Located in the 'Heart of Crystal Beach' where you can enjoy a stroll to the beach with direct access 300' away, no vehicle necessary. The beach is the main attraction where we like to 'treasure' hunt, make sand castles and relaxing. Fishing is a passion for us, whether in the surf or bay. While bay fishing requires a boat, there are numerous fishing guides in the area.
A favorite pass time, crabbing! It's fun for all ages and great to eat!
Here we are surrounded by National Wildlife Refuges so put birding at the top of your list of must-do!
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: As high school sweethearts at Deer Park High School in the late 60's we always loved saltwater! So even tho we moved to East Texas in the 70's, we never lost our love for saltwater fishing, crabbing and combing the beach. Now retired, we spend most of our time in Crystal Beach as our son and his family live there as well, so we get to be involved with them!
Crystal Beach is a small community with a big heart, the folks here are just really nice! Seems there is always something going on, but yet it's quiet and relaxing, perfect scenario!
When we decided to build The Spoonbill (one of my favorite birds), we wanted a cool beach atmosphere with a little cottage eclectic decor...as it turned out, we love it! It's our hopes that others will come spend some time here to enjoy our home and community. Beware...just smelling the salt air is contagious that makes you want to keep coming back!
