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 palm trees at out door area. What away to start the day with a cup of coffee gazing out at the Gulf and then a quick dip in the beautiful blue tiled pool with swimming dolphin tiled into bottom of comfortably heated pool. The resort staff(owners) are very attentive with smiles on their faces and ready to help if needed or casual conversation. My room was kept very clean and furnished with a large bed, dish sink, 4 burner stove, full size refrigerator, plates and utensils, plenty of drawers for clothing, BBQ out in front of my room. Very close to so many activities, dolphin rescue facility within walking distance (however I drove to Key Largo and went to Dolphins Plus. I chose to go there because of the reviews. Very friendly and educated training staff. More really good restaurants than I can count. The Bar and Grill next to Gulf View is casual and comfortable, a locals hang out, kids welcome. The beer is cold, steak and "gator" part of the menu. Friendly staff, oh and the best Key Lime Pie in the Keys. prices are moderate compared to most of the other restaurants. 50 miles to Ley West, if you've never gone its a party town. All in all my visit was excellent! I can't wait to go back!
