This was my first time renting a condo and I was impressed with it's size and layout but the ocean view took my breath away. Sitting on the balcony drinking coffee in the mornings while checking emails listening to the waves and birds is in my opinion the very best way to start every morning. Late nights my family and...

We love staying at the Island Winds Condos. They are right on the beach and walking distance to several restaurants. The new Windows offer great views from the second you walk in the condo. These may not be the fanciest condos on the beach but they have everything you need for a perfect vacation.

We will definitely be back to this property!! Very clean, the room and grounds are well kept. Great view. We got an Oceanview and it was amazing. Literally feet from the beach. Loved front desk open 24/7. Front desk extemely helpful and friendly. Only issue was parking. There are minimal spots.

Our unit was good overall. There were a few things; no icemaker in refrigerator, couch needs to be replaced, I realize that some people are not respectful of other peoples' property....but there are some minor repairs that could be done to improve the overall appearance. There was a ceiling fan in bedroom, which was a plus. Plenty of towels, etc.... More

Second year to stay in this condo. Condo was beat and clean. Some of the furnishings are dated, but are comfortable and in good condition. Good set-up with all the amenities you will need to have a relaxing, enjoyable stay. Hope to stay in this same condo next year

This was our second trip in three years to Island Winds East. We love the beach, ocean & food in the area. The condo was very nice, but the second bedroom bed was not very good. The front bed was a king and it was a great bed. We will certainly come back.

The condo wasn't clean. First day there and my husband's feet turned black from walking on the floor. When we got into the bed the first night the sheets had sand in them. The tub had a pink slimy film around the top. The toilet lid was broke in the main bathroom. I have made reservations through Brett Robinson for... More
