Property was somewhat in a state of neglect--the dresser in the bedroom had 2 drawers (bottom) that were stuck & unusable, the furniture was somewhat dated, & the ice maker in the fridge did not work so well.

This is a very handy place to stay. Close to the "T", and close to the eating places we like to frequent. We have triedw Orange Beach but too much driving time to dining and other places. Very comfortable condo, nicely decorated beach themed. We hope to stay here again next year.

We stand in Condo 371 and it was great. It was clean and had everything we need. Have used Brett Robinson Condo Rental for years they are the best. I always love setting on the balcony having coffee in the morning and watch the peaceful beach, Great view of the beach.

We had a great time and enjoyed our stay at Island Winds West. The condo was very spacious and clean and provided everything we needed. Was very convenient to all that Gulf Shores has to offer and would definitely recommend to everyone. The only suggestion I would make is chairs and sofa needs to be replaced. They were very uncomfortable.... More

Our trip was p"anned last minute and was the only place we could book for Labor Day weekend. It's Beach Front and they have a pool. The building/rooms are older, it could stand to be remodeled/painted..but it was clean and the staff were nice. We would stay there again.

Stayed 6 nights. 8th floor. Great beach. Close to all you need, restaurants, convenience store. Now for what may disappoint some. Older building. No restroom I could find on ground floor by pool. Our unit was one bedroom but was not separated with door. Worked for wife and me but I would not have shared this unit with kids or... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Island Winds West in Gulf Shores is especially great for families and sleeps up to 8 in a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom unit. It's the perfect headquarters for enjoying all the fun Gulf Shores has to offer. There's fishing from Gulf State Park Pier, or charter a boat in nearby Orange Beach and take to the Gulf for the afternoon to see what you can catch. We have putt-putt and amusement parks, and a great number of golf courses of varying difficulty right near our Gulf Shores condos. In addition to the variety of non-beach related activities we have, we also tons of water activities on top of good ol' sunbathing and swimming. Gulf Shores and Orange Beach offer jet ski rental, parasailing, kite surfing, boat rental and more. Take a ride on a Dolphin Cruise to admire those highly intelligent and amusing animals, or enjoy the views from the Mobile Bay Ferry as you journey to check out items of more historical interest, like Fort Morgan. In town you'll find a lot of adventure no matter what you are looking for at Island Winds West. When it comes to cuisine, our seafood is of course top-notch, and our Royal Red Shrimp have made international headlines for their deliciousness. Places like the Amphitheater at the Wharf and the Hangout have live music, and the Wharf has the largest Ferris Wheel in the Southeast. We even have a zoo, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo, which you may have seen featured on Animal Planet. Parking is limited at Island Winds West. A one-bedroom condo will be issued one car pass. A two or three bedroom will be issued a maximum of two car passes. ... more   less
