About Melissa Brisendine

Orange Beach has been our family's favorite since long before it was the lively vacation spot it is today. We live only a few hours away in Birmingham and enjoy getting away and spending time on the coast.

Melissa Brisendine purchased this condo in 2014

Why Melissa Brisendine chose Alabama

We wanted a condo on the beach with a private balcony. We looked at many larger properties but fell in love with Four Winds because it was a smaller complex and less crowded on the beach.

What makes this condo unique

Because Four Winds is a small property, it is more like a beach house than a resort. We love to sit on the balcony, enjoy the view and relax. We do not have some of the amenities of newer larger properties but we love our little home.

Extremely nice condo which made our vacation perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very nice with a large master bedroom and bath. The second bedroom is spacious and it also has a pull out sofa and built in bed in the hall. The view is spectacular. It is a small building which I enjoyed the most. There was never a wait for the elevator and the pool and hot tub were never crowded, most of the time only 1 or 2 other people. Never had an issue with parking , plenty of parking for the property. It is stocked with all essentials of dishes and utensils you would ever need. The owner is extremely nice, even called to check on us during a storm that came in. If you want a perfect vacation place, this is it! Highly recommend it.

First time in Orange Beach - exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO to rent and we got exactly what we expected. The owner was wonderful to work with directly and gave us all the information we needed. The condo looks exactly like the pictures. They provided more than enough bath towels and enough supplies for our stay. The chairs on the balcony were perfect and the view is incredible. We saw several dolphins swimming up and down the coast. We spent most of our time at the pool and never had a problem with the lounge chairs. We found most people cycle their time at the pool anyway. It was nice to see the same families down there during our stay. Parking was also great and we had no wait times for an elevator. There are even several carts to use to load/unload cars. While we didn't need them, we were also excited to see so many games for a rainy day! :)

Some things outside the control of the condo itself were disappointing - people who don't respect the condo rules and don't mind their kids. I know that happens everywhere but some people just don't care about anyone but themselves. And as everyone has noticed, that trash chute and trash pickup were horrendous. The pickups were inconsistent, sometimes coming at 4:30 am! Again, people dropping trash at all hours was annoying when the sign clearly asks guests not to drop between 10:00 pm and 8:00 am. Oh I said some people just don't care. There is also construction going on next door that starts about 7:00 am.

Overall, we would definitely stay here again. The location was great, we never left OB because so much was close to the condo. Thanks for providing us with such a great experience!

We love Four Winds because it is small and laid back. Our condo was very clean, and it was a plus to have beach chairs included. See you next year!!

Great views!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great unit for a small group. The furnishings were very nice and it comes with 4 low seat beach chairs. It's nice that there are only 4 units per floor and 36 total. No issues with waiting on the elevator. There are plenty of carts to help with loading and unloading your car. We really enjoyed our stay! The only complaint is that the trash chute is located outside the master bedroom and the garbage truck comes at 5:00am on that end of the building. It is very loud. A unit on the east side would not have that issue. Overall, we loved this complex!

Owner's Response: So glad that your stay at Four Winds was pleasant. We love being in a small complex so near the water where the beach isn't as crowded. Wish I could do something about that garbage pick up so early in the mornings - it bothers us also!

Wonderful Vacation Stay

  • 5 of 5

Property was an excellent place to stay. Tucked between two larger properties but still had a great view. Easy to get in and out off parking. The condo was clean and supplied with all we needed. Easy access to beach. Great experience. Thanks!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented condos before all over the US and Caribbean. I believe this is the nicest, cleanest and best equipped one we've stayed in. It was so clean and had everything you could possible need/want while staying in Orange Beach. It was easy to find (look for the smaller condo between two larger complexes). As the previous reviewer stated, it was very quiet. They cater to couples and families, not "spring breakers". You can hear people splashing in the pool below, but also the sound of the ocean waves. And the view is perfect. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Also, Melissa, the owner is so easy to work with. There is a lock box on the door for which you will get a code once you book. So much easier than having to pick up and return a key somewhere.
