My daughter and I lived in this condo for 7 years (2002 to 2009). I renovated the unit to make it comfortable to live in year round or one week at a time! Everything is new, easy to use, and easy to clean. New AC/heat, new appliances, new washer/dryer. Wall was moved in master bedroom to allow a full size bathroom that two people can use at the same time. Maybe the only such master bathroom in Southwinds. This also added closet space in the master bedroom. I chose Southwinds because it is a family oriented complex and kid friendly. My daughter has made many friends with kids coming down during the summer. She learned to swim in the pool by trying to keep up with the 'big' kids while shunning my advice. Usually there are some kids at the pool or beach to make friends with. However, it never gets too crowded or noisy that you can't relax and have a romantic getaway.
Southwinds is at the quiet end of Atlantic Beach near Fort Macon. From E-5 it is a 100 yard walk to the beach. From Southwinds beach, to the left is a 200 yard walk to the bath houses at Fort Macon State Park with a full concession. Freezer pops and ice cream are still only 50 cents. Walk a mile further to Beaufort Inlet and Fort Macon - the actual Civil War brick fort that is full of cannons and reenactments. Friday night concerts are held in Fort Macon during the summer. During the day, bunny rabbits run across the front lawn. Sometimes large turtles crawl across the lawn. At night you may see red foxes trot across the Southwinds parking lot, but they are shy and run away quickly. Bring a flash light to the beach at sun down and look for ghost crabs along the edge of the surf. Sea turtles come to the area and lay their eggs during late Spring / early Summer nights and hatch during a full moon in the early Fall. Sea turtle nests are wired off and protected. Volunteers monitor the nests close to hatch time and the public can watch the turtles hatch if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time.
From Southwinds beach, to the right is a two mile walk to the Oceanana Pier, the Atlantic Beach circle and main public beach. Amos Mosquito's Restaurant is only half a mile down the road from Southwinds, with other restaurants just a little further down the road.
