About Sergio Franciamore

We purchased this unit after we rented it for a week! Upon entering and seeing the view we realized why we moved to Florida! (Northern Transplants) This secured community epitomizes Florida living at its best. to us. We completely renovated the unit because this is our 'staycation' retreat. We have many animals because we run a rescue so we really can't go on vacation but we definitely don't mind! We go often when its not rented for sunset dinners, bbq's, game room and boating not to mention all the other activities. Me and my family love it here and we are sure you will too!

Sergio Franciamore purchased this condo in 2012

Why Sergio Franciamore chose Hudson

Florida Living at its Best ! Local fishing, clean and secure surroundings. Pet friendly (small pets) plus beautiful weather numerous amenities including local golf courses, private tennis courts, Olympic size heated pool game room. In short amazing resort style living for relatively little money.

What makes this condo unique

To be 100% honest we purchased the unit because of the amenities, but really because of the amazing view and sunsets!

Loved relaxing on the balcony

  • 5 of 5

Because of the Hurricane headed for Tybee Island, we changed plans and booked a last minute rental the day before we arrived. Lucky for us that Sergio had a cancellation and it was available. What a place!!!

The unit was clean and nicely furnished. There were sliders from both the living room and the bedroom to the balcony. We enjoyed sitting out and watching the wildlife. We saw 3 or 4 manatees and watched osprey fly right by and dive for fish. We watched fish jump right out of the water.

Sergio was very attentive to our needs -- answering our questions and making suggestions for things to do and places to dine. We ate at Sam's Beach Bar twice and Gianni's pizza once -- both recommended by Sergio. There is plenty to do in the area and between the pool, the health club, and the nature trail, there is plenty to do at the resort, as well.

Best place to stay...ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sergio's property for over a month until we could purchase a home and move closer to my new job at Moffitt. This place was so special! We spent mornings watching the wonderful wild life, enjoying the beautiful view while spending our evenings watching the sunsets and enjoying the night life at Sam's bar and grill. I am so thankful God put me in contact with this man Sergio as he was my rock and provided me with outstanding information about the area and provided us a wonderful place to stay!

Stay here for as many days as possible, it is a small piece of heaven!

One of the best

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding property. It was one of the best vbros we have ever stayed at. Serigo was excellent to deal with and all descriptions are accurate. The dolphins showed themselves from the first day. It was quiet, clean and yes the bed is fantastic. We hope to return. Thank you so much Serigo it was an amazing time!

Weather was great, it was 80+ everyday! Except one!

  • 5 of 5

Surprised at the size, we expected it to be much smaller. So fun to look out and see the water, and sit out on the patio and have our coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. Only stayed a week, wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the area.Bed was comfortable.
