Welcome to WineDown, our home away from home in Gulf Shores. Our home is a 4 bedroom 3 bath lower unit retreat is just steps away from the beautiful sugar white sand and clear, calm water of the Gulf of Mexico. Located in the West Beach area, we are in a quiet part of town but just a short 4-5 minute drive from the Hangout and all Gulf Shores has to offer.
Enjoy beautiful views of the Gulf from our spacious deck. The beach is located just 150 yards from our front door. The views continue inside the home where you can see the water from the living room, dining room and even while mixing drinks in the kitchen!
Our living room is the perfect place for the family to relax and enjoy the view. A 50 inch tv makes this a perfect room to watch a movie or catch the game. The couch pulls out for an extra sleeping space. The dining table is the perfect spot to enjoy a family meal or play a game or do a puzzle.
A spacious master suite includes a king bed, 40 inch tv, large master bath with his and her vanities, separate shower and tub and walk in closet. Two other bedrooms provide comfortable queen size beds with the 4th bedroom set up with bunk beds, full on the bottom and twin on the top, and a pullout couch in the living room that is great for kids. There are 2 other full baths so there is plenty of room for the entire family.
The home features crown molding throughout and the modern kitchen includes granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked with all new cookware and accessories.
We have televisions in every bedroom and dvd players in the living room and children's room. The kids' room also features rails to put on the bed and a pack n play for smaller children. Our home is designed to be very family friendly.
We feature a large clean area below the house with an outdoor shower and grill along with plenty of seating. This is another great area to relax with the family and enjoy a game or a drink. We have covered parking for 4 cars and can fit another 4 in the driveway. The home has 2 units and we are the lower unit. Parking is on the right side of the home when facing the driveway.

Why Paul Ulshafer chose Gulf Shores
WineDown won us over with the beautiful view of the Gulf and the quick walk to a beautiful beach. The beach here is very wide with soft sand and is the perfect place to relax.

Our experience at the WineDown property was AWESOME!!!! Very beautiful, clean, contemporary and modern layout with a wonderful and functional kitchen if you decide to eat and cook in!! We cooked breakfast and dinner in one day and ate out the rest of the stay. Property manager was friendly, professional and very helpful and knowledgeable about eateries in the area, as well as the rental property. 2 minute walk to the beach!!! We had a FANTASTIC 4 days in Gulf Shores and will definitely be back to stay at the WineDown!!! We even had t-shirts made "GNO Crew WineDown"!!
Steve/Santa please look for us in the future!! The Nashville/Hendersonville Ladies~
Great Location..but had some issues
The house is in the perfect spot, only a very short walk to the beach access, and on a fairly quiet street. My family and I had a great time. Lots of restaurants and shopping, and tons of stuff to do. We did however have a few issues with the house. Namely the TV in the living room did not work when we got there. We notified "Santa" pretty much as soon as we got there and he looked at it, called the cable people, who couldn't come out until the next day. They came out and fixed it but apparently that cut off "Santa's" TV so they had to come back out. Then the sound stopped working and we had to get 2 new remotes while we were there. We were there from Mon-Friday and the TV only worked (with sound) on 1 day (Tues), and the sound still wasn't working when we left. Also, the outside shower did not work. We believe it was b/c the day we tried to use it, "Santa" was outside pressure washing his truck. While Santa and his wife were perfectly nice, it was kind of disconcerting to have someone always around while you're on vacation. He was literally in our rental every day of the vacation - due to the TV issues (also had an issue with the TV in the room w/ the bunkbeds). That being said, the condo was very nice, the master suite especially was quite large with a huge tub and shower. We had a total of 7 people staying there and it was quite comfortable. Again - best thing about this spot is the location. For not being directly on the beachfront, it's about as good as you can get. If you don't mind having a close neighbor upstairs, I would recommend staying here. We had a wonderful time!
We had a wonderful week staying at a beautiful property. Wine Down was a great place to stay for a family vacation in Gulf Shores. A very short walk to the beach with a gulf view from the deck we would recommend this property to anyone. The interior of the property is clean and nice and the property manager Steve very friendly and helpful.
Great Value! Great Location!
This was our second time staying in the property and we are already making plans to visit again. We really enjoy the proximity to the public beach access! The home is nicely furnished and clean. We have stayed in many rental home in Gulf Shore in the past 20 years and this one (finally) meets my higher standards and is pet friendly! We stayed for one month and never had a single issue with the home.
The place was very neat and clean. Short walk to the beach. I did not realize there would be someone above us but it was quiet. We were there for a wedding so did not spend a lot of time at the house.
Fabulous week in Gulf Shores
We had a wonderful time staying at WineDown. The place looks just like the pictures. Very comfortable and close to the beach. The caretaker Steve (Santa) was very helpful and had a lot of helpful information. My family enjoyed being together and relaxing for the week. Thank you for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise!
Located on a quiet stretch of Gulf Shores but just a short drive from local favorites like The Hangout (4 minutes), Bill's on the Beach, LuLu's, Bahama Bob's and many others. The new Beach House Restaurant is just a 1 minute drive away and features great hand made burgers. Short 4-5 minute drive to the center of town and all of the great festivals Gulf Shores is known for. The Gulf is directly across the street from us and you can enjoy a short walk to the fishing inlet.
