This immaculate, fully renovated (3) bedroom, 2 bath waterfront family home with heated saltwater pool (3rd bedroom doubles as a den with a sleeper sofa for the bed) has its own dock and 10,000 lb. boatlift. Fresh water and electricity is available at the boatlift. The back yard is fenced. Our minpin puppies play back there often.

The screen-enclosed heated saltwater pool has a misting system that lowers the temp at the sunbathing end of the pool in Summer, and a pool heater that warms the water to your chosen temp in the Winter. Manatee and Dolphin come up to the dock and there are large Sailfin Catfish, Sheepshead fish and Red Snapper to be caught right from the dock or boatlift. You can also catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock. Feel free to use our 4 fishing kayaks (the 4th one is not pictured) with rod holders, paddles and PFDs, our two Sun Bicycles to ride to the mall or state park preserve, our 2 SUP paddle boards, and our 4 person canoe to get you to 3 sister's springs. Boat rentals are available at nearby Plantation Inn.

The back and side yards are large and filled with mature oak and palm trees. The back yard is fenced and there is a doggie door so your pup can come and go freely between the house/pool and yard. There is a finished-in garage with easy inside access to the washer and dryer. There is room in the driveway for two vehicles or a boat trailer or RV. There is a large storage shed in the backyard to store water toys and fishing equipment.

This dog-friendly waterfront home is located on a family-friendly cul-de-sac street in the coveted north end of Crystal River near the mall, restaurants and the downtown area. It is 5 min. from Crystal River Watersports where you can launch your boat for $10, and buy bait and fishing equipment. When not rented, the home is used by our family for personal vacations. Both of our rental homes are equipped with Pack and Play's for out guests with infants.

This family-friendly home is located on a deep canal with Gulf access. The sunroom features seating to enjoy the pool, canal and wildlife. The pool lanai is screened with a special fine mesh to help keep even the smallest bugs out. The home is approximately 5-10 minutes drive from King’s Bay (& 3 sisters springs) and 35-40 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat. Fort Island Beach is nearby. A large public pool with a skate park is nearby (behind the airport).

Beautiful and peaceful Crystal River has activities for the whole family and offers one of the few remaining areas to scallop in Florida during the summer. With all of the spring fed rivers and miles of mangroves Crystal River has the best Scalloping grounds in the US. Some of the best scalloping action is usually in 4-6 ft of water around Gomez Rocks at Latitude 2829.8, Longitude 8243.7. Offshore, there is shallow and deep water fishing.

The nearby mall has a multiplex movie theater, restaurants and shopping in historic downtown Crystal River. The house is only a short walk or bicycle ride from the Crystal River State Park Reserve and the Mullet Hole fishing spot. There are nine beautiful state parks nearby or play golf at one of the many nearby golf courses. Your family will make wonderful vacation memories here.

You can rent at a very affordable rate by the week.

About Chuck Wade

The Wade family lives in Marietta, GA. about 30 minutes north of Atlanta. We vacationed in Crystal River rental homes for years before finally buying a vacation home here. We wanted a home in the family-friendly north end of Crystal River and our house is perfectly situated for what we were looking for. We considered Panama City Beach as a vacation home location and vacationed there often while making the decision between CR and PCB. We decided we like the nature coast best because there are no high-rise condos here in one of the last remaining natural areas of Florida, but Crystal River still offers all the modern conveniences of shopping, restaurants, supermarkets, movie theaters, a mall, quaint shops in the historic district, and more. It has everything we were looking for in a family friendly neighborhood.

Chuck Wade purchased this house in 2014

Why Chuck Wade chose Crystal River

We chose Crystal River because it is so much more quiet and peaceful than other places we vacationed. We also enjoy watching the manatees and other wildlife from our sunroom and pool area. Our dream was to watch the manatee while enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. We also love the fishing and boating in the area, and being certified scuba divers our entire family likes diving and snorkeling the natural springs in and around the area.

What makes this house unique

After staying at dozens of different vacation rental homes we stopped and made a list of all the things we liked, and didn’t like. We picked this house with all of that in mind. We furnished the house with brand new furniture; all very good quality beds, mattresses, sheets and comforters. But the home is not cluttered like so many of the rental homes we stayed in. The kitchen is equipped with all the items you would find in your own kitchen, including quality knives, flatware, appliances, plates, wine glasses, napkins, towels, pots and pans, soap, detergent, and spices — everything you would need. There is a washer and dryer, iron, an ironing board, and bathroom supplies if you forget something. We want your family to enjoy yourselves and come back for many years. You can reach us at (404) 374-8523 to book one of the best vacations your family will ever have.

There is also a kayak launch area in the Preserve and in the other direction at Crystal River Watersports. Please use caution when entering/exiting kayaks or paddleboards onto the dock.

Wow our socks wear blown away 😁😁

  • 5 of 5

Well this was by far one of the best vacations of my life. My wife and I wanted a peaceful weekend and booked this house. For the first time in my life I felt more at home here than in my own house. Every single detail was taken care of. The house was perfect and the owner went completely out of his way to make sure we had the best vacation of our life. He was extremely generous and made us feel like family and not a renter. This house was perfect in every way possible with awesome views and wildlife. We relaxed in a heated pool then got on the kayakes to see manatees. This is the perfect way to spend your money and vacation. My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer. If you want the perfect place to stay and feel completely at home look no further! A++++++++++

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This home is quaint and is in an excellent location. We loved the access to the river and having the kayaks available was awesome. It was exactly what my husband I was looking for. The owners were very communicative and the house is equipped with anything you would ever need. It was like being at home except way better and without the chores! The neighborhood is very quiet and the house pool was perfect for an evening dip. We loved being a bikes ride distance to the nature preserve. I can't say enough how perfect our long weekend in Crystal River was and how great the owners have been.

Everything was lovely..the place was as pictured ..we did not use all the extras ie: bikes, kayaks boat, etc but they were there for our use..my husband brought his own bike from home and rode it everyday while, I loved the heated pool and got to swim in it each day..

Thanks to Chuck who responded to our phone call immediately about a small issue on the day of our arrival, and we were able to correct the problem...

We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked again for next year already...

There is so much to do in Crystal River. It is a family-friendly, nature focused, beautiful, peaceful area. If you enjoy kayaking you are welcome to use our 4 Kayaks w/ paddles & rod holders. You can also rent kayaks at Crystal River Watersports just minutes from the house. Kayaking and kayak fishing in the canal, the river and in Ozello is relaxing and fun! Feel free to use our 2 Sun bikes to ride all over Crystal River. The town is designed for bicycle-riding.
