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 Alabama

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.

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!

Lovely and well decorated

  • 4 of 5

Well, condo was one of the positive sides of our mini-vacation since it rained three out of five days (counting arrival & departure days). The condo was clean & well maintained. Perfect location to beach and other attractions as well as restaurants. We would book the conod again when we go back (probably not in August-seems to be the rainy season).

Best Condo in all of Orange Beach!!!!

  • 5 of 5

On a scale of 1 - 10, this condo is an 11. The owners are fantastic to work with. Their communication, attention to detail and their "customer always comes first" attitude are outstanding. The spacious condo is newly updated and was well equipped to handle our 6 guests. The condo is well decorated with all the comforts of home! My wife absolutely loved the very well-stocked kitchen and large refrigerator. One of the best features was the wet bar and the automatic ice maker underneath the bar- - -we saved allot of money by not having to run to the store to buy ice all the time for our coolers. The living room and bedrooms all had access to the huge wrap-a-round balcony. The views were spectacular, especially at dusk. There is plenty of closet and drawer storage and the memory foam mattresses were amazing!

The condo is centrally located in Orange Beach with shopping, restaurants, entertainment and grocery stores all within walking distance. We BBQ-ed several times at the grills next to the pool (the condo comes equipped with all the grilling tools and platters that you need) and we cooked large breakfasts and lunches in the kitchen- - -we could not have asked for anything better. This condo HAS IT ALL!!!!

We highly recommend this condo for anyone looking to vacation in the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area. Don't wait too long to book your next vacation as this condo gets snapped up quickly!

We would like to thank Katherine and her fellow owners for sharing their "little piece of heaven" with our family.
