Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Jeff and I (Eileen) are long-time Floridians and have lived in various parts of the state. This property is one of our favorites and we live in it ourselves for part of the year. We have been renting this property out since 2007. We have really enjoyed our renters and do everything we can to ensure the comfort of our guests.

Why the Owner Chose Hudson:
The Estates is a beautiful golf course community. While it is close to shopping, restaurants and numerous activities, it is quiet and safe. A major consideration for us was that, unlike the majority of vacation areas, there is an excellent hospital less than two miles away, and all medical specialties are also nearby. In addition, one of the word's best airports, Tampa International, is less than an hour away and many cruise ships regularly leave from the Port of Tampa. Also, great neighbors!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Clubhouse has a swimming pool, exercise room, tennis courts, pool table, bocce court and shuffleboard court. There are weekly activites - bridge and other card games, also mahjong. Periodically there are various classes held in computers, aerobics, line dancing, painting, to name a few. There are also special events with dining and dancing.
