“Wonderful Stay at the Windward”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

We stayed in one of the 3rd floor rooms, loved it, it was like being in a cosy nest! The room was a nice size and the bathroom had lots of room. Both beds are comfortable, and the quality of the linens/towels was wondeful. Terrific cross breezes we had little use of the air conditioner. The Windward has a great location, close to an uncrowded and well maintained beach, and many restaurants and a very nicely appointed grocery. Super easy check in and check out.
A couple of things: Since we were on the third floor and it is an older building, it can take several minutes for warm water to arrive, but once it does, wow, plentiful. If you are sensitive to morning light, bring a sleeping mask, can be very bright on sunny mornings, but it gets your day started that much earlier...not a moment to waste on LBI
We absolutely love LBI and staying at the Windward, it will be a new summer tradition for us!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. Location, location, location - you nailed it! So close to the beach, town and other island diversions. We know it is a bit of a hike up to the third floor, but couldn't agree more about the cross breeze! And, yes, it does take hot water a while to get to the top floor. We are working on it, and hope to have a solution very soon. Looking forward to your next stay - the tradition continues!

This is the third year in a row for us. It is our summer beach escape from the hustle bustle of NYC and recalibrates us every time.
Windward provides comfort and easy access to the beautiful Beach Haven beach (amazing water and sand). We always feel welcome and are needs are attended to.
If you like relax and go to the beach, come here.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a wonderful review! And thank you for your loyalty, we love having repeat guests return summer after summer. We couldn't agree more about the pristine beaches and white sand of Beach Haven. It's really a treasure. We are looking forward to seeing you again next summer!

The windward is a must when visiting lbi. The rooms are beautiful and have they're own little kitchens in them. You are litterally a few steps away from the beach and your near a bunch of little shops and restaurants. Tammy and Chris were very welcoming and hospitable. I definately plan on coming back in the future!

Very nice boutique hotel/inn with a beachy, surf vibe. Great location and lovely innkeepers. Although the place is older, room was clean and updated with nice amenities. Little perks that mean a lot: outdoor shower, plenty of common seating area, and keurig machine! Short walk to the beach, restaurants, and center of Beach Haven. Perfect!

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us a great review. You hit our vibe right on - going for the beach/surf eclectic escape. It's not easy transforming a 1890 Victorian into a boutique hotel, but that's the direction we're going. Glad you enjoyed our amenities, look for more in the future - we are a work in progress. Hope to have you back to the Windward very soon!

My family and I loved staying at Windward at the Beach. The inn is a beautiful historic Victorian lovingly restored by Chris and Tammy in a cool, modern, beachy way. Everything was clean, bright and comfortable. We took full advantage of everything the Inn has to offer- grills, patio, lobby, not to mention the beautiful beach right across the street . Time and money are tight so we were so happy to find such a bargain that felt like a luxurious get away and made everyone happy. We will be back next year!

Thanks so much for the review. So glad that you got to enjoy all that the Windward and Beach Haven has to offer. And yes, a stay in one of the Windward's super suites offers families a chance to get the beach house experience without having to book an entire house for a week. We are looking forward to your return visit this year!

My husband and I wanted to get out of Brooklyn for a nice weekend at the beach before having our first baby in July. Windward at the Beach was fantastic! It's so well designed and comfortable, convenient, and full of charm-- one of my favorite parts of this Victorian are the outdoor showers nestled away in the back. Walking distance from a grocery store, a great cafe (lobster rolls anyone?), and of course the beach (a must when you have to pee every 20 minutes). We Bar-B-Qued every night, and enjoyed the kitchenette for breakfast in the morning. Tammie and Chris were so nice and helpful-- it really felt like a (much more) relaxing home away from home. Can't wait to come back with the little one next year!

Windward at the Beach was just what I needed. The owner's, Tammie and Chris have modernized and created a warm, comfortable, relaxing, clean environment while respecting the architect and historic beauty of this inn. It is full of personality with warm touches everywhere.
Convenient to to great places to eat, Bay Village and the ocean an easy walk just across the street. I definitely recommend. Next time I will figure out how to add a picture with review.

Room Tip: Great view of ocean in second floor bedrooms
