About

Northwind has two mid-JUNE weeks available at reduced rates!! This one-of-a-kind custom home on the 4x4 beach has some pretty fantastic spaces. The delightful design offers the main house with three bedrooms and the "Villa" with a fourth bedroom, independent kitchen and bath. This set up allows one couple to get away from it all if desired!! A novel approach to the very real possibility that someone in the group will need more [sleep? - quiet? - privacy? - fill in the blank! ] Find the link to the Villa 3d tour in the dining room doorway of the 3D tour of the main house.
The main house has three levels with ground level entrance and two additional floors. Up the stairs to the right, level two offers a huge oceanfront living space with kitchen, dining, living room, laundry and half bath. Go to the left at the top of those stairs and you're in the king bedroom with private bath and deck access. There is a hot tub on this level on the northeast level two deck. Upstairs to level three you'll find an oceanfront living space with couch, tv and deck with fantastic oceanfront views. Two bedrooms behind this living area offer two Queens in one room and a King with twin trundle in the other. These two rooms have their own private half bath (toilet and sink) but there is an access from either side to get into the "shower room".

"Villa" is connected to the main house by the level two deck. This tiny house is situated to the south of the main house and offers a small living space with sleeper sofa, kitchenette, full bath and a loft with queen bed. Perfect for a young couple or small family. See the 3D tour here:

Enjoy the large private pool on the ocean side of this lovely home, with ample seating and either gas or charcoal grill. Walkways/ boardwalk between the house, pool and outside shower mean no sandy feet from pool to living room!! :-)

Northwind is a dreamy place, with so many spaces for gathering or for solitude. Come enjoy the oceanfront experience; crashing waves, soft ocean breezes and blue expanses from every level of Northwind and Villa. The huge number of stars in the sky and the moon rising over the ocean will remind you of how grand the world is and how lucky you are to be right where you are.

Saturday Check in - 4 Wheel Drive Required - Linens and Towels Provided - Approximately 7 miles up the 4x4 beach. No pets! Hot tub and pool open Mid May to late September. Parking at the house is free and unlimited. Guests will borrow the two season passes for parking on the beach. No graduation or event groups of any kind are allowed in our homes.

We had great communication ahead of our stay and throughout our stay. The house is very clean. It feels very new. The upstairs bedrooms are extremely spacious. The shared shower between the two is a nice feature so that both rooms had a primary suite feel. The kitchen was large! There was also a second refrigerator/ freezer in the laundry room. My mother stayed in the villa. She enjoyed the feel of having her own escape when she went to bed. One note... the steps to the bed of the loft are extremely steep. The loft is not very spacious but perfect for the villa. The pool was warm! The horses were near daily! The beach is beautifully right in your view. You do have to walk out front and around the corner versus straight out to the beach because of the dunes. We enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets each day!

Manager's Response

THANKS for your nice review! Northwind and The Villa are a perfect fit for your family. I think The Villa is my spot as well. Let all the activities happen while I sleep in!!

There is a path off to the right of the house over the dune in front. You should've called me!! LOL NEXT TIME! Hope you will come again!

We needed a week away just to rest from the busy world. This was perfect!! We shut ourselves off and just enjoyed each other and God’s creation. This house was so perfect. Placed right by the water with a pool and hot tub. The owner has the house well stocked and the house is just gorgeous. We saw wild horses almost everyday. The sunrises and sunsets were my favorite! We hope to return in the future to make more memories.

Manager's Response

And we would welcome you. :-) So glad you and your family enjoyed Northwind and the Villa. The house was a perfect fit for your family. I know the kids created some memories and the Villa was a nice respite from all the hubbub for your father. I hope he didn't mind being compared to Bryan Cranston, the resemblance was a little uncanny. Funny that he had no idea who that was.!! :-)

Please do come again!! We'd love to have you.

Gorgeous House but with Design Issues

We stayed here with our family of five, including three adult children. The house was brand-new and decorated beautifully. The check in was super easy. The bedrooms in the main house were all great sizes and very spacious. We also loved the large deck and the hot-tub. However, there were also some significant design flaws. In the first floor master, the open shower was large and wonderful, but if not using the rain shower head, the handheld shower head sprayed water everywhere all over the bathroom floor due to no shower curtain or door. The upstairs shower was enormous. However, because it is shared by two rooms, it would've been better to have two separate, smaller showers. There were no blinds or curtains on the vast majority of windows, and the houses next door could look straight into the bedrooms and bathrooms.While the villa was gorgeous and it was very nice having a second fully stocked kitchen, there were also some major issues. First, the bed is on a second level within the villa, and the stairs are very, very steep. They would not be safe for young children or grandparents. We loved the idea of having a separate space for in-laws to come down with a family, but would worry about the safety of any older adults or children on the stairs. Additionally, the shower in the villa is very small, and the door is arranged such that the door opens inward into the shower. This means you had to open the shower door into the shower, step into the shower, squish against the back wall, and pull the shower door across your body to close it. Only our youngest daughter was able to step into the shower without being shoved into the back corner, and my husband physically could not get into the shower and close the door. A simple fix would be a door that opens outward. It was wonderful seeing the horses nightly and lots of peace and quiet, but very difficult to get to the rest of the island (an hour each way), so do your grocery shopping ahead of time.

Manager's Response

Thank you for your review. We're so glad you had a great stay.


The bathrooms you mention in your review do not have design flaws. But you do have to use them correctly. The Villa shower door pulls OUT, so pushing it IN means you won't have room to move around as you discovered. I wish you had called me to investigate that for you! The main bedroom shower in Northwind is completely tiled around the walk in shower. You can allow the water to pelt away and it won't harm anything. The hand held portion of the shower can be directed wherever you want. Upstairs, the shared shower is unusual, yes, but it works perfectly for those two rooms. The owners love it, and it fits their needs. I want to mention that there is a hot water shower outside that is perfectly delightful. It is enclosed with enough walls for privacy but you are showering with the ocean breeze sweeping in. It is quite an experience to get an outside shower and once you do, you may never go back inside! ;-) ALSO since your departure, there is now a deck walkway between the pool, the outside shower and stairs up to the house. It makes sandy feet a thing of the past!


The curtains in those bedrooms have been installed!! Thanks!


The stairs in the Villa meet the local building code and there is a handrail all the way up. So sorry you found them uncomfortable. I think the Villa is the perfect spot for a couple that wants some privacy. There are three other bedrooms in this home.... choose your own adventure.


The owners of this home created a space they love; they made every decision with painstaking consideration. While it might not have jived with your tastes, it is their masterpiece.
