Brett/Robinson Gulf Corp
the condo was really good. The pictures make it seem bigger, pretty common, but had all that was promised. The bed was broken, and they fixed it right away. One elevator was out of order our entire stay, this was challenging.
It was wonderful, even with the challenges.
Lack of parking - second vehicle had to be parked down the road in public parking.
Even thought it does say on the reservation confirmation In the small print about Holidays & peak season parking, it should be made very clear before you book that you can only have one vehicle. While you can clearly tell that the condo owners take pride and have made many upgrades, it is still an older building and there are maintenance items. We could not get in the main door - the attendant had to come and literally force the door open - then when we left it wouldn’t latch. This was resolved while we were there. However, the next item was the folding door to the washer/dryer did was messed up and didn’t want to open or close - my husband finally just took it down. The light/ceiling fan in the main living area has a short or something and wouldn’t come on at all for the first couple of days. It finally came on,but sporadically. The kitchen and condo were well equipped. It was a lot smaller than it looked in the pictures. If you are planning to do very much cooking for more than two people, the kitchen does not have a lot of room. Also, there were no potholders or dishcloths I’m the kitchen at all. The large flat screen TVs were nice and it is very clear that the owners have done a lot of upgrades. Overall, we did enjoy our stay & made do with the maintenance items. However, we would not return due to the Parking situation. It should be made very clear that you have to park a second vehicle down the road in public parking and either shuttle with someone or walk back and forth to your vehicle. This condo would be perfect for a couple traveling alone with one vehicle. The management company staff were not the friendliest. It was like we were bothering them and were very rude anytime we had questions.
Very nice property in great location
Within walking distance to the Hangout, countless other restaurants, convenient store and souvenir stores. The unit itself was tastefully decorated with a large TV. Very clean. The staff was extremely helpful. We drove, less than 5 minutes, to Waterville and road all the go-carts. The water attractions were closed for the season. LuLu's was a great place to eat right on the Marina.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are thrilled you and your family enjoyed yourself. Please tell your friends and come back and see us again.
Nice property but smaller than expected!!
This property is nothing fancy but it was clean. Our 2 bedroom unit was a lot smaller than it looked in the photos. The people working at the property were very friendly and helpful.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. Island Winds East offers a perfect location within walking distance of all the Gulf Shores activities. We look forward to seeing you back again.
Incredible views + modern upgrades
From the beautiful views off the balcony, to the automated window shades, to the fully stocked kitchen, this condo had everything we needed for a relaxing getaway. We didn't want to eat out for every meal, so having such a beautiful kitchen made cooking a breeze. Additionally, the condo is located in a fabulous location, so once we parked we were essentially able to walk to wherever we wanted to go. Gulf Shores has a ton to do, and the unit is in such a great location that we were really able to take advantage of that. I don't think all of the other activities beat the beauty of the beach, though, which you could easily enjoy sitting on the balcony. Such a great trip; I would definitely come back to this unit.
Sydney: Thank you for the beautiful description and review of our condo. We think it is pretty special too. Great condo + great view + great location = GREAT vacation. Come back soon!
Awesome condo in a central location
Our stay was over memorial day weekend and everything worked out so great. The condo is beautifully decorated, there is a fully operable kitchen, all the beds are plush and comfortable with plenty of pillows, there are three huge TVs, and also an umbrella available for beaching. The shore is right outside the condo, only about a 3 minute walk away. Other than the condo itself the place is very centrally located, one can walk to close by restaurants (The Hangout is awesome - free concerts!), souvenir stores, ice cream shops, etc. If you drive just a tiny bit of ways there's go-karting, zip lining, and tanger outlet shopping very close by as well - and the water park Waterville too, if the beach isn't enough :)
Jennifer: We are happy you enjoyed yourself here. I am sure the memories that you made ..beach, Hang Out, go carting, zip lining and incredible shopping bargains at the Tanger Outlet Mall will last forever. Please come back and see us again!
