Now that you have found us,...take a look! We wanted to give our condo an intimate feel in decorating it. Sometimes the vacation is all about doing a lot of things but sometimes it is about slowing it down and relaxing. We’ve tried to create an atmosphere in our place that would give you that comfortable and peaceful feeling. Everything was done to make this a vacation to remember.
Our complex is located directly across the street from the beach. No long walks. We walk safely over with a traffic light right on our corner and you are standing on the beach in 3 minutes after walking out the front door. Gentle Winds is close to everything. You will be able to walk to restaurants and shops. The public beach area is only 3/8ths of a mile away to visit The Hangout or other popular places down there.
We have used our experience in having five condos in making your vacation a great memory. Our goal is to have you come back over and over again. Thank you for considering our condo and any of our other places too.

VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
Please leave the keys on Key Holder by Front Door upon departure.

4028 Meadow Run Drive
Mobile, AL 36619
If you should lose a key you can get one made at Wal-Mart or Ace Hardware in Gulf Shores or at Lowe’s or Home Depot in Foley. Please do not put unit number or condo name on keys.
I can be reached at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if you run into difficulties.
We work hard to keep our furniture looking clean and new. Please be reminded to use a towel to cover these items before being seated if you have suntan oil or self-tanning products, as this will stain the fabric.
As you will see, we take very good care of our condo and we expect you to treat our unit with the same respect as you would your own home. Please help us continue to provide these lower rental prices and an up-to-date, clean condo by preventing excessive wear and tear.
Our condo is non-smoking and pets are not allowed. If the condo smells of smoke for the next guest, deposit will not be refunded.
We have wireless internet in our condo. See Network Names & Passwords on Refrigerator. There are several Networks you can us in our condo.
Upon arrival, check the condo for any apparent damage and report it right away to us. If there seems to be excessive dirt on the furniture, a portion of the previous guests’ deposit will be used for cleaning.
Feet tend to get very dirty when walking barefoot in the halls and parking lot. There is a shower head and spigot on the right side of the building by the stairs to use prior to coming upstairs. Be sure and wipe feet thoroughly when entering the condo. We want to provide a well kept and clean unit for you and future guests as well.
Reminders: Please do not run the air conditioner if you choose to open the door to the balcony and leave it open. This could burn out the unit and would prove to be very expensive for us to replace as well as making the rest of your vacation very HOT! We also ask that children not be allowed to jump on the sleeper sofa or beds. Popsicles, Kool-Aid and grape juice will stain the furniture so we must ask that your family refrain from bringing these types of items into the condo. If it happens that the furniture is soiled or spilled on please wipe up the spills or dirt just as if it was your own home.
Please report and appliance (stove, fridge, microwave, water heater, AC) or electrical equipment (TV, DVD, clock) or plumbing (toilet, sink, bathtub, dishwasher) that you find to be malfunctioning as soon as possible so we can get it replaced or fixed.
The access to the beach is directly across the street. Use the traffic light to cross and walk straight through between the 2 buildings between their pools. This is our deeded access to go on the beach. You can also go through their parking deck and use their boardwalk where the grills and showers are.
There is a coin-operated laundry downstairs. Keys are hanging up by refrigerator
Please help us with utilities. Keeping thermostat at 70 degrees or higher in summer helps us to keep our rental rates down.
How to get to us. Go to the end of Hwy 59S. Where you have to turn left or right at the end of Hwy 59 turn left. Go 4/10ths of mile and we are on the left side. Our parking is in the rear and the stall is the 2nd stall on the left and is marked B7.
These are items we take along when we go to the beach:
The kitchen is equipped with all the items you will need We provide a hand towel and dish cloth, but we always use more. We have provided some of the very basic cleaning materials such as dishwasher powder, dish detergent, but we recommend that you check under the sink to see if there is sufficient quantity. You will need some 13 gallon trash bags, paper towels, air freshener spray, laundry detergent (laundry facilities are on the ground floor) and extra toilet paper. You may want to bring extra bath towels if you use them only once. We provide 8 bath towels and 8 wash cloths and 4 hand towels. You will need a small cooler to take drinks over to the beach, an umbrella (this is one of the most important things we take to prevent sunburn and to be able to stay on the beach long after others leave) fold-up beach chairs and plenty of beach towels, meat tenderizer and alcohol in case of a jellyfish sting (hope there aren’t any), Sunblock and Aloe after suntan lotion, sunglasses, hats, goggles and snorkel gear. A small net to catch fish is fun for kids. Flashlight for night beach walks (we love the dusk walks), coozies to keep drinks cold, kites and Frisbees for great fun on the beach. Boogie boards are about $10 and will keep kids occupied for hours. Gentle Winds is right next to a Surf Style store and many of the beach related items are right there if you forget to bring them.
A Super Wal-Mart is also about 1 mile away for your beach items and grocery needs. There are amusement parks, a water park, beachfront restaurants and many family attractions within a couple of minutes. Motor scooter rentals, bikes, parasailing and jetski rentals are right on the beach. The streets have wide bike and pedestrian lanes allowing you to walk right from the condo down to restaurants and stores in just a few minutes.
1. Please turn the A/C to 73 in Spring & Summer when you are departing your last day. Turn A/C to 76 in Fall upon departure.

Things you might like to know, . . .
Where to get a newspaper: Across the street at the Boardwalk or SeaWind
Where is Walmart: At Hwy 180/Fort Morgan Road. About 1 ½ miles from condo
What is our favorite restaurant: Lulu’s Marina. It is by the tall bridge that comes into Gulf Shores. You get there from the north side of the bridge. Live music, Good food, Good prices
Best restaurant with children: Lambert’s Café in Foley. You will be entertained. I promise.
You are at the beach but don’t forget Gulf State Park/Lake Shelby. The condo is only about 2 miles from there. New 1500’ long pier is ¾ mile from condo. Good fishing or sightseeing.
We have wireless internet in our condo. See Network Names & Password on Refrigerator.
Outlet shopping in Foley is only 8 miles north of Gulf Shores. Actually the highway is loaded with outlet type stores on each side in Foley and just south of Foley. Good night time activity.
Plenty of things to spend all your money on to entertain kids at night. Be sure to look for things like coupon books at stores and restaurants to save money on things like miniature golf, water park, go-carts, zoo, etc. Don’t forget to visit zoo with your children. Do zoo on cloudy day.
We have many, many golf courses in the area. Most of them are championship caliber.
Gulf Shores has their city recreation facilities just as you come into town. You can pay a small daily fee to use their workout rooms. Very modern and clean.
The Post Office and Library are also on the right as you enter Gulf Shores. The library has PC’s available to use.
There is church on the beach during the summer at 7:30 AM every Sunday. Go 2 ½ miles east from our condo to the Orange Beach public beach. It is a large parking lot and you go to the far end boardwalk. It is interdenominational and lasts 50 minutes.
Now, don’t tell anyone I told you this but there are some places you can go swim. I use The Lighthouse’s pools (they have 2). Enter from the beach side to their pools. No security guards or bracelets. You didn’t hear this from me. Many of the condo owners in our complex are accomplished pool hoppers. They know all the good places to go.
We don’t drink so I don’t know the good clubs. You’ll have to find them on your own. Maybe you’ll be too tired at the end of the day to find any!
