3BR, 3 bath, Sleep 6, with incredible water and island views!
This two-story, three bedroom, three bath home has incredible views of the Nassau River, Intracoastal Waterway, and Amelia Island. It's set on Black Hammock Island in Northeast Jacksonville in the midst of scenic natural beauty. Within a few miles are four national, state, and local parks and preserves with hiking trails, horseback riding, canoe and boat launches and incredible beauty - Florida as it was hundreds of years ago. The house is in a very quiet, peaceful area. While you are a little over a mile from the beach as a crow flies, it's actually a 30 minute trip to get out to some fabulous beaches - fair warning. We've done a lot of work on the house drywalling, painting, cleaning carpets, equipping the kitchen etc, but it is still a little rough around the edges. Great for the adventurous type, but if you're overly fastidious, this probably isn't the place for you. Also, a few of our guests have complained of allergy problems. You are on a marsh and it is a coastal area, so typically quite humid - if someone in your party has asthma or sensitive allergies, we're also not a good fit (although we will lend you an air purifier on request). The home is on well and septic, so we advise people to bring their own drinking water. There is a water softener system and aerator on site. There is wifi, books, games, a color television with local channels, and a DVD player for your entertainment. There is a tidal creek that comes up close to the property, but you have to wade through the marsh to get to the creek. Two bedrooms have large comfortable king beds (one an Italian adjustable) and the other has twin beds. Comfy couches, too!
Note: This is a Non-smoking house. Any guests who smoke inside the property will be responsible for all costs of removing the smell from the home.
