Wonderful destination

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 3 of 5

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.

Laid back

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 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

Owner's Response: Mike, thank for the 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.

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

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.
