Clean property, great location (if you ignore the public access right next to the property, which contributed to the crowds), but what really made this place awesome was the staff. Always had a smile on their face and willing to help.

We just returned from our second stay at the Mainsail Beach Inn and it was just as perfect this time as it was 4 years ago. There was a little bit of wear on the cabinets and furniture since our last stay (when the unit seemed brand new), but everything was still so pretty and clean. We actually laughed that the (firm) couch was the only uncomfortable anything in our unit, which didn't matter bc we spent most of our time at the condo on the new(er) trex deck anyway. The Mainsail is just right...beachfront, quiet, beautiful, and private. Mary & Manny were friendly and easy to find when we needed chairs. Our only disappointment with the Mainsail Beach Inn is when we have to leave!

Staying at Mainsail Beach Inn has always been a dream of mine. We were finally able to make this dream come true for our family's spring break this year. Our townhome (Unit 12) was absolutely beautiful, clean, and perfect for our family. We had plenty of space to spread out, but the inviting living room, kitchen, and balcony brought us back together after decompressing from busy beach and pool days. Our favorite spot in Unit 12 is the huge balcony that overlooks the pool. You can also see part of the gulf - not a huge part, but enough to see the sparkling water! What a great place for an evening coctail after putting the kids to bed! The property is very well-maintained, and you just can't beat the easy access to the beach. We used the beach chairs daily, and checking them out was fast and painless - you just visit the lobby and ask for as many as you need, and they immediately walk out to unlock them for you! No waiting at all! We didn't check out any of the paddle boats or kayaks, but we saw plenty of people who did, and it also seemed very easy and fun. Anytime we had any questions or needed something, they staff were so quick and responsive! GREAT customer service! We really loved unwinding at the pool and hottub after a long beach day. Nicely maintained, lots of places to sit, tables to picnic at, and lots of pool floats were provided! This was the best beach trip our family has ever been on, and we will defintely be back. Unit 12 is our new favorite beach home away from home!

We have just returned from our second vacation at the Mainsail Beach Inn. Once again we were delighted with our stay and found it hard to leave. The onsite property management team, Mary, Manny and Lindsay, are so helpful and friendly and provide excellent service. Even in this Covid time, we felt comfortable during our entire stay. We arrived late our first day and found the lights on in our suite of rooms and fresh cookies and doughnuts waiting for us along with the amazing views. What a welcome! We highly recommend and cannot wait to return to the Mainsail!
