For generations, the Alabama Gulf Coast has been vacation central for Alabamians -- and increasingly, people from other states. Known for its sugar sand beaches, fish-laden waters, all-American charm and good value, the Gulf Coast is one of the most popular family vacation spots in the South earning the area the nickname of “Pleasure Island."
Located on Perdido Key Island, just east of the Alabama Point Bridge, Wind Drift Condominiums continue to be the sought after choice of families, both young and old, for their perfect beach get-away. Unlike may other condos along the Alabama gulf coast, Wind Drift is on a stretch of quiet beach neighboring a nature preserve giving our property the rare uncrowded beach we enjoy even in the height of the summer season. Wind Drift condos are low density buildings -- only 7 floors. You couldn't ask for a better beach view! Our 6th floor condo sits right on the beach and is just steps from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico! Our back door enjoys views of exclusive Ono Island- home of the multi- millionaires, and the numerous bays and rivers that abound the in the area.
Wake to the sun coming up over the Gulf coast as you beach comb for shells on our miles of wide beach or sit on the large balcony and watch the dolphins, pelicans, and blue heron as you drink your morning coffee. You may even see the Blue Angels practicing their maneuvers if they are in Pensacola. Spend the day in family friendly activities-playing or sunning on the sugar sand beaches, participating in water sports, golfing, shopping, sight-seeing or just relaxing at our beach side condo. Consider day trips to Mobile, Pensacola, Biloxi or New Orleans. There are marinas to take fishing trips or simply watch the boats come in each day. The Wharf, located on the Inter-coastal Waterway, features shopping, restaurants, a 15-screen movie complex, 10,000-seat Amphitheater and the tallest Ferris wheel in the Southeast. There are also several other family entertainment options with Waterville USA, putt-putt golf, go-carts, the museum at Pensacola Naval Station, etc. In Foley, you'll find the Tanger Center Outlet mall. There are plenty of great local places for a Gulf dining experience of every taste and budget or have a leisurely meal in our well equipped kitchen. Enjoy the night life in the area then return to the condo for moonlight over the Gulf of Mexico and let the surf lull you to sleep.
Amenities to enhance your experience include two swimming pools (one gulf side) and four lighted tennis courts. Wind Drift uniquely offers boat slips for guests, located across the street on Old River-you can even store your boat/jet ski trailer there or drop a line from the fishing pier! You can reserve rental beach chairs and umbrellas for the entire stay and savor your spot on the beach.
