About the Property

2BR/1.5B - Modern Private Home with Balcony and View

Enjoy that tropical atmosphere? This is it! Admire Crystal River from elevated porch area in this private stilt home. Feel like you are on the water even from inside...windows offer lovely vistas from the great room and kitchen! Enjoy new flooring and nautical decor with all the amenities, including ice-maker, internet and entertainment center. Downstairs is a screened area for grilling which overlooks the dock and cleaning station. Sleeps 5, and best suited for a couple or family. The second bedroom is small as seen in photo.
Bedroom 1 Queen bed
Bedroom 2 Bunk beds plus single bed
Bath 1 in master suite, has shower, toilet and Jacuzzi tub.
Bath 2 toilet and sink,... washer and dryer
Living room has cable tv and dvd player. Master bedroom as small tv with tape player. Downstairs features grilling area and also outside shower.
Quiet and peaceful, away from the in town highways. Plenty of room to park cars and boat trailer. Dock accommodates motor or sailboat....wide deep canal. Boat ramp is about a mile past our entrance and takes only 5 minutes to drive your boat around to the dock. Home is about five houses from mouth of river on the west side. I am told that the latitude is 28.90281 and longitude is -82.62089800000001; however I don't have any idea if that is correct! But I do know that you will love the location!

"E-mail owner" through this website first to confirm dates. We require a signed Rental Agreement (which is sent to you by e-mail), and then a separate $500 damage deposit check is due prior to check in.

Location

2 Miles
Nearest Beach
Fort Island Trail Gulf Beach

Manatees. Swim and view manatees in world famous Crystal River and Springs. Rent kayaks or boats. Lots of dive gear places and fishing/manatee guides are available. Three Sisters Spring is featured in April 2013 of National Geographic.

A State Archeological Park is directly across the river.

Very quiet and peaceful. We also recommend Hommossasa State wildlife park just north of Crystal River. Great fun for anyone!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Owners are lifetime Florida residents, University of Florida Gators with two U of FL student daughters. Since 2003 this has been a weekend home.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal River, FL, USA:
You can book this private home for the price of a condo! Memories are made here! This is a fun and peaceful place for a couple or a family. Canal on one side with river view, and wildlife preserve on the other side. Perfect location for scalloping,... + fishing, kayaking, swimming near manatees, and water activities. See Scallop season at: http://myfwc.com/fishing/saltwater/recreational/bay-scallops/

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drink your coffee viewing morning sunrise from the porch. Sun is behind the house in late afternoon. Large covered grilling area downstairs is great for hanging out near the waterfront! Owner loves to help guests enjoy their stay!
