About the property

800 Sq Foot Penthouse Private Rooftop Patio with LOTS of EXTRAS!

#1 Rated VRBO rental in Hudson, FL with million-dollar views of the crystal clear coastline of the Gulf of Mexico. You will fall in love with this appealing 733 square foot penthouse vacation rental condo that boasts a private 800 square foot rooftop patio for a total of over 1500 square feet of living space. The combination of indoor and outdoor living space can comfortably accommodate 4 guests making it the ideal spot for a couples getaway or a small group of travelers.

This is a completely renovated condo with the best of everything! Stunning wood look tile planks, stainless steel appliances, high-end Dekton counter tops, new kitchen cabinets, new bedroom and living room furniture, double vanities in the bathroom and a 55” Ultra HDTV Flat Screen in both the living room and the bedroom. We offer comfortable sleeping arrangements for up to 6 guests via 2 guests on the Queen bed in the bedroom and in the living room we have a sofa sleep that will accommodate 2 guests, a loveseat sleeper that will accommodate 1 guest and a closet based sleeper to accommodate 1 more guest.

Keep in mind, you will spend most of your time entertaining outside on our private 800 square foot rooftop patio that is nicely furnished with an outdoor teak dining table, teak chairs and benches and nautical décor (don’t be fooled by other listings as their private balcony is a 8'x3' foot balcony which is not the same as our rooftop private balcony). As an added bonus, you don't have to sunbath with the common folk in the pool area with everyone else gawking at you. We have two super comfy chaise lounge chairs we just added to the private rooftop balcony so you can soak up the sun in complete privacy! There is also a second smaller 8'x3' private balcony to gaze at the magnificent view of the Gulf - the scenery here will simply take your breath away!

Everything you need to feel as relaxed as possible during your stay is here, including a full kitchen, dining table with 6 chairs, and comfortable living room, where you can gather with your loved ones after an eventful day in paradise. We also provides high-speed Wi-Fi internet access and cable TV. A coin-operated washer and dryer are located on our floor for your laundry needs.

We also include lots of extras with our rental! You want to paddle board in the private lagoon out front or into some of the mangrove areas? No problem, we include two paddle boards for you to use. You want to kayak in the lagoon or out in the Gulf? No problem, we include two kayaks for you to use. Are you more of a pool person? We got you covered too! We include a really cool pool noodle swim chair to relax in and we have an assortment of pool noodles for you and your friends to use so you can just relax in the pool. We even have two bicycles for you to cruise around the trails or the canals. What other rental includes all these extra things?

The condominium complex is very well maintained and has gated security 24 hours a day, in addition to an assigned indoor parking space for the unit that is directly across from the elevator. Throughout your stay, you and your companions will get to enjoy access to the array of recreational facilities available for guest use within the complex, including a large heated swimming pool that is kept at 86 degrees year round, private lagoon and beach (you can sit for hours and watch the boat traffic, the osprey and eagles catching fish, and look for the porpoises and manatees that frequent our lagoon), nature walk, kayak/bicycle storage, tennis courts, gym with exercise classes, and a clubhouse with assorted games such as pool and ping pong. The private community beach is the perfect place to relax or cook up your catch of the day, while the kiddos play at the resort's playground. You’ll find great boating opportunities nearby as well, and boat rentals are available.

Close to Tampa (approx. 45 minutes from the Tampa airport), St. Petersburg and Clearwater beaches.

Quaint, Quiet, Secluded with wonderful amenities. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the atmosphere here so much. The view from the rooftop deck was spectacular in the early mornings and in the evenings. The paddle boards and kayaks that came with were utilized willingly! In the evening hours around sunset on most nights, dolphins would swim into the lagoon; a thrill to see. I would recommend a rental car to get to see sights around the region (Sands Key Beach and Tarpin Springs are our choices) although there is plenty to do if you want to be casual/lazy and stay on the resort. Great fish markets, seafood restaurants, grocery shopping, ice cream parlors all 2 to 5 minutes drive away.

Room is VERY quiet at night. We slept with patio doors open even. It is worth noting that the snowbirds and residents are EXTREMELY friendly and welcoming. They filled us full of information. Worth the drive from the airport.

Amazing condo, amazing view!! Can’t wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The kids said it was their favorite vacation ever. This condo had everything we were looking for in a vacation! Water activities for the kids, an awesome workout room for my husband and fantastic view for me!! All the extras this condo offered made this vacation special. Loved the private balcony and seeing dolphins and manatees in the cove was so cool. The pool was huge and so warm, loved that it was in the shade most of the day so we didn’t have to worry about the kids getting sunburned as much. The kids LOVED playing in the cove with the paddle board and kayak, dolphins even swam around them while they were out there! Everyone was so nice at the resort. Bob was great, and always quick to respond to all my questions! We want to come back again for sure!

The property was lovely. Exactly what we were looking for. The view was spectacular.

  • 5 of 5

Property was perfect. All amenities you could want in a vacation place. The views from the rooftop patio were spectacular. It was the perfect spot for breakfast, dinner, and sunset cocktails. Pool and beach were available to us but we chose to be lazy and stay upstairs on the patio. Condo was extremely clean and comfortable. Huge TVs. Hope to go back again.
