Overview

Orange Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Bunk Area, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

When my brother, Tom and I bought our condo in September of 2008, it was a big deal for both of us. We grew up landlocked in Lawrence, Kansas, where the nearest ocean is over a thousand miles in any direction, so the ocean and the beach are always the dream. When we found FourWinds, we immediately liked the building and we loved #501. The building is relatively small (36 total units) compared to some of the mega-plexes that line the gulf coast and the view from #501 was fantastic. Being on the fifth floor means we are up high enough to have a commanding view of the beach, but low enough that we don’t feel disconnected from the beach activity. Being set a little closer to the beach than those buildings on either side of us means we have a great 180+ degree view of the ocean and beach from the balcony. It was just what we were looking for.

We knew we wanted to have a place where our families and friends could come and relax and enjoy the sun, surf and sand. The kind of place that just felt good, where you could hang out and decompress. So that’s what we set out to create. A clean, comfortable space with a modern, minimalist vibe that feels a little less like a vacation rental and a little more like your own place. We try to approach everything from the standpoint of ‘what kind of place do we want and how do we want it to feel?’ We like where that’s gotten us so far, but also know there is more we want to do as we go along.

Our hope is that our guests will see and feel the thought and care we've put into FW501 and choose to return whenever they visit the Alabama Gulf Coast.

Why Veronica Paschall chose Orange Beach

My brother and I had talked for a long time about wanting to have a vacation home for our friends and family. And neither of us had ever been to the Orange Beach/Gulf Shores area before our visit to look at properties there. We did so at the suggestion of a friend of my brother's. We just liked the casual vibe of the Alabama Gulf Coast and that, outside The South, Orange Beach/Gulf Shores is still fairly undiscovered. After looking at a number of properties over a few days, we settled on Four Winds #501.

What makes this condo unique

My favorite thing about staying at our place is getting up with the sun and watching it rise over the ocean while sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee. Put on just the right song from the iPod dock and it's the perfect way to start the day. Oftentimes I'll see dolphins swimming along the coastline. My wife and son like to sleep in and I get some good quiet time before hitting the beach and enjoying the soft, sugar-sand beaches and warm water.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to let you know that my family just returned today from visiting Orange Beach and staying in your condo and we all had an amazing time! The weather was perfect, the condo was very clean and the perfect size and location. We all especially loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the incredible view. We hope to be back someday. Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it. Thanks.

Excellent Condo on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long-weekend at this beautiful beach condo. It is very well appointed, while being kid-friendly. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The pool, hot-tub and kiddy-pool are very nice, and are steps from the beach. During peak season (March - October) there are reasonably priced chaise lounges with umbrellas monitored by attendants on the beach, so you do not need to haul a trunk load of gear to be comfortable on the beach. The beach is clean with soft white sand, and the water is clean. You can walk at night without shoes and not worry about injuries. There are several grocery stores within 2 miles, and plenty of restaurants. We love that the condo complex is small so parking is easy and the pool and beach are not crowded.

Wonderful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Orange Beach/Gulf Shore for several years. This was the fourth different condo we have stayed in during that time and it was by far the nicest. Very spacious. Very tastefully decorated. Nothing was cheap or trashy. The view from the balcony was great. It's a smaller building, so parking was very close and easy. We had a great time and plan on returning next year. The rental process was easy and painless. No check-in at a realty company to get keys, etc. Just walked up, opened the door and our vacation began. Looking forward to our vacation next year!

The condo was very nice & we really enjoyed our stay. We really liked the fact that the building only had 36 units so the beach wasn't very crowded at all and the sunrise from the balcony was awesome. We will definitely come back to this condo if it is available on our next visit. Mr. Paschal was very easy & pleasant to work with & we appreciate this. Thank you again Mr. Paschal.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo on the beach. We stayed in another Four Winds condo last winter and this one has such lovely upgrades. You have spoiled us. Thank you so much for allowing us to spend the winter in your condo. It is so clean and again the upgrades are great. We would recommend this condo to everyone. The photos you show are very accurate as to how your condo looks. Our favorites for eating are Tacky Jacks, Mikee's Shrimp, Happy Harbour pizza, Bubba's for steak, the American Legion for Prime Rib on Tuesday's. We hope to spend many winters in Orange Beach. We would rent this condo again anytime it is available. Thanks so much.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We work hard to make our place feel like a second home vs. another rental. And our management and cleaning staff deserve all the credit for the cleanliness of our place. Thanks again.

Great Girls Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my girlfriend and her 2 daughters stayed at this Condo in September. The condo was everything pictured in the photos, the view was breathtaking and the condo was clean and well maintained! We really enjoyed walking on the beach at sunrise and at sunset-it became a daily ritual! We saw dolphins, cranes and lots of jellyfish! The food at the local resturants was excellent! The view from the balcony was awesome! I don't think we used the table inside to eat on-we ate all our meals on the balcony or on the beach! Wish we couldv'e stayed longer-but we will be back!
