Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Thanks for your interest in our condo. We rent it ourselves, so there is no rental company involved. We only rent to people that are responsible and will treat the rental as their own. Renting this way, we are able to keep the condo in a lot better shape. We ask that you please help us by treating it as if it were your own (or better?)as you enjoy your stay at the beach.

What it is:

411 Island Winds East 3-Bedrooms, 2-Bath Beachside condo. It’s on the 4th floor and has a great side view of the Gulf from the balcony, as well as a view down West Beach Blvd and parts of Little Lagoon. You can see the Lagoon from most of the North-facing windows, and from the East bedroom you have a great gulf view, including the main Gulf Shores Public Beach, the “T” where AL59 meets Beach Blvd, and some view down East Beach Blvd. There are 2 elevators, so you should never have to take the stairs, and it is a very short walk to the beach (past our pool and grills) from the bottom of the elevator.

About Todd

Deb and I have been married for 34 years and presently live in Tuscaloosa Alabama. Deb grew up in Atlanta and I grew up in Tennessee after my parents moved from Tuscaloosa. We have two wonderful boys I am very proud of.

Todd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Todd chose Gulf Shores

It has always been our goal to own a condo on the beach. Our dream has come true. We chose this condo due to its location and decorating done by the previous owner. It is a beautiful unit with a pool and right on the beach. What more can you ask for.

What makes this condo unique

The balcony has a great view of the beach. Even though we spend little time inside the unit, the decorating in the unit is outstanding. Deb has made comments several times on how well she sleeps at the beach. A truly relaxing atmosphere is what this unit is about.

Excellent beach proximity, clean unit, smooth visit

  • 5 of 5

Great view of both beach and town. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of space. Beach is right there, parking was easy, and you are close to shops in town. Couldn’t have asked for a better place for our beach trip. Perfect!

Family Friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The location is great if you have little kids. It is on the beach so you walk through the lobby to get there! You do have to pay for parking for this location. Spots are also limited during popular season times. Besides that it was a great condo experience. It was very clean and spacious!

this property was more impressive than the photos gave it credit for!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this complex many times in the past but never with a private owner. Our experience was outstanding!! The unit is very clean and nicely decorated. Plenty of room for my husband and I and my daughter’s family (4 adults and 2 children). Walking distance to all of our favorite eateries and shopping. Took the kids to nearby Foley to the OWA amusement park. They had a blast. Great memories were made. Thanks again to the Phares for an awesome vacation.
