Crystal Beach house description

Tiny Bubbles - whether in the hot tub or your champagne glass - a perfect escape from the daily routine.

Our house has 3 bedrooms- the master has a king bed with twin futon, 2nd bedroom has a queen bed and queen futon, and 'the kids room' has a double/twin bunk bed and double futon. There is a queen sleeper sofa and a twin sleeper sofa in the living room.

The large covered deck overlooking the canal is enjoyed by all either for relaxing/reading. Nap on the ample chairs on the decks! Glide yourself to sleep! Continue on the deck to sit at the table for cards or a meal under the umbrella. Finally there is the hot tub seating 6 with a sun bathing deck over it.

Watch the sunset or drink your morning coffee on the north side deck. Enjoy the overhead view of the kids playing on the basketball court down below.

The downstairs screened-in party room was the addition after the hurricane to replace the garages lost. It features a bar area including sink and full refrigerator. Custom benches encircle the room and there are 2 family picnic benches, and games such as foosball,darts, and ring toss. A satellite TV sits on the bar for the sport enthusiasts to watch their games or for some Sirius music. Just outside the door is a custom Pitts & Spitts smoker/grill perfect for smoking all those delicious Texas meats and grilling 'shrimps on the barbie'.

There is also a fishing table on the side of house with a deep sink to wash the fish you catch. Also, the outdoor shower is good to rinse off that sand and salt water from the beach.

If you enjoy lying around after a long walk on the beach, the living room and master bedroom have a Dish TV Network. The couches and recliner in the living room are perfect napping couches.

The spacious master bedroom has a very comfy king size bed and twin futon with a a flat screen TV with Dish satellite and DVD player. The master bedroom also has it own private bathroom, closet(twin daybed) and locking door from the rest of the house.

Unlike some many other rentals, we have provided all the linens and bath towels you will need. Beds are already made. Just please bring your own beach towels!

Every morning we beach comb to see what the waves have brought in overnight! The beach is full of beautiful shells to take home or to make arts and crafts with. The sand is ideal for that great sand castle you've been wanting to build.

There is plenty of bird watching if you like that, some of the birds we still have not identified! Watch as they fly over the canal or visit nearby High Island Bird Sanctuary.

We want you to enjoy it as much as we do.

Come and enjoy lots of fun in the sun. Our home is great for family vacations or private get-a-ways. The renter must be at least 25 years old.

We are so excited to share our beach home to families that will respect and appreciate it like we do.

Thank you for visiting our website!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: John & Joy live in Houston. John is a retired school teacher from Fort Bend ISD and Joy finally decided to stop being that traveling consultant and has joined John in retirement. We have 3 children, 10 grandchildren, one great grandchild and love to travel. You can see some of our travels in the art work in Tiny Bubbles.

              Why the Owner Chose Crystal Beach:
              Joy was born in Southern California and grew up loving the beach. After spending time at a friend's cabin in Crystal Beach we decided to look around for one of our own. Joy knew it was the one with its special touches and spacious rooms and deck.We were so lucky to purchase Tiny Bubbles in May 2008, right before Hurricane Ike hit in September 2008. It was so well built by the previous owner that she withstood the storm and was still standing, unlike so many of our neighbors cabins.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Tiny Bubbles features a beautiful stained glass window in the front entryway which came from an old church in East Texas. One look at that special touch and we had to have the beach house. To be able to sit on the deck and watch the birds flying by, see turtles in the canal, and relax in the hot tub are the special highlights.
