The good: The building and pools are all in great shape. Our family had a great time using the pool area and it's just a short walk over the dunes to the beach. The 5 bedroom unit was plenty big enough for our large family and we even turned the master closet into a bedroom for some of the kids.... More

My family of 8 stayed at Southwinds in the latter part of June. On a positive note, it is a nice place in an excellent location that is not crowded at all! On a not-so-positive note, be prepared to clean your own condo and be sure and take plenty of your own towels and toilet paper. Toward the end of... More

We don't know how nice Laura was because she was not working nor was anyone in the office except from 9 AM to 4 PM. Every time we dialed, next... More

We have been staying at the South Wind for nine years and truly love it. The staff is accommodating and very professional especially Laurie Mc Watty. Our condo is superb. It is so nice having an exercise room, indoor pool and hot tub for those cooler days. The South Wind is a great place with a warm and friendly atmosphere.
