We had a real nice time at the Gulf Winds. The resort itself was quiet, with great access to the beach, which is across a lightly traveled two lane street. This particular condo had a beach view, which was pretty cool. The condo was clean had a nice amount of space for my wife and I. I was really happy with the ease and convenience of check in - the owners were fantastic and the rate was very reasonable. For that alone, I would consider renting this place again. The beach is undergoing restoration so there are currently large yellow tube-like things the size of small docks on the beach, which was unfortunate but was more an aesthetic issue than anything. Those are just temporary and you can walk a ways down the beach and you'll be fine. All in all, I was real pleased with the condo and would recommend it for sure.
