About Pete Vega

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.

Pete Vega purchased this condo in 2000

Why Pete Vega chose Crystal River

We chose Crystal River because I grew up close to the springs and remember swimming in them as a kid. I enjoyed frequent field trips and summer camps to see the manatees and swim in the springs. My first scuba trip was in King Springs, around the corner from our place. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we have....

What makes this condo unique

Crystal River is a quiet little town with plenty to offer. The springs are beautiful and less than a 2 minute paddle 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 7 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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

Nice condo and very close to Three Sister Springs

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a 3 night stay in this condo. It was great and we would stay again. We had 2 adults and 4 children and everyone slept comfortably. The condo had everything we needed when we got there, we just had to grocery shop. Pete responded to my text quickly. The location of the condo is perfect. The kids even swam in the canal right in front of the condo! Though we didnt see it, our neighbors said there was a manatee by the boat docks one morning! Our wildlife visitors included, lizards (only outside of course), a duck and her babies, turtles, apple snails, and craps. It was great. We went on a manatee tour and saw lots of manatees, but we also saw them while kayaking on our own. Three Sister Springs is closed down for the summer and that was a bummer but it didnt take away from the trip! We hung out by the entrance to the spring and it was fun.

This Place was Great...The location on the water and the fact that we had the Kayaks available to use was a treat. I will surely return. The local eateries were also very good...

Perfect location near Three Sisters Springs

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights in the condo and would definitely stay again! The condo is incredibly close to Three Sisters Springs. We spent so much time out on the kayaks and in the water. We didn't do a manatee tour - instead, we rented wet suits from the little shop next to Margarita Breeze and brought our own snorkeling gear. We saw SO MANY manatees and got to swim with SO MANY manatees! The ranger at Three Sisters Springs was so incredibly nice and let us know which manatees were the most curious. Please watch the manatee video and know the rules before swimming with these gentle giants - it is such an unforgettable and amazing experience. The condo is also close enough to kayak to Hunters Springs. And we had a great time at Homosassa State Park where we met Lu (10 minute drive). We also did a 2-hour air boat ride tour where three dolphins raced the boat! And we visited Monkey Island and Shell Island. Awesome vacation. Crackers had excellent fried gator bites and blackened oysters and Margarita Breeze had an amazing grouper rueben sandwich. Such an amazing vacation and perfect location. Unforgettable!!!

Great place with plenty of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Condo was exactly as we expected - and a bit more spacious. Water access and closeness to 3 sisters springs was fabulous. Kayaks and paddles and life jackets were easily accessible. Enjoyed the grill and cooked most of our dinners on site - no restaurant had a better view! Very convenient to grocery, etc., yet private and quite at the same time.

Thanks for a great getaway!

went beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the condo right after the Hurricane that did so much damage to the residential areas of the crystal river area . And even though Pete the owner had his hands full making sure his properties made it thru the storm he took the time to assure us that he would make sure we had a unit available.

The Condo was in wonderful condition and pete was very Quick responding to booking and general questions even helping by accomodating a last minute change of unit request wich helped make our scalloping weekend (We limited out each day) a huge success again many thanks PETE.

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your experience, yes we had our hands full and fortunately had only minor damage at our Three Sisters location so we remained up and operational. Crystal River has bounced back well with several weeks of area clean up, you will not believe there was ever a storm here (all is back to normal). This guest has stayed with us before and fortunately had faith and would overlook the clean up going on in the area and have a nice time soon after the storm. We were grateful they came and enjoyed the area and limited out on scallops (this was a really good year!). we look forward to your next visit! Pete

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was quick and very helpful with booking and providing all the local information we needed. Both condos were clean and enjoyable for our large group. We loved kayaking right down the canal to the spring and swimming with the manatees. The dock was perfect for our personal boats. Crackers was one of the restaurants the owner recommended and it was great just make sure you call to make reservations if you have a big group. Thank you for a great weekend getaway!

Owner's Response: this was a last minute request from a large party, we were able to provide multiple units side by side to accommodate. Glad they were able to take advantage of some of the fun activities Crystal River has to offer in such a short time (over the weekend). we look forward to your return....Pete
