About Tom Baine

Native of Jacksonville, Florida, and life-long boater and private pilot. I enjoy jetskiing, fishing, and relaxing on the water.

Tom Baine purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Tom Baine chose Florida North Central Gulf Coast

Excellent location for fishing and boating. I also enjoy taking out the jetski and just relaxing in a natural environment, away from the everyday hustle and bustle, but close to great restaurants and an enjoyable nightlife as well.

What makes this townhome unique

With this townhouse, you have access to a private boat ramp and a private boat slip. There is a fish cleaning house on the dock, so you can clean your fish out there before bringing them in. A very nice pool and outdoor area (with tables and umbrellas) are available as well as a number of gas grills are available for guests.

Awesome view, right on the river. Great place nice and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoy this rental, along with the views. Everything was provided, Tom the owner was a pleasure to speak with. We enjoyed the pool and friendly neighbors. The rental was clean and had updates done.

I would highly recommend this place for people who like quiet and out of the limelight places. You want rest and relaxation this is it. You can watch the boaters and resident gators all day from your living room.

Overall this place is worth the trip, I would return in the near future.

Beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

Had a good time in a very nice envirment. The pool was really clean and we really enjoyed the view of the river and the boats. The condo was clean and had every thing we needed. We would rent there again and we will tell our friends and family about you.

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great except for washing clothes. This is the only condo of 10 we have stayed at that we had to leave the unit and pay to wash clothes. That said we had a wonderful time fishing beautiful St. John's river.

Wonderful Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time at Fisherman's Paradise (even though I didn't fish!). I loved looking out at the water all day long. Best of all, with the screened porch facing South, I had sunshine on the porch most of the day as well as nice views of sunrises and sunsets. The hardest decision I had to make was whether to relax on the lounge chair or the porch swing! The accommodation was extremely comfortable and inviting. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was adequate for my needs. (If you need a bathtub this wouldn't work for you but for me the large shower was totally fine!) The kitchen was well equipped with everything you might need. Wifi was also excellent. The listing photos are totally accurate.

I hardly ever heard the neighbors unless they were on their porch. One neighbor had a large dog but I think I only heard it bark twice! Incredible!

There is a nice pool with tables and lounge chairs but I didn't make use of it or of the boat slip area.

My only problem was sketchy cell phone reception. However, Tom has said he is going to install a land line. That will be a nice plus.

All in all I totally wish I had been able to stay longer! My month went by way too fast!!!
