Relaxation at its Best!

Summer is on its way with all it has to offer! Scallop Season starts July 1st and ends Sept 24th 2018. While the Down-Under is not located on the water, we are close by. If you need a place to dock your boat, ask about our free docking in Crystal River. Come on down, enjoy the Down-Under, go home feeling refreshed!

Looking for a quick get away? Are you a Snowbird, we have just the place for you! How about a longer term rental for temp workers? Looking for a bit of nature? Well you found it! Road bike trails, river kayaking, river tubing, visiting manatee, mountain biking (well hills...), just a quiet day at the local springs. They don't call this area the "Nature Coast" for nothing!

Our home is on a very private 2.5 acres with amazing views. Don't be surpised to see a fox trot by, a large owl spying down on you, a bobcat sneeking by or maybe a turkey or two. This is true rural Florida.

The space contains one bedroom, furnished with a queen bed. Living-room has a large sectional sofa and TV. Kitchen is a "kitchenette", small but does what you need it to. Full size fridge and range, microwave, and sink. All you need to enjoy simple meals at home, nice dishes along with basic pots and pans.

If you are visiting friends and family in Citrus Hills, Black Diamond, Beverly Hills, Lecanto or for that matter, anywhere in the county, we make a great meeting spot. We are very centrally located, right in the middle of county.

Many conveniences are close at hand, Walmart is one mile from the house, its a safe 20 minute walk if you chose. Publix is 2.5 miles to the east. Within walking distance is a McDonalds; a mom/pop burger spot; a sushi restaurant that also serves traditional Japanese, Thai, and Chinese; a Wendy's, a small park and multi-use paved bike trail.

The apartment is below our main home. You have a separate entrance and total privacy. That's why its called the "Down Under"!

                                                              Very cozy and away from the beaten path and yet not far from stores, restaurants ,golf, the beach.

                                                              Attention to Details

                                                              We knew we had chosen the perfect spot for our stay with all the attention to details. It started way before we entered the property with Linda's prompt responses to questions I asked. Next were the detailed directions that were easy to follow. It continued when we arrived to find breakfast food to get us started the next morning and items in the bathroom that we might have forgotten. We met Linda the third morning we were here. She wanted to know what else we needed, including ideas of activities, directions, anything in the Treehouse. Her primary goal was to assist us in having the best vacation!

                                                              The location is perfect with quick access to many of the local towns. It is clean, comfy, and roomy. It felt like home to us.

                                                              The final attention to detail was on the morning we left. It was Valentine's Day. We found a special treat on our car. Tim and Linda didn't miss any opportunity to make this one special vacation! We would not hesitate to rent from them again.

                                                              The apartment was as beautiful as the pjctures.

                                                              Down-Under was quiet and very relaxing. Was located the area we wanted to be in. Nice amount of room for 2 of us.

                                                              Tim and Linda are wonderful people. They invited me out to kayak to Three sisters springs Enjoyed it so much. The house had everything needed. Really enjoyed the hanging swing on the patio. She went over and beyond expectations. Can't wait to go back.

                                                              Becca was a joy to have, the visit was too short. Please come back next time you are in the states.

                                                              May your mission trips bring the joy of your smile to those in need.

                                                              Thanks for staying with us!

                                                              I stayed here for about 3 months for a job, and I didn't want to leave! Extremely homey and warm (just like something straight out of HGTV). Linda and Tim are such wonderful people! They were always there to help whether it was a recommendation for the best river to kayak on or the best restaurants in town! I would give the TreeHouse an 11/10. Thank you, Linda and Tim :)
