One of the notable things about Crystal Bay is that it is one of the quietest neighborhoods in America, according to NeighborhoodScout's exclusive analysis and quantitative rating of quietness. When you are here, you will find it to be very quiet. If quiet and peaceful are your cup of tea, you may have found a great place for you.
In addition, despite all of the residential real estate here in the Crystal Bay neighborhood, NeighborhoodScout has discovered that much of it is vacant. In resort or second-home vacation areas, this naturally occurs because homes and apartments are seasonally occupied, and empty for a portion of the year. In non-vacation or resort areas, however, this can be an indicator of property abandonment or a weak real estate market. The vacancy rate here is 48.3%, which is higher than 98.4% of all U.S. neighborhoods.

Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.

home to work (one way) of less than fifteen minutes. This is a higher
proportion of residents enjoying a short trip to work than NeighborhoodScout
found in 97.1% of U.S. neighborhoods. Less time commuting
means more time for other things in life.
