Why Rafael Santana chose Hudson

Get V.I.P. treatment at Port Hudson Marina for all your boating needs. Get discounts on boat rentals and enjoy the FUN times at Anclote Island. Enjoy the blue-green Gulf waters that lap gently along the sandy beaches of the four islands that make up Anclote Key Preserve State Park - Anclote Key, North Anclote Bar, South Anclote Bar and Three Rooker Island. Located just south of Port Hudson Marina, Anclote Key Preserve State Park is accessible only by private boat or ferry service. The 403-acre park is home to at least 43 species of birds, including the American oystercatcher, bald eagle and piping plover. A picturesque 1887 lighthouse stands as a sentinel on the southern end of the island. Visitors can swim and sunbathe at the beach, fire up a grill and enjoy a picnic, or pitch a tent and enjoy a night of primitive camping under the stars.

What makes this estate unique

This waterfront home is full of FUN, with a Game Room to remember. It features its own bar, pool table, poker table, Ping-Pong table, electronic dart board, arcades...need I say more....get your competitive juices flowing with friends & family.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just as pictured ! The views off the deck are amazing - we saw the manatee, several dolphins, and many "lines" of fish going by!! Sunsets and mornings were beautiful. There was enough room for us and more. Close to golf, close to good restaurants, stores, etc. and equipped with all the conveniences of home. Beds were comfortable, house was clean, couldn't have asked for more! The last Saturday we were there we have family who lived in the area over for a cookout and no one was crowded, with plenty for all to do! Thanks so much Rafael for allowing us to rent from you!! Hope to be back next spring!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This home was just what we needed. We have 11 family members ranging from 66 to 10 months old. Plenty to do with the pool table, ping pong, darts, pin ball machine, and fishing in the channel. It keep everyone busy and having fun. We would do this again if the opportunity arises.

Expectations surpassed!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time spent in Hudson. Your place was beautiful and surpassed our expectations. There was way more space than we needed, it would be great for a family gathering. The games room came in handy at night and during the cold days. It was great having all linens provided and even some extras. The views and wildlife were amazing however at the time of our stay the "no seeims " were out. We enjoyed that all the amenities were close by. Also, we were very impressed that our deposit was returned in a timely manner.

Great House and Privacy

  • 5 of 5

I reserved this home for the week between Christmas and New Year 2016. My four adult children reside in three different states, along with their children. This was the first whole family vacation we'd had together in a number of years. This home had ample room for seven adults and four children. Easily could have accommodated more if needed. The lower level kept everyone occupied whether it was television, poker, family board games, pool, ping pong, darts or pinball. It anyone wanted privacy within the house it was also easily accomplished. The owner of the home could not have made this stay any easier, he was friendly, he communicated quickly as needed. This was quite likely the easiest vacation process I've ever had. My family told me this was probably the best vacation we ever had. We even hired a photographer to come to the house to take our family pictures and they as well came out amazing. Thank you Rafael for sharing your home with us.

Wonderful time at a great property!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a month long stay at this FUN Hudson property. It was everything it was advertised to be, and more! What I will miss the most is walking up the stairs in the morning and seeing the gorgeous morning view of the gulf from the expansive 'wall of windows'. The view of the sunsets in the evening from the second level deck was awesome. The house had everything you could possibly want in a vacation home. We enjoyed the fish jumping in the canal, the quiet streets for dog walking, listening to the live music while sitting on our deck, sun-worshipping from the large concrete deck, the short walk to the Get Hooked restaurant/bar, the friendly people, the attentiveness from the Port Hudson Marina personnel, and the availability of Rafael to respond to any questions. We had several friends join us for visits and everyone's re-action was the same - 'This house is amazing'. Everyone quickly adjusted to the sleeping arrangements in the house, which are a little unique, and no one wanted to leave. There was plenty of beds, linens, towels and toiletries for a large group. Really, all you have to bring is your clothing and the desire to enjoy your time there. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home ( I say 'home' instead of 'house' as you can just feel the love that went into decorating this residence ). We look forward to returning next year! Thank you!
