We think you'll love our home! Be sure to click on video for a little better look. Located on a deep-water canal just 6 lots in from the main river, we are half way between Shell Island/Gulf and Kings Bay/Three Sisters Springs. Keep a look out for manatees or dolphins while eating your Cheerios! Our bar height dining table gives a great view of the canal and makes every meal a potential adventure.
Having 2 King beds and 1 Queen bed, with flat screen TVs in all 3 bedrooms, this house comfortably sleeps 6 adults. No fold out sofas or bunk beds. The bathrooms have just been remodeled. Master bath has tub/shower and the other is a walk-in shower. The kitchen is spacious and fully stocked with everything we think you will need during your stay. We especially like the dining room / game room overlooking the canal. The poker table top can be flipped for smooth surface or removed to play bumper pool! 55 inch TV plus the great view of the water makes this room the star of the house!
The screened porch also has a great view of the water and shade from the large oak tree keeps the temperature down in the afternoon. Cook up your fresh catch on the gas grill on the back deck.
Location makes this house a dream! You are right in the middle of everything by car or by boat. By car you are 1 mile from free boat launch and just a bit more to Twin Rivers Marina. 4 miles gets you to the beach and some spectacular sunsets! 4 miles the opposite direction gets you to Plantation Golf Course, grocery store, resturaunts and the rest of civilization. By boat you are just 6 houses in from the Crystal River and the begining of your adventures! 15-20 minutes to Shell Island and then on to fishing or scalloping. And it takes even less time to get you back to Kings Bay. Take a dip at Hunters Springs. Snorkle or dive the main spring in Kings Bay. Tie up at Crackers or Margarita Breeze for lunch, dinner or just a cocktail on the water!
If weather keeps you indoors, we have puzzles, games and books in addition to the poker/bumper-pool table. The screened porch is roofed so you can still be outside if you want to watch and hear the rain. Nice day but just feeling lazy? Jump in the hammock and relax! Not lazy? Hop in one of our 4 kayaks and explore nature up close and personal! Fish or catch crabs off our 50' dock. We are sure that you will be delighted with all this house has to offer!

This home has it all..location was great, we had the boat, quick trip to the gulf. The house had everything we needed and more. The fenced yard made it fun for the pups and worry free for us. Crystal River had food, shops and river watching. Highly recommend
Had everything we needed!
It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. I highly recommend. Make sure to bring skin so soft for the no see ums!
Very impressed. We stayed two weeks and had a great time.
We had a great stay at this VRBO on the Crystal River. We could sit in the dining area or screened in porch and watch our boat on the water. Access to the map. Part of the river was easy. We took the time to see the sunsets out at the beach and even had a sea otter lope across the road in front of us as we drove out.
The landlord were very accommodating and the home was furnished with very nice linings and towels. Can’t think of anything more that we needed.

This property owner goes above and beyond to make our stay comfortable.
My husband and I were looking for a different Florida experience and chose Crystal River. The property is situated on a canal close to King’s Bay so we were able to rent a pontoon boat and keep it at the property. We had so much fun watching wildlife and touring the area during the day, then returning to the comfortable screened in porch to relax and enjoy the quiet evenings. Our dogs were also a big part of our trip and the property was very dog friendly. The house was very clean, comfortable and very well stocked. We would definitely recommend this property to someone considering a stay in Crystal River and we look forward to our return.
Had it All!
The name of the house says it all! We have been coming to Crystal River for about 10 years and this is definitely one of the better rentals for the money spent. My biggest complaint in every other rental is always the comfort of the furniture, not that we spend a lot of time inside, but when you do you want to be comfortable. I'm happy to report that the furniture was very comfortable! The house is stocked with everything you could need for your stay. The kitchen is very well supplied with every pot, glass, dish, or spoon you can think of, so much so that we had to stack up some to make room in a cupboard for our groceries :) but we managed. Coming from Northern Michigan in the middle of February it was delightful to have our meals in the screened room and with the kitchen so well supplied we didn't have to eat out and were able to enjoy more time on the water.
We kayaked every day and saw manatees, dolphins, turtles, and lots of fish. My only hesitation with this rental is that if you are not an experienced paddler the boat traffic first thing in the morning and then again in the late afternoon is quite heavy on the river and it is not a slow no wake zone so use caution. We paddled to the mullet hole in the State Park and also in the other direction into Kings Bay and up to Three Sisters Springs and loved every minute of it.
Best home away from home
We are already planning our next trip back. Jim and Wealthy think of everything, from coffee and creamer, shampoo and body wash, games, readers and sunglasses if you forgot them to paper products. So many personal touches you feel like your home. The place is so clean, beds comfy, plenty of room. Had a blast on the river with their kayaks and loved the fire pit at night. The neighbor was very friendly and kind too. Loved the screened in porch on the rainy day we had.
They were easily accessible when I had a question about the kayaks. And we love that there aren’t keys but a key pad where you pick the numbers before you arrive. Made it so much easier with us coming and going at different times.
It was a short drive to anything we wanted. 5 mins to grocery store, 10 mins to 3 Sisters Sanctuary, beach, manatee snorkeling. 15 mins to Homasassa Springs. If you want an enjoyable, worry free vacation, don’t waste your time looking anywhere else.
It was amazing. Our only complaint is we don’t want to go home!!
