About Marybeth Barcus

I live in Destin full time. I have owned rental homes and understand what a person would like while they are on their vacation. Our time is so precious now a days with our busy schedules so I want to make sure your time away from your busy schedule is very special.

Marybeth Barcus purchased this condo in 2012

Why Marybeth Barcus chose Crystal Beach

Living here in Destin provided me an inside view of the better homes to purchase. Crystal Sands is a very safe and quiet resort property. It is convenient to all the shops and restaurants and you can walk right out to the beach from your unit. There is plenty of parking at this property too which is another nice plus.

What makes this condo unique

It's directly on the beach and we spent a lot of money to make this a very nice beach home for our family and to those who would like to stay here.

Staying here was like going to a family members home.

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home! Condo was very well maintained and stocked. Beautifully furnished and all of the furniture was comfortable and not worn to bits like most condos. Didn't seem like a rental. We are already planning another trip here but will probably have to book early because this is a gem!!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best condo we've stayed in! Fully stocked kitchen made it easy to cook a variety of meals. Plenty of towels and extra linen available. The back patio quickly became our favorite chill spot. You can't beat the view! We enjoyed our time here and can't wait to come back!

Right on the BEACH!

  • 4 of 5

This was our third year in a row visiting Destin and staying at the Crystal Sands Condos. Our family of five really enjoyed our stay with minor complaints. The beach is right out your door and couldn't of been more convienient. The condo had more than enough room for our family with the fold out couch sleeping our oldest child. The kitchen refrigerator appeared new and the countertop was very nice. The dishware that was supplied was also nice. The condo had two toilets and one shower with a washer/dryer combo unit. While we don't do much in Destin, the boardwalk is always fun to visit and their are plenty of restaurants to eat at. Minor complaints were that the condo wasnt supplied with toilet paper or trash bags. Pillows, while plenty, weren't at all comfortable. Lastly, we didn't receive a response from the owner after emailing them a few days before our trip with questions about supplies etc. Overall though, this condo was the most up to date and well furnished unit we had stayed in at Crystal Sands. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Hey Patrick! It sounds like you really enjoyed your trip! We know how these vacations are life long memories for families. I remember my family beach trips as a child still! I wanted to mention on the other points you wrote on the review: I sent info on May 26 that included most of the info you would need. I didn't see any other email requesting info on supplies. I went back to look into this and didn't see anything. And I know pillows are a very personal thing. I traveled all over the world and I would see people walk on the airplane with their pillows and I always found that funny. I suspect those were the guests who liked a specific type of pillow. I try and offer a variety of pillow types in hopes there will be one you like. WIth regard to toilet paper and trash bags, I always provide a roll of toilet paper in each bathroom as well as a starter trash bag and one extra. I supply a roll of paper towels too. After this, the guests provides those items. This is a standard thing at most of the rentals. I also supply all the linens as well as the hand soap, dish soap and dish washing detergent. I try and provide very nice hand soaps and dish soap too. As I try to exceed my guests expectations, there are those few times I don't. My sincere apologies for the minor issues you had. I hope you were still able to create those special life long family beach trip memories! My best!!!!
