About Katherine Bethune

My wife and I (Chad & Sarah Heiser) and family members Ed and Katherine Bethune purchased this condo in July of 2012. We have already built some amazing experiences and memories in the Orange Beach area and decided we wanted our very own little piece of beach front paradise. My wife and I live in St. Francisville, LA and Kat and ED live in Newton, Mississippi. We visit often and are always looking for new suggestions to improve our place!

Why Katherine Bethune chose Orange Beach

We choose Windward Pointe because of its central location to everything in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. We also liked the fact that it is located directly on the beach with easy access to all the eateries and attractions in the area. The complex has many added amenities such as the indoor/outdoor pools, indoor jacuzzi, sauna, tennis courts, basketball court, and exercise facility.

What makes this condo unique

It's a corner unit with a large wrap around balcony that boasts wonderful views of the beach and gulf. There is balcony access from all three bedrooms and the living room.

My husband & I always look forward to our summer vacations in Orange Beach. We've enjoyed attending the Island Church, eating at Brick & Spoon, Bravo Tacos, Louisiana Lagniappe, The Gulf, and Shipps Harbor Grill, and activities of Beach Bike Rentals and offshore fishing with Captain Troy of Distractions, adding in this wonderful condo from Mrs. Katherine- we can say it totally feels like a second home!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Beautifully decorated with a refreshing beach vibe, very comfortable furniture and beds, equipped with everything we needed to cook and enjoy meals together, awesome wrap around large patio with access from every room to enjoy the refreshing beach front views and wave sounds and amazing view of the surrounding area and the Wharf fireworks! This trip our three month old baby, my mother, father & sister joined us- it was perfect!!! Soo much room, felt spacious with everyone having their own roomand cozy at the same time! We especially enjoyed the huge patio, being able to rock our baby to sleep on the comfy, shaded & breezy patio, eating outside to enjoy the waves without all the sand, & the ice machine!!! My only suggestion is to have a later checkout on day of departure, 10am was a bit too early for us especially in order to clean up a bit/ trying to squeeze every minute out of our short weekend stay. The overall feel of the condo was amazing, we miss it already and are excited to return asap! Thank You Mrs. Katherine!!!

Very nice!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice condo with a great balcony and view! Plenty of furniture to sit out and enjoy. Beautifully updated kitchen and appliances were all great and the ice maker was awesome! (Just needed a good cleaning first.) Bedrooms were nice with comfortable mattresses. The bed in the master does need better sheets that fit the mattress properly. Living room had comfortable furniture and there was plenty of seating for meals in the dining area and breakfast bar. Great TV in the living room and cable in all the bedrooms as well. It was awesome to have a full size washer and dryer too!

Both pools and the hot tub were very nice as well as the beach access. Chair, umbrella and game rental right on the beach if you need it too.

There were only a few things less than ideal, such as outlets not working in either bathroom, loose faucet in the hall bath, the sliding door in front of the washer/ ice machine was difficult to move and came off the track quite a bit.

Most amazing week EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from June 3, 2017 - June 10. The weather was incredible and this condo was perfect for our family of 6. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms suited our family. All rooms were comfortable and clean. The balcony was our favorite! We were able to watch the fireworks from the WHARF on the wrap around balcony! Apparently they have fireworks at the Wharf every Thursday. We got our wine and chairs and enjoyed the show from miles away. A birds-eye view.

The condo was spacious and the views were spectacular! The built in ice maker was perfect for drinks going to the beach. The beach area got a little crowded so we just made sure we were down there early claiming our spot. We took full advantage of the small fenced in area on the beach to store our beach chairs. Saved us lots of headaches of carrying chairs to and from the condo. Also saved us from sand everywhere in the condo.

Location is great too. Walmart market is close (but avoid at all costs on Saturday and Sunday!! Crazy crowded.) We recommend eating at Cobalt's and Doc's! Super great seafood at both! Cobalt's has a GREAT vibe.

We will book again for next year! The owner is so accomodating too!

Thank you so much for renting out your condo. We had a restful and stress-free vacation!
