About John Bridenstine

Both my wife & I were born and raised in Florida. After living in Miami for 20 years and Saint Petersburg for 10 we now live in Dade City about an hour east of Hudson Beach. My wife runs our Veterinary practice and I am an Engineer working for a large building products company. We have an 18 year old son and 8-year old twins!

John Bridenstine purchased this house in 2013

Why John Bridenstine chose Hudson

We had been planning to buy a waterfront vacation home in the lower keys form many years since we vacation there every year. When we were finally able to purchase one we realized it was to far to maintain & enjoy regularly so we found the next best area for us.

Bring your boat

  • 5 of 5
After looking for hotels for the Labor Day weekend we decided to look to rental houses. We found this house and it was the perfect location, perfect size and very well kept. We brought our boat and docked it right at the house, the boat ramp is only a mile away and we were fishing in the Gulf from the house in just a few minutes. The house is very comfortable and everything you need is there. There were just the two of us so it was very comfortable, there are some great restaurants very close by (Best of Philly was our favorite) and WalMart and Winn-Dixie are just a 5-10 minute drive from the house. We had the chance to relax and escape while still be close to everything.
The only thing I would say, I would not recommend this house for people with smaller children or toddlers. The home does have glass top tables and has one small step going from the dining room to the Florida room which could make it "challenging" for little ones. We would definitely rent this home again...but maybe when it is a little cooler and the fishing is better!

Great Home!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed out stay here. Home all the space and amenities you could possibly need for a great vacation. Kids loved the kayaks and fishing off the dock. Very comfortable and clean. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting a nice family getaway from the hustle and bustle of the typical tourist chaos. Also, many shops and restaurants close by when needing to get out.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words Katrine! My family loves to go there to play there as well. My teenage son likes to have frends over to go skiing and my 8-year-old twins love to swim & fish off the dock while my wife & I enjoy a relaxing barbeque.

A Great Retreat from the Northern Cold Climate

  • 5 of 5
We also booked this retreat on short notice and were overjoyed with our experience in Hudson. The photographs on the VRBO site accurately represented the amenities this home has to offer. This home is truly a gem - spacious, well-maintained, clean, well-decorated rooms, with a variety of supplies (sheets, towels, kitchen ware, etc.). The layout allowed us to have our own space when our children and grandchildren visited. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, and the mattresses very comfortable. After preparing food in the well-appointed kitchen, all six of us were able to enjoy meals together in the spacious dining room, then retire to the family room with its comfortable reclining chairs. We truly enjoyed relaxing on the floating dock daily. Our adult children explored the community on the bicycles provided, and family members are hoping to get the kayaks into the water on a future trip.
Hudson is close to Tampa where we ventured to attend the Florida State Fair and Busch Gardens. Day trips also included visiting Orlando (Sea World), Tarpon Springs, Howard Beach, Weeki Wachee (our grandchildren were absolutely mesmerized by the mermaids), and Clearwater (Ruth Eckerd Hall where a host of celebrities perform).
This Hudson home is close to a variety of shopping venues, as well as fabulous restaurants (we highly recommend a trip to Harold Seltzer's). We are already planning a return trip to this fabulous Hudson home next January for five weeks to beat the cold.
Thank you, John, for helping make this one of our most memorable vacations to date!

Wish we could have stayed longer

  • 5 of 5
Booked this house on short notice to extend our vacation by a few day. House is well appointed and beautifully decorated. The rooms were larger than expected and very comfortable. John was a pleasure to deal with and answered any questions we had. Loved sitting on the floating dock. A nearby light in the bottom of the canal attracted all sizes of fish after dark, almost like being at the aquarium. Not much traffic in the neighborhood, make biking or walking very easy. Would love to come back when we could stay longer and take out the provided kayaks and do some exploring or fishing.
