Photos and Description of the Starke vacation house rental

Sandy Bottom, Crystal Clear Lakefront Property Sleeping 16

Welcome to our fantastic lake get-away. Nestled in the quaint community of Kingsley Lake, this is your home-away-from-home. The main house is three bedrooms and two baths with sofa beds and a sunroom with daybeds. Covered walkways will guide you to the cottage that sleeps 3 with a full bath. Everything has been fully renovated in 2013 and is completely modernized but still has the lake-life feel to engulf and totally relax you. In the house, just some of the things you will enjoy are Sleep Number Beds, 5 HD Direct TVs, WiFi, a deep-seated copper tub and true hardwood floors throughout. Enjoy fishing and boating year round, or just simply lounge in the hammock or porch gazing at the lake. Relax at several different sitting spots in the gardens surrounding the house to watch the Bald Eagles that are perching year round. If you are the fisherman, remember that over 14 lb largemouth bass have been caught in Kingsley Lake the last two years in a row. Bottom-line, must see the attached pictures to fully understand the beauty of this property.

Kingsley Lake is a small quaint community with under an hour access to the City of Jacksonville and its attractions and nightlife, the beautiful historic St. Augustine and it's gorgeous beaches, and the college town of Gainesville home of the University of Florida Gators. The rural town of Starke is 10 miles away, which has all of the fast food options, plus shopping and hometown dining options. Enjoy a margarita at the local mexican restaurant or a game on the big screen at the local grill.

Kingsley Lake is a private-owned lake with no public access. It has stayed pristine and crystal clear and has the honor of being an Outstanding Florida Waterway. It is an almost circular lake of about 2,000 acres, frequently called the Silver Dollar lake. Some sources label it as the oldest and highest lake in Florida. Kingsley Lake is famous for its clear waters, sandy bottom, water skiing and fishing. It is a unique lake in that it is totally free of water hyacinths, hydrilla and other obnoxious growth. Members of the military can access Camp Blanding, which occupies 1/2 of the land surrounding the lake. Anyone can enjoy the historic Camp Blanding Museum and Memorial Park established in 1939, which is only two miles away.

There is also a small park for children to play and tennis courts only a mile away from the property.
