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.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The condo was beautiful and had everything you could possible need for your stay. The location was great. We were minutes from the shops and restaurants. The owner went above and beyond to keep us informed of the weather that was moving in. I could keep going on all the positive things about the owner and the condo itself. We loved the area so much that we are already planning our next vacation to Gulf Shores.

Everything was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The view was better than we expected, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed for cooking...even had spices! The beach is literally steps from the complex and Ike's Beach Service is on site to rent lounger sets. The beds were very comfortable, especially the master! No experience with the sleeper sofa so cannot provide a rating on that. Definitely plan to go back!

Perfect for a quick getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The outside of the building looks a little old and weathered, but this condo is very clean well decorated inside and had everything we needed for our stay (7 people). Plus it has a great view of the ocean from the balcony! The building has convenient beach access and proximity to The Hangout, restaurants, and shopping. Thank you!
