“Beautiful and private!”
Reviewed 28 April 2012 via mobile

Gulf View is a beautiful, private, and quiet spot to vacation. The family that owns the inn is very helpful. We stayed in one of the efficiencies and it was perfect for our quiet get-away.

There is maid service, but only touch-ups while you're there, not a full cleaning. Sge made the bed and took out trash, but didn't clean rhe barhrooms or sweep or anything. That is the only thing I wish was different.

We stayed recently for three nights and couldn't have picked a better spot to stay, or tour the keys i.e. close to all the sights and attractions, yet occupying its own quiet, pretty location; Grassy Key really is a nice place.

The accommodation was clean, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. The on site amenities were very good notably the pool, the birds and animals (Coco was loved by our children), the free kayaks and pedalos (great for exploring the Key), the gas barbecue and garden furniture. Throw in the helpful owners and the sunsets from the private dock or small beach and you have a great place to stay.

I'd like to think we may return to the Keys; if we do this resort will get our booking.

Clean family run resort; over the yrs, we have seen much improvement with something new added or updated. The owners ensure comfort. The room was well stocked with lots of towels. Well maintained property features pool, mini-zoo w/ birds and turtles, comfortable hammocks, putting green, fishing dock. Some folks bring boats. Close enough to all Keys attractions to visit from that location easily. Small resort w/ 11 units with friendly guests. Towel animals; free kayak & canoe usage. Bike rentals. Every morning coffee is waiting for us at the Tiki Hut. Sandy area w/ tiki hut for shade. It is paradise!

Room Tip: They are all nice; there are so many places to sit outside that you won't be in your room much a...

After a long flight from England and the travel down from Miami we were so happy to find we had selected a lovely place to stay (for our few days down in the keys). The owners Mike and Stephanie were so friendly and helpful. The accommodation was great. The room was clean, a reasonable size and with a lovely view of the gulf (just as we had hoped). We were in room 17. The property had a nice feel to it. We made use of the swimming pool (which was nicely heated). We made use of the peddle boats and got a great view, from the water, of the dolphins (the dolphin center is 1/2 mile away and a must visit). We would definitely revisit if we are ever down in the keys again.

We (two adults and two children) stayed here for four nights in start April. The place is great!

Super service, fantastic view over the gulf and nice pool.

Only one negative comment: The Wi-Fi is very poor.

We stayed here on the recommendation from a local fishing guide, Capt. Paul Fisicaro, from March 25 through March 30th ... and the place was OUTSTANDING!!

We can't say enough about this place and we will definately be back ... the room we stayed in (Unit 13 - The Mahi Room) was a two room suite with a small kitchen area ... If I had to change anything it would be to place a 2nd TV in the living area and the bathroom was a little small, but no worries there ...

The grounds were very well maintained and very private ... If you're not careful - you'll miss the place going down the road ... While we didn't spend a whole lot of time there because we were fishing (a LOT) ... the highlight of our days was to see what kind of animal was laying on our bed when we got back home in the evening ... It seems that the maid service has a knack for making various animals out of the towels and leaving them on hte bed after she cleaned ... very nice!!!

We didn't get to check out the pool or use any of the watercraft but we'll try to do so the next time we're there ...

All in all this is a great place that is central to the entire Florida Keys (it's literally right in the middle of the chain) and makes for a great and relaxing "home base" for your trip down here ...

We'll be back!!!!!!!!!!
