Quiet and relaxing
A lovely place to stay. All the neighbors I met were great and we enjoyed the best sunsets right down the street.
Enjoyed the stay. It was a short trip to the Crystal River by boat. Marina close by for fuel and bait. Gets a little shallow for a 22 foot boat at low tide, but all in all I'd do it again. Thanks Pete for the prompt communication when needed.
We loved our first visit to Crystal River and will be back. The house was clean and exactly as described - comfortable, well appointed, and with great information about the area. Even though it was after Manatee season, we had a great snorkeling tour with Underwater Birds during which we had some up close time with the manatees. It was great to have access to the kayaks, so we could explore on our own in the springs and canals. One morning two manatees came up to the end of the canal right by the dock. Perfect!!
Small but efficient
The unit was smaller than we expected but clean. Not a lot of cook ware to use. The front TV didn't have a remote and wouldn't turn on manually. Probably wouldn't stay there again.
There were no issues with this stay whatsoever. It's a lovely area of the state for a laid back break from the rat race! Yes, we did see a manatee in the waterway from our back patio. It is located on a quiet neighborhood, but not far off the beaten path. The unit was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. Winn Dixie is just down the road for supplies.
Thank you for being part of our Florida vacation!
Two Weeks in Crystal River
Main house was very clean, reasonably well equipped and conveniently located to many of the Crystal River activities and restaurants. Mr. Vega was very responsive to any and all requests. Outside buildings (patio and shed) needed some work...but not show stoppers.
A couple cautions worth noting
-the Master Bath room is quite "tight"....one person at a time for sure. A large person might have some problems in the shower and don't drop your soap. Fortunately, the #2 bath is very ample.
-the tides in the winter months can be quite low. If you plan on bringing a deeper draft boat and docking in the canal behind the house, beware the tides
Mike, thank for the comments...to add more detail, our outside gazebo and boat shed we ask our guests to tidy up after use, in this case the previous guest did not. Our boat shed is where we store kayak paddles and life vests and again ask our guests to leave in the same condition (as well as the grill). the master bedroom is a smaller bathroom with a smaller stand up shower. Yes a extremely large person can use it but it will be "tight" will be more comfortable using the second bathroom. Crystal River does have lower tides in the winter and higher tides in the summer. during the middle of winter and a full moon we will see a very low tide. you must stay in the middle of the canal to get in and out. summer no issues. we still request boats smaller than 25 feet. Pete
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.
