THrowback small resort, assortment of 1 story cabins, 1 & 2 Floor condos. Small place, big personality. Perfectly maintained by a sweet couple who reside there. Great pool, picnic area, gas grill. I'd go back or recommend to anyone!!! Beach access DIRECTLY across street.

Wonderful place to call home for a week. Quiet location across from the beach. Close to many worthwhile restaurants and attractions. Parking was free and had plenty available. The cottage had everything you might need... Towels, beach bags, kitchen wares, cleaning supplies. The couple that manage the property are super friendly and helpful. All this and a fair price, almost...

The Gulf Gardens Resort is a quaint, quiet resort. We stayed in cottage #9. Everything you need for a great vacation. Minutes away from the beach, you can get there quicker than upper floors of the condos facing the beach. Priced right. Most of these are studio cottages, but are arranged nicely. We were able to cook meals. They have...

I love this place. Have stayed there 2 summers and when I travel back to Mad Beach, will stay there again. Nothing fancy, so if you are used to luxury, it's not for you, but all needs are met, the rooms are really clean, and everyone is super nice. It's in a nice quiet family area, but you are only...

Everything you could possibly need. I wish I was back there already. The room was stocked with everything we could possibly need. The management was very friendly and helpful. The entire area is spotlessly clean.
