Windward at the Beach
Ranked #4 of 7 Beach Haven B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 July 2014

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!

Stayed: June 2014, travelled with family

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 in progress. Hope to have you back to the Windward very soon!

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 . Time and money are tight so we were so happy to find such a bargain that felt like a luxurious get away and made everyone happy. We will be back next year!

Thanks so much for the review. So glad that you got to enjoy all that the Windward and Beach Haven has to offer. And yes, a stay in one of the Windward's super suites offers families a chance to get the beach house experience without having to book an entire house for a week. We are looking forward to your return visit this year!

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! It's so well designed and comfortable, convenient, and full of charm-- one of my favorite parts of this Victorian are the outdoor showers nestled away in the back. Walking distance from a grocery store, a great cafe (lobster rolls anyone?), and of course the beach (a must when you have to pee every 20 minutes). We Bar-B-Qued every night, and enjoyed the kitchenette for breakfast in the morning. Tammie and Chris were so nice and helpful-- it really felt like a (much more) relaxing home away from home. Can't wait to come back with the little one next year!

Windward at the Beach was just what I needed. The owner's, Tammie and Chris have modernized and created a warm, comfortable, relaxing, clean environment while respecting the architect and historic beauty of this inn. It is full of personality with warm touches everywhere.
Convenient to to great places to eat, Bay Village and the ocean an easy walk just across the street. I definitely recommend. Next time I will figure out how to add a picture with review.

Room Tip: Great view of ocean in second floor bedrooms

We had 15 people spread over 4 rooms for a three-day family reunion. The owners, Tammy and Chris, make everyone feel more like extended Family than guest, and they were always willing to do whatever they could to make our stay more enjoyable. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and casual, and we really felt like we more more at a family beach getaway than at a hotel. The beach is a VERY short block away, and, if you decide not to cookk in your room, there is a good variety of options available. Overall, I can't think of any reason we would stay anywhere else for a relaxing, Jersey shore getaway.

Room Tip: Room Nine is perfect for a small family or group. Downstairs rooms are HUGE and open on to the enclo...

A few friends of mine had a mini high school reunion here. The owners (Tammie and Chris) were great hosts – friendly, helpful and willing to go out of their way to make us comfortable. We hit the beach, road bikes, shopped for beach dresses during the day (the inn is within walking distance of everything). Evenings were spent barbequing, watching the sun go down and the stars come out. We also had a nice meal out (just a walk down the road), but it was so relaxing here, I would have been content hanging outside for another night! We left feeling so happy and relaxed! PS the beach is literally right across the street. Roll out of bed in the morning for a great walk!

Room Tip: I liked the room I was in on the ground floor but I know families with kids like these too, so they...

My family and I stayed here twice during the summer. During our first stay it poured for two days. My sons are aged three and five and were bored being inside. Having the enclosed porch with lots of games and books helped the pass the time. Tammie and her husband were wonderful hosts. They always had suggestions on what things to do. The hotel is close to the beach and restaurants and there is a small playground for kids. On one night, we also attended a nice concert in the park across the street. I really did not have to use the car very often during our stays. Overall we had a wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: Room number one is great for families with small children.

Thanks so much for reviewing Windward at the Beach. So glad you enjoyed your stay (in spite of the rainy weather!). We love when guests utilize our porch/lounge area. It really does extend your living space. And you certainly earn accolades for grabbing the umbrellas and heading out to explore Beach Haven, even in the rain - with your little guys. May your next visit bring plenty of sunshine and perfect beach weather!
