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 Anthony purchased this condo in 2000

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....

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

EXCELLENT VALUE, WONDERFUL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Five stars for value -- this place is a fantastic deal. For the price of a hotel room, you get all the added space and comforts of a condo, plus the use of kayaks and a delightful location right on the water near Three Sisters Springs. For an active family of four looking for an inexpensive spring break location, this condo fit the bill perfectly.

Activities -- So much to do in the Kings Bay area! We brought our waverunners along and docked them right outside the condo. Favorite destinations: Kayaking around the springs and river; going out to Shell Island by waverunner; scuba diving in the Rainbow River (we went with AmPro and thought they were great); the wildlife park in Homosassa Springs; the sand beach at Fort Island; outdoor dining on the water at Crackers. We went to several different restaurants during our stay and found that people dine early in Florida -- places were practically dead by 7 PM, and service dropped off accordingly. Plan to eat at 5. :)

Expectations -- If you are expecting a high level of luxury and privacy, you should also expect to go elsewhere and pay quite a bit more. This is a clean and well-maintained older condo with all the basic comforts, in close quarters with the 3 other condos in the building. To some extent, your experience there will depend on what sort of neighbors you have that week. That said, we found that Pete was extremely helpful and responsive in resolving the minor problem we encountered. We appreciated all of the helpful information he provided and his care for our experience.

Owner's Response: This sums up the experience of guests with the right positive attitude and expectations. We offer a clean condo in a great location as a great value. We are a 4 unit building (three vacation rentals one resident/Mgr) that shares a common back yard (most guests are friendly/social and having a good time). Winter months we host many snow birds and people who come to visit the manatees. Spring and summer offers family fun (Sara and her family took advantage of what the area offers). Summer we see lots of families who are, kayaking, boating, fishing, and enjoying the Springs. Scallop season starts July 1-Sep 24th. We keep our rates low by offering the basics/comforts of a typical Florida river/water condo, add kayaks and a short paddle to the springs....a value that is hard to beat!

CONVENIENT, CLEAN AND JUST ENOUGH LOCATION IS THE TICKET HERE !!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 1 week and had a pleasant time. The spacious condo was great for just the 2 of us. It was clean and that was our #1 concern.
Thank you so much for that !!!
I could list a few improvements that are needed but they are minimal and why bother.
The reason for our stay was closeness to nature and dining at the "local" places. This was very fulfilling and more than we could ask for.
We kayaked 5 of the 7days, we saw manatees near the springs, enjoyed the day at Crystal River State Park and seeing many saved animals in Ellie Schiller State Park.
Lu the Hippo at 54 years old was great to see, taking the boat ride on Pepper Creek was divine. We thoroughly enjoyed hiking and seeing an alligator in the wild, birding and seeing so much more of nature. What a convenient location for driving around Homosassa and Crystal River.
Dining was delightful. We enjoyed Neon Leon's, the Freezer, breakfast several times at The Starting Gate and AJ's and Grannies. We lunched at the Mullet Hole, Crackers, and Charlie's were found that they were wonderful places to dine.
Thanks for a convenient accessible condo.

Owner's Response: We love to hear our guests taking advantage of the local flavor, enjoying the area attractions and dining experiences Crystal River has to offer. They also provided us some suggestions on improvements which we are implementing this week.....Thanks for the feedback!

MANATEE CAME TO VISIT EVERY DAY:)

  • 5 of 5
I was fortunate enough to be able to stay here in Sept. with my 4 year old grand-daughter and her daddy while we visited my grandmother who lives nearby in Lecanto. The location was terrific as was the set-up. The condo is clean and the photo's accurately reflect the unit.
Pete was helpful and very responsive.
We like to stay on teh river with places that have kayaks because we enjoy seeing the manatee......I am an early riser so I would go for a kayak in the morning either alone-if the 4 year old slept with daddy- or with the 4 year old if she slept with me. She spotted the first manatee of the trip and was so excited I thought she was going to jump out of the kayak to swim with the manatee. It was a mom and baby and the baby seemed to like following really close. I do recommend if you visit with small people to bring a life vest for them- Pete suggested bringing her's with us, we did and we were glad to have it.
The condo is nice and we will definitely stay again when we return in the spring.
I apologize that my review has taken so long.

FABULOUS FAMILY EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This year was our fourth year visiting this townhouse complex and we are already planning our visit next year. The units are stocked with all the comforts of home. The freshly remodeled kitchen was fully stocked with all the necessities to prepare a family sized meal. Our townhouse had clean linens, comfy beds, an ample amount of towels, plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, and coffee filters. We fill spoiled every time we visit. Our unit even had board games. We sat around the coffee table and had a family game night eating fresh grapefruit from the backyard tree.

Owner's Response: We enjoy having "regular" guests, especially families with the right attitude who come to enjoy the springs and the nature in the Kings Bay sanctuary. We receive great feedback from our regulars which helps us improve and keeps them returning for future visits. Thanks Sandra, we look forward to your next visit....Pete

PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5
The location is perfect! A manatee actually swam right in front of the dock. The condo is literally yards away from Three Sisters Springs and a few miles from Homosassa Springs. We've petted every manatee in town! We are a family of six and had ample room. ..3 grown kids in one bedroom, one on the couch, and my husband and I in the master. The living room area is a bit small, but it brought us all close together...great family game nights, which we haven't done in years! It's what you make of it! The condo was very clean. My only suggestion would be to supply more bath towels. We only had two. Note: we did't mention there would be six of us when we booked the reservation. There is a coin operated washer & dryer on site. We are already planning our next trip back. Please keep in mind this is an older Floridian town & most homes and condos are older. This one has been well cared for.

Owner's Response: We love hearing about the families that visit Crystal River with such a positive outlook, and are hear to enjoy the area. Our location is what make this property so popular, in the winter months we are visited by manatees at our dock daily (so close to the springs). BTW, this family missed the linen closet in the bathroom (behind the door) which is fully stocked with fresh linens/towels. yes this property was build in the 70's, we are updating it regularly with the most recent remodel, the kitchens.
