The Windschief was the perfect place for my five night stay in Hopkins. I've stayed at other places in town and for price, location, friendliness and amenities the Windschief is my new favourite. It's right on the beach, Pamela and Ollie are available for any needs but also casual about everything and happy to let you do your own thing.... More

Loved staying at the Windschief. The cabana is about 12 feet off the ground and I could throw a rock from the porch and hit the ocean. I loved feeling the ocean breezes and hear the surf lull me to sleep at night. The beds are comfortable, the place is clean and has everything we need. there is a little... More

Everything about the Windschief was lovely. A friend and I stayed in the large cabana for 8 nights. The room is spacious and clean and it felt sweet to hang in the room. The bar is cute and everyone is friendly. It is clear that this is also Pamela and Ollie's home. It is well taken care of and you... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the big cabana. It was such an amazing place, the cabana was beautiful airy and clean and the view was gorgeous! Pam and Ollie were such great hosts and the bar makes excellent cocktails. We would definitely highly recommend this to other travellers!

This lovely little cabana on the beach was our little haven for two nights. For the price we couldn't have asked for more, as it's equipped with a fridge and a coffee maker.we seem to have arrived in Hopkins at a bad time, too quiet and very stormy. The sea was unswimmable and the beach was covered in seaweed and... More

It's the owners of the Windschief that make it such an amazing place to stay! Pam and Ollie and their family are amazing people. Pam's Dad Levi and his 1st mate Rudy are superb expert guides and really make any excursion with them extra special. The fishing/snorkelling shore lunch trip as well as the night time biolumiuous River tour are... More

We loved the Windschief, the beachfront cabanas were perfect, clean & cozy, just what we wanted. Our hosts, Ollie & Pamela were more than accommodating, helpful & friendly. We were adequately warned that Friday night was a popular night with late night music & we enjoyed dancing & visiting with people we met throughout the week in Hopkins.

How different was my expectations from the website to reality:but not in a negative way,just different! . For the money the small cabana is superbly and thoughtfully furnished and immaculate clean. I thought it would be more rustic and basic! I also imagined the crowd at the bar to be more of a mixture of travellers but wasn't but thats... More

that is probably the best spot to spend your time in Hopkins village, ones you are there, time flys by and chillaxing is on the Menu. Btw. they also run an Beachbar and serve excellent affordeble food to. The cabanas are very clean and cosy.
