A true treasure on the beach. The accommodations were absolutely beautiful. Great for extended stay or weekend getaway. Impressed with the decor and furnishings. Beach was fabulous. Not far from great dining.

Mainsail Beach Inn has a phenomenal location on Anna Maria Island. Our 2 BR main floor condo gave perfect access to the gulf at our doorstep. The condo itself was spacious and clean. The kitchen was well-stocked with basic utensils, and dishes but did need some cooking items, like baking pans, if you intend to do any baking. The most...

It is true there is no better view than from one of our beachfront condos, I have a hard time deciding which one is the best - the struggle continues!

We have been here before and enjoyed the place. We had been here about four and a half years ago. Great place for a family, has all the things you expect in your apartment. Easy to walk in the beach, have somebody to check when there are minor problems in the apartment.

Spent a lovely week here - great place to relax and unwind, beach right by the room, didn't need to use the pool facilities.

Just wow! Our three bed apartment (1A) opened out almost directly on to the beach where turtles were laying their eggs.
