Guestbook comments from the owner
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.
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.
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.
