A few friends of mine had a mini high school reunion here. The owners (Tammie and Chris) were great hosts – friendly, helpful and willing to go out of their way to make us comfortable. We hit the beach, road bikes, shopped for beach dresses during the day (the inn is within walking distance of everything). Evenings were spent barbequing,... More

My family and I stayed here twice during the summer. During our first stay it poured for two days. My sons are aged three and five and were bored being inside. Having the enclosed porch with lots of games and books helped the pass the time. Tammie and her husband were wonderful hosts. They always had suggestions on what things... More

My husband and I along with our 2 children 11 and 8 spent a wonderful few days at the Windward at the end of August. We stayed in room #3 very comfortably and loved having the enclosed porch right outside our door. It is a great place to read when the kids are trying to go to sleep. We were... More

I recently stayed here with my family and found the place to be overly musty smelling. Our room ($385 +tax) was on the second floor, there is no AC throughout the Inn other than room units, so its quite hot and humid in hallways. My niece opened the sliding door to the closet which was damp and smelly. I would... More

We've done most rooms and room 9 is on the update list for the spring of 2014, with summer visits to a fresh, clean, and updated two room suite. We are surprised that you... More

Had a girls weekend in August 13 and had a great time. The owners are incredibly nice and the location is perfect. We really enjoyed the patio tables, grill and outdoor showers. There are also bike racks to store your bike and shelves full of books. We never really got to use the porch because it was too crowded with... More

We stayed here last year (9/2012) & our room (on top floor) was horrible. I'm thinking they have re-done it by now considering the good reviews here. The bathroom smelled really, really, awful - we think from the rug. The carpet in the bedroom was very dirty. They had a dark plastic area mat on top of part of it... More

We stayed at The Windward by the Beach for 2 weeks in June. You can't beat the location or the atmosphere. We had everything we needed and more.

Third year staying at Winward which discovered accidentally and it has become a summer tradition. If you want an extremely relaxed beach vacation this is the place to be.
