Gulf View is a wonderful oasis in the middle Keys. It has a lovely waterfront setting with palm trees and a relaxed atmosphere. Mike will help with any request in a friendly and helpful way. You can walk to the Dolphin Research Center. The state park is minutes away. We loved our stay at Gulf View. The Hammond Family

I had never been to the Keys before, just went on a whim, spent 10 wonderful days at Gulf View. The family run resort was so laid back. The grounds are beautiful and force you to relax. Park like settings with palm trees, hammocks, gentle off shore breeze, pick nick tables. Coffee hot in a large coffee maker under the...

We stumbled upon gulf view and couldn't be more pleased with our stay. The room was comfortable and clean, we had great neighbors to chat with, there was amble parking, and we had our morning coffee on one of the paddle boats. Definitely check out Sparky's restaurant while you're visiting. It was a recommendation to us when we checked in...

We just left the resort, and have nothing but nice things to report. The staff was super friendly, and accommodating, the room was small but clean and adequate. The small kitchen and gas grills allowed my family to save some coin and cook in a little. Also when we caught a nice Mangrove Snapper from the dock we were able...

Our stay here in mid-December 2013 was relaxing, enjoyable and a balm to our souls. This scenic oasis in a beautiful setting features clean, full kitchenette apartments with outside balconies - each of which has its own tables, chairs and grill. We took advantage of the nice warm pool, the hammocks set among the palm trees and the free use...

This is a relaxing, pretty hotel right on the water. We love small, mom-and-pop hotels and this is one of the best we've ever seen. We used the paddleboats, canoe, and kayaks every morning. We also enjoyed the pool, hammocks, and cup after cup of coffee in the mornings. The location is great and the grounds are beautiful. We stayed...

Family run hotel. Nothing fancy, but clean and well supplied. We had access to canoe, kayaks, bicycles without fee. Also gas grill for each unit outside. Very nice pool for the few rooms. A little slice of paradise!

We had a delightful time and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Please don't go there expecting glitz or flash. This lovely slice of heaven is OLD FLORIDA at its best. We brought a cooler with hopes of being able to cook a couple of meals and we weren't disappointed. There were several grills on the property and we used...
