About the property

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!

Enjoyed by all

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed the stay. Two adults and four teenagers, the house was big enough to give us all some space and then enjoy some game time in the den. Great location close to boat rental and outfitters for swimming with the manatee. Would definitely rent again.

Nice property in less busy area

  • 4 of 5

Property was as advertised. We saw manatees in the canal right off the dock. Plenty of room for our party of 10 adults. Crystal River has enough to keep us busy, especially the nature lovers, for a week. It was quite far from the Busch garden or Disney area which was ok for us. The men in the group liked the variety of fishing options. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Pool area was great but note the pool wasn't heated so it was too cold to use most days. There is a small sand beach within 10 miles which was good for those who wanted a beach. The flow of the house was ok. We had no issues with wifi or cable.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We went with a group of eight adults, all family. There was bedrooms and beds enough for all of us to have our own privacy. The table was big enough for all of us to eat together. Enough room in the living room for all of us. We rented a pontoon boat for two days and we were able to dock it at the house. Fantastic!! We caught many different fish and we got to see many Dolphins and Manatees. The pool was to cool to use, but it was nice. Thank Ron for sharing you home with us.

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!
