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. Two of the bathrooms are renovated with marble showers.

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, marble showers, and new cabinet doors. Someone who loves it as much as I do.

Nancy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Nancy chose Gulf Shores

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!

Beautiful condo and location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location, beach access and the balcony was a family favorite! We started our mornings on the balcony with coffee and breakfast. And ended our nights with a nightcap, moonlight and the sounds of the waves!

The 3 bathrooms were quite handy with 5 of us staying and coming in from the beach/pool. Much less time to get showered and ready for dinner.

We were in walking distance of a lot of places, but since my mom was with us, we drove which was convenient as well!

Definitely someplace my husband and I would love to come stay again.

Thank you Nancy for your hospitality! We hope to plan a trip there again soon!!!

Beautiful Condo and -----

  • 5 of 5

location, view and Owner is very nice to work with. The first thing we noticed is how clean the unit was, and then how well it is furnished. Gave it and the Owner a 5 star rating, and would go six if possible. We have stayed there twice, and have already rented again for 2019. Nick

The condo was clean, comfortable, and stocked with everything we needed. Perfect location on the beach. From our balcony we watched the dolphins and manna rays swimming.

Great choice

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this location. Everything with the room and check in was so organized and clean. The beach is so convenient and you're right in town close to whatever you want to do. Our only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer.
