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 2014

Why Marybeth Barcus chose Emerald Coast-Destin Area

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

I CARE about your family vacation!!!

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.

Amazing and peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED staying here and will definitely be back. The decor and design of this unit was so nicely done. The accommodations were perfect and the ocean view was to die for. This place deserves more than 5 stars that's for sure.

Excellent location on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo in an excellent location. There is plenty of dining within 5 miles of the condo. Grocery stores are also easily accessible.

The unit has been updated and decorated nicely. There are plenty of dishes and cookware. Having a washer/dryer in the condo is fantastic!

I was initially concerned about the condo being on ground level but this was never an issue. It was actually quite nice not having to climb stairs or ride an elevator.

Having beach service was definitely a plus. Being able to walk out the door with just a cooler and beach bag made things so much easier.

I wouldn't hesitate staying here again!

"Destin-ation Relaxation"

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I had the perfect girls getaway at Mary Beth's Crystal Sands condo. She has created a clean, comfortable, and updated beach home that provides all you need for a week of total relaxation. The beachfront view is amazing, and steps right out on the beautiful white sand and emerald green water. We took full advantage of the beach service and loved our time taking in the sun! The location is close to some of the best shopping and great restaurants. We now have two new Destin favorites that we will visit again; Tail Fins and LuLu's were both excellent. We look forward to returning and plan on staying here again. This was a special week filled with lots of laughter, great talks, good food, and the perfect place to make memories. Many thanks to Mary Beth for going above and beyond to provide her guests with the ultimate "Destin-ation Relaxation."

Beautiful unit! Could not have dreamed of a nicer getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute booking because my husband and I had only two days off. I fell in love with the pictures of the condo online and the VIEW!!! The finishes are very nice with quartz counters, Carrara marble in the bathrooms, porcelain hardwood-look tile throughout the entire unit, including the back porch, super comfortable king sized bed and everything you need in the kitchen for cooking. We loved the Keurig, but there is also a regular coffee maker if that's what you like. The unit has upscale furnishings and is very tastefully decorated with that beach-y feeling. The location is phenomenal; directly on the beach which can be heard and seen right from walking in the door. The private umbrella and chairs are nice and the beach is private so it's not over crowded. The immediate area has the look and feel of Key West and there is so much to do we immediately booked an entire week during the summer months. For recreational activities, there's jet skiing, paddle boarding, boat rides, parasailing, fishing, snorkeling and any other ocean activity you can think of. You can book these activities with just a short walk up the beach. If you're out early to mid-morning you can have yourself a free swim with the dolphins which swim a couple hundreds yards off the furthest sand bar. In town, a couple of blocks away, there is all kinds of shopping, restaurants, pubs, clubs, movies, miniature golf and a water-park within a few miles. It was really spectacular and affordable and we are doing another week here, rather than going to the Caribbean - it's THAT nice! The owner Marybeth is very nice and attentive to any questions you have and sh'e very prompt about getting back to you. You can tell she takes great pride in her property and knows exactly what you could possibly want or need while on vacation. It is clean, well decorated and very well maintained and modernized. I am a real estate appraiser in TN, so I am very particular about quality and finishes, and this unit was perfect. It is exactly how it looks in the VRBO listing. You will have a fantastic vacation when you book Unit 109A in Crystal Sands!!!
