About the owner: Dick grew up in Philadelphia, Jane grew up in St. Marys, PA.
We live in Washington DC and have been renting the condo on VRBO for seven years and love decorating, redecorating and have furnished this condo to provide a home-away-from home feeling. It must work because the majority of our guests come back year after year.
Why the Owner Chose Crystal Sands: Dick grew up on the water, and we both love to golf, so what can be better!
