Wonderful new home right on the water!
This home was completed in October 2018 and is immaculate. The property manager Nancy did a fantastic job in preparing the house and answering all the questions. This home serves as a winter home for the owners who live in the Pacific Northwest, so the furnishings are what you would see if you stayed in someone's home. It does not have the typical "rental" feel.
We specifically chose the home because it was on the canal and had a boat dock. Two years ago we rented a house two canals away and really liked the location for scalloping. The floating dock was perfect and made loading and unloading a breeze. I would estimate you could keep two boats here using the dock and the pilings. There is a boat lift but it is unavailable for renters use. It is about a 10 to 15 minute idle speed run to Crystal River.
Parking is excellent. The home is located on a cul-de-sac and we parked our trailer on the opposite side of the cul-de-sac from the house. However we could've also put the trailer in the driveway or (once some paver work is complete) on the side of the house. I would say that there's plenty of room for two trailers and 3 to 4 vehicles.
We had access to all of the house except the owners' closets. This included the garage which was handy for loading and unloading. The house is well equipped with bicycles, kayaks, all the electronics and Wi-Fi you could want, and a well-stocked kitchen. We found the beds and furniture to be very comfortable. Finally, the owners provide a welcome basket with a few goodies from their home in the Pacific Northwest which was a wonderful touch!
I would absolutely consider renting this house again. It surpassed our expectations.
Scallop season annual family vacation
The "live bait" house was great, the channel going out to main river was deep and beautiful. The house was exactly what we expected, clean organized, and kitchen was extremely equipped... Nancy was helpful and responded quickly to anything we needed.... overall - five stars from our family....
Lovely house in Crystal River
Great place to stay for a few days, and it was exactly as described. Well equipped for a comfortable stay. Nancy was very helpful with check in, thank you. We had fun with the Kayaks as well as visiting the manatees and springs.
Our stay at "Live Bait" was excellent!
The property was exactly as it was described. The location was on a quiet street and provided easy access to Crystal River by car or boat. The house was amazingly clean and comfortable. We loved the welcoming items provided by the owners. Nancy, our contact person, was wonderful. She was readily available to answer any questions or promptly solve problems. We would gladly stay again.
Beautiful brand new home
The home is brand new. Every single thing in the house was new. Beautifully, tastefully, comfortably furnished. Nice, quiet neighborhood and great location. The owners were quick to respond with questions and information. We brought our kayaks and used them every day on the beautiful Crystal River. We launched from Hunter Springs kayak rentals which was about 10 minutes or less from the house. Nice sandy beach, playground for kids and manatees right off the shore. Swimming with the manatees was the highlight of our trip.
Thank you for staying at Live Bait. We look forward to you and your family staying with us again. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
