Best Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a place right on the beach with a great sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico and that’s what we got. Fairwinds only has 8 units in the entire building (and only one was occupied while we were there) so the pool area and beach out front felt like our own private resort.

Based on the pictures on the website we were expecting a great place but we were blown away by the size of the unit, the view and by just how comfortable we felt as soon as we walked in the door. The owners, Greg and Carolyn, were very accommodating and easy to deal with. We had a great time and would recommend this property without hesitation!

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do no do this condo justice! It was absolutely gorgeous and we were completely blown away as soon as we walked through the front door! The condo itself is huge and has everything we could ask for. The kitchen was beautiful and had every appliance we needed and more; cooking and baking was a pleasure. The coffee machine was great in the mornings and there were even travel mugs so we could take our coffees down to the beach. In the evenings, the stunning balcony was perfect for enjoying a cool drink and watching the sunset or eating our dinners on the outdoor table. We used the barbeques by the pool almost daily.

The building is literally on the beach so all you have to do is walk out the back door and you're at the ocean! They had tons of beach chairs, sun umbrellas and pool noodles for floating around. The beach itself was perfect; nice white sand and in an area where it's quiet and ends up feeling like it's your own private beach. My husband and I would take walks in the morning to a little coffee shop (best apple fritters we've ever had) or to the bird sanctuary not too too far away. The condo has a fantastic binder with great things to do in the area (ie. the coffee shop, shopping spots and great tried-and-true restaurants), although I have to admit most of our days we were perfectly happy lounging by the pool or on the beach.

One of the other things we loved about the condo was that they had most of the essentials that we hadn't thought of buying but ended up needing and loving. For example, there was detergent for the washing machine, condiments in the fridge and several spices in the pantry. Additionally, the closets were stocked with lots of towels, ones for the pool as well as for the in the bathrooms.

Clearly I can't say enough about this amazing vacation spot. We can't wait to go back this year!!

Amazing and Relaxing Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful condo with another couple for one week in June and had the most relaxing and peaceful vacation. You can tell the owners take pride in the space as it was clean and well cared for. They also ensure your stay runs smoothly, providing all the basic necessities of a beach vacation plus tons of extras for your family and friends to enjoy (ie. boardgames, lounge chairs, umbrellas).

This condo has everything! In the kitchen, a binder was made to describe and explain anything you might need for your stay and the owners have take time to put together some local menus for those nights out.

The condo itself is a beautiful, open concept space with lots of room to be with family as well as lots of space for some private moments. Also very clean. From the floors to the ceiling, you can see the space is cleaned every time a new renter comes in.

To top it off, it is steps from the beach. Just a short elevator ride and you have immediate access to the pool and hot tub, or the beach.

We will definitely be returning!

Fairwinds Condo

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very clean and very well appointed. For us, it was very much our second home. Not only is it a pleasure to live in but also to cook in. We are avid cooks and Carolyn's kitchen is fully equipped. There is more than ample bedding, towels etc. for the 4 bedrooms and baths. All the small details are taken care of ie: salt, sugar, dish soap etc. The owners were quick to help us when we needed it. We would recommend this unit to both our friends and family

The condo was in a perfect quiet location with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico. In all the years of travel, my family has never experienced such a fantastic stay like this one at the " Fairwinds" in Indian Shores. The owner's, Greg and Carolyn were very pleasant and a pleasure to deal with. Upon arrival, Greg and Carolyn provide us with a huge bowl of fresh fruits and a fridge full of refreshments, Wow !

As we live in a 3700 sf back home, we felt right at home when we arrived. The gourmet kitchen was over the top with everything you would ever need including granite countertops and sub zero appliances. Like other reviews state, all you need to bring is your cloths as everything else is supplied for your stay including towels, sun tan lotion, soap, shampoo and a medicine cabinet. The condo is located near many great restaurants within walking distance. I could not believe that we had our own 2 car garage and an elevator that takes you right up to your front door of the condo.

It was very convenient to have each bedroom having its own bathroom. My entire family would get ready at the same time when going out for the evening, how good is that? The balcony overlooking the ocean and the pool was very private and fully furnished with everything you need including piped in music, what a view !

Greg and Carolyn are very honest and straight forward to deal with, they delivered what they promised. We were honoured to have the opportunity to get together and meet them both one afternoon, that does not happen often with condo owners. They were very accommodating and wanted us to have everything we needed for a perfect stay. We enjoyed the pool and the ocean everyday as it seemed we were always the only ones out there in our private paradise. We also enjoyed cooking on the BBQ overlooking the beach area.

All I could say is a big thank you to Greg and Carolyn for making this the best vacation yet. We are planning to go back this coming August once again. I would not hesitate in recommending this condo to any family members and friends.

Paradise at Fair Winds

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing at Florida beaches for over 30 years as both my husband I are native Floridians who return home at least once a year. Our month’s stay this year was the best yet, thanks to the fabulous condo we selected at Fair Winds in Indian Shores Beach. From the time we stepped off the elevator and entered directly into the magnificent foyer, we were in awe of this beautiful condo. There was a nice powder room off the foyer for guests. Now imagine, a huge covered balcony beautifully furnished overlooking the Gulf of Mexico where we enjoyed our naps during the day. In the evening we viewed spectacular sunsets from our private balcony where we listened to our favorite music provided by outdoor speakers. The private pool and spa overlooked the gulf. The owners were a pleasure to work with to assure that our accommodations were exactly to our liking. The condo was well stocked with all the necessaries, including plenty of bath and beach towels, extra linens, and many more extra’s that had never been provided at other beach rentals. The magnificent Gourmet kitchen was even equipped with all the spices and cooking utensils that we needed. We were totally spoiled with a large pantry, six burner gas stove, and sub zero refrigerator. The granite countertops provided us with lots of room for cooking and comfortable seating where our guests enjoyed watching us cook! In addition to the nice size breakfast area off from the kitchen, we dined around a gorgeous round table that seats 12 comfortably under a candle lit chandelier. We loved the revolving lazy susan attached in the center of the table for added convenience. The large living area was spacious, as were the other separate areas set up for watching TV or partaking in other activities. Great to have all three bedrooms with private baths, and immaculately clean. In the oversized Master bath there was a walk-in shower with double shower heads. The den with pull out sofa bed is perfect to use as a fourth bedroom. We had family members and friends visit us during our stay and we never felt cramped for space. Believe me there was nothing unthought of to make this condo an outstanding choice for anyone who loves beach living at its best. My husband said he would not have written such a favorable review as he wants to keep this place our little secret so it will always be available whenever we want to return, and we can't wait until next time!
