About the property

Newly Renovated Gulf Front 3 BR/2 Bath with Balcony With Stunning Gulf View!

NEW VIP totally renovated condo directly on the Gulf Of Mexico. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths and is fully furnished with a contemporary coastal décor. The open planned space has Gulf views from the kitchen, dining area, living room, and master bedroom. An extensive, covered 28 foot balcony connects them. From this 3rd floor condo you can relax on the elevated patio furniture while enjoying the passing sail boats and fishing boats and view spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Frequent rainbows and sightings of manatee, dolphins, sharks, pelicans, osprey and other sea life are not to be missed experiences.

The living room has very comfortable seating to view the large flat screen plasma HD TV. There is unlimited free wireless internet. The kitchen is completely equipped with an abundance of storage. We like to cook and so we equipped it like our house with good pots, pans, microwave, drip and Keurig coffee makers, crockpot, toaster, blender, mixer and plenty of plates etc.

The Master bedroom has a king bed with views of the gulf through the huge sliding glass doors to the covered balcony that extends the width of the unit. It has a large flat screen HD TV and comfortable reading chair with ottoman. The master bath is all new and features a double vanity in a dressing area with abundant closets and a separate area with a large walkin shower. The 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, plenty of closet space, TV and a reading chair. The 3rd bedroom is equipped as a flex space and has a futon sofa, computer/craft desk and HD TV with hard wire connection to internet. It has another closet for craft supplies or overnight guests.

Enjoy the nature coast, view the palm trees, flowers and fauna. You will watch dolphins, manatees, and coastal birds from the balcony. It is a fisherman’s paradise, with boat docks and boat ramps near by to rent. Or enjoy the large heated pool that also overlooks the Gulf.

Unlike most Gulf Front developments, Gulf Island is quiet and rural. We have fought the traffic in many areas on the coast and it's great to be able to run to the store or dinner without having to sit in bumper to bumper traffic! This is a peaceful and serene vacation destination that will help you to relax and rest. Leave the stress behind and take home many good memories.

My husband and I (who live in PA) met our best friends (who live in IN) for a week in Florida. The condo was everything we thought it would be and more. Most times we go on vacation, our accommodations are merely a place to lay our heads and take a shower. This was totally different. We enjoyed our time "staying in or utilizing the amenities. We sat on the balcony in the mornings and evenings to watch the Dolphins swim and play. We saw flying fish and many fishing boats. The sunsets are absolutely gorgeous. Everyone we met was absolutely a joy to talk with. We'd love to come back again.

The local area is beautiful. We absolutely loved going to Sam's for steamed clams. They were the best we've ever had.

My husband and I were in search of a beach with calm waters so we could snorkel. We were directed to Green Key Beach. Turned out to be wonderful, especially if anyone staying is looking for a kid-friendly beach. The address is 4836 Green Key Road, New Port Richey, FL in case anyone wants to go.

Jan, thank you so much for making our stay in Florida a memorable one!

Monthly stay March 2018

  • 4 of 5

The place was amazing! We rented the place for the month at the last minute because our previous rental cancelled 3 weeks before we were expected to leave. Bed was very comfortable and the blankets kept us warm. Kitchen had everything you needed to cook and clean. There was plenty of empty space to put food items. The roof was being replaced and it caused the fuse to the heating & A/C unit to blow. The heat/A/C didn’t work and the owners were very prompt in getting it taken care of within hours. When the weather warmed up we saw dolphins in the canal and bay. We also saw manatees swimming in the bay. My husband was able to fish at the shore. TV reception is good and so is the internet. The washer and dryer came in very handy. We were amazed with Hudson. Every street we went down was a dead end and each house was on water and had a dock. My husband would like to retire there.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! We love Hudson too and think it is the uncrowned jewel of the nature coast. I’m so glad you got to see all of the animals. That is our favorite part of our gulf experience. Jan

Florida warm up

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from this lovely condo to the snowy north. Already we miss the warm Florida sunshine. We had an amazing time staying at this condo. It is clean and spacious with everything you need. We enjoyed the pool and were pleased that the beach towels, etc. were in the cupboard. The highlight of our visit was watching all the wildlife from the balcony. Watch carefully for the bald eagle sitting on the “Seagrass Area” sign just out from the condo. We saw it multiple times. Thanks to Jan for sharing her condo with us!

Beautiful Condo with AMAZING View!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at "Grateful to be at the Gulf"! The condo is so tastefully decorated, has everything you could possibly need and the view from the balcony is priceless! We saw dolphins in the lagoon, hermit crabs and a sting ray down by the bridge and walking path. The pool is sparkling clean, and the grounds are well-maintained. It is also nice that there is security at the gate so all traffic monitored. Thank you to Jan for being so gracious and helpful and offering great suggestions as far as nearby attractions and things to do. This is just such a peaceful relaxing place, I would highly recommend

We were "Grateful to be at the Gulf"!

  • 5 of 5

My husband I just returned from a wonderful month at this condo in the Gulf Island Beach and Tennis Club. We could not have been more pleased with the condo. It is spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was as well equipped as my own at home and we enjoyed the updated finishes. A plus was having the washer and dryer right in the unit. There was plenty of room to entertain family from the area when they came to visit. We spent many afternoons watching the dolphins fishing in the gulf below. My husband got a great picture of the osprey from the nature walk. The weather was fantastic the entire month! All in all it was a relaxing enjoyable visit. A special thanks to the owners who were very responsive.
