About Nancy Thrower

We fell in love with this area while visiting last summer. Stayed here at Gulf Island over Thanksgiving 2014 and were lucky enough to find this condo. We have been loving it and loving sharing it with others ever since. Our very first Snowbird renters are already reserved to return next winter!

Nancy Thrower purchased this condo in 2015

Why Nancy Thrower chose Hudson

We will retire here someday. The constant and ever changing view of the Gulf along with the pristine setting and plentiful wildlife are unparalleled anywhere else in Florida. Plus it's laid back, friendly and peaceful. Folks truly cherish living and visiting here.

What makes this condo unique

The Gulf Front living is simply spectacular.

Beautiful location and view of the lagoon and Gulf.

Overall appearance of the unit and the grounds very well maintained. We highly recommend the stone throw, and we will revisit it again

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. Nice inside with special extra touches that made it particularly pleasant. A million dollar view of the Gulf of Mexico. We also met several residents of the condo complex and they added to our enjoyment. Plenty of parking and nearby access to shops and stores for various items. Nancy & Fred made the whole process easy.

Everything you could want and then some

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stone's Throw for two weeks over Christmas 2015/New Year's 2016. The weather was beautiful and the accommodations were top knots! The condo was immaculate and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. We were close to many nice restaurants and bars and the best fish market was at the end of the road! The condo grounds were clean and the area around them peaceful. We even saw a dolphin in the lagoon in front! We met a few neighbors and they told us all about the condos and the area. We took advantage of the bicycles and the nearby beach. Nancy was so accommodating and gracious. We have been thinking about purchasing one of the condos for our retirement. I recommend Stone's Throw without hesitation.

Beautiful views from the unit. Enjoyed watching the dolphins feed on schools of fish in the lagoon. The unit is well equipped with everything one would need and the owners were a pleasure to work with. A nice leisurely walk around the entire complex can take an hour or so provided you don't run into all of the friendly people there. Then 1 hour turned into 2. There are some great restaurants in the area as well.

Birthday Weekend Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I took my sister away for her birthday to this wonderful condo. The dwelling was spotless and fully equipped. The owners anticipated our every need from the kitchen fully stocked to the extra beach towels. The area is quiet and very peaceful with a beach within walking distance. Restaurants nearby as well as shopping . We saw a dolphin on our first morning and a bald eagle on the roof, there is so much to just watch very relaxing .There was a breathtaking view from the front door and the balcony I couldn't decide which to gaze at! Thanks Nancy for your hospitality . This place is amazing!!

"Stone's Throw" is a 1/1, sleeps 4, condo at Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club. Mum & I stayed 4 1/2 days over Thanksgiving 2015. Paradise! Spotless! Gorgeous decor. Ultra-quiet. This young couple thought of EVERYTHING! All the comforts of home at your fingertips. Panoramic view of the Gulf & Lagoon from a delightful balcony, which is frequently visited by a pair of osprey. It is enjoyable any & all times of the day. We didn't see manatees or dolphins in the lagoon this trip, but there was an incredible rainbow--without rain! The most mallards we saw at one time was 25! Don't miss the nature trail. Hudson is small enough & easy to find your way around with great eateries, but Spring Hill is just north if you want a bigger town. We have already booked 6/25 -> 7/2/16. Make reservations fast or you'll lose the opportunity! Thank you, owners!
