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!

  • Amazing trip to florida💜


    This house and Florida experience was amazing! Truly could have stayed here for another week, ok, let’s be honest, another month! Perfect house for a family, girl trip, or gathering! The home was beautifully decorated, all accessories you will need to prepare home meals, and all 3 bedrooms were perfect. BBQ on the back porch overlooking the water was epic! The location was perfect, quiet neighborhood , and at the end of a court. Plus the trail network was close for running or early morning photography. February was perfect weather for us all! Recommend swimming with the manatees and jet boat ride in Crystal River! Amazing!!! Thank you for this home and memory
