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.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this cute home. Loved that we were right on the water with our boat and the neighborhood is quiet. We went and ate dinner one night at Corky Bells just several miles up the road in Palatka. It was delicious! The cell service in the house is not great but when you step outside you can get 4G. If you want to watch something on TV I recommend you bring some dvd's unless you like watching infomercials, talk shows, or people's court! Lol We came for the fishing and did pretty good considering the heat. We caught 75 bream. The only thing that is see would be a problem is with mulitple people staying here there is no privacy for the room with the queen bed. It didn't bother me as it was just my husband and I. This would be perfect for a family with 2 or 3 kids. We enjoyed it and we will be back!

Great times!

We stayed at the St. John's waterfront property mid October for 4 nights. Wish we could have stayed longer! The house was clean bright and well furnished with everything we needed. Darra and Ron were very helpful and had left some good tips about local facilities in a welcome pack for guests. The house is located in a good area for fishing both from the dock in front of the house (facilities to moor own boat) and other locations in the area. We enjoyed our stay and would defiantly stay there again.

Loved it!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this place!!! We arrived late in the day so the first evening was just a time to relax and check out the outside features (dock, deck, and screened porch). These features are what sets this home apart. I caught plenty of panfish from the dock albeit smaller fish. The community boat ramp and the one at the little bar at the end of the road were too small for my boat (22' long x 8' wide with a 30' trailer) so a quick drive back to the Dunn's creek adn hwy 17 ramp was easy enough and then a short boat ride back to the dock made for easy access the rest of the trip. There is a bait shop, convienence store and an awesome Produce stand in Satsuma along with little takeout restaurants. I also had need of a hardware store which is in Pomona Park only 6 miles away and all of the chains are in Palatka if you want to buy some steaks to grill on the Gas grill on the deck....Overall it is a wonderful place to stay. The only cons are cell phone coverage, no light for the grill, no Wifi and TV is on an antenna but these are creature comforts that for the price were not an issue....WE WILL BE BACK!!!!
