Windward Pointe condo description

We love the floor plan of our condominium because when you are in one room you are unaware of people in the other rooms. It's very spacious and feels bigger than it really is. Large closets in each bedroom and storage in the laundry area provide a place to store everything. The balcony is such a bonus. It's as big as two rooms. Many of our guests like to sleep out there! It's safe for toddlers and protected from most bad weather. It is accessed from the living room and master bedroom. In the winter we like to watch the sun rise without getting out of bed!

We think the new pavers around our outdoor pool are a work of art. There are seven circles in the pattern. Can you find them? We like to eat dinner by the light of our balcony palm tree and watch the lights from shrimp boats. We're on the ninth floor and have a great view of beach, pool activities, and wildlife. The heated indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room are especially nice during the cooler months when the beach or outdoor pool may be too cool. Exercise equipment and tennis court are new.

It's nice to be able to walk to the nearby amusement park, nearby restaurants, and live music. Most young adults want to check out the infamous Flora-Bama Lounge. It's just down the road at the Florida border. Our favorite restaurants are within a 15 minute drive. Free local newspapers, booklets, and the Gulf Coast Convention and Visitors Center will keep you aware of events you will not want to miss...or just sit on the beach or balcony and watch the world go by.

              Car: Necessary

              Animal lovers, we have two nearby attractions that bring visitors from all over the world. Animal Planet features our very own Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo in a 13 week series. Be sure to visit 'The Little Zoo That Could'. It's about 6 miles from our condominium. Ft. Morgan, about 45 minutes east is famous world-wide as a birding area. Be sure to attend the bird bandings in April and October. You might get to hold and release one of these beauties! Cross Mobile Bay on the ferry to Dauphin Island for more birding and a visit to The Estuarium. Make sure you leave time to explore Civil War Ft.Morgan and its museum.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: We are 'space people'. Stan worked with Dr. Wernher von Braun and the German Rocket Team. We entertained Skylab astronauts in our home.

              Why the Owner Chose Windward Pointe:
              We used to take our children on a yearly beach trip to Florida before we disovered the Alabama Coast. Orange Beach is the perfect vacation place for the three generations of our family. Many of our renters come back yearly and consider our condo their vacation home!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Our condo is very 'age friendly'. The elderly or handicapped can see an ever-changing panarama from our 12'x24' balcony. Toddlers or crawlers are safe because of the close spacing of the railings. There are lots of near-by attractions for children and teens and a very active music scene. It's and easy drive to attractions is Pensacola and Mobile. Snowbirds sometimes take trips to New Orleans. It's really convenient having our Service Manager right at the entrance to to property.
