Starting with the bedroom and working my way through this condo I will start with the black, tar-like substance on the carpet by the foot of the bed that we kept stepping on and sticking to because of the location. With that being said the carpet needs a good cleaning. The laundry door was off the track when we arrived... More

Some of the repair work inside my unit was done not very good. I would recommend that you use more qualified repair people. That would include drywall and painters. The rest of the unit inside and out was good.

We have rented two condos for our family from Brett Robinson for the past 7 years. We like the location and amenities at Island Winds West. We are within walking distance to the Hangout and souvenir shops, and the beach is beautiful here. Accommodations were clean and bright with beach decor. We will book again!

LOVED the location in the heart of Gulf Shores right on the beach. Building was clean and well maintained overall. Check in/check out quick and easy process. The unit itself needs updates and/or maintenance. Neither tub controls worked right, and my husband had to fix minor issues with both toilets during our stay. Master bedroom furniture was not in bad... More

We had a great time again this year. Excellent place. We had a lot of rain so it was nice to have such a wonderful place to relax. Very clean. The beach was nice what little time we got to go enjoy the sand. We plan on doing it again next year

Island Winds West is a great location--very convenient to walk or drive to restaurants and shops. It's a nice property. The one-bedroom unit is small, but fine for two people. Would not recommend for more than 2 guests. Sleeper sofa was terribly uncomfortable--ended up just sleeping on the sofa. Unit 477--very nice Gulf view. Sink the bathroom was slow to... More

The room was on the beach and had a wonderful balcony. It was a tight fit in the bedroom with a king sized bed, but decent. The bathroom was not as clean as I would have preferred, but was not dirty, just was not to my standard. I also was not used to not having enough toilet paper where we... More

We visit this condo every year in August and love it here. Housekeeping seems to have slacked significantly in the past couple of years, really hoping that improves so we don't have to find another vacation spot. The location is unbeatable in our opinion!

Very disappointed! Dirty dishes in cabinets, dirty floors, dusty furniture, broken electrtic sockets...the list goes on and on. Wouldn't recommend this condo to anyone. It's our 3rd trip to Gulf Shores. Our 1st and last stay here!

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
