Stayed here for 5 days in April and it was fantastic. Staff are very knowledgeable but very laid back and relaxed which makes this resort even more tranquil. We stayed in room 14 facing the pool and the Gulf. It was very spacious for the 4 off us and plus it was lovely and cool which is a huge bonus...

My best friend and I rented two units at Gulf View; one unit was a two bedroom with kitchen for me and her and her two teen-aged daughters and one was a one bedroom (two beds) with futon for our college age sons and their friends. The property was perfect for our purposes...which mostly included relaxing by the pool, cooking...

We are return visitors & we would not stay any other place in the Keys! We feel as if we are going home to visit family - the owners make you feel like you are part of their family with their attention, sincere friendliness, and true caring about their folks that stay there. The rooms were SO clean & the...

The reviews were positive and they were true. Not fancy but so genuine and naturally beautiful--hammocks kayaks birds tortoises...coffee in the morn...sunsets in the eve--the pool was spotless--the hosts so friendly. We ate locally at restaurants and also used the grill to cook at home. We live in NYC so this felt particularly relaxing...no fuss...just do your thing and enjoy...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a quick trip to the Keys and were very last minute about booking a place to stay. Looking over reviews of hotels in the area, we were reluctant to pay an exorbitant amount for hotels that only had average reviews. Luckily, I stumbled across the reviews for this resort. We booked the same...

The hosts are excellent. The location is superb.The outdoor heated pool is extra clean and spacious. The well maintained "mini-zoo" is a great bonus.We stayed in blue and gold macaw room.

This property has great reviews but I found it to be average at best. Yes, the owners are on property and nice. They do have your name on a board in the front desk area when you arrive. They do have a coffee pot on the lawn in the morning although the 1st day it hadn't been plugged in so...

I can spend my whole afternoon mentioning details on how things were here, but summing up, in just one word: Great! They were the nicest people, always worried about us being confortable and enjoying the place. The whole place is simple, but don't be mislead by that, is simple, but everything works fine. The views are great, and I guess...

We just returned from our 5th March staying at Gulf View Waterfront Resort in the Florida Keys. We feel like we've found the perfect place to stay while in The Florida Keys.

We stayed for 3 nights early March in the Mutton Snapper 1 bed apartment. We did not self cater so no comment about the amenities, but I think it was all there for anyone wishing to cook. Owners were kind and helpful, attention at once with any queries. My only complaint is that the mattresses definitely need renewing and this...
