|Minimum Stay||7 - 31 nights|
What a view! An extra wide canal bordered by a wetland area and a large spring. The locals call this canal Hudson River. As the weather cools, manatees come to enjoy this spring. Come see for yourself. The property has two 20 ft. docks, one is stationary, and the other is a floating dock which is perfect if you bring your boat. There is direct access to Gulf with only a 5 minute boat ride.
This 2 bedroom 1 bath home has been remodeled to take advantage of the view. The entire wall that faces the water is a bank of large windows. There is ceramic tile throughout for easy care, and an updated bathroom. This property sleeps 6. The master has a king size bed, and the second bedroom has twin beds. The sofa converts to a double bed. For your enjoyment there is a new flat screen TV with cable, Wi-Fi, and a gas grill on the screened patio. The dining area features a fireplace that is for decoration only. Check out the view from the “upper deck” of the home. Please enjoy smoking in the outside areas only.
Within walking distance are the restaurants Hurricane Hanks, and Get Hooked, and with a short 5 minute drive are many more. Enjoy walking on Hudson Beach, then stop in at Sam’s Hudson Beach Bar and Restaurant to enjoy the sunset and dinner. There is an abundance of public golf courses close by, many parks and recreation areas, as well as plenty of shopping opportunities.
Please give us a call with any questions. We would love to meet you on the phone.
We wanted to purchase a property on the water but did not like the feel of most of the canals in the general area. When this property with the open view of the water and wetland area came available, we jumped on it.
Within less than 2 miles is a small beach and many restaurants. Some restaurants are even within walking distance. It is not unusual to see manatees and dolphins in the canal and you'll enjoy the variety of birds visiting the dock as well.
Rod and Kathy's rental felt just like home. Exceptionally clean and quaintly decorated. It was centrally located for access to shopping, restaurants and beaches. We spent quiet evenings on the dock drinking wine as well as rowdy evenings at Mike's Dockside or Sam's Beach Bar. Would recommend this to friends.
I just spent a month at this wonderful, comfortable cottage. I could not have made a better choice. It was so relaxing and accessible to all of my needs. Rod and Kathy were the most pleasant people and I was lucky enough to have met them within my stay. When I got there, I could not believe how comfortable I felt, right away. They had prepared the cottage with all the things that you could possibly need and more....
The area was nice to do daily walks and sit down by the marina, on the bench, and watch the sunset ...right around the corner...It was also close to all kinds of shops and restaurants, going north or south on Hwy 19....
At the house, there were many different birds that visited and were great to watch...which they came and visited on daily basis. The manatees did come in a couple of days during my stay, so that was also very nice to have seen. If you like to fish, all you have to do is just sit right outside and enjoy!
I also really enjoyed the screened in porch. I sat out there for most of my stay, loving the breeze that came in.
This had a quiet and peaceful neighborhood and of the neighbors, that I did meet...they were all very nice.
I am looking forward to going back again, I hope, soon! I will really miss this place. I felt really at home and hated to have to leave.
WOW!!! What a great vacation house and location. No need to put the top up on the Jeep with the covered parking and the gas grill was handy for lunch & dinner even if the weather said "no". First time I'd seen Manatee and they greeted us upon arrival. The neighborhood was awesome for walking our dogs. There was very little traffic and plenty of sidewalks and sights. You could even walk to an Ice Cream stand but we chose to drive. We loved the whole package so much we've already booked a return visit. It's close to stores, beaches, dog parks, restaurants and very close to the Gulf. The house was gorgeous and fun, inside, outside and on top of. The pictures do not do it justice.
This wonderful little house was a slice of heaven for many reasons. First, the house was adorable, clean and well stocked, the view was amazing from the decks and entire living room and second, the home and it's entertaining view helped speed the recovery of our mother after her surgery. She was able to sit in one of the big recliners in the comfort of the livingroom and watch the fish jumping, birds nesting, several manatees float by and laugh at the family trying their hands at fishing off the floating deck. The evenings were cool and beautiful on the deck. There's a screen porch and observation deck as well. We could not have asked for more! Also, the local restaurants were great if cooking is out of the question. Last but not least, the owners were so gracious and accommodating and we can't thank them enough for sharing their home with us. We will be returning as often possible!
Property was clean and relaxing- owners were wonderful. The house had all that we needed. The stationary dock and floating dock were really great .Canal was awesome- we had a momma and baby manatee in the canal all day the first day we were there. Saw manatees several other times in the canal.Saw mantees, dolphins, stingrays and numerous fish in the gulf as well as all the birds.
We loved our stay, we didn't want to leave. We will be back!
