Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Pete, It's the ledys from Pickford Michigan. I was cleaning up my

computer with all the junk mail and I came upon yours(I saved it just

in case we need a week or two at your villa) Our stay was more than I

expected, Patty was a charm she had anything we needed. The kayaks

were an extra bonus, loved to go out in the morning and pick oranges

for fresh juice, and the grapefruit were a hit also. Thank you for

sharing a bit of Florida Heaven with us!! sincerely Sherry Ledy

Had a BLAST!

  • 5 of 5
My parents, my boyfriend, and I stayed in the condos on Paradise Ave. We stayed 4 nights and 5 days... and had a wonderful time! We had 2 kayaks of our own so with the 2 provided we were able to enjoy some relaxing kayak trips visiting springs on the river. The place was clean and had all we needed. We saw a mother and a calf manatee in the canal out back! It was awesome to see them so close to the docks! Well worth the money, convenient to everything in town, and we decided we need to make it a yearly family vacation! We can't wait to get back!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, and two of our dearest friends, have rented the Paradise Ave condo from Pete two years in a row and are ready to book it a third time. This understated waterfront condo is only a 5 minute kayak to Three Sisters Springs and we all refer to it as our "happy place". The condo is always clean and tidy, and the kitchen, although small, comes fully stocked with all the appliances and cooking utensils you need. This saves us quite a bit of money and we have had a lot of fun preparing meals in there! We love sitting on the upstairs balcony or the downstairs patio whenever we're not in the water with our manatee friends. The included kayaks are my most favorite bonus. The neighbors are friendly, there are multiple fruit trees in the back, and parking has never been an issue. The neighborhood is quiet and charming, and we enjoyed walking through the streets in the evenings.

We can't wait to come back to our "happy place" this winter. As long as Pete continues to own/manage this property, we'll be back every year.

Wonderful place- awesome vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place! It exceeded our expectations! The condo was very clean and very well maintained and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the use of the kayaks and had such a wonderful time using them. We are a family of four, and after checking with the other guests, were able to use theirs as well so we could all kayak at the same time. You are just a five minute kayak to Three Sisters Springs, which was so beautiful. We went on a Manatee Excursion with a local tour company and loved it! Also saw a mom and baby manatee swimming right behind the condo in the canal. Was our first time scalloping, which we also loved!
Thanks Pete for answering all our questions so quickly! We also appreciated the free wifi that was provided. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, relaxed place in a perfect location- you will love this. It was perfect for our family! We will definitely be back and can't wait!!

Can not wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5
What a great get away from the Maryland winter! Had a great time swimming with the manatees. Having access to the kayaks was great; used them every day. Did 2 dives, rainbow river was great. It was our first drift dive. Devil Den was cool in a different way. The little diner on the corner is a must for breakfast. Can not wait to come back next winter. Also the lady next door is very nice and full of tips!

For the Good Life

  • 5 of 5
We've already reserved our stay at Driftwood Villas for 2014, for our fifth straight year. The nearby manatee reserve and Springs are a strong and perennial attraction.

Family members and friends live year-round in the area, and we feel free to entertain them as overnight guests during our stays in our waterfront condo.

Everyone enjoys relaxing on the patio, the docks, and kayaking. Our dog is welcomed and safely enclosed in the back yard, and the neighborhood streets are beautiful for dog walks.

Nice public and semi-private golf courses, homes to numerous shore birds, are very near our condo.

We've easily found great places to eat out--for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, although our complete kitchen is also fun for home-cooked meals. On-site coin-operated laundry facilities are an important convenience; a movie multiplex is nearby, as are a citrus stand and many well-known tourist attractions.

Come with an empty duffel bag for clothing bargains at the outlet store in town.

Location

Activity and Interests

The City of Crystal River is built around Kings Bay, a manatee

sanctuary popular for snorkling or scuba diving in the winter when

manatees are in abundance. Summer offers a warm area for all types of

water sports including snorkeling, Scuba and great fishing with the

constant cool waters from the springs to keep

you comfortable. Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico for year round

fishing and when in season, scalloping. Fast becoming an area known

for ecotourism with a large number of nature trails, parks and a

canoe trail. For the Golfing enthusiasts we have 9 courses enough to

keep you busy all week. Lots of shopping for the bargain hunters.

Close enough for day trips to Orlando and Tampa for all the major

theme parks.
