About Becky Kohlhorst
We are both retired and spend our winters in Gulf Shores and our summers back home in Illinois. We purchased another property in Gulf Shores 6 years ago and found that we really enjoy renting to families who want a fun place to spend their vacation time at a reasonable price. So, we decided to purchase a condo in Westwind.
Becky Kohlhorst purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Becky Kohlhorst chose Gulf Shores
I love this condo in Westwind because of the amazing views from the 6th floor West corner balcony. We have owned another property in Gulf Shores for 6 years and we just love it here. We spend 5 months in Gulf Shores every winter so it truly is our home away from home.
What makes this Condo unique
I fell in love with this property because it is a corner unit so there are plenty of windows for natural light ! I can see the Gulf from the window over the kitchen sink or the dining room or the living room or the bedrooms! Westwind is a smaller complex with only 30 units so there are no large crowds to deal with at the pool. I also love the elevator (that is very fast)! No more stairs for this retired lady. The balcony has the most amazing views of the beach and you can see forever! Weswind also has charcoal grills and a picnic area for guest's who like to grill out.

The property was as advertised. Clean - well stocked-great location.
I would stay here again.
The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 stars was the elevator would not work on a few occasions. I was told they are replacing the elevator beginning in November.
Thank you for your review. The elevator is being replaced and should work perfectly for many years. Thank you, Becky Kohlhorst
Steps to the Shoreline. Very fast elevator. Perfect floor for oceanview. Comfortable beds.
Air conditioning very cold. Big size patio. Never ran out of hor water. Big closets. Room close to elevator. Beach nice and flat and great for walking. Found lots of shells. Condo close to restaurants and activities. Owner very nice and very helpful.
Thank you for your wonderful review! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at our Gulf front condo. I think it's in a ideal location. Close to everything Gulf Shores has to offer. I hope that you can come back again soon.
We had four in our party and it was quite comfortable. Beautiful ocean views.
As we were first walking threw it actually felt like we were right on the beach. Beautiful. The corner unit allowed all the ocean breezes to be felt all day long. The interior was decorated nicely We enjoy cooking in some and the kitchen was equipped so we could do that. I think anyone would enjoying staying in this unit I know we will rent it again
That View, Though!
We enjoyed our stay in Becky's condo. It was clean and spacious. My husband's first comment was, " This place is bigger than I was expecting!" (I searched and booked the condo.) We didn't cook during our short visit, but the condo was well-stocked. It even had beach towels and coffee filters, which always seem to be hit or miss in beach condos. The best part of our stay was the view from the balcony. My husband and I enjoyed our coffee in the mornings and wine in the evenings from the balcony. Be prepared for a 9:30am checkout. We would definitely book this place again if we return to Gulf Shores.
Thank you for your lovely review. The condo is very spacious and we love the view too. I love to watch the sunset from the balcony.
Beautiful Condo with an amazing view
we absolutely loved our stay! We don't eat out a lot so the kitchen was perfect for our needs. There wasn't one tool not there that we needed in order to cook and bake every day. The beds were comfortable, even the bunk beds in the hallway. It was way more spacious than I thought and it suited the seven of us comfortably. The owner was always quick to get back with me if I had a question. we fell in love with the beach and the town. we are already talking about coming back next year and I hope to stay here again!
Thank you for your nice review. I'm always happy to hear that my guests enjoyed their stay and want to come back. Many of my guests like to cook so I've tried to think of everything needed in the kitchen.
A perfect getaway!
This was a last minute “me” time trip. PERFECT! The view is great! I stayed on the balcony the majority of the trip. The condo is a step off the elevator. I brought my own champagne glass - no need! There were wine and champagne glasses available! Didn’t cook, but anything you need appeared to be available. Definitely my choice for return trips!
Thank you for your great review! The condo has a fantastic view from the West facing corner balcony. It's a wonderful place to sit and relax. I have tried to provide everything needed in the kitchen. I am always improving the condo. Thank you for staying in my condo and I hope that you can come back again soon.
Westwind is located 1.2 miles West of Hwy 59 (Gulf Shores Parkway) on West Beach Blvd. Dining and fun are located just a few minutes away! We love to try new places to eat. Gulf Shores has the best seafood that I have ever tasted and be sure to try Lamberts home of the thrown rolls. They actually throw you a dinner roll! Take the family to the zoo or on a dolphin cruise. I never get tired of watching the dolphins play in the wake of the boat. History buffs will love Fort Morgan or go to Battleship park in Mobile to tour the USS Alabama. If you love to shop try the Tanger Outlet Mall. There is always something fun to do in Gulf Shores for all ages.
