Seawind condo description

Unit #604 at Seawind is a luxury, oceanfront condo, professionally decorated in a highly desirable area of Gulf Shores, Alabama. At the end of Hwy 59 turn east (left) and the condo is 1/4 mile on your right.

It is one of the premium 'pie-shaped' condos with 1237 sq ft of living area and 343 sq ft of balcony. It is open and spacious without that closed in 'get me to the balcony quick' feeling of some vacation rentals.

We have a 45 ft. balcony that can comfortably accommodate a large table seating 6 as well as additional chaise lounges and chairs. The master bedroom, living room and guest bedroom all open onto the balcony. The view from the balcony is probably the best you will find at the Gulf.....and every day you will get to see the sun rise and set from the comfort of your balcony.

Our condo is on the 6th floor which is close enough to the beach to not feel isolated but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet you are seeking.

The kitchen is perfect for guests who want to cook or entertain while staying in Unit #604......we have a fully equipped kitchen. I love to cook, so I know it's got everything you might need to make that perfect meal.

Our condo is located in an area within walking distance of all those things teens enjoy. If you have smaller children you are within walking distance of kid friendly entertainment. If you want to just relax and stay put, the pools and beach are perfect for the kids....the fitness room is state of the art for the exercise enthusiast.

If you enjoy just sitting in the sun getting a tan....there are chairs and umbrellas for rent from vendors right in front of the condo....and while tanning you might decide you need some crab claws for a quick lunch and a nice glass of sweet tea?.....just walk over to the Sea & Suds and enjoy the best seafood you ever put in your mouth.

Gulf Shores is a beautiful place that we know you will enjoy as much as we have....and whether you decide to rent from us or another condo owner.....thank you for considering Gulf Shores as a place to visit. It is a place with the most beautiful beaches in the world; seafood that is out of this world; and hospitality that is a world apart.

I tell you, there is no sound like it. It is the most relaxing sound in the world. Being born and raised in Mobile means I have spent so many summers listening to that very sound and I can tell you, it is very special. Hopefully your reservation will be for a time when the moon is full....the reflection on the water and off the white sand beach....well, what can I say. PRICELESS!!...moreless

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Hi Folks!! We are David and Gloria England and we just bought Unit 604 in Seawind in February, 2012. It's a dream come true for us and we know you will find it to be a place to make wonderful memories for your family and friends. I was born and raised in Mobile and David in Florence, Alabama. We now live in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. David is an engineer...AUBURN GRAD....War Eagle!! . ...and I'm an RN. Our sons are grown, we have one grandson and two Chocolate Labs.....Hershey and Fudge. We invite you to share in this wonderful world of the Gulf and all of its beauty and fun.

                  Why Seawind:
                  We had spent many summer vacations at the Gulf at Youngs By the Sea. Seawind is built on the site as Youngs was destroyed by a hurricane so to us it was 'just meant to be' that we find a place in this new condominium.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Unit 604 is located just a quarter mile East of Hwy 59, the Hangout and the Pink Pony....right next to the Sea & Suds and 100 yards from the water. The balcony is large enough to spread out the guests, enjoy a sit down meal and watch sunrises and sunsets. It's great too to be only on the 6th floor....just right for the perfect view, nice and quiet yet close enough to see each porpoise as it jumps and read the numbers on the Blue Angels as they occasionally fly by while practicing. Then if that's not enough, you can walk to the Gulf State Park Fishing Pier!!
