About Brookelynn Garrett

I own and manage rental property in my own hometown, and in Gulf Shores besides this condo. My wife, three daughters, and I have always enjoyed warm weather in Alabama; now that I am finally settling down, my wife and I have decided to buy a condo. This is our home away from home! We love relaxing and enjoying the sun!

Brookelynn Garrett purchased this condo in 2012

Why Brookelynn Garrett chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We love the southern Alabama beaches, and because we have friends living within thirty miles of Gulf Shores, we decided to buy beachfront property. We try to come down to Gulf Shores every chance we get!

What makes this condo unique

My wife is an avid shopper and she enjoys the two shopping outlets located in Gulf Shores, plus the several surf shops in Gulf Shores too. My three daughters and their friends enjoy going to the festivals held annually year around, going to The Hangout less than one mile from our condo, and go-kart racing in Gulf Shores! We all go out to eat at our favorite restaurant throughout the week! There are over seventy-five restaurants within ten miles of our condo. Our favorite restaurants are the Shrimp Basket, Lambert's, LuLu's, the Fish River Grill, and The Rib Shak BBQ.

Location

Outlet mall shopping, many surf shops, restaurants, and hangouts are less than one mile away from island shores!!!

Wonderful trip in a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit in this condo, Everything was clean upon arrival and stocked with essentials. It has a beautiful view. We watched the dolphins every morning. Reviews had said no washer/dryer in condo. Was not really looking forward to using a laundry but thought at least it was on site. Went to condo and found an unexpected surprise. A washer and dryer in condo. Awesome! Any questions or concerns were promptly answered by owners. Had a great stay at this beautiful condo. And am looking forward to returning. Thank you Jimmy and Brooklynn for all your help and the loan of your condo. God bless you all.

Right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This is not a large condo, but it has everything you need--2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It has a fully equiped kitchen with a dishwasher. There is also a washer/dryer combo IN the unit. We did not know this until we arrived and were pleasantly surprised. It will sleep six, but I recommend just four--unless you don't mind togetherness. We had 4 adults and 2 children. So it got a bit cramped at times, but it was not really a problem as we were all family. Water pressure is good and the hot water heater kept up with our use. Also, not a lot of tchotchkes--which is great because we had a two year old. Outdoor furniture rather old, but it was super comfortable. It is not fancy, but that made it all the better for us because we didn't have to worry about the kids messing things up. It is on the second floor and you CAN see and hear the ocean easily. Also, the lower unit was great for the kids--we didn't have to rely on the elevator. It is not a long walk to the ocean either--actually very close. The pool is close by, but not so close that it disturbs you. Quiet at night when we were there--mid summer.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Overall the condo is very nice. Walking to the beach was very close and the property is well kept. We loved being able to walk to restaurants and shopping. While there we drove to Mobile to tour the USS Alabama Battleship and the USS Drum Submarine. Another day we drove to Pensacola to see the Blue Angels practice and tour the Naval Museum. This area definitely has something for everyone.

Good spot at Island Shores

  • 5 of 5

Island Shores complex has been our go to for a few years due to its location.

It is right on a nice beach (pool is on parking lot side) and is within walking distance to Hangout and other restaurants. The condo was very adequate and clean when we arrived. Being on the 2nd floor is perfect as sometimes this places elevator can get quite busy. Would suggest this condo for people looking at a place to stay near here.
