This place is amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed and the views were just beautiful. The house itself is very spacious and secluded. Even though there were houses near us, the setting is very private and quiet. We took a charter out of St Marks with Capt James and caught the limit of keeper spotted trout and way to many shorts to count. Will bring our own boat next trip for sure. The Host are very accommodating and easy to communicate with.

Everything you could possibly want in a “home away from home”.

  • 5 of 5

The home itself is very nice, but the surrounding land is absolutely beautiful! We will definitely be back and make a three day weekend out of it.

Piece of Heaven

My family and I spent New Year's Eve relaxing at this beautiful home. It was exactly what we wanted - quiet, roomy, cozy,. The view was beautiful, and the owner was helpful. We would definitely rent this home again.

Refrig and trash pull out weren't clean. Other than that we enjoyed our stay! Loved the dock access for putting our kayak in the water, fishing and crabbing. Screened in porch was nice to watch the rain.
