Why Lucy Barnes chose Crystal River
Sawgrass is a unique and quaint resort area with tons of nature. Built over the saw grass 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.

Brought our boat and kids and had a great time! Rooms were clean, was nice to be able to do laundry, and all the permanent neighbors were so fun to hang out with. Property manager, Tim? Was great. Helpful in every way. We will be back for sure! Bailey and Briar enjoyed the pool!
Enjoyed our weekend stay. We will be back.
Very unique and peaceful place!! Just what we needed!
Cozy, quaint place. Owners as well as neighbors were very kind. Will definitely visit again. Thank you Miss Lucy!
Great location for a family getaway!
This was a wonderful place to enjoy nature but still be within a short distance of everything Crystal River has to offer. Just down the road from the marina where you can rent boats. This was so convenient! Would have loved to stay longer.
Love this place
I loved it here people were nice an we loved the area we were in. We will be back for sure.
Wonderful Stay At Sawgrass Landing
My wife and I stayed at this townhouse for a long weekend just this past week. My son, his wife, and in-laws rented three other units in the same complex. We had a great time. This is a group of approximately 12 townhouses situated around a pool and canal with a private dock for owners/renters boats. The location was fantastic with about a 15 minute boat east down Crystal River to Kings Bay, and a 15 minute boat ride west to the Gulf of Mexico.
The property is nestled alongside a canal in the middle of native marsh vegetation. There is a decent size marina within a 5 minute walk. The pool area is great and it has plenty of space to accommodate everyone.
Each townhouse is individually owned and therefore they are all a little different with respect to decorations, furniture, and lighting.
While I did enjoy our unit and would return, I have to honestly say that I feel it could use a little freshening up. The units my son and his in-laws stayed in were a little more updated with a fresher, brighter look. All of the townhouses I went into were the same size and configuration as ours.
Our hosts were wonderful and very accommodating, they made us feel welcome and the check-in/check-out process was very simple and straightforward.
Overall, I would return to this little townhouse development in a heartbeat. With a great location, easy access to the water as well as restaurants and bars in Crystal River area, it had everything we needed including a peaceful nature setting.
Thanks for review. Upstairs bath is getting a do over with tub removal and walk in shower added w/ tile floors. Will be freshly repainted shortly. Hard to work on it when it stays rented. Thanks for your well thought out comments. Hope you come back soon.
