What makes this house unique

In addition to unrestricted direct power boat access to the open Gulf of Mexico for cruising or fishing, Leisure Beach is bordered on the west and the south by Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park which can be accessed by the neighborhood canals by kayak.

According to the park website, "visitors can enjoy fishing and paddling the inlets and bayous that wander through the salt marsh. The Salt Spring looks small, but it is an amazing 320 feet deep. Gray fox, gopher tortoises, and dolphins call this park and its waters home. Birdwatchers can enjoy sighting raptors, wading birds, shore birds, and migratory songbirds. ... Werner-Boyce now has a total of three areas open to the public: Scenic Drive Trail Head at 10333 Scenic Drive, Port Richey which contains a picnic pavilion, tables, informational kiosk, and a short hiking trail (corner of Cinema and Scenic). We currently have about 1.5 miles of hiking trails open for your enjoyment, dogs are welcome but must stay on a 6 foot leash at all times. The Pond Loop Trail is in the Eagle Nesting Protection Zone and is now closed as the Eagles have returned to the nest. The newest fledgling hatched in early January, help us figure out if there’s one hatching or two. You are welcome to come out and bring your favorite pair of binoculars or birding scope to watch the Eaglet(s) grow."

Comfortable stay in Hudson

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Hudson. The home was comfortable and had all the amenities necessary for a great vacation. It was close enough to a commercial area to make it convenient but was still quiet. We will definitely go back, hopefully for a longer period of time.

Another Great Stay in Hudson

  • 5 of 5

First trip was great, the second was even better!!! The owners of the home couldn't be better, making improvements to the house since our last stay. Had some memorable days of fishing, manatee encounters, and countless sunsets. The location is great for all types of activities whether it's in the great outdoors, tourists attractions, or just sitting in the back yard relaxing. We had such a great time that we hated to leave and can't wait till our next visit.

Relaxing stay in Hudson

  • 5 of 5

If I had to describe this place in one word, it would be “awesome”! The house was as good if not better than the pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the canal, kayaking and fishing in the mangroves, and sitting out back taking in some breath taking sunsets. You can’t beat the location with countless stores and restaurants minutes from the house and Tampa only a short distance to the south. The owners were great and very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked our next visit.
