    This was the best well-stocked short-term rental we have ever stayed in! Many times, even with notes about what is provided/not provided, you have to over-pack just to have the essentials - especially regarding the kitchen - but not at this property! The location and photos were just as you see online.

    If you are looking for a relaxing getaway, book NOW! This home has everything you could want and more! Convenient to the springs, boat rental, groceries, restaurants, etc. House was stocked with all you could need and MORE. Our family time spent on the dock was memories that will last a lifetime. The giant bait net was amazing and we "accidentally" caught a TON of crab in the trap. Our boys (8 & 12) had a BLAST! We visited the springs during the day and fished all night. House was immaculate, owners were friendly & responsive, and the private dock was incredible. We can't recommend this property enough!

  • Relaxing, Beautiful views and cozy!


    The house was great! The owners did a great job. It’s an updated prefab with a big addition well planned facing the river. The only issues were confirmation to check in went to our spam. We tried message evolve, they never answer to this day. We tried several times on our check in day and no answer. Evolve should have noticed there was no communication from property manager to us. Which a key code we can’t access. Luckily last minute we reached out to VRBO 1800 and they gave us property manager cell #. She replied immediately. Someone should of followed up since check in day had arrived. Other than a poor communication issue. The only thing that was not up to par were the beds especially the master. The mattress is springy soft and saggy. I would invest in mattresses and go with med at the least. Aside from that, the house is great. We enjoyed breakfast lunch and dinners peacefully watching the river and beautiful sunsets. The owners did a great job with the house. Its simple and cozy. We rented a pontoon and went to the springs one day. Great getaway with 4 teenagers. We went to Kennedy space center and St Agutine. We are grateful with the owners providing there place for us to enjoy. Evolve should do a better job of communicating though.

  • Beautiful property


    The property was beautiful and close to the venue where we were attending a wedding. Due to the hurricane there was no water pressure - however evolve was able to find us another property to shower at. Nothing beats waking up and looking at that water view in the morning!
