About Jack Hudkins

Our family purchased the condominium in July of 2012. We have another condo in Punta Gorda and love Southwest FL. We have been looking for a place on the beach when we found this unit. Our family enjoys vacationing in SW FL because there is so much to do and you don't have to do anything to enjoy it.

Jack Hudkins purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jack Hudkins chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

You won't find a better value with a location like this. A very short walk will put you right on the beach. Everything you need to have a great trip is here. Many restaurants are within a 10 minute walk. A beach canopy and ice chest are provided in the storage closet along with boogie boards. Great place to search for shark teeth and shells. A covered parking spot will keep you vehicle cool and protected. The pool is heated and has a beautiful view of the bay.

What makes this condo unique

Privately owned with care and touch noticeable in the decor and furnishing however onsite manager available to help with any problems. Plus you can be on the beach in minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great beach condo, you are practically on the beach. The condo is very well equipped with everything you could need for an extended stay. Kitchen is as nice as the pictures. Eating seats 4 around the table and 2 by the bar. We were 5. Grandma, 2 kids and us and we fit great. One more would have fit on the trundle. The kids obviously wanted the sleeper sofa in the living room (with the large flat screen) while grandma got her privacy.

The pool across the road by the bay side was heated. Kids loved that in January.

Will definitely come back if we head to Fort Myers area next time.

Thanks Jack, and thanks for excellent communications!

Great location, very friendly people, lots of things to do!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed on the gulf side, nice renovations to kitchen and bathroom, could probably use an update on furniture in living room but they were comfortable. Laundry was fine and very accessible. Huge TV's! Shower could use an update but functioned fine. Overall we were very pleased with property and location and will look to come again in the future!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo had everything you could have ever needed! It was fresh and clean and well appointed ! Loved that we didn't have to carry a key with us to the beach! The beach was private and beautiful!! It was nice to have beach chairs available as well as beach towels. You could see the ocean from the room even though the condo itself isn't facing the ocean and it did not matter because we didn't stay in the room anyway.

The kitchen was well-equipped. This allowed us to cook breakfast and lunch daily. We enjoyed the local restaurants that were very close for dinner .

Being a one bedroom the space was very roomy for three women to share because there was a pull out couch and the extra Day bed which was in a room that could be separated from everyone.

We loved it! We will definitely be coming back again 🌴󝀡

Great location on a beautiful and quiet beach.

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed for our stay. We had 2 adults and 2 children. The size of the condo was perfect for our family. It was nice that the kids each had a their own bed and their own sink and toilet area. The location was perfect. While on the beach we could see that Englewood beach was really crowded, but the beach area in front of the condo was nice and quiet with plenty of room for everybody. We went out one day exploring other beaches, but quickly realized that we had the perfect spot right in front of the condo and there was no need to go anywhere else. We did go out to eat a few times. The food at Flounders was delicious. If you want to try a local restaurant that is close to the condo, I would recommend eating there.

One thing I want to mention is that when we arrived we were not able to pull into the parking space because we had a cargo holder on top of our minivan. We ended up parking across the street in one of the few spots available for parking with a pass. One day when we returned from dinner all of the parking pass spots (2 or 3) were full, so we had to take the cargo holder off of the minivan. When we took it off and parked underneath the unit, we didn't realize just how low the clearance was and the back of the van ended up hitting the ceiling when we opened it. I just wanted to mention this so that potential renters will know ahead of time that there is very low clearance in the parking area under the condo.

The owners were quick to respond to any questions that I emailed to them. I hated to leave but we had to cut our trip short due to tropical storm Colin. We will definitely go back and stay there again.

Great Stay for Memorial Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great for my mom, myself, and two kids! The condo is great...especially kitchen and plenty of room for everyone. Master bed was very comfy and my son slept great on the daybed. Even with a pretty full complex for the holiday there is plenty of room for everyone on beach and at pool. The beach equipment was especially great not having to worry about bringing it with us. Beach was so close it was easy to go back and forth to room.

Great condo and location. Bed was a little too fluffy. Other than that we will stay there again. Had a great few days. Love the community and quiet beach.
