Owners are lifetime Florida residents, University of Florida Gators with two U of FL student daughters. Since 2003 this has been a weekend home. Currently wish to sell for $275,000 so we can locate closer to children and grandchildren.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2003

You can book this private home for the price of a condo! Memories are made here! This is a fun and peaceful place for a couple or a family. Canal on one side with river view, and wildlife preserve on the other side.

Perfect location for scalloping,... + fishing, kayaking, swimming near manatees, and water activities.

Drink your coffee viewing morning sunrise from the porch. Sun is behind the house in late afternoon. Large covered grilling area downstairs is great for hanging out near the waterfront! Owner loves to help guests enjoy their stay!

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME IN CRYSTAL RIVER

  • 4 of 5
Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. We had a great time on the river. We were close to quite a few springs. Having the boat dock was a plus as we had rented a pontoon and were able to pull right up for a short stop in. Also able to launch our kayaks quite easily. We enjoyed fishing off the dock. Caught a few catfish. We saw a very large fish swim by the dock. Our fishing poles were not big enough! :) Very peaceful.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I appreciated the personal greetings on arrival, weather forecast, cookies and a nice note welcoming us. The house was open and spacious. The raised deck on the back of the house facing the canal was awesome for evening relaxation. We entertained our family of 11 for dinner and had plenty of room. It is minutes away from the beach and boat ramp. You have a great dock for mooring the boat, the list just goes on and on. Great place to stay and will stay again in the future.

WHY STAY IN A HOTEL WHEN YOU CAN STAY HERE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I planned on a short stay but decided to extend it because were having so much fun. The house is in a perfect location on the river and the neighborhood is quite. If you want to access the gulf you can follow the main road (W Fort Island Trail) to the end, where there is a boat ramp and swimming area or leave from the house dock and head west. The springs were amazing and definitely worth the trip, even if the manatees have moved out. We took our kayak this trip but will bring the boat the next time we visit. We kayaked from the house and a few other locations that we drove to, it is a great place to fish and site see. The house has everything you will need for your stay. It was great to be able to cook our own meals, so we did not have to eat out at all. We even cooked a couple of speckled trout we caught in crystal bay. Like I said earlier, we had a great time and plan on staying here again.

MOTHER DAUGHTER SPRING BREAK GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My 2 best friends and I brought our daughters to this lovely place in Crytal River. It was truly magical. We loved snorkeling with the manatees, kayaking and enjoying the water. The house was spacious and in a great location. We enjoyed the porch over looking the canal and it was very close to the river. The owner was very gracious and quick to respond which is nice. We hope to return sometime soon. The only thing I would suggest if you plan to stay anywhere in this area during the warm season is something that will keep the no-see-ums at bay. They are vicious at sunset unless there is a breeze. Deet didn't seem to work. Some locals suggested Skinsosoft mixed with rubbing alcohol. If anyone knows what works please let me know.

MN SNOWBIRDS

  • 5 of 5
Our goal to get away to the Nature Coast for some warmth and relaxation was well met at this lovely property. The 2 bedroom stilt house was immaculately clean and well appointed. The owner had notes on how to operate everything in the house and a great notebook of places to sightsee, eat, etc.

The ad mentioned that this is a canal-side home with dockage for your boat. I inquired if there were kayaks or a canoe on the property as we did not want to trailer a boat from MN. Dixie found us a canoe and her communication throughout was wonderful! In the end we did not use the canoe as the drop from the dock to the water made it challenging, but her efforts on our request were way above expectations!

This property is a ways from town so most everything involved driving, but it was worth it for the quiet and relaxation.

EVERYTHING WE COULD OF HOPED FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay! We felt at home in your beautiful home! Loved the plaque with our welcome message - such a nice, personal touch! Great location!!! Everything about the place was just what we wanted and needed. Our teenage girls told their Dad that he "did good" when they walked through the place. It takes a lot to please teenagers!!! Would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Thank You!!! BTW- my husband said it was his best birthday ever!

Nearest Beach

Fort Island Trail Gulf Beach

Manatees. Swim and view manatees in world famous Crystal River and Springs. Rent kayaks or boats. Lots of dive gear places and fishing/manatee guides are available. Three Sisters Spring is featured in April 2013 of National Geographic.

A State Archeological Park is directly across the river.

VERY quiet and peaceful. We also recommend Homossa State wildlife park just north of Crystal River. Great fun for anyone!

Small tan stilt home with porch up top on West. (About five houses on the right. It is after blue stilt home.) Park your trailer in the driveway or on the grass across the street directly across from our house. Salt water fishing, diving, and viewing the manatees are popular past times. Scallop season for 2014, is June 1 through September 10.
