About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom Condo With Phenomenal Gulf View Directly On The Beach!

Are your vacation dates FLEXIBLE? If not, Book NOW before someone else does and reserves your dates! Dates are booking fast. Now is the time to reserve your times to get the dates you want.

We have three flat screen HD TVs in our condo, and Direct TV along with free WIFI. We have a wifi booster that uses the electrical wiring as an antennae so that you can access the wifi from any room in the condo without losing service.

Summer always sells out at Island Winds West - occupancy in Gulf Shores in general averages over 94% for Summer. This property is managed by its owners rather than a big, impersonal management company that has to make profits with high overhead.


Our complex is one of the closest to the Gulf Shores public beach where Hwy 59, the main highway south terminates at the Gulf of Mexico and where the Shrimp Festival and the Hangout Music Festival are staged.

Beautiful Condo had brand new custom cabinets complete with granite counter tops installed in November '15 to go along with a Refrigerator with ice maker and a new washer/dryer combo that were installed in 2014.

The Condo has a spaciousness you will find only with a condo at the end of the building which has direct beach front as well as windows on the side to feel more like home. The balcony has nearly twice the space of one bedroom and the small 2 bedroom units.

The views of the Gulf Beaches are spectacular from everywhere in the condo, including both bedrooms, each with a private bath. From the private balcony on the east end of the building, you can see east for many miles down the beach.

Direct Gulf Front unit on the east end facing the beach, with nothing between you and the surf but white sand. The beach is fabulous! Right outside your balcony ... Best Value DIRECT GULF FRONT CONDO with 2 Full Bedrooms and 2 Full Baths!

Gulf front Pool with adjacent shady area and BBQ add to the ambiance. One of the few remaining condos with a kiddie pool right next to the shady area and main pool.

The building is being continually refurbished by the new board of directors, who are committed to keeping it up to date. The pool has been renovated and new pool furniture added. New railings and fences and picnic tables and shower/foot washing stations add to the pleasant exterior, as does updated landscaping. New doors and elevator floors and stairway and walkway paint give a fresh look to the outside.

If your dates aren't available, please check out our other property which is a BRAND NEW BEACH HOUSE IN GULF SHORES!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

You have a fantastic home! It is so quiet and comfortable. I loved being on the end of the floor. This made our stay so quiet. The view was beautiful from the balcony. Thank you so much for the great stay.

Everything we wanted...and more!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our girls getaway!! I love that it is super close to The Hangout (closed during our stay...but there is always next time!), and close to shopping & eating.

Condo was stocked with plenty of goods that we didn't need to purchase. Super clean with a GREAT view. I was the lucky one with the master bedroom. I loved waking to the sun and beach every morning. Enjoyed a couple of sun rises despite the 37 degree temp. I also enjoyed the view from the treadmill. =) Owner even emailed us on the day of arrival to make sure that everything was satisfactory.....NEVER had an owner do that before. Very pleased with the whole process, booking to the refund of the deposit. Can't wait to return to this little piece of heaven!! R&R was on the menu and we accomplished that! Thanks so much!!

Wonderful condo for a quiet vacation

  • 4 of 5

The end unit is a good location and the bedrooms have no neighbors. The kitchen is well equipped. On site staff and owner were right on top of any issues and very helpful. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Great views and comfortable spot right on the Gulf!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. This was just the right size for four of us. Lots of places within walking distance and the shell collecting was fabulous. The water was still warm at this time of year.

I was dissappointed that a parking pass for my vehicle was not included in the rental price and I had to purchase a parking tag. Other than that, we had a great stay. I definitely recommend going to Gulf State Park for a bike ride, walk, or Segway tour. They have over 24 miles of paved trails.

Owner's Response: The new management company, Brett-Robinson, requires that renters purchase the parking passes directly from them upon arrival. Each pass is only $20 and is good for the duration of the stay. I apologize for any inconvenience but it is completely out of our hands. We used to purchase them ourselves and have them on the kitchen counter for our guests upon arrival and we enjoyed being able to provide that service. However, the new management took over this spring and this is one change that they insisted upon. Thanks for staying and we hope that you come back soon!
