About Owner

About Angela M Schoolmann

We currently live in Southern Illinois. Jerry is a retired heavy equipment operator & Rose still works for a company called Edward Jones Investments. We have a daughter who is married and two teenage grandchildren.

We enjoy outdoor activities which include camping, boating, exploring new places in our jeep and watching our grandkids play sports.

We have been coming to GS for over 30 years, having traveled to many to many areas and countries it seemed like our hearts were always in Gulf Shores and have met some of the nicest people in the area.

We have stayed in many places in Gulf Shores over the years some good and some not so good, but we had always walked by the Southwinds Complex but never stayed here and not for sure why. After stay here and meeting a lot of other travelers and owners we loved the idea of a smaller complex, the spacious inside and not having to fight for a parking place every time we left and loved the idea we could walk most places we wanted without having to get in the car.

Loved the views and all the new things happening in the area around Southwinds complex- WE HAD IT ALL RIGHT HERE!!!!

Home Away from Home

It was a little chilly during our stay but we were just steps away from the beach to see a breathtaking sunset each night! The owners have truly thought of everything (jewelry stand on the dressers, mat for flat iron, every kitchen gadget imaginable, etc.) Not to mention, the place is immaculately clean with beautiful hardwood floors throughout! Upon walking in my husband even said, “ Damn it smells good in here!”. We definitely plan to go back and HIGHLY recommend!

Family Spring Break

Our stay was amazing! We loved all of the fun things to do, and having the beach right across the street was super fun! We ate a lot of different places, but my personal favorite had to be Flip Flop Deli Shop. We are super sad to leave, bit had a terrific time!

Stayed March, 2019

So glad to hear you all had a great time and sad that you all had to leave when you were having so much fun, but I know you will be back, our condo is for sure in a great location sorta of a best kept secret until you stay here, and that is one reason after coming to GS for over 30 years we decided to buy this place
