    Sheila has an amazing home on the river. The accommodations were above and beyond. Our nephew brought his boat and was able to use the lift to bring the boat out of the water. The weather was cool and the fire pit on the deck was perfect. The boys were able to fish and I visited my sister in a nursing facility. This was a perfect place to call home away from home. I highly recommend this home for your get away.

    Thank you Sheila.

    My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. The property was exactly as listed - beautiful! Loved the water views and privacy. Plus the owner was very responsive when we reached out with questions. Highly recommend this property and would stay again if back in the area.

  • An absolute dream!


    If you're looking for a beautiful place to relax and unwind... this is a place for you!

    We loved everything about this property... the house was exactly what we dreamed a Florida vacation home should be... beautifully designed, with an open-concept living/dining/kitchen, spacious bedrooms (2 masters) with comfortable king-size beds, and private ensuites... beautifully decorated, and very welcoming. It really felt like a home away from home.

    The location was perfect... private, quiet, and peaceful, away from the crowds, made for relaxation.

    We loved the area, the gorgeous mature trees covered with Spanish moss, and the enchanting water views of St. Johns River. Our puppy was mesmerized by the views of the water, the boats passing by, and the birds flying just over the water, and he loved the fully fenced yard, where he could run freely.

    Oh, yes... this property is pet-friendly, so you can bring your fur baby with you :)

    Located only a short 1/2 hr drive from St. Augustine and Palm Coast, allowed us easy access to many historic attractions and the white sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

    The host was awesome... caring and prompt to answer all our questions. Thank you.

    We will definitely book this property again!

  • Palatka right on the river


    Gorgeous home and property right on the river! Beautiful open floor plan home with windows that line the back and what a view! Great dock!! Very nice fire pit inside the covered & screened-in patio/porch. Great communication with the owner, Sheila. She was a pleasure to deal with.

    Outstanding time! Highly recommend!

  • Awesome river house


    Stayed for a long weekend with our small boat. Kids and dog had a blast running around in the gated yard. Shrimped and fished in the river everyday. Small boat lift was great so we didn’t have to worry about the boat overnight. Very clean, and very well stocked kitchen. Had such a relaxing time may book it again before the shrimp run is over!
