Wind Drift condo description

QUIET & PEACEFUL GULF-FRONT ESCAPE! Condo next to nature preserve means room to enjoy the beautiful beach!

If you are looking for a great place to escape, this unit is a perfect spot to enjoy the beauty of the Gulf’s white sand, sunrises & sunsets, dolphin sightings, surf and more! This 2 bedroom, 2 bath Gulf-front condo is one of the most private condos in Orange Beach. A one-mile strip of nature preserve neighboring the condos means the beach will never be congested and makes WindDrift a continually sought-after place to stay. It’s simply a great place for families and friends to enjoy time together in a great location!

Located between the Perdido Pass Bridge and the Florida-Alabama state line (where you’ll find famed “FloraBama”), across from Ono Island, WindDrift allows you to enjoy the closeness of restaurants, shopping, etc. while also enjoying the peacefulness of the open beach. It is also a low-density building (7 floors), which means less congestion for you.

Inside the unit you’ll find a very spacious home away from home, tastefully decorated with ceramic tile and great artwork, and a great ocean view from the 6th floor balcony. It’s also well outfitted for guests. There is a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable dining table as well as eat-in-bar with stools, wet bar and den in one open area. Bedrooms are the perfect place to unwind; one king bed, two twin beds, and a sleeper sofa are available for guests (sleeps 4-6). TVs are provided in all bedrooms and high speed Internet access keeps you connected (if you want to be)!

Amenities include a large outdoor pool and two lighted tennis courts. Guests can enjoy boating and fishing on Ole River, across the street, and boat/jet ski slips are available.

There are several great restaurants and grocery stores within a few miles from the unit, as well as marinas to take fishing trips or simply watch the boats come in each day. The Wharf, located on the intercoastal, features shopping restaurants, a 15-screen movie complex, 10,000-seat Amphitheater and the tallest ferris wheel in the Southeast. There are also several other family entertainment options with Waterville USA, putt-putt golf, go-carts, etc. In Foley, you’ll find Tanger Center Outlet where great deals can be found on clothing and other household items.

                            We stayed here a year ago and are looking forward to returning again this summer. The condo is clean and has a great balcony with incredible views of the ocean. This balcony just begs you to sit and read a good book. The condo is located close enough to Gulf Shores to go eat and shop yet far away from its crowded beaches. The beach area is beautiful and there is plenty of room to spread out for the kids to play.

                            Manager response: Look forward to you coming back. We appreciate your comments. Thank you Fletcher

                            This particular condo unit is wonderful! Spacious, impeccably clean, and an amazing ocean view sum up the experience from inside. The beach and ocean are also particularly beautiful. My complaint has to do with the particular gulf area. We had a difficult time finding desirable restaurants and child-friendly indoor activities. Everything we encountered ended up being in the "low-budget" spectrum, meaning that a lot of what I expect from a sight-seeing vacation just wasn't there. I would NOT recommend the zoo - the animals were sad and the facilities were decrepit. I likely won't vacation to this locale again, but if I do I will definitely try to book this specific unit. The owner was wonderful to work with!

                            We stayed in this condo for the second year in a row. It was very clean when we arrived and Fletcher is very easy to work with as far as payments, booking, etc. We will definitely be booking this condo again next year. Great view, great location, and it is NOT crowded on this part of the beach. I know people complain about the Wi-Fi being slow, but, I don't want Wi-Fi while I'm on vacation, I want to relax, and this is the perfect place to just relax and have a good time. My kids also love this condo.

                            Manager response: Thank for the response. We will be looking for the call next time ya'll come to Orange Beach. My kids love it as well. My 3 year old has been asking When we go beach? Thanks Again for responding.

                            We stayed here from 6/15-6/22 and had a great time. The condo had a great view and the beach location was wonderful. The condo was in great shape. I only wished the wi-fi was not so slow. We definitely want to return next year.

                            Manager response: Thank you for your response. We appreciate it. We look forward to hearing from you next year Thanks, Fletcher

                            We had a wonderful beach vacation...the condo is even better than the photos! The view from the balcony was perfect, and we spent many hours on the balcony, listening to the waves, watching the dolphins and enjoying the breeze. The beach was clean, not crowded and beach chair/umbrella rental was available for a very nominal charge. The condo was very well equipped with everything we needed, and the children enjoyed their own bedroom with twin beds. The master bedroom had a very comfortable bed and also opened to the large balcony. Fletcher was very easy to work with and made the rental process simple. The staff were very helpful, and the security was tight. We will be back!

                            A wonderful place to relax. It has the best balcony in the entire building!!! Due to the rough water conditions, we spent most of our days reading and relaxing on the balcony. The condo was very clean and looked exactly like the pictures. Beautifully decorated, nice towels and even sharp knives in the kitchen drawer.

We will definitely be staying in this condo again. The beach is very close and my kids had a blast. The condo is actually bigger than the photos lead you to believe, which is a HUGE bonus.

                            My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Orange Beach. This condo was just what I was looking for....quiet, private with great views from master bedroom and living area out to the Gulf.... open doors and listening to the surf...my idea of the perfect vacation spot. Close to restaurants and shopping. Loved the place and our time there.
