“Always a wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 22 August 2011

I love this place!!! Lauderdale-by-the-sea is a quaint and homey town, everything is within walking distance. It's really a vacation when I spend a week at the Windjammer. Twenty feet from the ocean, and two pools. My unit is always immaculate and the staff is friendly and trustworthy. In the evening we can stroll three blocks to downtown for dinner, drinks, entertainment, shopping and ice cream. I return home refreshed and rejuvenated every year!!!

I was lucky enough to stay as a guest from my daughter, Maria Schiele for the frist time at your motel WINDJAMMER, I had seen pictures, BUT nothing compared to the real thing. It was friendly, clean & convenient, It definitely was a home away from home. I am hoping to return, Mr & Mrs. Anthony LoConte

My family absolutely loves the Windjammer Resort. We have been staying there year after year since 2003. Every year we see how the management makes upgrades and its amazing how clean they keep the resort! It is close to so many things aside from the beach. The town of Lauderdale by the Sea is so quaint and friendly. The rooms are not extravagant but perfect for a vacation spot. One last thing is the staff, the women who clean the rooms are genuine, year after year asking how the family is and will get you whatever it is you need. Great job Windjammer!

We were introduced 8 years ago. Found a unit we loved and decided to buy the timesharing. WOW were we happy we did. Every stay has been great. The place keeps getting better. Location ideal only a short walk to center of town. it is "old Florida a throwback to the 50s--no high rises but plenty of good eating places within a few block area. 2 pools --never feels crowded. Very clean, right on the ocean, great staff etc etc. Can not wait to get back. Now own 3 weeks in December and 2 in May.

We bought a week right after staying here as a rental. We have been coming here for 8 years and absolutely love the place. Clean bright and lots of recent upgrades.
