My wife and I have five daughters and have spent many wonderful vacations in this home.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

This home is within an hours driving time from our full time home. There is a also local airport within 2 miles. Anything water related is avaiable. Just 6 miles to the Gulf of Mexico on a large clear river.

The area is known as 'Seven Rivers' as there are literally seven navigable rivers within the local district. Swimming, fishing, diving, snorkelling, kyaking, etc. are all right at your doorstep!

We enjoyed the house very much. It was clean and comfortable and had plenty of space. I hope to rent it again next year.

Beautiful property, wish I had brought a jetski or boat.

My brother rented this house while we worked on some nearby property. I was pleasantly surprised at how nicely furnished the house was, and even linens and other items that often are not even provided by the owner were of exceptional quality. To be able to walk out back and jump in a boat or on a jetski were great amenities, even if we couldn't take advantage of them. The neighborhood is quiet, but was close to restaurants, grocery stores and other services. If you want to enjoy Crystal River and have a small boat, this is the ideal location. As a native Floridian, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Don't need to repeat the same stuff as listed in all of the other reviews. All of them are 5-Star and that should tell you everything. Without fail, everyone in our group agreed that it was the most relaxing time any of us had ever had on a vacation, and that was Thanksgiving week! Looking forward to the next one, and the next,...

Great Vacation Home

We stayed in this home during Spring Break and had a wonderful week. The house itself is well-furnished and has pretty much everything you'd ever need (towels, kitchen supplies etc). It's also a deceptively large house, with lots of room for a large family. The back porch is really large and comfortable and has a great view, but our favorite place to hang out was definitely the dock. So much fun to sit and watch for wildlife to come by. Swimming down the river to the spring was fun too, and we were lucky enough to see lots of manatees -- late afternoon is the best time to go when the human traffic is down.

Relaxing Time for the Family

We stayed here and loved it. We are very finicky about clean and fresh - the house is spotless and comfortable. Crystal River is a favorite of ours. We rented kayaks at A Crystal River company which has a launch just 10 minutes paddling past the canal that the house is on, all along the same neighborhood. We rented paddle boards from Birds Underwater Tours just 10 minutes up rt 19. The new kitchen is lovely with two ovens. The nice new washer dryer set was very handy. Beds were comfortable and plenty of linens and blankets. A lot of wildlife to view on the water and a friendly heron visits often. We also recommend River Safaris located on Yulee Road, past the Wildlife Park in Homossasa to rent a pontoon and tour the Homossassa River from the blue springs area to the gulf. There is a nice swimming spring there as well. We bought groceries at Publix which had a good selection of natural/organic foods for a supermarket. My father enjoyed the large screened porch a lot. The house is mostly one level and has a large walk in 2-person sized shower as well as a full bath with tub.
