Review #11936079 “Paradise on the Halls River ”

This house was everything we could of asked for in a nice quiet weekend away. Use of the two kayaks was wonderful to explore the beautiful and quiet Halls River. The home had everything you would need, you really only need to bring your toothbrush! We will definitely return!

Awesome house with a great view. We used the kayaks daily. Fished from the dock. Convenient to everything. Only complaint would be the beds. They are awful. BUT even with those beds we would return, we didn't wanna leave!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review. The owners feel the same way about the peace on the Halls River. It is a unique location and we are so glad you were able to relax and enjoy the ambiance of the old Florida feel.

Excellent place

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here before, absolutely love this place. Plenty of room for 4 people (two bathrooms with showers) , spotless , home away from home feel, 3 min to supermarket, 10 min to Bird's Underwater Dive Center (perfect for doing early morning Manatee trip),

quiet , right on water.

We did encounter a small issue when we first arrived but the owner took care of it promptly and was more than fair. We loved seeing the Manatee right out our back door and enjoyed the kayaks. The house was very comfortable and well laid out. Thanks for sharing your home.

A nice weekend

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for Labor Day weekend, and had a nice time. The website photos could use a little updating (foosball table isn't there, home is a different color, some of the furniture is different). Overall we had a nice time, home is centralized between Crystal River and Homosassa activites.

Couple of minor disappointments, though; nobody representing the owner stopped by, or even called to check on us (someone has checked at every other property we've rented), and they forgot to stock toilet paper (ran out midway through 2nd day). There were plenty of towels, pillows, bedding supplies.

Our young girls LOVED going kayaking - saw fish, crabs, birds, rays; a really nice perk to the house. Overall it was a nice weekend, with just a couple of minor improvements to make it perfect.

Owner's Response: Our website does need updating as far as photos go, although the house is the same color, blue. The fooseball table was destroyed by Florida moisture and we decided to replace it with a ping-pong table, which was put in the house last week. Sorry about that. The toliet paper is a huge OOPS on the part of our cleaning lady who has worked for us for 9 years. She is very good, but that was a mistake, again our apologies about that. We do not usually contact our renters as we have two houses and too many people who come and go on a 2 – 3 night basis all year round. We do have the our personal home, cell, and business number printed on the directions that we give to our customers when they come to check in at the dive shop, and we tell them to call if there are any issues. Sometimes people come in after business hours and we have to give them directions and the lock box number to the house over the phone. We prefer not to do this, because we cannot touch base with them, but that is their choice and we do offer them the convenience of coming in at any time. We are happy that overall you enjoyed it and did use the kayaks. The home is in a lovely area with lots of nature and during the winter months you will also see manatees coming into the river. Thank you for taking the time to write the review and we hope to see you again in the future.
