This luxury two bedroom, seventh floor apartment directly on the Gulf of Mexico, with to-die-for views, is our own vacation paradise. We decorated and furnished it for our own pleasure. You'll love it too. Sliding glass doors from the living room and master bedroom open onto the wide balcony with spectacular views of the Gulf. The full mirrored wall in the living room and multi-mirrored master bedroom accentuate the water views from every angle. The entire apartment has new high-quality ceramic tile, even the balcony. Enjoy breakfast, a romantic dinner, and/or an evening glass of wine on the super-comfortable patio furniture on the balcony overlooking our private lagoon, beach, and the open water of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. You'll see dolphins playing in the lagoon and fish jumping high in the air from the balcony.
The master bedroom has a king-size bed with a brand new luxurious mattress and a flat screen TV. You can see the Gulf of Mexico from bed! The second bedroom has a trundle daybed that can be made up as two separate single beds or a king-size bed. There's actually a water view from this bedroom too... of canals and the marina. The living room has a brand new flat screen 37 inch HDTV with a DVD player and separate stereo/FM/CD player. High-speed cable AND wireless internet service are included free throughout the apartment, as well as 2 telephones with free local and long distance calling.
The dining area features an imported Italian dining table that seats four when closed and opens up to seat eight comfortably, illuminated by a beautiful crystal chandelier. Of course the apartment is fully air conditioned and heated, but there are also overhead fans in every room and phenomenal cross ventilation that can make the apartment quite comfortable even without using the air conditioning.
The kitchen is newly remodeled and includes all appliances: dishwasher, icemaker in the fridge, microwave, blender, toaster oven, coffee maker, water filter, and a stacked washer/dryer, so you don't have to go outside to do the laundry. Naturally, all the dishes, glasses, pots and pans, utensils, linens, and towels you'll need are there.
Gulf Island Beach and Tennis Club is a gated vacation community with excellent 24-hour security at the gate. You could happily spend your whole vacation here, enjoying the huge heated pool, beach, four tennis courts, gym, sauna, luxurious club rooms (with library, big screen TV, pool table, ping pong, grand piano, dance floor, etc). You can enjoy our private nature walk and fish along the perimeter of the lagoon. Rent a boat at nearby Hudson Beach, charter a fishing boat, or venture out into international waters on a cruise or gambling ship. Our own little beach is quiet and private, better for sun bathing than swimming. For more 'action,' the famous Clearwater and St Petersburg Beaches are nearby. In between are the quaint Greek fishing village of Tarpon Springs and the art community of Dunedin. Also nearby is the world-renouned Salvador Dali Museum and the Tampa Performing Arts Center and Aquarium. Disney World and Busch Gardens are easily accessible. There are dozens of restaurants within a few minutes drive (don't miss our succulent local grouper and gulf shrimp and oysters) as well as any kind of shopping you might want from discount outlets to luxury boutiques.

We fell in love with the Florida Gulf Coast and wanted a place directly on the open water, with beach access, heated pool, and tennis courts. Gulf Island Beach and Tennis Club is perfect for us -- the only resort of its kind in Pasco County. We bought this place for ourselves and use it a lot, but our permanent home is in Maryland. We're happy to share our Gulf Island condo with friends, old and new.
Our children and grandchildren are in Tampa, and that's what drew us to this area initially. But the more we visited, the more we wanted our own slice of paradise. Tampa is a vibrant city and the Tampa Bay area has a tremendous amount of activity of all sorts. But the little town on Hudson still has some of the charm of an old Florida fishing town. Commercial and charter fishing boats sail in and out of the little harbor every day. The fresh fish in the local restaurants is phenomenal. And the shrimp & oysters -- WOW! Local prices are remarkably low for food and services. And Everyone is So Friendly.
Gulf Island Beach and Tennis Club is a self-contained, gated vacation paradise. In addition, it's a short drive to: Clearwater and St Petersburg beaches, Tarpon Springs, Disney World, Busch Gardens, Sea World, Tampa Aquarium, museums, downtown Tampa and Tampa Performing Arts Center.
