I absolutely love the beach! Island winds east is located next to the hangout with shops and restaurants in walking distance. The new elevators were great!! The staff is also wonderful. I will be back for sure.

We stayed at Island Winds East in unit 401. Nicely decorated with everything we needed for a great Christmas dinner. White sand is a lot better to shovel than snow, but we did see a snowman, well kinda :)

There was a card in this unit that asked us to review the unit we stayed in on tripadvisor, if we liked it. I don't have a tripadvisor account. But guess what, I made one just to say thanks to the owners of this place....More

The view was great. The furniture in Living room needs replaced. Kitchen cabinets are dated. The master bedroom was comfortable. The towels were pleasantly thick enough and soft. Shower was nice and hot. Beautiful beach. Saw dolphins every day.

jamesl1009: It certainly sounds as if you and your family enjoyed your beach vacation. Owners are always repairing/ replacing items and we will look at what needs to be done. Please come back and see us again when the beach calls you back.

My husband and myself and our friend came down for several days. The condo was great, the pool was excellent and the ocean was a little ruff for a couple of days. But overall it was an excellent trip.
