The Islander is perfect if you want to get away from it all. The condo has everything you need for a wonderful relaxing and fun vacation. All the furniture is so comfortable, lots of room for four to six people. The area is so quiet at night and you can see a beautiful sunset from the balcony. The floating dock which goes almost completely around the property provided great fishing opportunities. The property is between two canals and Marina across the way. Suwannee has two restaurants which are both excellent! They also have a market for groceries. Another nice feature is the private pool and pool house. Hard to cover all the great things about the property or its owner, Britt, who was so very nice!
My wife, two daughters aged 5 and 7, and I rented this condo for a week during Spring Break 2013. We love a lot about the place.
First, we loved the convenience of the boat ramp in proximity to the condo. It was right there on site. And we were able to dock the boat outside our back window.
Second, we loved the ease of getting bait, as there was a marina next door.
Third, we loved being able to drive back from a day on the gulf into a nice freshwater river.
Fourth, this place has the best amenities of all the places we've stayed over the past three years. Great pots and pans, silverware, etc. It sounds corny, but we've been to places with one pot, very scratched non-stick pans, and so on.
Fifth, it was COLD when we visited and being able to drive around in the golf cart was a huge plus for the kids. The wind kept us off the water most days, so we drove around the neighborhood on the cart and loved it.
Sixth, It was clean!
Seventh, the wonderful owner made wi-fi available for us, which was not advertised.
Eighth, the elevator was a nice advantage when taking heavy items up a level.
Ninth, the local restaurant was great! We loved the clam chowder and oysters. So fresh and delicious. (Salt Creek)
and Tenth, the friendliness of the people of Suwannee.
What didn't we like? I think we agree that not having great phone service was an issue. We would have to go down the street and hold the phone at a certain angle just to pick up a faint signal that would last a minute or so before getting lost again. We use AT&T. The condo has a phone, but even the land line phone has static.
If you want a nice relaxing place to vacation and have a boat, this is one fantastic place that we highly recommend. Just don't count on having phone service on your wireless phone and everything else will be perfect!
This was an absolute dream place to stay. Looking at the pictures we knew the place was nice but when we stepped inside we couldn't be more pleased! Everything we needed and more was there for us to use and it was all new! The beds were so comfortable, the appliances in the kitchen amazing, the bathrooms were wonderful and spacious! My boyfriend absolutely fell in love with the floating dock right outside the balcony. We can't wait to go back again and again!!!
We had a great time. Took the boat kept it on the slip. Every morning just get in the boat drive to marina next door get ice, bait and go fish. came back in in middle of day went to pool. went back out in evening. Ate at resturant one evening, took golf cart: Great way to travel. Can't say enough good things. Hope to go back soon.
This is a beautiful condo! Extremely well stocked and beautifully decorated. Breath taking scenery! The owners are extremely cooperative and caring! It was a wonderful vacation and can't wait to be able to go back. From the seafood restaurant, the restaurant at the marina to the BBQ's. Everything was delicious! From the crystal clear springs at the state parks to the flea markets, it was awesome! Thank you Greg and Charlotte for a great vacation!
World class fishing for bass, trout, redfish, grouper and snapper in the river, flats, creeks and gulf. Take a boat ride up the historic Suwannee River to see the abundant wildlife or swim in one of the many fresh water springs. There are many small islands to explore or relax on their sandy banks. Wildlife abounds here in this beautiful area. See all types of birds, storks, pelicans, ducks, osprey, bald eagles, herons and egrets. You may also spot alligators, dolphins, porpoise, sturgeon, tarpon and manatee. During the season, scallops are easily gathered in the grass flats around the coast. Tour the island by golf cart or bring a bicycle. Enjoy a sunset dinner at Salt Creek Restaurant where you will find fresh seafood, home cooking or ask them to prepare your fresh catch! Be sure and check out the Dixie Mainline Trail just north of town. It parallels the coast through the lower Suwannee wildlife refuge. Hike, bike or slowly drive (25 mph) this 9 mile trail through pine forest, hardwood hammock, wetlands and tidal creeks. Guided fishing trips and golf outings with teaching professional available.
