About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths,Sleeps 6 plus with air mattresses

This private home is located on the Matanzas river (Intracoastal waterway) in a small town on a barrier island east of Palm Coast known as The Hammock, and is nestled under 100 year old oaks. It is found in the midst of amazing opportunites for a variety of pleasures. Go nowhere but out the front door to the dock to watch the sun set over the river. while deer and wildlife walk on the opposite banks, and dolphin and manatee swim by. Awaken to the sound of pilliated woodpeckers and morning doves, the call of redtail hawks or listen to the sound of dolphins blowing as they move down the river every night. Take a short walk and find yourself on an uncrowded beach with opportunities to collect shells and sea glass, catch sun and surf or fish. Dine at the Atlantic Grill, a part of the Hammock Beach Resort where you can play golf on the course designed by Jack Nicolas. Eat at one of our local restaurants or drive north to historic St. Augustine only 20 miles away where you have ample opportunities for food, museums, shops, ghost tours, buggy rides, train tours and other tourist opportunities.

Swim with the dolphins! Marineland offers that opportunity only 5 minutes away, or visit Bings Landing and the Malacompra archeological Park, our galleries owned by noted artists, a wine and cheese shop (and Publix) or walk through Washington Oaks state garden with its rose gardens and shaded trails along the river. Drive south along A-1-A, designated a scenic highway and meander through Painters Hill, Flagler Beach, Ormond by the Sea, and on to the world's most famous beach in Daytona with its ample opportunities for nightlife... a biker's paradise...especially for the famous Bike Week and Biketober Fest.

The Hammock is only an hour and a half from Disney, Epcot, Universal Studios, Sea World and all the entertainment spots in Orlando. This location has something for everyone. Rest and relax, fish, bike, kayak, golf, tennis, sun or surf on the beach and experience both the most beautiful sunsets from the dock right out your front door or sunrises from the beach 1 minute away. You'll never want too leave this paradise vacation spot. Really!

Beautiful, relaxing pet-friendly getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time on the water with our two adult children and family dogs. We loved hanging out on the beautiful boathouse, and the house was perfect for our needs...The location is excellent with Publix just a block away and Bing's Landing park and boat ramp and beautiful Washington Oaks Gardens State Park beach just up the road. Melissa and Shannon were very helpful and responsive with everything. Highly recommend!

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our family looked for a vacation home where we could spend the week of our son's wedding. There were 13 of us ranging in age from 3 years to 91 years of age. We are so happy that we found this vacation home and were very pleased with the amenities it offered to meet the needs of all the adults and children in our group. I asked my 4 adult children for input for this review and this is what they said: Apple TV allowed us to share our photos and videos; it is an amazing location right across from the beach with the perfect set up; grill outside with a dock to fish; blender to make smoothies; big table for puzzles and games, awesome porches to hang out; cool decor; close to Publix; friendly owners who were very flexible and easy to deal with; it was awesome. The ultimate compliment - we would definitely stay there again!

Perfect for Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic Stay!! Our Family had not been all together in two years, we had decided to all meet up at the beach to stay for a week, found this gem of a rental. The rate was fantastic and the owners were amazing! They offered recommendations for lots of fun things to do, which we were excite to do, but ended up enjoying the property and each other the most. The home was perfect for our large group, 15 of us! We had 8 kids and 7 adults, Melissa made sure we were very comfortable by preparing air mattresses and bedding for everyone of us. The house was beautiful inside and out with plenty of space. We even rented a kayak one day, but spent most of our time at the beach which was just across the road. There was also a publix right across the street, which was extremely convenient since we were feeding so many, the Kitchen was very comfortable to work in even with so many.

We really enjoyed the trip so much! We are glad we didn't stay anywhere else but here and hope to do it again when the family can be together again.

Great place for large group for the Daytona 500

  • 5 of 5

Great location off the beaten path. Perfect for avoiding the traffic to the speedway. Beautiful riverfront dock. We saw dolphins feeding, baby deer playing, great fishing....we almost wanted to skip the race and stay at the house. The owner and daughter are lovely. The house has a great cabin feel with tons of room. We will be visiting again in the summer.

Beautiful property, excellent fishing dock, spotlessly clean. Great!

  • 4 of 5

Owners and caretaker are so amenable and courteous. Lovely to deal with. Very laid back, but offering good old fashioned southern hospitality. Florida vacationing at its best. The tranquility of the surroundings and the cool breezes off the dock made each day a pleasure.Even saw some deer across the river. Supermarket is directly across A1A. so is the ocean off beautiful, clean Hammock beach. Wine and cheese shop a couple of blocks up where you can enjoy the wine tasting and music on a Friday or Saturday night. We loved it. Rural, coastal, serene, lovely. Will book again. Electronics a little outdated, but if your here to stay inside and play games or watch TV then go to a hotel. This place is real Florida living.
