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 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 Wade Paschall chose Orange Beach

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 perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a fantastic place to stay for our teenage boys and us. We love the balcony! The view of the beach and the pool was great! We loved the easy andckose access to the beaches. The beds were really comfortable, as well as the furniture. Kitchen was just what you need on a vacation. There were restaurants nearby and we never had a wait to eat in the Orange Beach area. I will say this was the. Eat vacation ever. Thank you to the owners for everything.
