  • Description

    We have just bought this Moris Beach vacation rental this past summer and have done a complete makeover inside. We decided that we wanted to give it a little more intimate feel with the king bed in the bedroom. We have put in all new furniture in the living room and installed new carpet. The whole interior has been repainted in a soothing color. 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. We can sleep a maximum of 5 people.

    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.

    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.

    • The Most Amazing Condo!

      Reviewed by Jaleesa R. on October 27, 2014 for their trip during October 01, 2014

      My husband and I stayed at the condo for our little honeymoon/vacation in October for 4 nights, and it was extremely affordable. The pictures do no justice because it is absolutely AMAZING. The condo was very very clean and up to date with all the amenities. Wait, did I mention how amazingly clean the condo is?!? So Amazing!!!! The bed was also very huge and comfortable. We also enjoyed the beach being directly across the street and everything else in walking distance. The location is PERFECT!!! Not to mention Walmart is a about 1.5 miles away. The owners are also very nice. They made sure that they sent out a little information packet which had everything we needed to know about the condo as well as great suggestions for dining out and having fun! This is hands down our first choice to stay while in Gulf Shores.

      Reviewed by Josh from Evansville, IN on October 07, 2014 for their trip during September 01, 2014

      This was my wife and I's first visit to Gulf Shores. This place was the perfect size for us and had everything that we needed. Situated right across the street from the beach it is in a great location. It takes less than 3 minutes to walk to the beach and it is beautiful. The owners were delightful to work with and talk to. We will definitely be looking to stay here again in the future.

      Reviewed by lulu bell from knoxville, tennessee on September 26, 2014 for their trip during September 01, 2014

      This was the first time I booked my own condo. IT was only my husband and I and this condo was perfect. It was very clean and well stocked with about all you need for a short stay. Access to the beach was easy. I really enjoyed just being minutes away from everything and even the state park where we rode bikes. Randy was great to work with and he calmed alot of my fears about renting. If we go back to gulf shores I would not hesitate to rent from him again. I recommend this condo highly.

      Owner Response: We appreciate this couple coming to our condo. Part of my responsibility as an owner is to help a guest through the whole process from the first inquiry to departing from the condo. Once a guest has become comfortable with this way of renting a condo they rarely go back to the impersonal rental companies.

    • Wonderful condo with even more wonderful owners! Do yourself a favor and book here!

      Reviewed by Miranda & Joe from Troy, MO on September 16, 2014 for their trip during September 01, 2014

      I cannot say enough about the condo itself or the owners; both were phenominal! The condo is in great shape, was super easy to find, and was in the perfect location! The condo was clean, well decorated, and well stocked. There were added bonuses that myself and my husband greatly appreciated such as hangers in the closet, beach chairs on the balcony, a crock pot, and a blender. The king size bed was amazingly comfortable, my husband and I both slept better than we did at home, and found ourselves wanting to sleep in! The very short walk to the beach was easy and safe, and having the surf shop right next door was extremely convenient. Randy went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. He was easy to communicate with, eager to help in any way possible, and an all around generous person. When I told him the trip was a surprise for my husband he was very accomodating in sending the information to my parents address so he wouldn't find out about it and I greatly appreciated that! I can honestly say he was one of the nicest people I've ever come across without ever even meeting him. Thank you Randy for going above and beyond my expectations and for making my vacation a wonderful experience! We can't wait to come back next year and stay longer!

    • Wonderful, simply wonderful!

      Reviewed by Chelsea from Lafayette, Louisiana on August 22, 2014 for their trip during August 01, 2014

      I am actually writing this review while sitting in the condo now! As previous reviews have stated, the pictures do not do this condo justice. You can tell, without a doubt, that Randy and Lisa take pride in their condos and their condo's appearance. Randy was very friendly and helpful with every question I had, and my boyfriend and I appreciated all the recommendations he made for us. I would definitely recommend this condo for any couple or small family, it is the perfect size. I actually expected the beach to be a little further away than what it is so that was extremely nice. Being in such a great location, our vehicle didn't move from the parking spot except when we went to the grocery store or to the outlet mall. We walked to the hangout, the beach, and little surf shops (one RIGHT next door) I would not rent with anyone else if I ever returned to Gulf Shores!! Thank you so much for making our vacation that much better with this wonderful condo.

    • Nice condo in great location

      Reviewed by superjefa82 from Northwest Arkansas on July 30, 2014 for their trip during June 01, 2014

      This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our first time using VRBO. We couldn't have picked a better condo! The location was great. With 3 small kids in tow we loved the convenience of being right across the street from the beach and having a crosswalk and signal to get there. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very easy to work with; everything was explained and simple. We will be staying here again.

    • Great Condo for Couples or a Young Family

      Reviewed by Hanging Out from Fort Worth, TX on May 22, 2014 for their trip during May 01, 2014

      My girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend during Gulf Shores' annual music festival. The condo is very clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. We walked to the beach every morning, and enjoyed both the water and the people that were on the section of beach just across the street from this condo. The short walking distance, well under a mile, to several shops and restaurants was perfect for us since we didn't bring a car. We had a great time. The owners are professional and easy to work with. They explained all the costs up front, recommended things to do and places to eat, and after we left they had our deposit returned in three days. We will be looking at this owner's personal website first the next time we head for Gulf Shores.

    • We Loved Our Stay!

      Reviewed by Meagan Harris from Benton, AR on April 08, 2014 for their trip during March 01, 2014

      First time using VRBO and so very pleased! I?ve always stayed in hotels on the beach in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. This property is ideally located Gulf Shores. This was a perfect place to stay, located within minutes (walking distance) from The Hangout and so much more! The condo was more than we could ask for and the photos accurately described the property. The owners, Lisa and Randy were more than wonderful throughout the process, offering helpful travel tips into Mobile during the traffic peak times. My son loved walking across the street to the beach in the mornings to look for seashells...or running there in the evenings looking for crabs! We all came away with the best family memories. Thank you for such a great place to stay. Randy, you were a pleasure to work with! Gracious, polite, and very accommodating. No one could ask for more from an owner. Thank you.

      Reviewed by Kate from Franklin, Indiana on March 12, 2014 for their trip during January 01, 2014

      This is the 4th time we've stayed at Randy's condo. Cleanliness and comfort are our main requirements and the condo fits the bill.the location is perfect also. The beach is across the street,and a number of restaurants are within walking distance.Gulfside Grill is one of our favorites, but there's also Sea and Suds , Best Western Pancake House, and the Hangout. The Wharf and Pelican Place are a short drive away and have many restaurants as well as shopping. Rouses just opened up a new grocery store which brings the flavors of New Orleans to the Gulf Coast. The Bodenhamer Rec. Center has exercise classes, a weight room and wonderful swimming pool for those wanting to maintain their fitness programs. There's something going on all the time in Gulf Shores and Orange beach , from art fairs to musical presentations so there's no reason to be bored if you want something other than beaching, and this condo is the perfect place for your holiday.

    • Excellent!!!

      This was our first time to stay in a condo like this! We normally stay in the high rise condos! I will try my best to stay in one of Randy's condos from now on! We were very surprised at the level of cleanliness! It was spotless! It was also in the middle of everything so you could walk to lots of places, no need to use the car too much!!! The beach was very easy to get toand not far from the condo! It was the ideal place for my family of four! Also very quiet and well stocked with everything that you would need for a long relaxing vacation!

    • Great place to stay!

      Reviewed by Jill from St. Charles MO on July 25, 2013 for their trip during July 01, 2013

      We had never used VRBO before and decided to give it a try this year. I contacted Randy to get details about the rental property and he was VERY helpful in educating us on what needed to be done to rent the property, kept in contact with us after receiving our payment, and sent us the information to get into the condo way in advance of our arrival. In addition he sent us information about things to do while we were in Gulf Shores and tips on getting the best deals while we were there! When we arrived at the condo we were surprised to see that it was better than the pictures showed. The rooms were VERY clean, the wifi, cable, microwave, and all the other appliances that you don't remember you might need are all there too! We are already thinking about going back to the condo next year because our experience with Randy was so great! I highly recommend this condo (except for the week we want to visit!!). Thank you so much Randy for making our vacation so great!

    • Excellent place to stay!

      Reviewed by Jen from Humble, Tx on June 17, 2013 for their trip during June 01, 2013

      This was our 3rd visit to Gulf Shores but our first staying at this condo. We decided to stay 2 weeks this time and are so happy we picked this place. It felt like home. The other place we stayed felt as if we could never get comfortable. This has plenty of space for everything. Nicely decorated with just about anything you could need. The beach is easily accessible across the street. We had our 6 year old and it was fine crossing the street with everything in tow. The condo even has a few beach chairs for you! The place is very quiet. Everyone here is very friendly. Just mostly families. We did a lot of takeout food from S & S down the street. We ate at Lulus, Shrimp basket, and original steamers. We also ventured out to the USS alabama. That was awesome. We also like to go to orange beach to eat and do shopping. We charted a private boat to fish. That was great too. San Roc Cay is great at helping you find what works for you. Great shops too! Of course the outlet mall is fun. Pensacola beach is just a short drive and a beautiful one. Airforce museum is awesome and free! Fair hope is a cute town. Fun to just walk around and shop and eat. We just love it here! Traveled from Houston area. All the reviews are right- all you need is some beach towels and you are set! I have zero complaints about this place! Just wonderful!! Working with Randy has been so easy. My husband an I already said next time we come here this is the place for us. I personally think waiting on elevators while you're holding all your beach gear is a pain. Here you just leave your door and walk down stairs and your there. Thank you Randy for a GREAT experience. I am recommending this place to my family and friends as well!

      Owner Response: What a great review. Our guest's however had stayed at one of our other condos down the street from here and they had the wrong link for doing the review. Although this review would also describe this condo we as owners want the review to accurately portray the condo they stayed for their 2 weeks.

      My husband and I decided to make last minute reservations for memorial weekend to stay in gulf shores and the owners were very helpful with trying to work something out with us to get us a place to stay. We are so glad they did! The condo they rented us was completely affordable for a beach vacation and convent to walking everywhere! We walked to the beach & breakfast and the surf shop next door. Loved having a personal parking spot as well. My husband had never been on a beach vacation before now and he had a wonderful time! The weather was perfect and the condo had a huge king size bed that we really needed after a long day in the waves! :) I definitely recommend staying with the Moris's they make it so easy, it's clean & you get to go in vacation not worrying about anything. We look forward to staying with them in the future!

There was beach access just across the street. We were very close to everything in Gulf Shores. The owners were very nice and very prompt with their replies to emails. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and I hope to be able to return again. I would definitely stay here again. And I just can not say enough that the owners are just wonderful people.

      This trip was the second time we stayed at the condo. The first time was for one week and this year we stayed for two weeks. Randy makes everything so easy that all you have to do is have fun. If you are looking for a place close to food & shopping you can't beat this. You will feel at home once you unlock the door. Everything you need is provided and is very clean and nicely decorated. Covered parking is a plus.

    • Very Clean and Quiet

      Reviewed by Blue Devil Visitor from Marietta, GA on September 25, 2012 for their trip during September 01, 2012

      Randy and Lisa keep a very nice, clean and quiet condo in Gulf Shores. It is exactly as advertised. The quality of the sheets, towels, bed, draperies, etc., was all top-notch. It does not face the road (and therefore the beach), which to me is a good thing as it was quiet. It is on the 3rd floor, which means a little more stairs but a lot more quiet. It is not EXACTLY one bedroom, as the main sleeping area is not separated from the main area by a door that can close. If it is just a couple or a couple with small children, this works out fine. If this is two couples or 4-5 adults, just understand that the privacy is not the same as a separate bedroom. Having two parking places in the shade is a great feature during the hot months. It is tight between the pilings, but worth the trouble of parking carefully. Centrally located, so you can walk lots of places - Sea n' Suds is right across the street, for instance. POSITVES: Good value for the $, helpful and accessable owners, central location, CLEAN & QUIET. NEGATIVES: Nothing to speak of. I could not figure out the coffee maker. The fiberglass tub insert will need to be replaced someday but it was very clean and drained well. There is no icemaker in the fridge, so you will need to stock your cooler elsewhere. If you've read this far, you know Gentle Winds East is not a high-rise with a balcony on the beach. As long as you know what you are looking at, I would definitely reccomend this condo to friends and family.

      Owner Response: We appreciate this couple spending a weekend at our condo. Our complex has assigned parking underneath the condos. Our condo is on the 2nd floor above the parking underneath. The condo is not an efficiency where the everything is in the same room. Our bedroom and the living room area is separated by an approximate 12' hallway. The bath is between the bedroom and living room area thus creating separation.

      We had a wonderful experience staying at this condo. Randy was very easy to work with and answered all of my questions quickly. I never felt as though I didn't know what to expect and since this was the first time I was renting a condo and the first time I was using this website, I couldn't have been more pleased. We loved the condo and it suited our needs perfectly. We knew exactly what we were getting and there were no surprises with the appearance of the unit or the location. There was only two of us traveling this time and we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to get to. The location in Gulf Shores was accessible and we were close to activities in Orange Beach as well. The condo is perfect for a couple and even a small family. We loved the Pier and visited that our last night there. The beach location across the street was in front of two other condo units, but we never felt crowded. We visited during the first week of August, so the crowds were much smaller also, but the weather was amazing. There were many amazing restaurants all within 5 minutes or less of the condo, DeSoto's is one I would recommend. We would definitely rent this condo again and wouldn't hesitate to rent a different unit from Randy. You can tell that he likes providing this service and takes pride in his properties.

It was easy to find and was directly beside the Waffle House. The beach was right across the street and we felt comfortable going back and forth. The noise level from around the condo was kept to a minimum. Also having a laundry facility to use was great. I would definitely recommend this condo to a small family or just a couple wanting to get away. Can't wait til we can go back.

      I have never stayed in a place where the owner was so accomadating! I first came in contact with Randy and his wife while looking for a condo in Gulf Shores on VRBO. I contacted him about another condo he had, but while I was waitng to hear back from my friend as to whether she could go or not the condo was rented. He was so nice in letting me know that he had one that would become available, he had just purchased in a couple of weeks...he stayed in contact with me all the way until it was ready to rent even sending me pictures of it when he had finished the makeover so i could see what it looked like! You just don't get the kind of one on one treatment they gave to me any more. I have never been so pleased! The pictures he has posted tell it all ! What a beautiful place he and his wife have created. We were just right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of several resturants. With it being just me and another girlfriend it was a place we felt very safe in and around also. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. I know I'm already planning another trip back in the fall!

      Owner Response: We appreciated the faith this guest put in us by renting our condo before we had even done the makeover of the condo. We raced to get done with it just like they do on HGTV but we did it!
