Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. Everything was very well thought out. Lots of entertainment for kids which was wonderful. After swimming in the pool and kayaking we settled in for the evening and played games which were in plenty. Our dog sitter canceled on us and we were allowed to bring them with us and was even offered cages. Very easy to work with. Thanks for the wonderful time!

Overall, I liked it!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed with my 3 adult children n 2 grandsons, age 12 n 10, they loved fishing off the dock n using the 2 kayaks included, the swimming pool also. Saw dolphin swim right by in the morning. Inside the house was very roomy and comfortable furniture, beds too. Outside, as I said, things were good. Needs work on the deck n ramp going to deck, very steep n slippery getting there, also needs a new railing going down ramp. Could use some upgraded outside furniture, that being said, we loved it. Had a great time there for my mom’s funeral 😢. We were able to have family members come n visit n cook together on the grill provided. Plenty of room for a lot of people. I would definately stay here again. Owners were very nice and easy to communicate with.

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our summer break at the waterfront home on Driftwood Drive.

The only problem we had, John was only a phone call away and dealt with immediately . A perfect host.

Perfect for a family holiday with bikes, kayaks, pool, pool (table type) and nice comfortable lazee boy furniture.

Would not hesitate to recommend to anybody.

Great house and great location to experience Gulf Coast Florida

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this house because we loved it so much. The house has everything we wanted (pool table and pool), and including great amenities we never even used (kayaks, bikes, outdoor grill). This house is perfect if you want to go experience some of real Florida including Homosassa Springs and Weeki Wachee to the north and Tarpon Springs and the whole Tampa Bay area to the south. And if you just want to stay at home and relax, you can't beat the backyard pool just inches from your back door. Nothing better than looking up at the palm trees and the birds in the backyard. Thanks for a great vacation.

We loved the property, very convenient.

  • 4 of 5

Thanks! It was a great stay. The house was very comfortable and well stocked. The pool was great and we loved the kayaks. The house was clean and comfortable. The only minor issue was the railing going to the dock was in poor repair and the shed was getting a bit out of control with the items people leave behind I assume. The pool guy came on Tuesday and put some chemical in the pool but by the end of the week it was pretty cloudy. The house is very close to beaches and great places to eat. We would certainly return if we were back in the area!

About John Bridenstine

Both my wife & I were born and raised in Florida. After living in Miami for 20 years and Saint Petersburg for 10 we now live in Dade City about an hour east of Hudson Beach. My wife runs our Veterinary practice and I am an Engineer working for a large building products company. We have an 20 year old son and 10-year old twins!

John Bridenstine purchased this house in 2014

Why John Bridenstine chose Driftwood Isles

We had been planning to buy a waterfront vacation home in the lower keys for many years since we vacation there every year. When we were finally able to purchase, we realized it was to far to maintain & enjoy regularly so we found the next best area for us.

What makes this house unique

Incredible combination of proximity to open water by boat, huge pool, Pool table and large vacation home in laid-back community. Nearby restaurants and attractions are great getaway spots for a memorable vacation.
