Nicely maintained condo
The nside of property is really very nice. Loved the patio and able to hear waves with patio door open when inside condo. Only issue was faucets in master bathroom were hard to turn on/off/dripping and the inside shower liner could probably be replaced, as showing signs of wear on bottom of liner. The only other problem was that the morning of our departure it appeared the code to outside door was deactivated prior to checkout. Luckily, my daughter was still inside condo after I returned from taking suitcases to car or I would have been unable to get back in. Overall, however, the property was very nice and upgrades to kitchen, bathrooms and flooring very nice and you cannot beat the location. Thank you for the nice week.
Yes, we are excited to announce that we are already planning for the master bath upgrade in March, 2020 to remove the shower and replace it with tile, new glass doors and new faucets! We are not exactly sure what could have happened with the access code; but will definitely check into it and make sure it wasn't something that we did incorrectly on our end. We include our personal cell phone number in each check in information so that we can be reached in case of an incident such as this one. We do apologize and we definitely won't have let you get locked out as we would have issued you another code to re-enter. Thank you, again ,for choosing Island Winds West!
Condo was beautiful and in a great location with shopping and great restaurants within walking distance. Property owners were awesome. Renovations were being done to outside of the building and it was very loud at times. But we were there in the off season and didn’t hang out in the condo very much anyway. I would definitely stay again.
Much needed Vacation
We enjoyed our stay were much. I was a little disappointed when returned on Thursday afternoon to find they had just repaved the front and back parking lot and left no area to walk back to the building, also I rent on the beach for the view and enjoy sitting on the balancy but the smell of the tar was very bad the last few days .
We are so, so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Island Winds West! We truly are sorry about the repaving of the parking lot. We don't think we were aware that was planned during your vacation or we would definitely have addressed that with you prior to your arrival.
The property was great and great location! Don’t let the outside looks intimidate, it is very nice on the inside. We are very picky when it comes to cleanliness and this was one of the cleanest place we have stayed. The location was walking distance to a lot of places and the beach is less than 100 yards from the back door. There wasn’t one item that we needed that wasn’t at our disposal. We did add to some stuff in the beach supply’s closet, enjoy! We will be staying here again the next time we head to Gulf Shores.
Thank you so much, Mark! We have learned in our recent HOA meeting that there are upgrades to the property in the near future! Of which, the walkways will be getting fresh paint and the concrete resealed! This will be done in December 2019. Our personal plans for the unit include upgrading both bathrooms in March 2020. We are definitely glad to hear about the cleanliness of the unit! We have a lady that takes pride in her cleaning; but she is very receptive to the not so good as well. Although we haven't been to see the new items in the beach closet, we certainly do appreciate the addition to it and I am certain the future guests will definitely enjoy! Thank you so very much! We look forward to your future arrival at Island Winds West!
Would stay here again
We had a great experience with this condo. This is the 21st year for our annual girls trip. So we have a lot of experience renting condos in the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area.
Rodney and Debbie were great from the beginning. We received easy to follow check-in information prior to our trip. On the day of check-in, Rodney was easy to reach for questions and super helpful.
The unit is beautiful. Tastefully updated, clean, comfortable living room and well-equipped kitchen, The beds were so comfortable and the heavy drapes were appreciated for those of us who wanted to sleep in.
We have stayed in high rises and low-density buildings and we all agreed we liked being on a lower floor. We never had to wait long, if at all, for the elevator.
This location is great for easy access to everything Gulf Shores has to offer. It is also walking distance to Bahama Bob's, one of our favorite spots.
The only thing we would suggest is having a few plastic tumblers to be able to take to the beach and maybe a couple more coffee cups.
We would definitely say that after 21 years for your annual girls trip; you all would have many different experiences with condo rentals. That is fantastic that you all have carried out your tradition year after year. We feel honored that you chose Island Winds West for your 21st annual girls trip together! Thank you, Susan, for your kind words regarding the check in process. We do strive to make it as painless as possible. Our plan is to upgrade the bathrooms in March 2020 and refresh some other items as well. We do like the convenience that Island Winds West has to offer; that is a plus for sure. We sincerely appreciate your recommendations and will purchase plastic tumblers and additional coffee cups for sure. Thank you, again, and we certainly hope to see you all in the future.
My family had a great time on our trip. The condo is exactly as pictured. The building itself is older but the condo had been renovated the floors are nice and it looks like it's been painted recently. The kitchen was nice also. The showers could use an update. The unit could use a deep cleaning the inside of cabinets and drawers were not so clean and some of the dishes didnt seem clean. Kind of a smaller place for 5. No kitchen table, but we just ate at the bar. Overall it was a great condo loved the location and closeness to everything. Loved that it was not so high up. The elevators were always fast. Great stay!
We are so glad to hear that you and your family had a great time on your trip!! Thank you for bringing those items to out attention! We normally do our deep cleaning in March of every year and we will proceed with adding another date for deep cleaning in mid-year as well. We have been in the process of lining up contractors and are updating the bathrooms in March 2020 and have been planning that for quite some time now; but haven't had the availability to get this taken care of during peak season. We, also, plan to refresh other things in the condo in March as well. Thank you, again, Savannah, and we hope that you follow Island Winds West #373 to see what the finished product is for March 2020!
