Nestled in a charming neighborhood with picturesque views, our lakefront retreat is sure to be your home away from home. This bright and airy 3 bedroom 2 bath home is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood on beautiful spring fed Lake Ida. This peaceful house was recently built and features all the modern conveniences you enjoy but still allows you to feel like your escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The back yard is fenced and includes a 600 sq. ft. porch with three ceiling fans and plenty of furniture, a dock with slide, a grill, a firepit and a small boat ramp.
Fish from dock for bass, bream and catfish, gar, and maybe even see an alligator or two from a distance!
Bring your small power boat to put in at the public boat ramp located three lots south of the property and ski, wake board, and raft until your hearts content.
I am a Native of St. Augustine and local Real-Estate agent. My family built this tranquil lakefront home several years ago. We have had years of family fun on beautiful Lake Ida, our home away from home.
Carol Watters purchased this house in 2011
You get so much bang for your buck. Close but still far away. Everything you need on hand so you never have to leave. Arrive day one with your groceries and sit back and relax. This property is secluded enough to feel as though you are by yourselves while close enough to any local amenities you may need.
Lake Ida is a 45 min. drive from home, the Nations Oldest City, but still far enough away for us to feel like we are on vacation as soon as we arrive.
My family has spent time at this lake house for the past three years. It has everything you may need (and even things you do not need) The owners continue to upgrade and add amenities every year. While the lake is not terribly large, it is also not crowded with boats. It is ideal for skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, etc. This property has a large covered dock with a slide that the kids just love. There is a very safe area for swimming as well. This year the owners have provided a kayak and paddle boat for renters use. The house is fairly large with three bedrooms and two baths. It is clean and modern and provided with a large screen TV and Wi-Fi. The kitchen is well-equipped with any utinsels you may need. Perhaps the best feature of this property is the ample porch that spans the entire rear of the house. With seating for 20+ people it has become the gathering spot for our family during our visits. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood yet close enough to the town of Interlachen to provide for any additional supplies you may need. I have done a considerable amount of research during the past several years and can assure you, you will not find a better deal. My only regret is sharing this hidden jewel with you. We selfishly would love to keep this secret to ourselves.
This property is a great lake to take your family. Its a great lake to tube in but fishing is not so great. My family had a great time and the house has all the amenities and a great back porch. Parking is a little tough if your bringing a boat but manageable. I would definitely stay here again the only problem I have is the way VRBO advertises the property by the time you are done paying all the fees it was actually almost twice the cost. I recommend that VRBO advertise up front that its going to cost you . This in no way has anything to do with the owners which were very helpful and understanding and will answer your calls or any questions you have. They are great people to deal with and put allot into their home to make it have everything you need. Again I would definitely stay here again.
If you are a licensed SCUBA/Nitrox/cavern or cave diver this is an awesome launch point for you to go to the mid state springs, and leave the family in an environment thy will absolutely love if they would prefer to not go with you.
Also speaking of gearing up, don't forgot to grab that golf bag, as TPC Sawgrass, and other notable golf courses are all within driving range, (no pun intended). Plus the World Golf Village is within an hours drive with other premier golf courses.
