Fresh water and electricity is available at the boatlift. The back yard is fenced. Our minpin puppies play back there often.
The screen-enclosed heated saltwater pool has a misting system that lowers the temp at the sunbathing end of the pool in Summer, and a pool heater that warms the water to your chosen temp in the Winter.

You can also catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock.

There is a large storage shed in the backyard to store water toys and fishing equipment.

Beautiful and peaceful Crystal River has activities for the whole family and offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. With all of the spring fed rivers and miles of mangroves Crystal River has the best Scalloping grounds in the US. Some of the best scalloping action is usually in 4-6 ft of water around Gomez Rocks at Latitude 2829.8, Longitude 8243.7. Offshore, there is shallow and deep water fishing.
The nearby mall has a multiplex movie theater, restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River. The house is only a short walk or bicycle ride from the Crystal River State Park Reserve and the Mullet Hole fishing spot. There are nine beautiful state parks nearby or play golf at one of the many nearby golf courses. Your family will make wonderful vacation memories here.
You can rent at a very affordable rate by the week.

The Wade family lives in Marietta, GA. about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. We vacationed in Crystal River rental homes for years before finally buying a vacation home here. We wanted a home in the family-friendly north end of Crystal River and our house is perfectly situated for what we were looking for. We considered Panama City Beach as a vacation home location and vacationed there often while making the decision between CR and PCB. We decided we like the nature coast best because there are no high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida, but Crystal River still offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theaters, a mall, quaint shops in the historic district, and more. It has everything we were looking for in a family friendly neighborhood.
Chuck Wade purchased this house in 2014
We chose Crystal River because it is so much more quiet and peaceful than other places we vacationed. We also enjoy watching the manatees and other wildlife from our sunroom and pool area. Our dream was to watch the manatee while enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. We also love the fishing and boating in the area, and being certified scuba divers our entire family likes diving and snorkeling the natural springs in and around the area.
After staying at dozens of different vacation rental homes we stopped and made a list of all the things we liked, and didn’t like. We picked this house with all of that in mind. We furnished the house with brand new furniture; all very good quality beds, mattresses, sheets and comforters. But the home is not cluttered like so many of the rental homes we stayed in. 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, iron, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We want your family to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. You can reach us at (404) 374-8523 to book one of the best vacations your family will ever have.
We had a great time! The location is perfect. Our boat had plenty of room in the deep canal and it was a short ride to fish and scallop. The yard is spacious and the added toys are bonus. The house was clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back!
Even though it rained half of our mini vacation, we really enjoyed this house. The location is great, the house is immaculate, the beds are super comfy, pool was great and the owner is very accommodating. We didn't use the kayaks or paddleboards because of the weather, but they are there to use! We did go on a bike ride with the bikes provided in the garage. We are looking forward to renting this house for next summer. Hopefully the weather is better. This property gets five stars all the way around! Thank you Chuck!
This is our second year to rent this home. The kitchen and baths are stocked with all of the supplies you need. Beds are very comfortable. Our family enjoys the pool and there is plenty of room to dock our boats. Our extended family also rented one of Chuck's homes. We plan our stay annually for our family reunion and have a great time scalloping and spending time with each other. Chuck and Staci are great owners. Looking forward to coming back next summer.
Our three generational family enjoyed this wonderful home for our scalloping adventure. Exactly as described and more! Quiet & convenient location, wonderful amenities and tasteful furnishings. Chuck Wade is a gracious host and resolved our modem issue very quickly. The pool was well used and enjoyed by everyone at the end of the day. Great memories!
We have been coming to Crystal River for years. However, this was the first year renting this property and we've already booked again for next year, and will continue to rent for years to come. Everything we could possibly have wanted was available to us. The home was clean, well kept and there wasn't anything we could have thought of that was not included. We loved having the boat lift, easy access to the gulf for scalloping and the pool to come back to at the end of the day. Chuck and Staci were actually in Crystal River during our stay and we were able to meet them. What a wonderful, friendly couple and totally accessible and available to answer any questions we had. My entire family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we hated to have to leave!
Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay! We specifically went for the scalloping and fishing, perfect location as you are in some "back waters" so you don't have boats constantly running wide open by you! Very easy to access the Gulf for scalloping and fishing. The pool was perfect for the girls to stay back and hang out while we were on the water not to mention the shops they went and found that aren't far from the house either. Can't say enough about how nice the owners are, I was in contact with Mr.Wade more than once and he was more than happy to share any information I needed/wanted to make our stay perfect! While we were there he made sure anything and everything we needed we had! We've rented houses on the west coast in the past and have never felt this "at home"! We will for sure be back!!
There is so much to do in Crystal River. It is a family-friendly, nature focused, beautiful, peaceful area. If you enjoy kayaking you are welcome to use our 4 Kayaks w/ paddles & rod holders. You can also rent kayaks at Crystal River Watersports just minutes from the house. Kayaking and kayak fishing in the canal, the river and in Ozello is relaxing and fun! Feel free to use our 2 Sun bikes to ride all over Crystal River. The town is designed for bicycle-riding.
