We are in the heart of Gulf Shores. Easy walking to the stores and restaurants. We are across the street from the beach and about 3 minutes from front door to standing on the beach.
Thank you for spending a few moments looking at our condo. We are located in the heart of Gulf Shores and convenient to everything. Our condo is directly across the street from the beach and once you walk out the front door you are standing on the beach in 4 minutes. It's a great thing to save money on the rental rate and have more left for eating, shopping, playing and sightseeing. You are using the same beach, same restaurants, same stores, same activities as all the folks in the expensive high rise condos. Why not save.
Enjoy the mornings and evenings on our balcony. That first cup of coffee in the morning is soooo good. Especially when you are on vacation and not heading out to work!
The condo is outfitted with nearly everything you will need while you are here. We don't want you to have to bring your whole house down to spend a week. We have wifi internet in the condo so bring your laptop too.
If you like to walk be sure to walk on the beach about 3/4 mile to the new pier in Gulf Shores. It is 1500' long and is quite a sight when you walk out to the end. There is a nominal charge for walking out to the end of the pier and fishing is permitted with a temporary license. If you like to walk or run we have wide walking and bike lanes on Beach Blvd for your safety. You can walk to a number of restaurants that are from 1/10th to 3/8 of a mile from the condo. Shops are close also for walking to.
Other things to note
There are 2 keys in the lock box to use to enter the condo. We have 2 more keys in the kitchen while here. Please put the lock box keys back in the box once inside. They will be emergency keys in case you are locked out.

I can be reached at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) if you run into difficulties.
Please take care of the furniture. 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 strictly non-smoking and pets are not allowed. If the condo smells of smoke for the next guest, deposit will not be refunded.
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. You have keys for this room.
Parking is in an assigned space for B5 in back of complex. Space for 2 cars.
At the end of Hwy 59S in Gulf Shores you turn have to turn right or left. Turn left and go 4/10ths of a mile. We are on the left side. Turn left next to our complex and Surf Style and turn into the backside of Gentle Winds. Our assigned parking is the last space on the far right marked “B5”
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.

Now, don’t tell anyone I told you this but there are some places you can go swim. I use (shhhhh) Boardwalk’s pool and 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!
