From the luxurious decor, to the proximity to the beach, to the friendly staff, to the feeling of being home...Mainsail Beach Inn was perfect: a Grand Slam! We stayed in a two bedroom for five days in early August 2014 and loved everything about our ground-level unit. The place is so lovely and relaxing that we didn't feel the need... More

This is the sort of place I have dreamt of. I can't think of anything to fault. The location is on the most beautiful beach which allows you to see the sunset from your balcony/verandah, the standard of the accommodation is very high. The bedrooms are very luxurious and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped (except for an electric kettle... More

Great place for a family get together. 2 story unit gave the kids and adults separate areas to visit and play. Large kitchen and eating area. Nice pool and hot tub area. Not a large facility so plenty of privacy. Beach is right in front. Everyone was extremely helpful, especially Margo. Fully equipped with everything you need for a week.... More

My sister, niece and I stayed at Mainsail Beach Inn in May to celebrate my birthday and we had a wonderful time. We stayed in a 3-bed, 3 bathroom unit facing the pool.

Wonderful stay at Mainsail, Anna Maria Island - excellent property. We stayed in a two bedroom with full kitchen. The room was decorated beautifully with a high end beach theme. We ate at the Beach Bistro for dinner. The food was out of this world and the service was impeccable. We would definitely return for another visit.

The photos did not do this property justice! After-hours check-in was a breeze. Management was very friendly and responsive to the few issues we encountered. The beach location was perfect. A comfortable and clean inn with a great location contributed to the outstanding vacation we had. The outdoor showers and pool were refreshing after a long day at the beach.... More

We stayed at Mainsail Beach Inn for 4-nights in May. We had one of the spacious fully furnished 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom oceanfront units on the 3rd floor. The building was beautiful and our unit was roomy. There was an elevator so lugging our suitcases was no problem. The only complaint we had is how narrow the 2-sided balcony... More

AMI has some of the most beautiful beaches I have visited. Easily on a par with my Hawaiian visit in Maui. Puts Aruba, Bahamas, and Jamaica to shame. Ireland, UK & Northern France have the rustic, windswept beauty that I love to visit, but the Florida climate trumps the rainy, windy weather that is the signature of a UK holiday.... More
