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

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.

Great Family House! Something for everyone.

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge with lots of space for all. The house's location on the river was great for guests with boats looking to explore kings bay, go fish in the salt river or head out for a day of scalloping. The pool was great after a long day out on the scalloping grounds. The owners were very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this house.

This was our first time renting this home for our week long scalloping trip. The location of the home was great!!! The house is very spacious as well. We had plenty of room for our group of 8. However, they need to hire a new housekeeper!! The place was supposed to be clean and ready for us to arrive at 4pm. The bedding looked as if maybe it wasn't changed from the previous occupants. The sheets were stained and even had some sort of food stuck on them still. There were candy wrappers & ice cream wrappers left on the floor in the upstairs master bedroom. Along with dust bunnies the size of the palm of my hand under all the furniture. Which was a nightmare with my son having asthma. The kitchen counter is tiled and the grout is supposed to be white, BUT it was a nasty brown!! It looked like it hasn't been cleaned in quite some time. I had to clean the counters before even thinking about placing anything on them!! The kitchen was a nightmare!!!! Upon opening the cabinets, we immediately noticed the roach droppings everywhere!!! In every single cabinet!!! When opening the cabinet with the plates and bowls, we were greeted by 2-3 large roaches every time!!! The icing on the cake was when I myself opened the silverware drawer and saw 3 large roaches running around on the utensils!!! I was completely disgusted!!! We kept all food (even dry goods) in the refrigerator out of fear that the roaches would get into our food as well. Most of all the t.v remotes & all the xbox remote control batteries were dead. There is exercise equipment available but of course the batteries on them were completely dead as well! Omg!!! The grill looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years! The food and debris that was on it was so thick. We were gonna try and burn it off and clean it but then opted not to even waste our time on it. There were several items throughout the house that were broken and just left there instead of being removed or replaced. Broken dining room chair unable to even be used, lamp that had a broken light bulb still in it and plugged in, broken curtain rod, several holes in the ceiling of the game room. Either blood or feces was smeared on the laundry room door and not cleaned off. This home has a lot of potential. Pest control and a very thorough cleaning is a must!!! I can say that we definitely were not happy with the home!!! Especially for the price that we paid!!! We will not be recommending this home to anyone!!!!

We loved our stay. Didn't know what we were getting into. Newbies to crystal river. Location was amazing. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house. Everything was great. House was huge never felt crammed. The kids loved the pool and dock. The kayaks are great. Parking was plentiful. We took the boat, which was 26 ft. The boat docked fine. We did scalloping and fishing. Took trips to the springs. A guy on a jet ski lead us out to the scalloping area. Super nice people at crystal river. The house had everything we needed. Definitely one of the best rental we ever stayed at!!

This house was great for our group of 9! So much room to spread out. We had everything we needed.

The pool was great after a day in the saltwater and the docks fit all 3 of our boats. Parking was a little tight, but we were able to fit 3 trucks and one car in the drive, and there was offsite secure parking for our trailers provided by the owner.

The owner was attentive and responsive and we were all extremely satisfied!

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!
