Crystal River

  • 4 of 5

Though the house was clean and neat and very well stocked, it really needs to be updated. The walls are dark paneling, making the entire inside dark. The low wattage light bulbs make it even more dark. A coat of a light color paint would improve the appearance a lot.The renter also needs to be aware that even though you are on the water, you may not be able to drive a boat in or out to Crystal River or the Gulf. The tides are not always cooperative. We ended up trailering our boat to the marina. And be sure you have lots of insect repellant. The noseeums in this area are vicious. My husband received 50 plus bites in one afternoon. Tides and bugs are no fault of the owner, of course, but something you need to be aware of. Overall, we enjoyed the area immensely and with a few updates, would consider this rental again.

Winter's Relief in Crystal River

  • 5 of 5

3th stay in this house was wonderful! We spent 7-weeks in this 2-bedroom house and had a wonderful time. Peaceful, quiet, close to all types of restaurants, entertainment, bike and walking trails, etc. This was our third visit because we enjoy the area so much and know we won't be disappointed. If you are looking for a unique area to stay in this part of Florida I recommend staying at this property. Close to the beach, park is located across the street as well as the marina, and plenty of walkable streets. Every time we visit Crystal River we find something different to explore.

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our Easter holiday at this well-equipped, secluded home right on the water. We took a small boat with us and enjoyed launching it from the private dock and paddling around in the open water. The seclusion of the home offered an easy way to take our dogs for a walk each morning, and it also gave us just the right amount of privacy from other vacationers. We felt like we were in our own little part of the world, but with easy access to restaurants, the beach at the end of Fort Island trail, boat launches, Three Sisters Springs, and everything else that Crystal River has to offer. The owner was very easy to work with and very accommodating, and the neighbors make you feel welcome. We can't wait to go back again in June and rent the same place!

Perfect for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, beautiful location (assuming peace and quiet is your thing). The owner is extremely gracious and accommodating. Crystal River is mainly known for Kings Bay, which is great, but there is also a nice beach at the end of Fort Island Trail. And look for the Russian lady selling quarts of local honey from a card table a couple of miles east on Venable at 7 Rivers.

Wonderful time at Crystal River

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time using VRBO to secure housing for a holiday. We were looking for accomodations in a nature setting and this house met our needs. The owner could not have been more accomodating in every aspect. The area is just lovely - very quiet yet close to town and attractions. We like to bicycle and walk daily and there are several trails close by. Our cat was included in this trip and the back screened in porch became her domain daily. Kitchen was well stocked with items. We have rebooked for 2012!

Crystal River home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Crystal River. What a great location!!! We like quiet and serenity and this place was made for that. We did lots of canoeing in the area, and snorkeling with the manatee and at the various springs in the area - but the highlight was always to come home and sit on that wonderful balcony overlooking the marsh. I loved sitting there with a book - or watching the sunrise. We saw an otter one day, and some dolphins paid a visit another day - plus the unending stream of birds. The road to the beach was quiet enough for frequent biking or running. In short, it was one of our most enjoyable vacations - we plan on getting in touch with you next year for another visit!
