Overview

Gulf Shores Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full Baths, 1400 Sq Ft, Beachfront Pool, Max Occupancy - 8.

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 HD TV in LR and all BRs. Free Wireless Internet.

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. We also have a new Boardwalk to the Beach.

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.

Excellent, family condo!!!

  • 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!!!

The property and condo was very beautiful and well maintained. The condo was well furnished and very comfortable. The location was excellent. Very close to everything but not so close to be crowded. I definitely will book again.

Our new favorite place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed in many different condos in Gulf Shores over the years, but this Tropical Winds unit is our new favorite. We stayed with our two grown children and they appreciated having their own rooms and baths. All the beds were comfortable. Everything worked properly. The unit was very, very clean. The location was convenient. We really liked having the keys in hand & not needing to find a realtor's office to check in. Carol, the owner, was great to work with. We ate at Fish River Grill, which was delicious as always. The pizza restaurant across the road was also very good. The only activity we were interested in was relaxing on the beach, so we also loved the chairs and umbrella provided for our use. We definitely recommend this condo and will likely stay here again.

GREAT

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year we have stayed at tropical wind 504 and we have already booked for next year. Our family has been going to Gulf Shores for 15 years by far this is the best place for us. This year our whole family was in the same building we had such a great time and made a lot of memories. If you are looking for a great clean and well kept place for your vacation Tropical Winds 504 is your place. Sandra McCloud

Spring Break, 2016, in Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loves this complex, and particularly this unit. When given their choice of where to go for Spring Break this year, our 27 year old son and 15 year old niece, both responded with this as their choice of destination without hesitating. Quite a compliment when you consider that London and Paris have been two of their destination choices the past few years. Their choice made us happy, as we love it as well.

We have stayed in this complex more than 10 times over the years and have never been disappointed. The first 5-6 years, we stayed in various units, which all were much more than satisfactory. We eventually stayed in Carol’s unit and found our version of paradise. It was “the best.” We have consistently used this unit since, with the exception of one year when it was not available.

The unit surpasses all others in virtually every area that we have considered. Condition, workmanship, furnishings, kitchen, televisions, cleanliness, .etc. all set this unit apart. In addition, Carol, the owner, has always been exceptionally easy to work with and extremely cooperative. Some other units may rival Carol’s in a few of the areas, but none approaches it overall.

I guess the highest praise is that our family unanimously decided to book the unit for 2 weeks for Spring Break, 2017. We have never booked that far ahead before, and we are anxiously awaiting our return.
