Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in East Palatka - Riverfront Paradise!

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This lovely 2 bedroom/2 bath home features 140' of riverfront property where you can sit and watch the sun set over the St. Johns River. The beautiful views and nature enriched environment will sooth your body and soul.

One bedroom has a queen bed, attached full bath with shower and walk in closet including a view of the river. The second bedroom has a king size bed with a connecting door to the huge guest bathroom with shower and linen closet. The large living room has a queen size sleeper sofa, wood burning fireplace and 42" HD flat screen TV. The dining room table seats 6. The living and dining rooms have full size panoramic windows facing the river. The fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, gas stove, corian counters, wine cooler and microwave.

Additional amenities include:

• Fast Wifi

• Garage parking for 1 car, additional parking areas along the side

• Washer and dryer

• All linens are included

There is plenty to do in the area. With just a short hop over the bridge into the City of Palatka, you can enjoy the Palatka Golf Club-designed by Donald Ross and established in 1925, launch your boat at the brand new city marina, take a stroll around the Ravine Gardens State Park, or enjoy shopping in the historic downtown Palatka area while trying to view as many of the unique murals painted on the buildings as you can find. There are several unique dining options available as well. Or if you prefer, it is a short ride to Gainesville, Jacksonville, Orlando or the oldest city in the US--St Augustine.

Bring your camera and binoculars to catch sight of the various types of wildlife that come by the property. It is common to see alligators, hawks, turtles, manatees, bats and a wide variety of water fowl that inhabit the area.

Bring your boat and fishing tackle -- Putnam County is the premier Large-mouth Bass fishing spot in Florida. With either a scenic boat ride to Lake George (the 2nd largest fresh water lake in the state), you could be fishing for tonight's dinner or take a short ride over to Crescent Lake and enjoy the absolute BEST Bloody Mary's anywhere at the 3 Bananas Restaurant. There is no shortage of fun things to do here, so book your stay now.

About Linda Bosque

My husband and I have owned property in the Palatka area for the last 10 years. We recently acquired this house on the St. Johns River and totally fell in love with it. We have recently retired; my husband was with the Fire Department and I was a Police Communications Supervisor here in South Florida. We have served our community for many years and loved the work that we did. While we still have ties to our South Florida home, we cannot help being drawn to the quiet and friendly Northeast Florida culture that we found here in Palatka where just walking down the street, total strangers wave and say hi as they pass you by. It is a total departure from the hustle and bustle of Miami. We are so blessed to be able to have the opportunity to experience all the varied lifestyles that Florida has to offer.

Linda Bosque purchased this house in 2015

Why Linda Bosque chose Florida

It is always amazing how different the view is from the panoramic windows of this beautiful home. One day you are looking out across the waterway at a lightning storm and the next, the skies are crystal clear blue, sometimes during the space of a few hours. It is the most beautiful and awesome sight and we would like to share I with you. They call it "God's Country" here and it is so true. We have always loved the water... sailing, power boats, fishing, shrimping, diving, swimming and snorkeling; so it is no wonder that this place is such a perfect fit for us. Also, we love the distinct change of seasons that you get here in Northern Florida (mind you, without all the snow). It allows us to use the fireplace once in a while, and really enjoy that afternoon 2.5 mile roundtrip walk/jog over the bridge spanning the St. Johns River. It is breathtakingly beautiful and peaceful here. The varied wildlife is amazing and a joy to watch.

BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 5 nights here. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures depict. The view from the living room is gorgeous. It looks right out to the river. The open, covered back porch is a perfect spot for reading or just taking in the view. Hubby fished every day off the bank and dock of the property. Although he didn't catch much, he still enjoyed trying. We saw some wildlife (gators, several species of birds and even an otter in the canal).

The Linda, the owner, was a joy to work with and made the whole process easy. She checked in with us to be sure we had everything we needed. She also returned our security deposit right away. The house is beautifully decorated. The entire house was well stocked down to laundry supplies and essentials in the kitchen, such as spices, cooking oil, coffee, etc. All you need to provide are groceries for your meals. There is a Wal-Mart and Publix across the bridge in Palatka.

Gainesville is an hour away, so we went to the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo one day (our youngest daughter is in the program there training to be a zoo keeper), and went to Ravine Gardens one day, but mostly just relaxed at the house. This was the most laid back vacation I have ever had. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful.

Thank you Linda for sharing your beautiful home with us. We would like to return in the future and would definitely recommend this rental property.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 6 days in this lovely home and the first 2 days we just sat in the living room enjoying the lovely views out the big windows. We did not even turn the TV on. My 2 sons came to see us and had a blast catching blue crabs. The place is magical and better then we expected. We would definitely rent this lovely home again.

Thank You Linda
