Crystal Beach house description

''A Site To Sea'' is perfect for your next vacation or weekend get-a-away.

It is absolutely the closest house to the beach anywhere! Great for surfers and fisherman and the whole family. You will love the sheer magic of the beach!

Our house has a spectacular 260 degree view! Completely private desk, both in front of the house and off the master bedroom.

Relax on the covered or uncovered decks directly facing the ocean. Nap on the ample chairs on the decks to the roar of the ocean! Watch the sunbathers on the beach. Rock yourself to sleep in the rocker.

This beautiful new home, built after we lost our first home to hurricane Ike. This home sleeps up to 8 adults in real beds. There is a queen bed convertible couch in the living room. There is another hid away be in the love seat sofa in the middle bedroom with the 1 queen bed. There are all brand new mattresses and very comfortable.


The well designed open floor plan has huge windows (the largest that are allowed in a hurricane zone) with lots of great views of the beach and the waves.

Easy and quick access to the beach is about 50 feet from the door. You can have your feet wiggling in the warm sand one minute from the door.

The outside sand shower has plenty of hot water for a relaxing shower and foot shower to use when needed before you enter the main house. There is also a fishing table with hot and cold running water and a deep sink to wash the fish right next to a new white double swing and family size picnic table.

If you enjoy lying around after a long walk on the beach, the living room has a 52'' flat screen TV with Dish Network. The couches in the living room are perfect napping couches. You will see what I mean the first time you grab a cold drink and lie down. Nothing like a nap on a warm summer day with the roar of the ocean in your ears to help you relax...

The spacious Master Bedroom has its own private deck through the French doors. From that deck there is not another house around - it is just sand and beach. Naturally there is a wall mounted flat screen TV with built in DVD player to watch ''Jaws'' while you see and hear the waves in the master suite! The master bedroom also has it own private bathroom, closet and locking door from the rest of the house.

The middle bedroom has been updated with 1 queen size bed and hid-away bed in love seat. We have also added a wall mounted flat screen TV with built in DVD player. This Tv is for DVD's or games only. We have set rabbit ears to pick up a few channels. The living room and Master Bedroom has the Dish Network Channels.
In the Bunk room we have added the old school arcade games. Everyone in the family will enjoy playing these fun games.

If you need it (and we all do!). there is high speed Wi-Fi throughout the house and property to get that last minute work complete or to update Facebook or write your Blog.

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

The beach is great for walking, jogging or building sand castles.

There is plenty of bird watching if you like that, some of the birds we still have not identified! But they are all fun to feed! We had over several seagulls over our heads last week while we were feeding them on the beach!

But the important thing is the beach; the warm sand, the crashing waves, and the salt air! Our home is beautiful and designed to maximize the views and maintain our privacy. 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. We are now taking reservations.

There is not other place on the beach like 'A-Site-to-Sea.'

We are so excited to share our beach home to families that will respect and appreciate it like we do. You will agree 'A Site to Sea' stands up to her name!

Thank you for visiting our website!
