The Winds is a terrific place to stay on Ocean Isle Beach. Our suite overlooked the ocean and we enjoyed sitting outside sipping drinks. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and very nice. Breakfast is included. The pool and Tiki Bar are fun too. Can't wait to do this again!

Booked for the week of 4th of July, Mr Garrison and Gary along with the rest of the staff couldn't have been nicer or more thoughtful! Everyone was wonderful, breakfast was great, room, view, and all was excellent! I'll be recommending this to many of my friends. This not the first time we stayed, The Winds Resort never disappoints!

My wife and I had an enjoyable anniversary weekend away! Enjoyed the Winds that we found online at AAA and was very reasonably priced for what was included. We will recommend to our friends:) The ocean front, pools and tiki bar were our favorite parts. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This place is nice. Great service. Clean. Nice rooms. We rented a cottage and thought we had it all to ourselves. There was one other room that was in the cottage that had access to our common areas. It turned out fine but was not what we thought we had rented. So each room has a key card then the... More

Dear Mrs, Thank you for staying at The Winds and thank you for providing us with your feedback. I apologize for the apparent confusion with your cottage rental. The “common areas” of a cottage are indeed for the exclusive use of the guests who have rented the house. For our cottages with 4 bedrooms, this applies whether just 3 or... More

We have stayed at The Winds on multiple occasions. The location, price and accommodations are perfect. We have always stayed in a room with 2 bedrooms with a pullout couch and full kitchen. We will certainly be back. We won't stay anywhere else.

We spent 6 nights with our daughter and her family in a Magnolia suite. A little cramped, especially in the bedroom with two doubles. This was a very hot and humid week. We needed to dump the dehumidifier twice a day, and the a/c units were running constantly. Breakfast could have a bit more variety since many guests stay multiple... More

Impressive beach with soft sand, nicely landscaped facility, fun pool, easy going and helpful staff, very good tiki bar food, etc. Get an oceanfront room and make sure to bring some Coronas, wine or a cocktail of choice. This place is not swanky, so if want to be pampered go to Charleston. This sweet spot provides excellent beach amenities and... More

Every single member of the staff were friendly, kind and helpful. Unfortunately, the rooms (paint colors, yellow kitchen counters, old appliances, dingy furniture, cheap bathroom cabinets, plastic shower/tub with some cheap repair jobs) were outdated, unattractive and showed their age. I would have immediately checked out upon seeing my room had I not been in town for wedding. The place... More
