Our home is indeed is a unique and special place, ......a quiet peaceful, secure place to get-away to recharge, relax, enjoy glorious sunsets, and sometimes, ....hearing the quaint sound of a distant rumbling train. It soothes the Soul, ......We call it 'Tranquility' at Casa del Rio.
According to 100% of our renters, this is the nicest place they have ever rented. You will not be disappointed! A beautiful, newly remodeled 3,186 sq. ft. river front home directly on the St. Johns River. A private, electronically control gate opens to the property.
Our home is a perfect getaway place for a small family, couples, friends, boaters, fishermen and those who just want to relax, recharge and get away for a while. This property cannot accommodate parties, celebrations, weddings or loud noise/music.
This home offers a modern open concept with two bedrooms; master king-suite and guest queen bedroom. Water front views are from the kitchen, dining area and living room. A complete laundry room with washer, dryer with an inbuilt ironing board. Overhead fans abound, even on the two large screened porches which have waterfront views. Tables and chairs are on both porches for enjoying refreshments, eating outside, watching boats on the river or enjoying wonderful sunsets.
Just steps from the house are large covered pavilion and boathouse. The pavilion has lights, two large overhead fans, propane BBQ grill and a relaxing hammock to watch the day slowly slip by. The boathouse has lights, two electric boat lifts, running water, sink and fish cleaning area.
Abundant wildlife can be seen throughout on the property. Wild turkeys and their baby chicks walk in the yard in the spring and early summer. Red tail hawks can be seen hunting for worms for their youngsters in the spring and early summer. Owls also hunt the river yard and manatees can be seen in the spring and fall grazing around the boathouses. Fish are always breaking the water surface and of course some alligators can be seen, especially in the later afternoon and night. Great fishing is found off the large spacious boathouse or enjoy fishing from your boat. This area is known to be the “Bass Fishing Capital of the World”.
The home is centrally located to St Augustine & St. Augustine Beaches (30-mins.), Flagler Beach (45-mins.), Deland (45-mins.), Daytona Beach (1-hr), Gainesville (1-hr) and Jacksonville (1-hr). Major-brand 100-200 outlet stores (30-mins.), numerous golf courses, convenient grocery stores and restaurants are located nearby.
Having owned our home on the river since 1997, we have grown to love the St. Johns River and numerous activities related to the river. For those who love the water (fishing, boating, or just to relax and enjoy a special area) - this is the place!
When the home next door came up for sale, we could not resist the opportunity to purchase so family, friends and visitors can experience what we and our neighbors refer to is a special place/paradise on the river.
Relaxful, private, secure waterfront home on the St. Johns River. Newly updated home in new condition. All appliances, fixtures, etc. are new. En-suite bathroom in master suite, hardwood and stone floors throughout. Well stocked kitchen; dishes to pots and pans, serving and refrigerator dishes, and even some condiments/cooking essentials – you only need to bring your food and your particular cooking condiments. Great fishing from the covered boathouse or from your boat, catch shrimp from the shrimp dock with your bow net.
