Crystal Beach house description

Crystal Beach is a 15-minute ferry ride from Galveston, and most of the time, a pod of dolphins will escort you both ways. (Bring some bread or popcorn to toss to the sea gulls on the way.) Then it's a 10-minute drive to The Edgewater Beach House, that proudly sits right on the beach/corner lot with unobstructed viiews. It is an enchanted place as some of our guest like to call it , with panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico. If this is your first visit, you'll be greeted by your host. And if you're like most guests, you'll have three experiences in succession. The first is the 'Wow!' reaction as you step through the front door. The second is the 'Ah' reaction as you lower your travel-weary body into a comfortable chair on our 800-square-foot deck. And the third is the 'Oh, yes!' reaction as you sip a complimentary libation and watch the waves roll in, while the kids play with a thoughtful selection of stuffed animals and toys. You can unpack later while you enjoy this custom built home that was built to thrill, that you will want to come back to each year and share with other friends and family for future stays.

We recently added a wonderful addition to this home, which is a custom built bar/ entertaning area for BBQ's and gatherings with thatched roof down stairs that has ample seating for leisure time. This same area boast an outdoor fish cleaning area with Trek outdoor table and double Kohler sink, along with outdoor shower and guest have their own storage area for beach equipment.

Tons of Fun!: From May 1 through September 15, Edgewater rents by the week. That's seven days and six nights. But that may not be enough, there's so much to do. After a leisurely breakfast on the deck, you can take the ferry to Galveston. There you'll find the three pyramids of Moody Gardens: rain forest, aquarium, and 'discovery.' Plus an IMAX theater. Also the Lone Star Flight Museum, great food and shopping in The Strand historic district, ship tours (submarine, destroyer escort, and square rigger), nine historic houses, and 'The Great Storm' multimedia presentation of the 1900 hurricane the killed some 10,000 people. You'll love our beach, of course, but don't miss one of the two Schlitterbahn water parks with a wave pool, mud-rider raft rides, and an uphill water coaster! The park even has an enclosed facility that's open year round.

Seafood Fancier's Paradise. : As dawn signals the start of a new day, you'll see the shrimp boats headed out to sea. Then in late morning, you'll hear a little bell signaling the arrival of 'the fish lady' with her truck full of the ocean's bounty. Just pop downstairs and pick out your dinner, which you'll grill in the spacious area under the house. Of course you can catch a mess of crabs yourself, throw a line in from a bridge (or from the shore), or arrange to go deep-sea fishing. With great seafood, a great beach, and so many things to do, Crystal Beach offers the quiet of a little fishing town and the attractions of a big city. No wonder so many guests book for the following year during their current stay. Come join us and see for yourself!

Location

Car: Necessary

Crystal Beach has been called Galveston's best-kept secret. But vacationers have begun to discover us. Many of our guests stay here both before and after taking a cruise. Four cruise lines call Galveston home: Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, and Celebrity. (Check the Galveston Cruises Web site for expert advice and great rates.) And, during March and April, both the birds and the birders who take joy in spotting them arrive. Our federally protected wetlands and sanctuaries offer ideal resting places for migrating feathered friends. As a very family-oriented place, we do not open our second home to spring breakers or other large, potentially rambunctious, groups. In fact, the ideal match is three couples, with or without kids, who want a truly memorable beach vacation. Edgewater offers the best of both worlds: A quiet, fully equipped waterfront beach house, and the glories of Galveston, just half an hour away.
