Gentle Winds B7 * Perfect for Romance or Small Families! Close To Everything!
Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States 36542
We began a total renovation in late 2017 and have completed. We decided that we wanted to give it a little more intimate feel with the king bed in the bedroom. We have put in all new furniture in the living room and installed flooring. Check out the beautiful granite counters and the homey coffee bar. The whole interior has been repainted in a soothing color. We are big, really big, on cleanliness. When we go on vacation ourselves it is the first thing we want to know when staying somewhere. We do our own managing and cleaning so we make sure that the condo is immaculate when you arrive. Our goal also is to create a place that is affordable but also elegant. A place where you feel like you got more than your money's worth. We really are ideal for couples, small families or a getaway for best friends. We can sleep a maximum of 4 people to the end of 2017 and will be able to accommodate 5 in 2018.
Our complex is located directly across the street from the beach. No long walks. We walk safely over with a traffic light right on our corner and you are standing on the beach in 3 minutes after walking out the front door. Gentle Winds is close to everything. You will be able to walk to restaurants and shops. The public beach area is only 3/8ths of a mile away to visit The Hangout or other popular places down there.
We have used our experience in having our own 3 condos in making your vacation a great memory. Our goal is to have you come back over and over again. Thank you for considering our condo and any of our other places too.

This is a very nice place and we enjoyed staying there. We would give it 4 1/2 stars if we could, but here are a couple of minor issues which need to be corrected. We made the owner aware of these. Also the king size bed is really too big for the bedroom. There is very little space on each side to get in and out of bed.
Condo was nicely updated. Kitchen and bath were well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Condo is located across the street from the beach right at a crosswalk. Many places to eat within walking distance, some are on the beach. Beach is nice white sand and easy to walk. Condo is also near Gulf State park which has many miles of walking and biking trails.
We were so pleased with our stay from beginning to end. Everything was very clean and the beds were comfortable. It was just a quick walk to the beach each day. We were also a close walk or short drive to a lot of wonderful places to eat and shop. We had everything we needed to feel at home. I would definitely recommend this condo and would love to stay again next year.
We had a great stay, it was a clean & comfortable condo. Everything was there you needed. Just a couple of suggestions, a grab rail in the bath would be good. I had trouble getting out as there was nothing to grab onto. Also, the bed was way too soft and there was no lock on the back patio door. I know we were two flights up but that doesn’t stop thieves. Maybe one more thing, informing the guests you are two flights of stairs as being older, it was a little tough going up & down. These are only my suggestions. I loved staying here and would highly recommend it. Look forward to staying again. Thanks.
We appreciate the Aaron's coming to our condo and their suggestions. We put a 4" memory gel foam on our king mattress and had actually heard from others that they were very comfortable but we realize all of us have personal preferences. In response to the locking sliding glass door we have a bar behind the slider door to prevent it from opening from the outside. To me it would be easier for a thief to figure out how to go into condo's front doors than to scale over a balcony nearly 20' high but again I understand our guest's concern. Our complex has 2 floors of condos above the parking below on the ground level. Complexes with only 2 levels of units rarely have an elevator since the first level doesn't want it or want to pay for it. We all use the stairs at Gentle Winds.
We stayed here for a weekend and fell in love! The room was very clean and comfortable.Even though my husband and I were staying, we saw the bunk beds and knew we will have to return with the kids! Short walk to the beach and the owner’s packet was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone!
My husband, myself, and our 3 year old son stayed at this condo and loved it! It’s at the center of everything. It has easy beach access, and directly next door to a Surf Style store. The best part was how clean and well kept it was. I will definitely be booking this condo again.
This condo was so adorable, relaxing, and organized. More than I expected was provided! My 3 year old loved the bunk beds. I had a little trouble learning to use the electronic lock, but the owner was very easy to reach and helpful. We loved our stay and hope to book this same room in the future!!
From the minute we walked in the front door we felt at home. The decor and atmosphere of the condo is wonderful. I love the style of beachy, shabby, country, industrial all rolled into one without one overpowering the other. The double sinks in the bathroom were wonderful for when we both had to get ready to go somewhere. The kitchen had all the utensils and pots and pans needed to fix a meal. The location is convenient to everything in the area and the beach is just a quick walk across the street. I would definitely recommend booking with Randy and Lisa. It is so obvious they take great pride in their condo's. I hope to be back next year!!! Thanks again.
We had an amazing time in this clean perfectly located little condo! It’s so close to the beach we just packed up and walked over every morning! Parking underneath is perfect so we could leave all of our beach gear and sand down stairs! The kitchen had everything we needed and more! It was quiet at night so kiddos slept like rocks! We could have walked to most restaurants but it’s a little far with little kids. The drive was only a couple minutes to everything! The guide in the condo was so helpful and we went to a lot of places in there! Thanks for the amazing first family vacation! We will be back for sure!!
Great place!Very clean with everything provided for a comfortable stay.Randy, the owner, was so responsive and helpful. The condo is on the top floor so there are 2 flights of stairs. A short walk to the beach,via a crosswalk. Many restaurants close by. Good location to explore the area.
My wife and I rented this condominium for our honeymoon and it was spectacular! Mr. and Mrs. Moris were incredible to work with in the time leading up to our stay and during; any questions that we had about the unit or activities/locales near by were either available in the great reference binder they have in the unit or by contacting Mr. Moris. The beach access is across the main road (Beach Boulevard) in-between two condo buildings and presented zero issues in easily walking to the beautiful beach. The unit is furnished with a large bed by the entrance and the kitchen/living room area is comfortable and great in which to relax; my wife and I spent a lot of our time relaxing in the living room area reading and relaxing since we have the great timing of visiting during a tropical storm! The location of the condo is great for driving around Gulf Shores, it is less than a half mile from the main "T" that comes into Beach Boulevard. We recommend this condominium and renting from Mr. and Mrs. Moris with the utmost encouragement. It was a stupendous place to stay for the week and we hope to rent this condo again when next we visit Gulf Shores!
I booked this location due to the low price and close proximity to the beach. It got the job done, but left a bit to be desired. My son had issues connecting to the internet a couple of times but the owner helped us by giving us a second password. The kitchen was very small with no counter space for food prep. Although they say everything was provided to prep a meal, they delivered on pots and pans but only salt and pepper was in the pantry. The condo does need upgrading and the bathtub only gave the option for a shower because the shower valve was stuck open. My biggest gripe was the fact that the laundry is coin operated, I know that was mentioned in my pamphlet but there was no change machine at the location. One of the reasons that I choose the condo/apartment locations if for access and comforts of home. Having to pay to do laundry is rather bogus. Other than that, it was nice, the bed was comfortable. Plus being able to walk everywhere was a bonus.
I appreciate the review from our guest even though it was only a 3 star review. That was our first one under 4 stars but every guest has every right to review as they see things. Our condo is a 1BR/1BA and is not large. We have decorated it nicely and try to give it a cozy feel. I honestly hadn't thought that meal prep meant leaving all the spices, etc since they would already be open and maybe not safe. We take out leftover groceries except for salt and pepper. The valve in the bathtub pulls out allowing the tub faucet to work. Sometimes the valve is stuck and just has to be pulled out to make the faucet work too. Gentle Winds has a laundry room on the ground floor with 2 washer and 2 dryers that are coin operated. There are only about 8 units at the complex that are rented out of 16 total so there isn't traffic using the laundry room. We have owned this condo since 2012 and have had many, many 5 star reviews due to the relationship I try to build with guests and make myself available right away when needed. We always try to correct any problem as soon as it is brought to our attention as this results in return business when the guest knows they are a priority. We appreciate Edward coming.
We loved our stay! It was our first time in Gulf Shores, and these owners made it easy. We had everything we needed, including information on the area and how to enjoy the beach! It was great to be able to cook and be so close to the beach. Everything was ready for us ms easy to manage. We highly recommend this owner!
The condo was perfect for our vacation. I'm single mom and this was the first time I had rented a condo and I was nervous, but Randy answered all of my questions. We loved the location. We missed out on a lot of the noise of being on the beach and being across the street was no big deal. The condo itself is small, but in immaculate condition. The kitchen has every convenience to make meals and snacks for the beach. Several times I realized I forgot to bring something only to realize Randy and Lisa had already thought of it. We only ate out twice and were able to make food the rest of the time. The full size refrigerator had more than enough room for all of our food and bottled water. The king size bed in the bedroom was a nice luxury and comfortable. I loved having TVs in both the bedroom and the living room. Overall the condo made for a perfect vacation. Randy was always available for any questions that arose. The only issue I found is my son is already asking to come back next year!!
We booked this place at the very last minute (which can sometimes be scary). We were very satisfied with the property and had great correspondence with the owner who made sure we had whatever we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The property is right across the street from the beach that had easy access. Walmart was about a mile away which was handy when it came to getting the things we needed. My wife and family have already discussed our next trip to Gulf Shores, and booking this property will most definitely be considered.
What a great spot to vacation. The beach is beautiful, the location is perfect within walking distance to everything. I appreciated how friendly the owner Randy was, and that he took the time to speak with me and offer some great tips. The condo was lovely and clean, and had enough towels for the entire visit. I get up really early and loved the convenience of morning coffee right next door at the Waffle House, without having to wake anyone. I found the travel to Alabama easier and faster from Indiana, the prices a bit cheaper and beaches just as nice as the Florida beaches we always visit. We will absolutely return to Gulf Shores and to one of Randy's condo's just as soon as possible.
The spring break of this year found us returning to a pleasant, comfortable setting--Gentle Winds where we have stayed before! As most of the happy travelers have mentioned, the owners, Randy and Lisa, are so good at having their condo ready and equipped with all that travelers should need. And isn't that what you really want to end up experiencing, is a no-problem, comfortable arrangement to return to each day and night that you are in Gulf Shores? The condo kitchen is great with many extra amenities that you do not get with other rental opportunities. Sets of plates, bowls, glasses, silverware, a crock pot, several pots and pans, an iron and ironing board, multiple sets of towels, washcloths, and the list goes on. We have enjoyed this location a couple times and would come back again if the opportunity arises and Randy and Lisa have one of their properties available. It is just so easy and relaxing for us the travelers to have such an outstanding option for Gulf Shores and the areas around the Gulf. We were able to go out to Fort Morgan by Mobile Bay this time, and it was very interesting and meaningful. We like the restaurants around the condo like Sea and Suds, also the Hangout, and LuLu's are close by and come recommended by many of the locals. Please check out Gentle Winds location if you are going to Gulf Shores and you will have the time of your life and definitely appreciate and enjoy the condo provided by Randy and Lisa! Thanks again and we are so hopeful that we will run into you or stay at your location another time soon!
Randy, the owner, was extremely nice and responded quickly and promptly to every question I had about the condo. A week before my vacation date I received an envelope in the mail with restaurants and other places to check out. This was my fourth time vacationing in Gulf Shores, and Randy's place was the best location to everything there is to do down there. The beach is right across the street, and there is a cross walk right in front of the condo. Within walking distance is a Waffle House, The Hangout, and many souvenir shops. The Hangout is a great place to eat during the day, as well as night with live bands. A great spot for lunch is a minute drive down the road, called the Flip Flop Deli Shop. If you're willing to drive 15 minutes to Orange Beach, there is The Gulf. Here, they turned shipping containers into a lunch/dinner area with outdoor seating right on the water. Also, within walking distance is a pier. Great spot for sunsets! Definitely an easy, worry free trip if you stay at Randy's place!
Our family rents a condo at this location every year!! The location is prime for everything we need or want to do. its clean, quiet and affordable! The lower costs enables our family to enjoy a vacation, which otherwise wouldn't happen. The owners go above and beyond to meet a renters expectation. We love it here & look forward to spending quality time together here each year! Book your stay here, you will be well pleased; I guarantee it!!
Wow, what can I say!!!! My boyfriend and I were HIGHLY satisfied with this condo. We have never been to Gulf Shores, but Randy sends you a packet of restaurants to check out. Being a crosswalk away from the beach was awesome, next to Wafflehouse and a surf shop. Very well kept and will DEFINITELY book again. ☺️☺️☺️
My husband and I rented this condo for our stay in Gulfs Shore, AL late October 2016. I would stay again at this condo if the need were to ever arise again. The condo was clean not immaculate but it was clean. The balcony did not have a view of the ocean but it was a nice little area to step outside and also to open the curtains and let the light in. The beach was a very short and easy walk away. There were not many people in the complex while we were there but I would imagine it might not have been as pleasant of a stay if there were more people staying there since you could hear everything from outside but you would have that in a hotel also. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you may need and the bathroom was larger than our bathroom at home. There were two TVs one in the living room and one in the bedroom and there were plenty of channels for us to use as well as free wireless internet for us to use throughout the condo as well. There was a king size bed which was nice but the room was not quite large enough for it so there was only about a foot of space between the bed and the walls. There was also a nice bench in front of the bed so we were able to store our suitcases out of the way and not have to dig around on the floor when we needed in them (there was also a dresser and closet you could unpack if you were staying for a long enough time) Overall we were very satisfied with our time here and would recommend it to others. There are many restaurants near by there is a waffle house right next store that you can walk to easily. Of course there is the beach right across the street. We did a dolphin cruise in Orange Beach that was a short drive from the condo. There is a small Zoo near by as well as plenty of things for the kids to do like putt putt golf, go carts, etc.There is a lot of shopping that is near by as well.
From the moment you walk in the door, you feel at home. Not only do they provide you with the necessary items that you need during your visit, if you have questions or concerns, just email Mr. Moris and he gets back with you in less than 15 minutes sonetimes, talk about great customer service!! This was my boyfriend and I 1st vacation together and we enjoyed ourselves IMMENSELY! This condo gave us soooo much LIFE and comfort! Being less than 2 minutes from the beach was crrrraaaazy amazing to us! The pictures and descriptions dont do this place justice!!! We have already planned to come back each year, if not MORE!!! Mr. & Mrs. Moris, thank you all soooo much for renting out your beeeeeautiful condos to families and for making vacations like this affordable and extremely nice for visitors out there. This was our 1st time ever visiting Gulf Shores but we guarantee it is NOT the last! I honestly want to be selfish and not tell ANYONE else about this place, but I know that's not fair. Lol! What I will say is this...if you're ever in the mood for a romantic getaway, a break from the kids or even just a short family vacay....THIS is the place to stay! From the extremely comfortable bed, binge watching our favorite shows in the living room or even sitting on the patio having a nice talk and glass of wine...you feel at home at EVERY single turn! I couldn't get enough of this place honestly...I dreaded packing and leaving. 😔The Shrimp Festival was only a 8-10 min walk from us, that was the reason for our visit...and boy was it a good treat!!! Contact Mr. & Mrs. Moris if you come within 15 miles of Gulf Shores and need a place to stay...hotels are soooooooooo overrated (& overpriced)....rent a condo from them! You will NOT be disappointed, I promise!!! Thats what well be doing from this day forward. This is our little secret spot...Book this place ASAP!
We wanted to speak to the fabulous condo that Randy and Lisa provide at Gulf Breeze in Gulf Shores, AL. What a great get away to a much desired location. As other travelers have noted, the condo is very clean, and much is provided to make the stay nice and trouble-free. The kitchen and living room areas are fine for families, singles, and small groups. The bedroom is tastefully done and very comfortable. We had a great week at spring break time and would definitely enjoy a return trip sometime. Thank you for making Southern Hospitality the memory for us.
Randy & Lisa's condo at Gulf Breeze was wonderful! It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed during our stay, including a crockpot and a blender! We loved the condo and how close it was to everything we wanted to do. We will definitely be staying with them again in the future!! Randy was so easy to work with and was in touch constantly through the whole process. I'd recommend anyone looking for a clean, nicely furnished condo to contact Randy & Lisa.
We appreciate Chris and his family coming to our condo in Gulf Shores, AL. One small error in the review but could be a critical one if someone is deciding where to go. We are in Gulf Shores, Alabama and the review said Gulf Breeze which is in Florida. Gulf Breeze is a good town but no beach there. Gulf Shores has the beaches and great ones at that.
From the moment we stepped in the doors we loved the place, parking was convenient and it was just a walk across the street to the beach. It was spacious for a 1 bedroom condo, but it was just a nice place to stay! We'll be coming back again for sure! Price is a blessing to people who don't have a lot of money to spend, and I am thankful for that.
Condo was clean with many amenities. We were very happy all round. Would definitely recommend and have kept information for probable usage next summer if our grandsons come back for baseball tournament again. Beach, dining, shopping all within either walking or shirt driving distance. Gentleman who also owned condo in the complex spoke very highly of owner also.
I took my daughter to Gulf Shores for her 9th birthday, it was just the 2 of us. I was definitely anxious, being so far away from home with just the 2 of us. From the beginning, Randy was reassuring and provided me with a sense of peace, that allowed me to relax and just enjoy. The condo was immaculately clean when we arrived and was absolutely beautiful. It was conveniently located and we were at to walk to most attractions. It was heaven on earth!! I highly recommend both Randy and his condos to anyone that plans on visiting Gulf Shores. We are actually thinking about going back next year and will definitely be booking with Randy again.
This condo is my favorite by far! I have rented three condos from Mr. and Mrs. Moris and all have been absolutely wonderful. They stay was relaxing and without worries! This vacation I needed to rent two condo and Mr. Moris was extremely helpful in getting me set up and ready for my vacation. The condo was clean and move in ready. The bed was so comfortable. Slept like a baby every night I was there. To me everything is within walking distance that my daughter and I were interested in going to from shopping to eating out lunch and dinner. Directly across the street is Sea n Suds! One of our favorite places for lunch and dinner.. right off the beach too. The neighbors were friendly! Cant wait until October when we head back for the Shrimp Fest! We will most definitely be trying to book from Mr. Moris again!!
We absolutely loved the condo it was just the right size for our little family. It was conveniently located right in the middle of everything. The beach was just across the street and there where several shops that where within walking distance. I must recommend Bamaha Bob's and Tacky Jacks as a must to eat at the food and atmosphere was great.
Loved, loved, loved working with Mister Randy ! He made things so simple and easy. I planned my trip kind of last minute & he was more than willing to help me with this vacation rental. The condo was very clean and had all the proper supplies needed in the kitchen and an abundant supply of towels. Thank you so much Mister Randy for letting us use your condo for our getaway. I will definitely be trying to rent his condo again in the future!!
Mr. Moris is exceedingly nice owner who truly cares about his guests and their experience in his place. He was very accommodating and was great to work with overall. My group went to Gulf Shores on a 5 day vacation for the beaches and golf courses, we had an amazing time. The location of the condo is absolutely perfect... It's within 10 minutes of numerous golf courses and is directly across the street from the beach. It is also perfectly located within walking distance of almost every place to eat in Gulf Shores as well as the nightlife. As for inside the condo, it was spotless and extremely well kept. We had four adults staying in the place and we all slept very comfortably. It's a surprisingly spacious area! All appliances and electronics worked to perfection and we had zero problems with condo as a whole. My group had a wonderful trip and absolutely loved staying at the Moris' condo. Our stay was great and I'm 100% confident that Mr. Moris is the type of owner who would do whatever it takes to insure that your stay is the best it can possibly be.
Where do I start??? First, Randy is awesome! I booked at the last minute and he did everything to speed up the booking process. Wonderful to work with! Defiantly an owner I WILL rent from again. Second, the place was so clean and neat. Cozy condo right off the beach(across the street). Third, everything is within walking distance. Easy access in and out of the condo facility. This is a great location. I would and will defiantly stay here again! Don't skip over this rental. BOOK IT!!!
We loved working with Randy! A small issue came up, which he gave us a bigger room to stay in. It was so nice! The rooms were really clean, everything was great quality. This made for one memorable vacation! Thank you, Randy, for making this an overall great experience! I look forward to booking with you again!
Thanks Marisa for the nice review. We had an elderly gentleman staying in the condo that Marisa would be going into. Instead of moving him to another condo I asked Marisa if she would like to go to one of our 2BR condos instead of the 1BR so it worked out well. The older man didn't have to move his things and Marisa got an upgrade. We love it when a plan comes together!
This rental condo could not have been more perfect for our first trip to Gulf Shores. It is right across the street from beach and there are MA NY places to eat and hang out that are in walking distance. The condo was very clean and had everurging you could ever need. It is perfect for couples and small families. We will definitely be back for another visit. The owners are wonderful and we could not have asked for a better experience!
My husband and I were very comfortable in this condo. It was convenient to everything in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Randy always got back with me quickly with responses to payments or questions. The kitchen is pretty small so if you are a person who likes to cook a lot this may not be the place for you. However,the kitchen was supplied with most every cooking utensil and appliance you would need. We enjoyed our stay!
The owner's are fantastic and quick to respond. They're very easy to work with and very informative. The condo itself is adorable. Very clean and had all the amenities needed. It is a small space but very comfortable. I would recommend 2-4 people maximum. The beach is right across the street and lots of shopping and dining places within walking distance. I would recommend this condo to anyone, especially those looking for a girl's getaway or a couple's retreat. I'll definitely be going back!
We loved the place it was very clean and neat.Had the amenities of home already inplace. We were a family of 4 and wasn't cramped or anything.Was very close to the Beach with access just across the street. We enjoyed walking to all the restaurants and really liked ribs and red's restaurant. Grocery stores and souvenir shops all very close made it very easy to get the things we needed and wanted for our stay. Gulf Shores Adventures was about a mile away and a great place to visit. Would stay here anytime we come back.
First off, let me say that this is not the first time I have rented randy and lisa. They are always a first pick for my family and I when we are looking for a Gulf Shores condo. I love knowing if I have a question or concern I can always count on a quick response and they are all around great owners to work with. My most recent stay was during the Hangout Music Festival. Can you say GREAT location? We could easily walk to the festival as well as shops and restaurants with ease. There's nothing better than being able to park the car after a long drive to the beach and leave it. The only time we drove is to head to Walmart or the outlet malls. (I can't pass up a good outlet mall sale.) We've also stayed in gulf shores when the festival wasn't going on and there's always a ton of things to do. A bite to eat at Bahama Bobs is always on the list, as well as walking around Souvenier City. If you drive to Foley and want some awesome pizza I also love Mellow Mushroom, as we don't have one in Missouri. All-in-all, if your are looking for an affordable, clean, very convenient condo for your vacation look no further! Not only do my boyfriend and I love to stay, but my mom has already booked her condo for next year! They have officially won over this family!
What a wonderful experience!! The minute you send the first inquiry you will realize how prompt and thoughtful the owner is!! I was amazed at how gorgeous the condo was and how updated and clean the owners keep it. Lots of helpful information when you arrive and its in a perfect location. You literally walk down the stairs, push the button and cross the street to get to the beach and you are within a mile of everything you could possibly need. What a peaceful location for two friends to destress :D If you are looking for non touristy types of things check out the Blue Girl Beading Co., Rum , Tinos Fine Art and Frames and Orange Grove for local art! Awesome people! loved this area, the beach and the condo was a quiet place to come back to after our adventures!! If you are looking for a bike rental, kayak rental, zipline or an outdoor adventure the state park is just a mile east of you!! They have everything you need at very reasonable prices!!! And you have to check out the alligator that lives at the walkway on the east side of 59! :D We named him Herbert and he suns himself every morning!!
We had a great experience with the renters- very nice and helpful people. The condo was spotless and had everything we needed for our week stay. Beach access is across the street- not a far walk, very convenient. The condo is walking distance to one of the main restaurant/shop areas, and a 15 minute drive from the grocery store. Great place to stay for a relaxing vacation!
We appreciate this couple for staying at our condo. We are close to everything here. Grocery stores like Walmart, Rouses and Winn Dixie are only 1 to 1.5 miles away from our condo and takes 2-3 minutes to drive over to. We have many, many local flavor restaurants right here in Gulf Shores and several are walking distance from the condo. We are right down the street from the The Hangout and other shopping so walking is easy to do.
A couple of friends and I stayed here for spring break. It's a lovely condo in a great location, just across the street from a beautiful beach. All cooking materials are provided - even, I was glad to see, a crock pot! It is well within walking distance to all the major sights of Gulf Shores and just a mile or two to Wal-Mart to pick up anything you need! This is a great place to stay if you're looking for an affordable and excellent time.
This location is a great find! The beach is right across the street and there is a light at the corner of the property that changes just as soon as you push the cross button - and there you are on the most amazing beach. The bed is extremely comfortable as noted in other reviews. We never cooked while there but noted that the kitchen was well provided for. Ample towels in the bathroom as well. We walked to many of the local restaurants and enjoyed fresh oysters and beer right on the beach across the street. Why pay $200+ per night?
My husband and I stayed at the condo for our little honeymoon/vacation in October for 4 nights, and it was extremely affordable. The pictures do no justice because it is absolutely AMAZING. The condo was very very clean and up to date with all the amenities. Wait, did I mention how amazingly clean the condo is?!? So Amazing!!!! The bed was also very huge and comfortable. We also enjoyed the beach being directly across the street and everything else in walking distance. The location is PERFECT!!! Not to mention Walmart is a about 1.5 miles away. The owners are also very nice. They made sure that they sent out a little information packet which had everything we needed to know about the condo as well as great suggestions for dining out and having fun! This is hands down our first choice to stay while in Gulf Shores.
This was my wife and I's first visit to Gulf Shores. This place was the perfect size for us and had everything that we needed. Situated right across the street from the beach it is in a great location. It takes less than 3 minutes to walk to the beach and it is beautiful. The owners were delightful to work with and talk to. We will definitely be looking to stay here again in the future.
This was the first time I booked my own condo. IT was only my husband and I and this condo was perfect. It was very clean and well stocked with about all you need for a short stay. Access to the beach was easy. I really enjoyed just being minutes away from everything and even the state park where we rode bikes. Randy was great to work with and he calmed alot of my fears about renting. If we go back to gulf shores I would not hesitate to rent from him again. I recommend this condo highly.
We appreciate this couple coming to our condo. Part of my responsibility as an owner is to help a guest through the whole process from the first inquiry to departing from the condo. Once a guest has become comfortable with this way of renting a condo they rarely go back to the impersonal rental companies.
I cannot say enough about the condo itself or the owners; both were phenominal! The condo is in great shape, was super easy to find, and was in the perfect location! The condo was clean, well decorated, and well stocked. There were added bonuses that myself and my husband greatly appreciated such as hangers in the closet, beach chairs on the balcony, a crock pot, and a blender. The king size bed was amazingly comfortable, my husband and I both slept better than we did at home, and found ourselves wanting to sleep in! The very short walk to the beach was easy and safe, and having the surf shop right next door was extremely convenient. Randy went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. He was easy to communicate with, eager to help in any way possible, and an all around generous person. When I told him the trip was a surprise for my husband he was very accomodating in sending the information to my parents address so he wouldn't find out about it and I greatly appreciated that! I can honestly say he was one of the nicest people I've ever come across without ever even meeting him. Thank you Randy for going above and beyond my expectations and for making my vacation a wonderful experience! We can't wait to come back next year and stay longer!
I am actually writing this review while sitting in the condo now! As previous reviews have stated, the pictures do not do this condo justice. You can tell, without a doubt, that Randy and Lisa take pride in their condos and their condo's appearance. Randy was very friendly and helpful with every question I had, and my boyfriend and I appreciated all the recommendations he made for us. I would definitely recommend this condo for any couple or small family, it is the perfect size. I actually expected the beach to be a little further away than what it is so that was extremely nice. Being in such a great location, our vehicle didn't move from the parking spot except when we went to the grocery store or to the outlet mall. We walked to the hangout, the beach, and little surf shops (one RIGHT next door) I would not rent with anyone else if I ever returned to Gulf Shores!! Thank you so much for making our vacation that much better with this wonderful condo.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and our first time using VRBO. We couldn't have picked a better condo! The location was great. With 3 small kids in tow we loved the convenience of being right across the street from the beach and having a crosswalk and signal to get there. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners were very easy to work with; everything was explained and simple. We will be staying here again.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for a long weekend during Gulf Shores' annual music festival. The condo is very clean and comfortable with a large bathroom. We walked to the beach every morning, and enjoyed both the water and the people that were on the section of beach just across the street from this condo. The short walking distance, well under a mile, to several shops and restaurants was perfect for us since we didn't bring a car. We had a great time. The owners are professional and easy to work with. They explained all the costs up front, recommended things to do and places to eat, and after we left they had our deposit returned in three days. We will be looking at this owner's personal website first the next time we head for Gulf Shores.
First time using VRBO and so very pleased! I’ve always stayed in hotels on the beach in Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. This property is ideally located Gulf Shores. This was a perfect place to stay, located within minutes (walking distance) from The Hangout and so much more! The condo was more than we could ask for and the photos accurately described the property. The owners, Lisa and Randy were more than wonderful throughout the process, offering helpful travel tips into Mobile during the traffic peak times. My son loved walking across the street to the beach in the mornings to look for seashells...or running there in the evenings looking for crabs! We all came away with the best family memories. Thank you for such a great place to stay. Randy, you were a pleasure to work with! Gracious, polite, and very accommodating. No one could ask for more from an owner. Thank you.
This is the 4th time we've stayed at Randy's condo. Cleanliness and comfort are our main requirements and the condo fits the bill.the location is perfect also. The beach is across the street,and a number of restaurants are within walking distance.Gulfside Grill is one of our favorites, but there's also Sea and Suds , Best Western Pancake House, and the Hangout. The Wharf and Pelican Place are a short drive away and have many restaurants as well as shopping. Rouses just opened up a new grocery store which brings the flavors of New Orleans to the Gulf Coast. The Bodenhamer Rec. Center has exercise classes, a weight room and wonderful swimming pool for those wanting to maintain their fitness programs. There's something going on all the time in Gulf Shores and Orange beach , from art fairs to musical presentations so there's no reason to be bored if you want something other than beaching, and this condo is the perfect place for your holiday.
This was our first time to stay in a condo like this! We normally stay in the high rise condos! I will try my best to stay in one of Randy's condos from now on! We were very surprised at the level of cleanliness! It was spotless! It was also in the middle of everything so you could walk to lots of places, no need to use the car too much!!! The beach was very easy to get toand not far from the condo! It was the ideal place for my family of four! Also very quiet and well stocked with everything that you would need for a long relaxing vacation!
We had never used VRBO before and decided to give it a try this year. I contacted Randy to get details about the rental property and he was VERY helpful in educating us on what needed to be done to rent the property, kept in contact with us after receiving our payment, and sent us the information to get into the condo way in advance of our arrival. In addition he sent us information about things to do while we were in Gulf Shores and tips on getting the best deals while we were there! When we arrived at the condo we were surprised to see that it was better than the pictures showed. The rooms were VERY clean, the wifi, cable, microwave, and all the other appliances that you don't remember you might need are all there too! We are already thinking about going back to the condo next year because our experience with Randy was so great! I highly recommend this condo (except for the week we want to visit!!). Thank you so much Randy for making our vacation so great!
This was our 3rd visit to Gulf Shores but our first staying at this condo. We decided to stay 2 weeks this time and are so happy we picked this place. It felt like home. The other place we stayed felt as if we could never get comfortable. This has plenty of space for everything. Nicely decorated with just about anything you could need. The beach is easily accessible across the street. We had our 6 year old and it was fine crossing the street with everything in tow. The condo even has a few beach chairs for you! The place is very quiet. Everyone here is very friendly. Just mostly families. We did a lot of takeout food from S & S down the street. We ate at Lulus, Shrimp basket, and original steamers. We also ventured out to the USS alabama. That was awesome. We also like to go to orange beach to eat and do shopping. We charted a private boat to fish. That was great too. San Roc Cay is great at helping you find what works for you. Great shops too! Of course the outlet mall is fun. Pensacola beach is just a short drive and a beautiful one. Airforce museum is awesome and free! Fair hope is a cute town. Fun to just walk around and shop and eat. We just love it here! Traveled from Houston area. All the reviews are right- all you need is some beach towels and you are set! I have zero complaints about this place! Just wonderful!! Working with Randy has been so easy. My husband an I already said next time we come here this is the place for us. I personally think waiting on elevators while you're holding all your beach gear is a pain. Here you just leave your door and walk down stairs and your there. Thank you Randy for a GREAT experience. I am recommending this place to my family and friends as well!
What a great review. Our guest's however had stayed at one of our other condos down the street from here and they had the wrong link for doing the review. Although this review would also describe this condo we as owners want the review to accurately portray the condo they stayed for their 2 weeks.
My husband and I decided to make last minute reservations for memorial weekend to stay in gulf shores and the owners were very helpful with trying to work something out with us to get us a place to stay. We are so glad they did! The condo they rented us was completely affordable for a beach vacation and convent to walking everywhere! We walked to the beach & breakfast and the surf shop next door. Loved having a personal parking spot as well. My husband had never been on a beach vacation before now and he had a wonderful time! The weather was perfect and the condo had a huge king size bed that we really needed after a long day in the waves! :) I definitely recommend staying with the Moris's they make it so easy, it's clean & you get to go in vacation not worrying about anything. We look forward to staying with them in the future!
We stayed here during the Hangout Music Festival. VERY convenient to all amenities, beautiful condo that had everything we needed. The owners were very responsive both before and after our stay, exceeding any expectations we had. Would not hesitate to stay here again personally or recommend this condo to anyone interested in a quiet get-a-way at the beach.
My husband, daughter, and I stayed at this wonderful condo for a week. It was clean and cozy and include everything we needed to enjoy our stay at the beach. There was beach access just across the street. We were very close to everything in Gulf Shores. The owners were very nice and very prompt with their replies to emails. I would highly recommend staying at this condo and I hope to be able to return again. I would definitely stay here again. And I just can not say enough that the owners are just wonderful people.
This trip was the second time we stayed at the condo. The first time was for one week and this year we stayed for two weeks. Randy makes everything so easy that all you have to do is have fun. If you are looking for a place close to food & shopping you can't beat this. You will feel at home once you unlock the door. Everything you need is provided and is very clean and nicely decorated. Covered parking is a plus.
Randy and Lisa keep a very nice, clean and quiet condo in Gulf Shores. It is exactly as advertised. The quality of the sheets, towels, bed, draperies, etc., was all top-notch. It does not face the road (and therefore the beach), which to me is a good thing as it was quiet. It is on the 3rd floor, which means a little more stairs but a lot more quiet. It is not EXACTLY one bedroom, as the main sleeping area is not separated from the main area by a door that can close. If it is just a couple or a couple with small children, this works out fine. If this is two couples or 4-5 adults, just understand that the privacy is not the same as a separate bedroom. Having two parking places in the shade is a great feature during the hot months. It is tight between the pilings, but worth the trouble of parking carefully. Centrally located, so you can walk lots of places - Sea n' Suds is right across the street, for instance. POSITVES: Good value for the $, helpful and accessable owners, central location, CLEAN & QUIET. NEGATIVES: Nothing to speak of. I could not figure out the coffee maker. The fiberglass tub insert will need to be replaced someday but it was very clean and drained well. There is no icemaker in the fridge, so you will need to stock your cooler elsewhere. If you've read this far, you know Gentle Winds East is not a high-rise with a balcony on the beach. As long as you know what you are looking at, I would definitely reccomend this condo to friends and family.
We appreciate this couple spending a weekend at our condo. Our complex has assigned parking underneath the condos. Our condo is on the 2nd floor above the parking underneath. The condo is not an efficiency where the everything is in the same room. Our bedroom and the living room area is separated by an approximate 12' hallway. The bath is between the bedroom and living room area thus creating separation.
We were in Gulf Shores for our first time. Our conco was the cleanest and best maintained one we have ever stayed in. Everything anyone could need to prepare a meal or just relax was provided. The owners are very thoughtful about what you might need or want for your stay. I would recomend this condo for any one that wants to go to the Gulf for vacation.
We had a wonderful vacation staying at the condo. This was my first time renting a condo online and I was nervous about it. However, Randy was very quick at answering all my questions, very helpful, and a pleasure to do business with. The condo is great! It is located just across the street from the beach. We were very pleased with how clean the condo was.The condo had plenty of room for three adults and a two year old. We enjoyed how close the condo was to everything. A Waffle House right next door, surf shop, ice cream shop, and lots of great places to eat. We did not want our stay to end. We will definitely be returning to this condo as soon as we can. I highly recommend it!
We had a wonderful experience staying at this condo. Randy was very easy to work with and answered all of my questions quickly. I never felt as though I didn't know what to expect and since this was the first time I was renting a condo and the first time I was using this website, I couldn't have been more pleased. We loved the condo and it suited our needs perfectly. We knew exactly what we were getting and there were no surprises with the appearance of the unit or the location. There was only two of us traveling this time and we were able to walk almost everywhere we wanted to get to. The location in Gulf Shores was accessible and we were close to activities in Orange Beach as well. The condo is perfect for a couple and even a small family. We loved the Pier and visited that our last night there. The beach location across the street was in front of two other condo units, but we never felt crowded. We visited during the first week of August, so the crowds were much smaller also, but the weather was amazing. There were many amazing restaurants all within 5 minutes or less of the condo, DeSoto's is one I would recommend. We would definitely rent this condo again and wouldn't hesitate to rent a different unit from Randy. You can tell that he likes providing this service and takes pride in his properties.
The process of reserving and confirming our stay with the owner was easy.The condo was very clean and looked almost exactly like the pictures. It was easy to find and was directly beside the Waffle House. The beach was right across the street and we felt comfortable going back and forth. The noise level from around the condo was kept to a minimum. Also having a laundry facility to use was great. I would definitely recommend this condo to a small family or just a couple wanting to get away. Can't wait til we can go back.
My wife and I were hoping for a fun, relaxing place to vacation with our three girls (ages 6,5, and 2). We always want our vacations to give our girls memories to last a lifetime. Our stay at Gentle Winds East was everything we hoped for, and then some! Gulf Shores is beautiful, the family-oriented restaurants and attractions were terrific, and the condo was super clean, comfortable, set-up perfectly for our family to have a memorable stay. The owners of the property were caring and friendly. Their recommendations were spot-on and helped us maximize our time. My only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer!
My family and I absolutely loved the condo!! We were within walking distance to all the restraunts, hotels, and shops. We had access to the beach directly accross from the condo. We enjoyed the relaxing decor of the condo, and the bed was so comfortable I had to pull my husband out each morning:) Will be sure to return in the future!!!!
I have never stayed in a place where the owner was so accomadating! I first came in contact with Randy and his wife while looking for a condo in Gulf Shores on VRBO. I contacted him about another condo he had, but while I was waitng to hear back from my friend as to whether she could go or not the condo was rented. He was so nice in letting me know that he had one that would become available, he had just purchased in a couple of weeks...he stayed in contact with me all the way until it was ready to rent even sending me pictures of it when he had finished the makeover so i could see what it looked like! You just don't get the kind of one on one treatment they gave to me any more. I have never been so pleased! The pictures he has posted tell it all ! What a beautiful place he and his wife have created. We were just right across the street from the beach and within walking distance of several resturants. With it being just me and another girlfriend it was a place we felt very safe in and around also. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. I know I'm already planning another trip back in the fall!
We appreciated the faith this guest put in us by renting our condo before we had even done the makeover of the condo. We raced to get done with it just like they do on HGTV but we did it!
This is our second time renting from the Moris's & it is always the best of the best!! There's no better way to have the perfect vacation without breaking the bank & still have the time of your life! The beach is literally a hop across the street & you're right in the heart of the greatest shops and restaurants !!! Can't wait to be back!!!
