My wife and I throughly enjoyed our two night stay at the inn. All is as described and there is an obvious attention to detail in all facets. Something we don't always see in high-end resorts or hotels. Well done! We would not hesitate to return! Skip Squid Lips (restaurant) as we found the food to be ordinary at best. A better alternative is the old downtown section of Melbourne. It's loaded with many great restaurants, bars and a brewery!

Found them online, read the reviews and booked online. Easy process. I then saw they had on site massage therapy and called to book that. Bonnie (the general manager) was very responsive and called me back w/in 24 hours to confirm our couple's massage. We checked in on Sun and were greeted promptly. We were given a tour of the grounds and amenities. Again, smooth process. Our room was large, so was the bathroom. All the bells and whistles are included: 2 free bottles of water daily, Keurig coffee at any time, home made snacks (cookies, brownies) at any time, a fridge where you can store your food or snacks and they provide complimentary sodas and ice. Since this property is beachfront, they also provide beach towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, even boogie boards. The property is large. They have a library of books and board games that you can use at your leisure. They have their own, private access to the beach, which is great; nice waves, very quiet and relaxing. The location is absolutely wonderful. We parked our car and never moved it. We walked to all the nearby restaurants nightly. The massage was great. They have a dedicated space for this which is very nice and the fact that they have this service was a plus. Breakfast is served in the dining room and they provide dry cereals, fresh fruits, coffee, juices, yogurt, 1 specialty home made baked good, cookies and brownies, then a hot, main entree. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because on the last day, the breakfast was "continental", so not hot entree. This would have been ok but it was the same exact breakfast provided everyday except for the hot meal. I think a better idea would have been continental but add in a bunch more baked goods to have a variety. Overall, we both loved this place and have talked about coming back and even renting out the cottage with the family.
Thank you for your wonderful response! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for the feedback on your final morning breakfast. As we continue to improve, we will use this to ensure our hospitality is at a five-star rating for our guests. We look forward to your return visit with your family!

came back for visit after many years, inn was great, a place just to arrive, having all the beach equipment on site makes it easy to just relax, had early flight and Bonnie accommodated us by having our breakfast ready early. Would highly recommend

My husband and I stayed two nights at this beautiful property. Very well maintained, super clean and wonderful views of the ocean. Bonnie was so friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and nightly chocolate chip cookies were divine. Good value. Easy to park.Great vacation and we will definitely stay there again when we travel that coast.

Lovely property & view was great. Staff was very nice and breakfast was very nice. The only real problem with our stay was the bed. The matress was very worn down and not comfortable.

We stayed at the Windemere Inn for our Wedding night, and we could not have picked a more perfect place! The rooms and service are outstanding and we will definitely come again.

Enjoyed every aspect of our stay. The grounds are beautiful, the main house is comfortable and inviting. The private access to the beach is beautiful. Also enjoyed sitting by the pond. Will love to visit again.

Wonderful place to stay to get away. Beautiful grounds and great staff. Easy access to the beach.

It isn't easy running a B&B and the personal touches that Windemere by the Sea put in place were exceptional. The staff is friendly, but the owner is human and shows it from our experience. This should in no way detour anyone interested in staying, it is just what you get when you have the absence of a corporation making things uniform and sticky.
We all try to our utmost to make every guest feel special and taken care of. I am sorry but I do not understand the last sentence and wish the guest had mentioned to me what the problem was.

We need a place to stay that would be able to pick us up at the airport. This place was amazing. They don't usually do a late night pick up, but Bonnie, the manager, was great and came out and picked us up at 11:30 PM! She then was great and took us to our cruise ship on Sunday. I would highly recommend this place. Nice, quiet and great breakfasts. Also have many extra perks such as beach items, chairs, towels, coolers, umbrellas, etc. available for free use for guests.

Stayed for a weekend skydiving getaway. Felt like staying at someone's house! Stayed in the main house in a spacious room that was very clean and well maintained, the Sunset room. Dining room for breakfast was very pretty and the food was excellent. Also, had beer, wine, and a cheese platter waiting for us at 5:00. The view can't be beat with the Atlantic Ocean across the street. Beach chairs and towels are available to use. We had a wonderful stay and look forward to returning!

Did a little weekend getaway for my wife and I for our first anniversary. This place was awesome! Definitely will be a return customer

We have stayed 2 times. Always an awesome place to relax in the jucuzzi tub the great bed with Comphy sheets the great location of the ocean. We will return again if in the area

Twenty minutes from home and it felt like we were on vacation. Our host was kind and courteous. They had a get together at 4pm to 5 pm which included homemade hot dip, multiple cheese and crackers, wine and beer with frosted mugs from the refrigerator. We proceed to the gazebo on the atlantic ocean to finish our drinks. We had dinner at nearby restaurant. The morning we had fresh pancakes with strawberries and homemade sausage balls. We definitely will return to this Bed and breakfast.

Outstanding accommodations, service and hospitality! Will definitely return.

The Inn exceeded all of our expectations. We only wish we'd have had more time to spend there. Bonnie was an excellent hostess. We'll surely visit again when the opportunity arises.

This is the most delightful place to stay. Bonnie and her staff make you feel like you are part of the family. The building and grounds are well kept and nicely decorated. The rooms are pristine and the breakfast is excellent. We have stayed twice and will definetly be return customers.

Love the location and room was outstanding and very clean. We stayed two nights and breakfast the first day was awesome but the second day it was average. I would highly recommend staying here for a beach getaway.

My stay was perfect in every way. The breakfasts were delicious. Lots of thought was given to the little things. Look forward to staying again.

Windemere Inn by the Sea never disappoints us. It's located on an amazing, peaceful stretch of Atlantic Ocean beach. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Bonnie and her staff know how to spoil their guests.
5 on September 20, 2016
The Windemere Inn is nestled between several residential properties so the beach is quiet and not crowded even on holiday weekends. Bonnie and her staff are wonderful, very accommodating and always ready to provide any assistance you may need whether it's a reservation at a restaurant or things to do in the area. On Fridays and Saturdays, there's a social hour in the evening which is a nice time to unwind and get to know the other guests. Her daily breakfasts are delicious and there is always a variety of homemade cookies, snack, sodas, water and brandy at your disposal. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels are also included during your stay. There is no extra charge. We have been there twice, first on July 4th and then again on Labor Day weekend. The beach was quiet. Being from Miami, FL it's a breath of fresh air not to have to fight traffic and the crowds to enjoy the beaches. I highly recommend this Inn. You will not be disappointed.

Windemere Inn by the Sea was the perfect place to escape a hectic schedule and take a time-out from life's demands. The location is perfect. Bonnie and her staff are professional, friendly, and very welcoming. Breakfasts are a major treat!
Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review - we hope to see you again!

We fell in love with the area and the Inn. We've stayed there twice and can't wait to go back. Bonnie and her staff are wonderful. The Inn is located in a quiet residential area and the beach is private as well. Being from Miami, we were pleasantly surprised at the peace and quiet we can actually enjoy at the beach. It is relaxing and laid back. We highly recommend the Inn and can guarantee you will return.

I wanted the beach, beautiful views, great food, a comfy room and a welcoming atmosphere. I got ALL of that and more at Windemere Inn By The Sea. What a gorgeous place to leave your cares at the door and just relax and be taken care of for a few days. Everything you could think of is provided for you. From all manner of gear for the beautiful beach beyond the pergola; a koi pond in the courtyard for contemplation; to the small kitchenette with complimentary sodas, coffee, teas, snacks - homemade chocolate chip cookies!! - and ice to chill your bottle of wine. Relax in your luxurious robe on the balcony with a good book and that glass of wine, while the ocean and the sea birds chatter to each other. In the morning, enjoy a gourmet breakfast - delicious and bountiful. I will want this again very soon.

It was absolutely relaxing and enjoyable and peaceful and best of all romantic ! it was quiet and very accessible to the beach
5 on March 12, 2015
This was really a fun place to stay. There is a relatively uncrowded beach right across the street. The Inn provides chairs and beach umbrellas to use on the beach. Some of the upper floor rooms in the main house have view of the ocean but we stayed in Wavecrest which was a good value with the winter special. The shower in the room was fantastic and we also enjoyed the pantry in the cottage with free cokes, water and coffee and cookies. The breakfasts were delicious. The staff was very nice and recommended a restaurant for us and then called ahead and got us a free dessert. Would highly recommend this place and would love to stay here again if in the area.

I have stayed at the Windemere Inn many times, mostly for business, and Beth went out of her way to always let me stay in my favorite room. Everything is so immaculate and clean, as well as beautifully decorated. Beth and her staff went out of their way to anticipate my wishes. The breakfast is outstanding, in taste and presentation. The pergola on the dunes with view on the ocean was so delightful, especially at night for sky gazing and turtle watching.
5 on December 15, 2009
I have stayed here several times and keep coming back because Beth is such a gracious host. She always remembers the room I prefer and my favorite cookies. She goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. Looking forward to coming back soon!

There is only one word for our overall experience here at that is "PERFECT". From the moment we arrived the Beth (owner) and her gracious staff were there to greet us and show us around. It felt like we were at a home away from home. The room was immaculate, and grounds superb. Everyday we would wake up to fresh coffee, delicious homecooked breakfast, wonderful private beach with all the things you need to go from beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, etc... After a peacful day at the beach we were welcomed with an all time favorite "Tea Time" usually consisting of 2 delicious desserts and choice of beverage (our favorite...fresh brewed ice tea). Not being from Florida we were unsure of where to go for shopping & dining, and the staff was very helpful in finding us wonderful things to do. If you are looking for the perfect getaway this is the place for you. Great for all! We will return for many more years to come. Thanks for making our Honeymoon a week to remember! Stephen & Michele Gonzalez

The rooms were beautifully decorated, comfortable and every need provided for. Beth, the Innkeeper was a delight I wanted to bring her home with me. The food was delicious and prompt. Well located, right on ocean and boardwalk. Hope to go again. Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds

The inn was truly an experience that opens the eyes. There is a vast difference between Windemere & the chains. Relaxing home away from home.

My wife and I had a wonderful and very relaxing stay. We were treated as royalty. Our room was super clean with plenty of room. We enjoyed our walks on the beautiful beach. Will definitely return. PS Breakfast was delicious.

innkeeper, Beth, is a warm, fuzzy lady who makes you feel as if you are coming home when you visit. Our family came with my husband and I on our 2nd visit and they too felt the same way! Crepes were superb!
5 on July 11, 2009
What a gorgeous place to stay! We walked out of our door and we were already practically on the beach. We were provided with everything needed for a fun day at the beach - chairs, towels, umbrellas, sand toys, etc. The food was outstanding and we loved having snacks and drinks available to us during our entire stay! (day and night!) Our room was very clean and the jacuzzi tub was an added luxury. Beth (owner) and her staff could not have been more attentive or helpful. We had an extremely enjoyable experience and memories made that will last a lifetime!
5 on July 02, 2009
I didn't have to ask for anything because my needs were anticipated. The rooms were beautiful and relaxing. Music, candles, bath salts, it was all there!!

This was our surprise destination for our honeymoon. It was our first experience at a B&B and we were extremely impressed with all the detail that went into making our stay excellent. The beautiful rooms, the food, and even the matchng fluffy white robes. Wonderful!

I have stayed at many B&B's. This by far was the best. Wonderful staff, very clean and at our service for anything we could ask for. Thank you for a great weekend! KD
