I have been going to The Winds since I was in diapers. Now at 23, my family and I would only call The Winds our true second home. For 5 years in a row my family and three other families all vacationed the same week here. Kids of all ages. One thing was across the board though-- everyone had a... More

My wife & I spent another 4 days at The Winds in September and, as usual, this place is perfect for us. She & I have stayed here many times over the last 20 years & it's the only resort we would ever stay in at Ocean Isle Beach. The breakfast food is great & the kitchen/dining staff are always... More

Stayed at the Winds for a wedding and had a very nice time! The accomodations are beautiful; the staff were extremely helpful and the Tiki Bar was both accomodating and enjoyable! I would very much like to spend some more time there in the future!

I have stayed here a few times and the location is good. It is tucked away and not near the main street. I like the homey and comfortable feel ths location provided. We walked on the beach and had a very relaxing vacation. The rooms were nice and staff was extremely helpful

We just arrived to the Wonds today. The beach is beautiful, the location nice, but the resort is not what I expected. My hopes were for something much nicer. I wish I would have know that this place was such a smoker-friendly resort. While the rooms say "non-smoking" inside, that feels like a joke. We have heavy smokers on both... More

This really is an old sneakers kind of place! The beach is wonderful, the breakfast buffet excellent and all the staff we had dealings with were extremely helpful and very kind.

Was visiting for a friends wedding. We checked in on a thursday night right after a rain storm. The sliding glass doors were leaking all around it so the carpet was soaked. When I say soaked, it was if half a dozen people completed the ice bucket challenge in the room. I called the front desk, they were fully booked... More

My husband, 7 month old son and myself visited The Winds this weekend. We had a wonderful time. We have decided to try and return next year but will definitely opt for an oceanfront room! The short walk from our room to the beach/pool/etc was no big deal but it would have been nice to be on the ocean! Breakfast... More

A little pricey but it was a nice stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Positives are proximity to beach and staff. Negatives are the pools are not very big and limited for laying out, especially the secondary pool which has zero lounge chairs amazingly.

I am here now enjoying my second day. I wish we would have gotten ocean front (709 garden) but maybe next time. The only thing I don't like so far is hearing everything in the unit next to me. The staff are friendly and the room is very clean.
