If you are looking for a waterfront vacation with a Key West feel, then this is your destination. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! This home is located toward the end of the exclusive peninsula of Driftwood Isles and is at the end of the road. Once you arrive you will notice that the house is spread over two lots with vacant lots on both sides. Beautiful canals border two sides of the property. If privacy is what you want then this is it.
Step into the front door to a beautifully remodeled home done in colors with a Key West theme. Both bedrooms feature walk in closets. The living room boasts a queen sleeper leather sofa in front of a 50" large screen tv. The dining area overlooks the Florida room and oh, what a room it is. 12'X30' long and completely shielded from the elements (if you want) or open one of 11 large screened windows to let the Gulf breeze through.
Walk out through the Florida room into the back yard and be prepared to have your breath taken away. The view is spectacular with water all around. Sit on the patio and have coffee or under the corner umbrella to enjoy a cold beverage. Dolphins and manatees are almost a daily sight as they move through the canal or into the Gulf. Like to fish? Snook, snapper, redfish, sheepshead and large jacks all swim in front of the seawall.
Got a fishing boat? Tie it to the floating dock and keep it secure while you stay. His and hers bikes are provided so you can take a ride around and see the sights. A one car garage and two covered carports keep your vehicles out of the weather. Like palm trees? There are no less than 39 palm trees on the property and one of the largest ear trees that you will ever see. The shade covers all of the Florida room and part of the house.
Sitting out on the patio by the water at night is an experience that you won't forget. The neighborhood is VERY quiet at night .

About Ron Mattson
We are Ron and Lynda from Winter Haven, Florida. Lynda is a mortgage loan officer and Ron is a blueberry farmer. We are both lifelong Floridians and absolutely love the Gulf. We bought this house and worked like crazy over the last 2 years to make it our own. That's why it doesn't look like a rental because we remodeled it the way that WE wanted. We never had any intentions of renting it but had an opportunity to purchase another home in the same neighborhood so we jumped on it.
Ron Mattson purchased this House in 2014
Why Ron Mattson chose Hudson
Two words: The View. Two more words: The Location. Driftwood Isles is kinda like it's own little world. Not part of town but close enough to bike ride there. Stuck out into the Gulf of Mexico, it has to be seen to be believed. Friendly mallard ducks, squirrels, all the wildlife that you could possibly want to see. Eagles, ospreys, diving birds, pelicans, parrots all call this area home. Just north of here is a wildlife preserve.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the property the day we saw it and put an offer in on it that day. While it didn't look like it does today, the potential was always there. We had been looking in Hudson for over 2 years before finding this home and knew it was the one when we saw it. The feeling of being on the water and this close to the Gulf is unbelievable.

Want to stay here forever
This is our 2nd stay at this house. It is still as great as the first time. It is in a great location with a beautiful view of the water and in a peaceful, quiet neighborhood- yet conveniently located close to good restaurants & grocery store. The house is beautifully decorated and the best stocked house I've rented with kitchen items, supplies & linens etc. We enjoyed using the bikes and kayaks provided. The owners are great people and made sure everything was in order for us. Dolphins swim by the house most days and we even saw a few off season manatee. We will be coming back for a 3rd visit.
Although it was a cool March in Florida the house was fantastic. Positioned perfectly on the Gulf, with water on both sides, the views are super & the Dolphin visits most days. Inside the home was spotless with all the necessary things one needs plus some unexpected items. Convenient to shopping & restaurants it's a superb location yet secluded too. Hope to be there next year once again.
We really enjoyed our five days at flip flop house. Pros: beds and linens nice. Couch nice. Interior of house very nice. Great places to eat esp Sam's bar. Great food and drinks reasonable. We liked everything about this house. Only down side is sidewalks and entrance into front door are cracked and trip hazards. Would replace sidewalks for sure. Uneven surface at front door.
Would stay again. Dock needs to be replaced. We did not use it. Owners great. Stay here but just watch your step. Dolphins fun to watch in am. Well equipped kitchen.
We stayed at the "flip flop" house February 2018. The house was very comfortable and we immediately felt at home. The house is well equipped with everything you might need and more including 2 bicycles we rode everyday through the neighborhood. The area is very quiet and relaxing with shopping and restaurants only a few minutes away. The highlight was having the dolphins come greet you in the backyard each day only feet away. Thanks again to Ron and Lynda for a great experience!
Great place. We really enjoyed sitting outside watching the dolphins and fish. House is wonderful and very cute. Don’t forget your flip flops! If ever in Hudson again would stay here
Hudson is a VERY laid-back town with a Keys kind of feel. No trip would be complete without visiting Sam's on the beach for waterfront dining and ice cream. A lot of accessible areas for bike riding.
