              Car: Recommended

              Come enjoy the relaxing, quiet, tropical breezes of Paradise Palms. Watch a beautiful sunrise over the water, go fishing off the dock, go kayaking or bike riding to the beach with the included kayaks and bikes.

              Hudson Beach is a small relaxing beach, 5 minutes away from the house, where you can lay in the sun or play in the sand. There are also swings for the kids to enjoy. There are many great beach restaurants within a mile – Sam’s Beach Bar, Inn on the Gulf, Hurricane Hanks and Ollie Oysters. There are several stores within a mile of the house, including a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Winn Dixie Grocery, and Walgreen’s Drug. There are several major restaurants, a shopping mall and movie theatres a short drive away. A major hospital, Bayonet Point Medical Center, is less than 5 minutes away.

              A little farther south is the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks where you can walk the streets of this quaint Greek town and enjoy their delicious food. Traveling further south are the cities of Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg. Enjoy Busch Gardens, MOSI, or any of the numerous beaches. A little farther north is Weekie Wachee Springs State Park, known for its mermaid shows. Only 1-1/2 hours east of us is Orlando famous for Disney World, Universal Studios & Sea World. If you're a golfer, there are a dozen or more courses in the area including one only a few miles up the road from the house. If you don't have a boat there are a number of nearby marinas that offer boat rentals.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: I have always enjoyed real estate and the water. Have lived in the Tampa Bay area for more than 20 years. Love getting out and enjoying the water and all that the area has to offer. Enjoy fishing and cooking fresh fish for my girls.

              Why the Owner Chose Hudson:
              This is like a piece of old Florida with it's quaint little towns and water front restaurants. Love the direct access to the Gulf, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and watching sunrises and sunsets. Sit and relax under the shade of the old pecan tree and feel the cool breezes and listen to the sound of the birds as your stress melts away. Very relaxing and peaceful. It is very close to most major attractions like Busch Gardens, MOSI, Disney, Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Sponge Docks, etc.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Love getting up early in the morning with cup of tea or coffee and watching the sunrise over the water. Also love having a great meal at Sam's on the Gulf and then going for an ice cream at the Ice Cream Shop down the street. Equipped with kayaks and bikes for your enjoyment.
