Overview

About the property

Mobile Home, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Recently renovated two-bedroom mobile home directly on the St. Johns River. Bring your boat, too, and park it right behind the house at our brand-new dock!

Guys - enjoy a day fishing in the Bass capital of the world. Crappie and Blue Gill are also caught in abundance! Seven Sisters Islands, locally known as a fishing hotspot, are right in your backyard! Seasonal shrimping and blue crabbing, too.

Golf - Palatka Golf Club is nearby and waiting to challenge you with its Donald Ross designed course. Additional golf adventures can be found at the World Golf Village near St. Augustine, with its legendary King & Bear or Slammer & Squire courses, and the notable World Golf Hall of Fame museum.

Ladies - while the guys are fishing or golfing, how about a shopping trip to the St. Augustine Prime Outlet malls? After shopping, enjoy the afternoon in historic St. Augustine, only 36 country miles away. Be sure to tour the Castillo de San Marcos, which dates back to 1695. Stroll around the old shoppes downtown, or travel over the Bridge of Lions to beautiful Anastasia Island beach. On Sundays, be ready for an afternoon of BINGO at the community's clubhouse.

Nearby Palatka offers a full range of shopping and dining. On the way, make sure to stop by Corkie Bells Restaurant for some fantastic classic-Florida-style seafood on the river. Plan on visiting Ravine Gardens State Park during Azalea season, perhaps enjoying a picnic on the grounds. Another must-do is a stop at Angels Drive-In Diner, billed as Florida's oldest and dating back to 1932.

Like Wine? The area boasts two wineries, the Log Cabin Farm, Vineyard & Winery in Satsuma, and San Sebastian Winery in St. Augustine.

Got a motorcycle (or want one)? Destination Daytona including Daytona Harley-Davidson is only 43 country miles away. Enjoy motorsports? Daytona International Speedway, home of the Daytona 500, is only 54 miles away.

Grandkids coming for a visit? Well, if you really MUST leave the tranquility of your riverfront retreat, you'll be happy to know that Disney, Universal Studios, Seaworld, and all the other central Florida attractions are only around 100 miles away.

Now, doesn't this sound better than shoveling snow all winter?

Why Ron & Darra VanAlstyne chose Florida

There is so much more to Florida than Disney World and the beach. The St. Johns River offers a glimpse into what Florida used to be, with great fishing, birdwatching, scenery.

What makes this mobile home unique

Enjoy a day on the river in your boat, and then dock it right behind the house at our brand new dock. Fish, shrimp, or crab right from the dock. After a day on the water, enjoy a barbeque on the gas grill. Then, how about cocktails in the screened-in porch while watching the sun set over Seven Sisters Islands.

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay. The place was very clean and the view was awesome.

  • 5 of 5

We caught tons of catfish and there's nothing like fresh dinner from the river. We will definitely be back.

We will come back!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely gorges view. Nice, peaceful and quiet. The house is clean and well maintained. Water filters are installed even in the bathrooms. There are 3 (TREE!!) recliners in the house, so you can seat in front of the river and relax. We enjoyed fishing from the lighted pier. St. Agustin is about half an hour away. Palatka is even closer. It has all the stores you need: Walmart, CVS, Publix and more. The only thing I have to mention is absence of internet and no service for T-Mobil customers. Be prepared to stay there without any communication. Overall it was a good experience and we will definitely come back again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The neighbors, Charlie and Linda, truly enjoyed meeting you as well, and said they look forward to your return visit! I do apologize about the internet - the modem died right before your stay and I was not able to get it replaced before you arrived.

Bass fishing at it's finest! Park your boat on the dock right behind the house. Also, crabbing, shrimping (seasonal). Bird watching right from the deck overlooking the river.
