Space 2,200 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

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, sofa bed, balcony overlooking the Gulf w/magnificent view 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! NEW for 2018 - I'm an on-site host with a private office/suite on first floor level. Guests have private entry to all 2nd floor main living space and 3rd floor studio suite, deck, patio, grill and dock area. I'm available to offer info upon request - otherwise I leave you to your privacy.

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 The Owner

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!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2014

Why The Owner chose Sea Ranch On The Gulf

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.

Perfect for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is a wonderful place to take a family! It's a safe neighborhood with plenty of room. The two levels plus three levels of outside fun really are ideal for families with kids. It is centrally located to lots of things to do. We saw dolphins, stingrays, and tons of fish right at the house. The house is very clean and the owner is very fast with communication. My deposit was returned right away. This was our first time staying at the house, but not our last.

Great hidden place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great vacation home hidden in a quiet little cove in the Hudson beach area. Amazing access to the gulf and local attractions. The new Sunwest park only 5 miles away is AMAZING for the kids and has a beautiful beach. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house in a fantastic location next to the Gulf. Comfortable and stylish furnishings, nice spacious kitchen, lovely sun room and outside patio with gorgeous view. The upstairs apartment was also a great feature. The owner is a joy to work with, very helpful, responsive, and pleasant.

Reasons for 4-stars (vs. 5) are that beds and bathrooms are fine but not as nice as the rest of the house. The TV in the main living room is rather small with very basic cable, while the larger TV upstairs has only Netflix. It would also have been nice to have a screened-in deck.

Overall, this is lovely house and location, and we would recommend it especially for anyone wanting quick access to the Gulf.

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.
