Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband built this home so we could enjoy our own place at the beach. We realized that it was such a nice home and nice community that we wanted others to be able to enjoy as well. We have been renting since 2006, and it is filled with vacationers every summer.

Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
This is a great place to spend your vacation. Not too many homes rent in this neighborhood, and it is somewhat secluded from the rest of the traffic on the peninsula. Therefore it is a very family friendly beach. Very wide spanse between the surf and the dunes so plenty of places to park, drive and let the kids play.
