We just had our 3rd stay at Gulf View Waterfront Resort and we love this place. Rooms and grounds are clean. The free canoe/kayak rentals are great. Tons of grills to cook out. Clean nice pool. We will definitely be back :-)

We rented the efficiency unit. Very clean and well taken care, the owners were friendly. A quiet place from the hustle and crowds. The pool was awesome, nice and refreshing. The canoe use was fun and relaxing. Great place to stay.

This our third time staying here and still great place. A nice family run place and you deal directly with the owners for everything. Our smoke alarm started chirping and I walked to the office and no need to report to maintenance and hope it was fixed. Instead he walked over right away and replaced the smoke alarm. The rooms are clean and the ground are beautiful. If you are looking for a fancy hotel with lots of bells and whistles then skip this place. But if you want a nice, friendly family owned place then consider Gulf View Waterfront Resort

I probably should not present a review on Gulf View Resort......will only make it more difficult to get the room I want at the time that I want it. But, in fairness, the place deserves credit for a wonderful stay (with the exception of the Florida weather). If you are looking for a place of peace & quiet in the keys, look no longer.

Loved everything about this place. A small hotel owned by some former Chicago peeps, this place was nothing but welcoming and wonderful. Perhaps because of our Chicago connection, they upgraded us to a larger room and recommended we have dinner at the SS Wreck a few doors down, where we met other awesome people. Plus they have parrots! Go talk to them, they’re amazing. Thanks Susan! #BlueIslandBlueSeas
