About Maureen Sullivan

A retired school teacher from the Tampa Bay area, Maureen Sullivan was a boat captain in early retirement, and now enjoys all the beautiful golf courses in the area.

Maureen Sullivan purchased this condo in 1993

Why Maureen Sullivan chose Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club

Close to major attractions, a good central location to airports and entertainment, first-class restaurants and shopping malls. Unlike the crowded beaches and roads, this area is just far enough north to avoid the hustle and bustle of Tampa and St. Petersburg. It is set back in from busy Hwy 19 with all of the restaurants and shopping centers in close proximity, and yet is very quiet and peaceful. This is a big plus.

What makes this condo unique

Gorgeous sunsets, close to beaches, quiet and very secure away from the rushes of the big cities.

Watch the dolphins play in the bay ourside your balcony!
average rating of 4.571429 based on 14 reviews

An absolutely wonderful place to stay. So very peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

Imagine having your coffee or afternoon cocktail sitting out on the balcony watching the dolphins swimming in the lagoon! If you are an early riser you can watch the sun come up in the morning, painting the sky with beautiful colours. The salt water swimming pool was amazing - a lovely temperature of 84 degrees made it that much more enjoyable. Maureen, the owner, is a sweetheart! All in all, this vacation spot is everything we were hoping for and then some. A great place to relax and enjoy ! Thank you Maureen for sharing your place with us.

Very well kept

  • 4 of 5

The view off the balcony was amazing. We saw dolphins everyday and even manatees. Pickle Ball was played everyday. Pool was heated and some of guests played music with guitars and sang. Condo was all ceramic tile and kitchen had beautiful rich looking cabinets. Maureen was very helpful in us getting in for our first stay at this property.

Maurine is the best

What a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this condo for a week over New Year's. The complex is clean, quiet, convenient, and well maintained. The condo itself was also all of those things and more. The kitchen appears to be brand new with upgraded appliances, cabinets and counter-tops. The condo was spacious and there was definitely enough room for just the two of us, although it would sleep 4 comfortably. The view was probably one of the best things for us. We spent many hours on the balcony just taking it all in. The photos online don't really do the view justice. And we did see some dolphins swimming in the cove as we sat on the balcony. The property is conveniently located to so many things to do, for both young and old. Close to shopping, grocery stores, and restaurants with just a short drive.

The owner Maureen is truly a sweetheart and was genuinely interested that everything was ok with our stay and made the check-in/check-out process super easy for us.

Overall, it was a great vacation and we didn't look forward to coming back home. But, as we will have those memories to look back on, this is a great place for anyone to do the same. If we are even back in that area again, we will definitely be looking to stay here again!

We would recommend this place for any couple or small family to enjoy

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay in Hudson. Maureen, the owner of the condo, personally welcomed us and showed all the amenities on our first day. Maureen was very helpful, friendly and easy to reach for any information. She treated us to a personal boat ride to explore the Gulf neighborhood. Although we have spent much of our time in fishing, we never had time to visit the club house to enjoy all of the fun and gaming facilities. The condo itself is in a fantastic location with a beautiful ocean view, but the management company needs to seek a professional cleaning service for the apartment which I think is the only reason why we cannot give this a five star rating. Besides that we would recommend this place for any couple or small family to enjoy.
