Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 7

The perfect setting for a quiet, family getaway. This condo has a perfect view that makes you feel like you are floating just above the Gulf. Plus the location is isolated enough that you can feel like you are getting away from it all, but still be in the heart of Orange Beach. The infamous Florabama Lounge is right down the road and world class restaurants surround you. This is truly a fantastic setting in a great complex.

You will love the views in this two bedroom condo in Orange Beach. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo sits on 1st floor, just above the dunes, with a clear view of the Gulf of Mexico and boasts more than 1,000 square feet of space.

The unit sleeps up to 7 with a king in the master bedroom, a full and a twin bed in the second bedroom, plus a sleeper sofa in the living room. Interior appointments include washer and dryer, 3 televisions, a stereo, plus Egyptian Cotton linens.

Complex Amenities: Two outdoor pools and three lighted tennis courts.

Complex also offers first come, first served docking and boat and trailer storage across the street from the beach, at the condo's own dock. This is a very convenient amenity as most complexes don't allow you to store your boat or trailer. At Wind Drift it's welcomed, allowed and convenient.

This is your home-away-from-home with warmer weather and better views. So, stop searching and book your vacation today.

Reviewer Comments:

My family and I enjoyed our stay at Wind Drift. We went the week of July 4th and the beach was not overcrowded nor were the elevators. It is very convenient to restaurants and stores. When sitting on the balcony, it feels like you are sitting on the beach. Room was equipped with everything we needed including an ice maker.

Reviewer Comments:

I'll just go ahead and say I like things to be real nice. I have been going to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach for years. Sometimes condos can be old and in need of updating or repair. I can tell that THIS condo, however, has been maintained as well as updated. Kitchen is very nice--looks to be new granite countertops, nice clean appliances -- everything worked perfectly. Three coffee pots in case you're an addict. We felt right at home. This condo is on the first floor (ground floor is very bottom then first floor is one up). I'm unsure why the view is getting a bad report--we had a fantastic view of the beach. I stood on the beach and waved at my husband standing behind the kitchen counter and he waved back. The view is clear and beautiful. In addition, you'll only have one flight of stairs to climb if you decide not to take the elevator--which is doable for most everyone and quicker in most instances. Pool and beach access (across the wooden bridge thing) is approximately 30 seconds walking from the door of the condo (including the stairs). Pool was clean and clear, well maintained. It was nice to have a public men's & women's restroom down at the pool so we didn't have to come back to the room. Nice shaded area with picnic tables at the pool. We went last week of August, first week of September -- we had the beach to ourselves, weather was hot but not miserable like the hot Alabama heat can get. We will go back next next, hopefully to this same condo.

Reviewer Comments:

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Wind Drift. It was pretty full but yet not crowded at the same time. No fighting for a spot on the beach. The Condo had everything we needed. The king size bed could be more comfortable, but it wasn't terrible. I know there has been a debate over the view from the balcony. We loved it. We saw dolphins several mornings and could see the beach and water just fine. If you're after that high rise feeling then this isn't it. If you want the beach in your face it is. We used the stairs which is why I love lower levels. No stuffy elevators to wait on. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you ALBVR!

Reviewer Comments:

Always been a Destin family but tried Orange Beach this year and loved it. Less crowded in general and this condo was perfect. Everything we needed, clean and great location. Never realized how not being in a high rise really limits the who you have to share your beach with. And super short, easy drive to the more commercial area of Gulf Shores when wanted. Windswept is a steal!
