  • A perfect guys weekend in paradise


    From the moment we pulled onto the property we were all blown away! There is nothing like waking up in the morning having breakfast and coffee on the dock planning out an awesome day. For our stay there we brought our boat and it was an easy launch/short ride from the local boat ramp to the dock, we enjoyed multiple restaurants close by that had boat parking that were a great time as well. Once the day was done on the water we’d get charcoal going on the grill and have a nice cookout right next to the awesome views of the water. Everything made us feel right at home from easy communication with the host down to the feeling of a clean welcoming home! Don’t hesitate to book this home for a family/friend getaway I promise you won’t regret it! Some local wildlife might surprise you too!

  • Peaceful location


    It is very peaceful and quiet . There were a lot of deer wandering around the yard and we even saw an owl . Fishing is great off the dock . The restaurants nearby are good . The house is large and has a very open concept so you can cook and visit with family easily. The extremely large outdoor living area has a tv and plenty of seating . We will definitely stay here again !

    Us girls try to do two trips a year and there’s 8 of us. To find a property that please 8 women is simply amazing. Words can’t even give you an idea of how fantastic the property and house are. Not only is the inside amazing but has an amazing dock and outdoors area. The inside and outside of the house were very clean we didn’t even have to wipe anything down before placing our groceries on the counters. The town of Welaka is so great everyone is so friendly and welcome us with opened arms. We’ve already decided we’re going back next year. Thanks, Kim, for being awesome!
