About William and Beverly Petit

We retired to Hudson in 2007 from Tampa and live 2 houses away from the cottage and will be glad to help you enjoy all that Florida has to offer. I was born in Tampa and enjoy fishing and boating.

Why William and Beverly Petit chose Hudson

We always wanted to retire to a place on the water and Hudson is the ideal place to enjoy the climate and sunshine of Florida.

What makes this house unique

We have made the "Cottage" into a place you will enjoy and cherish. It can be your home away from home.

Serenity at last

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival it was a vision of relaxation. The soothing colors, the dock and canal, the coziness of the cottage. Bill and Bev did an outstanding job with the decor from the little Christmas decorations to the Sea shells placed through out. My family of 5 were very comfortable here and had an excellent time canoeing, fishing, boating, beach going, relaxing by the fire with family and friends, and Barbecuing. the house was Very neat and Clean, and Bill ( a laid back and personable gentleman) was a phone call away for anything we needed. My Wife and I have lots of family in Florida, and Had invited My wife's mother and father, and my mother to the house to spend time together, well as you know slowly but surely everyone started coming over, and before you know it we had a BIG family gathering. The house held up perfectly(although i think bill might have had a heart I informed bill of the gathering earlier in the day because i was a little worried, and he just said plain and simple..."I want you to Enjoy yourself and have a good time", and that was exactly what we did. Older kids went canoeing, the younger children were fishing, and playing tag, while the adults enjoyed the warm sun off the dock or were seated in the lanai area which had a table and seating big enough for everyone to sit down and eat in comfort. This was our first time renting a home instead of staying in a hotel, We would have never been able to enjoy the company of our families if we were in a hotel, Due to this experience renting a home for vacation will forever be our choice I cannot say enough about "Salt Life" It was a vacation that was Long over due.... Thank you Bill and Bev for allowing us the pleasure of experiencing The serene environment of Salt Life.

Cozy cottage with a pier!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time!! My family of four and our two dogs fit comfortably. I would definately return if Bill & Bev will allow us. Our dogs loved running around the huge back yard.

The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need on vacation. Their attention to detail deserves praise.

Great winter getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bill and Bev's bright and pleasant home from Feb. 1st to Mar.14th. The home was very neat and clean with just about everything we needed. The owners were very accommodating and helpful in getting us around the area since we have never stayed in this part of Florida. The weather was beautiful with lots of warm and sunny days. The neighborhood was quiet and being on the canal made for a relaxing environment. We were even treated to a dolphin show in the canal. We spent most of our days on the large screened porch which allowed us to enjoy the outdoors. Thank you Bill and Bev for sharing your home. Nancy and Bob (upstate N.Y.)

Virginia is home for us .

The pictures don't do it justice, I fell in love with the house as soon as I opened the front door.

  • 5 of 5

The house is super cute and the furniture is great I am looking for the couch and chair for my house now . Loved being next to the water ,my daughter caught a 12 inch flounder and was super excited. The house is located near an ice cream shop and grocery stores, shopping and if you visit you have to go to the sponge docks in Tarpon spring. It was nice having washer and dryer to use . Any one looking for a place to stay should stay here. Thank you for having us .
