Tradewinds 201 - Ground Floor Unit, pool, tennis, beach
Perfectly sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, our beachfront condo is ideal for a picturesque Crescent Beach vacation. From our end unit ground-floor patio you can see the dunes but there is a peek a boo look at the ocean in two distinct areas, plus pool view. From the front of the complex you can walk across the street to the private boat ramp and dock, sit on the dock and watch an unobstructed sunset right on the waterway with pristine marshlands in the horizon. Its heaven, tranquility at its finest!
Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo is a ground floor patio end unit that can accommodate oceanfront and/or intercostal waterway living. The living room has sliding glass doors with a panoramic view of the ocean, dunes, pool, and clubhouse. Beyond these doors a patio runs the length of our condo, with Adirondack chairs and café tables for outdoor relaxation. It's the perfect place to slip out to first thing in the morning, as the sun rises over the horizon. Return throughout the day and evening for that salty sea breeze, soothing roar of the waves, or just some fresh air! Don’t forget to catch those sunsets on the dock, you will not be disappointed.
Slip back inside and you're in our open-floor-plan condo, with a generously sized living room, computer desk, dining area, breakfast bar and kitchen past that. Everything is so open here that you can watch the ocean as you cook dinner! (But who’s cooking! you're on vacation).
You'll love the tropical feel and cool colors of our living room. The walls are margarita-green, the furniture is Tommy Bahama polished bamboo tables and chairs and an expansive leather couch that is ultra-comfortable -- perfect for that exhausted post-beach "flop"! A wall mounted big 50” Direct TV with Smart DVD (Netflix, You Tube, etc.) player and HDMI cable (for personal computer plug in) is in the corner; with Sony surround sound that will exceed your expectations.
The computer desk is useful due to AT&T; Wi-Fi specific to that unit to accommodate any business or pleasure needs via the internet.
In our dining area the round glass-topped table is set with 4 pleasantly cushioned chairs, and just the right size for hosting card games or casual dining.
Our kitchen is beyond the dining area, and you'll find it thoroughly equipped with cookware, utensils, and appliances both large and small. Whether you want to fix the catch of the day or just make a quick batch of daiquiris, you'll enjoy the convenience of our kitchen. There's even a breakfast bar with 3 padded stools. Just add groceries!
You'll love the master suite, with its luxurious king-sized bed, wall mounted Direct TV, Smart DVD player and wall of huge windows that can be left exposed (for peeking at the ocean, stargazing and dawn awakening) or firmly closed (to sleep laaaaaaate!). Walk in closet leads to the master bath that contains both a shower and tub option, and is equipped with all the towel sets you will need.
Surf's up in the second bedroom this bright and cheerful room contains a queen bed plus twin bed; there is even a roll-a-way sleeper bed in the closet if needed. Direct TV and smart Blu-ray DVD that kids/guests of all ages will appreciate. Long windows can flood the room with light, or can be darkened for those fabulous early-afternoon naps! Our second full bathroom is convenient to this room as well as to the living area.
The Atlantic and the Intracoastal are your playgrounds here at Tradewinds 201, but the condo complex itself also has plenty of amenities for you. There's an oceanfront swimming pool with lounge seating, a tennis court on the banks of the Intracoastal, a boat ramp, a dock (with sitting benches) and a private dune walkover to the beach with sitting benches, complete with a shower. The bedrooms all have fresh linens, and towels and the laundry room is just a quick walk to the clubhouse next to the pool area should you need freshening up.

Left on 01/15/2014 for a stay in January 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Jan 15, 2014Stayed Jan 2014
The condo is beautiful very nicely updated decorated. The location is fantastic. I came here for relaxation and quiet. But didn't know until after booking that the place had renovation going on. This made it very un-private and annoying. I was offered to move but was not convenient due to my physical handicap and my schedule. Disapppointed that this happened during my timing. Learned a lesson next time.
