About Dave or Anne Gleditsch

We're hard working folks with four grown boys that live in the foothills of Colorado - and love the time that we spend enjoying sunsets, fishing, and relaxing at our Sea Ranch home in Hudson.

Dave or Anne Gleditsch purchased this house in 2002

Why Dave or Anne Gleditsch chose Hudson

This relaxing home feels surrounded by water on the large corner lot - is minutes down the canal from the open Gulf of Mexico - has great views of the sunset from the bar on the enclosed porch. Hudson is a great small town - with fun restaurants, plenty of services nearby - and 45 minutes from the Tampa airport.

What makes this house unique

Large master suite - new refurbished boat dock - second floor porch looks out on the sunsets - swim dock with sandy bottom in canal for cooling off - several palms trees - cozy reclining couches to lounge on - short bike ride to ice cream, Hudson Beach, Sam's Beachfront Bar with live music.

Nicest House on the block

  • 4 of 5

The house was fantastic . It was everything the owner described and more. On most days my girlfriend paddle boarded well I went fishing off the dock . The house had everything you could think of and some things that you probably didn't . Shopping do you need us for food which was five minutes away . I chartered a boat with a company called Means of Egress, which I highly recommend . Captain was knowledgeable, attentive and reasonably priced . My only concern was the town of Hudson describe a sk my only concern was the town of Hudson describe as sketchy . We found the people were not very friendly. Also there no true beaches anywhere. We strongly recommend you do research on Hudson specifically shopping and dining. Once again the house was fantastic and very reasonable.

Great Place....Great Time

  • 5 of 5

The house was fully stocked with everything needed for a pleasant stay. The beds and

living room furniture were very comfortable. Greatly enjoyed sitting on the enclosed porch

watching the beautiful sunsets. Would gladly stay here again.

It was beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sea Ranch home. The pictures were exactly the way the house was everything was neat and clean. All the rooms were nice. We loved sitting on the patio and watching the water and ducks go by. My husband set out on the upper patio every morning when he got up and every night before he went to bed. The house had everything that you would ever need. I just wished we had more time to stay and I will definitely come back. We had visited Hudson and stayed at another rental property before but I am so glad we found this one I don't think we will have to look for another one. The gentleman that looks after the property was very helpful and explained everything to us when we got there and we had no problems. There are plenty of restaurants and places to shop it isn't a town with a lot of tourist so to me it was perfect. We found a new beach not been there long the Sun West Beach it was nice and we went to the Weeki Wachee State Park it was really nice good both were really nice to take your family and kids if you have any. We also went on into Tarpon Springs and did some shopping and then we spent a day in Clearwater at the beach so there are plenty of things to do with the family. The only thing there are some steps so if you have trouble with a lot of steps you will have trouble but other than that is the only negative thing that I could say. I understand having the steps you need it up high incase of flooding so I think I could live with them for the luxury of the house.

Luxury waterfront at a reasonable price

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and waterfront location on the end of a cul-de-sac. The house was very large and comfortable with a nice screened in back porch for entertaining. My husband enjoyed fishing off the back dock and chatting with the neighbor/care taker John across the canal while I enjoyed the peace and tranquility of being on the water, however I don’t think I would swim in the canal.

While exploring the Hudson Beach area we found that their are the haves and the have not's, while most properties were taken care there were a few rough areas, no worries though the rental house was in a good area. The Hudson Beach area itself has a lot going for it, 3 very nice restaurants in the neighborhood, a small but clean beach on the gulf, marinas/fishing galore and a new park called Sun West Park that’s opening in 2016, it’s a beautiful spring-fed lake with a white sandy beach, a must see!

Needless to say we are looking forward to returning soon and of course we would also want to thank the owners Anne and Dave for sharing their beautiful home!

Wonderful Winter Get Away

  • 5 of 5

After the cold winter we had in 2013, my husband and I decided to try being SnowBirds. After having very good luck with VRBO, we went in search of our winter 2014 getaway.

We couldn't have been happier with our choice of the Sea Ranch Home. It was everything that it was advertised to be. The docks are beautiful and the decks are perfect for watching the sunset and enjoying breakfast or cocktail hour.

We found many good restaurants to enjoy. We stayed away from all chain restaurants for 2 months. Needless to say we did not have trouble finding good eateries! Try Get Hooked at Port Hudson, Rams Restaurant for Breakfast and Lunch, Grandma Sallys for any meal. And the Ice Cream Parlor at the corner of Hudson Beach Rd and Old Dixie Hwy was awesome.

Tampa and St Petersburg have beautiful art galleries as well as unique shops and restaurants. Lakeridge Winery has events every month and the Seafood and Wine Event was very good. Check out what the other months have to offer if that is your fancy. Of course Tarpon Springs is always a great place to visit, sun and eat.

We can't wait for next year to roll around. BTW this home has an awesome caretaker. We really enjoyed him.
