Updated with Style
Tradewinds East recently underwent renovations this year worthy of being featured in a magazine. The common area is wide open, letting the living room flow into the kitchen, and is accented with shiplap walls reminiscent of the nautical environment. Plank vinyl flooring throughout the duplex also makes the space feel warm, homey and classic.
Starting in the kitchen, you’ll find open counter space for prepping meals and trendy white cabinets that stretch to the top of the ceiling with an aqua-colored tile backdrop. Cooking also is made easy with state-of-the-art appliances including a French door refrigerator and glass top range. The counter that looks out into the common space also has counter-height seating for three with barstools.
The living room is cozy with plush sofas that face a large mounted HDTV. The coastal décor theme flows back to a reading nook in the common space where you’ll find wicker chairs nestled next to each other in front of two large picture windows. The dining room features an antique-style table with seating for six guests.
Tradewinds East also helps you stay connected with high-speed wireless Internet throughout and SmartTVs in the living room and bedrooms meaning you can bring your favorite streaming services along for your trip. On the second level of the duplex with access from two of the bedrooms is the outdoor deck that has sweeping views of the water making this spot great for relaxing and unwinding. This deck can be closed off from the other side of the duplex for added privacy. The front ground floor of the property also has porch furniture including a porch swing and outdoor sofas.
As you venture outdoors, you can take advantage of the outdoor gas grill and cook up a delicious barbecue or cookout. This property also keeps arrangements simple and easy with a washer and dryer set, dishwasher and Island Club linens provided.
With three bedrooms and a bonus room, there is plenty of space for a decent-sized group or family. Tradewinds East has one king-size bed, two queen-size beds and a bunk bed that has a full-size bed on the bottom and a twin-size bunk on top. The bedrooms also have wall-mounted TVs if you’re the type who likes to catch a flick before bed or put music on from your favorite streaming service. The master bedroom suite features a raised king-size bed with built-in storage on the bottom. This suite also has deck access with water views from the glass doors. The private luxurious spa-like bathroom has a glass door shower/tub combo and there are matching his and her vanity sinks.
The other two bedrooms have queen-size beds that are beautifully decorated with the same nautical accents featured throughout the duplex. These rooms have plenty of natural light that pours into the room for a natural wakeup call to a Crystal Coast sunrise. The final room with the bunk bed is great for younger guests and provides a small sitting area as well.
