About Michael Woodhall
My daughter and I moved into this condo unit when she was 2 years old. We lived here for 7 years. I renovated the unit to make it comfortable to live in year round or one week at a time! Everything is new, easy to use, and easy to clean. New AC/heat, new appliances, new washer/dryer. Wall was moved in master bedroom to allow a full size bathroom that two people can use at the same time. Maybe the only such master bathroom in Southwinds. This also added closet space in the master bedroom. I chose Southwinds because it is a family oriented complex and kid friendly. My daughter has made many friends with kids coming down during the summer. She learned to swim in the pool by trying to keep up with the 'big' kids while shunning my advice. Usually there are some kids at the pool or beach to make friends with. However, it never gets too crowded or noisy that you can't relax and have a romantic getaway.
Michael Woodhall purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Michael Woodhall chose Atlantic Beach
Southwinds is at the quiet end of Atlantic Beach near Fort Macon. From the Southwinds beach, to the left is a 200 yard walk to the bath houses at Fort Macon State Park with a full concession. Freezer pops and ice cream are still only 50 cents. Walk a mile further to Beaufort Inlet and Fort Macon - the actual Civil War brick fort that is full of cannons and reenactments. Friday night concerts are held in Fort Macon during the summer. During the day, bunny rabbits run across the front lawn. Sometimes large turtles crawl across the lawn. At night you may see red foxes trot across the Southwinds parking lot, but they are shy and run away quickly. Bring a flash light to the beach at sun down and look for ghost crabs along the edge of the surf. Sea turtles come to the area and lay their eggs during late Spring / early Summer nights and hatch during a full moon in the early Fall. Sea turtle nests are wired off and protected. Volunteers monitor the nests close to hatch time and the public can watch the turtles hatch if you are lucky enough to be there at the right time.
What makes this Condo unique
From Southwinds beach, to the right is a two mile walk to the Oceana Pier, the Atlantic Beach circle and main public beach. Amos Mosquito's Restaurant is only half a mile down the road from Southwinds, with other restaurants just a little further down the road.

Everything about our stay was seamless & The property owner was helpful throughout.
We highly recommend this condo!
Mike made it very easy to access the property and everything was as expected. Lots to do and see while we were there and plenty of places to eat. Pictures of the condo were true as in what you see is what you get. Very nicely decorated. We loved our stay and look forward to going back there to stay on a future vacation

Michaels condo was perfect for our short stay. The location to the beach was amazing even though we didn’t get the chance to enjoy it. I would recommend Michaels place.
Overall, a great week's stay at this condo, clean and as described. Unfortunately we only found out the day before arrival that there was major construction on an adjacent block. However, condo is well insulated so did not impact our stay too much. Best feature is a great beach only a couple of minutes walk.
Love the location!

We loved the area! The condo was clean & roomy with many amenities. Toured Beaufort, Fort Macon, Shackleford Banks & deep sea fishing with Miss Stacey’s charters. Great restaurants nearby. My hubby & I had a great week!
