Property Reviews 
Great View
Reviewed by: timwL3893HK
Stayed for 0 days in April, 2016
This condo is situated perfectly to view the Gulf Waters and the white sandy beaches. The condo itself is in need of some upgrading. The ceramic Tile floor near the bathroom has lifted from the base and makes noise when it's walked on, the windows are foggy and latches need to be replaced, one window is broken, all windows were unable to be opened , making it impossible to take advantage of the fresh Gulf air. When the wind blew hard it would move the windows and the wind would blow into the room, almost pushing the windows fully open, being hung up on the outside screen prevented the window from coming in completely !! The bedroom is an open area, no door for privacy and the bedroom window is located adjacent to the main hallway and the elevator doors, the noise in the hallway as well as the busy elevators can be very disruptive when trying to sleep. The lights in that outside hallway are bright enough to make it hard to sleep without putting something over the window to darken the room!! Sitting on the balcony with a coffee in the morning or a different drink in the evening are both great experiences.

Condo was dated and we would not stay again. Was not worth money paid for it. When we pay that much money, we expected nicer accommodations . Security was wonderful. Lots of noise until ten at night and it cut off completely. We appreciated that.

My husband lost his booking privileges. The details said sleeps 6. Didn't mention that 1 had to sleep on a busted up cot. Dirty bath rug. Bugs bugs bugs. TV didn't work properly. No door for master bedroom. My daughter and I both injured our toes on fold out sofa. Major disappointment.

I had been to Gulf Shores several times but had never stayed at the Island Winds West Condo. The condo was great! It is perfect for a couple visiting and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was amazing. The room was very neat and clean. The condo itself was located very close to some of my favorite eating places. I would highly recommend a stay there and as always I thank Young's Suncoast Realty for making our stay a wonderful one.

Overall, bittersweet...
A FlipKey verified reviewer from Natchez,
Stayed for 0 days in March, 2011
My husband and I booked our much-anticipated vacation through Joy at Young's Suncoast Vacation Rentals. She was quite helpful. However, the one bedroom condo had no door to separate the room from the other areas of the condo. I came to sleep and he came to watch TV! This was definitely a problem. There were a couple of minor maintenance issues also. Terry, our wonderful maintenance man, notified the owner of our dilemma. We were immediately referred back to the "home office" and upgraded to a 2 bedroom condo for a nominal fee. The 2nd condo was beautiful. I could relax and nap and he could watch TV. However, on the 2nd day of our much-anticipated vacation, My Mother called with the sad news of the unexpected death of my favorite Uncle. We packed up and headed home early. It was agonizing both b/c of the tremendous loss of my uncle and the abrupt end to a much-needed vacation in such a beautiful condo in a serene surrounding. But I can always go back and will use Young's Suncoast for every trip to Gulf Shores from here on out. Kelly was so helpful and kind. She is a brilliant manager and excellent at her job. We have been going to Gulf Shores for over 20 years, long before the growth of the area. I have very fond memories of "The Spot" Restaurant and pristine beaches. I have supported the area through Hurricane andrew and even the Oil Spill (our family went twice last year after the spill. I had to see my beloved gs oasis.) In short, although the 1st condo was not up to par, the professional staff, esp. Ginger and Kelly, at Young's Suncoast went above and beyond my expectations with the 2nd. I highly recommend using Young's Suncoast Vacation Rentals. We will use them for all of our future Gulf Shores vacations.

My husband and I have not been to the beach in almost five years so this was a special trip for us. Island Winds West is located in a great area and has a wonderful, clean beach. The personnel that we encountered there were very courteous and always pleasant. We loved the view we had from our unit and enjoyed a quiet, relaxing time.

Stayed for 0 days in March, 2010
I had the opportunity this month to take my son and his friend to the beach for spring break. Our highlight was the fishing and beautiful weather. Our condo was emaculant, affordable and felt like home away from home. The location was perfect! Steps away from shopping and dining. I would recommend this rental property to anyone and will definantly stay at one of young's suncoast properties again. We had a great time. And to top it all off, we were able to cook the fish we caught right in the condo due to the fact everything we needed was already supplied, not to mention the grills outside at the patio.

Condo needs updated
Willie from IN,
Stayed for 0 days in August, 2009
We have been going to Gulf Shores for years. We felt that our condo could have been cleaner.Some of the dishes were put away dirty. There was a wicker trunk in the hall and all of the pillows in it were wet. I called our realty office to report the wet pillows. They called housekeeping and more pillows were left in our room. The wet pillows weren't taken care of. When we first arrived our air conditioner wasn't working. Maintence did come and called someone to take care of it. It kind of left us stuck in the condo while it was being taken care of. The toaster didn't work properly. The elevator was a little stinky. I don't think that we would stay in the same condo again. On a positive note we did feel like the maintence man was friendly and tried to take care of things.

Me and my husband really enjoyed our weekend at Island winds, the view was just beautiful. I would like next time to stay there again when we come back with the kids which will probably be in July. I liked it being so close to stores and restaurants. I couldn't find anything wrong with room everything was very nice. Thank You, Donna Bennnett

Very dirty it hasn't been rented for awhile, it should have had floors mopped and counters and table wiped down before we came. It has had to been sitting empty for awhile. Stove was back from the 60's. Only two burners worked. Will look for another place all together next time.

Property Manager Response:
We sure hate that you had to experience a less than clean condo upon your arrival. Please know that I have addressed this with the cleaning crew and do not feel this will be an issue again. We have also mailed a letter along with a 10% discount for a future stay your way. Please feel free to contact me directly at any time, Christi Bates
