Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit is on the 5th floor of a low density complex (only 59 units). The beach view is grand from our balcony… right in front of you as you walk out the door!
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 drinking coffee and watching the activities on the beach, the red sunset or taking a nap listening to the methodical rolling of waves against the shore...

The space
Please note: The beaches are open, but please practice social distancing! We want to let everyone know our cleaning company is taking all necessary steps to ensure your stay is safe and enjoyable. All surfaces are treated with disinfectant before your arrival, so don't worry and come back to the beach! The local businesses are open and want you to come!

The master bedroom has a king size bed and a private bath. There is a large flat screen TV with cable and DVD player (we do not provide dvd's). The second bedroom has a beautiful view of the beach through the double windows! It also has a queen sized bed and a flat screen TV with cable. The living room has a large flat screen TV with cable and an Xbox 360 for the kids enjoyment! The XBOX 360 will allow game play and also plays 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! The living room has a queen 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. The Island Shores complex is a low density, family oriented facility with only 59 units in a building with 6 floors. No smoking and no pets inside any of the units at Island Shores! There is a drink vending machine, a coin operated laundry (which also accepts credit cards) and of course an elevator and luggage carts for your convenience.
Island Shores is only an hour away from Mobile Alabama, 30 minutes from Pensacola Florida, and 10 minutes from Foley, Alabama. Located directly on the beach at 421 East Beach Blvd, ½ half mile east of where 59 ends at the public beach in Gulf Shores. From I-10, take highway 59 to Gulf Shores and take a left on East Beach Blvd, then go ½ mile and Island Shores is on the right. From the Foley Beach Express, after going through the toll bridge keep going straight until you dead end into Canal Road, then take a right and follow it to 59 and take another left, then when 59 dead ends at the beach take another left and go ½ mile and Island Shores is on your left.

We have a total of 6 condos available in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area with a total of 5 of the units being in the same "Island Shores" complex as this one.

Where you’ll be

Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States

Our unit 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. 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. 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. Located right on the Alabama/Florida line, the Florabama has beach access, great food and some of the best live music around, but don’t take the kids past 6 pm… unless they are at least 18 years old!
