Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Thank you for spending a few moments looking at our condo. We want you to know that we are vacationers too. We recently finished completely painting with new colors and furnishings. What we look for is a place that is affordable and is kept absolutely clean and has up to date furnishings. Our condo fits this description. You have a place that leaves you more money to spend on the rest of your vacation. You are using the same beach, same restaurants, same stores, same recreation places and other amenities that are used by the high priced condos. We also want to know what others have to say about our condo after they leave. We have many guest reviews for you to read. You don’t have to just take our word in the advertising. We have been blessed with so many wonderful guests over the past 10 years and have many repeat visitors.

Our condo is located in the heart of Gulf Shores. You can walk to a number of restaurants on wide walking lanes or walk to the many local flavor stores. Our condo is located directly across the street from the beach. We are on a corner and have a safe crossing light to our deeded access onto the beach. When you walk out the front door you will be standing on the beach in 3 minutes. You will be parking directly under our condo so your car stays safely covered for your stay.

Why do people keep coming back to Gulf Shores? Still has the small town beach feel. Still a family oriented city. Still the best Seafood restaurants anywhere. The incredibly white beaches that are so wide simply are beyond description until you see it yourself. Plenty of unique shopping places in Gulf Shores. All the familiar chain restaurants and stores are bordering Gulf Shores in Foley. Night time fun for families. Going to The Hangout during the day or night is a blast. Long walks down nearly secluded beaches in early mornings or before dark is a must.

Our condo has nearly every convenience you have at home. The kitchen is fully stocked so you don’t have to bring home to here. Plenty of linens and towels too. We have Wifi so bring your laptop too. You will be working with us directly and you always have our phone number if you need us. We pride ourselves in responding every step of the way quickly and politely during the process of deciding and ultimately coming to our condo. We actively manage our condo and do all the cleaning and maintaining so we know what you want when you get here. Clean, Clean, Clean and comfortable!

About Randy Moris

Lisa and I thank you all for looking at our website. I’m not sure you can call us a success story but if working very hard to establish ourselves in the vacation market is success then we’ll take it. Both Lisa and I have worked full-time jobs in Mobile, AL while working our beach condo business at nights, weekends and any other time people need us. This really all started very simply for us in realizing a dream of buying a simple, humble condo in Gulf Shores. After going to the beach on vacations most of our lives we finally could say we had our own place to go to. We started renting out our condo and found there were people everywhere that want to come to the beach but were priced-out just like it was for us. Our first condo provided a way to come and not spend thousands to do it.

Lisa and I are the parents of a 32 year old son, Nicholas, and a 28 year old daughter named Jill. Jill thought so much of her parents that she has given us 2 granddaughters. It has added so much to our lives. We still live in Mobile and wear out I-10 and the Baldwin Beach Express going between Gulf Shores and home. We manage our own condos and help several friends with theirs. We do the majority of all the cleaning so that we can keep close tabs on each property and keep providing that personal touch. We aren’t a large or faceless company. We are people like you. Hard working people. We probably have many of the same problems but many of the same joys that you have. We are family people and connect well with the many families that come to our places here in Gulf Shores.

We really appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to check us out. And we’d love to have you get a sense of what we feel whenever we are at the beach.

Why Randy Moris chose Alabama Gulf Coast

We have always loved vacationing in Gulf Shores and always wanted our own place here. We loved it so much we now have 3 condos.

What makes this condo unique

It's not unique to come on vacation to the beach unless there is no beach where you live. The number 1 reason we always vacationed at Gulf Shores was to get on the beach. Of course there is always plenty of other activities to fill in your days and evenings but the beach was, is, and always be our first love. Oh, and saving money by staying at our condos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed at Gentle Winds East a couple of weeks ago, and we really enjoyed it. It was very clean, we'll priced, and in a great location. We will definitely be booking again as soon as possible, as it is extremely difficult to find privately owned and operated property in beach areas that are well maintained. We were very pleased!

Across the street from the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Very cute and cozy space, very clean and kitchen stocked with almost every pot/pan/utensil you could need. Balcony/deck is nice, has several chairs, and some things for the kids to use at the beach. This unit faces the street, so there is considerable traffic noise when the deck door is open. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants (Waffle House right next door). Short drive to Orange Beach, AL and Perdido Key, FL. Walk across the street to the beach, get there early to reserve chairs/umbrellas. We had a wonderful time!

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very cozy, quiet, and comfortable. The condo helped make for a wonderful vacation, as it's affordable and in a prime location. Literally across the street from the beach, it's almost like you have your own personal walkway there. It's walking distance from so many neat places, for example The Hangout. Also walking distance from so many other restaurants and stores such as Surf Style and Dollar General. When we did drive, it's because we were being lazy and didn't want to walk :) Can't express enough how much we enjoyed our stay! Randy is great with communication and letting you know all procedures of the rental. Hopefully I'll get to come back in the future!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for a girls getaway. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a great time exploring the area but mostly being on the beach. Beach was clean and very easily accessible. Plenty of places to visit nearby! Randy was great to work with and got us the information and deposit to us quickly. I will definitely look into returning when planning for the next getaway!

Another Excellent Vacation Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our (my boyfriend and I) second year to stay in this little condo! We absolutely love it here. It is so neat, well furnish and decorated so cute. It is also convenient to everything you need. Being able to park underneath is also great. And the access to the beach is perfect! Randy and Lisa are easy to work with and makes the process so easy. We discovered new restaurants - thanks to the list that was in the condo. A couple were out where we probably would never have discovered them if we hadn't been tipped off! There are so many great places to eat around here!

We look forward to coming back here next August. It is the perfect getaway!
