About Mike & Kim Westcott

We are Florida residents, we live in Pinellas County just 2.5 hours away from our Crystal River home. We love traveling, nature, hiking, and just about every other outdoor activity.

Mike & Kim Westcott purchased this house in 2015

Why Mike & Kim Westcott chose Indian Waters

We chose Crystal River to buy our vacation home, because we love the outdoors and enjoy the secluded natural areas of Florida. Crystal River is surrounded by nature yet only minutes away from modern amenities, it is the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

This home has that old world feel before life got so busy, we have combined its cozy traditional character such as the wood burning fireplace, hand carved dining room table, and antique furniture, with decorations that we have acquired from our many travels around the world.

Great place to stay, so much to do

  • 5 of 5

It was fun to see a different part of Florida. I was surprised to see palm trees and evergreens growing next to each other. The house had plenty of room for a larger family or even two families. It was well stocked with board games and videos. Outside there was a putting green and shuffleboard. The water was right in the backyard and they had kayaks, stand up paddle boards, a canoe and a pedal boat. We took the canoe out and saw a juvenile alligator along the shoreline. They also had many bikes, we rode to the 2 state parks down the road.

The house had flyers for state parks, biking trails, restaurants and other things to do. We had a great time.

We had a blast at this house. So much to do. We loved being on the water and riding bikes to the parks near by. We drove to Hunter Spring and saw manatees! Very comfortable, clean, well stocked kitchen and plenty of room. We would stay again for sure.

Paradise Kayak Club Fall Trip

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Crystal Springs, FL and were particularly pleased with the property we rented. It would be helpful to add a ladder to the floating dock. It was a bit of a challenge getting out of our kayaks. I would also put a mirror in the guest bedrooms in case the bathroom is occupied and multiple people are "getting ready" at the same time. The extra's provided at this property such as kayaks, paddle-boards, shuffleboard, games, movies etc. really add to the overall value of the property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback and suggestions. We have started researching types of ladders for the dock to help with that.

Scalloping on Crystal River

  • 4 of 5

The house had everything we needed to have a great time. We didn't have time to enjoy all the toys that they had, like the stand up paddle boards , kayaks, and paddle boat. We may have to stay longer next time . Had a great time scalloping and going to Hunter Springs. We sure would stay there again. The house had plenty of room for the whole family.

Wonderful Place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at the Wescott home. The house is nice,clean, and big enough for our group. The dock is perfect for our boats (very convenient). Our children love the shuffle board court. We like the back patio and grill. It fits our needs perfectly. It's a great place for us.

If you enjoy fishing, scalloping, diving, exploring nature, and swimming with manatees, this is the rental for you. Located on a canal on the north side of the river, you are just a few minutes boat ride to enjoying the fresh spring fed waters of Crystal River. If you prefer the salt water, simply head out toward the mouth of the river to enjoy the warm gulf waters.
