About Beachball Properties

We are a couple from Wisconsin who love to spend our winters in Gulf Shores, Alabama and our summers back home in Wisconsin. We hired a local, family-owned property management company, Beachball Properties, to handle our vacation rentals for us. We love the friendly customer service they provide to our vacation guests, and they do an exceptional job of taking care of all of our property needs.

Why Beachball Properties chose Gulf Shores

We've been vacationing to the Gulf Shores area for decades and finally decided that we wanted to own our own piece of paradise. We love our Gulf front balcony, outdoor pool, and being in the middle of all the action -- we can walk to The Hang Out!

Owner's Response: This may be the strangest review we have ever received in all of our years in business. This condo is one of our top units and stays rented throughout the year. We checked our records and could not find the lady who left this review as a customer of ours. Please disregard this review.

Nice location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. We’re a family of five with two kids under two. I was worried it would be too small for us, but it was just right. I would bring extra toilet paper, garbage bags, and food storage containers for leftovers if you plan to cook or bring food to the beach.

under construction

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed the location of this condo, but we were not told before we booked that Island Winds West was under construction. They are painting and doing other updates to the building. We were told when we got the parking pass when we checked in that the plastic would still be on our patio and to not touch or remove it. She asked me if the company had told me and I told her no. We had booked this room thinking we would have an ocean view and our children could see out the window onto the beach. There was another window facing the beach that we were able to look at for 2 days and then when we got back from the pool one day they had covered that window as well and there was a worker standing on our patio to our surprise. Make sure if you want your ocean view, you check and see if they are done painting!

Owner's Response: It’s very unfair that this guest gave this amazing condo a 3 Star. We were told the painting was completed on May 15th for the Hangout Festival. Our guests at that time had no problem. After that weekend the company that manages the complex decided to do touch up paint but never notified anyone of recovering windows. We were just as shocked as this guest to find this out. Painting is complete and everything about this condo is represented as 100% fact. Please see other reviews for a true representation of the unit.
