About John Bridenstine

Both my wife & I were born and raised in Florida. After living in Miami for 20 years and Saint Petersburg for 10 we now live in Dade City about an hour east of Hudson Beach. 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 2014

Why John Bridenstine chose Hudson

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

What makes this house unique

Incredible combination of proximity to open water by boat, huge pool, Pool table and large vacation home in laid-back community. Nearby restaurants and attractions are great getaway spots for a memorable vacation.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived about an hour early but house was ready. VERY pleased with house, the furnishings, the rooms, and loved the pool and the pool table. My son was the hit of school when sharing what they did over the summer. Not the standard "I went to the beach" answer but "I kayaked in the Gulf of Mexico and saw manatees". What a great memory! One of the best rentals our family has experienced. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation and would stay here again! The cottage style home is spotless and located in a quiet older neighborhood close to everything you need. Excellent for relaxing. John is super nice and quick to reply to messages. We enjoyed the heated pool and kayaks a lot. Sams Beach Bar is just a couple blocks away. Also, Get Hooked Grill has excellent food and just a couple blocks from the home as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Thank you, John! Lori, Polly, Morgan and Everleigh...

John's paradise 2

  • 4 of 5

The place felt like home. Very comfortable. Looked small on the outside but was extremely spacious. Had an issue with the pool but John had it fixed right away. Few issues with the house but all in all it was nice. Had 2 days of rain so the pool table was perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone. We want to thank John and his family for the stay.

Great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We came down to vacation from Pittsburgh with our daughters, my parents and my brother and his girlfriend. We had so much fun at this home!! The owner, John, was very quick with his replies to my emails and friendly. The home looks small from the outside but inside was plenty of room for all of us. We had planned on buying an air mattress for our oldest to sleep on but there was a very nice one already there! The house was very nicely stocked with necessities such as soap, paper towels, toilet paper, towels and kitchen utensils. We used the pool a lot- my 5 yer old learned how to swim in it!! The pool table was great for the evenings and when it was rainy. We saw lots of cool things in the canal such as manatee, sting rays, and various fish. You can kayak a short distance right into the gulf- beautiful!!

Overall this was a great vacation house that we would come back to!

Thank you!!

The best vacation we have had in years. We swam, fished.played pool and watched direct tv which we have at home but they have more channels. It was a very quiet neighborhood. I would recommend this place highly and would be glad to stay again.
