Our stay was wonderful. The condo was clean and had all the needed essentials. If there was 1 not so great thing it was the tub drained very slow so you would end up standing in a couple inches of water by the end of your shower. And the view was amazing. We were there for 4 days and were not ready to leave. Great Vacation!

Island Winds West 675 - Furnishings were exactly as pictured on website. It was very well-decorated (unlike some with that yard-sale look)with all the modern touches yet still comfy. The view was wonderful! Everything was clean and tidy, but sheets for sleeper sofa were questionable. The reservation process, check-in and checkout was easy. Alescia and Tripp were great! The office is conveniently located near the Publix, so grocery shopping was a breeze on the way to the condo. Location is also convenient to restaurants and other shopping needs. The only drawback was that the bedroom was farthest from the beachfront and the a/C unit was really loud, so couldn't hear the waves. All in all, it was a great weekend and would stay there again.
Not at all what we expected.

The shower was dirty with soap scum. Also, the shower drain didn't work properly. So we were standing in ankle deep water when showering. When I reported this the response was rude. This is described as a one bedroom but is more like a studio. There is no door to the one bedroom. It is open to the rest of the condo. Overall, not what we expected. We stayed in another condo at Islands Winds West for the remainder of our stay and it felt much like a palace after staying in an unclean place for three nights. Read more

The soap scum issue will be addressed with Housekeeping. There are no work orders or notes from your reservation showing where the shower drain problem was called in or we would have happily sent Maintenance out to take care of it. Just like in our own homes, things need maintenance and upkeep. Island Winds 675 has been recently remodeled from ceiling to floor and is stunning. Especially in an older building like this one.

Let me start by saying youngs sun coast had the best service I could have expected. They helped me with some ideas of things in the area and helped with questions if that condo was right for us. The pictures and description were better than advertised and I am pretty hard to please. This will definitely be our new vacation getaway.
Totally satisfied just wish I'd of stayed longer:)

one week stay with 3 days of planning
Left on 05/10/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Mr. and Mrs Robert Strom
We had a great time. two days of sun and 5 days rain, we made the very best of our time. The condo was very neat, clean,close to grocery stores and shopping. For a one bedroom is was just perfect for us two. We would go back again. We love the beach and the short distance from Decatur, AL.
We drove to Pensacola and saw the Naval Museum 2 days and very interesting to see.

It was great! Very clean room with a perfect window view to the beach. I know we will be back to this one for sure. It was a great room with a fully stocked kitchen for all cooking purposes. It was nice to have a washer and dryer in the room as well. The only thing missing from there was a hairdryer. No big deal, but ill remember to bring one just incase next time.
Beautiful view of the beach

The check in was very easy and staff very friendly. The room was great, except we had expected a one bedroom and it was like an efficiency, with a bed in a room, no door. Other than that, we thought the room and service was great. The staff at the condo were also very friendly. We only had one problem, with the sofa bed, but the managment sent someone over to fix it immediately. We loved the location, near shops, etc.

Our stay at this condo was awsome. The people at Young's Suncoast were great. They treated us with the upmost respect. The unit was clean, and right on the beach. It took us maybe 2 minutes to walk down to the beach. We checked with many other places before choosing this one, but their price could not be beat. I would highly recommend this company.
Pleasant accomodation - Excellent view!

Great experience with Young's Suncoast Vacation Rentals. This is the third time we have rented a condo through them and have never had any problem. Island Winds West 675 was nice, clean, and had an excellent view of the beach.

When my boyfriend called to make the reservations he said Andy was very nice. The home was great! Very convienant to everything. It was clean...and a great view of the beach. Only complaint that we really have is that the remote control to the TV did not work. :) Having to set in the floor to flip channels brought back memories though. :) We will defitnetly be back to visit the area and would like to stay in the same condo again.
common sense isn't
Needs a lot of TLC

The bathtub did not drain well at all. The light near the kitchen sink didn't work. The condo needs remodeling, it's in pretty bad shape.

Condo needs serious work to even be habitable. Wallpaper in the bath is mildewed
and peeling. Decorating was awful and dated; many items were downright tacky
looking. It was clean (except for mildew on bath walls); if it had been dirty on top of it
being non-habitable, we would have left and demanded a refund. We'll be staying at
a hotel next time, out of fear that we'll end up in another questionable place like this
one. It overshadowed theentire trip with disappointment. Read more

Great location right on Gulf Shores beach. Walking distance (safe) from local restaurants and Mud Bugs bar.Condo great size for two people but could do with redecorating and modernisation, especially the bathroom. Low/non existent crime area but would have preferred room safe for passports and valuables. General safe available at office but restricted access. Disagreed with having to pay parking fee when we didn't have a car but will definitely be renting one on next visit. Lovely pool as option to gulf which is also great for swimming/bathing. Loved the fact that not many, if any other Brits were there although a few locals had trouble understanding our accents! Great people and lovely southern hospitality. Can't wait to get back.
