My wife runs our Veterinary practice and I am an Engineer working for a large building products company. We have an 20 year old son and 10-year old twins!

John Bridenstine purchased this house in 2013

Why John Bridenstine chose Hudson

We had been planning to buy a waterfront vacation home in the lower keys form many years since we vacation there every year. When we were finally able to purchase one we realized it was to far to maintain & enjoy regularly so we found the next best area for us.

Very good. There was a lot to do in the area.

  • 5 of 5

We came from SC to go to Weeki Wachee state park and see the mermaids. The water is very cool (74) but that's because it is a natural spring. It was a lot of fun and would recommend it. If you like to snorkel, kayak and paddle board there are a lot of places to go in the area that are beautiful. Would definitely come back.

Quiet, comfy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Despite being a Florida native, I have never visited this area of Florida. My husband and I wanted to visit the area and some friends were interested in coming along. We had a great time! The house is very comfortable. The internet worked great (I had to work remotely every morning for an hour). The pool was lots of fun, and so was waving to the boaters, lol. We enjoyed Tarpon springs, the Greek food, shopping, and spent an entire day in the pool relaxing and hanging out. We grilled lobster, shrimp and steak on the outside grill. The house was very clean, and everything we needed was already in the kitchen. We look forward to going back! Thank you for letting us enjoy your house!

Outstanding Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is well maintained and spacious with three large bedrooms, family room, dining room, kitchen, two baths, and sitting room. The home is located near the end of a cul-du-sac with very little traffic. This is the fourth year we have been here and enjoy it very much.

The back yard over looks a canal which connects to the Gulf of Mexico. It is very relaxing to sit in the back yard and watch the fish jump out of the water and see them swim around at night. They have added an above ground pool in the back yard since we were here last year.

It is far enough away from the heavy congestion of many parts of Florida, but within reasonable driving distances to Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Orlando.

We enjoyed visiting the USA, Webster, and Oldsmar flea markets along with Renningers Antiques.

We purchased a combination season pass to Busch Gardens and Sea World and took advantage of the many free concerts provided.

We have visited the manatees at Homosassa Springs and TECO power plant.

John and LeAnn, the owners are most gracious hosts, and very eager to make our stay enjoyable. We would highly recommend this property.

Great Location, nice house. Would recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days here over Christmas/New Years 2016 with our adult children. The house is on a nice quiet neighborhood. Was a great location to water, beaches and other sites we wanted to see. There are several grocery locations within a mile. The house had everything we needed, we enjoyed sitting outside at night with the firepit. The kayaks got used several times and everyone enjoyed that.

The house has washer and dryer which I appreciated since we were on road for over 3 wks total. Plenty of dishes, pots and pans, coffee pot, toaster, even had several larger dishes which was good to prepare Christmas dinner. More then enough towels for bathrooms.

We meet the owner when they took their boat out, very nice people. We would definitely recommend this house to friends and would return if in that area again.
