Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Now that you have found us,...take a look! We wanted to give our condo an intimate feel in decorating it. Sometimes the vacation is all about doing a lot of things but sometimes it is about slowing it down and relaxing. We’ve tried to create an atmosphere in our place that would give you that comfortable and peaceful feeling. Everything was done to make this a vacation to remember.

We are big, really big, on cleanliness. When we go on vacation ourselves it is the first thing we want to know when staying somewhere. We do our own managing and cleaning so we make sure that the condo is immaculate when you arrive. Our goal also is to create a place that is affordable but also elegant. A place where you feel like you got more than your money’s worth. We really are ideal for couples, small families or a getaway for best friends.

Our complex is located directly across the street from the beach. No long walks. We walk safely over with a traffic light right on our corner and you are standing on the beach in 3 minutes after walking out the front door. Gentle Winds is close to everything. You will be able to walk to restaurants and shops. The public beach area is only 3/8ths of a mile away to visit The Hangout or other popular places down there.

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.

We have used our experience in having four condos in making your vacation a great memory. Our goal is to have you come back over and over again. Thank you for considering our condo and any of our other places too.

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.

Randy Moris purchased this condo in 2012

Why Randy Moris chose Gulf Shores

Everyone should have the opportunity to come to the beach on vacation. Our condo is affordable and makes this possible for so many.

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!

Beautiful and cozy condo across from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this condominium for our honeymoon and it was spectacular! Mr. and Mrs. Moris were incredible to work with in the time leading up to our stay and during; any questions that we had about the unit or activities/locales near by were either available in the great reference binder they have in the unit or by contacting Mr. Moris. The beach access is across the main road (Beach Boulevard) in-between two condo buildings and presented zero issues in easily walking to the beautiful beach. The unit is furnished with a large bed by the entrance and the kitchen/living room area is comfortable and great in which to relax; my wife and I spent a lot of our time relaxing in the living room area reading and relaxing since we have the great timing of visiting during a tropical storm! The location of the condo is great for driving around Gulf Shores, it is less than a half mile from the main "T" that comes into Beach Boulevard.

We recommend this condominium and renting from Mr. and Mrs. Moris with the utmost encouragement. It was a stupendous place to stay for the week and we hope to rent this condo again when next we visit Gulf Shores!

You get what you pay for

  • 3 of 5

I booked this location due to the low price and close proximity to the beach. It got the job done, but left a bit to be desired. My son had issues connecting to the internet a couple of times but the owner helped us by giving us a second password. The kitchen was very small with no counter space for food prep. Although they say everything was provided to prep a meal, they delivered on pots and pans but only salt and pepper was in the pantry. The condo does need upgrading and the bathtub only gave the option for a shower because the shower valve was stuck open. My biggest gripe was the fact that the laundry is coin operated, I know that was mentioned in my pamphlet but there was no change machine at the location. One of the reasons that I choose the condo/apartment locations if for access and comforts of home. Having to pay to do laundry is rather bogus. Other than that, it was nice, the bed was comfortable. Plus being able to walk everywhere was a bonus.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the review from our guest even though it was only a 3 star review. That was our first one under 4 stars but every guest has every right to review as they see things. Our condo is a 1BR/1BA and is not large. We have decorated it nicely and try to give it a cozy feel. I honestly hadn't thought that meal prep meant leaving all the spices, etc since they would already be open and maybe not safe. We take out leftover groceries except for salt and pepper. The valve in the bathtub pulls out allowing the tub faucet to work. Sometimes the valve is stuck and just has to be pulled out to make the faucet work too. Gentle Winds has a laundry room on the ground floor with 2 washer and 2 dryers that are coin operated. There are only about 8 units at the complex that are rented out of 16 total so there isn't traffic using the laundry room. We have owned this condo since 2012 and have had many, many 5 star reviews due to the relationship I try to build with guests and make myself available right away when needed. We always try to correct any problem as soon as it is brought to our attention as this results in return business when the guest knows they are a priority. We appreciate Edward coming.

Cozy, neat, and had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! It was our first time in Gulf Shores, and these owners made it easy. We had everything we needed, including information on the area and how to enjoy the beach! It was great to be able to cook and be so close to the beach. Everything was ready for us ms easy to manage. We highly recommend this owner!

Outstanding Condo, Excellent Value, Awesome Owners

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our vacation. I'm single mom and this was the first time I had rented a condo and I was nervous, but Randy answered all of my questions.

We loved the location. We missed out on a lot of the noise of being on the beach and being across the street was no big deal.

The condo itself is small, but in immaculate condition. The kitchen has every convenience to make meals and snacks for the beach. Several times I realized I forgot to bring something only to realize Randy and Lisa had already thought of it. We only ate out twice and were able to make food the rest of the time. The full size refrigerator had more than enough room for all of our food and bottled water.

The king size bed in the bedroom was a nice luxury and comfortable. I loved having TVs in both the bedroom and the living room.

Overall the condo made for a perfect vacation. Randy was always available for any questions that arose. The only issue I found is my son is already asking to come back next year!!

Great place to stay that is nearby everything, and at a reasonable rate.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place at the very last minute (which can sometimes be scary). We were very satisfied with the property and had great correspondence with the owner who made sure we had whatever we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The property is right across the street from the beach that had easy access. Walmart was about a mile away which was handy when it came to getting the things we needed. My wife and family have already discussed our next trip to Gulf Shores, and booking this property will most definitely be considered.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot to vacation. The beach is beautiful, the location is perfect within walking distance to everything. I appreciated how friendly the owner Randy was, and that he took the time to speak with me and offer some great tips. The condo was lovely and clean, and had enough towels for the entire visit. I get up really early and loved the convenience of morning coffee right next door at the Waffle House, without having to wake anyone. I found the travel to Alabama easier and faster from Indiana, the prices a bit cheaper and beaches just as nice as the Florida beaches we always visit. We will absolutely return to Gulf Shores and to one of Randy's condo's just as soon as possible.
