1. One TV ? for the three bedrooms and large entertainment area that sleep 6. We Have rented several homes in the area all either have two or more smaller smart TV's in bedrooms( especially master bedroom).
2. In addition, "very limited" TV programs on the one TV. Mostly reruns and QVC types of viewing.
3. Air handler needs attention in the "garage". 20 years in HVAC business and Damaged Control Engineer USN,Retired. The house itself , bedding, floors, counter, linen...supplies were great. The four star rating has more to do with the air handler then the inside of the home.
4. The vacuum beaterbar was not functioning ,would suck up dirt but given the new vinyl flooring installation it might of been disabled on purpose.
Please note: For the price, location,overall appointments in the house we would certainly rent this unit again for an extended time( one exception the air handler issues must be addressed).The friendliness of the neighbor beyond the house was a nice experience given we are renters.
Thank you for you comments. As to the TV's, as a waterfront property, most people come to enjoy the outside so having multiple TV's and an extensive cable lineup is not something anyone else has commented on.
As to the air handler, we are unsure as to what you are referring to as the "vacuum beaterbar" but we will have a licensed air conditioning tech look at the unit.
We are happy that you enjoyed your stay.
The property is as pictured and described. Please note that you do have to walk into one of the bedrooms to use the bathroom. Communication with the property manager was easy and he was very responsive. Overall we had a lovely stay and the property was a good value.
Thank you Julie for the nice review. We are glad you had a nice stay. We hope to see you again soon.
We really enjoyed our stay at your place in Hudson. It was so roomy and comfortable. The backyard on the canal was perfect- we spent many afternoons in the lawn chairs enjoying the wildlife and cool breeze - it ended way too soon! We will be back, Lord willing, and hopefully for two weeks instead of one. Thank-you for listing this great getaway!!!
Thank you for the great review!you were an excellent guest. We look forward to your return!
Very reasonably priced. Amazing views.
SO glad you had a good time. Please come back again!

This area is referred to as the Nature Coast. The waterfront is mostly natural areas of marsh and mangroves. Great fishing in the clear and warm Gulf waters. Fish the "flats" or go deep sea fishing- we have both!
The here is slower paced than the East Coast of Florida and without all the traffic but that doesn't mean we don't have fun! Many affordable restaurants nearby including family -owned and theme restaurants.
Boat rentals are nearby but we provide paddle boards and kayaks at no extra charge. There are several beaches nearby. However, the best beaches in the country are located in Clearwater and St. Petersburg, just a 30-45 minute ride south. You can swim from the rear floating dock as well if you don't want to drive. In the summer, the Gulf temperatures can be in the 80's F.
A short drive is Weekie Wachee Springs, hoem of the Weekie Wachie Mermaids. There is a small theme park there with water slides and an underwater mermaid show. But I think the best part is the river. Imagine a spring feed, crystal clear river where the water is a constant 72 degrees all year. You can rent a kayak (or bring your ours) and paddle down river for hours. See fish, manatees, otters, birds, all kinds of wild life. The best part is they pick you up at the end of your trip and take you and the kayak back to the start.
Want more excitement- Busch Gardens and Islands of Adventure are 45 minutes south. Do you like the theme parks in Orlando- that is about a 2 hour drive. Nearby is horseback riding, golf, shopping malls. Museums are in Tampa and St. Petersburg.
There is so much to do nearby- come and see for yourself!
