About Kami Suggs

My husband, Brad & I live in Fruitland Park, Fl about 1 1/2 hrs. from the property. We love jumping over there every chance we get to go fishing, scalloping & diving. We are both Scuba certified & love all the springs in the area that are nationally known for their manatee. We love to travel & go to the Keys every year with a large group of friends. We both grew up right here in Central Florida and are both in love with the outdoors.

Kami Suggs purchased this house in 2013

Why Kami Suggs chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

There is so much to do, so close. There are Manatee and Dolphin Tours right in Crystal River. You can bring your own boat or find many available Captains close by. You can fish local for trout or redfish or go out deep sea fishing. Our favorite is scalloping in the summertime - its an underwater shell hunt the whole family can enjoy. There is a public boat ramp just 1 mile around the corner and a quiet beautiful beach with restroom facilities just 5 miles down the road at the end of Fort Island Trail.

What makes this house unique

This house has something to offer all year round. There are so many convenient features. Not yet mentioned is the Winn Dixie Grocery Store right at the end of the road, several kayak & canoe rental stores & even an Anytime Fitness close by. The Plantation Golf Resort is just 4 mls. away & Encore Campground is also within 1 mile.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time on our family scalloping vacation. Loved the house, the updated kitchen was very nice. The kitchen could be stocked a little better. Another baking tray, some larger bowls for mixing things or salads. We specifically asked if there was a grill before we arrived because we knew we wouldn't be eating out. We were told yes and upon arrival checked out the grill and it was a rusted mess. No biggie though, a quick trip to winndixie and we bought a little charcoal grill (that we left there). Over all the house is very clean and the location is great. Was a nice boat ride for us out to the scalloping grounds. Hope to rent here again next year!

Relaxing place...perfect for us

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at this house. The location was very good and the new kitchen was great. This house has a ton of potential and was definitely worth the price. We had a blast with the board games, although I remember now why I hate Yahtzee.
