About Jan

I am a 4th generation Floridian born and raised in Tampa. Crystal River is a slice of Old Florida. At our home you are in the woods it is very peaceful and tranquil this is the real Florida thats why we love it so much.

Jan purchased this house in 2002

Why Jan chose Woods N Waters

Crystal River has small town atmosphere you are close yet far away. We looked in many areas yet were drawn back to Crystal River. Th neighbor hood is small and quiet no traffic.

What makes this house unique

The area is so peaceful and relaxing. Your up in the trees, like a tree house. Easy living makes you want to stay forever!

Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time here. Clean and spacious. So easy and everything perfect. Within minutes of all of the rivers, springs and bayous. We could have stayed another week or more and still not experienced all we wanted to in the area. We loved coming back to the home after days spent exploring some of the rivers/springs. Shhh...do you hear that?....peaceful. Thank you again.

Summer trip

  • 4 of 5

Except for having more stairs than we wanted to climb, the home was beautiful. Lots of room to lounge around in & nice kitchen. Because of the time of year (summer) it was HOT to be outside as well as lots of bugs, but that's Fl. weather.

My husband, our dog and I spend five days in this beautiful home, enjoying the kayaks, surrounding rivers, coffee on the porch overlooking the river (we saw a school of small sting rays, manatees, fish and birds) and the house itself, lovely! We would love to stay again!

Escaping PA winter

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dogs) spent the week of Christmas 2013 at this rental property. The house is absolutely beautiful--the perfect place to compliment the natural beauty of Crystal River. I particularly enjoyed the jetted tub in the master bedroom! We hope to rent this home again, possibly with another couple. The house offers privacy for two couples as each of the two bedrooms (on different floors) has its own bath. The tiled floors are wonderful for bringing your pets along. From the laundry room, to the well-equipped kitchen, to the grill out on the deck, this home offers the traveler anything that he might need for a comfortable stay. The use of kayaks and bicycles is also a bonus, and the owners are very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this rental property to anyone who asked about a place to stay in Crystal River!

"Our Home Away from Home"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself spent close to 5-weeks at the Chalet in the Woods and had a wonderful time. The house is very spacious, comfortable and in a quiet setting. This was our third trip to Crystal River and living in this house during that time made it very relaxing. The owners were easy to contact and helpful with minor issues that developed during that time. The kitchen was well stocked with anything one would need to prepare meals. Living room furniture was very comfortable and larger size flat screen tv was great. Plenty of bed linens, towels and cleaning supplies. Having the two single kayaks at our disposal was great to get out at a moments notice and do some kayaking. Bicycles were also available on the property. We would certainly return to Crystal River and rent this house.
