Windward at the Beach is one of those places that makes you comfortable from the moment you arrive. This Victorian gem has been decorated with a fun beach-surf theme. You can't beat the location, just a block off the beach and very close (within walking distance) to shops and local eateries. Tammy and Chris, the owners, are great people, very... More

Thank you so much for your fabulous review! Glad you had a chance to settle into the Windward vibe and explore the beach and all that Beach Haven has to offer. And yes, we strive to please so there are many amenities that you won't find at a traditional hotel or motel. Hope to see you next summer! More

We are long time LBI -ers , renting houses each year. For this get- away we decided to try the Windward. We had always passed by it as we walked to the beach. We are so glad we tried it! Close to the beach, neat and clean and comfy. Nice to have the coffee maker in the lobby, and the... More

We usually rent a house in LBI for a week but this year couldn't. Windward was a great place to stay with our 3 kids. It was clean, quiet, had a warm feel to it and had many of the same amenities of your own house. It is very close to the beach and you can walk to fun activities... More

We came back to Windward this year with our little girl who not quite one. We had just as much fun with the baby in tow! She loved the beach! We got there for low tide and played in the surf for much of the morning. Only being a block away from the beach is key for naps, and there... More

This was our first stay at Windward and I can positively say that we will be back! I can not say enough great things about the Inn. The rooms are warm, comfortable and immaculate with great linens. Tammy and Chris are incredible hosts. Tammy gave me a tour of the suites and there are all beautiful. The enclosed porch is... More

Once again, Tammie and Chris provided us the opportunity to recharge our batteries, relax, and enjoy the best beach on the Jersey Shore. Stayed in Room 9, which is huge. Having the ability to cook breakfast in the room when we wanted and grill out in the evening after a day of beachin' and bikin' is awesome. He owners continue... More

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... More

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!
