“Euphoria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2009

The Sailfish Gulf Suites is to my soul as the salt is to the sea....incredibly soothing. This is the place I want to come to completely relax. To reconnect my soul back with my body. The smell of the salty air, the feeling of the sugar fine sand between my toes, the cooling gulf breezes and that glorious Florida sun. All on your own private beach. How could anyone want anything more?
The Sailfish is a quaint group of cottages located right on the beach Each cottage has comfy furniture and the rooms are decorated in soothing colors. There's also an assortment of books to choose from for a terrific beach read. Each cottage has their own table and chairs on the patio to enjoy the seductive Florida sunsets just beyond the sand dunes. There is a free trolley that commutes around the entire island of Anna Maria and it stops just a few steps away. My teenagers and their friends used this mode of transportation to go shopping and for ice cream.

I just love this place, and the manager, Jeannie, she's so friendly and accommodating, not "in your face".
I highly reccommend the Sailfish for your next visit to the best kept secret on the gulf coast. Enjoy!

wow. the sailfish is directly on the beach: there are no roads to cross, no paths to walk. my husband and i just opened our patio door and, after breakfast in the sun on the patio, walked the three feet to the sand. jeanie, the manager there, is friendly and accommodating and gracious. the apartment had all the amenities we wanted/needed, including a blender! the units are spacious but the feel of the whole sailfish is quite cozy. a nice change from the monstrous resorts we regrettably have found ourselves at before.
