“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

During our visit to Bandon, we found the Windermere (right across from the Best Western) and were glad we did. Stayed for two nights in a second floor suite with a kitchenette overlooking the ocean. The Winderemere is truly at the ocean - there is nothing in front of it but the sea and beach. Very clean, comfy beds, great staff. Highly recommend it. Leigh

We found Windermere to be ideal for our short stay. Beautiful location - close enough to the town but perfect for a walk on the beach. The room was well equipped, clean and tidy, and the staff friendly. On our drive down the US west coast, this was probably the best value overnight stay we had.

This is our second stay at Windermere. It is great value and the family are friendly and knowledgeable. Beds were great. I guess we lucked out the first time, as we had a kitchenette, which we assumed was the standard. This time the room (double) was smaller and the kitchen facilities were not as convenient. The location is fabulous, right on the beach, and the town is charming.

We took advantage of the stay and play for golf and were very happy with the value and the service. They were very accommodating when we changed our tee time.

We would stay here again but would request a kitchenette.

Room Tip: If you want to have any meals in, request a kitchenette, otherwise it is pretty tight...

We are happy you returned! Only 5 of our 25 rooms do not have kitchenettes. If you are booking online they are listed on our website as Double, no kitchen, no deck and Queen, no kitchen. We hope to see you again and will ensure you have a room with a kitchenette!

We stayed here this past weekend in the king room that had a fire place and kitchenette. The view is amazing, the staff very friendly and the room clean and well equipped. It was a nice quiet stay just minutes from old town and all in all a wonderful experience. We will be coming back as soon as we can.

My grand kids wake up and are having breakfast in the super little two story mini cottage on the beach. After pointing out a whale to them I noticed two rainbows . My little 5 year old Remi then said "Where is the third rainbow? This place is super clean with tight secure management. A far better choice than picking the questionable vacation rental down the the street with it's office in a mobile home off an alley. The private path to the beach even has clean up area with water for sand removal. Can't wait to have other friends and family stay there so I can visit them at the Windermere!

Room Tip: Wake up early full moon helps.

One hardly knows where to begin! Beautiful location, quiet surroundings, and just minutes from Old Town Bandon. Windermere is a family-owned inn and the owners were friendly and helpful. The "cottages" are clean, comfortable, modern and well-equipped. Our unit, a "king room with fireplace and kitchenette" was everything we needed. The views from all units are magnificient...patio or balconies provide a view spanning vast areas of the ocean and sunset. Wooden stairs lead to the beach where you can stroll in the tide, gather lovely shells and search for jasper and agate. Parking is plentiful and adjacent to the cottages. Upper units require stair climbing. Ice and soda available on site but no restaurant....so you'll have to drive into Bandon proper for a trip to the grocer or to eat at one of a number of excellent restaurants. The property has no pool. A great vacation spot for couples, seniors, or families who want to visit the beach without the noise and crowds of other beaches.

Room Tip: Our unit #18 was at the south end of the property, farthest from the office and the walkway leading...

What a find this was! 180 degree panoramic ocean front view from the kitchen table through the picture window. Fully stocked kitchen, squeaky clean, windows that open for the breeze, smell and sound of the ocean, comfortable bed, beach access, short drive to shops and fabulous sea food, helpful staff, room options such as a gas fireplace or covered patio...it had it all. I can't imagine a better beachfront stay. AND it was half the price of Brookings' Beachfront motel.

It was so wonderful we stayed for another two nights.
