Our home is indeed is a unique and special place; a quiet peaceful get-away to recharge and relax - we call our home '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! Our home is a perfect place for a small family, couples, friends, boaters, fishermen, browsing the area by boat or car and those who just want to relax. 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.

This home offers a modern open concept with two bedrooms; cathedral ceilings, master king-suite and guest queen bedroom. Water front views are from the kitchen, dining area and living room. Overhead fans abound, even on the two large screened porches which both face the waterfront. 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 is a large covered pavilion that has lights, two large overhead fans, propane BBQ grill, propane crab/shrimp boiler/fryer and a relaxing hammock to watch the day slowly slip by. Continuing on the short walkway is the boathouse that has overhead lights, two electric boat lifts and fish cleaning station with sink and running water. Also a bow-net shrimp platform joins the boathouse for catching fresh shrimp.

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. There are numerous birds, both land/water fowl to see and even 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 through the fall grazing around the boathouse.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Clark,



I wanted to thank you and Gemma for being such great hosts this week. You treated Pam and I like your personal guests and we very much appreciated it. You have a wonderful place and I am sure you will continue to have great success in renting it out.



Hope to see you again sometime in the future.



Thanks,
Mar 2013

After having lived in crowded cities with hectic traffic, we looked for a nice, quiet, relaxing place on the water. We enjoy boating on the river and Intracoastal. This area and home provides us everything we sought.

Clark Hoyle purchased this house in 2011

This place has turned out to be more than what we expected. We are centrally located to shopping, beaches, parks and dining. The quiet road leading to our home provides a wonderful place for walking and biking. The river front provides scenes like a masterpiece of artwork, new scenes each day with the various passing boats, sunsets and glorious mornings. For those who love the water (fishing, boating, or just to relaxing and enjoying a special area) - this is the place! This place is truly is ‘Tranquility’ at its best – it soothes the soul!

Centrally located to everything you need or want to do; from large cities (Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Daytona Beach, Orlando), to beaches, tennis courts, golf courses, parks, shopping, dining and major airports. Also the best fishing in the area, fishing guides, boat rentals and our handheld wireless remotes for the boatlifts (in the boathouse) makes launching and retrieving your boat easy. We provide towels, sheets, paper products (paper towels, bath room tissue and napkins), laundry, dish and hand soap. 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. Finally, not least – every guest said this home is exactly as described.

Taste of paradise.

My family really enjoyed the stay. It was really just a perfect liyyle getaway. The house and property were perfectly maintained yet very comfortable and homey feeling. Clark and Gemma were sweet yet gave us distance to let us relax and feel secluded.

Peaceful, Relaxing Escape to Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
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.

Paradise found on St. Johns's River!

Paradise found on St. Johns's River!
  • 5 of 5
My husband & I have rented numerous houses from Homeaway & I do believe that this one wins the prize!!! We were met by Clark & Gemma who are a very warm & friendly couple. They both took us into this beautiful appointed home with music flowing thru out, Gemma had made fresh muffins, brie, crackers & wine for us to enjoy. The home is furnished with everything that is needed,and more, all top quality, all we needed to bring was our clothes & food for the week. My husband fell in love with the covered boat dock & motorized lift. He may never be the same! I do blieve that this is paradise! Right down to the sunsets off the dock or either screen covered porches! We do plan to return in the near future!

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home!

Very beautiful place to relax and enjoy a vacation

  • 5 of 5
The property description was accurate of what the listing described and the location was the perfect place that we were looking for. It was easy to find and the house was very nice. It had everything we needed and more.. It was clean and very neat. We are looking to stay again in the future. The owners were so helpful and friendly. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and just relaxing under the pavilion. My wife enjoyed the hammock while I fished . Awesome sunsets .

Incredible find on the river

  • 5 of 5
What a location! As fussy rental property owners ourselves, my wife and I had searched long and hard to find a nice property that was "off the radar" and we were expecting it not to live up to the photos. However, as soon as we arrived down an exotic, almost tropical private road, we knew we'd struck lucky.

The spot is fantastic for a quiet break and though there's not much going on locally, that adds to the sensation of getting away from it all. The owners, Clark and Gemma met us and were so kind and generous and gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and more. The rest of the time we just had the property and the river to ourselves.

In spite of poorer weather we loved it. As a break for a couple the home has plenty of space and great balcony views and is generously stocked.

This area wasn't somewhere we'd considered previously but now we've found Woodbury Trail, next time we want an escape In a stunning location, we'd love to go back.

Thanks again!

What a Great Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We have rented numerous houses and condominiums. This house has to be one of the best ever! From being welcomed by Clark and Gemma, to the condition of the house, this by far exceeded our expectations. The house is very clean and well appointed, just like being at home. We traveled to the St. John's river to fish. What a great location and amenities. The covered boat dock was great. There is a boat lift, so we put the boat in the water the first day and took it out the day we left. We did catch some fish, the fish cleaning station was perfect with plenty of room to clean the catch. We will definitely return for a longer stay.
