We have what you are looking for! A relaxing riverfront home on the beautiful St. John's River that is easily accessible to everything central Florida has to offer. What we knew as home growing up has been recently updated with new bath fixtures, floor covering, beds, etc. We are confident you will feel comfortable in this well-kept environment. Kick off your shoes and relax in front of the big screen television or play cards and board games in the great room which has a beautiful view of the river.
Feel free to bring your own boat, tie up to our dock, and have fun fishing, skiing or cruising down the river. Like to travel light? Then just bring your gear and fish from our private dock.
The excitement of NASCAR and Daytona International speedway, the beauty of Daytona's beaches, and the enjoyment of great outdoor activities like golf at LPGA are only 30 minutes away.
If you want to visit with Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney World Resorts are a little over an hour away, along with all of the other fun Orlando attractions. If hiding out from the rest of the world is your pursuit, then grab a refreshing beverage, relax in one of the chairs at the end of the dock, and watch your cares drift away.
Astor has a rich history of southern hospitality and old Florida charm. It was originally established as a vacation spot for New York socialites and still welcomes visitors from around the US. Fishing and relaxing on the St. John's River are still popular activities with the locals and guests. It has been our family home for over 50 years and we never tire of the tranquility and beauty of the St. John's River.
Enjoy local seafood and refreshing drinks on the river at Blackwater Inn Restaurant & Lounge which is a short walk away. The best blueberry pancakes are served at O'Brien's Cafe less than a half mile away. You can cook your own pancakes at the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant located in DeLeon Springs State Park 16 minutes away. Learn about old Florida at the Pioneer Settlement for Creative Arts in Barberville less than 10 minutes away.
The house was exactly how it was described with all the necessary items for a pleasant stay. The house is located in a great peaceful area very closed to the most popular springs in the area, Salt Springs, Alexander Springs, Juniper Springs and Blue Springs, all within 20 to 35 minute drive. We were two families with 7 children ranging from 9 to 23 years old and we had a beatiful time at this home. The owner was very helpful and very easy to do business with, I can highly recommend this house.
My husband and I, and my parents stayed here for 11 nights for some fishing and relaxation. We had an amazing time. The house was super clean, everything was provided, it was close to our favorite little restaurant there, Sparky's and so easy to get to all of our fishing holes. The owner was super nice to work with, and always responded quickly. I would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay and have a little fun.
On the St Johns River at the bridge in Astor, Fl. Excellent location. A nice dock to tie your boat. In the center of everything in the area. Enjoyed staying here very much and would recommend this to anyone.
When looking for a rental for the holiday weekend, all that mattered was the location of the house to the river.
It is literally right at the Astor Bridge!!! It could not have been on a more beautiful piece of property. So much space to roam for children and pets! The house was also very large. The furnishings/decor could be a little updated but they were in good condition and clean. Everything else was very nicely updated and all you had to bring was your clothes and food. The neighbors were pleasant and nobody bothered you. I first thought the traffic from the bridge would be annoying but it was somewhat soothing. Walking distance to my favorite restaurant Black Water Inn (awesome frozen rum runners)! I do not have one bad thing to say about our stay and we will definitely come back. Thanks again Ron
Great place to stay. I have stayed two different times. Everything was great including the fishing. Owners were very easy to work with. Could not have been any more pleased
We recently conducted a four day and officer training for Chapter Officers. The property was perfect, there were 7 teenagers and 2 adults with plenty of accommodations. We brought one queen size air mattress for the one male student, but there was room for more.
The house had plenty of space for everyone, including a large dining room table that was great for planning sessions and a spacious great room with large screen tv. The kitchen has plenty of counter space which worked well as the kids had to prepare each meal in teams of 2 or 3.
We conducted quite a few team building activities in the yard and the river front was beautiful for team and individual pictures.
Located in Astor on the St. Johns River, it is easy travels to the Volusia County Beaches (about 30-40 minutes) or natural springs such as Alexander and Juniper. Great for fishing or boating.
The only possible caveat was that there is some road noise from the nearby bridge at night in the front bedroom, but it was not enough to disturb our sleep.
I would definitely recommend this house to others. Perfect of small retreats, large families, or 2-3 small families staying together.
