Why Maria Bailey chose Satsuma

I've never had guests that didn't tell me it's the most beautiful spot on the river.

BEST Stay Ever! Owner was beyond amazing and so very helpful

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a unique relaxing river home, this is definitely it! The owner went above and beyond making sure our girls birthday weekend just perfect! So kind and responds to any questions very quickly. The home is very inviting. There were 5 of us and we had a blast. Sitting on the screened lanai early morning or late night just staring at that beautiful river made it difficult to leave. We caught and released (this time) many reds and catfish. We even got to see the manatee one evening.

We can’t say enough about this peaceful weekend and our more than gracious owner of this home. Will definitely be back! Thank you so much!

Great Time :)

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit. It is a place to go when you want to relax and take it easy. The views are beautiful, nice home and plenty of outside areas to sit and hang out. This was our 2nd visit and we will definitely book another stay when we get more free time.

Just What I Wanted!

  • 5 of 5

It was the perfect weekend with my husband and best friends for my 62nd birthday. All I wanted to do was to relax and fish and do nothing else. The home and property were wonderful. The house was extremely clean and had everything that was needed. The property was picture perfect on the river. Thank you Maria for sharing your home. We will be back.

Amazing river front property!

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend getaway. My wife, I and another couple enjoyed 3 nights on the river. We brought our boat to head down to Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs during they day. The boat ramp was just a short drive from the home which was very convenient. Was able to tie up right to the dock. Overall great little getaway and hope to come back this summer to stay at this home again!
