About the property

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

From this redecorated top floor beachfront condo, you can hear the waves rolling onto the beautiful white sand beaches just feet away. Schools of dolphins and flocks of pelicans are among the vibrant ecosystem you can appreciate from the balcony or beach.

Our comfortable 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo is tastefully furnished and equipped with all of the amenities you expect. Linens, bath towels, utensils and other essentials are provided so that you can just make yourself at home the moment you arrive.

This condo has been recently renovated with tile in the kitchen and living room, granite countertops, a new king size bed in the master bedroom, and new draperies and bedspreads.

Besides the beach, only steps away from the building, you can enjoy the pool or nearby shopping, watersports, or miniature golf. Being close enough to the center of town allows easy access to some of the best restaurants on the beach. But you are far enough from the city so that its noise is never heard.

This is OUR home-away-from-home, and we hope that you find as much pleasure as we do in its beauty and relaxation.

About Nancy

We bought a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo at Tropical Winds in 2006. After fixing it up, we enjoyed about 9 years there. Then we decided that we wanted a condo big enough to host friends and our grandchildren. I wanted to stay on the top floor because the view is so magnificent. Luckily, we found out that our sweet neighbors were planning on selling. So, in October of 2015, we sold our smaller unit and bought our new condo. We love being a corner unit so we can see sunrises in the east, as well as the blue gulf to the south and the west.

This condo, just like our last one, is truly our "home away from home." We tastefully decorate it with custom-made curtains, furnish it with everything we need to make it a comfortable home. However, that means that we are looking for guests who will treat our condo as if it were their own. Someone who will be gentle with granite counters and new cabinet doors. Someone who loves it as much as I do.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Nancy chose Alabama

We chose to buy our vacation home at Tropical Winds in Gulf Shores because this area has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with incomparable white 'sugar' sands. The nearly constant gulf breeze makes a day at the beach pleasant even on the hottest days and the water is a perfect temperature for recreation throughout the summer and fall. The broad expanse of beachfront at this building assures that you will not be crowded.

Our 32-unit condo building is kept clean and well maintained by very caring, friendly and attentive owners, so we feel like we are part of a community.

What makes this condo unique

We spend most of our time relaxing and playing on the gulf beach. If we have our grandchild, we go to the zoo, waterpark, putt-putt, state park, or toy stores. There are many activities that you can pay for (like golf, boating or scuba diving).

Evenings are great! We love the food down here. I eat fresh seafood everyday, but my husband is a vegetarian and finds great offerings at any of my favorite restaurants. On rare occasions, we drive over to Orange Beach, Point Clear or Fairhope for a different atmosphere.

Everyday, rain or shine, is relaxing yet renewing. I treasure my time at the beach!

coudn't have been any better

  • 5 of 5

Nancy home at the beach was perfect ! Rooms were large and comfortable. Being on the top floor was like nothing else was there except you. Nancy's home is central to anything and you could walk to anywhere, being directly on the beach. Central to all that's going on, you couldn't miss anything. My wife and traveling companions even saw the Blue Angels on a fly by. They are based close by and what a treat to see them practice.

It was wonderful working with Nancy, very informative, and all responses were fast, and concerns addressed quickly. If I was able to go back again (and I hope to) I would definitely get in touch with Nancy.

THANKS FOR EVERYTHING NANCY, BILL

IT COULDN'T GET ANY BETTER

  • 5 of 5

Nancy's unit was more than we expected! With the perfect location to everything. You can walk the beach to anywhere, or just sit on the balcony with your favorite drink, favorite significant other, and just take it all in !!

The building is nice and clean, the rooms are more than spacious, and being on the top floor was wonderful.

Nancy was more than friendly to work with, answered all inquiries in lighting fast time. It was a real pleasure to work with her. Thank you for an opportunity we always treasure.

The condo was terrific! It was beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed many cups of coffee on the amazing balcony. We even got to see dolphins playing in the water one morning. Amazing!! The owners made the rental process very easy. The building was well maintained and everyone was friendly and very helpful. We hope to be able to return soon!

Gorgeous beach view!

  • 5 of 5

The beach views from the balcony were fantastic!!! Being on the top floor made for great sunrises and sunsets. The condo was extremely clean and the owners made it so very easy for us to book even when I requested to use their condo less than a week before we were heading down to enjoy the beach. The condo was very reasonably priced, as well. Everyone in the building was welcoming. We are considering coming back soon! Thank you for letting us stay in your condo. We are telling all our friends to call you if they are ever in Gulf Shores!
