About the Property

Elegant Mediterranean, Screened Pool/Hot Tub Just off Main Channel, 4 bedrooms

This bright and cheerful 2500 sq. foot, Mediterranean-ranch has four bedroom, two baths and is centrally located near Kings Bay in Crystal Shores - an exclusive neighborhood on Crystal River. The home is only five houses from the main channel on Crystal River Lagoon with good water and no bridges. By car, the home is just off Fort Island Trail, and a few miles from the Plantation Golf Course and Spa, shopping, restaurants, movie theaters, Three Sister's Spring or Fort Island Trail Beach. Two public boat launches are within minutes of the house.

At Casa Del Sol it is the owner's desire to provide you with everything you would expect - A well decorated home in cheery shades of teal, citron and terracotta giving it that uniquely Mediterranean feel.

The home was remodeled in January of 2017 with all new cabinetry, Saltillo tile flooring, new windows and doors, custom bar with reclaimed wood from South America and new furniture. No expense was held back in the furnishings and remodel. The home offers quality furniture and bedding, a screened - solar heated - saltwater pool, hot tub, 24 foot boat dock, fish cleaning station and two fishing kayaks for exploring the area's waterways. Don't forget to peek around the side of the home for the private, outdoor shower. Bring your swimsuit and favorite water toys and you're ready for a vacation your family will always remember!

The Master Suite has a king bed and wall mounted 32" Flat Screen TV. The master bath is completely remodeled with travertine wall tile, private water closet, large walk-in shower with both a wall jet and overhead rain shower head and walk-in closet and double bowl vanity. A second bedroom, which is separated by two - barn style sliding doors, adjoins the Master Suite. This room has two twin beds and large glass doors to the covered lanai.

On the opposite side of the home are two additional bedrooms each with a king bed. These rooms have a shared, newly remodeled bathroom with a shower/tub combo.

The main living room has a 50" Flat Screen TV and DVD player and large overstuffed couch and chair. It's the perfect place to relax with friends or to watch a game.

The pub room has a unique beverage bar made from reclaimed wood from South America that seats four on leather bar stools in hues from the Caribbean of Teal, Burnt Orange and Citron, and a pub table that seats an additional four. Its the perfect spot for hanging out and entertaining.

The family room, has a fireplace, book lending library, DVD library, game cabinet, new rattan furniture and 32" wall mounted - flat screen TV.

The completely remodeled kitchen is well stocked with dishes for 12, a host of small appliances including a deep fryer, crock pot, blender and margarita machine. The stove, dishwasher and refrigerator are all new. The kitchen also has a breakfast bar with seating for four. The dining room has a Tommy Bahama dinning table that seats six.

From the pub room you enter the pool area with an additional seating area for outdoor dining and barbequing as well as the screened, solar heated, salt-water pool and hot tub. There is a large gas barbeque for your use.

The home has WiFi and cable TV.

At Casa Del Sol you can fish and watch manatees from the private boat dock. Area fishing is wonderful! Trout, snapper, and redfish are abundant in the area. Off shore fishing includes trout, grouper, tarpon and shark. Professional guides are available for fishing excursions. Or, you can pack a lunch, board the kayak - provided with your rental - and head for Three Sister's Spring - a short 30 minute kayak ride - for a day of sight seeing and Manatee watching. Manatees frequent our cove and can be seen from the dock along with other area wildlife. At the end of the day wash the salt off in the private outdoor shower and relax by the pool or sit in the hot tub. From Casa Del Sol's screened lanai you can kick back, enjoy your favorite cold drink and watch the sun set over Crystal River.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Where would we ever begin to tell someone our story. The truth be told, we are two couples, nearing our "golden years", who simply decided to go in together to invest in a property that we could provide for other's enjoyment and occasionally sneak away from our busy lives to enjoy ourselves. Thus began our search for a vacation rental. Having fallen in love with the Crystal River area, it looked like a perfect place for our rental adventure to unfold. So, in February of 2015, we began a quest to find a home that would meet our needs as well as the needs of our guests. Knowing the value of a great location, the property had to be well situated just of the main channel in Crystal River. It also had to have a pool, at least three bedrooms, a dock and a garage. We believe we found the perfect home with Casa Del Sol. With a little finesse and our special attention to detail, we believe it will not only meet our requirements but exceed them. From the moment you walk into your vacation rental, it is our sincere desire that you feel this way too. We hope you visit often and enjoy your stay at Casa Del Sol!

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Shores, Crystal River, FL, USA:
This home will complete your check off list of wants. It offers: Two Fishing Kayaks. A 24 foot dock which easily accomodates two boats and a fish cleaning station with running water. Everything is new, clean and bright with a fun tropical flair. Location is everything at Crystal River and this home is perfectly situated - close to everything Crystal River has to offer - just off the main channel with good water and no bridges to either the Gulf or Kings Bay. Wildlife is abundant - with Manatees right at our dock. The neighborhood is safe, clean and quiet. A great area for evening and morning walks and bike riding.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Del Sol is just 5 houses from our other home - Casa De Rio - VRBO #902267. Rent both homes for family get-togethers or reunions. Enjoy Casa Del Sol's fun, up-beat, tropical atmosphere, hot tub, screened pool and deep water dock one day and Casa De Rio's sophisticated, relaxing atmosphere, outdoor kitchen and beautiful canal setting the next day. It's the best of both worlds within an easy walk.
