Perfect Vacation!    Nov 19, 2022

review star

Thank you so much for sharing your lovely condo with us! We enjoyed our much needed fall vacation. The couch on the balcony quickly became my favorite spot for a nap. The condo is well appointed with everything you could possibly need. It is in a perfect location with a wonderful view, especially for the sunrise. Shelly was great with communication! We are already planning to come back!

Shelly Parks's reply:

Dear Lore Family, It was my sincere pleasure. Your review truly makes my heart sing. I strive to present our condo as a relaxing home away from home experience opposed to a just a beach destination. Thank you so much for taking your time to share what you loved about our property. Looking forward to hosting you again in the future. Please personally reach out to me for area recommendations and suggestions for your particular time frame. Wishing you and yours a joyous, healthy and safe holiday season.

Great place to stay!    Nov 11, 2022

review star

We stayed here over Veterans Day weekend and you can’t beat the location or the condo it was very clean and had everything we needed. There’s a great view of the sunrise each morning from the balcony and you can see far down the beach as well. It’s very close to the local restaurants and a great place to stay. We will definitely be staying here again soon!

Shelly Parks's reply:

Dear McNeal family, It was a pleasure hosting y'all over Veteran's Day weekend.. I wholeheartedly agree with you that the sunrise is spectacular. I am always in such awe of that every day and each season is to witness something new. Waking up to the crisp Salt Air with a perfect unobstructed clear view of a vibrant Sunrise coming up over the Pier with the waves rolling is one of the most quintessential ways to start one's day; especially during daylight savings time. "You can shake the sand from your shoes, but it will never leave your soul". Looking forward to hosting your next Gulf Shores vacation.

I can’t say enough nice things about staying here. The owner is fantastic to work with. The condo is beautiful and fully stocked with things you never even thought of. The view is breathtaking! I’ve stayed in many condos over the years and this one is at the top of my list. I 100% recommend this rental.

Shelly Parks's reply:

Marissa, Thank you so very much for your most kind words. I can only imagine the frustrations that you had when the other condo complex that you had booked had cancelled on you. It makes my heart happy that not only we were available for you and your family but our condo exceeded your expectations. You were most gracious guests. Thank you for taking above and beyond care of our property. Looking forward to hosting you again in for your future Gulf Shores beach vacation. Until then, may those salt air memories bring happiness always!

We have stayed at Seawinds many times with the family over the years (love the complex and location) and I wish I would have found Shelly and unit 703 many years ago. Seawinds is an great complex and you combine that with a great unit and an owner who really cares about your stay, you can't go wrong. Thank you Shelly for everything and we'll see you next time!

Perfect Valentine's Week!    Feb 13, 2022

review star

We spent Valentine's week at this beautiful condo, and it did not disappoint!!! Shelly was the perfect hostess - one little hiccup at check-in and she took care of it immediately. All it took was a phone call! The condo is in a great location, decorated with so much detail, and met all of our needs perfectly. My favorite part by far was the deck - such comfortable patio furniture and a great place to watch the waves! Thank you again, Shelly, for sharing your beautiful condo with us!

owner image

Shelly Parks's reply:

Kathy & Harry, Thank you for your most kind words! What's that saying?, "it's not so much where you are at as much as who you are with?'....but beachfront in the relaxing Salt Air certainly helps! Hope y'all had the perfect meal at DeSotos as well. It's one of our family favorites too. Looking forward to hosting you both in the future. May your Salt Air Valentine's week memories fill your hearts with joy always.

The Reviews are Correct!    Dec 25, 2021

The reviews of this condo and the owners are no exaggeration! Our stay was equally wonderful and Shelly treated us like family! Very accommodating to all our needs. We had some potential scheduling conflicts with the weather on departure since we flew into Gulf Shores. But Shelly made sure we were taken care of and we ultimately were able to depart on time. This is now our “go to” condo in Gulf Shores! Looking forward to our next trip!

Shelly Parks's reply:

Terry & Pam, Happy New Year! I am so happy that your Coastal Christmas experience exceeded your expectations. It's a quieter time on the beach with such a magical vibe! Thank you for choosing us and thank you for taking such great care of our property. I checked on some preventative maintenance before our cleaners got there....and it was practically spotless!!!! It is guests like you who help us keep our replacement costs manageable. I Look forward to hosting y'all again in the near future! Thank you for choosing a Veteran Owned Small Business.

Birthday Celebrations    Oct 28, 2021

review star

Shelly, the owner, was extremely pleasant and very quick to respond. The condo was as the pictures showed except more beautiful in person. It was beautifully decorated, clean, and well stocked. It had everything you would need including beach chairs, beach mats, toys, and many games. The balcony’s sofa and chairs were so comfortable, which made sitting out there enjoying the gorgeous view even better. We loved staying there so much that we’ve already booked another week for next year. Thank you, Shelly!

Cathy, This makes me smile so big! I am so pleased that your birthday staycation was all that you desired and more. With so many choices along the Gulf Coast, thank you for choosing a Veteran Owned Small business. Looking forward to hosting you again in 2022!

So big and clean!    Oct 25, 2021

review star

We really appreciated Shelly's attention to detail and personalized service. We actually were seeking to rent from an individual instead of a management company, as we've had great success with that in the past, so we were excited to find this condo. The condo was beautifully decorated, had plenty of space for all of us, lovely amenities and was home-like comfortable! We would definitely rent again sometime if going back to the area! The balcony was the best and furniture was comfortable. We had some chilly weather, but on the balcony, if the sun was out, it was still nice and warm out there. The kids loved the games and movies. We loved the big bathrooms with plenty of counter space, the kitchen was well stocked with supplies, and everything was clean.

Shelly Parks's reply:

Heather, thank you for your kind words! Managing our own property is a labor of love. I am so pleased to hear that y'all had such a great time making family beach memories! Thank you for taking such great care of the property; especially when the weather was windy/rainy. We look forward to hosting you again the next time you visit the beautiful Gulf Coast. May your Salt Air Memories warm your hearts.

Perfect!    Oct 03, 2021

We loved Shelly’s condo! We took our daughter and her family. This was our 16 month old grandson’s first beach trip. We’ve stayed at several condos in Gulf Shores and it was evident this one was different. The personal touches made the difference. The beds, the way the kitchen is stocked, the toys for our grandson and the beach gear were all there. Shelly was wonderful and went above and beyond. We especially loved the comfortable balcony furniture. I loathe crappy balcony furniture lol. Thank you, Shelly for sharing your space with us. We would definitely stay again.

Shelly Parks's reply:

Vicky, I love this so much! Family time is precious and vacations are meant for making lifetime memories. I appreciate you taking the time to review your stay.

25th anniversary vacation    Jul 29, 2021

review star

We just returned from a 5 day vacation staying at Shelly's Seawind Condo. Her condo is absolutely beautiful. The blue coastal theme is beautifully laid out throughout the condo. The beds are very comfortable and there are extra blankets in case you get chilly. The kitchen has everything you need to cook at home. My husband and his friend fished with a charter boat company and brought home over 10 lbs of snapper. They utilized the grills and made a delicious fresh seafood dinner. One of our favorite parts of the condo was the large balcony over looking the gulf. The patio furniture was very comfortable for a morning cup of coffee or afternoon cocktail. Shelly made our vacation extra special by delivering flowers, card and dessert for our 25th anniversary. I would definitely recommend her condo for any family wanting a beautiful and conveniently located condo.

Shelly Parks's reply:

Christy, May the Salt Air Memories from your 25th Wedding Anniversary hold forever in your hearts. Of all the destinations and choices from your Colorado home; so glad you chose Gulf Shores, AL and Seawind 703. Thank you for your kind words. We look forward to hosting y'all again in for future travels to the Beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast.

Family vacation    Jul 03, 2021

The first vacation we were supposed to have in 7 years didn’t go quite as planned. My van broke down 8 miles from the condo and I text Mrs. Shelly to let her know it would be much later when we arrived and explained what was going on. Without hesitation she asked where we were And came to take my mom and the kids to the condo while I stayed back to handle the tow truck and other things. When she dropped them off she touched base with me to see what was going on and even came to pick me and all of our luggage up and took me to the condo as well. She went out of her and her husbands way to help us in a time of need. We are so thankful for her! She even offered to take me to the grocery store the next morning if needed. The condo was amazing as well! Everything furnished that would be needed while there. Perfect view of the ocean and the pool / splash pad! Perfect location And walking distance to many things. Despite the many challenges we had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!

Shelly Parks's reply:

Oh Lisa, despite the challenging circumstances for your family's vacation delays; it was with my most sincere heart to assist in your time of need. Bonus for me was to meet your precious family. Thankfully the 4th of July fireworks were "right there" and multiple festivities were within walking distance for your family to enjoy without needing to be car dependent. Looking forward to hosting yall again in the future!!!

Sister's Trip    May 03, 2021

Seawind 703 is part of a conveniently located beachfront condo complex with great amenities, including a gym, sauna, hot tub, pools, grills, and covered parking. Sea-n-Suds is right next door, and the Hangout is an easy walk. There is a small, reasonably priced grocery store across the street. The unit itself is beautifully decorated, well equipped, and very clean. Best of all, it has a large, nicely furnished balcony overlooking the beach and Gulf of Mexico. There are beach chairs available in the unit, as well as water and sand toys. There are also movies and games for days when the weather is less than cooperative. The owner of Seawind 703 is absolutely fantastic! She is kind beyond measure, extremely conscientious, easily accessible, readily answers all questions, offers suggestions regarding local activities, and even checks in with guests without being intrusive. If you're looking for a condo on the beach, Seawind 703 is the place to go!
The welcome book in the unit is very helpful; however, it would be nice if it was a little more descriptive and included walking/driving distances to restaurants, shops, and attractions. I understand that keeping something like that up to date can be difficult and time consuming though.  exterior of the building is undergoing repairs, including roofing and painting, due to Hurricane Sandy. As a result, the pools were closed during our stay, and one elevator was inoperable. Once these repairs are completed, the exterior will look great!

Shelly Parks's reply:

Candace, thank you for your thorough review, especially about the welcome book! I take for granted how convenient and centrally located everything is to our condo; especially what's in walking distance! Looking forward to hosting y'all again in the future-without hurricane construction! Thank you for your understanding. It makes my heart so happy that you and your sisters had the Salt Air experience together at Seawind 703 making lifetime memories!

This was the perfect place for us to stay on our Spring Break trip!  It was beautifully decorated, nicely painted with calm, beachy colors throughout and had everything we needed...even flashlights for nighttime crab hunting, extra soft blankets.  The patio also had new furniture that was comfortable for the 5 of us to sit on and enjoy the beautiful view of the beach!

Shelly helpled make this the most welcoming experience from beginning to the end too! You can tell that she really cares for her guests and truly wants them to have the best vacation.

I highly recommend a visit to Gulf Shores and this condo to stay in!  We hope to be back again some day too!

Great Birthday trip    Sep 11, 2020

We had a great time in 703 ! We went down for my daughters birthday and could not have imagined a better experience. Shelly was the best host you could ask for. The condo was set up very nicely and decorated beautifully. I thought it was very nice that they had sand toys and beach chairs for your use. My daughter enjoyed the bunk room but slept on the couch the last night and watch a movie from the selection in the living room. We had a great time and hope to return next summer when we can stay a bit longer !

Kaycee, Thank you for taking the time to review our property and sharing the fun you had for your daughter's 9th birthday!. This makes my heart so happy that you were able to create these memories and safely leave before Hurricane Sally made herself known. We look forward to y'all coming back to Seawind 703 in 2021 for more Salt Air Fun!

Perfect Condo for Your Beach Vacation!    Jul 05, 2020

review star

Seawind 703 is a wonderful condo. It is immaculate, beautifully decorated, has comfortable beds, as well as a fully stocked kitchen. It is truly a home away from home right on the beach. The location is perfect. You are within walking distance of many restaurants and most conveniently, a Surf Style that is both a souvenir shop and a well stocked market for any items you may have forgotten to bring or get during your grocery shopping. Sea N Suds is located right on the beach next door - so convenient for lunch, dinner, or an afternoon cocktail. The condo has everything your kids could want to play with - boogie boards, a skim board, sand buckets and shovels for the beach, a Wii and board games for indoor play. This place can't be beat! Thank you Shelly for sharing your condo with our family!

Laura, Thank you for choosing your family's beach vacation to be in Gulf Shores this year. I can only imagine some of the additional stress by coming to a new beach destination with all the uncertainties with C-19 . So happy to hear that you had a great time in Gulf Shores and our condo met you and your family's expectations. We hope to be able to host you again for future beach vacation travels.

This condo was so well kept. We frequent the gulf coast often and it’s rare you find a private property that is as well kept as this one. The unit was so clean and had more amenities than we would expect. Great beach view and convenient to everything. We will be back!

Loved your place!    Jun 08, 2019

Shelly, we loved your place!  It was so close to everything.  It was perfect for us 6 Kentucky sisters.The quality kitchen is the most efficient and well stocked.  We really liked having 6 chairs on the veranda.  Other places we stayed have only had 4. We appreciated the towels and washcloths.  The only downside was there was no storage or closet in the bunk room.  Thanks for taking care of our family vacation.

Teresa, Thanks for taking the time to review our property and share your beach vacation experience. I am so pleased to hear that you and your sisters had such a great time. When we spoke upon booking, I expressed the concern that 6 senior adults may be too cramped by utilizing the bunk room for sleeping. The collapsible totes under the bunks are for storage, we have several hanging hooks in the room and plenty of extra storage in the walk in closet in the master, utility room and also offer hotel style folding luggage racks This room is ideal for families with children . Being a Mom to elementary aged children, I am constantly on the look out for storage solutions while keeping safety in mind for that space. I am still impressed that 6 young at heart sisters took a beach vacation together! May God Bless You & thank you for choosing our property for making these special family memories!
