About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

You'll start to relax as soon as you arrive at your waterfront destination across from Hudson Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Our beach cottage is on a canal with direct access to the Gulf less than a minute away! Sit out on the lanai and relax as the sun sets over the Gulf. The interior lends itself well to a romantic getaway or a fun group atmosphere with an open floor plan connecting the kitchen, dining room, and living room. All have water views.

There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The master bedroom is a large space with a king size bed, ample furniture, and a large closet. The guest bedroom has two twin beds that can be pushed together to make a king when needed. A day bed with trundle completes the sleeping accomodations. The kitchen is fully equiped with open counter space and an island bar for additional seating.

Everything the description states. Great view, comfortable house, clean, we would definitely stay again and I'm sure we will. Owner called us to make sure all is well. I don't think we will be staying at a hotel anymore

Misrepresented, and unfairly treated

  • 1 of 5

House is appropriately priced, but getting in touch with the owner in order to get the keys was difficult. We had to contact him several times and eventually had to contact HomeAway in order to get the owner to call us back. After finally getting the key, we enjoyed our 3-night stay at the property. The house is not on the beach, it is across the causeway from the beach, requiring a 1.5 mile drive.

There was only 1 extra roll of TP in the whole house, and no extra trash bags.

Upon leaving the property, we were informed that we would only get half our deposit back because the house was "too dirty", and we were blamed for throwing a fish on the front lawn. We had washed the dishes, started the dishwasher, piled all the dirty towels in the laundry room. The owners could not report any permanent damage, but stated that there were too many "crumbs on the counter and in the sink." Despite paying a cleaning fee, I guess we were expected to clean the house too.

Stay at your own risk.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you feel this way about your stay at our Hudson Beach home. I do not recall any particular difficulty with you reaching me. I did grant you early check in and late check out and told you that I needed approx 1 hour notice prior to your arrival since I live in the next county. You texted me at 1:13pm that you were on your way with a follow up text at 2:15pm but I was turning into the driveway when I got that. We have never advertised our house is ON the beach. The house is located IN HUDSON BEACH, FL. Our pictures clearly show the Hudson public beach across the canal from the back yard. You seemed very dis-interested in hearing my walk through that I do with each tenant. You wanted to start your vacation and I understand that. But had you listened you would have known the location of additional TP and trash bags that WERE there. Cleanliness was definately an issue. My cleaing people said that the condition that you left the house was the worse she had seen, well beyond the normal wear and tear for a 3 day stay! And you really need to be honest about "crumbs" on the counter and sink. How about rotting lunch meat! I have pictures to back up my claim! And for the fish, again I have a picture of a rotting fish in the front yard. You were the tenant of the house and since you had a late check out, leaving shortly before the cleaners came at noon, you would have had to see, or at least smell the fish in the front yard. This is he first time we have ever held back part of the deposit, mainly because of the food in the sink and on the counter, and the rotting fish in the front yard. The rest of your mess could have been covered by the cleaning fee. As you say, owners: rent to these people at your own risk. I would NOT welcome them back.

Nice home on the water, loved fishing off the dock. Was able to catch several fish and crabs , also seen a dolphin from dock. Sitting out watching the sunset every night was beautiful.

Car: recommended

Local: Sams Beach Bar and Get Hooked are nearby with live music on weekends as you enjoy waterfront dining and drinks. Or enjoy a quieter dinner at Inn on the Gulf right across from the beach. There is plenty of shopping and many more restaurants along US 19 north and south of Hudson Beach.

Area: TOO MANY TO LIST! We urge you to Google visitor sites for Pasco County, Pinellas County, Hernando County, and Hillsborough County for area attractions, all within easy driving distance from Hudson. Our favorites are Weeki Wachee where you can see the Mermaids, Honeymoon Island always among the top rated beaches in America, and Busch Gardens. Major league sports include baseball, football, and hockey in Tampa and St. Petersburg (in season).
