We have been coming to the Windjammer in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea for 15 Years now. It’s perfect... small friendly complex. The grounds and units are kept impeccable clean, by a wonderful cleaning staff. Thanks Ebony, Carole and Virginia. The front desk staff will make you feel very welcome and make sure your every need is met. Austin and Bailey THANKS.. your the best! We look forward to our 5 week stay every year. It’s truly a gem and very special. We would move in if we could.

Stayed her for a week in January 20, with my wife and 2 daughters. We had a 2 floor apartment with an ocean view and we absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and seemed to be newly renovated. Housekeeping came through every day and did a great job keeping the place spic and span. Austin and Bailey(sp?) at the front desk were the best. Very friendly and attentive to our every need. We had a bit of an issue one night that could have ruined our evening, but Austin's quick thinking saved us from that. Met the owner a couple times too. He clearly takes great pride in his work and they all should. We didn't have a car, and didnt really feel the need for one. There are tons of places to eat and shop within walking distance. Although we did uber a few times to see some other areas (Boca and the Hard Rock were nice excursions). To and from the airport was very reasonable. Less than 30 each way. The beach chairs were perfect. Highly recommend grabbing one before sunrise and watching it come up over the ocean. I did this every morning and loved it every time. There are plenty of chairs to go around, so dont feel like you have to hoard them .. we never had a problem getting one. Took the bikes out a few times and checked out some of the neighborhood. Felt safe and comfortable on them. The one thing I will say is the rooms are small. The bedrooms and the single baths are tiny. The upstairs apartment was nice to spread out in, and the upstairs bathroom/shower was also larger than downstairs. This should not be a deterrent though. Walk out the door and you are at the beach. Walk over a block and all the food and nightlife is right there. If you prefer the pool, there are 2 of them. You wont be spending much time in the room. This is a great place and I would highly recommend it to families or for couples.
