Location Details

This property offers an unbeatable location right on the canals leading to Crystal River, complete with a 20-foot boat dock and 2 kayaks! Launch your boat less than a mile away at the Days Inn or the public launch for a fun day on the water.

If you're new to the fishing scene, join along on a fishing excursion with one of the Live Bait recommended guides. Visit during the summertime to take part in the Scallop Season!

Fed by springs, Crystal River is aptly named, with crystal-clear water throughout. Visit Three Sisters Springs or Crystal River Wildlife Refuge to search for manatees, and to Hunter Springs Park to sunbathe on the beach!

Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged to drive 1 mile over to Crystal River Archaeological State Park and Crystal River Preserve State Park, both home to multiple trails for exploration.

If you're up for a day trip, drive less than 2 hours to reach Tampa or Orlando - home to dozens of theme parks, including Walt Disney World!

  • So Clean!


    This was perfectly as advertised. So clean and had everything you could possibly need! We will likely be back because it was so nice! We kept our boat in the water all week and the dock was great and only took a few minutes to get out to the ocean to go scalloping!

  • Perfect Stay


    Great property and fully stocked. Upon entering it was obvious how clean the place was - this was true throughout all the rooms. Noticeably one of the cleanest vacation rentals we’ve stayed in. Location was great and my family loved being able to dock our boat out back and use with ease throughout our stay. Layout was perfect for our family of 4 and my kids loved being able to eat on the back porch. This is one I would definitely book again!!

  • Awesome house


    The house is very well laid out and spacious. It was relaxing and we loved seeing the manatees swim through the canal and we enjoyed fishing off the dock. Highly recommend!!

  • Very nice


    The inside is very nice, the outside could use a little more attention . There were a lot of weeds in all of the pavers and made it seem sloppy . The cable equipment did not work and we went a few days without tv ( only 1 in entire house) I did contact the property manager and she did everything she could to help us even to buy a new tv but it was not needed because we just needed to reboot the cable box. It happens every time you shut off the tv so a bit annoying.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Kerri, thanks for taking the time to leave this review! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay overall! The homeowner would like to share the following: While we do have an ongoing yard service that manages and keeps the yard in good order, we have a new yard service to maintain the property. We are addressing the cable issue with Spectrum Cable Company so this issue does not recur for future guests. We appreciate you choosing 'Live Bait' for your stay in Crystal River.

  • Peaceful stay


    The house is great and has everything to make tour stay easy.

    The kayaks are really a plus to discover the river
