  • Fantastic!

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My family had an amazing time at the condo! It was all that we hoped for and more. The location is absolutely ideal because you can walk just a short distance from your car to the condo. The condo is so spacious and clean. The view was gorgeous, especially for porpus watching! All kitchen appliances and utensils are there for you. I used the gym each morning and there is an indoor pool. Major plus is the hospitable owners. They made sure we had everything we needed to settle in. You must stay there!"

  • A Snowbird Stay

    "We rented this condo for 11 weeks and just returned home a few days ago. It was our third winter at Tradewinds but our first in this unit. Prefer this one over the other two we have stayed in. The resorts main highlight for snowbirds is the indoor/outdoor heated pool. On sunny days with temperatures above 55 the pool was filled with people. It is centrally located to all the activities in both Orange Beach and Gulf Shores and convenient shopping. It is also only 10 miles from grocery shopping in Florida where you can save the 10% sales tax Alabama charges on groceries. When you are down for a long time this adds up. The condo itself is spacious, bright and well equipped. The decor is plain and uncluttered. The view from the balcony and from the east facing side windows in the LR and both BR's is fantastic. Being on the top floor and an end unit made it quieter than some others. The condo was very clean but a little bit worn and the paint on the trim was scuffed pretty bad in areas. It needs some TLC. Pleasure Island Properties, who manage the unit, are very good to work with. During the course of our stay there were several maintenance issues that arose and they were promptly handled. We would highly recommend this condo and in fact have already reserved for next winter."

  • Vacation getaway

    "Property was clean, beds were comfortable and the view was spectacular. The kitchen has limited supplies for cooking and Phoenix 1 building is the oldest of the buildings so it shows wear and tear but this unit is good. We enjoyed our 7 night stay."

  • Great property

    "We stayed here two weeks ago to attend a wedding next door. Our party consisted of my family of 4 plus another couple. This condo was the perfect layout for our group. It was very well decorated and maintained. Very impressed with the soundproofing. Could hear very little from inside the condo with the doors closed. It was a perfect location with easy access to everything Orange Beach. Parking on the same level was great since we have a 6yo and a 9mo. We stayed here because of the lazy river, and it did not disappoint. There were always pool chairs available, despite the number of condos in the building. I was also impressed that the beach does not feel crowded, even though there are a lot of people there. The owner of the condo was very nice. She responded to every email very promptly. My complaints about the condo will be separated into two categories: Owner controllable: - No extra towels provided, so we had to do laundry every day (and we took our own beach towels). There was no laundry detergent provided. We had to buy it. - Only one tiny packet of dishwashing detergent provided, presumably for the final load on check-out day. We had to buy it to do dishes everyday. - No paper towels or extra toilet paper provided. We had to buy it. - No crib/pack&play or high chair. I understand many people will not have a need for this, but this is marketed to families, and as a hotel substitute. It should be made available. We wanted to fly to Orange Beach, but had to drive just so we could bring these things with us. I have stayed in other VRBO properties and had these provided. Not owner controllable: - This condo building does not have enough elevators. Expect to wait at peak times. We never had to take the stairs, but we thought about it. Thankfully this condo is on the 4th floor. - One of the days we were there had a thunderstorm come through. They closed the indoor pool due to lightning in the area. I completely understand closing the outdoor pool for lightning, but the whole point of having an indoor pool is to be able to use it during inclement weather. That made no sense. and the front desk did not have a good explanation. Overall, we would absolutely stay here again. I'm hopeful that my small concerns will be addressed, especially since the ownership recently changed. Even if the owner doesn't want to provide these things, it would be helpful for the renter to know ahead of time. If that happened, this would be a 5 star property."
