A friend and I stayed here on a girl's weekend away. The location was perfect -- just steps out to the beautiful white sand beach. The condo was really clean and well-stocked. We loved spending our time out on the beach while it was snowy and bitterly cold back home. I wish

What a special place! We visited for a short two night stay in the middle of our Florida holiday and the only complaint we had was that we couldn't stay longer! The property is gorgeous and the condos are enormous with clean, crisp bedding and everything you could need for a

Six friends spent four nights at Mainsail and enjoyed every minute of our stay! The accommodations were perfect for six women....three bedrooms and two baths. Our unit overlooked the water which provided a perfect view of the water as well as the sunset. Dana, the

Our weeklong stay at the Mainsail Beach Inn was perfect! We left snowy, cold New York and were treated to a week of relaxing Florida sunshine! Our condo was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything Anna Maria Island offers. We were literally a few feet from the beach and

There is not a restaurant on site however there are several restaurants within walking distance or by trolley nearby for breakfast, The Bistro is right across the street and is a high end restaurant for lunch or dinner -no breakfast. We walked the beach in the morning to The Island Cafe for all the pancakes you can eat for $6 and includes sausage. It’s about a mile away. Then we took the trolley back to Mainsail or some days on to explore other areas of the island. The kitchen in the unit is equipped well and breakfast would be easy to fix!

Hello, great question! Waterline guests are shuttled to the public beach access point at 66th Street. The resort has their own team members on property to attend to their resort guests as well as their own beach loungers. They do not have access to the Mainsail Beach Inn facilities like the pool or restrooms as they have their own restrooms and a pool at the resort. I hope this helps!

Great question! We do supply beach towels for your stay so no need to pack those. In addition we have 2 new kayaks on site with life jackets that are available to use, beach loungers available at the beach and there are some children's sand toys on site. We however do not have coolers in the rooms. The weather has been beautiful and there are lots of turtle nests all over the beaches! Safe travels.
