We just got back from our annual family vacation from the Windrift. I just love this place and am embarrased to admit we never made it to the beach with our four year old. Our whole clan rents the 3BR and 4BR condos and they provide cleaning and linen service every day. WAY better than a beach house. They just redid the pool and it's terrific. It's this nifty salt water pool with a graduated decline and seating around the edges and it's not over 5 feet, so it's perfect for families. Plus, get this, they have umbrellas in the shallow end. You can stand (or sit) while you help the ones with the floaties and the older kids and adults don't feel like it's a kiddie pool. It's beautiful. I usually don't enjoy going on the pool in general because the chlorine does a number on my hair and skin -- this is salt water. I was in there with our son 3-4 hours a day and had almost as much fun as my son did. The staff is very friendly. At night, the Windrift is a popular bar/restaurant so if you go with your family like we did, you can take turns with the kids and enjoy the music and food. It's quiet at night, the beach is about 50 yards away and there is a playground across the street. Can't beat the location, the pool, and the staff. A great place.
