About Lucy Barnes

My husband and I are both Natives of the area. We have raised our 3 boys in Crystal River and have enjoyed all the nature Citrus County has to offer. We have 9 Grandchildren and have enjoyed the condo many times and entertained them in the pool and off in the boat fishing.. A great place to relax and enjoy the waterfront activities. I am a realtor with Re/Max and have been an agent since 1979. My spouse is a Charter Fishing Guide following the footsteps of his Father and Grandfather. Retired from Withlacoochee River Electric and now doing what he enjoys.

Lucy Barnes purchased this condo in 1995

Why Lucy Barnes chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Sawgrass is a unique and quaint resort area with tons of nature. Built over the sawgrass with units that are all connected with boardwalks. Small complex of 15 duplex condos. Private decks on each one with a community pool, community boat dock (plenty of space for all) and fish cleaning sink.

What makes this condo unique

Units are midway between King's Bay & Gulf of Mexico. Just minutes to the greatest fishing and scalloping ever. Located at Salt River & Crystal River around the corner to Twin River's Marina.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are exactly how this property is! The condo was really clean when we arrived. With booking and leaving the condo, Lucy responded quickly. I'm sure if we had any troubles, she would help immediately. The only problem we had was finding which condo is ours because they were marked next to the doors with small numbers, but we found it after figuring out the number pattern. We enjoyed staying here because it was always a 10-15 minute drive from where we wanted to go. It was the perfect size for us for our 2nd anniversary trip. If we ever make another trip down, I will definitely want to book this place.

The pictures don't do this place justice! The back porch is literally on the water and the pool at the same time! Plenty of room to dock your boat, minutes away from twin rivers marina and the gulf. When you dock, clean your fish right there. Everything is provided, Power, water and beautiful scenery. The locals are also very friendly and make you feel right at home (and may give you some fishing honey holes!!!). The owner is extremely helpful and answered any questions promptly. My family and I will be back (not soon enough). Highly recommended!!

Very special place

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in Crystal River. Very close to marina and boat ramp. I have been vacationing here since I was a little girl 30 yrs ago, but haven't been in about 15 yrs or so. I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the place was kept. My kids enjoyed it immensely. We look forward to coming back again and again. Thank you!

Great Time

  • 4 of 5

Great access to open water! Really enjoyed our week of scalloping and fishing. It was convenient to leave the boat in the water right at the dock. It was close enough we could always keep an eye on it. Small community was nice, so wasn't a ton of people. Would definitely come again...had a great, relaxing time.

Great Scalloping Stay

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful little condo for our family to enjoy a scalloping trip in Crystal River. Condo was clean, had everything we needed. Perfect for a family of 3. Nice, relaxing pool just out the door. Very refreshing after a day on the water. Dockage was available but we were a little concerned with the depth for our new boat, however Twin Rivers Marina is just a stone's throw away and had slips available.

Owner's Response: Adrian So glad you enjoyed your trip and found everything to be comfortable and up to par. The canal is for flats boats or bay boats......all should be shallow draft. The marina is a plus as it is within walking distance to the condo. It even has rental boats and kayaks.

Nice, Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely rental owned by a wonderful local couple. The owners are 4th generation Crystal River natives who take great pride in their properties. I have rarely found a cleaner home and it reflects the owner's pride of ownership in their own Crystal River residence. It's also nice to know the owners live nearby in case one needs anything while staying at the home. Too often, vacation homeowners live out of state and if something were to need immediate attention it could cause a problem and ruin the stay. Not so with this property. It is very clean, comfortable, and well-maintained! I also like that the husband is a Crystal River fishing guide. I enjoyed going out fishing with someone who knows the area so well. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to enjoy a nice, relaxing and peaceful time in this quaint little city.
