Thanks for having a look at our beach front condo located in Tropical Winds Condos, Gulf Shores, AL!
To describe our condo in a few words: :-)
FIRST & FOREMOST - Numerous guests have told us what sets us apart from other owners & rental companies is our communication, & our efforts to make your beach vacation go as smoothly as possible! We'll keep you informed via emails so you won't have to set up any of your own reminders except the travel dates of your vacation! We really do treat our condo like our second home, & we hope you will do the same.
For your convenience, we recently changed your final day's departure time from our condo to 11:00AM CST, (instead of 10:00A CST!!!) We think this extra hour will help to make your final departure from the beach a bit easier!
1 - Our condo is located directly on the beach, not a side view of the Gulf & not across the street! You are only about 60 steps from our condo's door to the gorgeous white Gulf sand & the Gulf of Mexico!!
2 - Our Condo has 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths with fantastic views of the Gulf from our living area, dining area, kitchen, & master bedroom, & it's fully furnished. USB ports are located behind the nightstands in each bedroom to charge your cell phones!
3 - Our condo has keyless entry - you will be able to set your own 3-6 digit code to open our condo's door - no keys to carry around!
4 - Recently we purchased a bright blue counter height table & 4 chairs so you can easily see the Gulf over the railing on our balcony!
5 - We have 3 Smart, flat screen TV's with Blu-Ray DVD players; 1 in the living area & 1 in each bedroom. Also, we have expanded channels including SEC & most are HD! You also can use your Netflix account!
6 -Guests have left books in our nook in the condo's bedroom hallway. Help yourself or leave your favorite for the next guest! There are also family games & kids' DVD's that we purchased or Guests left for others to enjoy located in our TV stand in the living room.
7 - The kitchen, all furniture, & mattresses were recently purchased new, including an upgraded mattress on the sofa bed (which we've slept on, & it's very comfortable!)
8- In July 2019 we purchased a new French door refrigerator that has a filtered, water dispenser on the outside door. It also has a very large ice dispenser in the pull out freezer drawer.
9 - Recently we purchased a new, full size washer & dryer. The dryer even has a steam feature for removing wrinkles! The washer has a 15 minute cycle we think you'll love!!
10 - Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. We also replaced the entire air conditioning/heating system recently. Each year we make upgrades & do renovations to keep our unit as it should be for all our Guests & for us! Our 2017 renovation was turning the master bathroom tub/shower into a walk in shower, (but our 2nd bathroom still has the traditional bathtub.) Our 2018 renovation was removing all the popcorn ceilings & replacing with knockdown ceilings as well as painting the entire condo. Our 2019 renovation was the purchase of a new French door frig with filtered water dispensed from the door & a very large ice bin in the pull out freezer! We also purchased a new full size washer & dryer, & the dryer even has a steam setting to help remove wrinkles, & the washer has a fantastic 15 minute cycle!
11 - We are located on the lowest floor with units, the 2nd floor. So if you don't want to take the elevator to our condo, you can walk up 16 steps to our floor!
12 - You can pay for your vacation in our condo here on VRBO 480108 with your VIsa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Debit Card, or with E-Check (which is just like paying with your personal check.) We do not have access to any of your account numbers.
