Seawind condo description

Tired of reading vacation ads? Click on the video tab on the picture (to the left) and then sit back and listen. Just one way we make it easier for you.

How can your vacation change the world? A couple different ways.
1st - A portion of all rentals goes to charities fighting cancer, helping victims of human trafficking, supporting wounded warriors and children who have lost parents during the year. Google search SandCastleGiving to learn more.

2nd - All inquiries receive the 'Beach Bum's Guide To 4-Letter Words' eColoring book (don't worry parents, it is Rated G) and a free subscription to the monthly motivational sand castle ePosters as our gifts. The eBook was recently described by one guest as a 'near perfect non-electronic cure for the are-we-there-yet-syndrome'.




This is the Best Vacation Condo in Gulf Shores!
Why do we say so? We care about our customers and do what is needed to assure satisfaction. Some of the ways we do this include...
* Honor special requests where possible for early check-ins / late check-outs.
* Use Seawind's on-site mgmt. company to process reservations which means you get the VRBO special pricing and the security of knowing a professional on-site mgmt team is available to assist you.
* Frequently restock with items people enjoy such as boogie boards, chairs, buckets and shovels
* Charge regular cleaning fees but pay for upgraded deep-cleaning service to assure your comfort.

What are you waiting for? Recessions stink, vacations are great. Our prices are fair to help more people enjoy our wonderful home at the beach and to secure more rentals. We want your business and it will be evident in all that we do. Click the 'RATES' link above or scroll down to see the latest specials.
