NINOVAN "Our House" in Cheyenne Indian is a River retreat vacation rental on the Saint John's River. The 4 bedroom 2 bath home is caught between Florida's many sandy Beaches, Cape Canaveral's amazing inventions, and Orlando's Amusement Parks.

The space

A quiet house with a large cabin feel, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando and Daytona Beach but is within short driving distances from some of Florida's amazing springs and nature walks! The house boast an amazing view of the Saint John's river, the Lake Monroe Conservation area, and an intriguing historical Indian mound. The house has an unbelievable 130 feet of water front that looks as natural as it was when the house was built in 1949. Every room is flooded with natural light which gives a nature enthusiasts every opportunity to observe the constant flow of Florida's wildlife from wild turkeys, large cranes, gorgeous painted buntings, red cardinals, and of course the Florida alligators! This home is ideal for large families who love the outdoors; however, it also is set up for those who need their own space. Each bedroom is accessed through a large screened in patio which is an idea place to watch the sunrise each morning. The bathrooms are set up jack-and-jill style between two bedrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms on the second floor. There is also a library area, set loft style, above the living room overlooking the amazing view and those below. The library has a small selection of books however there is table seating, a sleeping area, and wireless internet available for those who want to get away but need to still be connected. There is also a large capacity washer and dryer set up in the breezeway for all the clothes that will need to be washed for all your outdoor adventures. The home is within walking distance to an outdoor waterfront restaurant that hosts, on occasion, live music and serves your basic grill style food which includes gator. In addition, the home is adjacent to a full service marina which is great for boating enthusiasts. Being adjacent to the marina renters who bring their own boat, with insurance, have the option to use the Sanford Boat Works facilities which includes their boat ramp, covered docking amenities, fuel dock, and their low key clubhouse that has a well maintained pool and gaming area. The use of the Sanford Boats Works facilities is an additional cost that is paid directly to the Marina. Information can be provided on request. Although the use of the marina is a boon there are public boat ramps not far from the home and more than adequate parking for more than one trailer on the property; therefore, everyone can enjoy the river, Lake Monroe, and even Lake Jesup. In addition, there is room for a family to park their RV without obstructing the view from the home. The possibilities are endless for family fun vacation!

We chose this location to celebrate my wife's 30th birthday. We had an outstanding experience here. Host was very accommodating. Access to the St Johns River was great for canoeing. Tons of wildlife both in the water and around the neighborhood. Utilized the kitchen for most meals but we did make a trip to the local river side restaurant. It's within walking distance and we had a good time there. If your looking for a nice taste of real Florida without being miles from everything, I highly recommend this listing.

My entire family gathered at Annamarie's for what turned out to be an unforgettable 3 night stay. We were so fortunate to use this gem on the St. John's as our base during our son's wedding weekend. So peaceful and beautiful. The back porches, our walks through the reserve, and backyard sand cranes really put it over the top. We can't wait to come back.
