Lovely interior! Clean solid house and accomodating owner.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun vacation enjoying the natural beauty of the Crystal River area and its clear springs. It really feels like Florida did before the theme parks. I highly recommend renting kayaks to get close to the manatees and the lush scenery. Hunter Springs Kayaks was terrific and accomodating.

The house is just ok on the outside, but beautiful and comfortable inside with eclectic chabby chic decor. A couple of things would have made things nicer. The Direct TV was extremely unreliable. Sometimes it wouldn't work at all and we were never able to watch a show all the way through. It seems that there also should be comfortable lounge chairs that could be used to take a little snooze outside on the deck. There were only iron dining type chairs. Otherwise, all was well and we found everything we needed there.

Owner's Response: Kathy, We're glad y'all enjoyed your visit. I appreciate your letting me know about the Direct TV. We were unaware of any problems and I will certainly try to get that corrected. I hope you will consider us again on your next visit to the Crystal River area. Thank you, Rayna

Perfect waterfront vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered to celebrate our 60th birthday. It was perfect for for docking our flats boat & was able to bring our golf cart to drive to the downtown area of Crystal River. The location is close to store, restaurants & shopping.

The house has 3 nice bedrooms & several areas for gathering. Super nice kitchen with dining area overlooking channel. The decor is absolutely gorgeous & comfortable !

Very clean, close to Manatee excursion sites

  • 4 of 5

We stayed this past weekend and had a great time at this house. The house was so clean! The only thing that I would change is that there is only 1 TV for the entire house (there are no TVs in any of the 3 bedrooms). Normally that wouldn't be a problem except with a few kids/teens not everyone wants to watch the same thing. The house has a lovely dock in the back yard and we were able to launch our kayaks directly off of the dock and go right around the corner to enjoy the Manatees. This is an awesome house to stay in if you want a relaxing weekend to Kayak or see local sites. I highly recommend this house!

Very Very Nice. Had a skiff (18') with us, went fishing, saw the mermaids, fish bowl, had a lovely time and returned to a very nice home after every day. Close to stores and bait shops. Lovely home.
