About Katie Price

We are retired living in Marietta GA. We bought the property in October of 2014 as a vacation destination and an investment. We spent 8 months working to bring it up to our standards of comfort and appeal, doing most of the work ourselves. Everett is the remodeling expert, Katie is the landscape and interior designer, and photographer. We hope our visitors will enjoy the cabin as much as we do.

Katie Price purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Katie Price chose Jacksonville

We were charmed by this home the first time we saw it. Having been built in the early 20th century, it is much older than the subdivision that was developed around it in the '30s and '40s.

It is close to the Jacksonville airport, 3 minutes off of I-95, 15 minutes from downtown, Everbank Field, and riverfront attractions. The beach is only a 30 minute drive. Yet when you reach the cabin, you feel you're away from it all. Views of the Ribault (REE-bawt) River from most rooms. Across the river is tidal marsh filled with birds; manatees and dolphins can be seen from time to time. Heavy woods beyond the marsh make the property feel very private. Observing the ebb and flow of the tide gives you an ever-changing view. There are even two crab traps! Fishing off of the dock does not require a state license.

NOTE: There is a second house on the property which is leased to a nice, quiet young couple. They have a small dog that stays inside most of the time. We think we have provided sufficient privacy between the houses that you shouldn't find things uncomfortable. Becoming vacation home owners and landlords at the same time was an interesting experience.

What makes this cabin unique

Secluded location. Charming log cabin interior. Large private, fenced yard. Excellent boating and fishing destination. Great for kayaking and paddleboarding in the marshes at high tide. Property includes covered double boat dock with two 10,000 lb. boat lifts, fish cleaning station, double hammock, and kayak/canoe launch site. Public boat ramp 1/4-mi upriver, 40 minutes by boat to the ocean, 25 minutes to downtown Jacksonville where boaters can tie up almost anywhere. Watching sunsets from either of the decks or the dock is a very special experience!

Prescription for stress relief!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a "staycation". We just needed to get out of our own way for a weekend. It was perfect. The cabin and the water worked some kind of magic on all of us, leaving us refreshed and relaxed.

The property itself is enough of an attraction - no need to go anywhere. Even if you don't fish or boat, just the charm of the cabin and waterfront location makes this place really special.

One of the best vacation rentals I have stayed in. We hope to go back sometime.

Thank you Katie Price for allowing our family to spend some special time in your charming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I spent some much needed time together in your quaint little cabin! You had everything that we could've asked for or needed and more! The views were beautiful and my guys were even catching some fish from the dock, which was fabulous ! We will definitely be back to spend some more family time in this special place!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Jacksonville for a wedding. The house is just minutes from downtown. It was a beautiful, peaceful, relaxing place to stay! The attention to detail - from the decorating to the garden and the personal touches (such as photographs taken by the owner) - make it such a quaint place to stay. So much more fun than some cookie cutter hotel. The pictures posted here are great, but it was even better in person than we thought it would be. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!

Beautiful and relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at the cabin! The cabin is close to all the places we love to visit such as downtown, the beaches, the zoo, Fernandina, and shopping. The cabin is cozy and comfortable and has everything we could possibly need. We love to fish and crab from the pier and drink coffee in the morning, wine in the evening on the deck. Everett and Katie are wonderful to work with. We are looking forward to our 3rd visit.
