What a wonderful place!

We stayed at Winward from July 3 to July 10, 2010. It was even better than the listing described. This was such a peaceful place. It was quiet and private. I cannot emphasize enough how nice it was to have three private beach lots with plenty of room to spread out. We did not have to fight for a postage stamp sized square of beach or edge our way through crowds. The beach is an easy walk from the beach house. The house itself was clean, cheerful, and equipped with everything we needed. Everything was in good working order, and there were very clear instructions on how to use everything. We had plenty of room for our party of six adults and two children. We enjoyed grilling out on the patio, and the outdoor showers were so nice in helping keep the sand out of the house. I cannot say enough about how helpful and accomodating the owners were. Mr. Ward communicated with us weekly to keep us updated on the beach conditions with the oil spill and hurricanes, and we felt him to be honest in all dealings. He was quick to respond to all questions and even called to check on us when we arrived and sent us updates on activities around town during our visit. The books in the beach house were very helpful in helping us find restaurants and things to do. I woud recommend this property without any hesitation. Some of our favorite non-beach things were Waterville USA, DeSoto's restaurant, and the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo. We did not love Lulu's; for us the food was just not worth the price and the hour and a half wait.

Nice, clean, and quiet. This is a residential area so there are no crowds. A great place to relax and get away from your cares! We appreciated having beach chairs, sand toys and a boogie board at our disposal.

I can't say enough about how beautiful the house is and how wonderful our stay was. The owner was so detailed, kept me informed up to the day of our arrival and then called us on the first day to see if we had any questions. This is a house that I would definitely stay at again. Tremendous experience!

My wife and I have stayed at Windward 2 years in a row. We enjoyed it thoroughly both times. The house itself is in great shape, in fact Don had just done a number of upgrades just before we got there. My wife LOVES the big tubs. They put our average ones at home to shame. The whole house is clean and well cared for.

One thing that is especially important to us is internet service. We often have to use it for our jobs. I am pleased to say it never failed us once. We also used it to stream movies on the big living room flat screen - it worked great.

The location is great for us. We really enjoyed having access to both the beach and the bay.

This is a great place to spend a vacation.

My husband and 3 year old daughter vacationed with another couple and their daughter the last weekend in September. We enjoyed our stay at Windward. The home had everything we could ever need..All we had to do was buy groceries and bring our beach towels! Don and Cindy have furnished this home immensely. We enjoyed watching college football on the big screen in the den, and the sofas were very comfortable...perfect for lazy days and lounging! The beds and bathroom were well appointed. Beds slept great and we enjoyed the TVs in 2 of the bedrooms. It was perfect for the little girls to watch a movie while going to sleep at night or taking a nap during the day. The views of both the gulf and the bay are great, and the beach is literally a short walk away. Having the cart was nice so that we could carry our cooler and other beach supplies. We appreciated the chairs and umbrellas that were provided so that we didn't have to bring things from home or buy when we got there. In all, we had a great stay and would definitely come back for another vacation here. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a spacious and budget friendly place to vacation at the beach.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beach house. It was bright and clean and perfectly met our needs. We had 7 people in our party and there was plenty of room for all of us. Kitchen is very well stocked. The owners were a pleasure to work with and Don even called us our first night to make sure we had made it there alright and to see if we needed anything. We rented a kayak for the week which was a lot of fun. The little grocery down the road was quite convenient when we needed to pick up a few things. We went toTacky Jacks 2 on our last night there. It is a bar/restaurant about two miles from the house and was a lot of fun. They had live music and a pool table and we were kicking ourselves for not discovering it earlier in the week. We probably would have been there every night if we had. I would highly recommend a stay at this house!

Our family really enjoyed our vacation last week! The house is just what we expected. It had everything we needed. The beach was just a short walk from the house. The toys, chairs and umbrella were great! My girls had a blast building sand castles and looking for shells. Ft Morgan is perfect if you are looking for beautiful, uncrowded beaches that are close to other attractions.

We would like to thank Don for being so easy to work with. He was so quick to answer any questions and even called to make sure we made it ok! Very friendly and hospitable.

Two For Two!

We stayed in Tennessee last year and now at WindWard and are two for two in being very happy with our stay in a Ward vacation property.

Both experiences were great; cleanliness, location, amenities, and the special attention our hosts provide by checking on satisfaction and answering all questions.

WindWard was great in many ways in making it easy to get to and from anywhere we went, to the beach, and even the air show by the Blue Angels practice runs. The wind was blowing the wrong way to really enjoy the beach and the water as much as we wanted as it created a pretty good undertow. But, it was great to be able to still cool off after a round of golf or shopping. We also enjoyed many great meals at different restaurants. Lots to choose from.

Thanks to our hosts for keeping these travellers happy!

We love this house near the ocean and walking over to the beach in the morning. It is so pretty and there really aren't the crowds seen in other beaches. We especially like how quickly we can get to some of the most amazing sunsets ever.
The kids really enjoyed the Netflix on the huge tv too.
Kristi was terrific in helping us navigate whatever we needed.

Our family had a great week at the Windward. We arrived close to bedtime, and it was a relief to come to a home awaiting us with clean linens on the bed! Not a bad way to start spring break! We enjoyed the layout, cleanliness, and amenities that it offered. It truly felt like we were staying at a friend's house. The Windward is very close to the beach, and we loved taking in both the view of the bay and beach from the house. There is much to do in the area, all within a quick drive. Thanks for opening up your home to us- we hope to return soon!
