Renter Beware: As a Military Vet and a Federal Employee it is in my nature to respect the places I stay and leave them as I found them. It really upset me to be accused of illegal activities and for my money to be withheld for really no legitimate reason. What was supposed to have been an inexpensive 4th of... More

The condos are definitely older and some are kept up more than others. I stayed in room 209 and it was clean and the beds were comfortable. The pool is absolutely wonderful! It was so clean and great to swim in. There is a cute area to BBQ and relax. Bonita isla rentals was very convenient. I hope I get... More

We paid and average price for an average room. Everything was older but still workable the beds pretty good. The guy we rented from was friendly and helpful. The manager of the condos was friendly enough. If I could give it a 3.5 stars instead of 3 I would because the people where nice but these are not 4 star... More

The walk to the beach is ridiculous. Too far to carry coolers or chairs. The sheets weren't clean, beds were full of sand. The walls are thin you can hear everything from outside and the neighbors. The fire alarm went off all night out first night there, starting at about 3am. The pool was extremely crowded with kids who were... More

The two buildings are right next to eachother but the other section listing Gulf View II on this site looks completely different. We stayed in 205 and it's everything we needed, and a really affordable price. The kitchen was nice and the King in the bedroom was great. Small living room, and small TV sets, but we didn't come to... More

Gulfview 1, is an older condo complex and the southern end of the island. Its clean, and well maintained. Our room, 511, was also clean and adequatley stocked with all the things that you are likely to need. There is no laundry facility inside the condo. The downside to this complex is that it attracts families with small children, lots... More
