Perfect Riverfront Home! We didn’t Want to Leave!
This house was the perfect vacation retreat for our family. The fully equipped kitchen had everything you would need to prepare meals and all appliances were modern. The huge downstairs master bedroom suite, overlooking the beautiful St. Johns River was a pleasure to wake up in. Overall, the house was spacious with many upgrades and the river views were absolutely breathtaking. There were plenty of spare towels and bed linens and the beds were comfortable in each of the 3 bedrooms. The dock with covered boat slip made for easy access with our boat. Faye was very accommodating and provided everything we could ask for! There was even 2 Hummingbird feeders. They were so cool to watch. We highly recommend “Sportsman Paradise”! We hope to return soon to this fisherman’s paradise.
Thank you Daryl and Ellen for your wonderful review. It is always good to get feed back from our guest. Yes, the hummingbirds are amazing to watch, an extra plus when sitting outside on the porch or viewing them from the living area. I hope the boat rental turned out well for you. Seems you had some good luck fishing. Next time you will have to try crabbing, using the traps in the shed. We hope you return soon and thank you for choosing "Sportsman's Paradise" for your holiday stay. Faye, Owner
Wonderful river house
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is a beautiful home in the best location on the river. Faye is absolutely amazing and so welcoming!
So happy you enjoyed your stay at our river house. Yes, the view of the river is outstanding from our property. Seems you can see for miles. Lots of boating activities going on. You can watch the gators, turtles and other wild life alone the shore line. Sip your favorite beverage on the balcony and watch the world go by.
Raye, it is people like you that we love to have as our guest. We hope you will return soon. Thanks again. Faye, property owner
Great location and as described. I would recommend this property.
The property was right on the water and the second story balcony provided a great view of the river in the morning and evenings! The property was as described and in overall good condition. The dock was also a plus (even thought the inside slip was tricky getting into with how the jet ski lift is positioned). The bottom floor of the home was a little musty but, this is understandable with all the rain as of recent weeks. Hummingbird feeders and crab baskets also provided some relaxing entertainment! The price was a little higher than properties in proximity but overall I consider it fair for the location, condition, and amenities. I would recommend this property for those looking for a vacation get away on the river!
I am happy you enjoyed your holiday at "Sportsman Paradise". The river view is amazing from the balcony, common areas and master bedroom. Sorry it was not easy for you to use the inside boat slip. Fortunately, there is an outside slip and a covered boat house with a lift.
Hope you had good luck fishing, as it is the season. Come see us again soon.
Very Nice and clean place right on the River with large boat dock. The owner Faye is really nice and easy to work with.
Thank you Jason. The dock and boat house are a plus for boaters. The porches are great for viewing the beautiful river after a long day of fishing, tubing, jet skiing or pleasure riding to the springs.
Come see us again soon. Faye, Owner
The property was very nice and the owner was easy to work with. Very quiet neighborhood!!
Happy you had a great holiday at our river house. It is quiet and peaceful, only hear birds and boats on the river. Just the perfect place to unwind, on one of the porches over looking the river or siting on the dock enjoying your favorite beverage. Thank you Mark and Lori for choosing our home to enjoy your holiday.
Absolutely Perfect House
I would highly recommend this house to anyone. The house is on a dead end street and directly on the water. The house was very clean and updated with amazing views of the river. The boat launch is right up the road and the house had both a covered boat slip, jet ski lift and an opened slip as well. Even room at the house to park your truck and boat trailer and still have space for more vehicles. I can't say enough how nice and quick Faye was in responding to any questions we had. Just an absolute great experience and hope to be back here on Labor Day!
Thank you, John for your kind words. We do strive very hard to help our guest have a wonderful holiday. Having guest like you makes it so easy. The water views, docks and parking make it more enjoyable. So convenient to enjoy the river activities or sip your favorite beverage after a long day of fishing, boating, visiting the springs or jet skiing. I look forward to your return visit. Thanks again for selecting our home. Faye, Owner
