Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday condo in Welaka

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Relax, relax, relax. Get away from it all in a lovely 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhouse overlooking Little Lake George. Located in Welaka, Florida - the 'Bass Fishing Capital of the World.' Across from the Oklawaha River and within boating distance of two major scenic Florida springs: Salt Springs and Silver Glen Springs. Abundant wildlife, a scenic lake view, gorgeous sunsets, and an open pool deck with gas grills provide an unmatched tranquil setting.

Go for a boat ride in the most scenic part of Florida. Go fishing in the best locations in the world. Float in the pool. Lay on the deck. Enjoy a cup of coffee on your private screened balcony overlooking a totally unspoiled view of Little lake George and the Ocala National Forest. Don't be suprised if you spot a manatee, alligator, osprey, bald eagle, wild turkey, or a white-tailed deer.

Call for discounts for long term rentals (over 2 months).

About Joan Burnett

Although I am a Florida native, my family and I fell in love with River Bend on our first visit. At the first opportunity I purchased a premium unit with the best view on site. Shortly thereafter, six of my closest friends also purchased there, including an ex-mayor of Jacksonville Florida. When not hosting renters, my family and I visit River Bend as much as possible.

Joan Burnett purchased this condo in 1997

What makes this condo unique

Best kept secret in Florida. Watching spectacular thunderstorms roll across the lake. The best fishing (and shrimping, when in season).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We brought our family down from Georgia for the holiday and had a fantastic time. We brought our own boat (but you can rent them in the area) and pulled the kids on a tube ALL DAY LONG! I looked forward to grilling steaks while watching the best sunset on the east coast at the end of the day. Joan is easy to work with and we will definitely make this an annual event.

Vacation home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place you want to visit if you want to relax in a place that seems remote yet has all the conveniences of home!!

The condo is always nice and clean! Catch some fish or bring your groceries to cook in the fully equipped kitchen!

Or, grill by the pool with a beautiful view of the river!

Enjoy the view from the big, screened balcony!

Fish, boat, or swim! It doesn't get much better than this! Home away from home with all the recreational possibilities you can imagine!

Owners are fabulous!!
