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' 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 River

We absolutely Love this little "hidden gem" of an area located in Florida. This 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 with Nature Trails and Beautiful Florida scenery. From the many gorgeous Palms to the breath taking Live Oaks there is no place prettier to be "one" with nature. After 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. 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.

What makes this house unique

Huge Home that truly has beds and space for 12 people. 5 bedrooms and a futon. No Blow Up mattresses. No bunk beds. Two King Beds, Three Queen Beds and One Futon. 4 Full Bathrooms. Great choice for multi family vacations and family reunions. The house is centrally located to all activities in the Crystal River Area. House is divided up so guests don't feel cramped and crowded. Space for everyone to be together or do lots of individual things. Main Chanel is One home away and NO Bridges to Gulf or Kings Bay. Not a better set up in Crystal River for large groups and area activities. We were home to National Geographic employees while working on a manatee project recently here in Crystal River. Come and Stay and See for Yourself.

Great for families

  • 4 of 5

Large comfortable home with attentive owner. She responded promptly to issues that arose during our stay. The kids loved the pool and the adults enjoyed the pool table & kayaks. My only complaint would be for the lack of kitchen stemware and cutlery. Most of the glasses were plastic. We purchased inexpensive glassware to supplement the stock. Additionally the cutlery is in poor condition. The knives are dull and some are actually bent. That said, overall, this was a great place to stay in Crystal River.

Great place for a small group. Perfect location if you have a boat. Quiet street.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location previously and the new owers have done a nice job updating the look and vibe. If you love the beach cottage feel, this place is for you. Quiet street, with easy access to King’s Bay and the Gulf from your private dock. Very nice covered pool area and pool table are bonuses!

The house was beautiful and accommodated 9 people with ease.

  • 5 of 5

The amenities at this house were amazing. We loved to pool, it was clean and big enough for the whole family to sit around and socialize. The rooms in the “South Wing” we just far away that if others stayed up late to play pool or swim you could not hear them. The rooms in the “North Wing” were comfortable (just like all the rooms) and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again and again and would recommend it to everyone.
