We just returned from out stay in Gulf Shores. We could not ask for a better place to stay. The staff was incredible and pleasant to deal with. My wife and I go married on the beach on 7/8/13. This is the 3rd year in the row and we plan on coming back. Thumbs up!!!

Owner response: Mike, Congratulations to you and your bride! I'm glad you had a positive experience and look forward to having you back a fourth time next year. Returing guests are most important to us, and represent about 85% of total guests this year. Tanks for taking the time to share your feedback. - All the best -
Just returned from our week stay in this condo in Gulf Shores. This is our second trip and second time staying at Seawind, we really liked this condo as the two main bedrooms and the living room all opened up onto the balcony, which itself is very large. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc.. The beds were very comfortable and my boys loved the bunk beds. The owner also has a chest with many beach items on the deck which came in very handy. I highly recommend this unit. Chuck was very good to work with in renting his condo and obviously takes great care in maintaining it. Look forward to staying here again.

Owner response: Good morning, Thank you for the kind review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your trip to the beach and hope to have you again as our guest. My kindest regards, Chuck Chumey - The Sand Guy
The pictures really do not do this condo justice!! The view is amazing and everything you need is in the condo. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful condo, it was very relaxing. We loved being close to everything. The balcony is soooo nice and to be able to watch the beach from your bed was awesome! Everybody in the condo was so nice and helpful. My daughter loved the pool and the hot tub was large and nice. It was chilly so we probably will not go back in March. During our time there were a lot of jelly fish that washed up one day, not sure if that is normal for Gulf Shores. It was very hard to leave!!!

Owner response: Thank you for the kind review. We agree about the pictures not doing it justice, but alas, you now know of my poor photography skills. The weather ranges widely in March, sometimes a bit chilly as reported and at other times perfect for swimming. We are pleased that you enjoyed your trip and look forward to hosting you again. My kindest regards, Chuck Chumley - The Sand Guy
Nice condo. Love the balcony.
Nice condo. Love the balcony.
Love the large balcony that has entrances from 2 bedrooms and the living room! It's big enough to entertain a large group and configured in a way that you can also have privacy from the different entrances. The rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the essentials plus more. The owners were nice enough to leave a "toy box" on the balcony full of things to use on the beach. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay in Gulf Shores.

We stayed in this unit this past summer. Despite all the negative publicity about the oil spill, the beach was beyond beautiful! Clear azure water and white sand! The condo could not have been nicer. It is roomy and comfortable. Since it is a corner condo the balcony is much larger than the others and the view is splendid! Wifi, flat screens and all the kitchen conveniences! Covered parking, two pools, bar-b-ques, fantastic work out room! You really did not need to leave but if you did you could just walk to the restaurants or the stores. So clean! I highly recommend this condo!!

This was a lovely unit, nice amenities, very clean and well laid out. The two bedrooms are large and well equipped. The bunk room was much smaller but definitely workable for the kids. The sound of the beach at night was lovely and the wraparound balcony was large. We stayed during Spring Break and the pool and hot tub during this busy time were full of people the entire week, and thus, somewhat unuseable. The rental management company was very responsive with an issue we had and sent a maintenance worker within an hour. We would definitely recommend to others. Gulf Shores is a great vacation!

This unit and complex are amazing and has everything we want in a vacation retreat. Beautiful and comfortable furnishing, equipped kitchen, flat screen tvs and high speed internet. Fantastic views from the huge balcony, walk to shopping and beach-front dining, incredible fitness center, pools and spa. We are coming back next year (this year too if we can get away). I recommend it to all.
