We stayed at IWE and IWW many, many years in the past; however, we went to Orange Beach and Perdido Key for the past several years. We returned to IWW and I was really kind of disappointed. The internet connection was TERRIBLE. My daughter, who is taking a summer college class, wasn't able to complete her homework due to not... More

Perfect space for our family of 10. Clean.Everything worked. All the windows facing the Gulf almost invited the wves into the unit. The balcony may have been the most used space in the condo. Beds were very comfortable. We were totally plrased with our experience.

This was our first trip to Gulf Shores and we really enjoyed it and our condo was a big part of that! We booked our condo through Brett/Robinson Vacation Rentals. The view from our balcony was beautiful everyday! Our room was clean and we'll decorated. The staff was friendly and helpful. The beach was clean and not terribly crowded. The... More

This is a great place to stay even with a 19 month old. We did have to move a few items out of her sight and place back before we checked out. This location fit everything we had planned on doing while at the beach.

The condo is very outdated, stove is from the 70's needs to be replaced, the microwave has no power and we could not use the coffee pot because the pad on the burner was burnt up and had stuff burned on to the pad. There was no lock chain on the door which caused a security issue, the room was... More

I have stayed at 3 different condos at this facility and this one while good was our least favorite. The kitchen counters were gritty and unclean upon arrival. The unit seemed to have more wear than the others. The "starter" kits of toilet paper, garbage bags, etc were the smallest amount of any. We will continue to use Island Winds... More

Do NOT select 274 Island Winds West until updates have been made on this rental. It was the dirtiest place we have stayed in our years of Gulf Shores travel. We reported the condition of 274 to the Brett-Robinson staff in the East building. The building itself, pool, grounds, etc. were clean and perfect. We might rent here again, but... More

Great location! Something never seen in a condo was an adjoining door for access to the condo next door to help accommodate larger groups. Looks to be recently renovated. Enjoyed the rockers on the balcony.

We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo on the 2nd floor that faces Island Winds East. We could see a little of the beach.The furnishings and floors are a little worn but clean.The kitchen had just enough cookware that we could make breakfast but not enough to make a big meal. Overall, it was a decent place and I'd... 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
