The living quarters were little smaller than I expected, however the location was excellent with shopping, and restaurants were within walking distance, along with the on-site beach. The welcome basket, free beach chairs, free beach towels, and the free bikes were a great added bonus. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area

Excellent beachfront location. Well maintained property, pools (2). No charge loaner beach chairs, full size gas grills, and bikes. More. All with kitchens or kitchenettes. One beachfront block from Lauderdale on the Sea's "ground zero" of restaurants and shops. Only 8 miles from downtown Ft. Lauderdale yet has the feel of more underpopulated areas further north. Timeshares so availability is...

We had stayed here several months prior which started out awful but ended on a much better note. With that being said, we love the location and since we will be coming to the area a few times a year we came back to the Windjammer with the sole purpose of staying in the oceanfront studio, so glad we did!...

Lower level had 2 brs and bath, upstairs had kitchen, living room and larger bath. Assigned parking so no problems there, 2 heated pools when you need a...

We stay one or two weeks at the end of the year/beginning of the new year and plan on doing that till we are no longer able to move. Right on the beach, close to many excellent restaurants and close to Publix and to an unbelievable fresh seafood/fish store

I absolutely love the Windjammer. Own a week and have been going 10 years. It is very clean and rooms are very nice. Right on the beach. A bus that takes you for groceries. Walking distance to restaurants, Walgreens, and the shops. I never trade to go anywhere else it is like home. My family and friends love it too.

All rooms very clean, office staff was helpful with any questions we had. Housekeeping staff worked around our schedule. All and all, a great place on the ocean. Two pools, beach chairs with towels. Only steps to a number of bars, restaurants and shops.
