wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing spacious house! Very accommodating host. Very large Kitchen/great room, with dining table and breakfast bar, large widescreen tv, and audio system which can be piped down to lower outdoor level. Very nice master bedroom/bathroom, 2nd queen bedroom, and a 3rd kids bedroom with bunk bed. There is a full-size refrigerator and small bar with stools on the wrap around deck. Pool table, large hot tub, grille, table, lounge chairs, and more under main structure of stilted house; so plenty of shade if desired. There is a nice private Beach with palm trees just outside the sunset-facing West entrance at the bottom of the steps. 4 available kayaks. We saw dolphins on our very 1st trip on the water!! We even caught fish and blue crabs from the boat dock. There is also fun tiki-style bar on the dock as well, with running water, a refrigerator, and a fish-cleaning station. Bait can be purchased in town across from a very good restaurant/bar, Backwater Fins. Eat amazing bacon wrapped jumbo shrimp, or an awesome burger! Quiet neighborhood with friendly folks all around. We felt very much at home from the moment we arrived. Billy was a great host, offering much knowledge of the area. He even helped make arrangement for us to take a fishing trip from our private dock!

We most certainly will be returning soon! Thanks, Billy, for the much-needed relaxing and exciting vacation! See you soon!!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by William and given a tour of the home. He had a wonderful welcome basket for us.

The home was beautiful and had every amenity! William even helped my husband get our boat to the homes dock!

I would stay here again, hands down!

Scallop time!!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this property for the start of scallop season in the Crystal River area of the Florida peninsula just a few hundred feet from the St. Martin's River. You are as close to ocean access as you can be in this area. This is a lovely home, comfortable with a large, well-appointed kitchen, master suite and great room. It lies at the end of a winding road through the wetlands of Citrus County surrounded by natural beauty. The sunsets from the balcony will draw you outside with a cold drink each night. There are several excellent restaurants close by that serve great food with welcoming staffs at very reasonable prices. You can fish or catch blue crabs for dinner right from the dock. If you plan to bring your boat, it must have a shallow draft to reach or depart the property. Kayaks are provided and they are safe and well-maintained. The owner and his family will greet you in person and make you feel welcome from the start. You are sure to enjoy your stay if relaxation and distance from noise and crowds is your style.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here two years in a row. The house is super clean and the location is great for peace and quiet. There is pretty much every toy imaginable (pool table, hot tub, kayaks) if you don't feel like spending every day on the water. The owner keeps the house in great shape. Highly recommend this place

Amazing house, location, and owner

  • 5 of 5

We already booked for next year, so that should be the biggest indication of how great this rental is. The owner Billy is great. He's available anytime by text or phone if you have questions about anything. He's also a huge resource on the area in general as we were staying here partly so we could look at real estate in Ozello. If you've never been to Ozello but you've been to the Florida Keys, then Ozello will give you 95% of what the Keys offer for a fraction of the cost and with easier access to real town chain stores and gas stations. The views from the house are amazing. Every morning I would get up early before everybody else and go sit out on the porch. We were there in early June and yes it gets hot in the afternoon but the ocean breeze definitely helps. If you were inland at all and not positioned perfectly like this property is then it wouldn't have that advantage. This house truly has everything covered. He has 99% of every kitchen utensil you could possibly need and many more I don't need (especially on a vacation). I usually end up looking forward to being in my own house by the end of a vacation and I think this is the first one that I was honestly disappointed to be back in my own house afterwards. We tried to explore the area as much as possible while we were there. Next time I'll be skipping Peck's Old Port Cove and going straight to Backwater Fins every time. Their food, prices, and service were top notch and it's within walking distance of the property if you enjoy a good walk (or kayak). Speaking of kayaks, there are 4 of them there and we used them every other day. Just don't venture too far as you still have to have enough energy to get back. We had a total of 2 couples and the house was the perfect fit for that. There was another small bedroom with bunkbeds that we didn't use at all. If you had 2 couples plus a few kids it would still work well. The livingroom / kitchen is huge so no shortage of space for people to hang out. I really can't say enough good things about this place so if you're even considering this property you need to just book it while you still can. I did.

nothing less than spectacular

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the property Billy was there to greet us with his adorable dog Mitzie. He gave us a tour of the property which is just absolutely awesome. The pictures don't do us justice. The gift basket was better than any four star hotel we have ever stayed at!! He was even kind enough to take us out on his boat down to Homosassa where we where able to see manatees. Our six month old son LOVED the boat ride. Any time we had a question or need he was right there always available! If you are looking for somewhere that is not only beautiful but with hospitality to match this is the house to stay at. This trip was for our honeymoon and we plan to come back year after year to this wonderful home! We made great memories at this house fishing from the dock and breakfast on the balcony. Really there is nothing but nice things to say about this place!! Thank you Billy for a great time and we look forward to our next stay!!
