Staying at Mainsail Beach Inn has always been a dream of mine. We were finally able to make this dream come true for our family's spring break this year. Our townhome (Unit 12) was absolutely beautiful, clean, and perfect for our family. We had plenty of space to spread out, but the inviting living room, kitchen, and balcony brought us back together after decompressing from busy beach and pool days. Our favorite spot in Unit 12 is the huge balcony that overlooks the pool. You can also see part of the gulf - not a huge part, but enough to see the sparkling water! What a great place for an evening coctail after putting the kids to bed! The property is very well-maintained, and you just can't beat the easy access to the beach. We used the beach chairs daily, and checking them out was fast and painless - you just visit the lobby and ask for as many as you need, and they immediately walk out to unlock them for you! No waiting at all! We didn't check out any of the paddle boats or kayaks, but we saw plenty of people who did, and it also seemed very easy and fun. Anytime we had any questions or needed something, they staff were so quick and responsive! GREAT customer service! We really loved unwinding at the pool and hottub after a long beach day. Nicely maintained, lots of places to sit, tables to picnic at, and lots of pool floats were provided! This was the best beach trip our family has ever been on, and we will defintely be back. Unit 12 is our new favorite beach home away from home!

We have just returned from our second vacation at the Mainsail Beach Inn. Once again we were delighted with our stay and found it hard to leave. The onsite property management team, Mary, Manny and Lindsay, are so helpful and friendly and provide excellent service. Even in this Covid time, we felt comfortable during our entire stay. We arrived late our first day and found the lights on in our suite of rooms and fresh cookies and doughnuts waiting for us along with the amazing views. What a welcome! We highly recommend and cannot wait to return to the Mainsail!

We recently stayed at the Mainsail in August. We were down there to get married ( at a different location.. no weddings on the beach by the Mainsail ) we booked unit 8.. ocean front. WOW !!! Is all we could say when we walked in. It was absolutely beautiful and our view... priceless!! These are some of our views!!! The place was clean and staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was very spacious.. it accommodates our family perfectly ( 2 adults and 4 children ) we cannot wait to revisit next year!!!!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Anna Marie Island. We were looking for a place that was relatively quiet and socially distanced. Holmes beach was perfect! The staff at Mainsail Beach inn was super helpful from making the reservation to ensuring that we had a comfortable stay while we were there. We were impressed with the overall facility, the spacious rooms and storage space in the units, all the furnishings, and most of all by the considerate and friendly staff! Highly recommend!

Just returned from our first trip to Anna Maria Island and the Mainsail Beach Inn. It was a great experience. Beautiful accommodations. Great location. The onsite property managers and their teams could not have been more friendly and/or accommodating. It's not around-the-clock concierge service but it was as much or more than I'd normally expect from a small condo complex. For example, we discovered late one afternoon that our AC had gone out and informed the Manager just as she was getting ready to go home for the evening. She had been there all day and ended up staying until after 9pm to make sure that the HVAC crew was monitored while they worked to get our AC working again before we got home from dinner. Anything we asked for or needed such as paper towels or soap was brought to us within minutes of us asking. Thank you, Mary, Lindsay and Team! We wanted a beachfront room and I worked with the staff before booking to be sure I was getting what I wanted. I can see how there could be confusion with regard to that so be sure to call Mainsail before booking. When I called, the manager gave me a detailed review of each of the available rooms and the pros and cons of each. The service is great from these guys. Just gotta ask. Our condo was beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped. Ice maker made ice. Washer and dryer worked just fine. Towels, linens etc. were in great shape. Everything that Mainsail could control was great. Anna Maria Island/Holmes Beach is a very casual/very beachy/very family oriented destination. We didn't see any place on the island that looked nicer than the Mainsail Beach Inn. I highly doubt there's anywhere with better onsite service than what you'll get from Mary, Lindsay and Manny.
