About Don Himes
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 - Yellow BR) 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.
Don Himes purchased this House in 1987
Why Don Himes chose Hudson Beach Estates
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.
What makes this House unique

Great location and property
The escape on the gulf was a great vacation spot, close to many near by attractions.
Hudson beach stay
Our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. Everything that we needed was there for us. It is a very relaxing place and to see the dolphins in the canal was very enjoyable to watch. I will most definitely be back.
Thanks for everything Don
You will never forget a sunset at Sam's on the Gulf nor an ice cream treat from the Hudson Ice Cream Shop.
