Crystal River House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to The Chart House! This stunning home is located on a canal in Crystal River with direct gulf access and no bridges. The home is divided into two completely separate luxury units: the Bimini suite (upstairs) & the Key West suite (downstairs). This listing is for the 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom Key West suite that will sleep 2-4 people. It is approximately 10 minutes from King’s Bay and 20 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat. The suite has its own private dock and a fish cleaning area by the water. There are 1,100 square feet of living space downstairs. The unit also offers a full kitchen with all of the amenities. The bedroom features a queen bed, and there are two futons. There is a separate screened-in patio offering a magnificent water view. The suite was completely renovated in June 2009. Linens, towels and paper products are provided for your use. There is a stainless steel gas grill available with plenty of propane to cook up your fresh catch! It contains only brand new, high-quality furniture including Sealy Posturepedic® mattresses and Broyhill® furniture.

In Crystal River, there are plenty of things to do for the whole family, including world-class flats fishing in clear waters for red fish, trout, Spanish mackerel, cobia, and tarpon. Crystal River offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. You can catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock, or look for manatees and dolphins. Offshore, there is terrific shallow and deepwater grouper fishing. Within a short drive, there is a mall with a multiplex movie theater; restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River; kayaking; Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park; Crystal River Archaeological State Park; walking and bike trails; scuba diving; and swimming with the manatees. Plan a day trip to any of the nine state parks within 50 miles or work on your back swing at one of the 12 nearby golf courses. Please feel free to contact us if you any questions or comments.

Guestbook comments from the manager
I wouldn’t want to be locked up in a house during a rain storm anywhere else. The dock is full of cute little crabs and turtles. We caught like 10 a day!

Sherri and Doug live in Ocala, a short 45-minute drive to Crystal River. 'We really enjoy the small-town feeling in Crystal River and the natural setting along the beautiful Gulf Coast. Crystal River has the very unique combination of the fresh water bay and springs and the Gulf of Mexico just a short distance away. The Chart House is perfectly situated halfway between the two. You won't find any high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida. Yet Crystal River offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theatres, a mall, unique shops in the historic district, and more. It has it all.'

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

We chose Crystal River because we loved coming here for many years before we could get our own place. It is always a thrill to watch the manatees, dolphins, pelicans, and eagles no matter how many times we have seen them. There is nothing to compare to the fishing and boating in the area, and in the summer, it is one of the last places in Florida where you can catch live scallops. We hope you enjoy the 'Nature Coast' area as much as we do.

Sherri and I have stayed in many fine hotels and luxury vacation rentals over the years. At one point, we started to make a list of our likes and dislikes. We created the Chart House with those ideas in mind. For example, we furnished the house with top-quality beds, mattresses, sheets, comforters, and furniture. And not furniture from a garage sale or thrift store; no, everything is new and in great shape or it is replaced. The kitchen is equipped with all the items you would find in your own kitchen, including quality knives, flatware, appliances, plates, wine glasses, napkins, towels, pots and pans, soap, detergent, and spices — everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer, irons, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We do not want you running to the store; we want you to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. We recently added new decks, gas grills, flat-screen televisions, cable, Wi-Fi, free long distance phone calls, gas cookers, a fire pit, new lighting, free kayaks to use, and new outdoor seating. We have a maintenance team that keeps everything in tip top shape all year long. There is parking for several cars and at least 2 to 3 boat trailers. The backyard is fenced for the safety of your children and dogs. The porches and deck areas are screened with a special fine mesh to keep even the smallest bug out. We pride ourselves in taking care of the tiniest detail and personally inspect the home frequently. You can reach Crystal, our property manager, at 352-622-1825, and she will assist you in any way possible.

Lovely place in Crystal River

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful place for a little more than a week, and we really enjoyed it a lot. The house made us feel like we were at home. We the kayaks.
We were glad we decided to stay here rather than staying in a hotel.

Excellent house at a great value!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this wonderful house over Memorial Day Weekend 2012, both the upstairs & downstairs. The house far exceeded our expectations. The location, furnishing, decor, etc. made us feel like we were in our own home rather than a rental property. The listing description is very accurate, the house is well kept & clean. Access to the river via boat from the house is very easy. We highly recommend the Chart House and look forward to staying there again someday.

Loved it!!

  • 5 of 5
Very nice place. Quiet neighborhood. No manatees this time of year but we did get a daily visit from a dolphin making the rounds. Lots of other fish jumping We were in the area property hunting for retirement so did not get to spend a lot of time at the unit, but have no problem highly recommending it.

Amazing, private home away from home

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I recently stayed in this amazing home over Veterans’ Day weekend, and we were not disappointed. Everything from the luxury furniture to the fully furnished kitchen was convenient, homey and enjoyable. We spent mornings on our private, screened patio and snuggled up on the cushioned couch at night in front of the HD television in the living room. We made full use of the many pots and pans, and we managed to cook several breakfasts and dinners as easily as we would have at home. There was even a coffee maker to fuel my boyfriend's caffeine addiction in the mornings. Everything was clean and very well maintained, and the pictures of the well-lit rooms and comfortable furniture don't hold a candle to the real thing. One evening, we joined our neighbors in sitting at the fire pit outside, keeping warm in the brisk November air. At night, the stars shone down on the lightly splashing water, and in the daytime, we watched various marine life and boats cruise gently through the canal. There were two new kayaks to use, and the house is close to a beautiful walking trail through an archeological site nearby. Each suite in the house has a boat dock, and though we did not have a boat to bring, we watched our upstairs neighbors easily load up their boat to go fishing every morning. Our nights were quiet and peaceful, and it was calming being so close to the water. Thank you, Doug and Sherri, for an amazing, relaxing weekend. If you are looking for a place to stay in Crystal River, you've found it right here.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful weekend getaway. The property was very impressive and inviting. The personal touches made us feel welcome and right at home from the first moment we stepped inside. Everything you need is available to make your stay enjoyable and care-free. Sitting outside in the mornings with coffee and watching the dolphins play in the canal was just one of the highlights of our weekend. It was a great experience for our out of state guests. We will definetly stay here again. Thank you for the hospitality.

TN Snowbirds with Lab

  • 5 of 5
We had a great "long winter stay", met lots of people and their four-legged buddies as they stayed upstairs. There was a two-legged one (Parrot) named Ralphie too! He talked and laughed and when it was time for them to leave said, "bye-bye, got to go"! In the canal difted dolphins, an otter pair (who are with child, we think), and mid-March through mid-April the manatees visited almost every day. It was awesome. We loved Charlie's for fish, Claw-Daddies for fresh raw oysters and Cody's for steak. Then it was off to the Manatee Festival in January, Greek Festival in February and Strawberry Festival in March; and we did lots of antiquing.

Thanks Doug and Sherrie! We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an extended weekend or long-winter stay.
