This corner, second floor apartment boasts a beautiful view of the 2+mile pink sand beach on the Atlantic side of Windermere Island as well as wonderful light from 3 sides. The apartment has 2 full en-suite rooms, both with queen beds and one with an extra couch/day bed for a 4th or 5th person. The apartment units are steps from the beach and its own tennis courts. Renters are also able to use the Club at Windermere, by arrangement, which offers more tennis courts and a full pool. Dining and Bar services are available during the season. The decor of the apartment is simple, clean and fresh. There is a wonderful hammock for reading on the deck. This is a place to unplug and recharge the batteries. Intentionally, it is short on electronics and games, but does have a DVD player (and a small library of DVDs) as well as a CD player. This is perfect family or couple renewal space. The apartment has local phone service and high speed internet and wifi.

We are an American family with two young children that love this island.
Bosworth Dewey purchased this apartment in 1975
This property has been in our family for more than 35 years, but we completely refurbished it in 2000 after assuming management from the family.
This has been a great place to spend time with our kids and have few outside elements to distract us. We read, we bike, we cook, we talk, we nap, we picnic, we play tennis, we swim, body surf and snorkle, we walk on the beach and pick up shells. We relax. Totally.
Comfortable furnishings and tastefully decorated both inside and out. Well appointed kitchen. Clean, comfortable, and sturdy beds. Easy access to long deserted beaches and wonderful ocean swimming. Pool and tennis readily available. After 25 years vacationing on Windermere, 2016 wil be our forth stay at this property and we our already planning our 2017 stay.
Property owners are truly a delight and happy to accomodate your plans.
Our family has vacationed on Windermere for decades. For this vacation, we chose to rent a condo/apartment. The pictures on vrbo were very representative. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and, being the last unit on the second floor, was very private. The views of the 3 mile, pink sands beach were stunning, both from the balcony, living area and oceanfront bedroom. The owners were very responsive to my questions and very flexible on arrival/departure dates due to the last minute nature of our trip. This is an island to come and unwind, so we did not miss having a TV. In fact, that was a plus. If you cannot unplug, there is a TV in the clubhouse with satellite access.
Having use of the club was great. There is a pool/tennis/and dining room open for dinner several nights per week in season. Notes provided by the owner were quite helpful as well.
This was our second stay at apartment 40 and once again we were not disappointed. Spit spot tidy and equipped with all the comforts of home.
The ocean view from the living room and master bedroom is unbeatable. It is truly the most beautiful beach. We were lucky enough to see dolphins, sea turtles and lemon sharks this time. There is also a pair of resident pelicans that kept us entertained.
We can't wait to return.
The nearest shops are in Tarpum Bay (about 10 miles) and larger ones in Rock Sound or Governors Harbor (20 miles). The Club at Windermere, of which we are members and which our guests may use, has a pool, tennis courts and a restaurant, which operates 3-5 days/week in season. There are laundry machines in the apartment's wash house which are free to guests. Babysitting can be arranged or names provided. There is a phone in the apartment for local calls. We also now have high speed internet through wifi.
