About Us

At a Summer Winds resort, the opportunities are endless, the resorts are spectacular and the service is unparalleled. Summer Winds’ founders, Joseph Pat Joyce and Dawn M. Joyce are no strangers to the resort industry. Joined by partners Darren Abbott and Rich Dowdell, they collectively contribute more than 75 years of experience and success in the vacation ownership industry to Summer Winds Resort Services.

Since its inception more than 10 years ago, Summer Winds has continued to grow and prosper under this strong leadership team. Adding new resorts, establishing new partnerships, building a seasoned and diverse executive management team headed by Christopher Varisco and setting new standards in the vacation ownership industry, Summer Winds offers vacation opportunities to its owners that are limited only by the imagination.

As a testament to our strong leadership in the vacation travel industry and our commitment to delivering the highest level of hospitality and service, Stormy Point Village was awarded Interval Internationals Elite Status. An Elite Resort displays the highest level of recognition, providing outstanding vacation experience, with state-of-the-art conveniences, and modern features and appointments. In addition, Interval International also awarded The Chairman's Club Award to Stormy Point Village for a Top 25 Resort Performance Company Worldwide.
