About HELEN MCDONALD

We are a retired couple that sailed extensively in our younger years to the Bahamas and South Florida for 6 months at a time so we still feel the need to be close to the beach.

HELEN MCDONALD purchased this condo in 2012

Why HELEN MCDONALD chose Alabama

We chose Four Winds because it was close to everything in Orange Beach but was a small complex of only 36 units with plenty of parking. Its pool is uncrowded the better part of the time and the elevator is right at your door due to the configuration of the building. It is small but the square footage of the one bedroom units is greater than most on the beach. We also love our balcony and the roar of the beach!!!!

It is set off the highway deeper than alot of other complexes.

What makes this condo unique

You can stand in the kitchen or lay in the recliner and see the waves from our 5th floor unit. I love the convenince of the trash chute on each floor--wish I had one at home.

I also love that the pool is cleaned every morning like clockwork. If you do not want to drive you can walk to the restaurant across the street with a protected light to cross the street!!!!

The biking and walking paths are located all over Orange Beach for your pleasure.

Beautiful Get AWAY

  • 5 of 5

The weather was absolutely perfect- no crowds, it was if we had the whole place to ourselves. This will be our 5th year staying at Four Winds and it is always so peaceful and refreshing. Condo is extremely clean and feels like home!! Owners are quick to respond and always accommodating.

Owner's Response: Fourwinds is a complex that keeps you coming back year after year. Its low density and short walk to beach along with its short walk or drive to restaurants, arcade and grocery stores. We have always taken pride in our unit's cleanliness. It has been my baby to manage for the last five years!!! Fourwinds suffered no damage during Nate. We look forward to seeing you again. Helen

Very clean, convenient location, nice pool area (although a bath would be nice), well stocked condo

  • 5 of 5

No complaints. Helen was great to work with. This was a short notice trip and lucky for us and her it was available. We truly enjoyed our stay. Would return. Breakfast across the street was convient and excellent. Mmy only suggestion would be a little more updated upholstery and bedding. But it was clean and in good shape. Thanks Helen for a nice 54th anniversary trip to the beach.

Beautiful uncrowded beach

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for my sister and I on a retirement trip. The decor was very beachy and pretty. Everything we needed was supplied. Amazing view of the ocean from the balcony. Since this was a smaller building, the beach was not crowded. Loved, loved our stay. The owner is very accessible and friendly. Can't wait to visit again.
