About Patty Beaty
My husband and I are Tennessee Natives with a Love for the Florida Lifestyle and this Fabulous Nature Coast. We happened upon Crystal River while camping and Riding Horses. Never knew Florida could be so much fun with so much to do. We are excited to get to share our little piece of heaven with the world. Planning ahead for our retirement we bought our first vacation rental in September of 2017. We have been thrilled with the support we are getting to share our home. We think it's special and are so thankful others do too. Thank you to all upcoming and past guests for helping us share our little piece of paradise with the world.
Patty Beaty purchased this House in 2017
Why Patty Beaty chose Crystal Shores
We absolutely Love this little "hidden gem" of an area located in Florida. This huge house is located right in the heart of surrounding activities to make your vacation the best it can be. It is in a safe/upscale neighborhood surrounded by multi million dollar homes. We first vacationed in this area because of the State Forests and warm winter weather for camping and horseback riding with our horses. The area is surrounded by 7 different bodies of water. It has numerous Nature Trails and Beautiful Florida scenery. From the many gorgeous Palms to the breath taking Live Oaks with Spanish Moss there is no place prettier to be "one" with nature. Once here we began to discover all the other amazing things this location has to offer. The natural springs are some of the most gorgeous you will ever see. This home is right in the center of all of it. How heartwarming to see dolphin and manatee in your backyard. You can paddleboard, kayak, boat, fish. The fun never ends! Our friends who visit for the first time are amazed. They thought Florida was just going to the beach and driving in heavy traffic. Going to restaurants and waiting in long lines that serve mass produced food/overpriced. But..... OH NO!!!! It's so much better in Crystal River!!! We love the local fresh seafood and small family owned restaurants. Ease of getting to your destinations. The beauty of this nature coast. I don't think there is a better place to enjoy your time once you discover it too. This house has the space to do all of these things and be comfortable with your family and friends while here.

5 star house, 5 star location and 5 star hostess! Perfection! We loved everything so much we have already booked for next year.
Let me add 5 Star Guests! Thank you all for taking such great care of our home. Happy you are returning next year.
One of the best vacation properties we have stayed at
Location, location, very clean, well stocked, lots of toys for everyone and one very nice owner.
Thank you to all your family for staying at our home for your get together. We are blessed to have such fantastic renters.
Big house, lots of sleeping options. Glad we chose to stay there. Great for family and friends. Close to everything in Crystal River and very quiet neighborhood.
Thanks for staying at our home. We appreciate having great renters like your family choose our house.
Great place for a large group.
The house was perfect for our large group. It was spotless clean and thoughtfully well decorated. The kitchen is well appointed with modern appliances and all the cooking gear you might need. The Florida/Game room just off the pool was a very popular place during the rainy days. In the dining room many meals and more than a few late night card games took place around the large table. It made for a comfortable central gathering place. One very nice touch, and this is from experience renting large houses, were the labels on all the cabinets and light switches. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is oh so helpful for a short term rental. The screened pool deck is large and inviting and the pool temp was just right. Out at the dock we were able to moor 3 boats with a little creativity around the boat lift area. The vertical tide movement is quite substantial so adjust your dock lines accordingly. Check in and communications were easy through the VRBO App. We appreciated the keyless combination door locks on the primary entrance. This allows for easy access with no lost keys. We have stayed in numerous properties of varying description in the area and this one is definitely top 5 in our book. All in all and 5 star property, and we are already talking about next year.
Your gracious review is appreciated very much. We do try to make your stay as "home like" as possible. The labels were put on to ease the frustration of trying to locate things while cooking and then again after clean up when putting it all away. You were awesome guests to have in our home and we hope you choose to return again in the future. Thank you again.
Could not ask for more
We have stayed in crystal river for scalloping for the last 4 years at different homes. This home beats them all. It is amazing, clean, fully stocked and in an effortless location to get to the scalloping grounds. My family and friends had the greatest time on the boat scalloping as well as back at the ho house playing pool, swimming, playing corn home and kayaking. If you book you will not be disappointed.
Thank you so much. I hope you do return next year. Book soon because the house is filling up quickly. We work hard to make it special and love it when people enjoy their stay.
We chose this home for its large size (5 bedrooms), location (has a dock) and based on reviews (all excellent). We were not disappointed.
Rented for 4 couples (ages 40-60).
From our initial contact with the home owner Patty, who responded immediately to questions and checked in with us daily to the incredible home she meticulously maintains, we were never disappointed. There is nothing to add that hasn’t already been written about this beautiful home.
I guess the most resounding review of how much we loved this property is to say..... we have already rented it again for next year.
Thank you Patty for an awesome stay!

Thank you so much. We are thrilled your group is coming again next year. What a pleasure to have such amazing guests.
