About The Sand Guy - Chuck Chumley

Chuck Chumley is locally known as 'The Sand Guy' due to his frequent visits to the beach where he constantly creates castles that beachgoers stand around for souvenier photos. He also customizes castles with your name when you make a donation to a variety of charities found on his web site - Find it by searching google for 'SandCastleGiving'. You can also follow him @TheSandGuy on Twitter.

The Sand Guy - Chuck Chumley purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Sand Guy - Chuck Chumley chose Alabama

We purchased this property because of the perfect location (you can walk to anything you need), the pie shape that eliminates the "who gets the balcony/ocean view" discussion, and the 5th floor is just 2 flights up from the parking garage level 3 so we never have to wait for busy resort elevators.

What makes this condo unique

Park your car and leave it - walk to shopping, pier, state park, restaurants, entertainment, etc... It's all here.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our week stay in this condo in Gulf Shores. This is our second trip and second time staying at Seawind, we really liked this condo as the two main bedrooms and the living room all opened up onto the balcony, which itself is very large. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc.. The beds were very comfortable and my boys loved the bunk beds. The owner also has a chest with many beach items on the deck which came in very handy. I highly recommend this unit. Chuck was very good to work with in renting his condo and obviously takes great care in maintaining it. Look forward to staying here again.

Very nice!!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really do not do this condo justice!! The view is amazing and everything you need is in the condo. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful condo, it was very relaxing. We loved being close to everything. The balcony is soooo nice and to be able to watch the beach from your bed was awesome! Everybody in the condo was so nice and helpful. My daughter loved the pool and the hot tub was large and nice. It was chilly so we probably will not go back in March. During our time there were a lot of jelly fish that washed up one day, not sure if that is normal for Gulf Shores. It was very hard to leave!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review. We agree about the pictures not doing it justice, but alas, you now know of my poor photography skills. The weather ranges widely in March, sometimes a bit chilly as reported and at other times perfect for swimming. We are pleased that you enjoyed your trip and look forward to hosting you again. My kindest regards, Chuck Chumley - The Sand Guy

Nice condo. Love the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

Love the large balcony that has entrances from 2 bedrooms and the living room! It's big enough to entertain a large group and configured in a way that you can also have privacy from the different entrances. The rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the essentials plus more. The owners were nice enough to leave a "toy box" on the balcony full of things to use on the beach. I would recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay in Gulf Shores.

Incredible Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit this past summer. Despite all the negative publicity about the oil spill, the beach was beyond beautiful! Clear azure water and white sand! The condo could not have been nicer. It is roomy and comfortable. Since it is a corner condo the balcony is much larger than the others and the view is splendid! Wifi, flat screens and all the kitchen conveniences! Covered parking, two pools, bar-b-ques, fantastic work out room! You really did not need to leave but if you did you could just walk to the restaurants or the stores. So clean! I highly recommend this condo!!
