My wife, daughter and I recently had a very enjoyable stay at West Wind Apartments, in late December. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Inside, the unit is very clean, with comfortable furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels, too.
Outside, a beautiful shell laden beach to walk along and lots of wildlife to see, especially birds.
Highly recommended-we look forward to coming back.

Johnson – McAllister clan have been coming to the West Wind Apartments to spend a week in June for 16 years.  We start looking forward to our visit about March and our plans grow more elaborate with each passing month!! The Johnson family’s love of Casey Key started back in the early 70’s and continues to this day.  Since our retirement in 1985, we have spent many wonderful times at The West Wind.  It never disappoints and we are always grateful to Debbie, Bob and Bonnie for being so helpful and gracious.  We are now at 3 generations that think of The West Wind as our home away from home. or as the 2 youngest say “Our Beach House”  See you in  June 2013.

Both of my parents, Ron and Pat loved West Winds. They would spend a month at a time spring and fall. Sadly they are gone now. But the West Winds is in the hearts of my sisters and myself. We try to get together and stay there in the fall. We missed this year, but will be there in Oct. 2013. CAN NOT WAIT! What a beautiful place.

My wife and I are teachers and have rented numerous places in Florida during our spring break for many years. West Wind is by far our favorite! We stayed here the last two years and already have reservations for next year. The facility is ideal…a very quiet beautiful gulf front beach, immaculate and not a high rise. Although quiet and secluded, West Wind is a very short drive to restaurants, shopping, groceries and fun places to visit. The owner is wonderful and pride of the long term family ownership is evident. If you are able to get a reservation here do not hesitate! You will not want to be anywhere else in the future and will find that the only thing that you will not like is having to leave at the end of your stay!

Our first stay, did not know what to expect.
Great place, very nice, friendly people, very clean and quiet.
We plan on coming back soon, and often.

People, MY family has been spending our vacation time here for over 50 years, having also traveled down the east coast and back up the west till we landed here. To say it’s special is gross understatement. To say the owners are is also; they built the place with their own hands and still maintain it as if they still lived there. In fact they live right down the beach and have become dear friends! I now look forward to sharing the wonders of this beach with my grandchildren every summer, or just with my sister, or my Mom who now lives nearby, or any friends and cousins who have a spare weekend…

Well, what can we say. We have been coming to Casey Key for over 12 years. Casey Key became our choice after an exhaustive search for “the place” in Florida. That search was a multi-year endeavor by vehicle down the coast from St. Augustine to Key West, and back through Everglades and up the Gulf Coast. Lots of nice places, but some are too touristy and some are too far from civilization. Casey Key was another place we were driving through and stopped to spend the night. We have never gone anywhere else since.

We actually found West Wind Apartments by accident; we used to stay at another place-very secluded and very private. But sadly the owner passed away and the place changed… So, once, upon our arrival, there were no vacancies, hence the search for an alternative and voila!!! We struck gold!!! West Wind Apartments!!!

Immaculate (my wife is a neat freak), attentive-yet not in your face, very hospitable but with a delicate balance of friendliness, politeness and tact. Reasonable-if not downright a bargain. I am not afraid to say this, since we have been coming there for over eight years and the prices have not kept up with inflation. This is not a chain; this is a property being owned/managed by real people who never wanted to be real estate magnates… This is their home too, and you feel it.

The only reason we say these truths is out of respect for the management… I realize that this place is a gem and am looking forward to sharing it with like minded people.

Come, enjoy, be happy.

Love, love, love, Westwind Apartments. Our family has been coming Westwinds for 30+ years. First my parents, then myself and family now my grandkids. I can’t imagine any sweeter spot in Florida. The location is perfect. Being on the beach is the best, walk out the door and stand on the sand. Walk to the jetty, picking up sharks teeth and shells and occasional sand dollars. Seeing dolphins and manatees, awesome! Sunsets are amazning. The apartments are extremely clean and very serviceable. View from the patio is stunning. Everything you need when on vacation. You can’t beat this private feeling retreat. Shhhhh don’t tell everyone!

This secluded vacation spot is like having your own private beach playground right on the Gulf of Mexico. Our family has been enjoying the West Wind on Casey Key for over 40 years and we have never been disappointed with our stay. This beachfront property is the ideal location to enjoy a wide range of coastal activities including swimming, biking, golf, tennis, fishing, watching wildlife, shell hunting, dining, or museum trips. The clean and comfortable West Wind has everything you need for a relaxing getaway and the owners serve as the perfect hosts. Once you enjoy the West Wind, you will keep coming back too.

I love this place! It’s really clean and comfortable with cheery furnishings and every amenity you need. The staff is great and the beach is pristine and uncrowded. I love the view from the Florida room where you can watch the sunset and dolphins. I would be tough to find a more relaxing place to enjoy a Florida Beach vacation.

I have stayed at West Wind several times. I think it’s the best place on earth to stay at the beach!!!
The units are so immaculate, GREAT views of the beach and water, only steps from your door to the water.
Great location close to restaurants, Shopping, the interstate and Airports.
Ill be back this summer.
It’s a great home away form home.
Also the best massage therapist I have ever had.

Twenty-one years ago I found the West Wind and have gone there every year since. Each year it gets better and is like coming home. It is a wonderful location. The apartments are spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. Everyone is so friendly. I can’t imagine going anyplace else.

We have been going here in October and March for several years. The beach and accomodations are terrific and the service is outstanding. Great spot, quiet but everthing you would want within a 10 minute drive.

My wife and I discovered the West Wind Apartments over 20 years ago—it became our second home whenever we could get away to Florida. It is a modest and hidden gem located in a non commercial area, owned and meticulously maintained by a caring “old Florida” family. Each unit sits immediately on the beach and the Gulf of Mexico with “in your face” sunsets. They are also literally steps away from the Intracoastal Waterway and the Venice Jetty, and lots of fishing and boating activities. Management is attentive and reliable. There are other good places on Casey Key, but this one is very special.
