Come relax in this beautiful condo with the PERFECT LOCATION on Gulf Island on the glistening waters of the Gulf of Mexico in West Central Florida. Excellent fishing spot. Catch redfish, snook and more.
Located in the town of Hudson, you will enjoy the quaint boating community 5 minutes away. Plenty of local eateries.
The unit features a balcony with 2 sets of sliding glass doors (living room and master bedroom). Enjoy the outstanding view of the lovely heated pool just below you, dolphins and manatees swimming in the lagoon located just beyond the pool, and the gulf beyond that. Faces WEST, for outstanding sunset views that words cannot do justice to. Strong internet (wifi) for keeping up with friends and family back home.
Convenience: You are just steps from the elevator leading to the pool and parking lot. Plus you're on the 2nd Floor, in Building 2, so your elevator ride is short to the pool. Wash a load of clothes by just stepping around the corner.
Exercise facility is located down the hall in the Clubhouse, or better yet, walk the mile long Nature Trail around the island. If you are really fit, walk over to the beach.
Large Master Bedroom has new, queen size bed and connecting full bath. Guest bedroom with full size bed also has its own closet and bath.
Fully stocked kitchen has been updated with all new appliances, as well as granite countertops.
Pool: Swim in the heated, Olympic-sized, salt-water pool. The pool is heated to 85 degrees in the winter. Plenty of lounge chairs as well as patio table sets with umbrellas for taking a break from the sun.
The condo was updated in 2012, and is immaculate (see Reviews). Always professionally cleaned after each rental.
Located 30 miles north of the world-class Clearwater Beach, which is also home to Winter the Dolphin, from the movie Dolphin Tale, at the Clearwater Aquarium.
Great local restaurant options 5 minute away. Our favorites are Sam's and Skinny's.
Small patch of sand and swing set for entertaining children, when they are finished swimming in the pool.
Quiet complex, but sociable residents and guests.
Calendar is up to date. Book now for the best fall dates. (Sorry, winter 2015 is booked).
Information on address, keys and rental agreement available during the booking process.
Hello, My name is Karen, and I live with my husband in Wisconsin. We enjoy 3 of the 4 seasons up here, and wish we had the time to spend all winter at the condo. My husband and I both Work during the week. Best times to call are evenings and weekends. This condo has been in the family since it was new. Many fond memories of bringing the kids down to visit Busch Gardens, Clearwater Beach and Weeki Wachi.
Karen Corbett purchased this condo in 1984
Hudson has all the amenities without the dense traffic of South Florida. The entire Gulf Island Beach and Tennis Club property is beautiful and well maintained, and we remodeled our unit in 2012. Close to pool, elevator and parking. Perfect get-away spot.
The amazing right view from the balcony of the sunset over the gulf is fantastic! You won't want to leave (we don't!). Our condo is in Building 2, the most convenient of the 3 buildings, close to elevator, pool and laundry. Recently renovated, with all the comforts of home, including wi-fi and cable, and fully equipped kitchen. 42' flat screen tv and DVD player. The pool and the views are fabulous with views of palm trees and water.
We stayed here for 5 days to explore the Hudson area , The Condo was spotless, fully equipped and beautifully located looking out over the pool, lagoon and Gulf. The grounds are immaculate as well , the residents are very friendly and the even the guards at the gatehouse have personality.
Our experience with the booking and arrival process through the owner and her "assistant" was flawless -they know what needs to be done and it is .
No hesitation in recommending this Unit and Owner - it was Excellent .
As a bonus we watched two dolphins swimming in the Lagoon from our balcony .
We were very happy with our 5 nights at the condo. We received the keys as indicated by Karen, and check in with security was very smooth. The condo was well stocked with everything we needed during our short stay. (Just needed a kettle).
The condo is conveniently located next to the elevator & stairwell which made for very easy access. There is no washer/dryer within the unit, but two are available right next door.
The complex was very quiet during our stay, and the grounds & heated pool were well maintained. The views of the gulf are amazing. Although the weather was not favourable during our visit, our only concern is the pool deck is mostly in the shade at this time of year, so sun-seekers may have to take a pool lounger to the sun-decks which are a little bit further from the pool.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay.
The condo was perfect for our stay! Loved sitting on the balcony in the mornings, looking at the pool and the gulf. The complex and all the grounds were spotless and well-maintained. Blessed with a gorgeous sunset the first night. The unit had everything we needed and the decor was just "beachy" enough without being tacky. We would definitely stay in this condo again when we are in the area. Appreciated Karen's quick response and being so easy to work with.
My grandson and I had a great visit at your condo. He was so excited to eat every meal at the counter on the balcony - I had never seen a set up like that before and it was so convenient. He also loved the playground at the condo and at Hudson beach just 5 minutes away. I really appreciated how clean the unit was since he spent nearly all of his time playing on the floor. Thank you for such a perfect stay!
The condo was clean and pretty much as described. Had very nice views and the pool was nice. Could have used a cookie sheet and more than 1 large frying pan. The condo is for sale so we were awoken one morning by someone coming into the condo since there is a lock box on the door. She said she thought the place was vacant and was coming to take pictures. She left and later a man called asking to show the condo one morning. We were promised compensation for the showing but that never happened. We also did not get all the deposit back as they said a shower curtain was torn. The plastic liner was torn when we arrived and another ring tore during use. The condo was left in fine condition but we were still not given our money, or the money promised for the showing of the condo. On our final morning, the cleaning lady called us at 9:20 to say she would be there in an hour, although check out was 11. She was upset we were still there at 10:30 and reported us leaving at 11:20 although we actually left at 11 on the dot. She reported the place was left messy and took her too long to clean, which I know is not true, as we cleaned much of the place ourselves. There are no nice beaches close by, we drove an hour to Clearwater to enjoy the beach when it wasn't raining. The condo was nice but I would not ever stay here again, especially if you want to be close to the beach.
Great saltwater fishing from the Gulf Island grounds and bridge. Just 20 miles south of the condo is Tarpon Springs, home of the beautiful Howard Park Beach and Florida's 'Greektown'. In Hudson, enjoy waterfront dining at Sam's Beach Bar 3 minutes away as well as a multitude of local eateries (non-chain). Plenty of shopping close by.
