Gulf View Waterfront Resort Review

With a flock of 15 caged birds, a tortoise, and an iguana on the property, this homey duplex is part resort, part menagerie. Owner-occupied, the Gulf View's units are individually decorated with simple wicker furniture, tropical pastels, and ceiling fans. Guests—mostly couples during the winter and families during holidays—appreciate the close proximity to the Dolphin Research Center, practically next door. (The resort offers discount passes.) Free use of canoes, paddleboats, and kayaks are also available for guests. This eco-green friendly property is a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence winner.
