During our recent trip to Gulf Shores, May 9 – 13, 2014, we stayed at the Seawinds Condominiums. Seawinds is located on the beach about ¼ mile east of the Hangout Restaurant, immediately next to the Sea & Suds restaurant. The building has 19 stories. The first 3 stories are covered parking. There is also a large outdoor parking lot for larger vehicles. There is easy access to the beach. The grounds were very clean and well maintained. Check-in and check-out was easy and quick.
Two issues that may be of concern to some people are the small swimming pool and the fact that there are only 2 elevators for this high-rise condominium. We were there when there did not appear to be a lot of people, therefore the elevator situation did not affect us. The property has 2 swimming pools. There is a large kids’ pool and there is an adult pool across the walkway. Half of this pool is outside and the other half is inside the building. There is not a lot of area around the pool for laying out in the sun, so if this is important to you, this is probably not the best place for you.
We stayed in unit 406, which was on the first floor of units. It was a 2-bedroom condo. The unit was well-maintained and very clean, with very nice furniture. The master bedroom had a king bed and the 2nd bedroom had a queen bed. Both had large closets. There was another room that had a set of bunk-beds that could be used as an additional bedroom. The kitchen was well-equipped and had just about anything you would need. It had a very large balcony that could be accessed from the living room and the master bedroom. It also had a full-sized washer & dryer.
Overall, we were very pleased with the unit itself and the property and had no complaints. We certainly would consider staying here again the next time we go to Gulf Shores.
