MARVELOUS BEACHFRONT VIEW - SPACIOUS CORNER UNIT - FREE WIFI

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, 1400 Sq Ft, Sleeps 8, Beachfront Pool

From our private, covered, 5th floor balcony, you can enjoy the wonderful view of the Gulf, watch the numerous shore birds, search for dolphins, or just listen to the waves lapping upon the shore. Since Tropical Winds 504 is a corner unit, it has large rooms with extra windows. The kitchen is fully equipped if you like to eat in, and there is a washer/dryer in the unit for your convenience. Bed and bath linens are provided. Enjoy cable TV in all bedrooms, and 'free' Wireless Internet is available.

This 1400 Sq Ft condo is in a smaller complex located just one mile from the heart of Gulf Shores where you will find numerous restaurants and shops. The beachside pool has a large sundeck with lounge chairs and a covered picnic area with grills, a fitness center, and ground floor rest rooms.

Great for Family Vacations ! : What first attracted us to the Gulf Shores area 22 years ago, was the fact that it is very family oriented. Besides swimming, surfing, skim boarding, playing ball and frisbee, collecting shells, and building sand castles on the beach, there are many other activities in the area to be enjoyed by children. Places to visit and things to do include the zoo, water and amusement parks, go-kart tracks, numerous putt-putt golf courses, dolphin cruises, and parasailing. There are also forts to visit, bike trails to ride, and bird sanctuaries, wildlife refuges, and estuaries to explore. Of course there is always fishing and finding those little sand crabs after dark. Our grandchildren like going to the large shaded Gulf Shores playground located near the ball fields and rec center. We hope that you will enjoy 'Pleasure Island' as much as we do.

Shopping: Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley is just 20 minutes away and is good to visit on a rainy day or for Senior Discounts on Tuesdays. Of course, there is always Wal-Mart and Target for your everyday needs as well as numerous grocery stores, restaurants, and souvenir shops in the immediate Gulf Shores area.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the last week in June. It was excellent for my family. We have 3 small children and the condo was absolutely perfect. The condo was large and spacious. The kitchen has everything you would need. The pool was nice. We actually did see dolphins from our patio one morning. Close to other attractions. Close to a large grocery and lots of nice resteraunts.
Will stay with them again!!!

BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN, AND SPACIOUS! PERFECT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was immaculate upon arrival! It easily fit my family of four, my in-laws and my mother---with room to spare! It was very nice to have a pack-n-play and a high chair for our 9-month old, as well! The balcony view was great, and we were able to see dolphins most mornings! The owners were great to work with--before,during, and after our stay! It was great!

GREAT CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We never write reviews, however we feel this is worthy of writing about. We have rented many condo's in the past but have never had one as clean and as well maintained as this one. Communication with the owner was great and very fast response to our emails. With 8 people and 2 of them being teenage girls 3 baths was a +++. Plenty of sitting room in the living room and the balcony was larger than most places we've been. On the cooler days when being on the beach was a bit cool you could be by the pool and be comfortable. Nice to have and exercise room too. Would not hesitate to stay here again the next time we are in Gulf Shores.

GREAT FOR FAMILIES, FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at Tropical Winds and it has been one of our best vacations to date. The condo was clean, quiet, and very inviting. We had three adults and three children and plenty of room. The beach was lovely, water was warm and clear. The view from the balcony is wonderful and there is a nice breeze much of the time. We were able to leave our umbrellas in the sand overnight which made for less tracking sand into the condo. This is a great place for families! We met other families when we visited and our kids are keeping in touch. The pool is clean and well kept. Our kids loved to spend time in the ocean and in the pool. Many people used the grills and those were maintained well too. Carol, the owner, was helpful and made making reservations simple and straight forward. We will likely return yearly.

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACHES IN THE WORLD

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time with family and friends at your condo. Plenty of sleeping arrangements, the condo is clean, neat, and decorated very nicely. The view was great from what I think are the most beautiful beaches in the world. We ate at some of the local restaurants but also enjoyed cooking at the condo. I highly recommend this condo for families.
