“Great place to get out of the rat race”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

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 there I was actually relaxed. Recommend highly.

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 of only 3 units, 2 are in the front with the Ocean view. Open your sliding glass door and you have your private patio and the beach 10 feet away... Jeanne, the Manager, is friendly, extremely helpful and respectful. The place is roomy, absolutely spotless and equipped with everything you need. There might be several resorts on AMI but this one is the Local's favorite... no doubt !

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 A+ job. She makes sure everything runs smoothly. We will definitely return.

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.

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 BBQ clam bake directly on the beach terrace while listening to the sound of crashing waves and watching the sun set? The suites were nicely appointed with coastal decor and plenty of soft towels and toiletries. There was a TV and DVD player for mom and dad breaks (aka Disney time for the kids). There were sand toys, beach floaties and umbrella patio furniture--really everything and anything you could need. The owner was incredibly welcoming and made herself very available to us should we have needed anything. We are so thrilled to have found this place and plan to make it a family vacation stop once a year.

Room Tip: Stay in one of the gulf front suites so you can see the ocean from your living space. It's a mag...

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 next year!

Room Tip: Try to get one of the beach facing apartments... they're incredible.

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 perfect!!! We are looking forward to many more summer vacations spent here.

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 nicely appointed. All you need is your swimsuit, food (if you choose to cook) and sunscreen!
