Idyllic house on the river - don't hesitate to book
We had a wonderful few days at this truly stunning location of a house, literally as per the pictures it is right on the river bend. The friendly host Donna met us at the house and was very informative about the local area and the river itself.
The house itself is immaculately clean and well stocked in the kitchen and bathroom. The six kayaks are an absolute bonus to the house and we enjoyed using them up and down on the river. Though please ensure children or not-so-strong swimmers use the lifejackets provided. My daughter swims competitively but still got a fright at low tide with the strong current.
The River itself is stunningly beautiful. I enjoyed sitting on the riverside at dawn just listening to the wildlife waking up. The Hospital Hole is just around the corner downstream to the house. Up stream is the Weeki Wachee Mermaid water park, a 3hr kayak Donna advised. Otherwise Weeki Wachee is less than 10 mins drive away in the car. We had the pleasure of seeing lots of Manatee up and down the river.
We considered going out to a restaurant for dinner but when you have nature on your veranda then why leave, so we enjoyed dining al fresco with take-away deliveries (good Italian takeaway near the gas station some 5 mins away and Dominoes delivery). We could easily have prepared food in doors if needed though.
All in all a very special few days. My daughter is desperate to return and so are we... Thank You Donna.
My pleasure to have you stay. Hope to see you again. Glad you enjoyed! Thank you.
We've stayed at many places on the river and this was by far the best. The house was clean and stocked with everything you could need. Donna was very welcoming and even had the little Welcome Barfields family sign to greet us. We had the pleasure of watching a manatee feeding on Elephant ears right across the river. We can't wait to book again!!!
Felt like home
Very comfortable for our family and our 2 year old. Great kitchen and decor throughout. This really is a home and not just a house. Loved our stay!
Everything was great in this house plenty of room for 6 people. Definitely enough towels for a week and updated kitchen was a dream. Absolutely loved the decor and themes in the room. We felt very welcome from the owner and she values her house and it shows.
Great location and property.
The property is recently renovated and everything has been updated. It was great being on the river.
We had such a great time. The first day we got there the kids were swimming out in the back yard and a baby manatee and a mama manatee just came right up to them to say hello. Being in the main river allows all day fun. Since my children are born and raised in Florida and constantly being aware of alligators they hate swimming in “dark water” so being on the main river and having that crystal clear water was amazing!!!! Sadly we had to cut our trip short but while we were there enjoyed every second of our stay. The owner went above and beyond with the “personal touches”. Everyone who walked in the door took notice to the personalized welcome sign for our family. We have book with VRBO many times in Crystal River and Homosassa Spring and hands down this is our new favorite spot to get away. We will definitely book this home again.
