The condo is very cozy, quiet, and comfortable. The condo helped make for a wonderful vacation, as it's affordable and in a prime location. Literally across the street from the beach, it's almost like you have your own personal walkway there. It's walking distance from so many neat places, for example The Hangout. Also walking distance from so many other restaurants and stores such as Surf Style and Dollar General. When we did drive, it's because we were being lazy and didn't want to walk :) Can't express enough how much we enjoyed our stay! Randy is great with communication and letting you know all procedures of the rental. Hopefully I'll get to come back in the future!
This condo was perfect for a girls getaway. It was clean, comfortable and quiet. We had a great time exploring the area but mostly being on the beach. Beach was clean and very easily accessible. Plenty of places to visit nearby! Randy was great to work with and got us the information and deposit to us quickly. I will definitely look into returning when planning for the next getaway!
This was our (my boyfriend and I) second year to stay in this little condo! We absolutely love it here. It is so neat, well furnish and decorated so cute. It is also convenient to everything you need. Being able to park underneath is also great. And the access to the beach is perfect! Randy and Lisa are easy to work with and makes the process so easy. We discovered new restaurants - thanks to the list that was in the condo. A couple were out where we probably would never have discovered them if we hadn't been tipped off! There are so many great places to eat around here! We look forward to coming back here next August. It is the perfect getaway!
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The condo was very clean and comfortable. Great location. Quiet. The beach was wonderful and just across the street. Randy was so very easy to work with and was full of information. I highly recommend staying here! The only problem I had was that I did NOT want to leave :) I can't wait to come back.
We stayed at Randy's place in July 2016. From the beginning, Randy made it very easy to book. He was very easy to contact, quick to respond, informative, and helpful. All of my questions were answered and I felt very secure from the beginning that I had chosen the right place for my family to stay while in Gulf Shores. When we arrived, everything was validated--yes, we had chosen the right place! The condo is adorable--very clean, cute, fully stocked with anything you might need for a stay. Seriously, anything you might possibly need is there; Randy has gone above and beyond in stocking the condo. The location, too, is just perfect--a very short walk across the street to the beach. We spent a few nights simply sitting on the deck and watching the street below us. Very good location and easy to access. Furniture is comfy. I was worried that the condo wouldn't get dark enough because it is so close to everything, but again, Randy thought ahead and there are room darkening blinds for night and I slept perfectly. We definitely plan to book this same condo again the next time we are in Gulf Shores.
My daughter, grandson and I have enjoyed the hospitality of Lisa and Randy for 3 years now! We found the condo online and contacted them and reserved our vacation. We had stayed in what I call the white palaces...all white condos that make you afraid of spills or kids with any of the decor or furniture, and felt like we were on guard 24/7. Not what we wanted on vacation! Our condo with Randy was like staying in a friends' home. We love how furnished the kitchen is because we like to cook in some, and the crockpot is heaven to walk into a smell of dinner cooking after a fun filled day on the beach! The beds are comfy, the bathroom HUGE! Easy to get to, CLEAN, great location to almost anything you would like to do, perfect homey space and owners who care about your comfort and satisfaction! We have become friends with Randy and Lisa through our conversations about our stay at their place. Great people! We ate at Lulu's, Cactus Cantina, Lambert's, the Pink Pony, Sea and Suds. All highly recommended!
Our stay was perfect. The owner, Randy is very easy to work with. The condo has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Bring your swimsuit and some groceries and you are set for the week. The condo is directly across the street and even has a slice of an ocean view. The crosswalk was a lifesaver. It is close to everything in Gulf Shores with some things within walking distance. Condo was very clean and it was comforting to know if anything went wrong that the owners were not far away to help. We would stay here again.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Morris condo. We were looking for an affordable condo to sleep our family of four as close to the beach as possible within our budget. Communication with Randy was effortless & he thought of everything! The condo is clean, well stocked, beds comfortable, & proximity to the beach great. I was thrilled to find corn cob holders in the drawer. You can even see a slice of the beach from the balcony. We spent every day on the beach. We also went mini golfing at a little place right on the highway and had a great time. We went to The Pier & it was so inexpensive & neat! You could see fish & sharks swimming in the water. We spent one morning @ Fort Morgan with its worth the drive & very affordable. Our favorite restaurant was Tacky Jacks & Bahama Bobs. We will definately be back to Gulf Shores for more family fun. Our kids are 10 & 13, they had a blast.
Cozy space for a family of four. We arrived and everything was as Randy said it would be. He was great in giving tips for the area and in keeping in contact to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. The beds were comfy and the kitchen was easy to manage. He was great at labeling where everything was in the kitchen and how to keep the place in order. It was also very family friendly - a loud group in the complex was reported and I was contacted to make sure everything was okay. There was even a crockpot and a blender! Make sure to bring your own laundry detergent if you plan to do laundry. Enjoy your stay and thank you Randy for a wonderful time in Gulf Shores!
I stayed here for two months, and have nothing but great things to say. The condo is very clean and well equipped with everything you might need while at the beach. It is conveniently located near great restaurants and shops, many of which are in walking distance. The condo is directly across the street from the beach with easy beach access just a few steps away. The owners are very attentive, and work diligently to solve any problems that might arise during your stay. The condo has recently been renovated with new beach themed decor and colors creating a nice and relaxing beach feel from the moment you arrive. When not on the beach, the balcony is a great place to sit and watch the sunset. I will definitely be returning to this condo in the future, and I assure you that you will enjoy your stay at Gentle Winds.
We like Randy's place. We have stayed there twice and will go again. It is very very clean. You have all the necessary supplies. We cooked some and all the kitchen stuff you need is there. We loved eating breakfast at the Waffle House next door. You aren't on the beach but a street light is out front. You cross the street and walk a few steps and you are on the beach. It's convenient to everything. The air condition is cool and we liked the ceiling fans in the bedroom and living room. Sea and Suds is a fun place to get hamburger and fries and it's a short walk from the beach. We liked sitting outside so we could watch all our beach stuff. Great place to stay !!!
My husband and I stayed in the condo for a week and we were very pleased with our experience. The condo was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our family or friends. We really appreciated the condo having designated parking. Randy answered all our inquires very promptly and booking was a breeze. The beach is directly across the street and easily accessible. We enjoyed the beach, but, we also enjoyed sitting on the balcony just relaxing. Of course we tried out several restaurants and one of our favorites was LuLu's. We did enjoy Lamberts also!!!! It's a different atmosphere, but, nice. The condo is within walking distance of many shops and restaurants so if you don't want to drive, it isn't necessary. We enjoyed the Sea 'n Suds restaurant also. We enjoyed all the shops, but especially liked "The Old Time Pottery Barn". So much to see and enjoy. This condo is very affordable and is everything we needed to have a fun filled week in Gulf Shores. Wish we could have stayed longer.
This was my first trip to Gulf Shores although my boyfriend has been here several times. It is a perfect location - close to the beach, lots of restaurants and shopping. The condo was ideal - it was equipped with everything you need, it was very clean and well furnished. Our favorite places to eat were Mikee's & The Shrimp Basket (walking distance). The HangOut is right down the street for live music. The drive over to LuLu's was short and definitely worth it. We also found a nice golf course to hit the driving range a couple of mornings. The beach is beautiful - sugar white sand and very clean. We rented our chairs/umbrella and they were set up for us every morning! We are already planning on returning next spring/early summer and staying in this same unit! Randy was so easy to deal with, and the whole process was seamless. I would recommend condo to anyone!! Can't wait to come back!
My family of 4, plus mom, had the best time in Gulf Shores during the Little League Series. The location was perfect.We were in close proximity to all the sports complexes,as well as, lots of fun stuff to do after games. My boys loved being so close to the beach. They enjoyed walking to the Hangout in the evenings, and crab hunting at the beach at night.The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. Randy was very personable and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend this condo.I hope to stay here next June during the World Series......... We had the Best time ever,can't wait for next year!!!!!!
It was a great stay in gulf shores .This was our second time using one of Randy and Lisa's condos. Again this time it was clean, neat, and packed with all the things necessary to cook. Didn't do a whole lot of that since there are plenty of places to eat. Gulf Island Grill and Tacky Jacks we're great. Also close to Foley for the outlet malls. And Pink Pony turned out to be quite the happening place at night. Looking forward to next time.
Each year my cousin and I meet in Gulf Shores for a visit and have stayed at Gentle Winds East the last 4 times. It is our favorite condo of all that we have visited. It's perfect for the 2 of us. The beds are comfortable It is clean, well equipped and furnished to feel like home. It has everything you need and you feel right at home. The location is an easy walk to the beach and a quick drive to restaurants, shopping and activities. Our favorite restaurants are DeSoto's, Wintzell's, Lulu's, and Sea and Suds. Of course, we make several trips to the Outlet Mall and other shopping spots. We particularly like the owners they are so easy to work with. They communicate quickly. make sure the condo is spotless, has everything it needs and try to accommodate all their guests. We wouldn't stay anywhere else.
This condo was amazing! Everything we needed for our stay was provided; exceptionally clean rooms and balcony as well. The overall experience of renting this condo was so easy, and we were more than pleased with how the owners answer all questions soon as they're contacted! My family WILL be renting again in the future! Gulf Shores was pretty comparable to paradise!!! Beautiful beaches, yummy restaurants (all with superb staff), and everyone we chatted with wherever we went was so nice! We loved how we could take day drives and explore the area; in no time we would be in Florida! Definitely pleased and we feel homesick to be there after arriving home from vacation.
For the past 3 years in a row we have stayed in this condo for our beach vacation. Gulf Shores sells itself with a wonderful beach, super restaurants, and friendly locals. This condo is so convenient across the street from the beach and walking distance to several restaurants and shops. I love the fact that the complex is small and that you park your car right under the condo and it is covered. The condo is always clean and the two beds are good quality and very comfortable which is so important to us. Everything you might need is supplied plus more. Randy makes the rental process so easy and is an attentive landlord who is always available with a call or email. I would never think of staying anyplace else when we come each year to Gulf Shores in April. We are now considering coming every 6 months and know where we will be staying...right here. Thanks for the wonderful condo and memorable visits. Randy, you are the best and a hoot to top it off!
We had a great time. This is the 3rd time we have been to Gulf Shores but, the only time it was just my husband and I. We loved the condo even though it was only 2 of us it could have easily accommodated 6. It was close to beach and shops. The owners were easy to work with had no trouble at all. We finally made it to the Shrimp Basket which was very good. I know we will be making another trip and if possible will stay in the exact condo.
Had an awesome time. This was our first time ever in Gulf Shores. We absolutely loved it. This Condo had everything we needed. We were a family of 6 and the Condo accommodated us all comfortably. The condo is conveniently located near the beach and great restaurants. A short 2 minute walk. The condo owners we very pleasant to work with as well. Looking forward to our next year trip.
My boys and I have rented from Randy numerous times, so when our oldest was scheduled for a baseball tournament in Gulf Shores, we knew who to call! Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your condo. As always, your condo was immaculate and perfect for our family. We have stayed at all 3 units owned by Randy in Gentle Winds and have yet to be disappointed. We will definitely be back!
Myself and my two girlfriends stayed in this condo again for spring break for the second year in a row. It's still so perfect and adorable. We love the bathroom because there is enough room for all of our makeup, which is A LOT. The beds are comfy and there's enough room for all of our clothes which again, is A LOT. The kitchen is very well stocked and the little living room area is really nice, although we didn't use it much because we were always at the beach! The beach is a very short walk across the street, a very convenient location. Our mornings were spent sitting on the balcony people watching since it's right on the main strip of gulf shores. We love this condo and plan on spending many, many more vacations here in Gulf Shores.
We had a great time in Gulf Shores and the townhome was just as advertised. Everything was in working order and the townhome was clean. You can tell the owners take pride in their rentals. The walk to the beach was very quick and easy. You pull your car up under the house (as long as it is not tall) which keeps it much cooler when you get in it to go places which I loved. There are a number of restaurants that are close by I would recommend, Desoto's Kitchen, Mikee's, The Shrimp Basket, Doc's, Lulu's. There were many more that we wanted to try but we weren't able to make them all. This is a good reason to have to come again. Thanks so much for such a clean, well furnished, reasonably priced townhome for us to rent and enjoy.
This was our first experience on VRBO.com and it could not of been any better (A++++). Randy Moris #130049 answered every question we had in a very very timely manner. The condo was spotless, very well-maintained and all appliances worked. The condo inside was very quaint, cozy, colorful and perfect for our family of four. The pictures online are very representative of the condo and all the amenities are there for you. Its live-in ready!! Just a reminder.........make sure you bring a roll of quarters for the laundry machines ($1.00-1.50 for washer & $1.00 for dryer) and about (3) extra 13 gallon trash bags!! The location of the condo is an (A+++), Waffle House is next door on one side and Surf Style is on other side, there is a Wal-Mart right around the corner on Rt.59 and only a 3 minute walk to The Hideout. This is a must do restaurant. It has a live band, outdoor activities for the kids, shopping and the food is an A+++. Other restaurants I recommend is The Original Oyster House (OH MY THE FOOD) which is literally right around the corner on Rt.59, Bubba's Lighthouse which is a short drive East to Orange Beach (7 miles), Shrimp Basket (great food + cheap) on Rt. 59 and right by The Original Oyster House, LuLu's (went there 2X) which is right over the bridge going N on Rt.59 and is a must for the family. Also we recommend these attractions......The Track which is located just N on Rt.59 (Lots to do), Adventure Island just East 7 minutes to (Orange Beach), Parasailing, Wave Runners, Dolphin Cruises and the best part is the BEACH with its white sand, looking for sand dollars, starfish, shells and all types of aquatic life. Make sure you bring a flashlight or Iphone to look for crabs by the water at night. I would recommend this condo to everyone because of its PERFECT location (A+++) to all the restaurants, beach (just a few minute SAFE walk), shopping, adventure & outdoor activities. I would like to personally thank Randy Moris for his wonderful condo and making this back to school summer get-a-way one my family will always remember. *IF YOU DO NOT RENT THIS CONDO FOR YOUR GULF SHORES STAY YOU ARE MISSING OUT*
Randy and Lisa’s condo had plenty of room for our family of 5. The space was clean, functional and quiet … the nonsmoking room was a huge plus for us. The gulf view from the porch was an unexpected surprise. The walk to the beach was a shorter distance than more expensive places we have stayed at in Destin. Beach access was basically a walk across the street. Randy and Lisa were courteous, responsive and helpful from planning through our stay. We hope to return to this spot in the future and would recommend this location to anyone planning a beach vacation. We had a wonderful time!
My three best friends and I stayed at the condo for a girl's getaway/graduation trip. The condo was absolutely perfect! Randy and Lisa were very nice, easy, and quick at responding to emails. The condo itself was beautiful; very clean, fully stocked with kitchen utensils, a beach themed bathroom, and a deck to watch the sun rise and set with a view of the ocean. Speaking of which, the ocean with it's white beaches, was right across the street where we spent most of our time! We also went to Alligator Alley (which was a blast!) and went to restaurants that were in easy walking distance of the condo! We will hopefully be returning soon!
We planned our getaway 3 months before we went and wore out the pictures and emails we got dreaming of our vacation. dreams come true...it was amazing! the kitchen is top notch and stocked with everything you would need..corkscrew, corn on the cob holders...loved the space. slept like a bay...never touched the thermostat. planning next year to stay here! loved it!
Once again I am beyond pleased with my stay here. The owners are beyond helpful. Very friendly people that will go out of their way to help you or give tips on where to go. I highly recommend this place. Very clean, perfect little walk to the beach, a patio to sit out on and see the ocean. I know with out a doubt we will be coming back once again and using the same people. No questions asked. Now because of the condos "sea-creatures" I am having to redo my sons bedroom. HE LOVED IT. Thank you, Randy once again for all your help and sharing your beautiful condo with me and my family.
Randy and Lisa have a quaint and comfortable condo they rented to us for Hangout Festival 2014 and our stay was quite pleasant. The condo was clean and comfy. All appliances and air worked. We had no issues with the condo at all and was pleasantly surprised at how dark the bedroom was in the morning. We were able to sleep in very well. The condo is conveniently located from the festival and lots of restaurants. Beach access was super easy and just right across the street. The owner, Randy, was very prompt at responding to my emails and very pleasant to work with through our whole stay. I would highly recommend staying at any of their condos.
This condo is great! It's perfect for a small family or for two people. My husband and I had a fantastic time! Gentle Winds was very clean and we had everything we needed. The neighbors were very friendly also. It's just a short walk to the beach or to go eat. Do consider eating at LuLu's. It's a short drive and a fun place to go. Everything was excellent from the booking process, payment and rental agreement. Randy and family I thank you. We will go back!
Myself and three of my girl friends stayed here for spring break of this year and it was amazing! Although the condo was a little small, it was totally perfect. The view from the balcony was perfect for people watching, it was literally right across the street from the beach and the beach access, and it was right next door to a waffle house! The kitchen was fully stocked and there were plenty of pots, silverware, and dishes. The bathroom was adorable and very spacious. Overall, this has been one of my favorite condos I've ever stayed at and I've been renting condos with my family for almost 20 years. Definitely want to come back again and again! Loved it!!!
We stayed in this condo in March 2014 and had a great experience. The owners were wonderful to deal with. The condo was in a GREAT location and everything was extremely clean which is very important to us. The beach was just across the street and we could see the water from the condo. The condo has been maintained well and is nicely decorated and well stocked. We would definitely stay here again!
I have never considered myself a beach person, I usually prefer going to the mountains for a vacation. However, the week we recently spent at Gentle Winds condo in Gulf Shores changed my mind. I didn't want to go home. Ever. Everything was excellent, from the ease of making reservations, the payment process and rental agreement, to the spotless condition of the condo when we arrived. The beach was just across the road and it took about 5 minutes to be at the waters edge. Restaurants and attractions were very close in proximity, many of which can be walked to. We are already anticipating our return at some point next year! We had a great time and enjoyed staying here.
This condo is quite beautiful and the pictures do not do the property justice!! My boyfriend and I stayed at this property for a week and we had a fantastic time! The beach is right across the street and we were within walking distance of Hooters, Sea and Suds and the Hangout!! The interior of the condo was very clean, we had no problem feeling very much at home. The bathroom is bigger than I originally thought it would be and it is decorated beautifully with fish and carries the beach theme throughout! Plenty of dishes, glasses, cooking utensils, pots and pans - I think there is more in the condo than in my house!! We would have no problem going back to this condo to rent it again. The owners are very friendly and easy with which to work!! Terriffic experience!
Only great things to say about this condo. Very clean, well decorated, lots of room and very convenient. The condo is decorated very tastefully and has almost anything you will need for your vacation. Randy is a pleasure to work with and went above what he had to do to make sure we were taken care of. This is so close to the beach and our favorite eating place ( Lulu's). Hope to visit again soon!!!!
We loved the condo. It was a great place to stay with our young boys for their first time to the beach. It was close to the beach and extremely easy to cross the street with the light right outside our condo. It had everything for our stay and the little extras you don't think about. It even had an eyeglass repair kit to tighten my screw to keep my glasses usable. Also, just down the street was the Gulf Shores state park. Excellent place to ride bikes and walk. We brought our own and chained them to the support pillars in our parking space. We will definitely go back and use this condo if possible. The owners were great to work with and answered all our questions before our arrival. I have already recommended this condo to my family and friends that travel.
This was the perfect place for our family of four.The condo was exceptionally clean and conveniently located in walking distance to the beach. The decorations amenities made it feel like home. We did visit a few restaurant, we love Lamberts and LuLu's especially the kiddos. Everything went great which made for a very relaxing get away. Randy and Lisa are the best, easy to work with very helpful and always returns calls and or emails in a timely matter. We.loved our trip and plan on returning next year.
This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at Randy & Lisa's Condo in Gulf Shores, Love it, everything is kept clean, they are very caring people, condo is great. Process of setting up the stay was very easy. Did it by email. You can also call if you have any questions. We stayed for 2 weeks this time went very smoothly. Excellant location across from the beach, easy to get to restaurants, shopping, etc. Everywhere we ate it was excellant,A couple of our favorite restaurants in Gulf Shores is the Gulf Island Grill and Desoto's Seafood. Another excellant one along with having entertainment is LuLu's. They also have a lot to do for the kids, if you are coming down with children. Plenty of golf in the area, and of course great beaches. We would highly recommend their condo's. And of course we plan on coming back. Bob & Tina
My husband & I have visited Gulf shores, Ala for many years. This condo far exceeded its description. As the owners of a commercial cleaning service for 23 years it was super clean. It is perfect for a couple, but will accommodate 4 comfortably. The décor is sooooo beachy. Comfortable beds, great kitchen and entertainment(nice large flatscreen tvs and internet service). It is across the street from the beach, however, the walk is fine;Very short with its own walkway. Within walking distance to resturants as well as shops. We LOVED it so much that we reserved it for a week in the summer within a day after arriving. The condo stays booked and we can see why. Randy, the owner, is so accomiadating and overseas the condo himself with his wife. The price is half of what the high-rise condos rent for. In our many years of travel, this is the best place we have ever stayed.
My husband and I try to spend a week at the beach every 6 months just to get away from our hetic lives and recharge our batteries. Staying here in this condo was like being in our own home; it was equiped with everthing we could possibly need and was so comfortable. Being able to just walk across the street to the beach or to a restaurant nearby was wonderful. There is a balcony to sit on and watch traffic go by or the beach across the street. I would sit in the morning with my cup of coffee and just enjoy the scenery. We loved having our car parked under the condo and so close. No security problems and we felt very safe. This is truly the way to go, no more motels for us. We will be back. Thanks Randy for making this such an easy process to rent your condo. Anyone considering renting this property, you won't be disappointed, and Randy Moris, the owner, is super to work with. We had a wonderful time!
Our 5 nite stay was wonderful! This condo is clean, very well organized, neat and in a great location! We walked to many of the places we love for shopping and out to dinner. We loved covered parking so our car was never hot when we did use it, and also didn't get wet the 1 day it rained. This condo had everything we needed, and a large bathroom. The kitchen was very organized and had everything you could need. The short walk across the street to the beach fit in with our walking plan and easy beach access. Free wifi, 2 TVs, comfortable furniture and did I mention GREAT location & affordable?!
My three friends and I stayed in this condo for our spring break in March. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and nice it was for such a great price! We originally wanted to stay on the beach but that was too expensive, but after arriving at the condo, we didn't care because it was literally right across the street from the beach! The condo is in a great location too, right by popular restaurants (like Sea n Suds and the Hangout) and shopping. We walked to many places throughout the week and rarely needed to use a car which was extremely convenient. This place would be great for a family vacation, or even a girls weekend getaway like we did! All in all this condo was fabulous!
The Condo was centrally located, easy to get into parking area. We were very pleased with the appearence and how clean the Condo was. It was the perfect size for the 2 of us. Our daughter and her family stayed close by and it was very convienent to get together with them. We enjoyed the beach, shopping at the Outlet Malls and ate way too much! Several of our favorite resturants were close by, such as Mikee's and the Original Oyster House. We highly reccomend Gentle Winds as a lovely place to stay.
The property was exactly as described. It is very convenient to the beach. It is directly across the street and right at a crosswalk light. There really aren’t a lot of those on the street so it is a huge plus. The place was fully equipped. Everything you would need in a kitchen including a crockpot. The owner Randy is very responsive. I was able to get a hold of him when we lost our keys at the beach. The area is great and we had an awesome time. I HIGHLY recommend the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.
Gentle Winds is a great place right across the street from the beach! It's in a great location. The advertised size and amenities are accurate. The kitchen is really stocked with utensils and cookware. Very clean as well. Very comfortable too. Our family of four was amazed and impressed upon entering the unit. You will not be disappointed. Also within walking distance of several restaurants and stores. It even has your own parking place under the building - no need to search for a place to park when coming or going. We would definately stay here again. We had a great time and enjoyed Gulf Shores! You will too!
The kids and I stayed at the condo for a week and we loved it. You are directly in front of a cross walk as soon as you hit the bottom floor, which is awesome so u don't have to walk three blocks to access the beach or dodge traffic. The condo was nice and clean when we arrived with initial ammenities so you don't have to waste your first day running to the store. The owners were incredible to deal with. They were always quick to respond with any question I had for them. It really was like dealing with a family member. We usually hit the beach early in the morning then came back to relax. Then we would go to waterville, putt putt, or parasailing, which I recommend. It really was not as scary as I thought...it was more peaceful, just the kids and I and the wind. Beautiful view from that high up. We would end our day with night walks on the beach watching the kids look for shells and hermit crabs. Overall the trip was great and staying where we stayed had a lot to do with that. When I go back to Gulf Shores I will be checking the availibility of this property first.
We really enjoyed our vacation at Gentle Winds East. Randy was very prompt in responding to any questions that I had and booking the condo went very smoothly. The condo itself is in a great location and is within walking distance to just about anything that you would need. This is the first time that we have not stayed directly on the beach and it was no problem. The beach was only a short walk across the street. There were 5 of us in the condo and we had plenty of room. The condo was very clean and just as described by the pictures There is a Waffle House right next door that has a great breakfast. We ate at the Shrimp Basket several times. I love the Gumbo and Garlic Parmesan Bread. We ate at Lambert's. Food was ok but we weren't impressed enough to ever go back. If you like the Blue Angels they have practices in Pensacola which is a short drive away. It's free to watch and you can find their schedule on the web. We will be planning another trip to Gulf Shores and hope to be able to stay at one of the Moris properties again.
We came down for the Hangout Music festival and had a great time staying in this condo. The beach is directly across the street and local restaurants are just within a 10 minute walk. The condo is very nice and had a lot of amenities like a nice TV, cookware and internet. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and watching people walk by or just watching the sunrise/sunset. Parking is great and other than one trip to the store we never moved our car. We met a few of the neighbors who were really nice and told us about a couple places to go that we might not have heard about otherwise. The owner Randy is an extremely nice guy that helped make sure everything was set in place and ready for our arrival. This was one of the best vacation rental experiences I've ever had.
We are a family of four who were looking a NICE, less expensive place to stay on vacation. It was right across the street from the beach and the balcony was facing the ocean, so it was nice to sit out at night and just relax facing the ocean. It was VERY clean inside the condo. You could tell the owners took pride in their little piece of gulf shores. It was located on a stretch of road that you could walk to several different eating places and there was a surf shop right next door. The photos do not do this great place justice. They have everything you would need for an enjoyable stay. The only I would have liked to have was a washer/dryer in the unit, instead of the pay laundry in the parking area. It was in walking distance of "The Hangout", right next door to a waffle house, right across the street from a couple other resturants. The other side of the condo had a surf/gift shop. It was a very short drive to the pier that you could go out on and fish or sight see. Walmart and several other store were really close and short driving distance. I can't say enough about this place. The owners were great to work with as well. Very timely with their communications with you. The owers are very nice to work with. Check their condo out!!!!
We enjoyed our week stay at Gentle Winds. The condo was clean, well furnished and accommodating. The decor was bright and inviting and I appreciated the roomy bathroom. The fact that the condo faces the street kept it from being as tranquil as it would have been if it were directly on the beach. However, the bedroom is in the back and the traffic noise did not disturb our sleep. It is a short walk across the street to the beach access, which has beautiful white sand and beach lounges available for rent w/umbrella if you don't want to bring your own. We enjoyed Pappa Rocco's Italian Restaurant, Cotton's, Lulu's, and the Scoops for ice cream. Lulu's was a big attraction with live music and play area for kids. The food portions were more than enough! We enjoyed being able to fix breakfast at the condo, snack for lunch and go out and enjoy dinner in the restaurants. We visited the Roma Beach Baptist Church (beautiful view of the gulf behind the pulpit!) Pensecola lighthouse on the Naval base in Florida, just a few miles away, Ft. Morgan, and we thoroughly enjoyed the Dolphin and Nature Cruise where we got to see dolphins playing and a rare treat to see two babies with their mamas! The guy sitting in front of us in the boat proposed to his girlfiend on bended knee on the return trip...perfect ending to a beautiful evening! We even took in a movie on our last night "The Lucky One" at the Cobb Pinnacle 14 Theatre, which was has elevated seating with very comfortable high-backed chairs. The only thing that would keep us from rating this as excellent is the fact that the view off the living room balcony is the street; however, the comfort and affordability would bring us back again. Randy was quick to respond to any questions we had. Very nice vacation and experience all around. This was our first trip to Gulf Shores, but it won't be our last!
Wow! We just came back from a weekend at Gulf Shores, and are we ever glad we found this place. Honestly, everything the reviews say is true. This is a very clean, well-supplied condominium that has a wonderful home-away-from-home feel. The big surprise for us was finding out just how close it is to the beach--you can actually see the ocean from the balcony as you look between the expensive condo buildings across the street! Also a great surprise was that parking (for two vehicles) was literally just 15 steps away from our door (far less than the miles those folks have to walk from parking in those expensive condos across the street). Don't get us wrong, this isn't a luxury property, just a wonderful, clean, home-away-from-home kind of place that won't break the bank and will leave you wanting to come back for more --we are!
This condo is perfect for a beach getaway! I went for a week with some friends and we had a great time. It is located in a nice, smaller complex directly across the street from a beach access which is nice. When we arrived, the place was spotless. It was so easy to walk anywhere we wanted including a variety of restaurants and shops. The condo was very comfortable and had every amenity we could have wanted. If you are looking for a place to relax or a great place for a girls getaway this condo is a great option. It was well worth what we paid for a week and was one of the most affordable options in the area that I could find. The owner was very responsive and helpful during the rental process. We found that our favorite restaurant was Sea'n'Suds located on the beach directly across the street. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone looking for a no-fuss beach vacation.
My family has had the opportunity to stay at dozens of condos and I can honestly say that Gulf Winds is the best as far as price, cleanliness, location (the beach is right across the street) and amenities. The kitchen is stocked with everything that you need, the beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is very spacious and up to date. We did go out to eat a few times at the Shrimp Basket, Lamberts where they throw the rolls, and the Hang Out. Randy was very detailed with instructions from start to finish. Everything went very smoothly and we didn’t need to call him during our stay, but I’m sure he would have been very accessible if needed. Loved it, loved it, loved it! “We will be back”.
This condo was perfect for my family of four, we had enough space and felt it was our home away from home. Every detail was clean and accomodating! Randy and Lisa are the perfect hosts' and responded immediately to any questions we had. You get personal service here, unlike many corporate owned condos. The condo is VERY well stocked and everything has been thought of. It wasn't lacking in anything that we could think of. It is across the street from the beach and was very conveniently located. Their is a nice beach shop next door, and everything else is a short drive away. The beach was beautiful and clean and the restaraunts were great! We ate at Lulu's and Lamberts, two of the famous hot spots. Pensacola is not too far away for extra sight seeing, and the Wharf at Orange Beach is a must see. Fort Morgan was very interesting for history buffs. There is a lot to do in this area, and you can't go wrong staying in this "hidden treasure" and it's perfect location! Thanks Randy and Lisa!
We were very pleases with our stay. The accomidations were very clean, close to all points of intrest. I lived in Gulf Shores several years ago so I did not do most of the typical tourist activities but spent time relaxing in a clean comfortable enviornment of the condo which had easy access to the beach to take our morning and evening walks. The unit was well furnished to cook your meals in the event you are trying to save a few dollars and is also colse to several good resturants, Doc's was a favorite of ours which is only about a 2 minute drive. I would recomend this unit to anyone wishing to stay here very easy and rapid contact information with the owner nice to work with.
I just returned from my second stay in your condo and I must say it was even better than last year! The number one reason I chose to stay here again is the cleanliness of the unit. Undoubtedly this is the cleanest condo I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in many! The new linens and furnishings really made my stay comfortable. I was once again so pleased with the ease of use of the kitchen. It is furnished with everything I needed and more. I found everything to be even better than the pictures depicted. The second reason I chose to return is the convenience of the condo. I love being in the heart of everything. It is only a short walk to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. Thirdly, the owner paid attention to every little detail. He answered any questions I had and made the process of renting pleasant while keeping the rental rate very reasonable. I recommend this condo to anyone looking for a clean, convenient place to stay at the beach. I rate it a 5+ and will be back!!!
My husband and I stayed here for few days in October 2011. The condo was very cozy, clean and very quiet. Very close to the local attractions such as the Gulf Shores Zoo, Lambert's - Home of the throwed rolls and Pensacola. We spent one day in Pensacola to see the Blue Angels Practice and that was well worth the free show and admission to the museum. I dealt directly with Mr. Randy was very easy and accomodating. We were also allowed to check in early on our arrival date which was very nice. I would highly reccommend this place for 2-4 people. Hope to do this again next year!
My family and I just finished our first vacation at Gentle Winds. It was nothing short of amazing. The condo was excellent in all ways. The location to everything could not be better. It was within walking distance of many great places to eat. The Sea-N-Suds is just across the street. The Hangout is GREAT for family fun and just about 2 blocks down the street. My kids LOVED The Hangout!! Lamberts restaurant is back down the hwy a few mins but the food is very good with lots of free pass around sides. We also ate at LULU's. Great food with lots of activities for everyone there. We also went on a dolphin cruise. It was breath taking its a must do on the list. Best of all the Gulf of Mexico is just about 50-100 yrds out your door. The owners are great. They are very helpful, honest, and are just plain good people. Will most definately be back to stay with them in the future if we don't move there first :)
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our first time renting a condo. Couldn't ask for a better deal than this. The condo was perfect for us. Spotless, convenient to everything, and fully stocked with everything we needed for the week, except food. Randy was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Right across the street from the beach and Sea-n-Suds (great food). Quick walk to The Hangout, Brusters Ice Cream, Waffle House and several other restaurants and surf shops. Very short drive to amusement parks, Tanger Outlet Mall, and many more attractions. This was the best vacation we've ever had. Thanks Randy & Lisa!
We were there for 7 days and it was perfect.The location was great.We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the ocean across the street. The condo is clean and provides everything you would need on a vacation. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are so comfortable. I even fell asleep on the couch one night and slept great. It is close to several eating places and shops. We also tried Steamers, Cosmos, Cobalts and Calypso Joes. All very good...my faves were Cobalts & Calypso Joes.Shopping at the Wharf is great and we found a Wal-Mart just a mile down 59.From previous experience it is the best place to get groceries.The beach is just a short walk across Beach Blvd with a cross walk right there. Randy and Lisa were always quick to answer any questions whether it be through email or text. The keys got lost in the mail and we did not receive them before we left but Randy was quick with a solution. This condo is perfect for a "sister chick" getaway, honeymoon, retirees, or a small family. I would definitely stay at Gentle Winds again. Owners, location, and cost just couldn't be beat. Thanks Randy & Lisa for sharing your wonderful place!
We stayed here 8/27-9/3. Condo is very neat, clean, and well stocked with plenty of towels, blankets, sheets, even throws and basic kitchen condiments. Even though this unit is across the street from the beach, it was a lot closer walk to the beach than some I've stayed in the past. We spent several days on the beach in front of Sea 'n Suds, loved going up for lunch. We played golf at Gulf State park. Our favorite restaurants were Atlas Oyster House in Pensacola and Cobalt at Caribe Resort in Orange Beach. One evening, we even walked to The Hangout to listen to live music after dinner. Randy offered great assistance and communication. He was very quick to respond to emails always!! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great value, but still a great location!
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the condo. The condo was very clean. Everything from the furniture to the floors were exceptional. The location of the condo is literally right across the street from access to the beach. It was nice to have everything we needed right at our hands in the condo and the surrounding area. We loved being able to walk across to watch the sunset and sunrise. We definitely could become beach bums. We felt very safe there and no problems with anyone during our stay. This was our first family vacation and it was a blessing beyond measure! We plan on making the gulf shores and our stay at this condo a yearly event. What a great family tradition and a great place to stay. We can't wait to create more family memories at this lovely condo. The price is well worth the stay in so many ways. Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to stay here and for keeping it so clean and nice! Be blessed! See ya next year! The Karl's
I absolutely loved this little condo, it was perfect for our girls getaway. Randy does not do it justice in his descriptions, this condo was wonderful. Very clean & up to date on amenities...we even enjoyed the fact that there was internet! They truly go the extra mile in making it feel safe & homey. I will MOST DEFINATELY stay here again.
Our family had a great time over spring break and this unit worked well for us. It is VERY clean and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The location is perfect for walking to the beach and many restaurants. This unit is ideal for a couple but will work for a small family, too. Highly recommended!
