To be able to step through sliding glass doors from your living room directly onto a patio that fronts right onto the white sand beach of the Gulf of Mexico is what makes Sailfish Beach Resort on Anna Maria Island a truly unique and enviable vacation destination. And to also be able to view the amazing sunsets over the Gulf from your living room is icing on the cake. There are only four suites, all on ground level, in this family-owned beachfront resort, all are spacious and comfortable, clean and nicely furnished, so we are tempted to try to keep it a secret. An added attraction is the daily visits to the patio of Harry the Great Blue Heron, who had been rescued from an injury by resident Sailfish manager Jeanne. Jeanne makes you feel immediately at home upon your arrival, and is always at the ready to answer any and all questions and provide insights into local attractions and eateries. Anna Maria Island and the Sailfish have become our much anticipated annual destination to escape from the ugly winter weather in NE Ohio.
