About the owner: Our family lives just outside of Orlando which is approximately 1.5 hours from Crystal River. We currently have three vacation rental locations in Crystal River with this location being our first private home. We are all Florida natives; Pete grew up in Inverness which is the town next to our vacation home and why we chose Crystal River. We like the laid back sleepy little town feel and fell in love with the areas springs, specifically Three Sisters. What started as a weekend get a way has turned into a wonderful place we are happy to share. We chose Crystal River because I grew up close to the springs and remember swimming in them as a kid. I enjoyed frequent field trips and summer camps to see the manatees and swim in the springs. My first scuba trip was in King Springs, around the corner from our place. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we have.... Crystal River is a quiet little town with plenty to offer. The springs are beautiful and Kings Springs is less than a 10 minute paddle from our dock. On any given morning you can see manatees and dolphin swim in the natural spring near our boathouse. From our back yard, you can boat or paddle to waterfront restaurants and enjoy the nature preserve in Kings Bay. A 7 mile scenic boat ride takes you to the Gulf of Mexico where there is fantastic fishing, nature viewing and in the summer, scallop harvesting. You will enjoy near by Homosassa Wildlife Park and Indian burial grounds which leave a lot to explore. Golf courses, bike/hiking trails close will allow for an active vacation if desired.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal River, FL, USA:
We really liked this home in particular because there is nature in front of us and nature behind us (including a natural spring). We also loved the layout of the house with a private master suite on the 3rd level which includes a private bathroom, large walk in shower and private balcony. The middle level offers a large screened in porch a step away from the kitchen for easy morning coffee or dinner outside. We like being on the water and close to nature with the luxuries of town close by which made this home the ideal place....
