traveler reviews for this crystal river house rental

Family of 5 w/ 2 dogs

Review submitted: July 24, 2014   Date of arrival: July 12, 2014

Our family of 5 were very pleased with our rental of the 2 bed/1 bath condo. Pete is extremely prompt on returning messages and phone calls. This rental is located in a very nice & quiet neighborhood. I would recommend this rental to Crystal River vacationers. Kayaks & life vests are available for use. Three sisters is very close & beautiful. Bring your bikes to check out beautiful Crystal River. We enjoyed our stay at Pete's property & would definitely rent from him again. Thanks Pete for a great place to stay!!!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Not all it's made out to be

Review submitted: May 20, 2014   Date of arrival: May 17, 2014

This a older duplex. It is in decent shape and clean, but needs some updating. The location was great. It also has a nice car port. Pete started out to be very nice and accommodating. After we checked in we started having problems. The wireless Internet did not work the entire time we were at the unit. We re-set the modem as instructed, and it did not do anything. We also found that the a/c did not work properly. It was a "network controlled thermostat", and did not let us adjust the temperature properly due to the Internet being down. We also found that the toilet did not flush properly sometimes. The utencils and glassware were all mismatch probably from a garage sale. The furniture was outdated.The mattress in the master bedroom was very uncomfortable and firm. A washer and dryer are available, but the there is a coin collector on the washer that charges you a $1.50. per wash.

The backyard was nice and had a nice gazebo. There is a small floating dock. The water in the canal was very dirty. The boat ramp Pete said to use that was near the house is not a public ramp. It is better to go to Pete's Marina which is a public ramp. It was a logistical problem to get you car and trailer back to the unit.

I sent back Pete the survey he sent us for our stay and became very defensive. He accused me of somehow disconnecting the Internet from the unit even though it never worked when I arrived. Then he implied that I was lying about thermostat not working properly, and that again it was my fault. If that is not enough, Pete then said the only way he would update the plates and furniture is if he raised the rate and charged a security deport. He then said . . "would you be willing to pay a higher rate to stay in a place with newer furniture and matching plates"?? I hate to tell you Pete, but a set of plates and some new silverware at Walmart is only about twenty bucks!

Overall, decent place to stay if your in a bind. If the management were not so cheap they would probably do a lot better. If customer service is a priority for you . . . . be cautious!

Owners response: We appreciate constructive feedback. Most guests provide valuable information (good and bad) to help us improve. The above review became personal and provided inaccurate information which we will address.
We have a 2 nt min, this guest requested a weekend stay but wanted to book only 1 nt (early ck in Sat. AM & late ck out Sun. PM). They became upset when we limited the early check-in & late check-out. They sent an email saying although they had a great time, they were upset the internet was down, no flat screen TV and mismatched dishes (remember a 1 nt stay).
Accurate info from review: Our Unit # 2, is pet friendly 2 bdrm 1 bath value unit, "dated" means no flat screen, basic set-up (furniture 4-5 years old). Yes, it is very clean (all tile floors), in a great location & has a nice back yard w/ Gazebo on the water. The queen mattress in mstr is firm, the queen in the 2nd bdrm is soft (offered for both preferences). The washer is $1.50, the dryer is free. Water in our canal is from Kings Bay and tidal (moves in and out, not dirty). The floating dock is 8X12 w/max boat size of 25’ & we also offer a covered boat house & 100’ of sea wall.
Inaccurate info: Internet- Wifi was working and went down after they arrived according to our guest in unit #1. We called the Brighthouse who said "it appears someone sabotage the modem and reset it to factory settings on Saturday evening".
The A/C temp is controlled from the thermostat in unit (not “network controlled”). The WiFi feature lets us set temp limits, turn on A/C prior to arrival/off after depart (which is why we suspect the WiFi was disabled). We read the thermostat log & discovered the temp was set to 71 deg after their arrival.
There is a public boat ramp 3 blocks away (we have used many times)
Toilet flushes "sometimes", we don’t understand this one, our local maintenance man handles most issues w/in 24 hours.
Our intent is not to make this personal (as he did). The 1st time a guest was upset over mismatch plates, we plan to replace this month. We keep the rates low by offering a clean, secure rental in a nice location w/ standard amenities (we offer other units w/ flat screen TV’s and newer furnishings). Please read between the lines from a guest who booked 1 night & was upset we limited arrival/departure times (still offered early arrival/late departure, just not all day). If you are considering our 2/1 pet friendly unit pls contact us & we will email photos & address any concerns. Pete

Great Place to spend Christmas

Review submitted: January 14, 2014   Date of arrival: December 24, 2013

We really enjoyed the quaint little house. It was very comfortable. It sits right on one of the canals. The weather for Christmas was absolutely wonderful. We cooked Seafood Gumbo Christmas Eve and Christmas Brunch & Dinner at the house. We only ate out once while during our stay and wish we would have not had so many Christmas leftovers. Lesson learned. This was our first Christmas trip ever and it was all a learning experience. The day after Christmas we went on a manatee tour with River Adventures. We were amazed at the gentle giants. My daughter and I had a full encounter with one. It was a very spiritual encounter.

We highly recommend a drive to Homosassa Springs State Park. There were many fascinating animals and the price to enter was very fair. It was a bit of a surprise! We ate at Neon Leons and it was pretty good. A 20 minute drive to the beach was nice on Christmas day since nothing was open. There's a nice boardwalk that winds to the woods to a pier... another surprise.

The only thing I would ask for the owner to provide is utensils, especially spoons and cooking utensils and possibly more cook ware, especially a big stock pot. Luckily I brought my own gumbo pot. It would have also been good to know that you need 6 quarters to run the washing machine. It's possible it was in the paperwork he provided before we went, but I wasn't prepared. Otherwise, the house had all we needed.
