Welaka House Rental Photos and Description
Kick back and relax and enjoy the beauty of the river
This beautiful, newly decorated home is nestled under Spanish moss draped cypress trees with big, gorgeous views of the St. Johns and the Ocala National Forest. It is the perfect getaway to Old Florida with none of the crowds, overdevelopment and traffic. Whether you are a casual or serious fisherman, a hiker, a hunter, a reader or a boater this home and location will appeal to you. This very comfortable home, yard and dock gives a feeling of freedom and serenity that is hard to match and a peacefulness that helps you go back to a simpler, less complicated world. There are great views of the river whether you are in the nicely appointed kitchen, at the dining room table, sitting in one of our new leather reclining sofas or chair, sitting in the large screen room, out in the well-maintained St. Augustine yard or sipping your favorite beverage with a line or two in the water. Located 90 minutes from the Orlando area, 60 minutes from Jacksonville, St. Augustine or Daytona, this area, known as the “Bass Fishing Capital of the World, has a lot going on including not only bass but many salt water species as well, hiking in the nearby Welaka State Forest, bird and alligator watch on the nearby famous Oklawaha River, boating to Silver Glenn Springs or Salt Springs, ferry over to Ocala National Forest, numerous restaurants and bars nearby such as River Pub, Shrimps R Us, Palms Café Blue, marinas, bait, boat rentals and even the 18 hole Live Oak Golf Course.

This is our weekend retreat and a place we consider a hidden secret. We never want to leave but not retired yet so have to go back to our 'real lives'. We found this place while camping at Salt Springs and rented a boat for the day. It had just gone on the market and it was next door to a piece of property my husband had bought and sold over 20 years ago. He always wanted to be on the river but took him 20 years to make that dream come true.
Karen purchased this house in 2012
