3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps
This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath updated home located on a canal that opens into beautiful Kings Bay. There is a large, screened in, heated pool that overlooks the water.
There is a large ice machine with a storage bin that can be used to fill a 100 quart cooler perfect for taking on your boat. There is a large side yard that will easily fit 2 boat trailers. Our home is approximately 0.5 miles from a public boat ramp and we have a boat dock at the house. At our boat dock there is a fish cleaning table/sink with running water. Our canal is not suited for deep sea boats, flats boats only as it can get shallow in the winter. We have seen many manatees and even an occasional dolphin in front of our dock.
Our house is on a canal in the perfect location! Just out of the canal is beautiful King's Bay with a very short boat ride (10 min) to the famous Three Sister's Springs. Our house is also a short boat ride (15-20 minutes) to the main scalloping area. The fishing is excellent almost everywhere in Crystal River.
There are great restaurants nearby and we are happy to give you ideas on where to go.

About Cathy and Ryan Meeks
My husband and I live in Ocala, FL and were born and raised in Florida. We love traveling and being on the water. We love spending time in Crystal River when our house is not being rented and feel like this is a vacation everytime we stay.
Cathy and Ryan Meeks purchased this House in 2013
Why Cathy and Ryan Meeks chose Crystal River
We bought our Crystal River house in 2013 after spending many weekends fishing and scalloping here over the years. We have fallen in love with our house and are continually adding new furniture and decorations. This house is on a private canal with little boat traffic and is in a peaceful area. We have seen several manatees and alligators in our canal. Our home is very cozy with leather, reclining couches and a flatscreen TV for when you are tired from your daily water activities. There is a heated pool and FL is typically warm enough 10 months out of the year to enjoy the pool.
What makes this House unique
Crystal River has a lot to offer. Whether you are an avid fisher, snorkeler, kayaker or just enjoy relaxing in a peaceful area, you will find what you are looking for. The winter and spring is great for swimming with the manatees where the spring water is 72 degrees year round. In the summer, scalloping has become very famous in Crystal River. After a long day on the water, whether in the summer or spring, you can enjoy our heated pool which overlooks the canal. Crystal River has great restaurants, pubs, a winery/brewery, a beautiful state park, a golf course 5 minutes from the house, etc.

We enjoy the time in Crystal River every year
The house is very nice and the pool is great. We have alot of fun golfing, and going out to the local places. We have met alot of nice people.
WE LOVED OUR STAY AT THIS LOCATION PLUS RYAN AND CATHY MEEKS COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE ACCOMODATING. THEY RESPONDED QUICKLY TO OUR REQUESTS AND WORKED AROUND OUR SCHEDULE. THE GREAT ROOM WAS SPACIOUS AND ACCOMODATING, WHILE THE LANAI AREA WAS PROBABLY THE MOST USED. WE WERE ALSO ABLE TO MAKE USE OF THE DOCK BEHIND THE HOUSE TO KAYAK INTO KING'S BAY. CRYSTAL RIVER IS A GREAT PLACE TO VACATION!
Great vacation getaway!
We really enjoyed this stay. The house has everything you need and I can't say enough about the master walk-in shower! Comfortable furniture, great pool. Easy trailer parking in the side yard. We brought our kayaks down and kayaked Kings Bay, the Chassahowitzka river, and Weeki Wachi. So much fun and a relaxing house. Some internet issues popped up but Cathy took care of it as soon as possible. Would recommend this for anyone wanting a nice relaxing getaway.
Had a great time staying here. Waterway out to main channel is shallow a foot and a half @ low tide in some places. Stayed two yrs in a row
Beautiful area, very relaxing and fun for all ages.
We had a wonderful time! The house was very comfortable, weather was beautiful and we got our limit in scallops everyday! Great vacation home...has something for everyone!
Beautiful house and furnishings
We had a great time. The pictures do not do this house Justice. We came for the week to go scalloping. The only problem we had was the canal was quite low at times and we were thankful that we had a flats boat this year. We would definitely stay here again!
