Property description

Enjoy our clean and affordable three bedrooms two bath three level private home with screened in decks/porches on each level overlooking a large spring, canal and wilderness. You will certainly spend your mornings sipping coffee or your evenings having dinner on the middle deck steps from a modern kitchen. The home is stocked with everything you need including WiFi, flat screen TV’s and a sound bar to Bluetooth your music/movies. You will love how close it is to shops and restaurants while being quiet and surrounded by nature. Our canal leads to Kings Bay/Crystal River and Gulf with no bridges. We have a covered boathouse, screened fish cleaning station and trailer parking on the property. We offer three kayaks currently (two single and one tandem sit on top). This home is ideal for large families, couples or two families since it is a three level home where you can enjoy the common areas and have privacy by retreating to the first or third floor.
Good chance you will see plenty of wildlife in the springs off our dock including manatees, otters, plenty of birds, fish, turtles and an occasional pod of dolphins. Kayak the premiere spot for manatee watching or snorkeling with Kings Springs a short 10 minute paddle!
Our fully equipped kitchen has everything you need for cooking - refrigerator, coffee maker, blender, full sized stove and oven, and microwave plus all new utensils, cookware and dishes.
The master suite includes a King Bed, flat screen TV, private bathroom with a large shower overlooking the nature preserve and private balcony. The 2 remaining bedrooms each have queen beds and one room has a 2nd full bed all with high quality linens.
The quiet neighborhood is safe and secure. There is a restaurant, dive shop, national park, and an outdoor sunset bar all within a five minute drive!!! A bike trail 1 mile away.
A big grocery store is a few minutes away. Downtown Crystal River is a 8 minute car ride where you can enjoy shopping searching for antiques or strolling the sidewalks. A large mall with 8 theaters is a 10 minute drive. You will love the location, having so many restaurants, banks and shopping so close and having nature even closer!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

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....
