The Westwind condominiums in Gulf Shores boast a certain understated charm. Built in 1997, this nine-story complex has a mere 32 units, ensuring a more tranquil living experience. One- and two-bedroom condos, with some penthouses featuring up to four bedrooms, offer plenty of living space with sizes ranging from 600 to 1,000 square feet. Many of the units have been updated, some even featuring granite countertops in the kitchen.
Westwind offers private balconies that overlook the stunning Gulf of Mexico, beckoning residents to soak up the scenic vistas. In addition to standard living areas, most units include bunkbeds, providing extra sleeping arrangements for guests. Residents can enjoy the outdoor pool area, which is conveniently situated near the beach, making it a great spot for sunbathing and swimming. The complex also features a barbecue area and outdoor shower.
Parking is available in the lightly landscaped, uncovered lot, with room for a maximum of two vehicles per unit. Westwind is located just over a mile from the Highway 59 intersection, where there are a variety of retail and dining options. Local favorites like Pier 33 and Janino’s Pizza are also within walking distance. To the east is Crystal Shores West and to the west is Ocean House II. Westwind may be less flashy than its neighbors, but its unassuming nature is precisely what makes it so appealing to those seeking a simpler way of life on the coast.
