About Pete Vega

Pete Vega Manatee Property Mgmt, 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 Springs at Kings Bay

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

Although the City officials do not want visitors for less than 90 nights, 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.

What a great rental....

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property last minute for a week in March 2018. I was at first hesitant because I usually rent private homes due to wanting privacy and no neighbors. We arrived at this condo and it is move and small, 4 units total and the property was beautifully kept and literally right on top of the water and the unit was clean and had all the amenities we needed. The Kayaks that are included in the rental are a bonus and a half considering the canal that is approx five feet from the back door drops you out right at the head of three sisters spring (which if you stand on the dock you can look to your right and see it) and it is gorgeous. We bought some inner tubes and floated and kayaked in the springs every single day. Once your in the springs you get to experience swimming with the manatees free of charge and endless snorkeling..... every single day there were at least two and sometimes more manatees right at our dock just hanging out. There’s a grill and a nice little patio out the sliding glass door off the living room and the woman who lives in Unit 2 and caretakes the grounds was the friendliest, nicest woman..... she can pretty much help you with any small issue you may run into and even gives great advice on eating establishments and is very knowledgeable about the do’s and dont’s Of the waterways and the state park grounds. The laundry facility is located right in the side of the units and is very reasonable at $1.00 to wash and $1.50 to dry. We loved his property and cannot wait to come back and enjoy the beauty offered by the springs and this great location. Also a side note, we ate out almost every night locally within a mile radius from the house and we didn’t find one eating establishment that wasn’t excellent food and great service... FYI: little more upscale Greek Restaurant that surely deserves a five star rating is Taverna Manos, look it up and try it because you won’t be disappointed. Thank you for a wonderful, enjoyable stay and see ya soon! A++++++++++

From, Your first time New York Visitors

Needs a major upgrade as far as furnishings and upkeep

  • 2 of 5

One piece of the blinds in the upstairs bedroom was off and another came off during our stay. When we turned on the bathroom lights, all the lights went off upstairs. We had to reset the breaker. The furnishings are old and worn. The carpet rippled upstairs. The paint on the front door is badly chipped. Needs an overall upgrade.

Owner's Response: we are disappointed when we receive a 2 star review. when our guests break the blinds ("that come off during their stay") and trip the breaker (when they overload a circuit the GFI breaker is suppose to trip), we respond quickly to address these issues with our local maintenance man. Rippled carpet and a few paint chips on the exterior front door are easy to address. We hope our guests enjoy a secure clean condo with kayaks, springs and location convenient to all that Crystal River has to offer!

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo is perfect. We enjoyed kayaking and getting to see so many manatees. Homosassa State Park & Rainbow Springs were near enough to visit. Also saw some great sunsets at the beach just 10 miles away. Love the area - will be back.

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.
