There are so many positives about this property. Bug proofed and well covered back patio, heated pool, BBQ, well lit for night swims, excellent child protection around pool.
The house overall is EXTREMELY well maintained. Upon arrival, we could tell right off the bat that the house had an excellent deep cleaning prior to our arrival.
The house itself was quite large at around 2500 square feet or more (property at least 7000 square feet). Very tidy two car garage with walk out from kitchen. Kitchen was VERY functional. We melted into the living room at each days end. After an hour or so in the pool of course. Master bedroom is huge and the 4 piece bath very nice and clean having a very large walk in, custom, shower stall. Secondary bathroom is nice with standard 3 piece amenities.
The remaining two bedrooms are also very nice with large closets. What doubles as a 4th bedroom is a study that we used for our 7 month old boys play room. It was easy to keep an eye on him from the kitchen while prepping the days menu, which was enjoyable to do as the kitchen is large with good flow to make life easy.
The grounds, grass and exterior in great shape and well kept. The neighborhood overall was also great. During our short stay the local residents were friendly and approachable. The neighborhood kids stopped in frequently to play with our family dog.
The house is on a corner lot that backs on to forest only. You'll have NO adjacent neighbors to worry about annoying if you decide to have a late nights in the pool while enjoying a beer and some BBQ. But do remember - this isn't a rental area. You'll be staying in a nice neighborhood where kids get up for school and parents work the next morning. So if you're looking for a place to be loud and obnoxious at night - this isn't for you.
An hour to Jacksonville, thirty minutes to Daytona, St. Augustine and Orlando. 15 minutes to the beach and beautiful state parks. Lots of grocery and shopping within 5 minutes.
Melanie P, who oversees the rental, was amazing to deal with. Our stay was made that much better by having all of our questions asked and answered very quickly.
As an inland vacay rental it is of course, not cheap. But worth every penny. It does lack close proximity to the beach but that con is made up for, ten fold, by all the pros.
Perfect for a large family with kids or two couples with a kid each, perhaps. The coin toss will be who gets the master bdrm.
Stop looking. Make this your vacay home for as long as you can afford!
And thanks to the family who owns the house and including EVERYTHING one would need to stop in. Yes, almost forgot that. Though we used very little as we came well prepped, they provided everything right down to new tootbrushes.
The House was Nice the Pool was Nice Family enjoyed. I would recommend for others it was a nice place to stay in the family enjoyed it. Close to beach to Walmart and other locations.
