Clark and Gemma are such amazing hosts ! Nothing was left to chance, and their efforts to give attention to even the smallest details made this a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing week. From the welcome basket to explaining where everything was, they took away the frustration we had experienced in previous rentals.
The house itself was absolutely the cleanest we have been to. Even though it rained each day, the screened porches made us welcomed so we could watch the beautiful St. John's River, read a book, discuss the day's news, or finish up an oil painting or two.
The new dock made us wish we had a boat to bring. And, although there was a grill in the huge pavilion, we enjoyed just some simple meals in the kitchen that had everything we needed.
The location was unique. It is not located in a community with many rentals. It is in a high-end community where people seem to treasure their privacy and enjoy their seclusion. The security gate was easy to use.
But, restaurants and stores are not far away. The city of Palatka has a number of good restaurants. We enjoyed our meals at the Italian Latin Grill or Hwy 17, especially. But, within a 10 minute drive there are stores for food items or non-essentials you may have forgotten to bring.
We are looking forward to coming back again, and certainly appreciate the kindness and helpfulness that Clark and Gemma extended to us.
