About Ray Reeder

My wife and I have been married over 34 years, been high school sweethearts since 1982. Kathy has served as property manager, and now enjoys her grandmother duties, I retired from the US Army now working in a school IT department. We picked up and moved to Florida in 2014 bringing our immediate family with us, to include our 9 year old granddaughter.

Being military we have seen many places in the United States and abroad. After a few trips to MacDill Air Force I feel in love with the Florida weather and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Ray Reeder purchased this condo in 2016

Why Ray Reeder chose Gulf Island Beach & Tennis Club

We choose Hudson for many reasons, the small town feel is incredible but yet you are in the middle of what Florida really offers. Minutes from shopping, boating, fishing, and restaurants, and a short drive could lead you to Tarpon Springs, Weeki Wachee Park, Casino Boat and Sunwest Park these local attractions are wonderful for the entire family. Everyone already knows about the fun filled days you can have in the main amusement attractions in Florida such as Disney World, Universal, Busch Gardens, and Sea World.

Our condo is very modern and my wife sets the Florida feel with her decorating through out the unit. This unit has 2 bedroom and 2 bathrooms with central air. The master bedroom has a queen bed, sitting area, ceiling fan, flat screen cable television with sliding glass doors to the balcony. The other bedroom has a private entrance with 2 twin beds, individual ac unit, ceiling fan with a flat screen television with a Amazon Fire Stick. The kitchen is recently remodeled with custom cabinets, update appliances, granite counter tops with an island. Fully equipped kitchen everything you would need to prepare a wonderful meal. The living room has a queen sleeper sofa with a memory foam mattress, love seat, ceiling fan, flat screen cable television, dvd player, sliding glass doors to get to the breath taking views from the balcony.

The property is beautiful with 4 tennis courts to be used, the Olympic size pool that is a refreshing 86 degrees water all year long, a private nature trail, fishing area, private beach, workout rooms one with weights, and other with cardio equipment looking right out at the Gulf of Mexico and a sauna, in the club house there is a pool table, ping pong table, and a foosball table.

What makes this condo unique

My wife and I being long time vacationers we have learned we always forgot some of the extras with we needed every trip. Well we are trying to assist and stocked the unit with tennis rackets, fishing poles, cooler, ping pong equipment, books, and a small collection of movies. Also hair dryer, iron and ironing board, beach towels, bath towels, all linens are provided.

To keep the cost to a minimum please take care of our place as you would your own. We supply cleaning supplies for just daily cleaning, we will ensure that final cleaning is done to ensure that everyone will love and enjoy our condo from day one.

Our only request is we want to share our happiness with everyone, we hope you will enjoy is as much as our family!

Fantastic apartment in a great location with everything laid on and incredible views - faultless

  • 5 of 5

An absolute gem of a condo, beautifully kitted out with incredible views over the gulf.

Comfortable beds, fishing rods and bikes provided, a kitchen with everything you could need and a trouble free reservation process with helpful and responsive owners. The pool is great, the fishing was good, there are excellent restaurants nearby and good spots to visit in the area.

The icing on the cake was watching the dolphins hunting in the "pond" in the front of the complex. We had a great time. We are regular visitors to Florida from the UK and this is a place we will return to.

Very highly recommended.

GREAT Vacation Condo with Lots of Extras!

  • 5 of 5

Ray and Kathy have a Great Condo with all types of extras for guests to use! It was a Terrific updated unit that was very clean and comfortable w/fun beach décor. They offered Beach Towels, Fishing Poles, Tennis Racquets and Bikes! It had the Best Sunsets Ever. We loved going to the lagoon and fishing from the on-site Bridge. It was like being on a tropical island connected to the property. From the Bridge, we saw Manatees, Dolphins, Countless Stingrays, a Turtle laying eggs on the bank and many types of Fish. Our Teens loved the Ping pong, pool, workout facility, snorkeling in the lagoon and the sandy beach as well. It was a grand holiday that left everyone Ready to go back! Thank you Ray and Kathy for sharing your beach home with us! We look forward to returning another time, for more adventure :).

Sincerely, The McCann Family

Great location, what a view, especially loved sunsets from the comfort of our balcony!

  • 5 of 5

What a relaxing vacation! I brought my Mom and Dad on vacation to Florida and stayed at your incredible condo on the gulf coast. Dad was able to go fishing right across at the small walking bridge, he saw dolphin, stingray and even a manatee. Me and Mom hung out and relaxed at the pool, water was wow, comfortable. Location was great for sightseeing. We went to my favorite Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park to see manatee, John's Pass for the dolphin boat tour and Weeki Wachee State Park for Mermaid show. Great trip, great condo had everything we could need, clean. . . . and did I mention the view of the Gulf from our balcony. Can't wait to go back!

Car: recommended

There is so much to do in this beautiful, quiet community. You are within driving distance to Disney World Resort, Universal, Busch Gardens and Sea World.

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

The private nature trail is a great family thing to do, you can spot different birds to include Bald Eagles and in the crystal clear water numerous fish, stingrays,dolphins and manatees (added photos from Memorial Day of the wild life.)
