About the property

Seasonally Heated Pool and Hot Tub, Fitness Room, Very Nice, Awesome Views!

DIRECT BEACHFRONT LUXURY!!! Windemere is one of the newer developments in beautiful Perdido Key, Florida. This amazing penthouse level vacation property is professionally decorated, very spacious featuring 10’ ceilings, and arguably, the most gorgeous view on the Gulf.

Although our listing is on VRBO, we DO NOT accept payments through the VRBO online booking service, as we have a contract with a professional realty management company in Perdido Key who collects payments for us.

Please be aware that VRBO is implementing a new service fee that is chargeable to travelers (you) when their online booking service is utilized. This fee will range from 5.5% to 9% and is added on top of any damage deposit/protection fees, clean-up fees, and Florida taxes that are normally charged. AVOID THE VRBO SERVICE FEE and save money on your travel by booking with us. See our 5 STAR REVIEWS and book with confidence! Now more about our property:

We have 2.5 bedrooms (Master, Guest, and a separate 3rd smaller bedroom (i am calling this a half bedroom), and although the sofa is not a sleeper, a 7th person could easily sleep there if you're trying to accommodate an extra person. Also, the LR is plenty spacious enough to accommodate an inflatable air mattress or two if you would like to sleep more than 7 people.

You'll enjoy the keyless entry system - no need to worry about lost keys! You are also entitled to use the owner's assigned covered parking space located right by three (3) high speed elevators that will quickly take you to the 14th floor. Our condo has a washer and dryer in the unit providing convenient laundry access, and FREE high speed internet.

If you compare, you will find that we offer very competitive rates for a penthouse level condo with the amenities that are offered. There simply are not that many of these types of units in the Gulf Coast region.

This beautifully decorated unit has tile throughout, plush carpet in all bedrooms, and Gulf facing sliding glass doors from both the Master Suite and Living Area leading out to a large private balcony. The balcony provides the perfect setting for a peaceful meal or morning cup of coffee while listening to the waves crash or watching the dolphins play. Relax in the chaise lounge chairs, take in that favorite book, and lose yourself as you enjoy the views of the crystal white sand, blue/emerald green waters, and the feel of the gentle Gulf breeze. You will not see your neighbors from the balcony, as it offers complete privacy.

The spacious Living Area features beautiful décor, a large 55” LCD TV, DVD player, and plenty of comfortable seating. We also offer FREE premium channel packages to our travelers. Enjoy your favorite movies on HBO, Starz, Encore, or choose from hundreds of FREE On Demand selections.

Relax in the Master Suite complete with a 46” LCD TV and queen size bed with new mattress. This well-appointed Master has dramatic views of the Gulf of Mexico and its own separate balcony access. The private Master Bath includes a large Jacuzzi whirlpool tub with cultured marble tub surrounds, double vanity with cultured marble top, and a walk-in shower.

The guest bedroom features two twin size beds with new mattresses, 32” LCD TV, DVD player, and adjacent full bath.

The third bedroom is what I term a half bedroom because it is smaller than the other two bedrooms. This room features the twin size bunk bed and chest of drawers for storage. It is a very comfortable room to get a good night's sleep, and the door can be closed if privacy and quiet is needed.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to cook, serve, and entertain family and friends. Plenty of seating is available at the breakfast bar and dining area.

Our guests enjoy a seasonally heated pool with sundeck, hot tub, automatic ice machine, and fitness room on the third level overlooking the Gulf. There is a very nice grilling area on the ground level overlooking the Gulf, beach walkover, and parking for up to 2 vehicles.

Windemere is conveniently located between Pensacola, FL and Orange Beach, AL in Perdido Key, FL. Also, in the unlikely event that any maintenance issue would arise, we have contracted a professional realty management company located approximately one mile away that is available 24/7. Perdido Key beaches have been rated among the TOP 5 island beaches by Conde Nast Traveler, and when you arrive here, you’ll understand why.

There are several great restaurants, souvenir shops, and other shopping options nearby. Grocery stores are about one mile away, and there is a Wal-Mart and several golf courses in close proximity to challenge the most avid golfer. Enjoy shopping at Tanger Outlet Mall, or you can make a short drive to The Wharf where you will find great shopping, restaurants, concerts, laser light shows at night, and the Rave Motion Picture movie theater.

Checking rates is easy. Simply enter your arrival and departure dates for an instant quote. The price quoted includes ALL fees and taxes. As mentioned earlier, since we are contracted with a local professional realty management company in Perdido Key who collects payments for us, we do not use the Homeaway/VRBO option to process payments saving our travelers money.

Give yourself that well deserved vacation or getaway. See the reviews and book your stay with confidence today!

About Gene and Karen LeJeune

The Gulf coast is our favorite place to relax, unwind, and spend time with family and friends. We oftentimes make the drive from Louisiana to enjoy our home away from home...we are truly blessed to own a place that, arguably, is one of the nicest places in Perdido Key.

Gene and Karen LeJeune purchased this condo in 2014

Why Gene and Karen LeJeune chose Perdido Key

We've been vacationing in the area for nearly 30 years. Windemere is the second condo that we've purchased in Perdido Key, and there's a reason why we purchased here oriented, quiet, non-crowded, but a really short drive to Orange Beach, Gulf Shores, and Pensacola if you want to get 'in the mix.' This complex offers everything needed to enjoy stays on the Gulf Coast, both long and short. The bunk room can serve as a 3rd bedroom for either adults or children...a very usable space. We really like the open feel created by the 10' ceilings, jacuzzi whirlpool tub, separate shower, and large private balcony. Simply put, Perdido Key, or as the locals call it, 'The Key' is still a small island atmosphere offering its guests peace, quiet, and a true appreciation for what once was.......

What makes this condo unique

* Jellyfish Bar, souvenir shop, and other shopping nearby

* Visit the nearby Naval Aviation Museum

* Catch the Blue Angels air shows

* Gulf Island National Seashore on Perdido Key offers a natural retreat for biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, and bird watching

* Charter a boat for dolphin watching or fishing at one of the nearby marinas

* Rent a pontoon boat about 1/2 mile away and enjoy the day island hopping and viewing the beautiful homes on Ono Island.

* Enjoy the area events and festivals such as the Mullet Toss, Hangout Music Festival, Oyster Cook-off, Shrimp Festival, and Frank Brown International Song Writer’s Festival.

* Lillian's Pizza is directly across the street and the Shrimp Basket is a 1/2 mile away

* Publix and WInn Dixie are about 1 mile away

* Target and WalMart are about 7 miles away

* Get the best Cuban Sandwich you've ever eaten at Hub Staceys in Perdido Key

* So many places, so little time

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

Hi Gene and Karen,

I just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful Perdido Key Condo March 15th through March 22nd. Everything in your condo was as described and it was more spacious than we experienced in other Perdido Key Condos in the past. The view was spectacular from the balcony and the front entry. We loved sitting on the lounge chairs on the balcony and watching the dolphins and the beach activity. We will certainly recommend your unit to anyone we know that is visiting the area. Thanks again for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. We feel blessed to be the owner of Windemere 1402. It is especially nice to know that others who come to vacation appreciate our place, (especially when it is someone who is familiar with other properties in the Perdido Key area). Thank you for taking the time to write a review. This helps people who are considering vacationing in the Perdido Key area an opportunity to learn more about our property from an independent perspective. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and certainly look forward to future visits! Best, Gene and Karen

Vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience at Perdido Key. We loved the laid back atmosphere and the friendly people of Perdido Key. The phone app was awesome. We had a great time and the condo was awesome. It exceeded our expectations. We loved the view, the amenities, the security, the beach, the easy accessibility to the beach. The grandkids loved the pool. We loved staying right on the beach. The price for your unit was so reasonable considering other places we have visited in the past. So glad we found your unit on VRBO. On departure one of the employees of Windemere even sprayed off out windows. We ate at Sunset Grill, Up Stacy and The Crabtrap. Food was soooo good.

Owner's Response: We're very happy that you chose our property in Perdido Key for your vacation getaway. The quality of our condo and amenities at Windemere combine to offer one of the best values on the Emerald Coast. It is always great to hear or read from those who stay at our home away from home in Perdido Key, as one can quickly understand why we love the area so much. We're also happy that you mentioned Hub Stacey's. One of our favorite "hole-in-the-wall" local places to eat overlooking the boat launch at Big Lagoon. If you ever return to the restaurant, I recommend The Cuban.....It is, by far, the best Cuban sandwich we've ever eaten anywhere! Again, thank you for the great review, and we look forward to hearing from you in the future when you make plans to visit The Key. Gene and Karen

We come to the gulf every spring and have stayed in quite a variety of different condo's. We'Ve had for the most part a great time every year and this year was no exception. In fact this was near the top as far as property and dealing with the owners and rental company. We had absolutely no issue's and condo had everything a family would ever need. The price was very reasonable for this condo which is one of the nicer properties we've stayed at and we will be definately looking to come back again!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind words. We continually look for ways to improve our property to keep it fresh and updated to make our visitor's stays as appealing and nice as we can. We also try to keep our prices competitive so that families can have the opportunity to visit our home away from home. We're not always the least expensive, but for what one gets with our property, it is a great value. Thank you again, and we look forward to hearing from you for future visits! Gene and Karen

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite vacations. Everything was perfect. The set up of the condo was great for our family. We loved having a beach-facing balcony and also being right on the beach. The condo was very comfortable and also very nice. Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the kind words. When we looked at condos in the Perdido Key area, this one ended up at the top of our list. The views are incredible from the penthouse level, and size of the unit and professional decor really sold us. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay, and if you ever decide to return to "The Key," please keep us in mind, as we love our repeat guests! Gene and Karen

We were a bit skeptical about renting a personal property online but WOW! The condo was gorgeous, clean, tasteful and SO convenient! The beach and pool area were amazingly beautiful and everyone was friendly. We are already talking about reserving for next year. Thank you so much for opening your lovely home to us. We WILL be back!!

Last minute, get our sanity back trip!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in several different condos all along the gulf coast and we thought this one was one of the best. The layout was perfect and very spacious. We loved that the master bedroom had sliding doors that went out to the balcony that overlooked the ocean. We also saw dolphins every single morning as we drank our coffee. We cooked in the kitchen everyday and used the grills on the premises. It had a shorter walk to get down to the edge of the beach/water than some of the other condos we've stayed, and also the pool was higher(not ground level) so when we were at the pool it also seemed like you overlooked the ocean. Very peaceful and quiet and would definitely go back. Even had the nicest maintenance guy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We work very hard to provide our guests with all that is needed to make their vacation enjoyable and relaxing. The pool and hot tub set-up at Windemere is unique, as it is located on the third level overlooking the beach (along with the men's and women's restrooms, ice machine, fitness room, and main lobby). This does provide for a magnificent overlook. Thank you again, and we look forward to meeting your future travel needs. Gene and Karen
