About Rhett Lewis

I live in Gainesville with my two children and we love our weekends at our river house. We are happy to be able to let other families enjoy this wonderful home.

Rhett Lewis purchased this house in 2006

Why Rhett Lewis chose Jacksonville

We absolutely love the beautiful untouched beaches. We love being able to jump in our boat and head to the Ocean as well as the intercoastal or up the river. The boys constantly fish off the dock, play in the sand, or hang out by the pool. There is enough space for all our family (several generations) to get together and we always have requests from friends to have pool parties and BBQ's!

What makes this house unique

Watching huge ships cruise by, big pool, great views from the decks, plents for everyone to do with the pool table, multiple family rooms, fabulous kitchen, great fishing, close to shopping and beaches...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much! We really appreciate it! And we did so love the house and hope we will be able to stay in it again!! We could totally get used to that!! The neighbors were great, they are on my facebook now!! My guy fixed their boat; they got towed in while we were sitting there, so my guy to the rescue!! He does it a lot!! Thanks again, we will highly recommend your house! I have a ton of friends on Facebook that have made lots of comments & some questions, and have all been sent to the link! Hope you get some new people from me!! Thanks Bunches!!!

A magical day

  • 5 of 5

May 13th @ 4:30pm...I married my best-friend, The day was amazing, everything from the parking attendant to the coordinator and these things would not have possible is I haven't pick the perfect venue for this occasion. Our stay at Mr Rhett Lewis property #231586 was all we could ask for, when I reached out to him, he responded within a reasonable time and his property manager was awesome. Everything was in order, the place was cleaned, outside and inside. Again thanks you

Wonderful Weekend in Jacksonville

  • 5 of 5

I booked this house for a bachelor party for some old friends. Everyone came away impressed with the house and all it had to offer. Three decks, pool table, comfortably sleeping arrangements, huge kitchen & great outdoor grill set up. We had 10 people but would have been comfortable with more.

This property is flexible for your needs. While this trip was a bachelor party, it could have easily been used for a family vacation. Golf Courses, beaches & the city are all within a 30 minute drive.

Rhett, the owner was very accomodating and made sure our stay was going smoothly. My favorite part was watching all the ships going in and out of Jacksonville.

Lovely and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Three couples enjoyed our stay in this lovely and comfortable home. The pelicans on the pier and the ship traffic in the river provided interesting views.

Jacksonville , FL

  • 5 of 5

When we arrive we had received a HUGE Basket of special food, wine. A perfect welcome. The setting and accommodations are just what was described in VRBO. It is a peaceful area of Jacksonville. It is a short drive to many of the Amenities of Amelia Island. Also enjoyed watching the Huge Barges traverse the River.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was great to have two living areas (and be able to see one from the other to keep an eye on the kids). The pool was large enough for us all to play in. It was fascinating to watch the ships go by. And the nearby beach is excellent. We had 6 adults and 5 kids and the grandparents came over for day visits. We had plenty of room. Highly recommend this house (and I'm picky). We'll probably come back some day.
