Paradise on the River

Vacation Rentals by Owner Vacation Rental in St. Augustine FL St. Augustine Vacation Rentals

A vacation rental - paradise on the river. This beautiful home is located directly on the St. Johns River, only 30 minutes from St. Augustine. This 2 story, restored 1940s farmhouse sits on 6 acres nestled among a hammock of ancient live oaks and bamboo stands on the banks of the St. John's river.           


This magnificent estate is just a few minutes from St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States and a must see on your bucket list. This spacious and uniquely decorated home has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, flat screen TV's in the LR and each bedroom, king sized beds in 3 bedrooms and a queen in the fourth, satellite TV and Wifi, a modern kitchen with a wine bar with fantastic views of the river, and a washer and dryer.              


There is a wrap-around screen porch with seating for 30, a large paver patio for cookouts and outdoor seating for 15, a 40’ x 60’ pavilion for gatherings (can seat up to 75), and a fire pit with a magnificent view of the St. John's River and our white sand beach - this is riverfront Florida at its best.  When you spend a weekend or more here you can relax in the peace of the oaks, enjoy kayaking from the beach at Secret Cove, gather around an evening fire in the riverfront fire pit with rocking chairs, enjoy beautiful sunsets on the 300 foot dock, or fish in the waters of Palatka, the bass capital of the world. It is a must see - it is truly one of a kind.            


It is a unique Florida vacation like non other, offering a private, peaceful getaway while being a short drive to destinations like St. Augustine, Daytona Beach and Orlando. You will be only 30 minutes from the Atlantic beaches in St. Augustine Beach and Crescent Beach and historical old town St. Augustine with all of its charm, history and fantastic restaurants. You will be only 50 minutes from Daytona Beach and only a short drive more to Orlando and Disney World. A special treat awaits only 30 minutes away at Marineland Dolphin Adventure where you can "immerse yourself in the dolphins' aquatic world as you swim with our gentle residents" (see link below or go to marineland.net).            


Two acres of the property are a cleared field where your family can chase fireflys in the summer, with plenty of room to play softball, badminton or simply throw a football or frisbee around. There are eagles nesting 300 feet from the property and you will regularly see osprey, herons, egrets, and the special treat of seeing manatees play and feed on the river grasses near the dock.
