About James Ward

Hi, we're Fran & Jim. We’re the proud owners of the Windward, and just like you, we come here to escape. OCNJ has been our getaway for as long as we can remember, and in 2013 we purchased our first property to bring that same experience to you and your family. Our goal is to make your stay as welcoming, and relaxing as possible. During your stay, you’ll find that we have taken every step possible to make sure all of your planning results in an amazing, unforgettable visit. If you have any questions while you’re here, we’re only a phone call away and more than happy to help.

James Ward purchased this house in 2013

Why James Ward chose South NJ Shore

We are unlike most others. We supply so many added extras so our guests can pack less. Come and check us out. You will be relaxed when you leave.

What makes this house unique

The greatest part about this house is the sunset. The majority of the westward facing wall is large windows, allowing you to soak in the sunset over the bay in its entirety from inside, or outside on the deck. In the words of our guests, "The Windward is a vacation home without the uncomfortable beach furniture and feel." We didn't furnish our house with the intent to just fill the space, we furnished our home with items we'd love year around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Always loved Ocean City but, this vacation was the topper.

Jim and Fran you made every thing perfect for us.

We will visit again at the WindWard!!! This was truly a 5 star vacation place.

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(11 traveler reviews)


Absolutely beautiful! Even better than described.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. Just a block and half from the beach very convenient for enjoying the beach anytime of the day or year. The decor is amazing, adding to the sense of being down the shore. The house is very clean, the beds were very comfortable. So many amenities that save you from packing a truckload of extras. Truly a gem. Can't wait to go back !

Beautiful, Comfortable, Clean, Spacious

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in the Windward. The wonderful amenities in this home added to the enjoyment of our stay in 2016. Our family vacations here yearly and we will look to rent this home again. We particularly enjoyed the front deck at sunset. Our views were uninhibited by other homes. This home has an open feeling with its vaulted ceilings.

Beach house with a spa feeling

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the Windward in 2016 and we are heading back in 2015.

This place has it all.

Great location, short beach walk, the greatest sunsets, and all the best features to truly help us decompress from our busy careers. We believe we finally found our piece of heaven in beautiful Ocean City NJ.

A home that reflects the loving care of the owners

  • 5 of 5

It was apparent from the moment we walked in that this home is extremely well cared for by the owners. The many personal touches made us feel right at home. The location is great with easy access to more than just the beach - a nearby grocery store and close proximity to a large liquor store allowed us to pick up items for when we felt like a quiet evening in. We thoroughly enjoyed this home and look forward to our next stay.
