This unit is a gem! My husband and I rented it for 6 weeks as a winter get away. The unit was immaculate! It was everything stated in the listing and more. It is very well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The décor is very, very nice and welcoming. The balcony views are amazing and a great place to enjoy your coffee in the morning or cocktail in the evening. Howard and Annette were beyond helpful and a pleasure to work with. We hope to stay in this wonderful unit again in the future!

Overall Great Experience
Overall Great Experience
We just returned from a very enjoyable week at this condo. Everything was exactly as advertised, and we found the unit to be quite clean and comfortable. Though we have previously stayed in newer condo complexes and larger units (that cost more), this particular unit at Tradewinds perfectly met our needs for a family of 4. In fact, the kitchen was better stocked than most places we have rented before, with many small appliances, utensils and a good mix of both kid and adult dinnerware. We especially enjoyed the balcony, and saw dolphins most days. The pool area was very well-maintained and the location on the beach was great. You know it's a great vacation when you voluntarily wake up at 6am each day in order to make coffee in time to catch the sunrise! The owner was also very nice to work with --- overall, a great experience!!

Owner response: Thanks Amanda! Our favorite meal when we travel there is to buy local fresh shrimp and have a relaxing seafood feast on the balcony! We want to keep the kitchen stocked so guests can take advantage of this unique dining experience. See you next year!

Our family of four spent a wonderful, relaxing week in July 2012 at Howard's condo. Location was great, right on the beach, and the pelicans were flying right past the balcony every day - you could practically touch them. Groceries and restaurants nearby, short drive to Pensacola to the Naval Avaiation museum, and lots of parasailing opportunities! The mornings on the balcony were the best, watching the beach life slowly wake up, and yes we saw dolphins on more than one morning! The owner was very easy to work with, and our daughters can't wait to come back.

End of Summer weekend
End of Summer weekend
We had two couples for an end of the summer weekend getaway from Dallas. The condo was wonderful and exactly as promised. It seemed like we were close enough to touch the gulf. I could see sunrise and sunset from the large balcony. Pool was nice too. We spent all our time on the beach or in the condo. All meals were cooked in the condo and the kitchen was fully equipped. We bought fresh fish from the recommended fish market. Why would I want to eat anywhere else. Nothing could beat that view.

Owner response: Thanks John. We're always impressed with our friends from Texas who drive past their own beaches to come to ours. It's obviously worth the drive!! See you this Summer!
Perfect weather, Great Condo

Stayed with my daughter & niece. We had lots of room. 5/21/2011 thru 5/27/2011. Glorious weather, great views both day & night from the balcony. Best beach service ever. Howard was amazing to work with & the Condo was exactly as it was described. Impressed by Security & overall landscaping. The pool area, inside & out, was immaculate. Close to restaurants & shopping. Telling all my friends about this property. We will definitely be coming back to this wonderful Tradewinds Condo and Orange Beach AL area.

THANK YOU Howard! Our trip was great and your condo was perfect. The beaches were beautiful, clean and no sign of oil whatsoever! I'll definitely recommend it to our friends.

The Condo was perfect!
The Condo was perfect!
My wife and I and three children ranging in ages from 4-7 really had a great time at your Condo! We love the beach, and did in fact see dolphins each day from the balcony...especially in the mornings. Sea shells are fun for the kids to collect, and the beach was big enough to spread out and enjoy without feeling crowded out. In addition, there are plenty of places to dine out at each night, and you never have to hit the same place twice, unless of course the food was great! We'll be back again for sure sometime in the future!

Owner response: We have had many long term winter guests from the northern U.S. and Canada but we were particularly flattered that someone would travel as far away as Michigan for a one week visit-- we must be doing something right! We're looking forward to hearing them again. Our goal is to create annual guests not just one time visitors! Sincerely, Howard & Annettee, Owners
The condo was great and the view was beautiful. Howard was very easy to work with in reserving this condo. I would recommend this condo to anyone.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in the condo. All of our expectations were met/exceeded. The view is wonderful and the location couldn't be better. This was our first trip to the beach in 7 years, but we won't wait that long again. We'd love to stay in this condo again.

Owner response: We use a housekeeping service that uses a commercial laundry exchange which means fresh sheets are brought in between guests. Commercial laundries literally boil the sheets and towels giving each bed a set of sterile sheets and each bath extremely clean towels. We have a "no-cooties" promise on our linens.

About the owner: My name is Howard Wadsworth, you will probably be dealing with me on the rental. My wife Annettee and I have have been married for 24 years and have two beautiful girls, age 13, and 9. We are from Auburn, Alabama, in east central Alabama just four hours north of our famous white sand beaches. For the past 26 years I have owned a jewelry business specializing in loose diamonds and fine diamond jewelry and Annettee has been selling local cable TV advertising for almost 20 years. We both love to travel with our children to the beach or to our lake cabin nearby.
Why the Owner Chose Tradewinds:
We bought our unit at Tradewinds because we knew it was going to be a great location to spend precious vacation time. The family atmosphere on the beach is unmatched. Our kids always find play buddies and we have made many new friends on the beach there We love Adventure Island! Go Karts, Putt-putt golf, laser tag plus much more! Having a major area amusement park right across the road is a huge plus. Tradewinds is located just minutes from grocery stores and is convenient to everything! My wife and I both frequented the area before we met and always referred to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area as 'the beach' . We have many happy memories there and we feel at home there. We know the good restaurants where the locals eat and the special places to visit. I'll be glad to share these with you. The area has a unique feel and truly is a place where everyone feels at ease. It's quaint but not stuffy, fun but not too rowdy. If you are looking for a family atmosphere or if you want to kick up your heels a little, Orange Beach is the place!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Very few vacationers have the opportunity to enjoy a view like this. Most of the gulf front units at Tradewinds have a single smaller balcony. We have a generous double balcony with a dining table. Since no one can see in, except the sea gulls, you can enjoy your privacy with the drapes wide open all day! At this height you can still hear the waves and feel the wind but not hear the pool noise. My favorite thing to do at least once every trip is to visit the local seafood grocery and have them prepare a seafood dinner and bring it back to the condo to enjoy. Steamed shrimp, gumbo, fresh baked bread, whoa! ...it really doesn't get any better than this! Barefoot dining at it's finest. We also have one of the areas only outdoor heated pools for the spring guests.
