About Richard & Tracey Abrams

We are a newly married couple from Jacksonville and would like to share our secret hideaway with you. We fell in love with the tranquility of Welaka thanks to friends that introduced us to the area.

As we approach retirement we are planning to spend more time in this golf cart community enjoying time in this romantic getaway.

Florida without the traffic and the tourist

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent January and February 2018 at Rick and Tracey's condo. The unit is very clean and has everything you need to be comfortable for a long or short term stay. Met several other renters while there and enjoyed their company around the pool for cocktails several times. The lack of traffic made riding our bikes and running the many "roads" around Welaka which are packed sand rather than blacktop very enjoyable. Also made use of the state park just down the road and the boat slip right in front of the complex.

Excellent value

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I spent the very pleasant month of March, 2017 here & were very pleased with the accommodations. The elevator & fold-up cart provided by the owners were a major plus. Rick & Tracey (the owners) were there upon our arrival to greet & acclimate us to the unit and the surrounding area. We love the pace of the life in Welaka & its proximity to surrounding points of interest. We play golf & enjoy pleasant rides to & from various golf courses (and there are plenty) while searching for new points of interest & restaurants along the way. This unit & Welaka afforded us this pleasure & we do highly recommend it.

An excellent condo for vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here Jan and Feb 2017. This condo is beautifully decorated. It has all the comforts of home and the owners (Rick & Tracey) are very nice and make you feel welcome and at home. Within a 2 hour drive you can go to Daytona Beach, Ormond Beach, Flagler Beach, Crescent Beach, St Augustine, Jacksonville, Silver Springs, etc. You have the St Johns River or the Atlantic Ocean. The small town has 4 or 5 good restaurants, an aquarium, golf course, state parks, national forests, etc. This condo and the area together offer a perfect vacation. Enjoy your stay! Tom & Rosemary

Great place to be in winter!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this unit for the last 3 years. It is always ready for us. Clean and lovely. Our home away from the north. The kitchen is indeed stocked with anything you would need. The people that live there year round and the other snow birds we have met are friendly and help the days just fly by. This town is very small and quiet.We walk, bicycle, shoot baskets and are learning pickle ball. Of course the river activities are right there too. There are several great places to eat right in town and within 5 miles of town.Hog wash has fantastic ribs,brisket and chicken!!The menus are in the condo for most local eateries. All in all a great place to visit!
