About Patti Butler

I live in Orange Park, Florida w/ a beautiful daughter. I'm born & raised Floridian and love the outdoors and water.

Patti Butler purchased this condo in 2006

Why Patti Butler chose Crystal River

I was traveling the state of Florida looking for waterfront property and found a unique little town of Crystal River. One kayak trip to 3 Sister's Springs to swim with the manatees had me hooked for life. I fell in love with the unique and quaint little town. I found my 2nd home!

What makes this condo unique

These units sit directly on a canal that leads into 3 Sister's Springs and it's a very short kayak paddle to the spirngs. I offer coin operated washer & dryer, 2 floating docks for your boat, and new tile floors throughout both units.

an amazing getaway

  • 5 of 5

There are five of us: Dad, mom and children ages 10, 12, 13. Dad and i enoyed the love shack as we called it and they had the other side of the house to themselves. The beds were comfortable, living area- kitchen and living room was spacious and stocked with everything we might have needed and then some- a true home away from home.

We arrived and approximately 15 minutes later, we were in 3 Sisters Springs... A short kayak from the dock and kayaks are included :)

We spent the week kayaking throughout King's Bay and enjoyed many visits with manatee. We figured we would book a tour if unsuccessful on our own, but every morning without fail we ventured out into the bay and saw them, swam with them and were splashed a few good times!

One morning, there was a baby manatee right at the dock in the back yard... A fun surprise and we enjoyed for a couple hours.

There are restaurants in walking distance and trails to hike as well.

Close by is Crystal River Beach and Dans Clam Stand...

We recommend both.

The house was fantastic... Back porch or covered patio... Whatever one calls it is lovely in the evening. We enjoyed fun family dinners that Dad cooked on the grill...

We hope to return... #amazinghomeawayfromhome

We Love the Manatee!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an awesome time at your condo. Your photos accurately reflected the appearance of your rental. We were impressed how clean the condo was!!! We really enjoyed the kayaks and were able to swim with the manatee in 3 Sister Springs. What an awesome experience!!! We also enjoyed having easy access to the sidewalks for walking our dog and for being so close to restaurants and grocery stores. Thank you for sharing your place with us!!!! We will definately return someday.

Awesome scalloping

  • 5 of 5

We came for a short stay in the summer to do some kayaking and scalloping. We had an awesome time and were thrilled to bring the dogs. I would love staying in the well kept efficiency again!

Super close to manatees, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Three Sisters Springs are at other end of this channel, so it's an easy kayak ride of a few minutes. Incredible, beautiful, best Manatee spot in the world. I swam and snorkeled with no wetsuit and it wa fine-- 72 degrees even in Feb. on a day when air temp was only 62. Easy 2-block walk to the Port Hotel & Marina. Sweetbay grocery, Walgreen's, numerous restaurants (Cody's, Clawdaddy's, Thai Phoon, and more) are within 1 mile. Efficiency is just that-- nothing fancy, but it was comfortable for a week away from the cold. Great for 1 or 2 people, maybe a parent with a couple of kids. Bed too small for a couple. You need a car for this location, or you'd have a hard time getting food other than the one restaurant a couple blocks away. If location is your primary criteria-- getting close to the manatees-- this is the place. Mullet jumping in the channel all the time, numerous good-sized largemouth seen from the dock and kayak, easy access to other manatee areas and King's Bay, good fishing available and you won't have to pay for a manatee tour. Good area for going for a walk, too. Found 1 Wifi that I could poach from a neighbor very intermittently. Port Hotel had a spot a couple blocks away that wasn't always on. DQ 2 miles away has free open Wifi 24 hours a day-- from parking lot or a table in the restaurant.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our one month stay. People are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the one bedroom unit which was very clean and well maintained. The town is very pretty with good shopping and the other towns in the area all have interesting sites to see. We enjoyed the kayaking and hiking that is abundant in the area as well. The public beach is not far away and well maintained. We are looking forward to going back.

We enjoyed our stay at the Retreat! Kayaking and fishing each day we saw manatees. Great location close to Three Sisters which is a gem to explore. Thanks for use of the kayak!
