    Property was in a good location for doing all we had planned while in this part of Florida. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of towels and enjoyed the back yard fire pit.

  • Quiet Location But


    Well, this is place that definitely needs a lot more work. We enjoyed our stay since each day was out exploring. This is an older home which has been patched and repaired everywhere. The kitchen is no where near that bright in the pictures - very dim lighting with one ceiling light. The bathroom door trim has been nailed to the frame - but there is still enough gap to see out or in to the toilet by the door. My daughter found a lot of blonde hairs in her bedroom - she washed all sheets and bedspreads before using. Most of the bed covers, including mine, had holes or tears. Washer and dryer need to be switched in position - you can not easily access the dryer door when open. Large floor drain that is capped is a trip hazard and hurts if you are wearing sandals. The place is clean and there are plenty of nice kitchen ware and utensils. All are in good shape and look new. Air conditioning are all window units. The Marina across the street is not very active - at all. Just not much there. Down the road is Bird Creek beach which is awesome place to see sunset. You can walk up the road to great seafood restaurant. Easy drive to Crystal River. It is basic place to stay which needs a lot more work and improvements. The first day we were there, the local Water department placed a bulletin on the front door warning to not drink the water due to pressure drop in the area. Water pressure was fine everywhere in the unit - just used more of our bottled water. Just heads up, if you are using the cable and sign in using your home user name and password, be sure to sign out before you leave. There were past sign ons there allowing anyone to use them. I deleted those accounts.

  • Too expensive for what it was


    We weren’t able to use our first night so we only stayed for 1 night. The property is more or less how it looks in the pictures however less modern and for the price, it was underwhelming. Clearly some thought and heart was put into the property but it felt dated. It was overall pretty clean unless you looked at the windowsills under the air conditioning units. Or what looked like mold around some light fixtures. The air conditioning units were very loud. The sheets were polyester. The pillows were very uncomfortable, the mattresses were covered with plastic covers which made noise every time we moved and made an awful sleeping experience. The closet door in the guest room was broken. Some of the lights in the house didn’t work. Or had no instructions. We arrived in the evening and were not able to use the laundry room or the cute attachment area to the house due to no lights. One of the shutters in the living room was broken. There was a bit of a smell. If we were paying a service fee and cleaning fee having to take out our own garbage and strip our own beds didn’t seem ok. The area was more trailer park than not. Would not come back.

  • We loved the Stay!!


    We were a family of 4 and we all agree on how clean and nice this place was.

    It has everything you need.

    We came with our boat and enjoy the sea and fishing.

    We will definitely come back!!

    Thank you!
