Beachfront! The white sands of Long Beach await you just steps from this spectacular four bedroom three bath contemporary treasure with central air conditioning! Perched on the rocky coast with a view from just about every window of Long Beach, the world famous Twin Lighthouses of Rockport, or the open Atlantic… this is a vacationers dream! (For those familiar with Long Beach, this is the house sited at the south end of the beach, that you have always fantasized about.) If you want, take a break from the sun and surf and play some pool, have lunch on the spacious terrace or multiple "Juliet" decks with captivating views or stroll down to the local ice cream shop. The open concept main floor consists of a lovely granite kitchen with Jennair appliances and an eat-at bar for four, and of course, fabulous water views. The main floor living areas have many comfy seating options and there is a choice of three dining areas, which are all visible from the kitchen and all have views. Off the dining room is a cozy den with a big flat screen TV and bar, as well as those omnipresent views of Long Beach. There is an easily accessible laundry room off the kitchen for all those wet beach towels and also a new marble full bath. Have a good night's rest in your choice of four bedrooms on the second level. The master bedroom boasts air conditioning, incredible views from 2 sets of windows, whether it's from the comfort of the king sized bed or from the private deck. Ensuite is a full bath, including his and hers sinks and of course an oversized jetted tub. There are also three sunlit bedrooms, another king and 2 queens that share a newly renovated full marble bath, each offering exceptional views and relaxation after a long day at the beach. Venture to the third level, where you will find a pool table, a new huge flat screen TV and some of the best seats in the house to relish what is anyone's dream vacation beachfront home! Bring your cell phone as there is no landline at the house.

Reviewer Comments:
Having vacationed on Long Beach every summer we couldn't help but imagine being in the "big blue house" someday. Thought our 25th anniversary was a great reason to finally splurge on it. It was better than we had imagined! The views are just non-stop gorgeous. With the water all around,it felt more like being on a yacht than in a house. The light and vibe in the house and on the patio was special and different at each time of the day and we enjoyed it morning,noon and night. Don't miss the sunrises. Truly spectacular. Our family of 5 made memories to last a lifetime...

Manager responded on 8/25/2012:
We are so glad to hear that you were able to spend your 25th anniversary in such a special way! It makes our jobs worthwhile to know that we've made life long memories in our renters lives! Thank you so much for the review and we sincerely hope we are able to provide memorable experiences for your family for years to come! Cheers to 2013!

Reviewer Comments:
Windward's location high above the rocks and Long Beach makes you feel like a King Lording over his domain! It is truly majestic! Our large family group had a wonderful time and truly hated to leave. I would suggest that a little TLC be given to the home to keep it in the grand condition it deserves. Also the mattresses in the two smaller bedrooms should be replaced. However, the location makes up for other imperfections and will take your breath away!

Reviewer Comments:
Winward is perfectly situated on the rocks on the southern end of Long Beach. You are surrounded by beach and water views. Favorite things to do at the house (besides heading to the beach): fishing from the rocks, using a house kayak (one couple kayaked to Rockport), sitting on the rocks sipping morning coffee while watching the sun come up next to the twin lighthouses, evening cocktails and dinner on the deck. We had family and friends over daily; they loved it! The property would get five stars from me for general condition if the beds in all the rooms were equally comfortable (only the master bedroom had a truly comfortable bed) and if a decent iron and ironing board were provided. (Yes, we had to iron on vacation! We were there for a wedding.) I recommend the owner replace two of the queen beds with king beds as two bedrooms have plenty of room for the larger beds. (Try Ikea for comfortable beds at reasonable prices.) Our group of 4 couples would be much more likely to rent Winward again if each bedroom had the same comfortable and quality bed.

Manager responded on 12/7/2010:
Thank you for your review. And since your stay, you will be happy to know that one of the queen beds has been replaced with a new king bed! And there are plans to update the others!

Reviewer Comments:
The Windward was an exceptionally beautiful place to stay. The location is like a paradise and everything in the house is well selected and lovely. The rooms are spacious and inviting. The weather was not good but that still did not deter from the wonder of this fantastic home. We wish that we could have stayed longer.
I have two small suggestions: if the family consumes a lot of coffee like we do, that Keurig pot is not very practical. It is pretty expensive to buy those individual packets. Also, the mattresses in two of the bedrooms may soon need replacing.
Thank you for an extraordinary respite.


Manager responded on 7/10/2009:
Kathy,Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at Windward. We will notify the owners about the coffee pot and the mattresses. We look forward to your next visit to Cape Ann.The Atlantic Vacation Homes Staff
