“Gulf winds March 2012”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Just checked out of Gulfwinds hours ago....we had a great month staying there!! We were also there for March 2011. Wonderful place next to the #1 USA beach! It has great staff and friendly neighbors! We did not have a car and were able to walk to many terrific restaurants, the grocery store, Walgreens, Historic Corey Avenue, etc. The trolley gets you anywhere else you need to go, or try the free taxi!! We reserved for March 2013 before we left.

WOW! A wonderful vacation place to stay. Everything & then some provided for your comfort. Unit # 704 is clean as a whistle..........Just bring in your bags & relax. Pictures provided on owners website were true to life. Laundry room just steps away. Full stocked kitchen. Beach chairs etc. Child friendly ammenities provided. We had a blast & didn't want to leave, & believe me, the price was extremely reasonable. This 2 bedroom condo sleeps 6 people comfortably. This is one of the best units in the whole complex. If you want to see for yourself, here's the website..... www.VRBO#83593.com

My daughters and wife refused to stay. Several things turned us off and it was so bad we went down the beach and walked in off the street to rent another condo - on the beach for a few more dollars. I tried to get a refund, but owner refused even though we were there less than 5 minutes. The complex is old and hallways and stair wells are sketchy at the best. I would NEVER stay at the complex and plan to write a review on Trip Advisor and other vacation sites also in case owner delets this review somehow. Learn from my costly lesson!

We arrived at the Gulf Winds and were given the key and directed to our condo , it smelt a bit musty, and the furniture is a little outdated, the floor needed a clean and the bathroom sink was stained, the bedrooms were quite adequate,and the sheets were clean, the twin room was next to a generator which was very noisy ! The towels were hard but useable.The condo was okay, but we were not aware that they are graded so just be careful which one you choose, ask when you book .
The location is very good, with the beach over the road, the swimming pool is lovely but not a lot of umbrellas. The restaurants are within walking distance, and there is a free beach buggy ride to where ever you want to go, all you do is give a tip of $1 .

Room Tip: good location, friendly people

My partner and I, along with his 78 year old mom and her 80 year old friend booked Gulf Winds for our vacation from June 9 - 23, 2010. We had a late flight in and told the agency that we would require a "late check-in". They assured us that they would leave the key in lock box - which they did. We arrived at Gulf Winds at 2:00 a.m. Only problem - the agency (which proclaims 24/7 service) did not answer the phone when we call numerous times and left numerous messages! We ended up sleeping in the rental car the first night of our vacation. Furthermore, we were NOT compensated for any inconvience nor were we given an apology by management. The lady who worked in the office was super and very genuine. When asked why our call wasn't answered, the response, "the guy working was otherwise occupied". They refunded the night we slept in the car (ya think.)- so in actual fact..we got nothing!! No apology or discount for the remainder of our stay. Our senior travellors spend the remainder of their holiday trying to get the "kinks" out of their neck and back. .If you want to risk sleeping in your car until the office opens at 9:00 a.m., by all means I recommend this condo. Trust me when I tell you - you will be disappointed because they certainly do not know the meaning of customer service.

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.

The unit we stayed in has a full fenced in padio on the ground level and was close to the pool and the beach and the Russian Restaurant. We had 2 bedrooms one with a giant bed and the other with 2 singles and 2 pull out leather sofas in the living room to sleep at least 8 people. The place comes with stroller, armfloats and toys in the closet along with all the extra blankets and pillows to make anyone comfey. With 2 TV's and wireless internet acess right in the unit everyone can me doing something different. It had all the kitchen things you could possiblly need including a griddle, crock pot, and many other small appliances. When you open up the cabnet in the bathroom there is any kind of sunscreen you can imagine and other things you may have forgotten to pack. Between the beach chairs, books and playingcards there is always something to do even if it rains. Great place to escape hectic tampa bay area life and go to the beach.
