My wife and I stayed at Gulf View Waterfront Resort October 8-12 and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Mike was very knowledgable about where to eat, places to see and charters to book for snorkeling and fishing. The room was clean and well furnished. The location is perfect being centrally located in the Keys and is right next door to the Dolphin Research Center. You won't regret picking this resort and we will be returning in the spring with our children.

My husband and I are on our third of a five night stay here at the Gulf View and what an endearing place! Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the original owners son, he showed us to our room and gave us a run down of the local restaurants and things to do. There was a very evident feel of "make yourself at home while you are here" You are free to use the complimentary kayaks, canoe and paddle boats at your leisure..we are enjoying an evening kayak everyday. The two hammocks are a very relaxing place to unwind and the pool is very clean and well maintained. One of our favorite things about Gulf View is "Coco" the Cockatoo, she is very interactive and loves to say "I love you" as you walk up to her haha! The thing that inspired me to sit down and write a review is the little thoughtful touches that make it feel very home-like here; the dishes, can opener, silverware and general kitchen necessities kept in a cabinet under the TV, two beachtowels, toys for kids out by the pool, warm coffee served under a palm tree in the morning and im sure im forgetting other touches. All in all a wonderful stay so far in a family owned, quiet, clean place. Highly recommend!

We stayed at Gulf View and had a very nice visit. It's a Mom and Pop resort with very nice staff and friendly fellow visitors. Our room was clean and well equipped, although somewhat smaller than I had envisioned. Oh well, we made do and had a fine time while there. Unfortunately, it rained a bit too much, but we enjoyed the pleasant scenery, surrounding sightseeing, great morning coffee provided in the gazebo, the pool and just totally relaxing "island style." Even got to pick some avocados, bananas and coconuts off the trees. Nice stay!

Stayed here while fishing with friends in the Key's. A small mom and pop resort with friendly and accommodating owners! Clean and comfortable. If there was any down side it would be the small bathrooms but I have come to find this common in some of the smaller resorts in the Key's.
Would reccommend to anyone that wants a small, decent, quiet place to stay in Marathon!

Our family, (myself & hubby, our two teen age son's & two of their friends and our two mini-schnauzers) visited this past August. We enjoyed everything about the Gulf View!!! As promised, there was hot coffee early each morning and the room was very clean and comfy. The owners were so helpful and hospitable. We have been visiting the keys for over 10 years and don't know how we ever missed this place, but we will stay again for certain.

We really enjoyed the Gulf View Waterfront Resort on Marathon. The unit we stayed in Blue and Gold Macaw room. It was small, but very clean and well maintained. The pool on the property was wonderful, and the view of the bay was beautiful. The owner was very helpful, providing advice on area restaurants, etc. This was our first time in the Keys, and we enjoyed our stay immensely!!

My family, friends, and I have been coming to Gulf View for years now for the start of lobster season. Every year... Same time... Same rooms... Same great experience!!! With the amount of people and boats we bring (20 or so people and 4 or 5 boats) this place really makes it happen for us.

The rooms are clean and accommodating with tables and grills outside. For that very needed hot dog or burger after a long day on the water. Also, with their own private boat ramp you can bring your own boat without having to pay those annoying ramp fee's.

The owners are "TOP NOTCH" and are always there to help with big smiles and a pleasing attitude. I even had a problem with my boat and they recommended there personal boat mechanic who got the job done that day. Thanks again for that one!!!

This is a must stay if you like to relax and swing in the hammocks or float in the pool. Can't wait to see you guys again next year!!!!
