This private home will invite your vacationing side as you sip your morning coffee watching the morning sea life from your backyard patio and even out on the dock! With John's Waterfront Paradise II there are few better ways to spend your time fishing, swimming, floating on a raft, sunbathing or kayaking, watching the wildlife and other boaters share the day on the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The front and back are beautifully landscaped with a friendly tropical feel. This 3 bedroom home sleeps 8 total with 2 in each queen bed and 2 more in the Futon sleeper sofa. Both the dining room and large family room feature beautiful views of the water. The split floor plan gives the master suite privacy. A floating dock is available for you to dock your boat with deep water access to the Gulf!! Free use of two tandem kayaks.

If you want to rent a boat, there are a number of marinas close by (within walking distance). The canal is only minutes away to the Gulf of Mexico. You can sit on the fabulous deck and enjoy your morning coffee/breakfast or have an enjoyable dinner out on the deck, with a beautiful view of the canal and spacious pool. Sometimes you might get lucky seeing dolphins or manatee swimming in the canal right off the deck. Smoking is not allowed inside.

Hudson Beach is very conveniently located. There are quite a few restaurants close by if you like eating out. There are 3 restaurants and a small local beach within walking distant from the house.

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 Hudson

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.

This rental had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and has lots of gathering areas for hanging out inside and out. The pool and deck area is where we spent a majority of our time. The boys even caught some fish off the deck! Thanks John for being available when we had questions. We'll be back!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at John's Waterfront Pool Home in Hudson Beach. First of all, the home was immaculately clean. It was well appointed with high end furnishings, appliances, and everything required to provide for your needs. We enjoyed the heated pool as well as the pool table. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful and close to stores and other places of interest in the area. I would highly recommend this home.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time. We went kayacking off of the deck. Swam in the warm pool. Played pool in the den. The separate bedroom was a nice touch for my daughter in law who has Lupus and needed the separation to rest. I would recommend that charming place to everyone!! Thank you for a best time!!!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived about an hour early but house was ready. VERY pleased with house, the furnishings, the rooms, and loved the pool and the pool table. My son was the hit of school when sharing what they did over the summer. Not the standard "I went to the beach" answer but "I kayaked in the Gulf of Mexico and saw manatees". What a great memory! One of the best rentals our family has experienced. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation and would stay here again! The cottage style home is spotless and located in a quiet older neighborhood close to everything you need. Excellent for relaxing. John is super nice and quick to reply to messages. We enjoyed the heated pool and kayaks a lot. Sams Beach Bar is just a couple blocks away. Also, Get Hooked Grill has excellent food and just a couple blocks from the home as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Thank you, John! Lori, Polly, Morgan and Everleigh...
