About the property

Swim with manatees, go fishing, or enjoy a gorgeous sunset over the bay!

This wonderful home can accommodate approximately 9 guests, which makes it a great option for family vacations. (We apologize, but due to severe allergies in our family, we do not allow pets of any kind in the home. Thank you for understanding!)

The possibilities are endless when you take your vacation here! Relax by our private pool, enjoy a gorgeous sunset from the large screen porch, visit the quaint Fort Island Gulf Beach, swim with manatees, or take a boat out to fresh or saltwater for fishing, scalloping, snorkeling, scuba diving, sight seeing, or out to eat at one of Crystal River's fabulous waterfront restaurants.

The home is located on a deep water lagoon near King's Bay, which makes it a great choice for larger boats. Several public boat ramps are located near the home and are available for your use at no charge. The lagoon is not only great for boats, but is also a popular swimming place for manatees and dolphin!

We offer discounts for rentals 3 months or longer. Great for snow birds! Please call or email for details.

About Kristen Cole

We are a family from Leesburg, Florida, which is located approximately an hour from this rental home in Crystal River. We love to take our boat out fishing and scalloping as much as possible. We have been vacationing in Crystal River for many years, and we decided to purchase the home because we enjoyed our vacations there so much!

Kristen Cole purchased this house in 2010

Why Kristen Cole chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

After considering several different homes in the Crystal River area, we fell in love with this one! The location and size were perfect for us. After purchasing the home, we made a few renovations, like adding a breakfast bar, to make the house feel more open and up-to-date.

What makes this house unique

Because the house is located on a deep water lagoon, it is great for all kinds of boats. We also love the pool and the large screen porch. It's great for entertaining!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Location was perfect! We tied our kayaks to the dock and swam with the manatees everyday. The house had plenty of sheets, towels and kitchenware. The pool and lanai were perfect for outdoor entertaining. The living room furniture was a bit worn but we spent the majority of our time outside. It was a lovely week in a cozy home! We will be back! Thank you!

1030 N Palm Springs Terrace, Crystal River, Florida

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for three months. It was so quiet and peaceful being on the canal. We were able to enjoy seeing many manatees, dolphins, a variety of Florida birds and even an alligator right from our dock! The house was equipped with everything we needed and if we had any questions Kristen was available to answer them for us. We enjoyed our stay soo much that we intend to return again. Great place to stay and go out on King's Bay and see all the beautiful homes and local sights.

SUPER TIME - What a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at this home. When we arrived the previously shared instructions were right on and there was no confusion entering (or departing) the home. The home itself was clean, spacious and we had ample kitchenware to prepare meals and store leftovers as well as linens for the beds. And what a beautiful view! We were right there on the water and you could see the various pontoon boats, kayaks, paddleboards as they passed by the home. The dock was hard to get back on after diving in - but we managed. The pool was certainly a bonus - it was well-kept and the required chemicals were not excessive. The soft lights surrounding the pool area made for beautiful nights. The neighborhood was quiet and there no disturbances of any kind. Fearful that the owners might find SOMETHING to penalize us with the deposit, that was not the case as the entire damage deposit was refunded. So you can add integrity to the qualities inherent in renting this home. I would highly recommend this Home-Away to anyone without reservation ... it was a delight. Thank you for a super time!

Unsatisfied customer

  • 3 of 5

The house was an 80's style with some updates ..... The carpets are badly worn and mildewed..... The large dose of carpet perfume did not resolve the issue....A deep cleaning is in order..

This is the first property we have stayed that required us to do the dishes , put them up, wash the towels, fold and return to storage . Take out the garbage, and make sure to put the dumpster on the curb ..strip the beds.... THEN, charge a 125.00 cleaning fee......threatening to keep deposit of 500.00 if we didn't clean up the house...

The property is situated in a cute neighborhood with pier and access to the river.... There is a pool that we would have played in if it had been heated.... water was freezing....Lastly as we drove away, at 10:00 am .. What we felt as early, but again complying to "her" rules for fear of losing deposit......we won't be returning to this house....

Owner's Response: Danny, I am sorry we were unable to give you a five-star experience. I wish you would have contacted me if you were unsatisfied with the house when you arrived. I cannot correct any issues you may have unless I am notified. The carpet in the house is less than a year old, however, I will discuss the cleaning methods with housekeeping to ensure it is being properly maintained. As stated in the rental agreement, and posted in the house, you may leave a load of towels for housekeeping. Unfortunately, we need time to get the house ready for the next guest after you check out, which is impossible if housekeeping has mounds of laundry, a pile of dirty dishes, and overflowing trash cans. We do appreciate you picking up after yourself, however, we do not expect the house to be spotless. That is why we have housekeeping. The deposit is not retained unless there is damage to the house or it is extremely dirty and requires an excessive amount of time, like more than 4 hours, to clean. If there is not anyone checking out immediately before you, or checking in immediately after you, an early check-in and/or late check-out can usually be accommodated. Had you contacted me and asked for a late check-out, it could have been arranged at no cost. I do appreciate your feedback, and I hope you will give the house another chance.

Chillaxing holiday with friends

  • 5 of 5

We shared a house with our Australian friends and found the location very relaxing. Plenty of facilities at the house, only wish there had been a kettle, as us British and Australians like a nice cup of hot tea (something you can't get in the US). Neighbours were really friendly and we felt at home quickly.

The Plantation Inn and Resort is just a five-minute drive or boat ride away, where a great golf course, spa, restaurant, and tiki bar are located. If you prefer more adventure, take a short boat ride to take advantage of great snorkeling and diving opportunities with manatees and other wildlife at King's Spring or one of many other springs in the area. Both saltwater and freshwater fishing are also only a few minutes away. There are many restaurants and bars in the area as well. We recommend Fat Boy's BBQ Restaurant, Cody's Steakhouse, and Cracker's Bar & Grill, which is located on the water. There are also several chain restaurants nearby, including Chili's Bar & Grill and Applebee's.
