About the property

One bedroom, one bath w balcony and private sundeck in secure gated community.

You will find three buildings in this gated, secure community with every unit a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico, a lagoon right outside the balcony and a private sun deck (50 x 25) with views both to the north lagoon and to a deep water canal. Wild life, manatee, porpoise, sea birds can be observed from both locations. Beyond the lagoon is a walking trail where you can catch fish (redfish, snapper, snook and much more)

Gulf Island is close to shopping centers, just a mile off US 19, making for a quiet, peaceful setting. Great restaurants abound in the area, some without even going out to 19. A family beach is within two miles and a private beach is expected to be refurbished by the first of the year. Tennis courts are on location. Golf courses are plentiful in the area with two within 10 miles.

Tampa International Airport is less than an hour away. The beautiful beaches of Clearwater and St. Petersburg are within an hour and a half drive.

You will have underground, covered parking with a short walk to the elevator, a beautiful clubhouse, gym access for both weight lifting and cardio equipment, game rooms and library, Wi-Fi and tv in both living room and bedroom.

About Maureen Sullivan

I am a retired school teacher and retired boat captain who enjoys the outdoors, fishing, swimming and golfing.

Maureen Sullivan purchased this condo in 2014

Why Maureen Sullivan chose Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club

The beauty of it. You can feel that you are on a cruise ship, but can drive off to good restaurants without fighting the traffic of US 19. Being able to sit in your own living room and watch the sunset almost every evening is truly a plus.

Large private outdoor area with private grill and sunbathing.

What makes this condo unique

Close access to all that Florida has to offer without the hassle of big city traffic Very safe and secure. .

Just like being at home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo in April 2017, and it is everything that it is advertised to be in the write ups. We loved it! Everything that you need is there and more. There was even salt and pepper and spices available for cooking. We used the charcoal BBQ for steaks one night. The charcoal and fluid were even available. We brought our little dog with us as it is a pet friendly unit. One would never know there were pets staying there as the place is so clean and fresh. We saw dolphins every day. The wifi reception was amazing (best in state for us) I would recommend this condo for anyone wishing for a quiet and peaceful vacation.

Beautiful condo with rooftop private balcony

  • 5 of 5

Maureen was wonderful to rent from and the condo was just perfect for our family of 3. The condo had everything we needed to make small meals. The highlight was definitely the huge private balcony that comes off the living room. Each day we saw dolphins, manatees, and sting rays in the lagoon. Maureen also allowed us the use of her two kayaks, which was sweet. Great time, we’ll be back!

Great Holiday with an awesome Gulf view!

  • 5 of 5

We love this condo! We stayed last year, and will be back again for sure. We love the Gulf view, and seeing the dolphins in the bay. There are fun restaurants close by like Sam's Bar... with amazing sunset views. Also, "Get Hooked" has great food and entertainment on weekends.

Thanks Maureen, see you next year!

Jill, Montreal, Quebec

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo for the month of Feb 2017 and enjoyed every moment we were there .. there are no words to explain how peaceful it is.

Condo is equipped with everything one needs, it is like moving from one home to the next.

Views of dolphins, manatees. ducks, cranes and sea hawks are all part of your day. You can spend the whole day looking out at the water and never be bored. Lots of places to walk and enjoy nature.

Condo is very secured in a gated community.

We enjoyed our stay and thanks to Maureen for letting us stay in her peace of heaven for a month.

WOW! Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Maureen's Penthouse Condo, and we can't say enough about how great it was! Her place was decorated beautifully, and the views were spectacular. At night you could see a million stars and by day dolphins jumping in the Bay. The pool was awesome, surrounded by palm trees, and at night you could see the sunset poolside. We used Maureen's kayaks in bay and saw lots of beautiful birds and enormous fish jumping all around us. Maureen responded quickly when we needed anything, and even came by to meet us & showed us personally where to get the kayaks.

We loved Sam's Bar & Get Hooked, the Restaurants real close by. We added an extra 3 days to our vacation, and would have stayed longer if Maureen's place wasn't booked. It was a nice quiet getaway. It is a wonderful place for couples & families. The property was very clean and well-maintained. We will be back again for sure!
