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 Welaka

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.
