We are at the end of a private road, so very little traffic and safe for little kids.

This is a second home for us, so rest assured that all home comforts and amenities will be included. Just bring your groceries and what you need for a nice day at the beach, and we supply the rest.

About Linda

I love relaxing on the beach with a good book, or watching my kids play in the water and build sand castles. It's a dream come true to finally own a beach home. I'm also addicted to beachcombing - my favorite is finding sea glass. I try to find shark teeth, but I'm not very good at it!

Linda purchased this house in 2017

Why Linda chose Crystal Beach

We couldn't believe our good luck when we saw this property for sale. As soon as we saw the picture online, we knew it had to be ours - it's so cute. The views are fabulous. You are close enough to hear the waves and see the ocean, but the dunes hide the people on the beach, so it seems very private - and very relaxing! Our neighbors are all great too. The property is very close to all the stores (including the iconic Big Store), but because we have open spaces all around us, it seems secluded in a way because we are not right on top of the neighbors like houses in other neighborhoods seem to be. We are in front of the widest area of beach on Bolivar as well, so even when there are high tides, there is a ton of beach available in front of us.

What makes this house unique

We were very excited, and very lucky, to find a house with such easy and convenient beach access! The views are amazing. The upper deck is my favorite place to watch the ships and hear the surf. At night, the stars are so clear and bright. It is just so relaxing. There's just something about being at the beach, where all your cares melt away.

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We love this house! Linda, the owner, was super nice! She was always available to answer any questions. The house was fully furnished, down to the sugar and cream for your coffee. I highly recommend staying here. My family and I will definitely be back in the future!

Great property! Views were better than I expected - you can see all the way to Galveston!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you needed for a fun beach stay is included in this house. All you needed was beach towel and you're set! The house is very clean and the couches & beds are comfortable. Great grill & beach chairs! My only negative remark is that the bedrooms are a bit small. Doesn't really matter in a beach house though. All in all the property is a bargain!

Absolutely perfect trip!! The house is gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most perfect week. The house is beautiful. It's set up well. Has absolutely gorgeous views from multiple spots. There are some super comfy chairs on the second deck along with hammocks. Doesn't get any better than hanging out watching and listening to the waves roll in drinking your morning coffee! There was plenty of room for all of us. The house is laid out well and we had all the things to make our stay fabulous. Linda made sure we were kept up to date with happenings. This is our first time doing a rental and she was great from the time we made the reservation until we left. Which none of us wanted to do because we had such a great time. Access to the beach was perfect. You could easily walk or if you were lugging a ton of stuff it was a quick drive. The outdoor shower was also a favorite. Hands down a favorite for the entire family. Thanks for creating such a wonderful getaway place.

Great location, Perfect size, and Great People!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything you will need! From the kitchen to beach toys, it allows you to only pack the necessities. There is a beach access/path very close to the house so you can walk to the beach very easily. Our morning sunrise walks were amazing!

Great choice for your vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home that includes everything you could need for a great vacation. It was as comfortable as it was beautiful and the owners have thought of everything from kitchen utensils, to comfortable bedding, to very nice beach chairs. We especially enjoyed the chairs on the first floor deck and swinging in the hammocks on the second floor. The views are beautiful and beach access is easy. An added bonus was the nice fenced in yard allowing us to take our pet. We would definitely rent this again!
