What makes this house unique

Almost "too much of a good thing,"

‘Yellow House’ information;

If you Google Maps or GPS the address; 1997 SE 477th Avenue Old Town, Florida 32680, the driving instructions will come up. Check-in time is 3:00 pm, check-out time is 11am, unless different arrangements are made. The home will be unlocked and the porch light and some interior lights will be left on in case you arrive at night, with extra keys on a table inside, along with the internet password, TV remotes on the living room mantle, and a telephone you can call for free anywhere in the USA.

You will enjoy the Lower Suwannee and the home. It is remote, tranquil and peaceful, "isolation is a gift." The home has beds for 6 people. I have many requests for repeat renters, the home, and the Suwannee River is that enjoyable!

You can tie up a large boat at the floating dock or pontoon and smaller boats can be rented at Yellow Jacket RV Resort a mile from the home. Dogs are no problem, and if you choose there is an 8ft by 30ft gated dog pen attached to the side of the home. Manatee Springs, one of Florida's remaining pristine springs is no more than 5 minutes up river by boat, the free county boat launch area is 1 mile from the home and the Gulf is about a 45-minute ride down river by boat. Some of the best fishing on this river as claimed by a professional ‘river guide' is off the Yellow House dock.

You made a good choice with this home.

Great getaway for a family

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, and my brother and sister-in-law came to the area for my grandmother’s 90th birthday. This ended up being a great place for us to stay relatively close to them. The space isn’t fancy but it had everything we needed and comfortable beds. We loved the setting; we relaxed on the dock and the stand alone screened in room was perfect for being outside but not getting eaten by bugs. We only had a short weekend, but we enjoyed it here.

Two things we think renters should know:

1) The house is on well water; we are used to this because we have property on well water. However, being Florida, there is a sulfer smell. The owner had a purified water in a 5 gallon jug with a pump in the kitchen; however, when showering and teeth brushing it was stinky.

2) There is wi-fi. It does work. But, not everywhere in the house. During our trip, it seemed to work well in the bedrooms, and in the screened in room. Wi-fi is not the reason to rent this listing.

Overall, we loved it and we would return especially to visit family.

Our family had a great time over the holidays. This was the perfect place to get away from all the hustle and bustle but also had plenty of room for cousins to hang out! We would definitely return!

Away From it All!

  • 5 of 5

We really needed to get away from the everyday grind and this was the perfect solution. The house is very secluded on a quiet area of the river, yet only a short paddle up to the springs. There are houses on either side and across the river, but most of the time we felt like no one else was around. Everything you need is provided to have a relaxing vacation away from crowds and technology.

Really enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Yellow House. Everything was as stated in the ad. We didn't catch any fish but i think that was because all the boat traffic. But we loves getting away from our hectic daily lives and enjoying nature and the peace and quiet of the area. would definitely recommend if you want to get away from all the stress of daily life and just unwind. Thanks Barry and Becky.
