Guestbook comments from the manager

Staying in Wind Drift, Unit 308 was a joy. The kitchen had a large amount of cupboard space and the pans, dishes, etc. were just what we needed. Our king bed had a brand new memory foam mattress, which we found to be extremely comfortable. A new vacuum cleaner was also provided. Caroline was available for any questions or needs we had. I highly recommend it. We’re going back again.

The location wad great and the unit was perfect!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay!! We had everything we needed without being in one of those GIANT condos where you can never find your door. Caroline was SUPER helpful and even kept the rain away for us! LOL We will definitely be back to Wind Drift for an escape from reality!

Great location and spacious

  • 3 of 5

The condo was clean. The location was wonderful. We loved having a place to dock our boat. There were a few things that we didn't like. First of all, we had a hard time getting hot water to come on in both bathrooms. They said there would be one roll of paper towels, but there wasn't any there. We also didn't like the 10am check out. Not to mention, they knocked on the door at 9:30 to see if we had left. There needs to be a black out blind in the first bedroom because the outside light shines in there. Also in that room, the A/C makes a terrible racket.

Owner's Response: Kelly, I'm so glad the condo was clean and you loved the location and the luxury of having the beach and a boat dock at the same complex. I put on all of the entry instructions to please contact me right away if there are any issues or concerns. Having no hot water is a concern and we would have liked to have known about this right away so we could address this issue. We are sorry about the toilet paper as we are supposed to put one roll in each bathroom, but we do ask our guests to go pick up a supply for their entire stay. The 10am check out is pretty standard with condos and hotels worldwide. Our cleaners need to have the time to clean before our afternoon checkin in these busy summer months.

Great destination for a peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as advertised, furniture, amenities, and location, but the pictures does not do it justice! The view from the balcony is spectacular! And it's the first set of condos as you cross over onto Perdido Key, which leaves a long stretch of open beach. We picked the perfect time of year, no crowds, and everything was quite after 10pm. Some other aspects I didn't catch until our arrival, the parking has a security guard in afternoons/evenings. The complex has maintenance workers that keep the grounds clean. And by the way, all employees we met were very friendly. The condo itself was super clean and smelled like it too. We did have an issue with the 2 sets of keys not working properly, I emailed Ms. Caroline, she came as soon as possible with new sets. She also returned a second time with a new toaster, after we found the original one not working. She is very detailed, and will give you all of the information you could possibly need. She is also very pleasant to deal with. So, take it from me, for the amount of money we paid, it was the most incredible beach experience! I encourage you to stay at WindDrift condos, you too, will be pleasantly surprised!

Owner's Response: Angela, We are so happy to see this 5 star review and thank you for taking the time to be so detailed for our future guests to see. We strive to advertise our properties exactly how they are so our guests know exactly what they are walking in to. Wind Drift is truly one of the best condos on the beach for it's location and the long stretch of open beach to it's west. We are happy to help our guests with any issues that occur during their stay and thank you for your kind words. We hope you come back to see us next year!

Perfect location and view! Very clean and good furniture

  • 5 of 5

The view from this third floor unit was perfect! And since this is a condo at the end of a small stretch and then open space, the beach was wide open and plenty of room. The condo was very clean, well furnished, and overall a great value for our money. The only issue we had was getting the living room TV to work but we just watched movies instead and that was perfect since we were rarely in the room. This is someplace I would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Olivia, We are happy to hear that the 3rd floor view was perfect and that you loved the private beach that Wind Drift has to offer our guests. It's truly the place to relax and enjoy some down time. I'm sorry to hear about the TV not working properly and I would have gladly had someone over to take care of that issue if you would have called. I urge all of our guests to call us if there are any issues or concerns in the condo and we are happy to help in anyway we can. I'm happy to hear that the TV was just a minor issue and that you will definitely come and stay with us again! We love all of our return renters and please remind me next year that you are returning!

Unit fine, cleaning needs work!

  • 2 of 5

Unit itself is nice but the fridge reeked of fish smell left from another visit rendering the fridge ( and freezer- ice!) useless. If you opened the fridge, the entire unit smelled fishy. Also unable to get the tvs to work. When we accessed with the remote we got no signal message. No instructions were available to solve that riddle. Balcony furniture is dirty and needs cleaning. At checking we noticed pool work was being done and were told that the pool was closed. Another was available but not beachside, so no waves in the background. In general a disappointing stay at the beach. Will probably go through an agent in the future where maintenance and cleaning issues can be addressed. The fridge needs a good cleaning as the fish smell is overwhelming!

Owner's Response: Dear Dianne, When your balance is paid and you receive your entry instructions the following is written in big bold letters below: ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS: PLEASE LET US KNOW OF ANY REPAIRS, DAMAGES OR CLEANING ISSUES THAT YOU SEE IN THE CONDO THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED RIGHT AWAY. Please notify Caroline and my cell and email are provided. You never picked up the phone to call me to let me know of these issues. They would have been addressed right away if we would have known about this. A fishy smell is something that we would like to know right away and I'm so sorry I wasn't aware of this during your stay. I have contacted the cleaning company about the smell and the balcony furniture. I do apologize for the pool being in renovation during your stay. It was supposed to be complete before the first of May, but all the rain had things delayed. I hate to see that this review was never about your relaxing time at the beach and how wonderful our May weather was this year. You went through an agent, but no agent would know of these concerns if they are never expressed. Again, I apologize for these inconveniences, but think about letting your rental company know of any concerns in your future stays. You must speak to be heard!

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The condo was beautiful and conveniently located. The condo had everything that we needed and the deck was very large and had a beautiful view. The only complaints that I have is that the living room furniture was more like patio furniture (not comfortable) and the beds were VERY UNCOMFORTABLE. If we were just staying one night then we could have probably dealt with it but staying three nights with little sleep due to this was a little too much.
