About Constance Cartwright

I am a business owner in Ft Myers, Fl. I went to school & College in Florida. I am married with 2 adult children & 2 grandchildren. We truly love the beautiful Crystal River area.

Why Constance Cartwright chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

I have always been a resident of SW Florida. I discovered scalloping a few years ago. I decided to buy a family vacation home & rent it to others who love Florida & scalloping. Please come & stay at our family's vacation home on the beautiful Crystal River.

What makes this house unique

It was our hope to find a single family home on Crystal River. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. I know you will too. It's got a wonderful back yard & boat docks & the canal goes directly to the river where you can fish & scallop to your heart's content. Please come & see this lovely home you will enjoy your stay.

Loved this house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with the perfect location. Was our first stay in Crystal River. The canal to the dock was very easy to go down and there was plenty of room for both of our boats. The run out from the river took no time at all. Much easier than Homosassa. We got out there and got lots of scallops. It was our first time and we had a ball. The house was super clean, very open, and comfortable, and the kitchen was big and had everything you could possibly need. Constance was such a pleasure to talk to and work with - I feel like I've known her forever!! We will definitely be back!

Best scalloping vacation yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Constance, was very responsive and answered all of our questions, but I wasn't sure what to expect upon arrival, as there weren't too many pictures on the site at the time of our booking. As soon as we opened the door we were pleasantly surprised. The home was FABULOUS!

The living area is nice and open with a view straight through to the beautiful backyard. The couches are extremely comfortable, but with so much to do nearby, you won't be sitting on them for long! The home is a split bedroom plan, and all of the beds were comfortable. Best of all, the home was CLEAN.

The home had two docks that easily accommodated both of our boats, plus our friends boat when they came over to visit. The canal to the river is short and easy to navigate, and the run out to the gulf was so much shorter and less treacherous than the Homosassa River run we were use to! It was an easy ride all around Kings Bay, including over to Hunter Springs where we spent the afternoons cooling off. 3 sisters spring was closed for construction during our stay, but that gives us a reason to come back.

At night we all hung out in the screen enclosed porch which had seating for everyone. We went out to dinner twice, once to Crackers and once to a Mexican restaurant down the street. Both were great! Some friends went to grannies for breakfast and said that was good too.

I highly recommend this home for your next vacation in beautiful Crystal River!

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

I loved the property it was very comfortable and clean. A nice relaxing get away not to far from stores and restaurants. I enjoyed the food at Crackers good seafood and nice location and for lunch The Brooklyn Deli was so good. Grannies had great breakfast. We went and swam with the manatees which was great so much fun and close. The owner was very personal and friendly. I highly recommend this house it's close to everything but tucked away from the hustle of life. I loved it.
