Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This is a fabulous condo and great for a family vacation! Once at the condo you won't need to move your car during your stay. Southwinds is located in the middle of Gulf Shores on West Beach Blvd - approximately 2 blocks from the 'T' (Hwy 59 & West Hwy 182). We are directly across the street from the Gulf Shores West Public beach and in EASY walking distance to several restaurants and shops. We have an unobstructed view of the beautiful white sandy beach. You can not get a better location to enjoy happenings at the beach in Gulf Shores!

Our condo is a 2br townhouse and brightly decorated for a cottage feel and family enjoyment. This condo is spacious with plenty of room for your family to stretch out and relax! The sleeping capacity is six (6) and although we do love pets, this unit is a no pets, no smoking unit.

We have all the amenities you need for a great stay. There is a full kitchen along with a full size washer and dryer in the unit. In addition to an expandable table that seats four, the kitchen has a large counter with seating for four.

Our living room has newly installed wood grain flooring and plenty of sitting room for everyone. It contains a brightly colored queen sleeper sofa, large chair with ottoman, comfie white wicker rocker, a wall mounted 40' flat screen tv with dvd player. We have a new air conditioning system waiting for your enjoyment.

Both bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom is luxuriously decorated in a tropical palm theme with a queen bed and white wicker bench seating. It contains a 32' flat screen TV and DVD player. The spacious 2nd bedroom contains a comfortable full bed.

We provide complimentary wifi along with covered parking for two (2) cars.

When you want a break from the beach there is an on-site pool. Want different exercise? Bike, kayak and paddle board rental is close to Southwinds. Like to fish? Fish off the public pier or exercise your imagination on the deck with a great view of the beach. We have a patio height deck table with umbrella and seating for four on the large front deck.

Within a mile of Southwinds you can visit a water park - (Waterville) ... an amusement center (The Track).... Gulf Shores Zoo.... Or one of the area spas in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

Have a special occasion coming up? Just let us know when you book and we can definitely help you plan a spectacular trip.

Why Libby chose Gulf Shores

We have always loved Gulf Shores and its easy accessibity! This unit is perfect for my family. We love the area and the family complex. We enjoy fishing, nature and Gulf Shores' proximity to many historical areas. We are able to walk to so many things from Southwinds and can quickly access the highways when we choose to take a trip.

Great place, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, and had everything I wanted for a weekend beach getaway. The property is directly across from beautiful, brand new public beach access, and was walking distance to a TON of different places. Parking was plentiful, and we found everything we needed in this condo. Would definitely stay again!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Loved the area as it was convienent to pretty much everything. I agree with the previous post in regards to the blackout curtains. Not only for sleeping in but it would help with keeping the upstairs cooler. We enjoyed our stay and the owner was very quick to repair the air conditioner upon our arrival.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was nice and cozy. Perfect location! Real easy to find. Plus it has a pool. My only con: the windows need black out curtains. That way i would have slept past 7am.
