They renew long standing friendships and make new friends, too. Others, by enrolling with RCI, exchange their Windrifter vacation days and travel to one of over 4,500 RCI timeshare resorts worldwide*. Others, still, vacation with us each year, but choose to split their vacation days into a series of shorter stays*. Don’t have time to travel one year? Let the resort know, your time can be put into our generous rental program*. It is your vacation–you decide how, when, and where you wish to enjoy it. (*restrictions apply)
The Windrifter Resort Association is a not-for-profit organization that is member owned and member governed. The governing Board of Directors is a group of Windrifter members elected by Windrifter members. The Board is tasked with overseeing finances, formulating policies and procedures for the resort and its members. Most importantly, the Board of Directors and resort manager work closely to ensure our founders’ original promise of an affordable vacation remains intact.
As a not- for-profit, every penny brought in by annual maintenance and reserve fees goes back into the upkeep of the properties. These funds provide staff wages, property maintenance, services and amenities that are unique and relevant to our members.
The biggest factor helping our members have an affordable vacation is each of our units is designed to be beneficial for a longer term stay. Not only is there the living areas in each unit to accommodate up to a minimum of 4 guests per unit, but there is a full kitchen in every unit, as well. The cost of eating out on vacation can be prohibitive. By choosing to eat in, you have the opportunity to save some of that cost to participate in other activities that may not have been affordable by eating out all the time.
Without the people that come here year after year, The Windrifter Resort is just a collection of buildings. It is the people that make it a community. Many of our members boast of long friendships forged over the years of their Windrifter vacations. And they are excited to make new friendships when new members join the family.
Your Windrifter vacation is an investment that pays dividends each year in the form of lasting memories, friendships, and traditions. Whether it is second generation members returning with their children or seniors that didn’t discover the Windrifter until after retirement, the friendships and bonds are strong and lasting.
Being a member of the Windrifter is not simply a legacy of fond memories; it is a legacy of financial value, as well. We also understand, however, that over time, our members’ lives change and sometimes those changes may not be able to include the Windrifter. Should that happen, you have the option to pass on the tradition of membership by selling it or signing it over to a family member or friend.
