Gentle Winds B3 ** Elegant & Affordable ** Make Memories This Year!!
Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States 36542
We are so glad you found our place. Gulf Shores is a great place to come for a vacation. I think everyone loves coming to the beach and we have tried to provide a condo at a great price throughout the year. Our goal was to make OurGulfShoresCondo.com beach condo just the way we would like it to be when we are on vacation. Of course you want your vacation home away from home to be fun but you also want it to comfortable like home. We have accomplished that by using up to date furnishings and completely furnishing it so you don?t have to bring your whole house with you.
Lisa and I are almost fanatic when it comes to cleanliness. We make sure that everyone who comes to our Gulf Shores condo are happy the moment they walk inside to see how clean everything is. Since we do our own cleaning we try not to miss a thing. I think everyone has stayed somewhere before when it wasn't as clean as it should be so we are absolutely determined that you will never say that about our condo.
We are located only 3/8th of a mile from the main intersection at the end of Hwy 59 where the public beach is. That puts us in a super convenient area for walking to restaurants, shopping and other forms of entertainment. If you have heard of The Hangout then we are just down the street a little over ¼ mile away. The popular Sea-n-Suds on a pier is right across the street from our complex. Wide walking, running or biking lanes along Beach Blvd make it safe to go where you want by foot. That's why we love our location.
Gulf Shores is just south of Foley, AL about 6 miles and if you like to shop there is the Tanger Outlet with about 150 stores. All the chain restaurants are in Foley. Gulf Shores has the local flavored restaurants like Lulu?s, The Original Oyster House, Tacky Jack?s, Bahama Bob?s, The Shrimp Basket, Ribs & Reds, The Islander. The bottom line is that we have the most beautiful, blindingly white beaches in the world. We hope you will want to consider our condo for your next visit.

Small condo in the middle of Gulf Shores. Everything was clean, worked properly and looked like the pictures in the posting. This the 3rd condo we have rented from Randy and they all have been clean and as advertised. He is very accessible if you do have a question and it is obvious Randy and Lisa take great pride in their rental units. The booking process is incredibly easy with no hidden fees. If you are looking for a luxury high-rise this may not be your cup of tea. If you are like us and want a clean comfortable rental to come back to in the evening at a very affordable price you have found it.
This condo is very clean and has everything you need. The location is great and we were able to walk to the beach and many stores and restaurants. My only issue with the condo is that it is listed as a 1 bedroom, but there is only a curtain separating the sleeping area with the living area making it a studio in my opinion. If it were just us it would not be a problem, but traveling with a toddler you need to be able to have more division between the areas for naps and sleeping. One thing to be aware of is that you need to bring quarters for the laundry as there is no change machine nearby.
We appreciate Becca and her family coming to our condo this week. They did a great job inside and we really appreciate that. Our condo is a 1 bedroom condo. Our living room and bedroom has a 10'' hallway separating them with a large bathroom in between off the hall. A studio has the living room, bed and kitchen all in the same room. We have separation from the bedroom and the living room and kitchen. Quarters are needed for the laundry room and our rental guidelines has a sentence about that in the instructions and what all we have at the condo and complex.
We stayed the 3rd week of July with 2 adults and 4 kids. The whole condo was impressively clean. The kitchen was equipped with every utensil you could imagine needing down to a cockpot and blender. The walk to the beach was directly across the street with a traffic walk way. My only small complaint was the laundry room. There was only 2 washers and 2 dryers, so a few times I went down to start laundry they were both in use. We had a great vacation and highly recommend this condo and the owners.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and it couldn't have been better. The condo was exactly as the pictures were and the location was perfect! It is directly across from the beach and very convenient to other restaurants. My husband and I walked to several restaurants that were close by. The condo was very clean and in great condition. We would definitely stay here again!
We loved staying in this condo and the location was amazing! Right across the street from the beach and Sea n Suds restaurant that had delicious peel and eat shrimp and great Long Island Teas! The condo itself was perfectly furnished and had everything you need to make your own meals, which was important to me. Internet and satellite tv was nice to have too! The owners were so easy to deal with and keep the condo in great condition. We LOVED Gulf Shores and cannot wait to come back!
The owner, Randy, is a pleasure to work with. He went out of his way to accommodate us for a last minute trip. He clearly takes pride in satisfying his guests and making sure they have a happy stay. This place is in prime location- within steps to everything you need. We will be back!😎
My family and I stayed at this condo for three days it was the best decision I could've made. The owner was very fast to respond to every message, concern or question I had. The condo itself was clean; all hardwood floors and tile (so no ground-in sand or carpet stains to worry about). towels and extra pillows, blankets were available.The bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable, with a pull-out sofa in the living room, which was perfect because my very tall teenage boys didn't have to fight over bed space! There were a sliding doors to the deck/porch, so it was nice to go out there early in the morning to read and enjoy the beautifu weather. The location was superb! 2 mis walk to the beach, with a lifeguard station right there where you walked on. We felt safe walking back and forth from the condo to the beach at any time of the day. The showers for rinsing sand were right at the bottom of the stairs to walk up to the condo, which I felt was perfectly located. Everything was in walking distance, and if you are lover for waffle house there is one almost ajointed to the condo. Had plesure meeting tje owner Randy Beautiful soul inside out he was very warmth towards us. we are looking forward going back may of 2017
We don't often get to meet our guests but Sandy was on her balcony and I was working below and got to meet her and have a nice conversation. We really appreciate them coming so far for their stay. Our beach access onto the beach is directly across the street from us. We have a traffic light next to us to safely walk over and go straight onto the beach. From front door of condo to standing on the beach takes about 3 minutes.
The location is directly at the safe, convenient traffic light, deeded access, paved walkway to the sugar sands and emerald waters near the Sea-N-Suds restaurant. You are not directly on the beach but this is evident by the most fair and economical price. The short walk is a piece of cake and is truly just a few steps further than the pricier condos directly on the beach. While the condo is smaller the open floor plan allows for plenty of space, bedding and seating for four people. We had more than ample adequate space and seating for all! The beds and bedding are clean and comfortable. The A/C works great. The kitchen has everything you need with full size fridge but smaller stove and dishwasher and microwave. We cooked all our main meals in the condo. Everything we needed was there including a blender. The bathroom is a good size with eight towels, wash clothes and hand towels with three very over-sized drawers for storage, nice clean shower and tub. The round glass kitchen table has comfy seating for four with additional bar stools off the kitchen bar. A long hall closet and chest of drawers in the bedroom made for plenty of storage for all of our clothes. A small wooden balcony overlooks beach houses and a dumpster. The balconies are in close proximity which was a bit annoying when neighbors were smoking. Still it was nice to have a small outdoor area. The glass sliding door was a challenge to open, close and lock. The only real complaint is no fault of the owners was the street noise and noise from the hallway and stairs. The weekend, party in the hallways and stairway was louder than the weekday noise. There are signs posted in the hallway requesting to keep halls quiet. There is no washer and dryer in the unit but the property does have a coin operated washer and dryer downstairs. Two porch swings and a charcoal grill are available downstairs as well which was wonderful. The assigned parking was a challenge getting in and out of with our large truck but on the other hand it was really nice having the covered parking! The unit is tastefully, comfortably and adequately decorated. I would stay here again and would recommend especially for the budget minded. However, due to the hallway noise I might bring a box fan to help drown out the cars, chatter, footsteps and crying children.
As usual, I cannot express how pleased I am about our stay. I rented this room for a friend of mine as the last minute. I was extremely pleased at the service i received and the room itself. The room was very clean and ready for vacationing! Very spacious for a family of 4. The kids had a great time and accommodations are perfect. Right across from the beach.. now that made live easier when you have 3 kids! Cant wait til next year when we can come back and do this all over again.. Everything that we needed was in walking distance.
I was in town for business and brought my family along to enjoy the beach. Although not beach front, it was no problem crossing at the light. We enjoyed the shaded parking in the June heat and the fully stocked kitchen. Communication with the owners is always answered promptly. We WILL be back!!
We had a wonderful time at the Moris' condo in Gulf Shores. When we walked in my daughters squealed 'How pretty!" The condo was clean and furnished well. We found everything we needed for our time there. The condo is centrally located--a walk across the street and we were at the beach, restaurants were very close, and mopeds could be rented 3-4 blocks away. We had a minor problem with the air conditioner when we were there and the Morises were 'uber' responsive and friendly about it. They addressed the problem immediately. You can't miss with this condo in Gulf Shores!
My wife and I traveled down to Gulf Shores to get away one last time before our baby girl comes. We were really pleased with the location of their condo, very close to everything. The condo was very comfortable clean and well stocked. The outlets in Foley are great, and Rouse Grocery is my favorite place to shop for food (good hot food bar there as well) also, if you have a sweet tooth, hopes cheese cake is a lesser known shop located just a few miles from the condo or if ice cream is more up your alley, Matts is one of the best places to get home made ice cream. Overall we had a very relaxing stay. thanks!
I called Randy to see if he had an opening on a spur of the moment trip my husband, daughter and I decided to take for mother’s day and to my delight he did. He told me that he needed to get the condo cleaned since he just had a family to leave, and then we could stay there. I was not expecting too much; however, to my delight the room was very nice. The room was very modern and the way he and his wife had designed it to utilize of all the space was great and thoughtful. The beds were very comfortable and the couch lets out into a bed and it was also comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with all the convenience from home so you do not need to bring anything to cook with. We were so impressed with the place that we invited my in-laws to celebrate mother’s day with us there. That was 4 adults and 2 children in the condo and with everyone having enough space to feel comfortable and relax. The condo was beside a gift store that carried anything that you could have forgotten to bring from home. The beach access was at the red light next to the condo. The button to push was there also at the red light to change the light so getting to the beach was safe. The actual beach was family orientated and was beautiful. The Moris’s also took the time to write down some of their favorite spots and places to go. I found that to be very helpful and thoughtful of them to do. I would recommend staying there. Kori Davis
Randy could not be any more pleasant to deal with. Thank you, Randy! This condo has all of the comforts and amenities that you need for a quaint, little beach stay. Beach access was super easy! Our family really enjoyed ourselves. So, lots of positives. Very few negatives. This is beyond the owner's control, but the outside walkway is can be quite noisy at night, depending on the traffic. I could easily chalk it up to spring breakers, since that's the weak we were traveling on, but anyone talking above a whisper penetrates right into the bedroom. Fortunately, my kids slept right through it. But momma bear is such a light sleeper, so it was hard for me. I slept in the bed with one of my kiddos, while my husband and another munchkin slept on the couches in the living area. This was because we didn't think we'd be comfortable sleeping on the pullout together. We could have easily been wrong about that, but we didn't try. The curtain separating the rooms was totally fine. Our kids are 13 & under, so extreme privacy wasn't necessary. The arrangements were just fine for us. Our favorite outings were the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo & seeing the Blue Angels practice at the Naval Air Museum, just a short 40 minute drive over to Pensacola. Definitely worth it!! We loved dining at The Original Oyster House, Janino's Pizza, and had a fun time at Pirate's Island Adventure mini golf. Also the walk to the Gulf State Park Pier was really nice. It's fun to play on the beach in front of the protected areas. We'd walk down and camp out for a bit in a pristine, and less crowded area. The walk was great exercise too! Hope this helps. It really is a nice place. Have fun at the beach!! =)
Absolutely loved this condo! Very clean, comfortable, and homey. Comfortable beds and couches. Randy was great to work with! He gave me different ideas on where to eat and what to do since it was our first time to Gulf Shores, and his response time was always very quick. 2 minute walk to the beach. Walking distance to several different restaurants. I would recommend it to anyone! We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to Gulf Shores!
We loved this condo! From the first time I was in contact with Randy, it was a very pleasant experience. He responded to my emails almost instantly, and answered all of our questions that we had. The condo itself was great, we really felt like we were at home. The place was very clean and neat, and had anything you could possibly need in the kitchen. The beds and couches were very comfortable, which is a really amazing thing to have after being out and about all day having fun! We definitely are coming back to Gulf Shores at some point, and we for sure will be staying at this condo again!!
This is a wonderful condo! Well furnished and very clean and the owners were a joy to work with. The condo is well located. We walked to a lot of places and when we did drive the parking under the condo made it easy to get in and go and not worry about finding a safe place for the car when we got back. It was a wonderful experience and I just wish the condo had a couple more bedrooms so we could take the family.
We appreciate Rhonda coming to our place. Our condo is a 1BR/1BA unit. We have a queen bed and full bed in the bedroom. We have a queen sleeper sofa in the living room so we are set up to accommodate families in our condo.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and Randy was extremely helpful from beginning to end. He responded to my inquiry into his condo within minutes even though it was late and we booked the very next morning. He graciously answered ALL of my emails and I sure sent him a lot. The informational packet he sent before we arrived was so helpful. He also took time out of his day to help try to locate a bag we thought we left behind when leaving. The condo was in pristine condition when we arrived. It was spotless and fully furnished with everything we needed for the week. There was even a bag of ice that made packing our cooler for the beach simple. The condo is within walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants and the famous "Hangout". There are also many things to do a short drive away. My family enjoyed going to the Outlets for shopping and to a nearby putt putt for some fun family competition. We had no complaints what so ever. When we decide to head back to Gulf Shores we will surely book with Randy!!!
Dealing with these owners was amazing. They responded to email and texts right away. They were very friendly and worked with us on going through paypal because I was nervous and had never rented a condo before. The location is very close to a lot of restaurants some in walking distance and some a little further out that some may need to drive to. Hangout (a very fun place that is like a bar but yet kid friendly) is just 3 blocks down and fun as ever. There is a Waffle house literally next door and then a souvenir shop of the other side. The beach is right across the street. Beautiful beach. This was just fun all the way around.
we stayed at this condo for a week. The condo was very nice, all necessities available that you would need. The owners was very attentive and responded immediately to our emails. The unit was very clean and quiet, we would definitely recommend this condo. It was just me and my husband we got away for our anniversary. We went on a dolphin Cruise which was awesome. At night it was very peaceful to walk on the beach. We cant wait until next year we are going back to Gulf Shores with the rest of the family. Had a wonderful time.
My husband and I stayed for a week in Gulf Shores at Randy and Lisa's condo and we couldn't have been happier. One of the biggest things that really stood out to us was how CLEAN they keep their condo. Not only is it clean, but it is in prime location. Another big plus about Randy and Lisa is how great they were about communicating. Emails were prompt (even within just hours) and always polite. This condo was perfect for just us two and would be perfect for a small family. It's safe, remote, and easy to access just about anything you could imagine wanting to do on vacation. We really appreciated the suggestions of places to eat the Randy and Lisa left for their guests (we LOVED Lambert's). The walk to the beach was effortless. It was just across one small intersection with a cross walk. We could easily go back and forth to the condo if anything was forgotten. On a side note, my husband and I got out and ran every morning with ease due to the sidewalks, fun detours on back roads, and some great little nature trails we found as well. We would DEFINITELY want to come back and highly recommend this condo to anyone who will listen!
Our family rented this condo for spring break. There were five of us; my husband and I, two teenage daughters, and our 4 year old son. Randy and Lisa were absolutely perfect to work with. They responded to our emails almost immediately, and even forwarded us additional information on area attractions, as we were not familiar with the area. The condo was beautiful, spotless, and in a supreme location. The condo is across the street from the beach, but literally a 1 minute walk to white sand. This particular condo faces the back of the building, which in our opinion was HUGE plus. Less street noise and a lot of privacy while sitting on the balcony drinking our morning coffee! We were able to walk back to the condo for meals, bathroom and to refill drinks. It was so close that I allowed our young teen girls to take walks on the beach by themselves. It was also in close proximity to all the local attractions. We walked to most shops, restaurants, and The Hangout....which our kids loved. It is also just a short drive to other attractions such as LuLus. On a side note, we drove to Pensacola one morning and visited the Naval Air Museum and also watched the Blue Angels practice! This was all free of charge and the kids loved it. We fell in love with Gulf Shores and would absolutely without a doubt rent this very condo again. And if you have children, The New Orleans Snowball stand was a few short blocks away. The BEST shaved ice ever, and the gentleman who owns it knew us by name by the end of the week. If you want a relaxing, economical week at the beach, you have found it here!
We spent the week of our 17 year old daughter's spring break in Gulf Shores. This little condo was perfect for the 3 of us. Very clean and well furnished. Very short walk to the beach and walking distance to several excellent restaurants and shops. Great communication with the owners and the price was very reasonable. We would love to come back and stay here again!!!
We spent the month of Jan. in this little treasure! Very comfortable home away from home. Exactly as pictured. We were there when it got a bit cold and the furnace works great! The area is within walking distance to restaurants, a new dollar general, souvenir shopping and the beautiful beach! There are great walking and biking trails all over. The area also caters to the snowbirds, you can stay as busy as you want with activities such as your state club, potlucks, concerts, bingo, area bus trips, snowbird food specials, classes and more! Randy and Lisa are detail people and if there is a problem they are on it! Phone calls, texts and emails are answered promptly and solutions just as fast! Very happy with the area and condo.
My husband and I spent our honeymoon in this adorable and very comfortable condo and we are so glad we found it! The owners, Randy and his wife, have been nothing but accomadating, kind, and informative. They obviously take pride in their rental and it shows through the cleanliness throughout the entire condo. The location is also perfect for anyone wanting to be close to the beach and all the restuarants and souvenir shops in Gulf Shores. We also loved that it was a quick drive into Orange Beach and Foley, a town with a great Outlet Mall. We would definitely recommend staying at this condo and we will surely be back!
This condo was exactly as it appeared in the pictures. For a small family it is perfect! My daughter and I stayed here for a week and it fullfilled all our needs. The kitchen was perfect and had all the utensils and cooking ware you would need. I love that the bathroom is large enough that two people can get ready at the same time. The beds were very comfortable. They ask that you leave the AC at 72 but I found myself putting it higher because it was very cold. As for location, it is perfect. You literally walk down the steps, walk to the light, cross the street and you are at the beach. They also have an shower head and hose so you can rinse off before going into the condo. Randy was very helpful in setting up the reservation. He kept in constent contact with me when there was a small issue with the condo upstairs during our stay. You are also within walking distance to food and shopping, and then a short drive to anything else. I would definately recommend if you have small children or if you are an avid zoo connoisseur, go to the the Gulf Shore Zoo which is only a few miles from the condo. It is by far the best little zoo I have ever been to. We will definatley be staying here again and can't wait to come back!
Stayed for a week towards the end of July. Condo was the perfect size for 4 people. Only a short walk from the beach, a large number of restaurants and tourist attractions, and gift shops. 10 minute drive from Orange Beach. Only small issue was the refrigerator wasn't working the first day because the freezer had built up a layer of ice between the two compartments. Easily solved by unplugging the fridge and sitting it on the porch. Randy was extremely helpful with this and was willing to get a repairman there ASAP. Just goes to show that he was willing to go above and beyond to make our vacation a good one. Will definitely be returning in the future!
This condo was an amazing find! We are a family of four with two young children and this place was perfect! The place was equipped with anything you would need for a week long vacation and grocery stores within a short distance. This was a very clean and organized place to stay! Everything we wanted to do was in walking distance! The beach was beautiful and clean! The local restaurants were great and decently priced! Lots of things to do that revolved around family! Randy was amazing from the very first contact to the last! We would love to visit again! Thanks for a great vacation!!!
If you are looking for quality value and convenience, this is definitely for you. Directly across the street from the beach, right next door to the Waffle House, Sea and Suds right across the street on the beach and a safe place to cross the street besides. We had the best vacation ever while staying here. Randy and Lisa are very accommodating and super easy to work with. They even included a welcome packet of all the attractions, shopping, restaurants and miscellaneous to help us thoroughly enjoy our stay. Can't stress enough if you are looking for the best value check this place out.
My family stayed for 6 nights in this beautiful condo. I liked that there weren't a lot of units in the building. It was quiet, yet close to the beach. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, but we took advantage of the awesome sea food of the local restaurants. The sea n suds right across the street was good food at a really great price. The owners always answered any questions within minutes and were very nice.
The bath/shower had mold. Never stayed at a condo in Gulf Shores that you had to pay for laundry.
We appreciate our guest for coming. We did notice a small area on the ceiling above the shower head that had a darkened area which was actually paint from wall above the shower/tub insert. At first glance it can appear to look like mildew. We simply needed to cover it with Kilz and have done so. We ask every guest to contact us immediately if they see or notice anything that isn't right and we will correct it immediately. Our complex is a 16 unit complex and we have a laundry room on the ground floor that have coin operated washers and dryers. Smaller complexes typically have coin-operated laundry rooms if the condo doesn't have washer/dryer hookups.
We had an awesome time at this condo. The location is impeccable, very close to The Hangout, a short walk across the street to the beach. Upon our arrival, we were able to easily access the condo and everything was in great condition. Randy was very accommodating, and we were supplied everything we needed for the week. Would definitely stay here again.
The Condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. I would recommend this Condo and will be staying there again. It is right across the street from the beach and close to many restaurants as well. There were five of us and we all had plenty of room in the condo. Can't wait to get back to the beach!
If you are looking for a nice place to stay that is in a central location of Gulf Shores, then this is it! The condo is conveniently located across from the beach and within walking distance of all the shops! The condo is very clean and very comfortable! It is decorated lovely! Made me feel right at home! I will definitely come back to stay at this condo again!
We spent 5 days in this condo and found it to be exceptionally clean, well decorated and supplied with everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The location gave us easy access to explore Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. It is perfect for families because the beach is literally across the street, making it easy to go back for naps, lunch, or a beach-ball. Our kids loved the zoo, the fishing pier, state park and several of the mini gulf courses which are all a short drive away. The owners suggested restaurants that were affordable and delicious. In fact Randy and Lisa were helpful from the moment we spoke on the phone till the day we checked out. It is a good place to relax and renew one's spirit. We look forward to our next trip to the Gulf and renting from the Moris' in the future.
We had the best vacation! The accommodations were even better than we expected. They were extremely clean and had everything that we needed for the entire week. The location was excellent, right across from the beach and walking distance to many restaurants and tourist spots. There was covered parking and the area was very well lit helping us to feel very safe. The reservations were easy to make and we even received a welcome packet with everything we needed to know as well as tips on what to bring, places to visit and even how to treat ocean related injuries. We were provided the owners cell phone number in case there was anything we needed while we were there. We were very pleased with both our vacation and rental accommodations. In fact, I am certain this will be a place we vacation often!'
Two of us rented this condo for four nights for the Hangout Music Festival. Our experience with the condo was better than ideal. The location could not have been any better: across the street from the beach. We were pretty much the closest you can get to the core of Gulf Shores, walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The listing photos are a true representation of the condo. It was clean, well decorated and equipped with all the promised amenities - even cuter in person than in the photos! They had WiFi, which I did not know about until our stay. Honestly, I cannot think of a negative aspect about the condo. Perfect for two adults, 4 young adults or a young family. Finally, the owner was extremely helpful in answering all my questions RIGHT AWAY.
I loved the location. The place was beyond what I expected. Everything you could possibly need was there for you to use. All kitchen stuff was included if you wanted to cook a huge meal!!!! You needed nothing in that kitchen. All bedding was brand new and the bed was just as nice as mine at home!!! I tend to feel at times when I stay somewhere else, I can feel that hundreds of other people have stayed there, not at this place. I felt at home the second I walked into the condo. It was clean... not even a grain of sand on the ground, very impressive. Everything was updated and well decorated, which is something that helps you feel more at home. Everyone around was very quite so my son was able to nap if needed at any given time and we loved the fact that the bedroom was able to be dark at anytime of the day. We were able to walk just about anywhere we wanted pretty much and if we had to drive it was only minutes away. Everything is close by including the Wal-Mart to get needed things, zoo, activity parks, shopping, and tons of delicious places to eat. Great location all around. The walk to the beach took just a couple of minutes and was never a problem to run back to the condo since it was so close. The owners to top it all off were beyond helpful and kind, anytime I had a question I would email and less than an hour later I had a response! Couldn't have dealt with better people!!!! I highly, HIGHLY recommend this location and using these owners!!!! (and I tend to be hard to please). Thanks again, Randy and Lisa for sharing your place with me and my family! We will be coming back!
WOW! Where do I even begin! Mr. Randy was AWESOME to work with! Everything in the condo looked exactly the same as the pictures! Walking in the door the clean smell of the condo hits you! I knew from that first time I walked in we made he right decision! Everything you could possibly need is in the condo. The beds were very comfortable! The condo is right in the center of everything and its very convinent! The crosswalk from the condo to the beach makes it very easy to cross!! LULUS was by far our favorite place. There is another place called FLIPPERS that the guy from Dolphins Downunder Tour told us about, that not many people know about and they had AMAZING food! We were not disappointed with anything we experienced on our vacation! Thanks Again Mr. Randy and we will most definately be back! It was a pleasuring working with you! :)
The condo was immaculate, just as it was described. Great location with easy accessto the beach. Great food and fun at Lambert's restaurant in Foley. We enjoyed the Gulf Shores zoo, compact and plenty to see. Went to Fort Morgan for a sunset, a nice ride just 22 miles away. Nice drive along the ocean on 180 and 182. Nice walks along the beach collecting shells. Very nice area, would visit again
This was my family's third visit down to the area and once again we had an amazing time. The condo is also clean and has always matched the pictures and description. The owner's are always very responsive and have taken an active role in making sure our vacation is a great one!!! There is plenty to do to keep every member of the family entertained when you have had just a little too much beach time :) We found a great mini golf course and an amazing seafood restaurant. We had a great dinner at Lulu's and DeSoto's kitchen. Fresh seafood is just a little hard to come by in Colorado. My son also had a blast fishing in both the water and on the Gulf Shores Park Pier. I know that they say third time is a charm, but I am already scanning the calendar to plan our next trip down and have referred the owners to some family friends. Keep up the amazing work and we will see you in 2013. I can't stress enough the friendly service and personal attention that the owners provide. You can tell they take great pride in their reputation and the reputation of the area. Thanks again !!!
This condo was a delight. It was scrupulously clean, right across the street from the beach, and a super price. Our family enjoyed hanging out here for a week and would definitely choose to rent from these folks again in the future. The owners were thorough with communicating everything to us from the rental process all the way through to where the best restaurants and activities were located in Gulf Shores. They were truly pleasant to work with, promptly answered any emails and questions we had, and clearly take alot of pride in their condo. They have taken steps to keep the condo not only well-maintained but also fresh with its decor. So many condos have out-of-date drapes and bedspreads and pictures on the walls, but this one was current and pleasing to the eye. A tip for anyone planning to head to Gulf Shores: stay in this lovely condo, then plan to visit the zoo very close by (incredible for such a tiny town!) as well as Alligator Alley in nearby Summerville (tons of fun and interesting!), Fort Morgan (perfect for history buffs), the aviation museum at the Pensacola naval base, and take in some miniature golf, go-karts, and lazer tag in both Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Our kids (ages 15 and 17) loved all this, and yours will, too.
My husband and I along with our two children, ages 8 & 6, stayed at this wonderful condo. Everything that was listed along with the pictures were exactly as stated on the website. Randy was easy to work with on our accomodations and answered our questions very promptly. The condo was beautiful inside and it was properly maintained and the cleanest place we had ever stayed. We had ample room for the four of us and the location of the condo was perfect. It was nice to have a covered place to park and then only take a flight of stairs up to the condo. We will definitely recommend this unit and hope to return in the near future. We enjoyed eating at the Shrimp Basket which is very close by and also eating at King Neptune's and Doc's Seafood. You will not regret renting this condo for your Gulf Shores vacation.
This was our first time renting Randy & Lisa's condo. We decided to come to Gulf Shores to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness, the convenience to the beach (right across the street w/ the push of a button!), local restaurants and shops, and being within walking distance to some pretty cool places. The Shrimp Basket was our favorite place to eat and the Hangout is pretty fun, too (don't bother wasting money at the Oyster House-terrible!). The condo was perfect for our needs for the week (saving some money by preparing two meals a day). Randy was wonderful to work with and provided helpful information about Gulf Shores. Everything was just as promised. We would DEFINITELY stay here again!
My wife and I rented this condo for our first long vacation without our son in 3 years. It was an amazing value! Very clean, nice furniture and nicely decorated. It was a mere 2 minute walk to the beach and about a 10 minute walk to The Hangout. The owners were excellent in responding to our questions and providing suggestions. We will definitely be going to Gulf Shores again and will be hoping we can rent from the Moris family again!!! Some of the places we enjoyed were: (1) The Original Oyster House (Gulf Shores) - very good seafood/oysters, go during lunch to beat the crowd and you MUST get the peanut butter pie for dessert. (2) The Hangout (Gulf Shores) - we watched the NBA finals here and ate dinner. Great place for kids too. Always have live music. (3) The Florabama (Alabama/Florida state line) - a bit of a drive but well worth it. Very cool place to get a drink and relax. Live music as well. (4) Franco's (Orange Beach) - we were in the mood for pizza so we went here. It was very good. (5) Cobalt (Orange Beach) - very nice restaurant. The best food we had during our trip. It was a bit pricey (around $20 - $30 a plate) but it was a great place to have a romantic dinner for our last night of vacation. EVERYTHING we had there was excellent and we are food snobs. I highly recommend it. Long story short: we loved the condo, loved Gulf Shores and thoroughly enjoyed working with the Moris family!!!!
This was the first trip to Gulf Shores for my wife and me. The condo was great and just as described by Randy and Lisa (clean and comfortable providing easy access to the beach with the pedestrian friendly street crossing just outside the building). They made renting easy and added a few surprises we didn't know about before arriving (beware the shower curtain). We had our own beach umbrella and purchased folding beach chairs at the surf shop next door which saved dollars verses renting lounges. Other than the beach our favorite activities were a "Dolphin Cruise with the Cold Mil Fleet" and touring Fort Morgan (great for Civil War info). We had great meals at Desoto's, Lambert's Cafe, The Origional Oyster House and Papa Rocca's Pizza. Shopping at Tanger Outlet Mall was good since I came away with more than my wife did. If we get an opportunity to vacation in Gulf Shores again I have no doubt that this is where we will try to stay. Thanks Randy and Lisa.
Our guest and I had an ongoing joke regarding our shower curtain being a leopard spot pattern. So, if leopard spots frighten you we leave a nightlight on at night in there :-) We appreciated them coming all the way from the Kansas City area.
My family and I recently stayed at randy and lisa's condo in gulf shores, al. The condo was just as described. It was extremely clean and had everything we needed! The owner's made it so easy to find where things were and they were very helpful during our process of renting! There were so many attractions and fun things to do. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay at this condo. I hope to be going back soon myself!
We rented this condo for a graduation trip for my daughter. Four people stayed in this condo very comfortably. The furnishings were as described and very clean. It was a very easy walk across the street with the cross walk being right beside the complex. Enjoyed talking with Randy about this unit and would definitely rent again. We loved eating at Lulu's and Doc's. Papa Roccos pizza was awesome too since we had one that did not like seafood.
We stayed in this condo 5/5/12-5/12/12. It is exactly as described and the owners couldnt be easier to work with. This was our 1st trip to Gulf Shores and we had a fantastic time!!! It is in the best location to all the great restaurants and easily walk across the street to the beach. We recommend the Hang Out, Lu Lu's, the Shrimp Basket and especially Lamberts. These places are not to be missed. Sea and Suds directly across the street was great. Awesome deck to sit and look at the ocean. It was so nice coming back every night to this condo. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Frankly, the bed is more comfortable than ours at home and we especially loved the high end sheets and bedding. I strongly recommend staying here. We ourselves would not consider staying anywhere else after having stayed here. Already planning our next visit!!!!
My wife, three daughters and I had an amazing week in Gulf Shores. The condo was beautiful and just across the street from the beach. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room for 5 people. The balcony was a bonus because it gave a place for stuff to dry out and keep the sand outside. The beach was clean, uncrowded and the water was beautiful. We went to the beach everyday. We forgot a few items, but there was a surf shop right next door that had very reasonable prices. Our kids also loved the Gulf Shores Zoo and the Pirate Adventure Mini-Golf. We would also recommend walking across the street to eat at Sea and Suds. Another great place to dine was LuLu's. It was about a 5 minute drive and was perfect for a family with kids. The food was great, and they had a beach for the kids to play on while we waited for our food. We also went on a Dolphin Cruise out of Orange Beach. We saw about 10 dolphins playing in the water for 90 minutes. My daughters loved it. I would highly recommend this condo and Gulf Shores in general to anyone. Our condo's owners were extremely helpful before and during the trip. They answered all of our questions and grave us great tips on what to do while in Gulf Shores. It was our first time in the area and we will be back!
We enjoyed our stay at Gentle Winds very much. It was tastefully decorated and very clean and spotless. The pictures were accurate that you see on the internet. The kitchen is well equipped. Randy and Lisa are very accomodating and very helpful. If you need to reach them they get back to you right away. Gentle Winds is located in a very good spot. You can walk to most of the restaurants that are just a few blocks away. The beach is also right there for you to enjoy looking at the sunsets etc. Our favorite restaurants were the Oyster House, Rocco's, Reds, Shrimp Basket and Longhorn Steakhouse which is in Foley about 20 minutes away. We definitely would recommend Gentle Winds to our family and friends.
Unbelievably fine couple. We don't get to meet our guests very often but with them staying a month we got to meet them. They even did some repair or modification work for us voluntarily in the condo and we appreciated that so much. When they were leaving they hugged us and we felt like we had made some wonderful friends.
Randy and Lisa provide a very welcoming, comfortable vacation home. Everything was spotless and well-maintained. The week of October 22-29 is a very good week to spend in Gulf Shores as there are very few vacationers. Restaurants that we recommend are : Steamers, Oyster House and Bubba's. Thanks again to Randy and Lisa for the nice accomodations.
We had a wonderful anniversary trip to Gulf Shores Oct 16-22, 2011. This condo was nicely furnished, clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. The bed was comfortable and the sheets, towels, etc., were very nice also. Everything is clean and the kitchen has all the items needed to prepare a meal. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance and many, many more a short drive away. Our favorite is Mikey's. The walk to the beach takes maybe 5 minutes. There is a traffic light at the condo that allows easy crossing of the street, but the traffic is not a problem anyway. The beach access is paved and well lighted at night. The owner was quick to respond and gave us all info needed to contact him if needed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this condo rental.
Our condo is directly across the street from the beach and we have timed it at 3 minutes from the front door to standing on the beach.
I was a little worried that the walk to the beach would be a hassle but it wasn't bad at all, even carrying beach chairs, bags, an umbrella, and a 10 month old, it was super easy! The condo was very clean and well-decorated, and they had everything you would need to be comfortable. The beds were really comfy too. They are so helpful and nice, and respond quickly if you have a question. Great people to rent from!
We are located directly across the street from the beach. We even have a traffic light right there to walk across normally.
For our first trip to Gulf Shores we wanted a clean, nice, inexpensive condo close to the beach, the fishing pier, and plenty of seafood restaurants..we found it in this condo. From my first contact with Randy to the day we got home Randy was always extremely nice, friendly, and quick with information. My husband's main goal was to fish and eat seafood, Randy was able to tell us how close the pier was and give us great insight on some of the many seafood restaurants in the area. We loved it!!! The only bad thing...and it was due to the season, was that some of the souvenir stores were closed...but there is one right beside the condo that was open part of the time and we were able to get some thngs there. We love the area and the condo..if all goes well we'll be back next fall.
Great place to stay, very clean and comfortable. The location was amazing, a short walk right across to the beach without being right in the middle of everything. Its perfect for a small family or just a couples getaway. The price was great and the owners where really nice. Everything went smoothly and our vacation was lots of fun. We will absolutely be coming back for another stay.
My wife and I stayed at the Gentle Winds for about a week, and we were very satisfied with our stay. The property was spotless and very well maintained. It had a great location; directly across the street from the beach and about 5 -10 minutes from all the local restaurants (can't go wrong with the Original Oyster House). Randy was extremely helpful; he was very easy to contact if needed and made sure we were taken care of, giving us directions to the local stores and attractions. He also suggested visiting the visitor's center and picking up some coupons, which was a great idea. Overall, we would recommend this condo to anyone on a budget that wants good, clean, quality accomodations. Great vacation!
We have 6 or 7 restaurants that can be walked to within minutes. Many of the local flavor restaurants only take a couple of minutes by car to get to. Everything in Gulf Shores is close by.
I had the pleasure of visiting Gulf Shores and had a great experience! The condo sits across from sea n suds restaurant on East Beach blvd and the beach is in walking distance. I loved that our group was able to walk to most places especially the nights we decided to go out. The condo was extremely clean and well stocked! The furniture and decor was very comfortable, contemporary, and stylish. The things I disliked about our condo was that the bedroom had both beds in it, was the first room when you enter the condo, and had no door. It had a studio feel to it. The balcony faces north so you can't see the ocean however, there are two large high rise condo buildings across the street that would block the view regardless. My group still enjoyed the condo though! The owner was extremely helpful with any questions I had in booking the condo and prior to our arrival, we were supplied with a very useful information packet. He makes himself available and is very prompt with any replies or information requests. I appreciate that he handled everything very professionally while still ensuring a personal feel was maintained. The price of our stay was reasonable and fair. My group is from the Saint Louis area and the average expenses (gas, groceries, etc.) were average. I highly recommend the Oyster House, Cosmos, and Cafe Graze to eat. Our favorite place to go out to at night was the Pink Pony and The Hangout. Please do yourself a favor and take a walk on the beach on a clear night however, don't forget a flashlight. Seeing a jellyfish in the water or on the beach is a likely occurrence so beware. Overall, I truly enjoyed my experience and I believe my group did as well. I would recommend this condo to any family or to a group of friends. Groups of couples may want to evaluate the sleeping situation and decide what's best for them. In our situation, it didn't affect us much and we would definintely rent from the owners again.
We appreciate this family for coming. A great review from her. Our condo is 1BR/1BA. She mentioned a studio feel but our bedroom has a 10' long hallway between it and the living room allowing privacy. Having 2 beds in the bedroom along with a sleeper sofa has allowed families of 4-6 to find an affordable condo for their vacation.
Our family stayed for a week and we absolutely loved it!! It is VERY clean, nicely decorated & kitchen is eqquipped with everything you would need to cook with. The beach is only a 2 minute walk across the street and stores are only 5 minutes away. Randy & Lisa are absolutely wonderful and are willing to help in any way they can. I would recommend this condo to anyone!!
We are directly across the street from the beach and have a traffic light right next to our complex to walk safely across. No rushing or racing in front of traffic! We try to furnish and outfit our condo so that you don't have to bring your whole house when you come down.
Good value, good location. I rented condo B3 for 3 months this winter and it was a relaxing and hassle free experience. Randy and Lisa take great care of their property and you will not find more accommodating or responsive people. Very professional and warm individuals who make sure you are 100% "at home". Kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and appliances. Cross walk with a light is in front of the building so you are steps away from the beach. Laundry room is at the parking level. I would recommend renting from Randy and Lisa, and would not hesitate to return to this condo again!
