About Rick Akins

Owners grew up in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Florida. Owners live around the corner from the rental home in a new home. Owners have lived in Hudson and frequent the places mentioned in the summary. Owners are also avid golfers and boaters and can assist any folks with information about both sports. Owners say - "Once you experience the world of Hudson Beach you will not want to leave!"

Rick Akins purchased this house in 1993

Why Rick Akins chose Hudson

Owners originally purchased the property to live in. Owners just moved to a new home they built around the corner. New home is in the same neighborhood as the rental. Owners love the area and have made it their retirement base.

What makes this house unique

Owners fell in love with the home due to the location of Hudson Beach and the canal in the rear of the home. You can fish off the dock or walk to the beach. The sunsets are breathtaking every night. The bars and restaurants are full of locals and vacationers to bring about different cultural experiences too. However, Hudson is also minutes from chain restaurants, shopping centers and other points of interest. It is quite simply a very unique small beach town.

Disapointed only stayed one night

  • 1 of 5

We were not satisfied with the holiday rental property and only stayed one night. The property was clean so no complaint in that area.

In general terms (with the exception of the refurbished bathroom) the property furniture, fittings etc are of poor quality.

The furniture and soft furnishings are not as shown in the photos on the web.

The outside area is in poor condition and again furniture not as shown on the web due to the overall condition we were not happy to use the outside space.

Security was an issue there is no alarm or safe fitted and the doors have only the original locks and no extra key locks fitted apart from a code lock on the back door to the garage.

I have registered a complaint with VRBO and requested refund of 4 days rent from the owner. Since then he has posted a video on the web which does show the true state of the property but has refused any rent refund. If we had seen the video we would not have booked this holiday let .

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed my stay as did my dog, and my family and friends who visited with me. Rick and Jennifer were very accommodating and answered any questions or needs I had. The beach is a short walk from the home as are many good eating and/or drinking establishments. The house was clean, had a well equipped kitchen and roomy bedrooms with comfortable beds. My dog took to the doggie door immediately which I appreciated. I would recommend this home as a great place for a family get away.
