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.

Such fun for EVERYONE!
Such fun for EVERYONE!
I am writing to let you know what a wonderful time we had at your condo. It was bright, cheery, clean and welcoming! Everything you told me about the condo was true. It was well stocked with towels, kitchen supplies and even movies and books. We spent the entire Thanksgiving weekend on the balcony. The weather was frightfully cold but sunny. Even my 80 year old Mother-in-law enjoyed much time outside because the deep balcony blocked the wind. We had such a good time watching dolphins, fishermen and families enjoying the beach. My husband and I walked the beach every morning and gathered shells. One morning we walked up on two Pelicans who had become entangled in fishing line. Help was called and responded in the form of an Orange Beach Police Patrolman. He asked my husband to assist in removing a pile of fishing line and fishing hooks from the two Pelicans as a large crowd of onlookers watched the Pelicans rescue and release. My husband and I are nature/animal lovers, so that two-hour ordeal is a memory we both will always treasure. And I will NEVER pass a piece of fishing line on the beach again without picking it up for proper disposal! We already loved the Windward Point complex before this trip. I cannot say enough good things about Windward Point. It is a smaller complex, but it has every amenity a vacationer could want! Plus the security guards are always visible which at our age is an added bonus. Thank you so much for being helpful. Your rental price was more than reasonable for a three bedroom condo. You handled me with professionalism and friendship and your management company was also very easy to deal with. You can bet I will be in touch again!

Owner response: Thank you for the wonderful review, Pamela! You have a gift for making us feel like we were there with you. We hope the pelicans were unharmed from their ordeal. Thank you for saving them! You captured our "winter warm" balcony perfectly. It's amazing how much solar heat is present when you are out of the wind. We are happy you plan to return. Return renters get a 10% discount on the posted rate. Pat & Stan
Thank you again for renting your condo to us. I said back in 2012 that we would be back in 2013 and we were still very happy with the condo. We had another excellent stay. I highly recommend this Condo to anyone looking for a nice, clean place to stay. Everything is exactly as pictured and this condo is nicely maintained. Thanks again!

Incredible Vacation for 3 Moms and their Children

This is the third time we have stayed in this condo and enjoy it more each time. Thank you Stan and Pat for opening your home to others. This past week could not have been more perfect. The weather was great and the waves were fantastic. Everyone had a blast in the ocean. We(moms) really enjoyed our evenings on the deck. It is so spacious and comfortable.

Excellent Condo, very nice and clean. Looking forward to a future visit. Owners very great to work with. I would recommend highly to anyone. This condo was perfect for any ages...our 4 week old niece spent the entire week with us and my 85 year old grandparents stopped by for a night! All were very comfortable. Thank you for helping make our vacation very enjoyable. We are looking forward to renting again.

Owner response: It makes us very happy that the youngest and oldest members of your family got to enjoy our condo with you Tony! Many of our families come to regard this as THEIR condo...a very nice compliment for us and a memorable family tradition for them. Thank you for the lovely review! Pat & Stan
Thank you, Pat and Stan
Thank you, Pat and Stan
The Pippin's had a family reunion over July 4th vacation time. We came from several cities. This condo was our headquarters and it worked out perfectly. The pelican's really do fly by! We loved the large balcony for both living room and bedroom. We've stayed a lot of places at the beach in the past and some were more expensive, but this was by far the loveliest, most accommodating, and happiest of them all. I loved the indoor pool while the children and grandchildren loved the outdoor pool. The beach is always beautiful. Thank you for sharing this beautiful gift with us and for having baby stuff there.

Owner response: Thank you for the lovely review, Bill and Cynthia! It gives us great pleasure when our friends enjoy our condo as much as we do, and especially if they get to play with their grandchildren there! And thank you for not cancelling your reservation when we didn't know how much damage the oil spill might do. We treasure your friendship. Stan and Pat
Come on Down!
Come on Down!
We were not quite sure what to expect in light of the recent oil spill tragedy but knew that the residents living on the Gulf Coast were getting hammered financially and we wanted to support them in any way we could. What we discovered was an exceptional experience that my children will remember for many years to come! The beaches were beautiful and there was what appeared to be an army of volunteers and workers present to make sure they stayed that way. We detected very little presence of oil. Wildlife, including sea eagles and pelicans are still here.. The view from the balcony out into the Gulf and the sound of the surf was beautiful and relaxing. Coming from the high desert country in Arizona, I had no idea until now that I have two little water-baby children! Although I would not let them in the Gulf , there are two pools here at the condo, one indoor and one outdoor that they swam in each day. There are plenty of things to do with the kids around here...truly, it is a child-friendly environment. The kids really enjoyed the zoo and the water parks. There is an outlet mall about 15-20 minutes away and a Publix grocery store just down the road. All of the conveniences needed for a comfortable stay were easily accessible. I noticed an emergency medical facility is about 10-15 minutes drive (near the outlet mall). The condo is comfortable and private. Even if multiple families were to stay, the rooms are situated in such a way that no feels crowded. We are already making plans for next years visit!

Owner response: You are our first Arizonians Matthew and Ria. So glad you gave us a try. It really is a spectacularly beautiful area. We appreciate you and our local beach boy Jimmy Buffett and his little sister Lulu for giving a boost to the local economy. Let's all pray the oil leak get's plugged and BP continues with the clean-ups. Pat & Stan Johns
Still great, despite the spill!

We were here in June, and had an absolutely wonderful time! Although there were a few tar balls right on the shoreline, we still had fun flying kites and building sandcastles on the white sandy beach. The kids loved swimming in both the outdoor and indoor pools, and the grown-ups enjoyed the relaxing ocean breezes and beautiful views from the luxurious balcony. There are plenty of the nearby attractions and activities to keep everyone entertained. (The kids loved the Dolphin Cruise, Waterville USA, the Gulf Coast Zoo, Go-Kart Tracks, and Treasure Island.) And the restaurants were great! We had a terrific vacation, and felt good about supporting the Gulf Coast.

Pat and Stan, 3 ladies and I stayed in your condo recently and had a wonderful time. Your condo is beautifully decorated and fully equiped. Every thing we needed. The weather was not the best - cold and wet but what do you expect in January and we were not there for the beach, we were there to relax from our jobs and enjoy the fellowship of family members. We'll come back for the beach. We were close to the grocery store, drug store and everything, and enjoyed some delicious food at Bubba's (right across the street)and Lu Lu's Restaurants. We will definately be back to have a glass of wine on your large balcony, sit in the rocking chair and look at that beautiful blue water. Thank you for providing a great condo for visitors like us to enjoy, Anita, Margaret, Elizabeth and Judy

Pat and Stan Thank you so much for the hospitality we received in your wonderful beach front condo. Our recent vacation could not have been better. The weather was great and the condo was lovely. The seven of us felt very much at home and enjoyed a much needed vacation. Thanks also for the recommendation of the Dolphin Express cruise. It was amazing.....we saw many Dolphin and even had the chance to see several of them jumping the wake of our boat.

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.
