About Rhett Lewis

I live in Gainesville with my two children and we love our weekends at our river house. We are happy to be able to let other families enjoy this wonderful home.

Rhett Lewis purchased this house in 2006

Why Rhett Lewis chose Jacksonville

We absolutely love the beautiful untouched beaches. We love being able to jump in our boat and head to the Ocean as well as the intercoastal or up the river. The boys constantly fish off the dock, play in the sand, or hang out by the pool. There is enough space for all our family (several generations) to get together and we always have requests from friends to have pool parties and BBQ's!

What makes this house unique

Watching huge ships cruise by, big pool, great views from the decks, plents for everyone to do with the pool table, multiple family rooms, fabulous kitchen, great fishing, close to shopping and beaches...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much! We really appreciate it! And we did so love the house and hope we will be able to stay in it again!! We could totally get used to that!! The neighbors were great, they are on my facebook now!! My guy fixed their boat; they got towed in while we were sitting there, so my guy to the rescue!! He does it a lot!! Thanks again, we will highly recommend your house! I have a ton of friends on Facebook that have made lots of comments & some questions, and have all been sent to the link! Hope you get some new people from me!! Thanks Bunches!!!

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Every summer we take our children and grandchildren on a vacation and this year was the absolute best! The house and accommodations were excellent and there was so much to do in the surrounding area! The only thing that would have made it better is if we had a boat/jet ski. From the 3 year old to the 19 year old we heard "this is the best trip ever!" Mr Lewis thank you so very much for sharing your home with us!

Great beautiful place for our wedding

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here during wedding weekend. We had ceremony few doors down but reception here. The house for the family in every room in house was spacious. Only negatives were that the main floor had flooded a little due to the heavy rain coming in through the window panes. Had to move furniture to ensure electronics in home were not destroyed and go upstairs to try and see where additional water may be coming in. All in all. Great place to stay but Mother Nature created some issues that were not known before hand. I would recommend this house to anyone but try to stay when there isn't hurricane season or heavy rains.

Great vacation house for a large group.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 had a great time at this river house. The house is very well stocked with everything we needed from coffee pots to crock pots. The pool was great after a day out on the boat. We loved watching the huge boats going by. The home owner and property manager were very helpful and easy to work with. Dinner at the Palms restaurant down the road and on the water was great also.

Mostly good but intrusive

  • 3 of 5

It was very intrusive. Constant workers in and out. Last workers showed up at 9 am on our last day and were there almost all day. Some were still asleep and then we were trying to enjoy the pool and that was awkward with them around. The alarm kept going off and we never set it. There is something wrong with the door knob. The house was well equipped and the extra refrigerators were a blessing. Well laid out and great for a large group.
