We stayed at the The Winds for a quick vacation for a family wedding in late July. My family and I rented a "townhouse" which was three separate rooms connected to a main living area with a kitchen. Overall, our stay was great - complimentary breakfast every morning was good, ocean front always helps, and the tiki bar served very... More

Joined family for a mini-reunion last weekend at the site of my sister's wedding two years ago. The Winds is family-friendly, right on the beach, and the staff treats you like old friends. Yes, some features of the rooms are timeworn, while others look fresh. My mini-suite on the 2nd floor beachfront was superclean except for the drop ceiling and... More

Lovely little hotel right on the beach, beautiful grounds, comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Breakfast cooked to order was a treat! We have spent many family vacations at OIB in rental houses in years past and love this quiet little beach location, even in the off season!

This was a beautiful location. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. the breakfast was delicious and the free use of the bikes was a nice touch. One issue was that the hot water would go off from about 7am to 9 am when the resort was at peak occupancy. But we worked around... More
