About Sergio Franciamore

We purchased this unit upon entering and seeing the view we realized why we moved to Florida! (Northern Transplants) This secured community epitomizes Florida living at its best. to us. We completely renovated the unit because this is our 'staycation' retreat. We have many animals because we run a rescue so we really can't go on vacation but we definitely don't mind! We go often when its not rented for sunset dinners, bbq's, game room and boating not to mention all the other activities. Me and my family love it here and we are sure you will too!

Sergio Franciamore purchased this condo in 2014

Why Sergio Franciamore chose Hudson

Florida Living at its Best ! Local fishing, clean and secure surroundings. Pet friendly (small pets) plus beautiful weather numerous amenities including local golf courses, private tennis courts, Olympic size heated pool game room. In short amazing resort style living for relatively little money.

What makes this condo unique

To be 100% honest we purchased the unit because of the amenities, but really because of the amazing view and sunsets!

Our family had a wonderful vacation we were surprised & delighted with this lovely property. The condo is beautiful & the amenities impeccable, very clean. Every room was perfect for our needs, we enjoyed using the kitchen, it had everything we needed for meals we felt like at home. In the evening we enjoyed sipping wine on the balcony overlooking the gulf . We loved The location and the facility has a large pool area, gym, tennis court and beautiful views, plenty of parking , restaurants and grocery stores. Excellent service Sergio is exceptional and very accommodating, he couldn’t do enough for us! We definitely be back!!

Very nice Condo with all the essentials

  • 4 of 5

Overall very nice experience at the Gulf Island Condo. The condo has everything that is needed for a long stay and a very nice view of the Gulf and small natural harbor (?). We saw dolphins playing in the harbor one day and walked the nature trail once. Unfortunately we caught the coldest 3-4 days they have had in that area recently so we were a little limited in what we could do. The condo was a little light on supplies like trash bags, dishwasher soap, and toilet paper, which I ended up buying. Not a big deal though as there is a Dollar General right across Hwy 19 and plenty of grocery stores within 5 minutes. If you want a quiet area at a great price and don't mind a bit of a drive to the beach, this is the place for you!

The perfect spot for an extended stay as well as a quick visit to Florida.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 3 recently went to this area specifically to discover it. Great place for relaxing its quiet and calm. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Our room was roomy, comfortable and just what you would want in a room by the water. However, everything there is too old and the room needs renovation.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation with your family at my condo. I do strive to make an excellent experience for all my guests and take away pieces of advice from constructive criticism... although in this case I am a bit confused since almost all the furniture is less than 2 years old... If you read the other reviews ...no one at all has mentioned anything about old furniture! in fact to the contrary it has been renovated less than two years ago....

Nice place

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and well stocked. The pool was empty due to maintenance. Definitely not Sergios fault, but it would have been nice to know in advance if for no other reason than to manage expectations of our children. The area has some beautiful things to see. Definetly worth the money and was better than anything that would have been provided by a hotel.

Owner's Response: I am glad you and your family enjoy your stay... I do apologize of the pool was out of service at the top of your stay However I could not advise you since it was an emergency repair..and the owners were not advised until a few days before the repairs were to commence. once again sorry for the unfortunate situation and if you would like to book again I would definitely give you a discount ..have a good one take care!

Excellent stay, but second bedroom had a fan instead of air conditioning

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well kept. The view was beautiful. The air conditioning worked great in the master bedroom and main room, but not the second bedroom. We agreed to use a fan for our guests in that room. It worked pretty well, but it was not as good as air conditioning. Note, we stayed during a very hot Labor Day weekend. The owner did a great job communicating and offered to resolve the issue for us, but we agreed to use the fan instead. He was very accommodating and thorough in his communications. I would highly recommend this condo if you don't need air conditioning in the second bedroom.

Great location and amentities!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a wonderful 5 day stay here at the Gulf Resort! Nice pool size pool, amazing view of the Gulf of Mexico. Sergio was very kind and accommodating! His place is fully equipped with everything you need, very clean!

Yesterday was had some surprise guests in the lagoon- 3 dolphins came in under the bridge we were standing on and gave us a show not once but twice in one day!

Nearby are two great restaurants. We had dinner twice at the Inn on the Gulf and over the weekend Sam's Beach Bar has live music. Food at both places are excellent! I highly recommend the Admiral Feast of you go the the Inn. We also took a trip to do some kayaking in Port Richey and then went up up Sunset Park beach for some swimming.

We will be back, kinda would love to move to Florida some day! Thank you Sergio!
