About the Owner
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.

This condo was the best place we have ever stayed for our Anniversary....and we have been many different places. Lucy the owner is sweet and accommodating. We did have to leave a day early because of a very bad storm that came thru but Lucy was kind enough to offer a free night without me even asking if we come back. We will for sure be back next year if not before. Thanks so much.
BEST BEST BEST! Best Property and Best Owner!
Lucy was kind enough to rent this at a moment's notice due to us evacuating the East Coast due to Hurricane Matthew. We were so happy with this condo, we will return again (but not under the same circumstances!) In this condo, your not just on the water, you are over it too! We enjoyed watching the tide come in and watching the herons and egrets fishing for dinner right out the door! There is a deck overlooking the dock and pool and that's where the birds fly in to eat dinner! This condo has all the amenities of home plus more! Downstairs is a full kitchen with granite counters and sofa bed. The upstairs loft has a king bed and a full bathroom. EVERYTHING you need is there! It's fabulous! There is even a washer/dryer unit downstairs! We have a small shih tzu and he really enjoyed the walk around the complex on the ramps. We were all very comfortable. This condo is SPOTLESS! Very neat and clean and wonderfully decorated. Thank You Lucy for everything.
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
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 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.
