Island Shores is an excellent choice for those looking for affordable beachside property along the Gulf shores. The complex features two and three-bedroom units across six stories and was built during the early 1980s construction boom. The two-bedroom units are available in two sizes, 700 square feet or 738 square feet, and include two full bathrooms, while the three-bedroom units are around 1100 square feet with three bathrooms. The units offer private balconies that open out to the pristine beaches and are accessible from the living room and master bedroom. The kitchens are equipped with modern features, and the complex offers wifi throughout.
Laundry facilities are available on the first floor with coin-operated machines, and some units feature their own washer/dryer hook-ups. The building also features an elevator for easy access. The outdoor pool is located in front of the building and includes a lounging area, while a boardwalk leads to the spacious beach area. The parking lot is landscaped and can accommodate a maximum of two cars per unit. However, parking passes cost $19 per day, and restrictions may apply during busy times such as local festivals.
Island Shores is situated about half a mile from the intersection of State Highway 59, with several dining and shopping options within easy walking distance. To the east of Island Shores are the Island Sunrise condominiums, while Boardwalk Condominiums are located to the west. A short walk on the beach to the east leads to Sea-n-Suds, and the popular Hangout is just a short distance down the road to the west.
