About the Owner

Our new family lives just outside of Orlando which is approximately 1.5 hours from Crystal River. We are all Florida natives; Pete grew up in Inverness which is the town next to our vacation condos and why we chose Crystal River. We like the laid back sleepy little town feel and fell in love with the areas springs, specifically Three Sisters. What started as a weekend get a way has turned into a wonderful place we are happy to share.

Beautiful home in private, residential area!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with all the amenities including the use of three kayaks. In minutes, you are able to paddle into some of the most beautiful sawgrass meadows famous in this area of Old Florida. The house was spotless when we arrived and easily accomodated our large family.

We would recommend this home to our friends. If you are bringing a boat, you need to speak to the guys at Twin Rivers Marina (just a mile or so away) about navigating the waterway back to the house. The neighbors were very friendly and it is a quiet, family type atmosphere. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!!

Owner's Response: We could not sum it up any better, if you want to get a flavor of "old Florida", this is a great location. We welcome families with a sense of adventure! Pete

Peaceful setting

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Woods N Waters. We were in the area for a week and wanted a house vs a hotel or motel. We chose this location because of the opportunity to kayak in the marshes in the early morning. Lots of wildlife. Our first morning we saw three otters romping around. So if you're into nature, this location is ideal. The kayaks were fishing quality and very comfortable.

I rented a bike from town and rode to the beach a number of times. All of the roads have bike lanes or very wide berms. The bike rentals in town are $30/day and we were able to fit the bike in the back of the rental car with the quick release hub.

The little beach/pier/walking trail area was wonderful. It wasn't busy and was just really interesting and relaxing.

The beds were comfortable and the entire house was very organized and clean. The living room furniture wasn't the most comfortable, but adequate. It was nice having the washer and dryer. There weren't any "extras" that I typically find in VRBO rentals--no condiments, extra garbage bags, hair dryer but this may change because I gave feedback to the owner who was very receptive to feedback.

Owner's Response: This guest highlighted why this home/location is so ideal, we do have a lot of nature and beautiful scenery close and offer quality kayaks and a lot to do in the area. We appreciate the feedback, and want to continue to improve. Yes we have added salt an pepper shakers and replaced the missing hair dryer and will continue to leave 5 extra trash bags at this guests request.

Beautiful Home on Crystal River

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. It was decorated nicely and very clean. It was stocked with all necessary items. Our children enjoyed their stay especially being right on the river and the kayaks were a plus! We would recommend this place and would stay here again!

From the Owner

Crystal River is a quiet little town with plenty to offer. The springs are beautiful and less than a 20 minute boat ride from our dock. On any given morning you can see manatees and dolphin swim by our dock, boat or paddle to waterfront restaurants and enjoy the nature preserve in Kings Bay. A 3 mile scenic boat ride takes you to the Gulf of Mexico where there is fantastic fishing, nature viewing and in the summer, scallop harvesting. You will enjoy near by Homosassa Wildlife Park and Indian burial grounds which leave a lot to explore. Golf courses, bike/hiking trails close will allow for an active vacation if desired.

From the Owner

We love our Bald Eagle home for several reasons including the quiet neighborhood surrounded by nature. We enjoy the 360 degree wrap-a-round Deck with beautiful views of old Florida and the Salt River as well as the tidal canal and our floating dock and sea wall in the back yard. You will love to open floor plan and the newly remodeled kitchen. It is great for families with the main house on the 2nd level and the third bedroom on the lower level with a private entrance (great for teens or guests). Covered parking and boat/trailer parking included.
