Entry to the grounds is thru an open gate that has 2 brick column walls on either side. You will follow the path as it winds through the woods until you reach the Tree House. Please be aware - it will be bumpy and may be affected if it is raining at all. Low sitting vehicles will not navigate the path very well - so be aware!

Frequently Asked Questions

The primary purpose of a bathroom exhaust fan is to remove the moisture out of the bathroom.   These fans help control and eliminate bathroom odors as well.   It will rid the bathroom air of excess moisture, humidity, and other pollutants.

When should you operate the fan?   According to the HVI (Home Ventilation Institute) bathroom fans should only be operating for about 20 minutes during and after a bath or shower.  

Should the fan be left on all day or left on all night?     You especially should never leave the fan on all of the time.  If it is run too long, it can overheat and become a serious problem and fire hazard.  
In the garage you will find a kayak and blowup boat that you may use in the creek that the property is on. Please just rinse the amenities with the water hose located on the outside of the property. Any items missing or damaged will result in additional charges.
Please remember you are in Florida, where temperatures routinely exceed 90 degrees during the day. A properly functioning AC system can, at the most, lower the temperature 20 degrees from the outside temperature, so if it's over 90 degrees outside, the AC will struggle to cool the house below 75 degrees. Setting the temperature 20 degrees or more below the outside temperature or running it with windows and/or doors open will cause the AC system to run excessively while it attempts to achieve the set temperature and may cause the HVAC system to freeze and malfunction.  If this happens, you may incur an additional charge for AC repair and you will not have any AC until the repair service is able to resolve the issue.  Refunds are not given for this.  We recommend keeping blinds and curtains closed during the day to limit light/heat from entering the property.  The hottest part of the day will be between 2pm and 7pm - you should not anticipate the AC to be able to start to drop the temperature lower until after that time has past and the sun has set.
We get asked about Palmetto Bugs all the time.  They have been in Florida for a LONG TIME!  They can be pretty big, they fly and will scurry around the floor but they are largely harmless. They do occasionally come inside, especially at night and during or after any storms. We have a lot more sightings during our summer rainy season.  We have regular pest control service at all of our properties to assist in managing them.  However, they will get in thru open doors, garages, windows, etc.  

Tree Frogs & Lizards are also indigenous to our tropical climate and will be around all of our properties.   These are good for the environment and are not anything that we treat for!  You may find the occasional one has gotten into the property and not made it out - or has gotten in and is hopping around.   There is nothing wrong with this - it is part of our local environment.  

This is really just informational.  They are a part of our Florida Tropical Climate.  No refunds are given for these issues. Thank you!

  • Firearms must be unloaded

Please be aware - when you bring in all of your groceries and load up the refrigerator - it is going to take time to cool everything back down!  Make sure you do not block the vent that brings in the air-flow.  The more full the refrigerator is - the harder it is to keep everything cool.  It needs unrestricted air-flow & circulation to be able to keep everything to the appropriate temperature.  Once you put everything in - please wait a minimum of 4 hours before reaching out that there is an issue.  We won't be able to do anything until that much time has already passed since you inserted your items.  Thank You!
Guests are not authorized to perform, schedule or coordinate any repairs to anything at the property during their stay.  Any issues that arise where maintenance or repairs are needed will be coordinated by the host only.  


Transition while purchasing our new home
5/5 stars
My family loves the Tree House! We lived there 10 days between home sale and close. The place looks like a Las Vegas suite on stilts. It's really nice upstairs. The AC will freeze you! The man cave was perfect, our Son lived there. There is a full bath down there and a small fridge, full internet and TV. The boat ramp is in excellent shape and I got the honor of breaking in the huge fire pit! You can cook upstairs or grill downstairs. Close to Jax, St. Augustine, and close enough to Daytona and Orlando for day trips. The Florida Trail system is accessible just thirsty minutes away. Comfy beds and couches, great balcony. It's great all around. Take drinking water because the water has sulfur in it, normal but it's on a well and your coffee will be different.

We are so happy we could provide you a great in between place! Thank you for staying with us and for breaking in the new firepit! So happy you enjoyed everything! Best Wishes, Bart & Sue

5/5 stars
Wanted to take a moment to leave a review for our recent stay during the Memorial Day weekend. The location and home were a great find and a perfect place to spend a relaxing weekend on the creek. Home was very welcoming and the downstairs man cave was a definite plus. Great place to hang out, play darts and cornnhole and spend time with the family. Deer and turkeys paid us a visit, as well. Definitely plan to return in the future!

A Great time at the Tree House
5/5 stars
Had a wonderful two night stay at the Tree House. We launched our boat from the boat launch on the property and went fishing along the black creek, grilled and enjoyed the scenery during the stay. If we could we we would've booked a longer stay based on the time we had.
