About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 0-6)

No check-in required. Go directly to the your condo with an updated keyless entry. Our guests enjoy the keyless door entry as there are no keys to mess with. We know you have choices on properties to rent and we keep this condo in excellent condition with an attention to detail/updates. You will not have any surprises when you rent from our family. Our guests come back again and again and refer their friends. Rent from our family and you will understand why!

This direct Gulf front condo in on the 8th floor, just high enough for great sweeping views without the loud beach and pool noises.

This one bedroom, two bath condominium has updated tile throughout and has magnificent direct Gulf front views (beach and pool) from the balcony and sleeps 6 with a (very comfortable) king size bed in the master bedroom, convertible queen size sleeper sofa and two hall bunks.

In 2006, Tradewinds building was also updated with a new indoor/outdoor heated swim-through pool, new deck, fencing and lush landscaping.

Also worth noting is that Tradewinds has only 107 condominium units thus the beach is much less crowded than mega-condominium buildings. Tradewinds is about one-half mile from a shopping center which includes a 'Winn Dixie' grocery store as well as numerous other shops (Dollar General Store), restaurants, and an emergency medical center.

Tradewinds is approximately five miles east of the intersection of Perdido Beach Boulevard and Highway 59. This area hosts numerous souvenir shops, restaurants, family entertainment (small amusement park, water park, etc.). The 'Wharf' is also less than 3 miles away from the condo.

Free WiFi!

Beautiful Ocean View with Bonus Heated Pool

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our 10 day stay in this unit. It was easy to access with the keyless entry. The unit was neat and clean. Towels, sheets and kitchenware were provided. The washer and dryer were a plus. There was a lovely HEATED pool. The entry door could use some minor repair to improve the "curb appeal".

Cozy and Comfortable; Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a very enjoyable stay in this Unit at Tradewinds. We loved the ease of getting in and out of the small complex, the easy parking, the great location and the cozy room. Best of all was the owner, who accommodated some needs that we had that went way beyond what is typical.

No tv.

  • 3 of 5

The condo itself was well equipped & lovely.

Mediacom was out bldg wide upon arrival. Neither remotes worked. My hubby is tv addict, so he wasn't happy.

Occasionally, he could get weather channel only in bedroom. The owner needs to reset or replace the remotes.

We have stayed at several condos in Gulf Shores. We decided to try Orange Beach and were totally satisfied with the condo and the area itself. The description of the condo said excellent ocean front and it was as advertised. If this unit is available when we go back I will definitely try to book it. By the way the owner was very nice. I was concerned with the upcoming hurricane and he agreed to let me change my date. With his reassurance we decided to go ahead with our plans and leave a day early. Everything worked out great for us. Great experience!

Very helpful owner! Needed get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a great family time. The automatic door lock evidently has a small issue if the door shuts too hard (someone opened it when someone else had opened the sliding door on the beach side) and shakes it loose but the owner was very receptive and helpful when we couldn't get in and called.

We are used to having a 2 bedroom unit so the beds in the wall were interesting for our kids. We probably have kids that are too old to fit well into this type of arrangement but at this time it was fine. Younger kids (age appropriate for bunk beds) would love it!

We couldn't locate a flipper for pancakes (a tradition) so we bought and donated one but anything else we needed was there. You should bring your own laundry detergent, dish washing detergent and soap, and toilet paper if there for several days and have a large family. We go out to eat a couple of times but eat in to save some money more so we use the dishes well while at the beach.

Was very thankful for access to the broom to sweep up the sand (or as much as possible when at the beach). Love the close beach access and the pool option.
