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!

We are located in the middle of Gulf Shores on West Beach Blvd, approximately 2 blocks from the 'T' (Hwy 59 & West Hwy 182). Southwinds is directly across the street from the Gulf Shores West Public beach and has an unobstructed view of the beautiful white sand beach. You can not get a better location to enjoy happenings at the beach in Gulf Shores!

Our condo is a 2br townhouse style unit and decorated with a bright, cottage family feel. There is a sleeping capacity of six (6) . This condo is spacious with plenty of room for your family to stretch out and relax! 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, complete kitchen along with a washer and dryer in the in-unit laundry room. For quick meals and conversation the kitchen has a large counter with plenty of seating.

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 along with a table and chairs that expands to seat four for dinner or games.

Both bedrooms are upstairs. The master bedroom is luxuriously decorated with 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 along with a movable 32' TV.

We provide free wifi and covered parking for two (2) cars.

When you want a break from the beach there is an on-site pool. Shopping and restaurants are close by and in easy walking distance. Once at the condo you won't need to move your car! What shopping and restaurants? Shop around the 'T' for fudge, ice cream, souvenirs, bathing suits, shorts, t-shirts, beach towels... Want different exercise? Rent a bike, kayak and explore the bay, fish at the public fishing area 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 the 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 Alabama

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 time!

This was a perfect spot for our annual girls getaway. Beach access was perfect and walking distance to restaurants and shops made it even better. Libby was quick to call back and very helpful. Will definitely want to stay here our next trip.

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.

Perfect place for my small family

  • 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.

Great location. Within walking distance to many restaurants and shops.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I stayed at Southwinds and it is very quiet, calm and relaxing. Very convenient to pretty much anything you would need during your stay.

I would highly recommend staying at Southwinds and renting from Libby. This is my new location of choice when I visit Gulf Shores.

Nice condo, good location, communication can be issue

  • 4 of 5

I loved the condo and the location, close to a ton of stuff and walking distance to the beach. However, I had trouble getting a timely response from Libby when I'd contact her and had to bypass her a few times and just call the owner directly. The deposit was supposed to be returned within 10 days; it was almost a month later before I got it from her. I would definitely recommend dealing with the owner directly, he's super friendly and calls you back IMMEDIATELY. Other than that, it was a nice vacation. DeSoto's was by far the best place we went to eat; it was WELL worth the hour wait.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you loved the condo and thank you for the feedback. I'm sorry you encountered a delay with the deposit return. The deposit was to be returned in 10 days of departure, by Aug 5th. Due to an email issue on my part, it was returned on Aug 21st. The email issue has been resolved and should no longer be an issue
