House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps
Tom & Holly’s Santa Fe River House
Located at 2239 NE 120 Loop, Branford, Florida, this beautiful riverfront home is situated on the banks of the Santa Fe River with gorgeous views of the river. The property is located in a wooded waterfront community with its own boat ramp. This particular area of the Santa Fe River is perfect for swimming, tubing, canoeing, kayaking, diving, snorkeling, fishing and boating. Yes! Bring your boat! Launch at the private boat ramp and tie-up on the floating dock.
This house is a "bed & breakfast" without the breakfast! But you will find coffee, cream and sweeteners in the upgraded kitchen which features granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.
The house is a two story loft home with knotty cypress interior, central heat/AC, wall to wall carpeting and ceramic tile in kitchen and bathrooms. The house is completely furnished and accessorized with every convenience you may need during your stay. Ceiling fans are throughout on both floors. The covered wrap-around porch on the first floor provides additional seating and dining space. A boardwalk stretches out from the house to a large wooden deck and floating dock.
The master bedroom has a spectacular view of the river and features a big king-size bed with Serta pillow top mattress.
Free long-distance phone calls from the land line.
Well behaved dogs are welcome. The yard is completely fenced! Must use crate inside. Please contact Tom & Holly for more details.
No smoking in the house, but smoking is allowed outside on the porch.

Wonderful End of Summer Trip
Get Wet and Cave Dive!
The lower end of the property is set up for diving equipment, from hanging, organizing, drying, cleaning etc. Well lit and great storage to spread out.
The property is very secure with great neighbors and built in security dogs every watchful and fun to play with.
the design of the patios, walkways and docks (including rope swing) is totally fun and relaxing. Would suggest bringing jet skis. Canoes and kayaks are available and great fun.
One of the most relaxing places to read a book on the river.
Wifi provided, great BBQ, fun firepit, relaxing porch river views and you feel you are in a wildlife refuge between the squirrels and birds.
Cell phone coverage is sometimes iffy, but a stroll out by the river usually works fine for me.
Everything necessary is provided as well as multiple knick knacks and cave diving articles to make you feel at home.
Great job, our second but definitely not our last time for sure. Brought people from around the world for diving.
Our Best Family Vacation Yet
What Hospitality A ++++++++++++
The home was very clean both inside and out. They even left extra beach towels and blankets for us.
We went out the first night to light a fire in the fire ring, and it was already set up for us w logs and sticks. All we had to do was light the moss on top. To me that is putting in the extra effort that is very seldom seen these days.
To top it off, we called just the night before our arrival. It was a last minute vacation decision for Easter weekend. They said no problem and had the place ready for us early the next day.
