Hudson Beach is a small relaxing beach, 5 minutes away from the house, where you can lay in the sun or play in the sand. There are also swings for the kids to enjoy. There are a couple of great beach restaurants within a mile – Sam’s Beach Bar, Get Hooked and Ollie Oysters.

A little farther north is Weekie Wachee Springs State Park, known for its mermaid shows. Only 1-1/2 hours east of us is Orlando famous for Disney World, Universal Studios & Sea World. If you're a golfer, there are a dozen or more courses in the area including one only a few miles up the road from the house.

Why Gail Currie chose Hudson

We love the water and boating and when the opportunity arose to purchase a home in this friendly community on the water we couldn't resist.

Somethings not in best working condition. TV difficult to figure out lack of picture. Best coffee might be at the BP gas station about a half mile or so away. Or buy your own coffee maker as we did after a few days. After all four mugs of coffee at$1.79 each plus tax made that a no brainier after vinager didn't get it working.

Temporary Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 5 weeks while waiting for our new home to close. It was a pleasure upon arrival because everything was neat and spotless. Well equipped, comfortable and relaxing. Beautiful canal site and plenty of amenities all around the area. Nice neighbors and a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for a place to feel at home while away this is the place to rent. Would readily recommend!!!

winter snow getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful month in this cute home on the canal. The home is very well maintained and contains everything you need to start your vacation. The neighbors on either side are very friendly and courteous, and the area is generally quiet. The large lanai provides plenty of space for watching the sunset and dining. Our first morning there we saw a manatee in the canal while we were standing on the dock! Many sea birds entertained us daily and we enjoyed watching the bananas grow in the backyard. There are several good restaurants in the area and numerous parks within 20 miles or so.

Plainfield, In.

Great waterfront home, with excellent owners.

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed the past 2 1/2 months in this home, beautiful back yard and lanai, along with excellent owners. Our stay was made easy with the owners who took care of any problems promptly. The neighbors on both sides are very friendly and enjoyed them a lot, they gave us lots of pointers of places to go and things to do. The house is very well maintained and more than served our purpose for the winter getaway.
