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.

Better each year we go!

  • 5 of 5

This place is terrific!

We are repeat guests at the Windward this year and couldn't be happier with the whole experience from start to finish. The owners are kind and courteous, the amenities at this rental are top notch and its great to have the convenience of the beach being so close. Personally - I appreciate the quiet south end of Ocean City, with only a very quick drive away from the boardwalk.

My four year old has had a blast here and is already talking about going back next year.

I admit that I was hesitant to write this review...the more people that go here...the less time I'll have to enjoy for myself!

Great Decor!

  • 5 of 5

What a great family house! Long time family friends rented this long weekend making fantastic memories!

Nice quiet location safe for the little ones with a short walk to the beach. We appreciated all the extras including toys and games to occupy the kids while we enjoyed our deck drinks every night!

We hope to get back to this house next year.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

I have to stay we thoroughly enjoyed staying at WindWard. The place is immaculate and beautifully decorated. We have three young adult children and there was plenty of room for us to spread out and also, entertain guest. We were more than happy with the location, just a few blocks from the beach, but away from the boardwalk so it was very relaxing and quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful week at the Windward

  • 5 of 5

Our yearly week in Ocean City was by far the best this year in the Windward. The upscale amenities in this home added to our Priceless memories for summer 2013. We were steps from one of the nicest beaches we vacationed at in OC. Our family vacations here yearly and we will look to rent this home again. This was our first time to the southern end of the island and came as a welcome relief to the hustle and bustle we've experienced more north. My wife particularly enjoyed the front deck at sunset with peaceful views uninhibited by other homes. We rode our bikes to the boardwalk most mornings for breakfast and than discovered Jimmy's pancake house was a block away. We loved the open feeling we got in this house with the vaulted ceilings. And with eight of us sharing space for a week we always had plenty of room.
