About the Property

Two Bedroom, 2 Bath Cozy Home With River Views.

This is 'Old Florida' at its finest. Located on 2.3 acres on the St Johns River in Colee Cove. The house sleeps six with a pull out couch in the living area.

August 2014, we just competed a major renovation of the house by replacing all the floors with Tile and hardwood.

Two bedrooms each en suite with bathrooms and queen size beds. This is the original house on the property that was built in 1948 and moved and remodeled in 2000.

If quiet and quant is your objective-then you have found it!! The house has a porch with a view of the river and a front porch that lies under the oaks.

All the amenities exist in the house. Full kitchen, Cable TV-HD, Wi-Fi, Washer and Dryer, Grill and Smoker.

You have full access to our dock which has deep water access at 6' and full hookups. The upstairs is an enclosed screen area that boosts the most spectacular sunsets.

For the fisherman, we have a unique fishing environment with both fresh and salt species. On the fresh side-Largemouth Bass, Bream and Specs. Salt-redfish, flounder, stripped bass.

Ospreys, manatees, eagles and alligators are among the many different types of wildlife that can be spotted at various times of the year.

I always tell our guest that the house is setup just how I would want it if I was on vacation. Clean, comfortable beds, fast internet, excellent cable, charcoal grill and all that you will need in the kitchen.

Come experience what we call our daily paradise!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: As 3rd generation Floridian, my family has own property in Colee Cove since 1946. We have lived next door for 15 years and as the family grew so did our need for a larger home. In 2008 I obtained a Captains license and have preformed guided fishing trips on the St Johns river. Our family respects, loves and uses the river at every possible opportunity.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Augustine, FL, USA:
Quiet, unique, beautiful, and rare experience in a part of Florida that some never knew existed.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sunsets to the west are unbelievable. If you love to fish, then this is it! It is not every day that you can sit under 300 year old oak trees and be so close to the oldest city in America.
