Perfect for water lovers

We had 4 Adults staying for the week of 3/8/14 - 3/15/14. We really enjoyed our time there! We loved having our own boat ramp (we are kayakers and having our own boat ramp made it so easy to go in and out whenever we wanted to). We also loved the beautiful view and the fact that you could see it from inside the house even if the weather was cool or raining. You could sit on the couch and look out at the great view. We saw several manatees and at least one dolphin right in front of the house. The neighbors were friendly as was everyone going up and down the canal in their boats. This is our second year to vacation in Crystal River and this house with the boat ramp and great view was perfect. We kayaked on Crystal River, and down to Three Sisters, on Weeki Watchi River (beautiful crystal clear water and manatees), and on Rainbow River (beautiful crystal clear water but alas, no manatees there). The owners were great to work with - no problems at all! The house was exactly as described in the listing and photos. Recommend both Dan's Clam Stand (it's actually a restaurant not just a stand) and Cracker's for seafood. Michael Anthony's pizza was also good (that's my son's name so of course we had to try it). Perfect vacation for kayakers!

Warm Greeting

Lovely home with great view. Can watch the boats pass by your front window. Neighbors stopped by to say welcome and if we needed anything to call on them. Had a slight problem in one of the bathrooms and Tony came that afternoon to fix the issue. Home was equipped with basic necessities which saves on the expense of having to buy travel bottles if you do not have them.

The Manatee Festival was nice. We swam with the manatees while traveling on the BIRDS UNDERWATER BOAT. It is just down the road from Tony and Dawns place

September Scalloping

We had a great stay in this beautiful Crystal River home. Our family typically does a week scalloping trip to the Keaton Beach area, but opted to try a new location this year (and glad we did). The home was well maintained and clean with all the necessary amenities (plenty of towels and bed linens to handle our gang of 7 people). The home is in a nice quite relaxing neighborhood. The location on the canal was just a few hundred yards from the main river so access was quick and easy.

Being unfamiliar with the area we asked the owner (Tony) for a general area to start looking for scallops which he gladly provided. The scalloping was excellent, we got our limit every day usually in less than an hour. Spent the rest of the time scouting around the area for fishing spots with some success finding small rock piles with mangrove snapper (plan on building on this next year and possibly hiring a guide for a day). Also, we would travel up the river to the springs to jump in and cool off after scalloping/fishing.

Everyone had a great time and is looking forward to doing it again.

The home is very clean and in a great location. We really enjoyed morning coffee in the screened in patio area. We even got to see 2 porpoise swimming right in the canal. Thank you for sharing your home.
