Island Winds East
Reviewed June 10, 2011

We just got back from staying in Island Winds Complex. Our unit was 804. This complex is next to the public beach so it's very packed with people! The elevator broke down twice. Every morning at 3:30 a.m. the trash pickup would come and empty the dumpster and was VERY loud. No insulation in these units. There was a sign above the toilet that said hold handle down 5 seconds to flush...that was very aggrevating. The sink wouldn't drain or the tub. Old outdated condos. Won't stay here again!!!
