Your Crystal River Home Away from Home.

We treat our guests very well! We want to give you an experience that will make you feel that this property is "your place" in Crystal River.

This large 3 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront home sleeps 10 people, and 14 can dine in the gourmet kitchen. The gorgeous, L shaped heated Saltwater pool overlooks the wide deep water canal. Dolphins and manatee come up to the dock and you can launch our kayaks, canoe or SUP paddle board (all included in the rental rate) right from the dock. You can also tie up and keep your boat at our dock during your stay. There is a boat launch just 3 minutes away. Both of our rental homes are equipped with Pack and Play's for out guests with infants.

The beautiful sunroom w/ a 42 in. flatscreen TV overlooks the pool, water and large floating dock. Two very nice SUN bicycles are also included in the rental rate along with fishing gear and other water floatables. A charcoal grill and a portable fish cleaning station is also included. Save $$ by not having to rent kayaks, canoes, bikes, etc.!

RENTAL RATE: $1,079/wk plus tax (7 days/6 nights) or $179night w/ 3 night minimum plus $150 cleaning fee and 100% refundable $500 security deposit. *MONTHLY RATE: $3,999 plus tax, cleaning fee and 100% refundable security deposit. THIS IS A NO SMOKING PROPERTY.

There are large Sailfin Catfish, Sheepshead fish and Red Snapper to be caught right from the dock. You can also catch freshwater bass and trap blue crabs off the dock. Feel free to use our 3 sit on top fishing kayaks with rod holders, paddles and PFDs, our two Sun Bicycles to ride to the mall or state park preserve, our SUP paddle board, and our canoe to get you to 3 sister's springs.

The front and side yards are large and filled with palm trees. There is a large 2 car garage with a work bench and plenty of storage area.There is room in the driveway for two vehicles or a boat trailer or RV.

This dog-friendly waterfront home is located on a family-friendly street in the coveted north end of Crystal River near the mall, restaurants and the downtown area. It is 3 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.

The home is furnished with good quality (all new) furniture. A queen size sleeper sofa and loveseat, and a trundle bed that sleeps two overlooks the pool and water. There are newer Kenmore Elite stainless steel appliances, comfortable pillowtop bedding on all beds, linens, bathrobes, towels, dishes, a toaster oven, a convection oven, a griddle, grill, fish cleaning station and many more accessories too numerous to list.

The kitchen is stocked with good-quality cookware needed to prepare family meals. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and its own large bathroom. Both the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have queen beds.There is also another full bathroom with tub located between the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. We also have an inflatable Queen size Serta Sleeper matress available (when used, the home sleeps 12 people). The flooring in the living room and common areas is beautiful ceramic tile making clean-up easy and fast .

There are five new flat-screen TVs; a 60 in. in the livingroom, a 52 in. in the master bedroom, a 42” in the sunroom, and a 32” in the 2nd & 3rd bedrooms. Wi-Fi and basic cable TV are included along with DVD/CD players.

This family-friendly home is located on a deep canal with Gulf access. The canal is 14 ft. deep at high tide and 5 ft deep at low tide. VERY large boats access this canal easily. There is one bridge going out to the Gulf but it is 40 ft high so NO height restrictions. The house is less than 4 miles from the scalloping grounds (this house is also 4 miles closer to the Gulf than If you stay at a home on Kings Bay).

The Sunroom (w/TV) 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 minutes from the Gulf of Mexico by boat (its a no wake zone in the River). Two nice beaches including Fort Island Beach is nearby. A large public pool with a skate park is also nearby (behind the airport).

Beautiful and peaceful Crystal River has activities for the whole family and is the only place where it is legal to swim with the manatee, 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.

*Please Note: The pool spa at this property is not a hot tub. The spa does not heat up above the temperature of the pool and the spa waterfall is not currently functional.

You can rent at a very affordable rate by the night, week or month.

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 2015

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, bathrobes 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.

"It doesn't get any better than this".

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home is well-maintained and well stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. In spite of having an unusually cool week, we thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. The neighborhood is quiet and the location is convenient.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, daughter, son and I had an amazing time in this house. My brother in law brought over his boat and we had easy access to the Crystal River and Gulf. My children swam in the pool everyday and my husband fished off the dock with his coffee every morning. The house is equipped with anything that you would need during your stay. The pictures and description do not do this house justice. We always rent houses on all of our vacations and this is by far the nicest one we have stayed at. Our extended family lives about 30 mins to an hour away and this house served as an amazing meeting place for boat trips and dinners. I would recommend this house to anyone who enjoys relaxation and nature. We had four Manatees swim up the canal and three dolphins follow our boat in from the gulf one night. Can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was here and we will be back for sure!!

Beautiful house, fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

After spending a week at Disney in Orlando we found real magic staying at this beautiful place in Crystal River. We were 3 families with small children, the house had everything and more that we needed - a well equipped kitchen, pool toys for the kids and the kayaks/canoes/fishing equipment provided was truly above and beyond. We enjoyed fishing from the dock, took the kayaks out and spotted turtles, alligator, armadillo, deer, many birds and got up close to dolphins playing in the river. An unforgettable experience for us all. Thank you!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Crystal River. The house is great with everything you could need. My kids loved the pool. It was a really relaxing stay for my husband and I. I was disappointed we didn't see any manatees, but we saw several turtles and a small alligator. If we decide to go back to Crystal River, we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. So sorry you did not see manatees on this trip. They can be somewhat elusive at times. The secret is to look for swirls in the water caused by their tails. Once you get used to seeing the swirls you will see manatee a lot! Please come back again. You all were wonderful guests.

Nice relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spend 8 days at this house and it worked out perfect for our family of 4. I have a 2 and a 3 year old and the smaller pool worked very well for us. We of course did not get to use the kayaks or canoe, kids are too young. They have a high chair and a pack and play for use.
