Found this small property on Trip Advisor. I hope my review does it justice. It is hard to find, even if it is on the main street (Gulf). It has small frontage. Pull in the drive and you realize it is a small street, with beautiful trees and landscaping. on the north side of the street are a series on...

Over the years, we have stayed at Tradewinds multiple times; we have tried other locations on the island too, but none of them are as great as the time we have while staying at Tradewinds. The staff are always friendly and accommodating; the units are always in great condition upon arrival and it is a quiet location. There are also...

If you are looking to relax and unwind, you must visit Tradewinds. Lots of families and couples and EVERYONE is so nice and friendly!! Our unit was clean and inviting and we wished we could have stayed longer. The beach is white sand, the water crystal clear and refreshing! So relaxing!

There was a private fishing pier right there, chairs to sit on, could watch the fish. The pool was clean and beautiful. Beach across the street, not far at all. Restaurants within walking distance. Definition of...

This was our 5th visit to Tradewinds.We don't even want to try a different place because this resort has exactly what we are looking for.I won't dwell on the often mentioned "tropical foliage","quaint cottage style".But i can't say enough about the pool area.Plenty of space and loungers for when you want to get away from the salt and sand for...

We loved our 3 night stay so much in the beginning of May that we are back again now May 25-29th! We had a North cottage #18 and loved the size of it, the amenities, the ability to sit on the porch and view the Bay and the pool. Immaculate place, friendly staff.

We have been going to the Tradewinds/Tortuga for years. Love the staff, the grounds, and the accomodations. Old Florida beats the high rises of other Florida destinations. There is no place better to relax and enjoy the uncrowded beaches.
