Great to sit on balcony and watch the ocean. Condo was very nice and had everything we needed in kitchen. Close to restaurants and shops. Nice pool and beach area. Beds were comfy. Had plenty of linens and start up kitchen supplies.

The unit was very nice and updated. It was very clean and comfortable and we would definetly stay again with Island Winds. This is our favorite place to stay because of conveience and exceptional closeness to all resturants and places we like to go and do while we are visiting Gulf shores.

Book way ahead to get a unit. If staying lol Nigeria you may wish to bring extra paper towels, toilet paper, dish soul, and garbage bags, otherwise all you need is provided. Really like the new windows installed last fall

Nice place to stay. Close proximity to Shrimp Fest. Room was adequate. The bed and sofa sleeper were not. For what the room cost I would think the beds would be comfortable. They were not by any stretch of the imagination.

blackj500: Thank you reviewing your recent stay. I will forward your comments regarding the bed to the Property Manager to evaluate. She will also evaluate the sleeper sofa but please know that we recommend sleeper sofas be used by children. We hope the memories you made at Shrimp Fest and the beach will last a long time.
