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.

Exactly as pictured, great location!

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4 and had a wonderful experience! I must admit that upon first approaching the building, I had reservations. It wasn't much to look at and there was no lobby or welcome area, so it seemed a little sketchy. However, once we got into our unit, we were very pleased!

Our 3 and 5 year olds were thrilled with the bunk beds and slept great in them! (Although I would strongly suggest the owner replace the bottom mattress. It was thin and sagging in the middle. It wasn't a problem for my 3 year old but anyone else might have an issue with it.) The king bed was very comfortable and we were pleased to have two bathrooms to share. The best part of the condo? The view! The balcony was large enough to fit our family around the table and we enjoyed our coffee with the beautiful views every morning!

The pool was clean and easily accessible and the beach is only steps from the condo! We loved how convenient it was to get to the beach, which is a must with little children. The unit had plenty of beach toys available for use as well.

The biggest issue we had (through no fault of the owners) is that the wall of the master bedroom is an outside wall, which mean we could hear every drunken conversation that occurred outside the unit in the middle of the night. It occurred on 2 nights, so future renters may want to consider ear plugs just in case.

Overall, we really enjoyed our experience and would recommend this condo! The beach is beautiful, the unit was clean and exactly as pictured!

The oceanfront view was amazing but the condo was musty and dirty.

  • 2 of 5

While the view was amazing, the condo was lacking. It had a musty, closed-up smell. The condo had dirt, dust, and peeling paint on the door frames. There was rust in the sink, leftover gunk on the blender, hair shavings in the shower, and dust on the doors and ceilings (by the vents). I do not think the condo was cleaned before we arrived. On the positive side, the king sized bed was comfortable, the ac worked well, and the refrigerator was nice. The hall bunks mattresses were sunken. Very disappointed in the condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the update on the condition of the condo. I wish you would have contacted me upon arrival and I would have sent cleaning service back to take care of any issues. I have a deep cleaning every three months but unfortunately your stay was just before this cleaning was to be completed. I will also contact our cleaning service to make sure the condo is cleaned properly and inspected between guests. I personally plan to make a trip this week to inspect and take care of any issues. This condo will be back in tip top shape by the end of the week!

This was a great condo in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well taken care of. The view was amazing to wake up to ever morning. It had everything we needed for the time we were there. The owner is very responsive with any questions you might have. It is also in a great location. The beach is very clean and beautiful. Would definitely recommend this condo again and again.

Tradewinds Condo #803 Orange Beach Al

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the month of January.The condo was very nicely updated, clean, and the view was awesome, Right on the Gulf with miles of beach to walk. The owner, Craig, was great to work with, any questions/concerns were answered quickly. The one bedroom 2 bathrooms was perfect for the two of us but you could do 4 people comfortably.

The view sells this Condo,

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo was great with an awesome ocean view! The only issue we had was that the condo had not been cleaned when we arrived but I called Mr. Craig and he got a crew out to get it cleaned in a reasonable amount of time. Other than that small issue this was a wonderful place and we had a great stay in Orange Beach.
