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.

Melissa Andersen purchased this house in 1947
Cozy, private family home with lots of room to roam in a yard nestled by giant oaks, the river and the ocean.
No one who comes here wants to leave. It's tucked at the end of the road with 200 feet on the intra coastal waterway. It is alive with a wide variety of bird life and full of fruit trees and mossy Oaks. From inside the house a wall of windows stretch from the kitchen to the River Room, for a full view of the intra coastal! Close to the necessities to life AND the ocean.
This was a great location to host an overnight group retreat! There was plenty of room and the owner was wonderful. She worked with us to make sure we had everything we needed.
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!
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 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.
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.
The owner made our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Being from the area, they were able to give "inside information" as to the best places. The home was well-stocked with anything you could possibly need. It easily accomodated 5 adults, 9 kids, and a dog. The owner set up mattresses and made sure each person had a place to sleep. It was private and peaceful on the intercoastal waterway. This is the perfect place to go if you are burned out and need to escape! Plenty of books to read or movies to watch, or just fish off the dock and enjoy the gorgeous creation. It is conveniently located between St. Augustine and Daytona so we were able to enjoy a long stretch of A1A beaches. The owner is the best! They are convenient and you will receive undivided attention, unlike some rental companies with several rental listings. This is by far the best value because many of the other listings charge cleaning fees and taxes. It also came stocked with breakfast foods so we didn't have to worry about getting up early and finding somewhere to eat or going to the store ourselves. I was so pleased to spend the time with my family and we didn't get on each other's nerves :) Like in small hotel rooms where you have to climb over each other and don't have room to breathe. It's home away from home.

Flagler Beach and Daytona are found a short way south on A-1-A offering opportunities for night life. Swim, golf, surf, fish, boating, relaxing, tennis or resting/something for everyone.
