Enjoy this beautifully decorated fully furnished condo that sleeps 6. It's a ground floor unit with a nice view to the water, featuring a 47" LCD tv, dvd, stereo, and all the other amenities you need to have a fantastic vacation. The master bedroom has a King bed, wall mounted TV and features a double sink in the bathroom with a walk-in closet and separate commode area. The 2nd Bedroom has a Queen size bed, wall mounted TV and is very comfy. The futon in the river room opens to a Full size bed and is a complete 7" spring mattress that is very comfortable, (Not like some of the pull out sofas that are very uncomfortable). The kitchen seems larger than it is because the doorway wall area entering into the kitchen has been enlarged to give it a large open feeling. The Kitchen is equipped with cookware, utensils and anything else that you may need. There is plenty to keep you busy if you are into nature, like hiking or biking. Mud Springs and the Welaka State Forest is close by. If you prefer to relax and unwind, lay by the pool and catch up with your favorite novel. There is a boat dock to have your boat on-site while you are vacationing and it can be left in the water for the duration of your stay. Welaka is a small one red-light town with parks and recreation right in the town center. There is a local pharmacy and several watering holes that the locals and visitors alike enjoy. The closest grocery store is in Crescent City which is about a 15 to 20 minute drive. The corner convenience store has most items in stock, even fruit and you can buy fresh veggies right down the street.

My husband and I have been married 24 years this June and have two grown children who are both married and we now have three granddaughters - 7,3,2 yrs and a grandson 10 months. We enjoy spending our free time on the water in Welaka and the surrounding area if we aren't traveling elsewhere.
Trish purchased this condo in 2009
I grew up in Putnam County playing on and around the St. Johns River. It was just a natural choice when we were looking for a second home to escape to on the weekends. We love that it is close enough to the city to be able to get whatever we need but far enough away to feel like we have been transported in time to a slower paced life. It is genuinely a little piece of heaven!
We love that our unit is on the first floor and that we can walk right out the back door without fumbling with stairs or elevators. The unit is easily accessible from the front door or the back and we can sit and have dinner in the river room and watch the sun set, although the pool/tiki bar area is the best place to be to watch the beautiful sunset over the St. Johns river.
Had a great time, the unit was just as Trish said .....perfect .
Could not have asked for a better place to stay.
My friend and I stayed 4 nights on a family gathering/fishing trip. The other family had there on units. It was perfect for us and would be for larger no. of people. Would recommend and rent again.
Lovely, well-decorated, well-equipped Welaka condo. Beautiful view with moss-draped oaks and river in the background. Responsible owner had my security deposit returned before I had put my coolers away! I would definitely stay here again.
Our first time visit to Welaka, FL on the St. Johns River was nothing short of refreshing, relaxing, welcoming, and a great place to take in natures beauty. We left with a feeling of "we can't wait to return". The condo was beautifully decorated and equiped with everything we needed from home, but were thankful we didn't have to add to our packing list. The owner was great at answering any questions I had regarding ammenities and access to nearby Grocery Stores and restaurants. We can't say enough about the people that we met while staying here. From the first day they were so welcoming and made sure we knew where to find things we may need during our stay; and where the best fishing spots were and where to see the manatees and other great scenery FL has to offer. We visited Daytona Beach which was a quick 1 hr., drive from the condo, and went on an Airboat ride which was within a 30 minute drive. Prime Outlets in nearby St. Augustine were a great place to spend a cloudy afternoon. We were able to bring our Bass boat along with us and being able to keep it docked right at the condo docks was wonderful. The people living in the Sportsman condos take alot of pride in their area and keep the pool area and grounds beautifully groomed and clean. We could not have choosen a better place to spend the week, it was the perfect place to kick back and relax, yet there was plenty to do when we felt like like venturing out. Our teenage son loved it as much as we did. We have already made several recommendations to other friends and family members, and we certainly will plan to return to Welaka.
We stayed in this beautiful condo for two months this winter. The condo exceeded our expectations and we loved the small town and the view out of the sliders. You have a beautiful place Trish, Thanks for letting us stay there.
My husband and I decided last minute to travel to Welaka for a few days with our parents. The condo was exactly as promised on this listing. It is clean, furnished comfortably and has everything needed for your stay. The campus at the Sportsman Lodge is beautiful with views of the river, pool, BB-Q area, and a great dock for boaters. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone interested in visiting the Welaka area. Trish, thank you for accomodating us on short notice we look forward to coming back.
This property is in a small Putnam County, FL community that is away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Enjoy relaxing in the quiet and peaceful setting by the St. Johns River.
