About Dan & Diana
We came to swim with the manatees in 1999, and never left. The Crystal River area is laid back and unhurried, which was reminiscent of our home in Southeastern Michigan. We are still associated with our charity back home which provides services for people with disabilities. We bought the home on the water so we had a place for the people we serve, and our staff to visit and enjoy the beautiful sights and activities available on the Nature Coast. Our daughter, Captain Traci has been a Manatee Tour Provider since 2000 and loves her job. Dan and Diana
Dan & Diana purchased this House in 2000
Why Dan & Diana chose Dixie Shores
The view from the backyard is one of the most beautiful you will ever find. The house is a simple three bedroom ranch which makes it comfortable and inviting. The pool makes it a blast for children of all ages. We usually stay in houses when we travel and our main concern is always cleanliness, then comfort. As such, that is always our priority with Manatee House, and we hope that you appreciate our dedication to your comfort. Our cleaning crew does a wonderful job and Dan will meet you at check in and make sure that everything is as it should be. Paula or Diana are available if an emergency occurs.

Pool was a huge hit!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Manatee house! The children loved the heated pool. Fishing from the backyard was also lots of fun for them. It fit our needs well. There are lots of games there. There weren't really toys for our preschool children, but they found enough to keep themselves entertained most of the time. If we ever vacation in the Crystal River area, we will definitely check into Manatee house again!
Great House with amazing views
We had a large group for the Christmas holiday. The house had tons of room, sleeping space and seating, a great pool and gorgeous bay views with a massive back yard. The hosts were amazingly accommodating and the house was super clean. I absolutely recommend this property.
We had plenty of room for our family vacation. The owners thought of everything!!! (Literally)😃
We will be back.
Home was as described many beds very clean
Created wonderful memories with my children and grandchildren. ..
The house was clean and created a wonderful environment for our large family. I thought the pool would be the focal point where everyone would hang out. Wrong, it was the fishing. The house provided everything we needed, including fishing poles and games. Furniture was a little worn, but not a problem for our crew. ..
Crystal River is the only known place in the world that you are allowed to actually get in the water and swim with manatees, an adventure that you will never forget. The largest concentration of manatees come into Kings Bay and the surrounding areas beginning early fall to late spring, when the ocean gets too cold for them. Some of them stay all year long, especially those who have newborns. The area is also well known for its scalloping season from the end of June until the end of September. We have seafood festivals, art festivals, manatee festival and many fruit themed festivals, such as the strawberry or blueberry festival. We have a local mall and movie theater, a fun activity for all is Paint the Town Citrus, an Art Gallery and Paint and Wine Establishment. Walk In Painting from 1-5 daily and evening events can be booked at 6:30PM nightly.
