About BOB & PAULA MCCARTY
We live in Pompano Beach Fl. We live in a 90 yr old historic house and hope to retire to the River Retreat soon. We both love the water sunsets & just chilling by the river or on our pontoon boat. We also motorcycle ride when we can.
BOB & PAULA MCCARTY purchased this House in 2002
Why BOB & PAULA MCCARTY chose Putnam County
We bought this lot because it was on the end of subdivision canal on one side and 130 ft river front. Also the Seven Sister Islands are across from us giving that complete peace & nature no buildings ever here!
What makes this House unique
Water, Sunsets, Wildlife!! Tranquility Stars you can touch at night & full moons. Rain Storms are pretty terrific on our metal roof.

So disappointing! Won’t go into great detail, but suffice it to say, we would have gone back home as soon as we walked onto the property had we not leant our home out to our neighbors for their company. In a few words the home smelled, was run down, dirty and in need of repairs. We sent a message to the owners with a detailed list of problems we had (in case they were not aware of the condition the property was in. We received a thank you for the information, and they assured us they will go to the property to check on it.
One thing which was a huge annoyance for us (but may not bother you) is that there is a bar right next door across the canal, perhaps 130 feet away. It is open from 11 a.m. until after midnight and plays very loud music on and off day and night. You can feel the bass vibrating through the closed up house. We wish we had known about this before we booked, as we were not looking for anything more than a clean, relaxing place to stay and enjoy the scenery and natural beauty of the river and Mother Nature.
On a more positive note, we dId spend a lot of time exploring the area. We visited St. Augustine for a day (less than 40 minute drive), and went on some short hikes at a couple of the state parks in the beautiful area. We had some good seafood at Corky Bells and Musselwhites in Palatka.
Hopefully the owners will have taken care of all the issues before the next renters.
We are very disappointed that these guests were so unsatisfied with their stay.
We have been renting this property for a few years now and NO one has had a problem with their stay. We have repeat guests every year. Please no that we stay at this home about every 2 months & it is well kept! Thank You for your inquiry's.
Happy Vacationing to all!
Paula & Bob
More than meets the eye
The home was much nicer than the pictures represents. Very easy people to deal with and very pleasant stay. Would highly recommend for outdoorsy people.
I am glad you had a great time with your guests. Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like to get away again.
Have a great Labor Day weekend.
Beautiful dock & views of the St John's river.
Kept our 13' boat tied up in front of the property. River access was our priority - throughly enjoyed cruising & seeing many alligators, manatee & bald eagles (along with multiple other birds). The home is old, with no good view of the river, but was comfortable for watching tv & sleeping. Would love to see a screened in front porch added & some of the trees cut down. Lovely area!!
I am glad you had a nice time. Hope to have you again on your next trip to Satsuma.
Thanks for your review.
PARADISE OUT YOUR BACK DOOR!! MANATEE,TURTLES, BLUE HERONS & A HAWK.
GREAT ACCOMMODATIONS LOCATION ON ST. JOHNS RIVER PERFECTLY LOCATED FISHING & SIGHT SEEING EVEN FOOD & DRINK ON THE RIVER FRONT. WE WENT TO CORKEY BELLS AT GATORS LANDING BY BOAT TO EAT LUNCH.
SUNSETS ARE SPECTACULAR ON THE DOCK IN YOUR BACKYARD. THE PICTURE TELLS IT ALL. IF YOU JUST SIT ON THE DOCK ALL DAY ITS SO RELAXING.
Thank you for your great review. I am glad your stay was great. Hope to see you again soon.
Birthday Fishing trip for 13yr old Son
Beautiful location right on the water! Oversized Dock perfect for relaxing on the water. Dock has space for 2 boats with water hookup to help keep everything clean. We rented a small fishing boat for the weekend 4.5 miles away from Georgia Boys fish camp and kept it at the house the entire trip.
The house is perfect with everything you could possibly need. Very clean and cold air - which we needed this past weekend!
Looking forward to booking this location again.
Nancy was very accommodating with the short notice we where working with. Thank you very much for your help in making memories at a beautiful location.
Thank you for the great review. I am glad you all had a great time this past weekend. Please keep us in mind for your next weekend vacation or even a stay for a family reunion.
Visited for family reunion. Home was as advertised. It has everything we needed, and more. Beautiful location. Plan on using again next year!! The only thing off, was the grass was long. Note, Don, take those gum trees down!! View would improve 100 percent!!
Thank you for your review. I am glad you had a great time. Hope for your return soon. Thanks for the tip about the long grass & trees. Have a great summer.
