About Kami Suggs

My husband, Brad & I live in Fruitland Park, Fl about 1 1/2 hrs. from the property. We love jumping over there every chance we get to go fishing, scalloping & diving. We are both Scuba certified & love all the springs in the area that are nationally known for their manatee. We love to travel & go to the Keys every year with a large group of friends. We both grew up right here in Central Florida and are both in love with the outdoors.

Kami Suggs purchased this house in 2013

Why Kami Suggs chose Crystal River

There is so much to do, so close. There are Manatee and Dolphin Tours right in Crystal River. You can bring your own boat or find many available Captains close by. You can fish local for trout or redfish or go out deep sea fishing. Our favorite is scalloping in the summertime - its an underwater shell hunt the whole family can enjoy. There is a public boat ramp just 1 mile around the corner and a quiet beautiful beach with restroom facilities just 5 miles down the road at the end of Fort Island Trail.

What makes this house unique

This house has something to offer all year round. There are so many convenient features. Not yet mentioned is the Winn Dixie Grocery Store right at the end of the road, several kayak & canoe rental stores & even an Anytime Fitness close by. The Plantation Golf Resort is just 4 mls. away & Encore Campground is also within 1 mile.

Lovely quiet home

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying in this comfortable environment. We docked our boat behind the house and scalloped, swam and fished. The house is close to some relatives and that also helped. The flatware was kind of sparse - this is an area for improvement. We would go again and hope to.

The house had everything we needed to enjoy our vaction

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out great for us. The house was clean and well laid out. There were some minor issues just like any house, but nothing that would keep us from making this place our first house to try to rent on our next Crystal River trip. The house is close to town and it a short run to the ocean. It was great to get the family back together. Thanks

Just an unfortunate situation makes for a weird review

  • 4 of 5

We have the house reserved for five nights and once we arrive love the place. It was even better than in the photos. Including a really nice doc area for our boat, upgraded kitchen and comfortable beds.

Unfortunately the AC broke the first day meaning we had to move out on Day 2. The owner had a repairman out promptly but they could not fix it until the following week. The owner immediately contacted VRBO and by the next day our refund was being processed.

I can’t give it five stars for that reason! But once the house gets a new AC I will definitely return and can see me giving a 5 star rating at that time.

I work for a company that lives on guest service and the owner was excellent.

Great location on Crystal River

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a great location, the dock was convenient, and the route to the river was easy to maneuver. There were some issues with the home and amenities during our visit. The owner was able to rectify a few during our stay and has advised us that she took care of others for future guests.
