Two Weeks in Crystal River

  • 4 of 5

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" 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

Listed 2nd bathroom not there....why disappoint folks with that small deception? Honesty is better.

  • 3 of 5

Malfunctioning AC, repaired after two uncomfortable nights. Good wi-fi, skimpy with kitchen towels (one provided), had to use a shopping bag for bathroom waste basket, laundry room not cleaned and cluttered with broken stuff. Location great for kayaking to see manatees and for birding. Mixed bag and most of the negatives could easily be remedied.

Owner's Response: At this location we offer two units, both a two bedroom two bath and a two bedroom one bath units. We were up front with this guest (2 adults and one child) with our correspondence they were booking the 2/1. I personally met with this guest upon their arrival, we walked thru the unit to make sure they were satisfied and discovered the thermostate on the A/C was not working on Dec 26th, it was repaired on Dec 27th. We offer two dish towels in each unit and a waste paper basket in each bathroom. the laundry room is a separate area in the carport that we use as a storage space, as well as a laundry area. we are surprised this guest didn't mention the wonderful experience their granddaughter had interacting with manatees, how quickly we responded to their requests and how I spend extra time showing them how to operate the TV (they could not figure out how t operate the Direct TV remote). If this guests only complaints are number of dish towels, a waste paper basket in the bathroom and cluttered laundry room, we will have this corrected before our next guest arrives...Pete

A 3 day getaway and it was nice to have the amenities of the kayaks to go out and see the manatees and jumping mullet! The facilities met our expectations.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Even though this was a last minute decision to visit Crystal River... Pete really went the extra mile to accommodate us with booking and payments etc.. His communication was brilliant. The location was perfect and the unit was exactly what we were looking for. The kayaks were a hit and we used them every day.. This is a good spot for birding and photography! I believe there are good restaurants in the area but we never made it to any.... The back yard bbq overlooking the water was way too comfortable! The unit had everything we needed and I believe there is a tv inside somewhere... but... we never felt the need to sit inside. The yard, gazebo and dock were all we needed. The manatees were great... We had a nice paddle over to see them in 3 Sisters! It is quiet and comfortable... a great escape... we will be back! Brilliant.. Thank You!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the last couple of years in July for scalloping. It's in the middle of everything you need. Daily schedule is springs in the morning, scalloping & fishing, then back to the springs. Catching crab in the cannel while dinner is cooking. Then kayaking the river or into town for a movie or to the beach for a sunset. Some times you can catch small fettler crabs around the dock for fishing. The rental is clean and comfortable. We have never had any problems here. Pete is a great guy to rent from.

Activity and Interests

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.
