Crystal River Village is a beautiful 55+ gated manufactured home community located in Crystal River, Florida about 35 miles west of Ocala, 70 miles north of Tampa, and within 10 miles of the Gulf of Mexico. This 235 home community is a diverse neighborhood offering a variety of activities for all residents to enjoy. It has the largest clubhouse of any 55+ gated community in Citrus County and has a large swimming pool, five shuffle board courts, two horseshoe pits, and two sizeable ponds for bass fishing and a Pickel Ball court. Benches are placed by the ponds for comfort in taking a breather, or watching a Florida sunset. A short walk will take you to most of life’s necessities, including banks, churches, dentists, doctors, restaurants, specialty shops, and a supermarket. A championship golf course, well kept tennis courts, and several parks and recreation areas, all open to the public, are within a half mile. No other 55+ gated community in this area is as close to the beach, boat ramps, good fishing, and water sports. Crystal River Village is the closest 55+ community to the famous 3 Sisters Spring, where in the winter months, manatees can be seen in abundance, you can actually swim with them. Access to 3 Sisters Spring can be made easily by pontoon, kayak or simple walking a boardwalk to observe them.
Residents come from all across the country and all walks of life with different backgrounds and varied reasons for choosing this Village as home. Most are retired professionals with a broad range of skills and talents which they willingly and enthusiastically share for the common good. And we have one common goal, to live with dignity in peace and harmony. As your President, I constantly strive to help attain that goal. Membership in our Homeowners Association (HOA) is at an all-time high. Only through a strong, highly motivated HOA can residents be assured of fair and equitable treatment by Park Owners and Management. HOA leadership works constantly to make our lives safer, healthier, and happier. We have programs and speakers of interest at the clubhouse to keep us informed on current events and topics that affect our lives. We have much to be thankful for and much to offer those who chooses to make this Village their home. New residents are welcomed with a smile, offered a helping hand, and soon become an integral part of our Village. I am always open to your suggestions on ways to improve our community. Crystal River Village is a place where peace and harmony abide.
