Pet Friendly

The Gulf View Waterfront Resort Welcomes Pets

 Pet Friendly in Marathon Florida. We love animals and your pet will be greeted and welcomed!  We do ask that you let us know at the time of your reservation so that we may make sure we can accommodate your pet. There is plenty of room to walk your pet, but of course you must keep them on a leash.  We really appreciate that all of our guests are respectful to us and our guests and that they always clean up after their pets promptly and never leave unhappy pets locked in their room. There is a $20.00 charge plus tax per pet per day.

If you have any questions regarding our pet friendly policy, just give us a call at 305-289-1414 or 877-289-0111.

Marathon's Dog Park

In 2009 a group of dog lovers “Friends of the Dog Park” came together to raise funds for a dog park at Rotary Park. The area next to the Rotary Children’s Park (between 75th and 76th Streets Oceanside) is designated for your four legged friends supervised off-leash dog play. There are separate areas for large and small dogs. Rules are posted at the park for everyone’s enjoyment of the park. The park is open from 7:30 am until dusk daily. Fido gives it two paws up!
