Gentle Winds A1 ** Beachy & Affordable! A Place to Come To & Come Back Over and Over Again!
Gulf Shores, Alabama, United States 36542
Changes coming in late 2019. We are doing some remodeling and renovating here. In December 2020 we will be adding a King bed and removing the queen beds from bedroom. Bunk beds are being built in to hold small children. We are installing new floors as well as a sliding door for the bedroom. New pictures will be taken when work is completed in December.

When I say girls trip I mean a friendship for 35plus years, it was absolutely amazing! Condo was perfect, loved parking underneath and perfect view....next to everything! Randy was right on 100%, as if he walked us thru it himself! We have made this a new tradition for the same time every year❤️
This was such a cute property and the location couldn't have been better! We just loaded up our wagon and walked across the street to the beach. There is a convenient store next to the property we frequented often, and laundry on site. When we checked in on Saturday it was a bit loud due to the traffic, but quickly died down. The stay was very peaceful. It is definitely a family friendly location. Randy provided lots of restaurant ideas and fun things to do! It was like a friend giving us the inside scoop. We did have one little mishap with the A/C, but Randy was on top of it and had it fixed in no time! We highly recommend staying here.
Very well kept up property with good location and quick access to the beach. Waffle House on one side. We didn't notice any strong smell from it - Only noticed while entering/exiting property. Sitting on the balcony was not a problem. One thing to note, The bedroom is the first room you come into from the outside, and there is no doorway seperating it from the rest of the suite. Was not an issue for us, but good to know if this is a romantic shared vacation.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the condo was very clean, the kitchen fully stocked and you can't beat the location without paying double what Randy charges to be directly on the beach. It is less than a two minute walk to the sand across the street and centrally located to all the restaurants and activities we were interested in. Will definitely consider staying here again.
Right across the street from the beach and within walking distance to all the shopping and restaurants you could ever find. The place was clean, nice, and very affordable. The owner will send you a letter with some very good recommendations for food and swimming. Loved it and would love to come back.
Good place to stay just needs a bigger hot water tank 1 shower and it’s out that’s the only negative
We appreciate Jamie coming to our condo that week this spring. We have a 40 gallon water heater tank in our condo. We have owned the condo for 12 years and this was the first time we have heard about or seen in a review the hot water issue for Jamie. We will need to stay ourselves very soon to check that out. Thanks again for coming!
This was my second time in this condo. For the price, location and hospitality, you will not find a better place to stay. The beach is so close and easy to get to and there are many restaurants within walking distance. The market next door has any last minute items you would need. I can’t wait to go back!
We have rented from Randy and Lisa several times and their properties are always on point. They are clean, well equipped and everything works as it should. The condos at Gentle Winds suite us just fine. It is a small building without lots of extras at a reasonable price. We are out and about most days and we just need a nice place to spend the evenings. The weather for this trip was less than ideal but we made the best of it. We spent a little more time than usual inside because of the weather, I was glad we had a comfortable place.
Found this location/owner on Google and he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and fun things to do. When we first arrived we were impressed how clean and neat it was. Very well kept. Lots of things to do within walking distance. The only thing we wished could have been better was the view of the beach. The rental is directly across the street from the beach with easy beach access but having a view of the beach from the balcony would be the only desire when staying here. Pricing was very fair, and allowed us to eat out more!!! We plan on coming down again next year and when we do I plan on calling this owner again!
We appreciate Phillip coming to our condo on a last minute reservation. We do state in our descriptions that we are across the street from the beach with easy access over to the beach. Our view is between Seawind's buildings to see the water. It is a limited view since we are not directly on the beach. Our rates are much lower than condos on the beach side which, as Phillip mentions, leaves money left over for other things. The way we have looked at this is we have almost all the amenities of a beach vacation that people have spending considerably more. We use the same beaches, same restaurants, same recreations, same entertainment, same attractions, same shopping and more than I can mention here.
My family and I have been here a few times but this year was special- we have 2 more additions to our family; my 18 month old granddaughter and my new daughter in law who’s expecting my grandson in November! We had a great time! I love this place and I’m sure we will be back again!
I didn’t know there was no bedroom door - so absolutely no privacy. The upstairs people and new people coming in sounded like they were coming through the ceiling at any moment. I was woken up every night because of the noise level and location of stairs to the beds - not bedroom - the beds. Walls are paper thin. Place was clean - just extremely loud with zero privacy. Shouldn’t call it a bedroom If it doesn’t have a door.
We as owners are disappointed if one of our valued guests have a poor experience. I hate for our guest this week didn't enjoy her stay at our condo. Over the years we have received over 150 reviews that are 5 star and 4 star. This was a first for us in getting a 2 star review but we have to take the bad with the good. My wife and I are proud to have this condo and have worked over 11 years in here making it the very best possible. We keep it updated in furnishings and amenities. We have rates lower than hotels and we are directly across the street from the beach with some view of water. We will always be a value for guests just needing to get to the beach and can't afford the high rise complexes. Regardless of the kind of review we receive we will always be thankful for every inquirer, every traveler and every guest that stays with us. We do apologize that our condo didn't meet expectations for this guest but we will keep on working hard.
This gem of condo is so very clean and comfortable. The location is great!!! The view from the balcony is wonderful!! There was plenty of storage space for all of our clothes, beach toys and bathroom items. Randy was extremely helpful! I would highly recommend this condo!!!!!!!!! We are looking to go back next year!!!!! I LOVED this condo!
This was a great place to stay for our family spring break. The condo is in walking distance to several amenities that were kid friendly. We have 4 boys ages 8, 6, 5, and 1, so we spent a lot of time at the beach which is directly across the street. We found a cool local park the kids loved, we took advantage of all the restaurants, spent a day at the Hangout (very kid friendly), and hiked a couple of paths while we were there. One day we drove to Destin, FL to chase the sun. Overall our stay was really great. Randy was an excellent communicator, and we didn't have any problems with the condo. It had all the essentials that we needed. I'd totally recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Gulf Shores.
This condo was perfect for our week long stay in Gulf Shores! The location is directly across the street from the beach and is convenient to everything in Gulf Shores along with Orange Beach being a quick car ride away! In addition, the condo is kept in pristine condition. I would highly recommend this condo when visiting Gulf Shores!
This was a great place for my family to stay! The place was VERY clean and was stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Randy stayed in excellent communication and was very informative. He helped us with family-friendly attractions, trails to hike, and places to eat. The condo is right across from the beach. It's a minute walk to the white sandy shores. There is a Surf Style next door, as well as a small market. All amenities are nearby if not within walking distance. I would definitely recommend this place to all who are considering it. *Convenient parking as well :)
We have rented from Randy and Lisa several times and the experience has always been positive. Their condos are always super clean and everything works as it should. Gentle Winds is a great place for us. A clean comfortable condo at a very reasonable price. Our van wouldn't start on our last night and my wife called Randy to see if he knew of anyone that could come try and jump us before I had it towed. He happened to be in town and came by to jump us. It was a bad battery. Thanks again Randy.
This is a nice condo and very well maintained. The only reason not five-stars: - no door for the bedroom. My wife SNORES badly and the openness, even with her on the sofa brought sleepless nights before a marathon. The Waffle House right next to the unit, while brightly lit all night long was not a issue. I would return again in a heartbeat with travelers who do not snore. It is tough to find this kind of value within walking proximity to the beach anywhere anymore. Communications with the owner have been great and friendly. Highly recommend this rental.
We have stayed in one of Randy's and Lisa's variety of rentals for over the past 4-5 years now at least once, if not twice a year. This year we spent 9 nights in this rental as it is perfectly located across the street from the beach, they main reason for our visit to Gulf Shores. The rental is always spotless, and is decorated in ocean motif with comfortable furniture. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil you could possibly need and you will get a great nights sleep on quality, comfortable beds. We like that our auto is parked directly under the condo (covered and secure) and it's a close walk up some stairs to the condo. The balcony with chairs is an added plus to be able to sit out there with morning coffee and look across at a glimpse of the ocean and high rises. Plenty of restaurants nearby to walk to and eating in Gulf Shores is fantastic! There are Dolphins boat tours (we love these trips ) and the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola which is free and awesome to visit. A lot to see and do in the area. Randy's condos are an excellent place to stay for visiting Gulf Shores and the beach. We are already planning next spring's return visit, and will be once again staying here. When you have a great place to stay, why change?
Great place! Waffle house, and a store right next to it great parking out of the weather and a really clean and comfortable home like feel. Only 2 down sides no pool but u can get into a few around it so not that bad. And if you have kids I think it would be hard to have some ( adult time). I got to meet Randy he is a really nice guy. I would recommend it because it is also priced really great too.
Randy was very helpful in planning our trip to Gulf Shores. He was very responsive to texts and e-mails! The property was exactly as stated online. We enjoyed having a short walk across the street and there was the beach! The corner property right by a traffic light was nice. It was also handy if we wanted to grab breakfast with the Waffle House right next door. Another thing that was a nice extra was the showers located under the condos to wash off before we went to our room! The condo was clean and in great shape! We also enjoyed our balcony with an ocean view! We will definitely get in touch with Randy again when we come back! We had a great 1st trip to Gulf Shores!
The location was great and the owner was super to work with. It was so nice to be able to walk across the street to the beach. The surf style shop looked new and actually had reasonable prices. The bad- in the pics the condo looks nice, but in person every thing is pretty worn out and old. I did not sleep well at all. There was sand in the sheets and it was so noisy all the time in the hall and could hear people all night and day stomping above our heads. Heard the semi drop off the supplies to the Waffle House at 2:00 am. Like I said did not sleep well at all very noisy. Overall it was okay, but will not return to this condo.
It had to happen sooner or later. After 161 reviews we got our first review less than 4 stars. We understand that every stay for every guest is not identical and it looks like this may not have been a great stay for this couple that stayed 3 nights. I hate that for them since we value every guest that stays at our condo. Our complex is next to a Waffle House and the majority of our guests have loved the convenience of getting their coffee there or going for breakfast or late night meal. Waffle House may be an acquired taste. Certainly loved here in the south. I am disappointed about the "worn" part since we bought a new sofa and new recliner in September 2015 or just under 2 years ago. We also did a complete redecorating and painted the whole condo in December 2015 and felt proud of how it came out. We are a "mom and pop" business and take a lot of pride in providing a nice and clean condo for a really good price. Much less than hotels. We hope that all the circumstances of Kate's stay will not repeat themselves for other guests since we have had a great history this past 11 years in our condo. We had to take our lumps this time but we know we have a great place.
My husband and I went to Alabama July1-8th.We stayed at Randy and Lisa's condo at Gentle Winds, it was great .The condo was very clean and had everything you need to cook with.The condo is walking distance to alot of stuff,like the Hangout,Waffle House,Sea and Suds,lots of souvenir shops,and best of all right across the road is the beach. Its wonderful, you can see the beach from the balcony. We enjoyed our stay and definitely will be back again.Thank You for letting us stay at your condo.....Wallace's
I have visited Gulf Shores East for the past 4 years and love my time here. I travel with my adult daughter and her son and we found this gem on vrbo the first year, and have continued to come every year since then. The owners have become friends because of the way they make the condo so clean, comfortable and stocked. The kitchen is perfect for guests who like to cook in. It is a great location, close to stores, grocery stores and plenty of fun things to do!! Most relaxing vacation year after year!!
This property was perfect for our family of 4. Checking in and out was a breeze. The kitchen had everything we needed during our stay. (One Week). The bathroom is large compared to the rest of the unit and we had plenty of towels for all of the entire week. We did use the coin laundry downstairs and had no problems. The location of this unit is extremely convenient. Its far enough away from the main shops that traffic isn't too bad, but close enough where you can walk to a lot of attractions. That being said, the street traffic can be loud-- (not enough to disrupt sleep but enough where you can't sit on the porch and have a conversation.) You also don't have direct views of the beach but you are literally across the street. Perfect if you have small kids that need to dart back for potty breaks, naps etc. We really enjoyed our stay! Randy was very helpful when we came back and found our the AC wasn't turning on. Told us were to find batteries and got it fixed within minutes. We have a lot of friends in the area and would gladly recommend this property to them. We will stay here again next time we come back.
Best experience I have EVER had renting a place to stay for vacation!!!! The process of renting was easy and secure. Mr. Moris was so friendly and helpful during the renting process and answered any and all questions I had. The condo was very clean and VERY well stocked with what we needed for our stay. The location to everything was more than convenient and the Moris family provided a detailed book letting us know what to do and see while in Gulf Shores. This was the BEST vacation we have had in a long time and we will for sure return to stay in the same place one day.
Very cute and cozy space, very clean and kitchen stocked with almost every pot/pan/utensil you could need. Balcony/deck is nice, has several chairs, and some things for the kids to use at the beach. This unit faces the street, so there is considerable traffic noise when the deck door is open. Close to lots of shopping and restaurants (Waffle House right next door). Short drive to Orange Beach, AL and Perdido Key, FL. Walk across the street to the beach, get there early to reserve chairs/umbrellas. We had a wonderful time!
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!
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 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.
Those are the kind of negatives I like. They did NOT want to leave. I like that .
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.
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.
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!
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.
We stayed in Randy's condo for four nights and couldn't have been happier with our choice! Randy was very easy to deal with and was quick to respond during the whole booking process. We found the condo just as pictured and directly across the street from the beach. You could be on the beach in less than three minutes. This condo was an excellent value and because it is in such a small complex it was very quiet. Parking was very easy since there is dedicated parking for each unit. We chose this unit for it's value, location and beachy look. We weren't disappointed! It was clean and well maintained with comfortable beds and nice furniture. We left just prior to the Shrimp Festival, but setup had already begun and walking to it would have been a breeze. We drove most places we visited, but there are a few restaurants within walking distance. Sea 'n Suds is nearly across the street, Waffle House is next door, Hooters and several other seafood restaurants are less than a five minute walk away. While we were there we visited Lucy Buffet's LuLu's. The food, atmosphere and live music were amazing! We also visited Crico's pizza, Tacky Jacks, Scoops and Matt's Homemade Ice Cream. Matt's was AMAZING! We also drove over to Orange Beach one day for lunch at Hazel's Seafood. We wished we had gone for dinner instead as they have a full seafood buffet with locally sourced seafood. The fishing pier was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Next time we'll take our fishing gear to fish, but it was well worth the $3 per person to walk out and enjoy the scenery. We loved our stay and can't wait to come back and we'll definitely be renting from Randy again!
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!
This is why my wife and I began our condo business. Great people that come every week and so many returning guests. Thank you Michelle for the kind words and for coming back each year.
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.
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.
Thanks Randy for the perfect place to say on vacation and get some much needed rest. The condo was everything the former reviews stated and much more. the description about location, layout, and amenities is accurate regarding your condo. Will have to shared that I have stayed in Gulf Shores many times and this property was the cleanest and most well-maintained condo I have ever had the pleasure to spend a stay. Randy you did a great job with customer service leaving no detail to chance. Thanks for allowing me to spend time away from home and still feel at home.
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!!!!
Our complex has 16 condos. We have a laundry room on the ground floor which is a locked room. Keys are supplied to our guest. Washers and dryers are coin operated.
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!
Our condo is on East Beach Blvd and we are directly across the street from the beach. Our balcony has a view of the gulf between the complexes across from us and it does look up and down Beach Blvd. When you have a condo across the street from the beach our goal is to provide a first class condo and a rate that makes it possible for many to come to the beach on vacation. We appreciate this couple coming to Gulf Shores for their first time and hope their impressions will bring them back.
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 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 :)
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!
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
We had a group of 6 friends stay in this condo for 4 days in August. It was perfect! The location is wonderful, a 30 second walk across the street to the beach, and within a short walk to lots of great bars and restaurants. Gulf Shores is full of friendly people and great times. I would recommend this spot to anyone! Family friendly, but also a perfect party spot ;)
I'm glad that in the review that it was mentioned that Gulf Shores is Family Friendly. That is probably our #1 asset in Gulf Shores. Our complex is small with only 16 units and we don't encourage it to be a "party spot" as we cater to families. Hopefully our guest was referring to finding some of the night spots in Gulf Shores or Orange Beach for the party.
My husband and I stayed in this condo for our vacation last week and it was lovely. It is decorated very tastefully and was very clean and cozy. Randy was very easy to work with when we were booking out reservation and was always willing to answer questions promptly. One night, we had an issue with the air conditioning, and Randy promptly called the AC service first thing in the morning for us and it was fixed within the hour. We very much appreciated his attention! The condo is stocked with lots of plates, silverware, cookware, towels, and just about everything else that you would need to enjoy your vacation comfortably. The area that the condo is located in is a hub of activity as there are lots of shops and restaurants just down the street, and this made it easy to get everywhere on foot. Our favorite things to do were enjoying the beach, sea kayaking with BeachnRiver Kayaks, grilling out at the state park (just about a mile down the road to the left of the condo), visiting Fort Morgan, and going to the Shrimp Basket and Shipps Island Thyme at Zeke's Marina for dinner.
If you come to Gulf Shores and go to Fort Morgan you can ride with your vehicle on a ferry over to Dauphin Island and back. That is a fun thing to do. Our places have wide walking, running and biking lanes to safely walk or ride to stores and restaurants that are all within 3/8ths of a mile from the condo.
This is a great place for a small family; it's across from the beach and near many of the "hot" spots. The condo is very clean, comfortable, and has everything you need; the laundry and covered parking are great to have also; the owner is just a phone call or email away and very nice. I hope to go back next year too. Rene' S.
It was our first time visiting Gulf Shores, we had a FANTASTIC experience. Randy and Lisa made it FIRST CLASS. The Condo was great, clean, well kept, across street from the beach, close to the Hang Out and several restaurants near by. Randy and Lisa took care of every detail to make sure from the arrival to departure we had an wonderfull experience. My 6 year old son felt like home, he already made vacation plans for next year at Randy's condo. Thank you Randy Lisa, you guys made this vacation very SPECIAL to my family.
My family very much enjoyed our stay at Gentle Winds. The cozy condo housed the 6 of us comfortably. The kitchen was amply stocked for us to cook meals the entire week. There is a crosswalk conveniently located right outside; making the walk to the beach was more than manageable (even with 4 children). I would recommend this rental!
We enjoyed staying at this rental during our honeymoon. My wife had never been to Gulf Shores before but the town made a good impression on her and we will be back sometime. The rental is perfect for couples seeking to get away for a week. The beach is just a short walk across the road and restaurants are very close by. The owners were very friendly and willing to help in anyway. Thank you for an enjoyable stay!
This was our first time EVER to Gulf Shores! We were glad we found this condo for our first time. We felt very welcomed into this complex. We enjoyed the shopping in Foley which was just about 10 miles away. My son enjoyed Deep Sea Fishing with San Roc Cay. There's lots to do in Gulf Shores, and this condo was great to go and rest after long, hot days on the beach! Thanks Randy and Lisa for sharing your condo with us!
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at This Condo April 16, 2011 through April 23, 2011. We found the stay very enjoyable with easy access to the beach and centrally located close to a multitude of eating establishments. We especially appreciated the balcony and spent may hours sitting outside enjoying the warm Spring evenings watching as our fellow tourist passed by. The inner dwellings of the condo were clean, organized, and comfortable. My Wife and I are already making plans to visit the Gulf Shores area again next year; and we will surely use Gentle Winds on our visit.
I would recommend Gentle Winds East because it is so neat , clean, and most of all affordable. Everything for cooking and eating is supplied in the nicely decorated kitchen. My husband and I really enjoyed cooking breakfast in the morning. We walked to the beach during the day and a few times at night. The good restaraunts are within walking distance too. Live Bait was delicious. Doc's seafood and Original Oyster House too. Randy was availabe to answer any questions and made us feel right at home.
This was a great place!!! It was nicely decorated and had that beach vacation feeling, it was just perfect!! The condo was well equipped with just about anything and everything you would need while on vacation. I love the location of this condo also because you weren't to far away from anything such as the beach, or eating places, Wal-Mart, and also fun activities such as the Track were like 10 minutes away. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to go on vacation and not be broke. This condo was affordable and nice which I like because we could put more money towards doing other activities instead of paying a arm and leg for our lodging. I hope to be able to book this condo and come back next year!!! Hope this helps everyone... :)
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Gentle Winds Condo, it was quiet, clean, modern, and well equipped. It was a great place to stay for the price and everything was accessible for our needs. My husband and I enjoyed the beach, seafood, and the quiet time together, and would highly recommend it to others. Randy was very nice and was available to answer our questions before and during our stay. It's very nice to see when properties are well maintained.
Was perfect for the two of us. No problem with the parking. Ate at the Sea and Suds a few times cause the food was good and reasonable. The condo had basically every thing we needed. the beach was great especially when all you had to do was cross the street. We would surely use the condo again and would recommend it to friends.
Condo is in a great location, right out the door and through the pedestrian crosswalk a few more feet and your at the beach! Condo was very clean, beautifully decorated, and supplied with just about everything you need, plenty of utensils, towels, and linens. Owners are very much involved, you couldn't ask for better communication. They even given you some of their best suggestions on the local area for eating and recreation. My personal favorite was Bahama Bobs! But you must try LuLu's at the marina. Outlet mall is just a short ways into Foley and I must suggest a little place called Tallulahas Treasures east of the condo in Orange Beach very cute boutique. We have not been able to relax on a vacation in many years as much as we did on this one. Beds were great, area felt safe and was pretty quiet. Beaches were clean with white sands and the Gulf Pier views were amazing. Highly recommend this condo for small families, couples, and girls weekends, the area is fantastic to just relax but you can certainly find night activities as well.
We met this family as they were leaving and they hated to leave. The dad even had adopted a southern accent. We are so glad when guests have a good time and share their visit through the review. We look forward to them coming back again next year.
My roommates and I had a wonderful time during our stay in Gulf Shores! This condo is just like the pictures and had everything that we needed or could have ever needed. The condo was very clean & modern (and had the best shower head!). Randy was very helpful through the entire process and even gave suggestions of were to go once we were in Gulf Shores. I would recommend that everyone goes to Lambert's Cafe in Foley - but go early on during your stay because you will have enough leftovers for the next 2 meals! I would also recommend going to the Nature Center at the State Park in Gulf Shores. We got to pet a baby alligator and they told us what path to walk down so that we could see alligators in the wild.
My friends and I drove 14 hours to stay at this condo, see the sights, and have adventures in Gulf Shores, and it was well worth the trip! The condo was real cute, just as the pictures suggest. It was well furnished with bath towels and such, cooking utensils, silverware, dishes, hangers in the closet, and even cooking spray, which was helpful for the pancakes we made. I think my favorite was the adjustable showerhead. Randy and Lisa seemed to think of everything! They were also very courteous and answered questions we had about the area and different sights to see. The location was excellent, as it was right across the road from the beach. We had view of the ocean from the outside deck, and we simply had to walk across the road and through the pathway of the other hotels to step foot in the sand. It was definitely a friendly neighborhood, and as a young woman, I felt very safe. Florida is only about 11 miles away from the condo, so my friends and I rode our bikes to the "Flora-bama" state line and had ice cream at a nearby shop. I would recommend this to anyone seeking a vacation or adventures near the ocean, and I'd definitely come back! Thank you, Randy and Lisa! :)
This condo was everything it was supposed to be, and more. It was cute, clean, and well-maintained. Its location is excellent- Even though it is not right on the beach, you can walk out the door and be at the ocean in minutes. We really enjoyed walking on the beach, especially while watching the sun rise and set. Randy was very friendly and easy to work with, which made our stay that much better. While the condo is not huge, space is used efficiently to create spacious feeling. I have already recommended this property to a few friends and relatives, and will continue to do so!
We are directly across the street from the beach with a safe crossing with walk/don't walk light. When you walk out the front door of the condo you will be standing on the beach in 3 minutes. The condo is 600 sq ft and will sleep 6. We cater probably best for the small family, couples, honeymooners and individuals.
This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we loved it. The condo was so clean and very attractive. Randy was nice to work with and anything we could have wanted was provided. This location is perfect. A short walk across the street to the beautiful beach and walking distance to several resturants. It was only a short drive to the park and golf course
We appreciate this couple for driving so far to spend a week here in Gulf Shores. We realize everyone is counting on their accommodations meeting their expectations when they get here so we're always thrilled when guests have a great time. We always try to give more than people expect.
I spent 7 wonderful days in this great condo. Choosing this condo was one of the best decisions I made. It is very clean, well kept, and stocked with all the things anyone would need to have a great vacation. It is right across the street from the beach with an easy access street crossing and great parking under the unit. There are 3 grocery stores within about 3 miles plus the Tanger Outlets for a huge variety of shopping. One of my favorite places to eat is the Shrimp Basket and one is just blocks from the condo and just down the street from the beach...does it get any better?! From now on when I plan to visit Gulf Shores this condo will be at the top of my list of places to stay. Thanks for offering a great place Randy I look forward to staying again.
We had a great time and the condo was perfect! When we walked in, I knew we had made the right decison to stay at your condo. It was beautifully decorated and everything was so clean. Having two T.V.'s was great, my Dad watched the Auburn/Alabama game and my Mom and I watched home decorating shows as we shared coffee and looked out the sliding glass patio we could see the ocean. It was better than I had imagined and the price was very reasonable. We will definately be staying there again! Thanks you again for sharing your condo with us!
I am a recently retired elementary school principal and to say time away has been a luxury would be a vast understatement! I came across your property while searching for fall rates to just get away. As soon as I found your unit I booked it for the entire last week of October! I stayed from Sunday until Thursday night by myself at your condo! The weather was beautiful, as was the beach. I can not remember the last time I spent this much stress free time just sitting on the beach relaxing and soaking up the sun. My husband joined me Thursday night and my daughter and her boyfriend came down on Friday. With the two queen beds and the convertible sofa we had plenty of room. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to restaurants, the beach, and shopping. It is the most convenient place I have ever rented. The unit was exactly as shown in the pictures, perhaps even nicer and had to be the CLEANEST condo we have ever stayed in. Everything we needed for the kitchen was there and plenty of linens were provided. The owner was easy to contact and provided easy rental service. I would recommend this condo to any friend or relative. It is a great place for a couple's getaway, a family vacation, or a girl's weekend. I am saving my deposit refund to reserve a late fall week again in 2011! Thank you Randy for sharing your little piece of home away from home with me!
We have never been in a unit across the street from the beach before.This is a great place to stay your just a few steps from the beach, and just 3 block from the hangout(Shrimp Fest). We had a great time and the weather was so good for us mid to upper 80's in Oct WOW!! The water was clear as I have ever seen. The unit meet's all your need's for a trip to the beach but what are your need's suntan oil and a cooler. I would love to be there right now taking a early morning walk on the beach with the wife. We thank you for having everything we needed for the beach and would love to do it again real soon. Mike & Debra Higgins
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.
Great condo for a perfect vacation. The property is super clean and neat, very well maintained. Very close to everthing in the area. Since we love to cook at home the kitchen was great everything you need plus. I had researched a lot of properties and kept coming back to Gentle Winds as the place to stay. The owners made you feel very comfortable and welcome. We have recommended this property to all who have asked about our trip. We spent some time walking on the beach, time spent sitting on the balcony and enjoying the evenings, also we were aquainting ourselves with the area as we will spend more time here when the snow flies up north. When we are in Gulf Shores we will defnitely stay at Gentle Winds if possible.
We love it when families want to come back.
The condo was an excellent getaway at a very convenient location. The condo is walking distance from the beach, souvi shops, and restaurants. The owners do the "little" things well b/c the condo was very clean, neat, organized and well stocked with towels, "fluffed" pillows, cooking supplies, books, and cable! The couches, beds, and the glider are so comfortable! The owners were extremely helpful, kind, generous, and organized. My wife and I actually droved to the Gulf State Park (about 2 miles) and ran on the paved trails which is obviously near this condo! We had a wonderful visit and will be recommending this condo to our friends!
Our rental guests actually introduced me to the paved running and cycling trails in Gulf State Park. There are a total of 11 miles with various loops.
We were visiting Gulf Shores for the Jimmy Buffett concert on the beach. Randy was very accommodating and the condo was 3 blocks from the venue. It was perfect! Great unit, with plenty of room for the 2 of us. And a Waffle House right next door! I hope you like the smell of bacon (not in the unit, but outside)! The condo was furnished nicely and very cozy. Would definitely go back to Gulf Shores and this nice condo any time! Thanks!
This was a clean, comfortable, well-equipped and convenient condo, at a very good price. Although it is across the street from the beach, the short walk to the beach is very easy and quick. The short trip to Wal-Mart is handy for supplies (take the "back" way through the state park to save time when the main drag is busy). The owners are very friendly and helpful, and take a lot of pride in their property. We enjoyed Lulu's Restaurant, as well as Lamberts in Foley. We will certainly plan to stay here again in the future. It was a very enjoyable stay for us.
The condo was perfect. It had everything we needed. Great value for the place and location. Very clean and comfortable. In the past I have spent far more for much less. We will plan on staying in this condo every time we go to Gulf Shores. Randy's description was dead on. I have already recommended this condo to several friends. Within 100 yards and you're on the sand. The beach was great. The area was safe. Never had to worry about the kids. Hope to be back late summer.
We were so proud to have this family. Father is a soldier and will be deploying again later this year. Dad told me that this is the place he wants his family to vacation whether he is with them or overseas.
This condo was a great deal for me and my family. There was plenty of sleeping room for everyone. The condo was very, very clean. (I greatly appreciated that!) The condo had everything you could possibly need for your visit. We were also close to everything and anything. i would recomend this condo to anyone that wants to have the comforts of home close to the beach.
We appreciate these guests so much!
We very much enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was VERY clean and quiet and nicely decorated. Just walk across the street and we were at the beach with the beautiful sugar white sands! The owners have also thought of everything. Every timw we thought of something we needed that we forgot at home, they already had it for us at the condo! Great location as well with quick access to many groceries, restaurants, and gift shops. Highly recommended! Eric, Cheryl, Bryce & Ian
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!
My husband & I stayed the first week of March 2010. Randy was very helpful from the minute I inquired about his condo. Always quick to respond with suggestions & recommendations, he never failed us! When we arrived at his condo it was in very good condition, nicely decorated & most importantly, very clean. You can't beat his rates either, very reasonable for what you are given. Even the week of our stay, Randy was very responsive to our needs. Thank you for all of your help, it was much appreciated! We would like to get back to Gulf Shores one day, hopefully when the weather is better! To anyone visiting, make sure to visit the zoo. It was wonderful! Thank you again, Lisa & Mark Joliet, IL
We appreciated Lisa & Mark. They came so far and the weather didn't cooperate. Unfortunately that was out of my control. My wife & I work hard to make sure that each family that comes have a first class condominium and received more than their money's worth. We are clean freaks and clean our own places so you know that it will be immaculate when you arrive.
We really enjoyed our stay at this charming, tastefully decorated condo. The location is unbeatable - only a short walk to the beach and close to all the Gulf Shores attractions. The bathroom is large and spotless - and the kitchen if fully stocked to prepare any home-cooked meal. The owners were very friendly and accomodating. Would be happy to stay there again.
This family called at the last minute to make a Christmas reservation and we were happy to make it happen on short notice. We try to make it that you only need to bring clothes and your food while staying.
The condo was found in very good clean condition upon arrival and the stay was great! Bed was comfortable and everything is there as stated in the description. We didn't have to take anything with us except of course the normal items (beach chairs and such). Was also nice to be able to literally step next door to have breakfast or a quick lunch without even having to get in the car. Beach area was only a few minutes walk across the street and down to the beach. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach is a favorite of mine to visit and the condo was located close to everything. We didn't have any issues while staying at the condo at all. was very adequate for two people with room to spare. Overall was quite and peaceful. Larry Charlotte, NC
Super clean condo, within walking distance to a few resteraunts and shops. Convenient location to the main drag for driving to various activities. Directly across the street from a nice clean beach. Great Value, you will not find a nicer, cleaner condo for less money. Would definitely stay there again. Randy was great to work with and made our trip a great one. Thanks Again Erick & Ashley Louisville, KY
We spent a week at the property. Its very well taken care of, and newly remodled in most rooms,would be great for a couple or small family thats on a budget. Not the newest or most luxurious place to stay but a great find for the price. Great location and was worth an almost $300 savings to walk across the street to the beach. Close to everything Gulf Shores has to offer. Owners take care of property and condo was very clean. The old addage of dont judge a book by its cover definetly applies here, the building is an older building among all new sky rise condos but is a diamond in the rough. We really wanted to take a vacation this year but like most families thought that on our budget it wouldnt be possible I searched and searched and found this property. With out the great price a vacation at the beach wouldnt have been possible. Would def stay again. The only possible negatives that i would see is the tile in the bathroom, it was clean but just outdated and needed to be replaced and there was only coin laundry and no pool, but if you can live with out those amenities for a week or so and for the savings its worth it..
We appreciate that not only they chose our condo but how thorough they were with their comments. We have met a need in providing an affordable, clean, up-to-date condo that allows folks to make a beach vacation possible. New split brick flooring was put in the bathroom in 2005 replacing tile. At a rental rate that is 1/3 to 1/2 the price of most condos we are thrilled with the responses we have had from so many that have stayed.
My family just completed our third trip to this unit. We have come to feel like it is our second home. It is cozy, clean, and just the right size for us. This condo is meticulously maintained and after 3 years, it looks new every time we arrive. The owners are very proud of their unit and spend much time making sure they give you the most for your money. I have searched countless hours for a better deal compatible with the classiness of this unit. I gave up. There isn't one.
We appreciate Jayson and the others who have become repeat visitors. What people think when they leave is very important to us and we don't take anyone for granted.
Great location with a couple of eateries within walking diastance like Hooters and Waffle House. The beach is right across the street and if you need any beach supplies the Sand and Surf store is right next door. The condo is loaded with everything you need for a home away from home.
We do have a Hooter's and Waffle House close by and we have a number of lunch and supper restaurants within walking distance. You can find anything from sandwiches to the best steaks and seafood all within walking. Oh, and dessert type foods too.
Our family really enjoyed our week at the condo. It was extremely clean and was exactly as described to us. The kitchen was stocked well with plenty of dishes, baking dishes/pans and utensils. The owner was very nice and answered all of our questions quickly and honestly. We will definately stay here again!
This cute affordable little condo was just as presented in the description. Everything was comfortable and very well maintained. Randy was easy to work with and contact was always immediate. There is easy access to the beach and easy walking distance to local restaurants and shops. Kids and adults of all ages will enjoy The Hangout located at 182 and 59 as you come into Gulf Shores (you can walk from the condo via the street or if you prefer, take the scenic route of the beach!) Very reasonable, casual dining at Sea N Suds just across the street. Great eats at a little place called Bahama Bobs, just a little west of 59 on 182, which also has beach side dinning (this requires the car). And you can top off your night with ice cream at Bruster’s, just a short walk down from the condo, the same side of the street. The next visit back to Gulf Shore’s will include contacting Randy for another stay. .
Start my review by stating we would DEFINITELY come back and rent the Condo. Everything was as stated,very clean,well maintained, Perfect location to get to the beach, restaurants, and places of entertainment. Would recommend to anyone looking to rent. If you love the beach,walk across the street and your there. Shopping you have many places to visit, Tons of good restaurants, recommend LuLu's as one you should definetly visit.If you have Children, plenty of places for them,The track,waterville etc. End my review by stating, we plan on renting this condo next year also. Bob & Tina Shelby Township, Michigan
The purpose for coming to Gulf Shores was to relax and to do some golfing. Other than the rain provided by mother nature on Friday, we accomplished our golfing goal. Having not been to the area before, we were looking for a place to stay near the beach that was affordable. The condo was perfect for our needs. The location is excellent as far as traveling to different cities and golf courses in the area. It is immaculately kept with well appointed decor. The customer service provided by Randy is top notch as he greatly cares about keeping the property well-maintained and providing you with information in regards to the area. We enjoyed the food at various restaurants (in particular, Lulu's) and local musicians that had been recommended to us by some friends in the area. I highly recommend staying at the condo and look forward to a return trip to Gulf Shores.
My family and I stayed in this condo during our spring break and it could not have been better. The location of the condo is perfect for the cost consciuos traveler. You are across the street from the beach with a very nice view of the waves but you don't have to pay the premium beach prices. The condo is very well kept and clean and the owners are great to work with. Randy and Lisa provided us with all kinds of information about the Gulf Shores area and their recommendations of activites and restaurants were right on target. They even gave us tips on rainy day activities in case of bad weather. The condo had everything that we could have asked for and much more. As a family of five I was a little worried about the size of the condo but we had plenty of room and all the ammenities that we needed. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking to be close to the beach, restaurants and shopping in Gulf Shores but not willing to pay the "big prices" for a high rise beach front condo. You will not be disappointed.
My family and I just completed our second, week long stay at this condo, and as before, it was terrific! The owner's hospitality is incomparable and the condo itself is extremely comfortable, spacious and affordable! We could'nt have picked a better place in Gulf Shores to build our memories! We always have a great time here, and plan on coming back for many years to come!
We spent a week in mid-March at this condo. I have nothing but fantastic things to say. This was like having a home away from home. It had absolutely everything you would ever need. This condo was impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. It was even better than the description. The location is perfect for beach lovers and the patio door in the living room had a wonderful view of the main road in Gulf Shores. Randy and Lisa were wonderful to work with and the next time I am in Gulf Shores they will be the first to hear from me. I would absolutely recommend this condo. You will not regret staying here. Quiet location, short walking distance to delicious restaurants, beautifully decorated condo with everything you could need during your stay. I cannot say enough positive things. I am so happy I chose to stay here and it made my vacation that much better!
This was such a relaxing vacation. The condo was perfect for what we were looking for and very clean. I couldn't say enough good things about the owners because they were so helpful and pleasant about everything. I would definitely bring my friends and I back to this location anytime.
Great place to stay with reasonable prices. Short walk to the beach was good. Plenty of shopping and things to do when it rains. The condo was great for the two of us. Enjoyed our stay and working with Randy was very good.
Our condo is directly across the street from the beach. We have deeded access to the beach. You are on the beach in 3 minutes out the front door.
This was our first visit to Gulf Shores and we had a wonderful time. The accomodations where great. We were most impressed with all the small touches like a kitchen that has everything. There was tupperware, everything you needed to cook with, toaster, blender and even a cooler to take to the beach. We loved the balcony and the walk to the beach was a breeze. The condo was decorated with an ocean theme and there was a beautiful picture of dolphins in the back bedroom that we loved. We had a great time and we are already planning another trip back. We will be sure to stay in the same place.
This property - and its owners - are both just delightful. Not only did my family and I enjoy a WONDERFUL (and affordable!) stay in a clean, bright, cozy and comfortable condo just a short stroll from the beach, but I personally have had the added pleasure of getting to know the owner, Randy, who I'd never met prior to this. He and his wife are dedicated to making sure your stay is enjoyable and smooth sailing. We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. Randy couldn't have been more accommodating or more gracious. My only concern now is that this place will continue to become so well-liked by others I may have trouble finding an open slot for our next trip to Gulf Shores! Thanks, Randy, for a great stay!!!
We stayed at gentle winds the week of 7/14/08 and the Moris family was wonderful to deal with. All of our questions were answered promptly and it made getting things lined out for our vacation go very smooth. The condo was very clean and better decorated than any we have ever stayed in. We really liked the convenience of being so close to everything. Great place to stay in Gulf Shores!!
Our time at Gulf Winds was incredible. The location and distance from the beach was perfect for the price. It felt like we were directly on the coast. The condo felt like home, having every amenity, comfort, dish, pan, spice and cleaning supply of home. We will definitely visit Gentle Winds again. The owners were a pleasure to deal with, no surprises or hidden anythings. It was great not to deal with a middle man and have the unit keys in hand upon our arrival. They answered questions and comments promptly and really want you to have a wonderful vacation while staying in their condo. Highly recommend.
My wife and two children recently spent three days at the Gentle Winds Resort, I cant say enough, this was an excellent choice. The kitchen had everything and I mean everything you could ever need. The only thing you will need to bring with you is your food. The whole condo was awesome and very spacious. also a wonderful family atmosphere. The beach is just a few steps away, and if you dont want to worry about doing your laundry when you get home, you can do it all there at the condo, there is a very nice laundry facility there. I would truly recommend this condo for anyone, in fact when i got back to work i told several of my co-workers and they are going to contact the Moris' one final note, all the transactions with the moris' is on time and very quick returns, in fact the same day in most cases.
My mom, grandson, and I recently spent several nights at the Moris' condo at Gulf Shores. This is a cute, cozy place to stay, just across the street from the beach, and the price is great too!! The kitchen is furnished with just about anything you'd possibly need. I enjoyed having some plastic plates and cups for my child, in addition to the ceramic dinnerware for Mom and I. A nice washroom is located downstairs, and is inexpensive to use. The dryer really works great too!! You have a short walk across the street to the beach, and covered parking to keep your car cool during the hot summer days. The new furniture (loveseat, sofa, and ottoman) are very nice and really comfy. In case of a rainy day at the beach, pop a DVD in the player (bring your own), pop up some corn (add some M & M's too!) and relax for a bit. When the sun comes out again, head back over to the beach. Take a good beach read, relax, and be thankful the Moris' have shared their wonderful condo with you at a mite of what those across the street are paying. Enjoy! We'll be returning sometime in the future, hands down!
We couldn't have asked for a cleaner and nicer condo. Being right across from the beach was great as well. The location was great. There were many restaurants that were in walking distance from the condo. Randy Morris was extremely helpful with everything! We plan on staying here during our future trips to Gulf Shores.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our week at your condo and would recommend it highly to anyone considering a trip to Gulf Shores. It had nice access to the beach and was also very close to restuarants and shopping. We look forward to our next stay - it was nice to get away from the brutal weather we've had in Wisconsin this past winter!
From One Snowbird to Another: Gentle Winds in Gulf Shores,Alabama is a great place to spend the winter months. We were so pleased with the location of the condo. We had a wonderful view of the ocean with white sandy beaches. Everything we needed was so close, like shopping centers, restaurants and churches. The condo was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to enjoy our two and one half months stay. Try it, you'll love it
What more can we say other than this condo really made our vacation wonderful! It allowed us terrific access to the gulf, which really satisfied our daughter. It was furnished very nicely, clean and absolutely affordable. The owner's were very hospitable, and went above and beyond in making sure we were aware of things to do and places to go in the area. We are definitely going back to Gentle Winds next year!
What a wonderful time I had staying here!!! I took a vacation by myself for the forst time ever and this was a little Heaven on earth for me. Very easy access to the beach and to see the water! I will be returning! Thank you very much for providing such a sweet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city! I highly recommend staying here! I was very comfortable and could have stayed an extra week! Again, THANK YOU! See ya next year!
I just wanted to drop and note and tell you how much we enjoyed the stay in your condo. What a blessing it was relax and spend time at Gulf Shores. I would not hesitate to come back again. The condo is well equipped and beautifully decorated. God bless you and thanks again for your hospitality.
Best place to stay in Gulf Shores without a doubt! Condo had everything you would need, even down to a pizza cutter. It was our first visit to Gulf Shores and we felt at home in this cozy condo right away. Randy was so pleasant to work with and answered every question we had. Such a great price for this condo. Don't go anywhere else. Thanks Randy for such a memorable vacation. We miss it already and can't wait to come back!
We were so thrilled to find such a clean and home like place to stay. It is so convenient for anything you would need. The price is wonderful especially for the great service you receive. Randy was so thorough in answering every question we had and very prompt! Thanks a bunch! We will DEFINITELY be back!!!
I took my daughter and mom to Gulf Shores for a girls get-a-way, and we felt very lucky to have found the Morris' place on-line. It was very clean, very well kept and convenient to the beach, stores and everything else we wanted to do. Also, Randy was extremely helpful on places to go for fun and out to eat. There isn't one negative I could say about the place, and we will definitely stay there on our next visit to Gulf Shores. I highly recommend it.
My stay in Gulf Shores was very relaxing- I enjoyed the convenience of beach access and local shopping and restaurants. It was a beautiful week too, which added to the stay-the accomodations were excellent; very comfortable and nice. Mr. Moris was prompt in emailing me and sending needed information. I plan to return next summer!
If your looking for a place to stay in Gulf Shores- Look no more -This is the best place to stay in. The condo is so nice and clean. Great location anything you need is within walking distance. Randy was so nice and helpful.My family cant wait to go back and I know we will be staying at Gentle Winds!!!
Without a doubt this is the best place to stay in Gulf Shores! The condo is very spacious, clean and centrally located. Other family members of mine stayed in different condos in GS. After seeing Gentle Winds, they were jealous! Now they have decided to stay there on their future vacations. AND they paid substantially more than I did. The Owners..Randy and Lisa Morris were extremely helpful with all of my questions (never been to GS before this vacation). They answered all of my emails promptly and gave me a lot of useful advice about the area. They feel like family. Anyway, I didnt mean to ramble here, but I cannot say enough about this wonderful condo! If you luck out and find this in your search for a place to stay...RENT IT NOW!!!!
