Crystal River House Rental Photos and Description
House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to The Chart House! This stunning home is located on a canal in Crystal River with direct gulf access and no bridges. The home is divided into two completely separate luxury units: the Bimini suite (upstairs) & the Key West suite (downstairs). This listing is for the 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom Key West suite that will sleep 2-4 people. It is approximately 10 minutes from King’s Bay and 20 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat. The suite has its own private dock and a fish cleaning area by the water. There are 1,100 square feet of living space downstairs. The unit also offers a full kitchen with all of the amenities. The bedroom features a queen bed, and there are two futons. There is a separate screened-in patio offering a magnificent water view. The suite was completely renovated in June 2009. Linens, towels and paper products are provided for your use. There is a stainless steel gas grill available with plenty of propane to cook up your fresh catch! It contains only brand new, high-quality furniture including Sealy Posturepedic® mattresses and Broyhill® furniture.

In Crystal River, there are plenty of things to do for the whole family, including world-class flats fishing in clear waters for red fish, trout, Spanish mackerel, cobia, and tarpon. Crystal River offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. You can catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock, or look for manatees and dolphins. Offshore, there is terrific shallow and deepwater grouper fishing. Within a short drive, there is a mall with a multiplex movie theater; restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River; kayaking; Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park; Crystal River Archaeological State Park; walking and bike trails; scuba diving; and swimming with the manatees. Plan a day trip to any of the nine state parks within 50 miles or work on your back swing at one of the 12 nearby golf courses. Please feel free to contact us if you any questions or comments.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A 3 MONTH MINIMUM. PLEASE CONTACT US FOR AVAILABILITY AND RATE DETAILS.

Sherri and Doug live in Ocala, a short 45-minute drive to Crystal River. 'We really enjoy the small-town feeling in Crystal River and the natural setting along the beautiful Gulf Coast. Crystal River has the very unique combination of the fresh water bay and springs and the Gulf of Mexico just a short distance away. The Chart House is perfectly situated halfway between the two. You won't find any high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida. Yet Crystal River offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theatres, a mall, unique shops in the historic district, and more. It has it all.'

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

We chose Crystal River because we loved coming here for many years before we could get our own place. It is always a thrill to watch the manatees, dolphins, pelicans, and eagles no matter how many times we have seen them. There is nothing to compare to the fishing and boating in the area, and in the summer, it is one of the last places in Florida where you can catch live scallops. We hope you enjoy the 'Nature Coast' area as much as we do.

Sherri and I have stayed in many fine hotels and luxury vacation rentals over the years. At one point, we started to make a list of our likes and dislikes. We created the Chart House with those ideas in mind. For example, we furnished the house with top-quality beds, mattresses, sheets, comforters, and furniture. And not furniture from a garage sale or thrift store; no, everything is new and in great shape or it is replaced. The kitchen is equipped with all the items you would find in your own kitchen, including quality knives, flatware, appliances, plates, wine glasses, napkins, towels, pots and pans, soap, detergent, and spices — everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer, irons, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We do not want you running to the store; we want you to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. We recently added new decks, gas grills, flat-screen televisions, cable, Wi-Fi, free long distance phone calls, gas cookers, a fire pit, new lighting, free kayaks to use, and new outdoor seating. We have a maintenance team that keeps everything in tip top shape all year long. There is parking for several cars and at least 2 to 3 boat trailers. The backyard is fenced for the safety of your children and dogs. The porches and deck areas are screened with a special fine mesh to keep even the smallest bug out. We pride ourselves in taking care of the tiniest detail and personally inspect the home frequently. You can reach Crystal, our property manager, at 352-622-1825, and she will assist you in any way possible.

We stayed at this beautiful place for a little more than a week, and we really enjoyed it a lot. The house made us feel like we were at home. We the kayaks.
We were glad we decided to stay here rather than staying in a hotel.

We rented this wonderful house over Memorial Day Weekend 2012, both the upstairs & downstairs. The house far exceeded our expectations. The location, furnishing, decor, etc. made us feel like we were in our own home rather than a rental property. The listing description is very accurate, the house is well kept & clean. Access to the river via boat from the house is very easy. We highly recommend the Chart House and look forward to staying there again someday.

Very nice place. Quiet neighborhood. No manatees this time of year but we did get a daily visit from a dolphin making the rounds. Lots of other fish jumping We were in the area property hunting for retirement so did not get to spend a lot of time at the unit, but have no problem highly recommending it.

I wouldn’t want to be locked up in a house during a rain storm anywhere else. The dock is full of cute little crabs and turtles. We caught like 10 a day!

This is an amazing set up and I love all the things that have been done to make this an amazing vacation place. Thank you for making this such a nice place for us to spend time with our friends and family. We had a great weekend. I recommend Crystal River to any family or individual. There were so many manatees and other animals. We had a great time.

Relaxing what a great place

  • Submitted: Jan 19, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2010
Best part was our two dogs could enjoy the yard and not have to be boarded at vet. They are true boating dogs and just want to load up and go. Thank you for being a dog friendly location. We will definitely return. The convenience of the dock was great – a screened porch and grill made this location a real home away from home. This neighborhood is very quiet and conducive to relaxation. Hope to enjoy the home again soon. Rode out to the channel to take photos Thanksgiving night of the sunset
