About Constance Cartwright

I am a business owner in Ft Myers, Fl. I went to school & College in Florida. I am married with 2 adult children & 2 grandchildren. We truly love the beautiful Crystal River area.

Why Constance Cartwright chose Crystal Shores

I have always been a resident of SW Florida. I discovered scalloping a few years ago. I decided to buy a family vacation home & rent it to others who love Florida & scalloping. Please come & stay at our family's vacation home on the beautiful Crystal River.

What makes this house unique

It was our hope to find a single family home on Crystal River. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. I know you will too. It's got a wonderful back yard & boat docks & the canal goes directly to the river where you can fish & scallop to your heart's content. Please come & see this lovely home you will enjoy your stay.

Has an awesome time for lots of big scallops and great family time!

  • 4 of 5

The house was really nice as well as the canal for the boat. Only complaint my wife had is the bed in the master was a little lumpy and we couldn't turn the a.c. below 75. Other than that we had a great stay and it is a great location to get out on the water and pretty close to grocery store.

Lovely home in the perfect location in Crystal River!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our weekend getaway, clean and spacious with all the amenities, a huge yard and direct water access. There are two boat docks and the access to the river is almost immediate; not a long drive at idle speed down multiple canals. The owner was wonderful and responded right away to any questions. Be sure to doublecheck the address with Constance as it was listed incorrectly in the HomeAway app. We look forward to returning to this home again!!

Great house for fisherman

  • 5 of 5

Had a out of town fishing tournament last week of April. Stayed at the Canal house and it is the perfect location and set up for fishing. Canal was deep enough at low tide and plenty of dock space to tie up three boats. Lots of parking for trucks and trailers and plenty of room to clean up boats at end of the day. Everything is there to stay comfortable and we only brought food. Will stay here again next year

Outstanding place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect for a family and the location is great! House was clean and had everything we needed. You could tell there was recent work done on the house and looks like some still in the process, but nothing that stops a great time! Really love the house and the beds are comfortable, large open concept, and just completely comfortable. We will be back and will be checking into staying here again!

We would be so glad to have you back...Hot tub filled in and secondary dock will be repaired this month. Hope to see you next year, you were the perfect guests.. Constance

Dirty, poorly maintained and poor response

  • 1 of 5

We arrived on Saturday. My parents arrived first and couldn't get the glitchy lock to unlock. They called Pam the property manager who NEVER called back. When I arrived, I saw that the landscape was overgrown, the patio chair was broken and turned over and the garbage can was overflowing from the last tenant. Inside, many of the overhead lights and none of the fans worked. There wer table lamps in the bedrooms but the bathroom was pitch black. The toilets and bathtubs were slow to drain out but the worst was that the tub was full of soap scum and someone else's hair. The hot tub was a mess with a collapsed cover. We had problems with the tv also. The owner responded to my email with h a quip about did I realize the bedrooms had table lamps. She later said someone would come to look at the bathroom light. He came at five o'clock Monday we left at 7am Tuesday. He did manage to get the lights on in the bathroom but he said the house had been flooded and was being repaired. They had not yet figured out the electrical issues. It also explains the poor drainage as they had electrical issues with the septic pump. It also explains why the owner was so unresponsive. She clearly knew the house wasn't ready to be rented. I was embarrassed as I had planned this trip for my mother's birthday. An apology and the offer of a discount would have gone a long way.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry. I didn't realize Pam was called and did not response. If I sounded unconcerned. I wasn't. The house was supposed to be ready to rent. We had it totally gutted and rebuilt. I have no idea what Mike meant. When I called him he called back said he was at the house before dark the same day you had let me know. He found a popped breaker and flipped it back... That happens to any house.. There are no electrical problems. The house was rewired by a Florida licensed electrician..I was aware of the hot tub and it's inline to be removed. I had Mike cover it with plywood so it hopefully​ is not an eyesore. I would've been glad to work with you on the money. I'm having the lawn worked on. I had a regular guy. I haven't heard from him and tried to call him, he hasn't contacted me but I got someone for this weekend. I've only had one other complaint but there was no legitimacy to her complaint..I had text through their entire stay where she "loved" the house... I feel you're sincere and I am apologizing and I will email you... Constance
