Another great stay!

by khokebg

We have been coming to the Sarasota area twice a year for years and always stay at Gulf Beach in beautiful room 305! Our room is steps away from a beautiful beach! David and his staff are all so friendly and welcoming and feel like family! The property is very well kept! Sitting on the beach feels like sitting in paradise! We could also sit on our comfy porch and see the beach/water and hear the beautiful waves at night! Gulf Beach is a hidden gem amongst all of the towering sterile high rises! Can't wait for our next visit!
