Understand this isn't really a resort. There's no pool, spa or room service. It's an unassuming, almost invisible, small four-unit apartment building with a sandy backyard otherwise known as a beach on the Gulf. The building is set back, so you get a feeling of privacy, even though the public beach entrance is right nearby. With an accommodating property manager... More

I wanted a personal getaway place on the beach for 7 nights. Sailfish is at a great location and the beach is magnificent. The accompdations are very clean and well maintained. The only downside is that the interior is very average for the price.

Saw this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. Very glad we did. The rooms were comfortable with the conveniences we wanted. Loved the sheets and towels and it was very clean. Loved the quiet private beach area. The staff was wonderful, helpful and went above and beyond. Best of all, after a couple of days... More

I am a local but love to play tourist (especially on my Birthday) with my sister who lives in the North Pole. I found this small and private resort after hours of online searches that do not respect your number one wish TO BE RIGHT ON THE BEACH. This one is and the pictures are true. It is a resort... More

If you want to be on the beach, this is it. Best location on Homes Beach. No frills,just a nice low key place for a get a way. We chose to have our meals outside on the patio watching the surf and sunsets in lieu of the multitude of restaurants . Jeanne, the manager is very helpful and does a... More

I'm couldn't agree more with you that the patio is the best place to enjoy your meals while watching the surf and sunsets! So glad you enjoyed your time - it is a special place. More

Stayed here for my birthday weekend with my husband and two children, ages 3 and 5. It was magical! Truly an affordable piece of heaven! Not only was it reasonably priced, but having a kitchen and a supermarket only 5 minutes away allowed us to steer clear of pricey restaurant outings. Plus, what can be better than creating your own... More

This is, by far, the best place to stay on AMI. The apartments are clean, the staff was very friendly and the location is perfect. We were able to sit on the patio and enjoy the gulf sunsets every night! The rooms were immaculate and incredibly spacious. I had an amazing time here and have already booked my stay for... More

We stayed here for the first time the last week of July into August and it was absolutely amazing. The rooms are perfect. The staff was so accommodating with everything we needed during our stay here. The back patio is literally right on the beach and we were able to BBQ and eat with the sounds of the ocean. So...

So nice to find a nice little place like this directly on the beach! Jeanne, the resident manager for the last 8 years, was so gracious and made sure that we had everything we needed. Even being in a non-gulf front suite, it didn't matter - we were just steps from the beach and water! The suites are clean and... More

Visited early June 2013 and though storms were inland, the beach was beautiful. The white sand is cool and soft, and the breeze makes it seem cooler than the actual high 80's. The Sailfish was wonderful. It was clean and suited my taste and needs perfectly. You are directly on the beach. Every moment is a picture postcard. The manager... More
