About Mary Beth Scanlon

Mary Beth Scanlon purchased this condo in 2006

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 .

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.

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We loved the views and the quiet laid back atmosphere. Wish there were closer shopping for rainy days. My daughter suggested the complex get hot tubs, maybe some shuffleboard or something like that. It would also be great if the complex made kyakis available. Just curious where do people ride there bikes. We seen several in garage.

Overall the condo was very nice, clean, well decorate. It was perfect for us. The view from the condo was fantastic.
