About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy this beautifully decorated fully furnished condo that sleeps 6. It's a ground floor unit with a nice view to the water, featuring a 47" LCD tv, dvd, stereo, and all the other amenities you need to have a fantastic vacation. The master bedroom has a King bed, wall mounted TV and features a double sink in the bathroom with a walk-in closet and separate commode area. The 2nd Bedroom has a Queen size bed, wall mounted TV and is very comfy. The futon in the river room opens to a Full size bed and is a complete 7" spring mattress that is very comfortable, (Not like some of the pull out sofas that are very uncomfortable). The kitchen seems larger than it is because the doorway wall area entering into the kitchen has been enlarged to give it a large open feeling. The Kitchen is equipped with cookware, utensils and anything else that you may need. There is plenty to keep you busy if you are into nature, like hiking or biking. Mud Springs and the Welaka State Forest is close by. If you prefer to relax and unwind, lay by the pool and catch up with your favorite novel. There is a boat dock to have your boat on-site while you are vacationing and it can be left in the water for the duration of your stay. Welaka is a small one red-light town with parks and recreation right in the town center. There is a local pharmacy and several watering holes that the locals and visitors alike enjoy. The closest grocery store is in Crescent City which is about a 15 to 20 minute drive. The corner convenience store has most items in stock, even fruit and you can buy fresh veggies right down the street.

About Trish

My husband and I have been married 27 years this June and have two grown children a son and daughter and we have three granddaughters - 10, 6, 5 yrs and a grandson 3 years old. We enjoy spending our free time on the water in Welaka and the surrounding area if we aren't traveling elsewhere.

Trish purchased this condo in 2009

Why Trish chose Welaka

I grew up in Putnam County playing on and around the St. Johns River. It was just a natural choice when we were looking for a second home to escape to on the weekends. We love that it is close enough to the city to be able to get whatever we need but far enough away to feel like we have been transported in time to a slower paced life. It is genuinely a little piece of heaven!

What makes this condo unique

We love that our unit is on the first floor and that we can walk right out the back door without fumbling with stairs or elevators. The unit is easily accessible from the front door or the back and we can sit and have dinner in the river room and watch the sun set, although the pool/tiki bar area is the best place to be to watch the beautiful sunset over the St. Johns river.

My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend in Welaka, Florida in your beautiful condo. The condo was nicely decorated and had a fully stocked kitchen. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner at "Shrimp & More" and a wonderful dinner of prime rib at "The Italian Pub and Grill". This is a very small town with nice nature trails, good eating, and a beautiful view of the St. Johns river! We will definitely return!

Great Condo in a little village!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! It's nice to be on the ground floor to walk out either door. You can see the river and the pool from the river room. The kitchen is small, but has what you need for making your meals. There are plenty of sheets, towels and blankets. Trish was quick to answer questions. There's a wonderful fruit and vegetable stand just 5 miles up the road. It's a very quiet community with lots of places to walk. It was great to have the dock for the boat.

Thanks Trish and RJ!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

2 couples stayed in this unit and loved it. Very, very clean and cozy. Enough room to spread out. Great view of the common grounds, river and pool area. Short walk to the pool and boat docks. Everything you need to cook, great coffee maker. Bed in master, comfortable. This is a nice complex if you want to visit this area of FL. I would return to this unit.
