Within walking distance to the Hangout, countless other restaurants, convenient store and souvenir stores. The unit itself was tastefully decorated with a large TV. Very clean. The staff was extremely helpful. We drove, less than 5 minutes, to Waterville and road all the go-carts. The water attractions were closed for the season. LuLu's was a great place to eat right on the Marina.
This property is nothing fancy but it was clean. Our 2 bedroom unit was a lot smaller than it looked in the photos. The people working at the property were very friendly and helpful.
From the beautiful views off the balcony, to the automated window shades, to the fully stocked kitchen, this condo had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. We didn't want to eat out for every meal, so having such a beautiful kitchen made cooking a breeze. Additionally, the condo is located in a fabulous location, so once we parked we were essentially able to walk to wherever we wanted to go. Gulf Shores has a ton to do, and the unit is in such a great location that we were really able to take advantage of that. I don't think all of the other activities beat the beauty of the beach, though, which you could easily enjoy sitting on the balcony. Such a great trip; I would definitely come back to this unit.
Our stay was over memorial day weekend and everything worked out so great. The condo is beautifully decorated, there is a fully operable kitchen, all the beds are plush and comfortable with plenty of pillows, there are three huge TVs, and also an umbrella available for beaching. The shore is right outside the condo, only about a 3 minute walk away. Other than the condo itself the place is very centrally located, one can walk to close by restaurants (The Hangout is awesome - free concerts!), souvenir stores, ice cream shops, etc. If you drive just a tiny bit of ways there's go-karting, zip lining, and tanger outlet shopping very close by as well - and the water park Waterville too, if the beach isn't enough :)
We were shocked at the upgrades and the entire unit! We come to Gulf Shores for all our family vacations and try to stay in Inland Winds East every time. We used this unit one other time in our travels and were so surprised at the upgrades. The view has always been beautiful. All of the local attractions were opening and the location of the building makes the use of an automobile unnecessary.
After a day on the beach and after dinner at the hangout, we were even more surprised at the ability to check out a Play Station 3 for the kids. This added surprise was a big hit with the kids…And on the huge TV in the living room; we all had a great time!
We will definitely attempt to book this unit on all our stays! The office personnel were as friendly and helpful as anyone would ever expect.
This was one of our most memorable get-a-ways in a long time.
