About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

BEACH FRONT LIVING! Nothing between you and the beach but a stroll by the pool. This renovated 5th floor condo is located in heart of Orange Beach, Alabama, directly on the beach and overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. Breathtaking sunrises and sunsets are to be enjoyed in the comfort and privacy of your own gulf front balcony. This is a fully furnished and comfortably equipped second home, so you'll only need to bring your swimsuit, beach towel, and a bottle of sunscreen.

The kitchens and bathrooms were renovated in late 2013 with new cabinets, granite countertops, and whirlpool stainless appliances. We also installed new tile throughout the unit, converted to flat ceilings, and added two fresh coats of paint. Our condo has also been upgraded with furniture and electronics to make your stay more comfortable. The living room has a 42” flat-screen TV, upconverting DVD player, and sound system with I-Pod docking station. The bedroom offers a private bathroom, king-sized bed, 32' flat-screen TV and another upconverting DVD player. A queen-sized pull-out sofa and child bunks in the hallway complete our sleeping accommodations which, along with a second full bath, comfortably house a family of six. Wireless internet access is also available if you desire to check in while on your getaway.

The Tradewinds complex has a large, recently renovated, indoor-outdoor swim-through heated pool, plenty of parking, BBQ grills, and on-site security. And with only 107 units, Tradewinds petite size offers more space and less crowding while enjoying the white sands and emerald waters of Orange Beach.

If you venture out, excellent outdoor recreation is abound in the warm gulf waters including shoreline, state pier, and/or chartered boat fishing. Gorgeously manicured, championship golf courses dot the area and are their own feature destination for many. Excellent dining of all sorts is close by as well as retail, specialty, and outlet shopping which make the Alabama Gulf Coast a destination not to be missed.

On top of all this, rent directly from us, the owners, and maximize the value of your beach getaway. Please take a moment and view our pictures and get a better look at what we have to offer. Also feel free to peruse our website linked below for even more information and pictures of our unit. We appreciate your consideration of our properties and hope that we can host your next stay at the beach.

This property was perfect for our getaway. Chris was very helpful and quick to respond when I contacted him. It is equipped with everything we needed plus aND very clean. There is a closet full of beach chairs, toys etc for guest to use which was a bonus. The pictures don't do the views justice. We watched the dolphins play right from the balcony. Our first afternoon the Blue Angels did a fly over then 2 days later we were given an awesome show by both the Blue Angels and the Thunderbirds! It is located close to grocery, restaurants and arcade across the street. We played putt putt golf one evening and then had ice cream before dinner! It was so nice to go home with no laundry bc it has a nice HE washer/dryer in the condo, not just onsite that you have to share with others. This property is literally 25 steps from the pool to your beach chairs. We've never stayed this short of a walk to our chairs. The pool is very nice if you don't like sand. There is onsite security and all of the condo personnel were always very welcoming and friendly. We hated to leave! We will be booking this property again and recommend you do also!

Superb Condo, Superb Beach, Superb Area!

  • 5 of 5

We have only good to say about this condo. The decor is seaside and comfortable. The bed is of the best in any VRBO we have rented. The kitchen is excellent. The refrigerator and stove were almost like home; there is modest kitchen storage but remember it is not a four bedroom like yours at home! Bathrooms were clean; with a powerful shower. There were many beach chairs and toys. The deck overlooks everything on beach and is curved outward for more area. It is excellent for sunning right there! The elevators were quick & efficient with minimal waiting. Nearby great food stores are WinnDixie & Publix. Restaurants are too numerous to count. There is golf and the State Park close by. Internet in condo is easy to set up. There is a large TV in the living room with a comfy couch-bed; and another TV in the bedroom.

The owner (Chris) was very accommodating.

What else can we say - except don’t rent it when we want to return! This was much nicer decorated and more comfortable than two similar units on different floors (rented by friends and ourselves a different year). We had friends over to play dominoes (6 persons) without crowding. The beach is very clean, white sugar sand and 100 yd wide in front of condo. The pool is nice all day long. The beach was nearly empty this February (we swam). After dark, we mostly read (at last!) and wrote many short stories when not visiting with friends.

There are many wonderful churches nearby; old homes to tour; the fantastic Pensacola Naval Museum (worth 2 days at least), The Civil War fort, Battleship end of things to do if you do not want to just relax. Our overall impression is 10 of 10. There really is only good to say about this unit (and the area)!

We really want to come back in 2018.
