About David Dilday

I have always enjoyed real estate and the water. Have lived in the Tampa Bay area for more than 20 years. Love getting out and enjoying the water and all that the area has to offer. Enjoy fishing and cooking fresh fish for my girls.

David Dilday purchased this house in 2012

Why David Dilday chose Hudson

This is like a piece of old Florida with it's quaint little towns and water front restaurants. Love the direct access to the Gulf, fishing, crabbing, kayaking, and watching sunrises and sunsets. Sit and relax under the shade of the old pecan tree and feel the cool breezes and listen to the sound of the birds as your stress melts away. Very relaxing and peaceful. It is very close to most major attractions like Busch Gardens, MOSI, Disney, Clearwater Beach, Tarpon Sponge Docks, etc.

What makes this house unique

Love getting up early in the morning with cup of tea or coffee and watching the sunrise over the water.

Also love having a great meal at Sam's on the Gulf and then going for an ice cream at the Ice Cream Shop down the street.

Equipped with kayaks and bikes for your enjoyment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Relaxing Canal Oasis

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week at our canal home in Hudson as a way to see another part of Florida and a chance to add a week on our way to our spring vacation in southern Florida. Paradise Palms is very well equipped and we enjoyed the relaxation and serenity of the quiet canal front for morning coffee and lazy afternoons.There was lots to do - walks to Hudson Beach, using the bikes and the kayaks and exploring places of local interest up and down the coast. It was a nice home away from home.

Great Stay in Hudson

  • 4 of 5

The property itself is nice- good beds, good bathroom, convenient kitchen (no dishwasher but ok for us), great big tv, wifi, nice canal view and nice towels and linens. Perhaps the only improvement to the house would be a carpet change- it's a little worn.

I'd not hesitate to rent this one again!

We would stay here again !!

  • 4 of 5

We would give it a 4.5 star if it let us. The little home was cozy and had everything we needed. The neighborhood was older, but nice and the neighbors we had come across were pleasant. The views were nice and it was real pleasant to sit out in the afternoon/ evenings in the back yard or the dock within the nice canopy of trees. We had fun using the kayaks a couple of times and feeding ducks some watermelon

The location was great and within minutes of an ice cream shop, restaurants, and beach. My husband would have preferred a TV in the bedroom, but I enjoyed the quiet. The master bedroom was roomy and had a nice amount of windows. The landscaping was nice also and it was great having the carport to park under. We also thought it was well worth the price we paid.

We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to friends and family

Car: recommended

Come enjoy the relaxing, quiet, tropical breezes of Paradise Palms. Watch a beautiful sunrise over the water, go fishing off the dock, go kayaking or bike riding to the beach with the included kayaks and bikes.

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 many great beach restaurants within a mile – Sam’s Beach Bar, Inn on the Gulf, Hurricane Hanks and Ollie Oysters. There are several stores within a mile of the house, including a Wal-Mart Supercenter, Winn Dixie Grocery, and Walgreen’s Drug. There are several major restaurants, a shopping mall and movie theatres a short drive away. A major hospital, Bayonet Point Medical Center, is less than 5 minutes away.

A little farther south is the famous Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks where you can walk the streets of this quaint Greek town and enjoy their delicious food. Traveling further south are the cities of Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg. Enjoy Busch Gardens, MOSI, or any of the numerous beaches. 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. If you don't have a boat there are a number of nearby marinas that offer boat rentals.
