Saltwater Canal Pool Home Minutes from Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 7 Sleeps

This three bedroom, two bath home sits on a saltwater canal in Palm

Coast, and has its own private dock equipped with electricity and

water. A great rental if you'd like to vacation in a spot where you can bring your boat with you! This home sits in "sailboat country" which means there are no fixed-span bridges between you and the Atlantic Ocean. We're a short distance via boat (about 5 minutes) to the intracoastal waterway where you can head north and dock at a number of restaurants in St. Augustine or just explore to your heart's content in a number of parks and historical landmarks.

Enjoy fishing? We've caught about 15 species of fish from our dock on both live bait and artificial lures. We keep a few spare fishing poles in the garage...just bring your own tackle and have a great time! An occasional dolphin or two has been known to stop by as well...even THEY know how good the fishing can be.

If your idea of vacation includes morning walks along the Atlantic Ocean on a secluded beach, then this, too, is the place for you. We are about a 7 minute drive to Jungle Hut Park, a small ocean-front beach with parking, restrooms and showers. The beach here is hard-packed and quite wide at low-tide. Plenty of room to throw a frisbee, build sand castles and try your hand at shore-line fishing. Or take long walks or bike for miles along the sandy shore.

There are wooded lots on either side of the home, so if you're looking for peace and quiet while taking in the sun by the outdoor screened pool, this is the vacation rental for you! Check our reviews-you'll LOVE this house!

Great potential with minor improvements

  • 3 of 5

We rented this house for two months February/March 2014 based on the description on the website and the positive reviews. The house has great potential but the owners had not indicated on the website that they have dogs and we rented right after their stay. The dog hairs and pet odor were problematic because of our allergies and it was too cold to open the windows. The house is well equipped with every amenity you need but some small items in the outdated kitchen are showing age and need replacing such as the can openers, chopping board, large fry pan, etc. If possible, bring your own. The kitchen needs de-cluttering to minimize the contents of the cupboards and drawers and make it easier to find things. The extra dishes, glasses, mugs, cutlery and piles of plastic tablecloths could be stored in the garage cupboard to be available if needed. The bedrooms need a facelift (new pillows, bed linens and bedspreads). All this aside, you will enjoy a pleasant time sitting around the pool in the lanai and may even see dolphins in the canal. The view from the TV/Florida room overlooking the lanai and canal is beautiful. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood and is very private with undeveloped treed lots on either side, nice landscaping and it is very bright inside with lots of windows and an open concept. Stores and restaurants are located close by. The owners are pleasant to deal with and have tried to organize everything with your comfort in mind so that you can enjoy your stay in their home. With a few minor improvements and updates mentioned above, this house could become a great vacation rental.

Owner's Response: We rely on and value the feedback of all of our guests as to whether or not the home has everything they need to make their stay comfortable and meets their expectations. We have always been very responsive to our guests' needs and you will discover we do everything we can to address issues as they arise. For instance, in the case of allergy complaint, we immediately scheduled an additional deep clean upon notification by our guests. And it was done to their satisfaction.

Great home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there in 3 1/2 week in June and July 2012. Great place to have the vacation. It's not far to the beautiful Flagler beach, and not more than 30min if you will experience the Daytona Beach or St Augustine Beach.

The pool was used every day, and a great place for the children, grandparents and us in the age between. And the screen made it just even better.

Everything you need at one floor, if you are making breakfast, dinner or just have to do the laundry, its all there. Only thing you need to bring are yourself.

It was nice and clean, the pool and outside area was well-cared and made the stay unforgettable.

In my Family we where from the age of 3 to the mid fifty, and everyone enjoyed this home.

The owner gave us good and useful information before the stay, and in addition they have good information and tips about the area ready fore you at the kitchen.

We are from Norway, and we experienced the Disney-parks in Orlando, the beaches, old town St.Augustine, Daytona Speedway and much more...

I hope we will visit Florida again and this house would be available then.

We had a great stay.

This was our third house rental in the Palm Coast area and by far the best.We spent the month of April 2012 in this home and could not have enjoyed any more.

Because of past experience we brought many things with us.However we soon found that it was totally not necessary, because the house was equipped with anything that you would need.The homeowners were very accomodating any questions or needs were attended to immediately. The location is perfect for golfing,beach lovers (so many close choices). Shopping is close by and for us New Englanders there are 2 Dunkin Doughnuts!!! . This is really a priority. Looking forward to another April 2013.I would recommend this home highly to family and friends.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

WE loved this home...everything about it, the location, the layout of the rooms, the bathrooms, the screened lanai and the dock on the canal. It was like our own personal retreat. Palm Coast had everything we needed. The owners were accommodating and knowledgeable. We will return if it is available again.

Bike Week Sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself, along with another couple stayed here for our annual Bike Week excursion. This house was perfect for us! Two separate bedroom areas with full baths, which afforded us a little privacy, along with two living room areas. It was a little cool to take advantage of the beautiful screened pool, but the view of the canal was great. The kitchen was stocked with every amenity you would need for cooking, and having a washer & dryer available meant we could go home with clean clothes!!The property was very clean, and well-maintained - we were very pleased.

As for the Owners, they were very responsive, and sent along a great Welcome Packet, just in case you weren't familiar with the area. Also, we received our deposit back in record time!All in all, a wonderful experience for us, and we plan to stay next year, if they are agreeable and haven't rented it yet.

Great waterfront Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year at this great vacation home..

We are water people & love to boat & jet ski.We bring our boat & jet skis & moor them at the dock on the property. We ride from the dock to the great ICW in 5 minutes.. You can head north to St. Augustine or south to Daytona, either way you have great sights to see. If you go on the weekdays you have but a handfull of boats on the water. {HEAVEN)..

The house is in a safe quiet area, but close enough to all the shopping & restaurants you would need. The home has a great pool & deck area for fun & barbecues..

We are looking foward to next year for a month or two of a great vacation. I would definitly recommend this Vacation Home....
