We again had our yearly friends reunion with people from all over for 9 days of fishing and fun. This is a great place for a small family reunion, and a hidden treasure for the snook fishermen and women! Live bait is right out your door and the fish are waiting. Beautiful sunsets and then the action starts again. Sea...

Great family place! We will be coming back again! Our family loves this place. We enjoy watching the sea turtles come up to nest, the manatee and dolphin, and we love collecting shark teeth and shells! The best part about this place is that it's basically a private beach with residences on both sides of the motel.

What a great place to unwind. Really small place on the southern end of Casey Key right on the Gulf. My wife and I totally loved it. Several different room layouts, all simple and very clean with kitchenette and pullout couch. We didn't bring our dog this time, but for small fee your dogs are welcome. Most of the restaurants...

This is my 4th year here. There is nothing fancy. Just a good relaxing time right on the water. The kitchens are well stocked with utensils. Some of the people have been coming for 30 years. Things to do: walk on the beach, fish, swim, use your kayak or paddle board or just catch up on your reading. And of...

We stayed over the weekend with family and friends and the water was perfect, the fishing amazing and the motel very cozy and clean. The kitchens are stocked with dishes etc, so if you want to cook you can! The beds are very comfortable and everything is a few steps from the beach. You must go see the drum circle...

RIGHT ON THE WATER......We just came back for a 3 night 4 day stay at Gulfsurf. We were visiting my father in law who was having a birthday and we joined him at this resort. My husband is a 5 star junkie, he needs flat screen TVs, room service and gourmet dining, so I was really worried he would hate...

We used to stay at the Gulf Surf in the 80's and early 90's when visiting my mother-in-law who lived in the area. We had to be in the Sarasota area for a weekend so decided to see what it was like 20 years later. I wanted to rent unit #7, beachfront with two bedrooms, two baths. This was the...

This is a traditional Florida Resort of the past. If you want the Hyatt or Marriott facilities, then stay there - not here. It is a beautiful location and the people are very friendly. We meet there every year at the same time and have met people who have been coming since they were kids and they are in their...

Noisy window unit which leaked. Very hot in unit because window unit was no where near adequate for the space. This was the beachfront on the right side. Cleanliness average & needs updating. They really believe nothing needs to be changed because of the location.
