“A little piece of heaven.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Me and my family stayed here during august and had an amazing time. We stay here for 4 weeks every 2 years and will be booking for 2015.
The apartments are a great size, the grounds are lovely and the family that own it are lovely.
The location is ideal as the beach is never crowded like it is in Clearwater.
I can't recommend this place enough.

It's great to stay where folks are glad to meet you and truly care about your stay. The property is pristine with landscaping constantly kept up to perfection. It's an older property, but the owners are maintaining it well. Yes, the furniture is a bit dated, but the beds are comfy and the appliances work well and are clean. The property is on the beach, so no streets to cross. (Important if you have kids) This family-owned motel is a gem in the middle of modern "cookie cutter" buildings. We'll be back!

We just returned from a relaxing vacation at The Sails Resort and Apartment Motel. What a find!

After reading all of the other reviews before booking the vacation, I wasn't sure what to expect...

Yes, the towels are scratchy. No, the furniture is not brand new and has definitely had a few sweaty sun worshippers waller all over it. Yes, there was aluminum foil on the stove burners. Yes, the AC units are loud when you try to watch TV but work very well. These things were not a big deal to us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Our room was much larger than we expected with a separate bathroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living room. The owner and cleaning staff were very kind and helpful. We brought our own beach chairs and beach towels because you cannot take their lounge chairs out on the beach. (I called ahead and asked.) They have a very strict policy about visitors and parking, but I was happy to pay their fees for the day we had visitors. The grounds are very very well maintained.

Great location! We were able to walk to some really great restaurants! The Conch Republic (which is delicious), Frog Pond Cafe for breakfast, Shubee Shack, and Friendly Tavern.

After a wonderful week, this place will be our home away from home! Can't wait to return!

My wife and I just spent 3 weeks here. The grounds were perfectly maintained. Room was very clean with a beautiful view of the beach and gulf. Georgeous courtyard with crystal clear pool. Owner was a true gentleman. Plan to return.

I have stayed at 4 properties in the North Redington Beach, Treasure Island Area since 1964. I prefer the older one and two storey apartment motels. Too many of these have been replaced by larger multi-story buildings, that in my opinion over populate the beach area. Sails has been here for as long as I have been visiting. Very clean, very popular. Great family location, quiet and peaceful. Great restaurants nearby, Winn Dixie very close for groceries. Want to try a great restaurant, drive north on Gulf Boulevard, it turns into Mandalay when you get to Clearwater, go to Heilman's Beachcomber for lunch or dinner. Also visit the Seabird sanctury a few blocks north of the Sails. You will have a restful experience at the Sails.

I just got back from this resort and stayed in the apartment with kitchen and 1 bedroom. First of all, location is wonderful close to groceries, resturants, and of course beach. Second, clean rooms and we really enjoyed our stay. Housekeeping was wonderful and cleaned our room daily- make sure to give those cleaning ladies a nice tip! Pleas keep in mind this is a motel so they will not have luxury amenities such As shampoo and lotions so bring your own! Not only rooms but also property along with pool are being cleaned every morning. You wake up to clean patio and clean pool. Also sun deck on the beach helped a lot during active sun hours and we did not need to leave the beach as we were always in the shade. Yes, there is a grill at the property and dinning tables so you can cook yourself and dinne outside. Green grass and nicely decorated property you really feel like you are at some kind of a nice resort. Keep in mind you can select and apartment or a hotel room there depending on your family size. We will defiantly come back as we enjoyed our stay.
