When only the best will do, Windsor by the Sea is an ideal choice. An oceanfront house in the gated Cinnamon Beach community, it includes 5 bedrooms to accommodate up to 12 guests, making it well suited for one or several families. In addition to a wealth of space, the house has all the amenities you would expect of a world-class resort--and more. Hot tub, game room, pool table, gourmet kitchen, fully equipped bar, multiple balconies looking out to the Atlantic, even an elevator: So much luxury awaits!<br/><br/>Let's start at the top, the 4th floor, home to the sumptuous master suite. Actually, it's more like a self-contained apartment. There's the bedroom itself, complete with king-size bed, 50" HDTV, and iHome clock radio, and an equally lavish bathroom with both soaking tub and walk-in shower. There's even a kitchenette as well. No need to head downstairs to the kitchen to fix yourself breakfast or a late-night snack; the kitchenette is equipped with microwave, fridge, blender, toaster, coffee maker, and of course tableware. Once you've prepared your meal or drink, you can savor it on the adjacent balcony.<br/><br/>Hopefully you won't have to work on your vacation. If you do, though, the 4th-floor office is a lovely place to hunker down. As well as an Apple computer and a fax machine, it's furnished with a 40" TV and a settee, should you want to mix some pleasure with your business.<br/><br/>The 3rd floor is home to the open living room, dining area, and kitchen. The furnishings are nothing less than stunning, but they're also wonderfully comfortable. With 2 sofas, 2 armchairs, and 2 ottomans, the living room offers plenty of seating for everyone to gather and catch a favorite movie or the big game on the 50" HDTV. <br/><br/>Likewise, the mahogany dining table easily seats 10, with room for several more at the gleaming granite breakfast bar. If you'd prefer to dine alfresco, there are dining areas on both the 3rd-floor and 2nd-floor balconies. What's more, the 3rd-floor balcony has a built-in grill, so that you can cook as well as eat while listening to the waves rolling onto the beach.<br/><br/>Then again, once you see the huge, spectacularly equipped kitchen, you may never want to cook anywhere else ever again. Stainless-steel appliances, 2 sinks, multiple counters, cookware, tableware--the kitchen has it all, and it's all of exceptional quality.<br/><br/>There's a bedroom on the 3rd floor as well. With a queen-size bed and a trundle bed, it's ideal for a couple with a young child or for a couple of kids looking forward to a pajama party every night.<br/><br/>The centerpiece of the 2nd floor is the huge game room, which easily rivals any resort clubhouse. Pool table, 3 TVs, 4 roomy leather armchairs. and let's not forget the bar, complete with fridge, blenders, coffee pot, and Megatouch game machine. All that, and a hot tub on the balcony too!<br/><br/>A 3rd bedroom is on the 2nd floor, furnished with a king-size bed and a 32" HDTV. The remaining 2 bedrooms are on the 1st floor. Each has a 32" HDTV and an iHome radio. One includes a lofty queen-size bed; the other has a king-size bed, a crib, and a changing room--after all, even babies deserve to vacation in style! <br/><br/>As if this weren't enough, when you stay at Windsor by the Sea you can take advantage of the amenities of Cinnamon Beach Club, just a few minutes' walk away. Swim in the 2 heated pools, work out in the fitness center, take the kids to the "splash zone," grab a snack in the café, play foosball and air hockey in the clubhouse--and of course stroll on one of the boardwalks to the private beach. <br/><br/>Surfing in the ocean, swimming in the pool, gathering shells on the beach, soaking in the hot tub, chilling on the balcony with family and friends: At Windsor by the Sea, you can do it all, in the utmost of style. Treat yourself to an extraordinary experience; book your stay today.
Additional amenities include: biking, beach, fishing, washer / dryer.

Gorgeous home! The beach is awesome. The bar area with the pool table is a great place to entertain. The only downfall is that this home was obviously not originally intended as a 3-bedroom home. No closet space, and absolutely no place in bathrooms or around pool to hang towels or bathing suits. And although there are lots of tv's, there really is no place where everyone can sit together and watch a movie. Those are petty complaints - we had great weather and a great time!

The house is beautiful, right on the beach, quiet neighborhood and immaculate. However, we were under the impression that this home had several bedrooms based on it's size and the number of beds listed. This is a one bedroom house which is the master-- it is very large with a nice master bath and it's own balcony. The other beds in the house are placed in rooms that are not bedrooms. There are bunk beds in the media room, a Murphy bed in the study, and a queen with another bunk put in a room next to the game room.

This is an absolutely gorgeous rental and well appointed.While the master suite and common areas are a+++ the guest rooms while beautiful are not very functional. These rooms were originally offices or media rooms where beds were installed and I think they are not practical for visitors (ie no closets, side tables, nearby bathrooms). I cannot say enough about how wonderful the rest of this home is- gorgeous views, lovely furniture, amazing pool area- but the guest bedrooms are enough to deter us from renting again for our large family. Great rental for 2 or 4 guests. This does only have 3 not 4 bathrooms which was also an issue as it was advertised differently.
