About Chris Falls

I am from Scottsdale, Arizona, and have been vacationing in this area for over ten years. One of the reasons I enjoy this area so much is its friendly, laid back feeling, and to be on the ocean is truly amazing.

Chris Falls purchased this house in 2010

Why Chris Falls chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I had searched for over 8 years up and down the coast looking for a true ocean front property with total privacy. This home is truly unique with ocean front views from every room. There is a third floor master balcony with its own private deck. You have the best of both worlds of having privacy but also being close to golfing, restaurants, shopping, casinos, theme parks, and famous beaches.

What makes this house unique

If you enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking and beautiful sunsets, you will love this home. Seeing dolphins and marine life in the backyard is a daily ocurrence. Close to everything, but not the traffic and noise. This home has an elevator that services all three levels. There is a game room on this first floor with a ping pong table and billards table. Use of a canoe is included in the rental.

Spotless Rental with Unbeatable Views

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an 8 day stay at Chris' vacation home in Aripeka, FL. Everything was as perfect as it could be. We have not stayed in a rental home this clean before. We did not find one thing out of place and even the dishes and cutlery were spotless. The home is well appointed with everything you will need, including an elevator. Highly recommended for families or those just wanting a quiet out of the way retreat with perfect ocean views from three sides. Fantastic sunsets, good fishing right off the dock. Ray helps to take care of the house and lives down the road. He was great in working with the kids to help them catch fish and got us off to a good start. Owner was easy to access and quick to respond. We would have no reservations about staying here again.

piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

great vacation house. Chris is nice to deal with and Ray was a great help with any fishing or boating questions. Saw dolphins everyday , saw 3 manatees on Friday. The house is well maintain and equipped. Get up in the mornings and look out at the blue waters of the gulf, the evening sunsets are picture perfect and different each night. Yep, this is a piece of paradise. Thanks Chris for allowing us to enjoy it. Dean and family

We loved this place! It was the best vacation place we have ever had. Our kids (19, 17, 15, & 8). Didn't even ask to go anywhere else. We saw dolphins every morning at 7:00. They would get up early just to canoe (6:00) fish and swim. Very unusual for my kids they like to sleep but not here. There's also a little store that we liked very well. Very nice people. At the end of the road turn right cross bridge and there it is. Loved every bit of it. Sunset are beautiful.

Superb - the best house we have ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 10 days and it is as good as all the reviews say. The house is very well equipped, clean, well maintained and is in a wonderful position being surrounded on three sides by the sea with great views and spectacular sunsets. We were hopeful that we may see a dolphin or two during our stay but we saw them every day including a mother and calf swimming and hunting fish within a few feet of the dock. We also had a group of four manatee stay for hours about 10 feet away from the side of the house and watched osprey dive for fish in the bay. It was unbelievable!

Dealing with the owner, Chris was easy and trouble free. Ray looked after the house, lives close by, was helpful and a really good guy to chat to. He gave us tips on local restaurants and places to visit.

The neighbours were friendly and, although the location is very peaceful and secluded there are loads of restaurants, supermarkets etc only 5 minutes drive away. It is handy for Tampa and Busch gardens.

We stayed at the house with two children aged 17 and 12 (so not easily impressed!) and they have both said that this is the best place we have ever stayed. It really is that good!

The Greatest House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely gorgeous! There couldn't be anything better! I was there with my sister, her husband, their children 12 and 14 and my son (8). Everyday we saw dolphins, sometimes they came very close to the dock, sometimes we took the canoe to follow them and they were so curious that they stayed there over two hours. What we also saw many times were rays and crabs and once we saw a shark. The house is so great that you don't have to do many things. We were once in Crystal River by River Ventura to swim with manatees, that was great, too.

But every evening we stayed at home to see the beautiful and never the same, sunset.

The house was clean and everything worked. Ray is the one who cares about the house. You can ask him whatever you want and he helps you always.

And of course, we come back, so soon as possible!

Private Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

When you walk inside and see the luring gulf waters whispering Heaven to you, you will know just how perfect of a vacation spot you have found. The open water views from all angles inside the home welcome you and seem to envelope your entire being. Kinda have to pinch yourself, to make sure it is real! Thank you Chris, for sharing this piece of heaven with others!
