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 Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club

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.

Great Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at Stones Throw! The unit is roomy and very comfortable. A/C worked very well, made for great sleeping, every night. We found it very quiet here, there is literally no traffic noise as it is well off any main streets.

The view from the balcony is amazing, although because of the time of the year (December) we could not see sunsets. We were, however , able to see a bit of it from the entrance side of the unit. It is probably visible from the balcony at other times of the year.

We saw daulphins from the balcony several times and also close up when we walked on the nature trail there.

Of all VRBOs we have stayed at, this is the best stocked one we have ever seen! There is absolutely everything you will need to get started on your vacation there!

We hope to return someday soon.

Thanks to Nancy for answering all our little questions and offering us great advice!!!!!!!

Great location, Great view. Nothing was needed. Everything was supplied, even glasses in the freezer and something to put in them.

This is an ideal get away location. If you are looking to relax, do not think many other places can match it.

Again, thank you Nancy, for the use of your condo and hospitality.

Stone's Throw

  • 5 of 5

My sister & I stayed June 25-July 2, 2016. Paradise on earth. The owners think of EVERYTHING! Perfection. Spotless, too! As therapeutic as being on a Caribbean island & more affordable. Why did I enjoy it even more than over Thanksgiving, 2015? Because I had 3 more days of luxury! Great restaurants. Check out nearby Sun West Park. A great way to experience the West Coast of Florida. Eager to be a repeat customer this June. Don't miss it. Book early. The weeks fill up wicked fast.

Owner's Response: We love having you! We took your advice and tried Harold Seltzer's Steakhouse recently. If you're ready to take a break from Gulf front dining, it's the place!

Condo on The Gulf

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo, the view is breathtaking from the front entrance and off the balcony. We enjoyed watching the dolphin and manatee right off the balcony. Thank you for sharing your little piece of paradise.
