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 are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay at the Windward in September of 2012. Not sure why it has taken a year for you to write about it, but during that year we've been very busy. As new owners we are going systematically through the house, updating rooms with new (and vintage) furnishings, upgrading electrical, and modifying... 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. We were able to save money by not eating out, not using the car, not buying beach badges, nor renting beach chairs and not buying coffee/tea every morning! The owners are the... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Sounds like you were able to explore all that Beach Haven and LBI has to offer. Our guests love parking the car and heading out on foot or via bike (rentals just around the corner). Beyond the beach, there's so much to do - or as you said,... 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. The vibe at the house with the enclosed porch and outdoor tables lets you feel like you're at your own beach house without the hassle of binging sheets, blankets etc. Tammie... More

My family recently stayed at the Windward for 2 nights in room #4. The windward was perfect for us!! It's 1/2 a block to the ocean, walking distance to lots of great food, and about 7 blocks or so to Fantasy Island. Tammie, the owner, was really pleasant and welcoming. The room was just right for us. They had beach... More
