About Monica VanHandel

Bill and Sharon Jones are the proud owners of this wonderful property. Bill was born and raised on this river system. Bills family has owned property on the Ichetucknee and Santa Fe continuously since 1958. When Bill graduated from college in 1982 he bought property himself and have been the proud owners of the Three Rivers Inn at Ira Bea's Oasis since 1989. When Sharon came along in 1996 we raised our children at our "vacation home" eventually moving there in 2009. We spent 4 years there and when the kids became heavily involved in high school sports the family moved to Lake City. There are FEW that know this river system as well. The area is all about relaxing, water, diving and tranquility. We ENCOURAGE you to ask any questions you may have!

Monica VanHandel purchased this house in 1989

Great way to celebrate my 50th birthday!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can truly say that spending my 50th birthday surrounded by friends in such a beautiful place was amazing! There were 10 of us and it was perfect! We spent days on the river kayaking and tubing and nights around the fire pit. If you are looking for somewhere on the water that offers EVERYTHING this is the place. The setting is amazing. Plenty of room to spread out and right next to the park. The house has comfy beds, two kitchens and plenty of seating for large gatherings. We all agreed this will become a yearly retreat for us! Take my advise book it! You won't regret it.

Second time visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property last Thanksgiving for a family get together and decided to do it again last weekend. Loved it the first time and just as nice this time around! Perfect place for lots of family and kids with kayak's and canoes to enjoy and cool off from the summer heat. We did have to build the fire for roasted marshmellows of course. Great yard for games and of course dock and great river area for the kids. Love it and we'll be back.

Fishing from our dock or your boat, boat ramp, 2 kayaks, 3 canoes, swimming and manatee wathching to

name a few. Crystal clear river (at low river levels in summer) ideal for tubing. Ichtucknee River

5 bends downstream, large spring in river 5 bends upstream....acts as your personal jacuzzi and a

can't miss! Rural area with abundant riding trails for ATV's or golf carts. Critter catching at

night for the youngin's.

Numerous parks are nearby such as Ginnie, Poe, Blue, Ichetucknee, Hart, and Manatee

to name a few. Nearby High Springs is known for its antiques. The Suwannee River

is also only minutes away by car or boat. Rails to trails is also a short distance away.
