Perfect Get-Away for a Quiet Weekend
The Acorn Cottoge is the perfect get-away for a quiet weekend. The home is very clean and very well stocked with extras such as books, puzzles, movies and cds. Both the back porch and deck area are very relaxing. The location is peaceful. It is far enough away from the typical hustle and bustle yet close enough to areas that provide good entertainment. The owner was very pleasant and easy to work with.
Great location and confortable for the most part.
The property was in a perfect location for the river trips we had planned in our boat, which we docked right there at the house. The house was clean. Linens and supplies were plentiful. The kitchen was well equipped with everything except a dishwasher. The only negative was the condition of the deck (many loose boards which were a trip hazard) and the air conditioning not working well in the front bedroom and bathroom. The owner was accessible for our questions. Overall it was very acceptable.
The house was perfect for our travel needs!
Acorn Cottage worked out perfect for us. The screened in porch was perfect for enjoying the morning cup of coffee. The neighborhood was very quiet. Didn't bring fishing gear, but if we had, we could have fished off of the dock.
GREAT BOATING & FISHING IN ASTOR
My husband and I have rented many homes on the St. Johns and we particularly love the Astor area. Acorn Cottage is very clean, has great access to the river via a short canal ride and super dockage. The owner was easy to work with and probably rents other VRBOs because he provided all sorts of little extras that made our stay better (i.e., books and movies on hand for rainy days, extra candles for back porch ambience, basic spices and paper goods on an honor system (use, but replace)). Acorn cottage is not fancy or large, but it is comfortable, convenient, safe, quiet, well-equipped and clean. The place is perfect for a boating and/or fishing weekend or vacation. Our favorite things about the rental were the back porch, its location on the river and the attention/customer service we received from the owner. We hope to rent there again and again.
Great place and location
This was a great place, clean and quiet! I was looking for a place to get away from the rat race... This was it! The dock and screened porch were perfect, fire pit on the dock was an awesome place to enjoy the fire and the peace and quiet. Accommodations are very clean and comfortable, will definitely go back.
