We stayed here for a couple nights with our 14 year old and her girlfriend. Me and my husband and the two girls had a fabulous time. The island is beautiful and the cabin is so quaint and clean and perfect... The host, Michael is so very accommodating. He helped us put our boat in and led the way to his place on the island. He even carried in our baggage and started the campfire for us! We boated to close by Silver Glen Springs and Salt Springs. Even the teens had a great time and upon arriving home they said they missed the Island already.. We will definitely be returning for a longer period of time this summer : )
My wife and I (upper 70's), along with our daughter and son-in-law (mid 50's), and our 6lb poodle, stayed 5 nights. We also brought our boat. We found the property exactly as advertised, and even better than shown in the pictures. It is very clean, roomy, and well furnished for comfortable living. It is modern and tastefully decorated. Just bring your food and clothing. The dock and boathouse are just a few steps outside the beautiful screened porch. The dock is well furnished for lounging or fishing as well as docking your boat. The canal is 8' deep, clean, and very convenient to the St Johns River, the Oklawaha River system, and other beautiful local waterways. The area is "Old Florida" in every way. If you want a laid back, quiet, and peaceful vacation, this is the place. Yet it is a fairly short drive to the "other world" of the beach, Orlando, etc. Jim is an amazing host, and has thought of everything to make his guests comfortable and have an enjoyable stay. We have rented vacation homes through VRBO for several years. This is by far the best we have experienced in quality and reasonable cost.
We hope to visit again, and have already suggested it to several friends.
