Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Crystal Shores - Crystal River Paradise

5 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Welcome to the river house! Our home is located minutes from King and Three sisters springs and depending on the time of year our backyard has entertained pods of manatees, dolphins and otters to mention a few. Numerous activities for everyone fishing is some of the best in FL inshore for reds or offshore for grouper, scalloping during the summer, manatee watching during the winter. If you would like to play golf, shop, bike or just take it easy around the pool we've got that to. Also because we are centrally located its an easy 1 1/2 hour drive to Disney, Universal, Epcot and Sea World in Orlando and Busch Gardens in Tampa. Homosassa State Park is just 10 minutes away and is a fantastic little natural zoo. Rainy days:( don't worry we have you covered, movie theater, laser tag and mini golf close by. Many great restaurant choices as well.

The kitchen is well appointed stainless steel appliances, and includes pots, pans, utensils (for 12), flatware, serving trays, coffee maker, toaster.

Pool has lounge chairs and table along with rafts, water toys.

Master bedroom is nicely appointed and has a great screened in porch. One of my favorite things is opening the doors and listen to the mullet jump in the canal on nice crisp evenings! The second master is huge and is also nicely appointed with TV and exercise equipment.

About Ryan Robinson

We are a wonderful family that has created many memories here in Crystal River.

Ryan Robinson purchased this house in 2011

Why Ryan Robinson chose Crystal River

Our family fell in love with this home for the privacy, proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, and the beautiful springs that make Crystal River famous! We have been coming here since we were kids and decided to buy or own little slice of paradise, unfortunately work has dictated that we move but we are not ready to give up our dream home just yet so we have decided to keep it and share it with all of you. Check us out you won't be disappointed!

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property. It has five nice bedrooms with two master suites. Great amenities, nice TV lounge, pool table & pool. The kitchen is large and there is even a second refrigerator in the laundry room (washer & dryer) for overflow. The owners were great to work with. Loved it!

Large, family friendly property.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a week's stay in Crystal River and found the property to be very accommodating for our two families. The house has many amenities that accommodate children and adults alike. We had 10 in our party and we never felt like we were stepping on each other. The house is minutes from King's Bay and the gulf. The pool table, exercise equipment, large tv room, pool, kayaks, xbox system kept the kids entertained when we weren't out on our boats. The dock had plenty of room for our two boats. We all agreed we would stay there again in the future.

Fun on the water!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. Property was clean and provides everything we needed. Owner was very prompt in responding with any questions we had before and during our stay. This is the second time we have rented this particular home and would rent it again. Highly recommended, good for large family our two families to reduce renral costs. Kayaks , pool, large kitchen space, pool table and plenty of room to dock our boats....all great factors for our friends and family that enjoyed a week long stay.

Perfect vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing for everything we needed. It is spacious and comfortable for large groups. With 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and a living room upstairs and 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and living room downstairs, everyone had their own space to relax when we were not out together on the water. The dock was great for evening fishing and keeping a boat all week long. You can quickly and easily exit to the main river even in low tide. Boats can also be rented from Twin Rivers Marina. The pool table in the FL room and the outdoor pool area provided hours of fun and relaxation for everyone. The owners were quick to address any questions and made us feel welcome. Thanks Ryan.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for 3 nights/4 days (Thursday - Sunday) with 6 adults and 3 kids and couldn't have been happier. The house was amazing and like many of the other reviews indicated, it is huge! There are two different wings of the home that has bedrooms which is very convenient with large families/groups and in the center of the home is a dining room, a large kitchen and pantry area that were very spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, cutlery and other items you might need. The boat dock (the kids fished everyday but didn't catch anything. Fairly certain that was because they couldn't be quiet) and two kayaks were equally amazing and we used the kayaks every day of the trip even when it was raining.

The only complaint we had is that we had to leave. Thanks again Ryan for letting us borrow your house for a days!

Welcome to our river house! We have been visiting the Crystal river /Homosassa area since we were kids and a couple of years ago decided to turn our weekend and vacation trips into a full time residence but due to a job transfer its time to move on. I tell my wife everyday we live where people vacation how cool is that! You will truly fall in love with our house and the area, fish, scallop, dive until your heart is content or just enjoy relaxing river tours. Bring your own boat or rent. Many great restaurants one of our favorites is the freezer!
