vacation rental description

 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.

A "bed & breakfast" without the breakfast!  The upgraded kitchen 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 “party” deck and floating dock. 

Sleeping accommodations are ideal for seven, but there is also a fold out twin bed suitable for a child/teenager.  The master bedroom has a spectacular view of the river and features a big king-size bed with brand new Serta pillow top mattress.

Bring your boat or contact the homeowners to schedule a guided river tour on their pontoon boat (based on availability). For more information about scheduling short boat rides or all day excursions on the river contact Tom or Holly. 

No smoking in the house, smoking is allowed outside.

Well behaved dogs under 50 lbs are welcome (one dog per vist).  Must use crate inside.

traveler reviews for this high springs house rental

Wonderful End of Summer Trip

Review submitted: August 2, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

This was a perfect vacation. Three teenage boys were entertained by the rope swing, the short tube trip to the house, the long trip by canoe. We got a boat ride to Ginnie Springs, Blue Springs, and Ichetucknee. We went about 15 miles to Bob's River House only $20 car and bring your own food and drinks. Lots more rope swings, log roll and swimming. We had company stop by and were able to sleep 9 very comfortably. The house has lots of bedding, pots, pans, towels, Grill etc. Extremely clean. relaxing on bottom deck with you feet up or on top deck enjoying the view. Lots of bird watching, and even an owl comes out at night. Description and pictures of the house very accurate and well maintained.

Get Wet and Cave Dive!

Review submitted: November 19, 2013   Date of arrival: November 9, 2013

Once again, tom and holly come through again with this wonderful property and incredible location for the best Cave Diving in North America! the location near all the best dive sights is great.
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.
Thanks again.

Great retreat

Review submitted: January 1, 2013   Date of arrival: December 27, 2012

We had a great stay! In fact, we're returning in a few months. Our kids (11,7,6) enjoyed it more than the theme parks. It's an ideal escape for fun and relaxation. The house is in great shape and the outdoor areas (dock, eating areas, patio, fire pit, porch swings) far exceeded our expectations. They have the greatest rope swing we've ever seen. The river is perfect for swimming, tubing and canoeing. The owners are accessible if anything needs attention.
