Absolutely loved this unit, we stayed from July 6-July 13th and found it excellent! The decor is very nice and the additions of the flat screen tv's and blu ray player helped on the one day we got rained out from the beach. The owners are extremely helpful, we had to notify them of an ac issue and it was fixed within 2 hours of our call! The views from the balcony are breathtaking and we feel that this will be our new go to location every summer!

This was a trip of a lifetime for me. We left the day after my daughter graduated college and before she starts her teaching job and my son starts his summer job. Although quite a drive from Kansas City, it was well worth it! It's the first time we visited Gulf Shores and it was beautiful! We enjoyed this condo very much! It was the first time I've rented a condo and I was quite nervous about it. The owner answered all my questions and calmed my nerves with quick responses and valuable information. I can only hope we'll be able to go again some day, and I'd definitely stay at this condo. We stayed four nights and it definitely felt like our home away from home. The beds were comfortable and the condo was in good shape and very cean. Everything we needed was there for us. We also liked the smaller complex and where it was located. The only negative was there was no water in the pool. However after speaking with the owner and maintenance, arrangements were made for us to use the one next door so we were very satisfied. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a quiet relaxing area.

Wow is all I can say. My family and I love this condo. Perfect location and it's has a fantastic ocean view. You have everything you need when staying at this condo Sandy was wonderful to work with! The weather was perfect and the kids had such a wonderful time. They didn't even want to go anywhere but the condo and neither did we.

Indeed a great view of the ocean!

My husband wanted to try someplace different for our yearly vacation, and we decided to try Gulf Shores. This condo was our little piece of paradise that we called home for a week. Sitting out on the balcony drinking our morning coffee, or reading a book while hearing the ocean waves right in front of us was worth the trip. The condo was VERY nice and the view was inspiring to say the least. There are so many great seafood restaurants close by which we enjoyed. One evening though we bought steaks and my husband went to a local seafood market and bought fresh shrimp. That meal compared to any we ate out. Time to go out and walk again on the beach so if you get time to head down to Gulf Shores please consider staying here!

The condo was clean, comfortable and perfect for my family of 4 (including 2 young children). We enjoyed the beach, pool and sitting on the balcony. My 6 year old son especially loved the Super Nintendo in his room (since he does not have a gaming system). We were only there for 3 days, but made the most of it. We visited the USS Alabama in Mobile on our way in, drove to Pensacola and toured the Blue Angels museum (FREE!) and spent time on the beach playing and building sand castles. Sandy was a joy to work with. We will definitely visit Tropical Winds 403 again!!

Perfectly Relaxing in a Gem of a Condo.
Perfectly Relaxing in a Gem of a Condo.
We just returned from a week of perfect relaxation. This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, AL so I search and searched online for a Condo or home that would meet our needs for our family of 4. Tropical Winds 403 is adorable and very clean. There are NEW highdef large flat screens TV's with DVD's in each bedroom and the living room. My daughters absolutely fell in love with their room with twin beds and the cuted tropical decor; it was like there own little private movie room. The condo has everything you could need in the kitchen and is SPOTLESS! We cooked b'fast each morning and grilled and ate poolside every night. The best part about Tropical Winds, is the location and the low density condo. The beach and pool were never crowed, like they are in front of the other large high density condos complexes. So each day we had our pic of where we wanted to just relax. We we can't wait to come again next summer!

We truly enjoyed our time in this beautiful condo. It had everything we needed!! The beach was also beautiful. The owners are wonderful people to work with and I would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much for some much needed rest in this beautiful setting.

This condo was exactly what my group needed before we started back to school. We wanted a nice spacious and relaxing condo that was located right on the beach. That's exactly what we got! Our group of 5 had plenty of space. My favorite things about this condo are: the balcony, the location, and the price! (We got an amazing "end of summer" deal.) My least favorite things would be: nothing! Loved, loved, loved it! And it was a big plus that Sandy was so easy to work with. Thanks again Sandy!

My family try to visit a state we've never been to each yr for vacation and this year was our year for Alabama and a beach(and beaches would be last on my list...until now). This condo was awesome! Very clean, comfortable for 4 adults and 2 preteens and the view from the master bedroom was just heavenly...to open the window and see the Gulf in all its beauty was something to see once in a lifetime. I loved getting up with my coffee and sitting on the balcony waiting for the dolphins to jump out of the water like they were saying "good morning". The kids loved the beach (until the fish seemed like they were literally jumping over their heads) and in the pool they made a few "friends." If I had to say anything "negative" it would be that there was only one treadmill that worked in the activity room and my sister and I really needed both to work after eating at the Hangout and it was too hot/humid to jog outside at that time. Easy access to waterpark, eateries, grocery stores, etc. The pics provided are very accurate of the condo and you really don't need to bring much from home. We were very pleased for our very first trip to Gulf Shores and this condo is a place worth repeating :-)

Owner response: I am so pleased that Gulf Shores, and particularly, Tropical Winds 403 was all and more than you expected. I will address the condition of the exercise equipment with our maintenance department. We are really worth the trip to Alabama.
We enjoyed a wonderful week in Gulf Shores with family and friends. The condo was very comfortable and had all the amenities of home. The master bedroom was great with a private bathroom, beautiful views, and access to the balcony overlooking the beach. Many mornings we saw dolphins from the balcony. Short walks to the building, elevator, and beach made it easy for someone with joint problems to get around effortlessly. The beds are comfortable and everything was clean and well maintained. I highly recommend this property and hope to visit again soon!
