A friend and I stayed at the Gulf Winds Resort in unit 1506 for a week at the end of May. Our unit was booked privately thru VBRO but the cleaning and maintenance is done by the office. We arrived after office hours and had by prior arrangements had the key left in a lock box. There is plenty of street parking but you need to show a parking permit which is provided by the office. Where I live there is zero tolerance and didn't want to start or stay with a ticket. There was metered parking a 1/2 block away n/c after 6 pm. Unit 1506 is on the third floor facing away from the ocean. Large generous sized unit 2 bedrooms; master had a two twins pushed together and second two twins apart, living room, dining room, bathroom and a large deck accessed from the master bedroom. We did a double take as the unit looked very different from the pictures on the website turned out it was not the same but the other unit for rent. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots and pans even two dishwasher tablets. There is a mall not far with a Publix and we stocked up for the week. The beach could be seen from the windows and deck and a quick walk and your there. Beach chairs and noodles were provided. The pool area was always very clean and never too full. Wonderful to come home from a day of sightseeing and take a quick dip before dinner. The unit was clean where we arrived no cleaning was included during our stay. A large stack of wonderfully fluffy towels in the bathroom but the linens on the bed were cheap and pilled very uncomfortable on a sunburnt and sand rubbed body. The main burner on the stove didn't work reported it to the office on Sunday but still hadn't been repaired when we left on Saturday. The sunshine ceiling in the bathroom was erratic due to the humidity. The blinds in the unit were being changed but the master still had the mini blinds and all the rods were broken so couldn't open/close. Overall we were pleased with Gulf Winds and would stay again but not in this unit due to the maintenance issues.
