About Melissa Gabriel

This has been a fun, family project for us. We purchased the unit in December of 2013 and did major renovation work through the late spring of 2014. We love Pensacola Beach and have enjoyed being a part of the vacation experience for all of our guests.

If you are a returning guest, please let us know and you will not need to pay the $79 damage insurance.

Melissa Gabriel purchased this condo in 2013

Why Melissa Gabriel chose Pensacola Beach

We like the Gulf-front location, especially the wide back balcony that allows you to feel that you are right on the beach all the time. The place has a relaxed and laid-back feel and is great for a relaxing getaway. Gulf Winds is a small complex, which allows guests to avoid some of the chaos of staying in large condo building during the busiest summer months.

What makes this condo unique

The decor is fresh and fun for anyone who rents this property. Features include a king bed in master, , tile throughout and flat screen TVs throughout, blueray player with Netflix and collection of DVDs, wifi access, grill on the balcony and a collection of beach items for renters to use.

Located about a mile from the gate to Gulf Islands National Seashore and historic Fort Pickens. Within walking distance of Peg Leg Pete's Oyster Bar. This is an 18-unit, Gulf-front, building that is away from the main hubbub of the Pensacola Beach but close enough to enjoy all the beach shopping, restaurants and other attractions. Perfect for beach combing and evenings watching fantastic sunsets. Within walking distance of Bands on Beach performances throughout the summer and spring. Also, within walking or bicycling distance of the Pensacola Beach fishing pier.

Pensacola Naval Air Station and the National Museum of Naval Aviation are about a 20-minute drive across town.

Location, Nice Condo, Pool

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with the condo on Pensacola Beach during the week of Sept. 18-23, 2017. The condo was very clean and had everything in it that we possibly could have needed. The mattress in the large bedroom which was the King was a little too hard for our liking and the Queen mattress was pretty soft and made you roll toward the middle. But besides that the bedrooms were great. The view was wonderful of the Gulf of Mexico from our back balcony and a quick walk to the beach from our condo. Location was great to the main hub of eating establishments, shopping and the main pier. We did notice there was some black mold in the pool that might need to be addressed. We would stay at this location again.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect family stay at this great two bedroom right on the beach. The property is fantastic--well appointed kitchen (all the utensils, pans, accessories you will need), tons of bath and beach towels, and the outside storage area has chairs, toys, nets, etc so no need to bring your own.

This stretch of beach isn't very crowded, which means lots of fish and shells to be had. An easy walk through the gate and you're there. There were sea turtle nests along this part of the beach, and we actually saw a few and helped coax them to the water--incredible experience for the kids. The property has gated access, multiple wash stations for beach returns, and a small pool if the sand gets to you. Most of the other tenants return to this building year-after-year because it has everything. Melissa was available with any issues (we had none) and they have family dvds, Apple TV, and a charcoal grill as extras.

Thank you Melissa for helping our family have a great week, and see you next year.

Right when we walked through the door, my wife and I both said this is awesome! Just like the pics!

  • 5 of 5

Everything described in the listing was spot on. Absolutely loved every second of our stay. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need for a meal. The Grill on the patio worked perfectly. The walk to the beach was super easy and convenient. Other beaches were within short driving distance. The restaurants and bars were easy to get to as well. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary this trip. It was hard to leave such a great place. Bedrooms comfy, bathrooms ideal, and laundry was great to have. The view from the patio was amazing, and having the binoculars handy for bird watching and dolphin watching, was a nice treat to have. Taking a dip in the pool after our morning walks, got our days started off well. Will definitely keep Gulf Winds in mind for future stays!

Great & relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The kids loved the beach & pool. The area where the condo was not crowded on the beach which was great. We did have a hard time finding places to eat that were not 1 & 1/2 - 2 hour wait. Our kids are 6 & 4 and don't do well waiting that long. But we found a few restaurants recommended by locals that helped for dinner. Condo was great & well decorated & felt like home. Thank you for a great stay!

Awesome location, beach views and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is right on the beach and very cozy. Location was everything! It rained a lot when we were here, but that didn't hurt our beach time. We were so close that we just hopped on the beach in a matter of seconds between the rain showers. That makes a world of difference when you don't have to drive to enjoy the beach. We were able to have valuable beach time every day because of our location. We had nightly beach walks looking for ghost crabs and the kids loved it! Publix was a little drive off the beach but they had a large convenient store (Tom thumbs) close by. Pool was a nice bonus when you don't want to worry about the sand and want the water. Many cool kid friendly restaurants with great entertainment, drinks and views. Flounders was our favorite with a playground for the kids while we were waiting on our meal. Would stay again over and over. Awesome views (bay and pool views from kitchen and beach view from living room and bedroom) and awesome (big) wrap around deck. Best vacation yet for us! Thank you!!!!
