My husband and I arrived for a much deserved week of vacation in April to find we were the only guests in this 4 unit "condo" directly on the sands of the Gulf of Mexico at Holmes Beach (not sure why but the sign out front said NO VACANCY). We had a gulf front unit 2 which consists of the...

We always found the Sailfish to be very relaxing and always enjoyed our yearly visits, however ownership changed in 2015. The new owners have raised the rates substantially and added cleaning fees and mandatory insurance. I am sorry to say we will not pay the new rates as they are too high for the condition of the property. While it...

We paid $3500 for a 2 week stay in unit 2 which is one of the beach front units. It looks as though it was remodelled in about 2000 and decorated at the same time, cleaning leaves a lot to be desired as do the cheapest kitchen fitments, crockery and utensils. The light switch in the bathroom is away from...

Understand this isn't really a resort. There's no pool, spa or room service. It's an unassuming, almost invisible, small four-unit apartment building with a sandy backyard otherwise known as a beach on the Gulf. The building is set back, so you get a feeling of privacy, even though the public beach entrance is right nearby. With an accommodating property manager...

I wanted a personal getaway place on the beach for 7 nights. Sailfish is at a great location and the beach is magnificent. The accompdations are very clean and well maintained. The only downside is that the interior is very average for the price.

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...

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...

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.
