Located in Orange Beach, Four Winds 703 is a one bedroom/one bath newly renovated condo. Tile throughout that even extends onto the balcony. Custom painted, new furnishings and bedding with all new flat screen TV's in the living area and master bedroom. The dining area seats four along with two additional bar stools.

Minimum age to rent is 25 years old.
This was a great place for a family with two small children. The bunks were smaller than normal twin beds, or so it seemed. The kids loved them. Bunks were a must with my kids. It would have been nice to have some light weight curtains that could be drawn over the beds to help make it darker and more private when kids are sleeping (especially if napping and others are awake). We loved the location and we enjoyed watching the waves (and dolphins on the first day) from the balcony. It would have been nice to just have one extra roll of toilet paper, a couple trash bags, and a roll of paper towels. I knew these items weren't provided but it would have made life easier. An entry rug would be nice to help with sand, I had to sweep every day. A swiffer would have been nice too. The humidity was high and I assume that is why the paint looked thick and peeling in a few spots. Just cosmetic. The pool was small but the perfect temperature and a nice place to gather to meet other travelers. Overall we were pleased with our stay.
The condo itself is not too bad. We did have issues with the vacuum cleaner not picking up anything (although most guests might not be tempted to vacuum while they are on vacation) and the TV remote malfunctioning. These were reported and the offer to fix the issues was made in a timely manner.
The condo sleeps six. Maybe most visitors eat out every meal, so the kitchen doesn't rank much attention. However, there are just about only enough dishes for 6 guests to eat one meal before having to run the dishwasher. For us, this meant running the dishwasher after every meal. Two of the cooking pans had broken handles. There were only wine glasses and a few juice glasses-no glasses for tall, cold drinks. As other guests have stated, there is little storage space for guests' belongings. The master bedroom has 2 drawers. The guests using the bunks and the sleep sofa have to live out of their suitcases. Also, I don't remember this being an issue in previous stays at other condos, but this one was exceedingly damp all the time.
We will definitely be going back! The condo was awesome!! Right on the beach where it wasn't very crowded even with the holiday! It's a great location and close to florabama for the younger crowd. The rooms was super clean and had plenty of room. I would recommend this place to anyone with kids or just adults.
This condo was perfect for a long weekend getaway for my husband and me. The location was extremely convenient to everything and the view was spectacular. We watched pelicans dive for their breakfast and dolphins swimming along the shore from the 7th floor balcony while sipping our coffee in the morning. The sunsets were incredible. We even lucked up on a Mardi Gras parade right in front of the condo! This place is clean and everything was in working order. We couldn't have been happier (except to stay permanently.). Thanks for a great vacation.
Overall this condo met our needs. Easy to park, load/unload and easy access to the beach. The condo is in a good location and I liked having full size laundry equipment. It was comfortable enough, but there is not much storage so there was some living out of the suitcases. I appreciated the review about bringing extra bath towels as we had 5 people and only 6 towels so we were prepared upon arriving.
We have stayed at Four Winds several times but wanted to go for a shorter trip this time, so we thought we'd give 703 a try. There were several issues we encountered with the condo. We understand no condo will be in stellar condition, but thought you may want to know about these issues:
Bedroom: the sheets didn't feel or smell clean, we washed them after the first night. The drawers in the dresser smelled musty/moldy and we didn't use them at all.
Bathroom: the shower and sink drained very slowly, we stood in water during every shower. It would have been nice to have a few more towels and washrags so we wouldn't have had to wash/dry them so frequently.
Kitchen: several of the dishes that had been put away were not clean, there were very few cups that were kid friendly, and not near enough spoons and forks. The light bulb above the stove was burnt out.
Balcony: the door was very hard to open, and the sealing around it was coming off, we left it dangling. The white lounge chair on the balcony was disgusting, needs some serious Mr. Clean Magic Eraser work, and the arms of the patio table chairs were sticky and dirty.
