About Michael Woodhall

My daughter and I moved into this condo unit when she was 2 years old. We lived here for 7 years. I renovated the unit to make it comfortable to live in year round or one week at a time! Everything is new, easy to use, and easy to clean. New AC/heat, new appliances, new washer/dryer. Wall was moved in master bedroom to allow a full size bathroom that two people can use at the same time. Maybe the only such master bathroom in Southwinds. This also added closet space in the master bedroom. I chose Southwinds because it is a family oriented complex and kid friendly. My daughter has made many friends with kids coming down during the summer. She learned to swim in the pool by trying to keep up with the 'big' kids while shunning my advice. Usually there are some kids at the pool or beach to make friends with. However, it never gets too crowded or noisy that you can't relax and have a romantic getaway.

Michael Woodhall purchased this condo in 2004

Why Michael Woodhall chose Atlantic Beach

Southwinds is at the quiet end of Atlantic Beach near Fort Macon. From E-5 it is a 100 yard walk to the beach. From Southwinds beach, to the left is a 200 yard walk to the bath houses at Fort Macon State Park with a full concession. Freezer pops and ice cream are still only 50 cents. Walk a mile further to Beaufort Inlet and Fort Macon - the actual Civil War brick fort that is full of cannons and reenactments. Friday night concerts are held in Fort Macon during the summer. During the day, bunny rabbits run across the front lawn. Sometimes large turtles crawl across the lawn. At night you may see red foxes trot across the Southwinds parking lot, but they are shy and run away quickly. Bring a flash light to the beach at sun down and look for ghost crabs along the edge of the surf. Sea turtles come to the area and lay their eggs during late Spring / early Summer nights and hatch during a full moon in the early Fall. Sea turtle nests are wired off and protected. Volunteers monitor the nests close to hatch time and the public can watch the turtles hatch if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time.

What makes this condo unique

From Southwinds beach, to the right is a two mile walk to the Oceana Pier, the Atlantic Beach circle and main public beach. Amos Mosquito's Restaurant is only half a mile down the road from Southwinds, with other restaurants just a little further down the road.

Awesome Condo in Great Location at AB

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this condo for Labor Day weekend and had a great vacation. Michael was easy to get in touch with and very responsive to emails and texts. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and the condo was perfect for our family's needs. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for quiet, family friendly place to stay at Atlantic Beach!

Finished off the week with this cozy place!

  • 4 of 5

I was staying at another condo and they didn't have it available for the whole entire time I wanted to stay. Mike went above and beyond to make sure I could stay at his place. He is very friendly, personable and communicates great! I love his condo and it was decorated. There were also little treasures from other guests around that made it worth extra pool noodles, pancake syrup, things like that.

Very nice, clean, comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and comfortable. The layout of the bedrooms and beds worked out well for our family. It's located in a great area, convenient to everything. A short walk to the beach, but with our gang, we decided to drive around and park closer to the beach. We enjoyed having that option here. Mike was very easy to work with and friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

Awesome experience at AB!!!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here, it was the perfect amount of space for us! Awesome to have access to 2 pools and the beach. The condo was spotless and the entire condo community was VERY well maintained! We stayed on a holiday weekend (memorial day), thought AB would be crowded - it was so wonderful! Not crowded at all and we had the perfect family vacation for our family of 3 (tall, snoring husband slept in the king bed; mom and toddler in the "kid room" - was perfect of us!!!). Interactions w/ the owner were always easy and friendly, he was available via phone, email, the booking app, etc - just awesome!! Would highly recommend and def stay again! Thanks Michael!!!
