Island Winds West * Great Views in 3 Directions! 8th Floor! 1/4 Mile from The Hangout! 3BR/2BA
Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States 36542
It's time for your vacation! We're happy you found our condo. We have upgraded this condo with new furnishings, new look and a more roomy feel. So much to love at Island Winds West. We are on the 8th floor in a corner unit. With the many windows in our condo you can look at the beautiful ocean and blindingly white beach below while taking in the bird's eye view of Gulf Shores to the east and west and to the lovely lagoon to the north. So much to see from the condo.
Island Winds is less than 1/4 mile from The Hangout so you are able to walk easily down to the heart of Gulf Shores and leave your vehicle at the complex. Almost everyone loves convenience on vacation and our location allows you to maximize your fun on vacation. You will be amazed at how large the beach is and how stunningly beautiful it is. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the beach and have fun playing with your family and friends.
Gulf Shores is still the type of beach town that draws people from all over to enjoy the mixture of the new and modern but also the maintaining of the old-fashioned beach town flavor. If you love to eat then you'll love the many local flavor restaurants here in town and everyone of them close by. Kids have plenty to do while here too. Probably the worst thing is that your time will go by so quickly without being able to do everything you may have planned. That's alright. It's simple. Come back again.
We'll look forward to you coming to Gulf Shores and to Island Winds West. Check us Out!!

we were able to check in early and enjoyed 4 nights at this property - weather was great. Would have liked to have beach chairs available to us as the cost to rent the chairs on the beach were about $30/day. Kitchen was well stocked with plates, pans, etc. Would absolutely return!
Randy was truly an awesome host. He was very available and friendly. The condo is located near The Hangout with many restaurants and shops close. The condo was clean, beds comfortable, and kitchen stocked. The beach is steps away with no stairs or boardwalk to cross. We were impressed and delighted, thank you Randy.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and first trip using VRBO. The condo was perfect! Randy and his family did everything they could to make us feel welcome. Condo was already stocked with essentials so that made our 8.5 hour car trip easier. View was fantastic and condo was right on the beach. We spent every day on the beach! Couldn't ask for a better vacation. Will DEFINATELY repeat. Thank you, Randy!
Location of the condo was convenient. The condo itself was pretty nice for the price. Overall it was clean (except some of utensils) and well decorated considering the age of the building. I wouldn't consider it a posh place to stay, but was definitely worth the money compared to other places in my budget range. Management was easy to work with and check-in was convenient. I would stay here again.
This was our 1st VRBO experience. We were a little nervous! But Randy was great to communicate with! We even had a tub back up and he had someone there to clear it the very next morning! The unit is spacious! AC works wonders! Lots of dishes, utensils, cookware, etc! Loved the trash chute! The building is right on the beach! And the pool is great too! We used the shared charcoal grill outside several times during the week. This is also very close to all the good places to eat and shop! Cricos pizza is YUM!!! Dollar General is like high class amazing! The building does have luggage carts and grocery carts you can use to take all your stuff to your place without multiple trips. Some things we would suggest: add a password to the wifi (it was slow at times), would've loved a Keurig (but there is a coffee pot), bathrooms could use updating, there were a couple outlets in the small bedroom that didn't work, TV's were hard to figure out at first (maybe include specific instructions for operating), the gym in the building needs serious TLC (not that I wanted to work out on vacation)! My husband is 42 and the oldest of 6 kids. They've never had a family vacation with everyone until this trip! We were able to rent 4 condos in the West building and everyone be together for the first ever Moore family vacation! We had an amazing time, our accomodations were perfect and we'll definitely be back!
The location of this condo was perfect! We walked to several places for shopping and dinner. The facility was great in terms of the elevators, pool and shower areas, and beach area. Randy was awesome as we booked the condo and communicated with me consistently prior to, during, and after our stay. This is a very well managed condo! The condo is very well stocked; you will have everything you need to cook on those nights you want to stay in and hang at the beach longer. The condo is roomy, and we had plenty of room for our family. It appears that the condo has been redone recently, but there are some things that need worked on (i.e., laminate floors in the master bedroom are not completely glued/nailed to the floor). The entrance is a little crowded, as you enter in the hallway, and there isn't really anywhere to put your beach-gear, but this was not a huge problem. Overall, this is a great condo with great managers! I would definitely stay here again!
This condo perfectly fit the needs of our family and the family that travelled with us. There were four adults, two children, and two babies under a year old so that was a large task. The condo was very spacious. We never felt like we were in a small space with so many people because there is a ton of room. Babies come with a lot of extra stuff and this condo made our stay very comfortable. Upon arrival, the condo was clean and ready for us. It is well stocked with anything you might need from kitchen appliances and utensils to extra bedding, etc. There was a lovely welcome basket left for us which was a thoughtful touch. The location is close to almost anything you would like to do in Gulf Shores which we liked since we have young children. The walk from your condo to the beach is so short...head down the elevator and you basically have your feet in the sand already. The owners were excellent at communicating and we felt very prepared for our trip because of the care they put into the planning phases. We felt they were kind and accommodating. Our families are ready to come back next year.
We really enjoyed our stay. The only reason not giving a 5 star is because the blinds open n closed thingy was missing on most of the blinds. Bedroom closest to hall bath, in need of new mattress, it was lumpy, Overall, good beach, decent view, private bedrooms. We would stay again !
This was our 1st visit to Gulf Shores. Randy was quick to respond to every question I had. His condo was the perfect fit for 7 adults. It was very clean and spacious. It had all the amenities we needed from a blender to a washer/dryer. The welcome basket and guide book added that special touch. The basket had snacks, coffee, crossword puzzle and aloe vera gel in it. The guide book had great information in it. My favorite area of the condo was the balcony. It had very nice patio furniture and a great view of the Gulf. The beach was refreshing. The sand was white and soft. The condo location was great. We were in walking distance of some great restaurants. Some of my favorite places to eat was Bahama Bob's Beach Side Café, Shrimp Basket, and Original Oyster House. We rented bikes and took a 2 mile bike ride to Golf State Park Pier. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone visiting Gulf Shores. I'm looking forward to a return trip soon...
We loved everything about the condo! The bedrooms were very spacious and cozy and placed away from the living area, which was great for putting kids to bed and being able to have kid free time without having to worry about waking the kiddos! The kitchen and living room were open and had everything you could need! The balcony...I love the balcony! It has a great view of the ocean with plenty of great seating! The beach is of course my favorite aspect! The white sand, beautiful water and sound of the waves could entertain me all day! The location of the condo is also great...lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance and of course the beach is steps away!! The welcome basket was such a nice added surprise and the welcome book has such great ideas and recommendations for Gulf Shores as well as other important names and numbers! We did also try out Coldmill Dolphin cruise...a must! We saw lots of dolphin playing and jumping out of the water! Other than that, we spent our days going between the ocean and the pool...it was a pretty rough week 😉 And we can't wait to come back soon!!
This condo was the perfect place for our family trip to Gulf Shores. Every detail was taken care of, and the location is ideal. We had direct access from the building to the gorgeous beach, and a clean and well kept outdoor pool directly behind the building. The condo is lovely, well laid out and has everything needed for cooking meals, sleeping comfortably and relaxing when you need to get out of the sun. We were within walking distance to shop and restaurants, and a short drive to many other activities and stores. Randy was a wonderful host and answered my texts right away. He also provided us with information on restaurants and activities we could do. We are already planning a return trip and are hoping we can stay here again!
What a great place to stay. The condo was very clean and we'll taken care of. The owners were very nice and made the reservation and check in process extremely easy. They left a welcome basket which was unexpected and a very nice gesture. I will definitely contact this owner to vacation again. Our favorite places to eat were Lulu's, Lamberts and the Hangout. I would recommend this condo location as it was close to the Hangout and shopping (walking distance). Condo is located right on the beach which was great. Condo was exactly as described in the listing.
Randy's condo was absolutely perfect. It was right on the beach and within walking distance to The Hangout and a few eateries like Bill's by the Beach. The place was extremely clean and was easy to make our home for the week. Randy was very accessible and a great host, I would definitely stay here again!
