We all loved the condo itself, but I was told that we would get hotel amenties with our stay. Unfortunatly our entire stay we had to go purchase things that were suppose to be provided. I was very disappointed !

I've always enjoyed staying in their beach front condos. The room we had this time could have stood to be updated but overall we had a relaxing getaway! The rooms were clean and the stay was quiet and pleasant!

Great Location and very reasonable price for the week we chose to travel. The condo was clean and very convenient for me and my family to access restaurants, local stores and the beach. I would recommend for younger families.

The best thing about this property was the view and location near shops and good restaurants within walking distance. Beautiful view of the ocean. Condo in dire need of updating. Old kitchen cabinets and appliances. Smelled pretty musty when we got there. Bedroom faced the outside hall with a very bright hall light right outside. The only thing they had...

The condo was disgustingly dirty upon arrival. It needs a degreasing cleaner on the floors, there was visible mold in the shower and sink faucets. There was a pile of sand in the master bathroom. That said, it was in a good family-friendly location and had a great view. We will not stay here again because of the lack of...

The room was beautiful, with a great view! Everything we needed was close by. Would definitely consider coming back. There were a few things that I thought could be better. There was a chair in there that was pretty dirty on the bottom, (cloth). There was a food spot on one of the doors.Yuck. I felt like there should have...

We visited Gulf Shores in March and stayed at Island Winds East Unit 708 for a week. The building location could not be more convenient. You can walk to the Hangout and many restaurants and shops.

The condo was clean, but a little dated for my taste. It reminded me of the condo I stayed in for spring break in 1994. There was a shelf in the crowded living space full of unnecessary decorations. The main bedroom had a small box tv and the second bedroom did not have a television at all. It had two...
