Why Mary Beth Scanlon chose Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club

Gulf Islands is a beautiful strip of land a the end of Sea Ranch Drive with the Gulf of Mexico on three sides. Looking out the fourth floor kitchen window you see water and homes built on canals-- looking out the balcony off the bedroom and living room is endless views of the wide open Gulf. The outside property is excellently maintained, the salt-water pool is always sparking and just the right temperature. The unit is updated and very clean.

What makes this condo unique

As prime gulf front property in Hudson, Gulf Islands is a 24/7 gated community which allows for quiet and solace. Guests have easy through information given at the guardhouse. Lawn area with barbequing available. The living/bedroom balcony overlooks a sandy lagoon with frequent visits from dolphins and manatees and rocky point for fishing. Sit and watch the beautiful wake trails from boats in the Gulf. Hudson Beach is nearby for swimming, beach sunning and restaurant/bar .

The photos are accurate of this clean, nicely decorated unit and its lovely view from the balcony.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, peaceful respite! We are so grateful to folks like the Scanlons who make their properties available to rent. The photos are accurate of this clean, nicely decorated unit and its lovely view. We took long videos of the Gulf and lagoon to run on our TV some cold Chicago winter night. We will long remember and talk about having morning coffee out on the balcony. The Scanlons provided clear information on how to access the property. No confusion or questions whatsoever which just added to a relaxed time. Plenty of places to have a meal or grocery shop. Try the Hawaiian pork chops at The Cove restaurant in Spring Hill. You won't be disappointed! Hope we will return to this very same spot in the future. Barb and Paul S.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your vacation time in our unit and had time to relax while looking out at the Gulf. I never get tired of watching the boats go in and out of the Gulf and catching sight of a dolphin or manatee. You were great guests to have. Please visit us again if you come down our way.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in December 2017 and enjoyed every minute! The condo is very spacious, quiet and super clean. The surrounding views of the gulf behind and canal in front are wonderful! Every thing was perfect from start to finish. There is covered parking right beside the elevator and laundry facilities a few steps from the condo on the same floor. The grounds are lovely and you can take long walks on the property or down the little streets close by. We saw dolphins swimming right beside the condo on our first day. Everything you need is there and shopping is close by. Our hosts were wonderful and made everything perfect. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic for a relaxing getaway. It was super clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was beautiful and relaxing. The owner (Mary Beth) was extremely friendly and was quick to respond. We will stay again when we revisit the area.

What a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The condo is everything Mary Beth said it was. What a pleasure to have your expectations exceeded! I don't usually rave on about a place so take note. Dolphins playing in the lagoon in the morning and incredible sunsets in the evening. Not a party place but perfect peaceful getaway.

Serenity at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our brief time of respite at the nicely decorated and easily accessible location. The view was spectacular and so peaceful. The condo was spacious, well stocked, and clean. The gatehouse attendant was very pleasant and welcoming even with our late night arrival. The pool looked wonderful but we didn't get a chance to check it out. The bed and linens were comfortable. We are hoping to return for a visit soon. Thanks so much for your kindness in sharing your condo with us. Numerous restaurants are located close by and are easy to access. Mary Beth was nice and easy to work with from start to finish.
