This immaculate, fully renovated (3) bedroom, 2 bath waterfront family home with heated saltwater pool (3rd bedroom doubles as a den with a sleeper sofa for the bed) has its own dock and 10,000 lb. boatlift. Fresh water and electricity is available at the boatlift. The back yard is fenced. Our minpin puppies play back there often.

The screen-enclosed heated saltwater pool has a misting system that lowers the temp at the sunbathing end of the pool in Summer, and a pool heater that warms the water to your chosen temp in the Winter. Manatee and Dolphin come up to the dock and there are large Sailfin Catfish, Sheepshead fish and Red Snapper to be caught right from the dock or boatlift. You can also catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock. Feel free to use our 4 fishing kayaks (the 4th one is not pictured) with rod holders, paddles and PFDs, our two Sun Bicycles to ride to the mall or state park preserve, our 2 SUP paddle boards, and our 4 person canoe to get you to 3 sister's springs. Boat rentals are available at nearby Plantation Inn.

The back and side yards are large and filled with mature oak and palm trees. The back yard is fenced and there is a doggie door so your pup can come and go freely between the house/pool and yard. There is a finished-in garage with easy inside access to the washer and dryer. There is room in the driveway for two vehicles or a boat trailer or RV. There is a large storage shed in the backyard to store water toys and fishing equipment.

This dog-friendly waterfront home is located on a family-friendly cul-de-sac street in the coveted north end of Crystal River near the mall, restaurants and the downtown area. It is 5 min. from Crystal River Watersports where you can launch your boat for $10, and buy bait and fishing equipment. When not rented, the home is used by our family for personal vacations. Both of our rental homes are equipped with Pack and Play's for out guests with infants.

The home is furnished with good quality furniture, two sleeper sofas and loveseat, newer appliances, bedding, linens, bathrobes, towels, dishes, toaster oven, griddle and more accessories. The kitchen is stocked with the cookware needed to prepare family meals. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed and its own bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has 2 comfortable full size beds. The third bedroom doubles as a den with a sleeper sofa for the bed. There is also another full bathroom located in the hallway. The flooring in the sunroom and throughout the entryways to the home is large ceramic tiles making clean-up easy and fast. There are three new flat-screen TVs; a 48 in. in the livingroom, a 40” in the den and a 32” in the master bedroom. Wi-Fi and basic cable TV are included.

This family-friendly home is located on a deep canal with Gulf access. The sunroom features seating to enjoy the pool, canal and wildlife. The pool lanai is screened with a special fine mesh to help keep even the smallest bugs out. The home is approximately 5-10 minutes drive from King’s Bay (& 3 sisters springs) and 35-40 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat. Fort Island Beach is nearby. A large public pool with a skate park is nearby (behind the airport).

Beautiful and peaceful Crystal River has activities for the whole family and offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. With all of the spring fed rivers and miles of mangroves Crystal River has the best Scalloping grounds in the US. Some of the best scalloping action is usually in 4-6 ft of water around Gomez Rocks at Latitude 2829.8, Longitude 8243.7. Offshore, there is shallow and deep water fishing.

The nearby mall has a multiplex movie theater, restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River. The house is only a short walk or bicycle ride from the Crystal River State Park Reserve and the Mullet Hole fishing spot. There are nine beautiful state parks nearby or play golf at one of the many nearby golf courses. Your family will make wonderful vacation memories here.

You can rent at a very affordable rate by the week.

There is so much to do in Crystal River. It is a family-friendly, nature focused, beautiful, peaceful area. If you enjoy kayaking you are welcome to use our 4 Kayaks w/ paddles & rod holders. You can also rent kayaks at Crystal River Watersports just minutes from the house. Kayaking and kayak fishing in the canal, the river and in Ozello is relaxing and fun! Feel free to use our 2 Sun bikes to ride all over Crystal River. The town is designed for bicycle-riding.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: The Wade family lives in Marietta, GA. about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. We vacationed in Crystal River rental homes for years before finally buying a vacation home here. We wanted a home in the family-friendly north end of Crystal River and our house is perfectly situated for what we were looking for. We considered Panama City Beach as a vacation home location and vacationed there often while making the decision between CR and PCB. We decided we like the nature coast best because there are no high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida, but Crystal River still offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theaters, a mall, quaint shops in the historic district, and more. It has everything we were looking for in a family friendly neighborhood.

Why the Owner Chose Indian Waters, Crystal River, FL, USA:
We chose Crystal River because it is so much more quiet and peaceful than other places we vacationed. We also enjoy watching the manatees and other wildlife from our sunroom and pool area. Our dream was to watch the manatee while enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. We also love the fishing and boating in the area, and being certified scuba divers our entire family likes diving and snorkeling the natural springs in and around the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After staying at dozens of different vacation rental homes we stopped and made a list of all the things we liked, and didn’t like. We picked this house with all of that in mind. We furnished the house with brand new furniture; all very good quality beds, mattresses, sheets and comforters. But the home is not cluttered like so many of the rental homes we stayed in. The kitchen is equipped with all the items you would find in your own kitchen, including quality knives, flatware, appliances, plates, wine glasses, napkins, towels, pots and pans, soap, detergent, and spices — everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer, iron, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We want your family to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. You can reach us at (404) 374-8523 to book one of the best vacations your family will ever have.
