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

Thanks so much for the great review. So glad that you had the opportunity to explore Beach Haven and take advantage of all of the Windward's amenities.

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

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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!
