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.

Property was clean and well appointed. Great quiet family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the peaceful, quiet area the home was in. We were looking to avoid the "tourist trap" feel of more congested areas and this home was great for that. Needed amenities were all close enough but it was a bit of drive to the better beaches and restaurants, though still not a bad drive at all. If you want tranquil, family centered accommodations I would highly recommend this property.

So relaxing. Beautiful birds and sea life!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently returned from our Mother's Day adventure at this location...and it was phenomenal. I've stayed at a lot of vacation rentals...and this one has a lot of notable extras. First of all, the bird watching and wildlife was just phenomenal...near constant activity. If that is important to you...this is a great spot. Birds, fish, sting rays, reptiles...so many neat things to observe. The floating dock on the canal is where we spent a lot of our time...just chilling out, fishing, watching the sunset, and feeling the sea breezes. The fish are literally jumping out of the water of the canal every few minutes. We mainly caught catfish with a few small exceptions...but a larger fish ate a catfish that was on the line leaving only the head for us to pull up...so there are definitely bigger fish in there (such a surprising neat memory). The heated pool was awesome. There is a little cove with seating in it where the warm water rushes in. We named it Manatee Bay and spent a lot of time sunning there or looking at the stars. The house was very well appointed. Lots of little bits and pieces in the kitchen, fancy pool table, and nice furniture instead of the cheap, run down stuff often found in rentals. We had a luau barbecue on the deck. Made homemade ice cream in the ice cream maker. Tried out kayaks for the first time. The only thing that could have used a little updating was the poolside area. You had to be a little selective about which deck chair you choose, the bar is more for storage (not a wet bar), and it is an old fashioned bbq grill not a gas one (but it was kind of novel to use the charcoal when you're used to a gas grill). They do have a seasoned smoker though which I've never seen at a rental before. The front of the house is unassuming...but was exactly as described once you're inside. My favorite part was the giant great blue heron who came to visit us every morning of our stay. The area of Hudson itself is kind of limited in attractions...and the beach is a local beach and a bit rocky...but all of that kind of action is within pretty easy driving distance (15 mins to 2 hours depending on what you're going for). Anyway, if you are looking for a spot where you want a really relaxing place to unwind with your friends and family in a beautiful setting...this is a magical place. Highly recommended. I hope you have as much fun as we did!

We really enjoyed our stay at John's Paradise! All of the accommodations were great. From the open floor plan to the pool, it was just what we were looking for. Looking forward to going back in the fall!
