Why Kids Love It
Kids love being on the beach all day! Parents and children love to be able to easily go back inside, grab a snack and iced tea refill, change bathing suits and reapply suntan oil and go right back out on the beach! without the hassle of walking a million steps or riding an elevator. This lifestyle/vacation style is well worth it!!!
Located on what’s affectionately known to locals as “the west end,” life is a little less congested and more family friendly on the west end of PCB. You may not even need your car very much for the rest of your stay! (Other than for making runs to Buddy's seafood market or the Carousel Grocery Store, or to Fresh Market or Publix grocery store....etc..)
The Windswept Beach House is only 2.5 miles from Pier Park!! So you could walk, but the drive is very short!!
Whether you are looking for shopping, dining or entertainment – it's all right here at Pier Park!! With 130+ shopping, dining and entertainment choices, Pier Park is a destination like none other.
A beautifully landscaped outdoor shopping mall with festive, colorful Caribbean architecture, national chain retailers and unique locally owned boutiques and specialty shops as well.
This lifestyle complex has a 16-screen movie theater, well known restaurants such as Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, The Back Porch Seafood Grill, Dave & Busters, Hofbrau Beer Garden, Panera Bread, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Olive Garden just to mention a few - plus many others that are sure to fit everyone's taste buds.
For shopping, there is Dillards, J.C. Penney, Holister, Victoria's Secret, Old Navy, Target and the list goes on and on with a variety of countless specialty shops and a few grocery stores too. You won’t be disappointed.
Also at Pier Park are amusement rides and an amphitheater and tons of special events (free concerts!) in the spring, summer and fall just geared for entertaining couples and families! Pier Park is a perfect destination for families, couples, kids…and everyone alike!

Guestbook comments from the owner:
Windswept is right on the beach in PCB away from the resorts. Just a few steps through the dunes and you're on the sugar white sands. More importantly, you can see "your" beach area from the deck. (It's public, but you can stake your claim early each day.) The 'house' itself is most unique. The main building is a two BR, kitchen, LR/DR setup. The other three bedrooms are all separate and open outside to a breezeway that is part of the rambling compound that is Windswept. There are several hallways, alcoves, and other sections in the compound including a glassed-in porch between house and deck. Instead of a front door, there are three gates leading in. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. (!) This is all overseen by the genial owner/operator Bill, who lives on the second floor (with a 3rd floor garret). So he is nearby to deal with any issues, of which you might expect a few in a building of this vintage. Decor is standard beach/nautical, very unique & well weathered. Kitchen has new appliances. Note: Parking can be an issue. House only has two places and street parking is not allowed anymore with new laws. But Bill can help you find spaces nearby. So not a big deal really. A large bar/grill "hut"; two outdoor showers; plenty of outdoor seating and tables; loads of beach toys and gear; and a $5M dollar view will make your stay at Windswept unforgettable. Would visit again eagerly.
Our stay at the beach house was so PHENOMENAL. Starting with Mr. William the warm welcome he gave us upon our arrival. When I tell you the place was so clean all the rooms were very nice very spacious. We never had to go out and buy any utensils or anything for the kitchen as they were all there and then some!! The beach was just right out the door didn't have to be bothered with rowdy people. Can't wait till the next trip cause this was my 1st time to FL beaches and it won't be the last..(GOOD BYE MYRTLE BEACH, SC!)
We had an amazing week at Windswept. Bill the owner was kind and gracious and made sure we had everything we needed. The place has wonderful character and space which provided our family reunion the perfect environment. Having the view of the ocean off the porch and being able to walk out to the beach was fantastic. This place is perfect for all ages. I hope to be able to come back and stay again in the future. I highly recommend this place for your next vacation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is your house literally on the beach?
Yes! the house sits directly on the beach! You can walk out onto the beach off the patio. See the photos! :) You will be staring at the sand and the saltwater every day! People still ask us this question all the time, and all we can assume is that there are other misleading photos on the internet. That being said, We do not mind if you still need to ask us!! haha. But just to make it clear, this is the BEST and #1 feature of our property is that you get to live directly on the beach every day here.
How many bathrooms do you have?
Yes, there really are 5 full bathrooms. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with a shower. :)
We felt like we were in the Florida Keys.
The house is beautifully decorated and there was plenty of space for our family of 10. We spent so much time on the nicely furnished outdoor patio looking at the beautiful view of the beach while sipping on our strawberry Piña coladas. The outdoor grill was well used and provided us with a gathering place. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked for a large group of people. The sand was white, the water was emerald green and perfect temperature. The sun came out everyday and the beach was not crowded. The location of the property is very convenient to everything.
