Thanks for having a look at our beach front condo located in Tropical Winds Condos, Gulf Shores, AL!
To describe our condo in a few words: :-)
FIRST & FOREMOST - Numerous guests have told us what sets us apart from other owners & rental companies is our communication, & our efforts to make your beach vacation go as smoothly as possible! We'll keep you informed via emails so you won't have to set up any of your own reminders except the dates of your vacation! We really do treat our condo like our second home, & we hope you will do the same.
1 - Our condo is located directly on the beach, not a side view of the Gulf & not across the street! You are only about 60 steps from our condo's door to the gorgeous white Gulf sand & the Gulf of Mexico!!
2 - Our Condo has 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths with fantastic views of the Gulf from our living area, dining area, kitchen, & master bedroom, & it's fully furnished. Behind the nightstands in each bedroom is an electrical outlet that contains 2 USB ports to charge your cell phones - we know you want your cells always ready for use!
3 - Our condo has keyless entry - you will be able to set your own 3-6 digit code to open our condo's door - no keys to carry around!
4 - Recently we purchased a bright blue & white counter height table & 4 chairs so you can easily see the Gulf over the railing on our balcony! (See a pic here on our VRBO site.)
5 - We have 3 Smart, flat screen TV's with Blu-Ray DVD players; 1 in the living area & 1 in each bedroom. Also, we have expanded channels including SEC & most are HD!
6 -Guests have left numerous books in our nook in the condo's bedroom hallway. Help yourself or leave your favorite for the next guest! There are also family games & kids' DVD's that we purchased or Guests left for others to enjoy located in our TV stand in the living room.
7 - The kitchen, all furniture, & mattresses were recently purchased new, including an upgraded mattress on the sofa bed (which we've slept on, & it's very comfortable!)
8 - We have a full size washer & dryer.
9 - Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. We also replaced the entire air conditioning/heating system recently. Each year we make upgrades & do renovations to keep our unit as it should be for all our Guests & for us! Our 2018 renovation was removing all the popcorn ceilings & replacing with knockdown ceilings as well as painting the entire condo. Our 2017 renovation was turning the master bathroom tub/shower into a walk in shower, but our 2nd bathroom still has the traditional bathtub.
10 - We are located on the lowest floor with units, the 2nd floor. So if you don't want to take the elevator to our condo, you can walk up 16 steps to our floor!
11 - You can pay for your vacation in our condo here on VRBO 480108 with your VIsa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Debit Card, or with E-Check (which is just like paying with your personal check.) We do not have access to any of your account numbers.
12 - We have fast internet secured with a password.
13 - THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GUESTS ALLOWED IN OUR CONDO AT ANY TIME IS 6. PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED. YOU MUST BE 25 YEARS OF AGE TO RENT OUT CONDO, & PROOF OF AGE IS REQUIRED.
14) Maximum 2 vehicles parked in Tropical Winds parking lot per reservation. Parking is on a first come, first serve basis. You must have a Guest Registration Certificate, (also called a Parking Pass,) in your vehicle at all times while parked in our parking lot that can easily be seen by our building security.
