John Bridenstine purchased this house in 2014
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.
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.
Every other Christmas the family comes down to Florida. This year with a larger family we opted to rent and go some place new. This was a great decision. There was plenty of room and things to occupied a toddler, teens, parents and grandparents. We loved the heated pool and the private dock. We kayaked and paddleboarded to the Gulf and saw Manta Rays and Manatees.
If you are looking to do Tampa area attractions, check out CityPass. For the cost of admission to Busch Gardens, you can see 5 attractions including Busch Garden, the Tampa Zoo (which has rides), the Tampa aquarium and Clearwater Marine Aquarium ( home to Winter the dolphin), plus either an Art museum or MOSI.
Thank you John for a wonderful home and a memorable Christmas.
The house is very spacious and has lots of gathering areas for hanging out inside and out. The pool and deck area is where we spent a majority of our time. The boys even caught some fish off the deck! Thanks John for being available when we had questions. We'll be back!
My family and I spent a week at John's Waterfront Pool Home in Hudson Beach. First of all, the home was immaculately clean. It was well appointed with high end furnishings, appliances, and everything required to provide for your needs. We enjoyed the heated pool as well as the pool table. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and close to stores and other places of interest in the area. I would highly recommend this home.
We had such a great time. We went kayacking off of the deck. Swam in the warm pool. Played pool in the den. The separate bedroom was a nice touch for my daughter in law who has Lupus and needed the separation to rest. I would recommend that charming place to everyone!! Thank you for a best time!!!
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.
John was always available and gave valuable helpful hints that made our stay even better, Local food and entertainment was a plus with the children. Pool table was a great plus. The house was beautiful and spacious,
The children really en joyed the pool. All in all we had a great trip and would recommend this place to anyone looking to spend some quality time with family and friends. Thanks you John for sharing your home with us.
