  • Great


    Rod met us and showed us around the house and property. He was also very helpful on advising us on places to go and good restaurants. The house was very well kept and has an amazing scenery from the dock. Would book his place again.

  • Best rental property ever!


    The Ultimate Fisher Retreat was all that we had hoped for and more! The owner, Rod, greeted us and explained everything and lived on the property if you needed anything, he was so nice. The lake house was beautiful just like the photos showed. The house was the cleanest we had ever stayed at in a rental. The location was perfect, 6 miles from Crystal River and 10 miles to shopping and Rainbow springs. The area was quiet and off the main road which made for a relaxing vacation. Fishing is hard off the deck due to the weeds floating in, but use the row boat to get away from that. The deck and views were amazing! The only thing negative is that the toilets are very low, so if you have Back issues it maybe a problem. We had a great time and would love to return to this house in the near future. Thank you to the owners!

  • They canceled at the last moment


    I booked this trip in January for a stay beginning 6/21. On 6/19 I was canceled and it was due to the A/C going out. I have lived in Florida my whole life and A/C businesses are everywhere. All units, all parts can be found and installed in a day. I was given alternate postings, but not a one was anywhere near water. Not comparable at all. Finding nothing last minute, I switched to AB&B and was instantly booked in another place which turned out to be better overall. Vrbo will not be used again in any of my future bookings. Vrbo offered nothing to compensate the inconvenience. very bad experience.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Susan, we take it seriously when guests let us know that we missed the mark, and after sending your feedback to the homeowner, they’d like to share the following:
    - It's unfortunate that there was a significant AC issue right before your stay that led to the cancellation of your booking. While it's disappointing that you weren't able to enjoy the waterfront home as planned, we had to take prompt and thorough action to address the AC problem
    - It turned out to be a total AC replacement, including a new condensing unit, air handler, refrigerant lines, ductwork modifications, and the removal of the existing broken AC system
    - The AC contractor had to apply for a permit, order the new equipment, and schedule his team for the repairs so the whole process took three to four days to complete
    It's understandable that unexpected situations can arise, and it's essential to prioritize the safety and comfort of guests. Rest assured that we value your feedback and are confident that future guests will have an excellent stay now that the AC has been replaced with a brand-new system. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review!

  • Great place, clean, helpful friendly

    Fishing, relaxing, and watching nature unfold for the day, right where you stay. Crystal clear rivers and lush gardens nearby, along with miles of hiking and biking trails await all guests.
