About the Owner

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.

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.)

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 .

Immaculate taste of Old Florida

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully kept, decorated unit perfect for a small family or two couples. Superb location for exploring down Pinelllas coast (Tarpon Springs or Clearwater) or up towards Spring Hill and Weekie Wachie. Great deck and canal-front/dock for lounging or canoeing with manatees.

If you want a taste of Florida as it once was, this is your place.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

While we couldn't catch any fish from the canal, we still all had a great time. The property has about all the kitchen necessities, what wasn't there we bought and left for the next people.

The bed in the smaller bedroom was comfortable and the other party said their bed was a bit more firm. The decorations are exact and decorated perfectly. I would like to have Bev come decorate for me.

The area is small (Hudson) but we managed to get to the horse races in Tampa, as well as restaurants. Plus Hudson has some nice places too. We really enjoyed Get Hooked. We visited there 3 times as well as other local spots.

I wouldn't hesitate to rent here again.
