Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: I am a retired insurance executive with a passion for sailing and won't turn down a game of golf. We originally bought the house for Terri's parents to retire, use as a second home (had our own room) and place to keep our boat. Once both were gone we decided to renovate and enter the VRBO world as this has been such a joy for Terri's folks and us through the years and we felt it needed to be shared. I have been active with the Hudson Beach Yacht Club for over 10 years and was the Commodore in 2007 and 2014. Terri and I are looking forward to having one of the best property's around.
Why the Owner Chose Hudson Beach Estates, Hudson, FL, USA:
If you like the water and a nice retreat from the rat race this house and Hudson is right up your alley. We have owned the home for over 25 years and it was home to Terri's folks until both were gone. We have sailed and weekended there the whole time we owned it and absolutely love how comfortable the house is. It's been a great Escape for us throughout the years - thus the genesis of the name of the property. We know you will love all aspects of staying in our 2nd home. The layout of the house makes for very comfortable living conditions. The 3rd bedroom/den can be an ideal place for older kids and is close to the 2nd bathroom. The Florida room is a great extra getaway especially now that we've added air conditioning. The large deck and spacious pool will give you hours of enjoyment. The deep water canal gives direct access to the Gulf and is ideal for boaters. The floating dock has electric service and water and can accommodate most boats. As a guest at Escape you are considered a welcome guest at the Sea Ranch Civic Association which has a lot of great events, classes, and dances. Great chance to meet some mighty friendly folks.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hudson is a gem on the Gulf. It is a friendly small town near virtually all the major Florida attractions. Home to the Bonati Institute which is Internationally known for laser back surgery. We are 1.5 miles from the facility and have a number of guests from there. As a guest of 'Escape' you will have full guest privileges at the Sea Ranch Civic Association which is only two blocks away. They have lots of events every month including exercise classes, dances, cards and an all you can eat pancake breakfast the 2nd Saturday of every month for only $4.00. Disney and all the 'Orlando Stuff' is only 2 -2.5 hrs depending on where you're going. Tarpon Springs and the famous Sponge Docks area is only 15 minutes. Tampa - including the International Airport - sports venues and cruise docks are a 40 -60 minute ride via a nearby expressway. Close by is the historic Tarpon Springs and it's Sponge Docks. Also nearby are some of the top ranked beaches in America at Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island, Howard Beach, and Clearwater Beach.
