Property description

Welcome to WindDrift and the most secluded beachfront condo in Orange Beach. One mile of state park immediately to the west promises you a beautiful beach which is never crowded. There is a spectacular ocean view from the living room and master bedroom. From the front door you can view the bay and Ono Island. Watch the sunset from the 6th floor balcony on a cool winter evening and see dolphins putting on a show in the early mornings.

WindDrift has two pools, lighted tennis courts, boat/jet ski parking and a pier with boat/jet ski slips for renters use at our site across the street. Crabbing and fishing are fun experiences. Most of the units at WindDrift are non-rentals and all owners take extra pride in their home away from home.

This condo has been completely redecorated in a comfortable coastal motif. Both bathrooms have lovely faux painted walls with double sinks in the master bath. Hand-painted chairs and stools add a custom touch to the dining room area. The spacious balcony affords plenty of room to enjoy breakfast or a memorable sunset accompanied by the sounds of the waves. This is a great place for an afternoon nap if someone else has claimed the recliner in the living room.

See the Blue Angels practice in Pensacola at the Naval Air Station on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 11:00, walk along the beach to the FloraBama for an evening of music, see the turtles hatch in August, drive over to Fort Morgan and catch the ferry to Dolphin Island or just plan to relax and enjoy the white sandy beach and the amazing sparkle of the emerald waters.

Plan now for a vacation you will enjoy. Make memories you will treasure.

Location

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: In late 2014 and early 2015 we undertook some major improvements: the tub surround in both bathrooms tiled , both bedrooms and bathrooms tiled, new sliding glass doors installed and new art work and comforters purchased. Everything was newly painted in January and it looks great.

Why the Owner Chose Orange Beach East (Orange Beach, AL, USA):
We bought WindDrift because we wanted to be as far east in Orange Beach as possible. The state park next to us is an added bonus for the location. This complex is never crowded with renters as most of the owners do not rent out their condo.
