Met our needs!

  • 4 of 5

Wind Drift #301SE provided a large family room for three golfers to spread out. The furniture and scenery off the third floor balcony is great. We are returning to this unit next year which will make our third stay. The bath and kitchen need an upgrade but it is adequate for our needs. The extra ice maker is a nice addition. We would love to have more sports channels on the television in the family room. Good location to golf courses and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Gail, We are so glad to see you and your crew returning year after year. Last year we installed new tile throughout the condo, painted all the rooms and updated all the furniture. This year we put in an incredible built in bunk bed in the guest room and doing bathroom updates next year. One big renovation project a year is all we can handle! Glad you liked the ice maker and enjoyed the furniture and view from the balcony. See you next year!

Adequate for beach life. Best if have older children because of the railing issue stated below.

  • 3 of 5

The property is adequate for beach life. We have several small children in our family so we wanted something close to the beach and close to a pool. This condo offers both but no other amenities like work out room or playground area or a kiddie pool.

The condo could use a facelift with paint and more thorough cleaning between rentals.

The bathrooms need updated shower heads and extra sink in master. There was faux wood peeling off the wood cabinets.

We used the sofa bed and found lots of dust and other discoveries too. Would be nicer if bunk beds were offered and/or another queen bed. Only one TV with a DVD player and no TV in the third bedroom.

No hangers in closet sofuture guests must bring their own.

Kitchen well stocked with pots and pans but no omelette/egg pan.

We had a great time but our weather was good so we didn't stay in the condo much.

VERY IMPORTANT! The railings on the balcony are spaced wide. We were certain one of our children could slip through the railings so they were not allowed to be out there without an adult standing guard watching. Very anxiety provoking. Should have a netting like some of the condos have.

Owner's Response: Dear James, We are a small complex and our amenities are limited, but we have the greatest stretch of beach offering a quiet and private atmosphere that our guests love. This unit is undergoing renovations and the bathrooms are last on our list. New tile, new paint, new furniture and new bedding was installed last fall and just know that we are a work in progress having to stop and start around reservations. We are sorry to hear that the cleaning wasn’t up to par and I wish I would have known so I could have the cleaners back there to clean. I put on all the entry instructions to please contact me with any concerns or issues when you first arrive and I never heard anything from you during your stay. We put a detailed description with pictures on every page to let our guests know what they are getting. It sounds like you just chose the wrong condo. If you need bunk beds, a kiddie pool, a playground, a work out room, we have plenty of condos along the Alabama Coast to suit your needs.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Wind Drift 301. It's an ocean front apartment with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The bathrooms could use some updating, but the location of this condo trumped everything. It's across the Perdido bridge as you are headed to Florida, so it feels a little separated from the craziness, which we loved. The property manager, Caroline, was very responsive to any questions or issues we had (light bulbs that were out and a shower door that was wobbly). We loved seeing Dolphins almost every morning from our balcony, as well as watching a storm blow in one evening. Just an incredible view. It's on the 3rd floor, so getting to the condo was super easy, given the ease of the elevators. And getting to the beach was so simple...just through the pool area and you are seconds away from sand in your toes. We chose this condo because of the number of beds in the condo and the fact that it was ocean front. The location ended up being a huge bonus. The beaches never felt crowded and we were there in mid-June. Would definitely recommend, but would highly suggest some updating in the bathrooms! :-)

Owner's Response: Heather, We are so happy to hear that you loved staying at our condo and the bathroom renovations are next on our list. We just put in all new tile, new furniture and painted the entire condo so you get that comfortable, relaxing, beachy feeling right when you walk in the door. The location of this complex is truly why our guests keep returning year after year. I'm glad I could come handle the issues you had right away so you could enjoy everything this condo has to offer. We love that you found it so easy to get to the beach from your condo with such ease and we hope you come back to visit us next year.

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at this unit. It was wonderful! The unit is beautifully decorated. The rooms are nice size and the beds comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked with all kind of cooking utensils. The unit is very close to the ocean so it made sitting on the deck watching the sunrise and the sunset perfect. We even got to see the Blue Angels fly by. The staff we came in contact with were also friendly and helpful. The fact the condos are only 7 floors meant there were not crowds on the beach as well as the fact that next to the complex is a state park so there is plenty of open space. I would definitely recommend and I hope to stay at this unit again sometime. Thank you for a great stay.
