Island Time at The Beachcomber is an amazing Gulf Shores beach getaway location. Alabama beaches have gained in popularity in the recent years. We urge you to come down and see what all the excitement is about. The unit is centrally located off East Beach Blvd right behind The Whaler and the Lighthouse and is within walking distance of The Hangout and other great dining and shopping options.
Island Time has deeded beach access with a regulated cross walk for easy crossing of beach blvd. Island Time features two bedrooms and one bathroom. We strive to provide a nice, well outfitted, and great value beach condo for your stay. Although we do not offer some amenities, such as a pool, we do everything we can to ensure you have a great vacation, romantic getaway, couples’ trip, girls’ trip, or simply a change of scenery.
ISLAND TIME AT THE BEACHCOMBER
We loved Gulf Shores so much we wanted to share this area with others! We love the small town feel and the beautiful sights and attractions in the area. We have watched our kids grow here and seen the happiness on their faces while they have enjoyed the sun, sand, salt water, and all the other attractions.
This is a great centrally located Gulf Shores beach condo. The unit is centrally located on the east side of Beach Blvd. This puts you right in the center of everything. You can easily walk to many restaurants, mini-golf, The Hangout, Sea-N-Suds, Picnic Beach, Mikes, and many other great businesses. The location also allows you to get around a lot of beach traffic, all the while being centrally located to Surf Style, Island Market, Rouses, Walmart, other island stores, etc. The area also features tons of indoor and outdoor activities. Outdoor activities range from low-key pursuits like Waterville (waterpark), mini-golf, bike trails, walking trails, and kayaking, to adrenaline-pumping adventures like ziplining over the dunes, parasailing, jet ski rentals, boat rentals, banana boat rides, dolphin tours, sunset cruises, etc.
We have owned this unit since 2016 and have loved our time in the area and enjoy the beach and The Gulf of Mexico waters. We have strived to make the unit consistently better every time we come down. The unit is a 2-bedroom 1 bathroom. Bedroom 1 has a king-sized mattress and bedroom #2 has 2 queen-sized mattresses. We have placed large screen HD smart TVs in both bedrooms as well as in the living room. The TV and internet services are fiberoptic services provided by Securevision. Island Time internet is faster than what I can get at home!
We have listed many, if not all the amenities below. Island Time is well outfitted from the Beach to the bathroom, to the Kitchen. At the beach, we have a pair of rental chairs and an umbrella for your stay! No lugging of chairs and the hassle of getting the umbrella into the sand. (Note: The chairs are only provided from March-Oct) We have young ones and found that a handheld shower head made bath time much easier.
We have also tried to outfit the condo with everything that we have found that we needed for our short or long stays. The kitchen is very well stocked with pots, pans, baking sheets, pizza pans, cooking and eating utensils, 12 cup coffee pot, Keurig, toaster, blender, air fryer, and much more.
We also try and provide consumables such as coffee (generally Community Coffee), K-cups, coffee filters, salt, pepper, seasonings, olive oil, non-stick spray, etc. We strive to also make available dishwasher pods, laundry detergent, hand soap, dish soap, etc. The cleaning company leaves one roll of paper towels, one roll of toilet paper, and bath soaps for your stay.
Island Time has a great outdoor patio/balcony to compliment a great interior. You can mix a cocktail and enjoy the day or take in the sunset and toast to the paradise that is Island Time in Gulf Shores.
The area has tons of attractions. Wildlife-lovers will be in heaven here, with birdwatching at the Bon Secour National Wildlife Refuge, dolphin-watching cruises, and The Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. Visitors love Gulf State Park for its beaches, trails, and pier. And that’s just the beginning! We loved the history at Fort Morgan and the trail and sights on the Jeff Friend trail. Please reach out to us with any questions. We are here for you to have an amazing vacation.
If you have any questions about the condo, the area, or on what you can do in Gulf Shores, other than soaking in the tranquil sound of the waves and the blissful sea air, please reach out to us. We are more than happy to share with you what we love about Gulf Shores and want to ensure your getaway is everything that you want.

The property is just as described. It is located across the street from the beach, which is a quick 2-minute walk. The addition of rented chairs and an umbrella for the beach was wonderful! We watched dolphins each day while soaking up sun's rays. The owner was great and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed our time at the gulf shores and will be back!

The online pictures of Island Time do not do it justice. It is just as advertised. Newly renovated, tastefully appointed, clean, bright, well-stocked kitchen (thank you very much!), large bedrooms with comfortable mattresses, large tv - yes, very nice!

Everything was as described online. Great location too. Will definitely book again.

We stayed here for my birthday. We loved the place. The unit was very clean when we arrived. The sheets and towels were very nice and the beds are very comfortable. We did not cook much but the unit is very well equipped if you wanted to. All the rooms have large TVs which were great for the movies. The unit seems like it is well insulated as the condo was cool and quiet. We loved the theme and the location. We were able to walk the Hangout, Waffle House, and Sea n Suds. The unit does come with 2 chairs at the beach which made walking out very easy. We'd love to stay again.

The condo is quite nice and in a great area. We loved the beach chairs and all of the amenities in the unit. It seems the owner actually cares and this isn't just a rental. The Island Time vibe is really cool. Were going to come back and spend some more time during the offseason. The owner was super responsive.

This condo is right in the heart of GS. It was 4 blocks from Hangout, easy walking to soo many places. The red light and crosswalk are super nice. The owner had chairs for us. All we had to carry out there was out cooler and purses. The unit had everything we needed and then some. We are already planning another girls trip. Thanks for the stay!

This was a great find. We found this unit and could not have been happier. It is just as shown. The owner is very nice and he does try and ensure that you have everything you need and that you have a great time. The chairs at the beach are an amazing feature. That saved us $40 a day! The owner kept great communication throughout the whole stay. My wife and i will definitely be coming back.
