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.

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.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this wonderful home the week after Christmas. It is updated with marble counters in the kitchen and baths, beautifully decorated, quiet and equipped with everything you need (extra towels, sheets, blankets, pillows as well as pool/beach gear and basics like soap, etc). The location is right on the water and the views can be enjoyed from the large balcony that overlooks the pool and water. The owner was quick to respond to our questions before and during our stay and provided a book with local restaurants, sites and activities. If you are traveling to the area, I would highly recommend staying here!

Relaxing. Rejuvenating. RestFUL!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this condo with our 6 year old son over the summer. The pictures shown are very accurate. It is represented well online. This is a relaxation paradise. The beachy decor was beautiful. The beds were extremely comfortable in both rooms. My husband was very happy about that as he suffers with chronic back pain. The pillows and extra blankets were so awesome that we looked up the brand's and bought some for our house! The small computer area was a little larger than I expected. It doubled as my sons playroom for our trip.

The unit was very clean and had EVERYTHING we needed for meals and to do our laundry. The residents and guests were very friendly and inviting to us as renters. The best part of our trip was looking for dolphins and manatees each night and watching the beautiful sunsets from the balcony. The pool was fantastic and well maintained. Great experience all the way around! Thank you Jan and family for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic place with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb time at Jan's condo. Jan is a really warm and helpful lady who was a pleasure to talk to.

The long balcony gave us a panorama of the gulf of Mexico. We would sit there for many hours watching the occasional dolphins and regular diving sea birds and jumping fish, as well as the boats.

The large swimming pool was lovely, clean and hardly used by others. Again, it provided a great viewing area for the gulf.

As a family of 5 there was plenty of room. We used the pull out beds making it a 4 bed condo so all 3 daughters has there own room. The modern open kitchen area was well stocked and a great place to cook. The whole condo is modern, tasteful and clean.

We used the condo as a relaxing getaway but also as a base for days out to great places like Clearwater beach and Tarpor Springs. Traffic was light and stress free.

Sam's bar was a great nearby place to eat out with live music and great sunsets. Walmart was very close by as well.

We only left there 2 days ago and already we really want to go back! I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Book it - you won't regret it.
