We spent one whole month in February in this beautiful home, first time we got in it was wow! huge home. Plenty of space. We have saved in a way because we were 3 couples shared the rent for a spacious home. Sea food restaurant is almost just across the street and another one the Blackwater Inn restaurant by the water at St. Johns River, foods are amazing. We cruise around St. Johns River and fishing must be a lot of fun, should have brought my fishing stuff with me. It was a lot of home for the money.
