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!

Amazing complex, loads of wildlife, best pool of anywhere I've stayed.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time, not knowing what to expect of the area. I can say it was great. Sergio was very helpful, and was always quick to reply if you have any questions. The first morning there we saw loads of dolphins right off of our balcony. On the third day there, my wife got to assist with Florida wildlife people with rescuing an injured bald eagle, what an experience! Our first walk along the water we saw so many different kinds of birds, and a flock of stingrays. Everybody there was super friendly, and this place is hands-down the best bang for your buck for a vacation spot. We definitely plan on staying here again in the future.

Very relaxing vacation spot.

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed here for our Spring Break. The view from the balcony is absolutely beautiful. You can see the sunset from here and watch the wildlife swim past. There was a stingray right below the balcony one morning and we spotted dolphins from there. We also enjoyed the nature walk around the property. One evening we were able to spot dolphins feeding in the area. They were so close!!

This condo is close to so many activities. We saw the sponge docks in nearby Tarpon Springs and went to Homosassa to see the manatee. There are also numerous beaches and state parks.

Sergio told us about some local restaurants to try and my family enjoyed them. The calzones at Gianni's were great and my daughters enjoyed the ice cream parlor. We will definitely be back for another vacation here.

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!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay... as far as the items you mentioned I got with the maid and took care of that.. little miscommunication that won't happen again. As I mentioned in the ad there is a small private beach on premise.. great if you want to just relax with a drink and get the sand between your toes and a little Sun without the crowds! 😆 but if you're looking for the bigger Beaches they are within a 30 minute drive... thanks and hope to see you again.

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!
