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.

It was just as described!!!

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!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. I liked that the property was quiet and private and not around the hussle and bustle of a resort, and yet close enough to the many great places to see and do on the gulf. I hope to plan to come again soon. The accomodations were superb and the weather was just great. Thanks for having us!!

Great spring break for our family!

We enjoyed every part of our vacation home during spring break. We enjoyed the kayaks and pool every day and we were close to many stores and restaurants in the area.

A week in Hudson

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time in Hudson at the house. The weather was great and we found the house was central to most of what we wanted to do. Paddling on the canal in the kayaks was a lot of fun and watching the wildlife was enjoyable. I hope we can schedule time to come back

A Special Christmas

  • 5 of 5

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.
