                          • 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. ...moreless

                            We spent six weeks in this clean, well maintained home on the canal. It is very typical of the "old style" Florida home and brought back many memories of growing up in Florida. The spacious dock area has lots of comfortable seating and a table for outside dining. The enclosed Florida room was the perfect place to curl up with a book when inclement weather arrived. The owner was easy to deal with and took care of any concerns we had.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, pet owners, families with young children, sightseeing.

                            Thank you for sharing your home. I have never rented in this way before, and am quite pleased, so much better than a hotel. Kids, dogs, and adults all had an excellent time. Next time we are in the area we will be sure to stay again.

                            We really enjoyed our stay at Paradise Palms. The house is very warm and cosy. We were impressed by how well the house is taken care of. We felt comfortable from the moment we stepped inside. It was too cold and windy to fish but took a day trip to Tarpon Springs which was really great. Thanks for everything.

                            Very comfortable home and lovely location. Unfortunately I was in the area for a family emergency and not on vacation and needed a place near the hospital. Was very pleasantly surprise with this lovely home, private little back patio area to relax on, kayaks and bikes available for our use. would recommend using VRBO when looking for a rental.

                            The home was completely remodeled and very clean. The kitchen and laundry were well stocked. We usually stay at Siesta Key, so we were a little disappointed with the Hudson beach not being what we expected. (No fault of the owner.) The bikes were brand new. We enjoyed our bike trips. The weather was cold, so we did not use the kayaks. Hudson is mostly a boating area. They had a very large TV, which was great for watching the Bowl games. Yes, we would recommend this home to anyone.

                            We came down to Florida for a long weekend with my son and brother. We only wish we could have stayed longer. The house was wonderful. Clean and fresh! The sunrise over the water was a perfect way to start our fun filled day. We kayaked into the Gulf of Mexico.The Kayaks were so easy to launch with the floating dock right in the back yard. After a morning of exploring on the water we pulled our kayaks up and had a waterfront lunch. My son loves to fish and caught snapper, grouper, ladyfish, an eel, and puffer fish. He was thrilled!! We all went to the beach for dinner (just down the road) and ate at Sam's on the Bay while watching a magnificent sunset. Get there early because there is usually a wait. The beach is very lively with many shops and restaurants. If you are looking for a truly tropical vacation surrounded by water then you will love this property! This was one of our favorite trips to Florida and we will be booking another stay at this property soon.

                            I really enjoyed my stay at Paradise Palms. My favorite spot was sitting in the back looking over the canal. It was beautiful watching the sunrise, fun to see the ducks swim by and fish jumping, and so refreshing to feel the evening breeze at sunset. I tried out the kayak, which was pretty easy to paddle, once I figured out how to go straight! I went out to the Gulf, but not really into it, and just stayed near the grasses growing there. It was an easy expedition for someone who is not used to that kind of activity. I would recommend that visitors should try Sam's for a nice evening meal watching the sunset over the Gulf. Thanks for providing a relaxing break!

                          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.
