Our visitors enjoy the tranquility that our home offers. It is very common to see manatees slowly making their way through our canal along with an occasional dolphin or otter sighting!! There are several species of birds that come to feed in our yard that can be viewed through our comfortable Florida room and back screened patio. This home is located near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential neighborhood.
We have plenty of room to park your vehicles and boat trailers in the long driveway or in the yard. There is also a covered carport for your vehicle.
We do offer 3 single seater kayaks and a paddleboard here at the home at no additional cost to you, along with paddles and life jackets. We also provide 2 beach cruiser bicycles at no additional cost. We have a crabtrap in the back you can use as there are several blue crabs in the canal. There is also a fish cleaning table in the back in front of the boatslip.
The home comes completely stocked with kitchen utensils, cookware, bed linens, towels and washcloths, soap and cleaning materials. There is a full washer/dryer here for your use and we keep you stocked with laundry detergent. All you need to bring are your personal toiletries and food!!
There is a county boat ramp with rest rooms and picnic area about 4 miles down Fort Island Trail. Fort Island Gulf Beach is 6 miles away on Ft. Island trail.
The area is perfect for swimming with the manatees and swimming in nearby springs. 3 Sisters and King spring are within paddling distance.

About Property Manager
Bob and Ramona Kennedy first came to Crystal River in 1969 and knew King's Bay was the slice of heaven they were looking for to live and love and raise their 3 boys. In 2001, their offspring, the 3 Kennedy brothers decided to go in on a joint venture to share the beauty, fun, and adventure they experienced growing up on Kings Bay. There have now been 3 generations of Kennedy's raised here!
Property Manager purchased this House in 2001
Why Property Manager chose Crystal River
This home and property is truly a gem - from the spreading arms of our giant oak, to the gentle tides flowing in and out in the canal in the back yard, this space provides instant peace and tranquility.
What makes this House unique
Manatees are often seen in the canal behind the house. Otter, Dolphins, and many types of fish can also be viewed swimming by. Fish from the seawall as well as crab. Birdwatching can also be enjoyed here.

Very nice and new on the inside.
Great location for enjoying the natural beauty of Crystal river. Can launch kayaks, provided by the owner 👍🏻, and easily paddle out to a very serene and natural river. Also great seafood in Crystal River and Homassassa Springs. All around great trip.
A comfortable and clean home with excellent views and access to Kings Bay.
The home was very comfortable. It was a cooler week in Crystal River, but being from Minnesota, we still enjoyed and made use of the kayaks and even the pool. I found the owners to be very responsive to our needs. They promptly responded to our calls and emails. We will definitely go back in the future.
Great location and manatees in canal!
Location is great for kayaking and swimming with the manatees. They even show up in canal next to the house! Lots of birds and other wildlife. We even saw dolphins on the bay!
The house is very spacious and nicely decorated. Very pleasant to stay for a couple of days.
Everything was perfect!
The house was beautiful & very clean! The beds were very comfortable; the neighborhood was nice; they had kayaks & bicycles at the property, which served as cheap entertainment for the (4) teenagers we had w/us - they loved it!! The dining room table perfectly seats (6), which allowed us to eat together & play board games. The owners really focused on the small details, making our stay comfortable & enjoyable. Thank you for sharing your home - we’ll definitely be back!
Truly relaxing experience
Exterior is not the best greeting for new clients, but the interior is up to date clean and well decorated. There wasn't anything that we might need that wasn't right there.
Nice Vacation House
The house, in a quite neighborhood, was very neat and clean and looked like it was recently renovated including kitchen appliances and plumbing fixtures. The kayaks were allot of fun. Easy access from the canal behind the house out to the river where, when the conditions are right, the manatees can be seen. The pool area was private and a very nice place to relax and take dip. Short drive to restaurants and shopping.
