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. Bathroom was somewhat tight. No closet or wardrobe to put clothes in. Only a single out of way rod for a half dozen items or so. Walls.to rooms "behind"...

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. The owners are very friendly, the grounds are beautiful and they have a magnificent swimming pool. Everything was perfect! If you want a slice of the old Florida...

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...

This is the tag line of the Gulf View Waterfront Resort brochure and this is a perfect description. We have been to the Keys many times and enjoy staying in different places. The first thing that greeted us as we walked in to register was a welcome sign with our names on the board - such a simple touch but...

This place is very old Florida - not fancy but a nice small resort at which to relax. The owners and staff were nice and helpful. The rooms were adequate, we split our stay between a small one bedroom and a larger two bedroom, I would recommend the larger room for the small difference in rates. The one bedroom was...

My husband and I loved this place. It is a small complex and very much in the old style. The owner was very helpful. We arrived late in the afternoon after driving all the way from Fort Myers that day. We were hungry and asked for a recommendation. She recommended the Hide Away Café in Marathon and even made a...

Having stayed in many motels, hotels, hostels, B&B's, homestays, etc... this is the second time I have ever felt motivated to make a recommendation. It is an old style place, clean and functional. I laid in bed while watching the sun shine on palm trees fluttering in the wind. My room was small, as was the price. The room amenities...
