Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cottage in Sea Ranch On The Gulf - Cottage at the Gulf

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with private studio suite on 3rd floor. Sleeps 8

If you're looking for a relaxing get-away and traveling with a large family or group of friends - why not consider sharing the space and the cost without sacrificing privacy here at my cottage at the Gulf!

I refer to this house as a cottage because of its comfortable casual essence. But don't over-look its generous 2200 sq ft.size offers spacious rooms where families can gather together - yet still provides plenty of quiet spaces for those seeking some tranquil R&R. An indoor sun-room off the living room opens onto a large covered open-air deck with a comfortable outdoor sitting & eating area overlooking the deep water canal and expansive view of the Gulf of Mexico!! Watch the boats passing by en-route to the deeper Gulf waters and witness plentiful wildlife including frequent visits from dolphins and manatees.

The cottage layout is perfect for larger family events or can easily accommodate two or three couples traveling together with each having their own private bedrooms and baths.

3rd floor studio suite (4th bedroom) offers a unique private living area that includes wet -bar, mini fridge, flat screen TV, trundle bed and full bath.

Relax by the water on the patio / dock and enjoy grilling up some Steaks, Ribs and Seafood - sure to please the entire crew.

Fantastic fishing right off the dock!!

Please contact me for more info - I'd love for you to visit here and enjoy some reconnect time with your family and friends!

PLEASE NOTE - to contact me by email in the INSTANT QUOTE SECTION - you must fill out the Contact The Owner info section as well. Then I will get back to you as soon as possible! Thanks!!

About rspiech@aol.com

I additionally own / operate a vacation rental cottage in Lower Michigan on an inland lake since 2010. I'm drawn to the world of hospitality and thoroughly enjoy assisting customers by providing travel / vacation accommodations. I'm available to answer your questions regarding the cottage (house) as well as provide insight into the surrounding area. I take great pride in offering a casual and comfortable environment where you can unwind, relax and enjoy your vacation. I count it as a privilege to share in this small slice of your vacation and it's my hope that anyone who visits will depart with a renewed sense of spirit in some way!

rspiech@aol.com purchased this cottage in 2014

Why rspiech@aol.com chose Hudson

My husband's business in the produce industry brought us to this area over the past few years. This is a unique water-front community that is less congested than beach communities further south - yet is within a short drive to major attractions and all the cultural and sporting events in the Tampa Bay area.

What makes this cottage unique

One amazing aspect of this house is its location at the end of a deep canal that is direct to the Gulf of Mexico. Both the sky and water views are stunning and inspiring! The proximity to the Gulf also brings an array of salt-water fish, dolphins, manatees and water-fowl in the canal where you can appreciate an up close and personal viewing. Gorgeous sunsets nightly are a bonus!

If you are traveling with children - they will experience unique opportunities of nature - as well as be thrilled by the area theme park adventures.

For adults - The concert venues at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater are outstanding - as are the beaches.

What a great view! We were blown away by the house ( almost literally, the hurricane made for some STRONG winds). The house is huge with super decks, patios and dock. Very clean in and out. Comfortable beds and furniture. The canal ends at the Gulf about 100 yards away, so the view is incredible. Probably the best deal in the area. Way to go Robin- you made our vacation.

good value

  • 4 of 5

Nice property for a family or group wanting to be in scallop territory. The 3 bathrooms are a nice feature. Saw the green flash one day with 5 other people looking down the canal to several gorgeous sunsets in the Gulf. Lots of kitchen supplies. Super quiet and laid back location. Good location for a fun trip to Tarpon Springs and going out on an old-fashioned sponge diving tour and Greek food. Freedom Boat Club available up the road at Hernando.

Plenty of room for a large family

  • 4 of 5

This waterfront home offers great views -- including sunsets over the Gulf from large deck-- and comes thoughtfully and completely equipped. Lots of room for guests and comfortable beds. Convenient location -- quiet, yet just minutes from beaches, restaurants, and shopping.

the place to be in hudson

  • 4 of 5

We found the home to be neat clean well maintained and ready for our month of February 2016 stay in Hudson. A wind storm created some minor problems that the owners were able to rectify and give me a tutorial on how to launch the kayaks. The home had everything we needed to entertain our family and friends and everyone was impressed with the view.sorry to see the private cove oyster bar was no longer in business but found a suitable replacemant in the recently relocated get hooked grill.Only think missing was not having the big ten network on cable to watch the Michigan state Spartans

Excellent vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and spacious. We had plenty of room for our whole family. The view was spectacular from the balconies. The canal was directly in view, with the bay not far off. We saw several dolphins one day. Robin is an excellent host. She provided a crib for our grandchild in response to our request. She was available to answer questions during our stay and was always helpful.

The central location of the cottage allows you to discover the surrounding area's fun family attractions - and still return back in time to prepare a tantalizing barbecue and relax with a beverage all while viewing a gorgeous sunset as you unwind. Beautiful sunsets occur practically EVERY single evening here. It's awesome!!

To the South:

* Busch Gardens & Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa: approx. 45 minutes

* Clearwater Beaches: 30 minutes

* Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, quaint restaurants and State Park (scenic & great family swimming area): 20 minutes

* Waterfront Restaurants in New Port Ritchie: 10 minutes

To the North and East

* Disney World 1.5 hours

The kitchen is stocked with essential cookware items for easy meal preparations and several fresh fish markets within one mile ensures you'll have the opportunity to prepare tasty (and perhaps new) seafood recipes!

Sam's Beach Bar, The Cove, Inn at the Gulf, Get Hooked, and Skinnys are just a few of my top pics for casual beach style dining that offer a wide selection of food creations - and of course - the seafood here is simply fantastic!

The Hudson Beach Ice Cream Parlor is a local favorite!

Hudson has a friendly hometown charm and is convenient to major attractions which provides the best of both worlds for your vacation time.
