  • Crystal River Vacation


    We came from St.Augustine,Florida to come visit Crystal River for some of our Spring Break. The location was nice. We loved having kayaks, place to fish from right in our back yard and the fire pit for the evening.

  • Hidden Bungalow buried in nature with minimal amenities.


    Small bungalow sits on heavily wooded lot with great baywater view. Decorated in fun retro 50s style. 2 baths recently remodeled with rainshower. Super WiFi.


    Missing lightbulbs.

    Smart thermostat constantly defaulting to 62°.

    Freezer icemaker broken. Bagged ice was provided instead.

    Dining utensils not clean. No napkins, no clips to close food bags, no plastic wrap, no aluminum foil or plastic ziplock bags.

    Fluffy towels but only 1 washcloth per bathroom per entire stay.

    The bungalow provided a fun getaway for our group of 4 nature loving adults.

  • Very first guests


    We had the luck to find this lovely place and be the first guests to book! We enjoyed the calm relaxed area. Everything available was top notch. The coffee, tea, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, towels, linen's were all A++.The birding was amazing, White Ibis, King Fishers, Osprey, Bald Eagles, Black Vultures, Fly Catchers, not to mention the beautiful and vocal neighborhood Peacock pair!! (we had a pair when we were newly weds 33 years ago! Loved having them...The host had the missing propane delivered and they set up the brand new Weber new grill for us! Super nice crew! We had a blast Kayaking the area.Made some suggestions to the host of additional items that would make the stay even better.
