Paradise found!

After a very long and cold Canadian winter, we were lucky to be able to spend the month of April, 2014 at this truly beautiful home. Everything you could possibly need is provided...lots of comfortable furniture, beds, modern electronics and appliances and WiFi to keep in touch back home. The kitchen cupboards and drawers contain everything you could ever need and more. The lanai and pool area are truly exceptional...sun on the sparkling pool all day and a shaded lanai whenever you want it. The canal is alive with people, boats and successful fishing! A friendly neighbourhood with lovely landscaping everywhere, flowering shrubs and swaying palms. Lots of places to shop and eat out should you chose to do so. Our favourite meals came from the BBQ provided after an afternoon around the pool soaking up that Floridian sunshine...complete relaxation! We hope to be able to spend more time here. It truly is a "waterfront paradise"!

Had a wonderful time

We had a really nice stay .Every thing we needed was right there. Enjoyed the pool very much. It is a wonderful area for relaxing and enjoying the Florida sun and warmth. Really enjoyed the sea birds that we saw every day. The neighbor was so nice and shared info on the area with us. It was very helpful. We would recommend this house to others. We don't usually go to the same place twice but may reconsider for this house.

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

The Bouchard Family, We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and hope to have you again! It is Feb. in Cincinnati and I would love to be sitting on that dock right now! Take care and hope to have you again, Steve and Laurie

We need to stay longer next time!

What a fantastic home away from home. This house is everything advertised, and much more! Very clean and well maintained, all the amenities of home, and conveniently located as well. We loved Sam's Beach Bar at Hudson Beach, and spent almost every day down at Honeymoon Island State Park. We highly recommend the park which is just a short drive down 19 from Hudson. The canal living was wonderful, and our kids really enjoyed the pool (which was warm enough to swim in even on New Year's Day)! The patio offers privacy from the neighbors, who were really nice, but respectful of your privacy. We will definitely be back, but we have to stay longer next time! Thank you again, Steve and Laurie.

Owner's reply:

The Fritz's, so glad you had such a great time. Please come again!

We visited this property December 19-26, 2013. The directions to the property, entry into the property, and presentation of the home were as promised. We enjoyed the pool and the sunroom. The owners offered a suggestion for fishing with Captain Mike on the Reef Chief in Port Richie, it was great fishing experience in the gulf. Owners also recommened Tarpon Springs, Spongerama and great Greek Resturants. What an enjoyable day. Demetri's is a great resturant with open air dining in the back of the resturant with a wonderful fully Greek owner and staff. Steve recommended Catches in Port Richie to our daughter who arranged a gift certificate for Christmas dinner. We really enjoyed the food, the decor and the service. We took a ride north and found Cirtus State Park, we took the boat ride and toured the park. Our first encounter with Manatee's occured at the park's manatee overlook. The next day we went to Homosassa to the Riverside Resort and rented Kayaks and paddled up to the overlook where a manatee swam under my kayak. It was fantastic. We ate at the restuant following our adventure. The food was great. The washer and dryer were very helpful. We could pack less and travel simply with carry on luggage. Walmart is close, we enjoyed Publix grocers and Red Box video's. The staff at Perkins in Hudson was a wonderful, and it was a great place to have breakfast. We appriciated that Lori and Steve called while we were visiting. The patio by the pool was a great place to read. The nighbor to the right side looking towards the waterway was very nice and very helpful. We have rented several vacation homes over the years. By far this home was hands down a #1. After some of the questionable places we have stayed that did not meet expectations or their discription on line we were elated with this selection, this was my best pick ever. WE HOPE TO RETURN SOON.

To the Campbell's, we loved hearing you had such a good time! We hope you made many lasting memories! We also hope to have you again, Steve and Laurie

Great Family Vacation

The pictures do not do this house justice. I was concerned it would be small, but it was not. The rooms were very large and the outdoor space was amazing! We saw a sting ray in the canal within our first hour there. The house was well stocked with all the supplies and extras we needed.

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

Sally and family, Steve and I were happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you all again! I've never seen a sting ray in the canal, how amazing was that! Thanks for everything, Steve and Laurie

Fantastic February

It was a fabulous house in a great neighborhood. The decor was beautiful and the house had everything we needed. Our family of ten came for a week and we had a wonderful time. We also had two couples come for a short visit and they liked our home best of the other two they saw. The master suite was awesome and the furnishings were great. We love the area we were in having just visited it several times. We were so pleased with the whole experience that we rented the same home for February 2014. We also searched for a four bedroom but none were available so we will be very happy with the home we had in 2013.

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

Thanks! We look forward to having you and your family again in 2014!!!

Relaxing,comfortable home

We really enjoyed the quiet, relaxing home. We took walks in the neighborhood which was very quiet and felt completely safe. The house is comfortable and felt like a home away from home. We enjoyed the warm, heated pool and sitting on the dock. The pics on the web are very accurate. The bathroom has a nice vanity to set things on and to store things underneath. The landscaping is nice and well maintained. Lots of shopping, restaurants, and nice golf courses nearby. We really enjoyed going down to Tarpin Springs on the sponge docks to enjoy shopping and the Greek food and bakery. Thanks Steve and Laurie for making our stay enjoyable.

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

Kieth and Amy, We were happy to hear about your stay! It sounds like you love it as much as we do. We wish we were there now, sitting here looking out the window at 3 inches of snow in Cincinnati. Thanks for the feedback, we plan on doing some more upgrades. We hope to have you again! Steve and Laurie

Home away form home!

We stayed here in July and had a great time. First off the house was very clean and had all the amentias of home. We really enjoyed the swimming pool and salt water canal just behind the house. Not a far drive to Clearwater , Tarpon Springs or even Tampa Bay for that matter. Great central location. Hope to return next summer if possible!

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

Thanks Brandon and Nikki! We hope to have you and your family as our guests again soon!

Falling Waters WV 25419


This house was perfect for myself, husband, inlaws and our dogs. So nice and clean and decorated so nicely. The owners are wonderful and made it so nice for us. The sister was near by if we needed anything. Everything is easy to get to and a short drive. One of my highlights of the vacation is our own dolphin show right in front of me as i was laying out on the boat deck. So exciting! So worth staying here just for that! They left a lot of pamphlets for ideas to eat and places to see. That was very helpful. Several different areas in the house to relax. The screened in pool was great, we enjoyed eating and playing games out by the pool. Just a minute drive if you want to go to the man made beach in Hudson. Very nice, Outdoor bars and places to eat there. We definitely want to stay here again! Great place! Thanks so much!

Steve and Laurie Pitman

Owner's reply:

Hi Meri and Aaron, Thanks so much for the great review! That is what sold me on the place too, the dolphins playing practically in your backyard! I'm happy that you got to experience that! We have been so busy and hope to sneak away sometime in June for some sun and fun! We hope to have you and family again! Thanks!!!

waterfront paradise

We recently spent the months of February and March, 2012, at this lovely salt water canal front home. The property is in great condition with lots of new improvements inside and out which shows the pride of ownership, which is also demonstrated in the other neighbouring properties throughout this community. The owners are very friendly and helpful and did everything you would expect. A nearby relative is always available if there is something you have a question about. This area of Florida has a lot to offer anyone who is looking for a relaxing time or is interested in all the shopping and entertainment close at hand. There are many local clubs such the Eagles, Moose, Elks, and the various legions which always have something on and make you feel most welcome. USA flea market is 3 blocks down US 19. It is just the right size to spend a couple of hours in. Although I did not do any golfing on this trip, I noted there were many courses in the area and at this time of year the prices are great! We found it very easy to commute to any place we wished to go and most of the communities in this area all have something to offer. We would not hesitation recommending this property and hope to return again.

Owner's reply:

Marlene and Jack, We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and made some wonderful memories! We would love to have you guys back again, I hope you will consider it, thanks again! Steve and Laurie

Owner Supplied Testimonials

my husband and I stayed here in March 2011. We seen dolphins playing in the canal on several occasions! The sunsets were absolutely gorgeous! Everything was so convenient yet the home is tucked away in a quiet setting. There's a Walmart with a licquor store right across the street! The fishing in the canal is great, (in your own back yard!) lots of different species. A screened in swimming pool has since been added and we can't wait to go back to enjoy that! We love the home and the area and can't wait till next time!
