About Sergio Franciamore

We purchased this unit after we rented it for a week! 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 2012

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!

Lovely & Recommended!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and great impression of the condo everything about this place was exceptional, and I don’t give praise lightly . It was clean , stylish, room was very comfortable, where I sleep is very important to me and the bed is awesome. Also is a well-equipped kitchen. I was impressed by all of the utensils the owner provided. Really felt like home to me I even had beach towels. This was such a great place. The scenery was beautiful & the views extraordinary. I really enjoyed my time, I strongly recommended. All respect for Sergio who does a great job, very helpful providing direction and suggesting great restaurants; true sample of excellent hospitality. Thank you , for the use of your condo. It is all and more what you described on the web site.

Poorly maintained condo

  • 1 of 5

The best part was the view of pool and gulf of mexico. The condo had many flaws. The dishwasher was loose and very noisy you could not hear tv. Owner did nothing to remedy situation. Floors were very dirty needed to be cleaned. Dishes and silverware mismatched. Microwave ove stovenot working. Substitute took up to much counter space.. Linens And bath towels well past there prime. We bought for our use new bath towels.. Cooking pots and pans were well worn and not flat. Recommend facility but his unit better were available

Owner's Response: Every once in awhile you meet someone special! LOL it's amazing that with literally hundreds of people that have rented my condo in the years I've been on VRBO I've received nothing but rave reviews for the same exact unit and amenities... when someone first response is to complain about a squeaking closet door to the dishwasher is too loud it's obvious there is nothing you can do to make them happy... for what it's worth I would say my other reviews speak for themselves and the unit is impeccable... especially compared to most since it was completely renovated with granite porcelain tile and travertine and no expense spared about two-and-a-half years ago... the bed was $3,000 with built-in massage and raises and lowers by remote control.. anyway not going to waste my time responding to this someone special

Loved relaxing on the balcony

  • 5 of 5

Because of the Hurricane headed for Tybee Island, we changed plans and booked a last minute rental the day before we arrived. Lucky for us that Sergio had a cancellation and it was available. What a place!!!

The unit was clean and nicely furnished. There were sliders from both the living room and the bedroom to the balcony. We enjoyed sitting out and watching the wildlife. We saw 3 or 4 manatees and watched osprey fly right by and dive for fish. We watched fish jump right out of the water.

Sergio was very attentive to our needs -- answering our questions and making suggestions for things to do and places to dine. We ate at Sam's Beach Bar twice and Gianni's pizza once -- both recommended by Sergio. There is plenty to do in the area and between the pool, the health club, and the nature trail, there is plenty to do at the resort, as well.

Best place to stay...ever!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sergio's property for over a month until we could purchase a home and move closer to my new job at Moffitt. This place was so special! We spent mornings watching the wonderful wild life, enjoying the beautiful view while spending our evenings watching the sunsets and enjoying the night life at Sam's bar and grill. I am so thankful God put me in contact with this man Sergio as he was my rock and provided me with outstanding information about the area and provided us a wonderful place to stay!

Stay here for as many days as possible, it is a small piece of heaven!

One of the best

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding property. It was one of the best vbros we have ever stayed at. Serigo was excellent to deal with and all descriptions are accurate. The dolphins showed themselves from the first day. It was quiet, clean and yes the bed is fantastic. We hope to return. Thank you so much Serigo it was an amazing time!
