“A Great Vacation Booked through Brett/Robinson Vacations!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

We rented Condo 301 which is a 3 bedroom 2 bath. It was Perfect for our group of 7 women! We found the condo to be very spacious! Also each room in this condo had windows in it which allowed you to view the ocean from every room! As for location, It could not have been better! We could walk to The Hangout, Bahama Bob's, and Tequila West which is a great little Mexican Restuarant. Also within walking distance was several souvenir shops and other restuarants to choose from. If you get the chance to stay at this facility DO SO!!! It is owned and operated by Brett/Robinson Vacations! You will not be disappointed! It is the perfect beach vacation spot!!!

Room Tip: Room 301 is a corner unit. Nothing but the Beach between you and The Hangout!

We have visited Gulf Shores, for many years & have fallen in love with Island Winds East!! We never even think twice about where to stay. We always book our Condo thru Brett/Robinson Vacations & they are the nicest, friendliest, most helpful people ever!! :) IWE is super convenient to many restaurants, shopping & things for the kiddos to do but, mostly to the Beach! B/R offers many Free Night Specials & savings deals on their user friendly website. IWE806 is a super cute & comfy condo with everything you need for a relaxing vacation!! If you're looking for comfortable, casual & convenience - check out Island Winds East!! Happy Trails!!

Room Tip: Island WInds East & West has 1, 2 & 3 Bedroom Condos.

We rented through Brett/Robinson who was very accomidating and helpful. The building was well maintained but really starting to show it's age. We had a first floor unit (108) which was nice to run up to from the beach (best beach in the world) or the pool (small) but the views upstairs had to be much better...we still enjoyed nice views of dolphins swimming by though.
The unit itself was cramped for 5 people and is fairly dated. I would not stay in it again until it has been updated...but you cannot beat the location.

This is a great low rise condo. The beach is beautiful and is not overly crowded. It is located right in the heart of town within walking distance of the Hangout and retial stores.

Room Tip: ocean front is a must

When we are arrived the staff was friendly and helpful, the condo was sparkling clean and ready. We couldn't have asked for better weather. IWE is centurally located near resturants and shopping making it very convenient. The beaches are absolutly georgeous. We have been coming here for years and yet to be dissappointed.

We have stayed at Island Winds East since 2004!! Every year in 806 since 07!! Brett/Robinson has many properties here in Gulf Shores but, IWE is very affordable & very convenient & the staff here is always so friendly!! We never even question where we will stay when we come to GS. The view is beautiful & the room is always clean & comfortable & the owners update something every year! So it's always a nice surprise to see the changes! The pool is small but, always refreshing when you come off the beach. Being able to check-in onsite is a big plus! This location is close to everything - souvenir shops, The Hangout, Shrimp Basket, Bahama Bobs, Pink Pony are all within walking distance, with many other restaraunts & shopping within a minutes drive. We are already planning our next visit -- can't wait!!

Room Tip: Check out Brett/Robinson Vacations on Facebook & their website for free nite specials!
