About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

We’ve owned our condo for a number of years now, and have really enjoyed the experience. We’ve had so many great guests (many of whom return to stay with us each year) and we've met some really wonderful people. When we made our first trip to Orange Beach back in 2008 to look at property, we immediately loved the area. The Alabama Gulf Coast is such a hidden gem and so family friendly. Outside the south, it’s still very much unknown and we like that just fine. We came down from Kansas where white sand beaches and blue ocean water are things you have to go find, and we feel like we found a hidden diamond in the rough.

We also quickly fell in love with the Four Winds building and its beachfront location. It’s a small building (36 total units), especially compared to the many mega-plexes that line the beach. We looked at several different units in the entire area , but really liked Four Winds 501 the best. Being on the fifth floor, it’s high enough to have a great, 180-degree view of the ocean and beach, but also low enough that you don’t feel disconnected from the beach activity. It’s also a corner unit, so it is wide open looking east with the next condo over sitting further back farther from the beach. We get to watch the sunrise and sunset and it's often incredible.

Within our particular condo, we have tried to create a space that feels more like a second home that we share with friends and family. In the last few years, we have put in new flooring, new maple cabinets and granite countertops in the kitchen and guest bath, as well as new furniture and appliances. This year we added a 2-seater piece of patio furniture that allows you to sit up a little higher than our table and 4 wicker chairs. We noticed not many of the units in this area offer this feature. We like how it’s come together so far, but we are always looking at new things we can do going forward to make it better and more enjoyable for ourselves and our guests.

Our hope is that our guests will see and feel the thought and care we've put into Four Winds 501 and choose to stay with us whenever they visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Why Veronica Paschall chose Alabama

My brother and I had talked for a long time about wanting to have a vacation home for our friends and family. And neither of us had ever been to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area before our visit to look at properties there. We did so at the suggestion of a friend of my brother's. We just liked the casual vibe of the Alabama Gulf Coast and that, outside The South, Orange Beach/Gulf Shores is still fairly undiscovered. After looking at a number of properties over a few days, we settled on Four Winds #501.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing about staying at our place is getting up with the sun and watching it rise over the ocean while sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee. It's the perfect way to start the day. Oftentimes I'll see dolphins swimming along the coastline. My wife and son like to sleep in and I get some good quiet time before hitting the beach and enjoying the soft, sugar-sand beaches and warm water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to let you know that my family just returned today from visiting Orange Beach and staying in your condo and we all had an amazing time! The weather was perfect, the condo was very clean and the perfect size and location. We all especially loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the incredible view. We hope to be back someday. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it. Thanks.

A very nice time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay with my husband and two young children. The condo was spacious for a family of four, it was clean, and the view was great. The condo is right on the beach which was great. The pool area could use a little bit of shade, and there was work being done in the unit above us (which was obviously out of anyone's control). Overall, we had a very nice time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us Mila, we looked at pricing from other condos in our 34 unit building and we were cheaper than many and more expensive than others as well. One thing we hope most people want is the best view on the beach, which I think we have. We also added 6 new balcony chairs, with 2 that allow you to see over the railing, only a couple of units have this feature. Thanks again and please try us again in the future, we are constantly making improvements based at feedback from our guests.

Great Condo Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our two teenage daughters and could not have asked for a better place to spend our vacation. The Four Winds building is smaller than the high rise buildings in the area, yet you still get all of the big building amenities including pool, hot tub and kiddie pool without the crowds and wait times for elevators. Also you can rent chaise lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach for your entire stay. Our unit was furnished very nicely with tasteful decor and many upgrades including an updated kitchen, wood tile flooring and comfortable balcony furniture. We had a corner unit with panoramic views from the balcony. The beaches here cannot be beat with the super soft white sand, gentle surf and warm clear water. Check in was a breeze with the keypad lock system and the owner went our of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again!
