My family has stayed at Island Winds West for over 20 years. We have always had very nice accommodations (Especially Unit 873) and have always enjoyed a very nice relaxing beach vacation. My children now take their children down there. This complex has become our "Beach Place". Would not stay anywhere else, and I have seen several other condos on... More

Fully stocked kitchen, newly updated with new cabinetry, counters, and... More

We have rented with Brett Robinson every trip we have taken to Gulf Shores. The unit was clean, comfortable and exactly what we wanted. Island Winds West is located at a great spot with easy access to the beach and other amenities. We love being able to walk to local eateries and shopping.

Everything worked in the unit and it had all the necessary appliances. The unit was well lit and the furniture was comfortable. I like to relax with a good book and the... More

This was my first time renting through Brett Robinson and also staying at Island Winds West. It was a great experience for both. The property was exactly as advertised. Easy walk out to beach and great central location. The property is older but well maintained in general. The unit we rented was clean, updated, and had everything we needed. It... More

We are repeat customers for both Brett/Robinson Vacations and Island Winds West (and East)! There are two units in Island Winds West that we prefer because of the furnishings and knowing what to expect; but every unit has been acceptable. The Brett/Robinson Website is very user friendly and clearly shows what you are getting. The rates for these properties are... More

Directly on the beach, can look out of the back window and see your umbrella and beach chairs. Left umbrella out over night, and it was fine. Room was a bit small and dated, but it was clean, and everything worked. The two elevators were fast, which is a big help when people are going out to the beach often.... More

The only reason I give this place 2 stars is because of the location. It is right off the beach and not very crowded as compared to other places near by. There are also some good shops Within walking distance. That being said, the rest of the place SUCKS!!!!! First off only one roll of toilet paper for each bathroom... More

I was more than happy with our stay at Island Winds West. I will definitely try to stay there again next time. The location is absolutely perfect and it was quiet and family friendly. Not a party type place which is important to me because I have young children. The realty company we used to rent the room was excellent... More

We have stayed at Island Winds West for several years. It is a very family friendly condo that is within walking distance of the "T" in Gulf Shores. The condo is very close to all the shops and restaurants and it is easy to get in and out of in traffic by car or to walk to the places. We... More
