Shores complex is a low density, family oriented facility with only 59 units in a building with 6 floors. It is located in the heart of Gulf Shores, with shopping, Alabama State Fishing Pier, restaurants, fresh seafood markets and much more all within walking distance of the unit. The Sea and Suds is a wonderful restaurant on the beach within a stone’s throw of our complex. No smoking and no pets inside any of the units at Island Shores! There is a drink vending machine, a coin operated laundry and of course an elevator and luggage carts for your convenience.... More

About the neighborhood
The Complex is within a short drive of several grocery stores (including a Wal -Mart Supercenter), pharmacies, package stores, movie rentals, spas, deep sea fishing charters, movie theaters, golf courses, water parks, mini golf, the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, Gulf Shores State Park, the Alabama Birding Trail and Bon Secour Wildlife Refuge. There is a great local cheesemaker near the condo in Elberta Alabama, about 20 minutes away. Sweet Home Farms has a small herd of Guernsey milk cows that they milk to produce a variety of high quality cheeses. They produce cheeses ranging from incredibly smooth to wonderfully sharp! The blue cheese is unbelievable! They are open friday and saturday only from 10 am til 5 pm.
Getting around
History buffs can ride out to Fort Morgan State Park, built in 1834 and heavily used during the civil war. For those that want to visit her sister fort across Mobile Bay, Fort Gaines, they can take the interesting ride on the car ferry over to Dauphin Island! Makes a great day trip! For those that have never experienced the night life on the beach, you are in for a wonderful time. There are many night clubs in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. The Pink Pony and The Hangout are a half mile from our condo. Live Bait is a popular spot in Orange Beach. All have live music most of the time. One of the best places to experience the Gulf Coast nightlife and meet people ages 18 to 80 is the world famous roadhouse, the Florabama Lounge.
