About Sergio Franciamore
We purchased this unit 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 2014

Relaxing Quiet Getaway
My family and I like to visit Florida for our annual vacation. However, we usually like to be away from a lot of the noise and crowds, but still have access to amenities. This was the perfect spot for us. The unit was clean and cozy. It included all the necessities we required for the week. We didn’t have to worry about people partying until late hours. It was a safe, quiet, and relaxing getaway. In the morning we could see dolphins, stingray, ducks, and fish off our balcony. The grounds were beautiful. My daughter and I went exploring and we were able to see the most beautiful sunset. The pool area is well kept and the pool is large enough for everyone to enjoy. There was a nice mixture of retirees and families.
While we were in Florida we visited the nearby Crystal Springs and kayaked with the manatees. We also visited Coquina Island which is a must. It is a gorgeous natural beach with wildlife and gorgeous water. Sam’s Beach Bar is a must to visit, and is a quick drive from the condo (less than 5 minutes). I’ll be dreaming of their fresh Mahi-Mahi tacos until I return again.
Sergio was such a great help during our stay. He helped offer places to go (like Coquina beach and Sam’s), and was always available if I had any needs or questions. He made sure the unit was stocked with plenty of clean towels and sheets and went above and beyond for us. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, low key experience this spot is just the place!
Awesome! So happy to hear you and your family really enjoyed yourselves makes me happy to be able to share my condo and make other people feel welcome in this little piece of paradise! Again so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon .. Regards Sergio.
best spot for anything you want to do
Thank you so much! Safe travels!
The Condo was Exceptional. As all Condos it was spacious; But the ambience, was theraputic to me. The Decorum and themes, down to the aroma therapy was unique and made me feel at home. I personally needed this particular stay after months of transition and stress. This Condo home provided me a piece of heaven on earth for a window of time. I want to soak it all in! Well worth it!
Thank you and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay I was with all my guess I try to make it there stay a memorable one! Many of my guests love the aroma candles that I have situated around the condo but of course there are optional whether you want to use them or not... anyway have a safe trip back and hope to see you again soon thank you Sergio
We (2 adults, 1 child) really enjoyed our time at this condo. The views are beautiful. The condo is spacious and in good shape. It was clean and everything worked as is should. Sergio was always available and willing to help. Although we never needed him. Everything went smooth.
The property overall was really nice. The pool was great, it was always busy but never overcrowded. My ten year old loved it. We saw dolphins and manatees in the lagoon most days. The nature trail around the lagoon was cool too. We used the tennis courts everyday and also spent time down in the game room.
This condo complex is mostly full of snowbirds and long term renters. Everyone was VERY friendly and made us feel welcome. 24 hour security at the entry gate kept everything safe and quiet.
The town of Hudson does not have that "tourist trap" feel. It was mostly locals or long term renters. Sam's Beach Bar and The Inn on the Gulf over at Hudson Beach were both good spots for a meal. Great pizza at Gianni's. If you want the "tourist trap" experience take the short drive down to Tarpon Springs.
Overall we had a great time. I would recommend this place to a friend.
Thanks for having us Sergio-
Thank you so much it was a pleasure having you as well... I do feel this is one of the Hidden Treasures in Florida which is exactly the reason why I bought at this complex... even though technically I'm not a baby boomer which it is perfect for I do enjoy the amenities and location immensely.. of course only when it's not rented which doesn't leave much time! LOL very glad to hear you enjoyed yourselves... that makes it worth while doing this!
Quiet, relaxing environment - beautiful views!
My husband was not a Florida lover, but after our stay he changed his mind and wanted to return next year. Our condo was in a perfect location. The view was amazing and we never got tired of looking at the water. We saw dolphins right in front of us and a lady I spoke with told me she had seen a stingray in the lagoon. When the wind slowed down, we could see the bottom of the lagoon perfectly and watched many fish.
Our weather wasn't perfect, but we still enjoyed every minute. The pool was wonderful and never busy. The nature walk was very pretty and do-able. There were many places to walk in the neighborhood and the area was generally very quiet and peaceful.
The condo kitchen was very well stocked. We like to cook and found everything we needed. Sergio had great suggestions for places to go out to eat or to visit. We loved Inn on the Gulf, Sams (go early) and Get Hooked.
The condo was very comfortable and included lots of extras - like toys for the pool, telescope, binoculars, comfy furniture and beds. We would recommend this to our friends and hope to return.
It was very nice to meet both you and your husband very happy you enjoyed my condo! I always try to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible... I do love the amenities and the views as well it never gets old! Anyway good luck with your Marathon glad you used the neighborhood and the sightseeing to enjoy your runs! I hope running by the Gulf gave you more motivation! LOL
Nice facility with nice people.
Countless amenities located nearby including world class golf courses, beaches, restaurants, malls and cinema's.

Enjoy the private mile long Nature Path which surrounds the complex. Enjoy watching many different species of birds and fish including Dolphins and Manatees! You can also fish from many different areas around the complex or just enjoy sitting on the benches watching the boats and wildlife!
